Today, I was talking with my girl and I said, “don’t worry your inferior, pretty little head about it.”
She replied, “what’s ‘inferior’?”
Oh, you gem of a girl!
I love to mansplain. I absolutely adore it. But I find girls don’t ask the right questions. They don’t ask me to explain stuff they already know. But since my girl loves when I mansplain to her, she asks ridiculous questions.
And I love her for it.
Find yourself a girl who sets you up for the simplest mansplains on earth. She’ll get the thrill of your condescending tone. You’ll feel like you’re teaching her something and, let’s face it, men love to teach girls.
And girls, if you’re not setting him up for an opportunity to mansplain, it’s you who’s missing out.
You see, there are two kinds of people in this world. People who lead and people who follow.
People who lead are called “dominant.” They make sure everything is under control. They care for you, protect you, provide for you, and give you rules to follow so that you feel safe. And you love to feel safe, don’t you?
People who follow are called “submissive.” Submissive people follow their leader and they do as they’re told. They’re soft and very, very polite. They enjoy pleasing other people, so it’s natural for them to obey when someone tells them what to do.
Dominant/submissive relationships mean that you have at least one dominant person and at least one submissive person in a relationship together. It’s a little more (hmmm … “complicated” is a big word) … there’s a little more to it than that, but that’s basically how it works.
See? Simple enough for even a girl to understand.
I just realized that vintageinstepford.com did not have a way of notifying subscribers that a new post has been made.
I have changed that. Now, whenever a new post is made on the site, you’ll be notified via email.
I’m not sure if there’s a way to opt out. I would think so, as it’s legally required as far as I know, but I haven’t tested it fully so I’m not positive.
I’d love to hear your comments about notifications on the site. Let me know in the comment section of this post.
We see it all the time – feminism redefines a term. It has attempted to redefine the term “family.” It has attempted to redefine the term “equality.” It has attempted, and succeeded, in redefining “rape” and many other terms.
So I propose that we, in the Men First movement, redefine the term “feminism.”
Here is the new definition of feminism in the 2019 version of the “Men First Concise English Dictionary”:
noun [ U ] / US /ˈfem·əˌnɪz·əm/
1. The belief that men are superior to women by virtually every scientifically measurable metric.
2. The belief that women are inferior to men by virtually every scientifically measurable metric.
3. The belief that, because of their superiority, men have a moral duty and social obligation to protect women, and to provide for them.
4. The belief that, because of their inferiority, women have a moral duty and social obligation to surrender their rights to the man of their choice in return for the privilege of serving him.
5. The belief that women are more empowered when they stop struggling for equal rights and adopt a feminine, demure, and submissive way of life.
6. The belief that Patriarchal culture is best for everyone, including women.
If feminism is going to redefine terms, Men First can redefine them, too.
One of the most important things you need to focus on with your traditional girl is her personal growth and overcoming some of her fears. Carl Jung said that the best way to overcome a personal fear is to face it.
If she’s afraid of heights, take her into a building to the second floor for several days in a row. The next week, take her to the third floor for several days. The next week, the fourth floor and so on. If you don’t have a tall building nearby, have her lie down, close her eyes, and imagine these things. Slowly, as she confronts her fears, she’ll overcome them.
I’ll give you an example.
My girl, Christina, was incredibly envious of my interactions with other women. If I would so much as laugh at something another girl said, Christina would get quite upset.
But slowly, I showed her that my interactions were completely harmless and her jealousy began to subside.
In fact, Christina’s jealousy has swung the other way. We’ve recently been talking about adding a second girl to the relationship and becoming poly. And it’s all because Christina confronted her fears and stared them down.
Your number one priority in your relationship with your traditional girl is to help her grow. If she’s not growing, she’s just cruising through life, and that is unhealthy for her and for your relationship.
It’s great when she’s a good girl, but it’s healthier when she’s an even better girl.
For millennia, women had it made – staying in the safety of the home, having everything provided, focusing on things they love like cooking, baking, and sewing … ah, the good ol’ days.
And then suddenly women think, “oh wow, we can do all the things men can do!”
So despite the obvious flaws in that logic, such as the fact that woman are physically weaker than men (Bishop & Cureton, 1987), that women have 8 – 13% less brain mass than men (Ankney, 1992), and that women are, on average, 3.75 IQ points dumber than men given the same brain mass (Van der Linden et al., 2017) women decided to pursue “equal rights” – the right to work like slaves for some stranger for 40+ hours per week, the right to not have anyone physically attracted to them, the right to not have someone provide for their every need … you know, important rights.
Women had it made and ended up royally screwing themselves over. Studies show women’s absolute happiness and happiness relative to men has been declining drastically for 35 years (Stevenson & Wolfers, 2009).
And why would they give up all that happiness, safety, and fun?
One reason – and men have known it since the dawn of time:
“Leave it to a woman to screw things up.”
I passed the big test. I spent Christmas at my parents’ place. Alcohol was abundant, but I didn’t touch the stuff. I was even offered a glass of Sherry (my greatest weakness) and said, “no thank you, I don’t drink.”
It’s been 54 days without a single drink of alcohol. Yesterday, on the way back from my parents’ house, I had to pass by the liquor store – the very liquor store I’ve been avoiding for 50 days. Nothing. No urge to go in and buy something. Nothing.
Life seems to be getting back to normal – whatever “normal” is when you’re sober for the first time in 30+ years.
This is getting easier, but I don’t want to let my guard down and slip, so I’m ever-conscious of my weakness for alcohol and I’m finding ways to occupy my time beside drinking.
If I can make it through Christmas, though, I can make it through anything.
