Are you smarter than a primitive Stone Aged woman?

fifth grader

Today, the primitive women of 1830s West Africa whose culture was unchanged from the Stone Age era are up against Ivy League educated third-wave feminist Millennial women.

Let’s start with the Stone-agers.

J.L. Wilson was an American missionary to Africa beginning in the 1830s.  In 1856, he wrote Western Africa: Its History, Condition, and Prospects in which he described some of his observations about social and family structure.  He writes (highlighting mine):

Polygamy is a favorite institution here as it is in every other part of Africa.  In their estimation, it lies at the very foundation of all social order, and society would scarcely be worth preserving without it.  The highest aspiration to which an African ever rises is to have a large number of wives.  His happiness, his reputation, his influence, his position in society all depend upon this.  The consequence is that the so-called wives are little better than slaves.  They have no other purpose in life than to administer to the wants and gratify the passions of their lords, who are masters and owners rather than husbands.  It is not a little singular, however, that the females upon whom the burden of this degrading institution mainly rests, are quite as much interested in its continuance as the men themselves.  A woman would infinitely prefer to be one of a dozen wives of a respectable man, than to be the sole representative of a man who had not the force of character to raise himself above the one-woman level.

…Each [wife] is mistress of her own household, and is not liable to be interfered with by any of her co-wives.  She provides for herself, her children, and entertains her husband as often as he favors her with his company.

Let’s add up their score:

  • Relationship status (+1 for monogamy,+0 for being part of a harem)? Harem +0
  • receive reciprocal sexual pleasure? No (they exist to gratify their lords’ pleasure). +0
  • provided for? No. +0
  • married? Yes. +1
  • children? Yes. +1

Total score: 2

And now let’s see how the Ivy League educated third-wave feminist Millennial women fare:

At a booth in the back, three handsome twentysomething guys in button-downs are having beers. They are Dan, Alex, and Marty, budding investment bankers at the same financial firm, which recruited Alex and Marty straight from an Ivy League campus. (Names and some identifying details have been changed for this story.) When asked if they’ve been arranging dates on the apps they’ve been swiping at, all say not one date, but two or three: “You can’t be stuck in one lane … There’s always something better.” “If you had a reservation somewhere and then a table at Per Se opened up, you’d want to go there,” Alex offers.

“Guys view everything as a competition,” he elaborates with his deep, reassuring voice. “Who’s slept with the best, hottest girls?” With these dating apps, he says, “you’re always sort of prowling. You could talk to two or three girls at a bar and pick the best one, or you can swipe a couple hundred people a day—the sample size is so much larger. It’s setting up two or three Tinder dates a week and, chances are, sleeping with all of them, so you could rack up 100 girls you’ve slept with in a year.”

[…] But Marty, who prefers Hinge to Tinder (“Hinge is my thing”), is no slouch at “racking up girls.” He says he’s slept with 30 to 40 women in the last year: “I sort of play that I could be a boyfriend kind of guy,” in order to win them over, “but then they start wanting me to care more … and I just don’t.”

…[The girls] are seniors from Boston College, all in New York for summer internships, ranging from work in a medical-research lab to a luxury department store. They’re attractive and fashionable, with bright eyes highlighted with dark eyeliner wings. None of them are in relationships, they say. I ask them how they’re finding New York dating.

“New York guys, from our experience, they’re not really looking for girlfriends,” says the blonde named Reese. “They’re just looking for hit-it-and-quit-it on Tinder.”

“There is no dating. There’s no relationships,” says Amanda, the tall elegant one. “They’re rare. You can have a fling that could last like seven, eight months and you could never actually call someone your ‘boyfriend.’ [Hooking up] is a lot easier. No one gets hurt—well, not on the surface.”

They give a wary laugh.

…“A lot of guys are lacking in that department,” says Courtney with a sigh. “What’s a real orgasm like? I wouldn’t know.”

They all laugh knowingly.

“I know how to give one to myself,” says Courtney.

“Yeah, but men don’t know what to do,” says Jessica, texting.

…“I’ll get a text that says, ‘Wanna fuck?’ ” says Jennifer, 22, a senior at Indiana University Southeast, in New Albany. “They’ll tell you, ‘Come over and sit on my face,’ ” says her friend, Ashley, 19.

Oh, that’s rough!  But let’s see how they scored:

  • Relationship status (+1 for monogamy,+0 for being part of a harem)? Harem +0
  • receive reciprocal sexual pleasure? No. +0
  • provided for? No. +0
  • married? No. +0
  • children? No. +0

Total Score: 0

So there we have it.  The primitive Stone-Aged women had to put up with being part of a harem, didn’t get to enjoy the sex, and weren’t provided for, but they got to belong somewhere, be part of a family, have a husband, and children.  The Ivy League Millennial third wave sex-positive ladies got…nothing. Zip.  Nada.

So why do they do it?  Mr. Free Northerner, who takes a dim view of the modern men and women portrayed in the VF article, believes the women do it because they are addicted to the attention and affirmation:

This article by itself is justification for patriarchy. These young women are addicted to attention. They are not enjoying themselves, they are neither respected nor loved, they are starved for affection, and they are willingly making themselves sex toys for men who don’t care in the least about them and enjoy hurting them. It is destroying their emotional core, but they can’t quit their addiction.

They need a stern father to drag them back home and force them to respect themselves.

The men are aimless and alienated. They need responsibility. Instead, they get untold free poon. Why do they need to care, when they can drown themselves in hedonism? They need the women’s fathers to to be cut off from empty masturbation with their breathing sex toys and be forced to contribute and care before hedonism can take them, so they can grow into men.

On the other hand, Mrs. Susan Walsh suspects this is the usual sex-positive propaganda hit piece that doesn’t truly represent Millennial women.

But no matter who is right, I think we can safely say to those Millennial women who swallowed the sex-positive feminist lie:

YOU are NOT smarter than a primitive Stone Aged woman.

    • In line with what Bike Bubba said, Commenter Liz, a married military wife who is a nurse, brought something up yesterday at my usual haunt. She said her GYN said that 9/10 of her STD cases are on Tinder. What is curious about Tinder is that it is all based on the initial impression from one photograph.
      Between this and the becomeing a go to resource for false accusers, do you think it may be a good idea for men to delete their facebook account?
      It is my belief that women, collectively, determine the marketplace. Men get to react.


      • Ugh. The “triumph of feminism” is to create a sexual marketplace that is 100x more degrading to women (and men for that matter) than the 1970s singles bar culture. I can imagine smart young ladies saying “would you stop trying to help me out here? It’s killing me–no, I mean literally!”


    • Good point. Yet another feminist lie, this one with complicity from corrupt sources within the medical establishment, is that there is such a thing as “safe” promiscuity.


      • The funny thing is that the CDC is pretty honest about it in their research. They’ve found that half of adults (meaning almost all single adults who are not widowed) have or have had one, that the average person will get four over their lives, and that 40% of teens (that’s “most sexually active teens”) have had or have one.

        (kids, read that carefully–the person offering you quick, easy sex likely has a gift that keeps on giving….adults, you too)

        It’s really one of those questions of why it is that the data are not being fed to doctors, schools, and such.


  1. It’s completely off topic but , I wanted to share where it would be read.

    Why would radical women be more inclined to target Christians for violence? Two years ago, on the other blog, I linked a video from youtube of a radical pushing a missionary off a six foot high retaing wall in Tennessee. Her colleues carried her off like the player scoring the winning touchdown of the big game. She was arrested and I have heard nothing else.


  2. I think that polygamy is still widely practiced in sub-Saharan Africa. Men have a very high mortality rate. There aren’t enough to go around. So, women have to “double up”.It had to be even worse in the 1830s.
    What I find awful about polygamy is Muslim countries where the man shortage is not as acute. This leads to many unattached, unmotivated, lonely men. Why should a man reward such a society?


  3. How sad. I don’t have the heart to snicker at them or judge them. What can they possibly reap from giving these men the time of day, never mind a one-night stand?

    As a mother of daughters this frightens me. My oldest will be leaving for college in two years to earn a nurse practitioner degree. We live in a rural area and the nearest college that offers such a degree isn’t within commuting distance.

    I’m hoping she attends a conservative school where this type of behavior might at least be frowned upon and where he can hopefully meet a nice Christian husband before graduation.

    At her high school there are boys that the girls refer to as f*ck boys because they sleep around so much. Most girls know to avoid them, but the ones with low self-esteem often fall into their traps.


    • How sad. I don’t have the heart to snicker at them or judge them.

      It’s incredibly sad, and in terms of snickering, I think this is about the most unfunny joke I’ve ever heard. It really isn’t a joke actually.

      But judging? I sure as shoot will judge…not the girls really, but rather the choice. The choice to allow men to treat you like a piece of trash is incredibly stupid and foolish and I am an entirely comfortable making that judgment call.

      I strongly encourage all girls reading this (for I recently learned from my secret sources in the high school world that my blog is being read by a number of high school girls) to judge for yourselves if this behavior is wise and will get you what you want in life or foolish and likely to end in disaster.


      • Sunshine,
        It is good news that they are looking to you for information. There is a lot of bad info out there. At least you can offset Lacie Green, youtuber, who is a third wave feminist offering some bad info. Her main demographic is women 13-17.


      • In rereading your comment, it occurs to me that you are right, a deliberate choice is being made. The concept of a “boyfriend” is still widely circulated. That hey are making a choice also means that they are keeping their reasoning and motivation under wraps. That does not bode well.


    • LeeLeeBug,
      If it’s at all possible, keep your kids at home. At the very least, this will save on boarding expenses. They do seem to get in the most trouble in the freshman and sophomore years.
      When assortive mating was the norm, people found each other and there wasn’t as much pressure. Now that the market has tried to convert to the tournament social model, there are too few exceptional men for all the girls that want them. The girls are pulling out all the stops.


  4. And to think, this is these women at their PEAK attractiveness and marriage ability.

    When the 30’s and 40’s come knocking, just what are they going to do when their MMV\SMV has plummeted ? I’ve spent alot of time among 30/40’s single women, and its not pretty, its really not. Its extremely pitiful tbh and really quite sad just how desperate they have become.

    Its not a laughing matter in anyway.


    • I don’t have that much sympathy for the difficulties in dating for women at any age. They will always have an easier time finding a man than the other way around. For some reason, there are always more motivaed men in the markiet than women. However, it is quite a shock for them to realize that they are not the rockstars of dating they were in their twenties.


  5. Thanks for the link, Mary. As I stated in my post, the stats just don’t support Sales’ anecdotal piece. Don’t miss this excellent response from Jesse Singal at NY Mag highlighting her bias and incorrect use of data:

    There are women making poor choices, but Millennials have fewer sex partners than any generation since WWII.

    And you may be heartened to hear that Millennials are gearing up for marriage and children:

    All in all, I’d say that “The West is Doomed” camp is not having a good week.

    • Hello there, Susan, thank you for your comment.

      Back in February, I wrote a post entitled Not all millennials are like that: hopeful signs among high schoolers. It is a purely anecdotal post based on my observations of my daughters’ peers and of the young ladies in the high school where I work as a speech and language therapist. However, my observation is that younger Millennials seem to be doing better than the older ones.

      I read that Ms. Sales questioned the methodology of the study which found that Millennials have fewer sex partners. I would like to read more about that study before I get too excited about the findings, but if the results are valid, it’s certainly a positive trend.

      My concern with pieces like the one in VF is that they normalize the abnormal. Allowing oneself to be treated like a piece of trash is abnormal. I don’t necessarily want to shame the girls who participate in this because I think they’ve really been brainwashed into believing this behavior is normal when it isn’t. Instead, I want to let girls know that even leaving aside the issue of the immorality of premarital sex, participating in the kinds of behavior described in the VF article is dehumanizing, unsafe, and damaging for both them and society at large.

      • I don’t know that it really normalizes the abnormal–now granted, I’ve not been a young girl, nor will I ever of course, but I’d have to think that a lot of young ladies who grew up dreaming of their prince are going to run screaming from a situation with no romance, no commitment, no “satisfaction”, no ring, no kids, and a near certainty of multiple STDs.

        It strikes me as well that we could drop fornication levels a lot further if we simply pointed out that a young person does not “need” to get these diseases, and that happily married people are known to get a LOT more action than the Vanity Fair article describes. Just like Roger Staubach noted when he was asked if he was jealous of the attention Joe Namath was getting; nope, Staubach enjoyed sex a lot, but it was just all with one woman.

        One woman who knew what he liked, whom he knew how to please, and without those embarrassing visits to the doctor that follow hook-ups. What’s not to like?

        Maybe old married folk like myself ought to brag more. To be a bit like Staubach, I can say that I’m not jealous of Alex at all, and if Mrs. Bubba and I had a frigid spell that matched Marty’s “achievements”, we’d be seeking counseling. Just sayin’.


      • My concern with pieces like the one in VF is that they normalize the abnormal.

        Indeed. Sales also featured male “genetic superstars” – guys boasting of having sex with 100 different women in a year. Meanwhile, the women Sales spoke with were unhappy with the prevailing expectations – they were not the women having sex with our Investment Banking friends.

        Research shows that about 10-20% of the pop. is sexually unrestricted. The guys in the profile are certainly in that group, presumably having sex with women of similar views.

        Just 23% of Millennials have had a ONS, and 75% say they want to be in a long-term relationship. That’s the whole generation – I personally don’t think there’s a difference between older and younger Millennials. Just the way they’ve been portrayed in the media.


  6. I will comment as the parent of young adults that are not quite old enough to have been included in the demographic featured in the linked article.

    Our oldest daughter graduated high school in 2012. Top 20% of her VERY large class, friends who were all AP/honors kids, etc. Since graduation, three of the young women she graduated with have married (or are planning weddings to) the young men they were dating in high school. And again, these are the smart girls, the ones you would imagine would be striving for a career. They are in college, and they (with their fiances/husbands) are planning to work a few years before kids and all that, but they are not AT ALL interested in dating around, exploring their options, etc.

    Two have told me point blank that they can’t think of anything worse than being in the dating market. They actually feel great trepidation for my daughter and two of her other friends who haven’t dated. We see hopeful signs as we look around among young people under 25. There are some that are very much living the meme that is often parroted about young women today. But you’d be shocked at how many smart, reasonably attractive young women are not dating at all precisely because they are looking for marriage rather than just dating. I see and talk to them all the time of various backgrounds.

    I think young people are waking up to the scam, but because the commentary online is mostly offered by people too old to see it or without kids of a certain age, they continue to pontificate as if the young women who came of age over the last 5 years are the same as the ones who came of age 10-15 years ago. The winds however, have shifted considerably from where we sit.

  7. Made a mistake there. Three of her HS circle are already married, while several people she was acquainted with are planning weddings. It doesn’t sound like much but given the hard cultural push from the media for young women (especially the smart ones) to delay marriage, it’s not insignificant.

  9. Sunshine,

    You’re way out of my league. As you’ve probably noticed, I’m fragile and squeamish and my idealism is still very much in conflict with my red-pill awakening.

    So I give you props for even reading that VF article. It gave me headache and nausea.

    I agree with Free Northerners take on it that it’s all driven by women, and please Lord why show a video of old-raisins hooking up? Sheesh.
