Book by Dr Laura - Dr Banner's comments in blue for boys
For every woman who wants to know what her man is thinking.
Internationally syndicated radio superhost and columnist, controversial psycho-therapist, and author of the break-out New York Times bestsellers How Could You Do That?! and Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives, Dr. Laura Schlessinger is back with Ten Stupid Things Men Do to Mess Up Their Lives. In ten vital, compelling chapters, Dr. Laura speaks her mind on:
By getting involved with the wrong woman (weak, flaky, damaged, needy, desperate, stupid, untrustworthy, immature, etc.) you think that your love will save transform her.
I never found women like this in the least attractive did you lads? Sounds like a feminist to me.
So we should go for the strong independent wimmin (bossy materialistic always right) type who looks like a man and wants equality and chivalry too
Unwilling to admit a "need" for bonding and intimacy, you hide in excesses of work, play, drink, drugs, porn, and meaningless sex.
Independence, admirable in a woman but not now in a man? Suddenly it's work, sex, drugs. Women dont do these things? We dont need women dear, get over yourself. We are independent now and we like it. I dont hide in drink I love it. I drink it because I like the taste. (I am Irish sweetie but I note my English friends are not far behind). Its what we usually do when the weather is bad (and even if isnt).
Unable to comfortably and proudly accept your inherent importance to society and family as husband and father, you bow to the false idols of money, toys, power, and status.
WTF have independent women been praised for pursuing for decades?
TOYS? TOYS? 85% of retail space is aimed at WHOOOOO?
Uncomfortable with feeling weak, vulnerable, useless, powerless, or rejected, you use intimidation, force, or passive-aggressiveness to regain control.
Oh the 's' word! What about strong wimmin? No we get angry, and if the state and media dont get off our backs we will take what they will not give...
We have to be strong. We are not always but we are men and we have standards to aspire to.
Taking an attraction, opportunity, or erection as a "sign," you measure your masculinity and power by sexual conquests, infidelities, and orgasms.
I always say: How many orgasms does areal MAN give a woman every week?
Answer: Real men dont care
Stupid Matrimony (You said dearie. May God keep it far from me!)
Lacking a mature sense of the purpose, meaning, or value of marriage, you realize too late you are 39 (sounds more like the biological clock) and have gone down the aisle with the wrong woman for the wrong reasons and feel helpless to "fix it." Best not to do it ever then really.
Thinking that marriage is the honorable discharge from loving courtship, you continue to live as though you were single and your "mommy-wife" will take care of everything else.
You mean we have to keep buying her STUFF-TOYS...
Believing that only women mothers nurture children, you withdraw from hands-on parenting to assert your masculine importance, missing out on the true "soul food" of a child's hug.
F4J EQUAL PARENTING? FAMILY LAW is how friendly to DADS?
Having not yet worked out a comfortable emotional and social understanding with your mother, (WHAT DOES THIS ACTUALLY MEAN LAURA? GET REAL!)you form relationships with women that become geared to avenge, resolve, or protect you from your ties to Mommy.
Shaming tactics - as are all these assine statements. Note that the blame reveals more about the accuser. The very faults that people accuse others of so loudly, they harbour themselves.
Understanding the true and meaningful difference between being male and a man, you can become a man.
WHHAAAAT? We would become men if you would feck off and leave us all alone.
MACHO IS GOOD. A free man a bachelor.. Hunting, fishing, sport.. "macho macho man, I ve gotta be a Macho man ...."
