Men are attracted to youth and beauty, not careers and power

Lauren Southern. Young and beautiful. From /pol.

The continuing disaster that plagues so-called “educated” women is the discernible and disturbing lack of any men willing to put up with their shit. A “new study” supposedly proves what those of us in the manosphere have known for quite some time.

Career women find shortage of ‘eligible’ men in marriage market.

It’s pay-walled so I’ll link the good bits.

“They outnumber men at university, but a generation of high-flying women are now grappling with an unwelcome outcome: it’s hard to find eligible men whom they consider to be good marriage material.

“The problem is not so much the men’s lack of commitment or poor relationship skills but the shortage of men with degrees and higher incomes, according to a new study.”

Even when women can’t get their act together to nail down a bloke, it’s still our fault for their hopelessness. The article was written by a man too. Probably trying to suck up to some chick in order to play hide the sausage. Fat chance, mate.

“It states: “Unmarried women, on average, are looking for a man who has an income that is about 66 per cent higher and a likelihood of having a college degree that is about 49 per cent higher than what is available.”

Vague dreams of equality go right out the window when it’s some tart’s potential to remodel the house multiple times over the next few decades that’s on the line. Of course, women have succeeded in driving any men with half a brain out of universities, so they’re on a hiding to nothing as regards to the degree part of the marriage prerequisite.

But it seems that the writer of this dross has at least stuck his nose into our neck of the woods.

“For women, marriage often involves “hypergamy”, the process of “marrying up”. But it seems many women have failed to adjust their expectations as their personal fortunes have risen.”

Hypergamy is in parentheses so as to underline its inherent false value. The very idea that women might seek to marry up is appalling, although this comes right after the article has explicitly stated that women want a guy with 66% more cash than they earn.

Hmmm ….

“Harry Benson, research director at the Marriage Foundation, a pressure group, says: “The marriage market may be further skewed against high-flying women because potential male partners are still predisposed to ‘marrying down’.” Susanna Abse, a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, says both sexes have played a part in creating the problem.

“You have got high-status, high-income men who can choose from a market of well-educated women and then you have got a lot of ordinary men whom women don’t want because they don’t meet their expectations,” she says.

The cognitive dissonance in this quote is incredible.

Ladies, if you’re listening, let your humble manosphere commentator enlighten you on your little dilemma. You see, the reason that you can’t find a high-flying guy is not because we’re predisposed to marrying down. You women have expectations of us men. As the article states, you want the moolah and the credentialism. Your mistake is assuming that we are attracted to the same things that are on your bucket list.

Au contraire, we are attracted to youth and beauty. Those are the two items that are at the top of our bucket list and we will get as much youth and beauty as our dosh and fancy-pants degrees will allow us.

Your problem is that you have squandered your own youth and beauty on the futile pursuit of those attributes that you desire in men, namely careers and power. It is somewhat baffling behavior on many levels. For example, in order to come up with a similar tactic in the male camp, ie men who chase youth and beauty attributes for themselves, then you’d have to turn to the homosexual community. They’re obsessed with being young and beautiful.

So now you have careers and earning potential and yet you’re looking for a mate who has the same. It doesn’t make much sense when you think about it. Not only are men searching for youth and beauty, but in general we are repulsed by women with careers and power. There are very few women who can successfully pull that off and still retain their femininity, their feline charm, their grace and their female mystery.

And before you all start jumping to conclusions, you’re not one of those very rare women.

Look at Ann Coulter. Top of her game, a conservative woman, wildly successful and yet …

Single. Stone cold motherless single, without any vague hope of ending the single pain. She was beautiful once … and young …

Australia has been going wild about Lauren Southern; well, she better get hitched and knocked up while she still has the two traits that we’re after or it’s going to be a guaranteed future of posting cat pics on Instagram.

“Might women be prepared to adjust their expectations? The academics say some high-flying women may be prepared to “marry down”, but caution that the weight of research suggests that, given the choice, most unmarried women choose instead to remain single.”

There’s no choosing going on, sweethearts. Your only choice in this whole tragic farce was the choice you made to put careers and power before any hope of personal happiness. You swallowed the “we are women so we can have it alls!” Kool-Aid.

Well, you can’t have it all. Suck it up, buttercups.

Oh, and you don’t have careers either; you have lousy jobs. Something that we’ve done for you since time immemorial. You’re welcome.

One last thing:

“Benson says: “Better educated women quite rightly means the bar is rising. Smarter women deserve smarter men.”

Education doesn’t make you smarter. You don’t get any more intelligence points. If you’re all so smart, how come you can’t even convince a man to put up with you?

    So what happens when husbands and wives get older Adam? Does life for the man lose all meaning when his wife’s tits start to sag?
    What an incredibly shallow and meaningless life you must live if this is your attitude to love and marriage.

    • John Sheppard

      I think you missed the point. He states what men are attracted to, not suggesting they will leave their older wives for the younger beauty (although granted some do). In any case, women initiate most of the divorces in Australia, so maybe they are doing the guy a favor so he can find his young beauty.

      Are you not attracted to young beautiful women? I certainly am, and always will be while blood is pumping through my veins. It doesn’t mean I will leave my current partner though!

      • Dan Flynn

        I’m as red blooded as the next man but the fact is beauty is skin deep and youth is transient. Choosing a life partner with those front and center is a recipe for a shit marriage in my opinion.
        That said, sure, it’s super important to be attracted to your wife and have a rockin’ sex life, no argument there!
        I just find Adam’s perspective of male/female relations as immature, shallow and devoid of humanity.

        • John Sheppard

          Can you give an example of where he paints a picture of immature/shallow/etc male/female relations?

          My take from the article is that women need to choose whether they want a powerful career, or a family with a suitable partner. Having both is very unlikely, and once they realise this, it is generally too late. Most of the eligible guys have already been snapped up and they are left with a shallow pool to choose from.

          • Dan Flynn

            Hey John, I’ve read Adam Piggot’s blog extensively including all of his XYZ articles. I take a particular interest in him because I’ve never known anyone to be so wrong on so many levels while thinking he’s the smartest guy in the world.
            I’m married with two kids and my wife earns more than me. Most of the women I know have kids and a good career.
            Adam is peddling a myth that makes certain men (not saying you) feel a smug satisfaction that justifies their negative attitudes towards women.
            Have a nice day.

          • John Sheppard

            I understand you feel that way, however I was after a single example which you neglected to provide. I have read a bit of Adam’s work via XYZ, and I don’t find what he says “to be so wrong” as you put it. Definitely do not agree with him on some topics, such as his seemingly irrational hatred for Jordan Peterson, but find common ground on other topics.

            We are creatures of our learned experiences, so as a result my experience with going through a divorce and losing most of my assets definitely turned me against western women. As a result, what I see from Adam makes a lot of sense to me. I don’t hate western women, and know a lot who would be marriage material if someone had not realised their value and snapped them up already.

            After all that, I have still jumped back into marriage with a wonderful Vietnamese lady who spends more time worrying about me than herself. I in turn provide for the family and spoil her whenever I can. It is amazing having someone who doesn’t want everything from you and then give nothing in return.

          • Dan Flynn

            I wish you all the best with your marriage John!

          • Repeal fake marriage

            I have to agree with Adam here Dan. If all women were career driven, the human race would cease to exist as these women are just not what most men are looking for. I also still do not believe that women are happy, pretending to like having to work while raising kids.

          • Dan Flynn

            Hi Steve,
            I know so many women (including my wife) who have kids and a career. I wouldn’t call them ‘career driven’ but they are full time employed (or close to it) and are able to balance family life very well. I think Adam is painting a bit of a caricature of women really. I’m sure there are career-driven, money hungry women out there but, in my world at least, they are not that common.

          • White Robot

            Dan Flynn: young simp.
            Educated, well employed women in soft fields such as law, accounting and the public service pair up with pretty simpletons that won’t call them out on bad behaviour and leave them after the children can do housework. Have a beer and think about that.

          • Dan Flynn

            Mr Robot, I just want to give you a big hug 🙂

          • Maryanne

            And you’re right. Women have been brainwashed that they must have a career when as Jordan Peterson has pointed out most people – men and women alike – just have jobs to keep bread on the table.

    • entropy

      But choosing a partner for his income and education is deep and meaningless.

      Did you read the article?

      • Dan Flynn

        Yes I did, and I would agree that marrying for money, education or power is meaningless. I just think it’s pretty rare, at least where I come from.
        I know Adam is talking about older women in this article but he is making (and has made) a clear point around ‘women can’t have both’ in terms of career and marriage which is bullshit.
        I’m relating my own experience of knowing many – I’m talking 50-60 women – in my own work/school/friendship community who can balance motherhood with career well. Maybe it’s only leftists who can do it so well!
        I think Adam has narrow views around women and it’s more of a reflection on how he sees the world. I do not share his view of the world and have very different experiences of women, marriage etc.

        • John Sheppard

          Just remember Dan that what people portray in public is not always representative of the reality of their private life. What you see might be what they want you to see.

  • James

    Saw that headline Adam. Didn’t need to read it.
    Who’d want a stuck up nag for a wife. Nothin’d ever be good enough.

    I won the lottery with marriage. The real one. Was drawn to the same things all men are but the bonus I got was the most wonderful mother for my children I could’ve ever hoped for. Thirty years on it still baffles me how lucky I am.

      Luck bugger. That’s a dream that 90s babies will probably never experience.

  • Ted Dolkens

    Once again, the desires of men and women diverge. Men in positions of power desire not just good looking and young women, but usually prefer them to be relatively simple so when they get home from a hard day at the office they can get home, relax and not have to put up with too many demands from their other half. Men therefore prefer women who are happy just being beautiful.Women that have adapted to live in the high pressure business world have generally adapted an aggressive ]/competing manner, something not appealing to men. Women who attract higher level men are generally beautiful, happy to look up to their husbands, and are happy to life in the social light created by their husbands positions, They usually confine their efforts at power to the closed doors of their environs where they do not detract from their husbands position in society.

    • D Man

      Yes, all important points there Yes. Enjoying a happy marriage your self?

    Funny how ‘educated women” need so much mansplaining.

    Is it time to bring ’em home ?

    I’m a dude and I hate sitting in front of a computer screen for 8 hrs a day. I don’t get why women find it so empowering. It’s boring, it dulls the mind, makes you fat and you have to give half of your earnings to he state. Men are even 90% more likely to die at the workplace than a woman.

    Honestly I’d kill to have been born with a pussy and be able to stay home looking after kids and get a free house if I’m sick of the marriage.

    If you want to work and be a successful business woman, by all means, but relinquish your tax payer funded “respect women” billboards, special traffic lights, affirmative action and right to make rape accusations without proof. Go the pub, have a bar fight and don’t complain sexist when the boys make locker room talk. You’ve chosen to be a man. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.

    • D Man

      Well not all women define a career as sitting in front of a computer, being dull of mind, fat and bored. Projecting much?

      I reckon in your state of mind if you were born with a pussy all you’d do is stay home, fingerblasting yourself because being the potential incel you sound like, you’re provably not getting any pussy at the moment.

        …And the white knight emerges and jumps to the poor weeminz aid “look at me ladies, I’m protecting your poor hurt fee fees, please give sex or at least let me orbit in your shadow while you chase the big burly tradie” he says with a shy look on his face. “I’ll even give you my credit card”, Dman the cuck murmurs but by then its too late. The leggy blonde puts her arm around the mysterious man only known as 9×19 and they leave the bar together, leaving the cuck in a crying heap in the corner. After a night of disappointment at the bar, the cuck finally returns home to his mother’s basement, trolls a few internet forums and then opens his copy of Maxim. Up and down goes his right hand for about 10 seconds before he finally dozes off…

        • D Man

          Lol. Way off the mark.

          And still, it sounds like you’re projecting. That little fantasy to depicted is written so well I think it comes from your lived experience.

          Sounds like some lady hurt your fee fees one too many times, huh?

          • 9x19parabellum

            Ok, lets backtrack to the original comment.
            1. What then do they define as a successful career? Very few will do physical work such as a trade. Working in an office causes those issues to anybody. We do it out of necessity not out of choice.

            2. What is wrong with them looking after kids? feminine traits are not a sign of weakness in a women if that’s what you were implying. In fact I have much admiration for ladies who take that path. And yes the family court system is very biased.
            3. If a women chooses to become a business woman (as my comment suggested) they are competing with men and are therefore choosing to be men. I see it as hypocritical to play strong/independent one day and victim the next.

            So, how about we lay off the ad hominems and you can address my points as to why you might disagree?

      “I hate sitting in front of a computer screen for 8 hrs a day. I don’t get why women find it so empowering.”

      It’s actually a relatively recent thing. I’ve sat in front of computers as a programmer/analyst for 15 hours a day for nearly forty years. For much of that time women wanted nothing to do with us nerds. Women only want in when there’s some cache attached to the field.

  • Bronson

    While Mr Piggott is painting a bit of a caricature this article, which recapitulates others of his, is a rebuttal of the ‘Sex in the City’ style articles / ‘studies’ in trashy women’s magazines addressing the feminist lament “where have all the good men gone”, which is itself a caricature. So within this context he makes good if oversimplified distinction between mating strategies.
