women's morality
Morality is a varied field, and we can view women’s morality in quite different ways... depending on which of 5 branches of morality we use.

Note: this article is part of a discussion on female morality among experts who view the subject through different lenses. In this article, Part 3, Alek Rolstad introduces five different moral paradigms that can be used to view female morality.

Hey, guys. I am aware that I don’t usually discuss theoretical stuff that is not directly related to the field, but I decided to take some liberties today.

Recently, Hector Castillo wrote a post on “women not caring about morality” that some of you may have loved, hated, loved to hate, or hated to love. There is no doubt that subjects related to morality may be seen as controversial, triggering a variety of feelings in different people. Chase also weighed in on the subject with his own article in response to the heated debate brewing in Hector’s comments section.

In regards to ethics and the philosophy of morality, there is no such thing as full-blown truth. Ethics is a subfield of philosophy, meaning it is less likely to contain the types of truths you’d find in science – as philosophy is not science. Philosophy is the process of discovering truth, and for this reason, we have decided, in light of good old Socratic tradition, to learn through debate. By presenting multiple takes on the matter (Hector, Chase, and now me – so far), we hope to give you more arguments to fuel your reflections and hopefully contribute to your reaching a (more) solid conclusion – if you ever reach one at all.

What Hector points out (that descriptive ethics is more fact based compared to normative ethics) is very true. However, there is still some normativity within descriptive ethics. As mentioned, descriptive ethics devotes itself more to “how people act” rather than “how people should act” – the latter going into the field of normativity. However, in order to discuss how people actually act (what kind of moral sentiments and drives they possess), we need to define one of the key variables. Namely, what is “morality”? If we want to discuss the observed morality of women, how we define morality will have a key impact on our discussion.

Now, how we define this variable will have a crucial impact on our observations. This is where my critique mainly flourishes.

I will cover my criticism step by step, and like Hector, I will add references to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, which is considered a very credible source. This way, you can read more on the different theories if you happen to find this interesting.

Before I get to my arguments, I do want to make it deadly clear that there are no rights and wrongs – only good arguments. Hopefully, my arguments will be as convincing as Hector’s and, in the end, help you solidify you own.

Why treat women as though they're from a different species? It's mindsets like this why women don't trust men, especially of the PUA mindset.

Women are different from men - this is both caused as a result of biology, but also the social environment. That is a fact.

In regards to morality, the points made in this thread are not inspired by any "pua mindsets" but rather official critics of normative ethics made by scholars (including the feminist critic and many others).

This is a starting point if you want to know more - which covers more in deph many of the points made in this post:

Love your article, Alek. Great balanced perspective to Chase and Hector as well.

Both Franco and I also made note that your article addresses an important misnomer in the world today - which is that women choose from and follow their emotions, whereas men are logical and practical. That is the mainstream point of view. The sexes are in fact the opposite - women while seeming emotional are in reality extremely practical in their decision making and focus on the ends, whereas men overall are dreamers, romantics and idealists.

I'll quote Franco: "I'd go as far to say that men are more inclined to follow their emotions toward idealism. But when things don't work out, they're more adaptable to the end result. Women, on the other hand, are MUCH more practical than men in day-to-day decisions, BUT, they also take it more personally and get hurt much more when they DON'T achieve their desired outcomes. So it's almost entirely the inverse. Women are way more practical than men, while men are way more idealistic. HOWEVER, if men discover their ideals are wrong, it might send them for quite a loop, but they'll adapt. But women, if they don't achieve their goals derived from practicality, will get SUPER depressed momentarily. Until they are able to pick themselves up and try again."

Hey man. thank you for the nice comment.

I think you are very right. This is probably why women are more comform to social rules, as it helps them fit in the social reality, allowing them to navigate. However, once the ties changes, women will usually swap fully and follow the new code. It is also a tool for them to gain social support and be accepted within a community. This is something key for her survival.

Men however are more stubborn ("a man of principles").

When reading this I realized that several women I was a beta orbiter to would flaunt their interest in other men in front of me, but I now realize that while they ignored me, they did not actually make out with the other men.
However, some time ago I had realized that while I saw myself as a beta orbiter, they saw me as an aloof alpha, and were trying to make me jealous.
