You cannot argue with the facts. And the fact is, ever since Feminism was introduced and women have gained "rights" (rights that are an illusion to us all, both men and women) the traditional Family lifestyle has been on a steady decline.

-Don't get me wrong. I adore women and I do believe they should be considered and treated as human beings rather than a slave in the household. The problem is, the majority of them either don't do ANYTHING in the household anymore or do TOO MUCH and overstep thier boundries.
And when I say overstepping boundries, I'm talking about the "controlling" females. Which is about every single female in my age group.

I consistantly see my peers being controlled by thier female counterpart. Being criticized for inane things that mean absolutely nothing. Having to report to them as if they are on probation. You can't talk to these guys and convince them not to put up with that # but they never listen. You tell them to grow a pair, but they have been cut off already.




Why are some women controlling (Women who control men and husbands)
Why are there controlling women out there?
Why do some women control their husbands?
Why do some women dominate men and control them?
Why are there bossy women?

I am sure you have noticed that there are some women out there who are control freaks. Those women do their best to control their husband and to keep him under their control.

Those women usually have the dominant role in the house and as a result the man is assigned the secondary role.

In the house where the woman is a dominant figure if the kids want to ask for something then they must go to their mom instead of their dad. In this article i will tell you why some women control men or their husbands.

If you notice on the majority of commercials and television, Men are downgraded. They are the butt end of a joke always while the female is praised for her tact and conviction. I believe these day to day viewings of downgrading men have taken its toll on modern women and men. Many men now in days suffer with a lack of confidence while many women suffer from overconfidence in what it is that they believe a relationship should be. I believe this lack of confidence stems from either not having a dominate Father figure in childhood or not having a father at all.

Masculinity Crisis

-Problems with growing up without a Father-


Confused identities. Boys who grow up in father-absent homes are more likely that those in father-present homes to have trouble establishing appropriate sex roles and gender identity.

Daughters of divorced or separated mothers evidenced significantly higher rates of internalizing problems, such as anxiety or depression.

Then if you trace the roots of the Feminist movement, you find that many things arose from it including a rise in divorce.



Home:
How did feminist’s argument and claim fare when they said that women needed to vote in order to secure “home protection”? Did they indeed protect the home by gaining the right to vote? How can anyone expect the home to have improved when the woman has abandoned both her place and the home? The “fatal blow at the home” due to women’s suffrage that Mrs. Annie Wittenmyer forewarned is now an egregious reality. The home is being destroyed because of several factors, including a feminized judicial system and laws. But what is particularly destructive is that the woman has abandoned her place, rejected the man, rejected God’s government, and taken a place in governing that belongs solely to the man.

The black widow spider that devours her mate has spun her web and lives at the expense of men, the family, and society. Today, only half of America’s households are traditional two-parent families, and many of those are not even paternal. The divorce rate is now over 50 percent, out-of-wedlock births are nine times greater than what they were in 1950, and the marriage rate is half of what it was as recent as 1970. Because of women’s rights, the home is now a tragic disaster!

Now this is my kind of thread. As an anti-feminist, I'd like to post a reply that I posted in another thread. It's relevant and there's no need for me to retype it. It basically sums up how I feel about feminists that accuse me of bringing women down by the way I choose to live my life.

"I get a lot of crap from other women about my relationship with my husband. They think they're helping me by trying to force me into these masculine pants that I would rather not wear. They ignore the fact that that respecting your husband has been an honorable thing to do up until very recent historical events. I get looked down on for being a stay at home mom. I get looked down on for understanding that I have my own equally important role in my marriage. Hell, I've even been ridiculed just for getting up to grab my husband a beer!

Very rarely my husband will make a decision affecting myself or our family that I don't agree with, but it always turns out to be for the best. I wouldn't have married him if I didn't expect him to be capable of filling a husbands shoes. Women often make decisions based on emotions. That's not sexist, it's just the way we're wired. Men are wired to be more effective leaders. I don't believe my beliefs make any other woman better than me. I'm just choosing to go the route that has been proven to work for thousands of years. Divorce and fatherless children are a recent development. I think there is a reason for that. "

It seems it all started spiraling down right after the "Woman's Rights" movement. Almost as if it was a conspiracy to elminate the Traditional Family and create chaos in the household. Therefore furthering the agenda of TPTB by creating young naive nonmasculine males and over agressive females.

The average man is too busy fighting off the drama at home to do anything or care about anything else.

Although, this is not the case for EVERY family.
There are still some "traditional" families out there where each person (mother & father) know thier roles in the household and to thier children.

And that is exactly why I will Salud to you!
Like you state, there are equal roles in the household between a husband and wife. Each have thier own significant duty and should abide by them without stepping on the other person's toes.
Cheers to you

Those men you talk about are called Blue Pill slaves. They don't want to wake up and you shouldn't try to wake them. Many other men realize that marriage and relationships with women have become more than just a hassle. They are a dangerous legal and financial liability. Your best course of action is to become a "loser" to women and stay off their radar. Let the "winners" carry the burden. Focus on yourself and your goals instead of what some chick wants.

You well be better off.

Trust me.

This very true, but feminism has not only caused men to be downgraded on television. It's also caused women to degrade themselves in the name of female empowerment. I read an article a while back by a very respected feminist writer. She applauded Lady GaGa for her sexually charged outfits and put Taylor Swift down because of her modest feminine dresses. Apparently, it's a popular belief that by showing every square inch of your skin you're making a statement that you're a powerful woman.

I agree. The feminazi movement has started a push for quotas on company boards and quotas for executive positions if you can believe it. The feminazi site the fact that more men fill these roles. They really are dispicable because they know what they are saying is nonsense but they dont care. The reason more women are not on boards or filling executive positions is because few woman seek these roles compared to men. Men are wired to seek these positions. That is not to say women are not capable but just to explain the statistics. Feminazi are not stupid and they know they are misrepresenting statistics to further/maintain their agenda. The blatant dishonesty of feminazi is what gets me.

Oh boy, have I noticed the demeaning commercials.
The funny thing about them is that they portray the woman as the primary cleaner and traditional housewife anyway.
I wish I had the chance to experience having a father figure with dignity and wisdom...

Only very insecure and weak males are threatened by feminism and try to paint it as a dirty word.

Keep your simple, traditional, and off the radar of people who might criticize it. That's my philosophy. If you can't comfortably maintain a lifestyle you want with only one income, live with the lifestyle you need instead. One with love in the home, not the newest car, gadget, or whatever.

It didn't start out as a dirty word. I think the original intent was good, but it's no longer about equality. It's about women being superior to men. It's turned into the very thing it was meant to fight.

Don't you think by acting out with thier feministic ideals and preaching that they are the ones that are insecure?
Being a traditional Mother and Wife is way to difficult for some reason now in days.

Agreed.

I think we should push for "Equality" more than feminism or chauvinism or anything else....and accept that women have a little extra seeing as they can give birth.

husband/boyfriend is either compelled to leave a relationship or suffer in turmoil from an over agressive wife/girlfriend whom insists on controlling.

Why are so many women now very controlling?
Who or what is to blame? The feminist movement and women's rights?

and then the # falls downhill.
If the two have a daughter, then the daughter grows up believing this is how she should treat men.
And if they have a son, the son grows up believing he must succumb to the rules of his GF/Wife.
(most know this, but children are quite observant)

And when I speak of my peers, I am talking about the 20-30 age group.
And hell, it's nearly impossible to find a woman that can cook anymore.

Oh, where to start?? Well you could go and practise your grammer and then get your spell checker working for a start. As for women being demonised for wanting more in life than cleaning up after your butt, is it any wonder??

Women mearly want the same options available in life as men. Oh and by the way before you start with your rubbish in defence of all those poor men, I am a stay at home mum and married.

It is a sad state we are in. And the men who suffer the most are the men who believe in ideals that go against this feminist movement. While the men who play ball get the goodies. It's behaviour conditioning at its finest.

You are miserable and alone if you resist. And you are miserable and controlled if you succumb.

I for one prefer to be miserable and alone knowing I am the change that needs to happen.

Wow, great thread!

Aaron Russo talked about the Rockefellers being behind the feminist movement. The idea was supposedly that if women worked, there would be double income tax revenues. This struck a cord with me when I heard it.

A great interview on many other levels also...:

Nothing wrong with wanting more in life. It's the double standards that we have a problem against. This is where women take advantage of men.

Sorry, I wrote this up rather quickly. My apologies for the spelling errors.
And who was demonizing women on this thread? I'm almost positive that everyone was stating and agreeing with equality not male chauvinism....
-Of course women should be entitled to just as much in life as a male.
What this thread was pointing out (hence the name of it) was the downfall of the "traditional family". You know, a wife/mother that acts like a wife/mother....

In defense of all those poor men? I was trying to point out WHY they act like little panzies.
I'm a Father and Married as well.
And my wife is #ing awesome. (certainly a flower in a field of weeds)
