What I find interesting are the fairytale fantasies sold, e.g.
…Third, we can’t forget this entire time what the fashion/movie/sex industry was telling these kids. Women were entitled to strong, but sensitive, but not too sensitive men, who could read minds, were all millionaires (preferably billionaires) looked like Brad Pitt, voted Democrat, wanted sex, but only when the women wanted to have sex, and wanted to wait until she was ready to have children, and would MAGICALLY show up and be ready to marry when she was ready to take a brake from her “fabulous” writing career at 32 years and 7 months. Boys were fed the lies that women liked kind, sensitive caring men, who voted Democrat, opened doors for girls, and wrote poetry, and as long as you did that you would be guaranteed to have that hot, sex-addicted nymphomaniac that you’ve come to expect watching increasing amounts of internet porn. Besides, who can blame them? According to their teachers and parents they were the greatest people to ever grace this earth. Besides, they had college degrees and were “going green,” and that ENSURED they’d have great love lives….
The supposed red-pill men don’t discount the illusions marketing has sold them either. I would add they expect a charming obedient 10 of a future wife (whatever they are or do themselves, like it’s destiny) and the feminist women who expect a husband is like a handbag and you just choose him, have him and keep him like an object because he doesn’t really do anything or have an opinion. Husbands exist for their wives, wives exist for their husbands (this is a truism, if you question it, it falls apart).
Delusions on both sides. We’re both dehumanizing one another.
Reminds me of this gem: http://waitbutwhy.com/2013/09/why-generation-y-yuppies-are-unhappy.html for the inevitable self-immolation of the sheltered narcissist in conflict with reality.
Or the ‘scantron husband’ or ‘scantron wife’ from: http://waitbutwhy.com/2014/02/pick-life-partner.html
They see a list of requirements like they’re shopping for a power tool instead of a person to love and who should love them, as you can imagine, it doesn’t end well. The fairytales are fictional because the characteristics are mutually exclusive e.g. pure virgin vs. depraved nymphomaniac.
