Men on Strike

The reality of the so-called war on women is that it is really a war on men. The constant drumbeat of leftist claims that men are abusing women is having an impact on men.

The battle of the sexes is alive and well. According to Pew Research Center, the share of women ages eighteen to thirty-four that say having a successful marriage is one of the most important things in their lives rose nine percentage points since 1997 – from 28 percent to 37 percent. For men, the opposite occurred. The share voicing this opinion dropped, from 35 percent to 29 percent.

Believe it or not, modern women want to get married. Trouble is, men don’t.

Women are the majority in the workforce. Women get most of the college degrees. Federal programs mean “Julia” doesn’t really need a man; at least not for economic support. There are no more Ward Cleavers or even Cliff Huxtables in popular culture. In American popular culture, father sure as hell doesn’t know best. In fact, if he is present at all it is as a clown. Women dominate the culture and men are optional. Men are getting the message.

A society that abuses men, degrades them, ridicules them and calls them redundant is likely to see some percentage of men go on strike. That is exactly what is happening. It won’t be good for women.

    This exactly what I continue to say to male friends of mine. Make sure you absoutely WANT AND LOVE TO GET MARRIED. If you split up it will put you twenty years behind. Her lawyers and the judge will hammer you just for your gender. Men are taking their time finding a mate for a team effort. They are looking for someone educated and expect them to be working as well for the greater good of the family. The left has been working hard for twenty years to destroy the family and the church. It might be longer.

    this is why people have so much free time on their hands to be “activists” and make life miserable for those of us who honor family, integrity, morals, truth, hard work, honesty…

    feminists spout how running a swiffer over the floor is abject slavery. This is why they are so miserable, they have been fed a pile of dog crap and told it was filet mignon. They want everyone to eat dog crap with them.
    I hope they enjoy the coming collapse and beating their clothing against a rock to get it clean, if they survive that is.

    Because nobody cares about men..

  4. women are inticed by the thought of power. Eve had the same problem. Sound Familiar?

    The woman who wrote this article doesn’t understand mens’ thinking.

    Family court and divorce laws have changed smart men’s decision making. There is little upside to marriage, and extreme financial downside. Unless the woman is a sure bet, smart men will stay single and have serial girlfriends.

    Another single friend and I talked about this last night. A guy he knows has a wife who has spent $225k covertly. The guy is busy working to make up for his first divorce, his wife is alone, and she spends even more. 2nd divorce in progress.

    He remarked “You never trade up.” Meaning after college, the pool of quality women declines to zero. Good stable women get married in their early 20s and are removed from the market until they are widowed. Leftover are unstable rejects.

    Your idea of marriage is sadly distorted & frankly – depressing.

    What a sad & cynical way to view something that can be so rewarding. I couldn’t imagine going through life with “serial girlfriends”.

    I had many girlfriends when I was young & single, but the idea of growing old alone, just me and my toys, no one to share it with but my likewise wifeless/childless friends?

    Seems like living in a perpetual state of post-adolescent, man-child fantasy.

    Why would someone not want to share the joys, triumphs, struggles, & hardships of life with a partner?

    As much as I enjoyed ‘experiencing’ as many women as possible in my younger days, there is nothing like coming home to a wonderful, loving wife. They are a pain in the ass at times, but who isn’t? Friends are, too.

    You say that there is little upside & extreme downside to marriage? How so?

    The upside for me is sharing my life with someone I love, respect, and trust. Financially, my taxes are lower than they were when I was single. (This wouldn’t be the case if we were both high-earners but my wife hasn’t been required to work for most of the 11 years that we’ve been together.)

    Good stable women get married in their early 20s and are removed from the market until they are widowed. Leftover are unstable rejects.

    What an awful way to view the world and the women in it. What a sad life.

    Nota, that actually made my eyes sting. Nicely said.

    As to the men being on strike, I actually see it as less ‘being on strike’ and more, living in a perpetual state of post-adolescence. A large portion of our populace is in their parent’s home until they’re 30!

    These grown men would sooner live as parasites, engaging in childish pursuits than be saddled with responsibility.

    They are not becoming men, because our society has inculcated them to the idea that they don’t have to be.

    If I had a son, which I do not, I would tell him to get the nut snip with reversiblity, and never marry a woman.

    I know a fellow who did just that … the nut snip. And he was brought up on paternity charges by a former GF – and he blew that all away by proof of his sterility.

    In today’s Fam Ct enviroment, there is NO percentage of gain for a male in getting married.

    So my advice to any sons is, cut your tubes, and never get married.

    Which breaks my heart – because it cuts them off from the soul of women.

    All of which is a polarization brought on by the so called “family” courts.

    Which have nothing to do with family … except to destroy them.

  10. notamobster says:

    I’ll take my chances at utter ruin and the brutal failure of love for the possibility of a life with woman I love and our children.

    Some risks are worth taking.

    Jesus, I thought I was cynical.

    Funny how no one accuses women of being “trapped in pre-adulthood” when they are single, active and have toys. In the female case it is considered independent, self aware and strong.
