Anyhamsterfest, here's another epic logical fail of a comment from the cushy land of make-believe, and my response to it:
So are you a Shero or a Booblet? Tell me, if feminism is so pro-male, why is its root spelled f-e-m? Oooh! Oooh! I know! Because it likes only feminine men?
I'm not going to be dragged into a middle-school (read: "girly") debate of inconsequential minutiae, but I will address a bit of the myth upon which your assumptions are based.
First off, read this:
Now, if feminism isn't anti-male, why are the results of MAINSTREAM feminism so repressive (dare I say "oppressive?") of men?
"But if I am having all this sex, how am I also going to bed alone with my vibrator?"
...again, reading comprehension?
You'll be able to have all the sex you want while you're young and supple, but along about 30-ish, when you're ready to "settle down," you will NOT be impressed by the caliber of men who are still interested in you used-up pussy. Sex first, vibrator later. M'kay? Oh, and your female friend in a sexless marriage? Either she's abnormal or he's abnormal. Note the prefix "ab." Outliers do not represent the norm. I understand this is hard for indoctrinated femmies to understand, because your entire ideology is based upon the preferences of a minority of women, but try to stretch your atrophied brain. Plus, I know, math is hard.
"We have been working over a century to get out from underneath the Neanderthal mentality"
Be careful what you wish for, dearie. That neanderthal mentality is why you don't live in a grass hut, and aren't likely to die young. I know you think masculine men are a pain in the ass, but masculine men pay most of your bills, one way or another, unless you are a VERY unusual woman. If you have a high-paying private sector job, there is probably at least a half dozen men better qualified than you, who were denied that job so that it could be given to a woman, regardless of merit. Unless of course you work in the sort of field that doesn't attract many men. Then again, most of those fields are NOT well paid, but a few are. And most of the female-centric fields that ARE highly paid, are almost entirely dependent upon either the income of the clientele's husbands, or upon the income of a clientele whose jobs are dependent on affirmative action or direct taxpayer funding. Big fish, small pond. The pond would dry up without "neanderthals."
It is that "neanderthal mentality" which keeps you safe when you leave home (built by men.) That's right. The majority of law enforcement officers (who often commit violence against men at your command) are men who chose their field because of their strong protective instincts.
It is that "neanderthal mentality" which motivated men to build the cars/trains/buses you use to navigate the streets in relative safety, so you don't have to be exposed to the weather and to human predators on your way to work.
It is that "neanderthal mentality" which built the government that collects the taxes and provides public sector jobs where women don't have to compete with men for employment.
Use your imagination. Or better yet, hire a (male, armed) bodyguard and travel to a third world country where women AND MEN are not protected by government, from either the harsh realities of nature, or from human predators. Try to visualize a world where YOU, and maybe a band of your pals, are responsible for every single aspect of your survival. (And keep in mind that your "enemies" have plenty of pals as well.) You might survive, but you would likely not prosper. without the protection of those "neanderthals," people who are smarter, stronger, more ambitious, and more organized than you, would be helping themselves to your survival resources - so THEY could survive.
Feminism wants you to think that it's some sort of humanist ideal, but it simply could not exist if those "neanderthals" did not permit it. Feminism is a social construct; it is a fantasy. It's a totally cool swing set and fort in one's parents' securely fenced back yard. It's a playhouse with a plastic tea set in the playroom. Not one single aspect of feminism could exist without the protection of those who have the "neanderthal mentality."
Are men perfect? No. Is it always fun to be supportive of the men who keep you warm and well-fed. Hell no! It's a fucking chore! That's right, it's WORK, and it doesn't always feeeeeel rewarding. (That's the true nature of work and you'd know that if you didn't live under the cozy protection of "neanderthals.") Work is what gets you from one end of life to the other, and some days, work sucks. The difference between men and women in modern society, is that women actually have the choice to avoid the most unpleasant types of work,
and men don't.
Men suck it up and do their share because nobody is going to do it for them. Then they suck it up further and do most women's share - either because the government will jail them if the don't (and pay for it with their own tax dollars) or because they want a family and they understand that that (often sucky, unrewarding) WORK is required to support a family.
Miss Kae, I would guess that you are an urban or suburban teen or twentysomething who has never been responsible for much of anything (except maybe studying hard to succeed in the schools built and paid for by "neanderthals," and perhaps missing a few parties to work at a relatively easy job.) Sadly, it's also possible that you are a chronologically mature woman who has the mentality of a suburban teen. You see, there are plenty such women in existence because they have been sheltered from responsibility by "neanderthals."
