What It's Like To Be a Man

Yes, even the un-married only exist to generate money, and the motivation of that is to use it to woo women -because if you don't, you're a loser. It's really hard to get a girl as well, because of hypergamy. Women can get their pick of any man they'd like, really.
Men have a lot more to worry about in life. A woman can go from her parents house, to her husbands without having any real pressure to do anything with her life. They don't really have to worry about being homeless, being alone, being physically attacked. Yes, I know women these days seem to have a hysteria about rape, but that's extremely rare and not something they have to worry about in most situations. If you're a man from a city then you have to be open to the possibility that you could get into a fight every time you leave your house.
A homeless woman? Sure it happens, but who do you think is going to get more pity? There's just more options available to women. Alone? There's always at least one man who will look after her.

Also, there's no security for men. There's no job security, and there's no marriage security. Most women don't even want to get married -at least not until they're past child-bearing age and their looks are gone. If we work hard all our lives to woo that special woman, she could get bored and leave us for Chad -taking the kids with her and half of our stuff.

We don't have any authority. We can't be proper husbands, because we're all equal now and no one person can make decisions. If we disagree we just move on to a new partner. We can't be fathers because of the same reason. Men are 'too vulgar' to be parents. We're idiots who don't love enough, apparently. We can't be bosses in work-places, because they're now overrun with women, who prefer egalitarian structures. So we end up with 50-odd managers in a work place and nothing gets done.

It's hard even to come onto a woman these days, because you can just get labeled a creep or even worse a rapist.

It just feels like there's absolutely no purpose for us in today's society. There's no reason for us to exist. It's a horrible feeling and i honestly don't see the point in life most of the time. I'm not some fedora-tipping MRA or anything. I hate those guys, but I'm pretty pissed at my prospects as a young man. God is the only one that gets me through it.

I'm going to 2nd this!
