So, too, men who have never married also are likely to be particularly angry. In 2016, Prager University had more than 200 million views on You Tube and Facebook.
Every week, it releases a video on the most disparate subjects, most of them controversial — the Middle East, abortion, God’s existence, the minimum wage, marriage, race, Islam, etc.
Guess which subject garners the most angry and even hate-filled comments, by far? Many single men literally curse us for releasing such videos.
At least with regard to the 97 percent of the population that is heterosexual, it is simply a truism that men need a woman and women need a man.
That feminism has told generations of women that the latter statement is nonsense is one of the saddest, and most harmful, developments of the modern era.
A final note: Given the number of Jews who have attended college and graduate school, and the high esteem in which they therefore hold feminism, many Jewish readers will dismiss the thesis of this column.
I regularly ask young women (usually 18 to 25 years of age): “If you could be guaranteed a great career or a great marriage, which guarantee would you take?
(Just imagine a young woman at college announcing in a women’s studies class that her greatest hope is to marry a man and make a family.) More than anything else, feminism has taught young women that their goal should be “independence”; dependence on anyone, especially a man, is weakness.
As one female psychotherapist put it in Time magazine: “The message is clear: It’s O. to feel a void if you don’t have a job you love, but it’s not O. to feel a void if you don’t have a man you love — because healthy, successful women shouldn’t need men.” While some women are happy never to have married, this feminist thinking has produced a lot of unhappy women.
It works by connecting your profile through Facebook without posting on your wall, the name, age and “tribe” of each match is listed along with a couple photos, and you can search matches by distance from your location to swipe left or right when you find a certain someone you think might be riding the same wavelength.
JDate (.99/month, .99/month for six months) At almost for one month on this site’s basic plan, JDate is by and far the most expensive dating service for Jewish singles on the market. Like many other dating sites, JDate asks you for your name and location when registering, but also asks questions about your smoking preferences, physical characteristics, profession and “Jewish-ness.” The site itself isn’t super sleek looking, but it’s easy to use and offers the largest selection of matches out of the websites we reviewed.
