I fin it funny that whenever women face a systematic problem then society needs to bend over backwards to accomodate them and it's everyone's responsibility to do their part (read: especially men).

Whenever men face systematic problems, well it's their own damn fault, they can unfuck themselves on their own.

Gotta love that hypocrisy.

Men have agency. Women don’t.

This is the key aspect of traditional gender roles that feminism completely fails to challenge.

[–]BCRE8TVE 7 points8 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

Aaah but see, feminism does challenge that! Women do have agency!

But only when it's convenient for them. When it's inconvenient, then they don't have agency and men have to step up and fix the problem for them.

They're quantum victims, strong and empowered at the same time as weak and oppressed, depending on what suits them.

Exactly and they never take responsibility for how they feel. They put it on men and make it men's problems or use men as an excuse for behavior they like but want to be able to play victim when you call them out.

Something that always baffled me was the compensation hypocrisy. The bar is so low when it comes to saying men are compensating.

  • A man drives a car he likes, he's compensating.
  • A man needs to move two boxes and he can go to lunch. He moves both at once to get to lunch faster - he's compensating trying to look big and strong.

A woman has on so much makeup she looks like she is a different person / wearing a mask that took a really long time to do, a pair of yoga pants one size too small to really compress everything along with a back center inseam designed to make the cheeks protrude out, a bra that pushes her boobs up into a U, etc. If we suggest there's a 1% chance she may be compensating we're sexist and couldn't be further from wrong.

Then if you press it and get close to a real answer it turns into, "But but society makes women feel like they need to be a certain way!" So you ask, "Don't you feel society makes men feel they need to be a certain way? And it's, "Nope, men are just pathetic little dick turds."

And women do things because they feel inadequate and try to blame it on men. Women wear makeup because they like makeup. If you make an observation about makeup, women shout, "Women wear makeup for them! not you!"

But in reality, certain women feel inadequate in their default state so they pile on the makeup and then instead of taking responsibility for their own feelings and self view - they blame men - "Well! men expect me to wear all this makeup!!!!!!"

I also love how women complain about how they can't wear the same dress two days in a row and men can wear whatever they like, but it's the women who judge other women for wearing the same dress twice, men literally couldn't give less of a fuck, and yet somehow we're still to blame.

Gotta love the victim game and complete lack of accountability.

"men are homeless" ummm, just buy a house

When you speak from a position privilege it's impossible to put yourself in the shoes of the least privileged.

Light a candle: still lonely, but there’s light

Journal: writing about being lonely

Read a book: at least you’re entertained while being lonely

Go to the park: now you’re lonely in nature

Be an active friend: if you already had friends to be active with, you wouldn’t be lonely to begin with

Join a meet up group: no one could possibly be lonely after having invited themselves to a group of random strangers

Go to open mic: be lonely while watching people embarrass themselves on stage/ be lonely while embarrassing yourself on stage

Call your family: who needs good friends and/or intimate partners when you have family! To be fair, this may be a valid option in Alabama.

Get a pet: I mean, you can love your dog and all, but they don’t make great conversationalists, and you also probably shouldn’t f*** them.

Do something: stop browsing Twitter; they give bad advice. There, you did something.

All those ridiculous answers with no regard for logic got 26.k likes. That’s 26.k ridiculous people with no regard for logic. Even scarier

This applies to her too:

Are you an idiot? Don't be an idiot!

[–]Seafly42 19 points20 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I don’t even know what to say to this shit…

[–]ExpertRacer 10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Followed the steps, just plunged me into an existential crisis and thanks to that bloody candle I can see how lonely I am

[–]BloomingBrains 5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

You know, I never thought about doing cool hobbies. I've just been sitting around doing nothing my whole life like an idiot. Now that I've read a book, I don't want a girlfriend anymore! Thanks random misandrist! /s

If a man goes to any of those places alone he'll be labelled a predator.

The instructions are really not clear, but it works!

So first I decided to join a book-club, because I can join reading a book with being in a club and making friend. Neat.

The senior of our book-club is a bit weird, but he has very good recommendations, like this book with neat ideas to make picnics. Like that candlelit picnic where we all sing around a circle.

Anyway, I invited my newfound friends to a picnic in the park, during an full moon, because it's cool. We bought a lot of candles, put them in a circle, and started our songs.

At that time, a black cat came, and he was super friendly and we decided to adopt him. But strangely, he decided to sit in the center of us all, and then the weirdest shit happened. The cat died, and then a hole in the ground opened, spitting red flames dozen of feet ine the air.

Anyway, now I have a girlfriend. She is a bit homely, but I kinda like her red skin and long pointy tail. Less of a fan of the horns though. But the sex is damned good!

“Light a candle” ok now I’m sitting in candlelight and lonely

[–]LocalhostGhost 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Men being lonely is a much different type of lonely.

Being a man means, you can NEVER share anything. You make an observation, can't share it or you're sexist. You feel a certain way, can't share it or you're weak.

A really hard thing about a man is - you can never ever share what you're thinking. There is no forum. So you have to become your own barometer. SO you're in your head all of the time asking if you're being reasonable, over reacting, etc. You can't use the outside world as a sounding board. And over time you start to question yourself.

That is why men are so lonely - they have to live in their head and only have themselves as a barometer. If they say something out loud - they get gaslit.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
