In 1972 women decided they wanted equality.

They marched in the streets.

They burned their bras (not sure why).

The truth is equality with men is about the last thing women want.

This makes me “not worth marrying”?
You and your wife decided together what works best for your family. And you are equal partners. I didn’t say the division of who works vs who cares for kids had to be equal. Just that you’re equals within your marriage. You’re both contributing equally for the benefit of your family just in different ways.

I apologize if I offended you.
Hatred? Where do you see hatred and bitterness? I accept things as they are, a female has one body, one life she can do whatever with those but not at my and my life
expense (not just money). I will not jump hoops to earn her approval. I am what I am. She is what she is. If there is some overlap it is ok. I think I have 100% feminist approach to life. I am appalled for being called names just because I advanced myself far enough to embrace my femininity.

Another thing to consider is that married people SHARE goods and services. They share a home, appliances, home services, etc. Sharing is not good for economic growth. Single people need to buy their own things, thus, the demand for housing and goods and services are maximized by people living as individuals wanting and buying their own individual things.....as opposed to sharing.



Capitalism feeds off the disintegration of the family and "collective" institutions that share. Feminism was just a pawn in the game of capitalistic greed. It was a proxy to increase the number of workers and consumers in order to expand faster. Capitalism is the most productive economic system ever invented.....but it comes with a great offset on society and culture in the long run.
Maybe leftist capitalist but not conservative capitalist.

That's all subjective and not very objective. If the male is attractive then his douche personality is perceived as good. If the male is not highly attractive, then his personality is perceived as bad and just "creepy".

There are studies and even books written about how societies that give women total equality and rights (especially sexual freedom) leads to collapse of civilization.

This is especially due to women's proclivities towards "hypergamy" and the polygamy that usually results from this.

This leads to violent and unstable societies, like we see in Africa for instance.

Feminists voluntarily jumped in the corporate bed to have mutually beneficial relationships with moneyed elites. Corporatists saw great money making potential in an isolated gender neutral drone owing it all to selling his/her wage slaving self on labor market. Feminists saw female liberation there.

Ok.

This thread is a dumpster fire because of incels but... sure. We’ll go with more anti-woman sexist crap. That’s what any thread mentioning the word “woman” turns into anyway.
