Feminist Confesses: "I'm All For Feminism, But It's Making It Hard to Date"

You don't say. You don't say.

This was published by Bolde. I can't find it on the site; maybe they've deleted it. There is a Jennifer Lee that writes there, so that checks out.

Or maybe it's a spoof meant to look like it was published on Bolde. I dunno.

Let's assume it's real, provisionally.

Watch as very obvious dimes drop one by one.

I consider myself a feminist, but I can't lie--I'm starting to notice its effects on my dating life. This doesn't change my belief in equality, I just hope that men and women can eventually learn to date in harmony because it's pretty messy right now.

1. I'M HYPER AWARE OF EVERY SEXIST THING A GUY DOES NOW.

It doesn't take much for me to overanalyze a guy's intentions nowadays. I used to see a guy opening a door for me as nice and polite, but lately, gestures like this have been making me angry. I know the guys offering these acts of chivalry have no intention to make me feel small or lesser than, but now that my eyes have been opened to feminist theory, it's all I'm able to think about.

Please save me from my cult.

2. GUYS ARE STARTED TO THINK WE DON'T NEED THEM ANYMORE.

Even though the feminist movement is pretty much the best thing to happen to this world since sliced bread, it's taking its toll in the dating scene. The thing is, I'm starting to get a bit of a stand-offish vibe from guys, like they're afraid to make a move, and I think it's because they think that we don't need them anymore....

You don't say. I wonder where men would get the idea that women who say "a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" would not need men anymore.


3. ONE LITTLE ANTI-FEMINIST COMMENT CAN COMPLETELY TURN ME OFF.

When I'm out with a guy and he says one thing that's even REMOTELY offensive towards women, I find it really hard to recover. I instantly write guys off if they aren't "woke" to the current social mindset towards gender politics and can't let it go. Let's just say I've gone on A LOT of first dates that never go anywhere.

Cults train cultists to be alienated from normal non-cult society, so that they have no refuge, except the cult.

It's what keeps them coming back.


4. IT'S LIKE GUYS ARE WALKING ON EGGSHELLS AROUND US.

Guys are feeling the heat and we can all tell. They're afraid to compliment us or relate to us in the way they were always taught to and trust me, this is a good thing. However, women still like to be pursued (at least I do) and it's unfortunate that by finally standing up for our rights and demanding respect, we're totally scaring men away. It's so messed up and a total shame.

It's almost as if she's realized she's been brainwashed.

5. I'VE BEEN BRAINWASHED TO ASSUME THE WORST IN MEN.

Oh, there you go.


All it takes is one quick scroll down my newsfeed and I have enough feminist rants to last me several winters. I think I've almost trained my brain to assume ALL men are here to try to put me down and dominate me when that's far from the truth. I've made it kind of an automatic reflex at this point, though.

It's almost as if feminists have trained themselves to be hostile, paranoid man-haters.

Almost.

I mean...

...

8. IT'S MADE US MORE SEPARATE FROM EACH OTHER THAN EVER BEFORE.

Men and women ALREADY have so much trouble trying to understand each other, but feminism has turned our society into a bit of a battle of the sexes. I'm not on their side or anything, I'm just pointing out that we're currently in a sort of "us against them" mentality and it's gonna take a while until it all smooths out.

A "sort of us versus them mentality."

Just sort of!

...

10. I SWEAR GUYS ARE APPROACHING ME LESS.

Is it just me or are guys doing a lot more looking around than actually approaching? Times are a little weird right now and I guess guys are afraid that the way they approach women might offend us or give us the wrong impression.

Nah, you're fine. Keep on doing what you're doing.

This is so perfect that I'm afraid it might be a troll but YOLO, it's still all true.

Yes, a belief entirely different from every other part of your system.

Chances are you don't believe in equality when it comes to dating. Just date any guy, they're all equal.

Equality is not how the human works day-to-day.

27 So, let's summarize this one:
"I'm a feminist who has been made or and more radical. I have a hair-trigger and find everything to be offensive against women. I am now outwardly showing people - though not deliberately - that I am a fragile, reactionary, mentally weak person who will treat everything as a threat. Men are starting to avoid me, which is weird and unsettling because I still like the idea of men even though they are increasingly uninterested in the reality of me. This is a bizarre situation and I lament it, but also will remain a feminist because I know that's the right thing to be."

Enjoy your increasing solitude as you age, toots. Eat well so your cats can feast upon your face postmortem for quite some time before they, too, expire in your apartment-cum-tomb.

It's funny, I was talking to my mom about my dating life not too long ago and she said "why don't you just go up to a nice girl in the grocery store and start talking to her?" and I was like "wow, times have changed."

Girls expect to you only hit on them on dating apps (where youre supposed to aggressively hit on them and use very crude opening lines that no one would ever use in person), but if you even try to talk to them in public, they roll their eyes because "why can't I even go out to the bar with my friends without some creepy incel looking at me as a sex object!" or whatever it is they say to each other.

That went away though, and by the time I was opening doors for ladies, they were either smiling grateful for, more often, took it for granted and sailed past like a princess for whom it was the least I owed her.

Its dumb for that brittle, insane reaction to come back. Men are already learning they're better off just not bothering with women at all except as a place to stick their weenie after meeting up on a phone app.

Somehow this is viewed as progress for women.

58 Also, if you truly believed in "equality", you probably wouldn't think that males are of such a fated character that they are being more prejudicial than you are.

"Equality" is something that exists in mathematics. Because it is pure abstraction and only constrained detail, if any. And faith.

Natural selection implies the opposite of "equality", or there would be no "best advantaged" to survive and be selected. Primate societies operate in hierarchies.

"Equality" is a synthetic overlay imposed on society.

Many moons ago, long before Dolley, I was in a Target browsing the movies. I saw a girl with an amusing shirt in the books, so I just approached her and said that I liked her shirt.

She smiled awkwardly, thanked me, and bolted right out of there.

Maybe she had a boyfriend, I dunno, but the sudden move away from me was still weird.

77 When I'm out with a guy and he says one thing that's even REMOTELY offensive towards women, I find it really hard to recover. I instantly write guys off if they aren't "woke" to the current social mindset towards gender politics and can't let it go. Let's just say I've gone on A LOT of first dates that never go anywhere.

When I did community theater, I was discussing stunt casting with a woman over a couple of drinks. She mentioned a national revival of 1776 that was all-female, and I said that it was ridiculous, a stupid stunt that only called attention to the utterly asinine "woke" viewpoint of the actors and producers and sacrificed the power of the storyline for a cheap bit of PC idiocy designed only to "shock the straights."

Her answer was, "So you don't like strong women?"

"I love strong women,"
I replied. "It's stupid ones I don't like."

The call for the check came soon afterwards.

88 This Jennifer Lee chick sounds like so much fun. Anyone have her number? But what she writes is only half right: what men don't need any more are FEMINISTS. Sex is so easy to get. The "feminist" movement was the best thing to ever happen to MEN. Yes, men. In less than a generation, the feminists turned most women into what the generation earlier would have called sluts. No longer do men have to work for sex. We don't have to do anything. I don't even bother taking women out to dinner any more. Just meet a girl, text for a week or so, then invite her over. Done. So thank you, "feminists" for this!

So here's the thing: If you're under, say, 40, any woman you meet is going to be woke. It's part of the HERd mentality.

But sometimes it's perfunctory wokeness. Pure tribal signaling that "I am cool and smart and I know things!" Here's how to figure it out.

Wait for the first dumbfuck leftist truism that drops from her brainpan and falls out of her mouth due to whatever Pavlovian stimulus triggers it. Maybe provide the stimulus yourself. Then, just gently but dismissively brush it aside as what it is: dumb, wrong, and not worth addressing.

The real woke bitch will get angry and end it right there. The performative ones will get embarrassed, and maybe pursue your relationship further, or not.

But if you get to the second date after that, she doesn't really care about any of it, and will eventually abandon all that corny college folderol in favor of your spicy chorizo.

This one really pisses me off because of the contrast.

The greater culture to sexless men: Buck up, loser. Make yourself more attractive if you want to mate or get laid. If you can't, then it sucks to be you. Survival of the fittest, bitch! Enjoy your X-Box and cede the field to the better specimens.

The greater culture to sexless trannies: This is really tragic. Transsexuals are being unfairly excluded from sex, companionship and mating. We need to break down the hateful barriers that result in transsexuals not receiving the affection that is their human right because of other people's bigoted hate.

It makes sense from their world view. They want to get rid of "toxic masculinity" (which has a very ... fluid... definition), but they still want guys to chase them and flirt with them, but only some guys at some places and times, and I imagine the who and when is also very fluid, and then they get offended when guys have to "walk on eggshells" around them.

102 The "expensive to be a woman" thing isn't all wrong, but its largely self-selective. Women rightly complain that their girl shampoo costs more than the boys stuff, and that men's stuff tends to be multipurpose while they have to get 8 products but....

Nobody is holding a gun to their head making them do this. And most of those products are for women in their 40s. If you're 18 and buying 10 moisturizing products, you're just retarded. If you're paying more for girl shampoo with the flowers on the bottle than boy shampoo then you're a SUCKER.

Thank the Lord that was in 1992 and not 2021. Nowadays, I'd have been jettisoned from school before I ever got started. Back then that was a survivable comment.

Oh, and you should have seen the room light up in Criminal Law when I answered the Prof's question by equating Nazi concentration camps with Planned Murderhood. That was an incandescently spectacular day!

I think it's even worse then that. You have guys who are saying "it really sucks that girls aren't interested in me" and instead of society saying "well, here's some things you can work on to try to be more attractive to girls" or "you need to put yourself out there" or "maybe take up some hobbies where you can meet girls, or at least guys who have girlfriends with single friends" we make fun of them.

When it would be objectively better for everyone if we tried to help people, instead of laughing at their issues.

In no other context is that the leftist approved response.

And THEN, to add insult to injury, girls now use that as a catch all insult for any guy that they want to make fun of. Like "haha, you came up to me in a bar, that must mean you're a virgin who can't get laid, like a LOSER." Which uh... is not very logical, but also, I'm sure, makes guys who can't get girls feel even worse about themselves if they see their "normal" friends getting publicly shot down as "incels" by girls.

155 I think it's even worse then that. You have guys who are saying "it really sucks that girls aren't interested in me" and instead of society saying "well, here's some things you can work on to try to be more attractive to girls" or "you need to put yourself out there" or "maybe take up some hobbies where you can meet girls, or at least guys who have girlfriends with single friends" we make fun of them.

When it would be objectively better for everyone if we tried to help people, instead of laughing at their issues.


Ironically, the ones who are saying this are the alt-right, who tell young men that it's a good thing to work out, to develop your skills, to be proud of who you are and of being a man, and that it's a good thing to want marriage and a family.

In no other context is that the leftist approved response.

And THEN, to add insult to injury, girls now use that as a catch all insult for any guy that they want to make fun of. Like "haha, you came up to me in a bar, that must mean you're a virgin who can't get laid, like a LOSER." Which uh... is not very logical, but also, I'm sure, makes guys who can't get girls feel even worse about themselves if they see their "normal" friends getting publicly shot down as "incels" by girls.

Describing my ex perfect. Masters degree, works (almost) full time at a non profit, doesn't make a lot of money. Her friends are pretty much all in the same boat.

Which ... I get. Like their moms all had similar lives / career paths. But then again, their moms also got married young and kids, so working part time at a low paying job to get out of the house once the kids were in school full time kind of made sense. But not for a 33 year old who, lets face it, will probably end up never getting married and having kids unless they do a 180 on their entire personality.

A lot of feminists fail to grasp that while they can pull a lot of this crap when they're young and hot, and guys will sorta put up with it, but as they approach their sell-by date, guys will put up with less and less.

Bay Area feminists learned this the hard way. In the 70s - when they were in their 20s - they busted a lot of chops ("sit, stay, roll over, play dead"), and reveled in their ability to do so.

Fast forward a few decades, and according to buddies who were still in the Bay Area, the same feminists lamented that no one bothered with them anymore.

Karma is a bitch.

It might come in a branded bottle or whatever, but it's just some watery counterfeit crap that won't clean your hair.

Lady YD is always bargain-shopping. And her black hair-care products for her and the kids are actually not very expensive at all, but she buys them at a special black-people store.

She was getting my shampoo from the dollar-store, and I eventually asked her to stop and get mine at the regular store. It's really the worst. I think it actually somehow makes your hair *dirtier.*

Ironically it seems most of the ones who fit that profile are actually western converts and often do the suicide stuff. Viewed as crazy or weird by the native terrorists, who are usually better educated, more affluent, married, and a bit older.

What we view as an abnormal activity might just be a skirmisher/raider lifestyle of their lower aristocracy.

Most of them don't blow themselves up after all.

I was like "well, that really narrows your dating pool."

Anyways, I'd much prefer to date a girl who doesn't have huge career aspirations if we're planning on having a family. It would be hard to raise a family with someone who works 80 hours a week.

That's one of my favorite ones. And all women say some variation of it.

Look, ladies... Boys and girls are different in some ways. One way is this: we don't running around talking in weird codes. If I say "I want X," then I want X. If I don't want you know it, I won't say it.

It's like the old "what are you thinking about," "nothing," "no... REALLY, what are you thinking about," spiral of death. I hate that one. I think women are really always thinking about stuff, and don't understand that men are often in a semi-conscious waking state, maybe with some really low-level "thoughts" happening like "I wonder if we have any steak left," or "I need to buy beer later," or "I think my toe is broken."

How I've seen it put - Men want someone who's sexy and fun, Women want status. Men's potential mates are every good looking woman of child bearing age, as long as she acts right. But women have the need to find a mate with higher status than they have, they can't help it. They could *never* marry the cute Cabana Boy, no matter how hot he was. (and if they did they'd despise him and themselves) Wheras men couldn't care less about any "skills" outside of the bedroom.

So, unless they are very lucky, high status women tend to generally be unhappy and alone. And that's what pays the shrinks bills.

262 Most feminists weren't really datable.

Hot blondes with big jugs aren't really worried about toxic masculinity because they are the object of desire for masculine men. (You could insert "Latino", "brunette", "redheads", etc in place off 'blondes' if you like).

So being objectified by traditional masculinity benefits them. All they have to do is maintain hotness and the rest just falls in place. Why would they charge that?

But if you are homely and awkward, well, all of a sudden men are bad because they don't want to shower you with trappings and adoration. That might bang you after a few beers. Or you just kinda get desperate cucks. But no real dudes, so then dudes must be bad.

That's why the narrative is not only that dudes are bad, but that hot women are bad too. Ever seen a teen movie where the "mean girl" is a fat, ugly dyke looking bitch? Nope. "Mean girl" is always a hot, wealthy blonde.

Yeah, that's not wrong. You have to offer something they will want, you have to present value.

The problem is women have been trained by endless romantic TV shows, movies, and books that all they have to do is exist and be hot. Men will conquer entire nations just to have them.

What's more "having something to offer" has to be value to that person. Being smart, handsome, learned, creative, whatever doesn't offer enough for a woman. She gains nothing except pleasant company from you with that. She needs practical value.

But that isn't status. There is very little correlation, in my own observation between what degree(s)/jobs a woman have and her ability to talk about something deep and meaningful. This is probably true of men as well.

293 Obvious comment: Feminism has screwed women up really, really badly. And made life hard for men.

The book Freakanomics said that during WWII, factories got cheap labor from women. When WWII ended, they still wanted cheap labor. Hence the career woman was born, so that corps could pay them less and have more profits.

301 @248, Yudhishthira's Dice, I read a marriage blog written by a man for women, and he actually had a post about that. He wrote a whole post saying that, yes, for real, men really do think about NOTHING. They're not trying to blow you off. It's quiet and they like it.

It was kind of eye opening. Women are ALWAYS thinking of something. It's just an endlessly running drone, usually in a million different directions simultaneously. I honestly can't imagine what it would be like to just think about ... nothing.

302 ut women have the need to find a mate with higher status than they have,
they can't help it. They could *never* marry the cute Cabana Boy, no
matter how hot he was. (and if they did they'd despise him and
themselves) Wheras men couldn't care less about any "skills" outside of
the bedroom.

We've had this discussion recently at this site. That's a generalization and not true of all of us, and is changing in any case. I wanted a smart woman, because they're more interesting, and you have a better shot at smart kids, which I value. Fortunately for me, she has all the other good attributes you could want.

304 Men and women definitely are looking for specific minimum things and requirements in each other, they just tend to be different for each.


I used to have this long checklist of what I wanted in a woman, led by "smart".

Yeah that all went out the window, not out of desperation but experience. The most important thing is CHRISTIAN: does she love God more than anything else, especially herself and even me?

Then its TRUE: will you be trustworthy and loyal?

You check both of those off and you can look like Marty Feldman and be dumb as hell and you're still on the table for me.

The offended thing really fascinates me. If I MEANT to offend you, then I don't give a damn that I did. In fact, I'm glad, so you won't be getting an "apology" from me.

If I apologize, it means I didn't mean to offend you, so what are you working your panties up for. These days though, the apology is like chum in the water, and the perpetually "offended" are sharks. If they were actually offended, they'd accept the apology and move on dot org. But they don't. So they're not.

In my entire life, not once has a woman ever wanted to set me up with her friends. On the rare occasion that I've asked a female acquaintance to do so, she's declined. A perfect 0.000 average.

Flash forward to November of last year, when I was buying my house. My realtor wants to set me up with her friends (she's married). The only variable I can come up with? She's seen my books and none of the others had.

Modern women have been brainwashed to believe they deserve the top 5% of men. They are entitled to it. They will not settle. They cannot think logically or rationally and math is definitely not their strong suit. They believe men want what men have to offer women because they have been programmed and brainwashed into believing that they are men because there is zero difference between men and women to them. So when their body count reaches triple digits by age 25-28, they can't understand why they can't land a quality man while simultaneously holding contempt and hatred for not only men but the women who get married early and have kids and are stay at home moms. They consider men to be weak and those women to be weak as well.

"Oh my god, you wouldn't believe this shit my boss is making me do. I'm running this major project and I have to work with these IT guys in India, and my boss Jared is such a dick and has all of these huge expectations for me and ..." blah blah blah. Like...

You're confusing society's aggregate judgment of characteristics with the imputed possession of characteristics. Yes, you would be gambling on a woman who, un-bullied, has a low societal rank. She likely has that for a reason.

Actually being an airhead is a particular quality, whether or not the status goes along with that. No, that's definitely not anything characterized mainly as that would interest me in a woman. But society's judgment is only one of the indicators for this--whether *I* find "airhead" quality in her is the main factor, not how the rest of society judges her. (These days that could mean that if society takes an aspiring "stay-at-home-mom" as an "airhead", that you would have to agree with Society's judgment). But it would be the *quality* I would seek, not the assessed status.

368 I disagree about men not wanting status. Maybe it is not the primary thing - looks are - but it is a factor. Would you marry some airhead 10? Not me. At some point you stop fucking and need to have a conversation with your wife, lol.

Status isn't intelligence, though. Status is marrying an airhead because they have a Harvard degree. Most men don't care about credentials like that, whereas women tend to place a high value on them. (Note that the rise of credentialism and the rise of women running HR coincide).

But I'll wager that some of the women behind the "movement" got exactly what they wanted, in spades.


There's a blog post out there on that Intarwebz thingy entitled "(name escapes me)'s Sister. The author was the sister of one of the early psycho feministas and she said not only that her sis was a psycho, her fondest desire was to destroy the nuclear family. IIRC, her sister was in and out of mental institutions most of her adult life.

One relative lived with her boyfriend for several years before marriage. My husband and I had already shared our guidance on premarital relationships the first time she lived with a guy, so she had already heard from us on the topic. She's been married about five years now. I recently found out some details about their personal lives that indicate that the husband no longer has marital privileges. I'm pretty sure he didn't sign up for that. I wonder how long he will tolerate it and who will get to keep the house.

You're still young, so I'll give you a bit of advice.

Are you going on dates? Don't start with "I never talk about my job/career," as a way to conduct yourself.

Start with "I never talk." Ask questions. Open ended (How, What, When, not Why). Not only will you get the picture (is this one salvageable or not), but she'll think you are a good listener*.

It's also the same people on the Right justifiably holding men accountable for going out, sleeping around, and playing a role in turning young women into sluts at an early age and ruining them.
Really the only way to "high valued women" today is if you live in the same area, your parents and families are in the same circle and are friends, and it's the WASPy middle to upper class circle. Social and family pressure plays a role in many positive checks and balances.

I have told my sons to only date conservative women because liberal women are awful. They are damaged, emotional wrecks, demanding, judge mental and mean.

Millennial women are obnoxious and want it both ways. They want a rich man who is successful but they want to be equal and treated as superior simply because they have a vagina. And they want all that sweet cash.

Men should be very careful if they marry any woman who labels herself a feminist. These women believe and act like men are dumb and inferior.

423 The "expensive to be a woman" thing isn't all wrong, but its largely self-selective. Women rightly complain that their girl shampoo costs more than the boys stuff, and that men's stuff tends to be multipurpose while they have to get 8 products but....

Nobody is holding a gun to their head making them do this. And most of those products are for women in their 40s. If you're 18 and buying 10 moisturizing products, you're just retarded. If you're paying more for girl shampoo with the flowers on the bottle than boy shampoo then you're a SUCKER.

426 421 I remember a lot of the "old" feminist articles discussed the future world where men were few, work was a thing of the past, and women all lived in mansions with jacuzzi parties every night.

They didn't seem to indicate how the mansions and jacuzzis would be built and maintained, but I presume it was some sort of slavery.

I saw a really effective web comic where a guy meets a girl, he's kind of a punk looking guy. So over the panels he starts changing to please her and ends up a really nice looking, handsome gentleman with a nice job... who she leaves to be with a guy that looks like he used to.

Some women have a picture in their heads of the perfect guy who they try to mold their man into but he never quite measures up so they pick another project.

Sometimes I do want to talk about what I did at work that day, and even if I wanted to spend the first hour explaining basic principles of physics and/or chemistry that they should have learned in middle school before I can even get to the actual issue we were trying to solve, empirical evidence suggests that (understandably) approximately 0 people are interested in such a conversation.

A woman, never saw her before, stopped and started yelling at me, that I was betraying the feminist movement, undermining it by doing a domestic activity.

Bruh, you sound like a woman about fairness. I hold men accountable for allowing history to repeat itself. I obviously hold women accountable, but at what point do men reflect back and say maybe it's a terrible idea to be fucking young women and ruining them. I get it, women control access to sex and men control access to relationships and marriage.
Teaching young men and men in general to partake in a hedonistic society destroys younger generations of men and women.
If you are older and she is older and the kids are out of the house, then have fun. But to ignore the responsibility, accountability, and consequences to preserve (conserve) a functional thriving society for younger generations to prosper is selfish and destructive and makes one no better than feminists.

I am constantly explaining and destroying the views of the other side to my kids. I spend a lot of time on it. I wish I didnt have to. I have ended up making my kids political, and I hate that. But the alternative is that they are sucked in by evil.

500 Fact... There are more biological females born than males... By age 25, all the "low hanging fruit" is usually taken... After that age, and removing those that do not identify as straight males or have a vice or character flaw from the pool of available males the number of choices for your average female has shrunken dramatically...

It is Mother Nature culling the herd...

502 I'm dating this very attractive woman and she basically loves me because she's surrounded by leftist males who treat her like they think a feminist would want to be treated (she's a lefty but she likes me so she'll be pinochet if i ask her to marry me, you know how women are) and I basically treat her like a woman should be treated and she loves it.

Most of these chicks are angry because they are surrounded by men who do not have any Game.

Teaching Game to 12 year old males would basically solve most of this worlds problems.

504 Unless Miss Lee wakes up from being woke, I see many cats in her spinsterhood. And I say this even if she is a good-looking babe, which I doubt.

505 "Men and women ALREADY have so much trouble trying to understand each other, but feminism has turned our society into a bit of a battle of the sexes. I'm not on their side or anything, I'm just pointing out that we're currently in a sort of 'us against them' mentality and it's gonna take a while until it all smooths out."

So this "woke" feminist openly declares:

1. Men and women have trouble understanding each other. This implies men and women are two distinct groups.
2. Feminism has instigated a battle of the sexes. This again implies two sides, with men on one side and women on the other.
3. By stating that it feels like "us against them," the writer is putting herself in the woman camp, a shockingly binary view of sex from a "woke" feminist.

Conclusion: feminists know that the woke crap about 87 different genders is screwing with their place in the victimhood hierarchy, and there are really just two sexes (and a few incredibly rare genetic aberrations) in the world. The rest is just sexual orientation and issues with self___.

506 Let me guess she has blue hair and horrible glasses and can't figure out why men who know what those signals mean are staying away. LOL

508 I'm guessing the 300 pounds and haircut like Rugged Ronnie Garvin are also a factor in this, but then again whiney little soy boys are attracted to that shit.

I'm convinced feminism is really a plot to get all these attractive girls to start getting face tattoos or those giant ones across thier stomach (i like girls with some tattoos or piercings, but having your boobs highlighted by a goat's head isn't tops on my list.....or anywhere on it) Just like liberals want to make everyone equal in poverty, feminist just want to make all females equal in unattractiveness.

509 Today's sad women wonder why men seem so weak, distant and uninspired .. but their grandma's generation could have easily explained this to them:

"No woman made him care enough"

510 Im not sure why this would be a parody. This looks like the facebook musings of my wife's college friends. She was bombarded by the whole feminist thing for a while but she is smart and saw through it pretty fast.

Of all the damaging mental hangups, probably the worst is the idea that men are scared or intimidated and that's why they have no time for harridans.

Nobody is scared of you lady. Just like no one is scared of a pile of dogs#!t. Certainly avoid it though.

511 Ladies I'm just being myself, I am not pursuing any of you, I am trying to get through my day with as little fuss and muss or problems as I can.
I wish to have my life uncluttered and uncomplicated.
I am married have been for a long time, and frankly the last thing I need in my life which grows shorter by the minute is another woman in my life.
I would take another Dog, I would like another Horse, maybe a cat but I no more women.
You can be a feminist as much and for as long as you like.
I could care less.

512 "IT'S MADE US MORE SEPARATE FROM EACH OTHER THAN EVER BEFORE."

- that was the point. A lot of these ideas were developed by lesbian separatists to try to separate hetero women from men.
