2. The hookup culture is mutually beneficial. Men complaining about sluts should reflect upon their own promiscuity before determining that this is wrong. If you have so many complaints about it, you may want to stop hooking up with random ‘sluts’.
The rest of anon’s response was equally moronic, but this is part I want to focus on. The hookup culture is not mutually beneficial. We know that because of hypergamy. It benefits most women, but only the most alpha of men. It’s a fundamentally unequal situation, but anon is insisting an unequal situation is equal. When you consider the belief most people have that “women want relationships” (which is true but only with the apex of men just like with hookups until they get desperate after 28 or so), the concept being presented here (unintentionally by anon) is that this is an equal situation, but men are benefiting from it more than women. In other words, this ended up being another case where a feminist said that equality only benefits men, which is something we have heard from feminists before.
This got me thinking about other times someone says a situation is equal between men and women when it really isn’t leading to “equality only benefits men”. When it comes to promiscuity we know because of hypergamy for every man that engages in it, several women do. This is because a wider cross section of women have a greater opportunity to engage in promiscuity than all but a small fraction of men. However, like the anon above, tradcons don’t recognize this and believe that this situation is equal too. We have all seen tradcons say that “men are just as sinful as women” even though when it comes to sexual sin, this isn’t the case. Since tradcons believe in “male leadership”, their belief in that men and women are equally sinning sexually turns into another case where equality benefits men only. Tradcons believes that the only reason women commit sexual sins (or any type of sins) is because a man “led” them into it. (This adds a new dimension to tradcon opposition to “equality”.)
Here’s the pattern we are seeing here:
- Take a situation that is unequal where women benefit over men
- Say that situation in question is “equal” between men and women
- Attack equality (explicitly or implicitly through misdirection) so that it looks like the situation in question benefits men even though it really benefits women
This is how feminists and other misandrists make situations that benefit women look like they benefit men.
