Conversations With The Bear


In the course of discussing my previous post, regular commenter Fuzzie said:

Blurkel, I have been quiet today digesting your post. Married men are in a pickle. It seems that they have been set up as chumps and the overwhelming majority of women are going to take advantage of the situation.

This got me to thinking about a theory I’ve had for a long time as to how this situation came about.

Historically from about the Renaissance period, men were generally self-employed farmers, craftsmen, or tradesmen. Most never ventured far from home, not even while working, as the residence was not far from the place of business. They were thus readily available for the unforeseen family problem which might arise. Such a condition was likely to only be interrupted by the outbreak of war. Then, the wives and children of such men were trained and expected to continue the operation of the family business until he returned, and to carry on in the event he did not.

The Industrial Revolution disrupted these traditions. No longer was a man the master of his own fate. He had indentured himself to the orders of another in trade for a wage. The hours he was expected to be on the job added up to more time than any other activity across the week, regularly more than sleeping. 80 hours “on the clock” wasn’t unheard of. In the event of an unforeseen necessity, he could be summoned to work on short notice no matter what else he’d already done.

This obligation had a price: family time. It fell to the wife to fill in when the husband was otherwise occupied. The threat “Wait until your father gets home” evolved for use when her authority wasn’t enough to control unruly children. It had to work well most of the time, for who wanted to face a very tired and angry sire?

But just because Dad was working for another, war still ended up taking him away.

The earliest examples I can locate of women working industrial jobs comes from the US Civil War. At least three separate disasters in weapons manufacture -at Allegheny PA, Brown’s Island outside Richmond VA, and The Washington Arsenal in the District of Columbia- report significant numbers of female casualties. Both sides didn’t have enough men for all of the arms manufacture necessary to conduct the war, and in fact women were preferred to do certain jobs: “Because women had much more slender fingers they were better able to pack the cartridges containing the gunpowder in their casings“.

War has repeatedly given women opportunities they wouldn’t have had otherwise. A largely female work force constructed armaments during American participation in both World Wars, and likely in other nations involved in those conflicts. This had to have affected the societal psychology. I see the WWI female workforce being energized to push for voting rights, which were delivered very shortly after the Armistice and became the law in 1920. I can’t point to a similar “reward” for the WWII workforce, but in both cases women were fired to make room for returning soldiers, and back home they went.

I have heard that there were often marital issues between the working wife and the returning soldier husband. She had gotten used to dealing with life and solving its problems without his assistance, and she wasn’t about to surrender that empowerment. Out he went.

Encouraged by such little victories, those who knuckled under to the return of “The Way Things Are Supposed To Be” eventually got tired of being submissive after tasting the dominant lifestyle, and the women’s movement emerged. One has to ask if something along the lines of the reward granted to the WWI workforce might have deterred this from happening.

But that wasn’t done. Men were still expected to devote more time and energy to the job than they had left to devote to everything else, and women had no limitation on their activities when he wasn’t there. Why do housework when there is a gardening club meeting – or a lingerie show – or a sex toy expo? And so on.

Stuck on the job, there wasn’t much men could do about any of this. And as the economy began to consider men obsolete and expendable, it only opened the door for women to assume yet another formerly male role as the bread winner. He ended up staying home doing her traditional roles, only to hear all too often that he wasn’t doing it right.

SNAP!

Those of us caught up in that condition post-marriage didn’t have any good options. Our lives were pretty much over whether we stayed or divorced. Our lives weren’t our own, and we found little satisfaction or reward for the sacrifice.

As Fuzzie later added: “While half of all marriages end in divorce, it seems the ones that hang in there are suffering too.” Whoop, there it is! “I do have profound and justified fear of losing myself by getting married and becoming a “yes.dear” husband.

Increasingly, men globally share that fear. In Japan, the millennials are known as “herbivores” because they appear not to have the normal “animalistic” instincts of their ancestors. In Germany, authorities have worried for years that their young aren’t interested in procreation, and thus don’t marry. As late as last month, a Pew Research study reportedly found that If trends continue, millennials will have the lowest marriage rates in modern history.

The official explanation has to do with economics, but that isn’t the only reason. I’ve reported many times that my adult sons are in no hurry to date much less marry. One is open about how he doesn’t see any women worthy of his efforts. Economics has nothing to do with that, does it?

I don’t know for sure how things are going to turn out, but things can’t remain as they are. The only way this game is going to end is for men to not play it anymore. The smart ones already know how to maintain their own residences, taking care of their own domestic needs once done by women. The rest need to learn.

The only remaining issue for men is sex. One has to be very selective about this. Married men end up learning how to do without since that “steady supply” promised as a marital privilege rarely materializes. Single men have to worry about the unplanned pregnancy and common law statutes. It’s no fun, but doing without eliminates the way most men succumb to female blandishments. If that isn’t acceptable, there are always pros who aren’t going to call you up crying that she’s late.

It boils down to this: how important is having a life to you? Get a woman in it, and she takes your name, then your future, then your money, then your house and any kids you have, and you get the leftovers. Sound like a great deal?

I didn’t think so.

    Marriage really is finished: it’s over

    Today, it is clear that marriage is neither lifelong, nor a covenant – for women. We must face it, marriage as it has been known for centuries is finished: it is over, drowned in a swirling sea of ‘equality’ and lack of honour – in women.

    Divorce: Get the judges out of it!
    Quote from 2004

    ‘On 11 November 2003 a wholly deserving father left my court in tears having been driven to abandon his battle for contact with his seven-year-old daughter… Those who are critical of our family justice system may well see this case as exemplifying everything that is wrong with the system… There is much wrong with our system and the time has come for us to recognise that fact and to face up to it honestly. If we do not we risk forfeiting public confidence.’

    The concluding argument offered by Vanessa Lloyd Platt in Spawny’s video link above raises an interesting counter-argument. Women expecting unlimited post-marital support -especially in the amounts demanded in the divorce case under discussion- have traded physical access to their bodies for cash. Without the benefit of clergy and a marriage license, most nations call this prostitution. But to even suggest this connection will raise the hackles of every woman on the planet, for they all claim that marriages are about love.

    Balderdash!

    I’ve been married a long time, and nothing ever got the excitement level raised in my wife like having unplanned money fall in my lap. This remains true even now. It’s the only thing that EVER gets her excited anymore. Where is the love in that?

    It’s in the love of Mammon, which women will utilize the Temptations of Eve to attain.

    Young men need to be told this by those who know this and can demonstrate visible examples to them. Increasingly, as I cite in the post, young men in Japan and Germany -and likely many other nations, but finding links isn’t easy with a topic most nations don’t want to encourage- have learned this and go their own way.

    Women will have to evolve an alternative. I found it interesting today that a side character in the Batman comics is now openly bisexual. ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/02/27/selina-kyle-catwoman-bisexual_n_6765590.html? ) Her protege, who is taking over her costumed persona, is openly gay. I’m all for this if it takes the pressure off of men to “man up and marry” as is so frrequenly demanded. Let them marry each other, their dog, or themselves if they must. It’s all the have earned.

    If you’re insisting on talking about lesbian marriage be careful to stay away from touchy things like ‘Lesbian bed death*’ (sex-less relationships) and domestic violence rates being highest in lesbian relationships, hetero in the middle and lowest with gay males. There’s the horrendous possibility of someone drawing the inference that as the number of females in the relationship grows, so does the rate of violence…

    * Schwartz and Philip Blumstein concluded that lesbian couples in committed relationships have less sex than any other type of couple (heterosexual married, heterosexual co-habitating or gay male) and that they generally experience less sexual intimacy the longer the relationship lasts. This was based on analysis of responses to the question “About how often during the last year have you and your partner had sex relations?”. The results signified less sexual activity than their counterparts. Emphasizing “had sex” in their sample, only about one-third of lesbians in relationships of 2 years or longer had sex once a week or more; 47% of lesbians in long-term relationships had sex once a month or less, and among heterosexual married couples, only 15% had sex once a week or less. They also reported that lesbians seemed to be more limited in the range of their sexual techniques than did other couples, and that lesbian couples are less sexual as couples and as individuals than anyone else.[4][5]

    The 50 Shades critique video is a powerful and well-considered examination of this “cultural phenomenon”. While I have not read the books or seen the flick, it rings true with some of my own issues as I outlined in my post about 50 Shades. But his having seen the flick, and maybe browsed the books, gives him more of an insight to what was intended, even if subconsciously.

    I recall lots of early female movie characters, and I never quite put my finger on what made many of them larger than life. The video critiquer nailed it with his observation that such women were written as men. This still goes on in Hollywood, and is a reflection of those who make the movies.

    It is thus with the complaint about how men are portrayed, especially but not exclusively Christian Grey. The books have a female author, the director was deliberately a female so as to not focus on the sex (or so I’ve read), and probably many other significant personnel in the process as well. From a marketing standpoint, this tends to make sense.

    Movies made for men nowadays are essentially video games. Superheroes, WWII, action flicks, combat, car racing, etc. Deep human characters aren’t needed. I suspect, though, that the numbers studios want to see of those into games aren’t showing up at these movies. This hardly makes them failures, just not the large successes desired. To Hollywood, too much IS never enough.

    For Hollywood types to continue to live their lavish lifestyles while looking down on the rabble which pays for their tired bilge, they need those big blockbusters to work. Hence the massive amount of hype pumped out since the announcement that the books were to be addapted for the screen. Every couple of days there would be yet another report beaten to death on the TV to ensure that it reached every possible woman and entice them into attending.

    And as we men have all experienced. little works better to drag women into the theaters than to make evil monsters or objects of ridicule out of men.

    It’s when I read things like the aforementioned article that I truly wonder if it is true that women have a lesser sex drive. I was taught in both high school and college that this wasn’t so (yeah, of course not…), but if the internet + what my coupled friends say is any indication, it’s fact.

    Which is just a weird thing, when you think about it. Women have a far easier capacity to experience multiple orgasms, and with birth control there’s no need to be frightened of accidental pregnancy. In the confines of a marriage, there’s also very little threat of STDs (unless a spouse is an unknowing carrier) and it *should* be a relationship where you’re most comfortable opening up about your desires…hence eliminating the potential tension of “shame” for having a libido some women still endure. So what exactly is the issue?

    One thing that drives me nuts about the manosphere is the idea of Woman Gives Sex, Man Gives Resources. Half my brain realizes this is the reality for many (the majority?) of men, but the other half that contains my own experiences struggles against this. It’s like saying the female of a relationship has sex as a type of resource that she exchanges for material goods…which really bugs me, because sex isn’t a Thing. It’s an Action that you share with someone you care for, and not simply because they enjoy it but because…dammnit…you enjoy it just as much! Sex *is* give and take, but not only in the sense of Female ➡ Male. More like Female 🔁 Male.

    Pretty sure that some of our female/female commenters share this outlook, so it’s not a female/male difference. I’d also find it hard to believe all of them have higher levels of testosterone to affect their libidos to any great extent. Honestly, something just doesn’t add up…Am I missing the forest for the trees here?

I have short fingers, so the ratio is high or low whichever way round it works. I’m my mother’s first kid, I won the battle of the bodies.

It’s like they stopped growing when I was 15 or something. As for finger sizes, both my index and ring finger come up slightly past the nailbed of my middle finger.

    Re the fingers:
    I remember doing the test way back in the day, on Tarn’s site I think it was. Something to do with finger lengths. Now didn’t some bloke measure the fingers of activist feminists at a convention? The test indicated they are more masculine and combative than feminine women. That was definitely on Tarn’s site. Before the days of Spawny Space, I think.

  86. Spawny Get says:

    Ratio of lengths of the two fingers is supposed to be related to exposure to sex hormones in the womb. You need to Google it. But basically index > ring implies high testosterone in womb. The opposite; ring > index is low T, feminine. If they’re much of a muchness, then I guess you didn’t get a high or low dose of T. Probably a spectrum of T and O exposure.

    Iirc also check the jawline of women and arm hair. Strong jaw and hairy are also high T related, though can’t remember if that’s in womb, or post partum.

    There are a lot of women out there on the same page as the author of that post for the Telegraph. They are abusing their relationships with full social approval. What feminism has sought to do has been accomplished. Women OWN sex.
    How this came to be is beyond me. I think my mother subscribed to this attitude. That’s how long this has been going on. That something that requires enthusiastic participation from both parties by mutual consent has reverted to being owned by one of the parties and fully controlled by that party is a conmfidence trick of the highest order.
    In my bitterness, I had thought that women got a taste for the power of denying men sex while single, why not continue while married? Who’s to know or care? He dare not complain.

    I don’t know if I have mentioned it but, I think one of the chief reesons for the popularity of grass eating in Japan is the perception that marriage there is sexless.

How many months have to go by without touch or intimacy before an affair starts looking like your only option other than constant frustration and longing? Grown men are starting to have body issues (not believing themselves sexy or desirable) just like women used to… Everything is completely screwed up.

    Tarn, if your ring finger is longer than your index finger at that ratio then the theory says you got bathed in testosterone in the womb…this really supports your male brain claim (I already had no doubts just from conversations we’ve had, I’m just saying).

I remember reading a similar article years ago and checked the fingers of 2 or 3 of the guys I knew–not measuring, but just comparing which was longer. My index finger was always the longer finger, and I just measured my ratio–1.03. My mum’s index finger was longer too. The 2 or 3 guys I measured had longer ring fingers.

Good luck with that, you sons of syphilis infested hyena carcasses…if the KKK was willing to defend a black gay soldier’s funeral from your presence, you have absolutely no chance getting around the sheer amount of Trekkies who will gladly encircle Mr. Nimoy’s coffin.

    Dear Gods, but I loathe people like this. They do have First Amendment rights here…but can’t say I disagree with the fact they are preemptively banned from entering the UK.

    The Westboro bunch is a horrible lot

    I am not a baptist, but if I were, I would be trying to dissociate myself from them

    Tarn,
    They may not be welcome on solely religious grounds. I think Leaonard Nimoy is Jewish.
    Here is one of my favorites.

    The picture at the top.

    Yes, he definitely was Jewish. The “split finger thing” was Jewish.

    I always liked Scotty. He made the ship go. That was awesome in my book. And he grew up (some of the time) in the Detroit area.

    From PMAFT,

    “On the contrary, I was stating a moral judgment: namely, that people we call nerds make a massive contribution to the progress of the human race; that their ability to do so is directly related to the classic nerd personality traits that some people despise (literal-mindedness, valuing truth over social niceties, obsession with mastering a craft, etc.); that what’s right about the stereotypical nerd personality easily outweighs what’s wrong about it; and that it’s not merely nerds who ought to adapt themselves to the world, but the world that ought to adapt itself to nerds.”

    While Aaronson is correct, I can already see how feminists will twist this into accusations of misogyny, that Aaronson wants to sexually harass and rape women, and that he’s the next Elliot Rodger.

    Nerdly types really do operate this way. And God bless them.

    What are Trekkies likely to do?

    If you read up enough on the westboro folks you’ll find its ran by lawyers who do outrageous shit then file (and win) lawsuites. It’s a money making scam.

    Got to say that that new banner (from the TV series Blandings. Based on the works of P G Wodehouse (think ‘Jeeves and Wooster’)) is growing on me. As this is a Male site, I might get round to gimping the pig into the image. The face is perfect.

    The Westboro Baptist Church is basically comprised of one family (very extended, and a family of lawyers as Ton mentioned). At least they’re picking on a famous person who lived a long, good life this time…usually they picket the funerals of young soldiers who died in combat. Really nice stuff like, “Your son/father/brother is dead because God hates fags” and so forth. They are some serious human garbage.

    I have to disagree about the first amendment “rights” thing, Tarn (though it has been taken to court many times and the court has agreed with you, so far…the fact that they are lawyers must have something to do with it, finding loopholes here and there).

    I’ve never understood how the Westboro Church has been able to successfully claim that a funeral isn’t a ‘captive audience’, when a student can’t mention ‘God’ at a graduation speech due to the potential for infringement on rights of the ‘captive audience’.

    Why would a graduation ceremony (never went to any of my own, didn’t care enough) holds the audience more ‘captive’ than a funeral for fallen loved ones? At any rate, I’m surprised no one has attacked these people, physically. I mean, really, really attacked them.

    In other words, it’s not the court decisions agreeing with my standpoint…it’s my standpoint acknowledging the current law of the land. There’s always hope they’ll do something so incredibly hateful that even our court system will deem them unworthy of the protections of the First Amendment. However, they’d probably have to beat up or kill a gay man or set a bomb at a funeral for it to finally get through the Powers That Be heads, and I don’t want that to happen…

    Pretty funny how those westborro pussies keep their mouths shut when 30 bikers in face masks show up to funerals. Or don’t fight back when you take away their signs etc. Or how the log dawgs never seem to witness when bikers stalk up and push them around, take their sign etc.
