This? This right here? This is "Beta Nation" incarnate. This is what leftist ideals have turned the "men" of our society into.

You don't need to dismiss anything. But you can sure as hell stop worrying about it so damned much and focus on what might actually make you happy... I don't mean right now - I mean doing something, really setting out and doing something, that will make you happy when you look back on your life 20 years from now.

Because if you're still where you are at now in 20 years, you're not going to enjoy that hindsight.
i don't spend every waking moment worrying about stuff like this - i have a job i enjoy and a life that i'm trying to improve.

It would not be tolerated as acceptable.

Trousers "designed for women" are still trousers, which are a traditionally male piece of clothing. Regardless, they are not fundamentally different from trousers designed for men, other than perhaps in terms of cut. A woman wearing trousers and a jacket to work is normal at this point, despite the fact that it would've been abhorrent in as recent a decade as the seventies. Men, however, cannot acceptably wear so-called "women's" clothing to work, now can they?

Single childless young women tend to out earn men in metropolitan areas so finding a man that makes more money is going to become increasingly difficult.



Men are also more likely to be unemployed.

I'm bored, so...:

I believe that I recall someone on SoL once stating that they'd like to eliminate genders and sexes by genetically altering humanity so that everyone is a functional hermaphrodite and having everyone look androgynous.

If that person or, if I'm wrong about that person, someone with similar ideas were here, what would you say to that person?

Surely something that monumentally fucking stupid could only come from Eagan?

Regardless, what would I say to them? Fuck off, cunt.

Nah, wasn't Eagan. (Even if I knew who it was I wouldn't state the name, but it was definitely not him.)

It's also silly and living in denial, but sure, if THEY want to live like that? Whatever.

But forcing that onto the rest of us? Haha, no, get fucked. (them, not you)

If you want to change your gender, or not even have one, fine. That's perfectly fine. But for each group of men and women who aren't comfortable with gender, there are groups who are, or are even proud. We should have the freedom to be who we want, instead of converting people to one gender, both, or neither.

Yeah, nah.
Trousers being a traditionally male piece of clothing is a Western thing and was brought to us "fairly recently" in the Middle Ages. Women in South Asia have been wearing pants for thousands of years. And men have worn skirts and dresses for thousands of years in Europe.
Also, dress up a woman in baggies, a wifebeater and shave her head and everyone (men and women) will call her a lesbian. It's not like there are no double standards here.
I'm referring to contemporary western society at present, and our recent history, of course. Women could not wear trousers in the 17th, 18th, 19th, or early to mid 20th centuries in most of Europe and America.

Of course, elsewhere, men and women wore various different kinds of clothes, as I previously mentioned. That's not what I'm referring to.

Anyway, I do not think the extreme comparison of "a woman with a shaved head" is a good example. The outfit I dictated was relatively normal and business-friendly if worn by a woman, whereas walking around with a shaved head and whatever a "wifebeater" is is not usual work clothing for men.

The comparison I'm making is between the different "gendered" business attires.

The problem is that some people accept the concept gender as "normal", when it isn't, and privilege their pride in their gender over anyone else's genderlessness, which isn't appropriate.

The most important right we must win in this century is the right to be free from gender. The right to wear whatever clothing, regardless of sex. To do whatever, regardless of sex.
