There is a feminist agenda against men and traditional roles in America.

Not valued?

When my significant other makes me angry, I go into the kitchen and screw down every lid to every jar and bottle as tight as possible.

I become valuable very quickly!


This here, has given me my first laugh for the day.

Your spitefulness is creating this very funny scene of you raging in the kitchen! Like the scene in Walk hard where Dewey Cox goes and bends ALL the forks, spoons and knives in the kitchen when his wife leaves him.

This argument of the world going down hill because women no longer understand their place, malarkey and men are being subjugated because of it is getting old. The level of misogyny that can be encountered on ATS truly astounds me. People both male and female lose jobs everyday its part of the recession and austerity cycle, civil service jobs are cut it trickles downhill which then results in reduction in the amount of goods/services people can afford to buy...this also panics the banks and then they refuse loans to buy houses et al. I'm sorry for the men who feel unnerved and shaken that (some) woman now want to leave the kitchen and venture into the wide world and have things like careers, but it's not going to change some of us just don't want to go back. And before I am accused of being a militant feminist, I am not I believe that everyone should have the freedom to be who they want to be, if a women wants to stay home look after her husband and kids and not work I am all for that if that's what she wants to do. It's all about options and why should the choices be unequal? I am lucky to have both amazing men and women in my family and my circle of friends, all of whom I respect and I also respect their choices to live a life that makes THEM happy.

Oh and women can and do make bridges
"As World War II overtook Europe and men went off to battle, the women of England, much as in America, entered—or were conscripted into–the wartime workforce. “Before long,” says the BBC, “women made up one third of the total workforce in the metal and chemical industries, as well as in ship-building and vehicle manufacture.” They also worked on English infrastructure: “They worked on the railways, canals and on buses. Women built Waterloo Bridge in London.”

How many women did it take to build the Panama Canal??

They made the babies, that grew up to be the men that made the canal!

Yeah I see a lady every now and then filling a pothole with asphalt or holding the Stop and Go signs for road construction...

If a woman wants to go the path of Construction she will have to harden her body first.

Like Danielson, Wax on Wax off.

I feel in Nature, Gender has its specific role and place.

Too much this gender bending and mixing.

 


How come Ladies never wear dresses any more??

It has nothing to do with the advances of technology. It is an indication of the Decline of the West.

Every civilization becomes more effeminate as it devolves.

"History is the sound of hob-nailed boots marching up the staircase, and silver slippers tiptoeing down."

I'm not so sure that it's a conspiracy - but more of a changing mindset.

Back "in the day" (well before my time, as I'm only 22), females could not and were not able to get to the same standards that us guys had - they mostly cleaned, cooked, raised kids, you get the point. And now, they are entering into jobs that pretty much make them just like everyone else - In a way, I hope the trend continues, as I wouldn't mind coming across a female programmer my age that knows as much about c-sharp and C++ as I do


As for guys not wanting to get married, that's more of a cultural thing - I don't want to get married, and it's not because of some bad thing. I made this choice because:

1. I'm Agnostic, and I feel that you don't need to marry someone just because you love them. I've seen happier relationships where the people don't get married, and they lasted longer than most of my "were" married friends.

2. I'm still trying to find my own place in this world, so why would I want to raise another kid into it? If anything, I'm being responsible by not bringing in more than what I can handle.

3. The fact that my parents got a divorce was probably the biggest factor - lets just say that one parent got a nice payment, and the other had to reduce living standards just to stay alive. I like the fact that when alone, I can control all my money, and where it goes - my salary can't support two people, so my hope is that whatever partner I meet is able to work and pay her share as well.

You are correct about the media though - most of the shows that I've seen do tend to portray men in the negative spotlight. Then again, as a horror film watcher, you wouldn't believe how many times it's a woman that is the first to go, or the last to be killed, so I think the bias evens out the score.

My daughter asked the other day why fathers are always portrayed as idiots on the programs made for children on the so-called "children's networks.

That is the point of the video at the beginning of this thread. And if this continues women will see that most successful men are like Charlie on 2 1/2 Men or needy metrosexuals like Alan. This will mean more women will have to consider:

1) Sperm banks.
2) Hooking up with another woman.
3) Polyandry -- group and mixed gender communal sexuality.
4) Polygamy -- this comes in a variety of forms but ultimately involves one man with several women in a committed relationship.

To be honest here... a lot of the previously secure male dominion in society was replaced between the late 1970s and the late 1980s. Today's reality is that females dominate advertising in nearly every sector and pretty much own the entertainment industry. But... after many millennia of us guys bring home the bacon and mowing the yard and repairing the rain gutters... seeing our sisters get some attention is fine by me.



LOL! For most of us she may bring home the bacon but we still mow the lawn ect but now are doing laundry, cooking and still being bitched at for not being millionaires.

It goes beyond traditional roles. We can clearly see that a large of this traditional role stuff just gets in the way of a couple adapting to survive in this world and economy.

The real problems arise out of what its doing to the natural nature of both women and men....what it is turning them into.

I just showed my hubby this thread. His response - because men have become sissy-fied.
