Competition in the Free Market Breeds Conflict
I was reading “A Century of War: Lincoln, Wilson & Roosevelt”¹ and I suddenly remembered of a question to which I don’t have an answer: “Why women slut-shame other women?”. I could not help but draw a parallel between slut-shaming and war for economic reasons:
Female subject X discovers that female subject Y gives sex to approaching males “easily”, that is, for a low price – low in comparison to the price that X asks for her sex service. X then procedes to slut-shame subject Y and uses charge of puerility  against males that bought Y’s services.
The North (Union) discovers that the South (Confederates) imposes low tariffs on imported goods, that is, the South sells his central government services for a low price – low in comparison to the price that the North asks. The North then refuses the secession right and incites  a war.
This leaves me with the hypothesis that slut-shaming is an act of war for economic reasons.
Keep calm and don’t shoot the messenger, if you have any knowledge on this subject, please, leave your comment bellow.
 The target is accused of being immature and/or irresponsible in some manner that reflects badly on his status as an adult male. Examples: “Grow up!”, “You are so immature!”, “Do you live with your mother?”, “I’m not interested in boys. I’m interested in real men.”, “Men are shirking their God-given responsibility to marry and bear children.”².
 According to revisionist historians¹.
