The wall is undefeated. 18-26/27 max in the West and even then 27 is a push. Beyond 27 the bio-clock is going crazy, their friends are getting married, they become desperate and move into settling-for-your-boring-ass mode and resenting you for the rest of your life for doing so. Brothers, at 27 she has already invariably in the West been sexually active since 15, that is, 12 years of sexual activity.
I agree with your overall statement, and particularly buzzer-beater women resenting the fallback beta males they end up settling for, but the delusion is strong and the propaganda is even stronger. And, at least in the "modern" urban/hipster/yuppie/whatever circles I run/ran in, their friends aren't getting married either so they don't really have that push either. "30 is the new 20" has been pushed for so long a lot of women don't even think about settling until they're entering their late thirties, long after any man of even middling quality would consider them as potential wife and mother material. It's sad, honestly. A lot of women in my generation are entering the slow-motion-suicide phase of their lives now and trying really hard to cope and it's just very clearly not working.
