Back in 1964 Eric Bern, a psychologist, wrote a book called Games People Play, launching a new way of looking people. The book described an array of methods that people use to manipulate other people in order to get what they want from them—or methods of defending against assumed threats. Bern extended Sigmund Freud’s original list of neurotic defense mechanisms and gave the games catchy names.
Over the years, radical feminists have devised their own methods of manipulating men. Below are five of these feminist games.
The headline this morning said, “North Carolina girl wrestler dominates boys to become first ever female state champion.” She was praised not just for winning the championship, but mainly for winning it against boys. Girls are winning acclaim by beating boys, and this encourages them to complete with men later on. Perhaps soon there will be a Nobel prize for women who can defeat the most men.
It appears that girls are being encouraged to beat boys, not only in wrestling but in everything else. Girls are encouraged to go to college and make something of themselves, whereas it appears that boys—having toxic masculinity—are no longer being encouraged. At present girls make up 65% of undergraduate programs, while boys are at 35%. Girls are making higher grades than boys, and boys are showing up in large numbers at college counseling offices to talk about their low motivation.

If we study the average number of males and females in college today, it may be an indicator of what kind of parenting boys are given. The proportion of males and females in college classes has changed over the years. In the 1970s the proportion was approximately even. Fifty percent of college students were male and 50% were female.
However, since then that proportion has gradually changed. By the 1980s, the proportion was 45% male to 55% female. By the 1990s the proportion was about 40% male to 60% female. And by 2020, the proportion had risen to about about 35% male to 65% female–this according to Forbes. If this trend continues at the same rate, by the year 2050, there will be very few males in college.
Men don’t need to objectify women. Women objectify themselves before men ever get around to objectifying them.
Women objectify themselves whenever they wear tight, black leggings that hug every curve and sink into every crevice of their bodies. When they walk down the street or into a bus or through a lobby the leggings frame them and accentuate the movement of their hips and thighs and the sensual quiver of their derrieres.
Taller guys have longer dicks, according to research. Also, taller guys with bigger penises have happier lives, according to other research. Women tend to prefer guys with longer Johnsons, says still other research. Since basketball players are tall, we can then assume they have the tallest penises and get the most women.
To put it all together, taller guys with longer penises get more women and are happier. Basketball players, who tend to be taller than other men, are the happiest men. This also implies that shorter guys with, say, nubs for penises, get fewer women. And hence one might infer that soccer players, with average-sized penises, get fewer women, are less happy.
We have now had 34 mass killings this year (of 5 or more people), and the year isn’t finished yet. Mass killing are one of the most heinous forms of destructive communication, the ultimate acting out of feelings. A while back President Trump said to Kim Jung Un, President of North Korea, that if the Korean leader continued to escalate his development of his nuclear arsenal, Un would experience “fire and fury like the world has never seen.” This, again, is the most destructive kind of communication—a harsh death threat.
Recently a nurse was fired from Indiana University Health after she tweeted, “Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son. Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, killer, and domestic violence all star. Historically, every son you had should be sacrificed to the B-ch Wolves…”
This statement resulted in its tweeter being punished. But many other such statements about men, especially white males as well as behaviors, have not only passed inspection but also have been encouraged. In fact, it appears that a kind of persecution of white males has gone on for at least half a century.
At the end of the Miss Universe contest, Columbia’s Paulina Vega (who was later crowned as this year’s Miss Universe) was asked, “What can women learn about equality from men?” She hemmed and hawed and remarked about how tough the question was. Finally she answered that some men understood about equality and women could learn from those men.
What Miss Universe’s answer overtly stated is that women can only learn from men who understand about equality, and what her answer implied is that women can only learn from men who understand equality the way women understand it. As a man and as a psychoanalyst, I found that answer frustrating. To me it smacks of reverse sexism.
