Man vs. woman future death competition apocalypse is now pending

2 Mar

And since it’s Women’s History Month, one task on our list is to make sure men are really getting the message that they are being fucked by women’s progress.

There is only so much success in the world to go around, and since men are losing out on some of that, they will become depressed and angry, reports BBC News.

The authors say men will struggle with the shift away from traditional male and female roles.

The Men’s Health Forum said male identity was bound up in employment.

One of the authors, Dr Boadie Dunlop from Emory University School of Medicine, said: “Women are almost twice as likely to develop major depressive disorder in their lifetime as men, but we believe this difference may well change in the coming decades.”

Hear that, men? You will now have to share in some of that major depression, be huge pussies like the rest of us frustrated humans out there.

I’m all for studies that examine how changing gender roles affect both sexes, but here’s the thing: this article is about how decreasing employment opportunity in the manufacturing and blue-collar sectors will negatively impact men’s mental health. That doesn’t sound like a problem with gender roles so much as a problem with unemployment and men earning fewer advanced degrees than women and our governments failing to help guarantee an even playing field for workers on a basic level.

Undoubtedly individual families with heterosexual married people in them will suffer consequences, but unemployment in and of itself does not guarantee gender role conflict between spouses, which is what the article seems to imply. I’m getting tired of these studies that show how men and women will probably all just kill each other soon when they start to realize their happiness is somehow in inverse relationship to one another.

The human race will no doubt wipe itself out sooner rather than later, but I doubt it will be from men and women rising up against each other to compete for jobs. Nope, pretty much they will probably just keep fucking and arguing over who did the dishes last.
