Why are guys so angry over feminism? Why get all mad when women ask for equal rights? Some men seem to feel that women keep asking for more and more concessions. They feel like they keep giving us stuff but we’re never happy.
All we want is equality
What these men don’t seem to understand is that we’re NOT asking for gifts. We want equality. And we are very far away from that right now. If you want to see the numbers, check out my webpage and read my white paper here.
Women want what men have always understood to be their right: to work at a job we love and get recognition for good performance in the form of raises and promotions. We don’t want to get stuck under a glass ceiling, or be penalized for having children.
Supporting a family requires two incomes for the vast majority of the population, especially in big cities such as New York and Los Angeles. A man can’t support a wife and children on his income alone unless he is very wealthy. Those days are over and women have moved on—but it seems like some men have not.
Some men still dream of the nuclear family that never existed anywhere except late-twentieth century sitcoms, and then get angry when their real relationships with real women don’t match up. Why are guys so angry about treating women like people? Some men seem to have a disconnection between the ways they treat women they know—their mothers, sisters, and daughters—and women they meet in the workplace.
They don’t seem to understand that if they terrorize female interns at work, it opens the door for their daughters to be treated the same way.
Watch this short video I recorded so you can better understand where I am coming from. I’m saying this over and over again… we’re very far from achieving the true meaning of equality. What can you do to help? I would love to hear your thoughts about this. Share it below.
The Golden Rule
The key to anger management in this case is something they should have learned in kindergarten: the Golden Rule. Treat other people as you wish to be treated. Take some personal responsibility for your actions and be aware of how they affect others. Opening troll accounts to post nasty comments on my videos does nothing productive and just makes you look bitter and overly sensitive.
