I am not good at statistics. However, I am good a sensing socio-gender trends. Houston, we have a problem. It’s going to be a huge problem in about five years, especially so for the SWPL (Stuff White People Like) class.
There is going to be a huge husband shortage. Nevermind all the beta provider talk, this is a matter of statistics. Men aren’t going to college nearly as much as women, at least for the non-STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). So what we have is a gender imbalance in the collegiate humanities subjects. Let’s allow the admissions departments deal with that one. Oh, to be a fly on the wall in those meetings. Political correctness meets the stark reality of demographics in an epic cage fight. But no, the serious problem is post graduation.
Hello hypergamy. Women marry up. That’s biology, don’t fight it. With a plethora of young women armed with fresh (and likely useless) Bachelors of Arts degrees and a dearth of young men with equivalent degrees, the husband shortage becomes acute. Would a young woman marry down in the realm of education? Uh, no. Hell, there won’t even be enough STEM guys to bolster to rolls of the beta provider class of men.
The MRAs of the Manosphere talk mightily of the marriage strike. Dalrock has proven that there is not an actual strike, per se. He’s better with statistics than I am and so I respect his analysis of the subject.
The marriage strike will be nothing more than college-educated women who can’t find men of equal or higher value who are willing to commit to them. Sure, the alpha/charisma guys will happily bed them but as such guys will be in short supply, they have options and average Jane Cupcake with a BA in marketing will only be just another port in a storm.
The fix to this problem? Dream on. That would require quotas for male enrollment in college, non-STEM. Here’s a thoroughly revolutionary concept: Keep the dames out of college. Yeah, I said it.
Here’s a portent of the future for hypergamous female college graduates.
