Are you blind? Men are continually the butt of jokes and its openly expressed throughout our society. Women treat men terribly in America. They use their sexual worth to manipulate men into getting what they want out of a relationship. The minute the man figures out what she is doing, she is on to the next man doing it to him. Or even worse, the man never figures this out and becomes a dog on a leash wagging his tail for every small tidbit treat his wife gives him. He becomes a broken man, totally subservient to her.Men in the US are not being disrespected by American women.
It's sad, and I see it everywhere. Many here may not be interested in nightlife or going to bars or clubs but it is rife there. I love to do people watching type activities and all you have to do is sit in a bar and watch the social dynamic that goes on. Women are extreamly manipulative and down right mean sometimes. Its really interesting to watch them play their little games with poor unsuspecting guys that aproach them. Weather it be for free drinks, or amusing entertainment, most men in these establishments are mere free entertainment to these women. Entertainment for them to brag to their girlfriends about.. About how many guys they told off, or how many guys hit on them.. Its all an exercise in ego inflation and they love the attention.
2nd to men?? Let me give you some statistics here and then tell me men are still 2nd to women in our society.American women are tired of being second to men at every turn.
Women, on many campuses, make up over 50% to as high as nearly 70% on some college campuses. Women earn most of the degree's in the US.
Men make up over 95% of workplace deaths.
Men commit suicide 3 times more often then women, and as much as 7 times more likely once they reach old age.
Women live longer by 3-5 years depending on what stats you look at
Women make up more than 70% of the consumer spending in the US (but somehow make less then men, interesting)
Women initiate divorce 70% of the time
And those are just a few statistics, there are many more that should sway anyone with a working brain that men are certainly not ahead of women.
That is because most women will not marry a man that makes less money than she does. Men who are willing homemakers, or willing to sacrifice a meaningful career to take care of children so a woman can continue her career simply do not attract women. Women demand equality, but still carry many traditional values themselves that they need to adjust. They need to be willing to lower their standards in the area of marrying a man who wants to be successful in the workplace. Women want their men to be well educated and high earners in the workplace, but at the same time complain that men do not take their fare share of the housework. Well, you can't have both! And if you marry a man that wants to have a successful career, don't be surprised when he WANTS A SUCCESSFUL CAREER! The most successful people are going to be the ones willing to work the longer hours and put more effort into advancing. When you have a family, you simply do not have the same amount of time to invest as someone who is single and has a lot less responsibilities at home.Family law is there for the children and not for the dads. Usually it is the mother anyway who is taking care of the children even if both work.
Their rightful place? I thought the whole point was to give women the CHOICE to enter the workplace if they wanted. Nothing about being career minded makes one better then another. In fact, I believe, that telling women they have to go out and work simply made Men equal to Women and not the other way around. Men, for centuries, have had no choice to work. Working jobs they don't like, putting their lives on the line to support their family. Now women are expected to contribute financially as well as maintain the family. Before, the roles were evenly spread between a couple. While women did not have a say in what role they would play in a relationship, neither did men. Both men and women had roles and societal expectations that came with those roles. We like to pretend that only men had a choice, but they never had a choice. And they still don't have a choice today. A mans choice if he wishes to be successful with women is to work....work....or work. That has never changed... A womans choices have expanded. She has the choice to work or stay at home if she wishes. A choice men dont have. When men get married they have a choice to work...work...work... when children come the mans choices change to... work... work overtime...work more than one job. Where as a woman has a choice, a man does not. Not unless he wishes his wife to divorce him at least. The real fight should be to expand a man's choices. There needs to be a push to change societies view that men who do not work are deadbeats or undateable. They may be great fathers!!! If women have the choice, men should as well!Men have been ruling the roost for centuries and now only women are standing up for themselves and being counted and seen as equals to men. Not by some men but in general women have finally taken their rightful place in society.
And men need to stop being enslaved into the workplace for women. Need to stop being slain on the battlefield to protect women. Men have been enslaved by women for centuries. Both sexes have been enslaved to each other for centuries. In all acutality, both statements are pure ignorance. There was always a really good reason men and women had traditional roles. The reason those roles existed have only, in recent time, been deemed unecessary due to technology. 100 years ago, the workplace was not safe for women which is why there has always been traditional gender roles until recently. Men have not enslaved women. To say so is just ignorance. Both men and women traded their own freedoms to each other in order to survive life and pass that life on to the next generation. This whole idea that men have enslaved women is pure rubbish.And the men who are being told that they are worthless and stupid often are actually stupid and worthless. Women will no longer be reduced to being barefoot and pregnant slaves for their men.
