For Everyone’s Sake: Win

I want to redirect a little bit from Dalrock’s post The perfect response to Patrairchy Chicken in which he highlighted a response from commenter Junkyard Dawg:

That actually happened to me a number of years ago. I was in a park where there is a wide walking path. People walking toward one another from opposite directions usually each moved to the right (like on the roads) to let one another pass. I saw a woman coming my way and moved all the way to the right, to the edge of the path. I soon saw that she had no intention of moving and she also was all the way over on the right (in her case, the left), and for sure, I was not going to step off onto the grass to let her pass, nor move to the center of the path – why should I?

I didn’t know how I was going to handle it, as she was almost face to face and I didn’t have much time to consider. But just seconds before, I stopped, put on a big spontaneous smile and said, “Good morning, how are you?” (We were now both standing still, face-to-face, about a foot apart.) This apparently was unexpected and she seemed to come to her senses, said, “OK,” and then moved over and kept going, and I resumed walking.

Dalrock added:

This is perfect, because it defeats the passive aggressive intent of the “empowerment” and forces the ugly feminist to choose one of three responses:

  1. State outright that she is playing childish power games.
  2. Go around.
  3. Engage in a friendly conversation.

If she chooses option 1, you can then respond with appropriate amusement.  But chances are she will do as the ugly feminist did in Junkyard Dawg’s experience and move out of the way.  Option three isn’t ideal, but keep in mind that being friendly is pure torture to an ugly feminist, so no matter how much you would prefer not to talk to one, she is far more bothered by being polite than you are.

It is also possible that she wasn’t actually an ugly feminist at all, but instead just not paying attention.  Note that this response is perfect for that scenario as well.

As Dalrock notes, this is an excellent response, but often the best response doesn’t come to us in the moment. I have a rule that I keep and tell other men; especially younger men and boys.

Never arm wrestle a woman. If you win: Then, big whoop, you beat a girl. If you lose: You got beat by a girl. But if you do: Win.

Here’s what I suggest men should keep in mind even if the response is less than perfect: Win. It is best not to fight with women if for no other reason than we men who are not raging psychopaths do not like the feel of it, but if she is bound and determined to have a confrontation with you: Win.

You can get lost in caveats and exceptions (and if you want to do so in the comments, go nuts) but in our liberal and egalitarian democracy there are few stations in life to be respected. This is a failure of our culture. Our correction of the economy of respect must start at the fundamentals.

  1. Hopefully, though, your community is not a a liberal, egalitarian democracy. But infidel males and females should be handled as competitors, indiscriminately.

  2. eh.. there are enclaves like super trad Catholics or amish where the law may say everyone is equal, but the informal consensus operates on patriarchy

  3. Yet another reason to put one’s identity as a Christian in front of his identity as an American.

  4. In the proverbial earlier era a sort of stand up, Indian wrestling game was making the rounds. I was living in a military bubble and did not know about it but was challenged by my one of my sisters-in-law to this game while on home leave.

    In the game you take a shaking hands pose with your opponent, and first one to pull the other off their feet wins. Presumably some people shortly after Adam and Eve were expelled from the garden were the first ones to play, but at any rate it was popular with college students at this time.

    My sister-in-law was the athletic type and local champ. Though not large nor particularly stronger than other chicks, she was quick to drop her CG and pull downwards. She beat all the girls and had beaten some men that way. I think you were supposed to kind of let that happen and praise her for it but I didn’t figure that out until afterwards.

    She did surprise me with the opening move, and I had to lean into it and stop the action with my forward leg. Then I pulled back and sailed her airborne across half their living room. This made an impression on her that resounds to this day, and she still thinks I’m some kind of hyper strong dangerous person though in reality I was just some man that had not been briefed about the unwritten rules.

  5. Aways win and, when possible, make it look easy, dont hurt them, and/or show them you don’t play by their “rules unwritten.”

  6. I wrote this over at Dalrock’s, and I’ll repeat it here.

    I’ve been to uncivilized places where men openly beat their women. The other people (including other women) on the street simply shrug, as if to say “serves her right”, and walk on.

    Western men are the gentlest men in history, with respect to women and children, because of Christianity’s influence. But as Westerners reject Christianity, Western men will become less civilized, and feminists will have the savage culture for which they’ve been shrieking for decades.

    She was not paying attention. Few women do. Utter lack of surroundings and spacial awareness. Push a grocery cart thru a store. You can move to within a micron of a woman who is oriented sideways to you while reading a list of the things the item she holds is free of, and she will choose the comfy chair of her furrowed brow studying to the notice of an approaching cart that cannot pass.

    The chivalric bubble distorts a woman’s vision.

    That is in fact what women want.

    Their claim to want a civilized society is just a fitness test that you have to pass.

    The solution is to create a society that, for women, resembles the savage society that they hunger for, in the same way a suburban garden resembles our ancestral savanna.
