Ethnocentrism, Chinese Nationalist Maiden, Sex Strike

In der news.

Read this.

Prof. Dutton tries to explain the relatively low ethnocentrism of whites. One theory is that we have an evolutionary strategy based on producing geniuses. Exceptional people make breakthroughs that advance the interests of the group, but the type of environment that produces and supports such people is one of low conformity. This would decrease ethnocentrism. 

As he does in his earlier book, At Our Wits’ End, Prof. Dutton also argues that social changes connected with the Industrial Revolution have meant far less natural selection in industrialized populations since then. For most of history, children with maladaptive traits usually died, but now they often survive. This means harmful mutations stay in the gene pool. 

Prof. Dutton argues that ethnocentrism benefits groups in the struggle for survival, so natural selection has generally promoted it, whereas maladaptive attitudes such as very low ethnocentrism are the product of mutations. Mental and physical abnormalities due to genetic mutations are often found together, so that as the population is increasingly burdened with mutations affecting physical health, it may also be afflicted with reduced ethnocentrism, which reduces a population’s chances for long-term survival.

Is there an inverse relationship between degrees of ethnocentrism and the levels of such deleterious mutations?  This could be assayed. I avoid making comments about intra-European possibilities here, but the failures of Der Movement’s affirmative action “leadership” raises possibilities.

By the way, will Amren review Dutton’s book on Rushton?  Inquiring minds want to know.

Chinese Nationalist Maiden • 20 hours ago

I have witnessed for a long time that Whites are less ethnocentric than other races…

Is that why Whites let the likes of you live in their nations and infest their “pro-White” websites?

…and that is why I consistently try to increase White ethnocentrism.

By living in their nations.

I am not scared of White ethnocentrism. 

Really?  Even when your yellow rear end is kicked back to Hepatitis Land?

I agree with Kevin Macdonald’s view that Whites are unusually altruistic, which explains their weirdly low ethnocentrism. 

Exemplified by your presence at Amren.

However, I really hope Whites wake up soon because it is not good for the future of humanity if this planet becomes flooded with low-IQ peoples as low-fertility, high-IQ races, namely Whites and East Asians, decline. 

IQ, IQ, Asians have high, high IQ!  Asians are really declining, eh?  There are hundreds of millions more Chinese alone (a single Asian ethnic group) than there are all Whites combined, worldwide. Asians are in such “decline” that their excess population floods into White nations.

Currently, the East Asian demographic decline is inevitable due to low fertility. 

And if China loses half-a-billion people they’ll be down to where the entire White race is right now.

Together with Whites, we will be a dwindling minority in centuries to come…

Lie.

…and therefore we need a strategy for high-IQ peoples.

Whites enslaved to Asian interests.

However, idiots like Xi Jinping make sound racial thinking nigh to impossible in China…

Which is why the Chinese are fiercely nationalistic and are practicing eugenics.

…whilst the West is not being helped either by the liberals and (((rulers))) who wish for White genocide.

If the subtle sexual bait is not enough, there’s a (((little pretense))) of anti-Jewishness to whet Nutzi appetites.  Just like that Japatrix from Majority Rights.  It’s as if they are reading off the same script…which is probably the case.

Retarded wopess just confirmed to the world that all women are basically whores who use sex to control men.

MGTOW, my friends, MGTOW.

Those deceptive yeastbuckets.

More MGTOW.

Questions for Eric Kaufmann

Questions.

Read here.

…the second meaning of whiteshift is this longer-term one. You’re going to get this very rapidly rising mixed-race population that will become the majority and will take over the consciousness, memories, and myths of that current ethnic majority.

Questions: What if Whites do not want to be replaced by “this very rapidly rising mixed-race population that will become the majority?”  What if they do not want to “expand Whiteness” to include people who are, by definition as “mixed-race,” not White?  What if they want to preserve themselves, and their genetic interests, as they are today?  What is wrong with that?  Other than your own preferences, of course.

Like the Jews, for example, have different DNA in them.

Questions: Why do you lie about this?  Yes, there are minor groups like Ethiopian, South Asian, and Chinese Jews that do indeed “have different DNA in them.”  But the major Jewish groups are quite similar, genetically, with similar lineages.  What’s your lineage, by the way?

There’s no question whites are advantaged economically, politically.

Questions: If Whites are so “advantaged” economically, what about Jews and Asians? You agree that Whites are being demographically replaced. You agree that Whites, unlike other groups, are not being allowed to express and defend their racial interests.  Thus, how are they really “advantaged” politically?

For example, a lot of those individual measures, like I don’t want my kid marrying an African-American, or I’m against interracial marriage, or I don’t want a black boss, in the survey data, it’s very low now. It’s not perfect. It will take a little bit more time before we get rid of it entirely.

Questions: Why do you define perfection by getting rid of these attitudes?  Aren’t you displaying your hidden anti-White biases by defining perfection in terms of White dispossession and White liberalism?

However, I don’t say that in every case the mainstream parties should go there. Like George Wallace, for example, on segregation.

Question: Why?

General question: Isn’t your book all about just slowing down White dispossession so as to make it more palatable to Whites, to accommodate them to their own demise?

Secondary question: Given Suvorov’s Law of History, don’t you understand that your “throw them a bone” strategy may backfire against your leftist interests?

Anatomy of Error

A brief analysis.

I read this book long ago, when it first came out; it is very good, is recommended.  

What are some major errors in Der Movement?  What is the “anatomy of error” in (American) White racial activism?

Among many – reversing the strategic order of how things should be done.  Prudence dictates that you first thoroughly prepare for an action, build the required infrastructure, prepare for the enemy’s response and for other contingencies, and then you proceed.

Thus, first, you build an infrastructure, and then you go public with your rallies, protests, actions, and so forth.  If you want to provoke the System, you had better be prepared for the System’s reaction. What the “movement” does instead is have their rallies and protests and public meetings and violent outbursts with zero infrastructure there for support – zero legal teams, zero media structures, zero elected officials who are true fellow travelers, zero integration in the local community, zero economic self-sufficiency, zero strategy, and zero planning.

Ironically, all the representatives of big-brained European ethnies that are celebrated in the “movement” for their foresight and discipline behave worse than the most incompetent, undisciplined, and hare-brained gesticulating swarthoid.  Superiority is not a birthright, it has to be earned. And Der Movement and its failed leaders have earned nothing.

Let’s move on.  What can be done for young White men frustrated with the System, despairing of a pathetically failed “movement,” and tempted to ruin their lives by lashing out with sporadic violence against an entrenched overpowering System?

Besides taking my advice to concentrate on their own selves and well-being over all else – we need quality men, not broken boys – they need to be able to fit into a real movement that can give them a sense of purpose in an atmosphere of competence and manly collegiality (the latter of which is not effete Bronyism or homosexuals “flirting” with “cute” activists at “extreme vetted” meetings). I’ve long been an advocate of a Legionary-type structure, which would of course necessitate a real leadership and a real competence beyond that currently available in Der Movement.

For such an activity, real vetting and security are required.  Now, I’m not going to discuss what could and should constitute such vetting on a public forum, but I will give two examples of what such vetting should not be.  “Are you Swedish?” is insufficient as “extreme vetting.”  Having a Skype conversation in which you congratulate a candidate (in reality, an infiltrator) on their Northwest European heritage, while mocking Brooklyn Italian-Americans, also does not meet the standards of effective vetting and security.

It’s interesting, but in my analog, meat-space, IRL WN 1.0 days, there were zero instances (insofar as I am aware) of private meetings being infiltrated.  Now, public meetings were another story, operational security there was sub-standard, but at least the physical security was sound, so the outcome of public meeting infiltration was a bit of snooping (which admittedly was bad) and not violence.  But the private meetings were sound – thus, the WN 1.0 crowd, for all their faults, were a step ahead of WN 2.0. Thus, the lack of proper operational security is a major error of Der Movement today, and is in fact part of the infrastructure problem cited at the beginning of this post, since “opsec” is one of the most fundamental pillars upon which to build everything that follows.

Let’s consider the problem of freakishness and silliness. There are of course many divisions within the “movement.” Pan-Europeanism vs. ethnonationalism, pan-Europeanism vs. Nordicism, vanguardism vs .mainstreaming, Christianity vs. anti-Christians, ethnic fetishists and those who oppose them, etc. Readers know I have strong views on these topics that often clash with established “movement” dogma. But even when I oppose that dogma, at least I can understand it, I can see the points of the other side, and it is something within the realm of rational possibility.  It can be in some ways defensible through reasoned argument, even if I disagree ad make my own reasoned arguments against the memes I oppose.

However, when observing the current WN 2.0 fiasco, things occur that are so outlandish that I simply cannot understand how any ostensibly intelligent, sane, and rational activist can promote any of it. Yang Gang? Tulsi Coconut? The years of slavish Trump worship? Bronyism – My Little Pony, for godssakes!  I’m at a loss, completely at a loss.  WN 1.0 was a disaster, sure, but it was a disaster mitigated at least by an aura of seriousness, or at least semi-seriousness.  What we have now is like a bad comedy routine.

Thus, another constant error of the “movement” is the promotion of freakishness that has no direct connection whatsoever to racialism. For example, it is because of anti-science raving retards like this that we have a growing measles problem in the US. Some microbes are indeed just waiting for you.  Measles has a very high infectivity rate; if you are exposed and not immune, your probability of illness is close to 100%.  You can of course argue that filthy scum not getting their children vaccinated – and many of these in the current outbreak are Ultra-Orthodox Jews – is a sign of weakness (in this case mental), and I’ll agree with that. Leave it up to morons like “Stronza” and we would still have smallpox epidemics and folks in iron lungs from polio.  Pepe!  Kek!  Traditionalism!  We can bury those dead five year olds snug in our hobbit holes!

This completely superfluous stupidity damages the image of racialism to both the general public and to the science and technics types that we need as one component of our arsenal of human material. I’m not surprised that the affirmative action “leadership” doesn’t know any better. 

Coming full circle, we can mention another fundamental flaw of Der Movement, on par with reversing the order of organization (which should come first) and action (which should come after) – the inability to clearly and decisively define an ingroup. This is something I’ve written about often. The defining characteristic of any group is the decision of who is in and who is out.  Without a clearly defined and stable boundary of membership, there is no group.  That boundary needs to be decided BEFORE the group is formed, before people are recruited and action is taken. If there are going to be any changes in the composition of the group (changes which should be rare in any case), it always should be in the direction of greater inclusion – and if current members of the group object to that inclusion then they can voluntarily leave – freedom of association – and form their own groups with their own boundaries. But you cannot start redefining your ingroup for the purposes of exclusion after the fact, after people have been members for months or years (or even decades), investing their time, effort, money – their blood, sweat, and tears – their lives, for the group.  That’s not the time to tell them – “hey, we’ve reconsidered, you’re not part of the ingroup after all.”  

You’d think things like that should be obvious to the high born honorable superior big-brained heroic figures of Der Movement, but apparently not.

(Jewish) Crime and (White) Punishment

Food for thought.

Fyodor Dostoevsky was very prescient. When reading the excerpt below consider that the plague in question could be thought of as Marxism broadly defined – not only traditional Marxism, but Cultural Marxism, Psychological Marxism (Freud, Frankfurt School),  Racial Marxism, every social infection and perversion that has been propagated by a certain Levantine (Asia) tribe (microbes, and the memes are microbes as well) infecting the White race (Europe and then the world). Fyodor the Christian would no doubt be offended by my considering Christianity as one of the egalitarian Marxian creeds emanating from Asia to infect European Man.

Excerpt from the epilogue of Crime and Punishment.  Emphasis added:

He dreamt that the whole world was condemned to a terrible new strange plague that had come to Europe from the depths of Asia. All were to be destroyed except a very few chosen. Some new sorts of microbes were attacking the bodies of men, but these microbes were endowed with intelligence and will. Men attacked by them became at once mad and furious. But never had men considered themselves so intellectual and so completely in possession of the truth as these sufferers, never had they considered their decisions, their scientific conclusions, their moral convictions so infallible. Whole villages, whole towns and peoples went mad from the infection. All were excited and did not understand one another. Each thought that he alone had the truth and was wretched looking at the others, beat himself on the breast, wept, and wrung his hands. They did not know how to judge and could not agree what to consider evil and what good; they did not know whom to blame, whom to justify. Men killed each other in a sort of senseless spite. They gathered together in armies against one another, but even on the march the armies would begin attacking each other, the ranks would be broken and the soldiers would fall on each other, stabbing and cutting, biting and devouring each other. The alarm bell was ringing all day long in the towns; men rushed together, but why they were summoned and who was summoning them no one knew. The most ordinary trades were abandoned, because everyone proposed his own ideas, his own improvements, and they could not agree. The land too was abandoned. Men met in groups, agreed on something, swore to keep together, but at once began on something quite different from what they had proposed. They accused one another, fought and killed each other. There were conflagrations and famine. All men and all things were involved in destruction. The plague spread and moved further and further. Only a few men could be saved in the whole world. They were a pure chosen people, destined to found a new race and a new life, to renew and purify the earth, but no one had seen these men, no one had heard their words and their voices.

The new pure chosen people – ethnocentric White nationalists?

.. but no one had seen these men, no one had heard their words and their voices.

Maybe because they were censored and deplatformed?

Odds and Ends

Observations.

On the one hand, White nationalists are routinely mocked as follows – “They’re a bunch of losers who identify with White historical accomplishments because they have no personal accomplishments of their own.” On the other hand, we as a nation enthusiastically celebrate “Black History Month,” and smile benignly as some inarticulate Negro takes pride in the fact that Tyrone Carjacker invented a new brand of malt liquor. Inconsistent much?

Dostoevsky certainly was familiar with Jews and Jewish phenotypes.  We find the following in his classic Crime and Punishment:

His face wore that perpetual look of peevish dejection, which is sourly printed on all faces of Jewish race without exception.

I’m sure everyone knows the look to which he refers – consider Anthony Weiner or Ruth Bader Ginsburg as examples. Or one can envision the great Professor Hart cursing at David Duke as another example of the phenotypic trend in question.

Behold the female: The Inventor!

Holmes, now 35, and Theranos’s former chief operating officer, Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani, have a pending criminal fraud case against them in a federal court in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley. If prosecutors have their way, the two may go to prison over charges that they defrauded investors, doctors, and patients.

Agency, agency!  Remember – we got to get girls interested in STEM careers!  Who knows what we are missing out on!  And we need more South Asian cognitive elitists as well!

I admit to feeling some degree of schadenfreude over the collapse of Theranos.  Even some rightist, anti-feminist women I know were getting all excited over Holmes, and now I get to rub their faces in it.  Petty and malicious? Well, after all, “movement leaders” have called me “crazy and bitter,” so it all fits.

Of course, “there is no such thing as race;” and “we are all biologically, genetically the same,” and yet we need “diversity” in genetics studies because…genetic differences in human populations (that just happen to track most closely with race).  But don’t you get any nasty ideas that you can explain health disparities by these differences, no sir, it’s all due to dat dere “racism.”

Couple thoughts on Spencer
1. Who else called Trump better?

Answer: Ted Sallis. When Spencer was yelling “Hail Trump!,” I was writing (for months by that time) that Trump was a fraud, a buffoon, a race cuck, a huckster.  The new revisionist history – “Spencer was right about Trump all along.”  No, he wasn’t.

As bad as Pierce was, he was still a whole lot better than the “leaders” we have today.  Pierce – who had a physics PhD and briefly worked in academia and in industry before becoming a full-time activist – at least had some degree of intellectual heft and gravitas.  What we have today is nothing more than a bad joke.

Speaking of jokes, while I identify more with Rorschach in The Watchmen, I can’t disagree with The Comedian – “It’s all a joke.” Indeed it is.  Can anyone take our current society seriously?  The pathetic, mewling, weak White race seriously?  Der Movement seriously?

The Yang Problem and Other Issues

In der news.

This is affirmative action on display.  Sigh…the point is not that there are “strings attached” if an activist receives his $1000 per month handout (but after all the recent deplatforming, and the direction this country is going in, you’d be foolish to think that the UBI would never be cut off to public activists). The point is that Yang’s plan is meant to buy off White anger (to the extent that this anger exists or will exist in the future) over their dispossession. The point is not that Yang’s plan poses a danger to activists, but instead that his plan is a danger to the ability of activists to recruit from the White masses The point is, a la Salter, that we want multiculturalism NOT to work, not make it work more smoothly through “a minority-majority America is A-OK as long as some of my tax money is funneled back to me (and to the endless stream of invaders Yang supports) via UBI.”

“Movement” leaders are as “deep” as a piece of tissue cut by a microtome.

Of course, it has crossed my mind that the immature frathouse boys are merely trolling us, that it is just more Beavis-and-Butthead “lulzing.”

Others think so:

Gotta say, I was bewildered and disappointed by all the dissident right support for Yang. After all, the guy is a fairly standard leftist and anti-white on all the racial issues. But now I see it is (mostly) a joke/meme and have learned to laugh at it (a bit).

Then again, maybe not.  Remarkable.  Guess what, Richie, back in 2016, Trump was “worthy of support” because he was going to build dat dere wall, and he was possibly going to crack down on “legal” immigration as well.  Wha’ happen?

Either way, it is bad.  These guys are either demented as regards judgment or they are imbecilic immature idiots.

Should salaries be winsorized?

I am reading Crime and Punishment, and it is amusing that there is a male Russian radical character stating the belief that woman are equal to men in every way, including physical strength.  The more things change, the more they stay the same.

This here does not in any way change the genetic interests of the English people; EGI is forward looking and how current genepools came into existence is not the issue.

Why I despise White people, particularly White males (not men).  Yes, international sales contributed, but the bottom line is that if Whites, particularly males, boycotted it, it would tank.  These are the people who are going to bring us Total White Victory (+/- 50 years)?

Whites are a hopeless omega race – lower than omega, the leucosa race.

But if they hate Whites (and they do) – that’s A-OK!  MAGA!  Pepe!  Kek!

Trouble in Colored Paradise.  It’ll all be good when Whitey is not around to kick around any more, right?

Eggroll?  Sounds familiar.  As for the meme itself, well…

Roissy: What’s the common thread?  Gee, I don’t know Beavis…maybe, cuck naggers?

How’s that “last chance for White America” thing coming along?  If the Quota Queens had any character whatsoever, they’d leave racial activism and go retire to some place they’d be comfortable (Israel or China are two prime destinations).

Behold the wopess – this couldn’t happen to a more deserving person. The Left devours its own.  I also enjoy Warren making noises about “breaking up” the Big Tech SJWs. Excellent.

Look at this nonsense, while remembering this written previously.  And this. Two points from the main piece.  First, this fellow claims to be middle-aged.  I always imagined him to be a Millennial, given he writes like a callow youth.  Second, note the part about gays, particularly that “committed” homosexuals should find an opposite sex gay person to reproduce with.

You see, gay apologists like to stress that “it’s biological.”  OK.  So, if it is biological, then by reproducing, they’ll be passing it on. Does a “White Ethnostate” need more homosexuals?  Also, if a man is a “committed” non-bisexual homosexual, meaning he is only sexually attracted to men, how is he going to “get it up” with a woman, much less a lesbian?  So, is it really “only biological” in that case?  And if this is the case of a man who can “perform with anything” in a Negro-like fashion, is that what we want reproducing?

I suppose this can be with artificial insemination – “turkey baster babies.” That’s great!  What a wonderful family unit!  Dad jacks off to gay porn and Mom has that semen placed into her fetid yeastbucket.  What tales they can tell “junior” about his (or her) conception!  Traditionalism!  Is that what a “White Ethnostate” should be about?  

Lots of deep thinkers among the current crop of Counter-Currents writers, of that we can have no doubt.  

His riposte would no doubt be: “I have personally seen it happen more than once.”  Interesting people this individual associates with.  His anecdotal claim then brings us back to the same questions and comments made above.

Then there’s the comments:

Madison Grant never had kids. Adolf Hitler never had kids. Were they losers? Were they failures?

Do I really need to answer that?

…the Movement is made up of and attracts men who are weirdos and spergs…

True.

…saying to young WN men that we should get married and have kids is advice that’s dead on arrival. And to be clear, I’m not saying that nerds and spergs should be catered to or coddled (truth be told, we should submit to voluntarily sterilization after we create the White Ethnostate.

And he just proves his own self-characterization.  Gee…yes, let’s sterilize all the intellectual introverts, so the whole population will be strutting around like Vince McMahon and sniggering like Beavis and Butthead within two generations. The Alt Right/Game Idiocratic Ethnostate!  I support eugenics, but one has to be careful, since traits are linked.  It would seem to be a good thing to select against manic-depression, neuroticism, anxiety, introversion, etc. – until you end up with an uncreative, laid-back nation of Negrified psychopaths.  Selecting solely for intelligence may leave you with a nation of autistic soyboys. At least promote the breeding of well-rounded and accomplished individuals by suppressing the lowest dregs, without being too narrow in your criteria.

Might as well get it out of the way early on: I’m a young white man with an Asian wife.

American Renaissance awaits!  VDARE embraces you!  What’s the problem? Hail Derbyshire!

Question: Then why doesn’t this person support the Sallis groupuscule, which has been telling the truth about Trump for more than three years?  Do I really need to link to that affirmative action YouTube song video again? Let’s just pretend I did.

Roissy continues to be insanely deluded:

Trump, do something useful this week for your base. Direct your AG to declare the SPLC a hate group which should be monitored nonstop by the FBI.

What is far more likely is that Trump will write a big fat (like him) “D’Nations” check to the SPLC, while tweeting about how the Democrats are so terribly “anti-Semitic.” 

Weasel-faced Roissy still doesn’t get it.  Hey, Roissy – your “God Emperor” (by his actions and inaction, forget the bombastic blustering) supports the SPLC.  He supports Antifa. He betrays his base on a now-almost-daily basis.  Can you give up your sweaty homoerotic fervor for this obese clown?

And now it is all because “Bannon left and was replaced by ‘Javanka.”  Newsflash to the Trumptards: If your obese “God Emperor” was actually a serious right-wing populist and not a blustering buffoon, then Bannon would still be there, wouldn’t he?  Isn’t Trump the masterful alpha male billionaire “Art of the Deal” (ghostwritten) hero leading us into glory?  Is he going to be manipulated by his praying mantis-headed daughter and her skinny Jew husband?  What gives?

Swallow Your Blackpill, 1/23/19

Let’s consider reality.

Watch this.

I haven’t said anything so far about the Covington Catholic School incident, but let me say this. This incident, coming so soon after the James Watson and Steve King fiascos, demonstrate very clearly that Whites are a pathetic, powerless, subaltern caste who are hated and despised by the entire System, and who have defenders, no supporters, no leaders.  Decade after decade the “movement” has preened and pontificated, churned through millions of dollars and through the lives of its supporters, and more recently championed the Presidency of a vulgar fraud (When is that Covington invite to the White House coming Donny?  Will you invite some of your Antifa friends there as well, to punch these innocent children?  Maybe little Jeff would like to do it?). The end result: Whites are more of a disenfranchised, humiliated, oppressed population now than ever before.  And the outrageously incompetent leaders have the nerve – shall we say the chutzpah – to debate among themselves “when our victory will be achieved.”  Are they really that delusional, or are they merely protecting their reputations and their cash flows?

And why don’t the Covington boys get a nice lawyer and sue all those celebrities openly calling for attacks on children, and sue Twitter for allowing it (and for maintaining all those “blue check marks”), while others are deplatformed simply for expressing legitimate political opinions?

Aren’t there any lawyers willing to take the case?  Or is that – the lack thereof – another indication of the “untouchable” status of Whites in American today? 

Hey, Greg, here’s some female “agency” for you.

And some more.

Daniels is the archetypal J Richards poster girl – blonde, man-jawed, big-boned, and floppy-breasted.  And of course, if you disagreed with Richards’ standards of female beauty, then you were “insane.”  That was during the rapid decline phase of Majority Rights, a phase that Counter-Currents is currently enjoying.

In any case, to me, Daniels has all the sex appeal of warmed-over roadkill, but Trump apparently was favorably impressed at one point in time.  There’s no accounting for taste, I suppose.

I was annoyed recently reading about crazed feminists accusing Gene Wolfe (of all people!) of being a “misogynist” who is “insensitive” to yeastbucket feelings because his female characters are “not well formed” and some of his male characters (Severian I suppose) sometimes treat milady with less than beta obsequious behavior.  This is the same Gene Wolfe who was devoted to his wife and who converted to Catholicism – becoming a devout practitioner of that religion – for his wife’s sake.  That’s the same Gene Wolfe whose books are actually full of interesting female characters.  But you can’t please SJW scum.  I also remember some retards accusing Wolfe of “anti-Asian racism” because they stupidly thought that the robot-like “Ascians” were “Asians,” while they clearly are the population of a far-future America. In The Book of the New Sun, the “Xanthic lands” are where Asia is or was – The Commonwealth is in South America; Ascia is in North America.  But I assume the SJWs would find the word “Xanthic” offensive as well.  After all, we can call Europeans “White” but we cannot call East Asians “Yellow.”

Talking about Wolfe always reminds me of my other favorite sci-fi writer, Jack Vance, whose healthy attitudes towards milady were described here, and also described here.

In addition, a young and attractive woman in Cugel’s Saga is described thus:

…gifted with a buxom chest and robust little haunches while still retaining a slender and flexible waist…

Cugel is “worse” than his literary “descendant” Severian in how he treats milady.  Although sometimes Cugel is insulted, tricked, and mistreated by cunning females, he also often gets back at them very well, including incidents of forced sex, which in The Eyes of the Overworld is given the euphemism “couching.”

I am of course not in any way condoning or supporting the behavior so depicted – of course the attitude of men toward women must be that of beta orbiter groveling, lickspittle admiration, and the idea that every slutty landwhale reeking of festering yeast is a potential Joan of Arc leading us to deliverance.  But, still, Vance is amusing, no?

And in contrast to “The Ring” and other Tolkien crap, Vance presents to us the “Pectoral Sky-break Spatterlight” that I definitely greatly prefer.  The former is a Type I literary artifact; the latter, Type II.

One less for Derbyshire.
