Let’s go back about 150 years. Back in that day, there were men who were without women. They were ranch hands or on cattle drives. However, if you were to have a little plot of land, and you were farming or raising livestock, a woman would come in very handy. Having children was a plus back then, because they would work right along with you at a very young age. Now if you found yourself in this lifestyle, you NEEDED a woman. It would take a day just to do the laundry. It would take hours to cook dinner. Things were not very easy for men or women back then. It was a tough life, but marriage was seen as a partnership.
The turn of the century brought “women’s suffrage” and they march for the right to vote. They also helped push prohibition. This was early feminism, yet a lot of it was overlooked because of the changing times, the industrial revolution, and the Great War was more in the minds of men.
During the “roaring twenties”, amazing inventions came to the households, like the refrigerator and washing machine. This made homemaking easier. Then World War 2 hit, and the men had to cross oceans to fight. This left a void in the workforce, only to be filled by women. So while “Rosie The Riveter” was the mascot of the women who had to sacrifice so much working 10 to 12 hours a day while the men were storming the beaches of Normandy or Iwo Jima, being killed, losing limbs, dying of hypothermia in The Battle Of The Bulge, etc.
WW2 was won, and the men came home. The women went back to their lives as homemakers. But there was an undercurrent the modern man of the 50’s couldn’t see. Women had it easier than ever, with machines in their houses that did most of their work for them, modern medicine curing some of the worst illnesses, and the children and husband is away at work and school most of the day. This became stressful to the modern woman. Men had an answer for this in the “Mother’s Little Helper” which was Valium. This helped them get through the day full of monotony. However, this is when we see women act like children. They deserve better, they deserve happiness, whether it be at the expense of their children or husband, it doesn’t matter.
The 1960’s come along and this is when it all hits the fan. Women are burning their bras, becoming militant against “the patriarchy”, and they refuse to belittle themselves to just taking care of children, and being housewives. Political movements pushing the ERA among other things change the landscape of this once great country. This is the beginning.
The 70’s and 80’s sees split up families, a rapid rise in single mothers, and the true rise of the family court system. This is when it is shown that men are needed for one thing, writing a monthly check. It is taught to males that we are not needed in a child’s life, in fact, we are toxic to children. We just need to mail a monthly check. Yet there is a rise of drug use among teenagers. With the lack of discipline and security from a father, these fatherless children look to something else to fill that void. The government and our society doesn’t know what is happening, why street gangs are on the rise, yet the answer is right under their noses.
The 90’s is prime for feminism, our first true First Lady Feminist is in the White House and she will most definitely be the first woman president one day herself. The original feminist of the 1960’s are now getting a bit older, and passing the torch on to the younger generation. As men, we still are not sure what to do. The movie Fight Club comes out in 1999, and it scares the women because it pretty much tells us men we don’t really need a woman, and it gets the gears turning in the heads of the modern man. Yet this is short lived, because 9/11 happens, and while women can still continue to live their lives, we men are asked to fight two wars. This is when my generation was shown what a woman can really do, for when a man spends a tour fighting in Iraq, then comes back to no home, no money, and divorce papers, we all know who the sacrificial gender is.
Facebook came out in mass in 2005, and the iPhone in 2008. This is when the selfie became so great. Now we have multi billion dollar companies that have based their success off of the narcissistic modern woman. I truly is all about them. They are wonderful creatures, getting unique tattoos, putting up quotes on their walls to try and fill the empty void they always feel, and taking 100 selfies just to find the one that doesn’t make them look fat so they can post it for the world to see.
Now we get MGTOW and GYOW and MRAs. What the modern woman is doing is quite unsustainable, and is just a house of cards (they know it), yet the independent man has been around since the beginning of time. From the Old Testament prophets like Elijah and Micah, to the New Testament great men like Paul, John, Matthew, and Timothy. Then move forward to men like Henry David Thoreau, Nikola Tesla, The Wright Brothers, and Beethoven.
What we are seeing now is women living an unsustainable life. The average THOT is only good for 3 things; sex, taking selfies, and social media.
What we are seeing in the modern independent man is something that has been proven successful for thousands of years. And we often find great things come from independent men. What great things will come from our generation?
