Tales from the Frontiers: Female Pedestalisation and Anglo Colonial Culture

In his excellent and definitive article from 2018, a former US Corrections Officer noted that most of the English-speaking world – in fact, everywhere but the UK – is defined by a colonial history marred by racism, slavery and genocide (though all this was all engineered by and from Britain, of course). In the Corrections Officer’s enlightened view, feminist ‘protest culture’ has appropriated the residual resentment associated with these crimes to empower itself, even though white women (and even white feminists) were often complicit in them.

As I re-read his article, his profound observations opened my mind to a further possibility: did the Anglosphere’s colonial culture of ‘womanless’ men directly influence the ‘pedestalisation’ of women and institutional misandry that currently defines the Anglo-American ‘colonial’ countries (the USA, Canada, NZ, Australia)?

Female pedestalisation arises naturally in a colonial situation, since frontiersmen are bereft of sexual opportunity. Women are remote, almost mythical beings and nearly all males are hardcore incels by simple virtue of their situation, whatever their social status or appearance. This sexual and emotional deprivation leads naturally to an intense and unnatural idealisation of women. For example, it is said that men in the American West would often burst into tears at the sight of any woman, regardless of her age or appearance. Moreover, gunfights over women were common and prostitutes could earn small fortunes sexually servicing cowhands, frontier soldiers, gold prospectors and other sexually disenfranchised males in the untamed West.

If we look at modern North America, both the US and Canada are the global epicentres of misandrist and sex-negative feminism. In the US prostitution is strictly prohibited, divorce outcomes for men are crippling, women are exempt from Draft registration and can mutilate (or even murder) males with complete legal impunity. Meanwhile ‘oppressed’ misandrist feminists like Katherine McKinnon dominate American law, politics and what remains of the mainstream media with an iron fist. In Canada, the situation is very similar: female ‘educators’ are showing pre-pubertal children their genitals while Canadian males are viewed as third class citizens, stooges and criminals by the police and other authorities.

When we take their distinctive colonial histories into account, it should come as no surprise that the US and Canada are now the most obviously misandrist of all Anglosphere countries. North American culture was strongly defined by sexually disenfranchised males who never saw a woman for months on end, plus entitled females who enjoyed maximal ‘scarcity status’ as 'controllers' and 'dispensers' of sex. When added to religious puritanism, malleable common law and underhand legalism, this sexual deprivation/scarcity situation was fertile soil for misandrist, sex-negative feminism to flourish. With various modulations, the other Anglo-Saxon colonial nations (Australia and NZ) exhibit the same institutional misandry so intimately associated with ‘colonial puritanism’.

One last thing: the colonial factor also explains why North American men (both tradcons and liberals) remain so strongly complicit in their own oppression. Since the colonial cult of female exaltation retains such a potent residual presence in North America, most North American males remain strongly attached to the delusion that women are somehow ‘guiltless’, ‘victimised’ and ‘oppressed’. For example, sexless White/Blue Knights and other male buffoons are fiercely protective of tattooed, misandrist feminists and intensely hostile to the Red/Crimson/Black Pills. Although their confusion can be partly attributed to rampant Sexual False Consciousness, a deep 'colonial' need to ‘pedestalise’ women is also in play.

The modern Anglo-American White/Blue Knight is essentially Judge Roy Bean, in all but name: a deluded fantasist with a Lillee Langtree poster nailed to the wall of his dust-bowl shack.
