…no matter what you say or do.

You feminists should go find yourselves a good wife.

We prefer real women.

Not career women.

We don’t care what you think.

We don’t care what you do.

We wish you career women would go your own way.

There are far better women in places outside of the USA.

Your competition is overwhelming you.

What makes you think we want you anyway?

We decided long ago that we would rather remain single than live under the thumb of men like you.

Foriegn women are using you for a greencard…and so that their daughters can have a career and not be forced to live a life of babies and servitude

If you like that, then have fun. I love the idea of giving foreign women a chance at the American Dream.

Of course we not only don’t have to, we have no reason to marry these worthless “modern” women.

Once our society falls back a few steps (and it is heading that way fast), and women are 100% dependent on men again, I wonder how these “modern” women will respond.

I will get a good chuckle out of it, and maybe leave them a buck in their coffee cup, with their eyes begging me to do more for them.

Worthless twits.

You are only viewing this from your own perspective.  You are married, so you don’t care that these men don’t want a career woman.  Well, your anecdote does not collectivise to a proof.  All of the other women who aren’t married do have to deal with the choices of these men, and at last count 22% of single men 25-34 have ZERO interest in getting married, EVER.  That’s about 2.5 million men.

Then why are so many women outraged by this article? Noer isn’t attacking career women. He’s just advising men what group of women to avoid when we are looking to get married. Its the EXACT same thing as an article aimed at women telling them to avoid bad boys because they make bad husbands. Do you hear bad boys complaining about it? no. I’ll tell you why women are complaining – its because marriage is a major accomplishment for many women. They have been dreaming about it since they were little girls. And ultimately, men are the decision makers when it comes to marriage because they propose to women. So Noer is telling men to eliminate the career women right from the start. Essentially not giving them an opportunity, and this is why they are so upset, and rightfully so. But they cannot blame men for exercising their free right to choose. They can only blame the ideology that sold them the empty promise that they could have it all.

Funny thing, I thought all the uproar here was over EXACTLY that issue. If women are so ok with it, why has this forum raged on for days, why did women force Forbes to publish a counterpoint, why have so many women threatened to cancel their subscriptions, why did they demand and get an apology, and why are they so offended by the whole thing?

When something doesn’t matter to me at all, I certainly don’t spend a lot of time posting on discussion boards about it.

Women have been telling us for years that they didn’t need us a whole lot more than we didn’t need them. Ok, grrls, you win! You are right, you don’t need us more than we don’t need you.

Now, for god’s sake will you just go somewhere else to not need us and STFU about it?

I’ll tell you why I am outraged – because I am labeled “bad mother” automatically for being a career woman. My daughter is my highest virtue and I sacrificed (I should not use this word because I did it gladly) tremendously for her and I will fight anyone who tries to take away her dreams and opportunities,

Then you should truly appreciate the article.

If what you state is true, then your posts on this board should read something like: “I completely agree with you, Noer. Keep up the good work.”

But you object to it, because men are being advised to avoid you, and clearly that’s a good idea in your case.

You should support men not marrying you. After all, you ARE independent.

To Reply to Leera: You missed the point. I DO have a husband, and he wasn’t hard to find, and I was never short of offers. In fact, I broke more than a couple of hearts when I said “yes”. And I am sure I fit into what you would term a “career woman”. And my friends who are single are not short of dates either, and most of these men are interested in serious, commited relationships. That women are desperate for *husbands* now that *men have woken up* is coming out of nowhere.

To Khan: I’m sure some women overreacted to this article. I mean, seriously girls, get a grip, this nonsense won’t ever completely go away. Personally, I just found it 63 kinds of stupid. The statistics were overblown and misrepresented, and no serious effort went into asking *why* the statistics revealed what it did. I was a bit surprised that a fairly respectable publication such as Forbes published it, I’ve seen better material in FHM and Maxim. Should it have been pulled? No. Should the counter arguement been placed next to it. I think counter arguements are a good tool, but this particular one sucked as bad as the origional article.

As to WHY some people are upset at the article. It was antagonistic and one could easily call into question to the authors motives, especially considering how he manipulated the data. But honestly I think the best reaction would have been to just ignore the stupid thing. But the discussion on this board was interesting, so I thought I’d join in.

Sweetheart, who is trying to take away your daughter’s rights?  She has the same rights as men and then some.  Some examples would be nice.
