A couple days ago I noticed a few young men on Twitter laughing about this quote:
“I just wanted to make things clear I didn’t “sleep around.” Most of my relationships have been long term I have only been with 18 guys”
but I had no idea what they were referring to until I saw Vox’s post, Fourteen years of fun. The quote is from an AskMen Reddit, Guys, I am a single Indian[32f] woman. And I feel like I missed out on my opportunity of ever getting married and having a family.
My first thought was that this woman is simply fishing, trying to use AskMen Reddit to trawl for a man who will feel sorry for her and who may be enticed by what she reveals about herself in the comment thread, such as the fact that she earns north of $100,000 per year, works out, is in excellent shape, and would “take anyone as long as they were kind respectful. Around my income level and were fit.”
However, the more I think about it, the more it seems to me that articles like hers are a good thing simply because they expose the lie. Feminists have sold young women a bill of goods, that they can live like men, work like men, have sex like men, and then turn back into women when they feel like it. We laugh at a woman like this sometimes and make fun of her and say, “Didn’t she know that she’d end up like this?”
No, she didn’t know that. That’s because when you are 17 years old, you don’t know much, especially in this culture of extended adolescence. And when you have been told from a very young age that, as a girl, it is your destiny to Have It All exactly When You Want It, I’m sure it is very baffling to find yourself in your thirties with no husband and none in sight, with the dawning realization that your job and lonely apartment are not nearly as fulfilling as being a wife and mother would have been.
One of Vox’s commenters writes:
I am feeling joy from her pain.
I would pay money to watch this fkg whr cry herself to sleep.
Personally, I feel no joy in this woman’s pain. I don’t think a White Knight should ride in to save her because I think she should suffer the natural consequences of her decisions so that other young women may see and learn from her errors, but I take no pleasure in the fact that she will have this lot in life. However, what most of us don’t seem to understand is that young women make the terrible choices that they are making because they are told from an early age that these are actually good choices. Some girls are able to resist that message, which saturates every aspect of the media and schools, but most girls aren’t, and they don’t develop the necessary wisdom until it is too late.
It is easy to laugh at a 32-year-old woman who has suffered such consequences for her bad choices. It becomes a lot less funny when you realize that she was trained to make, and rewarded for making, these bad choices at a time when she was too young and naive to understand what she was doing.
I plan to have a certain pair of early-teens girls I know read this woman’s Reddit story. Parents: I know you don’t want to discuss these kinds of subjects with your young daughters, but the time to give our daughters the wisdom they need to navigate a sick, feministic, hedonistic Sexual Market Place (SMP)/Marriage Market Place (MMP) is before they enter those markets.
