This isn’t going to happen for you.

Read this shit.

Reinventing history has been a favorite hobby of raging jackasses for at least the last century. Let’s say it’s bookended in the industrial era by the Lost Cause movement at the end of the Civil War and the Lost Men movement at the beginning of the new civil war that seems to be brewing, the latter of which we are going to discuss now.

The author of the above-linked article leans into the Jordan Peterson theory of Lost Men to explain why, apparently, young men can’t get themselves laid, and lays the systemic problems squarely at the feet of women:

  • Average women only want to date “above their station”
  • Average women are winning at this game of dating above their station, and average men are losing
  • Average men are being victimized by feminism’s assault on The Patriarchy, consuming innocent men who don’t participate or benefit (this is a line straight out of Peterson’s mouth)
  • And my personal favorite from the article: “But I think many of these problems, in part, stem from decades of dunking on average men without giving them any guidance on how to navigate life.”

It’s funny that he brings up the last couple of decades, because I remember them quite well given that I just turned 40:
