FTA: But what if the dearth of good men, and ongoing battle of the sexes, is - hold on to your seats - women's fault?

You'll never hear that in the media.


... except in this front page Op-Ed on one of the three major US news network's websites, but that's not important right now.

Also, lol at the picture:

Sounds like we just need to require permission from their husbands or fathers before voting. Or driving.

/fark you, Fox. You'd be more at home in the Middle East than here.

Uh.....huh. That's a lot of assumptions on the author's part. It's in men's DNA to protect and provide? Ummm....yah....suuuuure. Becuase it's been my observation that, regardless of DNA, men are often conditioned to dominate, not protect. To control, not provide. Many patriarical societies that emphasize male dominance and female submission are incredibly abusive to their women as a matter of culture.

I have known men that shouldn't be allowed to decide wallcolor, much less make ALL decisions for an entire family. And I have known women so strong and so formidable they are a force of nature. Why in the hell should those strong women be forced to submit to lesser men (or visa versa for that matter). Each relationship should be a unique partnership with agreed up on roles and responsibilities and an overall cooperative gestalt. But roles should not be dicated by society at large. That's rediculous.

Ohhh, you poor, poor men. Those uppity women, making 3/4 of what you do on average, taking on most of the household management duties after working the same number hours you do, getting all independent and not letting you "be a man". Never mind that she has to go earn because your slack ass can't afford to be the sole provider. She ought to be happy in poverty, so you won't feel threatened.

Jesus, guys. Just get the fark over it. If you can't compete, that's not our fault.

Competing in a relationship is thermonuclear war; the only way to win is to not play. If you can't find a way where you can both succeed, then it'll end up destroying you and everyone around you.

fta: In a nutshell, women are angry. They're also defensive, though often unknowingly.

Suddenly reminded of an old Matt Groening bit from Life In Hell here.

He: I have a theory about why men and women can't seem to get along, it's because all men are stupid and all women are crazy.

She: That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

He: Well you don't have to get all crazy over it, it's just a theory.

*She leaves in a huff

He: Still think I was onto something there.

/From memory, not verbatim.

fta: Fortunately, there is good news: women have the power to turn everything around. All they have to do is surrender to their nature - their femininity - and let men surrender to theirs.

Good news everyone! Overly simplistic anti-feminist chick has figured it all out!

Another way to look at it, was when men were REQUIRED to be sole breadwinner- they made enough money to support their families.

Poor people- who were required for both to work, the man was berated for not being man enough to support his wife.

My experience has been women always pining for bad boys and dominating men. Or worse- men child who's Peter Pan existence makes them fun, yet flighty enough to keep the woman on her toes caused he fark anything.

...the share of women ages eighteen to thirty-four that say having a successful marriage is one of the most important things in their lives rose nine percentage points since 1997 - from 28 percent to 37 percent. For men, the opposite occurred. The share voicing this opinion dropped, from 35 percent to 29 percent.

Believe it or not, modern women want to get married. Trouble is, men don't.


Apparently, the cutoff point between an entire gender "wanting to get married" and "not wanting to get married" is somewhere around 32 or 33% I did not know that.

But these is statisticals. This are serious science.

Next up on Fox: why white men have it so rough these days because they aren't allowed to own black people.
 
2012-11-25 09:19:27 PM  
It hasn't been easy to get where we wimmenfolk are now, and equality is still somewhere on the horizon. To insinuate otherwise is misguided, at best. I think it's only fair that men change, too. That being said, most men I know *have* changed, and accepted this still-evolving role of women (or didn't need to change to begin with).

It seems self-evident that men and women should all get an equal opportunity in life, however their talents best serve them and each other. That's all. The fury raised at such a notion drives me crazy.

tl;dr version for the knuckle-dragging neaderthals who are still out there: Tough titties.

If some farkette's willing to bring home the bacon so that I can keep house (2 hrs work per day), keep kids (another 2 hrs per day), and watch television do my dream-job-at-home for the remainder(4hrs per day), I'm perfectly willing to discuss marriage.

Just FYI. In case anyone's looking. . .


Seriously -- women these days, they have it made. They're socially "expected" to be stay-at-home wives and mothers, but if they take a career - more power to them!
Men? Well, if we're not taking home the bacon, we're a farking failure and need to turn in our man cards. Why would you even marry such a failure of a man? What are you, a closet lesbian?

Equality's cool. Gender-ism, one way or the other, ain't.

What's the best way to overcome not having a dominating bone in your body (i.e., being a chickenshiat)?

I understand this mindset exists and that, from an evolution (and psycho-sexual) perspective it's successful, but I seriously don't get the whole power play and poon-hunting psychology. It's clearly still a very strong part of social and sexual relations, even if the writer of TFA and other right-wing he-man are so inept it doesn't work for them. I just never got it on any level.

It seems that the more men talk about how much they want to "protect" and "provide for" and "put on a pedestal" women (basically, any p activity that doesn't involve penis), the more they tend to be rigidly locked into gender roles to an unhealthy extent, and create an environment where women are given no choice in the matter for their own ability to care for and protect themselves. It dehumanizes and limits the very people it claims to treat well.

I'd love to drop all pretext of games and just wear a t-shirt that says "Cooks, Does Laundry, Gives Head, Votes Democrat."

Okay, allergy medicine clearly acting weird on my brain thinking.

The so-called dearth of good men (read: marriageable men) has been a hot subject in the media as of late.

Nothing personal, but if you cant find a "good man" to marry you, and you have looked, try looking at the common part of the equation. YOU

YOU are the problem, not the lack of good men. Have you thought for a second that the good men are avoiding you? or that you are avoiding the good men? or both??

Oh, THIS biatch - Phyllis Schlafly's niece.

I think there's a vast, nearly untapped sea of socially awkward but genuinely caring and generally good people out there who would make good significant others, but whose awkwardness precludes their activity in it. We need to find a way to get them out and into the social and sexually active population.

the good thing about the internet is that online dating has increased their chances of ever getting laid.
It is funny that the missing "good men" is really a problem with some women looking for perfect or unrealistic and then articles being written about them.

plus the idea that your perfect mate will exactly what you want ...
PLEASE spare me
The reason that your BF doesnt want to hear about your 300th shopping trip is THAT IS WHAT YOUR GFs are for. You dont want to hear about sports, why should he want to hear about your "stuff"??
