Summary: America is changing into a different kind of society. Here are bulletins from the experiments with feminism, progress reports – of a sort – about the condition of the
lab rats women. All are written by feminist women who are quite candid about the results so far.
“I’ve distilled the essence of feral femininity.”
Confuse the development of young children’s gender identity
A headline in Inside Higher Ed: “Gender-nonconforming and transgender students are four times more likely to report mental health issues compared to the rest of their peers, according to a new study that is the largest so far to focus on this population of college students.” That discusses in layman’s terms “Gender Minority Mental Health in the U.S.: Results of a National Survey on College Campuses” by Sarah Ketchen Lipson (an asst prof of health law, policy and management at Boston U) and two other women scientists, published in the September issue of American Journal of Preventive Medicine. Which reports data from the Healthy Minds Study – Research on Adolescent and Young Adult Mental Health.
Schools and others working with America’s youth are devoting massive efforts to confusing their gender identities. Textbooks and other reading materials, and films all strive to raise doubts in the minds of the young about who they are. Transvestites and such are stars at children’s Library Reading Hours. Twist a child while they are young and see the result as they grow!
Of course, the death toll from this experiment will be high since the suicide rate of transgender
lab rats people is far higher (see the most recent of the studies showing this). They are collateral damage in the destruction of the patriarchy!
Create experimental personalities for girls.
Long long ago at Cornell, I was taught the basics of gender studies and feminism by Professor Judith Long Laws (author of The Second X: Sex Role and Social Role, 1978). She said that each gender’s behavior was to a large extent a social construct. I believed her. Years later I decided that she was wrong. But our great experiment has proven that she was correct. Much of what we considered “feminine” behavior was taught, as we discovered by changing their education. Some are obviously taught, such as how to behave with men. Some is surprising: women are taught that they want to have and raise children (pronatalism).
Societies often worry about feral men because the natural state of men is incompatible with civilization. Partially socialized young men have a tendency to go rogue and cause chaos. Now technology has made possible the previously unthinkable: we raise somewhat feral young women, so that we see the natural state of women. The first results of the experiment are coming in, as we see how well the
lab rats liberated young women are doing in the wild.

Wall Street Journal, 15 August 2019.
“Amid our huge, unplanned experiment with social media, new research suggests that many American adolescents are becoming more anxious, depressed and solitary.”
The WSJ discusses a disturbing survey.
“A 2019 survey by the Pew Research Center found that 36% of girls report being extremely anxious every day. They are particularly worried about school shootings, melting polar ice and their ability to afford college.
This refers to a Pew Research survey in which girls self-report about their lives. The rate of depression increased by 66% from 2007 to 2017. The Pew article makes no mention of “melting polar ice” or “school shootings” as a top concern of girls. The girls reported disturbing news.
“One-in-five teenage girls – or nearly 2.4 million – had experienced at least one major depressive episode …over the past year in 2017. By comparison, 7% of teenage boys …had at least one major depressive episode in the past 12 months. …”About three-in-ten teens (29%) said they felt tense or nervous about their day every or almost every day, and 45% said they felt tense or nervous sometimes. About a third of teen girls (36%) reported feeling this way every day or almost every day, compared with 23% of teen boys.
“Academic and social pressures are among the reasons cited by experts who have studied teen depression. The Center’s survey asked about some of those pressures teens face in their daily lives. About six-in-ten teens (61%) said they personally felt a lot of pressure to get good grades, while roughly three-in-ten reported a lot of pressure to look good and fit in socially (29% and 28%, respectively).”
The gap between 36% girls and 23% boys feeling “tense or nervous” every day is small. It might reflect just the different social scripts of each gender, or willingness to say what they are expected to say. It might be a typical feature of adolescence, rather than an issue for psychiatrists with a bag full of drugs.
Demonstrating the standards of social science research, the authors explain their study and one interesting result.
“We have conducted interviews and focus groups with around 100 American girls aged 12 to 19 and their mothers …Many girls report that their mothers are their best friends.”
Would the girls say this if their mothers were not sitting there? The scientists did not ask. But they give us a lot of bad news.
“But girls today aren’t as self-sufficient as their counterparts in earlier decades: They are less likely to possess driver’s licenses, work outside the home or date. They are also more solitary. …Many girls are rarely out in the world alone, solving problems by themselves. When girls do eventually leave home, they often find themselves ill-prepared to navigate ‘real life.’ In 2011, the American College Health Association reported that 31% of female freshmen said they had experienced overwhelming anxiety or panic attacks; by 2016, that had shot up to 62%. …
“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 1993, girls scored the highest levels of suicide ever recorded. From 1994 onward, rates of suicide steadily declined until 2007, when they started to skyrocket.”
That is pretty awful results from 30 years of feminist-run schools, in a feminist-dominated culture. That’s not what they promised from their experiments on
lab rats America’s girls. But after all that bad news, Mary and Sara give us the standard big ending. They know the solution: more feminism.
“This generation of girls, we found, is particularly eager to make its opinions heard and defend its rights. ‘I stand up for myself and others,’ Greer, 16, told us. ‘It gives me hope, because when other girls accept themselves like I do, we can take all that energy and launch the Industrial Revolution of girl power.'”
Experiment #3: Bisexuality & lesbianism are hot!
Op-ed at NBC News by Marcie Bianco.
“Women like Cyrus are speaking out about sexuality in ways that put the power –
and responsibility – back into their own hands.”
“As the status quo, heterosexuality is just not working. As a snapshot of 2019 America, these stories present a startling picture: Men continue to coerce, harass, rape and kill girls and women – and go to extreme lengths to avoid responsibility for their actions. On the other side of the issue, girls and women are challenging heterosexuality, and even absconding from it altogether.
“Framed differently, the picture is this: Men need heterosexuality to maintain their societal dominance over women. Women, on the other hand, are increasingly realizing not only that they don’t need heterosexuality, but that it also is often the bedrock of their global oppression. …While men stew in their mess, women are rising. They are taking back control of their lives and their bodies and they are questioning the foundation of the patriarchy – heterosexuality – that has kept them blindly subordinate for centuries.”
Marcie describes how two wealthy stars arrange their feminist lives at the peak of their sexual attractiveness: Julianne Hough (dancer, age 31) and Miley Cyrus (singer, age 26). They urge young women to ride the carousel forever. Go wild!
How will this experiment work for non-wealthy and non-celebrity women as they age? I suspect we will see a few articles by men complaining that these women won’t marry. But we will see many more articles like these, as desperate
lab rats women in their 30s jump off the carousel and demand that men marry them.
“Peter Pan Syndrome: A Man’s Fear of Commitment” at the Self-Love-Beauty website — “This is when a man is afraid to grow up. They usually put themselves first and do not want to commit to anything. They are unable to face adult feelings and responsibilities.” Somebody did not read Aesop’s fable about “The Fox and the Sour Grapes.”
“Where have all the good men gone?” by Alana Kirk in the Daily Mail. Where you left them in your 20s.
“These are highly educated, very successful women and one after another they were saying they couldn’t find a partner. How could it be that all these amazing, attractive intelligent women were lamenting about their ability to find a partner?”
“Learn how to make him commit: The Secret Lives of Men” by Joel D. Amos. Good luck with that in the next generation.
Feminists are conducting one of the largest and boldest social science experiments ever. Confident in their ideology, they conduct no trials or tests. We donate our children to be their lab rats. We should take a moment and wonder if this will end well, and what might be the consequences of its failure.

A deep look at women on the front lines of the revolution
Cheap Sex: The Transformation of Men, Marriage, and Monogamy by Mark Regnerus (2017). Based on some of the best research available about Americans’ sex and relationships. See Cheap Sex is the Inconvenient Truth in the end of marriage. and Misadventures of a young woman in modern America. From the publisher …
“Sex is cheap. Coupled sexual activity has become more widely available than ever. Cheap sex has been made possible by two technologies that have little to do with each other – the Pill and high-quality pornography – and its distribution made more efficient by a third technological innovation, online dating. Together, they drive down the cost of real sex, and in turn slow the development of love, make fidelity more challenging, sexual malleability more common, and have even taken a toll on men’s marriageability.
“Cheap Sex takes readers on an extended tour inside the American mating market, and highlights key patterns that characterize young adults’ experience today, including the timing of first sex in relationships, overlapping partners, frustrating returns on their relational investments, and a failure to link future goals like marriage with how they navigate their current relationships. Drawing upon several large nationally-representative surveys, in-person interviews with 100 men and women, and the assertions of scholars ranging from evolutionary psychologists to gender theorists, what emerges is a story about social change, technological breakthroughs, and unintended consequences.
“Men and women have not fundamentally changed, but their unions have. No longer playing a supporting role in relationships, sex has emerged as a central priority in relationship development and continuation. But unravel the layers, and it is obvious that the emergence of “industrial sex” is far more a reflection of men’s interests than women’s.”
