    I still believe in the possibility of success in marriage. More marriages end because of out side influence then influence with in. Each day we choose either to remain or leave. No law's, or a piece of paper will bring about the effort it takes to live commitment. When two people have troubles, the last thing they should be doing is turning out ward for direction. How quickly we forget the day we decided to commit and the very reasons why. Regardless of adversity, I remain optimistic.

    Ha, ha, @Brian McKenzie, to all of us who have suffered through divorce, you've spoken the words we thought in anger, only to realize, once we start doing donuts in the living room, it won't be long before we're blowing our noses into shirt sleeves and leaving the seat down on the toilet just to piss on it. We can get by without women, just as women can get by without men, but my best friends are still women and, as I tell them, neither of us can fuck a bicycle (although something tells me you've tried). Wonderful satire, Brian. Now get your dick out of the spokes. We're in for a busy ride with everything that's happening today, but already women are breaking away from the feminist agenda, saying they'd rather have a ratty man than a feminist telling them everything will be great without men. They know it won't, we know it won't. Both sexes are here on this earth to compliment each other's weaknesses. The "Blame Game" will end.

    Brian, if I may make a suggestion — other than printing this out, then burning it — the correct spelling of “listical” is “listicle”, which would be much catchier to the eye in your title. To wit, “Listicles for Testicles”.

    I’d also suggest a sub-title, “Misogyny As Religion”.

    Thanks for offsetting the almost constant stream on the platform of honey-laced treacle. I find being provoked by satire far preferable to being lulled into somnambulence. Cheers!

I'd usually have a smart-ass comment for you, b ut I have to tell you, at the risk of pissing off every woman I know, you do have a point. I would, however, argue that sexual abuse tilts way to the male side, unless you have some stat to prove otherwise. I'm not sure what the percentage of women to men abusers would be but I would guess that it's in the area of 80-90% men. But your point is sorta kinda well taken.

    The cloud of despondence engulfing me right now is the reference to menopause as an affliction of sorts...

    "After reaching to the pinnacle of intellectual fertility, it is inevitable for all to experience cerebral menopause phase and perhaps, on that period they are incapable to judge their mental state where they do not have at all control of their traits and the external world."

    When in fact, menopause is Mother Nature's great awakening...A time of great intellectual clarity for women (and men) ...empowering...transformational and enlightening...We always have the power over our own choices...Unless we are talking about the unfortunate nature of mental illness...Which, in this case hardly seems the problem...

    Perhaps what is so disturbing here for this woman is the emergence of truth...The imposter has been unmasked...exposing all those internal demons...that in and of itself is a truly 'enlightening' experience...The question is...Who's the imposter?

    He got married. He hired a female. He suffered the consequences. He was accused - not convicted.
    Let this serve as a warning to all men that build a career, wealth, life and reputation down the path that includes women.
    MGTOW - We are keeping our time, money, attention, development, resources and genes to ourselves. We will not cater nor pander to the bad and the broken. The only sure way to avoid these situations is to not be there. They cannot accuse you of things you never did if you are never there to begin with. Opt-Out, Walk Away - it is the only solution.

    #5 @Debasish Majumder Alas, this story is common today as it's been throughout history. Power seems to unleash entitlement and a sense of invulnerability. I don't liken it to menopause because that is seen not only as a decline in fertility but also as decreased relevance for older women. I'm trying to fight that perception. But I do agree that power morphs the brain and there's a mental disconnect from societal values and a lack of comprehension of consequences. Everyone, especially the women, suffers while the man either protests, denies, or justifies the unacceptable behavior. The man, who is not stupid, seems to have entered a mindset for which I don't have a name and I do understand why you picked this label. What to do?

    Very deep @Debasish Majumder. I wonder how many men that attract money and even fame feel as though they are entitled to treat women as sexual objects? I have to think they feel justified, begin to believe their warped excuses and their sick way of life becomes their new norm? Its my hope that those who prey on women are held highly accountable, its never viewed as a new norm and the younger generation is so appalled that this will possibly effect change for the future.

    #25 Brian, you feeding the stereo type right here. First you do not have a qualified opinion about children, parenting or wives etc. You make fun of Disney's fictional characters that are actually based on reality somewhat. Yet you worship a fictional character that was created out of the mind of an addict.

    If you have no children, you can't even relate to your own parents.

    You have no business in creating policy that relates to family or children. Especially any policy relating to women,

    It is bad enough that you men have to role play as women to steal our grants, derail our progress, compete in our sports, and corrupt our children.

    Here you are creating a false stereotype about women. You don't even like women Not all women are gold diggers.

    Also, something you would not know about or care about... but men wanted a cheaper workforce so they talked women into entering it and leaving their children to the schools or daycare providers... basically strangers to raise. Then the lazy men couldn't even pick up the slack at home making us spread ourselves so thin. If we stayed at home to raise the children and put our career on hold, men didn't compensate us. But WE RAISED their future selves.

    So whatever. I'm so sick of this mental illness you call logic when it's just based on an extremely narrow and unqualified point of view. You are not smart you are limited, selfish and feeding the stereo type of men objectifying women.

    If you don't like women, you have no right to talk about them. Especially if you are not a parent of one.

    LMAO Paul, love it when they push Paul to rant!
    You were so right to enter that conversation. Chick 2 had issues. Many many many long term relationships have occurred between co-workers, nothing wrong with that! The only times it pissed me off was when married men came on to me, but I never ran to HR, I figured if it got too bad I'd use my knee in strategic spots or call their damn wife and ask her to stop her husband from making my life hell.
    Bet you look adorable with a beard! :-) Oh wait...Am I sexually harassing you with that statement?
    Speaking of which, let's turn this around; As a single woman for the majority of my life I'm sick and tired of men AND women assuming my friendliness is a come-on and I'm out to steal someone else's man. I have been publicly called out (in church for christ's sake) for talking to the father of my daughter's best friend, about our children!!!. Excuse me; I don't want you ugly ass husband!
    It needed to be said Paul and you did so very very well!! As someone who has been harassed but also dated colleagues; I applaud you! Chick #1 apparently has problems dealing with uncomfortable social situations...Like no one has ever before in the history of man has ever had to deal with a bit of awkwardness. PaLEASE!
    Childish Girl needs to grow up and Get the F*** over it, the poor guy's ego took a bruising with the turn down and now the B**** was advising to turn him into HR...Really

    Paul, Thank you! You made my day. Although there was a laugh in there I can say that there is more than a grain of truth on what the world has come to. As a speaker who can get passionate about Networking and Brand and Trust Based business development I often warn audiences that, "I've been told by some folks that I'm not socially correct. Some of what I have to say may offend some of you. But it will be the truth as I see it. If I piss you off, so be it. If I make some of you laugh with my observations that is okay by me. No matter what reaction you have you'll come out of here better off if you own your feelings. Ain't it great to get to the age where you really don't give damn what others think of you!

    Ah, well, @Kevin Pashuk, I had a sneaking suspicion nobody was thinking about me at all when I was constantly asked who I was and why was I hanging around the halls. Once they discovered I'd been working there 3 years, I ceased being a topic of conversation entirely—until it was decided I could be bluffing. When they found out I wasn't bluffing, I ceased being a topic of conversation entirely because I was boring. I've since told everyone I'm bluffing.#38

    When the Cops came, all they saw was a waist-up view. When questioned, the woman answered, "Yes, but if you stand on the kitchen counter, lean out holding the light fixture for balance, while holding this mirror over your head, you can see his junk!"

    #32 #33 -- This is a very touchy area in our post Anita Hill era. Many years ago, three of us guys in the sales dept were called into HR one day. We were being accused for harassment because of our "locker room" jokes and stories. The accuser was in a cubicle adjacent to mine.

    We immediately changed our location for these discussions. . . . and the accuser **followed** us and reported us again, saying she could still hear our stories and jokes.

    I caught her one day standing on her chair so she could eavesdrop. . . and then reported her to HR. All charges in our files were removed. She was sent to therapy and anger management sessions.

    Geeze.

    Might be a bit off-topic but the worst way to dump someone is when the someone is living in a foreign country. I had to quit my studies in UK when not finding a new flat on my own. I was basically thrown to the streets.

    Mister Cormack, we can blame the environment, the city we travel to, or the airport, train station or bus we are in. They will never be guilty of a rupture, it is an excuse, only the person involved is guilty, in that rupture.
