Joe Rogan Explains How Divorce Laws Keep Screwing Men
We like Joe Rogan. Do we agree with everything he says about everything? Of course not. But I sometimes find myself disagreeing with things I've done and said in the past. Don't throw someone away just because they have an opinion you don't like. I have to make this point because tribalism isn't just a leftist issue. Go back to the Facebook comments for this post and you'll see what I mean. Anyway, Joe Rogan hosted Kyle Kulinski, a progressive Democrat, on his podcast. One topic that came up was the men's rights movement. While Joe dismissed much of the movement's grievances, he did bring up a salient point about divorce. Here:
"What if women started paying attention to what men actually did? Like how men started all the wars."
Sorry, Joe. We've already noticed. Plenty of pink memes on Pinterest to this effect.
"Courts tend to decide toward the mother. The system was designed to protect the kids or protect the mother. The reason why women can exploit it is because so many men are pieces of shit, creating a need for a law to protect women and children."
Joe then explained how often women lie and manipulate the court to screw over their husbands.
"I know many people who've been f*cked over by divorce."
Divorce and alimony laws are starting to level off, but Joe still has a point. Yes, yes, they ARE starting to level off. There are women in my life who had to pay alimony to their husbands because they, the women, made more than their husbands. Wives paying husbands alimony is also becoming a plot point in women-dominated shows, specifically about divorce. So even the culture is shifting here. All ye MGTOW and MRAs I have muted on Twitter can start sipping from the fountain of chill. Changes are afoot.
But there seem to be a lot of older cases, like the one Joe refers to about a friend paying his ex-wife 14 years later, which may need to be reexamined under the feminist rubric of "EQUALITY!" If feminists really wanted things equal, maybe an insistence divorce laws be treated "fairly," even divorces from the past, should be a cause to champion. Just an idea.
