Why on earth is it “odd” to say that your spouse is hot around family members?
Social justice has become a caricature of a movement for whiny babies looking for a reason to be offended. That is why many do not take SJWs seriously.

The bottom line is the vast majority of women are turned off by men who are too soft and feminine. Social justice is responsible for demonizing men just for being masculine which is akin to women being treated poorly for our gender.

Hi Water woman, while you are absolutely right about the essence of the sentiments expressed by Woggle's BIL, it is the context in which he expressed them that was out of kilter. Something like Don Quixote who kept tilting at windmills. It seems his marriage is not a happy one for him and that his wife does not hold him in esteem. This may have been his attempt at proving himself to be her knight in shining armour but sadly it backfired on him. Just a thought. Warm wishes.

Sorry JAG... it is the whole thing. The holier than thou progressive, pc, beta boy BS, as well as calling a grown A** man down for complimenting his own wife.

Depending on how much I had to drink at the time, I think I would have just punched him in the mouth.

To make matters worse, the BIL's very own wife let it be know to everyone there that he was a beta boy that was not getting the job done for her in the bedroom.

He is probably just to sensitive from all of his social justice training to really take care of her needs...

It's my job to be hell on sexual harassment, among other things, but my wife is all of these things too, and I've probably only described her as "hot" on this board around a hundred times or so.


I'd laugh this putz right the hell out of my house if he got his back up over this.

Did I miss something? When both men and woman ask me how my hot wife is doing should I be upset that they are objectifying her?? I always thought well of it but also recognize I am a male that can be a door knob.

At least my wife and her sister found common ground on something. They both thought he was absurd.

How do you even meet so many people like this, Woggle??? I've never encountered anyone who gets their hackles raised over stuff like that!

I have to 2nd this.

Woggle you've written about a lot of extreme feminist, SJW, red pill and the likes. I read through a lot of your stuff andwonder how you come across these people?

I've never met anybody like that in person, only by internet.

Just look at any comment section or twitter feed. Those comments aren't writing themselves. There are many people who think like this.

He moved to California....should have stayed in Jersey...The hot women out here expect to be called hot...

But really...what a dope...The thing that's most hilarious is that ask any guy with a good physique how many times he's been "objectified" by a SO, and no one gave a flying crap...A zillion..

I sure hope this is not the path of the future...At least I am old enough that I won't likely see it come full circle..

TFY

You know, I don’t know what this guy was thinking or going on about. But from your side of the story it was clearly absurd. But for all you people who took that and ran with it talking about SJW, and liberals, and progressives, and how that relates somehow to this... give me an effing break!!! Liberals, feminists, and progressives are perfectly happy to call their spouses hot. Barrack Obama just commented on his wife’s “hotness” in front of the entire world when their portraits were being unveiled. So get a grip and don’t equate this guy’s weirdness to an entire political spectrum that you disagree with. FFS!

I consider myself a liberal and I say that proudly but there is a certain extreme segment of the left that seems determined to alienate everybody except for people who march in lockstep with them. I don't like self righteous totalitarians no matter what side of the aisle they are on.

I don’t like them either, but this guy just seems like a weirdo. I live in one of the most liberal cities in the country and I don’t hear people talking like that.

(Edit): but I get what you are saying and I agree with you.

It’d kind of be like if I equated the stereotypical evangelical Republican who is meanwhile hiring male prostitutes or encouraging his mistress to get an abortion- with the average republican.
