who wants to see me go white knight and sexist at the same time?
I do! I do!
Alright, let’s do it.
The White Knight part
This kind of manipulative bullcrap is actually pretty anti-woman. It’s perpetuating an idea popular among MGTOW and PUA types that women are gold-digging whores who don’t care about you unless you have lots of money. This, for the most part, is bunk and it’s kinda bullshit for them to create a video that gives modern men more reasons to hate women (as if we don’t have enough, right guys?).
When it comes to attraction, men are more prone to initially judge looks while women are more prone to initially judge resources. This is not a good or bad thing, it’s just how it is. After getting to know the person, if men continue to only value looks and women continue to only value money, that’s where they might deserve a label of “superficial” or “gold-digger,” respectively.
In his book, Models: How to Attract Women with Honesty, Mark Manson contends that women are attracted to men of high social status (i.e., the man’s place within the tribe). Things like charisma, nice clothes, a fancy car, having lots of friends, being physically strong, having confidence, etc., all signal high status to women. Thus, a guy who looks like a bum has NO chance in landing a quality girl but you assholes act like there’s something wrong with the female because she doesn’t jump at the chance to sleep with a hobo.
(Not sure how white-knighty that actually was, but I gave it a shot. Now comes the easy part.)
The sexist part
The most valuable thing a woman can offer a man is her sexuality. This is a biological and evolutionary point, not really my opinion. While she is young, her sexuality has a higher value on the dating market but as she ages, that value literally diminishes.
Therefore, while a woman is in her biological prime, she must do all she can to attract and secure a man with the greatest amount of resources and thus be taken care of for the rest of her life and, more importantly, have resources for her children. This explains why men flaunt resources and women flaunt their looks. Again, this isn’t good or bad, it’s just how it is.
What throws a wrench in this scheme is now woman have their own resources. This isn’t a bad thing in and of itself, but women seem to not know how to handle it. They’ve become over-confident, less willing to engage in self-improvement, and care less and less about making themselves into something that’s more attractive to men. In the words of a friend of mine who has quite a few female friends, “There are so many girls I know who think they’re 10’s. But they’re not.” And the trouble with this attitude is that it’s a recipe for women to be less happy.
Think I’m crazy? Head to the East. Eastern Europe, Asia, whatever. See how the women are so much more feminine and pleasant. That’s what guys want, ladies. A fun girl who’s a sweetheart. Supportive, kind, and doesn’t take herself too seriously. Not a sarcastic comedian, not a drinking buddy, not a sports-bro, not a CEO. Sorry (but not sorry).
Of course, this kind of talk is banned today. Of course, it’s sexist for me to simply state what qualities I find attractive. And of course, it’s fine for women to complain about the lack of good men and how they want their guys to do this and this and this, but the second I speak up for feminine qualities in a way that approaches the traditional, I’m the asshole.
P.S. Just so I can try to get racist on this post, too, I find it funny that the guy dressed as a bum is Asian, the race that survey after survey indicates is least appealing to women on average.
