Some time ago one of the readers of this blog posted a link to a video with the title “The 6 ft Thot Standard”, which is embedded further below. Feel free to watch it, but doing so is not necessary for this post if you’re pressed for time. That video is a cynical commentary on a dating experiment in which some “woke” media organization put a reasonably attractive single woman inside a circle of single guys. The twist of that video was that even though the people were physically in the same room, they used a group chat app. First that woman posed a question or a demand. Afterwards, the guys got to respond. It was a twenty-guys-versus-one-woman situation. One or two guys walked away in the beginning because they did not find that woman attractive, to the bewilderment of the female in the room. According to the men, this could have been an 18 or 19 guys vs 1 female bukkake situation. Yet, that is not how things turned out. Go watch the video, if this piqued your interest:
The outcome of that experiment was that the woman ended up alone. All the guys bowed out. As the viewer, you almost get the impression that she’s pulling more demands out of her hat just to narrow down the pool of guys, instead of picking one of the available ones. Sure, if you hunt for a unicorn, you are going to stay single. It was also noteworthy that she seemed to care little about what the guys wanted. It was all just about her. The deal-breaker was height. She insisted on a guy being at least 6 ft tall, which means that she excluded a good 90% of guys based on that criterion.
That was the video. Now let’s talk about reality. In my view, that video is a powerful allegory of real-world dating. Women are the center of attention and have plenty of guys vying for them. In their delusion, however, they pile on demands. No, just having a stable job isn’t enough. It has to be a six-figure income. She may be a bit on the chubby side, which she euphemistically describes as “curvy”, yet the billionaire of her dreams needs to be buff. She may not be particularly tall for a woman, but her Prince Charming of course needs to be very tall for a man. If you listen to women, you could be forgiven for believing that all men are at least 6 ft. tall and being 6 ft. 3 in. tall is kind of average, when the latter is comfortably in the top 2 % in terms of height. Speaking of height, it is almost absurd how skewed perceptions are. I’m 6 ft. 3 in. tall and I am used to being the tallest guy in the room, even if there are hundreds of people in the room. I sometimes meet guys who are about my height. I almost never meet anyone who is taller than me.
With money, it’s the same. A few percent make six figures in the US. However, women having absurd demands is not an US-exclusive phenomenon. For instance, only a few percent of employees in Germany make more than 5,000 Euros a month, and many of those tend to be quite a bit older and well-established in their careers. Yet, you have women who stock shelves part-time who think that any guy they’re seriously dating would have to bring in five or six grand a month. It’s ludicrous. Status is also an issue. There are some guys who make a fair amount of money, but they work in jobs that may not enjoy a particularly high status. A prime example are tradesmen making good money. Similarly, there is a fair number of jobs in the manufacturing industry that are extremely well-paid, yet the guys that hold them lack one thing your modern woman insists on as well: having an “edumacation”.
“Edumacation” is another issue that ensures that the number of available men your average woman could date is a lot lower than it otherwise would be. She was told that “any degree is a good degree”, so she wasted years of her life and wrecked her credit score by studying Social Media Communications at Moron U. I’m barely exaggerating. I once bumped into a chick in Berlin who told me she studied Public Relations at some private university with a shoddy reputation to the tune of 20,000 Euros a year. She had finished her degree and was working as an intern for 400 Euros a month and only got by because her parents financially supported her. If you point out the math to them, you’ll be branded a misogynist, I suppose. Of course, any guy she’s seriously date would have to “drive at least a nice Mercedes.”
You would think that once looks, money, and status are reasonably well taken care off, you’d have a shot at your typical Western women. Yet, they then pull out even more demands. She may not want to have kids, and you have to be fine with her wanting to have an “open relationship”. She may insist that you change your eating habits. Oh man, that one is quite something1 If you’re a soyboy, you can bet your nuts that your whale of a girlfriend will force her eating habits onto you. She’ll tell you, not ask, to become a vegetarian, because that’s “good for her health”. Meanwhile, she stuffs her face with sweets between salads.
If men were as picky as your stereotypical Western woman is, we would have even more men joining the “marriage strike”. Japan has been experimenting on that front. Their women just kept piling on demands and now something like a third to one half of their young men don’t want to have anything to do with women at all. Funny how that works. For context, you have to know that Japanese women have a reputation for being total ball-busters. They prefer sitting at home and spending their husbands money, who is working towards death at the workplace (karoshi). The reward for his hard labor is pocket money from his wife. Yes, you read that right. They bring home a fat paycheck. Their wives claim it, take the money, and give a small fraction to their husband to spend. There is an interesting parallel to the West because once those women realized that men are checking out, they started calling them “herbivores” and other expletives. All this shaming just made men say, “fuck this”, and then they went their own way. This has become a self-reinforcing dynamic.
In the West, we see a similar pattern being carried out. The standards of women are getting absurdly high. They also don’t realize that their “confidence” and “success” is commonly the result of affirmative action and diversity policies. Now that they are doing so well, the men of course need to step up their game. Men realize that dating “in the current year” is a shit show, so they go their own way. You would think that women would wise up and try to become more attractive so that the dwindling numbers of men who want to commit may pick them. Instead, we now have shaming campaigns in the mass media. That is one way to bring down a society. Your entitled “thot” rejecting 20 men in a social experiment does this on an individual level. On a societal level, a large number of her sisters do the same.
A sliver of hope for men is that they don’t just sit in a circle around one woman. They go after many women and they may even find some that aren’t quite as toxic as your stereotypical poster girl for feminism and female empowerment is. Yet, women may very well reject every single man that comes up to them, for decades. Sure, Chad and Tyrone may double-team her, but they won’t commit to her. Meanwhile, all the guys who would take her get told that they are not open-minded enough (she’s a closed-minded hypocrite who doesn’t recognize a logical argument even if you spell it out for her), not successful enough at their job (she got into Harvard, followed by a cushy job at Google thanks to diversity policies), not buff enough (she is a bit chubby), and their face isn’t chiseled enough (she’s rather homely-looking). The men leave the circle they were sitting in, and either go their own way, following their interests or look for a more pleasant woman. In the end, those women are left behind, wondering not only where all the good men have gone, but where all the men have gone. Surely, finding 20 guys who would want to consider dating your typical unattractive woman in her 30s will be quite a challenge. I would love seeing a video about that.
