As it turns out, despite all of the evidence to the contrary, that the happiest people on the planet are middle-aged childless women who men are no longer interested in.
Good news for women feeling pressure to rush toward the altar and/or motherhood: You might be happier (and live longer!) just the way you are.
As reported by The Guardian, professor of behavioral science Paul Dolan said on Saturday that while “married people are happier than other population subgroups,” that only applies to “when their spouse is in the room when they’re asked how happy they are.”
“When the spouse is not present: f—ing miserable,” added Dolan, who teaches at the London School of Economics, adding, “The healthiest and happiest population subgroup are women who never married or had children.”
Interestingly, the opposite was true for men — meaning they seemed to get more of a benefit from marriage than women because, as Dolan explained, they “calmed down” after tying the knot.
“We do have some good longitudinal data following the same people over time, but I am going to do a massive disservice to that science and just say: If you’re a man, you should probably get married; if you’re a woman, don’t bother,” Dolan added.
Of course, Dr. Dipshit Dolan here would struggle to explain what the joy in living longer is when you have no spouse, children, or grandchildren to share it with, or going further, to have anyone who can take care of you in your infirm old-age.
A few years back, before I began taking a heightened interest in politics and culture, I was an avid read in what is called the manosphere. It’s a section of the internet that is awesome in that it is pro-masculine. On these websites and channels, men can find much useful advice on how to become psychologically tougher, improve their physicality, and channel their drives towards productive goals, all of which will help them with the ladies.
Unfortunately, many but not all of these sites also have some pretty harsh views about women, generally speaking. It particularly struck me as odd that many manosphere gurus believed and taught that women were the true social elites that lived blissful lives at the expense of men, who they deliberately oppressed psychologically, legally, and financially. To these observers of the intersexual dynamics, men had it terrible and women had it incredible.
The only problem in their analysis was empirical reality. I didn’t know many women who I would classify as happy, especially after a certain age. And while the manospherians would lament that men’s poor status in the world was largely due to malicious social engineering via academia and the media, they failed to acknowledge that women were subjected to the same malicious indoctrination.
I mean sure, it might be flattering to a woman growing up in the world where every teacher and warrior princess Disney movie tells you that if you wish upon a star you can be anything you want to be, whether it’s an NFL quarterback, a Fortune 500 CEO, or a Senator. But that ignores the fact that it is all the more frustrating when the same women who grow up believing that non-sense arrive in the real-world and painfully realize it was all a lie.
Which brings us back to the article. There have been no shortage of charlatans in academia, in the media, or in Hollywood, who have attempted to brainwash desperate women into believing that “You don’t need no man, sweetheart.” This has been disastrous for women who don’t figure out it is a lie until they are thirty-five and realize that the men who were interested in them a decade ago have moved on to younger and greener pastures.
For women at this age, and unlike the men at the same juncture in time, it is largely too late to pursue a a traditional path that they would find fulfilling, a life centered around home and children. Most women who have made it that far without settling down already will be too spiritually broken, due to their many sexual partners, to live a traditional life. Others, who are strong enough to change directions, will struggle to be able to attract a man they find suitable. And for the rare women who can both change their wills and attract a suitable man, they will still be beginning that journey nearly two decades after God designed to them to. It’s often a sad road for women who figure out the lies of feminism late in life.
The immediate goal of such programming against marriage and children is more about preventing the latter than the former. Of course, in almost all cases, marriage leads to children, so it’s imperative to destroy both. The current abhorrence that the “Experts” find in having children is indicative of a hatred of themselves. As all humans are ipso facto children, the no children crowd fight against something that they are by nature. It self-hatred that on a macro-scale will lead to societal destruction.
