Why MRA has been and will continue to be

Yea, my situation was similar. It’s definitely interesting to hear. FWIW, I think my brother was very narcissistic when we were younger. I think he’s probably still a “cad” with women now, and low empathy/high bullshit, but in terms of his overall life…. let’s just say he “adapted” better to social situations as a teen than as grown man.

Where did you get that from? How did the Sexual revolution cause men to be less outgoing, open and friendly?

First and foremost, feminism has eroded self-confidence in males, as female gains have come at their expense, and their role in American society has been diminished and criticized. Secondly, the Sexual Revolution has unleashed female hypergamy, with the most hypergamous women rewarding the most narcissistic men in spades. Men correctly perceive that being “nice” gets you nowhere with women, which has led to the Impostor Asshole trend we observe as nice guys pretend to be jerks to increase their attractiveness to the opposite sex. Thirdly, sexual harrassment and sexual assault laws make outgoing, open and friendly behavior punishable if it is “unwelcome.”

Hope, I know many parents today who are raising their teens with no rules/love. They thing punishing and sometimes even setting boundaries is oppressive and backwards, maybe even abusive. They also think they cannot tell their teens not to do stuff that they themselves did at the same age or are doing now. They don’t want to be hypocrites.

Wow, your story is incredible. You have beaten some very long odds, and you have my complete respect.

@J, babies may be a different story, but kids who are old enough for kindergarten/school definitely respond to schedules and rules.

@Yohami, I didn’t know you were with her that long. I guess in the context of the discussion, why were you with a NPD woman?
