    Interesting commentary. What do you think?

  2. Ame says:

    i’m w/ Eimi … what conclusions has your “chewing on” produced?

  3. singlextianman says:

    I agree with a good deal of it.

  4. The Librarian says:

    I find it interesting that so many commentators here (in the US) conflate liberalism and socialism.

    The issue I have with the female sexuality portion of the essay is that he makes the same assumptions that some of the MRA/MGTOW writers make, and that is that all women are the same and working our wiles from the identical batch of motivational hormones. We really aren’t, any more than all men are the same.

    Well spoken.

    @The Librarian

    One of the problems in writing brief posts is that have to assume that reader has a common sense understanding of the subject matter. For instance, the statement, men have higher sex drives that women is not true for all men but is true as a generalisation: And generalisations permit exceptions.

    Men and women are fundamentally different, even beyond the biologically obvious. The failure to acknowledge this is the same intellectual error of the militant feminists; namely that gender identity is a social construct. The feminists assume that men and women share the same processors but have been programmed differently by society. The traditionalist view is that men and women have different processors.

    A lot of the Game crowd overdo it a bit, but that should not distract from what they are asserting: That men and women are different.

    Slumlord a.k.a The Social Pathologist.

    I certainly agree with Slumlord in that men and women are fundamentally different, and as a woman with a wonderful man in my life, as well as a beloved brother and father, and good friends like this blog host, I heartily say “Vive la difference!” If you read my earlier comment, I believe I made that point, but perhaps I could have made myself clearer. What I disagree with, and what I read on some of the MRA/MGTOW blogs and comments is the notion that ALL women are ALL the same with IDENTICAL (evil and skanky) motivations for everything we say and do. That, of course, is piffle, just as is the notion put about by the feminist movement that ALL men are the ALL the same with IDENTICAL (evil and predatory) motivations for everything they say and do. The essay’s author has dressed up his language in the essay with scholarly language, but the message sounded pretty much like anything I’d read on MarkyMark’s blog.
