    The image bothers me. Men do all they can to spare women suffering. Now, they are complaining about “manspreading” and “mansplaining”.

      As an early men’s movement writer once pointed out, women “complain at the margins.” That is, they readily vocalise discontent. They cry readily too. It’s to get attention, resources and help.

      “At the margins” meaning about anything, however small, that is currently bothering them.

      There is something profoundly absurd about women using public transportation invented, maintained and run by men, and then complaining about manspreading.

        That reminds me of the feminist tale of how a woman invented windshield wipers, and we should all be eternally grateful to her since we can now drive in the rain. Of course, they leave out the fact that the wipers are useless without the automobile, of which every single part was invented by men, including headlights, which are used far more often. (There are not a small percentage of people that won’t drive in the rain b/c it’s more dangerous, rendering the wipers moot for them. Everyone drives at night.)

        At the margins, indeed.

        Not only have they presumed that men to be their benefactors, they have made them their whipping boys. That is one way to demonstrate social dominance.

        I think that point about windshield wipers is jokingly teferred to on The Simpsons.

        As for social dominance, women can only achieve that if men enable it. In societies where men don’t, such as Saudi Arabia, it doesn’t exist.

  3. If the women who consider conceiving and bearing children to be a ‘punishment’ on the order of crucifixion (like this), then why don’t they just have themselves sterilized?
    If they want to have a family they can ALWAYS adopt.
