Female Captive Synd… I mean, Stockholm Syndrome

On the subject of so-called Stockholm Syndrome – really, the correct term is female captive syndrome – conventional discourse has usually been coy about the captives’ sex as a relevant aspect. I once did a Net search for some terms like Stockholm Syndrome, gender breakdown, etc., and came up with nothing. It really is astonishing how much our broader culture is invested in denial about female nature. This has only started to change recently, and you have to go looking for it to find it.

Here are some links, with varying degrees of explicitness about the gendered nature of the phenomenon:

(1) On the original Stockholm Syndrome case, this link doesn’t mention the sex of the captives for the first couple of paragraphs, and never says anything about it, except mentioning, eventually, that one captive was named Kristin:

Olofsson… became friendly with one of the hostages, Kristin Ehnemark; they met occasionally and even their families became friends.

Another notorious case of Stockholm Syndrome is that of millionaire heiress Patty Hearst, who… was kidnapped from her apartment in Berkeley, California by a left-wing urban guerrilla group calling itself the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA). On April 3 Hearst announced on an audiotape that she had joined the SLA under the pseudonym of ‘Tania’, and on April 15 she was photographed wielding an M1 carbine while robbing a bank in San Francisco.

Eventually the author does get around to saying,

… Most of human history has been played out in hunter-gatherer societies in which abductions, particularly of women and their dependent children, must have been a very common occurrence. Thus, it is possible to envisage that the capture-bonding psychological response exhibited by Kristin Ehnemark, Patty Hearst, and countless others is not just an ego defense, but also an adaptive trait that promotes survival in times of war and strife.

(2) An acknowledgement of the peculiarly female nature of Stockholm Syndrome in the academic literature. None of it is surprising to a red-pilled person – it’s just common-sense evolutionary game theory – but it’s nice to see the level of the discussion rising in academia:

Through the ages, women have suffered greatly because of wars. [Unlike defeated men, who are more likely to have been slaughtered.] Consequently, to protect themselves and their offspring, our female ancestors may have evolved survival strategies specific to problems posed by warfare, says Michelle Scalise Sugiyama of the University of Oregon…

Scalise Sugiyama believes that ancestral women may have developed certain strategies to increase their odds of survival and their ability to manage their reproduction in the face of warfare… The so-called Stockholm Syndrome, in which hostages bond with their captors, could have ancestral roots… as a way to help captives identify and ultimately integrate with enemy groups. This then motivates acceptance of the situation and reduces attempts to resist the captor — which may ultimately increase a woman’s chances of survival.

“Lethal raiding has recurrently imposed fitness costs on women. Female cognitive design bears reexamination in terms of the motivational and decision-making mechanisms that may have evolved in response to them,” says Scalise Sugiyama.

(3) This one has 15 examples of Stockholm Syndrome. Notably, only two of them involve male captives, and about one of those they say, “There is some debate as to whether Shawn Hornbeck suffered from Stockholm Syndrome, but we’ll lay out the facts and allow you to judge.” Warning: some of the examples are disgusting, e.g., involving incest. And a couple are misplaced, for example, it’s not really Stockholm Syndrome when the victim is abducted at a couple of days old and believes her captors to be her actual family. Still, some interesting examples.

(4) Rational Male: War Brides.

The Rational Male blogger, “Rollo Tomassi,” dances around the evo psych of the topic in a way that seems surprising, for a red-pilled man, when you first encounter it. You have to read between the lines. The reason for this, as I recall, is that his wife knows about his blog, and so he’s elliptical about some topics, for the sake of domestic tranquility. (To what extent that should be a consideration for a red-pilled dude is another post.)

Miscellany 7: Murder by Miscellany

1) Washington DC is the psychopath capital of America:
https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/06/23/washington-dc-the-psychopath-capital-of-america-218892


2) POLITICAL ORGASM! Anthony Kennedy to retire from the Supreme Court at end of July.

BOOOOOOOOM. Did you left-wing assholes enjoy the trannies-in-your-daughter’s-school-bathroom/ bake-that-gay-wedding-cake-you-fascist/ all-whites-are-racist party of the last couple of decades? Was it worth it? Was it worth enraging traditional America so that we put Trump into the White House?

Buh-bye. It was not nice knowing you.

Kennedy’s retirement, left-wing salt edition:

The failing New York Times:

If the last few days hadn’t been dispiriting enough… Wednesday afternoon brought the coup de grâce.

Everyone knew it was coming sooner than later, but Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, which he announced in a letter released hours after the court had issued its final rulings of the term, is still crushing. It sends a stark message to the tens of millions of Americans… the court is very likely to lock in an unmoderated, hard-right majority for the rest of most of our lives.

It is a dark moment in the history of the court and the nation, and it’s about to get a lot darker.

LOL. And this is the New York Times, which is supposed to be the nation’s “serious” left-wing voice.


3) Identity politics gives it to white Dems, good and hard. One prominent example: Latin-American woman and self-described socialist wins Dem primary from presumptive House Dem leader, who was a 56-year-old white man:

The Washington Post (forgot the link, no loss):

In her shocking primary upset of Nancy Pelosi’s heir apparent, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just did Democrats a big favor… progressive, young, female and nonwhite. It is no accident that Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old Latina, is all four.

A majority of House Democrats are either women, people of color or gay…

Crowley lost because of the changing demographics in his district, which had been redrawn considerably after 2010 and is now only 18 percent white…

And Pat Buchanan at The American Conservative:

…the crushing defeat of 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley, who had aspired to succeed Pelosi and become speaker of the House… Ocasio-Cortez ran as a Latina, a person of color, a millennial and militant socialist who lived in her district, and painted Crowley as a white male with lots of PAC money…

Columnist Dana Milbank, who sees it as progress, writes, “A majority of House Democrats are … women, people of color or gay.”

These rising forces in the Democratic coalition are looking to bury the Democratic Party of yesterday, where white males and older ethnic groups—Irish, Italians, Poles and Jews—were dominant.

…The new demography of the Democratic Party brought about the defeat of Crowley. A majority white district when he first ran, the Bronx-Queens district he now represents is only one-sixth white.

The Irish and Italians have moved out or passed on. And Archie Bunker? He rests in peace in Calvary Cemetery. Like his party.

The bill is starting to come due to the white left for their choice to rely on identity politics. As I’ve said before, white leftists are so unbelievably stupid that they actually thought that minorities thirst to be ruled by white leftists. Ah, no. They voted for white leftists when the demographics of the USA were such that the only realistic choices were white lefties or white righties. Now they have the choice of voting for their own ethnic groups.

As Spinoza said: To understand infinity, contemplate the extent of [left-wing] stupidity.


4) Now that summer’s here, the fascist “anti-fascists” are getting uppity again. Luckily, sane people in Portland kicked antifa ass a couple of days ago.

The link also includes a bonus link to video of one Antifa fuckhead getting knocked out with one punch, sweet!

False Rape Accusation Culture

UPDATE: Welcome Jim readers! I had to notice when my “daily views” graph was forced to re-scale its vertical axis.


Recently a Less Wronger/ Slate Star Codex/ Bay Area “rationalist” killed herself.

(Via Jim’s Blog.)

This woman was a horribly evil and insane person who made frequent – apparently almost incessant – false accusations of rape and sexual assault and whatnot about every man who was in the same time zone as her. If you follow the links, you’ll see that several men stopped attending “rationalist” meet-ups in her area on the mere possibility that she’d be there.

Actually that “rationalist” community had been, as per standard SJW practice, taken over by SJWs, who killed it and wore its skin as a skinsuit.

Due to this, the community had no way to deal with this person who was a steaming cauldron of pure poison. Indeed, they couldn’t even call her what she was or address the problem, since the SJW position is that there is not, and never can be, any such thing as a false accusation of sexual assault. Oh, officially that’s not the position, but really, of course, it is.

Thus there was no way to deal with the problem, especially for the men, except by leaving the community.

It’s especially hilarious that the community that literally invented the phrase “evaporative cooling” as it applies to social situations couldn’t see, or name, what was going on there. So much for the “rationalist” toolkit.

At the second link above, the blogger notes that, by her own admission in her suicide note, as well as from other facts about the situation, it is obvious that part of the problem was this nearing-40 woman’s inability to attract the kind of man she wanted. That is, hard alpha.

This affords me an opportunity to climb up on my soapbox on this topic:

So many modern women are so completely insane because the biological hardware in their heads, and their socially-installed software, are telling them exact opposite things. Obviously this is guaranteed to make them miserable.

Female neural hardware, which is many millions of years old, is basically telling them, “Find a strong male who appears physically and emotionally capable of ravaging you, and is tough enough and/or socially dominant enough to get away with it.” If this is an exaggeration, it’s not much of one. Modern SJW/feminist software, which is insane, is telling them the exact opposite of this, that they want a deferential nice guy who will buy them a Maserati before presuming to ask them out on a date, and will, before every sexual move, politely ask, e.g., “May I now kiss your lips? May I now kiss your neck? By the way, girls rule! May I now fondle your left buttock?” Etc. All this is consciously designed by feminists to kill any speck of arousal in anyone.

If the man is aggressive, the feminist software screams “He’s oppressing you!” If he’s a nice guy, the biological hardware screams, “This is a weak male! Avoid mating with him at all costs!”

Given all this, it is no surprise that so many of our women are insane. It is a testament to the power of biology that, in this cultural environment, most of them are still sane. Of course, that’s to be expected; most women see through the ridiculous feminist bullshit, thank God, because it’s so flagrantly idiotic.

Real progress will have been made, and women and men will be much happier, when we’ve changed the social software so that it affirms and complements the hardware, instead of fighting it every moment at every step.

A Strangely Good Sign

The Deep State is desperately trying to impeach Trump and kill other Republicans. For examples, the 97 GOP House members on the train that hit the garbage truck, and the Katie Arrington crash from a few days ago.

This is very bad, obviously.

But it’s also a good sign because it shows how desperate they are. They would not be going this far out on the tree limb otherwise.

In particular: It gives me hope that they had an unalterable timetable for their takeover attempt which President Trump may permanently disrupt.

That is, their timetable is not the sort of thing that you can push the pause button on, let go dormant for some number of years, then re-start.

Otherwise, there’s no explanation for their hate, rage, terror, and desperation. After all, if they had no particular timetable, they could just wait.

Trump will have either four or eight years. But they are terrified at the very idea of just four years! He could permanently kill their plans. They themselves, by their behavior, reveal that they think so.

So yes, the impeachment attempt and the attempted murders are very bad, of course.

Yet they are also a sign that things are getting better.

Netflix Five-Second Rule

Netflix Bans Employees from Looking at Each Other for More Than Five Seconds

May favorite aspect of this: How is anyone going to enforce it?

Ashley: Bob was looking at me for six seconds!

Boss: How do you know?

Ashley: Because I was looking right at him the whole ti- uh, never mind.

Another Netflix rule: “Don’t flirt.” Ah, leftism. Smell the sanity!

I think this is one of the reasons that every society in the history of the world, before western society starting several decades ago, had segregated sexes in everyday life. The problem with men and women in close association in everyday settings is that women are so eager to gain access to alpha males, and so determined to prevent any and all contact with beta males, that they destroy the functioning of the organization with insane rules designed to accomplish those things.

Think about how bad it has gotten in only half a century – this stuff didn’t even start until feminism got traction in the late 1960s – and extrapolate into the future. If this sort of dysfunctionality were allowed to progress unhindered, it would destroy the ability of groups of people to get things done.

Notice that we do see mingling of the two sexes in all societies in situations in which nothing has to get done. E.g., you take an Anthropology class, you see a video of everyone – boys, girls, women, men – sitting around a fire singing folk songs or whatever. But that’s because there is no particular task which must be accomplished. As soon as shit gets real, e.g. food acquisition – hunting meat or gathering plants – boom, sex division pops up.

Thus, I suspect gender mixing has been tried in many times and places in the past, and either been squelched with a return to sex-segregation, or caused the destruction of societies that didn’t squelch it. That’s why we don’t see mixed-sex groups in general, in veritably all societies in human history.

We Must Protect Children, By Which We Mean 35-Year-Olds!

One of the recent Republican immigration proposals: We need to protect children!

Defined as everyone up to 36 years old!

Think I’m kidding?

Try USA Today:

On one of the most contentious issues, the draft proposal would allow an estimated 1.8 million “Dreamers” to apply for “nonimmigrant status”– essentially a conditional legal visa – if they meet certain conditions. They must, for example, have a high school diploma or GED and must be under 36 years of age as of June 15.

Just in case you were wondering why this blog has a “GOP traitors” tag.
