The Rationalization Hamster: 10 Ways It Affects Women and Society


The female rationalization hamster is a metaphor for a quirk of female psychology which rationalizes terrible choices

Bad, bad, bad, bad boys…you make me feel so goooood! Gloria Estefan made a hit song about them back in 1985. While today this song has little more than kitsch value, 30 years later we are seeing the destructive effects of women being allowed to indulge their bad boy loving instincts. The song is also representative of a time when Anglo culture started to shift towards total degeneracy.

No matter your level of experience in the mating game, you probably have noticed women fall in love with the type of man who is the exact opposite of what they say they want. For the Red Pill man, there is perhaps no better definition of the rationalization hamster phenomenon than this one from Urban Dictionary.

The rationalization hamster is a legendary creature dwelling deep in the minds of the self-delusional, and is particularly common among young liberal women. From birth, the rationalization hamster enters a symbiotic relation with its host, whereby whenever the host feels a craving to do something completely insane and malicious that will have horrible consequences for everyone in the long run, the rationalization hamster will jump on its wheel and run really, really fast, getting the magical hamster wheel to spin out a long sheet of paper full of neat rationalizations for the ultimately devastating action.

In other words, women rationalize terrible choices they make based on what they feel. The primitive limbic system inside all of us which drives emotion dominates their decision making, rather than the logical (and oh so boring!) cerebrum. Men can make stupid choices, too when driven by emotion but women are virtually powerless against the hamster hidden inside the limbic brain. You can see The Rationalization Hamster outlined in a The New Modern Man infographic here.

Here are 10 ways female hamster rationalizations are affecting society and an explanation of how the hamster rationalizes each terrible outcome.


Red Pill study continues to reveal uncomfortable facts about women

The List

10. Criminals end up with more sexual partners than nice guys. The hamster loves bad boys because of the feels they give women. It runs quickly on the wheel churning out poorly reasoned rationalizations. An endorphin rush of emotion accompanies each thought of a romantic tryst with a criminal in the female mind. Consequently, criminals have a higher number of children than the rest of the population. Bad boys average around 3.0 offspring in their lifetimes, while in America the average for whites is 1.75 children, well below the 2.1 needed avoid demographic disappearance. A finding published in a study of human evolution and behavior reveals:

Criminal offenders had more reproductive partners, were less often married, more likely to get remarried if ever married…Importantly, the increased reproductive success of criminals was explained by a fertility increase from having children with several different partners.

So, statistics once again confirm the old adage of Alpha fux, Beta bux in the mating game. Perhaps this is why women’s instinctual behavior has traditionally been considered evil in the world’s religious documents. These instincts literally lead to criminals outbreeding civilized nice boys. If you want a society in which the majority of children are sired by criminals, by all means continue to denigrate patriarchy and live under the Law of the Jungle.

9. The state has replaced the role of the Beta male in society. The hamster views this as every female’s right to screw bad boys and have children with exciting men who aren’t BORING contributors to society. Big Daddy Government will clean up the devastation wrought by her poor choices in Anglo America, and use Beta male tax money to pay for the children a bad boy fathers with her. After all, as Hillary Clinton puts it, It Takes a Village, not a family. Feminism has resulted in a nation in which women have monopoly on all legal rights but few, if any responsibilities.

For example: A woman has an affair on her Beta provider, initiates divorce (4 out of 5 divorces are initiated or caused by women) then is awarded cash and prizes in the form of the house, child support, and alimony by a family court system that is biased against men. Or, option B, she has children with a destitute bad boy and gets abandoned but the government tit is waiting to be suckled; it picks up the tab with social programs. Either way, women can’t lose, which in tandem with emotion-driven, bad boy loving decision making renders good men worthless to them.

8. Increasing numbers of sexless Omega males are going on shooting rampages. The hamster says 4 out of 5 men are just not good enough. The rest of us live with the consequences of sexually disenfranchising millions of men, like sexless men simmering in the background of society until they eventually blow their top. A few examples:

Eliot Rodger killed 7 and injured 14 when he went on a rampage in Isla Vista, CA. Rodger was an incel (involuntarily celibate) Omega male who claimed he went on the shootings because of his frustration over not being able to find a girlfriend and his hatred of women.

James Holmes of the infamous Aurora, CO theater shooting and Sueng Hui-Cho were also sexless incel men. Sueng Hui-Cho couldn’t even get an escort to do him.

While this in no way justifies their violence, it is a byproduct of a male-hating culture and the sexual disenfranchisement of an increasing number of men. Men who do everything society tells them to do often end up sexless and alone.

However, proving the insanity of the Rationalization Hamster, once Omega males have committed a heinous crime and become media celebrities women then chase after them, reinforcing Fact 10: Criminals end up with more sexual partners than nice guys. Just look at James Holmes’ prison cell and all the fan letters and photos from hot chicks he now receives.


James Holmes was sexless while he was a nonviolent member of society but pursued by women now that he is in prison, confirming another unpleasant fact about female sexuality and psychology

7. Decreasing civility in society. The hamster does not care about civility, it only wants excitement. Decreasing civility is easy to see in American society, and it is a direct result of instincts that reward bad boys with lots of sex and punish good men with incel. Whether it be degenerate pop stars relentlessly rubbing their GrrlPower in men’s faces or women increasingly covering themselves in tattoos or slutting it up every weekend at the club until they’re 65 years old, the effects of de-civilizing feminism can be seen everywhere. Some interesting statistics:

  • 94% of all Americans consider the general tone and level of civility in the country today to be a problem
  • 65% believe the level of civility is a “major” problem

This really should come as no surprise as no society in history has abandoned monogamy and restrictions on female sexuality and remained cohesive.

6. The appearance of the Pareto Principle or the 80/20 rule in the sexual market. The hamster would rather be part of the harem of an Alpha than the one and only of 9-to-5 Johnny. Well known in the business world, the Pareto Principle also applies to today’s sexual market in which generally speaking 20% of top men dominate 80% of the attention and sex from women. One study revealed almost no single women have gone without sex in the past six months, while nearly half of single men reported having no sex in the last six months. Helen Smith, PhD demonstrated this phenomenon with her own survey in her book Men on Strike. Alphas and Sigmas monopolize the majority of female sexuality:

There were 141 male responses and 14 female responses. In order to more meaningfully calculate the income and partner averages, I threw out the top five and bottom five male outliers and the top and bottom female outliers.

The 80/20 rule is largely substantiated. Even if the outliers aren’t included, the 20% (27) most sexually successful men had sex with 617 of the 921 women involved, or 67% of them.

The missing 13% from Smith’s survey can likely be attributed to the very top echelon of Betas, or incomplete statistics. So, as with many things in life the sexual market is totally unfair. Adapt, or go without. The hamster does not rationalize reason in the female brain, it is driven by pure emotion.

5. Women will do anything to keep an Alpha male around, no matter how degenerate he is. The hamster says, oh but it’s not his fault, or (even better) he’s going to change once my maternal instincts show him the error of his ways.

There is a scientific process at work in the recent 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon. A powerful jerk manipulates and controls women, then has violent, denigrating  sex with them. How do women respond to his depravity, albeit importantly, the depravity of a wealthy, powerful man? Scores of them foam at the vag lips all the way to the bookstore and turn 50 Shades of Grey into a pop culture phenomenon. If trailer park Johnny performed the sexual escapades in this book he would likely end up in prison, but women turn a blind eye to abuse when men have money, power, or better yet, both. Explaining why women do this all comes down to this statement from the American Psychological Association.

In an evolutionary sense, women want superior genes.

Women view manipulative, controlling, and often violent men as dominant men with superior genes. Elite Daily further illustrates this concept:

All mammals, including humans, are designed to adapt for survival. If you’ve ever watched Animal Planet, you’ll recognize a pattern in the mating habits of everything from hippos to lions; the dominant male, the “alpha,” is the most desired and mated with by the females. Why? A dominant male means a successful romp in the mud, and that still holds true today. Just as men are subconsciously influenced by a woman’s waist-to-hip ratio and what it says of her fertility, women are attracted to a man who exudes confidence and power, with the assumption that he’ll make a better lover and therefore be more reliable in producing offspring with strong genes.

There is no negotiating female desire. This desire will lead them to hamster rationalize even the worst treatment by men, even abuse as we will see in a moment.

4. Women will sacrifice a lifetime of commitment from a Beta male for a random fling with an Alpha. The hamster says the Alpha interloper made me feel like you haven’t made me feel in a long time! How many times have we seen women destroy marriages, which represented a lifetime of financial and sexual commitment from her Beta provider – tossed aside for a fling? Personally, I lost count of how many times this happened to friends of mine. This behavior is genetically coded into females, and indeed in nature the male is disposable in most species. The female black widow spider even consumes the male (eats him) when the mating act is finished. Sperm is everywhere in nature, and eggs are precious and few.

The human species attempted to balance the scales a little and give males a role in society by enacting cultural policies of monogamy and punishing infidelity (especially female infidelity). The West now wants to have it both ways, male commitment without any reward. All our present-day problems stem from this issue. Men will only tolerate being shit on for so long before there is a collective uprising.

3. During ovulation, a woman is more likely to conceive with from a random fling with a bad boy than her regular Beta partner. The hamster says well, just this one time doesn’t count. Oh, he shot a load in you? Well that doesn’t count either. In the real world, scientific tests of what type of men women find attractive have shown women prefer more masculine traits, and features which make men look dangerous especially when they are most fertile. As revealed by Live Science, referencing an evolutionary psychology study done at the University of New Mexico:

“What we found was that, indeed, women who are with less facially masculine men — so more feminine men — they’re the ones showing a shift toward men other than their partner,” Gangestad said. For instance, while ovulating, women were more likely to have sexual fantasies about a non-partner.

The findings fit with the theory that men who are more masculine would have produced fitter offspring in the ancestral period when reproductive hormones first evolved.

“Things that may have been important ancestrally may not be all that important now, but the idea is you see the preferences that would have evolved ancestrally still show up,” Gangestad said.

They also prefer darker, meaner personality traits when they are ovulating. Brain scans of women have also confirmed areas of the brain dealing with risk assessment light up when women are presented with men who have a threatening appearance when they’re about to drop an egg down the Fallopian tube.

Consequently, an ovulating female tingles with desire when she sees a bad boy and later he tingles when he reaches orgasm with her. Then the poor Beta Bucks bastard gets to pay for the resulting offspring. Some studies tell us as many as 1 in 10 (or more!) fathers are raising children they think are there own, when in fact they’re biologically another man’s spawn.

2. Women are biologically wired to lust after violent men. The hamster says just because he beat up his other girlfriend doesn’t mean he will beat me up. Or, this time will really be the last time he gives me a black eye. This explains why women not only put up with, but often pursue relationships with abusive men. It explains why criminals like Charles Manson have groupies and orgies while the guy who studies hard and “does the right thing” often ends up jerking it alone in his bedroom.

It also explains the Chris Brown/Rihanna fiasco. Legacy media “journalist” Diane Sawyer bent over backwards to kiss Rihanna’s behind after she got beat up (remember, in Anglo-America women are ALWAYS the victim, even if they make terrible choices). Rihanna sobbed:

I was bleeding, I was swollen in the face. So there was no way of me getting home, except for, my next option was to get out of the car and walk. Start walking in a gown, in a bloody face.

What did Rihanna do after being set off in a nightgown with a bloody face? Go right back to the man that did that to her years later:

Rihanna [said] that [Chris Brown] is the “first love” of her life. The songstress also says she “feels” for the rapper.

See, you can beat the shit out of a woman and she will love you more than the guy who maxed out his credit cards and mortgaged his house to buy her things. Feels are to women what the Law of Gravity is to the rest of the Universe.

1. A dominant man gets more puss than a go-along, get-along nice guy. The hamster says yeah that nice guy is cute but this badass really turns me on. This concept relates to the Five Types of Men in the Social-Sexual Hierarchy. Some guys have all the luck, while others beg for table scraps. Estimates of how many sex partners each type can expect roughly break down like this:

Top 20% of Men

  • Alpha: 2-4x average sexual partners
  • Sigma: 2-4x average sexual partners

Bottom 80% of Men

  • Beta: 1-1.5x average sexual partners
  • Gamma: 0.5x average sexual partners
  • Omega: 0-0.25x average sexual partners

So what is the average number of sexual partners? The University of Michigan found an average of 31 partners for men and 9 for women. Men are likely to overestimate the number, and hamster rationalizing women (not surprisingly) are likely to underestimate the number of sexual partners they have had. As has been said before, Alphas and Sigmas cannot walk outside without falling into puss. Up next is the reason why women find them so desirable…and it reveals more uncomfortable truth.


Women select for the Top Dog in the sexual market; in the past the survival of her offspring depended on it

The Badass Wins the Day

Once again, we prove nature comes down to the heartless business of nature saving those heredities that work, and rejecting those that don’t, as stated by astrophysicist Carl Sagan. What heredities work? In short, having or being able to approximate these traits will make you irresistible to females:

  • Narcissism
  • Machiavellianism
  • Psychopathy

Being in love with yourself, being manipulative, and being an uncaring, aloof, unsympathetic jerk will make you go far in life with women. This may not conform to our preferences, but our preferences don’t count in the real world. Only the truth. That is what taking the Red Pill is all about.

Survival is everything in nature, and to the female, the roughest, toughest, baddest boy has genes that will survive nature’s cruelest tests (and her own shit tests). Manipulating these urges using The 10 Laws of the Mating Game is the end result of feminism in a radically altered sexual market. If more civilized behavior is desired, the society must go back to traditions which were set up in the Bronze Age and have endured over 2,000 years for a reason.

The hamster won’t like it, but the alternative is to literally live like animals.
