A headline on Drudge Report today read, “BLLBOARD FURY: PROTEST PLANNED“, and featured the picture below…
Now when you see this, what is your first reaction? Most of us probably think that the sponsor is some socially-conservative Protestant do-gooder, who thinks they can shame men into returning us to some Victorian era of chivalry and male headship, despite impossibly feminized modern headwinds. That’s likely an accurate description of those responsible, although the “organization that bought the space doesn’t want to be identified”, the article said (how very interesting). They are probably on the same level as those who posted billboards years ago with sayings like, “Just keep swearing…God is going to make you sit in traffic even longer.”
For a moment, the idea of a protest over the sign was refreshing, as this should offend every man who feels that he shouldn’t have to be a walking ATM to have worth — not that “real men” have the time to go out and protest things like this. Ah, but of course, it’s not men protesting…yup, it’s women who are up in arms, and not on men’s behalf, but because they feel that it’s sexist against women.
“We are NOT protesting that the sign is capable of existing, or the people who put it up, or the ad agency, or the right to put it up. We are protesting patriarchy and sexism, and that this antiquated way of thinking about women exists at all.”
There you have it. It is sexist and patriarchal to expect gratitude from women. Of course these women aren’t against men providing, as taxpayers and bureaucrats, providing all kinds of help and incentives for women — as well as handicaps for men — so that they can “compete” in the real world and someday close that (fake) gender wage gap. But the thought of a man and a woman living in a traditional “nuclear family” situation, and the wife having gratitude for her oppression? Totally unacceptable.
This is another example of what you are dealing with in modern women. This is how impossible, irrational and inclement they are, and why going your own way is the safest and most practical life plan.
You’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t: they’ll get angry if you provide for them, and get angry if you want them to take care of themselves; they’ll get angry if you “ogle” them, and get angry if you give the the cold shoulder; they’ll get angry if you don’t chase them, and get angry if you don’t take the hint and buzz off; they’ll get angry if you make more than they do, and get angry if you make less than they do; they’ll get angry if you don’t treat them like a “lady”, and get angry if you “put them on a pedestal”; they’ll get angry at men for dominating the workplace, and get angry at men who don’t have a job; they’ll get angry for suggesting that men are better at anything, and get angry if you don’t grab something off the top shelf for them; they’ll get angry if you favor traditional gender roles, and get angry if you don’t pay for the date; they’ll get angry if you believe that there are differences between genders instead of “gender” being a social construct, and they’ll get mad if you dare hit a woman.
In modernized women, you are dealing with immature people who are always angry, confrontational and don’t know what they want. Don’t ever give someone like that a vote on the course of your life. There may have been a time when marriage worked, but that is a bygone era…and don’t let some anonymous billboard social trolls convince you otherwise. Let modern women tell you themselves, in their actions and reactions.
