The NY Times has been on a downward spiral since the days of the runup to the Second Iraq war, but this may be a new low for the paper- an editorial written by Ross Douthat echoing Robin Hanson's 'redistribution of sex' post. As an aside, I suggest to Douthat, like I suggested to Hanson, that, if incels not getting laid is a problem, they can personally let the incels fuck them. Sic transit glory hole mundi.
Douthat is a proto-manosphere CHUD, as his 'origin story', related in his first book, reveals:
One successful foray ended on the guest bed of a high school friend’s parents, with a girl who resembled a chunkier Reese Witherspoon drunkenly masticating my neck and cheeks. It had taken some time to reach this point–“Do most Harvard guys take so long to get what they want?” she had asked, pushing her tongue into my mouth. I wasn’t sure what to say, but then I wasn’t sure this was what I wanted. My throat was dry from too much vodka, and her breasts, spilling out of pink pajamas, threatened my ability to. I was supposed to be excited, but I was bored and somewhat disgusted with myself, with her, with the whole business… and then whatever residual enthusiasm I felt for the venture dissipated, with shocking speed, as she nibbled at my ear and whispered–“You know, I’m on the pill…”
Let's run this one through the translator...
Okay, so we get weak-chinned Ross, a high school beta, who now has encountered a former Stacy (Reese Witherspoon), who has gone down in Sexual Market Value (chunkier), so she is attempting to lure Ross into the 'Beta Bucks and Alpha Fucks' (Harvard guys) system, but Ross is turned off because she has got to have been riding on the 'cock carousel' (on the pill).
Ross had the incel lingo down pat before there was even a movement.
