You can say a dude is good looking. It doesn't mean you gay. Only gay dudes say the shit you just said.
I like socialism, @blakfyahking .
Having a bunch of Black businesses doesn't mean anything--if everyone was Black in the US and corporations were run by a handful of Black business people, Black workers would still be exploited for their wages under capitalism. It's cool to have people of color being entrepreneurs, but that really doesn't change the dynamics of the market system.
I didn't glance over it. You said men don't have a safety net. Choosing not to do something and not being able to do something are two different things. Most men don't want to be house husbands which is why most alimony is not paid to men, but if a man chooses to go that route he'd have that option. And once again alimony is not about paying for the time, it's about compensating for what the relationship cost you in the long run. What you dudes don't seem to understand is that taking yourself off the job market for an extended amount of time can do irreparable damage to you ability to make money. It's one thing if you work at Walmart, then it doesn't matter, but if you're a professional long periods of time away can be a killer.
if you are a professional
you can do consultant work or open your own practice
which should be your goal anyways............no amount of time away from the job stops you from making money
unless you are forced to be a stay at home spouse, there's really no excuse for a grown ass adult to get paid for nothing because a court mandates it
alimony was created at a time when wives were essentially property
now it's just govt sanctioned extortion
lol how the fuck you going to be a consultant or open your own practice if you haven't even built your own brand? In most professions, you have to go out there and get the experience and the name before you can start to make moves like that. Your ass is not going to come straight out of business school, law school, medical school, etc... making the kinda money you can after you've been out in the market place putting in work.
No one said that the chick wouldn't be able to make money, but there is a difference between being able to make 60K because you're basically going to be entry level and making 200K because you got a decade of experience to go with your credentials.
That's something completely different. I'm not talking about chicks that came into the marriage offering nothing and chose not to work because they really just wanted a meal ticket. Of course nothing should be mandated for chicks like this.
I'm talking about chicks who have a means to make money and would have done so if not for the wishes of their husbands. As I specifically said before, there are plenty of men out there making tons of money that don't even want their wives to work. My brother in law is like that now. His wife is a successful graphics designer. He's about to make a few mil selling this tech start up that he's working on. He wants her to give up her job and stop working. That's his wish not hers. Now if she does so to make him happy and they get divorced 10 years from now, why shouldn't he be expected to contribute something to helping her out until she can get back on her feet and start to reclaim some of what she gave up to appease him?
