I am genuinely hurt that you freely insult and dismiss thoughts I spent a long time on. For as much as you talk about love, you always seem so ready to write other people off and so ready to hurt them. I don't understand.
How do you get this^ from this:
I just feel like this so much when I try to read your post.
I am just stating how I'm feeling inside myself when I read your post. You could infer any number of things other than you did from that.

The more one loves God, the more it is that having nothing in the world means everything, and the less one loves God, the more it is that having everything in the world means nothing.
Do not resist an evil person, but to him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer also the other. ~Matthew 5:39
I wonder how many of the evils this thread associates exclusively with men would exist without women to provoke them. Without women to fight over, men alone might create a society where everyone is free to watch football and burp free of the pressure to exert dominance and attract females.
Why we gotta have so many wimminz?

For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.
Men are "empowered" more than women, and given a general perception of greater competence in all but a few areas of standard human life (where women are instead empowered more), and as such "more" is expected of them in general. This means men aren't supported or cared for as much, but are pushed forward psychologically and held back less as a consequence. A homeless man will often be blamed more for his state, and given less sympathy, but as a consequence given more agency, than a homeless woman, where fault will often be put elsewhere more easily. The same goes for positive states/achievements (it's a similar, and more extreme case, with adults and children, where adults are given an enormous amount of agency compared to children, but with much better reason, and as such adults are given a lot less support and sympathy, and receive more blame than children).
As women are empowered more, and thus coddled less, they begin to show so-called "male behaviors" more, such as cheating, aggression and violence. As whilst there may be inherent gender differences (this is not equivalent to genetic differences, and are more difficult to isolate), a lot of these behaviors are the result of/catalyzed by being in a position of power, and more significantly the perception of having power (empowerment).
Thus men have had much more physical and psychological opportunity to cause various forms of damage (and the opposite), but if the above is true women will cause similar damage as they are treated more and more equally to men (judged purely by ability, with no emphasis placed on gender prior, being the standard measure of equality in this context). Whilst the conclusion being true does not prove the reasoning, evidence suggests the conclusion is true (women are becoming more violent, aggressive and less risk averse as social power is given to them, isolated from the mirrored causation which is also true).
This all supposedly leads to men helping and hurting more, even today, because the stretch out and try to achieve more, and are belittled less for doing so by those who can give them power to do it.
This perception is ridiculously skewed. Women can hurt men just as easily, and they could say the same thing, "all we need women is to make babies, we can run the world." You like women better, and maybe somehow meet a lot of jerky men, but that is in no way representative of the general population. Men deserve to be here just as much as we do.
Then I started realizing just how worthless men can be. More so than women. Think about it. Men cause the wars. Men cause the domestic violence. Men perpetrate the sex crimes, and most crime in general. Men are most likely to be child abusers. Men are still more likely to cheat (you know it's true). Men are not as able to take care of children AND work like women can.Men are less likely to be whiny martyrs.
