Only men raised by single moms can have empathy for women and antipathy for men who commit crimes?


What a silly notion.

but yes it is depressing. but then you get over it and start to love people in spite of their flaws.

not much of a manwhore either, btw. just not me. i've seen too much......ick.

but for 56, dude, if you take care of yourself, you should be dating at about the 30-35 YO range. over 40 is touch and go, way to aggressive and more than a little desperate.

I never really fell in love with my ex-wife because she was NOT a silly little bird.

12. oh my! little buddy thats a lot of words.

actually, I believe fear forces women to bear an overblown sense of their own weaknesses and an overcompensatory set of behaviors to eliminate/hide/undo those weaknesses.

As such, women covet male strengths just as any man would love to be able to attract women as easily as they attract men.

The converse of this is Saudi Arabia, where men have a general overblown fear of their own weakness in the face of female attractiveness, and force women to cover themselves from head to toe at all times in public.

Which strangely is what most RadFems such as the ones over <<<<<< there, seem to want as well.

10 years ago they would hide their wedding rings or at least try. not anymore. they leave em on as a fuck you to their beta husband.

5 min of an alpha male is worth more than 5 years of marriage to "Mr. Stable and Respectful" beta.

its just bio-mechanics dude, cant fight it.

ETA: Girls night out with more than 2 or 3, usually ok. Just 2 or 3, look out and get a lawyer. they alway pick their least "judgy" friends so as not to feel bad when "it just happened".

You're setting the record straight. The very important way I know that these types who are so shallow and comically dabble in the very serious issue of misogyny are 'off the beam', is because I know real men, like the author of this piece, and you! And many many more. The type of 'punk squad' boys are nowhere close to the fineness of a good man.

No offense to any members of 'punk squad'. I feel sure there is no one here who wants to own that label.

49. LOL. Ted Nugent's wife files for divorce after being outed as Ted Nugent's wife

http://www.newslo.com/ted-nugents-wife-files-for-divorce-after-being-outed-as-ted-nugents-wife/

"DALLAS – Shemane Nugent, the wife of rock musician and gun enthusiast Ted Nugent, filed for divorce today, spelling an end to the couple’s 24-year marriage. According to a source close to the Nugent family, Shemane, 51, decided that “she had no choice” but to separate from Nugent after “the whole world discovered that she was married to him.”

Shemane—who was relatively unknown until recently—was outed as Ted Nugent’s wife on Friday, when she attempted to pass through Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport security with a firearm in her carry-on luggage. The handgun—which Shemane claimed to have been carrying because she had received death threats—was discovered, and she was taken into custody. “I had totally forgotten it was in there,” Nugent claimed after being released on bail. “I mean, Jesus, I live with Ted Nugent, a man who carries half an armory in his ass crack. We’ve got guns all over the goddamn place.”

Mrs. Nugent maintains that she should not have been detained for a “simple mistake,” but did issue a public apology in which she expressed remorse for having spent over two decades married to “a man who once publicly threatened to murder Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton, and who has referred to black people as ‘mongrels’.”

17. Article

Another piece written by a no talent hack who thinks he discovered some great insight.

Wow, men suck because they start wars, wow it's tough to learn to control yourself, wow it's not okay to rape and murder when a woman rejects you.

Here's another wow moment for Mr. Linker, there are about 151.4 million men in the US, even if all the murders in the US were committed by men and all other violent crime were committed only by men guess how many men did absolutely NOTHING wrong yesterday? C'mon Mr. Linker you self righteous turd you know the answer don't you?

The number would be about 150.2 million men who did nothing wrong for the entire year if every single crime reported to the FBI was committed by a man. That's assuming that every crime was committed by a virgin criminal committing his first crime and not a repeat offender committing multiple crimes.

Mr. Linker would have you believe that we need to have a national discussion over the problems of male rage when the total crime in the nation is committed by 1.3% of all the men in the nation. Murder by men is a bit less of a percentage at 0.00009% of the population, assuming they are all male only perpetrators. When you realize that a majority of murders are committed in very specific areas over drug turf in urban centers well at that point Mr. Linker's idiocy is revealed in total for all the world to see.

Thanks for a useless article Mr. Linker may your career continue to be a meaningless exercise in the hysteria du jour.
