The Role of Major Histocompatibility Genes (MHG) in Mating
Research conducted in the 1970s by University of Liverpool psychologist Dr. S. Craig Roberts revealed that immune genes may have a “powerful effect in terms of how well relationships are cemented.”
Dr. Roberts found that women who are not under the influence of hormonal birth control naturally choose men with dissimilar genes, while women on the pill experience a shift in preference toward men who are most similar to them in MHC genes.
Women who begin taking the pill before they decide to marry will be attracted to men who share similar MHC genes. Once she marries and stops taking the pill (when she decides to have a child), she may find that she becomes disinterested in the spouse she has chosen, preferring a man, instead, with dissimilar MHC genes.
Similarly, women who do not take the pill before choosing a husband, and then begin taking the pill after they are married may find that they become disinterested in the spouse they have chosen, preferring a man, instead, with similar MHC genes.
Sexual partners who share MHG have been shown to form relationships in which…
- The woman is more likely to be less sexually responsive.
- The woman is more likely to refuse sex.
- There is a reduction in the ability to pair bond.
- There is a tendency to have more sex partners, and to cheat.
- The woman has a greater difficulty conceiving children, has fewer children, and less healthy children.
This does not spell success in a marriage.
Most of the Red Pill community is operating under the assumption that hypergamy as we now know it, is what hypergamy has always been in the past. But Dr. Robert’s line of research tells us that hypergamy may be greatly aggravated by the pill, as it apparently limits the agency of women. If true, which it most likely is, that would make birth control even more evil than we previously believed, as it results in poor mate selection, and has altered society for the worst.
The Pill Disturbs Pheromone Sensitivities
To explain the biological logistics of how women choose a mate, this article in Scientific American (feat. Melinda Wenner): Birth Control Pills Affect Women’s Taste in Men (2008 December 1) discussed how synthetic hormones change desire in women—and their choice in a mate.
“It’s all about scent. Hidden in a man’s smell are clues about his major histocompatibility complex (MHC) genes, which play an important role in immune system surveillance. Studies suggest that females prefer the scent of males whose MHC genes differ from their own, a preference that has probably evolved because it helps offspring survive: couples with different MHC genes are less likely to be related to each other than couples with similar genes are, and their children are born with more varied MHC profiles and thus more robust immune systems.
A study published in August in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, however, suggests that women on the pill undergo a shift in preference toward men who share similar MHC genes. The female subjects were more likely to rate these genetically similar men’s scents (via a T-shirt the men had worn for two nights) as pleasant and desirable after they went on the pill as compared with before.”
“A study published last year in Psychological Science found that women paired with MHC-similar men are less sexually satisfied and more likely to cheat on their partners than women paired with MHC-dissimilar men. So a woman on the pill, for example, might be more likely to start dating a MHC-similar man, but he could ultimately leave her less sexually satisfied. Then if she goes off the pill during the relationship, the accompanying hormonal changes will draw her even more strongly toward more MHC-dissimilar men. These immune genes may have a “powerful effect in terms of how well relationships are cemented,” says University of Liverpool psychologist Craig Roberts, co-author of the August paper.”
This article reports that the regular use the pill has the effect of shifting a woman’s sense of pheromone receptivity. This means that besides blocking the ability of women to sniff out mates who are most biologically compatible, they are also bonding with good smelling men who are not good matches genetically. Part of the problems with infertility in couples may not be just late marriage but also genetic incompatibility caused by this blockage.
The Folly of Forming Relationships in a Hormone Altered Emotional State
In a separate essay, we looked at How the Pill Changes the Brain and Emotions of women on the Pill. These changes also lead to a metamorphosis in their mating behavior.
It should be well noted here that women choose their partner (or partners) according to their emotions and intuitions, which are greatly influenced by their hormonal state.
There are enormous biological changes that take place during sex and women’s physiology is far more sensitive to these changes. Women have ten times the amount of the pair bonding chemical oxytocin, which works to keep them emotionally attached to any man they have sex with. But when a woman starts taking the pill, or stops taking the pill (when she decides to have a child), her emotional constitution, and by extension, the relational structure, are no longer the same as when she was off or on the pill respectively. When a woman starts taking the pill, she becomes attracted to men whom she would not otherwise be attracted to in her natural hormone state, leading her to make a very poor choice of a mate. When she comes off the pill, the woman’s natural hormone balance and emotional state eventually resumes, leading to a change in her feelings and desires. These hormonal changes cause her to feel dissatisfied, and even annoyed with the relationship she chose while under the influence of the hormones supplemented through birth control medication. These changes inevitably invite catastrophe to the relationship.
The following characteristics exhibited by women under the influence of the Pill are summarized here.
- Poor pair-bonding with their partner(s).
- Lower libido.
- Dissatisfaction with their sex life.
- Less monogamous sex.
- More likely to cheat.
- More likely to have a larger number of intimate partners.
- More likely to form relationships filled with drama.
- Prone to clinical depression.
- Less likely to have children.
In sum, the pill wreaks havoc on relationships.
There are 16 million women in the US between the ages of 15-45 (the reproductive range). Over 80% use hormonal contraception. That means 80% of women capable of reproducing are on an unnatural hormonal cycle. This affects them emotionally, physiologically, and psychologically.
Moreover, the availability of contraception, Plan B, abortifacients, and the reduced stigma for abortion and single motherhood affects most modern women. With the hyper majority affected by the pill, it’s fair to say that there is a difference between female hypergamy (in a state of nature) versus female hypergamy as it is affected by the pill. If a woman doesn’t realize her hypergamic instincts when choosing a mate, but is then faced with this biological drive after marrying and coming off the pill, then this imposes catastrophic consequences on the marriage.
It may seem like an insurmountable task to significantly reduce the number of women on the pill, but any progress that is made in this endeavor will allow more women to avoid a chemically altered hypergamy, and return nature back to normal. This may be more important to society than we might imagine in realizing the joys and permanence of marriage.
This information presents modern men a significant opportunity to avoid a catastrophic marriage. If men add “no hormonal medication” to their list of vetting qualifications, then this can weed out women who are falsely attracted to them because of hormonal perturbations.
Women, avoid the pill! Your overall satisfaction in your relationships will be severely reduced, because it will cause you to be attracted to men who are not suitable genetic and biological matches for you, and you will miss out on a lifetime of joy and contentment that would have otherwise been possible if you had chosen the type of man God naturally intended you to have.
Men, avoid women on the pill! Men who are vetting women should avoid women on the pill altogether, because the feelings she elicits, and the structure of the relationship is under the influence of the pill’s hormones, and so she cannot present herself in her natural, true state of emotion. In other words, it causes women to become inadvertent liars – liars in the sense that the emotional and psychological state they present to you while on the pill does not reflect their true, natural emotional constitution. If you marry such a woman, it will lead to inevitable catastrophe once she stops taking the pill.
Parents, if you love your daughters, don’t ever put them on the pill!
God’s way is best.
