So I was perusing the Adventist Book Centre Website the other day and found that they had the DVD “Fireproof” available to purchase. There was a whole blurb on it and how it teaches such wonderful morals etc. etc.
Anyone who has bothered to read what Dalrock has to say on the subject will see that it is a very man unfriendly video. It panders to the Eat, Pray, Love crowd (Cheat, Betray, Leave?). It is essentially divorce porn for Christian women. But there is another aspect to it that I hadn’t seen until recently when there was some commentary on how many women are treating men these days.
This treatment can be summarised thus – Alpha fux, Beta bux. Alternatively – alpha lays, beta pays. Essentially what is now being seen by many in the man-o-sphere is that women have divided men into two classes. There are men that they want to fuck(alphas) and men that they want for protection and provision for them(betas). The second category of men are also known as walking ATM’s. Generally these two categories are mutually exclusive.
In other words the men they want to fuck don’t have to worry about providing and the walking ATM’s won’t have to worry about getting some nooky from them.
Coming back to “Fireproof” one sees two men in the life of the woman in the movie. One is the walking ATM who is of no use to her if he will not come up with the goods for whatever it is she wants no matter how unreasonable it is. The other is a man who can give her satisfaction and the money don’t really matter.
What we see here in Fireproof is a classic promotion of polyandry but of course done in such a manner that it can be plausibly denied. The Christian version of polyandry is commonly referred to as Serial Monogamy.
