Also, take into account the internet asshole thread. Many dudes online and in video games are apparently unable to interact with women without resorting to verbal abuse, threats and sexism. I've seen the most awful displays of lack of social skills online myself, and I think some of these guys need someone to tell them the truth and some really do appear to have issues such as the author of the article in OP (the bitterness just oozes through it) and I think there's probably a correlation or cause-effect relationship between gaming too much and being repulsing to women, but is that feminism, or the gaming/porn industry?(if you'd HAVE to blame someone)



Respect for women comes from a stable family unit, and a nurturing mother and father that instill these qualities on children, as they are in their formative years, and one that is a rare breed these days

With the advent of the high rate of divorce, and children basically raising themselves, no wonder we have such a lack of, or display and disregard for the opposite sex.

The OP maybe lean towards a victim mentality, and make slanted grips, but it sure does bring up lots of points that many people never want to address, and brings to light the point that men are "just giving up".

Feminism is awful. Humanism is where it's at.


NO MORE FEKKING ISMS ALREADY!!!! DON'T YOU DINGDONGS SEE WHERE ALL YOUR ISMS HAVE GOTTEN YOU? NOWHERE!

Isms are just like sports teams, there to recruit rabbid fans. Throw the damn idiot boxes in the trash and start thinking for yourselves and about yourselves. Once you're capable of that then you can start worrying about changing the world.


You should probably read the rest of my posts in this thread to get an idea of what I meant. Well first you should take a chill pill, THEN read those posts.

"in the old days teaching was one of the few occupations that women were allowed to go into and I highly doubt if the kids back then boys or girls really got the chance to learn by doing!"

No, in "the old days," life-as-farming/ranching gave boys (especially) all the learning-by-doing they needed. They went to school primarily to learn how to write, so they knew how to sign their names on future legal documents. And to learn simple mathematics so they could manage their stock, feed and seeds. When it came to harvest time, they didn't attend school for weeks. And by 9th grade, most boys had taken on a "man's life", and dropped out of school for good.

Even in the cities, most studious boys got their education from reading books. Mostly fiction, but it lighted up their dreams of "what was possible", and subtly guided their future.

For the girls who stayed in school, hours of practicing penmanship and memorizing the multiple tables did little to improve or advance their lives. But as adults, women did a lot of practical sewing/knitting/crocheting/quilting, often with a group of other women. When their talk turned to politics, however, it was never selfish radical feminism as in 'Let's destroy all the men and run things ourselves!' Instead they focused on deplorable social conditions that everyone else was ignoring.

With children stumbling drunk in the streets, and people overdosing on morphine in the 1920s, they pushed for and got Prohibition. The problems were real, but the solution was too extreme, and helped create Organized Crime. It was women who pushed for soup kitchens in the Great Depression, before there were any social services. Women also protested to get the right to vote, and succeeded.

I understand people are molded by the Times. But we really need to heal this male/female divide by looking beyond our own selfish concerns. And realize that the opposite sex is NOT the enemy! The enemy are those manipulating this "divide" for their own greedy and selfish concerns.

What a suprise. This thread devolved into "NUH NUH WOMEN DON'T NEED MEN" etc. #ing pathetic. If you don't need men, start dating other women and be a lesbian. Problem solved.

After reading the many posts here, I found myself laughing. Many of the posters here are so cynical and jaded, yet seem to think that they are strong willed and independent.

I was the only male child in my family, (6 women) and have applied the traditional woman's thinking of landing a guy in reverse. I apply the same standards to a woman.

She must earn more than me.
She must be successful.
She must be good looking.
She must be intelligent.
She must be strong, in mind, body and spirit.

No wonder I'm still single.
But I'm OK with that, because every time I've lowered my standards and accepted 3 out of 5, it never worked out.

Now I'm retired, my money is mine, very little debt, no drama except that which I create myself, I can do what I want, when I want, etc, etc.

Since I broke it off with my last fiance, every woman I have dated since, I later find out they're married and have to end the relationship...sorry ladies, I'm not that kinda guy.
Go find another sucker.

Won't happen. Until the baying packing of feminists get "equality" this will continue. I for one, welcome this stance. Lets be equals. For a start, Men get equal chance of custody for their kids. Women may now have to pay the father maintenance, If a female assaults her husband, he is legally allowed to knock her the # out (self defence against another man is perfectly OK, why not the same rule for women?). While we are at it, open up the NFL to women, and lets watch 6'5 300lbs men rip them a new vagina. Also lets replace front-line soldiers with women, just because equality. Also the really #ty, hard manual jobs like mining, oil rigging etc lets make them open to women, see how many applications they get.

Ultimately,feminism the baying pack of howling women want, is selective. They want equality in the areas of like THEY WANT, not equality in all walks of life.

Until they drop this whole charade and ask for equality in all walks of life (Can't wait for my ex to pay me for my son) then it will never come to fruition.

That's just you being a male pig, in their eyes mate. This argument will never go away, nor come to fruition. They don want equality, they want men to be bottom of the pile. That is their end goal, not some altruistic future where men and women are exactly equal.

Isn't it a normal thing that women who were suppressed for thousands of years stand up and speak for themselves?
It's okay if you take the extraterrestrial item out of the following site but women are really better then men, in a certain way. I admire Malala Yousafzai but I realize we should not go too fast and we don't have to put women on a pedestal but men have to admit they suppressed women for such a long time ....
Women and men have to be treated equal and do need equal rights.
Besides Alfred Russel Wallace and even Nikola Tesla were convinced about the fact women once will surpass men ...
The link that mentions the interviews with those two men you can find also in the following site.

That's the way I see it. You stated it pretty much the way I would, PC be damned. After thirty years in the service, I have only known a handful of women who could do a Grunt's job, and yes, they were exceptional Soldiers, but every now and then a womens issue would sideline them.

The majority of women in the service I have served with have used their sex to get what they want. That's the blunt truth, not an opinion, but a observation.

Surprisingly this is too true. These hardlined fems only want selective rights NOT equal rights. In fact once they start taking kids from mothers and giving children to the fathers on an equal footing then maybe just maybe equality can be raised.

Feminist women are akin to religious extremists/fundamentalists. Read into that how you will people..!!

I am all for equality. Not just selective equality. Meaning custody of children is shared, or men have a greater chance of gaining custody, with the woman having to pay the man maintenance in case the man gets custody. When this happens, I will salute feminism and equality. Until then, it is just a cynical, selective power grab.

It is a growing world society. Trends and culture are ubiquitously imported and exported. It is no surprise that on a peer to peer basis, that we are less compatible. The trick is to find a group alike yourself, preferably face to face.

The most threatening trend would be digital addiction. It lowers necessary social interactions, which in turn lowers opportunity for intimate and platonic engagements. Resulting in more socially devolved interactions. The feedback would be higher rejection rates and an increase of desperate people, mostly male.

I call # how I see it, and I am happy to be corrected with decent evidence to the contrary. There are women in our armed forces, and they do their jobs damned well. I just cant see enough women wanting to be a grunt to make up the numbers to even bother changing the rules. You can't make battalions uni sex, how about the living arrangements, showering etc? You think women will want to share with a bunch of laddish men? No. If we changed our rules tomorrow on women being infantry, how many applications do you think they would get?

Do you really think that women will also give up their custody trump card? Again, I'm going to have to say no.

The illusion of equality, would be more apt. I saw a perfect picture recently that sums this argument up. The lead male scientist who wore that god awful Hawaii type shirt, people lost their #. A lead feminism writer for the NYT is pictures wearing a shirt that says "I bathe in men's tears" and nothing is said.

Yea man, that's equality right there.

Another profound, heart-felt post. I too never dated in high school, 'cause it was a very small class, and the guys I fancied didn't fancy me. But I left and got out there in the world, and pursued my dreams. I attended college before you had to hock your first born to be able to afford it. And yet when I moved to Los Angeles, my high school typing got me more jobs than my Bachelor of Science degree. I found (platonic) roommates before I could afford my own apartment, and friends with similar interests (that did NOT include bashing men).

In Los Angeles, I witnessed the first subtle changes toward radical feminazism. Having the usual "all the best men are married" discussion with another woman one day, she suddenly said "Yeah, but wives used to die." I was appalled! Then even my female friends started saying radical things like "Well, I've got to go ride my broom and straighten someone out." It was then that I too began to withdraw.

All I can suggest, as I have earlier in this thread, is to develop some passionate hobbies, and look for roommates to get out of your parents' house. Your parents are probably lovely, caring people, but your emotional growth will stay arrested (and you depressed) until you move out.

And you can take the pressure off initiating a connection with the opposite sex. Don't think expensive-dates-and-sex. Think meet-for-dutch-lunch (each pays for their own meal). Or get a group together to "go dutch" to some movie you all want to see. Bless you!

Understanding everything you just said, and taking into account our current state of being.

Why is the divorce rate over 50%, some states as high as 65%, and the majority of divorce filed by women?

Are women punishing men, are they punishing the children, or are they anti-family?

imo divorce is not an answer, but rather a permanent solution to a situation they both agreed on, and took vows "for better, or for worse". But then again maybe "marriage" has outlived it's usefulness and the current MO is the way things should be?

Again, the OP and topic is about "Men giving up on women".

Do you blame them when the divorce rate is 50% plus, they get their asses handed to them in the court system, and the fact that over 75% of divorce are filed by women?

People have better odds in Las Vegas shooting at the crap table. lol


Why would I blame them when I feel that they should have always had the right to do this if they chose just as any women should have had that very same right?
But let me say something here..
I am my husband's second wife. He was in the service during the nam war and well although there are two sides of every story he told me that she had found another while he was serving so well he had perfect grounds for divorcing her but he didn't for many years.... maybe he just didn't have any need to. But when he decided to buy a house he was advised to divorce her before that so she wouldn't have any claim to the house he wanted to buy. So well a couple notices in the local newspaper (which she surely wouldn't see because she lived half way across the country and a brief court appearance and he was divorced. He bought the house and we eventually got married. Years later we moved back to our hometown which is where his first wife lived. She saw him one day and they had a nice discussion wherein she asked him for a divorce and he informed her that she was divorced. So well if my experience is any indication (and it may not be) it seems that maybe the one who first initiates a divorce is the one who first finds it standing in their way of something they want? Hubby wanted to buy a house, his ex had found someone she wanted to marry.

Eventually me and my husband fell into a rough spot and we separated for a brief time. During that time he told me to get a divorce because of the kids and well he for some reason believed that I would get free legal counsel. I'll be honest with you if I could have found a way to support myself financially during that time I might have but well like I've stated on other forums it might have been illegal to pay women less in the workforce but well I have had my share of finding out that the men (even ones with no experience)were getting paid substantially more while I wasn't getting paid enough to support myself and I just ain't one to go running to the courts when such things occur. I might argue a little with the boss over it trying to convince him why he is wrong to do such things but when push comes to shove I will just walk away. So well I found myself relying on gov't assistance which meant that they would be going after him for child support and when they started losing that support and threatening to take his cdl that was kind of the last straw in my book. Regardless of how crazy life was with each other it was really quite saner than the alternative! We've been somewhat happily married sometimes unhappily married ever since! Now that the kids are grown and less of a burden well things aren't so bad.
If I were to take a guess I would say that maybe that high divorce rate is because of economic conditions?? It's easy to share resources when there are more than enough to fill the wants and desires of all concerned but when the resources dry up the bickering starts especially when's ones wants start outweighing the other's needs.

Why are you so concerned that others are deciding not to play the game?? Is it that you want to but are afraid to?? or are you concerned that procreation will cease? I have three sons who are single and thus no grandchildren in the picture. Would I like to have grandchildren someday- yes. Am I concerned about them not producing any... not enough to pressure them into something they don't want! They've dated but well it always falls apart on them sometimes it's the women that decide it's not for them sometimes it's been them. I don't see this as a problem since well it's better to find such problems before any kids come into being! Which is something I think they must agree with since they have been very careful not to produce any! And well the economy today isn't conducive to baby making is it?? I mean when all that seems to out there for them is low wage bullcrap jobs I'm sorry a few kids isn't what they need!

The problem isn't just men, you know? It is also in the attitude of the women. Some women I just don't bother approaching as they look like far more effort then they are worth. If I could find an intelligent woman, that isn't hung up on this MSM interpretation of feminism then I would be happy as #.

I held a door open for a young lady the other day, same as I do for men and old people. She decided to start shouting at me being sexist and being generally rude and obnoxious. I ignored her, let the door close and walked off.

Who the # gets angry at a man holding open a door out of courtesy? That is what gets me.
