Women, the most responsible teenager in the house

Think about how a teenager refers to the family sedan, which the parents paid for, as our car. But the i-pod which he purchased with money he earned part-time at McDonald's is his i-pod. Is not the teenager’s/child’s default that his parent’s possessions are “ours” while those possessions he purchased with money he earned himself are “his,” and his alone? This directly mimics even my own parent’s marriage, where my father worked his entire lifetime to pay the bills for the family and put a roof over our heads, but when the kids were off to school and my mom took up working, the money she earned doing so was “her money.” It did not go into the family pot as my father’s income did, but became her own “special money” in almost the same way that a child’s allowance or earnings are “his money.”

(Right Now I Feel Like)...

Perhaps you have heard the old saying, “It’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind…” This is something we usually write off as a cute quirk of female behaviour (even though it often causes untold damage to others), but think for a moment how this resembles the behaviour of children & teenagers. Ask a child what they want to be when they grow up and they will tell you “a fireman,” then ask them a week later and they will say “an astronaut.” Young people will do this right through high-school and on into university where they almost assuredly will change their major at least once, not to mention that after getting their degree, the odds are there will be more changes in their plans once again.

If I were a parent who had a teenager that told me they wanted to be a doctor in the future, I would do well to insert the phrase “Right now I feel like (I want to be a doctor),” in front of every choice the teenager has claimed they made. Certainly, I wouldn’t 100% take them at their word and start depleting my resources in an attempt to help them become a doctor, because in a month or two, the teen will tell me they no longer want to be a doctor but have decided on the career path of Famous Rock Star instead.

One of the sad facts of entering adulthood is that you are forced to make choices which you must stick to in order to be successful in your ventures. The person who decides early to stick to a career as an auto-mechanic will likely be much more successful in life than his peer who spends age 18 to 24 pursuing a career as psychologist, then quits and spends another 6 years attempting a career as an electrician, only to quit again to gain qualification as an accountant. Part of “adulthood” is about making choices that you stick to for the long term, so that those ventures have enough time to bear fruit. Those who change their minds too often rarely harvest the fruits of their labour. In other words, making a choice to go in one direction often closes the door to other choices. We allow children the latitude to change their minds as they grow-up, but after a time we start to insist they make a choice and stick to it.

Women as well change their minds like teenagers do. Sure, she might decide that (right now she feels like) she wants to be a doctor, but as evidence has shown in the medical profession, most women who train to be doctors spend less than a decade working full-time in said profession before quitting and deciding that (right now she feels like) she wants to be a mother. Afterwards, most of these women decide that (right now she feels like) she only wants to work as a part-time doctor. Of course, as time goes on, she has less and less experience than the male doctor who never “took a break” to explore other choices life had to offer and he quickly outpaces her in that field, even without the Patriarchy conspiring behind the scenes to hold her back. . When a woman tells you she will love you forever, insert the phrase (Right now I feel like) before it, so you get the proper translation into Womanese: “(Right now I feel like) I will love you forever. All evidence shows that this should include vows made at the altar as well, since the vast majority of divorces are initiated by women rather than men.

Q: “Do you take this man as your lawful wedded husband, to have and to hold until death do you part?” A: “(Right now I feel like) I do!”

Sure women stick to their choices better than children do, but they don’t do it as well as men do either. In other words, women’s behaviour exists somewhere in between the child and the man… kinda like a teenager.

I just want to say this is one of my favorite old topics as it really gets women's and betas panties in a twist. They get so wrapped around the axle that the point is lost on them and it's just delicious indignation :)

Now to the voracity of the claim..

I've dated women up and down the age spectrum and I can say with certainty women in general do not mature much, if at all. From 18-44 they're all about the same, all that really changes is the amount of baggage and neurosis.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

Oh also the older women, with more baggage and even crazier, also up their demands. They make greater demands from you with the inverse of their physical attraction.

[–]∞ Mod | RP Vanguardbsutansalt1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

They're certainly more needy, that's for sure.

[–]PowerVitamin0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Agreed, and this post is also my favourite.

This is the post that changed it all for me. Once I stopped expecting women to act like adults and understood why it's necessary to treat them like children I was able to leave anger phase. Women are predictable. Children are selfish. Women are selfish. Whatever a selfish child will do is almost certainly what a woman will do in any situation. Understanding this and acting accordingly changed my life.

Exactly this.

Initially, most newcomers to the Red Pill are reluctant to entertain the idea of "women as children", even for the sake of thought-exercise. It is too distasteful for them.

But all you have to do is let the idea into your mind just long enough to judge an event through that lens. Then, when it happens, everything suddenly snaps into place.

You realize that all of women's past behaviours can be described by this model, and all of women's future behaviours can be predicted by it.

It is the surest way I have seen for men to leave the anger phase and start making significant progress in their sexual agenda (and by extension their greater life agenda).

This is the reason why nicknames like "baby" and "babe" were so popular amongst men for their LTRs. The nickname was an effective way to frame the girl as inferior to the man, and the man as her carer. The girl usually liked it, because of the suggested domination.

[–]FrozenSoil17 points18 points  (3 children) | Copy

It took me one instance (recently) to finally, absolutely move my SO from "well maybe she's an adult" to "she's a teenager"

I misplaced my keys, like an adult I had a new set made off of her set, no problems.

I find my old set and then shortly thereafter she misplaced hers.

Now, she doesn't take initiative to make a new set of keys, she doesn't ask for my spare set, so she is without a set of keys.

Needless to say we had a blowup where she calls me upset because the house is locked and she can't get in. Initially I'm upset at her because she didn't do the responsible adult thing and make sure she had keys to enter the house.

It took me a a few minutes of being pissed at her to realize that I messed up. I didn't make sure she had the keys. I didn't have my crew prepared. I expected an adult to do the adult thing and she didn't.

Lesson learned.

Never let woman manage planning. They simply don't think ahead the same way men do it.

Men work on a conscious stream of action/consequences. We are fighters and expect things to go wrong. We handle adversity better. We are more adaptable and can adjust our stream to accommodate the new realities. It is very forebrain thinking.

Women work on a TODO list that ends with a reward. When things go wrong, they have an emotional reaction and seek help (usually from men, if in the workplace). They don't anticipate problems. IT's very middle brain thinking.

If you manage women, you have to teach them to prepare their TODO lists that are adaptable. If they have a procedure for it, they can succeed. The first female VP of R&D I ever dealt with gave me a project schedule. I told her it was missing "slack time" and she needed to fix it. She didn't understand; I explained--extra time at each milestone to absorb problems. She refused to do it.

Yeah, bitch, is it any wonder you were three months late to delivery? Next time listen to me and I'll teach you....

Holy shit man, this was exactly my headache yesterday. I'm the only male involved in planning and logistics at my company, and we had a major delivery day that I've been running for the last few years. I know the drill at this point.

Every year since I started there, this big day has been a clusterfuck of poor preparation, sudden problems, customers not prepared for the delivery, payment issues, you name it. Every year there are major crises and the schedule gets derailed within two or three hours of the day beginning.

So this year they let me pick out all the times. I added a few minutes per order for preparation, added twenty minutes per travel for the drivers (one of which is me), and generally padded the schedule to make room for the inevitable problems that we all should expect, based on past experience.

Come delivery day, I had my truck loaded twenty minutes before I absolutely had to leave. So I was helping them load the second truck, instead of leaving them to fend for themselves, and we got the whole second order ready before I left.

During that entire time, what did I get? Nothing but shit. Because I 'fucked up the whole timing' of the day, most of the workers had some downtime between preparing orders, instead of it being screaming chaos like it always has been. The boss, bereft of anything useful to do, insulted me for a few minutes and then went to McDonald's. I suppose from her perspective, she wound up paying four people to stand around for a few goddamned minutes. She has absolutely no memory of the babytown frolics of past years.

Oh and what was the only actual fuckup that day? The women in charge just plain didn't process one of their customers' orders.

Shit, you must have worked for my old boss

[–]MajorStyles8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

There is one thing that proves this 100%...

Women hate one another. Why do you think that is? Wrap your fucking brain around that for awhile and don't let it go.

It's because they treat one another like garbage. Children abusing other children. Just like a lawless playground, where big kids push little kids to the ground. That's how they roll. Then you enter the picture...big stupid puppy dog with your chivalry nonsense. They think you fell down from the stupidity sky.

The only way to survive around a woman and be happy is to develop the Dark Triad qualities of narcissism and Machiaevllianism. That way, you're always one step ahead of their shit, and you milk them for your own personal gain at every turn.

You either use them, or get used. Take your pick.

[–]RedMoonAscendant6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yes. Women are like children, and they create a dystopian Lord of the Flies environment wherever they're in charge. Take a look at any all-woman endeavor.

Is it any wonder everything is going so rapidly to shit in Western Civilization? It's a matriarchy, with all the degeneracy and lunacy and hysteria that involves. If we want any order in this chaos, we need to bring back a patriarchy.

[–]Renaissancepirate4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

This for me is one of the two articles that made the biggest impact on me when I was just swallowing the pill. The moment when you realize that men and women ARE biologically different.

[–]TRPApprentice6 points7 points  (2 children) | Copy

Its true that women never grow up. They will always be that cock hungry rabble rouser that they were at 17.

[–]KartagoPill6 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy

Hey it's how nature works. They have a role in world. To do kids. But hey that's so sexist when a man says it. Double standards.

[–]rp_phoenix1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Wow, what a post. This really made the "women are children" motto click for me. As men, we have to responsible for our actions and her actions. Just like your parents had to wake you up so you wouldn't br late to school, you have to anticipate her missteps so you can be there to correct them.

[–]lukeyj_gtfc1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Almost agree with most of what you say here. Great philosophical point.

Marriage vows I think are intended. You can't absolve men of responsibility. They were likely too beta and dried their woman up and she was repulsed by him. It's honest to divorce. Dishonest to live in repulsed misery.

[–]Battle-Scars1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I agree 100%, the only problem with men treating women like children is a lot of men have not raised children so they don't have that skill set.

[–]1Entropy-70 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Reading this makes me want to read the literature on raising and disciplining children/teenagers to see if there are any strategies applicable to managing your SO/GF/plate/LTR/wife.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
