This comment was left at Alpha Game yesterday and commented on at Vox Popoli (Bolding in mine):

Feminism is already a dead woman walking. All feminism has is shaming language and the State (ironically, ultimately other men) to keep men to the feminist line.

But now, increasingly, the shaming doesn’t work. And men are disengaging from society in general to avoid entanglements with the state; if you don’t get married, you can’t be divorced, if you don’t co-habit you can’t have half your stuff appropriated, if you don’t have children, you can’t be on the hook for child support, if you don’t enter the corporate world you can’t be be accused of ‘harassment’ and if you don’t date you drastically reduce your chance of a false rape accusation.

These are genuine threat points for men in the modern world that didn’t exist before feminism. It speaks to the feeble minds of feminists that they would think that men will simply carry on as they did when these threats did not exist. For the last 50 years men (mostly) still did. But that’s over now.

So men are doing what they have always done: survey their environment, understand it, and behave rationally according to it. Which means, increasingly, living their lives without regard to what women want. This does not mean living without sex, relationships or female company. Just that the investment men make in all these areas is being dramatically reduced.

As feminism reduces the value of women (in men’s eyes), so men are reducing the amount of time, effort, attention and money they are willing to spend for the declining benefits modern women now bring to their lives.

But the real news is that the true cost of feminism, first born by men, and then children, is now being passed on to women. Record numbers of women are living alone, record numbers of women are childless, record numbers are on psychiatric medication, record numbers are facing a life-time of wage slavery in grinding jobs that they can never leave. And still feminism spins these outcomes as the conscious choices of these women and as ’empowering’.

And yet, women’s self-reported happiness, across all classes, all races, all demographics is lower than ever since records began 50 years ago. Tellingly, for the first time ever, their happiness is also now lower than men’s.

But you do not need to read ‘The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness’ to know this. Just talk to the increasing number of 30 and 40 year old childless spinsters one on one – not in a group – to get the REAL story. The REAL effect of feminism in the REAL world. These women don’t give two hoots about feminism, they are just wondering where all the good husbands, hell, ANY decent man, went.

Mostly, disgusted with what feminism has done to women, he walked away.

For the truth is that men don’t want to fight women, it goes against the core of what it means to be a man. But feminism thrust men into a fight that they neither started nor wanted. To the point that feminists are reduced to crowing about ‘winning’ battles that men never turned up for.

And even now, as feminism pushes and pushes and pushes to ever more absurd levels, as ever more restrictions are placed on normal masculine behavior, ever more insane definitions of ‘rape’, ‘assault’, and ‘aggression’ are drafted into law in increasingly desperate attempts to somehow, anyhow, cast women as perpetual victims – even now – men are still refusing to be drawn into a real battle.

That’s how deeply men do not want to fight women.

The sound of the final battle between the sexes will not be heard in the streets or legislatures. It will not be televised or reported. There will be no flags hoisted or victory parades. Because it is already in progress. It is happening all around us in plain sight, for those with the eyes to see it.

And men are deploying the most devastating weapon of all – indifference. In this final battle who cares least wins.

The time has come to reap the harvest of feminism, and for women the fruit will be bitterest of all.

For anyone following the Rabid and Sad Puppies (I don’t know of a single post to explain what these are.  In a nutshell, these movements are an attempt to fight back against SJW’s in the Hugo Awards) in Sci/Fi or GamerGate might recognize this.  While Sad/Rabid Puppies and GamerGaters care very much for good books and the games they wish to design, they are indifferent to what the SJWs think of, say about, and in many cases, do to them.  Very often all the SJWs can do is push them out of their group, which to them is the very worst punishment available.  What they have discovered is that you can’t eject someone from your group who was never part of it and never had any desire to be part of it.

We are also seeing this when it comes to feminism.  People no longer care that they are being labeled misogynist, hateful, weak, dumb, what-have-you.  They’ve left the club and it didn’t hurt or they never joined the club and just don’t care.  Yes, feminist SJWs can still hurt people in a very concrete way (job loss, loss of reputation, loss of family) but the indifference is still there and it is growing.  Men finding jobs that cover themselves or taking jobs they do not care if they lose, men not staking their reputation on the thoughts of woman and men not marrying feminists (or not marrying at all) is taking away the SJWs power.

This is only going to continue to grow.  Feminists short sitedness (and lack of respect) didn’t see men adjusting to the cultural changes.  They saw men dutifully playing the provider husband no matter what we decided to do to them . . . and like it.  Well, men don’t like it and and they will continue to do what they must, and not care.
