I find it funny when men complain about an issue with women that applies to men.
Especially so when it applied to men first, applies to men worst and caused the social acceptability among women.
There is, give or take, around a forty-year lag between any social poison perpetrated by men and taken up over time to reach a similar mass in women, the max among that sex who are interested. Hypocritical men suddenly notice and disapprove.
A few examples, you can think of your own.
James Bond playboy culture ~ approx 1965.
Sex and the City/Hook-up culture ~ 2005.
College is the key to a good job ~ 1970.
Everyone goes to college ~ 2010.
Men party, sleep around and shirk consequences ~ late 1920s.
Women party, sleep around and get abortions ~ 1960s-70s.
Men vote for socialism ~ 1870s
Women vote for socialism ~ 1910s
Men want free stuff from the Government on a welfare state ~ 1910s
Women …. you get the picture, don’t you? ~ 1950s.
This is an interesting time range.
e.g. In Stefan’s recent video
Mid-Late 1910s – USD over-takes GBP, takes all the gold too.
Late 40s, Early 50s – USA spends all the gold, shortly comes off Gold Standard (70s). Practically one bubble every decade hence up until now when there’s no more money printing left (called it!)… America due to be ruined by petroyuan in 3, 2, 1…
[I called that too, about seven times.]
1970s obese men become normalized.
2010s fat acceptance movement in women.
1960s Beetle mania, Elvis, rock stars
2000s Reality TV and fake celebrities
1870s Victorian attire for men loses formality with each decade here on out, for convenience and health.
1910s women start loosening the corset and shortening hemlines so they don’t fall over. Exercise takes off.
1880s male crossdressing, theatrical make-up acts and BDSM in Europe.
1920s – female crossdressing, androgyny, make-up and sexual (sometimes lesbian) parties
1930s alcoholic men
1970s women begin to drink like men
1940s brotherhood social clubs
1980s sisterhood and shoulder pads
1970s Civil Rights movement among mostly black men
2010s Black women do not shut up about social justice and intersectionality.
1980s not getting married starts to lose stigma and social shame.
Close to 2020, the general consensus seems to be more shame for getting married.
1970s no-fault divorce? multiple marriages take off
2010s everyone divorce, cohabitation (living in sin) takes off
1960s Men: too many people is bad for the environment.
2000s Women: too many white babies is bad for the environment.
In at least 9/10, men started it. Men could finish many social ills, they don’t want to.
40 years is just long enough for it to feel fresh and daring again because everyone forgot the first time.
1980: you’d have to be an idiot not to invest in the stock market!
Now: you’d have to be an idiot not to invest in bitcoin!
A good way to predict the next decade is what themes happened 25-35 years ago.
Posting is gonna be patchy, I’m running out of content recently. Not much good going on.
