Studies in cluelessness

From MsMusings, we have a lovely story of a man who is telling other men not to marry because women just don't want romance anymore. For those inclined to think of romance as flowers and dinners and stuff, prepare to be shocked. He means those more romantic marriages where women relished waiting on her man hand and foot, though he is willing to grant the occasional lunch date with friends. Why wouldn't women want that? It's such a puzzle. They must be wicked, there's just no other explanation.

From Hugo, we have this true mensch writing about why women are both staying single and voting for Democrats--they must be evil.

To summarize: whether a woman votes Democrat or Republican turns out to be massively correlated to whether she's married. Democrats are evil. Thus, the 20th century's creation of a large class of single women is both symptom and propagating cause of social dissolution.

There can be no other explanation. And he knows that you women are lying to yourselves, since men know far better than women what women are thinking.

Please don't bother to write to me about the joys of the "independent" woman. I'm just not going to believe you. Serial monogamy, materialism and a lonely, childless old age just isn't that compelling.

Anyone who would turn her nose up to a long and joyful life waiting on this man hand and foot and having his children cannot have a brain cell in her head, so why even bother trying to convince him otherwise? If you came to your senses, we'd all know it because you wouldn't be trying to tell a man anything anyway.

Of course, it's pretty fruitless asking how it could be that if all married women are good and all single women are wicked, what was the moral character of the married women in their single years?

1) There's a good bit of playful cant in that post. But if you're a liberal and a casual reader of my blog, you won't pick up on a conservative hamming around with politics and statistics.

2) Most political questions are low-interest for me. I did not take the original article as anything more than thought-provoking but ulimately without any real assessment of the cause of the voting gap.

3) My wife's one of the most "independent" women I know in many regards. I do not expect her to wait on me. You can ask her what it's like to bear my children -- she's got our first in the womb now. e-pression.blogspot.com She's got her own word for fettered insecurities of whiny feminists. Probably best if you heard it from a woman.

Alas, my very existence as a human being is incomprehensible by these standards. I am legally "single" but deeply committed, voluntarily childless and well-catted, a feminist who has never had the mythological problem finding men that conservative chortle over, and my urge to mate with a conservative who is going to preach to me that my politics and beliefs are evil is actually below my urge to poke myself with a sharp stick to the eye. But luckily, I have no idea what I'm talking about. ;)
Has anyone ever noticed that the standard-issue response of anti-feminist men is to drag their wives or girlfriends into it? It seems to me the implication is, "I got a woman who agrees with me, or at least says she does, so the rest of you must be bat-shit crazy."

Oh, I'm sure she does. Being the one special, non-evil, non-feminist broad gives a lot of women a sense of importance (and they can happily reap the benefits of feminism while pretending it's 100% their own efforts).
