    For balance I would say that the majority of females in the uk are having to be like men now I.e. earn your living with all that entails. Nowt to do with feminism for the majority of females.
    IMO corporations, banks and the lackey governments just latched onto the ideas of hardline feminists and thought......yeh yeh yeh.....get the women out to work too....more money for us!

    Respect to you for single parenting. It’s not easy!
    I’m not sure what masculinity or femininity means anymore. While I definitely feel that I’m a female I sense that I’m much tougher and more “masculine” than female acquaintances with partners. In fact I find all of the females I know personally who are in partnerships a bit pathetic. Whiners, whining on about how tough life is!
    Oh dear. I wonder how any of them I know would have coped alone!

    As usual, MSM trails DOSBODS by a year in their assessment of stories and finding the truth.

    I'm only winding you up.
    I wouldn't approach a woman like that anyway. Cause I know she wouldn't fucking look sideways at me.

    Yep. I know plenty of single Mums who have frankly battled hard to bring up their kids - I honestly do not know how thye do it - and have had to be both Mum & Dad to their kids, (Just as I know men who have also had to be both roles.), but those women I know have not lost their femininity and have generally kept their female shape.
    The ones I am referring to are just simply lazy IMPO. Many of them can't be bothered to even write a profile so the sense of entitlement reeking out from their profiles is one of ME, ME, ME, Lazy, Lazy, Lazy...

    Rightfully so. Provide for your kids and yourself. No-one else.

    I can fully understand. You're a great example of a female provider and not a pretend bloke, either mentally or physically like the podgy women @The Masked Tulip is referring to. I have similar life experience in that I have been raising my kids on my own for last 7 years (late teens now), and I've had to do cleaning, washing, cooking, helping daughter when her periods started, etc. I even hung out with the mums on coffee mornings and liaise with the mums on school issues. So a bunch of "female"/mother activities. I'm still very much a bloke, and more bloke than a lot of their husbands. Point I'm making, which I think we're agreed on, is that we don't have to take on gender traits in order to carry out traditional gender roles. However, many women seem to think it does so don't make an effort to be feminine, and this also applies to men in that "soyboys"/metrosexuals are effectively feminised men, who defer to masculanised (?) women. Result = no-one happy.

     There’s a very big difference from 3-9 on the Richter scale. But you know that anyway!

    Yes, we like that! For one weekend, anyway.
    Women are no better, male strippers aren't in demand for their intellectual conversation.

    I think @Economic Exile's point is true - I think women who spend years in office jobs, along with the back stabbing politics and stress of it all, end up less feminine as a result. Only way to cope in the environment.
    I wouldn't dare voice that opinion out loud of course
    And as for what @The Masked Tulip's point about them not trying - we've discussed this before; a massive percentage of women just don't seem to care. I'd put it at a higher percentage than men. And I think over the age of 35 or 40 the percentage of women that stop trying goes up again. I know loads of blokes who have worked hard and reached relatively high status jobs, various successful blokes that are between 5 and 20 years ahead of me - and their wives are for the most part all big fat messes. Even having husbands in the top 1% of earning power, doesn't seem to prompt them to try the salad.

    That's an interesting point. Reminds me of "ladette culture" back in the 90s with women drinking heavily and behaving like blokes. But why do women have to be like men in order to be "successful"? Why do they have to be masculine then? Why can't they do it in their own way?
    ETA: Completely agree it's just created more worker debt slaves.

    Happiness and boredom never go together. I just don't think you'd get bored working that hard 7 days a week, stopping only for church on a Sunday.

    Upvote because I believe the female is deluded.

    Email from a 55 year old - no kids, wants kids. This is increasingly common and, yes, I have mentioned this before on here. Some suggest that it means that a woman is open to a bloke with kids. I think it just means that they are deluded.

    I don't think there is a "might" about it - some of the forum members are probably already there.

    The old story....women can get it whenever they want, but many aren’t fussed....but blokes want it all the time and unfortunately struggle to score!

    LOL. Mrs Doyle!
    However in some of the multiple choice questions as usual I found that non of the choices were appropriate for me so I chose the nearest.
    Father Ted was so funny. They don’t make stuff like that anymore. Such a shame that the lead actor was struck down so young.

    I accept that charge to a degree, though it's more a stance of "I can afford a rare Ferrari so will instead drive a very ordinary car as I'm not jumping on that bandwagon"; a lot of much wealthier people than me do the same.  Zuckerberg, Buffet, and the IKEA founder all drove / drive ordinary cars.
    It's also a "green" (in a good sense rather than a virtue-signalling sense) motivation.  I mend my socks so wear them ?two years more than somebody who chucks them out at the first appearance of a hole.  So my sock purchases are a third of your average person meaning less environmental damage from producing three times as many socks and discarding them.
    I linked the R4 Your and Yours phone in which included amongst the callers a woman who on principle would buy nothing new barring underwear because she wanted to cause the minimum damage to the environment.
    It's an acceptance of the necessity of having material goods combined with a dislike of materialism.  I like having old things; especially if my repairing them means that they continue in use.
