Some things are true but not worth investigating.
Did you know there’s a nickel under the passenger seat of your car?
Now, that may or may not be true. But you’re not going to look, because who cares?
Some things are true, and are worth investigating, but are so terrifying to contemplate that we will actively reject evidence that points to them. Couldn’t German townsfolk near death camps during the Holocaust have put the pieces together and realized what was going on?
I’m sure they could have if presented with the clues as part of a party game. But when it was a)a source of livelihood b)would require active revolt against their government, and c)would mean that all the hope Hitler had brought to Germany* had to be discarded…it became a deduction not worth making.

Again, doesn’t it seem more proper again for there to be woman-up rants instead of the garbage we’re thrown by Driscoll, Mohler, et. al?
It is more proper, but various men don’t want to hear, and a majority of women don’t want that to be heard nor said.
Now, for a second, forget about the women not wanting to hear. Let’s talk about the men.
Why don’t men want to hear? We’re definitely susceptible to our own egos. Why does the idea that, “Hey, generally everything you thought when you were five years old was right, and those bastard adults lied to you, pulling pigtails was totally the name of the game” meet with such resistance?
The answer is twofold.
For alphas, it would just be inconvenient. If what you’re doing is working, why screw it up with some weird crazy-person ideas?
For betas, it represents the End of the World. It means the Nice Girl your mom(and maybe your dad, poor man) told you about is not coming to save you. It is nothing less than the realization that the common thread in your bad relationships (or lack thereof) is you, and fixing that will require losing even the scraps of validation you do get. What’s the worst thing about finding out that (to be simplistic) Feminism is Wrong? It’s that (and you know this) feminism is also in charge, and now, by learning this, you just got signed up for the Rebellion.
*Yes, all the hope. Watch this video until the crowd starts cheering. About a minute.
