How many men want a marriage proposal from a woman? None!

5 Dec


The University of California at Santa Cruz is one of the most liberal, left-leaning college campuses in the US, so you would expect some pretty progressive attitudes about gender and social norms from the student body, and by progressive I mean gleefully emasculating and ideologically poisoned.
But guess what?  Out of all the students surveyed about their attitudes towards marriage proposals, not ONE SINGLE MAN OR WOMAN said they would prefer a woman to propose marriage.  Raise your hand if you think this is MEN’S FAULT!
Yay!  Good thinking!  The desire for men to propose is SEXISM, and not just any sexism, but BENEVOLENT sexism.  That means men think women should be cherished and protected and clearly, that is BAD because….well, I don’t know why, but let’s go with it, shall we? So men are benevolent sexists and this makes both men and women want MEN to propose marriage.  Not just SOME women and men.  ALL OF THEM.  And they’re hippies, too!

The researchers were SHOCKED. Shocked, I tell you.  Why on earth weren’t more women taking the lead and asking the man to marry her?  Why in heaven’s name weren’t men delighted by the thought of the lady down on one knee with a ring for him?

Why indeed.  Here’s why:  life is biology and biology always wins. Men are bigger and stronger than women.  What women want most from a man is to feel protected.  There is nothing whatsoever wrong with this.
“Consciously, most women would like their men to be kind, empathic, understanding, and respectful. But their inner cavewoman knows Doormat Man would become Sabertooth Tiger Lunch in short order”, says Angela Knight, in A Billion Wicked Thoughts.  Have you read that book?  You should.  It’s a tour de force of evidence demonstrating that women are hard-wired to feel aroused by submission, that dominance in men is one of their most sexually appealing qualities.  #sorryfeminists
It’s interesting that even at Jezebel, not a very man (or woman) friendly site, many women are proud to declare their husbands proposed to them, and they have happily taken on their husband’s name.  In 2004, 94% of married women in the US took their husband’s name, and of course!  It’s a demonstrable testament to the fact that women want to be under the protection of a man.

Feminism as an ideology tries very hard to teach women that they should NOT want to  shelter under the shield of a man’s protection.  “A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle”, said Gloria Steinem, famously.  Who then went on to marry, of course. Baby boomer women did an excellent job of tearing apart the fabric of our society by teaching women to choose doormat husbands, and teaching men that their highest calling in life was to be that doormat.  Lie down and let your wife wipe her boots on you.

And women have the law to back them up.  They continue to divorce men at appalling rates, they are disproportionately awarded custody and child support and alimony and have never as a group been more unhappy.

A younger generation of women is now asking:  where have all the good men gone?  Look down.  They’re under your feet.  And getting a little tired of your dirty boots.

And if you plan on marrying one of those men, don’t even think about proposing to him and keeping your daddy’s name.  Not one person thinks that a good idea, and that right there is hope for the future.


Lots of love,

    LOL, I wrote about this same article today, too. Obnoxious as the Jezebel article is, somehow Amanda Marcotte at Slate manages to be even more obnoxious writing about the same topic.

    Well, I’ll take the task of reversing that trend: I wholly expect the woman to propose. Marriage is a woman’s institution (or I should say, racket); even when men propose, it’s usually them caving to the woman’s pressure. Since marriage usually begins and ends with a woman’s say-so, and divorce is such a major source of women’s collective income, it’s only fair that they have the onus of proposal.

    Considering initiating every step of a relationship (asking out, kissing, any kind of sex act) is sexual harassment or worse when initiated by a male, women must take all the initiative now. All of it. They asked for it after all.

    Which should surprise absolutely no one. Marcotte is a gender hustler of the lowest order.
