About 40 years ago, a few women
were allowed to become so out of control with their
mental illness and megalomania, that they declared
men and maleness in general to be "broken"
and called upon women in general to "fix"
them. Of course, we all know that there is nothing
women like more than fixing men, so millions of women
enthusiastically signed on.
The problem was that these women didn't know jack
shit about what maleness was about or what men or
men's world was really like - they simply declared
men to be defective females and set about changing
males into females, and coincidentally changing
females into males.
Just like any Marxists, no matter how many times
their grand experiments failed, they blamed the
victims of those experiments instead of their own
"What happened to men" is women pushed
other men and maleness out of the lives of males, but
did not get the results they were expecting.
As women took on more and more masculine traits, it
really should not surprise anyone that their
subconscious still forced them to seek out men who
were more masculine than they were, so in order to
pick up chicks males adapted by assuming a totally
stereotyped "hyper-masculine" persona.
And, it worked. The more a male lived up to the
stereotype of the worthless hyper-masculine male, the
more short-term success he had with women. The more a
man fought it and tried to live up to a more classic
male model of rational honor, the more he got
ignored, insulted, and screwed over by women.
A huge percentage of the men you deal with were
raised by single moms who are clueless about maleness
- they only know what they want. So, instead of
seeing their sons as real human beings, they
attempted to raise them to be projections of mom's
fantasies. Up until puberty, these boys attempted to
make mom happy by being exactly what she wanted him
to be, the less like his worthless father, the
However, when puberty hits, and the reality that
nature will always out and nurture don't mean shit
starts to become apparent, these square pegs which
have been forced into round holes begin to revolt.
The men you are encountering today are ones raised
essentially entirely by women. Either mom dumped dad
because he wasn't paying her enough attention, and
not making her feel special enough, or dad was simply
away breaking his back 60-70 or more hours per week
trying to keep up with cupcake's cancerous spending
habits. So, after being away all day, he came home to
a kid who had been told all day to "wait until
your father gets home" so dad could be cast into
the role of the heavy - all the kid ever saw of his
father was his temperament.
So, the short answer to your question about
"what happened to men" is that women tried
to raise boys into men without a man's input, and
TOTALLY fucked up the job.
