RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2020.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $1050Goal: $3000

Why would adultery be wrong? Assuming you are open and honest about it. But I've never once seen a woman "get away" with something a man can't get away with. heavens child... try living with the grownups.

Stop replying to my conversations! I was not even talking to you! Goddamn! Mind your own fucking business!

Dude - it's a wiki. You really have issues, don't you.  :-)

That is not the point. The point is that I asked him a question about a comment he made. That has nothing to do with you. You misspell simple words, are apparently unaware of basic grammar, mind other people's business, & are a rather unpleasant person in general.

It's an open forum, if you want it truly private send an email. Or keep it to yourself.

What about emotional manipulation? When a man does it, it can be called spousal abuse, but when a man complains about women doing it, he is generally a misogynist.

I think that is slowly changing, but you are right. I think women do know how to, and do not hesitate to use emotional manipulation to get what they want. Especially passive aggressive behaviors, "selling" of their sexual favors in the couple's bedroom in exchange for whatever they desire at the point, and yes, crying. I hate crying women. not women who cry when things are hard, or sad, or loney... but women who use tears to get men's pity. And i think you are also right that there is a larger stigma to saying "i'm being abused by my wife", then "i'm being abused by my husband". on the other hand, were emotional manipulation is concerned (and IF there are no kids) I hold both adults responsible. ie., if they suck as a partner, leave. and leave now, before there ARE kids. (if there are kids, well, that's a different battle i cannot speak to).

For once, we agree on something.

Probably not. Children aren't allowed on my wall by the way. Too many adult words go on here.
