katrinaI feel like I agree with you but I'm not entirely sure what you're getting at.
I think american kids in general are raised in a way that engenders a feeling that nobody has a right to say anything that hurts their feelings.
reality can be harsh. But when everybody is on the same page of reality the society becomes much more efficient, and the more efficient a society is, the higher quality of life gets extended to the most ppl.
sorry i feel like im answering tangents with more tangents.
I guess you could say the kind of american kids who think “how dare trump say the things he says” are incredibly spoiled and overly sheltered from reality.
as far as this thread goes, i would say that the fact liz swaney actually exists shows that there is something wrong with the cultural way female americans are raised.
there is no such thing as a liz swaney of the mens competitions. If there was, i would be the first
person to admit there was a problem with the way we are raising males in america.
both boys and girls cultures in america are problematic in my opinion, but to me its clear that feminism at some point in the past cornered the market on innocence and has yet to let go of it.
You see the righteousness of the female perspective all over the left:
-all sex is rape by the male
- everybody on the left saying we have “toxic masculinity” that we need to address
-ergo, natural boys behavior is degenerate
-ergo, natural female behavior is noble
-competitiveness is evil
also it seems the institution of marriage is a legal power/money grab to make up for the fact that on avg men tackle career life with more ambition and more competitiveness, probably due to testosterone.
if you are a faithful wife who does not leave their faithful husband, then yes, you deserve to be showered in the wealth your husband provides even if all you do is cook and drive the kids to school.
but if marriage was a ploy to grab financial assets, then no i dont believe you deserve 1,000,000 $ a yr to cook and drive the kids to school.
and yes i know many women are very driven and just as career hungry as men, but men are the breadwinners more often than women are, in pretty much every society and culture on earth.
maybe one day the rates will even out. Maybe they wont.
im just saying that the divorce settlement catastrophe that many millions of men are victims of seems to me to be a loophole to even up the wealth status between men and women in a country where men happen to be the breadwinners more often than not.
im not saying “it should be that way”
im just saying that at the moment this is what the avgs look like.
