What a white knight..How charming. Women should have "choices" and men responsibilities. The epitome of "women's liberation" isn't it. Choice to work, not to work, to pay on a date or not to pay, to have a the only choice to conceive and bear responsibility for unplanned pregnancy or not conceive, to divorce with no liability or reciprocal obligation, to have default parental rights, to not serve her country in any fashion through military Selective Service, to simply be valuable for the simple fact she exists while competing with and even disenfranchising men by social, political and even economic policy for what men are valued for...worker bees to enable female choices. Who is it that bears responsibility and consequences to enable these female choices? Guess who.
What liabilities, responsibilities, reciprocal obligation and accountability are women expected to have exactly?
I was just talking to someone about the church. Don't worry we all know that religion in outdated now right? I'm certainly not a member of a religious institution. Religion is founded on maintaining a social construct that no longer exists. Anyone who is familiar with the state of religious institutions has realized that women form the mass majority of church members now and men have left the church. If you search online you will see the church trying to figure out why and some are quite amusing in attempting to explain it. It is men's fault of course.
By responding with the mantra of "men need to man up and show some responsibility" for a societal structure we no longer have interest in maintaining, men run further away from the church. The church needs to ask itself what interest do men have left to contribute to maintaining something we have no vested interest in maintaining....an increasingly matriarchal social structure where men have no rights, no enfranchisement and thus no vested interest in contributing to it.
The church needs to realize what it is trying to maintain and enforce that has been taken from men not only by the weakened church but by government. These institutions were once the only thing that stood in between men and complete female domination. The only thing left at the disposal of government and the church now is coercion and shaming...and not enabling male enfranchisement. Male enfranchisement no longer exists. Men must ask, what are the rewards for sacrificing ourselves and enabling the choices of others?
Men are withdrawing from maintaining civilization itself. Increasingly the only people or duties we have vested interest in "manning up" to serving is ourselves.
