Greetings and salutations comrades,
In the sequel to the Late Stage Capitalism: The Incel Issue (which was dumplocked despite over 200 replies with some quite insightful and well-meaning posts), comes Late Stage Capitalism: The Thot Phenomenon.
Lets start with the Baby Boomers which epitomise late stage Capitalism itself, the generation of late stage Capitalism perhaps. During the years of high unionisation, high wages, high purchasing power, high production and high availability of jobs the Baby Boomers had attained "real" jobs, car and house by their early twenties. Many got married and birthed children by their late twenties. The baby boomers could have a single member of the family working to support approximately up to and including 4 family members. Queue the Baby Boomer father that would be working to support said family. He would have gone to work, returned home, sit on his couch watch prime time television until sleep time while been quite distant from his kids leaving it to his wife.
Enter the daughters of the Baby Boomers which became accustomed to a distant and neglectful father. Very likely to the daughters the fathers and father figures demonstrate male behaviour which they learn from osmosis to study. Despite the distance and neglect its inescapable that he is her father, it would be reiterated in this post later. As the daughter grows and by the time she reached her teens her father would have lectured her that if the "guy" does not have a "real" job, car and house by 23 to disapprove of him. The father would have reinforced the point by refering to himself as an example of that with the mother being a witness.
Since the decline of union membership and purchasing power, "real" job, car and house by 23 was not feasible for many males. Many males as such we sidelined, as we discussed in the incel thread, for the females particularly the reactionary females had engaged in unsavoury behaviour. While "buying a drink" was customary of the boomer males to make a genuine female acquaintance and partner it had mutated into a free drinks scheme for later generations (namely GenX and Millennials). The males without "real" job, car and house seemed that they were usually targeted and the males themselves were abetting that kind of behaviour (obliviously even) by utilising and sacrificing their labour for the said scheme. "Buying a drink" would have been reserved by the males that satisfied the 3 prerequisites or 2/3 to potentiate its aforementioned effect. That quickly advanced into free entry for girls into bars and nightclubs, if not queue-jumping. Later some clubs had adopted the "guys can only get in with girls" policy (to be fair, most clubs had kept an open policy) and referring to the 3 prerequisites it seemed to have been a filter to contain undesirable males. Other clubs had male quotas but not female quotas. Usually those clubs were gathering places for large numbers of thots and other reactionary females of sorts. Thots and the like have been fabled to have "daddy issues" with compensatory behaviour like attention seeking, if a male had treated her well and was "nice" to her it would simply not register. It would have accorded to the way her father treated her, maybe her own brother, but she upheld the standard of her father as the right way distant and all - it is her father after all. Of course if the male was nice and had satisfied the 3 (or 2/3) prerequisites it would register as at least it accorded with her daddy's lecture and advice. If he wasnt nice but had the 3 prerequisites it was good enough, if he wasnt nice and didnt have the 3 prerequisites but treats her like her dad did with distance and neglect it was good enough too. More and that later.
