I’ll tell you why women are running out of men to marry

One of them made the eternal feminine complaint. “All men are useless these days,” she said. “Yeah,” said the other. “The trouble is that they haven’t risen to the challenge of feminism. They don’t understand that we need them to be more masculine, and instead they have just copped out.”…

It is a stunning fact — the biggest social revolution of our lifetime — that far more women than men are now receiving what is in theory an elite academic education. When I was at university 20 years ago, the figures were almost exactly the other way round, with the ratio 60:40 in favour of males. Far more female graduates are coming out of our universities than male graduates — and, in 30 years’ time, when these people reach the peak of their careers, the entire management structure of Britain will have been transformed and feminised.

God save England.

Obviously a neanderthal corner of my heart worries about some aspects of the coming feminisation. Will we all become even more namby-pamby, elf-n-safety-conscious, regulation-prone and generally incapable of beating the Australians at anything than we already are? Hmm?

Yes, you will.

And even if the feminist revolution is good and unstoppable (and it is both),

No, old chap. It is neither. (That’s “neether”, as we say on this side of the Pond.)

Since the emergence of our species, it has been a brutally sexist feature of romance that women on the whole — and I stress on the whole — will want to mate/procreate with men who are either on a par with themselves, or their superior, in socio-economic and intellectual attainment. A recent study shows that if a man’s IQ rises by 16 points, his chances of marrying increase by 35 per cent; if a woman’s IQ rises by 16 points, her chances of getting hitched decline by the same amount.

Now look at those university entrance figures again, feed in that basic human prejudice, and some recent social phenomena become intelligible. If you have a sudden surge in the number of highly educated women — more women than men — then it is not surprising that you have a fair few Bridget Jones-type characters who are having a tough job finding Mr Darcy. It is a gloomy truth that 40 per cent of female graduates born in 1970 are likely to enter their forties childless.

I have an idea. Stop indoctrinating young women that wage slavery is the path to happiness. Encourage them instead to do something useful and fulfilling with their lives, like raising children.

But the only long-term solution for the “uselessness” of young men, as complained of by my twentysomething colleagues, is to get serious with the education of males in primary schools. And if the Equal Opportunities Commission wants to say something sensible for a change, it should start campaigning for more male teachers.

I’m in favor of that!

    “The trouble is that they haven’t risen to the challenge of feminism. They don’t understand that we need them to be more masculine, and instead they have just copped out.”

    With this one statement, she is admitting Feminism’s foolishness. The problem lies, not with men’s lack of masculinity, but with women’s increase of it. Now that women are living and acting like men, normal men are now expected to act hyper-masculine? Yet another possible reason why women seem to adore thuggish types so fervently. However, were men to start practicing this hyper-masculinity, then Feminists would wail about “oppression” and “inequality” and would doggedly pursue it as well, losing what little femininity they have left and repeating an already destructive cycle of women trying to be like men. Faced with a reality in which they can’t win, more men are simply letting go of relationships, marriage, and women in general. It is a cycle that cannot be stopped unless more women learn to accept their natural inequalities and reject Feminism and men are encouraged to take the lead and supported when they do.

    Penis envy indeed….

    Wait, I thought “rising up to the challenge of feminism” meant men discarding the notion of masculinity and being more like women?

    I guess they mean adopt all the good qualities of both women and men, but that becomes a bit of a snag when virtually anything masculine can, and likely will, be spun by female behavior into something evil, wrong and oppressive.

    I was married for 18 years and with the one woman 23 years. I was a 'true believer' in marriage.

    Now I tell every young man I meet. Do not get married. Do not co-habit. Do not have children, especially 'accidentally'.

    The western wimmin can enjoy their vibrators and cats. I'll date the eastern ladies.

    The strange thing about all these sexism/feminism arguments on line is that all the people involved seem to have an attitude that society is in a dire state, which is not held by 99% of the population. Most people still fall in love, marry or don't marry, have kids or don't have kids, and are not bitter about the result. If their marriage breaks up, they find another person to date. I would also say that in my experience, the supposed drought of men is really a flood of incredibly fat women who don't want to admit that they would never be attractive in any condition of society. Non-fat women I know have no problem with a drought of men at any age, because they're still good-looking and interesting to talk to. And frankly, this bullshit about stupid women being preferable to men really baffles me. You can set up a study to prove anything that a lot of people already believe, but this is one that defies any man's experience of dating, which is that the women he doesn't want are insufferably boring and obtuse. Not insufferably smart and interesting. The thing is, the really fat men are on websites like this being bitter because the only women who want them are Thai prostitutes posing as wedding prospects. I mean, they might as well say that there's a drought of acceptable women. It's the same thing; they don't want to date the existing single women, while the existing single women don't want to date them.

    Lose the weight and start treating people well. There's no drought for us normal people at all. Only for people no one would want. Not a new development.

The world used to be flat remember, and you could be burned at the stake as a heretic for saying otherwise. Those who are wise know that feminism is a tool of the Illuminati to destroy our society and usher in a totalitarian communist police state that will make 1984 look like a picnic. Those who are more interested in Jordans tits don't.
