Mind boggling stat - onlyfans has 50x more revenue than substack. These empowered women make far more than we do or the men who simp for them. All part of the WEF Wehrmacht arsenal that has destroyed birth rates and a wholesome happy human experience: https://yuribezmenov.substack.com/p/how-to-save-private-ryan

Wonderful piece! Breaks my heart that people get pulled into this mercenary outlook. A friend of my wife’s who struggles with addiction tried creating an onlyfans so she could pay for her habit. Real low point in her life and it was right there. I think she made about $60/mos and her ex husband used it as grounds to take away her remaining visitation rights. Sure there are stories in the reverse where men get consumed by cam sites. Not a fan of big machines that eat human dignity to produce profit. It’s like we make little demons to sit on people’s shoulders to whisper in their ears.

This WAS a fantastic piece until this ridiculous line was added for no reason.

‘Since the 1970s, as off-shoring moved countless American jobs overseas with little to replace them, less-educated American men have suffered greater rates of unemployment while college-educated men do not.’

Besides having nothing to do with the story, the above statement is 100% demonstrably false. Millions of American jobs are going unfilled due to labor shortages.

Such a silly statement causes the reader to question the writer’s accuracy and judgment in other areas of the story.

So sad and unnecessary.

If you think that all rights are made up and subject to the whims of government then perhaps America isn’t the best place for you. Below is the bedrock founding principle of the US as laid out in the Declaration of Independence.

‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…’

It is up to the courts to determine which rights are inalienable, but your statement that all rights are subject to the whims of democracy is highly troubling.

Unless a country acknowledges the existence of inalienable rights the eventual outcome will be a dictatorship.

This theme seems to be in the air with Bridget Phetasy’s regrets about being a “slut” for example.

Two great films at the very beginning and center of Sexual Liberation, Swinging London in the 60s, sounded a clear warning that was totally ignored, “Darling” with Julie Christie https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0059084/

and “Alfie” with Michael Caine https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/general-news/alfie-review-1966-movie-1032305/amp/ Both are great films, telling a compelling story of the sexual exploitation and self-degradation the new ethos made possible from a woman’s (eg Stanford Sugar Babies) and a man’s (eg compulsive Tinder himbos) perspective. “Alfie” also had a great theme song written by Burt Bacharach that made the moral stakes pellucid and it was a huge hit by Dionne Warwick. None of this stopped the all-conquering tide of sexual liberation, and the detritus is washing up on the beach of what is left of our civilization in every direction we look.
