Cill’s note #1: My 19 year old cousin Molly wanted to write this post. Although she is brilliant, words are not her strong suit. She asked me to take her draft and reword it, which I have done.
Here is the first thing:
Men are fairly accurate and realistic about their ratings in the SMP. They rate approximately 50% of women to be average or above. Women are inaccurate and unrealistic, judging a mere 20% of men to be average or above. A woman of average appeal thinks she competes for men within the top 20%. In a scale of 1 to 10, a woman of 5 thinks she’s on a par with a man of 8. Women are out of whack to the extent of 250% (50 / 20). That.Is.Huge. This phenomenon is so well known, it can be verified with a simple search on the internet.
…who only see you during the holidays and consistently ask if you have a significant other yet? Funny how they never ask in a casual manner, it’s always with a subtle side of judgment and slight disdain for your constant singlehood. They act as though your true value can only be in the confines of a marriage or at least an exclusive/committed relationship, rather than having value as an individual.
Fellow blogger MyAtheistLife posted a really good series of religious questions earlier today. Although a decent number of them were directed towards monotheists (and perhaps Christians in particular) I thought I’d give answering them a shot. The post’s original questions are in bold, my responses are all italicized. Continue reading Response To A Great Post By Myatheistlife→
Blurkel (who I encountered on Tarn’s blog) has very kindly written a post for this site. The quoted text is his post in its entirity, untouched by me. I’m going to put my comments in the comments, hope you do too.
Thank you very much Blurkel, much appreciated
Discussion has arisen recently on some sites as to whether married men can be MGTOW or not. I’m inclined to stand with the anti crowd. As I see it -and your opinion may well differ- a man who goes his own way doesn’t take anyone else along that path.
Married men by definition have dependents, and society expects that their needs will be met by these men no matter what. The dependents aren’t supposed to be left behind to fend for themselves. And yet, too often, they are. This makes society less accepting of once-married men reclaiming their lives. This is…
Or at least a lot of them would, if truly independent women weren’t so rare. It’s easy to talk the talk of being a “strong, independent womyn” but when it comes to walking the walk many women stumble and fall. Most don’t even know they’re doing it, but then are at a complete loss in the world of relationships.
The United Kingdom has a sordid history of failing to acknowledge and address sexual violence against men and boys. Many cases of sexual violence against males are not prosecuted under the rape statutes, including offenses against boys. Women cannot face rape charges under UK law. The National Rape Crisis Network excludes organizations at assist male victims. All those things works against efforts to help abused men and boys.
We got the check! It’s hard to believe — Vasalgel’s first foundation grant. Packard Foundation is the first foundation (other than little Parsemus Foundation, which has been carrying the weight for almost 5 years) to stand up and say men deserve reproductive rights too — and to put their money where their mouth is, to the tune of $50,000! It’ll help keep us afloat through manufacturing and testing — and we think if they like what they see in terms of how we handle this grant, they might get behind Vasalgel in a bigger way later.
Over on goingyourownway.com, a truly fantastic mgtow forum that you really should check out, is a post by a gentleman who goes by SecularScientist. In it, he discusses two female students, their conversation, and a follow-up conversation involving all three of them. Continue reading The Narcissism Of Happy Wife, Happy Life→
The type of logical thinking that shows why atheists and Pagans tend to get along better than atheists/Pagans and Christians do. It doesn’t matter to me if someone believes in the Lady and Lord or not…only that they are moral people who try to do good in the world.
There are people that do not understand my position on belief. Perhaps it is time to explain it again.
Atheism simply defined is, “Someone who LACKS BELIEF in a god or gods.” So as an atheist I would never claim to KNOW that there are no gods. In this context atheism is nothing more than the rejection of the proposition, “a god or god’s exist.” It is not the positive statement, “there is no god.”
As an atheist I agree completely. I further posit that the probability of a god is zero. Further, if a god exists and that god is like the description of the god of Abraham that god is not worthy of my desire, accolades, or worship. If there is a god that exists as described by deists it does not care what words I use nor who I sleep with and how. If a god exists…
