Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Women decry absent fathers, deadbeat dads, lack of male role models in modern families. Liberals don’t acknowledge that’s the cause of crime because a woman is just as good a man at everything, right?
They forget that the massive rise in broken homes is due to no fault divorce, which feminists demanded so they could escape unfulfilling marriages. It wasn’t men using their patriarchal male-dominated muscle who pushed that through in 1975. We had Women’s Lib then. I remember when it was invented. It was women who wanted to be able to get out, no strings attached, no excuses required. They pushed through no-fault divorce. And it’s been a disaster, the shape of which we’re only now realizing.
In the olden days, women knew that you didn’t get things ready made, you had to work them into shape. That went from food you grew, to clothes you made, to a man you would turn into a husband. A Marriage Prospect was someone you thought you could work on to become a finished product you could live with.
But modern women expect things to come prepackaged and disposable. Women say “I married a man that I wanted to be Prince Charming but he turned out to be Prince Charming’s stable hand, so I want to dump him and try something else.” They’re not willing to put in the effort. Maybe don’t even have the skills to put in the effort. And all of society has changed from telling them to put in the effort, to telling them to walk away.
Walking away from an unfulfilling marriage might make a woman feel better about herself, but it tells us nothing about how the kids will turn out. Not worth the effort? What does that say to a kid? How does it affect the kids outlook on relationships, willing to trust, commitment to long-term effort? Read Judith Wallerstein. She’s eye opening, sobering, depressing.
Which politician will speak Truth to Power and tell feminists “You were wrong and you made things worse. We’re leaving what sounds good and going back to what works.”
Among today’s “progressives”? Expect the “men are just sperm donors” line to just get worse until it can’t be sustained any more .
