Women Have Value!

Yes, quite right. Only the most insecure of boys would fear being too nice to a good woman. Good men enjoy being romantic as a demonstration of masculinity. It’s quaint to appreciate people for their traits and character rather than capitalist cogs that might give you something or service a desire.

Secular Patriarchy

I remember, I believe it was in the latter part of 11th grade, a kind of ritual had developed for me; the wonderful excitement of watching my favorite girl enter into the classroom again. I was always happy to see her again, I felt reassured that now I was going to be with her (in the same room as her) for the next hour, and I was always very curious to see what kind of mood she would be in today. I had started to think to myself that maybe I should pursue her, to show her more directly and obviously that I “liked her,” to “let her know” and “make it clear” that I liked her. The idea of being more forward with her was quite intimidating, it was not how I was used to acting and I didn’t really know how she would respond. So I started to…

Liberals hate honour culture

https://theweek.com/article/index/267126/why-honor-causes-all-of-societys-problems

Because it involves backing up your words with actions.

As if South America is a model for anything when history is the biggest honour culture sample of all. And it worked great, peace for centuries within a nation. Handily, left academics have no reputations in the real world, preferring to shun the society they pretend to study (and bitch about it behind its back, like a teenage girl). Biting the hand that feeds… and writes your pay cheques.

You can read between the lines on this one, it’s a negative example.

One redeeming paragraph;

After all, there’s nothing inherently wrong with honor or reputational concerns. They can encourage people to treat others with kindness and be respectful of boundaries. In fact, in the control conditions of Nisbett and Cohen’s experiments — where there was no prior insult — Southerners tended to act in less aggressive and more courteous ways than Northerners.

You neglected to mention that earlier, it changes the experimental condition of the entire thing.

For an American example if you must, look to the Wild West. Contrary to stereotype, few people died in that honour culture from shooting, when guns were new and everyone had one, because no one started shit they couldn’t back up. Duelling and small fights make larger events rare. Unlike nowadays, where school shootings are commonplace because people let it build up until they explode.

…it’s not unreasonable to picture a world 25 years from now where the meaning of honor has shifted to encompass backing down from violence and seeking help for mental health trouble.

Completely out of touch. The opposite: defending and protecting, self-reliance.
In that event? Cui bono? The writers of the studies for mental illness (psychiatry) and mind’s psychology, these people. What a coincidence.

It ends covering its arse;

Ultimately, we’re still a long way from understanding enough about honor ideology to easily alleviate the problems it may cause. While researchers have made great strides in linking honor concerns to a variety of different outcomes, more must be learned about the specific cognitive processes, emotions, and individual differences that determine whether an abstract endorsement of honor norms will lead to a specific behavior. Perhaps one day the aggressive pursuit of honor or respect will be so farfetched no TV writer will consider it worthy of their attention.

Notice the common barrage of inference it’s a bad thing? Not just bad, EVIL! Every evil. “All of society’s problems.”

Honour culture? Used to be called chivalry.

On– Cries of “Chivalry is dead?”

You know what killed it? Feminism.
The radical notion that men don’t need to do shit for women anymore, they can do it by themselves.

When this tops the charts and qualifies as music we don't get a free pass anymore

Who owns your record company, Beyoncé?

Ask yourself: You want men to act like gents around you, have you tried acting like a lady?
“I shouldn’t have to.” Exactly.

Case closed.

Case closed.

 

Quick Wisdom, Chivalry: Give up your seat

Allowing a woman your seat was a kind gesture because it made the likelihood of her fainting due to her corset considerably less. If you’re not wearing a corset, don’t expect a seat.
Second, gentlemen acted the part around ladies. A lady denied a seat would keep quiet and sweet about it. There is a lack of entitlement displayed demonstrating the right to better treatment. As a choice, not an enforced rule.
