A feminist, a PUA, a MRA, a MGTOW, a Mangina, a White Knight, and a natural Alpha Male are sitting in a bar drinking. Suddenly, a disheveled young waif of a woman stumbles in and asks for help.
The White Knight immediately gives her the last four $1 bills in his tattered wallet and leaves the bar to go back to work to earn for her whatever resources and provisioning she might need.
The Mangina furiously blogs about (1) how the bastardly White Knight with a tiny dick failed to completely satisfy the waif, (2) how the patriarchy brought her to such a sorry state, and (3), how she would have been so much better off clinging to him, because he, the Ultimate Mangina, mocks misogynists, and thus, her dainty and grateful surrender to his sausage fingers is his just reward.
The PUA accesses her fuckability, availablily, and hotness, and then moves on to more suitable bedmates.
The MGTOW glances up, recognizes the trap, and returns to his drink – Templeton Rye Whiskey, with 2 ice cubes, half consumed.
The MRA reviews extensive historical and evolutionary biological evidence, weighs both the dangers and benefits of a man offering assistance to a woman in need and then, glues up a poster tangentially related to the situation at hand.
The feminist blames the men in the bar (and indeed, everywhere) for her/their plight, and advises her to dress even sluttier than she is because if she were to take any responsibility for her situation, whatever the hell it might be, she would be blaming the victim, and that is. like. BAD.
The Alpha male leaves the bar with the waif long before any of the others even know what is happening. She marries him, bears him 3 kids, then files for divorce, falsely accusing him of rape, child abuse, etc; he dies a pauper while being raped in prison.
The waif moves on to the next bar.
And that is what the Bibo Sez.
Bless you, BiboSez.
Now notice how this joke doesn’t turn on the woman’s behavior, but on the men’s reactions, and how those reactions reflect a gender system.
The joke is not making fun of one individual woman’s behavior. There will always be problematic individuals and that doesn’t make for much of a joke. The joke is about a cultural system of expectations and rindividuals’ behavior as conditioned by those expectations. The joke is about men’s problematic gendered behavior, and not just the guys in the bar, but the entire cultural and legal system that incentivizes the waif’s dysfuntional behavior and the men’s dysfuntional responses.
