I Think Men Are Used and Abused

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 154 People

    Not Talked About As Much As It Should Be,

     I see way to many women who use and abuse men mentally more then anything and it's frustrating cause they don't think they deserve or need to be protected as if standing up to those women makes them weak or something. I wish more people would talk about it and do more about...

    Feminism Has a Lot To Answer For!

    I think that feminism has given many women the right to act in an unbelievably selfish way. A lot of women have stopped appreciating men for being men by encroaching into their world.  I think that they have managed to not only leave our men feeling used and abused but they...

    The Business Of Relationships

    I found this quote online that quite nicely wraps up my take on the whole "his money for her lovin" aspect of marriage. The disclaimer is that I am indeed one of those men who is paid well and through personal habits and good genes happens to be getting better looking with age...

    Yes You Are Poor Babies!!!

    Men are used and abused for many things.  Some women use men as a meal ticket while others use them as their protector while still others use them for their on sexual gratification. One of my EP friends I think put it best in one of his stories when he said if a woman acts...

    By Some Women

    They are tricked and taken advantage of when it comes to some women. The nice ones in my mind seem to mostly be attracted to girls that could care less about them. Some men are used to make the girl's boyfriend jealous, other men are verbally abused my their wives, etc even when...

    My Daddy Was, And I Know Other Guys

    It's very infuriating for me to know that some guys actually put up with being physically abused and just take it because they are too embarrassed that other men will think there wusses. Or maybe they take it because they go by the "don't hit girls" rule.  I used to have a ex...

    I Wasn't Always Like This

    I used to be a generous man. I used to be truthful to a fault. Once upon a time, I was happy and giving of my time and help to others. I used to be one of those "live and let live" types. And then I married. My dedication to truth and giving was my foundation, and I thought...

    Not to say that men are not strong and not able to handle an awful lot, but when we as women constantly berate...and verbally abuse men for all the things they "don't" do they become defeated and stop trying. Men like to be acknowledged and supported....why give them such a hard...

    Men Are Used and Abused Alot More Than You Think

    Men are expected in general to be providers.  Alot of women take advantage of that and expect the man to do everything for them and use them.  Other men are abused with crazy women that beat on them and cry domestic violence if the man fights back.  I would not...

    Mother's Wisdom

    My mother and I were discussing one of my male friends, who was dating a woman whom no one else trusted. I wondered why we were all so harsh on her; she seemed decent, and really, none of us knew her that well. She responded in a surprising manner: "If a man is financially...

    I Think All People Are

    but the statistics on men are limited by the fact that it's not common or accepted for them to speak up about it. They're told to grow a thicker skin, that it's a woman thing to be used and abuse, as if anyone deserves that sort of treatment. As if their "man card" will be...

    Although There Is No Research To Back This Up..

    Perhaps I am wrong, but I am inclined to believe there are as many men abused as women.  However men tend to remain silent about what they have endured due to the way our society views abused men.     It seems men do not have the same type of freedom that women have...

    Time To End Non-religious Circumcisions

    The Shocking Truth About Domestic Violence, Part One
