Marriage and the Manosphere
A lot of game and men’s rights bloggers are skeptical about marriage. They have a point. The law is imbalanced, and favours women. Some of the stories are shocking.
But if you avoid divorce then there’s no problem. And avoiding divorce shouldn’t be all that hard for a quality guy. You have to pick a good woman in the first place, and then be the kind of man she can love. A man should welcome this challenge.
Men who reject marriage on the grounds that it’s dangerous reveal a lot about themselves. They show that they don’t believe they can find a good woman, win her over, and keep her. If they’re game advocates, then they show in addition that they don’t have all that much faith in their own product.

Update: It seems OneSTDV wrote something similar about ‘the anti-family attitude of the manosphere’ last year:
While I surely sympathize with their concerns, especially how these injustices connect to the large framework of feminism and female supremacism, they sound like whining losers. What they’re basically saying, “there are risks to getting married and having a family and I’m too afraid to take on any of these risks.” Funny that a blogosphere enamored with masculinity can’t even discern their own female-like neuroticism.
