I saw a comment on YouTube that mentioned misogyny as the main reason for the sexual revolution, female independence and I agree. Women took a lot of crap over the centuries and women independence was fought for over centuries and won after the pill was invented.

The genie is out the bottle, where will this lead to I'm not sure, but women have more options and fight to get them and keep them. And lets not be disingenuous, men have attractions to female independence too. So where do we go from here? Tim Alexander tries to address that and I give him coodos for that.

Women are breaking their conservative roles all over the world, India, Middle East, Africa, Central Asia, Asia, SE Asia and the reasons for that are attractive.

This is not the first time men became absent from homes, separated from their own children, when husbands did not come back. Wars and many wars, long protracted wars! Women with their kids were taken in by other men in polygamy, kings and noblemen had concubines after wars to support women and kids left without men, dead fathers left on the battle fields of wars.

Wars killed a lot of men and governments like kings took concubines, governments put polices in place to support the well being of broken families and fortify whole families and all of its people with policies that gave a baseline living standards with dignity and upward mobility. Going back is not the answer.

I think once people have a dignified baseline to thrive from and able, equipped and free to pursue their passions, females and males will naturally attract their traditional roles. It may not look like it was 50 years ago but those natural instincts will be satisfied over time.
Afrikans learned to hate and fear women from Europeans! That is not a part of Afrikan culture.

'The root cause of the current state of affairs of the African-American family is white domination'!
and the root cause of the rain is the Sun but their are still ways to keep dry.

Interpretation: there are levels to things.. and the idea that everything must be crushed down to the level of "white domination" is not only preposterous.. it's defeatist as well.. and it becomes the excuse for every ill. Even within this so-called "dominated state" there are decisions that individuals can make that directly impact the family unit.

context is everything.

He makes excellent points. Especially about the damage done by feminists

Preposterous, defeatist? Clarify. The "so-called dominated state" is real even if you don't know it. We are a persecuted, subject people dominated by a bunch of racist psychopaths. But for said psychopaths most of us wouldn't be in this country. What decisions specifically does your last sentence refer to? Examples please.
