Your Professors Are Lying To You - II

II. Then there are all the attitudes you see taken up against men, how the professors always seem to do nothing but demonize them, that we’ve done nothing for centuries but scheme to ‘keep the women down!’ The great boogeyman ‘patriarchy’ must always be put in the ground. But a simple look at history renders all these notions absurd, there was no plan to ‘oppress’ women, it was just division of labor. Seriously, before machines it was all hard work, done best by guys, brute physical labor that women would not be long able to survive. And since there was no birth control women were pregnant all the time, not in a space for crushing work unless you want children to die, And given how many of them did before our modern medicine, you had to shelter the females or we’d be lost before life begins. Women did depend on the men for their protection and their cash, but men depended on women for a home and a future, in fact. This simple truth gets forgotten by the presence of the modern world, it’s easy to scream conspiracy, the way of the feminist churl. But are men the monsters that these damn professors all proclaim? We built this world that coddles them, that gives shelter to the insane. We’re the lion’s share of geniuses who move technology along, we’re the ones called to be soldiers to protect you all from the wrong. And we are half of the parents, and half the children dear to you, yet academics call us ‘toxic?’ Your professors are lying to you.
