Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
das monde:
Women certainly are more mean to them.

What's starting to come through is das monde is subtly expressing a doubt that feminism is going to last long as the inequality gap widens. More women are going to realise how the fastest way to enter the alpha circle is to project their favour onto alpha men, budding 1%ers.

This is depressing but possibly true...

I believe part of the problem is that the most successful women playing alpha in a patriarchy have to internalise the 'rules of the game' and often become more male than males in order to beat us on our own turf.

Maggie, Hillary, Carly, Angie, Theresa May and the gang are only serving feminism obliquely in the least inspiring way. They are like spiritual transvestites, dolled up as women while out-toughing men on the economic and political battlefields.

I saw an interview between Paxman and Hillary the other day that showed Hill in a better light than when she campaigned for President. Possibly she has transcended the previous phase and can model femininity and politics in a more authentic way, that would be really interesting if it survived the gruelling 2 year marathon of the campaign.

I had experience with a career lady lawyer from L.A. once and it was an eye-opener listening to her tell of how difficult it was for her to find a man who was not intimidated by her salary.

Thankfully there are (a few) women who see through the status marking games and use their access to their own wholeness (encouraged by enlightened feminism) to encourage men to transcend the pissing contest of ego territoriality and seek security in relationship between equals, where both genders share in flexible roles. This intimacy can only be enjoyed when those roles are left at the door.

Then there are women who choose weaker men to punish for the centuries of unfairness inflicted on them, but that's another story!

I wish you better luck in finding women who are looking for more than BSDs, because then you may feel differently about the destiny your words imply, ie that we will all regress once we realise our ecological limits and the middle class disappear and go back to patriarchy.

You may just have been hanging out with the wrong crowd!
