I just finished reading this and thought it was excellent and needed to be shared. I am in no way a feminist! Some might disagree with that statement but for me I just believe in the Founding principles of America and know that it doesn’t matter whether your female, male, black, white, tan or whatever, we can all make it in this world and we do not need to tear someone down and make them feel unwanted or irrelevant to make ourselves better. Feminism doesn’t mean empowerment anymore it means being a jerk to make yourself look better. The suffragettes of the early 20th century would be embarrassed by what feminism in America has become.
“My generation of boys is f**ked,” says Rupert, a young German video game enthusiast I’ve been getting to know over the past few months. “Marriage is dead. Divorce means you’re screwed for life. Women have given up on monogamy, which makes them uninteresting to us for any serious relationship or raising a family. That’s just the way it is. Even if we take the risk, chances are the kids won’t be ours. In France, we even have to pay for the kids a wife has through adulterous affairs.
“In school, boys are screwed over time and again. Schools are engineered for women. In the US, they force-feed boys Ritalin like Skittles to shut them up. And while girls are favoured to fulfil quotas, men are slipping into distant second place.
“Nobody in my generation believes they’re going to get a meaningful retirement. We have a third or a quarter of the wealth previous generations had, and everyone’s fleeing to higher education to stave off unemployment and poverty because there are no jobs.
“All that wouldn’t be so bad if we could at least dull the pain with girls. But we’re treated like paedophiles and potential rapists just for showing interest. My generation are the beautiful ones,” he sighs, referring to a 1960s experiment on mice that supposedly predicted a grim future for the human race.
