Hear! Hear! Hear!
Women have been doing 99% of the nurturing work with men since time immemorial. So now we're saying "enough of that sh*t! We're not gonna take it any more!"
Women are far more able to be on their own than men are. It's why men so often remarry after divorce almost immediately. Indeed, my 1st husband married 3 weeks after the divorce was final.
Many women are just effing tired of having an extra baby in the house who is perfectly able to take care of himself but refuses to do so. And that baby sucks women dry faster than any actual human baby. ME ME ME ME ME ME ME!!!! And she ends up feeling guilty about it.
No more. You guys want nurturing, you damn well better ask for it. And if you haven't grown up enough to ask for it, go back to mommy.
There are plenty of resources out there -- books, videos, movies, therapists, groups, whathaveyou. We are supposed to figure out for ourselves what we need and want, and then go get it.
So if y'all can't do that, poor, poor you. You get no sympathy from me. I've been through 30 years of therapy and 50 years of educating myself as well as mountains of writing working through my issues.
To those not preapared to do the work, and you need us to baby you until you can get there -- FFS, GROW the F up.!
