Oh ick.

Notice that both of these people write for Maxim. No surprise there.

What's especially frustrating is that, as I look through that stupid contract, there's actually a lot in there I don't inherently have a problem with (e.g., planning dates that I find interesting, giving each other space to spend time with friends, not meeting the families immediately after starting to date, speaking up and asking for what you want, etc.) -- but the fact that he would want to put that in a contract (even jokingly) is really fucking demeaning. Like we're a bunch of "Lady"-Children just waiting for a man to make us shape up and stop whining. Bleah.

The key to healthy heterosexual relationships: Emotionally abuse women until their will is broken.

1) "The key to healthy heterosexual relationships: Emotionally abuse women until their will is broken." Surely, this was the motto of all my ex husbands and they were very surprised indeed that this attitude broke the relationship instead of my will. The thought processes they had that enabled this must have gone along the lines of: "her ex husband did that to her and she put up with it for X years so I can do it too." They forget to fast forward to "she left his sorry ass so I'd better not try that." Another side to the ex-husband thought process could be, "My friends treat their wives this way and they've been together for 25 years. Therefore, it works!"

2) "Read and hear enough of this tripe in the popular culture and you can't help but conclude that women are incredibly irritating and loathsome creatures and that we are incredibly lucky that men even tolerate us."
This is part of #1 - if all us women could made to believe in our loathesomeness, we'd understand perfectly why men want to hurt us. It's because a) they can't help it and b) we deserve it. And we'd stay with any guy who didn't walk out on us. (This man type was the fiance in How to Make An American Quilt).
