Do you have fun with your male buddies? If so you're a DANGER TO WOMEN!

Scientists have found out that men who enjoy spending time with their male friends are shirking their responsibility of listening to a woman bitch about her lot in life. This rampant misogyny cannot be tolerated any longer! #ListenToBitches

Way to blame the victim here. Men have been suffering for generations with social stigmas and lack of meaningful relationships. This is gaslighting at its finest.



I suppose the author would prefer for men to solely depend on women for all of their emotional needs. Because, you know, there is a power dynamic there. I can only imagine that women with this perspective suffer from unsatisfying, dysfunctional relationships.



Not to mention this is a huge double standard. Women always have their "girlfriends"- close intimate relationships with other women. No one suggests that those relationships endanger marriage. Everyone assumes women talk about things with their girlfriends that they don't talk about with their boyfriend.





Have some common sense- dependency is not good. Manipulation is not good. Power doesn't make you happy. Your relationship with a guy isn't going to make you feel better about yourself- that has to come from you.



Friendships aren't going to endanger healthy marriages. Friendships make relationships stronger- make people more resilient, make it easier to work through difficult things. Two stable, independent people coming together is the best case scenario. They become interdependent, but not needy.



The male-female relationships you describe are dysfunctional- and they will crumble. We're probably all better off for these types of relationships to fade into the distance.



You want to be authentic? Have authentic relationships where you talk about things, instead of manipulating people.

Men who prefer the company of other men make up a crucial demographic. We are the independent thinkers who reject social pathogens.

Who cares honestly? If some parts of society dont like your way of life, just dont bother with it. The only ones who matter are your friends and your partner. If problems come up, solve them with your brain and dont let the community indoctrinate you how you are supposed to live.

Did I click on the right article? What it looks like to me is a typical thinly veiled homophobic rant from the Torygraph, but the MGTOWs have jumped on it as if it's some matriarchal piece.

while i find that result stupid, i have to agree on this since girls always want someone to talk to. if you as a boyfriend/husband do not listen what your women want to express which is hidden deeply inside their mind. i could hinder your relationship in the long run. that's could be the same thing vice versa as well.
