#4 Whoops — I meant carry on. PIMF!!

Clearly graciousness and literacy are not linked traits.

#6 "Burnout" is an official medical diagnosis, according to the World Health Organization.

Interesting word, especially coming from medical experts. Implicit is exhaustion; annihilation of internal resources; unfit and unable to continue functioning...

How many of these women are single I wonder. A single lady would have more troubles than someone with a steady companion. Men and women are really no different in that regard. You have someone to look forward to seeing, someone to relax your heartbeat with their voice - you get by.

All this stress is not because of work or demands of society, those were always there. It's because of the absence of love. What passes for love in most career conscious people is a plastic conformity to accommodate vanities of a sexual partner at best, and grudging territoriality with wanton adultery at worst.

In the absence of love, any existence is a chore.

#7 49 percent of women said that a "work-life balance is a myth"

The other 51 percent are suffering from denial. Their genetic blueprint does not generally include prolonged 'hunter-gatherer' tasks. It denies biological imperatives. The "work-life myth" began some 100 years ago. It continues to be a popular myth and has formed the basis of gender confusion and other dysfunctions.

#9 Feminism has plenty of villains, and most of their fellow feminists don't condemn them, which hypocrisy is not lost on anti-feminists. It's one of the reasons we're anti-feminists. You *created* us, just like a Batman villain. Embarassingly, I was pro-feminist when I was a teen and early twenties. Worst decision of my life. I respected the shit out of women. I didn't want them to feel uncomfortable around me. Women repaid me by letting me keep my virginity. Can you imagine being in a room full of college students, drinking and doing drugs and laughing together, and being the only one who didn't know what sex was like? It was horribly humiliating, again and again. I felt so worthless I wanted to kill myself. And it was all because I listened to feminists.

"No woman should be authorized to stay at home to raise her children...because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one."
-- French feminist Simone de Beauvoir, who groomed high school girls for Jean-Paul Sartre to sexually abuse

Who told you the other males weren't the same?

#11 Besoeker, IMO it's 50% - I know some good scientists/mathematicians and some good STEM teachers who are women (they just don't seem to be able to get the positions nowadays). And I assume it's the same for business, military, police, etc... And, of course, there are always an AOC or two who're too dumb to know they're making hash of their work.

#12 Gee, before the femnazi started their campaign to end Western Civilization did they ever take a look at men to see how many of them were stressed and burned out or did they just confined themselves to the 'successful' strata they envied?

#13 Well, P2k, according to studies I've seen recently there is a decided dearth of "good" men, at least for certain definitions of good. The used definition is basically confined to that "successful" strata. So, no they never took a look at men in such a way.

#16 "work-life balance is a myth"

No it isn’t. It’s just that one has to choose what to give up, because no one, male or female, can have it all. My mother, a brilliant occupational therapist (a branch of physical therapy concentrating on fine motor skills rather than gross motor skills, ie. use of fingers and hands rather than arms and legs), chose career and children, giving up social life and formal regular exercise. Having watched her, I ended up choosing children, social life, and exercise, giving up career. And Mr. Wife concentrated on career, leaving me to manage the family, home front, and much of our social life until I got sick, at which point we both concentrated on making sure the children and home front were handled — me by getting a cleaning lady and stocking up on frozen foods instead of cooking, he by cutting back on the work front and giving up pushing for the next promotion.

Can you imagine being in a room full of college students, drinking and doing drugs and laughing together, and being the only one who didn't know what sex was like?

I’m sorry your youth was blighted by believing the liars among your acquaintance, Herb. I was a college girl, back in the wild late 1970s, and I guarantee that even at graduation at least a quarter of those college students had never got past second base.

As it happens, my mother’s master’s thesis and first dissertation topics were around the subject of health and sex education around the world, so I was surrounded by the subject throughout my childhood. Truly, Herb, you were lied to by the advertising industry, the fiction and non-fiction publishing industry, and a great many boasting drunkards. And really, those Penthouse Letters were mostly invented out of whole cloth, thank goodness. not things everyone but you were doing. I mean ugh! If lots of people were really doing that, an entire generation of heterosexual men would be dead of AIDS and everything else, and their womenfolk along with them.

#18 Wasn't into fornication and adultery as a young man for religious reasons. Openly proud of it. Reference - Psalm 18:2

(especially after seeing diseased acquaintances and wrecked homes all around.)

#19 New state, new city. Homeroom, first day of HS (for me, that is; I was late for the term due to bureaucratic screw-up). Kid in front of me twisted around, jumped out of his seat, and addressed me, ghetto loud and ghetto clear: "My Name, you had [anatomy]?" And there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. I wasn't scared, just petrified. If he'd done something comprehensible like attack me, I could've coped. As it was, I just sat there staring a beseeching stare meant to convey, "Dude, what the hell is wrong with you?" To my credit, I don't think I actually gaped, and it didn't occur to me to talk shit about such a monumentally serious matter, so I just sat there hoping he'd change the subject or go away. We repeated the exchange two or three more times, word for word and look for look. Eventually he lost interest, the clock started ticking again, and other hijinks ensued. But I guess the moment made an impression.

#20 Decades later, I stumbled across a story about his dad (who turned out to be a minor public figure and major rascal) losing an appeal or going to jail or something, and googled my old pal. Drug case in another state. Suggestion of previous trouble. Some prison. Now, this kid wasn't the first "minority" in the school or anything -- far from it -- and his "minority" was riding pretty high then, and moreso since. He undoubtedly was, as I assumed at the time, better connected, more socially adroit, and thicker-skinned than me, but I can't help wondering... There he was, clear across town from where he'd grown up, at least as out of his element as I was. Being a sociable person, he rolled out a perfectly ordinary conversational gambit... only to be dealt the cut direct by a big weird white boy. Shame, anger, self-destructive impulses ensue. Could that fatal moment have been the beginning of his downhill slide? Okay, no. Duh. But I wish I'd handled it better. "Hell, yes! I got more tail than a g-dd-mn pet shop! Course it's mostly from your sister and your momma. Yeah, they say they like me much better than you." And so forth. Or maybe not. Probably would've wound up in a crackhouse myself.
