The end of men, who are becoming OBSOLETE

Imagine a world without men. Sounds like the trailer for a bad movie, right?

“In a world where men are obsolete, and cast adrift from society, one man stands up to fight back.”

I joke around that women are taking over. They’re getting all the college degrees (something like 60 percent and rising) and good jobs. That once women have robots that can mow the lawn, take out the trash and fight wars, we men will be fighting for the two available careers left for us on the planet: cabana boy and Hollywood co-star in romantic comedies, except Matthew McConaughey has that market sewn up.

Hollywood Law requires that Matthew McConaughey leans on his female co-star, in this case, Kate Hudson.

I keep saying  by the year 2030, women running the world will have to invent wars on the moon, just to solve the problem of what to do with all of us surplus men.

Except it’s not really a joke.

Here’s a great piece by Philip Brand taking a look at the landscape. It’s not pretty. It is far uglier than a zombie apocalypse, because this threat is real.

We men need to wake up and work like hell to prevent becoming obsolete. To put down the damn Xbox controller, go to college and fight for a place in the world. Because though I do dig robots, a world without men wouldn’t be good for women or kids or anybody.

    goodbye my fellow brothers

  2. It was all part of the plan.

    First we develop the remote control for the TV. Then we move forward with cable TV, satellite TV, and finally the internet. Every step of the way we allow women to step into our old jobs. Sure, we put up token resistance here and there, but we’ve moved women forward. By 2030 there will be virtual reality porn, and by then women will make up 80% of the work-force.

    We will never have to leave the house…unless there’s a sale at Home Depot…

    Yeah, men will eventually become obsolete fully agree… save the hypocrite few who sits at the top of the richest/most powerful list. These ultra rich men want to get rid of competition and like to have all the women in the world for themselves. It’s easy to see a future where most men become obsolete and all women (with very very few exceptions) serving the last few men who holds the richest and power. Woman empowerment is partly a result of the hypocrisy of the most rich and powerful men. I mean look at the most powerful and richest human beings? How are many are actually women? Total gender-equality is never gonna happen. The world will always be dominated by few men.

    This is just plain silly talk. Kind of girlish.

    I do not like robots. Men, please don’t allow yourselves to become obsolete (not the good lot of you). We need the good ones to stay.
