Greetings and salutations comrades,
In this thread we can talk about the incel problem in late stage capitalism. While a highly controversial and sensationalistic topic, it would be a topic that requires dialogue considering a sizable and active community of incels. While Elliot Rodger would be a rather extreme example of incel his manifesto indicates quite common challenges among the incel community. It would appear that many males had experienced long term incelhood, if the blogs and forums over the years are anything to go by.
Prior to GenX and GenY the baby boomers had enjoyed high wages, unionisation and even home ownership at a very young age. When the baby boomers had birthed the GenX and GenY (permitting some from the Silent Generation birthing them too) they had imparted certain expectations to their daughters. Those expectations were job, car and house by 23 otherwise they should reject the male if they dont meet those prerequisites. The boomers got theirs sort to speak in their day and yet after the late 1970's and mid 1980's unions were undermined, wages stagnated and offshoring began. By the late 1990's and mid 2000's there was housing bubble and eventually the said financial crisis.
Millennials entering the workforce had faced the dreaded 5 billion years experience folding envelopes or pushing a wheelbarrow, of course when companies could not "find qualified and skilled workers" they tasked the government to legislate a visa program. In turn Millennials were suggested to "volunteer" for experience which was something out of Rich Dad, Poor Dad. Once Millennials entered the workforce they dealt with stagnant wages and high cost of living. Despite that the Millennials males did not quite secure a job, car and house by 23, which the bourgie media slandered them for it for years blaming it on avocado toast. It would seem that despite that Millennial women being in the workforce for years have not secured the trifecta either meantime having the niceties of elder Boomer and GenX women (maybe bourgies) telling Millennial men to "grow up and man up", and yet in accordance with their boomer parents expect those from the males.
For years since at least 2008 the establishment of the manosphere and MGTOW and its culmination during the gamergate years had banded many men from many walks of life experiencing the same isolation and depravity of even the most basic female affection. The manosphere and MGTOW as a collective had figured that they were merely placed as an insurance policy (metaphorically speaking) once the female enjoys a partying, drinking, wining, dining and dating males that have the job, car and house (at least 2/3 of them). The insurance policy was that she would not be able to be as visually appealing so she would settle for an incel (or manchild) who has been waiting for her for 10+ years to notice him. The good old "I'll let him chase me until I let him catch me" as advised to them by the elder females not to mention being entangled in divorce court if she has got "bored" and if it lasts the dead bedroom (sex like once or twice a year, if that)
Now, more than ever males have opted out of being a drone or cattle for the "roastie" and "thot" as the manosphere and MGTOW gained validity serving as a warning to males in general. Females that had the "time of their life" has become entrenched with the demands, expectations and shaming. Even the bourgie media had been on the side of the females when they were clearly wrong from Oprah and Dr Phil to the morning news shows now its even bloggers (the whiteknights. simps and manginas according to the manosphere and MGTOW). Real estate agents and retailers had tried the shaming tactics too as Millennials were not spending into those sectors and now they push their advertising to boomers speculating that they would repeat they same spending style of the 60's, 70s and 80s.
What do you think?
