Brainsick: Heh. What are your odds of getting laid by one of your motorcycles tonight or getting a smile out of your paid-for house simply because it loves you?

Richard C Stanford: Yes, PacMan fever, bootleg liquor, and pin-up gals are keeping our younguns from popping out the next generation of conservatives to fight the Soviets, and it's all the homosexual-communist's fault. Do your duty: be a slut who doesn't use any of that commie birth control.

lockers: If this thing is real (ignoring the gay baiting explanation) then I am okay with it. Just keep leaving them to us older guys. We will totally ruin them for you so you can have the damaged goods.


Haha, jokes on you! We're already damaged!

Because family law means that if your marriage fails, you're 2/7ths of a dad AND destroyed financially, where at least if you are a woman, you're destroyed financially, but you still have your kids.

It isn't gay dudes, they always want to play WiiU, and I'm like "ZombiU sucks, I'd rather play GTA V."

Unless we're talking about gay dudes with PCs. I would hang out with them based on our apparent shared love of Civilization, at least based on the small sample size of gay, PC-game playing dudes that I know.

What were we talking about again?

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Benevolent Misanthrope: Because they've grown up in an era of poor discipline, poor parenting, and instant gratification, coupled with the fact that either they've accepted the fact that they will never get laid, or that women will fark them without them having to buy the sex with financial stability.

Next question.

well yeah. But saying that Gays taught them that hanging out with other guys is more fun then women is more entertaining.

buzz kill.


"MAH SON IS HANGIN' OUT WITH OTHER GUYS 'CUZ OF TEH GHEY! Now, I'm off to Bubba's house to watch football, hunt, and drink with the guys, without a woman in sight!"

/And maybe watch sweaty guys in nothing but Speedos punch and grab at one another.

Every time I hear Lydia say "I'm sworn to carry your burdens" in that whiny voice I think "Jeex, that sounds just like Michelle, that girl who farked over Niko" and I think "No way am I marrying that biatch". Plus Lydia is really hard to hang with; she steps on every trap and runs off to fight at the slightest provocation, gets between me and the target, you name it, so no way am I getting married to her.

You liberals aren't going to convince her she's wrong using rational arguments.  You need to use her own logic against her.  Try the following:

"I might agree that a man should be obligated to provide for his family... but only if it's equally mandatory for women to remain thin and pretty and never disagree with a man.  What do you think?"

She can't agree to those conditions, being a quarrelsome hambeast, but she can't disagree without pointing out flaws in the "traditional" family arrangement.

Fart_Machine: OgreMagi: Truman Burbank: There's also those who aren't opposed to marriage, but will never even get to discuss it since what few women are in their lives are more concerned with the packaging than the contents. Hell, "fleeting sexual encounters" would be a big upgrade in the social life of a lot of guys.

Your typical online dating ad proves your point.  They usually start out with "I'm a down to earth girl" (whatever the fark that means) "looking to date a regular, honest guy."  Then they go on to list a host of requirements which include "financially stable"  (lots of money) and "good looking" (you better have the abs of Thor).  I've seen fat women profiles insisting on "a hot guy".

/bitter because I'm ugly

People use current untouched pictures on on-line dating sites? I thought the standard was something from 10 years ago that was in soft focus.


That's my other complaint.  Women use pictures that are 10 years and 50 pounds old.  I guess my mistake was using a picture less than a year old.

Another complaint.  If you are fat, you aren't curvy, biatch.  Body sizes are the second most lied about aspect (after age) in dating profiles.

Mike Chewbacca: commisioner: Personally, it's the horror stories about divorce, the unfair treatments in the courts and how if I were to get married, I'd likely lose everything I've spent my life building that puts me off marriage. Well that and people telling me I HAVE to be married to be happy. I'm farking happy now how is the threat of losing everything gonna make that better?

Yeah, it's a pretty safe bet that if you go into a marriage assuming it'll fail, it'll fail.


If I jump into a raging volcano with the expecation that I will die, I will probably die.

I hope that you're not saying that playing Civilization makes you gay, because I love that game and I really can't afford a divorce. My kids would be pretty disappointed too.

My ex got hooked on drugs, cost us about $40,000 while we were married, and STILL got the court to take me for 6-figures in the divorce.

I now have money, freedom, and women 10 years my junior chasing me on a daily basis.  Fark marriage.

Without a powerful ideal of masculinity that points men toward marriage and fatherhood, more and more young men are deciding the hard work of becoming marriageable is not worth it: Porn, beer, video games with the guys, freedom and fleeting sexual encounters are good enough.

Yup, my poor discipline, poor parenting and love of instant gratification has led me to a life where i have my own place, a good job and, falling into the second of your options, a good sex life without the obligations that historically come with it.  And I'm not being snarky, I agree with your root argument, but I'm happy, too, so at least there's that.
