Ladies, "Somebody That I Used To Know" teaches you everything you need to know about relationships

Gavin McInnesArchive

I spend a lot of time criticizing feminists who don't get married and have kids, but I have to admit that some of the blame has to rest with men who refuse to settle down.


I was sitting in a bar when the Gotye song "Somebody That I Used To Know" came on. I listened to the lyrics and realized it summed up everything that's wrong with young men and women today.

I'll play the whole song and explain what I mean.

Slut Walks aren't the answer, ladies.

And men: Sleeping around is no way to spend your whole life.

Young men and women have to grow up and get serious.

I think that men and women are both responsible for the way things are turning out in society. The first sign of maturity, is taking responsibility for your own behaviour, before pointing out someone else’s errant behaviour. I see the main problem is that we have raised a few generations of the entitled, that feel that they are entitled to use and abuse anyone, to justify getting what they want, without any commitment. It is the meek that will inherit the earth, not those who are too selfish and self-centered to give a damn about anyone but themselves and their needs. It is impossible to have a normal healthy relationship with those who are narcissistic. That is the problem, we have raised generations of narcissistic brats, and now there is no reaching them. To be in an intimate relationship means that you have to drop your guard, and that involves trust, and many are not able to trust themselves, let alone another person these days.

Gavin is hard on the guys who don’t get married, but the family courts are incredibly stacked against men. Marriage is a dangerous game these days. Divorce ruins men financially. Women seem to have a cavalier attitude towards marriage, and picking the wrong woman is emotional and financial suicide. I’m not surprised to see men throw marriage aside. These days it is a low value, high risk endeavor.

as far as I’m concerned this whole world is just one big steaming pile of Jerry Springer bullshit. regardless of how people conveniently criticize MGTOW it has far less baggage than any other way of life for men. it is a perfect way to be responsible and stay trouble free. we are giving women what they want and that is NO MEN. in spite of what feminists think about that MEN HAVE LOST NOTHING BECAUSE OF THIS. feminists have badly over valued themselves and are nothing to be proud of. the difference is that many men world wide are making the decision to avoid divorce, unwanted pregnancy, abortion, fighting and arguing, domestic violence, no cheating and no other bad behavior coming out of a relationship. everything will always be blamed on men because man hatred is government institutionalized hatred right from the top down. MGTOW is morally and ethically superior to this crap and we are very happy to walk away from it and let society burn from it’s own stupidity.

Jacqui you make some great points, seems that kids are force fed too much garbage from so called experts, yet these same experts say you are born a certain way while they are pushing it on people at the same time. Also there are fewer consequences these days, you get pregnant and you can get an abortion, most STD’s can be dealt with and cured, history has always shown the danger of being careless but to many refuse to learn from history.

Michael Mann marriage does not fail, people fail. Though i do agree it is whatever is best for the person, many rush into it just for the sake of being married sometimes, they do not realize it is a partnership.

While I am happy married – most marriages fail, so I understand why people these days are not exactly rushing out to get married. And why should you anyway? Getting married isn’t the answer. Whatever works for you is the answer.

Verry cute ☺ I’ve been saying this all along…women need to draw a line in the sand from the beginning…back to the old days (of my great-grandmother)…time women started VALUING THEMSELVES VERY HIGHLY and expecting more from men…

Can I just say, I recently found out that in this new current high school generation it is considered “NORMAL” to make out with multiple girls and dances, I am sure that includes feeling the girls up. This is absolutely disgusting behaviour and what is anyone doing about it? Well I can tell you this my 16 year old son and 14 year old daughter were just telling me tonight about the CRAP they were being taught in a school assembly a few days ago. They had some “transgender” assembly and in my son’s words “It would have been alright to have them tell us their stories, about what happened to them and how it made them feel, but then it got really weird, they were talking about surgeries and taking skin from (I forget where) to construct the male body parts…”. This world is SO messed up and I am getting really tired of it. All that to say it is no wonder people are so far from the healthy sexuality path in regards to respecting others, having real relationship instead of “sex” etc.

So….that’s why I haven’t had a GF every second week! I’m not a whiny narcissist, and I have self respect. Damn!

Brilliant Gavin. Your daughter is blessed to have you.
So spot on!

the politics of me. it’s all about me and what you can do for me.
and you…what do you think about me? did you like the picture of me I posted…do I look good in this car…is this house big enough for me…?
individualism is the death of the family unit.

Take a look at the whores in the media. Glamorizing being sluts.

And so men follow along.

Women generally follow media trends and have a difficult time thinking for themselves. When women start thinking for themselves, guys playing “bang bang” may diminish.

Good one Gavin !
But you don’t go far enough.A life of sleeping around is destructive.
You say"ya your young ,party ,do it all"but then break your habits and attitudes,…grow up.
Better not at all than living with a history of garbage ,where you disrespect yourself and others!
