Though it's risky enough to say so, it's beyond obvious to most who aren't fettered by political correctness that the Woke movement operates on toxically feminine energy; that is, mean girls stuff. The question people have is why. One reason is that it's obviously attractive to young women for some set of reasons, but this only moves the question one step further back. In this episode of James Lindsay OnlySubs, my subscribers-only podcast, I explore the idea that the Woke ideology provides young women in a deregulated sexual market with a powerful tool for erecting a filtering mechanism and is therefore attractive to (some of) them, whom it advantages. This observation follows from a fairly well-established belief in the (evolutionary) psychology of dating and human courtship that suggests that males tend to be evaluated for mate-worthiness in terms of their "approach mechanism" while females are evaluated according to their "filtering mechanism." Being a Wokescold is a very powerful filtering mechanism that even allows for creating a whole new pecking order of female dominance through social and psychological manipulation. Join me for this controversial little exploration.
