Ok . We all know enforced monogamy is a batshit idea . Like some Golem-in-theory-form it rears its ugly head whenever male violence occurs . Send out the “you won’t fuck us it’s your fault” Golem .
What we also know is this , that in areas where there is an imbalance amongst the sexes – a shortage of available women, if you will – male violence towards women , and themselves , increases . This is a fact . It’s been seen in the bride snatching phenomenon in parts of sino-Asia ,to the wholesale kidnapping of young women by group such as Daesh or Boko Haram.
We must be honest about this , not try and rage it away as mere incel agit prop .
The western incel , unlike his brother elsewhere , isn’t facing any physical shortage of women per se , just ones willing to make themselves sexually available to him . It is his sick fantasy that tells him otherwise .
Never mind . My point is this . We must acknowledge that the function of patriarchy is – to frame female sexual availability as an obligation as – inimical to to us , and be honest about how that is and why, rather than let ourselves be provoked into the counter tactic of denying facts as mere fiction of the masculine mind . The only thing men are being dishonest about is the structural causes , patriarchy and – latterly – capitalism , and how they is dismantled .
In short – if we want to counter their argument – acknowledge the facts and put it to them that since they are the problem , that it is their reaction – their actions , kidnappings and shootings – then it is theirs to fix . They sold themselves the idea that they were entitled to women , literally through the ages and latterly with neoliberalism .
By dehumanising women they are dehumanising themselves .
What’s the end game here?
Do they not realise that the hegemony they desire would come only at the cost of catastrophe ? That even in Atwood’s seminal work “The Handmaids Tale “ , women aren’t available to anyone , and that most – if lucky – do not qualify for a “wife” their ego imagines ?
Ask any man – expressing empathy for the incel’s interpretation – does he really feel brotherly sympathy for men who’d nuke the world , and burn it , so they could fuck in the ashes ? Because that is the mind of the bride snatcher , the Daesh kidnapper , the incel .
And any man not wholly horrified by such nihilism – encompassing also the “good bloke” narrative of the family annihilator – is little better .
That is my issue with Jordan Petersen . Not his reference material , but his exculpatory use of known anthropological theory .
Like those who use anthropology to excuse racism and eugenics , his message relies on inchoate feminist rage as justification , proof that the feminine is the chaotic , and that man and masculine is order . That black is savagery , white is order.
Just as white supremacists channel black anger to their profit.
So we must not be afraid of anthropology . We must stand up , say coldly to them , these MRA’s etcetera – “so what ,so what if we are female , or black ? Whatever, we are human . If you cannot deal with that , then you must learn to fix your problem , or live with it .
Or the world will burn at the hand of the ultimate manifestation of patriarchy , the incel.
