I recently read a quote that said, “Economics is the study of secondary consequences.” Then feminism would be purposeful blindness to secondary consequences, which are coming home to roost as we speak.
The reality is human biology makes it impossible for a large percentage of women to focus on casual sex and professional advancement to the degree that feminism insists is only natural. The reason for this is children require more investment than women themselves can provide. Women who want to be mothers need to extract resources from men in order to be truly successful parents. Many have looked at the success of a small number of widows in raising their children without the help of a husband and assumed husbands and fathers aren’t really necessary. However, what is possible as an exception isn’t something we can build a society on. Aside from those who started with great wealth, widows have always struggled to provide for and raise their children. In a healthy society made primarily of husband lead households they also benefit from an in tact social and familial structure.
While mankind concludes its great feminism experiment, today’s men are getting reamed for something that, ultimately, will collapse.

There is insufficient incentive to keep the mass of men producing at the levels needed to transfer enough wealth to women.
