Men – take heart

For all of you who are rallying to form a new group to counteract all of damage that has been done, take heart that things are changing. NOW’s membership has been on the decline for years, the NY Times recently had an article on the uptick in women with advanced degrees who have been choosing to stay home with the kids, and if you want to read issues by level headed women, check out the Independent Women’s Forum at http://www.iwf.org. While you might not agree with everything they have to say, they are big advocates of father’s rights in all aspects of their children’s lives. Best of luck to everyone out there, whatever path you choose (marriage or not).

Significantly, isn’t the NYT also letting go 200 or so employees because their readership is dwindling (probably due to their overtly liberal bias)?

Please tell me that Maureen Dowd is among the ones getting the boot.

Hey look – Forbes reported it

A few more:

http://www.editorsweblog.org/print_newspapers//2006/07/new_york_times_cuts_jobs_shrinks_page_si.php
etc.

Maureen is unfortunately one of their biggest money makers. After all, she caters to a wide audience of disgruntled, bitter and lonely career women who are still holding out for prince charming.

Yeah, I see any level of feminism as a problem. Although I do like the idea of true equality in the sense of no more alimony and child support. A man can finally rest in peace in his own house.

Get this in countries where the laws are set up that you leave a marriage with what you can into it with. The divorce rate is 5%. A very healthy place to live, low crime, warm people.

Women have been proving for the last 30 years that men have been right for the last 30 centuries!

That’s interesting. In America in 1960, the divorce rate was 5% and it was a healthy place to live with low crime and warm people.

Ms. Steinem says differently:

“Steinem said she sees hope, however, in recent public opinion polls in the United States that indicate young women there are generally becoming more feminist.”

That’s a rather scary article.
Practically ruined what had been an otherwise good day.

The problem with IWF, and I actually kind of like them as well as iFeminists who have a similar bent:  The tone seems condescending at times since it seems really nothing more than a bunch of women arguing over how men should best be managed.  Male input is ancillary.
