I can certainly agree with that.
I also want to make sure that people have not interpreted my arguments to mean I feel women are detrimental to success. It is always easier to succeed if those around you support and encourage you, and that's what any good marriage should be.
@PhychDave.. Okay bro, you are really good at this. But where we're taking this, we can go on and on. Its endless. So many variables change each other's agurments. So really this just depends what the situation is. Some men have a strong woman behind them with support, and some just don't, but still become successful.
Not all children have a strong female influence on their lives. If a single father raises a child, his mother has passed away, then the child goes to an all boys school, he may not have a "mother figure" until graduation, if then.
The premise that men cannot succeed without a woman behind them is just as false as saying that a woman needs a strong man to succeed. People need support, but it doesn't matter what the gender of those giving them that support is. To claim that a man needs a woman behind him to succeed is to take away from his accomplishments since he wouldn't have succeeded without her.
But hold on there..there are bound to be loving women at the orphanage..and for that single father. What about his mother? She helped him to be the successful single father he is.
I admit this topic has flaws. But it can go on forever where I am going. I see where you point out the reasons why but in some words, there will always be some woman there who makes you the man you are today.
And I am not saying women are the reason men are the men they are today, just defending the topic. Everyone has their opinions.
So all orphans are doomed to lives as failures? Is being a single father is an exercise in futility since without a mother the children cannot possibly succeed?
I am not against women in any way. Women deserve to be treated equally to men in every respect. This, however, is a step in the wrong direction. You cannot say that both sexes are equal, but men can't succeed without a woman.
Yes this can discount single men....except that there is one woman in all of our lives no one gets by. Your Mother! You're Guardian! None of us can get passed our first years of life (except maybe Chuck Norris LoL jkjk) without a loving mother to help us through it.
For that argument to work, you would need to demonstrate that there haven't been any powerful men in history who were single. This is not the case. It would also not account for powerful men who do not value women, like Henry the 8th.
perfectly put PsychDave
yeah I meant to say in history for example many of the British kings had queens which nowadays have been discovered to be the powerful one, Anne Neville for example, Henry Tudor's mother is another example. I guess I should have said powerful rather than strong :)
This discounts all successful single men and same sex partners. Not every man needs a woman behind him, just as not all women need a man to stand behind.
