Men Are Obsolete
Time ^ | Jan. 02, 2014 | Hanna Rosin

Posted on 01/02/2014 9:41:15 PM PST by Farnsworth

Five reasons we are definitely witnessing the end of men

ONE: It’s the end of men because men are failing in the workplace.

TWO: It’s the end of men because the traditional household, propped up by the male breadwinner, is vanishing.

THREE: It’s the end of men because we can see it in the working and middle class.

FOUR: It’s the end of men because men have lost their monopoly on violence and aggression.

FIVE: It’s the end of men because men, too, are now obsessed with their body hair.

Oh my, how I could go on and on about this story, but I shall ask my fellow XY compatriots to read this clap trap and ask for your unbridled comments....PLEASE see the article for the authors "justifications"

It is NO WONDER, we have pajama boys and young men CHOOSING NOT to have long term relationships with women.

Cheers

Sounds like and advanced case of penis envy......

But i can see some of this because of the war on males in the education system and the government as the man of the house.

Jus’ took a look at ole Hanna’s mug. Laz would NOT hit it!
There’s a corollary to John Wayne’s mantra about “ life being tough, and tougher if you’re stupid,” which extends the pain to “if you’re ugly.”

MY man has not become obsolete..

MY man has body hair galore....he wishes he had a little more on his head however....

men's main problem is that they have become so soft from not having to work for anything...not sex certainly...hooking up is just expected from females from hs on ..

although, a lot of them can't really live up to their illusions..heck, most of them have to take a little pill just to get "it" to work...its very very sad....

but they got the Playboy dream....free sex without consequence....increased leisure time...less responsibilities....so few children wanted.....

give me the cave man anyday....at least he could be counted on to breed, and bring home the meat....

Mens Rules

We always hear “the rules” from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. These are our rules! Please note... these are all numbered “1” ON PURPOSE!

1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You’re a big girl. If it’s up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don’t hear us bitching about you leaving it down.

1. Birthdays, Valentines, and Anniversaries are not quests to see if we can find the perfect present yet again!

1. Sometimes we are not thinking about you. Live with it.

1. Sunday = sports. It’s like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.

1. Don’t cut your hair. Ever. Long hair is always more attractive than short hair. One of the big reasons guys fear getting married is that married women always cut their hair, and by then you’re stuck with her.

1. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

1. We don’t remember dates. Mark birthdays and anniversaries on a calendar. Remind us frequently beforehand.

1. Most guys own three pairs of shoes - tops. What makes you think we’d be any good at choosing which pair, out of thirty, would look good with your dress?

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That’s what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. A headache that last for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

1. Check your oil! Please.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.

1. If you won’t dress like the Victoria’s Secret girls, don’t expect us to act like soap opera guys.

1. If you think you’re fat, you probably are. Don’t ask us. We refuse to answer.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

1. Let us ogle. We are going to look anyway; it’s genetic.

1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions, and neither do we.

1. The relationship is never going to be like it was the first two months we were going out. Get over it. And quit whining to your girlfriends.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

1. We are not mind readers and we never will be. Our lack of mind-reading ability is not proof of how little we care about you.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say “nothing,” we will act like nothing’s wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don’t want an answer to, expect an answer you don’t want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine. Really.

1. Don’t ask us what we’re thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as navel lint, the shotgun formation, or monster trucks.

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. Foreign films are best left to foreigners. (Unless it’s Bruce Lee or some war flick where it doesn’t really matter what the hell they’re saying anyway.)

1. It is neither in your best interest or ours to take the quiz together. No, it doesn’t matter which quiz.

1. BEER is as exciting for us as handbags are for you.

1. Thank you for reading this; Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight, but did you know we really don’t mind that, it’s like camping.

1. I’m in shape. ROUND is a shape.

[eyeroll] I sense the involvement of Kissy Chrissie Mathews or some other nominally male pantywaist. Don’t actually care enough to check. What they don’t understand is that men don’t actually feel we need their permission to be relevant, no do we give a rat’s azz whether they extend it or not. We just go do it.

LOL! Reminds me of a bit on “Steve and Garry”, back in the day, when there was a controversy where The U of W didn’t want to let the W Va. Mountaineer mascot carry a “rifle”. Garry Meier adopted the persona of an “effeminate” UW spokesperson, who commented with a lisp, “Our badger doesn’t have a gun and he’s very aggressive.” ... I’ll never forget it.

I encourage people to read the comments section. This woman is being trolled big time, and its pretty hilarious.

Anthropology doesn’t support this deluded witch’s man-hate, likely induced by her clam-diving inclinations. GOD has made man and woman each with their role. We can bend from God’s will, but we always veer back. Its in our DNA.

We are only seeing the further pansification of liberal eunuch men, but who cares what happens to them? Pathetic specimens anyway. A liberal man is no man at all in my book. If society is viewed purely from a ‘the strong survive’ perspective, this phenomenon is only bad for feminism, for its defenders (liberal men) become more effeminate and unable to defend the ideology. Meanwhile, conservatives retain the classic role of the male, that is as a patriarch, a source of strength, and the purveyor of faith.

Nature rules these matters and it shall see those groups protected by ‘weak men’ fall to the axe of time.

And a dumb Time article from a woman who probably gained some sick sexual pleasure from writing this filth, does not change thousands of years of human experience and history. Even if liberalism were to completely feminize American men, what would be the result? Another patriarchal society such as Russia would simply take us over, and then where would this bimbo be? She’d be speaking Russian and washing that garbage out of her mouth.

But in order to win this debate we have to prove that men, quote unquote, as we’ve historically come to define them — entitled to power, destined for leadership, arrogant, confused by anything that isn’t them.

This man couldn't get past the first incomplete sentence. Okay, it wasn't the first, but it was the most obtrusive.

Female children should be raised by the State on remote farms. At the age of 18 lobotomized and then sold to private company's and private citizens. I envision a place like Blockbuster where you could rent one for the weekend and return her through a huge slot in the door.

The human being is a social being and was never meant to have artificial substitutes for natural relations with the opposite sex. As society falls for the lie that natural man-woman companionship is outdated, we will have more neurotic people ill equipped for social interaction.

Forget what’s happening to men in our society. Look at what so many women have become. This... Is it human? Is it an uglier xenomorph? We may never know.
I’m just glad conservatives have the classy women, while liberals have... this.

Strange thing. I had to go to a tire shop today, due to a surprise flat, and while I waited for maybe an hour, there was some "Judge Judy" type show on about disputed paternity. They had a woman who was sure "the father" was a certain guy, but the show did the DNA test, and no it wasn't. She was distraught. The show offered that she could "come back" and they would test "the other guy" , who was mathematically in the running, according to her own admission.

In a second case, some low life lookin' guy was saying that if it was "his" he wanted to be in on the deal, in so many words, but if not, he didn't want to have anything to do with it. "It" being the baby. Heavy stuff.

When I checked out, I asked the tire guy, what was channel was that? He said he didn't know, they changed it.

I was fascinated that here we had on this presumed classless and mindless entertainment, a complete reliance on the authority of Natural Relations, called "biological" by the libs, in a way meant to be disparaging.

You can't fool Mother Nature!
