"How will the family unit be destroyed? ... the demand alone will throw the whole ideology of the family into question, so that women can begin establishing a community of work with each other and we can fight collectively. Women will feel freer to leave their husbands and become economically independent, either through a job or welfare."
A good and lengthy post. I actually have no skin in the game as I am not married and have no children. That being said I do watch with great intrigue how marriage/divorce/children are used as weapons during divorce. I personally don't see why men get married and have children in this country in the first place. Not to lay critique on the "MRA" subsegment of the Manosphere, but it's almost as if they were outlandishly naive or foolish about their chances of having marital and familial success. Did they not read between the lines? How can you not see it coming? And additionally, it's not like people my age didn't know about the risks of divorce. This isn't 1975. Divorce statistics and the unlikelihood of having a successful marriage were well known when this current crop of men got married.
Also reading the post above made me wonder what business was it of the government's anyway to get involved in marriage/divorce/children? Child protective services I can understand, but whether Jan and John (let alone John and John) want to get marriage and subsequently divorced is none of the state's concern.
Well, when I am president, things will change. And for all you feminists out there that means we'll be making sure when you say you're "independent" you're going to be truly and genuinely independent with no help from the government and no help from other people. You will stand truly on your own and have the pride that comes with 100% self-supportation. Because that IS the definition of being independent and, coincidentally, being treated as an equal man. Which is what you want, right?
