There’s a science fiction novel by Larry Niven called World Of Ptavvs. The back story of it is that 1.5 billion years ago there was a slave empire run by aliens called the Thrint. The Thrint were not very intelligent and had poor skills with tools. The only reason they could create a slave empire was because they had telepathic abilities that could allow them to control other aliens which the Thrint called “the power”. On the Thrint homeworld, the Thrint’s telepathic abilities weren’t anything special. Since the Thrint weren’t intelligent, the only reason they were able to create an interstellar slave empire was because other aliens had sent manned probes to explore the Thrint homeworld. The Thrint were able to take control of the aliens that visited their homeworld via “the power”, and that’s how the Thrint were able to get their interstellar slave empire. The Thrint pretty much never invented anything on their own. Sometimes a Thrint would be born without “the power”. Those Thrint were labelled Ptavvs and sold into slavery or murdered. The Thrint empire was destroyed by a slave rebellion led by other aliens called the Tnuctipun. While the slave rebellion was successful to a point, the Thrint decided to create a mega amplifier for “the power” where they telepathically forced everyone to commit suicide. All that’s left of the Thrint in modern times are some creatures descended from them called Grogs whose telepathic powers are so minimal as to be effectively harmless.
The Thrint, their “power”, and the Tnuctipun are metaphors for the world today. Women are like the Thrint in that their singular “power” is their ability to manipulate men. Beyond that they can’t do anything else. The equivalent to the Tnuctipun are MRAs and MGTOW. The one difference between women and the Thrint is the myth of female hypoagency. All the aliens conquered by the Thrint knew that they were being enslaved by the Thrint. On the other hand many men don’t know they are being ruled by women because of propaganda that says women have no agency.
One of the things those of us opposed to misandry need to do is create a “world of ptavvs”. In other words, we have to nullify women’s power to manipulate men .
