Women are becoming rapists too? Damn rape culture.

Pffft. I call shenanigans. If I were to act like a man, I'd be getting off more than twice a day.

Can't be that women are just doing things like being leaders or anything.
We need a longer, dumber name for them now.

That would be a counter claim, actually.
Wherein woman behave rationally, sensibly, and accountably should be a reason for the success of more marriages.

Unless marriage itself is irrational as a universal goal.

One site tells me to date like a man ... another site tells me that being like a man will make a relationship fail. I'm just going to do what I usually do which is hang out with my cat.

So women are now sitting on their sofas, drinking beer and beating off to the cute news anchors with the low cut top?

if you just want to get laid, dating like a man will work exponentially well.

if you want a relationship with a man, dating like a man will get you laid.

Ah, that's another good one.  Recently sat through multiple seasons of Fry and Laurie on Netflix.  Great stuff especially considering the limitations of the two-person format, those guys are great writers and have great chemistry.

Low Maintenance women = women who act like men.

Thats why hot low maintenance women RARELY make it out of HS or college with out a guy scooping them up. They are rare and wonderful

For the majority of us we just have to hope the first guy is an ass and you can nab her after the divorce and she is still in her 20 - 30s.

well, you wanted to have all the benefits of equality... now you have to deal with the down side.

I'd like her to study the roomate. My theory is she cant keep a guy because she is an obnoxious drunk coont.
 
2014-04-03 03:05:06 PM  
She says women are increasingly competitive and combative, acting more like men while men are becoming more bewildered, not knowing when, where or how to act like one.

This is a popular meme in the Loser Men's Rights community.  People have been complaining about this forever.  It's like the "nowadays kids act like this" and "society is breaking down" memes.  It says more about the holder of the opinion than the target of the opinion.

Same as it ever was.

Damn, I'm taking this way too seriously.  It reads like an Onion Article:

Ms Granger says there are four different types of women and it's important for couples to recognise and accept their masculine and feminine traits and to balance them accordingly.
Which type are you?



SPOILER:  all four types of women are bad.

"...while men are becoming more bewildered, not knowing when, where or how to act like one. "

Women must change the way they behave because men are too stupid to. Got it.
 
2014-04-03 03:24:00 PM  
People generally act in their own best interest.  We live in a society where, for a lot of people, a long term monogamous relationship isn't in their own best interest.  It's not a bad thing.  In a lot of ways it's good.

your post needs more wailing about the "patriarchy" and how saying "hello" to a woman is just as bad as rape.

TL;DR
Conclusion: women are getting harmed by lack of enforced gender roles
Evidence: some female stereotypes.

That is the most worthless piece of shiat article.  Sorry, regressives, you're not going to win the academic fight against feminism.  The strongest tool in your "academic" toolbox is barely understood evolutionary psychology, and it's totally undercut by genetic diversity.

Yeah... I somehow doubt that a woman would write this... villainous leader vs virtuous doormat vs gold-digger?? Really?

It seems like something a really bitter man would write, the kind who can't even get a woman to be his *friend* because he gives off creepy angry vibes.

Sigh... and people wonder why feminism is back on the rise.

These two things are not mutually exclusive.  In fact, I'd say they pretty much go hand in hand.

Well, yes, because the only people that matter in our Brave New World are fictional characters.

Always act like a man. Always.

The sexual revolution had consequences. One of those consequences was the break-up of the oligopoly that women had on sex.When they had an oligopoly tightly controlled by societal norms, sex was valuable and they could demand extremely high prices for it-including life long commitments from men. Now that the oligopoly is no longer in place, sex does not command as high a price. This of course does not mean that there are not men who still want to commit for a lifetime, but they are no longer compelled to. There are of course benefits to the sexual revolution as well. Women are not compelled to stay in abusive relationships as an example in order to maintain the social contract that the oligopoly demanded. At the same time, they now have to ply their wares on the open market and that is much more unstable and as a general rule they are less valuable sexually since there are so many others willing to sell at low prices. I guess though that men have pretty much always been in that boat though since we're usually always giving it away for free, so if nothing else the sexual revolution has brought more equality, but equality sometimes equates to loss of privilege.

I know plenty of guys that have said "if my best friend had tits and a vagina, I'd marry him in a heart beat"

A lot of guys are looking for a reasonable, rational, logical woman that loves getting outside, doing physical things, and will tell you when she's pissed and WHY instead of brooding.

I know it's crazy, but quit being farking neurotic about everything and don't over think nothing comments.
