Talk about desperation. How do Feminists attempt to combat the marriage strike and IMBRA? With propaganda, of course. The gig is up.
Feminist = Misandry

Feminism And Romance Go Hand In Hand

Science Daily — Contrary to popular opinion, feminism and romance are not incompatible and feminism may actually improve the quality of heterosexual relationships, according to Laurie Rudman and Julie Phelan, from Rutgers University in the US. Their study* also shows that unflattering feminist stereotypes, that tend to stigmatize feminists as unattractive and sexually unappealing, are unsupported.

It is generally perceived that feminism and romance are in direct conflict. Rudman and Phelan’s work challenges this perception. They carried out both a laboratory survey of 242 American undergraduates and an online survey including 289 older adults, more likely to have had longer relationships and greater life experience. They looked at men’s and women’s perception of their own feminism and its link to relationship health, measured by a combination of overall relationship quality, agreement about gender equality, relationship stability and sexual satisfaction.

They found that having a feminist partner was linked to healthier heterosexual relationships for women. Men with feminist partners also reported both more stable relationships and greater sexual satisfaction. According to these results, feminism does not predict poor romantic relationships, in fact quite the opposite.

The authors also tested the validity of feminist stereotypical beliefs amongst their two samples, based on the hypothesis that if feminist stereotypes are accurate, then feminist women should be more likely to report themselves as being single, lesbian, or sexually unattractive, compared with non-feminist women.

Rudman and Phelan found no support for this hypothesis amongst their study participants. In fact, feminist women were more likely to be in a heterosexual romantic relationship than non-feminist women. The authors conclude that feminist stereotypes appear to be inaccurate, and therefore their unfavorable implications for relationships are also likely to be unfounded.

if some of the participants in the survey were online, how are we to determine which are “sexually attractive” and which ones aren’t ? a 400 lb mexican could easily take the survey and pass himself or herself off as a playboy model. OH I GET IT ! they let audience members on the OPRAH SHOW determine which ones are attractive. this might work in movies or fantasy islands, but not in the real world. pseudoscience from a bunch of pseudomales. get a real job Rudman and Phelan and get back into the kitchen.

And the Feminist Propaganda Continues ….

The two researchers for the cited study are … FEMINISTS!

Don’t fall for this BS guys!

Can feminism help your love life?

If the words of some of our more, er, enthusiastic commenters are to be believed, women who identify themselves as feminists must have pretty crappy romantic lives. I mean, aren’t we all ugly, unshaven man-haters, the sorts of women who would spit on a guy if he so much as opened a door for us?

The simple response to that question would just be “No.” But today, dear readers, I can actually offer you scientific proof that not all self-proclaimed feminists are lonely, man-hating trolls! A study that’s to be published in Springer’s Sex Roles says that “feminism may actually improve the quality of heterosexual relationships,” according to this press release. They’ve got to be kidding, right?

Nope. Rutgers researchers Laurie Rudman and Julie Phelan surveyed 242 American undergraduates and 289 older adults and looked at men’s and women’s “perception of their own feminism and its link to relationship health, measured by a combination of overall relationship quality, agreement about gender equality, relationship stability and sexual satisfaction” (to quote the press release). And guess what they found? Women who said their guys had feminist beliefs had “healthier” relationships. Men who had feminist partners reported “more stable relationships and greater sexual satisfaction.”

I know what you’re thinking: How can a man report sexual satisfaction with an ugly, man-hating lesbian? To answer this question, Rudman and Phelan decided to examine stereotypes of feminists, too, to see how well they matched up with reality. Were the stereotypes to be true, Rudman and Phelan asserted that feminists would be more likely to report themselves as being single, lesbian or sexually unattractive. But guess what? They didn’t. In fact, women describing themselves as feminists were actually more likely to report being in heterosexual relationships than those who didn’t identify with the “f” word.

So it looks like we’ve got it all wrong, folks. Feminists don’t actually hate men — they just have a sense of self-worth and a desire for equality in their relationships. When the heterosexual ones are paired up with guys who also believe that women and men are equal, their relationships work better. Who’d have thunk. Let’s hope that Rudman and Phelan can help answer other pressing questions, like whether feminists really do buy bras just to burn them, and whether these feminist-loving men are actually gay.
