This is not entirely true. There are plenty of great men who are not married or involved in monogamous relationships. There are even great men who died as virgins such as, Nikola Tesla , Sir Isaac Newton, and J. Edgar Hoover. So this quote is inaccurate, and I find it to be women trying to take credit for the great things that men do AKA trying to bring men down. This sounds harsh, and to me it is the subtle push behind Feminism.
Not that their aren't great women behind great men. I just thought that titling this article this way would get more people to read it and pay attention.
Read this article in it's entirety before commenting or judging me, it is extensively thought out.
To me, some of Feminism can be bringing men down to the level that women are at in comparison to men to "be equal". It feels like making what it is to be masculine a bad thing. MEN AND WOMEN ARE DIFFERENT. Women are better at other things too. I am pushing for masculinity and femininity to both be appreciated and looked at as complimentary to one another.
Other comments like "The future is female" is frightening to me. What is going to happen to men, especially "great" men if "the future is female"? The phrase on it's own sounds like women are going to take men over.
Toxic masculinity is talked about a lot, and toxic femininity is not very often. Which are terms that are not concrete or easily definable, by the way. Just like MISOGYNY is talked about a lot and thrown around frivolously. And MISANDRY is a term that a lot of people are not even familiar with.
Here is Candice Owens who speaks on Feminism, in a male positive way.
Women do great things as well, they are the birth-givers who carry boys and girls inside of them to create people and humanity. I just don't find it valid that because they are with that great man, that they deserve the same level of credit that the great man gets. I imagine that the great man will give his wife or girlfriend credit for supporting him if she truly is supportive and a great partner.
BECAUSE, on the flip side, great men are also at risk of being taken down or taken advantage of by a woman. This is extremely evident in history and in society. Look at Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, Derrick Rose, and Patrick Kane. I would consider their athletic abilities and level of financial wealth to be "great". They have all been accused of things by women, and accused publicly, and more harshly, due to their "greatness" and level of celebrity. So, behind these "great" men, were women who accused them of certain things, or were rewarded financially for being married to them, then divorcing them.
Yes, there are men in these positions with great wives and marriages, but their is also high risk for these men. And I'm saying, that men should be careful when entering into a relationship.
Many men in entertainment, athletics, or in other positions of power and wealth are at risk of being taken advantage of by a woman. Generally, women find power and wealth to be attractive, among other things. Certain women go for these men, even (especially) when these men are married or have girlfriends. Women are more attracted to men who other women want.
This is in nature and in history. Straight women can have adverse reactions to single men, their thoughts may be, "Why is he single? Something must be wrong with him." Where as, if he has a wife or a girlfriend she may think, "If he can please that woman in bed and keep her around, I bet he could please me in bed." Not all women are like this, but I'm sure many women have had these thoughts. And there is nothing wrong with it, is just natural and makes sense.
Men at certain levels of status are tempted by many women, when they make themselves available to these men. There is a level of power and temptation that beautiful women possess. Men being visual creatures, we are attracted to beautiful women, and certain men give in to these levels of temptation. Then they get divorced from their wives, and end up paying them A LOT of money in alimony. With more money than is necessary, they pay based on what they are worth. Divorce and family law are whole other topics that I am not that knowledgable of. But it is well known that men can be cleaned the fuck out financially by their wives, and allowed little to no custody of their kids.
It is put brilliantly and hilariously by Bill Burr right here.
Men are also accused of something by women who are trying to get a payout. Like Derrick Rose and Patrick Kane, these two men who could walk in to any bar in Chicago and meet an attractive and willing woman to sleep with. Thinking about this logically, it is highly unlikely that either of these men had to force themselves onto women for sex. Their charges were dropped, because the claims were made out of extortion.
I'm not saying that all women want to take men down, and that men don't do irresponsible things with their genitalia. I'm just saying that women are not always the victims, and men are not always the cause of the damage.
It is in men's nature to want to have sex with a lot of beautiful women regardless of being married or in a relationship. With laws and social rules, it is frowned upon and punishable when a man cheats on his wife or girlfriend.
A lot of people don't like what it is to be a man. In my opinion, that is a part of the modern feminist movement. That men are constantly oppressing women, and misogyny and toxic masculinity are running rampant.
Masculine men being people who take bold risks and break through barriers is how our country was founded and built. With skyscrapers, trains, planes and automobiles for transportation etcetera. Creating the modern platform for people to complain about it and criticize it without being murdered, ostracized or imprisoned like in other countries.
There is a lot of manipulation in the world. Especially with dating, and in relationships. People are not honest with their intentions, and the consequences of duplicity are inevitable. Men and women both manipulate each other without noticing it as well. People want things from other people, and are not totally honest with their intentions, due to the possible consequences of being totally honest.
Don't get married to someone if you want to sleep with multiple people. Let people know that you are not interested in monogamy if that is the case.
I think there are both great men and great women in society. There are also bad men and bad women in society, who want to seek revenge on the opposite sex and take advantage of people. For their money, material objects, looks etcetera. Straight men want to be with lots of different partners, and women want a man who will stick by them and not mess around with other women.
WHY?!??! I have my own theory... Back in caveman times. Cavemen were roaming around and sleeping with pretty cave ladies. These pretty cave ladies got pregnant. Then these cavemen kept going around getting more cave ladies pregnant. Of course the cave lady wants this caveman to be there for her while she is pregnant, and when she gives birth to the cave baby. So they can raise this baby together, and make it a productive and effective human being. Men don't always want to do that, it feels good to get with lots of cave ladies, but there becomes a responsibility when getting someone pregnant, and raising a child with that person. This makes sense in a modern society with rules.
A lot of men get women pregnant, then they leave. Which leaves the mother alone to raise her kids by herself. Of course women are pissed off at men for doing this among other things, and want men to take responsibility and to be something other than their nature. Because this kind of male behavior happens, and creates more human beings not being raised by two parents.
My theory bleeds into casual sex and relationships too. It is the baseline for how heterosexual men and women are with each other. In general, men want a lot of different women, and want to have lots of sex, and in general, women want a stable partner who won't sleep around with other people. The opposite can also be true too, because women like sex just as much.
Women are just as horny as men, stop pretending like you are a prudish good girl when you just want some good dick. There is nothing wrong with that. The clitoris has double to three times the amount of nerve endings that the tip of a penis has. So this myth that men are hornier than women is not true.
In society, there is a double standard of players and sluts with men and women, and it's bull shit. People should not be shamed for having or wanting a lot of sex. Go have fun and get some good sex. Just don't lie or fuck anyone over to do it.
These are all my own thoughts, interpretations, and ideas about men and women based on my own research, experience, and opinions. I am open to discuss this with anyone.
I have issues with Feminism and Misandry, most people don't know what Misandry is... if you don't, then Google it. Misogyny is a word that is thrown around a lot and frivolously, and Misandry is not.
I think men are being made to feel wrong for being masculine. What is happening is against nature. It will not end well if all men are turned into submissive beta males.
Men and women both do great things, let's appreciate what we both can do. I say we all let each other have our fun, and stop getting so fucking offended.
To quote the great Jim Carrey, "Behind every great man, there is a woman rolling her eyes." Smh.
