Over on MGTOWforums.com, a fellow calling himself donttrustwomen has written a little, well, I don’t quite know what it is — an essay? a manifesto? a poem? — called “The Average Woman of Today.” I think it’s fairly clear from reading it that he has never taken a course in statistics. And has possibly never actually met a woman.
The average woman of today is in the club every weekend
The average woman of today has 10-20 “good guy friends”
The average woman of today has 150 guys in her phone
The average woman of today dresses scandalous
I don’t know about that, but I’m pretty sure the average woman (of a certain age) of today watches Notorious.
Our MGTOW statistician continues:
The average woman of today has 1-2 abortions on her resume
I don’t think that generally goes on the resume. Where would it even go? Under “hobbies?”
Also, according to the Guttmacher Institute, less than half of American women have abortions by the age of 45. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
The average woman of today has or had a STD
Well, this is true. It’s also true of the average man of today. Indeed, according to the CDC, Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is so common that nearly all sexually active people get it at some point in their life. Happily, most STDs are treatable. Also, use condoms!
The average woman of today cheats on her boyfriend or husband
Well, this is also true, at least according to the stats I found here, which suggest that a little more than half of women cheat on their partners at some point in their life. But guess what? Men cheat on their partners in similar numbers.
The average woman of today curses like a sailor
The average woman of today wears to much makeup
The average woman of today seeks attention whether negative or positive
Huh. For some reason the first person who pops to mind when I hear the phrase “attention seeking” is not a woman.
The average woman of today is on dating sites getting 100 msgs a day
Not exactly. There aren’t good numbers on this, but one online experiment found that while more conventionally attractive women could indeed get dozens of messages a day, an average woman might get all of three.
Also, have you actually seen the sorts of messages women on dating sites get? Who would even want to sort through a hundred of these a day?
The average woman of today expects you to pay her bills
The average woman of today expects you to raise and accept her child out of wedlock
Well, no. But if you do agree to, say, marry a woman with children, her kids do indeed come as part of the deal. Just as when a woman marries a divorced father with kids. You are of course free to not date women with children or indeed any women at all.
The average woman of today rarely brings any redeeming qualities to the table
I’m not really seeing how a regular commenter on MGTOWforums.com really has any reason to complain on this front.
The average woman of today is manipulative
The average woman of today is selfish
The average woman of today gets bored easily
I think you may actually be talking about kitties here, not women. But kitties are adorable, so we forgive them.
The average woman of today is on facebook, twitter, instagram feeding her ego through likes and followers
Yeah, no men ever do that.
The average woman of today would be stoned and called a harlot 3,000 years ago
The average woman of today rides the cock carousel
The average woman of today gives it up on the first night
Why does it make these guys so angry that there are women out there who enjoy having sex with men?
The average woman of today is unappreciative
Of dudes on the internet who hate her?
The average woman of today has lewd photos or videos circulating on the internet
Despite the astounding number of lewd pictures and videos online, I suspect that the percentage of women who’ve appeared in them is still relatively small. I wonder, though, how the number of women who’ve put nude or “lewd” pics of themselves on the internet compares to the number of guys who’ve sent dick pics to willing or unwilling recipients?
The average woman of today follows hypergamy
“Hypergamy,” in the traditional sense of “marrying upward” is actually on the decline, as women move in greater numbers into better paying jobs. “Doctors used to marry nurses,” Katrin Bennhold observes in a piece on the subject in the New York Times. “Now doctors marry doctors.”
The average woman of today files for divorce 70 percent of the time
Donttrustwomen seems to be confusing a couple of different statistics here. Yes, when couples divorce, the woman is more likely to be the one to file for divorce — though this does not necessarily imply that she’s the one responsible for breaking up the marriage. But 70% of marriages don’t end in divorce. Heck, the old saw about 50% of marriages ending in divorce is a myth; the correct percentage may be as low as 30.
The average woman of today looks for a starter husband
The average woman of today can’t tell the difference between a guy who cares about them and a guy who just wants them for sex
The average woman of today is unfit to marry or even call a girlfriend.
Keep telling yourself all this, dude. It’s in everybody’s best interests for you, personally, to continue to go your own way. Aren’t you guys getting an island, or something?
