The VD Project: the Onslaught Has Started

by zed on February 3, 2011

I almost never partake in any of the Lame Stream Media. My exposure is limited to about an hour per day listening to the radio on my way to and from work. And, I listen to an oldies station with a listener base which is probably a bit older than the average radio audience.

So, while the Valentine’s Day campaign of commercial harassment may be in full swing, I have so far only heard one VD-oriented commercial. It was for a jewelry store, not surprisingly, and put a somewhat subtle spin on one of the two primary messages used to hawk this bogus and insincere Hallmark holiday.

“What do you get the woman who has everything for Valentine’s Day? MORE of everything.”

Channeling the spirit of Madonna, the material girl, obviously.

However, tonight, it became clear to me that I can run, but I can’t hide from the relentless emotional coercion and harassment. On Yahoo’s main page (where one gets redirected when one logs out of Yahoo mail) the lead article was “6 mistakes men make on Valentine’s Day.”

Yup, yup, yup, men be so stupid they don’t even know when the day is!!

Memo to men: Valentine’s Day is on February 14. In years past, Yahoo.com has noticed a spike in men searching for an answer to the question: “When is Valentine’s Day?” as the day fast approaches. Of all the holidays on the yearly calendar, the one designated for romance never fails to trip guys up.

Part space filler, part hype for their advertising support, the article manages to deliver a whole truckload of contempt for men, hidden behind an obviously fake smile – “Just kidding” is the most abused excuse in the world to try to hide hate-filled messages behind a false facade.

So, here are the six deadly sins that just about every man will commit at least one of in the next 10-11 days.

Mistake #1: Getting words of wisdom from your local drug store.
Mistake #2: Letting a bear do your bidding.
Mistake #3: Declaring Valentine’s Day a ploy for consumers
(see, I’m guilty already!)
Mistake #4: Sharing the day with your BlackBerry
Mistake #5: Expecting her to make the plans
Mistake #6: Under-dressing

So – Memo to all those grrls who don’t have a man to terrorize into having to demonstrate insincere affection on February 14th:
you might give some thought to how you are portrayed in the media which makes a lot of men very glad to be single on that day.

Mistake #0: Not breaking up with her on February 13th.

Mistake #1-6 – cutting off your balls

Memo to Yahoo: Anyone who actually treats your Venereal Disease day advice with the sincerity it doesn’t deserve has already committed Mistake #1-6 and is now no longer attractive to his soon to be ex- girlfriend/wife.

We should declare Feb 13 as official break up day…I agree. Western women have unofficially declared the day after New Years as divorce day:

“For most people returning to work today it is a sluggish start to the year, with phones barely ringing and plenty of time for chit-chat with colleagues about the Christmas holidays. Not so for divorce lawyers, for whom the first day after the New Year break has come to be known in the legal biz as D-Day, with D standing for divorce. ”

I move that we make Feb. 13 the official “Dump Her Day”.

Nice idea.

It is crucial that you all grasp fully the influence the MSM does indeed possess – it is highly effective propaganda.

Especially in Government Schools against dumbed-down, victimized youth. There, creating Janissaries is Liberals’ ultimate goal.

Education bureaucrats are fully aware of Goebbels and McLuhan.

Until propaganda is subverted into a pro-male message, you will struggle to combat an army of brainwashed drones.

When Sargent Shriver died recently, I read or heard multiple references he made in the 60s and 70s to “materialism” being a serious problem.

Of course, we don’t hear politicians decry materialism anymore. For approximately half of our population, materialism has become religion.

What stands out to me is the male-shaming tonality of these commercials. “Make her special, or else.” I suspect the brands aren’t even trying to attract male consumers as much as they are female consumers.

This isn’t for valentine’s day, but JCPenny goes nuclear on men with this campaign.

First, don’t forget to remind her (those of you with wives or girlfriends) when steak and a bj day is.

Now that’s out of the way, while I realise I’m a bit abnormal, I have always hated Valentine’s Day. It’s a disgusting abuse of people’s emotions and it makes me cringe. I do feel sorry for guys whose wives and girlfriends throw tantrums if they aren’t showered with gifts on Valentine’s Day. The idea of going out for dinner that day is also totally cringe-worthy – how cornball can you get? I think it would be more fun to go out and make fun of the suckers who paid way too much to sit in a restaurant full of other sickly couples with their manufactured gestures of love. Makes me think of that Monty Python sketch with the two Americans and the conversation menu.

I told my bf that I don’t want chocolates (I’d honestly rather have a packet of beef jerky) – and if he insists on getting something to just get some flowers (no, I don’t expect long stem roses or some expensive shit – in fact, I expect nothing and that would be OK). The idea I had that I thought would be kind of nice is for us to write each other letters. I’m not that great at verbalising “I love you” so this is actually probably harder for me than it is for him, but it’s a way of doing something that costs nothing but has meaning. When he was away for a while, for some reason he never got the letters I sent (I think his sister took them and read them herself, jeez), so I thought this might be nice.

I know no one believes a female who says “don’t get me anything” and with good reason, but he didn’t get me anything last year and I couldn’t care less and he knows it. Bitches need to grow up. All the whining women do is embarrassing.

Their “trending now” or top searches are usually about the Kardashians or Lindsey Lohan and other celebrity gossip.

I was half-listening to the news the other day, and they said that men spend TWICE as much as women on VD. I would imagine if those figures were broken down a bit more, one would find that half (or more) of the money the women spend is on themselves, girlfriends, or female coworkers.

Valentine’s Day is, I think, a great time for free men to go out and celebrate. Nothing can make you feel better about your life than seeing those poor suckers going through the routine with their smug girlfriends. And, although it’s not very nice, it does tend to lend a little schadenfreude to one’s life to see the desperate expression on the faces of the single women. The ones my age all have emotional crises this time of year. Must be a bonanza for mental health pros.

If a man goes out and hires himself a good time with a ‘lady of the night’ it is the height of misoginy; a moral outrage that encompasses all that’s wrong woth our society.

But if a man doesn’t want to have to spend a fortune on a few tokens of ‘love’ that makes him an insensitive caveman who should be dumped on the spot.

Next time some feminist nitwit lectures you about the evils of paying for sex remind her of the outrageous shaming tactics used against men as part of the commercialisation of ‘romance’.

I’m not too concerned with the mental well being of women who are alone on VD. There will surely be an article on “The Frisky” about coping.

“By Yourself on Valentines Day?”
Here’s Three Things You can Do
1) Go out with your favorite gal pal and drink margaritas.
2) Snuggle up with a cup of hot cocoa and “Eat Pray Love”.
3) Write a letter to your ex, telling him how you feel.

Maybe I’m off-track, but I never did anything out of the ordinary just because the date was Feb14.

May I make a suggestion?

It’s not about deleting V day: rather it’s about setting the calendar straight.

Basically, my suggestion is to add one day to the month of February to make it 29 days instead of 28.

But… it will make the year one day too many!!

Tsk..tsk..tsk.. Feb14 has been skipped in order to fit another day in February.

So, V day will still exists and it will take place on Feb14 but… feb14 no longer exists because it has become unnecessary (just like men!).

Gents, it has been my great pleasure to solve you V day problem.

Now, can I have a few thumbs up?

I’m all for multiculturalism, so I’d suggest to the guys stuck with a western princess that they embrace the SWPLish multicultural meme and suggest a Japanese style Valentine’s Day.

I’m guessing that’d fly like a lead balloon, at which point one can accuse her of being closed-minded for not wanting to explore the different flavours of the world.

I wonder what happens when one crosses the wires of rancid leftie feel-good memes like that, though I suspect the “me, me, me!” one would prove to be the dominant one.

Rebel February 3, 2011 at 14:14

What’s the origin of Valentine day?

The earliest settlers were French.
They were scattered all along the East coast.

They had no women, except the locals.

The king of France sent “ladies” by the shiploads in order to populate the land and… to cash in on income tax. (harnessing men’s surplus of labor.. smart king)

The guys, awaiting their next wife, were calling her Valentine for lack of another name. (she was the Matilda of the Australians, so to speak), and were all too eager to marry, not knowing what laid ahead.

When the ships landed, usually on Feb14, weather permitting, and thusly called Valentine Day, (St Valentin) each man would pick a wife and get married.

Why did the men marry those women?

Because they would lose their hunter license if they didn’t.
For them, it meant no possible livelihood. (Caesar thought of that, too)

As far as I know, this is the true story. Or so it seems.

In other words, Valentine day celebrates the day men’s slavery began in North America. Et puis allons danser.

We do need to celebrate like we need a hole in the head.

The French kings were evil: first the women, then the guillotine. (… although, in the case of the guillotine,…)

There’ two types of VD. One is a potentially serious affliction that can be caught from sexual relations with a woman. Symptoms include tiredness, lack of sex drive, acute pain in the groin region and loss of work productivity. It’s difficult to treat as the parasite responsible is very demanding and difficult to get rid of.

The other is a bacterial infection treatable with antibiotics and rest.

I’ve said to every guy I’ve dated (and the one I married) not to buy me anything, and I meant it, and I wasn’t upset in the cases where they actually didn’t buy anything. But as I already said, I am not the norm, but I do exist, and if you don’t want to be stuck with a whiny princess anyway, why not test her? If it’s a set-up, then you learned something valuable.

To be fair, average and stupid women can be every bit as deceitful as intelligent women, and in many cases they are better than their smarter sisters at using a woman’s best weapon: emotional appeal. An 85 IQ woman can squirt tears out of her eyes and say “he frightened me” just as skillfully as a female chess grandmaster. And probably more convincingly, to be honest, because guile is clearly discernible to the trained eye.

When I was a teenager in the 80s in England Valentines Day was the day guys got a card from girls who liked them. Yeah what an amazing thought – girls actually giving.
The whole point was the guy had to try and guess who his admirer was. In other words it was a fun thing for both sexes and guys on Valentine’s Day had a great time trying to figure out who sent their card and hoping it was a girl they liked back.
Sometime it just got turned into the “men buy women stuff or else you don’t love her” day. I guess the money loving business fucks just have to destroy everything.

Valentines day is just another example of the matrix telling the man how and when and where to use his sexual power. Domesticating feminizing insult.

Dudes are so feminized and domesticated u hear stories of the girl and cetified male sexing eachother where neithr one of them orgasms. This is because the man forgot that to have sex u need a that very thing that had to be disregarded in order to establish that dear relationship.

Feminists aren’t thrilled at that negative portrayal of women either.

“As far as I can tell, I’m a pretty typical woman for my education level. Want less materialistic dates? Date more intelligent women.”

Educated women are trained to hate men. Colleges are feminazi boot camps. My sister went to one, I know what they teach chicks.

“Feminists aren’t thrilled at that negative portrayal of women either.”

FUCK FEMINISTS AND THEIR FEELINGS

I can see why ya’ll would want to cover up the fact that a lot of women are interested in “THINGS”,though. It’s absolutely true. How many women describe their “soul mate” as a “broke-ass homeless bum”? A lot of women aren’t interested in anything except “THINGS”.

I agree an unintelligent woman can be deceitful but you have to admit deceit, when done well, takes guile and guile is another word for intelligence.

I will add that the only two truley wealthy women I dated where the most demanding, the stingiest and the most material.

I dated the vice president of ShowTime for comedy. When I broke up with her she was angry and kept my camera. I really couldn’t afford another 300.oo digital camera at the time and the only pictures were pics of my son as a baby.

She knew that she was taking away memories of my son by keeping that camera.

@ Thag & Amanda,

If your intention was to claim that you are different, using this thread as an opening to do the typical female song and dance of “I, I, I, me, Me, ME” is likely to have the opposite effect. The OP was intended to point out the commercialization of “RO-mance”, not to give women readers the opportunity to attention-whore by blowing their own horn.

Until articles which reflect the attitudes you claim to have start appearing in the media, there is no reason to believe your claims are reflective of anything, or even true.

Yeah, smart women get you in other ways, as you point out above. If I were a wealthy man with an intelligent wife I’d be really nervous about divorce — women with brains will pick you clean if they put effort into it.

However, my point is that just because a woman is average or below doesn’t mean you can be complacent. Sure, it’s easier to catch her cheating and easier to hide assets from her, but in response she will often resort to the most basic – and effective – tactic. That tactic is to cry hysterically, make vague accusations and point a finger at a man — even a little girl can do that easily enough. Next thing you know a half dozen armed men rush in to kick your ass and haul you to prison, some slick lawyer takes advantage of the incident, and you’re more thoroughly screwed than you would be with even a smart, conniving wife who knows how to take the entire pie.

I think stupid women are more dangerous to a man’s well-being than intelligent ones — you run a higher risk of being killed, beaten or arrested because they always raise the stakes, which triggers the white knights to come in guns a blazin’. At least the smart ones know that their own future comfort is dependent on at least keeping you alive, employed and not too damaged to make those support payments.

Amanda, I give third-wave feminists some credit for being more positive towards men, but you’re not going to be celebrated by me just because the whip you use on men has a more velvety tip.

We never hear third-wave feminists standing up and decrying men being made into a pariah and a permanent underclass. All we hear from you is “Not All Feminists Are Like That!”

Third wave still walks in lockstep with second-wave on virtually every issue, from Affirmative Action hiring quotas to legal discrimination via VAWA and IMBRA to Title IX to educational discrimination against male students to the bullshit “gender wage gap” mythology.

Third-wave feminists aren’t really any different from any other feminist until they’re willing to push for equality rather than maintain female privilege.

What Amanda wrote (February 3, 2011 at 17:41) sounds persuasively reasonable, and young men can still be enticed by such tales, because many of them still want to believe.

And why wouldn’t they? After all, they are good men (but I am being redundant), and they expect others to be the same.

This is why it is important to keep showing them the endless examples of how almost all women actually do and want the opposite of what they claim, and that this has been true throughout history.

Teach them about the reality of the world and then, in that context!, have them take a woman’s demands and ask themselves: “If I loved someone, would I ever want to put that person in such a position?”

Nah, just chiming in on not being a fan of Valentine’s day. It’s sort of difficult not to come across that way I suppose, but you’re free to think I’m full of shit if you like. I don’t much like any day where adults are expected to buy gifts for each other, and that includes Christmas and birthdays. I just think it’s childish, and most people think I’m an awful cynic for that, but I think Valentine’s day is the ultimate in cynicism. The ads like “every kiss begins with Kay” are one of the reasons I don’t watch TV – I just can’t stand it.

Sorry if it came off as attention-whoring. I just figure that if a woman says “don’t buy me anything” and it’s a set-up, why not turn it around and make the set-up yours – i.e. if she throws a tantrum, that’s the end of that. I can’t imagine behaving that way as an adult – I can see being a bit disappointed if you’ve got the idea in your head that “stuffed bear with an “I love you” heart means he loves me”, but hysterics? And if that’s how she defines love, I’d sure want to know that before I got dumb enough to put a ring on it.

In Japan, women give men chocolate on Valentine’s day. A month later, on March 14, the men give chocolate to the girls. I like that a lot better than the situation in the West.

Except that the women are expected to buy very cheap chocolates, men are expected to buy much more expensive ones, and if I remember correctly, other stuff as well. Yes, it is a little bit better, but it is still pedestaling the women. Also, what kind of men do you think the women give the chocolates to? Yes, the alfa thugs, the CEO’s, the TV celebrities and other high status men. Nothing new under the land of the rising sun.

When you’re woman pre-empts V-Day by telling you “please don’t buy me anything, I know this is just a stupid Hallmark creation designed to sell things we don’t need…besides, everyday should be a day where we appreciate each other…”

…you just MIGHT have a keeper.

Or a two-faced, hypocrite, lying beatch, who scolds and then sulks and who knows what else, if you don’t read her TRUE wishes behind that facade of not wanting anything. Maybe she is saying that so you can surprise her by STILL buying her lots of stuff, even though “she didn’t expect it”.

Also, maybe she changes her mind the next day (or the next second – women are known to do that)..

The point is, women can (and will) say anything that will make them seem like good and moral beings, while they proceed in doing whatever they actually desire to do.

So, a woman can say all these nice things, while simultaneously really lusting for you to get her lots of chocolate and who knows what else. And she will get offended, if you didn’t read her mind – if you commit the crime of taking her seriously, she will be seriously offended. This is the case of many women, sadly.

It is sick, it is twisted, but this is how a typically female mind works – if you take whatever she does or says seriously instead of reading her mind or dominating her (doing what you are going to do anyway, despite of what she says) — and let me say that in my opinion any civilized being would actually take a discussion like this seriously (unless that being knew the truth about women etc.) — there will be scorn and wrath and all those nasty things because you actually believed she meant what she said!

Remember, that’s what men do – men say what they mean, they mean what they say (at least with close friends or people they trust). Women do not.

All that said, however – if the woman does that pre-empting, AND proves it by actually remaining cheerful, appreciative, having great and loving sex with you even if you don’t buy her anything on that day, and never mentions anything about it again afterwards, and never holds a grudge about that – THEN you know you have a “keeper”. Not before.

If that is what you read into the “lecture” being given men about the mistakes they make on Valentine’s Day, you obviously missed the whole point. There was no corresponding bit about “6 mistakes women make on Valentine’s Day.” It was clear and bald supremacy and entitlement. “Equality” doesn’t even inhabit the same universe as the bimbo who wrote that article.

They’ve merely retrenched and adapted their positioning tactics to better suit the times. It’s the new kinder/gentler, “pro-men” brand of feminism, (“Yeah, were not like those tired old hags from the 70′s. We’re the more hip/cool version of feminism.”). They manipulate men as a group as well as they do individually. It’s the only thing they’re very adept at, that men never seem fathom.

Going way too far here, speaking as someone who thinks that marriage should be banned.

-CK

It’s a working boat here — not a good place for ladies. I think there’s plenty of room for women to be involved and there should be places for them to engage in conversation without being subject to rough treatment, but it just isn’t here. A lot of the women I talk to offline who read The Spearhead agree on that point, and offline I’m pretty reasonable and polite, so it isn’t because I’m browbeating them.

The thing is, we men can be a rough bunch when left to our own devices, but we tend to get things done better that way, too.

So, to sum it up, this site can’t afford to make concessions to more delicate sensibilities, but I understand why people might object to that, and I fully support the creation of places where they can be accommodated.

Except that the women are expected to buy very cheap chocolates, men are expected to buy much more expensive ones, and if I remember correctly, other stuff as well.

Honme (‘true love’ chocolates) are never the cheap ones. Women are expected to make their own, or buy really good chocolate at the department stores. The stores here are now full of chocolate molds and kits, little bottles of brandy and cointreau etc for flavorings, and books on how to make truffles. The cheaper chocolates (still $5-$8 per box) (‘giri’ or ‘returning a favor’ chocolates) go to the guy at the station who punches their ticket in the morning, their city bus driver, the doorman at the company, and co-workers and their boss etc. The $50-$100 boxes, or the homemade ones, go to boyfriends, fiances and husbands.

‘White Day’ is nowhere near as commercially successful. Convenience stores have pre-made up packages to make the shopping easy for guys. They usually have white chocolate, or a stuffed toy, or a pair of lace undies in them. ‘Baum kuchen’, a German cake coated with white chocolate, is also pushed for White Day ($5-$15 per box of cake).

It’s Christmas Eve that guys in Japan are expected to buy a present or take their girlfriends out to dinner, it’s similar to Valentine’s Day in the US, but the advertising/browbeating/shrill reminders are all absent (thank all the deities for that). Friendship/couple rings are popular. It’s automatically diamonds or anything like that , although some guys will pop the question on Christmas Eve.

The single main reason women have succeded in creating this world of misandry is because not enough Men said NO (me included) when it was needed & now the long fight of playing ‘catch up’ (100% needed) is a lot harder.

@Kel

In Japan, women give men chocolate on Valentine’s day. A month later, on March 14, the men give chocolate to the girls. I like that a lot better than the situation in the West.

Two additional points that I would like to add:

1) On March 14, men give chocolate to those women whom they are interested in. Therefore Valentine’s Day in Japan is basically a ‘find out in one month’s time if he likes you’ day for the ladies.

2) Japanese women also give giri-choco (‘obligation chocolate’) to their co-workers, friends etc. on Feb 14. So it’s not just a thing between lovers.

Valentine’s Day, much like Father’s Day, Mother’s Day and even Christmas (stripped of any religious significance) etc, are nothing more than crass commercialism. It’s all good though, if you’re a florist, a restaurant owner or a gift shop owner.

Valentine’s Day feeds perfectly into the entitlement complex for our feminist princess of the West.

“How big a hole is he going to burn in his pocket for me?”
“To what extend will he place me upon a pedestal and grovel meekly before me?”
“How much more will I gain in comparison to my female friends?”

I think it was Tom Leykis who mentioned that V-day is the best time to perform a DTB. Consequently, if you’re game enough for comforting lonely, (recently dumped?) vaginas on Feb 14th, go for it.

That said, recognize Valentine’s Day for the BS it is, and go about your own lives as usual.

There’s just too much money to ignore V.D. I really have to hide my face and wash my hands the day after. I sorta hope none of my friends see me.

Christopher

Women by and large remain conveniently silent about the obvious gynocentrism that pervades our culture. All the benefits, social programs, female bias’s in law, unofficial female bias’s in courts, affirmative action, etc women happily enjoy without shame says much about the narcissistic nature of women in general.

While feminisms existence is based entirely on emotional pleas to men for the sake of womens welfare it is quite obvious that women do not similarly care about men and it is looking more and more like an inherent psychological tendency that is only exasperated by culture. There are only so many double standards and hypocrisy anyone can take before he loses all respect, and that is all it is, not hate. I just don’t have any respect for women as a group and why should I?

The wage gap is seen as oppression while the college gap is seen as female accomplishment and few people appreciate the contradiction, is it cognitive dissonance or assumed female supremacy? And whats more the only thing women seem to care about about the lack of men in higher education is its effect on their dating pool. Of course I could go on about all the bullshit that takes place but I know you’ve read many of this sites articles, so I don’t need to bother. All of this ‘bullshit’ makes it hard to ignore what it implies about womens morality.

When I was four my parents marriage wasn’t doing so well, they separated. My mother moved us halfway across the world, regardless of the circumstances of the divorce the only way you can morally justify removing a mans children from him is to assume that children belong to their mother. What does that make a father?A tool to be used and abused. Nearly all women are complicit in this assumption, they simply do not care. She even whined that she didn’t get child support, and then when she managed to get it she whined about the amount because he managed to hide a great deal of his assets.

Regardless, the misogyny is irrelevant. I don’t care if anyone hates women or men. It is the truth that matters, no doubt many of our perceptions of women are going to be inaccurate as it is with ALL knowledge but that doesn’t mean they aren’t decent approximations. It is also true that a lot of these perceptions are subject to irrational prejudice but what you seem to either ignore and/or do not care about is that many men are pissed off and for good reason.

When some guy supposedly “on our side” comes in here and starts throwing around the word misogynist, red flags go up.

Christopher, let’s see we have a few guys in here who might be a little angry and annoyed and make some edgy comments (which compared to some feminists sites are still mild), against a huge misandrist media, academia and government. What’s more important, the man who got his head split open by those two cops because he was a man, or a few men (women too) making fun of Valentines Day.

It used to be, as Journey and Mgtow have here pointed out, that Valentine’s Day was an opportunity to send a card to someone one was interested in but who was otherwise unaware of ones interest. The thrill (for boy or girl) was to receive a card from an unknown admirer. Even if one never discovered their identity you could at least for a day or so (and perhaps longer) feel flattered, as well as having the fun of trying to work out their identity.

It was the element of surprise that counted.

As I have said before, the fear now, is that if ones identity (on sending a card) was discovered that this might be used to support an allegation of stalking or sexual harrasement. I would not now, for that reason, send a Valentine’s card and might assume that any card I received was likewise from some woman who was mentally imbalanced. Very sad that this innocent yearly pleasure has been wrecked – and we know which of the two sexes has caused it, don’t we!

I have to agree with Paradoxtaur…Amanda is hysterical. I wonder if Amanda is ‘intelligent’ enough to explain to me how it came to pass that men were circumnagivating the globe while women had yet to innovate tongs into forceps thereby condemning tens of millions of women and babies to excruciating and painful deaths. The ONE task that men figured women MUST know more about than men? HAVING BABIES. Women were total failures at. Did someone from the ‘oppressive patriarchy’ leap out and blindfold women every time they went past a blacksmith using tongs to hold hot metal?

Men invented tongs the day after the first man burned his hand picking up a hot rock that was next to that new fangled thing called fire. Women could not innovate tongs to forceps to save the lives of tens of millions of their sistas and babies. A simple fact.

Where are these ‘intelligent women’ you speak of Amanda?

Women are SO DUMB they don’t know that perjury, kidnapping, extortion and theft are crimes and that these crimes are required to be punished. And they are SO DUMB they do not realise men are FED UP WITH THIS SHIT.

It doesn’t matter whether this distortion is based on ignorance or intentional – there is a vast difference between “asking” and threatening if the woman does not receive said gifts, or if the gift is not “good enough.”

Chris must own a jewelry store and see his normal February windfall being threatened.

Let me add my voice to the people in Japan who like Valentine’s Day or at least see that the way it’s done her is a lot more fair and equal than how it’s done in the West.

Some of the fun is being taken out of it; at my company, the women in the department chip in to collectively buy something for all the men, and then on March 14 we return the favor with a gift from all of us to all of them — a corporate approach that takes all personal feeling away from the occasion.

But it’s still possible for individual women to give chocolate to guys they like, and the women tend to recognize that the entire rest of the year, it’s usually the guys who have to bear the burden of confessing their interest in members of the opposite sex — none of that entitlement stuff.

I’m looking forward to it this year — and I’m not looking forward to ever experiencing it in the USA.

“Nergal, I’d imagine the proportion of women describing their soul mates as “broke-ass homeless bum” is similar to the proportion of men describing their soul mate as “broke-ass homeless bum”. that doesn’t mean people want things though, it means a lot of people want partners who are interesting, and who have passion and ambition.”

So you think men are interested in women’s money? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

A man will take a homeless woman off the street, clean her up, and then support her for the rest of her life. That tendency of men is the very one that enables little girls’ princess fantasies. A woman will write a song that goes “No,I don’t want no scrub, a scrub is a guy that won’t get no love from me, hanging out the passenger side of his best friend’s ride, trying to holler at me.”.

Women reject men with no money, they do it habitually,they do it callously. They reject broke men with prejudice ,meaning they refuse to even consider dating a homeless man.

“that doesn’t mean people want things though, it means a lot of people want partners who are interesting, and who have passion and ambition.”

NO, that means that WOMEN want partners with MONEY. Just admit it. Fess the fuck up, you’re not going to pull that “passion and ambition” shit on the men here, we know better. Whatever euphemism you use for “wealthy” we still realize that that’s what you’re talking about. You can play your semantical 3 card monty all day long, but we know that it’s a scam in order for you to hide your character flaws while you chastise men for theirs (which we ADMIT to,btw).

If you are sincere about wanting to make a positive difference (and I have no reason to believe that you aren’t), I would caution against using humor in sites like this one until you are fairly well known to the regulars. As a woman coming into a group of men who have mostly been through the feminist mill – including the family court – you have two strikes against you and a lot of guys will unload on your as their personal verbal punching bag. This recently happened to a well-known and generally respected contributor here called Hestia.

Much of my internet discussion experience has been in mostly female forums (mom boards and the like) and it is generally considered a bad idea to NOT use *I* words as much as possible….because otherwise one might seem like a know-it-all.

Yes, women force each other to walk on eggshells and load posts with all kinds of PC qualifiers, otherwise it’s shredder time. Isn’t it a shame that ‘objective points of view’ are so poorly tolerated? I have seen the atmosphere change gradually on an all-women’s ex-pat board over teh past 8 years or so as the crowd gets younger…those in their 20s and 30s are so much more contentious, and unwilling to let a misspeak slide or a differing opinion remain unchallenged, if actually tolerated at all. Having a 20+ year age difference with these women, I can see that their whole mode of interaction is much more confrontational and demanding of conformity than my generation. What a way to live.

Most likely. Supposedly liberated, women are now hypercritical of each other. Older women have always kept younger women in line, women who drank at home in the daytime, or cheated, or talked trash about their husbands (imagine!!!it used to be verboten!) or didn’t treat their neighbors right were cut out of the social circle. Pitch soils, and women were not allowed to act in a manner that would drag down the reputation of the entire circle, among those who cared about such things, at any rate. Outside of the standard rules (you don’t cheat, talk about you husband in a bad way, take good care of your kids, make a nice home, keep a clean house) there seemed to have been more room for individuality than there is now.

You’ve spent time on ‘mom boards’….you’ve probably seen what happens when someone bottle feeds in a group of breastfeeders, or someone puts their kid to bed in a separate room when the majority are attachment parenters. Anyone who has different parenting methods gets a drubbing and fast! On feminist boards the ‘child-free’ knock the ‘breeders’. Feminism was supposed to be about freedom of choice, but your choices aren’t valid unless approved of by the herd. And each group thinks that THEY have the right answer, only they know how to live right. They’re trying to regulate and control women’s lives. Doesn’t look very ‘liberated’ from here…

Marriage is about obligations to society, God, family, etc. The reason it doesn’t work very well today is that nobody takes that stuff seriously any longer. If it’s only what you feel you owe him, you’ll tire of it soon enough.

Paradoxotaur, my fiance would be pissed if i gave out his email to a bunch of “losers on the internet”. He doesn’t understand why I read sites like this, which is a shame, because he does care about men’s rights issues– he just hates the men’s rights movement.

I would too if I were trying to be optimistic about a pending marriage.

“Peter-Andrew, are you seriously wondering why men who were allowed educations and medical occupations made advances while women who were not allowed educations or medical occupations didn’t? I realize history isn’t always the most exciting of subjects, but do brush up on it!”

Lololololololololol.

“Brush up on it”,indeed!

Perhaps if you bothered to “brush up on it” you’d know the first woman to get her doctorate did so in the 1800′s. You’d also know that newly liberated black slaves who had been forbidden from so much as < reading developed jazz and blues music as well as a host of other inventions damn near the second they were freed, whereas women, who were required to play the piano in higher class families never developed any style of music at all and none of them ever attained the skill of Mozart who was fucking disabled in a critical area related to his talent.

Your “women weren’t allowed to x” spiel is a crutch. Most men weren’t allowed to study chemistry, they were burned at the fucking stake for doing it and yet Paracelsus and John Baptista Porta and other early chemists and pharmacologists still built the framework for these disciplines, and developed tools and methodology related to the trades that have survived to this very day . Don’t try to feed us that bullshit . For 90% of all history most men have been slaves of one form or another, and yet we still excelled in mathematics, geometry and every other logical pursuit until we had our hands and feet shackled so the women could get ahead. Some men made scientific discoveries related to aerodynamics using nothing more than their mind, a stick and a fucking stream, and you’re claiming “women weren’t allowed” to do that? Was there some law against women sticking a fucking twig in a creek that I’m not aware of?

You don’t know SHIT about history,hon. You’ve been brainwashed by feminist curriculum telling you that women were discriminated against and therefore COULDN’T have accomplished anything and you never bothered to even CHECK,did you?

How did schools get established? Did men go to school to learn how to form schools? NO. A bunch of men who spent their entire lives TRYING TO LEARN SHIT taught other men THE SHIT THEY SPENT 40 YEARS LEARNING. Did women do that? NO. That’s why men made most of the discoveries. It wasn’t “discrimination”,it was disinterest on the part of women. AND THAT is the TRUTH.

Women did not see how figuring out what lightning was would benefit THEM and so they did not do it. Men wanted to figure it out to benefit EVERYBODY and so they worked their asses off until they did.

Gents, this is the quality of brain dead bitches who show up here. Women were the midwives for a good 10,000 years. But let’s be generous 5,000 years. In 5,000 years, when men went from pointed sticks to circumnavigating the globe women, who were almost EXCLUSIVELY THE MID WIVES, could not innovate tongs to forceps.

And Amandas ‘theory’ about this? Ooohhh it was the evil patriarchy who didn’t let the women get an education so they could, you know, innovate tongs to forceps.

The stupidity of women used to amaze me. Now I just find it funny. No man could look at her comment and not laugh at the stupidity of it.

Paradoxotaur, my fiance

Poor bastard. The idea of being shackled to a woman as brain dead as Amanda would fill me with dread. This guy must be ‘loser central’ to be engaged to an woman this stupid. He obviously deserves her if he can’t see through this sort of shit she is putting here.

Having one of these stuck up his ass was often the only tangible result of an early male inventor or scientist’s genius during his lifetime,but yet women couldn’t invent because they “weren’t allowed”.

men who were allowed educations and medical occupations made advances while women who were not allowed educations or medical occupations didn’t?

The first medical school exclusively for women in the US was opened in 1850. Women could and did become doctors. It was a matter of money, not sex. A great number of men didn’t go to college in times past as well.Go look up the founding dates of any of the Ivy League women’s colleges. Most of them on the east coast sprung up in the mid to late 1800s. They were mostly founded by men with money who wanted women to get an education, those nasty patriarchs!

I rarely see women like you saying that nursing and teaching being female-dominated fields until what, the 90s, was discriminatory…

So much for the sisterhood.

It doesn’t exist, it’s one of the slickest lies women perpetrate. Much better to ditch the backstabbers, the narrow-minded, and the man-bashers and go your own way. You’ll have many fewer friends, and hear crickets chirp a lot, but with friends like that……it’s telling that in order to brush under the rug how nasty women really can be, and how locked into herd mentality they are, is the appearance in the media and the popularity of the word ‘frenemies’, female friends who are a PITA or just plain nasty but you keep them around because they have some benefit to you, or you don’t want to be cut off. What a bizarre idea! Life is way to short to put up with bitches, I instantly disassociate myself from toxic women, but it looks like being a member of the herd is too important for many.

but I think a higher number is better than a lower one, because it means an individual will have likely experienced a greater variety of sex, and be better able to meet their partner’s sexual needs.

Another thing feminists think is necessary. Your partner’s sexual needs will most likely be similar to many other men’s sexual needs……plenty of sex, frequent sex, you don’t have to be a circus act. Don’t believe those articles in Cosmo. Anything you need to learn you can learn from him, no? Why do women think that sex is so complicated that it’s a good idea to have it with lots of people to ‘learn’? Another smoke screen, because women can’t be honest. You’re liberated, why can’t you just say that you like sex and be done with it? ‘I’m practicing for my future husband’ just sounds so damned weird. If it’s your cup of tea, say so. What’s the big deal?

because more intelligent women are also more likely to have a positive attitude towards casual sex.

That’s not contradictory in any way…

What it boils down to is YOUR life choices and those of your similarly-thinking peers are ‘intelligent’ and those who do not call themselves feminists, and those who think that chastity or some degree of sexual restraint is a good idea are not. You’ve already linked feminism and a ‘positive attitude’ towards casual sex with intelligence in this thread alone.

I’ve noticed before that if I don’t have time to stay on an article on this site, and check it a few days later, there will be people thinking I left because I was scared or something.

You just came off as a snot…..there was a thinly-veiled ‘I have a LIFE’ tone to that post. Reread it yourself.

Christopher

Thank you for your textbook behavior of a mangina.

Don’t be selling me short as a misogynist, I’m a sociopathic misanthrope.

There once was an extremely well built, of the Wonder Woman variety, secretary at a former employer who married a scrawny little dude I knew for ages. The dude was about 5’4″ and 120lb, while she was 5’8″ and a solid 140lb in all the right places. I asked her why she went for a little dude and she (truthfully) replied that she thought she would be able to physically force her will on him. Recalling her hubby pounding the doo-doo out of guys who outweighed him by 1.5 to 2.5 times as much on several occaisions in the pits at dirt track(s) “back in the day”, I asked how that worked out for her. She replied that she attempted it…..once!

Equality? Yeah, right.

I don’t care about degrees, earnings or your attitude about Christianity, God made Man the head over the woman in the Garden of Eden as part of Eve’s punishment. That’s the way it is.

Man up and accept your role in society and in the family and stop watching so much Tomb Raider/Vampire Slayer/Kill Bill crap, or get a sex change.

BTW, my wife has the degrees and the earnings, and is quite intelligent. She just has bad taste in men.

Ah, VD day again.

Well, time to watch women lament about the man not sacrificing enough for them, expecting to be treated royally and never treating the man equally. watching ads which tell MEN to spend money on women and NO ads where women do ANYTHING for men and of course watching all the money you spend on gifts depreciate the next day when all the marked up VD crap is sold at 50-75% off.

Then again, I plan on wearing all black, which scares ladies on VD, reading Punisher and Deadpool comics, playing Final Fantasy Tactics and looping ‘Paint It Black’ as loud as possible.

As for getting ladies anything, why bother? If you need a day to blackmail, brainwash, nag, attack and force someone to ‘prove’ their love for you, you are not a lovable person, you are a slavemaster whipping your slave to do what you want. You can withhold affection, love, respect, caring, speaking and sex and no one calls you out on it…however if a man forgets the ‘sacred’ holiday, he is worthless as a man. More and more men are wising up and asking themselves ‘what’s in this for ME?’ and seeing nothing are acting accordingly.

A gift is supposed to be from the heart, needs no special day and no special reason. Expecting a gift on Feb. 14 shows you are just a lemming following your programming. There is NO love or respect in the gift, it’s just a sacrifice to avoid argument and nagging and the cold shoulder for weeks.

Ask yourself this, ladies…do you want to have the love of a man or be a prostitute that has to be paid in gifts and $$$ to keep you quiet and to spread your legs?

If you will only have sex because a man does something for you or buys you a gift, you know what you REALLY are.

All we need to know is how much for how long.
