When the fantasy world of video games and pornography offers a greater appeal to men than the real world I wouldn't go on as to search for one to blame.

Yep, it would appear that feminists are not really the ones to blame for blokes who hide away in their basements avoiding relationships with women. It seems we have found agreement.

My personal thoughts on that is that Feminism is a convenient scapegoat for those who simply don't want to pursue an active love life. However, the internet culture wars have played a very big role in this as well. Most of the men who have "checked out" as the OP describes are men who spend a lot of time online, and are exposed to the very nasty subcultures that unfortunately have very loud voices on the internet.

Everybody wants a scapegoat lol, but as a man I can't stand by and watch lame excuses from cave-dwelling blokes who blame women as a group for their personal problems.
Individual women of course, maybe...but blaming 'women' as scary terrorists is lame and I think a few members here need to get a bit of sunlight and address their issues properly before blaming their problems on women who are chasing equality.

Our public drinking water has been polluted for decades with mostly estrogen, from women on The Pill, and that is the one thing that kept leeching thru from our sewage to our drinking water that couldn't be filtered out:

chestsculpting.com...
THE DANGERS OF ESTROGEN IN YOUR DRINKING WATER
"In 2008, the Associated Press launched a wide-scale, 5-month investigation into pharmaceutical contaminants in drinking water. They discovered drugs in the drinking water of 24 major metropolitan areas, including South California, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington DC, Tuscon, and Northern New Jersey.

"Traces of drugs found included antibiotics, mood-stabilizers and anticonvulsants like carbemazepine, estrogens, metabolized angina medicine and tranquilizers to name a few. Now it’s true that the concentrations of these drugs and chemicals are tiny – measured in parts per billion or trillion – far below a medical dose. Water providers continue to insist that these levels are ‘safe’, but the truth is, scientists don’t yet know the consequences of decades of exposure to low levels of multiple drugs.

"One thing we do know is that scientists are becoming increasingly concerned by recent studies which show alarming effects on wildlife and human cells. Many scientists believe that chronic low level exposure to these drugs and other toxins, could be subtly bringing on allergies, causing nerve damage, HAMPERING FERTILITY AND DEVELOPMENT, damaging the brain and CHANGING BEHAVIOR, causing cancer and a multitude of other problems and diseases."

(NOTE: So you've got boys growing breasts, an increasing gay population, and some sub-populations have practically stopped having male births compared to female births. Another effect is that The Pill works by tricking the body into believing it's already pregnant. And what does a female body do in the early stage of pregnancy? GAIN WEIGHT! So this could be playing into the obesity epidemic too.)



There's probably something to that. I don't remember the author's name, but I believe his book is titled "Boys Adrift", a book about the OP's subject. I heard Punnett interview him a few years back on Coast. He mentioned groundwater contamination, as well as estrogen mimicking(PCB's?) chemicals found in many common plastics(including many bottled water bottles) that leach into the water. Doing a real number on men's hormones, as I understand it. Get a filter. Use it. Drink from a glass instead of a plastic cup if you can help it.
He mentioned the backlash of feminism, but another noteworthy mention was the wrongheaded approach many of our institutions take toward raising our boys while they are warehousing them, that helps contribute to the disconnect. Fascinating interview. I wouldn't mind taking in the book sometime.

Dating is emotional suicide. lol Imo that best way to meet people is find groups of people with similar interests, then do things with the group, meet people and find a person that interests you. Take the time to observe them interact with the group over time, if that particular person still captivates your interest, then pursue something more concrete.

Dating like we do in the USA is madness, and again imo causes unwanted chaos.

Oh ya madness is the word I would use. Madness fits the whole scene perfectly, maybe we should consider why our wise and ancient ancestors never did it, because it never worked unless you had a club and a fancy cave that is. And what is the equivalent of a club now a days, either drugs, or lots and lots of alcohol, or a Porsche. The dating scene is were you can witness the human animal in all its hilarious glory and unglory, like a monthy python sketch, its chock full of humor and plenty of odd moments. People should stay away from it most definitely, it's not worth it.

Kind of reminds me of that scene in 300.... Madness.. Madness? This is Dating. And then bam somebody gets a foot to the face, and off course much later comes the bill.

Yet, oddly enough, you say that possibly opposites are not good for each other? Well, how can you say Estrogen and Testosterone are not opposites? And even further to the point, the male gender is not without estrogen, and the female gender is not without testosterone.

Do not try to put words in my mouth. It is not done. What I said is a neat freak and a slob who end up together even if they were somehow in love or whatever. Well it would cause problems....The rest of what you said means little, and I did not even touch up on it. Especially estrogen and testosterone, I mean, ya those are two different things, but they are also just chemicals and not full blood entities in there own right.

I could do so but what would be the point of that. And on transgender people, I dont know, there used to be a few around this site, I would ask them next time I chat one of those people up, if I remember that is. Besides even if I asked them any of the question on why or how they are the way there are, first it would be considered extremely rude, and second it may not be the entire truth, which in 99.9% of cases of any humans alive is the case. Even me, believe it or not, I totally sometimes just make # up, just because.

The testimonials and believes and ideas of people are not to be taken at face value even in the best of situation.


We see almost every single instance of species in nature the numerically undeniability of genders. The male genders almost always take the role of protector. The female species almost always takes the role of lifegiver and nurturer. The only exceptions that I can see to this are in the cases of penguins and seahorses. I say this with the caveat of only having had one cup of coffee, it being 7:37am, and my utter acknowledgement of the fact that I have been fallible in past ascertions. No one single person is always correct.

Well its a good thing you wrote a statement to detract your other statement. Because its not necessarily true. Have you ever heard of a little bug called the mantis? Well its case is not so bizarre in the animal kingdom, it would be one of many, I know most people think the mantis is this cute little bug eyed creature with tiny little folded hands, and it is, it is quite cute, but its also a pretty bloody killer. Everything that happens in nature is natural, believe of one or the other is of no consequence but to those that believe it. The only question is...Is it desirable, do you want it to be common? Common may be the word and not natural. That is all there is, natural is merely what you accept and expect to be common in most and all societies and environments.

Besides I dont think this thing is such a big deal...I have yet to see a female without a boyfriend and some even go through them like they go through new shoes on big sales day. And well most dudes do not have that many major problems when it comes to the opposite sex. At least none that would not qualify as just normal behavior for any two animals to have in this ecosystem and environment.

So ya! The only vibe I am getting in all this is that everybody is stretching things to there max, and making more of it then it is. Even I dont have that many problems in my life, and my life if you saw it from the outside, lets just say it would be deceiving. In all no real complains, in fact I dont really care all that much if I do or do not find a mate or love or whatever. It all seems kind of just meh! To much dramatics and talking.

Like I said time would be better spent on other things. Such as making some better robot females. I dont know why everybody is making such a big deal about this, I think the Japanese have it right in that respect. Its sounds like a good idea to me, I never thought so before. But now, it's definitely a good idea.

Men watch porn of women being abused, by up to 6 men at a time. Over long periods of time men become "used" to this sort if scenario. Called conditioning, and has been happening for years. my 15 year old nephew showed me some videos on his phone the other day.

I can tell you now, I have seen some # in my days. I was gobsmacked by what I saw on his phone (and he was laughing).

So yea, people can say porn isn't an issue. I say 15 year old kids who have unfettered access to the most hardcore porn is a cause for concern.

If people do not think watching some of this porn they have online does not effect the minds of growing kids. Then there idiots. It may not turn them into raging sexfiends or who know what. But it does effect them. I see that as a more parents problem then anything else, if you got kids. It may be prudent to put a filter on what and were they can surf the net. Though now a days that is close to impossible, but it may be better that if they run into that stuff that they run into it latter in life when there more mentally and socially developed.

There are many things ruining Man Woman relationships in modern world.

Feminism is only one part of it.

Pornography industry is another.

Education system another.

And also lets not forget the government, the corporations and government make more money with ruined marriages, I'll let you figure out how when you time comes to divorce.

This is a very small percentage of men that do this, even less than 1%. You just happened to view a website of some freak who had the money to do this...it certainly does not apply to the average working man, who doesnt run a website. Think just a bit would you.

The comparisons are not apt even among men. For instance I weight around 250 pounds, I do not even see other men who are fit dragging me around in a war zone if they had to. In fact I think they have a weight limit to get into the army, I dont know what it is for my size but I think even if I wanted to join I would have to drop at least 50 pounds, now I am not fat and the only way I would do that now a days is by cutting off a leg or an arm to reach that weight much less stay at that weight.

And also I would rather drag a 300 pound guys all day across miles then work in a coal mine. First of all I would likely bang my head on something at every turn, and second of all, I would probably not fit in some of those spaces, and last of all it would kill my back just staying in some of those positions for hours. Basically I would not last, and even a more lighter woman may be better suited for some of that work, most people who work in mines I believe are of a smaller stature.

So ya! I believe the whole rule against women in the military is more closely related to the reasons of why they did not have women on ships when they sailed back ages ago. A woman on a ship with a bunch of dudes who would go on a trip for possibly months and moths. YA that would cause some drama I think. Now a days its a bit different, but I think it that would still apply especially in certain things and situation. And for women working in coal mines, well there free to do so and some have, the question is would they want to? Probably not right?

Come on a sexodus
Come on a sexodus
Come on a sexodus
Come on a sexodus

Do you want to come on the sexodus?
If you got swag, #-k with us
And do you wanna ride like a crusader?
Me, I'm not a Christian girl.
My blood type is no negative
But I'm positive that I'm too deep
Switch the light on when we hit the sheets
Truly what I see is all I keep
I see you stacked chicks their views are blocked in
When I help 'em you say you broke in
I see you locked in you say I don't let you in
How come all this drama still trending

Baby you can have it all
Tell me what for
Baby you can have it all
Tell me what for

New frontier I got news from there
Let's sell it to a new frequency
I left the graveyard selling full of fancy
Bring your homie with transparency
My blood type is no negative
But I'm positive the dark ain't deep
Just switch your light on when we hit the streets
Truly what I see is all I keep
My sights are set in higher times
And my eyes can see in 3D
Make it bright and I see 360
I can get you, but you can't get me

Baby you can have it all
Tell me what for
Baby you can have it all
Tell me what for

Yeah you keep on telling me you wanna have it all
Tell me what for
Yeah you keep on telling me you wanna have it all
Tell me what for

Cash and Kashmir, gold in Zier
I got a new one from over there
You can drink a mint tea by the Red Sea
As you're living out whose fantasy
Yeah the sun the moon are both
Hitting the hood and the heat's too hot to be cool
Yeah I'm sailing my bed to a better man school
And it's two in the afternoon
We already bullet-proof, we got a big crew
And we're running on a force that's true
We don't fear you, wear up-to-date shoes
Or fall for the point of view

Baby you can have it all
Tell me what for
Baby you can have it all
Tell me what for

Yeah you keep on telling me you wanna have it all
Tell me what for
Yeah you keep on telling me you wanna have it all
Tell me what for

What d'you want it all for?
What d'you want it all for?


Hear that men? Better have a good answer for what you "want it all" for. Because if you want _anything_ then you, as a man, are automatically guilty of wanting _everything_.

Wait a minute here.

I read the entire article, just as the OP recommended, and it has taken two days to read the thread. Here is my comment.

We firebombed hundreds of thousands of Germans to death to make the world safe for pornography, and now you are telling me that pr0n is bad for our boys?! Please make up your gorram minds. Do women want the right to pose or not?

And this is all the proof we need of why things are not all peachy, really, women are much better human beings than men by almost any measure? Sounds like somebody drank the Kool-Aid, ask yourself what the reaction would be if you switched out women for men in that paragraph, we all know what it would sound like.

Honestly, you sound like one of those pathetic "white knight" guys that will suck up to women thinking it will get you some. Newsflash, it won't, women don't like snivelling peons. We are not the weak ones, you however, are quite obviously a lapdog. I know your type very well, you're one of them social justice warriors aren't you? Self-righteous in your belief that you are somehow enlightened and need to spread the gospel. Make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside I bet.

And oh, just because someone is perceptive enough to recognise privilege and discrimination doesn't mean that that particular person feels discriminated against personally.

I don't think it has much to do with feminism at all or women because the article says they are checking out of society in general. It could be a component but it also could be much more than that. The world is sick and probably always has been and the constant fight against evil or what you perceive to be evil is exhausting. Often I fight for something only to regret it later when I realize what I was really fighting for. It's hard to know who or what to trust when it's the MSM selling it to you. The internet allows you to know the full extent of the power of the evil in the world and how powerless a man is in the face of it.

The article says they also aren't getting involved in politics and who could blame them. One of the biggest problems with politics is it seems like whoever wins it doesn't really matter. It's impossible to know what to fight for because once noble ideas, causes and organizations so often get corrupted when they start to gain traction. I don't blame them for checking out.

It is still defeatist and it probably wouldn't be happening without the mass media and internet. I would suggest to them that rather than checking out of the world they simply checkout of the mass media/internet and try to do good and what they can in their local community. Reading about all the terrible things happening in the world is exhausting and makes you question if humans even deserve to exist and if you really want to be part of this species and this world.

All this information and news might even be corrupting people and changing their mentality. Remember when facebook did an experiment to see if good and bad news feeds could influence peoples moods? I wonder if this has happened on a larger scale and even if it isn't being done on purpose that doesn't mean it isn't having an effect on people.

It's with this realization I'm going to check out myself. Not from the world but from the media and internet. I used to be able to handle it and not take things too seriously but now days it is becoming a drain on me psychologically and a drain on my soul.

Oh and if you are wondering about the strange account I had another one but recently scrambled all my passwords on all forums with news and politics including this one to deter me from coming back to them. I remembered I created this one to do Obamacare parody style posts ages ago. It almost seems fitting I use it for my last post considering the reasons it will be my last. I just wanted to share this realization in case it might help others before I scramble the password for this one. Goodbye and good luck with your endeavors.

Lower IQ seen after exposure to plastic chemicals

news.yahoo.com...

my guess is that women taking birth control plays only a small part of the problem!
But like cigarettes the birth control pills will be made the scapegoat since heaven help us if they ever come clean and tell us that our industries poisoned all of us to avoid the cost of EPA regulations!

The attacks and attack replies on this thread only re-enforce why men are giving up on women. It's not just a woman issue but one of disrespect, hate, narcissism, self-centeredness and anger.

There was a day when men and women actually worked together to build a home, family, farm and life, but with the advent of our current society things have changed.

Emotionally maybe that yearning for a partner is there, but in reality we have a choice.

The choice is now clear, when we have too much, and the ability to take care of ourselves we can lash out, be childish, take the lower road, and wallow in our collective materialism.

By the comments and stars re-enforcing hatred we appear to be descending as culture.



Peace,

Apparently you merely wish to be "right". To "win".

And wow, what a defensive response.

You can disagree without being so purposefully abrasive.

Given that you so vehemently feel that I was trying to put words in your mouth, while I did not attempt to do, I believe you were blinded by a feeling of defense boiling to what reads to be rage you could not truly read what I had to say. I feel that you merely looked for highlights, and cherrypicked.


Good Job.
