Manosphere and marriage

Athol, on fire:

So much written in the Manosphere is anti-women and anti-marriage that I’m starting to feel a little worn down just reading it all. I do understand the risks in getting married, but the truth of the matter is that I am quite thankful for my marriage and most definitely thankful for Jennifer.

I couldn’t agree more.

As I understand it, the heart of the Manosphere’s critique of modern society is that it has undermined marriage and womanhood (or femininity, perhaps more accurately). If the goal of the critique isn’t to restore marriage and femininity, I don’t understand what the Manosphere stands for.

Thus, those of us that write on the subject should be careful to walk the line between out-right hostility and criticism.

    I’m often reminded of a scene from an episode of “Family Guy” in which an alternate future, one in which Peter and Quagmire swore off women, is briefly shown. Peter and Quagmire are sitting in obvious luxury watching their piles of money grow. One says, “Aren’t you glad we gave up women.” The other agrees. Then Peter says, “Well, I’m going to warm up a bagel and have sex with it.” Quagmire responds, “The butter is in the fridge.”

    It’s all well and good to point out the flaws of feminism or the trapdoors it can put in front of married men, but if the goal becomes nothing more than piles of money and bagel sex, then count me out. Plus, I do actually like my wife.
