And here does The Great One sit in his new office. An office larger than the previous office. Which is good. Except that now the trash can is farther away from the desk. Which is bad. Not near as many college girls outside the window. Which is bad. And right now the main thing outside the window is snow. AKA global warming.
And snow is bad m’kay.
The Great One likes white. The Great One likes seeing white. But not this kind of white.
What’s out there on the interwebz I should comment upon today? How about statistics. It’s been a while since I’ve reminded you to read the book How To Lie With Statistics by Darrell Huff.
Clarey posted a stats recently about da single mothers. (Hey Clarey! How do I get da single mothers!)
The “unofficial stance,” I argue, didn’t finally get out into the public until the citizens’ media in the form of the internet had the bandwidth and platforms to do so. And while Oprah, the Democrat party, and every ancient washed up women’s print magazine in the world was still towing the “She Works Hard for the Money” line, young women started noticing on;
Blogs they read
Podcasts they listened to
YouTube channels they watched,
and most certainly
their social media accounts
that men were sick and god damned tired of the 24-7, non-stop, “rah rah single mom” worship-bullshit and distinctly did not like, want to worship, nor want to marry, single moms.
Not only was this “unofficial stance” against single moms, but it was so vehement, so clear, and so consistent that young women actually started to pay attention. And while I’m sure some education, access to birth control, and other sociological variables are in part to explain the collapse in single motherhood, I would bet my left nut that men letting their honest opinions about single motherhood be known publicly on the internet has scared young women straight into not fucking up by becoming a single mom.
Clarey is happy about this. As he should be. Fewer single mothers is a good thing. And while Clarey is not attempting to lie to us with this statistic this statistic is something of a lie when taken in a vacuum.
It may (or may not) be a fact that the number of single mothers is in decline.
But this tells us nothing of the cause. Clarey being the optimist he is always looks for the good in a situation (unlike his twin the evil Clarey who runs Asshole Consulting) and thus concludes that the womynz have been reading red pill websites, discovered that men aren’t romantically attracted to single mothers and thus the gurls in their party years have decided to stop riding cock and avoid that bad boy sperm.
Along comes Piggott is inject some reality.
Massive flaw in Cappy’s argument in bold for those to dim to notice it for themselves. Because there is a government program that helps single women get rid of pregnancies and that is called abortion, also known as legally sanctioned murder, but that’s just me being picky.
The abortion stats in the USA for 2017 were 862,320 abortions which is actually a decline since 1973 when baby murder was legalised. I know that you’re all thinking that this means that Cappy is right but there is another piece of data to consider – the overall drop in the fertility rate.
Fertility rates declined in almost all states between 2014 and 2017, and it is unlikely that the decline in abortion was due to an increase in unintended births.
There’s another factor to consider as well and that is the decline in sexual activity in young people which has been quite comprehensively covered around the manosphere by various writers. It’s hard for girls to get pregnant if boys aren’t able to score and we all know the realities of that little bugbear.
One of Piggott’s points is that young people are having less sex. Wrong. I don’t care that this has been “comprehensively covered around the manosphere”. Some young people are having less sex that’s for certain. Some.
Once again we see a disconnect in statistics. STDs in young people are going up. I’ve talked about his before. Since it’s cold outside and I’m okay with avoiding driving the $500 pickup truck to work I’m gonna go statistic hunting right now to prove (or disprove) my point.
And here we go. Screen shots from a CDC report on STDs. Find the whole thing at this link:
The numbers to look at are the last three columns. Those are rates per 100,000 population: total, male, female.
First up, Chlamydia.
We can see that the 15-19 year old zoomers are trailing a bit behind the 20-24 age bracket. Maybe because they haven’t been alive as long?
This masturbatory fantasy of manosphere bloggers that the zoomers aren’t having sex, will vote Trump, and save the world doesn’t hold much water when you consider that STDs are TRANSMITTED BY FUCKING not by reading manosphere blogs and voting for cucked Republicans.
On the other accounts Piggott is right. Fewer single mothers? Maybe so. Factor in abortion, Plan B pills, homosexuality, the unhealthy state of women which adds to infertility, mental illnesses which lead to women being unfuckable by even the most beta of males, and probably some other factors I’m not thinking of at the moment.
I don’t want to discourage you from looking at the world with hope. I simply want to encourage you to look at the world realistically.
