10 reasons not to date “woke” women (if you want to be successful in life)

10 reasons not to date “woke” women (if you want to be successful in life)
8 January 2020

Who you hang out with, date, or marry has enormous effects on all aspects of your life. I am saying this with the most positive possible connotation. There is vast potential in it for you if you manage to date the right person.

I have had relationships where we elevated each other and jointly created a force field that neither one of us could have had by themselves. Outside of all the general joy that this brought me, I also learned how having the right partner can bring a real boost to your personal development, your career, and your business.

Sadly, it also works the other way. Both from my own experiences and observing others, I know how bad choices in dating can leave you falling short of your potential. This can come in the form of merely foregoing opportunities, or in the form of going out with someone whose presence is actively pulling you down. The latter is something I admit to having done repeatedly during my 20s when I didn’t know any better. Sadly, no one teaches you these things in school, and you only realise a lot of it when you look back and reflect.

Getting ahead in life while having a great time is a subject that my blog takes an interest in. That’s why I long had ideas bouncing around my head for writing this article. I am keenly aware, though, that my publishing of an article on this subject is a recipe for disaster.

Before I divulge my all-important, wisdom-oozing listicle to you, let me give you a very quick rundown how this article came about and what its ground rules are. For you, this will provide some useful additional context. For me, this will reduce the toxic fallout that I am inevitably going to face after hitting “publish”.

I was warned never to write this

As one of my male friends told me: “I can’t see a single good outcome from you writing about dating.”

Luckily, I have friends who give me honest advice.

Most of the mainstream media is “woke”, which is why they won’t tell you what I am going to reveal to you today.

I also happen to have a pretty diverse set of friends. Any viewpoint and orientation feature among them, and I regularly make use of this diversity to pick the brains of a wide range of people.

The following article is partially the result of my conspiring with six of my female friends. They very kindly reviewed my article draft and contributed their thoughts.

Two of them are “woke”.

Four of them hate “wokeness”.

The former I used to get critical feedback and test my own BS.

The latter primarily helped me define the positive potential and the under-utilised opportunities that lie in dating a kind of woman who has not been getting enough attention in mainstream media. Most of the mainstream media is “woke”, which is why they won’t tell you what I am going to reveal to you today.

The resulting article is for men only, at least for the most part. Women may still read it, particularly those who are looking to improve their ways. Though primarily, I wrote this article for men in their 20s and 30s. It summarises the stuff that, in retrospective, I wished someone had told me at the time.

Before I get to the list, we need one final definition of a term.

What are “woke” women?

Unless you have spent the last few years living under a rock, you’ll have at least a vague idea what wokeness refers to.

The Urban Dictionary defines woke as “the act of being very pretentious about how much you care about social issues.”

Describing a group of people based on a single term is always asking for trouble. Generalisations are by definition just that, and exceptions make the rule. However, for the sake of defining an overall direction of travel, it is not that difficult to narrow down a practical definition of woke women.

You will probably have found yourself a fine specimen of a woke woman if she:

  • Triumphantly posts on social media that she has just signed an online petition (which will really, really change the world).
  • Regularly attends kumbaya-style, feel-good conferences such as SXSW or TED (nothing beats getting affirmation from your own tribe).
  • Reads The Guardian – and only The Guardian (because she feels only that gets her “real news”).

Terms that are closely related to wokeness are “liberalism”, “left-wing”, and “progressive”. These terms are all cousins of each other. Where one stops, and the other one begins, is fluid in the eyes of most people who are not themselves part of these different strands of ideology. It’s not entirely unreasonable to use them all interchangeably. I picked “woke” for the headline because the term has in recent months already started to become the butt of thoroughly deserved jokes. But I could have just as well chosen any one of the other terms.

The opposite of a woke woman would be a conservative woman. I have spelt conservative with lowercase “c” because it’s not about holding a membership card of the Conservative Party in Britain or a Republican Party membership card in the US. A conservative woman is simply more likely to care about traditional social institutions in the context of culture and civilisation. She will generally stand for individual rights, civil liberties, and the order provided by nature, rather than for regulation, big government, and social engineering. Again, for this article, this is good enough a definition.

In metropolitan areas, woke women have long been making up an overwhelming majority of the young population (18-40). Starting in the 1970s, the education system has simply turned out a large number of young people who are taught woke principles from an early age onwards. Also, they have been disproportionally visible because they are so outspoken and have such a strong ally in most of the corporate media.

E.g., not only is Megan Markle’s wokeness off the charts; you can barely open a newspaper or magazine without coming across a story about her latest (self-proclaimed) virtuous deed. Her friends in media adore writing about her because doing so is, in turn, yet another form of woke virtue-signalling.

Surely for any man who seeks both a great companion or a companion at all, woke women must be a Grade A choice?

To which I say: Not so fast, young man!

Here are my ten reasons for not dating woke women, assuming that getting ahead in life and having the best experience is among your priorities.

1. Conservative women are scientifically proven to look hotter

I know that I am onto something when even The Guardian agrees with me.

In this instance, The Guardian and I are only separated by the choice of words used to describe something that several scientists have published studies about.

An article published by the Cambridge University Press gave it a scientifically accurate, but not very informative headline: “Effects of physical attractiveness on political beliefs.”

The Guardian lambasted it as: “Attractive people more likely to be rightwing, study finds”

The Washington Post, for once, chose a relatively neutral headline: “Conservatives really are better looking, research says”

Different semantics for different forms of publications aside, the underlying notion has actually been known for a long time.

Conservative women tend to be better looking by conventional, traditional standards.

Dating a woman who is widely seen as good-looking by conventional standards will not just boost your ego.

You can fill an entire book with the underlying dynamics and stats, but the key reasons can be explained pretty quickly.

Conservative women tend to like traditional beauty; they are more likely to take responsibility for their body, health and looks, and they enjoy coming across as feminine.

The hardcore members of the woke movement make rejection of traditional femininity a prerequisite for its members. Just think of it, their movement popularised the idea of modelling their looks based on a non-binary mixture of 143 genders.

Go figure.

Dating a woman who is widely seen as good-looking by conventional standards will not just boost your ego. It will also change how most other people perceive you. It’s scientifically proven that people who are beautiful by conventional standards do find it easier to get ahead in life. Now make that “good-looking2” because not only are you taking good care of yourself, you also have a real piece of arm candy as your girlfriend/fiancé/wife. You’ll make an incredible impression when entering a room. That’s the force field I mentioned in my intro.

Obviously, if you have a fetish for women with nose piercings, massive tattoos, or shaved heads, then my advice is unlikely to work for you. Fair enough and each to their own.

However, for everyone else, all the clues are there.

(After reason #1, do you even need any others?)

Psychology Today

97% of all scientists agree (and everyone else is a Hotness Denier).

2. She will have a more diverse circle of friends and more interesting viewpoints

It’s widely known that woke people (of both sexes) have a stronger tendency to surround themselves with people who share their views.

Evidence for this predates that fateful year 2016 (since which any statistic will be even more tainted by political preferences than pre-2016 stats). E.g., in an extensive study carried out in 2014, 44% of those the study called “consistently liberal” had unfollowed, unfriended, or blocked someone on social media because of differing political views. Notably, no other ideological group (!) showed this high a rate of blocking out different viewpoints.

There are so many examples for this trend having become even more accentuated since 2016, that I won’t bother with giving any more details.

I leave it with a recent statement from Piers Morgan, who has always considered himself a liberal: “Liberals have become pathetically illiberal.”

Why does it matter for you? Not exposing yourself to opinions that challenge your existing beliefs doesn’t just make you a dull person, it will also eventually lead to you falling behind professionally. Do you really think you can get ahead in life if you run off into your Group Think safe space each time someone doesn’t share your world view?

Honing your mind produces the best results when it’s done on the back of mixing your knowledge with a lot of entirely different viewpoints. The more diverse the opinions are that you expose yourself to, the more robust your positions become.

Would you want to date someone dull and stagnant because new thoughts are blocked from entering her life?

How would such a choice reflect on you?

What would it mean for the quality of your social life?

The more diverse the opinions are that you expose yourself to, the more robust your positions become.

It’s obvious what you need to do. Beware of the woke women. They are more likely than others to live in an echo chamber, which is both boring and counter-productive. Picking a less challenging partner is easy, but a sign of weakness. Doing so has been popularised by the woke crowd through slogans like: “Never kiss a Tory”. Longer-term, this isn’t going to do you any favours.

3. She’ll be more optimistic and happier

One of the poster girls (erm, “poster humans”) of the woke movement is Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, the Democrat Congresswoman representing the Bronx and Queens. She is probably most famous for having said that the world will come to an end in eleven years. Climate change, you know.

Neither Ocasio-Cortez’ statement nor the position of the climate change movement needs to surprise anyone. Throughout history, politicians and rulers with a lust for absolute power and control of resources have evoked end times to make the Lumpenproletariat succumb to their power grab. Nothing is as effective for making the masses comply than the threat of everyone dying if they don’t do as they are told. I have seen several similar attempts during my lifetime – none of this is new or surprising. There is a long history of scientific claims getting vastly exaggerated to support authoritarian measures, to get government research funding, or simply to be liked by your peers.

Where this becomes your problem, is if the girl of your choice genuinely believes in the woke movement’s climate hysteria.

  • Going on that fantastic trip together? You can’t because that will destroy the planet and end human life!
  • Saving for a pension? We’ll all soon be dead soon!
  • How about having a family together? How dare you even think of creating more Earth Killers.

A conservative woman in comparison:

  • Will likely realise that you can still have a burger and get on a plane without triggering imminent doom.
  • Will want to save up with you to create a happy retirement as the crowning end to your lifelong success in work and business.
  • Is more likely to believe that human ingenuity will continue to solve the pressing problems our planet faces, as it has always done. The environmental movement simply does not have a good track record for creating scalable solutions to large problems, whereas technology firms do. While the issue is being worked on, you can have a perfectly normal life within reasonable limits.

You attract what you give off yourself. Optimistic, happy people with a can-do attitude have long been known to attract better things in life overall. I take them seven days a week over pessimistic, unhappy folks that doubt human ingenuity and brilliance.

Once again, all the clues are there.

Which one of these two options would you rather have at your side?

4. Woke girls have no sense of humour

This point is particularly ironic to write. After all, it used to be conservatives who were supposed to be the stuffy ones!

In a twist of fate, the situation has turned by 180 degrees.

Being woke has always been a by-word for being “politically correct”. Few people remember or know of this, but the very term “politically correct” started as a joke term in the 1970s. Today, it is aimed at protecting anyone and everyone from feeling offended by anything and everything.

Offending and pointing at inconvenient truths is at the heart of comedy. However, this collides with the woke world’s constant offence-seeking for the sake of feigning outrage and virtue-signalling moral superiority.

Optimistic, happy people with a can-do attitude have long been known to attract better things in life overall.

A woke girl will view comedy as something that has to make her feel satisfied with herself and her beliefs, rather than to be funny. Watching late-night comedy is not anymore about getting laughs; it’s about getting applause for repeating approved, woke viewpoints. Turn on the TV, and you’ll realise as much.

Besides that, she’ll express outrage at anything that could offend the virtually endless list of victimhood groups that her spectrum of politics has created out of thin air. The class of protected victims nowadays includes people with webbed toes, and parts of the woke crowd now even take offence on behalf of plants. Virtually anyone can nowadays claim to be a member of one victimhood group (or two). The latest twist in this trend are the efforts in Britain to turn veganism into something that gets the same level of legal protection as religion.

As a result, there is little left that one can poke fun about without risking the ire of the woke movement’s activist division, aka Outrage Inc. The staff members of Outrage Inc. are the kind of people who set up Twitter campaigns against anyone who they feel has strayed from the approved narrative. They will campaign to ensure that you lose your job; that your company’s products are boycotted, and that your entire life gets cancelled. “Cancelling a person” has become an actual part of today’s vocabulary thanks to the woke movement.

If you want to live in a post-humour world, go ahead and find yourself a nice woke girl. As one of my female contributors put it in her feedback notes: “She will be offended by virtually everything you say, and she will take the time to let you know!”

Good luck entertaining that dinner table of normal people that you are looking to do business with. Once your woke girlfriend has turned you into the woke weakling that she desires to have at her beck and call, everyone will think of you as a right old bore.

5. Conservative women are more likely to have a real job

I found absolutely no statistics or scientific articles about this point but did want to include it because it matches observations from my milieu.

Looking at the spectrum of woke women I have met recently, they mostly worked in:

  • Cash-strapped NGOs.
  • Struggling social enterprises.
  • Government bureaucracies.
  • Cousins and hybrids of afore-mentioned groups, e.g. “Quangos”, ESG departments of corporations, and woke-approved corporate media outfits.

In comparison, my conservative female friends mostly work in:

  • World-class finance and law firms.
  • Owner-operated businesses in areas with real consumer demand.
  • Fast-growing enterprises in tech, life sciences, and similar sectors.

Obviously, that’s a generalisation, but one that I find hard to ignore. I see it happening around myself, and contrary to the woke crowd, I do have a very diverse set of people around me.

Also, the former mostly latch on to junk science, such as the so-called gender pay gap, to support their sense of entitlement. They believe in equality of outcome rather than in equality of opportunity. These women have both feet firmly in the socialist camp, though often without realising it because of their lack of broad education following their attendance of woke university campuses.

The latter mostly work their arse off and make lots of hay because they are good at what they do and spend the extra hour(s) in the office.

Women who feel entitled because of their sex are fashionable and celebrated in woke media. Still, they are quietly derided by anyone who works based on results, data, and common sense. There is a growing movement among companies and managers who still have their wits about, to not hire them (I will dedicate one or even several articles to this subject in upcoming posts).

Given the climate of fear and outrage that the political correctness brigade has created, few will dare to say so in public. Going out with an entitled woke girl is increasingly seen as terrible judgement. Still, most folks won’t tell you that for fear of raising the ire of Outrage Inc. Where the woke movement did succeed – if only temporarily – is to create an atmosphere that leads to self-censorship.

Women who feel entitled because of their sex are fashionable and celebrated in woke media. Still, they are quietly derided by anyone who works based on results, data, and common sense.

It’s also likely to weigh on your wallet. Conservative women are more likely to have a good job and be on top of their finances. In contrast, woke women are more likely to be looking for someone who can pay for their self-help group’s therapeutic yoga trip to Bali.

Conservative women are also more likely to have agency, which in turn reduces the amount of negative stress that is trickling down from her life into yours.

I have made many a dating mistake in my life, and would not have been able to write this article as recently as five years ago. Today, however, I’ll take a successful business owner over a climate change NGO employee any day of the week.

6. Woke women have an above-average rate of mental illness

One of the significant advantages of having been around for a bit (I am now 44), is that you have some actual life experience to look back on.

It recently dawned on me that virtually all mentally ill women I ever knew fell into the category of woke/liberal/left-wing/progressive.

When discussing the draft of this article, I told one of my female friends: “Not all woke women I knew were mentally ill, but almost all mentally ill women I knew were woke.”

“Is there any research to back this up”, she asked?

I had a good look around search engines, and the two most relevant results I found were from 2009 and 2013, respectively.

These studies may seem a bit dated. Still, they have the advantage of originating during an era when not everything was as heavily politicised as it is now.

The 2009 Gallup Poll from the US reported that 58% of Republicans claimed to be in excellent mental health. In contrast, only 38% of Democrats said the same of themselves.

The 2013 survey done by Buzzfeed and SurveyMonkey concluded that Democrats had a 1.5 to 2.0 times higher occurrence of depression, anxiety, attention deficit disorder, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

If anyone has found any further research on it, I’d love to see it.

The details of such studies are complicated. E.g., people on the woke spectrum will claim that they are simply more intelligent and more sensitive. In contrast, their counterparts on the other end of the spectrum are, obviously, thick-skinned brutes. Put another way, American Republicans will not know that they are mentally ill because they are too dumb to realise – that sort of argument.

I was wondering if I should include this particular point without doing more research on it. Based on what I have observed throughout my life, I figured this point is solid enough to go in. Having seen what I have seen, I have concluded that taking the risk of ending up with someone’s mental illness on my hands is a much more significant a risk if your dating strays into the woke women spectrum. Why risk it if there are lower-risk alternatives? And don’t fall for wanting to “help” them, because people can only save themselves.

I admit to having thin evidence to present, but I do with all my heart advise to at least take caution and pay sufficient attention to this point. Do educate yourself about any and all potential risks in this regard. E.g., does she have a tattoo on her forearm? It could be a sign of being into self-harm, and having put the tattoo there to prevent herself from doing it to a visible body part – that sort of thing. One cannot be careful enough! I have seen way too much of this stuff.

7. Judicial destruction of your life if the relationship goes wrong

“Destroy his life, make him go through hell!”

I am paraphrasing from memory, but this was the message an ex-girlfriend of mine told her female friend over the phone when hearing of her marital break-up. I listened to it while we were in the same hotel room. Back then, I hadn’t heard of wokeness. In retrospective though, she was one of the more woke girls I ever had a relationship with.

Overhearing this phone conversation contributed about one third of my reasons for subsequently breaking up from her instead of taking the relationship further. Even at my then relatively young age, I was not entirely ignorant to signs of potential forthcoming trouble. I couldn’t have put it into concrete reasoning, but my instinct served me well.

Woke culture has a whole plethora of unpleasant aspects. You are well-advised to keep these aspects out of your life:

  • Entitlement culture, i.e., seeing him as an ATM because she deserves it.
  • Cancel culture, i.e., the desire to destroy anyone who doesn’t agree with the Gods of Wokeness.
  • Men as replaceable sperm donors, i.e., cutting him out of her life if a relationship or marriage that produced children goes wrong; and using family courts that have been infiltrated by supporters of third-wave feminism (look up the term if you don’t know what it is!) to achieve this end.

Some things don’t work out and its occasionally necessary to move on from something. Though if you are dealing with a woke girlfriend or wife, you have a higher risk of finding yourself in a situation where the rest of your life becomes very difficult because she feels you deserve punishment.

With a more even-headed conservative girlfriend or wife, this is less likely to happen.

There are never any guarantees for anything in life, and things can go badly with anyone. However, more so than ever before, I will carefully choose who I let into my life. Making mistakes in this regard could mess up your finances for the rest of your life, or even worse.

8. Don’t get dragged into the pitiful double-life of woke hypocrites

Woke women are the most fervent virtue-signallers of them all.

But don’t take their words to mean anything.

Just because she incessantly posts about social justice issues on Facebook doesn’t mean that she applies any of it to herself. The long-standing motto of her side of the political spectrum is: “Do as I say, not as I do.”

For her, it’ll be climate change postings on Facebook today, and that wine tasting weekend trip to South Africa tomorrow. If she can, she’ll be delighted to fetch a private plane ride to Davos to lecture the rest of the world about the importance of flight shaming. She will never question any of this herself. One of the amazing things of the woke movement is that both logic and shame have been banned from their planet – at least in their own mind.

The best thing about social media is that few things stay hidden anymore. During the past few years, the public has learned about the real face of our virtue-signalling politicians and celebrities. Their stock prices are in freefall.

One trend that this has led to is the increasing active disdain for anyone who still lives the woke hypocrite way. It’s become too obvious to most people that woke hypocrisy is an insult to peoples’ intellect. One day, I would love to write an article that analyses why this group does believe the BS they are spewing out on a daily basis, even though much of it is akin to telling the world that one plus one equals three.

Another trend it has led to is the increasing appreciation of a genuine, authentic way of living with imperfections and saying as much.

Fancy surrounding yourself with someone whose tribe is known to be soaked to the bone in hypocrisy?

Or would you rather have someone who values authenticity?

How will the answer to this question touch on the various aspects of life that make you read up blogs like mine?

I leave it to you to judge.

Though once again I say, all the clues are there.

Celebrity meme

Just about sums it up.

9. Appreciating that men and women make for a perfect team

There are few regrets I have in life. One of them is that it took me until my early 40s to realise what a bunch of amazing girlfriends I have had in the past. Some of them made for great teams and could have made an even greater team had I invested more time and effort (which I didn’t for a range of reasons).

I have come to see the wrongness of my ways in terms of under-appreciating that a well-working male/female relationship is an incredible asset to have.

Woke women seem to have moved further in the opposite direction.

  • Fancy having a child? No man is required for that. Never mind the fact that growing up without a father is the single most reliable social indicator for a child failing in life. The main thing is that she can feel empowered and “woke”. Screw the consequences this will have on anyone else.
  • Building your career? There is a lot to be said in favour of having someone backing you up in your endeavours, in all the ways that a healthy relationship can do. Obviously, “girl power” doesn’t require that. She’ll break that glass ceiling “all by herself”; after all, there are gender quotas nowadays to achieve that for her regardless of her qualifications or effort.
  • Having company in the evening? Her three cats will take care of that.

I have had the best of times when in a happy relationship, and these also always contributed to my getting ahead in business and life in a variety of ways.

One of the New York Times’ woke contributors once headlined: “Men, who needs them?”

By now, I feel sorry for the women who fall for all this garbage. I am also old enough to have a fair few female friends who fell for this earlier in life and now regret it.

But I will also very happily not have any one of these woke women in my life, except as a friend to keep my social life exciting and diverse.

10. Conservatism is the new counter-culture, and wokeness is “lamestream”

I reserve the right to occasionally amend my opinion and to latch on to exciting new trends when the old ones have run out of steam.

The entire woke, do-gooder scene once was an exciting group to spend time in. I once worked for an environmental NGO, and it felt good at the time. However, the times they are a’changin’.

Edgy culture nowadays comes almost exclusively from the conservative end of things. Folks on the other end of the spectrum can’t try out anything new anymore because they are too afraid to risk offending anyone.

Looking around my social circle, I spot mostly conventionality on the side of the woke crowd. When I say conventionality, I don’t mean this as a compliment.

The conservatives are now the ones who are pushing boundaries and who make things lively as well as engaging.

Edgy culture nowadays comes almost exclusively from the conservative end of things.

I don’t want to have dull conventionality at my side. I much prefer someone who occasionally steps outside of the safe zone and pushes the envelope a bit further. I expect that this will help me, too, in my strides towards making leaps forward.

The woke movement tries hard to be seen as young, but it’s already grown rather old. The small “c” conservatism, on the other hand, is feeling increasingly rebellious and exciting.

Your anti-woke girlfriend is much more likely to tick at least a handful of the boxes listed under points 1 to 9 – and how exciting a prospect is that?

Finally, pay attention to supply and demand

Come to think of it, some of the hottest and most attractive women I know are conservatives living in big cities that rank among the Citadels of Wokeness. That’s places like London and New York.

And their ranks are growing, especially among younger generations:

  • Generation Z (born 1996 to 2010) have repeatedly been reported to be the most conservative generation since WWII. The details are controversial and complex, not the least because the old left/right terminology doesn’t manage to capture their views accurately. However, based on my observations, there is a lot to that statement.
  • Over the past three years, I have seen a lot of millennials turn conservative because of what they witnessed happening in UK and US politics. Woke culture has become its own enemy, and people are turning their back to it in droves.
  • Given that conservatism is the new counter-culture, it’s increasingly seen as cool to switch sides. Who needs more than that? Don’t forget that politics is downstream from culture.

At the same time, more men than ever have been beaten into submission by woke culture. Just take a look around large cities, and you’ll notice what a large percentage of men has even taken on emasculated looks. Being anything but heterosexual is incredibly fashionable nowadays, not the least because it also moves you up on the victim hierarchy, which in turns promises privileges and handouts!

It has long been known that with increasing age, both men and women are more likely to turn conservative. The new aspect in all this is the fact that YOUNG conservative women are a growing trend.

Conservative women increasingly need magnifying glasses to find the remaining men who are straight and strong enough to stand up to woke culture. I doubt many of these conservative hotties will start dating gender-fluid social justice warriors with rainbow-coloured tattoos across their face and angel wings inked onto their back. There is a highly attractive, growing part of the single female dating market waiting to be (re-)discovered, and it now goes across all age groups.

There is a broad spectrum to this, e.g., you could find that a “liberal” from the Midwest of the US is more conservative than a “conservative” who is based in New York. There are no absolutes with any of this.

It’s all up to you to explore and make use of.

What else do you even need to know?!

These are my observations, and they are based on a combination of anecdotal evidence, personal experiences, and scientific research. I have yet to find any current studies where the overall phenomena is broken down in more detail. From my perspective, though, it’s all reasonably self-evident if you aren’t going through life with both eyes closed.

Which boils down to:

  • There is a growing number of conservative women with very desirable traits.
  • There is a decreasing number of men who make a viable partner for them.

The numbers are working in your favour if you are a straight, conservative man. That’s simple supply and demand, which adds a useful quantitative aspect to the qualitative issues listed out above.

I’d even go as far as saying that if you play your cards right, this is now the most exciting segment of the dating market to thrust yourself into.

Or maybe we’ll soon see a trend where it becomes “in” (and perhaps even, “woke”) for a woke person to date a conservative person – as the ultimate form of virtue-signalling what a good person they are?

No doubt it’ll all stay interesting during the coming years.

What are your observations? These are complex issues. I am always open to change my opinion based on better evidence/arguments/insights. If someone spots mistakes in my article or contributes aspects that I had not previously been aware of, then I am keen to hear them. Unlike the woke crowd, nothing triggers me.
