Anglo-American Globalization Spreading Anglobitch Values

Interesting article broadly arguing that Anglo-American sexual repression and hypocrisy is poisoning other, more liberated cultures through the channels of media globalization:

A few years ago I was driving late at night through the Pigalle area of Paris, which has been known as the city's "naughty" quartier for more than a century. I was, of course, merely on my way home.

Out of the darkness, there loomed a tall, male figure: young, pasty-faced, badly-dressed, obviously drunk, obviously British.

"It's all a fucking con-trick," he screamed as I swerved to avoid him. "It's all a fucking con."

A young British male, aggressive, uptight, determined to be virile but not sure how or where to start, had just established contact with the French sex industry, which had offered much but delivered little, at a high price.

Similar scenes are doubtless acted out, with different national protagonists, in every large city in the world. Pigalle is, in any case, not especially naughty these days. But there was something elemental about my late-night vision of young, British manhood on the streets of Paris, the city of lovers. Britons have long been possessed by a suspicion that foreigners especially "the bloody French" are more sexually liberated and active than we are. To put it crudely, that foreigners especially "the bloody French" are getting it more and doing it better.

Similarly, there is a widespread foreign view that the British are erotically inept. Our men are clumsy and hurried and given to strange inclinations. Our women are prudish and cold. Our teenagers are at it like rabbits but in a joyless and brutal fashion, largely under the influence of drink and drugs.

How true are such stereotypes? Are they changing in the globalised world of contraception, liberated morals, the internet, and frenetic travel? Have national sexual characteristics been eroded in a world in which relationships are often international and where sexual imagery infests everyday life?

To try to answer some of these questions, I made an appointment with France's leading "sexologist", Dr Jacques Waynberg, medical doctor, lecturer, writer and sexual philosopher. Dr Waynberg has studied human sexuality from the Brazilian rain forests to Bucharest. He organises academic studies in the psychology of eroticism, and the treatment of sexual dysfunctions, at the Universities of Paris VI and VII. He is the founder of the Paris Institut de Sexologie. What he had to say was startling. He believes that globalisation and modern industrial society have eroded national sexual characteristics. Far from everyone becoming more sexually confident, the developed world has become more erotically clumsy, even autistic, he says. In other words, other nations, even the French, are becoming, sexually speaking, more like the British.

"The British problem with sexuality is not a question of coldness or clumsiness. The problem is that you Britons take sex too seriously, too ponderously, as something deeply personal and secret, to be hidden and discussed in whispers or, conversely, something smutty to be gossiped about," Dr Waynberg said. "Eroticism in Britain has always been a difficult subject, as, of course, in many ways it is.

"The French traditionally have treated sex and eroticism more lightly, as a game, something to be enjoyed. That, I am afraid, is changing. I see dozens of French people of all ages in this office and my impression is that many French people are no longer having much fun out there. The pressures of modern life, the isolation of the modern couple without a wider family structure, the high expectations of performance, have destroyed the lightness, the playfulness which were characteristic of the French Lover.

"Sexuality in France is, I fear, becoming anglicised."

Dr Waynberg blames a paradox of the modern world: the obsession with glorified, or exaggerated, or over-simplified sexuality simultaneously arouses and destroys the true erotic impulse, he argues. As Shakespeare said of drink: "It provokes the desire but takes away the performance".

Jacques-Alain Miller, France's most celebrated Freudian psychoanalyst, makes a similar argument. He points to the systematic media hypocrisy now spreading from Britain and the US to France which glorifies and cheapens sexuality while tut-tutting or sniggering at any manifestation of sexuality in politicians and celebrities.

The Max Mosley affair was much reported in France partly through the device of mocking the prurience of the British press while providing the salient details. M. Miller said that this was symptomatic of changing attitudes in France: "Globalisation is universalising some of the worst aspects of Anglo-American puritanism: a hypocritical fulmination [by the media] against the smut which it encourages and then uncovers," M. Miller said "It is as if orgasm is no longer acceptable in the public domain."

International sex surveys suggest that Dr Waynberg and M. Miller are wrong (but also right). Such studies suggest that there are still great disparities between sexual activity and enjoyment in different parts of the word. A survey for Durex last year of 26,000 people in 26 countries claimed that the Greeks were the world's randiest people. Eighty-seven per cent of Greek adults said that they had sex at least once a week, compared with 34 per cent of the Japanese. The "Anglo-Saxons" came out badly. Only 55 per cent of Britons said they had sex weekly and 53 per cent of Americans.

The Shield of Marc Lepine (After Auden's 'The Shield of Achilles')

She looked over his shoulder
For planes and tanks at war,
Pronouncements by dictators
And arbitrary law,
But there on the shining metal
His hands had put instead
A modern family courtroom
As spiritless as lead.

A court bereft of justice, cold and bare,
A place reviled of honour and of truth
Where welfare workers spoke of ‘love’ and ‘care’,
With all the stark naivity of youth
(And no regard for honesty, or proof);
The schizoid Judge in judgement took her time,
Considering no evidence, imagining a crime.

Then out of air a judgement shadow-deep
Declared him guilty, and his children hers;
And all his hard-earned assets hers to reap
Or he would sup in jail, or somewhere worse;
His unbelieving lips could not yet curse
Unless ‘contempt’ be added to his ‘crimes’ –
A tired addendum to these troubled times.

She looked over his shoulder
For vast atrocities;
For Dachau, and for Belsen -
For moral mysteries;
But on the glinting metal
Where these things should have been
She saw by his flickering forge-light
Quite another scene.

A ageing cougar, bondless and alone
Surveyed the wreckage of her fifty years,
Bewept her youth and beauty, long since gone
With eyes beyond the misery of tears,
And felt the chilly clasp of primal fears;
Why would a solvent partner take her on
With all this baggage, and her face undone?

The string of thugs that ploughed her furrow fair
Now lay in jail or under marble cold,
Or in some cell of underclass despair
Consumed by drugs, and prematurely old,
The willing sheep their dealers bought and sold;
Her sons were feral savages, so wild
She cursed the very concept of each child.

She looked over his shoulder
For killers and their crimes,
For Nazis and for Stalinists
In strife-tormented times,
But wide amaze remade her eyes
For on the shining shield
His hands had set stark winter skies,
Above a muddy field.

A savage chav with sharply-shaven head
Surveyed the scene, with predatory eyes;
He longed to find a child, and coax it dead -
Feast deep upon its shrill and frantic cries,
His long, dark drink and sanguinary prize.
His father was a thug he’d never known,
Who’d tried his mother’s bed, and left alone.

The thin-lipped armorer,
Hephaestos, hobbled away,
Thetis of the shining breasts
Cried out in dismay
At what the god had wrought
To grace the cold, hate-strong
Woman-killing hands of Marc Lepine,
Who would not live long.

Rise of the Sinobitch: A Lesson in Socio-Sexual Dynamics

Paradoxically, the rise of the Sino Bitch in China reveals much about the Anglobitch, and gender-relations across the Anglosphere. What makes the Anglobitch Thesis such a potent concept is its flexibility – the way it can adapt and explain any situation in gender-relations.

What is the Sinobitch phenomenon? In China, women are an increasing problem, displaying many traits usually displayed by Anglo-American women – insolence, arrogance, entitlement and sexual manipulation. This situation has arisen simply because, due to China’s ‘One Child’ policy, sex is in short supply in China: there are thirty million sexless males without hope of sex or a partner. This gives Chinese women enormous power, since they possess what men want – sex: the prime commodity in gender-relations.

In the Anglosphere, women strive to simulate the same situation by banning prostitution, stigmatizing foreign brides and insisting on Jane Austenesque ‘romance’ – repression’s first redoubt. By restricting male access to sex, they have engineered a western facsimile of the Chinese situation. However, even at its best, this is a pale imitation of the conditions unfolding in China. A conservative estimate by the US State Department numbers Chinese prostitutes at 10 million:

A study of the sex industry in rural China found “ a lot of young girls want to get rich so badly and want to make use of their beauty before it slips away. They consider working hard a waste of time and feel their looks are a waste if they don’t take advantage of them immediately.” (Source: BBC)

Of course, many more Chinese women live as concubines or exchange sex for gifts. In short, the rise of the sexually manipulative Sinobitch is, ironically, a masterclass in Anglobitch studies. Sexual scarcity grants women power over men, which is why they go such lengths to maintain it. And all the cloudy talk by American 'pick-up artists’ (self-deluding bullshitters, for the most part) won’t change that.

However, the rising sense of entitlement among Chinese women extends beyond mere prostitution, the LCD of gender-relations. The following discussion of Sinobitch narcissism comes from a fascinating site called, concerned with Anglo-American expats in China. While it contains interesting case studies, the article has several logical flaws. I will explain these errors in due course.

Pathological Narcissism and Grandiose Self Defenses

The single-child policy combined with pervasive traditional Confucian values and beliefs in regard to the superiority of males has led to some rather pathological cultural-specific dynamics in regard to Chinese female psychosocial and personality development.

1.The female child is a grave disappointment at birth, especially to her father. Whether spoken or not, this leads to either an estranged relationship (most common scenario) or one that is, at best, highly ambivalent.
2.As an only child, the daughter is nevertheless pampered and spoiled, especially by her mother and grandparents. If the father is conscious of his disappointment, resentment and subsequent guilt, he too may also overindulge his daughter in an attempt at psychological undoing.
3.This combination of factors leads to a child who feels both constitutionally damaged (i.e., inadequate, inferior at birth) and, at the same time, entitled to special treatment and compensation from the world. One of two types of pathological narcissism will emerge depending on the girl's cognitive and physical attributes:
a.If the girl is very gifted academically and considered physically attractive, she will become a phallic or exhibitionistic narcissistic.
b.If the girl is only an average student (or worse) and considered to be no better than average-looking, she will become a closet narcissist.

Case Illustration: "Andy," a foreign teacher in China married to a closet narcissist.

This post was written by a foreign male teacher in China and vividly describes what his life is like being married to a closet narcissist. It is a fairly common scenario in China, especially for Western men married to Chinese women, which is why it is included here.

Even my own wife has admitted (once) that she takes advantage of my temperate disposition and fair-mindedness to try to put it over on me.

My own wife used to be physically violent with me quite a bit. Hitting and scratching, punching, even biting etc., (basically, the untamed 3 year old). One time she smacked me across the head with a heavy book on the bus, and brought blood to my forehead.

She doesn't do it anymore, though. The last time she hit me, about two years ago, I jabbed her back with a short, sharp jab/punch to the shoulder - the only time I have ever hit a woman. It wasn't enough to cause any damage, but hard enough to let her know that physical violence is unacceptable, at least where I come from. And I told her so directly. It was basically like disciplining a child with a smack. We have talked about this since, and she admits that when she was little her father was "very weak" and she was treated like a princess. i.e. she never had appropriate boundaries set. Many Chinese kids get so much attention when they are little (esp. girls) that they grow up with a completely different mindset to western kids. Many expect the world to revolve around them, esp. now with the one child policy.

Case Illustration: Candy, the exhibitionistic narcissist.

This case vignette was written by a 30-year old American foreign teacher in China who had a very painful experience with an exhibitionistic narcissist he had met through an Internet dating service. Unfortunately, many Western men are exploited and manipulated for visas to their respective foreign countries every day in China.

I first met 23-year old Candy through an online dating service. I was frankly surprised at how quickly she answered my private message to her. We exchanged Yahoo Messenger IDs and then spent about two hours chatting online. She told me that all she was interested in was meeting a good man who could love her: that’s all. She wasn’t interested in a man’s wealth or his possessions, she wrote. She indicated that she had broken up with her first and only boyfriend about six months ago, another American who was 42 years older than her, and that she was ready to start a new relationship. Aside from all that, she was also probably the prettiest girl I had ever seen in China, so all of this was really hard for me to believe. But I wanted to believe, so I agreed to pay for a ticket for her to fly her up to meet me.

When I met her at the airport, I couldn’t believe my eyes: She was even prettier in person than she was in her photos. Inside the taxi, on the way to back to my apartment, I got the distinct impression that something was wrong, that she was distracted somehow, but I tried not to attend to that—I hoped that maybe I was just imagining it because I was so nervous and excited.

When we finally got to my apartment, she simply dropped the bags she had been carrying right next to the door and broke some bottle containing a liquid that then proceeded to leak all over the floor. She didn’t seem the least bit concerned by it and I was the one who would eventually clean it up the next morning.

After she was settled in, and we were both seated at the dining room table, I asked her to tell me what was really going on. I commented on how I realized a girl like her could get any man she wanted, so why would she be interested in a 30-year old guy like me who hadn’t accumulated much wealth and only had a four-year college education? After staring at and sizing me up for what felt like an eternity, while weighing all her options, she then proceeded to tell me the truth. As it turned out, she had lied about everything. She had not broken up with her 65-year old boyfriend at all. She was with me because they had a big fight after he had refused to marry her again. She admitted that her only interest in me was to get a visa to America. She wanted me to marry her and bring her to the states as soon as possible (she seemed to have no real idea about the length of time it took to get a marriage visa). She even offered me $20,000 USD if I would agree.

It’s hard to describe, but I don’t think I had ever been more heartbroken and disappointed than I was at the particular moment in time. I had never been married before so I was looking for a real wife, not a business deal, and I told her so. I then asked her to book a return flight back to her 65-year old boyfriend the next day. That was my third and last try with a Chinese girl. Although I remained in China for another two years before returning back to the states, I never dated another one again. I wouldn’t dare.

I recently received a message from Candy. Leonard finally agreed to marry her and her big dream came true: She has been living in California for the past five months. She also asked if I would come visit her because she wanted to have sex with a much younger man. When I told her that I wasn’t interested, she replied that she had already found a much younger and richer man to marry her after she gets her Green Card and divorces Leonard.

I actually felt sorry for the poor bastard. He probably has no idea

Rookh Kshatriya's Analysis

The article's first error is in confusing female entitlement with a personality disorder:

If the girl is very gifted academically and considered physically attractive, she will become a phallic or exhibitionistic narcissistic.

In truth, arrogance and entitlement are very much natural - indeed, reflexive - female responses to 'owning' sex in a social situation where this premium commodity is in short supply. Where there is a shortage of eligible women, their commodity-status automatically rises - like any other commodity. During the First World War, even balding old crones could make a decent living sexually servicing the front-line troops, since no other women were available. Anglo-American women have of course 'simulated' these conditions by creating a vast edifice of 'romance' around gender relations, so that sex is dwarfed by the vast corpus of chivalric, latent-homosexual gestures that now surround the sexual act. On course, the true purpose of this insistence on Disneyfied 'romance' is to ration sex and thus raise its scarcity value, thus maintaining the Anglobitch Princess in her privileged status.

As for China itself, we are often told that all young Chinese males are 'little emperors' with an enormous sense of entitlement compared to western children. 'Andy's' testimony refutes this, however:

Many Chinese kids get so much attention when they are little (esp. girls) that they grow up with a completely different mindset to western kids.

Especially girls... Now, this chimes well with what we understand of Anglo-American women. Due to the puritanical nature of Anglo-American culture, Anglo girls grow up with a staggering sense of entitlement as 'owners' of sex in a repressive, explicitly 'homosocial' society. In the case of Chinese girls, this 'scarcity' situation will be augmented by sociobiological factors, in that a girl child might now be many low-status parents' sole hope of future reproductive success. So, pampered and cocooned in a world of entitlement, the young Chinese girl rapidly matures into a full-grown Sinobitch, viewing men (especially foreign men) entirely as meal-tickets and stooges. And of course, the influence of 'enlightened' Anglo-American culture on China in recent years can hardly have helped to quell this dangerous phenomenon.

In sum, the rise of the Sinobitch not only teaches us much about the Anglobitch; it reveals the socio-sexual dynamics underlying the Anglobitch phenomenon.

Breaking News: Anglobitch Video Banned as 'Hate Speech'


Youtube have seen fit to remove my major 'Anglobitch' video that explains the theory to novices in simple, visual terms. The excuse they gave was that I am guilty of 'hate speech'. All nonsense, of course: the only 'hate speech' in these debates emanates from feminists like Catherine MacKinnon, Germaine Greer or Harriet Harman. The video, as those who have seen it can readily attest, is entirely bereft of anything but facts.

My fear is that the Anglobitch message has been reaching out so effectively across the Anglosphere that the Anglo-American elites have been stung into suppressing us. Declining marriage rates across the Anglosphere, increased male resistance to institutionalized misandry and a general male 'opt-out' from corrupt societies that view them as expendable ATM machines must have forced their hands.

In response, all I can say is 'keep the faith' - that is, keep spreading the Anglobitch message online, avoid Marriage and keep shunning Anglo-American women. Above all, take heart: their discomfiture is clear proof our message is working.

On a somewhat more positive note, this is your last day to vote for the Top Anglobitch presently operating in the Anglosphere. Right now, it's neck and neck between the Horrendous H Clinton and Hideous H Harman, undoubtedly the two top turnips subverting patriarchal civilization in the West. Don't delay, vote today! An extensive Anglobitch profile on the winner is promised, within the week.

Get voting!

Feminism: Anglobitch Creation or Autonomous Product?

Who is to blame for feminism and its cataclysmic effects? This is one of the great conundrums within the field of Men's Studies. As well as being of intrinsic interest, it is also of great practical importance: for if we cannot identify where the problem lies, how can we possibly correct it? Some say it is men, others women. However, a third possibility exists: society itself. This is because laws and language are systems of information that transcend any individual consciousness.

The Anglobitch Thesis is in many ways far ahead of other MRA concepts, since it stresses the structural aspects of feminism: that is, the cultural aspects. How can we change things? If society is a vast information programme, then it is possible to change it by introducing new data, as one changes software output by inserting different variables. MRA sites, blogs and so forth are already having an impressive effect in this regard.

In our view, Anglo American feminism has become institutionalized via complex, non-linear feedback loops that accentuate behavioural trends implicit in human behavior by virtue of our evolutionary heritage. These have become embedded as socio-cultural memes in law, language and politics as immutable ‘norms’. A good example would be the offhand deference shown to women by the Anglo-American media. This originated in the biological need to safeguard young women in order to expand early hunter-gatherer societies, the first societies in the crudest sense. Then, this tendency was accentuated by non-linear feedback loops to become embedded in communal life.

Beyond this, as true institutions emerged, these norms became embedded in the social nexus at a primal level. These persist as ‘fossil values’ in modern culture, unaccountable 'transparencies' that legitimate offhand devaluation of the male. Anglo American culture above all others promotes female advantage in this manner, because its archaic puritanical assumptions persist as fossils in contemporary, post feminist culture, promoting women on pedestals and vilifying all males as sexualized creatures.

Robert Wright of Harvard: expert Evolutionary Psychologist

Lower class Anglo-American populist culture gives a perfect example of this pernicious process in operation. As Robert Wright of Harvard has shown, lower class families value girls more because a lower class girl can still find a sexual partner despite her poverty - and thus still manage to reproduce. For a lower class male, this is much less likely. This is why lower class women have another child as soon as possible after a boy is born: a boy born in poverty is a biological liability, a waste of time and resources.

Now, it is obvious that contemporary lower class populist culture is deeply misandrist, assuming all males to be rapists, paedophiles and so on. A cursory glance at any lower-class media product will prove this. Now, the lower class media’s owners/managers do not sit arounge their offices saying, “Hey – let’s hate men today!” Rather, the customs and working methods they have developed by trial and error achieve exactly the same result as a carefully-engineered misandrist social programme, albeit unconsciously. In short, the misandrist agenda is amplified by nonlinear feedbacks, becoming embedded in organizational procedures to produce convergent results. At no point, however, did anyone ever consciously plan any of this: it arose entirely by spontaneous, self-organising social processes. In our view, exactly the same process occurs in law, politics and the 'highbrow' media - albeit in a more complex, multi-tiered and symbiotic manner. Indeed, the German scholar Niklas Luhmann claims that the law and other complex institutions are actually self-organising entities in their own right, which spontaneously adapt to (and embody) socio-cultural shifts. It is inviting to think that, in practice, Anglo-American law also embodies unconscious misandry for the same reason.

Niklas Luhmann: expert in complexity-driven social systems

Indeed, if we consider the foregoing discussion carefully, the Anglo-American MRA fixation on ‘conservatism’ to reverse the ills of feminism is entirely mistaken, in that Anglo-Saxon 'conservatism' merely reprises the core values of Anglo culture, which inherently exalt women while denigrating men. Simply calling on that culture for salvation from Anglo feminism is hopeless, since puritanical Anglo-Saxon culture is inherently loaded with vicious misandry in the first place!

Obviously, reprogramming the culture will be no simple task – however, the more difficult path is invariably the most rewarding. Indeed, some of the articles and essays on this blog and our associated Anglobitch site serve as a good foundation for this unqiue conceptual enterprise. A new language of equitable gender relations must be formulated by MRAs from all over the Anglophone nations if the Anglosphere is to survive the depredations of Anglobitch feminism. American pragmatism, British objectivity, Canadian conscience, Anzac verve and Indian spiritual depth must all be mobilized against the fossilized, catastrophically misandrist memes embedded within Anglo culture.

In conclusion, no one party is ‘to blame’ for Anglo feminism. No one is ‘to blame’ for the inherent misandry of Anglo-American institutions. There is no conscious misandrist agenda, only non-linear recursive feedbacks that produce exactly the same effect – giving observers the impression that such a conscious agenda exists, when in fact it does not. The main challenge for Anglo-American MRAs lies in deconstructing the hegemonic memes of the existing culture to challenge its ubiquitous rhetoric of anti-male oppression.

Prostitution, Post-Marriage Relations and Obama’s Unlikely Election

Obama: Elected on the back of soft polygamy, Welfare and the Marriage Strike?

Prostitution is a topic that sharply divides MRAs. On the one hand, some consider prostitution a largely benign institution that cheapens the power of sex, thus knocking Anglobitches off their pedestals of entitlement. Other MRAs point out that many feminists view prostitution as a ‘reappropriation’ of female sexual independence – making it something to be obviously opposed by MRAs. (However, yet other feminists strongly oppose prostitution, concocting bogus figures about levels of trafficking and coercion, further muddying the waters).

In short, prostitution is a baffling topic, on which there is no clear consensus among either MRAs or feminists. What is our own view?

The Anglobitch Thesis broadly considers prostitution in the Anglosphere to be quite distinct from that which occurs in other cultures. This relates to the Disneyfied, puritanical repression that undercuts sexual relations in the Anglosphere. Elsewhere, sex is viewed as a physical function, like eating, not some quasi-mystical sacrament bestowed by women on men. Hence, in the Anglosphere it is broadly in women’s interests to keep this high ‘exchange value’ attached to sex, for any decline in its value means a loss of that ‘princess’ status uniformly granted to women in the Anglosphere. That is why, broadly speaking, prostitution is opposed by Anglo-Saxon feminists like Harriett Harman, and all blame for it laid at the door of (largely imaginary) ‘traffickers’, pimps and most of all, men.

Prostitution attracts the utmost controversy among Anglo-American MRAs

However, many women also oppose prostitution for entirely personal reasons. If men can obtain a cheap, steady supply of sex, more women will end up without a mate, a mortifying fate for most females. After all, most men marry to assuage sexual needs and an endless supply of cheap young female bodies is infinitely preferable to spending half one’s life with an ageing, turkey-necked scold. Of course, the ‘Brazilification’ (socio-economic inequality) that has recently emerged in the Anglosphere also means that fewer men can can now attract a wife, anyway. In short, many women are also on Marriage Strike, in that too few Anglo-American men can now afford to keep one. Many evolutionary psychologists argue that prostitution is very prevalent in Third World countries because there, it is more cost-effective for women to prostitute themselves than marry an impoverished husband. In western countries only 1% of women are prostitutes; in African countries the proportion of prostitution-women is as high as 25%. Indeed, the ‘soft polygamy’ that is arising in the Anglosphere probably represents an expansion of prostitution in response to ‘Brazilification’ – that is, we are rapidly returning to a pre-modern, pre-patriarchal socio-sexual compact closer to the Stone Age than advanced industrial society.

So now we begin to explain the differences of opinion among gender activists of both sexes on this crucial topic. Young, attractive, lower-class women will of course favour prostitution, since they can use it to exploit male sexual needs and earn far more than they ever could in conventional employment. However, old or unattractive women will automatically oppose prostitution, for the same reason they oppose male homosexuality – it will likely leave them childless and mateless in old age, as men opt for quality sex over marital commitment. Indeed, old elite women (a la Harman) are invariably most opposed to prostitution for this very reason.

The same distinction can probably be found among MRAs. The Anglo-American MRA movement is broadly divided into conservatives and progressives. Conservatives, represented by sites like American Women Suck, tend to hold Christian beliefs and strongly oppose prostitution. Progressives, as represented by MGTOW, tend to be agnostic materialists and broadly accepting of prostitution and homosexuality. Both positions hav their problems, however.

‘Anglo-American’ conservatism is somewhat of an oxymoron, in that America is a nation forged in revolt. Moreover, Protestantism is a faith of revolt, and Christianity (sans the Judeo) is a revolutionary hotpotch of idealist eschatology, pacifism, paganism and Marxism (turn the other cheek, accept the pagan Trinity, give away all your possessions). Besides, ‘traditional’ Anglo-Saxon puritanical culture inherently promotes matriarchal values, so adhering to it is hardly likely to challenge feminism. By contrast, the progressive strand of men’s activism acknowledges some of the problems inherent in Anglo culture, even if its solutions may still be invalid.

In sum, the issue of prostitution is complex, and opinions on it are formed by personal circumstances, politics and culture. That the West is changing, moving away from Marriage towards ‘soft polygamy’ (another form of prostitution, after all) is impossible to doubt. This is shaping new cultural trends – increased rates of singleness, the Marriage Strike, more use of hired sexual services and a rapid expansion of alternative sexual lifestyles. What has not been noted before is that these trends are starting to influence mainstream political events in the Anglosphere, as can be seen in the election of President Obama.

The great unstated truth about Obama is that young, single women made him President. There is something about being a young, single woman that makes someone strongly enamored of generous Welfare programmes. The fact that most young, single women earn little, tend to study non-renumerative subjects at college and have a pronounced sense of entitlement in Anglo-Saxon societies all disposed them to vote for Obama in droves. Of course, the crucial factor in their situation is singleness- specifically, singleness occasioned by the Marriage Strike. Simply put, in the ‘Post-Marriage’ era, an elaborate Welfare State is essential for such women. Since men still earn more, yet no longer trust them enough to marry them, young single women must necessarily look to the State for survival provision. Of course, the Welfare State inherently favours women, anyway – just look at Britain, where men pay most taxes but get little Welfare help - which further explains these women’s electoral choice.

Theirs was a vote for misandrist matriarchy, and long will American men rue their present political administration.
