Personally i'm a one man one woman type of guy, so the casual sex thing that you mention you have with your 'friends' is just confusing and
unnecessary to me.
But each to their own.
I suppose an argument could be made that you are denigrating women. For myself, I want a woman who's loyal and trust worthy, a mate - not in the
bloke terms of mate, but a mate as in the man-woman type of thing. She gets the same in return.
I've known and know women who have male friends, in the way you describe it - friends with benefits. Personally I wouldn't date them, as I think they
have low respect for themselves, but hey this is just my opinion.
As for the whole MGTOW thing, from what I can tell it's came about, simply because women are confused. It's some weird psyche, where they want a
monogamous relationship, where the guy takes the lead - and fairly, but at the same time they've got these 'silver lights' shining in their face
saying, 'hey get a career!', and 'hey, you don't need that guy!'
Now, women are perfectly entitled to have a career, and not have 'the guy', but the problem is in life you can't have everything. For instance, you
can't have the shiny looking red wine, without the hangover.
So rather than going through all that nonsense, with the lack of what I would call 'decent women' - and it's probably regarded as old fashioned - or
so they say, but it's always been regarded as old fashioned, I can understand why men would just go their own way. Logically, it's not as good as
having a long term team (your partner), but it's better than someone trying to take you to the cleaners.
Clearly this is a touchy subject. For yourself, I would suggest you stop defending 'women' as you see it, and just let guys speak. Especially as a
man yourself. Don't think the chicks will take your side when the gender walls come up! But ... each to their own.
Anyway, where was I haha.
