All this is true. But there’s more.
A long time ago, back in my twenties, I had a serious, monogamous relationship that lasted for more than four years. We talked about Read More

Book review of In Defense of Women by H.L. Menken
Books are wonderful travel companions. So many times I have read something that has been perfectly illustrated in my alien surroundings. Also books don’t fart in the tent or want to go shopping.
These days H.L. Menken’s most famous book is probably In Defense of Women. Some of his reflections seem misguided and contrary to red pill wisdom until you consider the context in which he observed the hoochimamas. I currently live in a similar cultural environment so I can perhaps help to explain what he means.
Today in the west, East Asia and some other places we live in a sexual free market where there are no Read More
There are few things more toe curling and grimace educing than a contemptuous wife.
You’ve been there before. You have dinner with a couple and every time the husband does something – carves meat or passes a spoon or fiddles with the light switch – his wife will roll her eyes at the utterly stupid and useless way he’s doing it.

Both of them followed up with something that surprised me immensely: they asked me if it was because Read More

If you’re gainfully employed like I am then you’ll agree the biggest difficulty is not cost, but time.
Weekdays are right out. I rise in the dark, run or lift, work, cook, read a few pages and fall unconscious until an hour before the following dawn. If I want to scratch my arse during the week I have to schedule Read More
I’ve been around the block a few times.
I’ve had a lot of girlfriends and there have been many, less serious others who have come and gone over the years.
So, why am I not married? Why have I never even come close?
Even in my deepest, darkest days swilling pills of azure, I maintained a small particle of self-regard. I would not take seriously a woman who demonstrated that she would hurt me or who was otherwise not up to scratch.
So what are their sins, these ladies who didn’t make the grade? I list them here for your convenience and education: Read More
