562: Broken Monogamy

What happens to a society with a surplus of young men who are convinced that they have no hope of ever finding a wife and starting a family? It ain't pretty. KMO talks with First, the author of Black Pill Documentary – Online Dating 2020 and Beyond: An Exercise in Futility.

    The post-conversation wrap up for this episode was extremely well reasoned, which is all the more so impressive given the controversial nature of the subject.

    Anyone who has even a superficial understanding of what an “incel” is understands the radioactivity of that label. The simplest and safest course of action is to reject it outright.

    You have done the exact opposite an emerged untarnished and shed some much needed light into that darkest of internet corners. Well done!

      This podcast came about because First, my guest in this episode, has been leaving thoughtful comments on my YouTube videos for months. When I learned that he had made a documentary, I knew he’d be a good guest.

      Also, looking back on my 20s, it seems like I was having a lot of sex, but I know that there were long dry periods, and I remember what a source of mental and emotional torment that was, though I never thought that I would remain a perpetual virgin, so my frustration never pushed into hopelessness. Straight, white, young men have become the undeserving whipping boys of the contemporary scene. It’s not easy being young, regardless of one’s ethnicity and sexual orientation. They have my sympathy and consideration.

    What a great pod cast. While I had heard of the problems of young men finding mates and what a meat grinder the dating scene was, I don’t think I have heard it articulated as well as First did. Great job. It has given me lots to think about.
