Mancels, just like others in the manosphere, tend to view the 1960s sexual revolution in a negative light. When asked, most malecels of the incelosphere will tell you that the event had several negative consequences. Along with the stick of feminism, the pill, and gynocracy, the revolution has brought about levels of female hypergamy unseen since the hunter-gatherer era.
The sexual revolution refers to the period of time between the 1960s and 1980s, when it became socially acceptable for girls to act like sluts, and pre-marital cohabitation and casual sex was normalized. The proponents of the sexual revolution claimed it would bring more sex to society, but in reality it only brought more sex to most women and higher status males. The increase in (mainly) female sexual freedom brought on by the sexual revolution is argued to have unleashed female hypergamy, hence leaving most below average males incel.

Causes[edit | edit source]
Feminism[edit | edit source]
Feminism has undeniably contributed greatly to the corruption of the gender roles and sexual degeneracy, which leads antifeminists to blame the sexual revolution entirely on feminism. However, as discussed in the sections below, there are plausibly a number of other factors that facilitated the sexual revolution, some of which even predate feminism. Feminism appears to be mostly a movement that piggybacked upon societal and technological changes and amplified them.
Female workforce participation[edit | edit source]
There is a strong economic incentive to include women in the workforce. Female emancipation causally increases economic productivity which in turn increases prosperity overall. Countries and economies also inevitably engage in arms races regarding workforce size. Just as ecological crises like global warming resulting from economic competition, this is difficult to regulate due to Prisoner's dilemmas.
The egalitarian ideology that underlies feminism is in line with female workforce participation, and hence, feminism could rather naturally gain popularity.
Technology[edit | edit source]
Some of these sex roles are arranged voluntarily, such as men instead of women typically driving cars. Men are not forced to do the driving by society, but in the marriage, the men and women come up with an agreement that the man should drive. Throughout much of history, women were not "forced" to do manual labor work. This is probably because women could get married and do housework instead. There were not washing machines, wrinkle-free clothing, dishwashers, and vacuum cleaners back then. Before the advent of technology, women did have a job. Also, before machines replaced many manual labor jobs, men were forced to do manual labor instead. Before machines, men, women and children all had to do manual labor work to earn a wage.
Technology had made housework easier, so women no longer have to do full-time housework. The result is that marriage at an early age has become less useful.
Declining birth rate[edit | edit source]
People were having fewer children, eliminating the amount of time necessary for women to stay at home to raise children, making the role of the housewife redundant.
Birth control[edit | edit source]
With the widespread availability of birth control, women are able to have casual sex without fear of unwanted pregnancy.
Welfare State[edit | edit source]
In developed countries with a welfare system, women don't need to sexually commit to a man in order to obtain resources. The welfare system forces all men to pay taxes to sustain unrelated women, which in turn reduces the disposable income a men can command to attract females, further lowering the relative attractiveness of marriage vis-a-vis the bachelorette lifestyle.
Paternity testing[edit | edit source]
Reduced the negative consequences of casual sex (increased disputes involving paternity). This relaxed the legal attitudes against infidelity.
Earlier puberty[edit | edit source]
Premature puberty has also made women more slutty. In the 1900's, girls typically had puberty at around age 14. In 2010, girls tend to have puberty at age 10-11. This means that their sex drive begins earlier, leading them to have sex at an earlier age. In 2010, women on average began having sex at age 15 rather than the 1900's where women had sex later because puberty occurs later. In the 1900's it was easier for women to be virgins until they marry at 22 years of age. In the 2010's, it's much harder both due to earlier puberty and later age of marriage (women in 2010 marry at age 26, allowing more time for them to be sluts until they marry).
Religious attitudes[edit | edit source]
Studies show that religious people are more against casual sex.
The majority of Americans are still Christian. This suggests that it was more of a moral shift rather than a religious shift. Nobody really follows the bible 100% strictly, not even in the past, so it was more of a moral shift (in addition to the technological and cultural shifts described above).
Women-are-wonderful effect[edit | edit source]
Women are generally evaluated as more positively. They are weaker and more neotenous looking and it is easy to see them as victims. As the definition of what counts as aggression becomes ever more sensitive, people started to associate even the simple subordination of women as aggression and equate it with e.g. beating a child.
Feedback loop: Sneaky males[edit | edit source]
Liberated, choosier women result in more sexually frustrated men. The gynocentric notion that men need to be nice causes sexually frustrated men being nice to women in order to get sex. This includes promoting pro-feminist values, emancipation and sexual revolution. This, however only increases men's sexual frustration.
Feedback loop: Greedy parents[edit | edit source]
As women get pushed by affirmative action, it incentivizes parents to push their female offspring into careers and to promote feminism. This in turn increases affirmative action.
Conclusion[edit | edit source]
As you see, many of the changes throughout society (like women being sluts, women in the workforce, etc.) were not solely the product of feminism.
Effects[edit | edit source]
Standards for modesty[edit | edit source]
Single women don't have boyfriends or husbands who tell them to dress modestly.
Consumerism[edit | edit source]
Maintaining a positive sex image wasn't taboo anymore due to the minimized consequences. Women dressing in an overly revealing manner and sexualizing themselves was stigmatized before birth control but not much after birth control, as such behaviors are less likely to cause negative consequences that result from "immoral" sexual behavior, such as unintended pregnancy and cheating.
Men also buy expensive cars to impress women.
Language[edit | edit source]
Words like "badass" and "pussy" are used as praises and insults. "Badass" is attractive to women. But "pussy" isn't attractive to women. Why are such words used more often? It's due to our increased obsession with maintaining a positive sexual image.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Women put on makeup and buy clothing in attempt to maintain a positive sexual image. Men work out to maintain a positive sexual image.
