The Myth of the Strong, Independent Woman


Women claim to be strong and independent like Rosie the Riveter but then look for massive divorce payoffs from men, government handouts, and to be paid more for working less

The concept of the Strong, Independent Woman™ is shoved in Western men’s faces on a daily basis. With her slogan Don’t Need a Man™ she mythically fights off evil male oppression, slaying those penis-possessing villains with her magical sword of affirmative action and government enforced hiring policies. Rather than cultivating her feminine strengths, she tries to be like men, proving Freud correct. Women today are so deranged they consider having a womb, giving birth to children, and enjoying a life as a homemaker – which incidentally is the occupation that makes women happiest – Draconian forms of oppression.

If the Evil White Male™ even dares claim credit for his lengthy list of contributions and inventions and society he will be shouted down by minions brainwashed to hate him. According to the new narrative, all those inventions would have been made by someone else if he wasn’t actively oppressing everyone. As pointed out by Michael Savage in his book The Savage Nation, it is blasphemy to even point this out in modern times, which prevents white men from enjoying any sense of pride in themselves. Here are just a few inventions of the Evil White Male™:

  • Trains
  • Planes
  • Cars
  • Rockets
  • Telescopes
  • Telephones
  • Radios
  • Television
  • Computers

Indeed, the list is much more extensive than that. But the new narrative says the despicable white male is to be extinguished so that diversity may flower. We must subjugate an entire group of people so that others can arise. Needless to say, this creates a great disincentive for white men to give a damn about society if they’re going to be held back on purpose.

But, fear not, because the Strong, Independent Woman™ is here to take his place. Of course, our social engineers tell us she can do anything a man can do. But even if she could, why would she want to? More importantly, why does she cease to exist without government bureaucracy?


There is a shortage of women in the well-paying construction industry, but we need women to do backbreaking labor not just administration

Propped Up By Government

Unfortunately, the Strong, Independent Woman™ has to be propped up by an overbearing government. If the free market were left to decide who gets hired and who does not, she would be at a disadvantage in a number of areas. This is why affirmative action quotas exist, so there is a legal disincentive to hire men. In addition to a policy intended to fight “discrimination” against women (which actually drives a policy of discrimination against men in reality) we constantly get the Equal Pay Myth shoved in our faces. But, here are the real reasons women earn 81% of what men do:

  • Men spend an average 8.14 hours on the job
  • Women spend an average 7.75 hours on the job
  • Men often go for higher pay rather than jobs they enjoy
  • Women often trade higher pay for jobs they’re happier with
  • Men take on dangerous and demanding jobs women don’t want that pay well
  • Women miss work more often than men

An Empirical Model of Work Attendance from the U.S. Department of Labor tells us why women miss more work than men.

Women workers miss an average of 3.7 days from work every year for ill health compared to 2.7 for men. Women miss more days from work for respiratory conditions and infective diseases, and men miss more for injuries and diseases of the digestive system. Among women under age 45, about .52 days per year of work loss can be attributed to pregnancy. Thus, excluding pregnancy considerably narrows the difference in work-loss days between men and women.

What this study doesn’t point out it how modern Anglo women are increasingly forgoing having those nasty little pregnancies and aborting/killing more children since 1973 than the number of soldiers who have died in all American wars since 1776. Statistically, the deadliest person to an unborn human in Anglo America is their own mother.

Women also get preferences in the family court system because it’s assumed they are weaker and need men to support them. However, we have not seen feminists railing against getting large divorce settlements, alimony, and child support payments from men as relics of a sexist system. It seems women want whatever they can get from men financially, making marriage nothing more than a sophisticated game of prostitution. Women will take what they can get from men even if that means kicking a poor bastard out of his job under the guise of “fairness” or making the court system turn him upside down and shake him until all his money falls out. It is the height of hypocrisy when women have no issue with a legal system that views women as weak as long as they can cash a check from it.

Women also avail themselves of female-only government tit programs, further proving the legal system views them as weak while exposing more feminist hypocrisy. The blog Cultural Misandry compiled an extensive listing of female-only handouts that are truly puzzling in that women claim they can Have It All™ all by themselves these days.

Remember that when reading over this list and try to think of a single group in history that called themselves oppressed, but had so much dedicated to them. In contrast, there is not a single Federal level program dedicated to men or even boys in the US. Also note that almost every one of these female only programs are in areas where women are doing far better than men and boys (education, health care, homicide, homeless, workplace death, violence).

Women shouldn’t need these programs if they are already doing better than men in these areas. The ugly truth of the matter is since women pay less taxes than men, these programs are yet another government wealth redistribution scheme designed to exploit the labor of Beta male taxpayers for the benefit of women. Because, you know, the Golden Vagina and all.


As women attempt to exploit society’s resources for material gain, we as men can choose to stop feeding the monster they’ve created


Despite women playing the victim card, working less than men, missing more work than men, killing their children to keep up, gaming the family court system for cash and prizes extracted from discarded meal tickets, and using government programs that discriminate against men, they’re still not satisfied.

Perhaps the optimal arrangement would be one in which men are fed a diet of bread and water and housed in government work camps while all the money they earn is immediately transferred to women. We could just scale up the human tax farm and maximize male slavery to maximize benefits and idle lives of materialism for ungrateful women. Needless to say, when one sees how ridiculous this setup is the desire to be exploited by it drops to zero. The great cultural myth of the Strong, Independent Woman™ is also revealed to be full of holes. I’m still waiting for a woman to invent the cure for cancer and for women to catch up with men on the list of inventions. But she can’t because horrible creations with penises are actively keeping her down, right?

Atlas shrugs as John Galt prepares to leave the fucking building. You can have it all ladies, including the responsibilities. It’s time for a good old-fashioned slave revolt. I ran off the plantation and now live happier on less with a life of minimalism so I can take tax dollars out of a system that hates me. Will you do the same?

  • TheTruthHasBeenSaid

    Well career women are the worst of all women because of their greed and selfishness that is everywhere nowadays since they will only want the best of all and will never settle for less. They’re the real reason why the divorce rate is so very high and out of control as well.


  • Male Disposabilty, Cultural Misandry and Social Engineering

    Men and women have been conditioned to think:

    Men must sacrifice their lives for women.
    A man that doesn’t sacrifice his life and limb for a woman is a misogynist and coward.
    Women are better than men – therefore – men should suffer.
    Female empowerment is key in the redistribution of male power and wealth to women.
    Only women’s empowerment is important.
    Women are helpless, blameless victims with the minds of children and men are evil oppressors.
    Women are entitled to privileges at the expense of men.
    Male disposability benefits women.
    Males are under obligation to women simply because of their anatomy.
    Men are naturally disposable.
    Women can have the expectation of equality without responsibility.
    Women don’t have to reciprocate with regard to male disposability.
    Women should feel entitled to act with condescension and indifference towards men.
    Women should equate their indifference and condescension towards men with female empowerment.
    Women are prized. Men are expendable.
    Women aren’t as strong as men, so men should be the first to risk their lives for women.
    Men are less than women.
    Men are expected to take care of women and themselves. Those that don’t aren’t “real men” and aren’t worthy of female attention.
    Men’s suffering doesn’t exist.
    Men that don’t accept male stereotypes and prostrate before women aren’t viable men.
    Male suffering isn’t important.
    Male disposability is a sign of male privilege.
    Male dominance has nothing to do with male sacrifice.
    That males run into burning buildings and sacrifice their lives in war for women is male privilege.
    Women are always the victims and the oppressed. Men are always the villains and never heroes.
    Women are oppressed if they’re housewives – but men are privileged if they’re wage and tax slaves.
    Women are innocent, blameless victims in an evil patriarchy.
    When a man opens a door for a woman – that’s patriarchal oppression.
    Women should have all of the rights of men – and men should be burdened with all of the responsibility.
    Women should have all the rights and privileges that men don’t have.

    The Role of Media:

    Keep the stereotypes, hypocrisy and double standards against males in favor of women relevant.
    Continue with the stereotype and hypocrisy that men are naturally disposable.
    Chivalry is social control – use it.
    Condition men and women not to care about male suffering.
    Men’s value lies within their disposability.
    Men’s willingness to forego their rights as a human being defines maleness.
    Keep male disposability hidden.
    Hide the fact that society thrives on male disposability.
    Disavow male sacrifice in society past that of nameless statistics or empty medals.
    Focus on male stereotypes and feminist propaganda.
    Raise male disposability in discussions only when it can be swept aside.
    Always blame men.
    Never mention the millions upon millions of men that have sacrificed nearly their entire lives for women.
    Never mention that men give up their basic human rights when entering contractual obligations with women.
    Shame and attack any man that gives voice to the prejudices that men face.
    Gynocentric men should attack any male that attempts to give himself a voice.
    Men that don’t tow the gynocentric line should be painted as week, a chump, a beta, an outcast and not a viable candidate for employment or relationships.

    The Result:

    Men are choking on female and white knight hypocrisy.
    The social contract between men and women is now null and void. Women broke the contract to empower themselves and marginalize men.
    Feminism has eroded women’s accountability to the point that women can never be held accountable for their own actions.
    Men’s sacrifices only benefits a system that oppresses men.
    Women and the government are the only beneficiaries of male sacrifice.
    Men don’t value their own lives and see themselves as secondary to women.
    A “real man” sacrifices himself for a woman – regardless of who that woman is – or how she views him.

    The Backlash:

    Where’s the payoff for men?
    Why would men wish to be a slave of women and government that care nothing for them?
    Why do women and government see men as little more than disposable utilities?
    Are women of today worth it?
    When women walk away from the table, don’t men have to do the same?
    When will women repay men’s chivalry (never)?
    Rejection of male disposability.
    Women’s rights were handed to women on a plate. Men fought and died for women’s rights – not women.
    Unlike women’s rights, men’s rights have always gone hand-in-hand with huge responsibilities and accountability for their actions.
    Women were handed their rights by men – minus the responsibilities.
    Men are finally fighting for their own rights.
    Men can change things – and they will.

    The Modern Man:

    Redefines male value through a new gender identity – one that isn’t defined by women.
    Redefines male value that isn’t adhered to through male shaming.
    Defines himself as a complete and free man – short of government and feminine servitude.
    Changes consciousness to implement societal change.
    Rejects chivalry as male disposability. There’s no equivalent to chivalry for women.
    Because women have no sense of protection for men – men need not have a sense of protection for women.
    Realizes that women have big daddy government to look after them. Men have no such protection.
    Realizes that women and the government are anti-male puppet masters.
    Knows that society doesn’t care about men and boys – so it’s OK for men to withdraw from women and society (mgtow).


  • There’s really only one thing you need to remember to survive our man-hating gynocracy/white knights, culturally embedded misandry and the rampant male disposability so prevalent in the US since the 1960s. Read this carefully. Let it sink in completely. In US history, since the advent of feminism, tens upon tens of millions of men have had their lives destroyed by not taking to heart this one piece of male-life-saving advice:


    What does this statement mean?

    (1) Never get married. Why? The marriage contract is the single most man-hating contract on the planet. Hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of men, every year, in the US alone, learn this lesson only after they’ve been beaten down and crucified in divorce court. For that reason, 10s upon 10s of thousands of men in the US commit suicide each and every year.

    (2) All women are like that (AWALT). You will not realize this until that freakazoid that swore she was a Christian and anti-feminist hires a legal team with but one goal in mind: destroying your life through divorce. “They all” say that they’re not like that – until “they” decide it’s time to forcefully transfer your power and wealth, through (1) no-fault divorce, (2) asset division, (3) alimony, (4) child support, (5) false allegations of domestic abuse and/or child molestation and (6) parental alienation.

    (3) Women and white knights will say anything – produce the most falsified statistics – tell you you’re going to live longer – shame you into submission – for one reason and one reason alone: To get you to sign that most life-destroying of anti-male contracts ever conceived.

    There are a plethora of ways you could give women and white knights the power to destroy your life, but marriage is by far the easiest way they have to destroy you and bilk you of any and all wealth and power – in one fell swoop.

    Do not make the mistake so many hundreds of thousands of men make every single stinking year and ignore the above advice. Instead – listen to the advice of most men and avoid marriage like the man-plague it has become. I beg you – for your own well being.


    • Relampago Furioso

      When I left The Matrix I overheard two gringas (white girls) in line at the bank bragging to each other how much money they both screwed their ex-husbands out of like it was a sport. They were loud because they assumed nobody understood English. It was then and there I knew I was wise for avoiding the Anglobitch my entire life and all the worst suspicions I had about women were confirmed in that one conversation.


      • Oh yeah. I had a 12 year long live in girlfriend try to take me to the cleaners after I threw that psychopath out. What saved me? I live in a state that doesn’t recognize de facto marriage and I never mixed our bank accounts. Now, many a state, even those that don’t support de facto marriage (common law marriage), now recognize ‘inequity in breakup as a result of contributions’. What does that mean? That means that if you buy a house, have significant assets and have a live in girlfriend, any and all contributions (including doing your laundry), regardless of how minor the contributions were on her part, count in a big way towards what she might receive in palimony. Palimony can be redefined by judges to mean a lump sum payout and even child support for the kids she had with another guy before she started living with you! In many countries, they’ve already created de facto marriage laws that give girlfriends the same rights to asset division, alimony and child support their divorced married counterparts so enjoy. In the UK, “Lord I’m Going To Screw Males Escaping Marriage” introduced the “Cohabitation Rights Bill”, which gives women, after 2 years of living with a guy, the same rights to asset division, alimony and child support their divorced female counterparts so enjoy. Tie that with false accusations of domestic abuse and child molestation and you’d be a fool to expose yourself to this level of legal destruction.

        Affirmative Consent is currently on the feminist agenda. Why? Because it removes men’s rights to presumption of innocence and due process – opening a huge opportunity for civil suit payouts and life destroying retribution after getting pump and dumped.

        Like I said earlier – marriage is one of many ways in which you could be hung out to dry by the NAWALTs and their white knight @$$ kissers.
