“World ends tomorrow! Women, minorities hardest hit!”
Our colleges make great efforts to attract young women. They run campaigns to convince women to enter traditionally male fields, and they create and expand majors designed to appeal to women. Classrooms routinely teach that men are inherently evil, "toxic masculinity" and all that. And they back this up with rules of conduct that assume that in any conflict between a man and a woman, the man is wrong and the woman is right until proven otherwise. And if proven otherwise, the woman is excused with no penalty whatsoever. And then we are surprised that fewer and fewer men are attending college. Umm, what did you expect to happen?
I was married to a woman who was 2+ points lower than I was on the 10 point scale. I had low self esteem in my youth. She divorced me after 20+ years because I got sick.
I didn’t think about it at the time, but I now realize that I was never physically attracted to her.
I'm usually happy, or at least I enjoy some schadenfreude, when foolish people reap the rewards that come from their demands being met. You want to bring down the "patriarchy" by attacking masculinity, well here you go. I used to warn my left wing friends and family about throwing the baby out with the bathwater, but nobody seemed too concerned: "We can call somebody to do that for us." Who's there to answer that call nowadays? The 50+ million aborted babies aren't, and neither are the man-bun wearing, binge watching/ video game playing girly men we've created instead. All I hear is; "we don't pay the teachers enough money, because those darned vouchers are killing public education." Nixon said something like; some things can't be fixed by throwing more money at them, and this is a good example of that. Thanks for writing this essay
Well, if people in general would stop having expectations and focus more on what the person has to offer. This wouldn't be a problem would it? What ever happened to love? Is it now a foreign concept? Sure physical attraction plays a part, but it is not or should not be the end all thing that motivates one to pusue a relationship in the first place. Neither is social standing nor wealth or education. Future generations are doomed because society has made the strive for success the most important thing in life. What happened to happiness? Where is this world going?
