It’s been a while since we checked in on the internet’s most pathetic “pick-up-artist” Roosh V and his Return of Kings gang. The regular news is so frightening and bizarre, I haven’t really felt the urge to do too much of a deep dive into even more disturbing waters. But this shit was too goddamned funny to pass up.

First off, we’ve got “aspiring philosopher king” Max Roscoe, who recently penned an article over at Return of Kings titled “Why Do We Push Women To Choose Career Over Family?” Much as it is exactly what you would expect, it is so, so much more.

In addition to the usual kvetching about how it would be like, way better for men like him if they didn’t have to deal with women wanting careers, but rather were constantly available for sex and childcare, Roscoe also discusses the ways career gals have sapped all meaning from jewelry.

You see, he recently read an article about how stores like Tiffany & Co. are now catering to “the self-purchasing woman,” i.e. women who, instead of waiting around for a man to buy them jewelry, go ahead and purchase what they want themselves. This is bad because jewelry is supposed to be a way of demonstrating that you have successfully pleased a man:

As the journalist states, women are tired of waiting around for a man to buy her something because she deserves it (earning it) and instead are making these “just because” purchases. In other words, putting forth the effort to attract a man for more than a couple of weeks, or showing him affection and care and devotion, is too difficult for her, so she decides to reward herself with what society has always deemed an outward sign that a woman is successfully pleasing a man—jewelry.

And that is cheating! As a result of this, jewelry is just not as valuable anymore.

Ironically, this removes most of the underlying value of the jewelry itself. Apart from being semi-rare, the main value in jewelry is not in its underlying mineral content, but in the romantic sentiments that go along with said gift. There is both a financial and emotional value attached above and beyond the base value of the metal or stone.

Diamond engagement rings have a far higher markup than other precious stones, because of their emotional connotation to a marriage or engagement. I don’t really care about the silly trinkets women want or use, but the point is, they do, and they are destroying their intrinsic value.

Ah yes…

Clearly, this is an “everyone gets a trophy” thing, and if these selfish women knew what was good for them, they would come by their jewelry honestly, by providing exemplary blow jobs to sad men who write stuff on the internet about how they would prefer that women not have jobs or be educated.

Roscoe makes this clear in the next part of his essay, where he explains that women would be better off having babies and earning their jewels the way god intended rather than having careers and getting educated. Why “we” even bother educating women is just beyond him, given that women are not as good at doing jobs as men are. He’s been thinking about this a lot, after having watched this video by Return of Kings’s Roosh V, titled “Why are women being educated?”

In the video, Roosh discusses a recent incident where he was sitting in a waiting room (NOT TO GET TREATED FOR SYPHILIS, MIND YOU) and saw a girl he found attractive who was — GASP — studying! And she was not good at studying like a man would be, because she also had her phone out. This made Roosh sad for her. Because instead of studying, which she was clearly terrible at, she could have been having his babies and making a home for him, for some other man.

He doesn’t understand why women even need to be educated beyond an 8th grade level, or learn anything other than how to read and write so they can raise children. He’s pretty sure no one can explain this to him without talking about “feelings,” which are stupid. Unless your “feeling” is that you deserve a woman to serve you.

He then goes on a whole rant about how educating women has ruined everything, because now men have to try real hard and learn “game” in order to put their penis inside a woman, whereas that was not the case before. And his grandpa had four wives and a bajillion kids, and he is 37 and does not have any kids, because mean women keep getting educated even though that is not at all what he has deemed one of their three primary purposes in life: reproductive sex, child-rearing and homemaking!

Roosh has been on this trip before, of course. We previously discussed a rant he went on about how educating women in other countries is a vast conspiracy to deprive him of a suitable wife.

The sentiment at the heart of all of this is practically self-deprecating — these men are all but admitting that they can’t attract a woman in a day and age when women are educated and don’t need them to buy them fancy lady trinkets. They’d like to think this is just as bad of a thing for women as it is for them, and so they spend all their time talking about how much happier we’d be if only we’d behave as they’d like us to behave. It would sort of be like me writing an essay about how much happier everyone in the world would be if only they would each give me a thousand bucks.

The problem isn’t women being educated — it’s these men not being good enough for women who are educated, because they are terrible. Like, really, really, really terrible. So terrible that you actually don’t even need an education to know how terrible they are.

In another recent video, Roosh explains that women who wear chokers (like, the necklaces) secretly want to be “trained” and have a master, like dogs, because they know, in their hearts, that this is their place. He then shares his hope for a future where men can treat women like the dogs they are, and where the dumb laws are changed in order to allow men to “discipline” them:

They’re just going by emotion, but deep down inside their nature calls for domination, calls for a man with a strong hand. A man with a strong hand to — metaphorically — dominate. Within the legal code. But laws can be changed, people, laws can be changed. And domination can be institutionalized.

Oh man, it’s so weird how these guys don’t have women lining up to have their babies, yet guys who do not treat women like dogs and are not douchebags are having functional relationships with women — even women who buy their own jewels! You would think that these Red Pilled fellas, who know so, so much about what we really want, would be having the best relationships on earth, and all of the babies. But for some strange reason, they’re just hanging out in their mom’s basements making YouTube videos and writing essays about how much better the world would be if women were dumb enough to fuck them.

        That’s the truly fucked up part. They don’t realize it’s not just women who are better than them, pretty much most people are better than them, if they can’t compete. Women are just a convenient outlet of frustration, on account of not getting any.

    I’ve been married for 6 years and with my wife for 11. I have bought her one piece of jewelry (the exact engagement ring she wanted). Is this because I don’t love her or she is a terrible wife? No, she’s an awesome wife. She makes roughly the same amount (or more, depending on how my business goes) as I do, and buys her own jewelry, because she’s an adult and I have terrible taste.

    Hey, I just figure, let people do what they want. If a woman actually wants to be dominated by and/or be dependent on a man – wants it herself, not because her family and community has brainwashed her – then that’s awesome, and she should find a man who’s into that.

    But if she’s not into that…. then she has the right – nay, the obligation! to tell this hoser to go stuff himself into a drainpipe.

    WTF! is up with that HORRIBLE beard?

  • folderol

    When you don’t have clearly defined rituals, men line Roosh get all a-dither because there is no recourse but to treat a woman like person, which is weird! I mean, men have to be all empathetic and understanding and stuff. Icky! Why can women just be pleasure-things, like men intended?

    Unless of course you are a father to a daughter, then that whole thing gets turned around all of a sudden.

  • SayItWithOtters

    So this guy is pining for the existence his grandfather had in rural Iran in the pre-internet-and-high-school era? Dumbass is free to head back there and try to recreate the good old days anytime.

    • TrixieB (formerly Grrrr…)

      Don’t Iranian women have enough problems already?

  • Zippy W Pinhead

    WAIT! So these guys think that it’s good that men get ripped off and are overcharged when they buy an engagement ring for their fiance? Having some jeweler overcharge them proves what exactly? Also too, these dimwits think women are self purchasing engagement rings?

    • Panika MCD

      they’re purchasing jewelry, so they won’t even get far enough in a relationship to get the engagement ring!!!11!!1!

      these guys can’t even get a woman to swipe right on their profile picture. they can’t fix themselves, so they blame women. which means they should probably go fuck themselves since no one will ever do it for them.

  • Resistance Fighter Callyson

    And she was not good at studying like a man would be, because she also had her phone out.

    LOL, Roosh is unaware that lots of today’s undergrads take notes on their phone. He can’t even snark on women well FFS.

    I’m pretty sure uneducated women in any time period would recognize that these are not suitable people to be involved with even at arms length. they are pining for a history that never was because they would be shoveling stalls and cleaning the piss and shit from alleyways–not getting to bone all the women and ride around in magnificent carriages.

  • Mr. Blobfish

    I have the feeling that Max has never purchased a woman anything, let alone jewelry.

    • Zippy W Pinhead

      He has probably purchased a patch for his blowup doll, does that count?

      • Me not sure

        Only because he’s waiting for them to perfect a doll that blows you.

    • SkinlessGenderlessMan

      I’ll propose the theory that while he’s never purchased a woman, he may rent occasionally.

      • Mr. Blobfish

    “. . .women are tired of waiting around for a man to buy her something because

    Urm, if she’s got the money, then she freakin’ “deserves” whatever she chooses to buy. Sorry manchildren, that’s actual freakin’ reality. Maybe stop looking like a bloated, sexist Treebeard, work on your personality and learn some respect for the gender that squeezed you into existence. These morons don’t deserve a girlfriend “just because”. You have to earn that.

        Yeah, you’re right about that, but just look at that guy’s beard. It’s some seriously misguided thing. I have facial hair, but it’s short and well maintained. It’s just. . . I have no words.

        • sgt. jmk of the résistance

          Not to worry – that’s the effect these eedjits have on sane and sentient human beings.

    • Jamoche

      So women are simultaneously not bright enough that it’s worth educating them at all, and bright enough to be able to afford all the shinies they want.

      Damn it, why didn’t I hide code to detect shit like that and cut them off from the Internet when I had the chance?

      • jowgajen

        The eternal complaint is that we still get shinies but he gets no sex.

    • SweetDeeKat

      No, no, no, she earns it by making sammiches and giving blow jobs and cleaning the beer cans out of his ’76 Olds Cutlass. See, if she pleases him, she deserves it.

      Excuse me while I deal with this urge to vomit.

  • Carpe Vagenda

    He then goes on a whole rant about how
    educating women has ruined everything, because now men have to try real hard and learn “game” in order to put their penis inside a woman, whereas that was not the case before.

    The teachings of internet evolutionary biology have changed a lot since I was in the pool. Because back then, men had to be shiny objects with all the stuff, and women brought their changeling babies home to their poor and boring husbands to improve the species.

    Still not sure how the whole picking a mate for survival traits thing goes, I guess.

    • theCryptofishist

      Evolutionary Biology is man’s way of arguing that the status quo is natural, so let’s not do anything about sexism, racism, or any other injustice.

      Just in case you’ve forgotten.

      • Carpe Vagenda

        No, I haven’t. It’s just interesting how the completely obvious and inarguable deterministic results of millions of (or seven thousand) years of the development of humans as a species change every year or two when MRAs get a wild hair.

        • TrixieB (formerly Grrrr…)

          If biology is our guide, then how do these paragons of humanity account for matriarchal elephant societies, or the emperor-penguin dads who do w/o food for two months in order to incubate the egg, or the lady-insects who practice sexual cannibalism? (Dissolving into lovely fantasies of Woosh and a mantis…)

    • Blacktop Autumn

      The world would benefit from sending out these super alpha guys out to hunt mammoth across the tundra with pointy sticks for a week. Not only will it keep them busy, but some are bound to be crushed or gored.

  • SeekingResistanceBarbie

    Those cretins must have gotten their ideas from old movies where the male lead is always wealthy. I’ve never thought of jewelry as anything other than another accessory or adornment. Maybe rich people have different values, but since 99% of us aren’t rich, it’s irrelevant, and so are the cretins.

    • Carpe Vagenda

      and at that, jewelry was a property specifically given to her use in a system where all other property passed to the man she married, and a form of financial security they could pass along to their daughters.

      • Sister the Resister

        I see we were thinking along similar lines.

        • Carpe Vagenda

          We do appear to :)

    • Sister the Resister

      There is the line of thinking that gifts of jewelry – for a woman of Another Era, in which she did not have to work, and her husband was upper middle class or better – were a way for a woman to have her own financial assets should said husband kick the bucket or turn into a cad who abandons her. Which kind of makes sense, in the context of upper middle class or better and a traditional Dude Brings in the Bacon / Woman Makes the House life. Doesn’t apply to very many other people, though.

  • clairence

    Until this moment, I’d always considered jewelry as adornment, not a reward for performance. I had never realized that jewelry was an indication that a woman was pleasing a man. I guess I learned something today. Thanks, Wonkette.

    • theCryptofishist

      Me, I get all emotional about conflict diamonds, and Swarovski is fine, because of Austria, and Central Europe, and crazy people living in a culture populated by ergot hallucinations. And I don’t need jewels and beads either, that’s so not the point of a marriage.

        Isn’t it about downplaying the Adam’s apple? That’s a piece I picked up from drag queens, but chokers were all the rage with the (bio)girls in my teens and early 20s too (we’re talking late 70s, early 80s era).

        • Blacktop Autumn

          Likely so.

          They’re “in” in general too. I know I’m just likely to drift into a “professional teacher” and “I’m home comfy” dichotomy on clothing.

      They were fashionable when I had a few fucks to give about fashion, back in the mid 90s. I never wore one then on account of them choking me. I reckon I was hanged as a witch in a past life coz I can’t be doing with anything on my neck at all.
      So my opinion is the opposite to yours, however… I would quite like those surfer bead necklaces to come back for men. They were worn by the sexiest lads…

When I told him to fuck off, he called me a troll. In further convo, he seemed like maybe not the worst guy in the world, but something’s been nagging me about that name.

    • The Wanderer

      It’s an allusion to the red pill – blue pill conceit in the movie The Matrix.

    • Count Awesome

      I think it’s a “Matrix” thing.

          Only to the douchebros. Like most things they do, it’s completely unnoticed outside their bubble.

          • Blacktop Autumn

            The irony being that there’s a (not unreasonable) school of thought that the Matrix is about being trans and transitioning since both Wachowskis transitioned.

            There are broad ranges along all sorts of axes in the trans-communities, but I think the preferred understanding would be that they were never even male to begin with.

          • TrixieB (formerly Grrrr…)

            The irony is that these self-identified redpill-ers are always conservatives, people who *don’t* see life as it is — they’re too afraid of the complexity of the human experience to participate or even admit its validity, so they cling to ( = want to conserve) a halcyon, highly structured past that never actually existed.

          • alwayspunkindrublic

            Well said. It’s always nostalgia for a past that never existed, right? Or at least a past that doesn’t feel to sentimental to people who couldn’t use certain water fountains and women who had a good chance to die during childbirth.

            I’d buy you jewelry if you did that, because it would please me.

          • Shanzgood

            I don’t really wear jewelry, just earrings and a little silver ring my daughter gave me a couple of years ago. I prefer practical things, like car detailing and maybe pressure washing the siding.

    https://www.propublica.org/article/white-house-power-player-jared-kushner-keeping-parts-of-real-estate-empire

    Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and the heir to a family real estate empire, has emerged as perhaps Donald Trump’s closest adviser. A near-constant presence by Trump’s side, his portfolio includes business, tax, political, and foreign policy matters.

    Kushner has divested ownership of a number of Kushner Companies businesses and one large Manhattan office building, the White House spokesperson said. But the White House and a Kushner Companies spokesman declined to say what Kushner is keeping and what he has given up.

    Kushner’s decision to keep some of his business, ethics lawyers say, raises questions about how he will recuse himself from government matters that could affect his own bank account.

  • mancityRed6

    I just can’t.
    I made it so far into the video and I just can’t.
    The engagement ring I gave back to my parents is my grandmother’s. There’s even dates on the box of ’37-’39.
    I won’t buy another.
    Did Roooooosh not get the memo that the girls in his neighborhood don’t like the massive brush on his face?

    • Carpe Vagenda

      I got engaged back when south african diamond mines were still a thing (and I don’t wear jewelry) so my engagement present was an LL Bean trail watch and some daisies.

      • mancityRed6

        I didn’t buy the first ex’s ring (she did, for reasons I can’t explain) and I didn’t buy the second’s, but I made damn sure to get it out of the house.

            True. And maybe the powers that be thought my future spouse (whoever they may be) deserves a bigger gemstone. It was an awfully small diamond. ;)

          • Tania

            The size of the diamond doesn’t mean a thing. The future spouse will possibly have a sentimental ring that has been passed down through generations. You might find an estate piece to bring that sentiment back. As someone who isnt really in to marriage I wear both my grandmothers engagement rings around my neck. As with other sentimental pieces I am going to give to cousin or god daughter along with fabulous tales of the amazing woman my grandmother was.

      The only way I can explain the beard thing is that they ran out of “Kick Me” signs at the Loser Store.

      THAT. Thank you. Their inability to see what everyone else sees (i.e., their own ludicrousness, their contradictory stances, the naked naked infantile emotional NEED oozing from every pore — a neediness that’s the hallmark of emotional immaturity and instability) — THAT is what makes him, Trump, and every member of Trump’s circle identifiable as mentally ill. Not their repulsive viewpoints, but their absolute and pathological absence f self-awareness.

    I stress the pairing of man and movement because, in my view, there has been too much focus on the psychological/psychiatric aspects of the man, and too little social-psychological focus on the movement. After all, the nation has never lacked for narcissistic personalities, even those of the megalomaniacal fabulist variety; yet until January 20 of this year none of them had ever gotten anywhere near the Oval Office. Trump is endlessly interesting from a clinical point of view, true, but the movement is no less so. It is also potentially more important as we look ahead, counting off the years to come, since it may outlast Trump’s own White House tenure. Let me start here with the man and, except for a very light hint, leave comment on the movement for another time.

  • mancityRed6

    Strangely enough, meeting the ex at 3 to hand over the title to the Mazda. I haven’t seen her or the pups since I left. I really don’t know how this should make me feel.
    Going to my boy Clarkson’s house after to watch the game. Maybe if I focus all my energies on KU I’ll forget about my failings as a man.

        • Jennifer R

          Play online with something like fantasy grounds. It handles a good bit of the math for you and everyone rolls virtual dice that have public results (unless a secret roll is called for then there is a special part you roll in so only you and the DM see).

          • mancityRed6

            one of the things I saw a few months ago for VR was a virtual D&D game. not the graphics but the idea of it intrigues me

          • Jennifer R

            Yeah this is more of a play space. You have a chat window and a menu for quick access to various rules. The rest is a place where the DM can send you pictures of the areas and maps that you can move a token around on.

          • Shanzgood

            Of course you would know this!

            I haven’t played D&D since prolly as long ago as mancity. My boyfriend was the DM. We played D&D with friends and then chess all night and I beat his chess-club-geek ass. He was mad so no sex and I walked all the way home at 7am. Asshole.

          • Shanzgood

            I wasn’t that big into it so I have no idea. It was prolly about 1987-1988 so. I’m still in touch with the XBF on FaceBorg if you need more info.

    http://www.the-american-interest.com/2017/02/25/trumps-ratings-slump-in-russia/

    One of the most egregious television propagandists, Irada Zeinalova, who had been effusive in her praise for Trump in the previous weeks, let loose on her show on February 20: “Trump started falling back on old positions, and even using the rhetoric of Obama’s cabinet.” She then addressed the American President directly: “Not that we trusted you all that much, Comrade Donald. Let’s be realistic: the only common ground for us now is fighting terrorism. Because we are already engaged in a fight with each other that is quite intense.”

    The Kremlin’s pivot on Trump reached its apex of ridiculousness in Russia’s Orwellian post-truth reality when Putin’s favorite propagandist, Dmitry Kiselyev, a host of the popular show “News of the Week” who has been sanctioned by both the United States and the EU, was accused by a Russian Duma member of “Trumpomania” and of plotting against Russia. A high-profile United Russia party member named Eugeny Fedorov organized a protest against Kiselev in front of the TV star’s office. A dozen people held placards screaming “Kiselev, you are a Trumpomaniac”, “No to the Trump cult in our media” and “Putin is our President”.

Understand that wgen she cooks a meal for you it is polite to get your man ass in the kitchen and do the damn dishes for her after the meal.

    Since the election of President Trump, Republican lawmakers in at least 18 states have introduced or voted on legislation to curb mass protests in what civil liberties experts are calling “an attack on protest rights throughout the states.”

    From Virginia to Washington state, legislators have introduced bills that would increase punishments for blocking highways, ban the use of masks during protests, indemnify drivers who strike protesters with their cars and, in at least once case, seize the assets of people involved in protests that later turn violent. The proposals come after a string of mass protest movements in the past few years, covering everything from police shootings of unarmed black men to the Dakota Access Pipeline to the inauguration of Trump.

    Funny how idiots like this think that presents are given as rewards. Coz I’ve been given and have given loads of gifts over the years and every single one of them has been a token of love and/or affection and not a reward for bowing to gender norms.

    • BadKitty904

      They confuse “payment” with “present”.

      • TJ Barke

        They all have this sort of pseudo anthropological mindset, wherein presents are the same thing as payments. They think they’re being scientific.

    All of the women that I have been with for any significant amount of time, with one exception, have at least a four-year college degree. It just turned out that way. Smart gals turn me on, dammit! I don’t want to feel like there is something wrong with me because of that. Criminy!

  • Well, I for one think that everybody would be much happier if they gave me a thousand bucks! And, I am so totally willing to put this to a scientific test. Here’s how: everybody send me a thousand bucks, and then post about your relative level of happiness afterwards.

    “what society has always deemed an outward sign that a woman is successfully pleasing a man—jewelry.”

    Oh shit, I’ve been jewelry-ing wrong all these years. I always thought it was something you bought for yourself or someone else because you like the way it looks on you/them and it makes you both happy.

    • BadKitty904

      Then why do “manly men” like Roosh wear jewelry? Same reason?

      • To prove that they are monetarily capable of providing jewelry, of course. Wimmins need an outside sign to activate the blow-job centers of their brains. It’s simple biology, really.

      But that equation (problems with other people) doesn’t apply, bc he doesn’t see women as people. They’re just his *due* — they’re things, fleshy robots, caregivers — a combo of sexy fuckhole, womb, and housecleaner. He and his ilk are mad as hell because it’s not 1950 anymore — they’re furious that women have almost gained “full person” status and pretty much have financial autonomy; the jerkwads are furious that they actually have to engage in any kind of mutual needs-meeting with women. It isn’t all that far removed from a Taliban-esque view.

  • ariel_gee_398

    My grandmother had, at best, a couple of years of formal schooling. Oddly enough, this lack of education didn’t mean that she was happy to be considered chattel by my grandfather. My grandfather even helped out around the house.

          I’ve been kinda following it, too, and it does look from some of the comments as if it’s being framed as another Sanders vs. Clinton.

    I find it odd that a strong and dominating man can’t find a woman who wants to be dominated by him. Isn’t there a website for that? Is he just as bad at being dominant as he is at life?

    It’s really never had bupkiss to do with pleasing a man. In fact, there was a time where men wore more jewelry than women because ove-jeweled women were considered hussies.
    So there is that!

    • MeerkatsRMammals

      I am a lady. I am a big fan of jewelry. I’ve been buying my own since I started working. What’s the big deal?

      • Mehmeisterjr

        It is no big deal in the real world.

        In these guy’s hallucinatory world, it’s a big deal. I have no idea why.

        • TrixieB (formerly Grrrr…)

          Because it’s a ritual from an era he cherishes (pre-1965-ish), when virtually all women were financially dependent on Hubby. Jewelry-as-reward is almost a trope from that era (I watch a lot of classic movies), and it’s a very layered message: “I, Hubby, buy you glittery shit that you wear to show the world how prosperous we (I) are. And to show the world that I’m rewarding you for being a good wife, so world sees that I keep you in line, so world is aware that I have big balls, big balls.”
          ….. On a more sinister level, these jewels have material value but Wife can’t really access it, because even if she sells them so she can leave Hubby and strike out on her own — she can’t. It’s 1950, she probably has no skills, but even if she has skills, who will hire a runaway wife? (How awful to wear the jewels, theoretically own the jewels, but not have access to their value.) Finally (and also sinister), jewel-as-gift isn’t so different from payment left on the bedside table.
          ….. Relic of a long and terrible time of female dependency. Which makes Roosh, like, super-hard.

      • BrianW

        Working AND buying your own stuff? SHAMELESS HUSSY!!!!1!!
        Oh wait, my wife does the same thing? (cue Emily Latella voice) Never Mind.

    • TrixieB (formerly Grrrr…)

      Respectfully, there’s a little more to it. When women were dependent on men for survival, it was improper for a man to give costly gifts to any woman, even his betrothed — nothing significant until after the wedding. And then there were the milestone gifts (costly jewelry on the birth of each child).
      ….. Doosh, sadly, is correctly identifying something dreadful about the past — that when men gave their wives jewelry for “no reason,” it was because the little woman had been especially good in some way. But it’s creepy to any rational person today, and Doosh’s obvious boner over this archaic ritual of dependence, and his petulance over its disappearance, is nauseating.

            The circumstances of his murder are also not entirely clear, since the participants and would-be participants were liars of Trumpian proportions.

            A point in his favor: He opposed WWI.

            A point against him: Once the war started anyway, he favored Germany.

    I think he’s right. Clearly women should not be educated, certainly not to the level at which they gain law degrees.

It’s quite impossible that she would have made as good a president as Donald Trump.

  • Angela Ruzzo

    Gee, this reminds me of a day in 1992 when I was shopping for a wedding gift for a friend’s third marriage, and I suddenly thought “Why am I buying her a third set of china? She already got two sets from her first two marriages?” and this segued into another thought, which was “Why am I still using the inexpensive dishware and towels and bedding that I bought at Sears after I got my first low-paying job 14 years ago, when I have no intention of ever getting married and therefore will never receive better stuff as free wedding gifts? What am I waiting for?”

    The answer was I had been too frugal to go out and buy new stuff or give myself permission to spend my own money on new housewares because the old stuff, which was no longer my taste, was still perfectly usable. This is a common problem for the children of people who grew up during the Great Depression – they can be ingrained with frugality and not replace anything until it literally breaks or falls apart.

    The next week I bought all new towels, bedding, silverware, glassware, pots and pans and dishware. I think I spent about $3000, which is about $5500 today. Laura Ashley was having a 70% off sale that week, which was very convenient, and there was an upscale outlet mall near my house, which was also convenient, otherwise god knows what it all would have cost. Jesus, did it feel good. I have rarely done anything that felt that good. It was better than sex.

    Then, after Hurricane Katrina, I got to do it again, but it wasn’t as much fun the second time around.

    • Red Bird Ω

      I had the same epiphany a couple years ago. Being frugal is nice but sometimes you can fool yourself into thinking that you’re happy when you aren’t.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        It’s a very liberating epiphany. Life is short, and being too frugal means denying yourself some rewarding experiences, often until it is too late.

        Losing everything in a disaster is also unexpectedly liberating. For a week I owned nothing other than what was in my car. I could have picked myself up and gone anywhere, which was a surprisingly liberating feeling. Being free of “stuff” was eye-opening.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            I’m glad you were lucky. I read about this putty product called “Quake Hold!”. Apparently Museums use it to stick things to shelves so they won’t fall over during earthquakes. I found it interesting that you can buy it at Home Depot, but only on the West Coast, not in the Midwest, so I had to order it online. It works very well – it keeps my cats from knocking things over, which is one of their favorite occupations.

          • The Librarian

            Yes! I use that for certain objects in my book case so they don’t move. And yes, got it at my local Home Depot.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            I live near the New Madrid Fault, which hasn’t had a Big One since 1812. I lived for a while much closer to the fault line, and one day all the dishes in my kitchen cabinet started rattling. I put my hand on the stack of plates and they stopped rattling. I let go and they started rattling again. This went on for about 1-1/2 minutes. So I called the Earthquake Center in New Madrid to find out if there had been a mild quake, and they said “Oh, no, that must have been a sonic boom.” They lied. A month later they reported a magnitude 1.1 earthquake for that day. Why did they bother to lie about it?

          • The Librarian

            That is strange. Maybe someone was asleep at the switch and they weren’t on top of things?

            I think they are just told to lie to any member of the public who calls so there won’t be a panic. People can be very stupid, as the last election has shown us all.

          • The Librarian

            People not knowing will end up creating a worse panic. Which reminds me to check my earthquake bin for out of date food.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            You just triggered a memory of something I had forgotten all about. When I was a very little child, the Cold War was at its height, and a neighbor dug a Fallout shelter in his back yard and stocked it with all kinds of canned goods. Then he forgot to replace the expired foods for about 5 years. He actually seemed to be ANNOYED that we hadn’t had a nuclear holocaust so he could use the food, but instead had to throw it away. Frugal Midwesterners get all bent out of shape when they have to throw things away, especially food.

          • The Librarian

            I don’t like the waste either, but it beats botulism or listeria.

          • ahughes798

            I’ve been down that way! I went to a place near the fault where you could stamp on the ground and water would come up..which indicates very unstable soil. Fun Fact of the day if I’m remembering correctly:Lakes Erie and Huron were created by earthquakes. A fault line runs SW from that area, to the New Madrid Fault. At New Madrid, it intersects with a fault line coming in from the NW called the “Missouri Gravity Low,”(which will be the name of my cow-punk band). I’m hoping the Gubmint is smart enough to not EVEN think about allowing fracking any way near there!

          • ahughes798

            Yeah, they sold it in the Best Buy last time I was out there. It didn’t hit me ’til about 20 minutes later why it was sold there, and not here in the Midwest. It wasn’t called “Quake Hold,” so there were no obvious clues. I’ve been looking for some because I’m sick of the cats ruining ceramics.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            Sometimes it is called Museum Putty. They sell several different kinds now, including one especially for flat screen TVs! I may have to buy some of that, because one cat likes to sit on the glass-topped TV stand and jump to the fireplace mantle, and this makes the TV shake, which can’t be good for the TV long-term.

          • ahughes798

            That’s what it’s called! Museum Putty! Thanks much for the link.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            You’re welcome. And may I say I hope you don’t REALLY need it any time soon. I remember watching TV footage of the Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989 where they were trying to get people out of the pancaked freeways. It was not a pretty sight, I felt sick about it, and I can’t forget those images.

          • ahughes798

            My sister from NorCal was visiting when that happened, I think we were watching the World Series when it happened? I remember the picture on the TV just went black. Unless that was a different devastating earthquake.

            I just remember it took them 5 days to get to one guy, but he didn’t make it. It was one of the worst things I’ve ever seen, and I don’t like going on any kind of bridge in California.

          • Angela Ruzzo

            I remember them saying that they got one guy out after 4 days, and he had survived by drinking rain water he caught in a cup. That was when I learned you can live for 3 weeks or longer without food, but you can’t live more than 4 days without water.

            I kept thinking of all the people who were trapped in their cars, possibly badly injured and in pain, dying slowly and alone. I couldn’t sleep for thinking about it.

          • ahughes798

            I felt so badly for the people who were trapped. I can’t really imagine anything worse.

        • Kerlyssa

          i own nothing i couldn’t pack in my car or leave behind w/o caring. i know nice stuff is nice, but yeah, the freedom is amazing

          • Angela Ruzzo

            I sometimes think back to my very first full-time job and my very first, tiny apartment. I owned a second-hand bed that my parents gave me, chests of drawers from my childhood bedroom, a sofa and kitchen table from a second hand store, a second hand TV, an armchair my parents gave me, and cast-off kitchenware from my parent’s kitchen. Some clothes. A bicycle. An old car with no payments (and gas was 50 cents a gallon). No credit cards. No internet. No cable TV. No cell phone. No computer. No debts. My group health insurance was free. I don’t think I have ever been that independent and free of obligations again. It took me 30 years and a hurricane to figure things out and get back to basics.

        • The Flaming Carrot

          I’d feel better if I got rid of about 3/4 of the stuff in my house. But it’s not all mine, so all I can do is nag, like a fishwife. Private property rights and all that.

      I love this story (the first part, not the Katrina part)!

    • janetintexas

      This is the most inspiring thing I have ever read today. God bless you.

    • Lambsendbeds

      First, all the upvotes for realizing that you deserved to have some nice things at long last.
      Second, Laura Ashley! I LOVE Laura Ashley!
      Third, who the HELL expects, much less registers for gifts for their third wedding?!? When I got married the second time my invitations read ” The pleasure of your company is the only gift we want.” I wouldn’t want my friends and family to pony up for me a second time.
      Fourth, that really sucks about Katrina. Buying all new stuff because everything you own has been destroyed takes the joy out of shopping. I’ve done it twice: once after a fire and once after my apartment got flooded with three feet of water ( a basement apartment, five feet of snow melting in one day, and a non functioning sump pump. Don’t ask). I was young both times and didnt have a lot of nice things, but I didn’t have renter’s insurance either.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        Gee, I’m sorry to hear about your having to replace things TWICE. It is surprising what you can save from a flood – dishes, silverware, glassware are all filthy, but reclaimable – but a fire ruins everything and you can’t get that smell out of anything. One of my friends lost her house in a fire, and she scrubbed her glasses three times, and they still smelled of smoke. Many things that did not burn up had to be thrown away.

        • ahughes798

          It’s amazing, isn’t it. The smell gets in the glass! I kept one ceramic mug from the fire I had, and 20 years later, I can still get a whiff of smoke, once in a while.

      • The Flaming Carrot

        I like your invitations. I used to buy better stuff for my coworkers’ second weddings than I had myself.

    • kareemachan

      Diamonds leave me “meh”. Okay, there was an apricot-colored one that was pretty, but overall, meh.

      In fact, if I was single, there are about a gazillion things that would float my boat more than jewelry. Try flowers. Fixing something. Making dinner. Weeding the garden. Cleaning the car.

      A guy who is fixated on giving a woman jewelry is 1) moronic (or, “moranic”), 2) unintelligent, 3) unimaginative, and 4) moronic.

        Brut? By Faberge?

  • Bill Diaz

    Dunno, but those idiots may not be as wrong as many think they are. Personally and historically, my treatment of women is exemplary, but have the misfortune of being old in a place that2 ex wives) hates olds. People say I am good looking, funny, intelligent, a great cook, a decent singer and my ex-wives would all testify that it wasnt my conjugal skill set that was deficient (2 of them).

    But as a cripple and an old, I am invisible to women. They will say ‘Thank you for your service’, but look through me as if I am invisible and otherwise worthless. My former GF made requests of me to help her (I did) and then she turned around and punished me with a subject I asked for her to NEVER bring up, ever.

    My ‘best friend’ (after having my career destroyed, my health ruined and everything taken from me) a woman and says she loves me, lol. It is hilarious. I am dying a slow, painful horrifying death as we speak (starvation, dehydration, pancreatitis and chronic pain). I have ask my ‘friend’ foor help and she has told me ‘no’ repeatedly for tasks that I wouldnt hesitate to ask a man to perform (ie, nothing at all sexual), then tells me that she only wants to help me and if there is anything she can do for me.

    It would be funny if my life werent so otherwise sad and tragic.

    I literally dont have a single friend in the world that I can ask a favor of and have a reasonable chance of having the task completed and it has been that way since my former employer, the University of Vermont, killed me, threatened my wife’s job (we got divorced) and made me homeless for the first time in 2011.

    Important note: If you are going to be homeless, do it in a Mercedes, less cops roust you from parking and sleeping in your car.

    Before, it was simple, if I was single, women asked me out. Now I am 51 and a cripple with a walker and it has been more than 2 years since anyone has held my fucking hand. I can understand the frustration and anger of those assholes, because I am not an asshole in any way shape or form, but am no less a leper for being kind, funny, considerate or anything else women supposedly want. I even have a ‘6 pack’ for an abdomen, courtesy of both starvation and my time as a paratrooper, but it might as well be a drunkard’s buddha belly for all the difference it makes.

    I have a PhD, an IQ above 160, am a 6 footer, a gourmet cook, a published author and have been on the news for my volunteer work for veteran’s suicides. I spend a day a week at the homeless shelter and am helping to cook a dinner for the veteran’s transitional home (my former address) later today. I am a regular at the library and the coop and everyone knows me on sight and welcomes me, because they know I will make them laugh.

    I am more alone than I have ever been in my life, including my time as a homeless, disabled vet.

    Are there faults I possess? I dress like a homeless person, but did back when I was an NIH funded Principle Investigator as well. I have a severe case of PTSD that is what ends my relationships, but if the women in my life wouldnt do what I have asked them not to (open the door to my ‘prsion’ when I close it, it would never be an issue, but none of them seem to know what PTSD is or why you should avoid triggering someone with it, despite years of patient coaching. I live on a fixed income from my military disability, but can cook meals easily worth 10 times what is spent on materials and can make a dinner for 2 (with wine) for under $15. This isnt mac and yak, but steak, shrimp and baked brie en croute.

    I am not an asshole and have been a feminist my entire adult life. My preference is strong intelligent capable women, both were professionals working at medical schools when we married. People in high school thought I was gay, because of the purse and the earring (only the purse is still worn) and no one would mistake me for a macho chowderhead.

    I dont expect anything directly for my kindness, it is something done for its own sake with no expectation of reward. Stochastically, it was my belief that ultimately, the law of averages would pay off, someone would see the gold under my crud and there would be a person who would find value in me still. My hope was that another person would touch me sometime before I died, but as that date draws closer, there is no chance that my wish will come true.

    But as an invisible person, there is no chance that anyone will see me.

    I am not a jerk, not a rapist, not a misogynist or a ‘pick up artist’. I am a progressive liberal who served his country in war and suffered severe TBI back when people thought that was a VW badge. But it is much like justice, what difference is it if I act good or ill if the system is corrupt? Perhaps if I was an asshole and PUA, I could ‘neg’ and maybe find someone who would be willing to touch me. The very idea is revolting to me, but in the cold comfort of my lonely moral superiority, wondering if anyone will find my body before I start to smell, it has some merit.

    Have a great day!

      I’m not much use for anything but throwing money at people, so if you need a hand financially I’ll help out.
      I feel like I’m being patronizing by making suggestions, so tell me to fuck off if you want. Are you in a position where you could have pet? I know they won’t solve everything but animals have a positive effect and are excellent bed warmers. Assuming they don’t take over the bed or sleep on your head.

      • Bill Diaz

        It isnt money that is needed, I have buckets of cash on tap. It is simple things that I used to be able to do myself before neuro-muscular ataxia, stroke and rhabdomyelysis. If I had a friend in the world, it would get done for a couple of beers and a pizza. It isnt the money, it is living a life with no one to share it with and for no reason to even want to fight back against the pain and misery that is the problem.

        The day before Thanksgiving, I weighed 235. This morning I weighed 190. I have about a week left before I am dead or in intensive care. Not a good time for a pet and certainly not a reason to live.

        Thank you for the advice though and ‘fuck off’ would be an inappropriate response to your kindly reply.

        Have a great day!

        • Tiny kaiju

          I am so sorry to hear this. Is there nothing can done? Palliative care or some similar.? The hospice nurses I used to work with were good people. They helped patients and families to make the transition with grace.It may not change the outcome there must be something that can bring you peace.
          This sounds fatalistic, I’m sorry. May the Mother of Us All bless you and keep you close.

          • Bill Diaz

            There is plenty that could have been done and still things that might be done, but it requires competent physicians and a willingness to listen to me, lol. That means I am going to die.

            The cause of death will be ‘multi-system organ failure’ due to malnutrition and blood chemistry. If I were the attending physician, I would live. I wont be and if the doctor was American, I would definitely die. The only chance I have is if Canadian docs are both sane and competent.

            They need to put me on 500ml/hr D5W backed by alternate saline on a 2 hour morphine schedule (to bring my pain and blood pressure under control. The last time my blood pressure was measured, it was 230/112, ~50 mm Hg over stroke range. That is from pain, despite the morphine taken 3 times daily. I dont think it works because my GI tract doesnt.

            My weight has been sliding since Thanksgiving and they still havent contacted me about the surgery I need to stay alive since my last stay at the WRJ VA 2.5 weeks ago. I told my GI doc a month ago that I had 6 weeks and it looks my estimate was right.

            No wonder they gave me a full scholarship to med school…*smh*

            Have a great day!

          • Tiny kaiju

            Have you been given TPN (total parenteral nutrition) before? It’s very useful for malnutrition when your gut isn’t functional. You can even use it at home as a 12 hr infusion. IV fat too. It’s easier to do than putting in a feeding tube. Also inquire about fentanyl patches. Since you have been on opiates for a while you are a good candidate. It takes a while to get a steady level but once you get the right dose, they are helpful, again if your gut isn’t working.

    • kareemachan

      I have empathy/sadness/sympathy for you. I will also add what I witnessed when my mother had early-onset Alzheimers. My parents had friends. Lots and lots and lots of friends. But when this happened, they…. melted away. And I can’t say that it was all because they weren’t real friends, but people have trouble dealing with things that are uncomfortable and remind them of death. It’s not an excuse to be proud of and it effing HURT, but it happens. I’ve tried over time to forgive, to deal with it, to not think about it.

      I don’t have an answer for you, but I honestly do feel for you. If we lived near you (we don’t live near *anybody*, honest. Unless you can see light from Victoria BC from your house) I could at least send over a loaf of homemade bread or something.

      I wish I had more answers. I wish I could make things better. I would send prayers your way except I’m not sure of their efficacy. Crap. I wish I could express myself better and maybe that way comfort somebody. So please consider this the best hug I can offer, being an imperfect person.

      • William_C_Diaz

        My former best friend offered me a ‘pity hug’ and my response was to tell her I will not be visiting her in Montreal when I go to die at McGill.

        I may be a worthless cripple, but have enough pride left to be horrified at the idea. Thank you for the offer, but a pity hug is just as painful and patronizing as patting me on the head.

        Have a great day!

        • Andrea Jacobsen

          Dude, you have a giant chip on your shoulder, that is why no one wants to be around you. You constantly refer to yourself as a cripple and say no one sees you, but if someone shows compassion and attempts to understand you call it pity. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say you have more than just PTSD going on.

    • MissNomer

      You sure are hypercritical of women for a man who claims so loudly and so often that he is a feminist and not a jerk or an asshole. According to you, women are at fault for not having the good sense/compassion/whatever to do whatever it is you wish they would do where you are concerned. You’re no better than Roosh; you’re both blaming women for your unhappiness.

      Guess what, champ. It is no woman’s duty to make you happy. That is your job.

      In fact, your own list of things that you think should attract women does not indicate to me that you have ever actually listened to a woman for more than five minutes. The liberal women I know don’t care about a man’s money, educational attainment, IQ (as long as it’s over 100), height, cooking skills, literacy, or volunteer work. They care about being heard. You don’t listen.

      • Bill Diaz

        Really, go fuck yourself. You could have bothered to read my posting history, or maybe googled ‘bill diaz vermont’ and found out a little about me, Again fuck you and the pompous horse you rode in on. If you can see or understand my point, fine, ask questions etc. But for you to question my honesty and integrity as a LONG time poster here without cause gets you a double ‘fuck you’.

        The problem isnt that I dont listen, it is that my wives have a bad habit of ignoring me during the multiple discussions prior to my leaving about why you dont trigger someone with PTSD and how to avoid that. Of course, they did exactly what I asked them not to (both being told by friends that I was engaging in ‘avoidance behavior’ rather than ‘severe anxiety attack’) and I did what I told them I would do.

        So, after being married since med school, 6 years ago I found myself crippled, unemployed and divorced, because the med school I worked for at the time threatened her job.

        It has only been recently that dating has been an interest or an option. I have a case of pancreatitis that is killing me that was treated for the first time in 5 years in October. That let me eat, stand on function almost like a real person.

        At first, my decision was to not date, that it wasnt fair of me to saddle someone with a cripple, then something happened while taking my best friend to have our toenails painted. I wont explain it, just to say that I was able to give myself permission to allow someone to touch me again. The woman who painted my toes was an attractive recently divorced mother of 2 kids around the age of my own. She asked me out, but my last night in town was the next day and she had plans. I actually felt bad, because normally I use a walker to get around, but on that day was using my friend as my walker, so she didnt know I was a cripple.

        So yeah, Im a pick up artist asshole who blames women, because all of them feel guilty about possibly deceiving a woman that they arent a cripple.

        So when I came back to Burlington, I decided to start looking. If sex or having a ‘woman’ was the goal, that would have been solved. Burlington is a college town and any number of young ladies have made it known to me that ‘age is just a number’, but I am looking for someone at least in my ballpark age wise, preferably with kids, career, etc. 22 year old communication majors are appropriate for my son, not his father.

        In trying to meet women my age, it has become apparent to me that I am invisible, that my intellect, my humor, my accomplishments, none of those things matter if a woman sees my cripple wagon. Then she doesnt see me at all. All the women who have talked to me have done so when I was seated and them not seeing me enter.

        So the point was, since you missed it, that women have the same capacity for shallow, selfish, ignorant, despicable thoughtless as any of those MRA scumbags, you just tend to get on your high horses more though.

        And fuck you again, you presumptuous POS.

        Have a great day!

        • MissNomer

          And apparently you don’t read very well, either. Of course I read your posting history. Why do you assume otherwise? Your disdain for women comes across loud and clear there too.

          You’re no feminist, bro, and you are not kind, funny, or considerate. The single positive thing you’ve said about any woman is that she was attractive. You don’t even like women as human beings; you would just like to have one touch you.

          You (and Roosh) blame women for the fact that you are unhappy. According to you two, women are shallow, selfish, ignorant, despicable, and thoughtless, and they won’t do what you want them to. You think MRAs might be right.

          If women don’t like you, dude, it’s not because you’re a cripple. It’s because you are an asshole. Who doesn’t listen.

    • Nena

      This was a longer and more detailed version of the “Women reject me because I’m a nice guy” thing that I heard when I was dating before I met Hubby. I learned, as have most women in the dating pool, that guys who say this stuff are not actually nice guys. Dating them is more likely to result in having to change your phone number and email address than it is to result in a relationship.

      “…what difference is it if I act good or ill if the system is corrupt?” There is no “system”. There is no network of women that has decided that no one should date you.

      “Perhaps if I was an asshole…” That you think that coming down narrowly on the side of not engaging in PUA “negging” behavior makes you morally superior pretty much makes you an asshole.

      • Bill Diaz

        Not going to bother to write you a long post, just tell you to get fucked, you ignorant, presumptuous (I really like that word). Yes, you missed the point of the paraphrase, my entire point and decided to make a dog’s breakfast of the straw man construct you made of me.

        So since you missed the point of the quote, there is no point in pursuing this further.

        Have a great day!

        • Nena

          Oh, honey, it’s you who make yourself a dog’s breakfast. As for getting fucked, the problem seems to be that this is not something that’s happening to you. Perhaps if you’d check your ego – take a look at what you’re putting out there and consider how repellant women find that kind of whining – you’d stand a chance of it happening to you.

    • LadyLaz

      I am sorry for your troubles (physical stuff) but I remember you. You patronized the fuck out of me with your “above 160” IQ and called me ignorant while demonstrating you lacked knowledge over the success of hep c anti-viral treatment.

      I suppose I should be kinder but I grew up under the thumb of a very disabled mom who was also mean spirited. I don’t see being sick or disabled as much of an excuse for being a patronizing jerk, which is the face your showed me. And I wasn’t the only one to call you on the chain. Seriously, I remember it and it’s been months. That’s the impression you left.

      So yes (as I have found with the grey in my hair) as we get older we do become invisible. Women deal with it all the time. But I’d also say you might want to review the comments you have left here over the years and see how they might come across to members of the opposite sex.

      Now go tell me to fuck off.

      • MC Planck

        There is something about a _man_ complaining that being old makes him invisible to romantic partners. That something is… irony? Karma? Something like that.

      • Bill Diaz

        I will say ‘fuck off’, but only because you asked nicely. I will explain before logging and then will never come here again.

        I dont remember the exchange, but do vaguely remember you. Perhaps my explanation will suffice, honestly I dont care having bigger fish to fry.

        In September of last year, my life was over pretty much. I couldnt take the pain and was ready to die, my last ‘Hail Mary’ being my pending application for VA benefits based on the injury (TBI and temporary paralysis) that I suffered in Grenada in 83.

        Against all hope, they accepted me, just before the date I had scheduled for my end.

        Im not going to bother to tell you of the corrosive effect that years of untreated pain causes, if you dont know, there is no way to explain, If you do, there is no need.

        My first VA hospital visit was 17 days and they almost let me leave WRJ without treating me, but won that battle by eating before they discharged me, which finally got the GI consult needed. The procedure took 15 mins, recovery an hour and in less time than it takes to watch a movie, my life had completely changed. My blood pressure, which was over 200 systolic the entire time, was now 130/70 that the pain crushing me was no longer. I dont even check it anymore, except at the doctor’s office, because I dont want to know. If it ‘feels like I am going to die’, that means my systolic is above 230 and that point is reached at least 5 times a day currently.

        So for the first time in 5 years, early last October, I was alive. Before then, I could stand for 15 mins and had to lie down for hours. I could walk about 250 yds on flat and level ground, but couldnt walk up a hill and had to drive to get up one. That is funny because I live in Burlington Vermont, it is nothing but hills. During the worst part, when I couldnt even drive, I had to pay a cab $5 to take me up a hill.

        Now I am on my feet 15 hours a day.

        The first thing I did when alive was to put an ad in the local bar rag, based on the horror I felt reading the VA Suicide report and my own experiences as a 20 some odd crippled vet who had to teach himself to read and write again at 18 because traumatic brain injury didnt exist then. It wasnt the last time I have had to do that, it was required in 2011 and 2014 when something horrible happened in the hospital each time.

        They had put the money in my acct in July, but before then my anxiety and fear wouldnt even allow me to get my mail, so had no idea that there was money or that the VA had accepted me. When I came back, with the pain gone, I could

        • LadyLaz

          No. Because I don’t see why being a vet excuses you for being a jerk either. And you get free medical service through the va.

          News flash. Many people are sick and deal with chronic pain. I’ve been holding my sisters hand as her twin – the boy she has know since kindergarten and who has been in my life since I was a baby – is dying a slow agonizing death in dic., full liver failure and full kidney failure. He lays in a sterile room bleeding out and still spoke to me warmly when I called. A man with demons – they’ve caught him he’s only 47 – but a ready laugh, a ready smile. He doesn’t patronize other people. He doesn’t use his health as a cudgel on other people.

          Ignore me. It’s fine. But I am likely one of the few people who isn’t intimidated at the idea of being “mean” to a very sick or disabled person. Being sick, even very sick, is no excuse for being a jerk. If that is what you are being, that is why you don’t have people around you.

          And stop blaming women like we are special evils. It is human nature to not want to hang around people who are condescending or mean.

      The problem there is that those white women are much more likely to look like Kim Davis than like Tomi Lahren.

    Do women even like jewelry? I know it’s a common trope but none of the women I’ve known other than my mom have been actually interested in jewelry.

    • HarpyLibtart

      I think it’s more a conditioning thing…women collected jewelry back in the day because they couldn’t work and that was one of the few valuables they were allowed to own outright and of course then men looked at this and went “oh, the little women love sparkly things, we should buy them that.”
      I personally don’t bother with it because I’m very cheap and most jewelry is terrible value for money…I’ll wear it if it’s given to me but honestly, I’d prefer a first edition book or something if we’re spending money for fun.

      • Jukesgrrl

        If Trump had his way wives wouldn’t even allowed to have their heads turned by sparkly things. He told Vanity Fair in 1990, ““I would never buy Ivana any decent jewels or pictures. Why give her negotiable assets?”

      I really didn’t have much use for it for the first 20 years of my married life. Didn’t even wear a wedding ring, as it could be hazardous in my job surroundings (manufacturing and electronics).

      Mrs Ideal still wears things, but they’re always something a little off-the wall. Earrings in the shape of succulents and dragonflies. Aged silver ginkgo leaf necklaces. Curly vine-like rings. That sort of thing.

    I don’t want to be better. I don’t want to be the best. Mediocre is perfectly fine. Don’t need anyone to have standards, I AM the standard. Me breathing should make you happy.”
