Destiny is child

++Addition++Do read Matt's comment.

Heartiste points to the writeup of a study by the tenaciously dissident Satoshi Kanazawa claiming to show an inverse correlation between IQ and maternal urge in women. In so doing, the former references a finding from the GSS showing that while fertility trends among women in the US are dysgenic when IQ is used as a measure, men appear to be treading water:
Smart and over-educated lawyercunts are a dying breed. Literally. I believe it was the Audacity of Huge [link mine, though presumably intended by that wily devil] who once tabulated and correlated GSS data to find that smart men have more children than dumb men, while smart women have fewer children than dumb women. I call this the “Alpha Male-Cute Secretary Assortative Mating” theory. You may know it better by its street handle: Female hypergamy. And… wait for it… it will be the salvation of the white race in multicultural miasmas.
Here's the post he had in mind, and the relevant graph (apologies for the atrocious aesthetics, but blogger was having a hell of a time uploading graphics at the time):


We've seen, from several different angles, that educational attainment specifically--rather than the intelligence it tends to correlate with--is where the robust inverse correlation with fecundity makes its bed.

The takeaway message for sharp guys with pessimistic views of the future of our collective demography, and consequently the outlook for modern Western Civilization as we know it, is to not make the perfect the enemy of the good and refuse to join the melee because to follow the aquila would entail condescending to fight alongside allies they perceive to be beneath them.

That thinking is suicidal. Demography is destiny. Find an effeminate, trustworthy, fun, sweet, mildly submissive girl desiring children to start a family with. If she's as sharp as a tac, great. As long as she's not an utter dunce, though, you'll still be striking a direct blow against the Idiocracy.

Incidentally, that's the only way such a blow can be struck--those like Heartiste who are sparring in the Circus Maximus and those of more modest abilities who are doing so in a wooden arena in Illyria alike are merely intellectual auxiliaries in the war against the Idiocracy. They may spur others to action, but they cannot win the actual battles on their own. We need you!

It seems to make sense for the really smart guys to marry the pretty smart women.

From a Game perspective, assuming family formation as a goal, it would seem desirable, because in cognitively demanding tasks she'll tend to look up to you for guidance.

the problem is she will eventually take your kids and lifes work and have your children raised by the marxist village to marry another race.

Michael: Yes, but you have to plan ahead for that eventuality. Keep that secret Swiss bank account secret. Plant mental seeds in your children so that they will sabotage the marxist village and only marry beautiful Eurasians, if determined to marry another race.

Be prepared. Strike first. Strike hard. Strike often. Be prepared to keep going even if you strike out more than once. Make your mark.

I don't think things are particularly dysgenic for whites in America.

A few of mitigating factors for whites:
(1) Mortality is eugenic. From this chart, one may estimate that the life expectancy difference between the most and least educated is in the range of 15 years or so. That is substantial.

(2) I suspect that the far left end of the curve is not as fertile as it looks. I doubt they are sampling people with Down syndrome, the institutionalized, etc, and others with extreme underfunctioning. These people probably aren't either procreating much or answering a long GSS questionaire at all. If there is a non-functioning adult dependent in the house when the GSS people are surveying, I doubt that they do the talking. Judging from my congregation at church this could be 4 or 5% of the population.

(3) Wordsum is slanted toward education, and education directly presses against fertility in terms of time constraints. Raven's progressive matrices it is not.

On the other hand, this is what dysgenic looks like (B/f):

Right. Don't be like Matt Damon's professor in Good Will Hunting. If love burns you, cry or rage for a week or a month or whatever, and then friggin' get back in the saddle. If you happen to have a complicated family at age 70, just roll with it. If you have no family at age 70, well sheeut.

I'm heading off tomorrow for a family reunion to celebrate my dad's 70th with his growing clan. He won't even have time to think about how old he is! He didn't become a father until age 35 and then he had 4.

Alternately, a guy can just marry a smart younger woman who will also look up to him because his status and experience make him seem smarter even if both are say, 130 IQ.

I don't really see the point of restricting the analysis to oldies only. Yes, you can be sure they've finished their reproductive life, but it will distort the sample size and people are generally mostly done with reproduction by

Nice that all the groups are above replacement. A few shots of depo provera for those low wordsum femmes would be nice though.

g tends to decline through life, so that's harder than it seems. You need a big differential not to look like a doddering old fart, even comparing 40 year old men to 20 year old girls.

Interestingly, Audacious, although I'm sure you'll well aware of this, the variables Rincome and Educ let us tease apart the causal reasons for male and female marriage difference.

Education is strongly associated with fewer children. This is true for both sexes, not just women!
I think this is because remaining in education is effectively remaining in a pre-adult training and learning stage, which is not conducive to having many children.

Income, on the other hand is associated with having more children for men, but not for women, where it has no association, rather than a null association. I think the reasons for this aren't any silly deep evolutionary, gamism "women seek a provider" thing, but because while both sexes would seek out high value rich mates, this advantage is nullified for women by the fact that actually having children eliminates her income potential (e.g. the pregnancy career problem).

So for men, there is a balance, perhaps a slight advantage for the smart because their tendencies to stay in education for a long time are balanced by high income fecundity returns to intelligence.

(and this may have increased with the increasing inequality of the late Twentieth Century and early Twenty First, and the kind of fragile-ego dominance and hierarchy attitudes which go with that, which in concert with tech obsession leading to a kind of semi-autism and ignorance of basic human nature the kind of thing that has created the bizarre beasts that Roissy and the game scene are)

Whereas for women, there is no such pattern for increasing returns on income.

The biggest losers, in terms of kids are smart, educated, but poor women and dumb, poor and high education men (whenever those sets coincide).

The flat income-intelligence amongt correlation suggests that Ms not-very-submissive Rich Bitch lawyer may do fine in terms of reproduction, whereas the Hbd Chicks of the world (smart, well educated geek girls who don't have highly remunerative jobs) may be the women who really lose out.
