Re: Operation Feminist Movement
Men, our long twilight struggle with the opposite sex is over. Our victory is total.
Can you believe the way things used to be? Remember when our fathers and grandfathers would drag themselves to mind-numbing jobs every day, having the sole responsibility for the feeding, clothing, and housing of their entire family?
And things were no easier before marriage, when mens quest for sexual satisfaction was all too often hampered by the widespread moral code which taught women not to give out the milk for free.
Well, that state of affairs just wouldnt do. So we men came together and did what we do best formulate and implement a plan. First step, design the perfect world, the perfect male world. We decided such a world would consist of two things: less responsibility and more and no-strings sex.....

“We won?” Is the writer of this a woman?
Somehow taking my wife out to celebrate doesn’t sound like a good idea...
I have to agree with this piece 100%.
Nope, this guy’s right.
By tricking women into believing that lifetime monogomous relationships with men was the equivalent of slavery (instead of the MOST empowering construct possible),
men have entered the world of “free milk”.
If the woman gets too “bothersome”, men can just move on.
Won’t be too long before women are just one of many “wives” and carrying water on their heads for their families because they can’t convince a man to do something to alleviate this drudgery.
No. Especially when there are battles still being fought on occasion in my home.
they need to work on the car and changing a wheel though before we can say we won.
Try saving your unborn child from and abortion, then tell us how men won.
Well, it’s kind of satire...and men ‘won’ if they don’t get married...
Sadly, sadly, sadly true.
I was watching Last of the Mohicans again last night when the Huron (cannibals) chief was assigning fate for four whites, the decision was that one man would be ransomed back to the Brits, one man would just walk away, one woman would be assigned to marry a superstud warrior and the last woman would be burned alive.
The two men were male chauvinist pigs that kept yelling “no, burn me instead” the winner tricked the other guy and got to be burned alive in place of the woman, who got set free, allowed to date others.
To begin with it basically says I am a product to be taken for a test drive over and over again and not worthy of even an investment of your time and money. These girls think they are the ones testing the 'product,' yet women have more of an emotional investment more often than men initially and if the young girls 'give away' even a kiss under these 'test run' conditions they will often find themselves giving away the farm for free and left to bear the calving alone.
I sure won.
My ex was a very good looking woman, but she was useless. She just didn’t tend to me or her chores very well and after many years (too many), I still coudn’t teach her to leave the toilet seat up and, well, I just coudn’t take the mediocrity anymore and tossed her out on her very pretty butt.
That was almost 20 years ago. I’ve never remarried as there are plenty of very pretty ladies out there I can borrow for short periods of time with no financial or moral responsibilities on my part. /s
You must read the entire article to understand why the author is declaring WE WON (and he means ‘men’).
The author makes some very valid points. Feminists and Lawyers have destroyed the institute of marriage. Essentially, there is NOTHING in it for men. Not a single thing.
Sex? Nope, can get that without marriage. Security? Nope. Financial perks? No.
Men more than double their responsibility, with not a single benefit at all. Lose half of what you own, anything you earn while being married is split 50/50. In some cases, you pay her money after the divorce, until she decides she wants to re-marry (but why would she ever do that when she can just shack-up and keep getting your income?). She is the de-facto custodian of the children, unless you can PROVE she is unfit, and even then the judge may give the children to the mother in spite of mental illness, abuse or abandonment.
There is no social stigma for fathering children out of wedlock, just that inconvenient child-support check. Women can have anyone father the child; but the husband is stuck with the child-support. There is no financial incentive to get married, in fact there is a tax penalty. With all these dis-incentives to get married, it’s amazing that any marriages still take place.
Can you imagine the conversation if a man told his date “After we marry, I think I’ll just quit working and stay at home; maybe have you get pregnant and have a baby; then I’ll stay home and raise the children while you work 2 jobs”. No, that man would be considered a ‘loser’ and dumped immediately; however if the roles are reversed the man is expected to simply accept this change in roles.
Femminism has done a great deal of damage, and the damage has yet to even be acknowledged; let alone corrected.
Why don’t we just jump into the abyss?
We can do like China and kill all female babies. (we kinda are anyway).
Since life is essentially meaningless, lining liberals against the wall and shooting them will be ok.
Also, we need to build a golden calf on the lawn of the White House, and have doctors abort late third trimester babies on the altar.
That's already happening in the Black community except, you're carrying the water.
“we won?” is the writer stark raving mad?
Men have no vote in this, either for, or against.
Consider, no man may force his wife to carry the pregnancy full term. Her body, we have no voice. Conversely, we cannot force her to abort either. We initiate the process (sometimes under fraudlent pretexts); then we sit and await the consequences.
She can abort it, we don't get a vote. She can choose to carry it full term, move away and never let the man know that he was a father; in some cases she can come back 17.99 years later and demand 18 years of back child-support. She can raise the child herself, or she can give the child up for adoption - stating that she does not know the father. Or, she can chose to keep the child and take 25% of the male's income for the next 18 years. She can move freely anywhere whe wants to go; however the male must remain local (inspite of employment opportunties elsewhere) if he wishes to maintain contact with his child. She will dictate the times and terms of his visitations.
Finally, she may get pregnant from any man she chooses, and if she is married, the husband will be held legally responsible to provide fiscal support for the children.
There was a reason for the way things used to be.
Dates are as much test drive as anything else. Dating is a horrible artificial construction, I always hated it. My wife of 17 years and I never went on a date, we spent time together and let things go their course, and it’s still running that course.
I still have to kill the spiders in my house.
Six married men will be dropped on an island with one car and 3 kids each for six weeks.
Each kid will play two sports and take either music or dance classes.
There is no fast food. Each man must take care of his 3 kids; keep his assigned house clean , correct all homework, complete science projects, cook, do laundry, and pay a list of 'pretend' bills. Each man must remember the birthdays of all their friends and relatives, and send cards out on time--no emailing. Each man must also take each child to a doctor's appointment , a dentist appointment and a haircut appointment. He must make one unscheduled and inconvenient visit per child to the Urgent Care. He must also make cookies or cupcakes for a social function. Each man will be responsible for decorating his own assigned house, planting flowers outside, and keeping it presentable at all times. The men will only have access to television when the kids are asleep and all chores are done.
The men must shave their legs , wear makeup daily, adorn themselves with jewelry, wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes, keep fingernails polished, and eyebrows groomed.
During one of the six weeks, the men will have to endure severe abdominal cramps, back aches, have extreme, unexplained mood swings but never once complain or slow down from other duties.
They must attend weekly school meetings and church, and find time at least once to spend the afternoon at the park or a similar setting...
They will need to read a book to the kids each night and in the morning, feed them, dress them , brush their teeth and comb their hair by 7:00 am.
A test will be given at the end of the six weeks, and each father will be required to know all of the following information: each child's birthday, height, weight, shoe size, clothes size, doctor's name, the child's weight at birth, length, time of birth, and length of labor, each child's favorite color, middle name, favorite snack, favorite song, favorite drink, favorite toy, biggest fear, and what they want to be when they grow up.
The kids vote them off the island based on performance.
The last man wins only if... he still has enough energy to be intimate with his spouse at a moment's notice.
If the last man does win, he can play the game over and over and over again for the next 18-25 years, eventually earning the right to be called Mother!
After you get done laughing, send this to as many men as you think can handle it. Just don't send it back to me...... I'm going to bed.
That piece is an exhibition of stupidity for the entertainment of man-haters and romanticists (those who suck up to feminists, like the effeminate, adulterous Henry Beecher). By contemporary law, a man may legally have a harem, if he is rich enough to pay his women for the rest of his life. If he’s working class and has sex with or marries a woman, she may later relegate him to jail for being unable to pay alimony/support.
If accused in a permanent restraining order (no conviction necessary), a man may be imprisoned for no less than five years for possessing a firearm at any time during the rest of his life (anti-Second-Amendment VAWA as also passed by Republicans).
The list of feminist/romantic laws goes on. Patterson should try something other than writing.
The Pill: 1960. The little time-bombs that are blowing up our civilization.
As a woman, I get the writer’s point. In many ways feminism was nothing but a scam.
ok, I finally read it. pretty funny!
I knew we would when we talked them into burning their bras.
Basically though you have to admit to most of it ....
Dating is “practicing for divorce”.
I am a woman, and I get it. Satire but with an edge of truth. The so-called feminist movement is nothing more than part of the statist plan to destroy traditional culture.
Men do, however, bear some of the blame. Back before the destructive waves that began washing across, many men belittled the work of the housewife/mother at home raising her own children, cleaning her own house, and making a welcoming environment for her husband to enter at the end of the work day. How often still is such a woman referred to as “not working”?
Dating is just dumb. It’s kind of like a job interview, people wear clothes they wouldn’t normally wear, go to places they wouldn’t normally go, eat food they wouldn’t normally eat, talk about things they wouldn’t normally talk about; and then if the relationship progresses they eventually wonder why the person is so different than when they were dating.
My bet is you two spent time getting to know one on one as did my honey and I. Yet it was not until he manned up and asked me out exclusively that he got the long, flowing dress, the long flowing locks, the demure glances in his direction, and the come hither possibility of date too. I think he most likely washed his vehicle and went to the bank prior to our scheduled time together.
Men need to be wary as well these days as women will use them for a credit card, give them nothing in return except an empty bank account and heart ache and find a guy she really likes.
Many young men these days also are not as respectful of the woman's body as something to be honored nor are the women or young women themselves. In your day I am guessing there was a mutual respect for each other, minds, bodies, and souls. Just guessing.
The writer is dead-on.
I have always advocated, and the writer agrees, that women didn’t WIN equal rights. Those rights were squandered by men - men who would not take the responsibility that comes with being men.
My Dad (God rest his soul) was the bread earner in our family for as long as I can remember. Even when times were tough, he did not want us kids left with a sitter - he wanted them to be with their Mother.
Never once did he degrade her for being a housewife. He busted his hump making sure we grew up the way he thought we should have, and he paid a heavy price for it, many time working outside till after dark shoveling snow, raking leaves and a host of other misc jobs to supplement his main income. He did it this way because he loved and respected her and our family unit, not because he wanted her to be some kind of subservient slave to him.
This is why I so thoroughly DESPISE modern feminism. They have corrupted and stereotyped men like my Father until they were shamed into silence for doing something they thought was good and pure.
My day was only 20 years ago. Things weren’t terribly different. About the only thing that’s really changed is they gave a verb to what “friends with benefits” do (hooking up), and they use cellphones more often. Other than that the group of friends that might pair off into “more than friends” has been around for a long long time. Dating tends to be for people that are looking outside their circle of friends for whatever reason.
Satan is smart.
Destroy the concept of “Father” and you destroy the family.
Destroy the family and you destroy the church, the society, and the nation.
Good. We won! Women can kill their own damned spiders now.
Brilliant analysis of the American people and their failures
If one does not have the social skills for a date then they find out real quick whether the dating partner can enhance their time together in spite of this weakness. It may be more difficult for the introvert that is socially unskilled, but for someone who is an extrovert that enjoys drawing out the generally socially shy male who can't stand superficial BS I thrived on dates on those type of men always enjoyed their dates with me--making it worth their time and investment. If they had the opposite experience then they know the woman is not right for their personality type.
Dating is a good thing and a worthwhile ritual. You find out very quickly how well you mesh with another. Also life is made up of socially constrained outings and it is nice to know up front how you and this person operate, enhance, or fail at surfing through that world together. Sometimes two together excel whereas one alone may fail.
I don’t think dating helps people find out if they mesh. Because both people are putting on a false front, all you find out about is the “dating” version of them. If you want to find out if two people mesh put them on a couch in the living room with no prep time and just enough external stimuli to provide conversation starters for 4 hours. That’s how 2 people really get to no each other, not dressed in uncomfortable clothes at overpriced restaurants.
Feminism, socialism, global warming, so many of the popular “isms” are just scams, but the American people can’t figure it out.
I like an independent operator that likes to show his stuff and brings a lot of to the table including his time and focuses energy. I had massive amounts of male friends that all wanted to date me and I would hang with them as I was not interested. It was the independent man with the gonads to ask me out and take the risk that I admired and of course I ended up with one of the best of the independent man with brains enough to ask me out.
I have made it very worth his while :-D.
lol. Needless to say you and I would most likely be like oil and water. I am so happy God created many types though. Makes the world more interesting.
Hmmmm - seems you’re missing the point, but that’s Ok ....
