Feminism and dating

And there – thanks to punitive alimony and child custody laws that are systematically stacked against men – their husbands will likely enjoy anything but equal treatment. Picking over the scorched earth of this survey for green shoots of hope, perhaps the logical answer is to not marry at all.

After all, in cohabiting couples, of the 76 break-ups, 56 per cent were instigated by women, roughly the same as men.

They never bleat, because the only thing more boring than cleaning is talking about cleaning.

The next questions are: what kind of woman would divorce a man over a domestic chores rota? Rather than sort it out, or, heaven forbid, hire a cleaner to help save their marriage (no doubt that would be deemed a ‘sexist’ suggestion, since the overriding majority of cleaners are women), in this never-ending, self-destructive pursuit for equality, more and more dissatisfied women are heading to the divorce courts.

Some celebrities and public figures do successfully make an educated argument against the negativity that surrounds feminism and dating.

Kelly Clarkson claimed that she isn’t a feminist, saying, “I think when people hear feminist, it's like, 'Get out of my way, I don't need anyone.’ I love that I'm being taken care of and I have a man that's a leader.” Celebrities have an opportunity to spread mass messages and make a difference.

The results are consistent with a feminist critique of heterosexual marriage as a gendered institution in which wives find less satisfaction than husbands do”.

Before we dismiss this as American claptrap, it's worth pointing out that the picture is similar in Britain.

A feminist is someone who advocates for women’s rights in political, social and economic realms.

They advocate for equality between males and females.
