Son, Don’t Marry a Feminist

This article was originally published at PJ Media.

Dear American Men,

If I had a dollar for every email or comment I’ve received from you about what has happened between the sexes over the past 40 years and how it has affected your life, I could retire.

Okay, that’s a bit of a stretch. But it is not a stretch to say that since I began writing about America’s gender war, the number of men I’ve heard from has far exceededthe number of women. You have a lot to say on the subject, and very few outlets to do so. When you do try to share your thoughts on sex and gender, you’re branded a misogynist.

As a woman, I want you to know I hear you. I get it. And it’s wrong.

Because of your stories that now crowd my computer, I feel I have great insight as to what’s going on inside the mind of the modern man. I also have a 14-year-old son who I worry will face the same struggles you have. Out of deference to you and the stories you’ve shared, and because I too have been on the receiving end of feminist vitriol, I wanted you to know what I plan to tell my son.

    Suzanne, your article recognizes a serious problem, but fails to see its breadth and depth. Marriage (to any kind of woman whether feminist, traditional, or other variant) and fathering children are too risky for men. So called traditionalist women are wrecking men in divorce court as much as feminist women. Men are going to avoid and opt out of anything resembling family life under the current circumstances where there is over an one-third chance that a woman will divorce a man, take the children, marginalize him out of a child’s life, and (with state-sponsored tyranny) extort him to financial ruin by coercing child support from him far beyond the minimum needs of a child. The suicide rate of divorced men is an epidemic, but silence prevails.

    Even if society and the law rectified injustice to embrace Equal Parenting overnight, the irreparable damage has been done, and the momentum is too strong to course correct from the catastrophic demographic bomb to western civilization. The growing MGTOW backlash in the U.S., Europe, Aussie, and elsewhere is following the path of “herbivore” men in Japan, who opted out of the unrealistic expectations and demands of men. No marriage, children, or even sex. Japan is in a negative population spiral from which it will not recover.

    Again, you seem to espouse a very negative, dismal view of both men and women. Myself, my sisters, my daughters, other female friends, relatives and acquaintances don’t seem to have problems finding good men, nor do our sons, brothers, male friends and acquaintances seem to be unable to find good women. Perhaps, as the song goes, you’re looking for love in all the wrong places? Or perhaps your definition of goodness and strength and self-sufficiency is way off.

      You should read Suzanne’s work to see that her “goodness and strength and self-sufficiency” is universal and profound.

      Your take on today’s situation, on the other hand, is very simplistic, and not fact-based. Claims of rape culture, if you follow anything that’s happening in the country, pay inequality, single motherhood, and divorce rates are clear indications that Suzanne’s message is right on the money.

      People ARE struggling to find a good person, and the onslaught of feminist theories and brainwashing is not helping.

    I like the article/message it sends. I was at a victim advocacy conference and the concept if misandry was perpetuated and I only went to it to get a certificate to polish my resume with. So my purpose was purely professional. I don’t have an interest in victim advocacy anymore. I have a profound new respect for defense attorneys. But the experience was alarming. almost all the women there blamed men for everything and only 1 thanked the men interested in victim advocacy for being present. wether she was sincere or not I have no idea and I don’t care. having said all that, the fact that you felt a need to type this article is alarming in a cultural sense because it tells us where our culture has gone. I don’t believe in getting married like I used to. The concept of being single is “liberating” to use a feminist cliche. If I am being made aware in the conference that I am a disposable utility or not needed, then career is more important for me as a man to focus on. I have nothing against women. But when I am around them, now I walk on egg shells. I wonder if one of them has been mentored by Anita Hill.
