Treating everyone like people, not splitting the world into slaves and privileged princesses.
1. Men who think the 1950's were OK, ...
2. Feminists demand equality - OK, give it to them.
Pacman7331,I see lots of men complaining about women refusing to take responsibility ... for anything.They get that way for a reason. They may have a chivalrous dad who gives Little Princess everything she wants, and then they move on to the chivalrous husband who shields Little Princess from everything in life (i.e. putting her not only in the housewife role, but in a childlike role).In fact, that's one of the major MRA themes - that women won't take responsibility. Chivalrous men only complain about it after they personally get bitten in the butt in family court. But the monsters that they create damage OTHER PEOPLE because of their refusal to take responsibility and society's shielding of them.Back when work almost invariably involved back-breaking work on a farm or in a factory, I agree that women's natural role was probably housewife. They also had a lot of work to do in the home without modern conveniences.Society has changed. There have been technological advancements. It's not the same situation.
