More Western Women are Increasingly Marrying Themselves
In recent years, the concept of “sologamy” – or marriage to oneself – has been gaining traction among women around the world. More and more women are choosing to marry themselves, either as a symbol of self-love or to celebrate an important milestone in their lives.
Sologamy is not legally recognized in any country, but that doesn’t stop women from celebrating their commitment to themselves in a meaningful way. Many women choose to have a ceremony, either alone or with friends, to mark their decision to marry themselves. This can involve writing vows, exchanging rings or other tokens of commitment, and making a toast to their own lives.
The idea of sologamy has been around for a while, but it’s only in recent years that it has become more popular. This could be due to the rise of the self-care movement and the importance of taking time for oneself in today’s busy world. For many women, sologamy represents a way to take control of their own lives and commit to themselves in a meaningful way.
Proponents of sologamy argue that it is a positive and empowering act. It’s a way for women to show themselves that they are worthy of love and respect, and to celebrate their own successes and growth. It also gives women an opportunity to reflect on their own values and goals, and to make promises to themselves that they can strive to keep.
While sologamy has become increasingly popular in recent years, it’s still a controversial topic. Critics argue that it’s self-indulgent and not a “real” marriage. But for those who have chosen to marry themselves, it is a meaningful and powerful act that celebrates their autonomy and self-love.
Western Men Continue to Check Out of Society and Avoid Western Women
In recent years, a growing number of men have been checking out of society and avoiding women altogether. This phenomenon has been referred to as ‘masculinism’ and is becoming increasingly visible in a variety of forums, from online discussion boards to physical meet-ups.
At the core of the masculinist movement is a belief that traditional gender roles have been reversed, with women now holding the dominant position in society. This has led to men feeling marginalised and invisible, leading to a desire to create a space for themselves where they can be free from the pressures of a female-dominated society.
The masculinist movement has also been influenced by the rise of the ‘manosphere’, a network of websites, blogs and forums that are dedicated to male-oriented topics such as self-improvement and the ‘red pill’ philosophy. This philosophy is based on the idea that men should focus on their own interests, rather than trying to please women or society in general.
As a result of this trend, more and more men are opting out of traditional relationships and avoiding female-dominated environments. Many are shunning traditional dating sites and turning to alternative sites such as ‘Incels’, which cater specifically to men who are unable to find relationships.
The masculinist movement has also been linked to the rise in ‘incel’ violence. Incels, or involuntary celibates, are men who are unable to find relationships and have taken to violence as a means of expressing their frustration.
While there are legitimate concerns about the masculinist movement, it is important to remember that not all men who opt out of traditional relationships are violent or misogynistic. For some, it is simply a way to express dissatisfaction with the status quo and a desire to find a space for themselves in a society that has become increasingly female-dominated.
Ultimately, the masculinist movement is a complex issue that requires further exploration. In the meantime, it is important to remember that not all men who opt out of traditional relationships are violent or misogynistic, and that it is possible to have constructive dialogue about the issues facing men in today’s society.
