Do American Women Rule The Roost?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Walter B. Pewen Mar 11. 48 Replies

Many men accept that women run their relationships, their marriages. It's often the butt of many jokes in sitcoms, Hollywood movies and real life. Only in America does this seem to exist. Or does it?…Continue

Hello, gents. New to the AoM Community. Please be patient with me. Curious about your thoughts on how to tell a great good friend that he's with the wrong person. Clearly he's on the path to…Continue

"Would it that it were that simple then.   Yeah, 70s on some levels were a bit of a drag.  Sure hated disco.  Feminism seemed cool to me when it first appeared on the scene, before it became hijacked by what to my observation is…"

"It was a weird, fucked up time, the 70s. We were all in family therapy, sitting there getting itchy in our polyester. Produced a lot of messed up kids, my generation."

"You are missing the 70s. As a kid I witnessed it; moms who returned to the work force because of the recession and increased energy prices. It drove the ones who didn't particularly want to rejoin the workforce to do so. "

Penelope replied to Todd Behrend's discussion Do American Women Rule The Roost?
"At the risk of sounding like a Stalinist, was it the 1950s, or the Industrial Revolution?  I imagine household dynamics were very different when the household, rather than the corporation, was the producer unit.  When I read about family…"

Jack Bauer replied to Todd Behrend's discussion Do American Women Rule The Roost?
"Can't even remember where I heard that.  I didn't invent it.   Might've been some feminist site complaining about how men were treated better simply because they were 'bepenised'.  Seemed clever enough. …"

"I agree, to a point.  I disagree entirely about the separate finances thing, though ... at least among married couples.  Not sure the best financial arrangement for unmarried cohabitating couples, though.   JB"

Adrian Miranda replied to Todd Behrend's discussion Do American Women Rule The Roost?
"Sorry, I am a little slow on the draw sometimes.  I can see how growing up in a single parent household the child would grow up and think that is the norm, for them it would be all they know.  Girls might expect to be the single parent,…"

Brad Williams replied to Todd Behrend's discussion Do American Women Rule The Roost?
"+1 JB, you said this very well. I too could never tolerate a girlfriend who is "always right" or who "walks all over" me.  I've ended relationships over that kind of thing. The damaging thing about the view of the…"

"In this case, I don't think NS is talking about the lack of men-only establishments, but about the creation of man-caves in home to keep masculine influences out of the rest of the house.  The relegation of men to ghettos in their own…"

"May have posted this before, but here:   I'm a member of the Barbershop Group here and have been going to old-time barbers for 30 years now. The traditional barbershop is a mancave that I socialized into as a boy with my Dad and…"

Native Son replied to Todd Behrend's discussion Do American Women Rule The Roost?
"A second thought on this.   I'd agree with a thesis I saw a few years ago concerning women "ruling the roost" in America.  What was theorized was that in the early 1950s, the middle class women in America were sold a full…"

Native Son replied to Todd Behrend's discussion Do American Women Rule The Roost?
"So it may seem.  How else to explain the rise of the "ManCave"? Although, judging from the DIY network show about building mancaves, it seems that the women have managed to infiltrate the guy's fortress of solitude, by…"

Jack Bauer replied to Todd Behrend's discussion Do American Women Rule The Roost?
"The 'overcomplication' crack was a joke. In a single-mother household, the woman literally rules the roost.  Not only that, but she teaches her kids -- boys and girls alike -- that the woman rules.  They have no idea what the…"
