MGTOWs reinvent the Handmaid’s Tale, with bonus creepy incest overtones

Happily, there’s a place for women in the coming MGTOW utopia

By David Futrelle

So over in the Men Going Their Way subreddit, the fellas are talking about what to do with “leftover” — i.e. unmarried — women after men finally step up and take the vote away from women, who are always voting for the wrong things anyway.

Apparently unable to understand that most women have jobs, the MGTOWs naturally conclude that in their version of utopia the single ladies — deprived not only of husbands and their resources but of Big Daddy government as well — won’t be able to support themselves. But the MGTOWs, kind ghouls souls all, don’t want to let them starve!

One brave MGTOW has a solution:

BCPrepper 2 points 5 hours ago* All the unmarried women are going to be a serious drain on the system. Rather than using socialism to take care of them like the globalists are hoping for, and since no man wants to be a tradcuck for some CC rider --- I think a better solution is for men to "adopt" one of these leftover women, not as a wife, but as an incubator for a wife. Essentially she'll be impregnated by someone else, and any daughters will be raised to become the man's wives. In return all the women receive shelter, security, and provisioning. Not this perverted materialist provisioning they receive today, which consists of handbags, shoes, McMansions etc. We're talking modest clothes, food. And they will have to pull their weight. This will essentially be a post-collapse society.

(Note: in the preceding quote “CC Rider” refers not to the famous song but to the infamous “cock carousel.”)

Naturally, other MGTOWs are enthusiastic about Mr. BCPrepper’s ingenious proposal.

ZCnegan 4 points 4 hours ago Oh my god. You are a fucking genius. That would actually work. But for that to work, all the pro women laws would have to be abolished, which will happen in case of colapse. Then women without daddy gov to protect them would have to sell themselves very cheap, and still men would not want them. But if I could have a woman raised to by a wife, with 100% loyalty and efficient, and without brainwashing bullshit, then i would maybe consider giving part of my resources, in case i wanted a family/kids and needed a womb. Sex is all they have to offer, and men are becoming tired of it, more and more we see sex for what it is, just sex. And whores are better for it

BCPrepper goes on to praise himself for his “humanitarian” solution to the Leftover Woman Problem.

BCPrepper 1 point 3 hours ago Yup it's the only solution as I see it. Socialism won't work, especially when men don't get good women in return for serving the state. The globalists overplayed their hand, thinking men would just accept their fate as a slave class. Now our biggest concern is Islam taking over. Really not interested in that happening. Artificial wombs might help catalyze the rebirth of western civilization, but it's not a long term solution. There's a humanitarian aspect to caring for the women that made bad choices and are no longer fit for pair bonding. The solution I outlined above gives them safety and purpose.

Such thoughtful fellows these MGTOWs are!

If anyone needs to be trained and domesticated, it’s MGTOWs. The only motives they understand are blind instinctual rutting, reproductive competition, rage, and revenge. Altruism confuses them.

Yep. Also the urge to stalk. They stalk all of womankind, hot on our heels with their hateful messages. I suppose their motive is power — and I suspect they have little of it.

@Falconer

Yeah. It comes down entirely to how many hairs you’re willing to split to support the conclusion you’ve reached before you even begin studying.

The implication in the Original Trilogy is that the Rebels are restoring the Republic, else why would Tarkin talk about sweeping the Senate away?

And even if they aren’t, the Rebellion are strictly better people than the Empire even solely by the film standards, because the Rebels have yet to commit genocide.

Arguing that the Galactic Empire isn’t evil is solely an exercise in trying to excuse fantastic fascism.

And yes, I include the Expanded Universe in this. Some authors tried to imply Palpatine was building the Empire in order to resist the Yuuzhan Vong, but that’s just trying to overlay a new motivation onto an old character who works better as a power-hungry dickbag. Grand Admiral Thrawn, I can believe as having that motivation. Not Palpatine.

Oh yes, Palpatine has been clearly shown in the movies so far to be purely motivated by acquisition of power and absolutely adoring manipulation by any means available. (After several minutes thinking that sentence now looks better.) He may not have given GM Tarkin direct orders to use the Death Star that particular way, but he certainly had many opportunities to stop him. On the “Evil Emperor” scale from 1 to 10, he’s a Death Star.

Zahn has also show Thrawn to be a manipulator, and according to “Choices of One” he knew that there was a menace from further out than Chiss space, that neither the Empire nor the Republic knew about.

I’d have been much more impressed if JJ Abrams had managed to maintain continuity with the Expanded Universe, but I can understand the desire to just say “Not canon” and run with it.

This guy is a dick, but he’s totally right about Dave Rubin and Alex Jones’s views on free speech. The libertarian position (and indeed what US courts say) is that the First Amendment only means the government can’t punish you or enforce civil lawsuits against you for your speech. You can’t force people to listen to you or avoid moral judgment. You don’t have a right to use Twitter or Reddit, for example.

@Buttercup: Back when I was writing hiking accident reports for the Appalachian Mountain Club magazine, I wrote up an incident in the Adirondacks where a couple of young dudes got lost in winter and went down the side of Mt. Marcy away from civilization. They tried to start a fire with the only kindling they had — $150 in paper money. The “fire” smoldered for less than 15 minutes.

I had a hiking buddy who was an expert in building fires. (Unfortunately she died a couple of years ago.) She could get one going in the rain in winter with what she could find around wherever she happened to be. The dudes could have used her skills. There’s a message here about survival in the post apocalypse world …

Creators of Warhammer 40K creators intended the Imperium of Man to be a satire of fascism. They were influenced by left-anarchist SF and fantasy author Michael Moorcock, whose work often mocked the use of fascist themes in SF and fantasy. The Tau are a satire of authoritarian left-wing regimes like the Soviet Union.

See, I’ve heard this before…but I’ve never met someone who treated Warhammer like satire, ie, found it intentionally funny, like a Steve Jackson game or something. Virtually everyone I know who plays this game takes it and its mythos extremely seriously. And not just internet Nazis, but intelligent people who find it very deep that this universe is such a terrible place.

So if it’s satire, it’s unsuccessful satire, because nobody takes away from it what was apparently intended.

@Katz : I did not have find people who take the Imperium as a satire, but I have seen plenty of people taking it as a bleak dystopy.

That being said, it’s at least ten or fifteen years that the writers aren’t writing it as a satire. They tend to portray it as a “necessary evil” at best, which clearly it isn’t.

Ork are pretty much people genetically programmed to be authoritarian and enjoy it, that’s my turn off with them. Also, it’s a society that find a purpose for you, and your own goal are irrelevant in that. At least, most of them enjoy it, but weirdboyz, or anyone that a doc get his jand on, aren’t all that likely to like that.

Chaos is for the most part not too terrifying to me because they are inherently evil, not evil by choice. That being said, I find each of the chaos god to embody a specific way to be an abusive partner, and that’s more terrifying to me than the fact they send diseases and demons and what not. I prefer to die from the pox than suffer while thinking I deserve that suffering and that it will change one day.

Dalillama: Irate Social Engineer

@Katz

but intelligent people who find it very deep that this universe is such a terrible place.

This idea never fails to boggle my mind. The 40K universe is a terrible place because it’s a fucking wargame, so factions that aren’t part of an endless war are useless. In the grimdark futurem there is only war, because the setting is designed to allow an infinite number of battles between any two factions, because that’s why people buy all those fucking miniatures. I cannot fathom why people (including the creators ) would look for, let alone find or add, any kind of meaning at all to anything in that setting.

Ah, Warhammer and it’s future counterpart WH40K. Hell, in the first edition, there were rules which allow you to mix bit of them (but this was kind of exagerated, as a single laspistol with a S3 in 40K become a powerful S10 artifact in WHB), and as i was playing Chaos (even Chaos Dwarves), there was the fact that standard blisters of Chaos Warriors had some of them with more… technological features. They were also books for chaos which were more developped than current Army Books, with big mutation tables (which were also usable in the Pen and paper RPG too), better background, well, all in all better customization.
Many of this things had disappear now, and the light tendancy to be a dice bucket throw game has been turned up to eleven if what i have heard from recent editions are to be believed.

About the Squats. When i began WH40K, they were already on the sleeping slope (i began in a time where they were beginning to shift the IG from an “everybody has almost strictly the same uniform and stuff” to a “each planet has its specificities”. Was it a bad thing ? A good thing ? The variety of models was certainly attractive (and fucking expensive), but you were loosing the idea of strictly enforced military dictature and the anonimity of the individual that often goes with it). Althought, there were an smaller scale version of the game, called Epic 40K, where they were still existing. If i judge by the way they were, i think they were discarded because they were like the combination of two other armies : Imperial Gard and Orks. Standard Squats troups weared the same equipment as the IG (flak vest, lasrifle, and so on), they had huge vehicules (Train, Leviathans, a Dirigeable, …) and were following a stern and strict discipline. On the other side, the Squats Leaders were Squats in big armors (like the Nobz), they have units of fast vehicules (motos, trials, quads… Think Speed Cult for the Orks), some… variable effect weapons (the small atomic bomb which was quite… uncertain), some bloody close-combats troops (Berserkers, who were nothing less than some kind of exportation of Troll Slayers, applied to WH40K universe. And to note, in Epic, Chaos armies could have beastmen, trolls and minotaurs)… The only thing Squat did not have was psykers (like in Warhammer, with the no magician way). So, i think they find them too redundants. A pity, because they were fun to play too.

In term of violent and dystopian universe, there is also the Mutant Chronicles universe. It was a TRPG first, then it has a CCG version and then a Wargame version (and some Board games too).

Have a nice day.

I always wonder how these guys cope with the fact you’re often not marrying ‘a woman’ – you’re marrying a family.

Apparently, they cope by cooking up fantasies where you can adopt a homeless woman and breed her for family-less girls you can then train to be your perfect wife, instead of just marrying the normal way.

This is one of the things which pisses me off about so called ‘free speech’. Americans want to defend their first amendment rights, just so they can insult and troll people with impunity?! In the UK we have laws against hate speech, and several hate preachers / professional trolls have been banned from speaking here, or even deported. That includes PUA rape apologist Julian Le Blanc, who Theresa May banned from speaking here several years ago, plus Abu Hamza and Pastor Steven Anderson. The UK doesn’t have a problem with free speech per se, but has no first amendment so we don’t see it as a constitutional right to panda to these people. There are still controversial speakers on the circuit, but these are people who tread the fine line and do not cross over into ableist, homophobic, sexist and racist rhetoric. There are a few who do, they get in with the uni crowds, but very soon the protesters turn up and call them out.

I wonder about these guys, don’t they have sisters and cousins? They sure as hell have mothers. It’s hard to imagine the sheer hatred they have for women. Do they make exceptions for their immediate family? You would expect more matricide, boys killing the mothers who are ‘oppressing them’ by making them wash and tidy their rooms. This MRA wormhole / echo chamber must have tapped into something deep in their psyche and made them lose touch with reality. Is it porn addiction which makes them view women as disposable sex objects, or hatred for their mums?

@GrumpyOldSocialJusticeMangina – that sounds like a macabrely fascinating job. It’s easy enough to get into trouble on the AT even when you’re adequately prepared.

Besides kindling, paper currency could also substitute for toilet paper. Not that manospherians are suddenly going to discover hygiene after the deluge. As Roosh explained, they only grudgingly wipe their butts now because they think it’s part of the magic incantation that unlocks Poon Level.

When the apocalypse comes, may they perish quickly from diseases of the asshole.

I like the fact that English law recognises sometimes people are just asking to be punched. 🙂

If the appellant and her companions were (like the street preacher in Wise v. Dunning) being so provocative that someone in the crowd, without behaving wholly unreasonably, might be moved to violence he was entitled to ask them to stop and to arrest them if they would not.

The law has moved on a bit now in that you can’t be pre-emptively arrested for your own safety or to prevent a breach of the peace.

Yep. I’ve been angry about the second (speculative but still . . .) option for quite a while now. @#$*()@####!!!1!!!

In Thailand in the 90s I met some women who had run away from their ethnic minority group because they had given birth to twins – considered a terrible disgrace and more or less trafficking with evil. The community response was for the village to watch as the parents killed the babies, using the communal rice-pounder, and then tear their house down to the ground.

Rather than that, some couples, and more women, decided they didn’t want to be in that community any more. Some of them got their twins out with them but not all.

I was thinking also of the Classical Greek and Roman assumption that of course the father can have the child exposed if he feels like it.

Brrr, I love history but it’s a nightmare from which not everyone has awoken.

If an apocalypse should occur, your knowledge of herbs and such would be invaluable. You’d probably want to start a school for the rest of us handmaids.

Such schools have been reported! Italy in the 16th and 17th centuries was supposed to be a very, um, educated place.

(Though actually the practice of merchants making their money before they could marry, and then marrying a 15-year old straight from a convent, and if she died in childbirth marrying another 15-year old – and repeat – led to a fair few family feuds where the adult stepchildren were annoyed by their widowed stepmother being far their junior, but – due to local inheritance laws – taking control of the entire fortune for the rest of her life…)

As a descendant of (among other things) German Palatines who fought on the United Empire Loyalist side… yeah, I can see that. Yes, I could legally use the ‘U.E.’ title.

Of course, things get mixed up a lot later. My great-grandfather with the German surname was a priest in the Church of England. My great-grandfather with the Irish surname was also a priest… but he was Presbyterian. (And his first church was actually with the United Church of Canada, because few towns had enough Presbyterians to justify a church of their own, so the Presbyterians, Methodists, and a lot of the individual Congregationalist churches got together and formed their own ‘umbrella’ church so that together they could found churches out in smaller towns.)

In reference to the whole “That’s not me, that’s just the character I play on Youtube!” well…I think Kurt Vonnegut had something to say about that sort of thing:

“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.”

Or, to paraphrase one of our regulars (I don’t recall exactly who said it, but I know they’re a reg): “You can fuck a goat ‘ironically’ or ‘for the lulz’, but at the end of the day, you’re still a goat fucker.”

@Troubelle from a little while ago, about game development: I don’t know if you know this, but Unity is free! The full featured thing, you can even make games that you sell in it. I think there’s a cut off if you raise or make more than 100k$ in business revenue, but you’d have to actually look in to it.

Here’s the link to unity. There are lots of tutorials in it, as well as assets you could use as placeholders if you didn’t want to model your own.

I really enjoyed Night In The Woods, which is a video game made by people who didn’t even live in the same city. While it’s hard to work remotely like that, if there is a will, there is a way!

If you’d like to try your hand at smaller games, or if your main interest in making games is story, there are a few options to make Visual Novel style games. They don’t have to be just dating sims! The more I play bioware games, the more I realise that they are just super elaborate Visual Novels, really.

There’s Ren’Py, which has a pretty nice forum attached to it.

I wrote down more things to make visual novels, but that’s at home. Argh! Sorry! I think you could use twine. Yep, you can! And it can be simple, or get more complicated with variables and stuff if you’d like.

Here’s an interesting book on game design. It’s called ‘The Art of Game Design: Book of Lenses’.

One anecdote I really enjoyed from it was about how the author was making a Pirates of the Caribbean ride for Disney. One of the construction people came to him and said “Where do you want the air vent?” And he was like “Why do I care?” Then he paused, and was like “Have it blowing in their faces! It will reinforce the feeling of being on a ship.”

And I was like A) That’s really neat, using small things to reinforce the experience. Things people won’t even notice consciously, but will make a big impact on how they feel in the moment.

B) You have never been on a SAILING SHIP. The wind should be coming from behind. XD So be creative, but check your sources I guess haha.

Good luck doing whatever it is you want to do!

OH I have one more story here, that might help. I was working in a studio, and my department had some down time. (I’m not in gaming though, sorry.) Anyway, another department was SLAMMED, so I was volunteered to help out.

It was not a glorious department. Everybody is always on it, and they have to pull everything together while assets aren’t ready yet. No one knows what you do, so you can’t tell people and have them go “oh, that’s cool” even though you are *essential*.

But it was my job, so I did it, and did it the way I was told to do it. I took notes. I made a document that had the answers to questions I asked.

Later, when the fella who was heading up that department moved to a much cooler one, he needed help again. He asked me if I wanted to transfer over, since he knew I was a hard working and could follow instructions when doing things that were not fun.

So now I’m in a much cooler department at work! So even if you get a job that doesn’t directly tie into where you want to be, the connections might help you get there.

And if they won’t, the experience will be excellent material to make games out of.

SORRY TEEEEEL DEEEER. Hope this helps, Troubelle! You seem to have a good head on your shoulders, so I’m sure you’ll figure it all out.

Rather than that, some couples, and more women, decided they didn’t want to be in that community any more. Some of them got their twins out with them but not all.

You made me cry — but it’s better to know than to be ignorant.

I feel particularly upset about this because I have two brothers who are twins.
