Feminists are known for reveling in the “end of men” and declaring that women need a man like a fish needs a bicycle. Little do they know how wrong they are.
Radical feminists are only able to prance around with their churlish man-hating behavior because of the wealthy and safe society we live in, and the foundation of this society was built by and maintained by men.
Cheap energy (in the form of oil, coal, natural gas, nuclear, hydro and even inefficient wind and solar) fuels the machines that make modern life so easy compared with centuries past. Without all this, the modern feminist lifestyle would simply not be possible.
But instead of gratitude to the inventors and laborers who made this possible, rabid feminists snarl with raging fangs, sinking their teeth into the hands and hearts of men collectively, accusing them of domineering behavior, abusive attitudes and all the ills the world has ever known. Men are called creeps and good men are derisively sneared at as entitled Nice Guys. Men collectively are responsible for all the ills of the world in feminists’ ungrateful eyes but get no credit for the great accomplishments in science, medicine, engineering and society that have created the very conditions that feminists (and women in general) enjoy so much today. And just ask yourselves, would feminists rather live today where they control their lives in so many ways or 5000 years ago where subsistence living and a hard, short live was what you could aspire to? To ask the question is to answer it.
Talk about biting the hand that feeds them.
Talk about ingratitude.
Talk about shitting on the shoulders of giants and thinking they’re 12 feet tall.
With that said, let’s focus on some recent discussion on this topic and give credit to some women who do get it. I like to do this for 2 reasons: 1) They are intelligent, fair and articulate in the message they deliver; and 2) I hope that a new group of alpha mares can rise up to replace the current hateful, feminist-supremacy alpha mares that guide the female herd and the beta-male followers (of course, the apex alpha males are the ultimate controllers of the herd and will use feminists and beta males for their purposes).
In response to such short-sightedness, Camille Paglia takes on the end of men crowd,
A peevish, grudging rancor against men has been one of the most unpalatable and unjust features of second- and third-wave feminism. Men’s faults, failings and foibles have been seized on and magnified into gruesome bills of indictment. Ideologue professors at our leading universities indoctrinate impressionable undergraduates with carelessly fact-free theories alleging that gender is an arbitrary, oppressive fiction with no basis in biology.
History must be seen clearly and fairly: obstructive traditions arose not from men’s hatred or enslavement of women but from the natural division of labor that had developed over thousands of years during the agrarian period and that once immensely benefited and protected women, permitting them to remain at the hearth to care for helpless infants and children. Over the past century, it was labor-saving appliances, invented by men and spread by capitalism, that liberated women from daily drudgery.
What is troubling in too many books and articles by feminist journalists in the U.S. is, despite their putative leftism, an implicit privileging of bourgeois values and culture. The particular focused, clerical and managerial skills of the upper-middle-class elite are presented as the highest desideratum, the ultimate evolutionary point of humanity. Yes, there has been a gradual transition from an industrial to a service-sector economy in which women, who generally prefer a safe, clean, quiet work environment thrive.
But the triumphalism among some — like Hanna Rosin in her book, The End of Men, about women’s gains — seems startlingly premature. For instance, Rosin says of the sagging fortunes of today’s working-class couples that they and we had “reached the end of a hundred thousand years of human history and the beginning of a new era, and there was no going back.” This sweeping appeal to history somehow overlooks history’s far darker lessons about the cyclic rise and fall of civilizations, which as they become more complex and interconnected also become more vulnerable to collapse. The earth is littered with the ruins of empires that believed they were eternal.
After the next inevitable apocalypse, men will be desperately needed again! Oh, sure, there will be the odd gun-toting Amazonian survivalist gal, who can rustle game out of the bush and feed her flock, but most women and children will be expecting men to scrounge for food and water and to defend the home turf. Indeed, men are absolutely indispensable right now, invisible as it is to most feminists, who seem blind to the infrastructure that makes their own work lives possible. It is overwhelmingly men who do the dirty, dangerous work of ….
Every day along the Delaware River in Philadelphia, one can watch the passage of vast oil tankers and towering cargo ships arriving from all over the world. These stately colossi are loaded, steered and off-loaded by men. The modern economy, with its vast production and distribution network, is a male epic, in which women have found a productive role — but women were not its author. Surely, modern women are strong enough now to give credit where credit is due!
The irony is that it’s because of the sweet life men created that these women even have time to ruminate over their place in the world — and demonize the very group to whom they should be indebted.
Venker again shows the ingratitude of the Hanna Rosins of the world and prophetically warns about the dangers of creating a nation of men who either check out or angrily rebel, or as I like to say, most men are like dogs, loyal and forgiving but kick them long enough and eventually they’ll bite back. Don’t poke the bear.
Hanna Rosin is helping to brainwash a nation into believing the tired notion that most men wanted to keep women in their place, as though America was once Iran. It is therefore justifiable, one supposes, for women to take over. It’s retribution.
But retribution for what? For providing women with the means to an easier life? For faithfully bringing home the bacon so mothers can take care of their babies without the pressure of employment? For building the roads and infrastructure that make our cushy lives possible? For tilling the fields and transporting the food to the grocery stores so women like Rosin can pick up their goodies and avoid slaving over a hot stove? Those damn men. Why did they ever have to exist?
In 2011 I wrote this statement: “It is a dangerous thing to create a society of frustrated young men. Feminists have no idea what a can of worms they’ve created — and what it’s about to do to our nation.”
So now I’ll say it again, with a twist. It is a dangerous thing to create a society of angry men. Feminists have no idea what a can of worms they’ve created — and what it’s about to do to our nation.
Men should be proud of being men and of the more prosperous world they have helped create. Women should be grateful. Of course, this isn’t to deny the great evil that some men have committed nor to minimize the role that women have played. Nor is it to say that women can’t do this or that. Nor is it ignoring that we were all given life by our mothers. Rather, it is to fight against the wicked notion that men have only caused oppression and are no longer needed. For a society to function optimally, men and women need each other and should treat each other with love, respect and fairness.
Men, feel proud of who you are.
Women, go tell a man today that you’re grateful for what most men have done throughout history.
