this is insane...........i'm sorry if you have feelings of no self worth, but this is ridiculous. and by the way who needs the so called PTB dividing us when we do such a wonderful job ourselves? cut the crap and grow up. we are all in this together and we should realize it is up to us to treat the opposite sex with respect and love.

OP, I'd encourage you to fairly simply give up.
Yes, I largely agree with you that there are a lot of double standards where men and women are concerned; but I can let you in on a little secret here, which might save you some time.
There are a number of feminists in the world, who do not consider men to have the fundamental right to exist.
I'm not talking about these women wanting to subjugate men. I'm talking about a scenario where they literally want to remove and erradicate one half of the human species. They don't want us on the planet at all any more. We are considered redundant and disposable, and it is believed that there is no legitimate reason for us to continue to exist. Supposedly, men don't serve any useful purpose at all. Apart from a form of biological IVF, apparently we were just an evolutionary mistake.
My advice to you would be to recognise the genuinely decent women who do exist in the world, and make friends with them, as their friendship is worth having; but do not seek to get into a relationship. Do not bother to seek any recognition for the at times genuine social injustice that is inflicted upon men, either. You will fail utterly. Men are never considered, in this society, to ever be anything other than instigators of injustice themselves, and even most men have been indoctrinated to believe this.
I understand that as a man, I am regarded as being rubbish. I am considered disposable. I am considered literally worthy of being put into someone's wheelie bin, and emptied into a compactor.
As a result, I've made the decision that the worst thing I can do, is to acknowledge my own need for women; physically, psychologically, or in any other way. This is because, given the fact that many contemporary women view the male gender itself as being entirely redundant and worthless, a relationship with a woman cannot result in anything other than inequality, because I would be making myself vulnerable in ways which she would not be willing to.edit on 6-6-2012 by petrus4 because: (no reason given)
very kind, but i think it's important that you know, and you may already, that you are just as much capable of making things happen than any other man is. we have to learn we are truly equals. sometimes we play different roles, but we should always be equals.

I'm a woman and I totally agree OP, men come to bias especially over matters of the family. Also I personally don't lke the demasculization of men, you have so many men who are a body part away from a unic (sp?) on tv.Where are the real men out there? They are too busy working their buts off providing for their families. In short men rock!!! When TSHTF we will need you.

I agree on everything you've written save one argument... and that's the right to force a woman to carry a child full term if she so decides not to (under certain conditions of course)

To just take a pill or something that would prevent pregnancy.
Then we would have power.
True power to keep our women in line.

Oh come on, how many men don't go to the local sperm bank to donate their sperm. Just in the hope, that there will be a woman out ther who wants his sperm ...
