A handful of the posters in this thread fit into one or more of these categories.
Yes. It's glaringly obvious. Most of them trend conservative too. Interesting.

Any thread that's remotely about women in general brings them out of the woodwork, it's like clockwork.

My post had everything to do with your reply to my origional comment, and nothing to do with the origional post.

The dubious face emoji really rubbed me the wrong way, as i made it appear you think men have an easy run through life, most do not.

I have followed in my fathers footsteps. I am married to a wonderful women, we have two children under 5. We both hold multiple university degess, and both work full time in management positions in our respective careers, however my wife is the higher income earner. Which as far as i am concerned is brilliant, the two years i had as a stay at home dad for our daughter, are ones that I will treasure for life.

It’s a serious issue and no coincidence that men are the violent ones when you look at the hateful, bitter crap some of them spew.

I know it must be very hard for people like you to believe, however once you get past the sterotypes pushed by mass media, you will find this is far closer to reality most of the male population live with.

Daniel, it sounds like you're saying "not ALL MEN."

JerseyGirl, it sounds like you're saying "I wasn't saying ALL MEN."

Correct me if I'm wrong.

You are like an encyclopedia of man shaming. The *** is up, more and more men just ignore man shaming language female manipulators deploy. You'll have to adjust.
Charge of Rationalization (Code Purple) – The Sour Grapes Charge

Discussion: The target is accused of explaining away his own failures and/or dissatisfaction by blaming women for his problems. Example:

“You are just bitter because you can’t get laid.”
Response: In this case, it must be asked if it really matters how one arrives at the truth. In other words, one may submit to the accuser, “What if the grapes really are sour?” At any rate, the Code Purple shaming tactic is an example of what is called “circumstantial ad hominem.”

As a gay man. I can certainly understand why many straight men would want not get married.

Many of the men who I have worked with over the years have very high percentages of paychecks garnished for child support and rightfully so. They should do everything to garnish men who owe child support, but I sometimes wonder why so many men get involved in marrying in many times just a co-dependent who just wants to put on a performance a few years and then start acting bizzare out of the blue which happens often according to men I have known.

I wonder how many of them have given up all their financial freedom over a unappealing, desperate woman with lots of emotional problems who is co-dependent.

They should certainly pay for their bad decisions, but it also seems like many of the women used the men and out of the blue just because every wish and dream was not accomplished by the man, the woman felt the need to initiate a divorce to make his life miserable.

Many men I have known over the years are so busy to provide for their family that they can't be their to take care of the family. Many women use this as a reason to initiate divorce.

There is a high percentage of women in their 20s and 30s these days that hate themselves, hate men, have no self-esteem and just looking to use men as an emotional crush.

Do a google search for:

"female manipulators"

(be sure to include the quotation marks--this exact phrase is important).

It will yield 358 results. A mere 14 pages of results.

Scroll through them.

It will tell you all you need to know.

Indeed. It's all the fault of the womenfolk. I summed it up for you in one sentence.

You're basically correct, yeah.

You ever think maybe you're hearing only one side of the story of how a marriage broke down?
