Dear WindyMind, was your Dad ever in West Virgina? Because my Dad beat the Hell out of me. He was gone 5 days out of 7 and when he got home he got drunk and listened to my Mom who also hated me, then I got the shit beat out of me.

I hate these happy sitcoms like Father Knows Best and Leave it to Beaver all bullshit.

My mom wasn't saint either. She started taking diet pills and then she started popping them like M&M's, I am talking about RGS or street name Black Beauties she was MEAN.What kind of a mother tells her son, I wish you had died instead of your sister!!! I was only 12 started drinking 2 weeks later, family bullshit. I couldn't wait to leave.

I just mention this Windymind because in your post it sounnd's like you got the same treatment at your house. I sympathize with you. My wife was raised by two drunks also, same story.

The Maze of life for Men has become infinity harder.

The rewards of working 50-60 hrs have plummeted to the point that only working 40hrs with more free time for 6-10k less a year has become more appealing.

Women today have been educated by the liberal left in most cases creating a lot of animosity towards men in general.

The initial thought of Marriage has become so tarnished, that moving that direction has a high statistical failure of divorce and financial destruction.

In general non minority Men have the largest bulls-eye on their back hands down. Every special interest group is out to get them and marginalize there progress.

The entire system of the economy has been designed to remove free time, marginalize men, break down families, financially weaken progress to the point where NON-PARTICIPATION IN THIS BULLSHIT HAS THE GREATEST REWARDS.

The corruption, meddling of the devious, professional slackers has reached such a all time high. Having enough to get by with some extra, without all the headaches of all said before is infinitely palatable then actively participating.

This is what I see many young people going through.

Men want to fool around before they marry. They deflower and then when they get tired of that shallowness at 26, then they want a virgin.....and then they find all the "nice girls" are taken.

Hmmm.

One can have anything they want......not everything they want.

I would agree that's the norm but not to me. I was in an 6 year relationship with a girl who I was otherwise happy with until I found out she was cheating nearly the entire time. So yeah now I'm older and haven't yet met a single woman I'd consider marriage material.

Yes the fathers should have beaten their sons. Made them hate to be home. Am I trolling your thread? I don't know any of these men you type about.

the women these days have no souls.the man brings his gifts to the table ie love respect,loyality,work ethic while the woman in todays terms brings I WANT WANT WANT. if he goes to work and puts in long hours,she is not there at the end of the day to comfort him and provide him rest,she is there demanding things and telling him how much he sucks for being gone all day.so he switches it up and stops working so much so he can spend time with her,then he becomes a no good lazy worthless"all you want is sex" scum bag.....yup your son will be broken soon...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35320550


That is quite a leaping presumption you make about ALL women which is just not true.
Having not met this little skank you have conjured up all by yourself in your own mind? Now that's crazy.

I even have the sense after a relationship that was a nightmare not to include ALL MEN in my perceptions cut out any creative reasoning unlike yourself.

It is definitely true women, especially young ones don't understand men at all or relate realistically. I agree with you there as I look back at the mistakes I made about giving a man space and quiet after thinking about a problem all day long.
Even though we both worked all day I had energy to discuss, he didn't, but I didn't understand that.
That is really basic and women don't get it.

What you describe sounds like a woman/girl who was either not versed in healthy male/female discourse by her parents and didn't know any better.

But you can't assume everyone in the world is playing out the same script which will end the same way as yours.

Close enough. But you're sucking air out of the room.

I may be wrong but let me guess. I'm ok being wrong. You got together with the equivalent of a child. Something about daddy too.
She would pull on you like a child. Then when you pulled away and possibly frequently lost your temper, like most guys when they are swamped by a woman she then became insecure (you wanted to find ways to not be home) and you lost respect for her neediness.
She became a vaggina` dentata. A vagina with teeth.

Not all women are like this. When I was married I never demanded I be given things. Which was fine because I really got nothing for my trouble.
I stand by what I said. HELP EACH OTHER. That's what relationships are for. Someone gives a dam about you.
 Quoting: DawaSatso


I was'nt really talking about me per se,just all the broken lifes that have come from the hands of cold hearted women.I never looked at a woman as a vigina with teeth,nor do i engauge in arguments,nor do i lose my temper.infact when my ex would try to start a fight for no reason I would just walk away.she hated that because she could'nt get me to argue.Im a very logical and reasonable person.If it does'nt make sense ie wasted time arguing about nothing then I just don't partake in it..

IMO it all started going downhill when living costs got so high most families need both parents to work.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35500411


Yes . . . I agree this is an important issue . . . but why boys being more troubled??coffee4
 Quoting: George B


Because when women began to HAVE to work outside the home, men lost their purpose and their place in life.

Think of it this way. What state would the women in this country be in if men all of a sudden started having babies? How would they feel. Would they feel the need to continue to have children? What for, if the men are now doing it?? So what is there role now? This is how confusion is born and reigns supreme! When we change the roles that God has given us to play. A play must have a director, actors must have individual roles, or you have utter chaos. Same with a ship, a military unit or any other kind of analogy you can think of that has rank and structure. So must go the home!
 Quoting: Lady Wolf


Totally agree.

Plus, speaking as a parent of two late 20s men and a retired educator, schools denigrate boys mercilessly. You get what you cynically predict, especially in an environment dominated by female teachers.

But mainly, it's the engineered feminist agenda that's halved salaries over the last 30-40 years and planted this bizarre notion in our minds that you can just dump your kids in nurseries whilst you 'have it all'.

Well, 'having it all' also means emotionally deprived and retarded youngsters who don't have the social and psychological skills to navigate through life.

Another thought - how come it's fine for some ethnic minorities to retain the traditional family structure whilst it's the whites and blacks who have been forced to adopt the feminist plan for family destruction...?

I think this generation has more "wants" than previous generations so, they may think it's harder to achieve those wants. For the most part, I see my generation as very materialistic, superficial, and self-centered. They are raising their kids to be the same or worse. My husband is a MAN, he feels if I have to work, he's not doing his job. Men like that are few and far between nowadays because so many women have lost their true value. They don't know how to make the role of a "stay-at-home" a job, they've become too egotistical to find satisfaction in the role they were designed to play . Feminism is the root of everything that's wrong with society today. SAD...
 Quoting: Melrox


Wow!!! You wouldn't be very welcome at many health spas . . . however, I think you have some very good points . . . the change of roles of women especially their almost mandatory entry into the workforce has had devastating effects on the family . . . however, why has this caused Young Men to throw in the towel but not women??peace
 Quoting: George B


I'll answer that and I know I'm going to take a lot of flack for it. But women are emotionally stronger than men. Men might be better equipped physically than women, but women are the emotional power houses. Why? because we embrace our emotions, we don't burry them. We learn from early childhood how to deal with them head on. Unlike men who are taught as boys to suppress them. Basically...when going gets tough, the men shut down. The woman find their independent spirit and keep fighting for themselves and their children.

Now with that said, I will also acknowledge the fact that men have been brow beaten to death by society. I.E. the work place, the courts, even their own homes. Many of them have been raised by single mother's and with no father or father figure to show them HOW to be a man, they're left to figure it out on their own or through super heros which is setting them up for failure, as most super heros have super natural powers. Something they do not. Or they will look to male celebrities. Now how much are they going to learn from men who seem to "have it all" and because of this, many of those celebrities have " the world owes me a living" attitude, because they had everything handed to them on a silver platter.

It boils down to this. Why have men become the second class citizens in our Western society? They CONTROL the government! THEY make the laws! What does this tell you?
 Quoting: Lady Wolf


once an auther was asked,how do you write women so well?he says,i think of a man then i take away reason and accountibility.women are def emotional but powerhouses?the problem is women all emotion to take over logic and reason.they end up seeing the world in a emotional state rather and a logical one.this causes many problems.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35320550


lol I have to agree with you here. But what happens when you put all that raw emotion and sound logic together? You have balance. It's true. And I will tell you why. A woman's emotional side will bring out the protective side of a man, he will do this by sharing his logic with her about what is so upsetting to her. She in turn won't feel so out of control about the situation and will lean on his strength. He in turn will feel appreciated and loved for that strength and show her love back. The love he shows her helps her to keep her emotions in check and put her trust in him to take care of her and be there for future emotional upsets. Do you see how that works? How that is SUPPOSED to create balance and harmony. God made us different for a reason. But many people don't want to hear that. To them I just say, well...look around you at what society has become and ask yourself..do you like what you see?? ;0)

it is about give and take,men need diffrent things than women.women should know this.I f not for the built in simple needs of a man what use would a woman have to him other than those...ie love,affection,intimacy,best friend we can tell the things we would never tell anyone else.we want a mate for those reasons.women seem to say that alot to but then they really don't seem to want those things as much as a man.

if it were not for those needs a man has we would'nt ever really need to have a woman around.we can do everything we need to live by ourselfs,as for women....no they need men.I know you will say thats not true,but dare I remind you that the only reason you have the freedoms you have IS because of men.the laws passed to help you came from men.IF this was a land with out law like the wild women would be slaves and nothing more if they did'nt do as men wanted them to do.thats the plain and simple facts..call it sucking the air out of the room all ya like but you can't fight truth.

Of coure young girls today do not understand men. They weren't raised with FATHERS!

I'm sorry but it is true! A child needs to KNOW and UNDERSTAND the roles of BOTH genders. And that can ONLY happen with BOTH parents! Period! Now before I get crucified, my hat's off to you single parents out there who have had no choice with this. Either through the death of your spouse, your spouse leaving you, or you being forced to leave your spouse because of abuse. I'm talking about the ones who see a man as nothing more than a sperm donor and a monthly stipend!! It just sickens me!

I'm sorry but it is true! A child needs to KNOW and UNDERSTAND the roles of BOTH genders. And that can ONLY happen with BOTH parents! Period! Now before I get crucified, my hat's off to you single parents out there who have had no choice with this. Either through the death of your spouse, your spouse leaving you, or you being forced to leave your spouse because of abuse. I'm talking about the ones who see a man as nothing more than a sperm donor and a monthly stipend!! It just sickens me!

I am sick and tired of having a feminized agenda being shoved down my throat through college. So I am taking it to the next level. I now sit down to pee, I tell my girlfriend 'hey I wanna know how hard it is to be a women and were equal right? so I can now sit down and pee. I wanna feel the pain women feel'. That is how rediculous the feminist thoughts have become.

A theory I thought was funny but could hold some truth idk how stuff is transferred through pee. But Rush Limbaugh said something along the lines of men are not men anymore because women birth control are being transferred back to our water supply so when we drink the water we are in essence getting minuscule amounts of birth control. Wow that would be crazy right?

That is quite a leaping presumption you make about ALL women which is just not true.
Having not met this little skank you have conjured up all by yourself in your own mind? Now that's crazy.

I even have the sense after a relationship that was a nightmare not to include ALL MEN in my perceptions cut out any creative reasoning unlike yourself.

It is definitely true women, especially young ones don't understand men at all or relate realistically. I agree with you there as I look back at the mistakes I made about giving a man space and quiet after thinking about a problem all day long.
Even though we both worked all day I had energy to discuss, he didn't, but I didn't understand that.
That is really basic and women don't get it.
Robert Bly said "give a man one sentence or two, more than that he will put a bag over his head and run away".

What you describe sounds like a woman/girl who was either not versed in healthy male/female discourse by her parents and didn't know any better.

But you can't assume everyone in the world is playing out the same script which will end the same way as yours.

I may be wrong but let me guess. I'm ok being wrong. You got together with the equivalent of a child. Something about daddy too.
She would pull on you like a child. Then when you pulled away and possibly frequently lost your temper, like most guys when they are swamped by a woman she then became insecure (you wanted to find ways to not be home) and you lost respect for her neediness.
She became a vaggina` dentata. A vagina with teeth.

Not all women are like this. When I was married I never demanded I be given things. Which was fine because I really got nothing for my trouble.

personally i think we should all be working a 4 or 5 hour work day PERIOD! None of this 8 hour crap. which really eeks out to be around 10 when you include travel time and lunch. women having careers isn't the problem.

a lot of it has to do with sharing the responsibilities of the raising of the kids and houshold. if we all worked 4 or 5 hours a day and the ceo's made 12 million instead of 24 million and the company made a profit of 1 billion instead of 5 billion - then we could have a society where there was time enough for family, children, husbands to nurture their kids, and moms to follow their dreams.

having one should not mutually exclude the other. if we wree to stand up to the elite control of our lives, we COULD build a new world where more people worked, and more people were successful and happy.

I don't know about the world at large, but my husband, I can tell you his issues.
Living with him is like living with a child most of the time.
He never holds a job long and when he does make it past 6 months he starts self sabotaging it.
I tried to be a homemaker as that role fulfills me completely but he won't allow it for long.
He will bitch and complain that we need more money and when I've heard enough and go back to work he quits his job within a few weeks every time.
Whether I am working or not I am still the one who cleans, cooks, takes care of him, of anything needed done, and takes care of our pets.
He will spend all his time playing games, getting f*d up, porn, and sleeping.
He never picks up after himself or does anything I ask him to.
If he does it may be months later after asking and then it is done begrudgingly.
Sex?
Maybe once every 2-3 months if lucky.
I'm sure his hand gets more sex than I do
He has been like this since the day we met and when I was in my younger days that was fine but I grew up.
We are now in our mid 30's and nothing much has changed.
He lies to me and everyone else plus he steals from places he works and lies to me about that too.
Then he gets caught and fired and places the blame on me as to why there is no money.
I can tell you with 100% truthfulness that if the world don't end and our species continues on then the next time I marry it will be with an older man who is mature.
In fact I would urge all women who are dating these man boys to please reconsider.
Take it from me and learn from my mistakes that it will only bring you pain in the future.
Marry someone who can and will take care of themselves not some boy who is only leaving one mamma for another.

Re: Why are there so many "failure-to-Launch Young Men" .. . .? . . .select the most likely reason . ..
as there is only one answer allowed, Id have to go with feminism. the constraints feminism puts on men, how they behave, constant shaming through the media, the law and society ready to slam down on men, are all restrictive factors.
a man and a woman go out, have a drink, end up n bed, she regrets it, cries rape..he ends up in court!
thats one scenario. feminism has backfired, you go guurrrlll!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34616551


"Feminists", otherwise known as "Female Supremacists", started with a reasonable goal, such as "equal pay for equal work". The best example of this is piecework, and that was thrown out by the liberal equivalents from the 19th century.

Today, even incompetent old hags like the one in charge of DHS get to pretend competence, yet their only claim to fame is their vagina, shriveled as it may be.

Boys are not allowed or encouraged to excel, and girls are almost forced to. The natural order of things is upside down, and will remain that way until girls get put back in their place through any of a thousand reasons from depression to war. When they get thrown back in the kitchen and bedroom where they belong, it won't be by girlie men - it will be by savage brutish men - probably from outside our country. The price of defying natural law is very high.

Prize testosterone and all it entails, and shun girls that try to be men.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35581840


I will take flack from other female posters for this, but the pendulum has swung way too far in the opposite direction and for far too long. Society and this country is crumbling because of it!! AC you paint a grim picture and with misogynistic undertones, but for purposes of this discussion and the grim state we now find ourselves in...I would have to agree with this assessment.
 Quoting: Lady Wolf


Yes, I'm a female and I despise feminism. All it has done is make women have to work harder which results in them being way more grouchy and men being afraid to be real men.

So you bet more bitches and fewer manly men. Sad, and also the public school training children to be mediocre instead of outstanding.
 Quoting: Delfi 1200804


Glad to know I'm not alone, but sadly I feel that you and I are a dying breed. I'll take it one step further. The girls who are raised without fathers and grow up not knowing what a real man is, only know one thing about men and that's exactly the thing their parents or single mother's taught them! That men can not be counted on to be there on a consistent basis. That men are only good for one thing, a pay check and that men are abusers of women, else why would mommy have left daddy? So what do they go and look for? A man who is rich, who cheats on them, who abuses them. And when they find they don't like that, The whole ugly cycle starts all over again, with their own fatherless children. Wash rinse and repeat. Very sad:( Same with the boys. They're taught to emulate the picture of their absent father's that has been painted for them by their angry mothers. And with no father in the picture to teach them what it means to be a real man, they also emulate their mothers and become more effeminate. OR they emulate their absent father, and start the cycle all over again by looking for dysfunctional women who were raise the same way they were.

Yes . . . I agree this is an important issue . . . but why boys being more troubled??coffee4
 Quoting: George B


Because when women began to HAVE to work outside the home, men lost their purpose and their place in life.

Think of it this way. What state would the women in this country be in if men all of a sudden started having babies? How would they feel. Would they feel the need to continue to have children? What for, if the men are now doing it?? So what is there role now? This is how confusion is born and reigns supreme! When we change the roles that God has given us to play. A play must have a director, actors must have individual roles, or you have utter chaos. Same with a ship, a military unit or any other kind of analogy you can think of that has rank and structure. So must go the home!
 Quoting: Lady Wolf


you said something that is key here.when women began to work outside the home.see women have been sold this thought that they need to be equal to a man outside the home and provide like a man.it's all bs and propaganda,notice how a man alone used to be able to provide plenty for his family while the mother stayed home to provide the love and care of the home?notice now how it takes both wife and husband working and the family hardly gets by on the pay.they cut pay back to where both man and woman HAVE to work in a family just to pay bills week to week.so through propaganda they doubled the work force.2 for 1 speicals...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35320550


Yep and their plan has been VERY successful! What's more...they didn't have to lift a finger to do this. All they had to do was just change the programming a bit, literally!

Think back to early "sit coms" I'm speaking to the 40 somethings and older crowed here.

One Day at a Time, (plot single divorced mom raising two teen girls)
Mary Tyler Moor (plot, single girls as roommates who have been screwed over by men, the struggles Mary faces by MEN as she keeps hitting the "well touted, glass ceiling" at her job.)
Maude, (plot, the first, if subtle, TV feminist)
Fast forward a bit, Married with Children (Plot, a hen pecked husband made to look stupid in every scene. A wife who uses and abuses him and kids who have no respect for him only pity, all wrapped up in "comedy.)
In comes satellite TV, and the Life Time network. Nearly every movie on that network was man hating or man bashing. Everything from "dead beat dads" to abusive boyfriends, to husband who murder their wives and kidnap their kids. Total and complete family disfunction. And don't even get me started on TV talk shows like Jerry Springer!! Who's watching these shows? Why stay at home moms of course! AND their children!

I was dating a chick a few months ago who made more $ than I did but fully expected me to pay for our dates, buy her things, etc. It blew me mind and the relationship didn't last too long. Women bring men down. It's a sad reality but it's true.

So why don't they do it for themselves? Forget about blaming women for a minute....Why don't these young men you are describing develop themselves for their own well being?

Because they don't know how. They have been raised by women. They did not have the benefit of a father to teach them how to be real men and how to choose healthy relationships. They grow up emulating their mothers.

case in point,I was raised by my father.my brothers were raised by their moms 2 brothers.both along with my cousins all raised mainly by their mom.grew up never leaving the nest always whining about how they are owed something and are lazy drugged out bums.I on the other hand loved my dad we were best friends He taught me to be a spounge for knowledge.very very strong work ethic,never depend on anyone do everything yourself and if help is there fine thats a bonus.don't take hand out and give to help out when you see someone in need.I have never taken 1 sip of a beer nor 1 puff of any drug or cigg.I have values and morals that I will fight to the death over.Im a leader not a follower,I am not luke warm....

That may have been true in your case, but not mine. My mom was the one that pushed all of the kids to get part time jobs in high school and to be independent.

If women are doing so much better than men, hypothetically, then wouldn't they push their sons to do well also?

At some point, people need to stop blaming their parents, their significant others (or lack thereof), the government, etc. and take responsibility for themselves.

We can see this lack of taking responsibility from all segments of society and all walks of life. It is not a gender thing. This is part of our collective 'growing up' on a global level, I believe. We need to take responsibility for the mess that we are in globally, envision new and creative solutions, and collectively start putting them into action.

Re: Why are there so many "failure-to-Launch Young Men" .. . .? . . .select the most likely reason . ..
IMO it all started going downhill when living costs got so high most families need both parents to work.

Yes . . . I agree this is an important issue . . . but why boys being more troubled??coffee4
 Quoting: George B


Because when women began to HAVE to work outside the home, men lost their purpose and their place in life.

Think of it this way. What state would the women in this country be in if men all of a sudden started having babies? How would they feel. Would they feel the need to continue to have children? What for, if the men are now doing it?? So what is there role now? This is how confusion is born and reigns supreme! When we change the roles that God has given us to play. A play must have a director, actors must have individual roles, or you have utter chaos. Same with a ship, a military unit or any other kind of analogy you can think of that has rank and structure. So must go the home!
 Quoting: Lady Wolf


Totally agree.

Plus, speaking as a parent of two late 20s men and a retired educator, schools denigrate boys mercilessly. You get what you cynically predict, especially in an environment dominated by female teachers.

But mainly, it's the engineered feminist agenda that's halved salaries over the last 30-40 years and planted this bizarre notion in our minds that you can just dump your kids in nurseries whilst you 'have it all'.

Well, 'having it all' also means emotionally deprived and retarded youngsters who don't have the social and psychological skills to navigate through life.

Another thought - how come it's fine for some ethnic minorities to retain the traditional family structure whilst it's the whites and blacks who have been forced to adopt the feminist plan for family destruction...?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19198791


Absolutely! And this is what I think and I KNOW I will be hated for saying this but ladies...it just needs to be said!

DON'T HAVE CHILDREN IF YOU DON'T WANT TO STAY HOME WITH THEM AND RAISE THEM. PERIOD! You can't have it both ways no matter what society and the MSM tells you! Why would you even want to? Isn't the point of having children to experience motherhood in all of its glory, challenges, laughter, tears, miles stones, memories etc. etc. etc. If not, then why do it??? Serious question! If you don't want to take on the job, then don't have kids. It really is that simple.

If you have kids, you OWE them a well balanced home with well define roles so that they are not thrown into institutions. Do you really trust the government that much as to LET them raise YOUR children? Because that is what you do when you become a working mom. Maybe if we women would take back control of our homes, than the government would be FORCED to employ more men/fathers and our homes would be in harmony again with a well balanced society in the future!
