Man Hates Strong, Confident Women Because They're 'Repellent'

by Jenny Erikson

Sometimes I read things on the Internet that make me question my faith in humanity. Because of people like this douche that write things called The Case Against Female Self-Esteem. If he really believes what he says, then he’s a terrible person, and if he’s putting it out there just for sensationalism, then he’s still a terrible person.

Where to begin? It’s over 2,000 words of the most disgusting anti-female drivel I’ve ever read. He starts the whole thing by declaring his love for insecure women, and when a girl brags about her confidence or strength, his dick deflates “like a punctured tire.” Yeah, all two inches of it, I bet.

Really, you should take a few minutes and read the whole thing, but if you can’t stomach it, here are some of the highlights.

“Most girls have done nothing to deserve self-esteem … In the world of men, respect -- and by extension self-esteem -- is based on actually achieving something of worth or having some kind of skill or talent ... Women claim they want equal rights as men, but they don’t want equal responsibilities. As such, they demand respect not based on their merit as people, but for merely continuing to breathe. Most girls’ so-called achievements, the ones they take pride in, are complete jokes.”

I don’t know any women like that, sorry. I know a lot of women that work their asses off, are tremendously talented, earn the respect of their peers, and in my demographic, they do it with a baby on their hip.

“Part of our identity as men based in women needing us, if not necessarily in a material sense, then in an emotional one, though material and emotional vulnerability often go hand in hand … Confidence doesn’t give men erections; vulnerability does.”

Someone has confused insecurity with vulnerability. It actually takes a tremendous amount of strength and courage to be truly vulnerable. He doesn’t want vulnerability, he wants insecurity and dependence so he can dominate and control her. A strong woman wouldn’t put up with this guy’s bass-ackwards thinking on gender roles.

“Women don’t want to have high self-esteem. This is the kicker; in their bones, girls know that their toxic, feminist you-go-grrl ideology is a lie. Why do you think the average urban slut machine is downing enough Prozac to poison the water supply? Pharmacological assistance is the only way she can make it through her day without slitting her wrists, or alternately realizing that her life is a complete lie.”

Maybe some women take anti-depressants because pissants like this think that confident women are just “urban slut machines.” I definitely feel like I could use a Xanax right about now.

“At the end of the day, there are no Strong, Independent Women™. There are only shrews pleading for a taming. All the posturing, the pill-popping, the whining and demands for “equality”; they’re a cry for help. Girls don’t want the six-figure cubicle job, the shiny Brooklyn 2BR, the master’s degree, the sexual liberation, none of it. They want to be collectively led back to the kitchen, told to make a nice big tuna sandwich with extra mayo and lettuce, then swatted on the ass as we walk out the door.”

No. Words.

On a scale of one to eleven, how big of a chauvinist a-hole is this guy in your book?

jaw drop

 

The saddest part about all of this is that this guy isn't alone in his sentiment. I pity the woman this man ends up with, because inevitably, there is such a woman out there that will fit his mold and validate his statements.

The author of the original blog is a guy named Matt Forney.  Just a PSA for any single women who might run into him.

I'm confident that there are plenty of women lacking in self-esteem just waiting to be abused by him and men like himself....

 I went to the actual blog. The only thing more disturbing than this blog entry are the comments it garnered below it.

To be fair though, I think this man has made a "career" of being an internet douchebag and gets off on the attention he gets from people for his outlandish statements. He knows what he is doing. After all, he caught the attention of Cafemom, and now will relish in the 100 plus comments he will get that he has never recieved before from angry women. It will all feed his ego.

He isn't alone in his thinking. In fact, I'm pretty sure my FIL would read this disgusting drivel and agree with every last word of it. 

It's funny, because I believe in karma, and since my FIL is such a douche about this sort of thing, both of his sons married very strong-willed, confident and independent women. Now that is karma. ;)

Sad, but true.

His mother should be ashamed of raising him to have such warped thinking.
