The Newest War on Women by Abigail Favale
She misunderstands feminism and the hypergamy which it cannot rid itself of.
The idea that women exist primarily for the pleasure of men has never been more explicit, more omnipresent, than in our ostensibly feminist age. Some feminists have even embraced this, singing the sex-positive praises of pornography and prostitution as somehow empowering for women. And even those willing to name and criticize the pervasive sexualization of women and girls are less willing to acknowledge the ways in which feminism itself has contributed to it. I often find it exhausting—and, yes, infuriating—to watch self-identifying feminists decry the rotten fruits of the sexual revolution while they simultaneously tend the roots.
Unlike the author (see what she writes later about her own experience as an adolescent), many women have no problem recognizing their sexuality and sexual desires, and they, before men, are the ones who sexualize themselves, so that they are desirable to men, even if they intend this display to be for only the right men.
It's simply not right that women can't easily find male slaves to meet all of their sexual demands. https://t.co/QHoSKM7KSz— Roosh (@rooshv) April 10, 2019
Amateurs. Sounds like that game where people put a story together by contributing a line or two and then the next person adds something, etc.
But even if he had a plan, Abrams is a hack who has shown very little creativity.

But why would anyone want to embrace a weak, enemic sort of Christianity that has no real political consequence? We are not in a time of murderous persecution yet.

“Beer is one example,” says Dr. R. Jared Staudt, author of The Beer Option: Brewing a Catholic Culture, Yesterday & Today, “of how we should order our habits, including eating and drinking, to the glory of God.”

I almost never do things like this — get together with friends face to face, I mean. It’s not because I don’t want to, certainly, but I have to concede that I don’t try very hard to make it happen.
Priorities. Where are people's priorities? Or do people find it easier to live in their head? For young people, they probably believe they prioritize friendship, but their friendship is based on feeling rather than virtue and a shared life of virtue. Hence they will not even understand what it is to actually live in community.
It is a familiar hypothesis that young men today don’t make the same efforts that they did in the past to court women because the ease with which hardcore pornography is available to them satisfies their immediate erotic desires. I have a feeling that the same kind of thing is at work with me and maintaining friendships.
A familiar hypothesis from blue pill tradcons, of whom Dreher could be counted as one.
Dreher should be asking himself how many real friends does he have within a 10-mile radius, as should we all.
