This guy likes hearing himself talk too much to worry about making sense.

Just like a woman!

He starts by saying it's 'obvious' how feminism takes away the ability of men to act like men, but stumbles around while avoiding saying what it is.

Don't be all passive-aggressive and cowardly like a woman. Be direct and assertive like a man, and just explain 'feminism takes away the ability of men to control and dominate women as written in the Bible, by giving them equal rights.' Everyone watching knows what you mean.

What I love about guys like this is that they hate that feminism supposedly tells men how to act, then once they've established that they immediately begin telling men how to act.

It's a perfectly cromulent word.

But I'm very drunk. Very drunk.

If you're not a Christian, this is all gibberish.

I wonder if this also proves that Finn Joliette, or whatever that fat magician's name is, is not a boring douchebag.

I wish he'd just keep his mouth shut like his partner, Kruller.

I think the feminisation of men has a lot less to do with the feminist movement and a lot more to do with advances in technology that allow us to be lazy and get away with it.
William Burns
Yeah, just like women have been lazy since the beginning of history, amirite?

No, I am not and neither are you. The disinigration of traditional western gender roles is occurring because they no longer have a purpose and because it's a lot more fun to be whatever you feel like being rather than falling into lockstep with the roles set up based on the shape of your genitals.

Sputum
You sort of just agreed with him. Gender roles are no longer necessary in our culture because technology has taken care of some of the biological issues.

TheQuakeSoldier
First off, I said nothing about women being lazy. You said gender roles "no longer have a purpose". I agree, and my contention is that that is due to advances in technology (IE, there is less work to be "done" on all fronts than there used to be, giving people the ability to choose their roles more freely.) Look at any example of a "feminized male" and ask yourself if that person could have survived in pioneer times. It's technology and infrastructure that have enabled this newfound freedom, not the feminist movement.

William Burns
My issue was your regarding "laziness" as the antonym of "masculinity." I interpolated that in your view, a man's femininity was directly proportional to his laziness. If we're both talking about the drift towards gender neutrality, then I misunderstood you.

frau_eva
Neither could this supposedly "feminized" women survive in pioneer times. Women did a ridiculous amount of work back then, just as much or possibly even more than men. Your whole idea of "feminized" is purely a product of the Victorian age when industrialization began and started to take over a lot of the jobs women performed in the home(candlemaking, soapmaking, etc) and it became a status symbol to have a woman who just twiddled her thumbs all day. So really, technology itself originally constructed the gender roles as you know it(they sucked before then, but this is gender as you know it).

rawelkij
It's true that industrialization took a lot of women's jobs out of the home and into the factory, but it's also true that before industrialization, men did most of the physical work; farming, fighting, etc. Not to say that men are better at those things, or that those are better or more important jobs, but on average men are bigger and more muscular, simply because they have more testosterone. The fact that very few modern jobs require manual labor means that men have no inherent advantage over women as they did in physical work.

I think that's what QuakeSoldier and William Burns were getting at.

William Burns
I didn't say that men did most of the physical work in preindustrial society because that is not universally true. I think that a drift away from rural family life and away from religion has as much or more to do with changing gender roles than the types of labor women are doing. Before someone previously relegated to a domestic role can become self-sufficient, they must first recognize the possibility of doing so and live close to a source of revenue.

Of course, the guy in the video isn't self-sufficient either if he doesn't know how to cook, vaccum or change his kid's diapers. His wife obviously doesn't like him enough to iron his shirt, for instance.

TeenerTot
Every time one of these kinds of Xtians talks, all I can hear is "we need to get back to a society where we can beat our pregnant, barefoot wives while they cook our dinner and mend our clothes."
HankFinch
I know, it's like they're finally making sense for once.

I see feminization and stuff and as something that is like taking away from the roles of man and stuff so that like men become emasculated and stuff.

APE_GOD
Holy shit.

Five for evil.
