Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

Lacewing --- Wonderful! We agree about the importance of community. I enjoyed your characterisation of the intimate social nature of life in a tribe. Sad you don’t have much time for the family, since I see that as a female speciality. You say that my, “ONLY SEEING THINGS ONE WAY is extraordinarily...

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

Lacewing --- Oh, you disappoint me: you judge our exchanges are ‘entertainment’ -- not “truly inspired discussions.” You add that you are just, “having a little fun”. For me our discussion means a whole lot more. I am trying to improve my whole philosophy of life by talking to you. I am absolutely ...

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

Lacewing --- Wow! Quite a broadside! You are right that my crusade gives me a sense of importance and confidence with women, but that doesn’t mean it is wrong. Neither does it make me very clever. If I’ve got it right, every man already has all this ‘definitive truth’ I am spouting -- the only prob...

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

Lacewing --- Thank you for commenting so fully. No, I don’t have a flag. I fear men are never going to march together on this issue -- each individual has to act on his own -- so a flag would be superfluous. Even for an individual, flying one outside his house would be over-doing it: mounting his ‘...

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

Lacewing --- I don’t have trouble with women -- even when wearing my male champion sweatshirt -- I just had difficulties with my wife. Our marriage lasted 22 years (she only divorced me when I went to jail) so it cannot have been that bad a relationship. But you are right, I am absolutely hopeless ...

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

henry quirk and Arising_uk --- I’d like to put a vote in for WD40 -- that will fix almost everything also. I am founding a new society, The Suffrageur Society, only to exist on the internet. Does that name suggest anything to you? If it existed, which it doesn’t, it would be the opposite of ‘suffra...

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

henry quirk --- You'll have to explain 'duct tape' being the pinnacle of human achievement. Is it because of its silencing feature?

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

henry quirk --- You are so right: I seek attention for myself all the time, as well as give as much as possible to other people. I call it ftfiipws: face-to-face interaction in public with strangers, and I believe it is the pinnacle of human achievement -- at once the most complex yet easiest thing...

Re: A knot of sexist logic in the Western mind

Arising_uk --- I’m sorry, I thought you were suggesting that bonobos were a better model for human behaviour than baboons. What you wanted to say was that both baboons and bonobos are equally irrelevant? The theory I’m working on is that if two species with a recent common ancestor share a trait, t...

Re: A knot of sexist logic in the Western mind

Arising_uk --- Hi, I hope you are well? I love the bonobos (I’ve even let a mother bonobo, Diatou at Twycross Zoo, put my thumb in her mouth), but I am not sure how much the female controls the male for sex. Do you know? They have so much of it it must be hard to sort out who’s controlling whom. I a...

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

henry quirk --- I like your description of how to behave when entering a room very much, and I think you are right that ‘distraction’ was not quite the right word. What you do as you enter a room is crucial to the following conversations -- you can never fully recover your presence after a spoilt e...

Re: A knot of sexist logic in the Western mind

SpheresOfBalance --- Thanks for the information on epigenetics, I will pay more attention to it in the future. Who’s on top, man or woman? Physical strength means nothing. Woman has always been in charge of sex.  Only when a man physically overpowers her does she lose control, and that very rarely ...

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

henry quirk --- Not quite sure of the difference between, “The rest: have to be doin' sumthin' to pique my interest", and my, "one should be easily distracted by someone else who stands out for some reason". Can you explain? I thought I was just rephrasing. Staring at people. Ah, I thought you’d fi...

Re: A knot of sexist logic in the Western mind

You comment: Simply, these students, if they're lucky, learn: life ain't fair so defend yourself. All three of the ‘morals’ identified (at which...

Re: A philosophy for arguing with wives

Sir-Sister-of-Suck --- I am very sorry, I am trying to reply to everyone in turn, but somehow I missed you out. Thank you for replying, despite my murky past. As far as me thinking that men desire to be free of women, you have me wrong. I think that MGTOW is a very unnatural movement. Men desire wo...
