False Consciousness, Self Image and Women in Western Countries
In a previous post, I wrote about that the comically delusional beliefs held by majority of women in West about their sexual desirability are largely a consequence of them internalizing the ideology of neoliberalism which promises its ardent devotees with endless profit and success in a manner similar to an MLM cult. In fact, the very high percentage of women in MLMs is due to the exact same thought patterns which are identical to those behind their delusional belief that they are god’s gift to men. As some of you might also remember, I used to write a lot about using escorts and why they are a much better deal than dating, GFs and wives. In some of those posts, I also gave a multitude of examples of the attitudes and behaviors experienced by me over multiple years and in a variety of situations.
So let us talk about some of intriguing behaviors and mindsets which I have personally seen in women. But before we go there, here is some relevant background information. See.. when starting to use escorts all those years ago, I did not immediately cease to find ‘unpaid’ experiences. In other words, there was a period of a few years where I did try to date while simultaneously using escorts. Note that the escorts were 7s and 8s, with occasional 9s, and quite skilled at their job. However, in the dating world, 4s and 5s kept rejecting me to the point where I made a game out of predicting how each sub-average woman would do so- to the point where it became a darkly comic game. While I could regale you with many stories about how ridiculously inflated the self-worth of women is compared to what they can offer, there is one class of sub-average women who stand out, for reasons you will soon see.
Have you ever wondered what a single mediocre-looking woman in her 30s, working a minimum wage job and on the edge of homelessness could offer a man.. any man? As it turns out, I did- specifically if they could provide cheap, if barely satisfying, lays. A woman in this situation does not have any good options for a number of reasons- such as having hit the wall in addition to having no financial value for a man interested in family formation. She is perilously close to sleeping on sidewalks and turning tricks for drug money. Any rational person would think that a woman in this situation would not be averse to dating a man who is not ugly/ disfigured, especially if there is a chance of getting some free food, drinks and company in return. If that sounds cold-blooded, consider her options or lack of them.
With that calculation in mind, I did approach a few women fitting this description over the period of a few years. As you might have guessed by now, every single one of them rejected my advances- even though I was not needy, persistent or insulting. At this point, I should tell you that I am not white (or black). This will become important as we advance through the rest of this post. While I have experienced many rejections from women over the years, these ones were especially ‘interesting’- and I am using that coldly clinical word because I have long stopped perceiving them as human. And before anyone calls me a “misogynist”.. to hate somebody, you have first see them as human or at least subhuman. I don’t see them as either.
But getting back to the topic, what does this have to do with false consciousness or self image? And what does it have to do with women internalizing the ideology of materialism and neoliberalism? Well.. let me ask you a question- how do most people construct their sense of self or self-image? The simple answer to that question is that the vast majority of people are not mentally capable of creating their own independent sense of self. At this point, you might counter- doesn’t almost everybody have a sense of self? Why.. yes they do, but it is not their own. But if they don’t have a self which is their own, where does it come from? The tasteless answer is that the vast majority of people simply accumulate whatever external beliefs they are exposed to, beginning fromearly childhood, and try to arrange it into something which looks flattering.
This is why most people build their identity around corporate brands of everything from food, clothes, music, sports teams, cars etc. And it doesn’t stop with commercial brands. Considerations such as popular mythology about race, ethnicity etc are also central to this false consciousness and sense of ‘self’. That is why a mediocre-looking white woman in her 30s working a minimum wage job thinks she is too good to have sex with a guy who is not white or black. This does not imply that every single woman is like that.. but most (over 95%) are like that. Sure.. you can eventually find someone whose sense of self is not totally manufactured by somebody else, but is it worth the trouble and extra effort? Alternatively, you could have a high-status career which pays in the six figures. But could you ever really trust such a relationship.
So.. is it possible to fix this situation? The simple answer is NO and here is why. Those who have built their sense of self from the detritus of corporate advertising, delusions of racial superiority etc have nothing to replace it with, which is problematic since that false self forms the core of their identity. Hence, people with nothing to fill the gaping hole left by removal of this fake self will fight tooth and nail to keep it alive. I should also mention that the West is in the midst of a profound technological and socio-economic stagnation in addition to a rapidly accelerating demographic decline. To put it bluntly, this problem will fix itself in a decade or so- though not in a way which allows them to save face. And you know something else- I have always always believed that people should live and die for what they believe.
