    Sorry you didn’t get that the ‘closet space’ was a joke. Perhaps you needed a women to point that out to you because nearly every white male is portrayed on TV series and in ads as a hapless Homer Simpson of a mess just waiting for a wise, omniscient woman to teach him an important lesson. If more women studied for useful degrees such as engineering or trades such as air conditioning repair instead of ‘gender studies’; there are more than enough great jobs just waiting for them. Amazing how Elizabeth Holmes was able to rise against all this sexism, you know being a woman and all.

    Never gonna agree with you that entitled western woman are suffering an inordinate amount compared to anyone else. I will leave it at that. Gotta run. I have 67 pairs of shoes to chose from, this is not easy you know.

    The beautiful first lady of the United States know a lot about powerful douchebags, doesn’t she? My girlfriend has a master’s degree in nursing earned after a stint as a medic in the US Army. She is a tall, thin blonde who has been subjugated to two cases of verbal, threatening male behavior. It is terrible, I agree. She dealt with it through official channels and the offenders were punished.

    However she also loves her now deceased father and saw the great injustice that he was dealt in divorce court. He never recovered. Bordering on homeless, living onboard a moldy dilapidated boat. Oh yes, the homeless guys. I would see them whenever I drove home from work. Living in the woods, adjacent to the woman’s refugee housing. People with no safety net at all. Weekly pickups by the coroner’s wagon.

    If women want the burden of courtship, the right to be dropped off into a shitstorm of a battlefield, to give up their lopsided claim on child custody, family law outcomes and welfare, their comparatively light sentencing by criminal courts and their claim on 70% of the bedroom closet space we will finally be getting somewhere close to equality.

    Now if you wanna talk about women stuck in theocracies…Let do.

    The conclusion, assuming that there is some truth to some of the allegations..

    This is a problem for me. I am not ready to give up the presumption of innocence. Why are you assuming anything? Are you being a protector of women? That is sexist you know.

    …there is nothing stopping a person with a great mind from being a horndog as well.

    In the words of Severus Snape.. “Obviously”

    I understand that women have been held back in many ways by a system of gender roles they supported for centuries. Why not strive for equality without trashing classical liberal values?

    You’re basing what an entire gender is attracted to on what strippers look like? Are you even listening to yourself?

    There is a preponderance of evidence. Most males are acutely aware of who and what women are attracted to. I disregard “gender studies” as  worthwhile; some of the founders having proposed a 10/90 male to female ratio as ideal. Sick. Programs akin to those in ‘Christian colleges’…. full of socio/political agenda and biased ‘academia’.

    Both men and women are responsible for birth control

    Not what I said. Men have no right to a woman’s body and no right to save a fetus.

    The myth that women are generally attracted to muscle bound, rich, assholey alpha males is a really bad one.

    Right. Male strippers are 90lb weaklings or fat bald guys with beer bellies. That’s what turns women on. Especially short guys. I am 5’10” and good looking, my coworker was 5’4″ and otherwise good looking. I went out with him. The cruelty he endured that one night was astounding,  Women want tall, dark and handsome bad boys that are sometimes way out of their league and finally settle for betas when they start falling apart or have a kid.

    Of my smoking hot female friends

    Let me guess, not the fat positivity ‘babes’ that permeate the feminist landscape.

    Enough for now, it’s too easy.

    The prime directive of all life is to propagate. Western women control the passing of genetics via mate selection and abortion. The patriarchy is largely focused on trying to get in on some of that. All of that testosterone and masculine behavior is to gain enough power to impress and it works. Men are Darwin’s peacocks and their plume is muscle and money. Egalitarianism is certainly a lofty goal that sounds great on paper and perhaps some societies came and may still come close. Hard to image it could work in a hardcore capitalist and very competitive society. Socialism is the future, but rich capitalists will not go down easy.

    As we come closer to women gaining equal economic/political power and just crushing the bottom 80% of men in their feeble attempts to pass their genes on, we will see more and more single mothers and way less fatherhood. We will see all the short, asymmetrical, financially-down beta males without female companions retreat into all sorts of weirdness and sometimes violence. They will live with their mothers. play with guns and fantasize about being superheroes. I think it has started. The disciples of Jordan Peterson.

    I agree, equal opportunity. So who dominates the HR field? Could it be KAREN !!!!

    I kinda feel sorry for all the nice Karens out there. And a whole generation of guys named Dick.

    It comes down to a single question in my mind:

    Should society strive for equal opportunity or for equal outcome (skewed opportunity based on groupings)?

    It’s not just the power structure – it’s also about caring for people’s needs, appropriately. I also think that female or feminine qualities need to be valued for themselves, on their own terms. There are strengths in the apparently vulnerable feminine ways of doing things.

    Personal relationships involve power struggles at some point. When dealing with my partners, a common theme I noticed is passive-aggressive sulking for little or no apparent reason. An apology seems to be the only cure. This ‘silent treatment’ is a terrible strategy in the office. Nobody gives a damn if you sit at your desk and sulk all day. I have counseled my partners that they must bring work issues to the table directly and not rely on osmosis as a method of communication.

    Even in my personal relationships I have learned to avoid apologizing to a sulking partner if I was not notified of my crime.

    My views may be skewed as I worked in engineering and eventually as a manager of engineering teams. A female engineer was the coveted unicorn, a Hispanic female engineer was a golden unicorn. I had one under my charge. She may have gotten a good 1/2 hr of work done a day, but she sure was adept at talking about work during her average 32 of the 40 hr expected work week. When lay-off time came I was given a list of untouchables. Of course she was on that list. Another female engineer, not under my charge filed a charge with HR against one of my best engineers, a white male. He confronted her after checking her work and found she skipped over quality tests that she didn’t know how to run. He should have come to me first, yes. She said he was ‘offensive’ to her. That was enough for the HR dept. and my engineer was put on probation (she was moved to a different job with no ramifications.) He gave notice immediately. I was helpless to save him. There was one female engineer whose husband was a social worker and made less money than her. At every social event he was typically referred to as a loser or ‘bum’ by her and her friends.  Back in the 80s, I had female coworkers who were respected hard workers. I would say the radical shift toward preferential treatment occurred in the mid 90s for large-cap US high tech companies.

    @simon,

    I guess Western women aren’t privileged enough to comprise half the roofers, sewage workers or get cut down by machine guns. Instead they choose to make a living just shaking their asses in a multitude of ways by the millions. The women I know demand that their husbands make way more than they do. How is that supposed to work? Where is the equality? Men are walking paychecks to the divorce industry. Huge granite kitchens and they don’t cook. Talk about privilege. Yet feminists will give a free pass to brown people who absolutely enslave women.

    ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ is a great song by ‘the cure’ that illustrates how society tries to shape distinguishing gender attitudes and behaviors. Generations of parents wanted their kids to be ‘normal’ heterosexuals that fulfill traditional gender roles to avoid religious-based stigmatism. Western religions moralized the statistical norms of human sexuality and gender, unfortunately.

    I agree with much of what the original feminists claim and I could forgive 2nd wave feminists for lots of bullshit claims on female superiority. But normal men certainly do not wish harm upon women and are not ‘toxic’. There is no ‘conspiracy’ to keep women down. Women are just as responsible for the inequalities as men. Their answers are in the mirror. You can’t have your cake and eat it too.

    Well you may feel better living where you live, but these ass clowns are so very fired up around here. I simply can’t bear to even look at my facebook page any more. I don’t think tRump  polls well either. I hope you are correct. If you happen to follow the yahoo commentary on some stories it’s unbelievable.

    I can’t believe Biden is our only best hope, for fuck’s sake. I am eligible for Italian citizenship, Jure Sanguinis. Gonna look into that.
