Wuss Nation: US Men Happier When Wives Make More?? But We Like Our Huricanes Male

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s time for another “Men: The New Women” alert. American men are more wussified and chickified than ever. But don’t worry, we still think “male” hurricanes are tougher.


A study just published by Money Magazine finds American men who make less money than their wives were more likely to say their marriages are happy and that they have very good sex in their marriage. It’s only one study of over 1,000 men in America, but if the study has any bearing on reality–and I believe it does–men are now happier being “kept” and playing the female role in their relationship. They’ve been taught well by several decades of deep-fried Oprah BS.

Gone are Western ideas of masculinity such as ambition, the quest to earn a living and be the breadwinner, and all that is necessary for Western civilization to sustain itself. The American male manifest destiny of the spirit has been vanquished. Instead, we are headed toward matriarchy (if we aren’t there already), and we won’t survive. Can you name a single matriarchy that is still around? Western masculinity is fading. And this is yet another sign of that. Men are happy to lose the power role in the relationship–the one who earns the money–and play the chick, instead.


A poll showed that 56 per cent of men whose wages are lower than their spouses said they had ‘hot’ or ‘very good’ sex. This compared to 44 per cent of husbands who out-earn their wives. . . . The researchers asked 1,010 married adults aged 25 and over about various aspects of their married lives. They found that 90 per cent of men whose wives earned more said their marriages were ‘happy’ compared to 75 per cent of men whose wives earned less.

But, hey, it’s no big deal because Americans are still more afraid of hurricanes with male names than they are those with female ones (but the “female hurricanes” are actually more deadly).

See, Americans still think men are tougher than women. But, in reality, men are now the women.

The Wussified State of America means the end of the United States of America in the long run. And masculine extremism like Islam will fill the void. It already has.

Debbie, without seeing a cite for the study, I am unwilling to believe any conclusions allegedly from it.

I note that the link to the article does not supply the cite.

That said, IF this conclusion is sound, we are in terrible shape.

I note, though, that men in high-status professions (e.g. doctors) 0almost always seem to be married early, disproportionately to attractive wives. Hm.

Nothing has changed.

I’m a guy, and it’s a fact of life that us guys will say or do ANYTHING to get that gal!

Remember that TV comedy show where Michael J. Fox’s character pretended to be a militant feminist in order to impress a girl?

He even got arrested with her, and sang, “I AM WOMAN!”, in the jail holding cell filled with female protestors.

Of course, there IS a caveat to what I’m saying, i.e., I am a lonely DIVORCED guy!

What you don’t seem to understand is that in today’s day and age, it does not matter how things get done, as long as they get done.

It does not matter who drives the kids to school or helps them with homework, as long as SOMEBODY does it.

It does not matter who buys the groceries or cooks the food, as long as SOMEBODY does it.

It does not matter who cleans the house, does the laundry, or mows the lawn, as long as SOMEBODY does it.

Do you get my drift?

This is not the 1950s, when women plopped out brats and men earned the money.

As long as SOMEBODY earns it, the family will be fine.

No married person gives a (expletive) who brings home the money, as long as the mortgage/rent is paid, food is on the table, gas is in the car, and somebody is paying attention to the brats.

Trust me, I am right.

Now, as for matriarchies, you are correct only in the statement that society needs male fighters. There will ALWAYS be male fighters. So your statement is moot.

This isn’t a personal attack. It’s a statement. I like your blog.

    “There will ALWAYS be male fighter”

    I disagree with most of your points but defintely the quoted sentence is really shows you missed Debbie’s point. The point is not so much who is going to make more money who is going to take care of the kids so much but how men have been downgraded and made fun of over the past 25 years. The way things are going in this country their will be no biological males willing to fight but more like transmen or butches willing to take up the mantle. Debbie’s point is that men are seen nothing better than workhorses or elephants to move heavy thing around. Which leads to conclude that America’s enemies are not going to care so much about “equal rights” when they come to slit your throat.

MY father was forced into circumstances for several years where he was unable to earn a living and he took care of me but he didn’t do housework. We had someone else to do that but my mother supported the family as she had while he went to medical school. She was already a practicing physician when they met and because my Old World Grandfather demanded his oldest son study pharmacy and take over the family busines, Daddy had a hard time doing Med School. This was very different from the young wife who quits school, gets a pink collar job to scrounge tuition money for Future Mr. Big. By the time he got his license, I was almost a teen but it was wonderful for me. Fathers need to be more involved in their little girls lives BUT, and it’s a biggie, HE WAS ALL MAN. We didn’t bake cookies together, we MIXED CONCRETE AND LAID BRICKS to build me a swimming pool. We dug holes to plant trees and rose bushes. Mom wasn’t very good in the kitchen but Daddy appreciated good food and would occasionally cook “manly” stuff. So, when I was old enough I started cooking and was good at it.
What happened to this idea from just 30 years ago? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UpqLhYQz28

    Sorry, something needed my attention. MY point about learning to cook is that despite all the masculine things my father taught me, I was encouraged to be very feminine. There was no gender bending either with my parents, although I realize that my mother tried.

Debbie, this sounds like more nonsense from East/West Coast liberals who make up what they think should be the truth. Sort of like studies that show most 14 year-olds have sex, or 10 % of Americans are homosexuals. Just because we have a girly-man in the White House does not mean most men are wimps, in spite of the elites who wish it were true.

    It may sound that way, Smitty and in the Heartland, there are probably plenty of real men who do real work but on both Coasts, and now in major cities everywhere, there is a lot of truth to Debbie’s statement. Men are growing up as coddled Peter Pans who don’t want to grow up and assume the roles that work best for society as a whole. They get their feelings hurt if you look at them crosswise, they are often passively hostile, which was common for women who were taught to be “demure” and is surprisingly still a preferred way for females to interact with each other instead of being forthright, direct and strong when it’s called for.

    I think, having gone thru it almost 30 years ago, the reason why women who are a bit more mature have such a hard time finding a good man is because a lot of us made the mistake when we were younger of equating a “nice guy” with a “good man.” We really were still choosing a boy and some of them didn’t turn out so well but the ones who did, were still happily married when we were getting divorced and hoping to get it right the second time. Often learning our lessons resulted in our remaining single. Those few who were lucky or blessed enough to find an available real man should give thanks every single day.

Meira, you’re pretty perceptive; I am in the heartland. And I have noticed some of what you describe when I travel to the East or West Coast. So you may be right. I hope not, for the sake of my grandsons and the future of America. One bright spot is our veterans; they tend to be men in what’s becoming a little boy’s world.

If it’s true that marriages are happier when the woman earns more money it may not be the case that this is the reason why these marriages are happier. An alternative explanation could be that, in these relationships, the couple earn more money overall.

For instance, a female doctor may be married to a man who earns less but who, nevertheless, may be a teacher or manager and has a good wage of his own. Whereas, many male doctors are perhaps married to stay-at-home mothers or part-time workers; women who earn considerably less than their husbands.

The former marriages may be happier because the couple have more money between them- money they can use on expensive holidays, cars, babysitters, etc.
