I was looking for something else over @ Dr. Helen's place on PJ Media when I decided to read her response to Rush Limbaugh's on air review of her book, Men on Strike. I heard him that day, and what he had to say was dead on target. After reading her piece, I decided to peruse the comments as well, and I found THIS gem by Gawain's Ghost; in it, he discusses how he treats women these days, and why. It's good reading, so I thought I would share it with my readers...
Well, Dr. Helen, as you point out in your interview, the great irony
here is that this issue harms women more than men. And there can be no
resolution until women realize that fact.
That begs and obvious question: will women ever realize that? Given women's solipsistic, gynocentric point of view (i.e. everything is about them), are they capable of cause and effect thinking? I'm not so sure, given women's penchant for choosing cads repeatedly, then complaining about the dearth of good men afterwards. Women will ride the carousel for years, yet never seem to figure out that they may be doing something-gasp-wrong...
I suppose a resolution
could be accelerated if more and more men treated women the way I do. I
mean, I'm not a cad or a pick up artist. I treat women with respect.
I'm polite and courteous, fun to be with. It's just that I understand
the law and know that I am held accountable under the law.
Yes, yes, yes, a THOUSAND times yes! Men should understand the law and our inferior legal standing therein. One of the best investments in time a man can make is to take a day off, and spend it in his local family court; he'll see how gynocentric the legal system is, how biased against men it is.
solution to the problem is really very simple. Marriage is out of the
question. I do not allow her access to my property. I certainly do not
allow her access to my money. We both have jobs, houses and cars. We
both have money. So if she wants to get together, we'll agree on a
place or an event, and meet each other there. If she wants to get
intimate, we'll agree to share a hotel. After the date, or in the
morning, we go our separate ways.
Keep 'em at arm's length, absolutely! If you do this, then she cannot burn you.
Is there any romance in a
relationship like that? No, not really. Is there any future in a
relationship like that? No, not really. Would I prefer be in a
relationship that involved romance and a future? Yes, I would. But
unfortunately this culture, this marriage contract, and this legal
system prevents it. So I came up with the only solution I could think
of, separate lives.
THIS is what feminism led to. THIS is what women wanted, via their support and/or their silence, i.e. their lack of opposition to feminist policies while they were being implemented.
She can take care of herself. Ever since I was 12, I've had girls tell me, "I don't need for you to take care of me." Okay.
Those of us over a certain age can remember Helen Reddy's battle cry: "I am woman, hear me roar in a voice too loud to ignore!" We've also heard about how women are strong, independent, and how they don't need no stinkin' man, how sisters are doin' it for themselves, etc.
I'm on a date, say we're having dinner at some restaurant, and she
starts making snide comments or belittling remarks, which happens quite
often, I just stand up, throw $20 on the table and leave. She can drive
Hear, hear! Don't put up with her feminist bullshit...
If she comes to my house and knocks on the door, I
step outside and close the door behind me. What can I do for you? "I
wanted to see where you live." You don't need to see where I live. No
way am I going to allow her into my house, because I know for a fact
that the minute she leaves all she has to do is say "He tried to rape
me!" And I will be in a world of trouble.
This is true; all she has to do is point the finger in YOUR direction, and you are toast. Remember the Duke lacrosse team? Remember the boys at Hofstra?
I once had this friend
who was dating this girl, and he broke up with her. She called the
police and said he was a major cocaine dealer. Saturday morning, we
were kicking back on his couch, watching TV, and this tactical SWAT team
burst in, held us at gunpoint, and ripped his house apart. They found
nothing of course, because it was all a lie. But it did scare the hell
out of us. This is what I'm talking about. All she has to do is make
an accusation, and law enforcement comes storming in.
I only meet
with women in public places. I only have sex in hotel rooms. Since
she pays for half, there can be no question as to why she was there.
Absolutely-have a paper trail so you can prove your case. Unfortunately, when it comes to men accused of anything these days, it's no longer innocent until proven guilty; it's guilty until proven INNOCENT! That's a subtle, yet important distinction...
dated women, and after a few weeks, she asks, "Is this all there is?
Dinners and hotels sex?" She wants to move into my house or she wants
to get married. When I tell her that's not going to happen, she gets
I'm nor going to argue with her. I try to explain to her
that the terms and conditions of the marriage contract are unacceptable,
and that the law and the court system make cohabitation impossible.
She gets more upset and stomps off. Oh, well, on to the next girl.
Never argue with a woman; you'll NEVER get anywhere. Also, remind her that THIS is the society women wanted; they're the majority of voters, so we, as men, are powerless to stop anything...
more men treated women like that, it wouldn't take long before women
began to understand that this is their problem. When she realizes that
all she has to look forward to is work and going home alone, then she
will start considering changes to the contract and the law.
Don't bet on it. Women, given their solipsistic nature, will never draw a connection between X and Y; linear, logical, causal thinking is not women's strong suit. If it were, then women wouldn't ride the carousel with cads for decades of their lives, then wonder why they cannot find a good man when their looks start to fade...
doubt there will be an organized men's rights movement. Men just don't
do that. I know that women don't have any interest in changing the way
things are, because they currently have all the power and advantages.
Women have all the benefits and advantages, absolutely. Moreover, they FOUGHT for these benefits and advantages. Why would anyone with a brain think that they'd even think about giving up all their gains?!
my proposal is for men to make a concerted effort to live separate
lives. Oh, yeah, women will complain about it. They want romance.
They want love. They want a future. When it becomes apparent that
they're not going to get any of that, then things will change.
Again, I wouldn't bet on that, because women don't DO cause and effect thinking; it goes against their very nature. That said, what have he got to lose? After all, we're (i.e. men) a minority of the voters, so we cannot and will not change anything on our own. Ergo, we might as well live our lives for ourselves, while letting women put their money where their mouths are. After all, sisters can do it for themselves; after all, they don't NEED no stinkin' man... ;)
Have a good day, and I'll be back at you soon...
