Another Sign of the Times in the Age of Matriarchy


The Slump: It's a Guy Thing

They eat from the same dishes and sleep in the same beds, but they seem to be operating in two different economies. From last November through this April, American women aged 20 and up gained nearly 300,000 jobs, according to the household survey of the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). At the same time, American men lost nearly 700,000 jobs. You might even say American men are in recession, and American women are not.

What's going on? Simply put, men have the misfortune of being concentrated in the two sectors that are doing the worst: manufacturing and construction. Women are concentrated in sectors that are still growing, such as education and health care.
As the blue collar sector declines, the pink collar sector ascends. While the writer of the article poses various hypothetical guesses as to why this is happening, those of us that have unplugged form the Feminist Matrix understand EXACTLY what is going on.

The troubles for the American male worker, while exacerbated by the current slump, are hardly new. The manufacturing sector is in long-term decline, and construction goes through repeated booms and busts. Meanwhile women are graduating from college at higher rates than men.

Hmmmm...the ongoing, dialectical process of the feminization of higher education, the increased promulgation of the cultural zeitgeist that directs young women to focus on education and careers instead of forming families, and the normalization of misandry in the mainstream media has been going on for the past 30+ years.

The results of this social re-engineering are becoming more and more evident to those of us that recognize the truth. But the folks that remain oblivious cling to the delusion that we still live in a Patriarchal society oppressive to women.

Another reason politicians aren't making hay of the plight of males is that they are well aware that women are in no mood for it. Working-class and lower-middle-class women in particular, whether or not their men have jobs, are feeling economically stressed, says Bill McInturff, a pollster for Senator John McCain. He adds, "In focus groups they talk about how 'I'm taking care of my parents, his parents, buying groceries, taking kids to the doctor.' These women are tired."

See, never mind that men struggle with job loss and making ends meet to support their families, it's all about how the women feel.

And women are supposed to be the morally superior ones. YEAH RIGHT.

Part of being a moral being is having a concept of, and a dedication to,justice and COMPASSION. The article had a statistic that 75 percent of those making $100,000 dollars are men. Ok, but what the HELL does that have to do with the 95 percent of men who DON'T make that much money, don't even come close to it, and have actually lost their jobs? so ignore most of the men who will NEVER become rich because too many of those who ARE rich are men? WHAT LOGIC IS THAT? Let's not forget that most of the homeless are MEN.

HL,

This news is no surprise. WTF do women expect when all of SOCIETY has been remade in their image?! The schools, media, work, everything has been remade in their image-sheesh! And they STILL bitch about a patriarchy?! Oh, please...

And I just LOVE how these women complain! They don't want to hear how they're making out better than men-oh no. No, they have to work, cook, clean, etc.; guess they don't count the items on Hubby's 'honey-do' list like home repairs, mowing the lawn, fixing the car, and other heavy, dirty stuff, huh?

Haha. Seems women don't like being men after all.

It's funny.

Women who are always complaining that "women only make .75 for every 1.00 that men make" (it's actually .90 - .95 when you factor in hours worked per week, experience, education, who works hazardous jobs, etc) are having less and less to complain about.

But I'm sure they'll press on.
