People follow incentives.
What percent of women obtain non-stem degrees at cost $100k debt during peak fertility? What is female tax vs interest contribution? What percent of tax revenues to women consume vs men? And what percent of tax revenue do women contribute vs men? (I know.)
You can’t use women’s endless demand for hyperconsumption (esp of attention) as vehicles for academic, commercial, and interest revenue, and expect them to bear the same costs out of civic ‘duty’ (as men do for sex). Any more than men military without offer of the franchise.
Women’s hyperconsumption and hypergamy evolved for the purpose of nesting for children, and competing with other women. If you direct that hyperconsumption to other ends, you will get the present result. And hyper-consumptive women are far better laborers for revenue extraction.
Add moral relativism, and non-conformity, and multiculturalism, and moral persuasion no longer functions as incentives, since it no longer conveys status or attention, on one and, and loss of status and attention on the other.
Women have no incentive to bear children.
We forget that we domesticated both men AND women’s instincts with property, meritocracy, and monogamy. And we domesticated men’s violence, and women’s undermining with equal fervor until giving the franchise without demonstrating ability.
All answers in economics and social science are rather obvious if you work in incentives instead of shallow moralizing. Use evolutionary demand, specialization, cognitive and emotional differences, not pretense of equality. The century of pseudoscience and sophism is at a close.
