I am a career woman, and it has been *my* choice to not marry until I reach my mid 30s, and meet a sensitive, intellegent, ambitious, handsome man with a great sense of humor.

I have noticed an utter lack of intellegence in the pool of men that I currently encounter, and that they seem quite afraid of my innate abilities and intellegence.

I am cancelling my subscription to Forbes based upon this hateful, horrible, and insensitive article.

Not to be rude, but I could not stop rolling on the floor and laughing at your post.

What makes you think that at 33 to 38 such a man would find you attractive when much younger women would do the job just fine.

Maybe you are hanging out at the wrong place, change your venues to where your types may be found and see how it goes.

Shows just how little intellectual development you have done or achieved.

amen to that. what is it with today’s totally dumb, lazy, brutish men? excuse me, do you ever read something besides the back of the new X-Box game you just bought? or watch something on tv other than the Man Show or college football? WHO could stay with these men if they knew they had the option to leave? seriously. To all you dumb boys out there, if you really want someone to stick with you, maybe you should start dating one another. because no educated woman will stay with your sorry a-s.

All…

If you don’t like uneducated, unintelligent men, don’t hang out with them (like… at bars, maybe?). Go to places where you’re more likely to meet intelligent, educated men (like… at classical-music and classical-jazz concerts? At evening classes at the local university?). There’s no shortage of men graduating from college, so they’re not all uneducated (I won’t comment on the relative intelligence of college-educated men versus the rest of the guys).

As far as XBox goes… I play XBox. With my 10yo son, for bonding time, ’cause it’s something he likes to do. My wife heartily approves, and we have a grand time. You might try learning an XBox game or two, and hanging out with the guys who play it, and finding out whether any of them are educated/interesting (I have no idea, myself).

But quit whining (sorry, but it does sound repetitive after all the times I’ve heard it from other women) about idiot men, get off the pot, and do something about finding someone you like. My brother-in-law, a substance abuse counselor, found his wife, a professional opera singer and music teacher, through an online service. I think he got lucky, but it could happen.

The reaction from the men is entirely typical.

Men want slaves to build up their fragile egos.

Well, bad news men, today’s woman is sassy, sarcastic, and independent. We grow even more attractive as we age unlike men. I plan to marry when I hit 35, and raise a healthy, empowered family where I am NOT the slave. I am the VP of HR in a major company, and I provide a very valuable and essential service, how many men can say the same?

Until I marry, I am free to do as I please, be as sexually adventurous as I please, and sad little men have no say in my life. Men are dispicable, illeterate creatures, thank god feminism has freed us from them.

That’s your opinion.

I don’t think anyone is expecting you to be a slave. And how does being sassy, sarcastic and independent makes you more attractive to someone that does not like those qualities?

Umm, how about the many men that have and do the same job you do.

By what you write, you seem to think that men’s irresponsibilities and ignorance are the power that they had over women.

You erroneously think that power is taken rather than given. Men only had the power over women that women were willing to give to them.

Good luck with your life, but by the looks of it you are in for a world of hurt. Change your attitude and you will be better off, you seem to be your worst enemy.

Cheers,

I pity you, that you think all men are like the ones you have met and judged.

And you’d be more persuasive, a bit, if you had spelled “despicable” and “illiterate” correctly.

The men posting here are obviously abusive, and frankly, I am outraged and I feel verbally raped.

I will meet the exception when I decide to do so, and he will be nothing like you, willing to do most or at least half of the child care and household duties while I pursue activities that are more important, and personally empowering.

I feel sorry for your wives, if you are fortunate enough to have a wife.

Your responses indicate nothing less than mental illness, and a violent urge to repress women from their newfound freedom.

In fact, the white men of our society are much all the same, which is why I rarely date them, much less considering marriage with one.

Enjoy your slaves, should you ever find a modern woman willing to become one.

My husband will enjoy a true equal partnership, which all REAL men truly seek in life in these modern times.

By now it should be obvious that empoweredwoman is most probably an MRA who is satirizing conventional feminism so as to expose the ridiculous illogic and gaping holes in its double standards.

Yes, verbally raped.

Thoughtless, insensitive posts by evil, ratlike, piggish men who should be put to death make women feel verbally raped.

Your responses have literally made me cry. I hope you are proud of yourselves.

I can only imagine what an MRA is, no doubt a sexually objectifying term.

Get used to empowered, outspoken women, men. We are your equals in every way.

We are loud, proud and IN YOUR FACE.

(except when they legalize the draft, in which case we will find irrational arguments to exclude women).

I’m shocked that you claim to be a VP in HR. Woe to the men in your company! (ambiguity intended) All of the HR managers I have known have been very careful to create an atmosphere of equal opportunity and respect. That can’t exist when you have an attitude that “men are dispicable, illeterate (sic) creatures, thank god feminism has freed us from them.” You have made sexist and racist comments on this board that go beyond a civil discussion, and you are a perfect example of why sexism and racism is perpetuated through these “modern times”. Why can’t people dispose of their ethnic and gender filters and see the trees instead of the forest?

I can’t imagine what must have happened in your background to make you so hateful, but I really hope you can find a way to deal with it so you can stop being hurtful to others, and yourself.

Too bad. If your sensibilities cannot handle adult debate, then find a forum that your delicate constitution can handle.

You’re not empowered. You’re just a jerk who can’t handle being disagreed with.
