Philip Francis Queeg: Rent Party: Philip Francis Queeg: Rent Party: Men have been doing it since we first left the cave to kill a giraffe. For women, it's kinda new.

So yeah, we understand that if we work harder, we have access to more resources, which in turn provides benefit to our progeny. The sacrifice we make is that we are unable to spend as much time providing for the immediate needs of said progeny.

What women are biatching about having to do in order to have a career is simply "just what men do." Give them 100,000 years of hunting water buffalo and I'm sure they'll figure it out.

Yeah, for all those thousands of years women have just been sitting around eating bon bons and watching soap operas. The poor little things just can't comprehend working harder for the benefit of their progeny.

No one has suggested that (well, except you now). It's simply pointing out that biologically different gender roles are going to lead to different gender expectations within the broader society. That is being changed. For men, it isn't a change at all. For women it is.

Women today aren't "working harder" they're "working at something entirely different than they used to."

No, you didn't suggest that, you stated it outright.


If you're going to lie about what I said, you aught to at least remove the words you put in my mouth, don't you think?

yeah that boggled my mind too. Women, historically and currently in many parts of the world today, and ESPECIALLY in hunter/gatherer societies, actually did the bulk of the work.

This idea that women should not work outside the home, or labor to support the family, is actually pretty new (and it didn't last long, and even while it lasted it only applied to the wealthier classes).


So now there's two of you making shiat up.

What I said.

"Historically, men and women have had differing gender roles that are changing with modern times. Women, being new in a gender role long occupied and understood by men, should fully understand what it means."

What you said I said:

"Women don't work at all, and sit at home eating bon-bons."

Couple of liars. Goddamn.

Philip Francis Queeg: BunkyBrewman: No. Their mistake was (and still is) trying to convince half the population that you can have everything.

You can't. There are compromises you will have to deal with if you want a successful career.

Why is that only true for half the population? Can the other half have everything?


Feminists don't try to convince men that they can have everything, they assume that they already can.

Of course, that's a lie as well. I'm senior management at a large Bank - myself and my peers spend very little time with our families. I also don't expect my boss or the business itself to continue to pay me like they do if I worked 30 hours a week, especially since there are literally dozens of equally intelligent men who would murder someone for my job.

You can say, "Well that's not the way it should be" until you're blue in the face, but so long as someone out there is willing to out-compete you, then denying employers to opportunity to reward that competitiveness is just tyranny of another kind.

Well if we're gonna go that way and you're going to be a fully ignorant lying asshole, then OK. No one said women don't work harder (well, except you now, twice). I said they work at different things. That is an undeniable fact.

I'm really sorry I took you seriously, though. You're obviously too dumb to know better. You're absolutely correct, though. Men and women have had the *exact* same gender roles throughout history.

unregenerate: At one time, one adult could support a family with a wife and three kids on one salary. Now it takes two adults, 3 ignored children and the housework is now split between the two. So now you have two people working full time and sharing the other responsibilities in order to get by and still have rotten little farkers of children. I don't care which adult works, but it does in fact suck that now it takes even more work to get by than it used to. Good luck on raising a family on one income nowadays.


True, but at that time, there was no cable tv, no internet to pay for, no cell phone, one car at best... If we lived like that, we could get by on one salary.

quoinguy: Enjoy driving to work in that really cool Lexus RX, eating lunch out every day, struggling to make it to the take-out place in time to pick up the kids from day care, and wonder why life is so hectic when you JUST don't have the time to go out with your friends more than a few days a week. It's almost like those pesky kids need so much attention and take so much money and time to raise. It's really putting a cramp in your hair salon, workout, and business attire shopping schedules.

Seriously. I work with many females who fit this description to a tee.


You work with terrible cliches, not actual people. That's odd. These terrible cliches, what are their husbands doing all day long? Drinking martinis and having affairs with their secretaries?

Not to derail the thread, but why do people want to have kids so badly? If you have to spend all your time working to support them which results in you neglecting them and hating your life for working yourself to death, why bother with having them in the first place?

I guess I have yet to hear a compelling argument for having kids other than the you'll regret it if you don't line or you'll want them when you're old so you're not alone when you die both of which are selfish arguments.

I just don't get it, but I guess I'm just one of those people that haven't gotten bit by the baby craze bug.

Actually, no, we can't. The cost of basics: food, clothing, housing, medical care, transportation, etc... have skyrocketed. It's the luxuries that have stayed relatively affordable (mainly due to cheap Chinese manufacturing).

Not all "people" do. Only one of my siblings has any children and the rest of us either don't want any, or have very little prospects to mate in general.

That being said I'm getting to an age where it'd be REALLY nice to have someone else mow the lawn or vaccum the carpets. If I'd had a child in my 20s they'd be getting old enough to do that right about now. But no, we have to do it ourselves. (sigh)

meat0918: It's the fact dinner isn't ready when I get home. The audacity of it had some of my older (and divorced, lol) coworkers flabbergasted.

And what exactly is wrong with little muffins with pink icing? Or scones, or brownies?

I'm gonna brag a bit now, but I do get a lot of praise from women, married or otherwise. I try not to cause trouble, though women asking their husbands "Why can't you be more like meat0918?" has gotten me in a small bit of trouble with some of my married male friends.

//But even the praise feels like they are praising a kid for counting to potato, I.E. not sincere.


I dunno, maybe it's because I'm both poor and single and most of my friends are likewise, but I just found it weird that anyone would find anything strange in you cooking. Tossing something in a frying pan is the first thing I do after walking in the door most days, same with most of my friends.

And pink-icing'd muffins are little girly food. Scones, however, are manly as all hell, so I guess it balances out.

Especially if you put honey on them. The most manly ingredient, stolen directly from the lair of deadly, stinging creatures that will kill themselves just to cause you pain.

//I have had girlfriends that were forbidden from touching the pans, and my roommate couldn't microwave a cup of water without setting the house on fire, so I see where you're potentially at, though.

Feminists don't try to convince men that they can have everything, they assume that they already can.

Of course, that's a lie as well. I'm senior management at a large Bank - myself and my peers spend very little time with our families. I also don't expect my boss or the business itself to continue to pay me like they do if I worked 30 hours a week, especially since there are literally dozens of equally intelligent men who would murder someone for my job.

You can say, "Well that's not the way it should be" until you're blue in the face, but so long as someone out there is willing to out-compete you, then denying employers to opportunity to reward that competitiveness is just tyranny of another kind.

Typical Republican attitude. Women shouldn't work. Except my wife. Because that's different.

All of you who are laughing at the thought of Frothy winning the nomination and facing off against Obama need to remember three things.
1.The American public is mostly not focusing on the presidential race yet, by the time they do this will be old news, and may not be brought up again.
2.The Republican party will mostly vote in lockstep for who ever wins the nomination. (as long as they pass the purity test which Frothy does, Mitt not so much). The establishment Republicans may want Mitt but they will vote for Santorum over Obama everyday of the week, the Social Conservatives want Santorum.
3.Frothy is bringing up issues to appeal to the Blue Collar Democrats Link (new window) he maybe able to peel some off, do you think Mitt appeals to blue collar voters?
Operation Chaos 2, be careful what you wish for.

quoinguy: TheMysticS: unregenerate: At one time, one adult could support a family with a wife and three kids on one salary. Now it takes two adults, 3 ignored children and the housework is now split between the two. So now you have two people working full time and sharing the other responsibilities in order to get by and still have rotten little farkers of children. I don't care which adult works, but it does in fact suck that now it takes even more work to get by than it used to. Good luck on raising a family on one income nowadays.

We've done it, but we certainly can't keep up with the Jonses.


We're doing it, and also cannot keep up with everything the Jones's are doing. But we're happy.

/And the Jones's are a-holes. Never put their garbage cans away after pickup.


Exactly.
Assholes.

Rent Party: Philip Francis Queeg:
So tell us why that is the woman's problem more than the man's. Are you not equally responsible with your wife for the care and raising of your children? Would you give up work to save your kids from the horrors of daycare?

Why do you think it isn't a man's problem? Men understand the sacrifices that you have to take to have a career. We just don't biatch about it, or act like it's unfair.

"Yes honey, I know I don't spend as much time at home as you'd like, but someone has to pay for the home, and ensure you get to eat every day."


I haven't seen you around here before. Allow me to introduce myself, I am a Farker, and I enjoy videogames, cats, and pointing out to everyone when I've found a dipshiat.

Everyone, guess what, Rent Party is a dipshiat.

Rent Party: fearthebunnyman: Philip Francis Queeg: Rent Party: Men have been doing it since we first left the cave to kill a giraffe. For women, it's kinda new.

So yeah, we understand that if we work harder, we have access to more resources, which in turn provides benefit to our progeny. The sacrifice we make is that we are unable to spend as much time providing for the immediate needs of said progeny.

What women are biatching about having to do in order to have a career is simply "just what men do." Give them 100,000 years of hunting water buffalo and I'm sure they'll figure it out.

So now there's two of you making shiat up.

What I said.

"Historically, men and women have had differing gender roles that are changing with modern times. Women, being new in a gender role long occupied and understood by men, should fully understand what it means."

What you said I said:

"Women don't work at all, and sit at home eating bon-bons."

Couple of liars. Goddamn.


Sorry buddy, but if you read your whole quote, and not the part you cherry picked out, that's sure as shiat how it came across.

Women have already been "doing what men do". Some times, and in many places, throughout history and the world, even more so.

Your post in no way made you seem aware of that. quite the opposite, in fact.

Rather than getting pissy though, you could have just clarified.

Raoul Eaton: As an old and dear family member once said, "we wouldn't be having all these unemployment problems if it wasn't for women taking the men's jobs."

////He said that to my mom
///When she was a single working mom
//After my dad deserted us.
/She had the grace to laugh at him and get the Best Revenge.


What is the best revenge? Being successful and watching him die slowly?

What? You mean something he wrote in a book is relevant to being able to judge what kind of person he is?

That's funny... In 2008 the liberals held this position...

Obama's books were in no way, shape, or form any indication of what kind of person he was and why are you even bringing them up? It's probably because you're a racist, that's it, a racist, because there's absolutely no way that anything he wrote in a book is important right now, just quit talking about them because they're not important, oh and you're just a racist. You should just listen to what his plans and goals are for the future instead of focusing on the past.

Why do liberals seem to depend on people having no long term memory about liberals past statements or behavior?
