    Lauren Southern never purported to being a racialist or white nationalist in the first place though. In 2019, anyone can be conservative, it doesn't equate to the alt-right, and even many alt-righters are not white (nationalists).

    What do you think about Lana Lokteff? I like her and I think that she's genuine.

    Sex sells, for more than a hundred years images of good looking women have been used to sell products. The trick is to look past the package to see if the actual product is good or not. Political ideas have become products, if they weren't already, churches sell salvation , politicians sell a better way and the drug dealer sells escapism.

    Here is a song about it

    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    So a woman's value is resumed to her being married and having children? That's rather simplistic. If a woman is dedicated to political activism at a certain point in her life, children may be a liability (they can always be targeted by opponents, used as a means to blackmail or even taken away by the state). While if you're a mother with many children, political activism and especially activities like LS was involved in (extensive travel to 3rd world countries, filming, interviewing politicians and the like) may take you away from spending precious time with your kids and giving them the attention they require and deserve. Of course you can still make videos from your home in your spare time, but that's a different matter. Also, who says that they will never marry or have kids in the first place? Lauren Southern recently withdrew from the public eye and starting a family was among her reasons. One of the reasons she stated not being married with kids was not having a quality partner. Here is her video btw:



    That sounds to me like a pretty good reason. Women who marry for the sake of being married are more likely to divorce than those who marry because they actually have a good relationship with their partner in the first place. That LS had a questionable past or that she might have scammed people doesn't change the argument btw.

    Isn't Lauren Southern in her early 20s? That's at least according to modern standards, an early age to be married and have children. She might want to finish her education first, especially because nowadays if you want to have more than one child, it usually takes more than just the husband working.

    I'm not saying that it's wrong to have a family early, it's not, but that the trends have changed. Even here on Skadi, we have examples of women who got married and/or had children in their 30s, myself included. On the other hand, I remember that Bärin was criticised a lot for marrying and having children when she was 18 or 19? So the position women are in is not an easy one. They're damned if they do and damned if they don't. They are expected to fulfill traditional roles and early, eventhough society has changed and men themselves no longer fulfill traditional roles either (such as being the main breadwinner). Women are expected to go in the workforce, be educated, and the like, and even if they don't want to do this, societal changes more or less forces them to, unless they're lucky enough to find a suitable traditional husband early. This is not to say that traditional roles are the only way to go. Personally, I know a couple of stay at home dads and they're doing a great job.

    On YouTube there are channels which seek to ride the next new wave, because that's where the money is at. An example of this are "pick up artist" channels (which were also hijacked by men who weren't PUA to begin with, merely scamming braggers), which fell out of fashion of late because of #metoo and the fact that their tips don't help much in real life. These PUA scammers have transitioned to other parts of the manosphere by now. The goal is still the same. "I'll tell you whatever you want to hear and you send me money."

    Trad thottery is not a matter of being married and/or having children. It's about pretending to be something you're not.

    It's just that it's easier for women to pull off this kind of scam than it is for men - because it's men who are more drawn to the far right and if a woman shows up in this scene it's like receiving a glass of fresh water in the desert, for a man. All the more so if she's pretty.

    I would think that when a political channel makes its owner the main subject rather than political matters we're dealing with someone disingenuous - the interviewer during streets interviews shouldn't be the highlight of the street interview, for example, not even in real journalism - it's aggrevating when a professional journalist seeks the spotlight as well. And if a woman promotes traditionalism but is in a state of undress in her videos her motives are questionable as well.

    Welll I'm in my mid 20s and I have a daughter of almost two-year-old. I didn't need to wait until my 30s or 40s.
    The sooner the better, specially in this demographic winter.

    Then you were lucky to find a good husband, but not every woman has the same luck. For example, I've only married recently with 32 years, and it wasn't because I purposely wanted to postpone it. My dream was always to marry and have children in a traditional family, a house of my own and so forth, but unfortunately my previous boyfriends, although initially wanted children, they changed their minds later and one of them was even unfaithful. Since I believe children should grow up in a traditional, healthy family, I wanted a husband who could be faithful and love his wife and children, not someone to neglect or even abandon his family for cheap thrills. So in that sense I understand what Blod og Jord is talking about. In the end, it's not only women who have changed, but also men. The experience I've had when I was in my 20s was that a lot of 20 year old guys weren't thinking of family, but of fooling around, having fun and "being free", which excluded becoming fathers. On the other hand, men who are a little bit older are more mature, but of course it's a generalisation, there are exceptions to the rule. As a consequence, the average age when peoples get married has switched, in my country it's 26.7 for women and 30.2 for men, which is still lower than in some Germanic countries, like Sweden (33.5/36), Iceland (32.7/34.6), Netherlands (30.9/33.5) or Germany (30.9/33.4). Anyway, having children in your 30s is still better than not having children at all. We can't turn back the time, we can only look to the future.
