Just Say No


 

Commener Earl states,

An older than him already divorced actress who was a SJW in her youth and her mother was a social worker…didn’t grow up with a father the whole time because of divorce…talks about gender equality and identifies as a feminist.

I mean how much more proof do I have to give you he’s an idiot for missing about a thousand red flags.

Commener Yoda then stated,

Never marry an SJW one should.
A life of pain silly it would be

What would marriage to an SJW be like?  Especially if you are not dominant?

First of all, SJWs must virtue signal.  In fact, their whole identity can be built around this. Virtue signaling his all about posturing about your pet causes, often with little effort being expended to actually solve the problems associated with those cause.  Effort goes into posturing (often advocating the spending of other peoples money) which apparently generates the maximum feel goods without actually requiring contact with people that they don’t really want to be near.  Sacrifice is not required.

Yes indeed, sacrifice is not required.  Probably she would bring this to the marriage also.  More specifically, her sacrifice is not required.  Her virtue should shield her from such needs.  He, on the other hand, must sacrifice.  Since effective marriages are based on sacrifice of both and compromise by both, this is would not be a formula for success.

Furthermore, SJWs just don’t understand reality; particularly human nature.  If a man could just ignore all of the lunacy that comes forth, things could work out.  But alas, modern marriages as prescribed by Feminism are not as such.  Being dragged around fiscally, emotionally, mentally by a such a woman is no way to go through life.

Will she give you sex regularly?  Who knows?  Probably not.

What to do?  Steer clear.

  13. Every man who marries a woman, marries an SJW.

    1% of women are able to control natural tendencies on their own, though they would rather have a man do it for them. Sadly, this 1% is imaginary.

    2% of women marry a man whose frame is strong enough to overwhelm the woman’s natural tendencies, while he is in close proximity and she’s perfectly happy with it then. When she’s just around other women, she’s straight up SJW.

    98% (yes it adds up, see above) are SJW 24/7/365, though they lie about it as necessary to gain men’s attention and/or resources, see Pettibone, Southern, et al.

    It is rumored that Meghan Markle has had breast augmentation so as to have a more appealing image which is a procedure many actresses believe is a necessary in their career. In her early age, Meghan is seen to have had smaller breasts which are something different with what we have seen lately. In her recent photos, Meghan is seen to have bigger, rounder and attractive breasts than they were years back which makes many people speculate that she has had breast implantation

    THERE’S NO IQ TEST FOR BEING A POLITICIAN: Sign Referencing Civil War Hero Is Sexual Harassment, Says Massachusetts Lawmaker: Rep. Michelle DuBois wants to remove a statehouse sign that reads “General Hooker Entrance” because it is an affront to “women’s dignity.”

    But if there were such a test in Massachusetts, it would feature an IQ ceiling, not a floor. . . .

    Plus: “Of course, DuBois is positioning herself as a crusader against sex-based harassment and patriarchy. But attitudes like hers—which treat women as excessively fragile beings, and which posit that female ‘dignity’ is diminished by even so slight an association with sex work as walking under a door that says ‘hooker’—just props up old-fashioned and patriarchal ideas about sex and gender.”

    It would be easy to write an argument for restoring the patriarchy based solely on feminists’ statements about how weak, fragile, and stupid women are.

    Whakatu is the old Maori name for the area where the town of Nelson now stands.

    As for Whakatu beer, I’m not sure I’ve tried it. The taste of most NZ beer is uncomplicated. My own CDDU tastes only of malt, hops and yeast. After lot of trial and error I got the balance right. The yeast-fart is crucial. If it doesn’t leave legs inside the glass, chuck it out. Beware legless beer.

    It was alright, I prefer something with a little more strength of flavour. Sadly the land lord doesn’t so much because those don’t sell as well in these ‘ere parts, moi luvver (Tarn bait).

    The draft beers are generally good though I prefer Old Hooky that I can get delivered cheaper than buying a pint in the pub (£2 a 500ml (American ‘pint’) bottle vs £3.60 for 568ml (Imperial pint)).

    The previous example of flavour based discrimination was Czech Staropramen lager on draft (bottles are widely available in the UK). It was lovely (I’ve liked it for years) but next time I went back he had a 4% abv Staropramen brew instead. S’alright, I guess, but no real character or bite to it. Budvar (the real, legit Budweiser ‘King of Beers’) is another favourite though it did tend to give me headaches the next day. Which is better than Newcastle Brown that gives me the…enough of that! Moving back to the original subject

    Thanks for the pronunciation, I shall the bar man that I was right. I guessed the beginning but didn’t know it there were tricks in the rest. I found the Nelson bit but the wifi was crap and the Kiwi pronunciation sites didn’t give me anything to work with.

    “The Lottery” is a classic short story written by Shirley Jackson in 1948. It’s the tale of a rural, farming community in America of about three hundred residents. The town seems normal by all accounts as it prepares for a traditional, harvest-time event known as The Lottery.

    Then in the 1990s, something started to change dramatically in how her students responded to the sobering tale. Rather than being horrified by it, some claimed they were bored by it, while others thought the ending was “neat.”

    When Ms. Haugaard pressed them for more of their thoughts, she was appalled to discover that not one student in the class was willing to say the practice of human sacrifice was morally wrong! She describes one interaction with a student, whom she calls Beth:

    “‘Are you asking me if I believe in human sacrifice?’ Beth responded thoughtfully, as though seriously considering all aspects of the question. ‘Well, yes,’ I managed to say. ‘Do you think that the author approved or disapproved of this ritual?’

    “I was stunned: This was the [young] woman who wrote so passionately of saving the whales, of concern for the rain forests, of her rescue and tender care of a stray dog. ‘I really don’t know,’ said Beth; ‘If it was a religion of long standing, [who are we to judge]?’”

    According to Variety, The Crown producers attributed Matt Smith’s higher salary to his “‘Doctor Who’ fame.” As an actor who had recently skyrocketed to stardom by being on a wildly popular TV show, Matt Smith was in a position to ask for a large salary. Claire Foy, a relatively unknown actress at the time, was not in such a position. Even so, creative director Suzanne Mackie said, “Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen.”

    There’s a problem here. In general, the determining factor deciding an actor’s salary in Hollywood is his or her fame. The more famous the actor, the more likely the audience will be to come and see the show. This allows actors to ask for higher sums of money after they’ve appeared in popular shows and movies. Saying that whichever actress plays the Queen will automatically receive more money than her co-stars implies that the actress’ femaleness is somehow deserving of financial reward.

As a man it is your responsibility to ensure that you are equipped as well as you can be in order to do your part to civilize and guide the following generation.

    Marriage is very tough for men right now which means that the stakes are even higher. There is no point complaining about the decline of Western civilization if you have voluntarily opted out of the process because you find it all too hard. But perhaps this is as nature intended. After all, more than 80% of men who have ever lived have not passed on their genetic code through siring children.

    St. Catherine’s University in St. Paul, Minnesota, canceled a leadership conference last fall because too many of the scheduled speakers were white.

    For much of his adult life, Galloway was a golden boy of Canadian literature—earning almost a million dollars in book advances, and becoming chair of the University of British Columbia’s prestigious creating-writing program when he was still in his 30s. But the golden era ended abruptly in 2015, when UBC suspended Galloway, following the internal circulation of allegations that he’d sexually assaulted a student.

    The university’s move, announced in such a way as to suggest that Galloway might be a violent sexual predator who still terrorized the campus, made national headlines. Galloway became suicidal, and was involuntarily institutionalized by authorities in the United States, where he was traveling at the time. Back in Vancouver, UBC deputized the ringleader of the school’s anti-Galloway’s faction to recruit students who might provide yet more allegations against the former department chair. Galloway’s world seemed to be disintegrating.

    Instead, it was the case that fell apart. A former British Columbia supreme court justice whom the university had commissioned to investigate the allegations determined that the worst Galloway had done was conduct a consensual affair with a middle-aged UBC creative-writing student. Much of the criticism began shifting to the university administration. The summary dismissal of Galloway (who was formally terminated in 2016) now looked like a panicky PR move by a university that recently had botched an unrelated sexual-assault controversy.

    Enter Atwood, who added her signature to a web-published open letter “seeking clarity and fairness in UBC’s handling of the Steven Galloway case.” That letter did not pronounce on Galloway’s guilt or innocence, and confined itself to addressing the procedural shortcomings surrounding his treatment. Nevertheless, it immediately became an object of fury among Galloway’s critics, who cited it as proof that CanLit’s upper crust was circling the wagons in defence of a friend. Rak herself wrote a manifesto attacking the open letter, which she said left her “shocked and appalled.”

    There’s a hearing scheduled for today at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) which should bear watching. Lake Ingle, a senior at the school, is set for a showdown with Dr. Allison Downie, his professor in Special Topics In Christianity. She kicked Lake out of her class a while back for being “disruptive” and disturbing his classmates during a discussion of “white male privilege, systemic male sexism and mansplaining.”

    @earl: ” Marriage as an institution does not exist for men and women.”

    Can you clarify that please. God made Eve for Adam because it was not good for him to be alone. Sounds like God’s institution DID exist for the man and the woman. Although there was the expectation added that the two would become one flesh – presumably in the form of a child, rather than through crawling into each others’ skin.

    One of the ideas that has circulated endlessly for years is that women aren’t interested in nice guys, but they do love jerks. In all fairness, this idea didn’t just spring full-blown from nothing into an entrenched dating trope. This concept is a regular theme in movies where the love interest is dating the biggest douche on earth at the start of the movie before the “nice guy” hero inevitably steals her away. Moreover, there are more than a few men, mostly ones who think of themselves as “nice guys,” who believe they’re “different” from the average guy. After all, they’re nice and wonderful and caring while they think the average man is an uncaring jerk who just wants to trick a girl into sex before he takes off out the window with $20 worth of cab fare he stole out of her purse.

    The problem with letting this idea stand unchallenged is that it gets men going in the wrong direction. There are guys thinking, “What kind of world is it when I have to be a jerk to get a woman to like me?” or alternately, “Well, I don’t really want to be a d*ck, but if that’s what I have to do to get laid….” and it’s all crap. It’s false. It’s just BS

    The Care2 Petition urges Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and Smith to “show that they stand with women and do the right thing,” while asking the actor and streaming giant to donate the difference in Smith’s pay to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund.

    The Crown drive — which was near 22,000 signatures of its goal of 25,000 — comes two months after a similar petition urged Mark Wahlberg to donate the $1.5 million more that he made during reshoots for All the Money in the World after news broke that his co-star, Michelle Williams, received a mere $1,000 for the same work. (Wahlberg and his agency, WME, would eventually donate $2 million to the Time’s Up fund.)

    Shaming people into paying everybody the same wage … coming soon to a country near you. What would the founding fathers say about this “improvement” to capitalism? Testosterone chases exceptional rewards. When the rewards are no longer exceptional, testosterone goes fishing.

    What a wonderful world that will be, when most of the testosterone has gone fishing.

    (I suppose there’s a joke in there somewhere about testosterone looking for fish that need bicycles, but I meant real fishing.)
