Maybe it's just me, but it seems many males these days seem to be desperately obsessed with marriage or a long-term relationship. In fact, while driving to the gym yesterday, I saw a bumper sticker with the Promise Keepers' standard self-affirming propaganda: "I LOVE MY WIFE" was slapped to the back of an SUV. I thought about this for a second; then I heard the words of Chris Rock echoing in my head: "YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO LUV YOUR WIFE YOU DUMB MUTHA******! WHAT DO YOU WANT, A COOKIE?" Now, here?s the kicker: Unlike men, the vast majority of women in western society aren't preoccupied with improving themselves to be better mates. They're not slapping "I LOVE MY HUSBAND" bumper stickers on their SUVs. They're not posting responses to threads asking if it's possible to be faithful to a husband. They're not buying books on how to be a better love maker, how to be a better homemaker, or how to be a better wife. The fact is, women are buying books and subscribing to magazines on how to change YOU, the man, into their idealized concept of a husband, and when you predispose yourself to identifying with their expectations (before you've even met them!), women?s efforts are made that much easier. Men, we have to pull our heads out of our collective butts and stop seeing marriage or a long-term relationship as a goal state--the feminine ideal. One thing I notice is that most male threads on revolve around idealizing marriage or a LTR as some lofty achievement, but all this does is place a woman on a pedestal and appear to make a wimpy, subservient man legitimate because he's striving for something that looks like integrity. And I?m not the only man on this forum who thinks that such spin derives from social feminization. Now, I admit that most men love to rage against the ubiquitous, feminizing influence in our culture on any variety of fronts. Additionally, most men I know swell with a self-righteous indignation about how "feminist women" have ruined society. However, American men are increasingly being perceived as subservient to American women. Television commercials, particularly, are fraught with feminism, portraying men as stupid, lazy automatons who are berated and abused by women (check out the new Blackberry commercial); meanwhile, almost every commercial I see features women as hard-working sexy intellectuals. Feminization in full force! Clearly, women have become men, and men have become women. These days, I hear and read about more men than women desperately searching for an ideal partner that they've been sold on for the better part of their lives. You don?t believe me? Just casually troll any online matchmaking site (like this one), and you'll see a far higher concentration of male members than female members pleading for the ideal partner. Many men try to sell themselves, responding to attractive womens' blogs like dogs in heat. All of this is a result of feminization in society. So for the sake of mankind and the futures of your sons, please guys: pull your head out of your butt and refuse to make marriage and LTRs such a dominant priority in our lives. I'm not saying don't get married or entertain a LTR, for there's nothing wrong with monogamy (when you're prepared for it). I'm just saying let them be a by-product of your life's perspective. Instead, strive toward your personal goals; improve your mind, body, and spirit; enjoy the confidence that comes from that strength. Women want to marry MEN, not other women. Stop molding yourselves into what you think a woman wants from a guy/husband/BF under the guise of "striving to be a man of integrity." Instead, be a man of integrity by defining yourself and your own direction, even when it takes balls to do things that seem counterintuitive to what feminization has conditioned into you.

HPD you,re right about the issue of women trying to act like men in today,s society and for some years before now.However Marriage is,nt the problem it,s politics.It starts with girls being conditioned from an early age to get good grades at school,study hard,go to colledge,get a 'career' and be the 'boss'at work and at home.Their marriage choices are to all intents and purposes often arranged to suit this social climbing by the pressure exerted by their ambitious parents.The husband will usually be another graduate of the 'right' class and within the 'right'age range to provide the 'right' social standing.Children come too late,for the mother, in the relationship (30,s) and divorce at 40 something goes with the territory usually..These 'career girls' are best avoided.The girls to go for are the ones who rebel against this crap and who prefer the idea of young Motherhood and being a housewife while the men go to work..These are the girls who prefer sex to school books,they wear short skirts not trousers.But do you know what really annoys me?it,s when you find a girl who looks like she,s the 'real thing'but the brainwashers have got to her first.There,s nothing worse than seeing a gorgeous young woman who,s personality consists of talking about her 'ambition' to have a degree and be a scientist/company director or whatever.When what I,m looking for is a girl who wants my kids and who wants to raise them properly.In other words a decent, old fashioned, working class wife.A wife who marries for love not money,the age of her husband and/or his looks.That,s a trucker,s wife and like us they,re a dying breed and that is one of the reasons why I,m still unhappily single.

Re: VenusDarkStar write: HPD...You do not know my education level and a piece of paper obviously did YOU no good, so why would I take cheap lessons from you? You really make me laugh. Thanks for the entertainment value anyway.

C'mon now VDS...you pointed out my spelling error, for which I thanked you, and I pointed your grammar error, for which you have denied and pouted. All day long, my students volunteer answers, some of which are incorrect; however, they learn from their mistakes: They acknowledge the error and move on. VDS, beneath those layers of comic satire and facial makeup exists a thoughtful and intelligent woman, but you have displayed an unwillingness to admit your mistakes and move on. I cannot respect anyone who refuses to admit her mistakes. Sorry, but there's one important lesson you need to learn about life: Admit your mistakes and move on, rather than deny and pout. You'll earn respect by admitting your mistakes and learning from them. You'll earn laughter and derision when you deny and pout about your mistakes. If I were religious, I'd pray for you. Heck, I might pray for you anyway, just in case there is a god. HPD

Re: helena2006 write: Your logic is a little flawed and even took a detour. That is not what I said and as such there is no real response. Get married and have a stay-at-home wife, LOL. I do believe these women are still out there and in quite large numbers. However you are starting to sound like a control freak and someone who will predicate the set of mutual behaviours you and your spouse will endorse. Freedom is sooo hard to give up!

Helena: Thanks for the advice. Since you're looking out for me, please help me out: If you know any woman in your neighborhood who is just as pretty as you and is about 15 years younger, please forward her my agematch.com profile. Got a submissive, barefoot, and unconditionally commandable younger sister?

Re: VenusDarkStar write: No you are quite incorrect HPD. Someone who can't even spell a word that is allegedly so important to him has no right to correct my grammar. My quotation marks are placed correctly, because the entire sentence was not a quote...just the word "marriage".

hmmm... Obviously, you're an intelligent woman, but you're not college educated, so I won't hold that one against you. VDS, periods and commas are ALWAYS inserted inside the quotation marks, even when the ending word of a sentence is quoted: Shakespeare said, "To be or not to be." See? :) Question marks, etc. are exempted from this rule only when they are not part of the quote: Did Shakespeare say, "To be or not to be"? See? :) AddItionally, quotation marks should NOT be used to draw attention to words (which you incorrectly did :) ). Look up these rules in the grammar handbooks. Read any book or study the Net, and you'll see that commas and periods are ALWAYS inserted inside the quotation mark. If you need grammar lessons, I charge $25 an hour; you live in CA, so that should seem cheap. :)

Re: helena2006 write: All of which basically explains, HPD, why you are not married and probably never will be with your approach to the opposite sex. Perhaps stick to supermarket pick-up lines and wherever else the come-on works, and forget the stay-at-home little lady, the kids, mortgage etc. - you sound as if you are a dedicated bachelor.

My preferring that women stay at home automatically bans me from marraige...? You mean NO women in this country would rather stay at home? Thanks for the advice, but I'll keep an eye out for the future lucky lady who chooses to be with me for ME instead of a career.

Re: VenusDarkStar write: I'm bored with this blog. ***YAWN*** And it's MARRIAGE, not "marraige".

Thanks, VDS. By the way, insert periods and commas INSIDE quotation marks, not OUTSIDE. :)

YGS: By choosing marraige, women AND men "procure" (your word) one another. They legally obtain one another, and each vows to care for the other. They are legally responsible for each other's well-being. Ideally, for me, this involves the man working and the woman caring for the children. This makes perfect sense to me. I see no problem with that whatsoever. Do you have a problem with this? Why? It's impossible to gauge which sex is more materialistic. I think that's an individual thing. But, I do think many women work in order to provide themselves and their family a bigger house, car, etc. One's financial status (i.e. how much stuff one has) epitomizes success in many ameRICHan's minds. Women have been duped into thinking that establishing a career (rather than raising children) leads to "happiness"; but this aMErican generation is learning that a huge house, a nice car, a boob job, etc. do not lead to happiness. I believe that loving your family and working a job that makes you feel useful lead to happiness; thus, women should raise children. Unfortunately, many jobs in aMErica are not designed to make one feel useful. Companies expect one to produce. Individuality be damned. There are many crappy jobs that aMEricans endure every day. A woman spending her day working said crappy job and then coming home in the evenings to be with her children makes absolutely no sense to me. When it comes to making a living, aMEricans are, by and large, very stupid, YGS. Most never think how imooral their professions are. For example, my friend sells pharmaceuticals, and she feels no remorse whatsoever. I told her, "Do you know how evil that is, denying people who really need that medicine?" Yet, this woman wonders why she feels empty inside. "Spend more time with your freaking kids instead of pimping drugs to physicans," is what I want to tell her. Women have been duped into thinking that men and women have to work in order to pay the bills, etc. Not true! The reason why men and women work is because aMEricans simply want more stuff, and they have a lot of debt to pay...single-earning income familes used to be the way, and I didn't think the country was falling apart, like I feel it is today. 2 + 2= 4.

VDS: OK, so maybe TV isn't a good technological example. But I'm right that this generation is more materialistic. Do you agree? Every one of my generation contemporaries concede that he or she has more then his or her parents. Homes are bigger, right? Do you agree? (Don't make me have to show proof :)

YGS: You are obviously well-read, and I appreciate the intelligence and passion with which you use to defend and argue your points. Yes, materialism represented a main component of 1950's America, but are you actually saying those 1950's housewives were more materialistic than today's "independent" women? I have read many opinions and have seen with mine own eyes how materialism in America has reached unprecedented levels: Do you not see that the houses are much bigger? How many 1950's households owned a single tv? Two cars? A 2,000 square foot home? AFFLUENZA is the post-modern American curse, YGS, and excuse me for sounding f'kin wacky about it, but people have too much and I believe that our material-centric life is obviously encumbering our rationale and life essence. Why can a housewife not be free? How does this oppress or "procure" women to their husbands? Does anyone force women to marry men?

HDD: We white men still have the power, but in many ways I'm not proud about that because white men have indeed oppressed, murdered, etc. But your generation, HDD, seems o.k. to me; you're not nearly as materialistic or densensitized as the current generation because you didn't sit on your a$$es watching t.v. while your parents worked. Mind you: nothing's perfect. But, goshdarnit! I'm tired of people declaiming the 50's so-called Leave It to Beaver generation; what was so bad about compared to today's society? Are the women of today happy, HDD? Are none of them committing suicide? No society is perfect. You were oppressed? LOL...that's a freaking joke. Where'd you grow up? Saudi Arabia? (the repressive anti-women nation from which you collect your oil to attend your job, BTW). Read this: Many men of your father's generation served the war and then returned to the US and provided for their families. Is this the the kind of repression "you witnessed first hand?" Clearly, HDD, you're projecting your childhood misfortunes on that whole 50's parenthood generation. In reality, your folks weren't any worse than today's parents. But they were better, I think. The problem with our "gender equality" generation is that it's spoiled. You and many millions of 50's adolescents had access to the good life (and I don't care what you say; visit India and you'll know what poverty and repression really are), and it spoiled you. Your parents entreated you to material comforts because they loved you, and now you're intensifying this materialistic culture to your children--and it's a rampant and much more material-centered type of materialism, for sure. The country hasn't had to deploy hundreds of thousands of troops since WWII, but when it does have to draft again (and it can happen anytime), you're likely going to appreciate we repressive and evil men (the ones who are expected to sacrifice their lives, which you seem to have a problem acknowledging or remembering.) Equality schmaquality. Society begins and ends with men, but because women are free and open-minded in the USA, you don;t want to acknowledge how much you need us. Whatever. Yes, you recycle, you ride your bike, you don't own an expensive ring, etc. That's great. What do you do for income, and how much money do you make each year? Have you EVER owned an expensive ring, HDD? Have you ever longed for one? You're a voice against evil? That's good, too, but what does that amount to? Evil is evil; it doesn't matter if you merely voice your opinins against it. You can't stop evil from forming. Most people are against murder, greed, etc. What's so great about that? "I'm not an evil person because I oppose evil." OK. Great. Wow. You ask, What do I do? I teach college students. Have you ever taught? I can get into a whole philosophy about the unique PROFESSION of teaching, and what kind of person it takes to teach (a very special and committed one), but I'll just say that I love what I do, and I like to think that I influence some of them. Wanna know a secret? Teacher's are NOT underpaid. I live very modestly, HDD...I actually own one fork and two tupperware containers; my mother begged me to allow her to buy me a washer and dryer, but I need nothing else in life right now but a classroon full of students and a library from which I can sign out books of my choosing. I may not recycle or ride my bike to the store (to accumulate more materila items, BTW), but I live and teach from the gut. I say and live what I feel.

Hey V, I know....LOL....it's ludicrous. His contradictions are amusing....:-) I wonder if he'll pay her what her many jobs are worth to be a stay at home wife...$138,000+ I just read somewhere...this from someone who complains about paying for a meal......hilarious! HPD, All I can say to you is "whatever"! There were no "civil" or "women's" rights in the oh so glorious 50's. You "white men" had all of the control and wielded it it with impunity. You weren't there, you didn't live it, I did. I saw and experienced the oppression first hand and again, I reiterate, I don't embrace the rampant materialism you keep insisting I am all about. I recycle, shop second-hand most of the time, buy organic as much as possible, use recycled paper products, conserve energy by shopping on my bike, etc, etc. I have been fighting against it all of my life. My wonderful, hard-working grandfather and mother taught me at a very early age about what really matters and instilled in me a true appreciation of the wonder and beauty of nature and ALL living things. BTW: Don't own an expensive ring and do all I can to be a voice against expolitation in the workplace and violence against women, children and animals. What do you do? Peace, Dreamer

VDS: I absolutely love women. I love interacting with women, flirting, kissing, etc., and I like to think I'm good at it. Women may know how to build stuff, but most of them would rather not because in my opinion, a woman is not made for building; she is made for nurturing (OMG! How sexist, right?) I mean nurturing in the sense of taking care of her children, etc. LOL...If my wife stayed at home and raised our children (which I prefer), my salary would be her salary. I would expect her to manage the finances, though. :)

HDD: I think we'll just have to agree to disagree. You're just as passionate as I am about this whole gender role issue. I don't agree with much that you say, but at least you speak your mind. Materialism is every American's #1 agenda; as I've already written, American has no sense of political or social worthiness. Americans are clinging to the final frontier of Democracy, and it's called CONSUMERISM. You just don't accept that materialism is the new American religion because it's easier for you to deny it. The reason wars are fought usually comes down to one issue: resources. For nearly 30 years now, Americans have exploited other people in far away lands because Americans want to look good, own a big house, and drive a nice car. That's why women work today, but that's just my opinion. Over the past 20 years in America, I've seen the houses, cars, and wallets get bigger, while the quality of the family unit gets smaller. Yes, much of the 50's was fake, but not every woman was treated like your mother, HDD. You are insulting past generations whose main goal was to care for their children and raise them with some freaking dignity. How bad was that 50's world compared to today's? Which one would you rather belong to? Personally, I detest the MTV-violent-material-moron artist world in which we reside today. We have too much of everything. Parents--not strangers--need to care for their children. What's the problem with that? Did your mother and father HAVE to earn dual incomes? Did they HAVE to own 2 (or 3) cars? A state-of-the-art t.v.? I read a student's research paper the other day, and in it she claims that the majority of households own 2 televisions; it's not hard for me to believe that. Did your parents HAVE to own 2 t.v.s? Please. Materialism has run amok in this nation; to deny it futile. Wearing an expensive ring, HDD? If so, donate it to charity because that ring was likely extracted from the African earth by a mineworker who is likely being exploited by, admittedly, a man who is paying that mine worker's starvation wages. Because you are American, you contribute to the very same type of oppression and exploitation of which you accuse us men.

Ah.. herein lies the true answer to your Issue: Yer mum. You should explore that further. Oh wait..you are, aren't you. You have found yerself a little store full of women who appear to be on par with Mom and you are busy pestering the heck outta them. Transparent, though quite entertaining.

Yes, you are undoubedly sexist and mysogynistic and living in such a wierd fantasy world. You seem to have this ideal image of this perfect Ozzie and Harriet world and it's such a farce! Women were FORCED by the millions out of jobs and work that was sustaining their families after WW11. That whole 50's oh so perfect world where wifey stayed home and hubby went out and brough home the bacon was such a breeding ground for untold spousal and child abuse. I lived it, I saw it everywhere and it was horrifying. My mother was a beaten down shell of a woman who had once been a vibrant and beautiful human. I've seen first hand what that kind of dynamic does to most women and what damage it does to their children. Most of the women I grew up around were like that too. Yes, I am mad as can be over all the destruction that has been wrought by the MAN. You think that everything would be just ducky if all women were subjugated and secondary so you all could go off and finish the job of global destruction. Women are complicit too and that's why I stand up and speak out. I encourage more women to do the same. It's our world too and we have to do everything we can to bring back some semblance of balance. As for being good lovers, that's debatable. For the few moments of pleasure, the unreal demands and expectations of most men are just not worth the effort. Let's not forget all the emotional and sexual games most men play. Most of you want a housekeeper, cook, nanny and submissive sex slave while placing little or no value on any of those very important jobs or the very worthy person doing them. Men destroy much more than they build. As for needing a man for that, I am quite capable of wielding a hammer and nails and know how to fix quite a few household and vehicular problems. So, what's so special about that? I could build my own shelter and if push came to shove, I could feed and clothe myself too with very primitive resources. Men CREATE the wars with their greed and silly possessiveness and then try to convice us to give up our daughters and sons as sacrifice to their stupid fighting and global games, all in the name of greed and power. Diplomacy can and does work and women are much better at it than men who seem to think being a bully and being aggressive, no matter the cost, are what make them attractive. To me, that's very unnattractive. And no, I am not looking for a wimpy male. Just someone who sees and respects me as a fully enfranchised human who has as much right to be here as he does with the same freedom to choose as most of you men seem to feel you have. I throw stats around because I do the research. I read! I gather information from many sources and only speak about that of which I have some knowledge. As for my business that I built from scratch and am enormously proud of, I work with young people in my community and have been for a long time. That's why my neighbors love me. I work with their kids and help them get a sense of what it's like to earn money and be responsible for a job. Most of the families I know have pretty good kids and ALL of their mothers work, some 2 and 3 jobs so that argument is ridiculous. Sure, there are problems. They are magnified because of the ceaseless bombardment of information we are now subject to. Information and sensory overload overstimulates kids and have alot to do with how we all behave in this great electronic age. That's womens' fault how? The materialistic striving has never been my goal. To be self-sufficient, self-sustaining and to be able to give back are the goals I have always striven to attain. What should I do, HPD? Depend on a man? LOL...that's a joke. You all have your place in this world. It's unfortunate that you think you own the world and everything and everyone in it too. I, for one, will always stand against that kind of tyranny. Peace, Dreamer

HDD: You seem to be a very angry woman. You blame men for just about every social ill. To some degree, you're right. We men are far from perfect. However, keep in mind three important reasons why you need men: 1. Men build stuff. That would include the house you currently reside in, the house from which you blaspheme males. 2. Men sacrifice their lives in war. America is the least crappiest place on earth, but it would be pretty equally crappy if it weren't for the men who sacrificed their lives for freedom and liberty. 3. Men make good lovers. This point is exempt, of course, if you're a lesbian. :) Please watch your numbers in your posts. You have the tendency to throw around numbers with no support whatsoever. You have become a victim of the stat attack. People throw around stats today like they're the end-all, be-all fact. I never said women shouldn't be leaders. Read my post carefully my dear. I proclaimed my mother to be a leader. But I do think that women should lead households, not businesses. Why in the heck does that make me a misogynist? LOL. It's sad: Women like you (and there are many like you today in America) feel that it's an insult for a man like me (and there aren't many men like me) to think that women should devote their lives to raising their kids instead of appeasing their ego. Any reson why kids are so messed up today? Just a co-incidence I'm sure that in the past 40 years or so, the family unit has suffered, while women are (slowly, I admit) climbing the corporate slave ladders. Go manage your company, HDD. Accumulate your bigger house, your LCD television. Your neighbors will love you, I'm sure.

HPD, Where did this overbearing SEXIST attitude come from?! Women shouldn't be leaders? Unbelieveable!!! You have no liking, respect or regard for women, period, as far as I can tell. Men have done such a fine job of leading, haven't they? Just look around. The world is in shambles, global warming threatens us all, women's rights in the US are being eroded at every turn, 60 million Americans have no health care, gun laws are out of control, our military is stretched too thin already and THE MAN wants to start yet ANOTHER war, Chinese women abort female fetuses by the millions becuase the MALE is so much more desired, millions of innocents are being slaughtered in the Sudan for the almighty MALE dominated oil dollar, a few select MEN are making obscene amounts of money riding on the backs of hard working people and driving most of the rest of us into povery and on and on and on. Great Job Men!!! You're really taking care of business, aren't you?! Makes you proud to be the big, strong MALE leader HPD?! BARF! Would you have the "little woman" greet you at the door with a martini in hand and a hot meal on the stove? Maybe knock her around if she doesn't do as you say, you big, domineering leader?! Humiliate her in public with nasty, cutting remarks to make her more submissive and pliable?! Keep her afraid to keep her in line?! Pretty sick!! Obviously you are a control freak who believes women are now and always have been secondary. What BS!! If women are masculinized and I say IF, they are most likely overcompensating for thousands of years of opression by the MAN and male dominated societies. There is a balance and we all have male and female characteristics. This world has been overbalanced on the Male side for far too long. Women are fighting back and that's a good thing. We, as women, have to stop buying in to the myth of male protection and support. It's total garbage! It's a form of brainwashing to keep us docile, submissive and confused. We need that Female energy very badly in this testosterone driven and war torn world. Peace, Dreamer

Helena: Thanks for the compliment. You're not too bad lookin' yourself ;) I do acknowledge the masculation of females in the workplace; I'm the first to admit that I generally refuse to listen to women whom I feel overcompensate their authority at the workplace and act like menhaters. Lord knows the academia is infested with such women. But doesn't this lend some credence to the "unnaturalness" of women and authority? I mean, if a woman has to act like a perceived beeatch at the workplace in order to get people to respect her, isn't that a sign that perhaps they should be doing something else? The leaders I most admire rarely have to puff their chest and build a stone wall around them in order to motivate people. Women are leaders, but, call me what you will, I'm not very accepting of women leaders because I believe men should be leaders. I cannot stand to see how many men rely on women these days for advice, etc. Part of being a man means being a leader, and when I invite a beautiful woman to walk the beach with me at night, I make sure I lead the way and provide a blanket to keep her warm. My point: Women should be at home taking care of the family. I have infinite respect for the comparatively few American women who shamelessly aspire to be a housewife, which requires a lot of hard work and commitment. I do respect the authority of motherhood because my mother raised me, and she sacrificed a lot, including a bigger house and an extra car. My mother, who I regard a household leader, was more concerned with instilling in me and my siblings morals and class rather than accumulating a big house and dung heap of meaningless material items.
