Quote# 89588

Under such a setup, a man cannot have any meaningful authority over a woman, and in many – if not most – cases a wife will come to feel a great deal of contempt and resentment. How can such a humble, lowly man possibly provide her the comfort and security she craves? He is barely better than a child, and doesn’t even begin to compare to a superior at work.

Therefore, many working women will instinctively feel more attraction for their superiors at work, and it is not uncommon for affairs to ensue. In the United States, it is only strict sexual harassment laws and corporate (and military) non-fraternization policies that prevent this from becoming an outright epidemic.

For most men there is little that can be done about this, and the ordinary man can only hope that his wife has enough common sense and decency to overlook his degraded position as husband — a feeble consolation at best. However, for some it is possible to restore some authority, but only by merging the office of husband with that of employer; in short, one must hire one’s wife in order to establish something approaching the natural definition of marriage. Although this may seem like an odd solution to contemporary ears, some of the best marriages I have ever known of employ exactly this method, and it is far closer to the old definition of marriage than what is currently seen as a “normal” marriage.

This guy is utterly stuck in the notion that women must be subservient to men at all times. No changing his view - we're just gonna have to MOCK HIM TO DEATH!

"Under such a setup, a man cannot have any meaningful authority over a woman...."

THAT THE POINT, YOU KNOB! Men and women are equals, a team, yin-yang, partners, compadries, pals, IS THAT SO HARD TO GRASP, DUMMO?


"....and in many – if not most – cases a wife will come to feel a great deal of contempt and resentment. How can such a humble, lowly man possibly provide her the comfort and security she craves? He is barely better than a child, and doesn’t even begin to compare to a superior at work."

Cuz it's not like, women can get educated and do stuff for themselves and all....you've never actually talked to a woman, have you?


"...but only by merging the office of husband with that of employer; in short, one must hire one’s wife in order to establish something approaching the natural definition of marriage."

Mail-order brides?



"Although this may seem like an odd solution to contemporary ears, some of the best marriages I have ever known of employ exactly this method, and it is far closer to the old definition of marriage than what is currently seen as a “normal” marriage."

Arranged marriages? POW's? Mom must've dropped you when you were little. She needs to do it again....

....head-first from the top of this!

That's one way of looking at it. Another way would be to enter into a mutually loving relationship like normal people do, rather than being a a small minded, misogynist dick head.

What's so meaningful about authority over a woman?

In most cases I know of, man and woman are equal partners in their marriage, helping and supporting each other. A man can be strong, self-secure and feminist, stupid. The cases I have known of, where the man dominated the woman, it have always ended with the woman breaking away in disgust sooner or later.

At my workplace, they don't allow couples to work in the same department. There are many, many couples working there, (me and hubby for example), but very few work in close proximity to each other.

A wife (or for that matter a husband) is not a domesticated pet.

Actually you probably couldn't be trusted with a real pet either, start with a virtual pet and see how that works out.

Yeah, this is terrible. Next thing you know women will start thinking they're people.

...is barely better than a child

Yes, The Spearhead is rather childish and whiny.

Reading things like this just screams insecurity to me.

Hey Price, how about you grow a pair and quit your whining.

What? Did your wife ask you to do the dishes AGAIN? Oh, wait, your wife would have to be a fictional character as no real woman could put up with you.

"one must hire one’s wife"

So you want to marry a prostitute? Feel free, but do realize most service providers charge by the hour. You can ask for a lot of kinky shit, but don't expect them to bake or clean house.

He doesn't seem able to conceptualise an equal relationship. Neither men or women are as simple as this stereotyping suggests. Women don't always just drop their knickers for whoever happens to be the richest man in the room. It's a very crude model of human behaviour, and even if it were true, it's a problem of a money system and not a problem of human nature.
This is a problem that could only exist in a hierarchical society, where men like this are constantly brooding on their position in a money-based hierarchy, and where spouses are seen as a sort of property to boost status, and thus jealously protected. For him, being a husband is an "office", ie, a job. It's the management of a propertarian relationship, the relationship of a commodity to a commodity.
And, indeed, he does take this idea to its logical conclusion: Buying your wife. What he's proposing is not essentially different from prostitution. Disgusting.

My wife actually turned down a rich guy (he's a Tory MP now) for me. I dunno what she saw in me, particularly, but I've got a clue or two why Tory boy lost out.

QuasiRodent

since women are typically smaller than men, I can't see much problem with men being the more protective in the relationship, or that there should be any stigma associated with the smaller partner looking to the larger for protection and security. But being the protector does not make one -dominant-.

This moron again. If he's ever been laid it was because he paid for it.
Either way, he's a scum bag that women should avoid like the plague. He deserves to die childless.

Having sex with your boss doesn't mean he's coercing you in Spearhead Land!

So, women don't like you ay? Hmmm? What to do? What to do? Ah ha! Got it! Quick, to the internets with you. There you will have your most terrible revenge and impress everyone with your tremendously authoritative, if a trifle uncharismatic, manliness. Oh, you clever tent-commander, you.

Woman are not dumb beasts, dickhead, they're PEOPLE. Y'know, like anyone else? I'm guessing you don't know many women...

9/16/2012 11:59:18 AM



a husband who satisfies his wife is going to be fine, authority or not. By satisfy, yes, I mean sexually, a torrid humping with moaning and multiple orgasms. Yes guys it is work but later she will bake you a pie or cupcakes.

I feel a great deal of contempt & resentment towards you. You are NO better than a child; at least children have a reason for behaving poorly at times-still developing brains. Your brain seems to be located in your pants & I suspect that you have been kicked there countless times, resulting in your quite severe brain damage. Shut the fuck up & go back to fapping to Hustler.

Hey now. If this Price guy and his wife want to add a "theme" to their D/s thing, more power to them :)

Yes, because all every woman in the world cares about is money and position in a company.
