    Personal preference and circumstances I guess. I really don't find blue eyed blonds very attractive on average. Much prefer Asian, Amerasian (Eurasian) or athletic/slim women with dark brown hair. Unfortunately, the number of women who are both physically and mentally attractive and compatible to me are very, very rare. An really nice, feminine, moral woman about 6' tall and an IQ over 150, highly developed logical center, B-Cup (AA, A or C still acceptable) might be ideal, but, yeah, where in the world do they really exist.

    I'm not going to sit here and seriously deconstruct this because it's never worth the effort, but I would just like to point out that this so-called misandry is actually something patriarchy put in place. Little women can't take care of themselves, you know. And men aren't real men when they express their emotions. Both concepts of patriarchy.

    So if you'd like to dismantle that, you should be playing nice with feminism, not against it.
    I agree with much of the equal rights movement, but not so much with feminism. I am completely on board with equal rights, but it has to be applied equally. If men are being told to give up their traditional role then women should also be moving in that direction as well. You simply cant pick and choose, which seems to be happening in our society, and men simply are silent on it. Any men who do speak up are belittled not only by the females, but their male enablers. Males that think they need to defend the female. Which is funny because these same females who sick their male friends on men that do speak up will argue with you until you are blue in the face that they don't need a man to protect her, while at the same time, sicking all her male friends on you when the argument does not go her way.

    I don't see women lobbying for the right to sign up for the draft.

    I don't see women lobbying for the right to work in coal mines

    I don't see women lobbying for the right to be 50% of the soldiers dieing on the front lines

    Equal rights!! Which also means equal responsibility. If you live in this country and enjoy all the perks that comes with being an american citizen, you should at least share the expectation to go off and fight for it. We don't see this though, women do not see it as a duty to fight in war. You will never see women lining up outside a recruiters office to sign up for infantry duty in the Army.

    You also won't see women lining up to build our countries infrastructure (roads, bridges, ect ect).

    You dont see women lining up to provide essencial services such as car mechanics, or machine operators, ship yard builders / welders.

    These are all male dominated jobs that women have left for men to do. I have never seen a picket line outside of a shipyard protesting that women are not allowed to be ship welders...

    But you see plenty of women protesting that they are discriminated against as Doctors, Lawyers, Corporate leaders... All the cush high paying jobs....

    If men simply went on strike one day because they were fed up with they way they are being treated....Who would...

    Fix the highways
    Fix the electrical when a storm hits
    Put out fires
    Fight wars
    Fix your car / truck
    Mine for materials that are used to build your computer, TV, Cell phone....
    Police the streets

    In all these fields.. men are overwhelmingly dominant. These fields are paramount to our survival and success as a country. They are not just services, they are a necessity. And like I mentioned above, men have and continually are paying the price and making the sacrifices required to deserve to live and enjoy the society we have built. Where are you women? Women are failing to represent themselves in my mind, as really wanting equality.

    Lets say for example.. if all these jobs were only employed by black people, and they made up 90% of the workplace deaths and sat at the bottom of the income scale, there would be MASSIVE protests. Men are silent slaves in a society that does not appreciate them. And if they start complaining about it, they are a bunch of wusses that have small penises.

    feminism doesnt mean the rejection of physical and psychological differences between women and men .

    if you are physically stronger ,you dont violate any feminist rule by protecting your family.......

    equality exists only in the legal arena

    in fact we complement each other . ..........

    Re: What would you expect a woman to do?

    What is so tragic is that variations of the OP senario do happen - and more often and in more ways than anyone can accept does happen and some day could happen to them.

    A family, each begging for each other, for themselves, for their children - desperate terror and fear against worsening horrific and torturous violence and tormenting - with nothing any of them can do or say to stop it - and they each coming to realize it only a matter of how much more each suffers before finally killed. Fathers who have had to watch their wife and children raped, set on fire, murdered, mothers having to watch this, children having to watch it.

    There are men who enjoy such things as their highest pleasure. Not just causing horror and pain to others, but also to enjoy forcing loved ones to watch it happen. Just as there are men who get a rush out of having another man's wife in an affair more than having an identical single woman as a thing against the husband and the joys of messing up their marriage - on the furthest end there also are men that will get great pleasure out of raping, torturing and killing a man's wife and children in front of him - for the added pleasure of that man suffering from it. Sometimes, only the man survives somehow and then he lives with that the rest of his life.

    To see and hear such things even just one time will change a person forever. I will not, cannot, watch movies or TV with slice-and-dice plots and scenes - because I know while that is just fiction, that something very akin to that same thing actually is happening somewhere while I'm watching that movie or show. And it eats my brain and sickens me. Because there is NOTHING I or anyone can do to stop it. Children. Men. Women. Begging it to stop, for someone, for God, anyone or anything to stop and undo this - and there is nothing and no one to do so.

    No one can really grasp that reality - not really - but it is a reality that does happen - and there is nothing that fully exempts you and yours from that potential either.

    Well, apparently if she was like you, she'd politely stand aside and let him do what he wishes to her sobbing children.


    Any women I'd associate with, let alone marry, I'd expect to show a little more character and backbone. A woman who won't fight for her kids is as sorry a sack of **** as a man who won't fight for his family.

    Exactly. Like you I learned, the hard way, that this **** really happens and happens more often than most people want to believe.

    That's why I made up my mind a long time ago... nobody is tying me up or taking my kids off with them. They can have my wallet, my car keys, I don't care... but the moment they try to leave with the kids or start tying people up, someone is going to die. If it is me I'll try to take them with me.

    Re: What would you expect a woman to do?

    I would expect her to do the same thing I would do, use our legally owned gun to kill the threatening rapist/murderer without hesitation.

    I agree completely! But society feels that men should bear this burden, not women.
