Bye bye 2017. Now 2018, soon it is, and I’m preparing myself for a Hostess-job at the “Party like Gatsby – The Mad Mansion” New Years Eve Party in Vega, Copenhagen.
2017 has been a very special year for me, for better and for worse. At the same time its have been said that woman speaking out changed 2017, and that might have lead to a permanent shift, where chauvinism is more threatened than women and minorities, who don’t fit White Supremacy Patriarchalism. Lets hope so. Time magazine dubbed 2017 the year of the silence breakers, as powerful men who misused their power were brought down by the women they’d wronged. Especially The #MeToo Campaign has been very powerful and empowering.
In Denmark, beside of men misusing powerful positions like The Zentropa founder Peter Aalbæk’s distorted defense of a sexual assault culture as a prerequisite for the creation of great cinematic art with bullying and humiliations, involving spanking, it has also been a year of murder and bad double live-chases.
The Danish politician Per Ziedler committee chairman of the family and institutional committee in the municipality of Syddjurs, who also stood up for election with his son, backed off when he when it was revealed that he was involved in sex orgies in a public hall to renter, where paid young was “shared” by 16 men. What a family man, and view on women (madonna-whore complex) to pass on to his son.
“Why is it always a white man going into space? Why is it not a woman entering that rocket?” The murder charged danish inventor Peter Madsen once asked himself in a interview and answered:” Roughly speaking, because no women want to.” Sense the chauvinism? I do. And Peter Madsen who had a wife and videos of women getting executed on his computer, and the life of Kim Wall ended, has got to get his own TV show-case, before the case has even ended.
In modern psychology, Machiavellianism is one of The Dark Triad -personalities, characterized by a duplicitous interpersonal style, a cynical disregard for morality, and a focus on self-interest and personal gain. In that case, be aware of men who likes to identify them selves with dictators (Donald Trump too, even if they are “joking” about sharing his believes and view on women and minorities) and believe in Totalitarianism like Communism they tend to romanticize and see as necessary, especially the part of the “need of the strongest mans dominance” in every matter. Peter Madsen has said he had a year-long fascination with Nazi Germany’s leading rocket scientist Wernher von Braun. And I speak from experience.
Men with traits in them are literally firemen, also in situations where it is very wanted and very satisfying (need I say more?). But suddenly they either can’t or won’t control it, and in impulsively anger/by mistake thread, harm or end you, when the mask falls off and Mr. Hyde arrives. (I guessed I have broken some silence too).
But Machiavellianism is not all of it.
The Dark Triad is a subject in psychology that focuses on three personality traits: Narcissism, Machiavellianism, Psychopathy.
People scoring high on these traits are more likely to commit crimes, violence, murder, harrashment. If men very likely some kind male chauvinist/misogynist secretly or openly.
All three dark triad traits are conceptually distinct although empirical evidence shows them to be overlapping, associated with a callous-manipulative interpersonal style, along with all their charms.
Add mental illness, personality disorders, alcohol, substances, and psychoses and you got a bomb to explode every minute even more.
- Narcissism: grandiosity, pride, egotism, perceived superiority combined with intolerance to criticism, a lack of empathy and a sense of entitlement.
- Machiavellianism: facile social charm, manipulation and exploitation of others, and a focus on self-interest and deception, deceitful behavior aimed at undermining others, a cynical disregard for morality.
- Psychopathy: high impulsiveness, low or absent empathy, selfishness, callousness, interpersonal hostility, heartless attitudes and remorselessness, sometimes also known as Sociopathy: no respect for the law, rules or social norms, a pattern of antisocial behavior and attitudes. (some divides these two terms sociopathy and psychopathy, but as overlapping two. I share that believe).
The most powerful tendency underlying all three Dark Triad traits is said to be the knack for exploiting others.
It’s typical Dark Triad-Personalities to feel a eager to be some kind of Dark Masters, viewing most situations as win-or-lose, highly driven, focused, ruthless, loving a drama and psychological games. To lose a woman for a dark triad man is to lose property and respect, a big part of his game.
To know The Dark Arts can be very useful. When we inform more about their nature and dark psychology, they won’t rule the world and play others too easily. I have my dark traits too and 2017 has been the year where I learned to use them in constructive ways..
2018, I’m ready for you !
May The Dark Era Of The Dark Triad Misogyny be over..

The silence is over, Man. Treat the ladies, and everyone else like a gentleman at all times, if you are cool!
