The mentality of modern women

From one of the comments at the Good Mangina Project:

“I married a guy with less education and in the end I had to pay him both child and spousal support. I know it’s a double standard, but a guy working the system to take support from a woman still feels wrong to me

But I suppose a woman working the system to steal a man’s earnings is perfectly fine. Un-fucking-believable.

    It’s the old having the cake and eating it, too, of feminism. Feminists are not against double standards. They are against double standards that they view as not favoring women. Feminism is a women’s empowerment movement, so this makes sense. The dissonance only arises when fools actually view feminism as being about “equality”, which it clearly is not. If it were, feminist groups like AAUW would be up in arms right now about the “gender gap” college matriculation and graduation rates, but, to the contrary, not only have they not been mum, but they are actively promoting the meme that this is nothing to be concerned about at all. The only way that makes any sense at all is if you view feminism for what it is — a female empowerment movement that is designed to gain power for women, full stop. Double standards that favor women are fine, therefore.

    I think the problem isn’t just double standards but the myth of equality as well. Men and women will never be equal. Either men or women have the “upper hand” so to say so choose wisely.

    I’d wager a guess that she is full of sh*t.

    I hear many women say, “If the woman earns more, the man gets half of her stuff”.

    That is not true at all.

    Ah, I know one such couple where the woman is a partner at a law firm and the ex-husband is a Dilbert type cubicle drone. She didn’t want full custody because of the impact on her career, so the share custody and she pays him c/s, which is priced to subsidize his rent as well. The house was sold and he did get a good amount of the assets (not sure if it was 50% or not, though). The best was hearing her complain about how she worries that he spends some of the CS on his girlfriend.

    Three words for that: heh heh heh.
