12 Reasons Why Divorced Women DO NOT Rock.

 12 Reasons Why Divorced Women DO NOT Rock.

Hey Baby... maybe it's YOU.
Hey Baby... maybe it's YOU.



Today's video is called, "12 Reasons Why Divorced Women DO NOT Rock."

I recently came across one of those article titles that you sometimes find yourself clicking on even though you know, deep inside, you will not agree with it. The article "12 Reasons Why Divorced Women Rock." was not surprisingly found on the Good-Men-Project-dot-com, or as I call it the Good Mangina Project. A lot of their articles have this air of what you can do to improve yourself, but mainly for HER benefit. I had not been to the site in probably a year, but it appears it is more of a Mangina site than ever.  Guest articles and links to articles on websites for women, with titles like "13 Annoying Things Guys Do That Make Women Hate Them A Little", and "Why I Want My First Marriage To Be Money And My Second To Be For Love."  Good Grief.

Anyway, back to the Good Mangina Project article. The articles starts with the bold subheading  of "Mark Radcliffe considers it an honor, to date a divorced woman. Here’s why.", 


I am so intrigued.

He goes on to say that, if we just look past the stigma, being divorced can actually be a stamp of awesomeness!  Love that Mangina  logic.

#1. You’ve experienced loss, and rebounded from it. 

Whoopee. Big deal. Who hasn't.  Heck, when I was a kid, I lost a Wayne Gretzky rookie hockey card.


#2. Hey at least you dared to get married! 

Sorry, but if people can get married in a Los Vegas drive-thru, or even marry themselves, then it's not that brave, or difficult, a thing to do. We live in the age of the 'starter marriage.'

#3. You know it’s better to be alone for the right reasons than with someone for the wrong.

So, apparently, no man has ever been the initiator of a divorce, and apparently no woman has ever cheated on her husband and been divorced for that reason.  Mark has women on such a high pedestal, we'll need to get the Sky-Jack out.  He over-reaches and speculates that maybe she is "becoming a better person each day" that she's on her own. Well, if that is the case, then I am Jesus.

#4. You now know (if you didn’t before) that love takes work.

Gee, I think I have heard that line on just about every drama and sitcom on television.  How do we know if she simply didn't put in the work? Perhaps her husband failed to "obey", or failed to "venerate" her all the time?

#5. You had the balls (irony intended) to walk away from something that wasn’t working.

Yes, it takes guts to leave a marriage, knowing you will walk away with half the assets, child support, and if you are lucky, a lifetime of alimony.  Mark, adds more platitudes, saying it means she has standards, and principles.  Approximately 50% of women cheat while married.  Maybe she had standards about who she would cheat with, but it doesn't say much about her principles.  Mark doesn't have the balls to mention this. Irony intended.

#6. Maybe you’ve recognized that you’ve made a mistake

Okay, now that is just troubling. If she made a mistake, she either gave up too easily, or she is simply a bad judge of character. If I enter a relationship with her, do I get the benefits of being compared to her 'ex' who wasn't a bad guy after all? Will she run back to him the moment he makes a move. Dance-monkey. Dance!

Mark adds more platitudes saying she is clearly humble enough to accept criticism.  How did he deduce this?  Sounds like some wishful thinking on his part.

#7. You probably now have a deep knowledge of what sexually satisfies you.

Good to hear that she was ridden hard, and put away, wet.  She might not know what sexually satisfies me, but then again, it's all about HER isn't it?

#8. You now know what “Mr. Wrong” looks like, so you’ll better able to spot “Mr. Right.”

Okay, so she spent the years that she was at her peak sexual marketplace value with some 'bad boy', and now that she is aging, starting to sag, getting wrinkles, and generally fatter, only now, I can have her? No thanks.

Mark even manages to sprinkle in some good old fashioned misandry, and says she doesn't have to stand by her man, "Because a lot of guys don't deserve to be stood by."    I guess when he said that love takes work, and requires making compromises, he meant just the guys making the compromises.



#9. Or maybe you yourself realize you weren’t such a peach, yourself.

How unlikely is that! In 10 years of dating, I never met a divorced woman who accepted any blame for her divorce.  Mark mentions that she realizes she has things to work on in her character, personality, or attitude.  But, he only mentions this because he follows up with a jab at men.  Quote. "We have shit to work on too. It's nice to have some company."

 Just what I want.

A fixer-upper.

#10. You know what it’s like to watch love slip away,

Okay, if she did, what did she do to prevent that? Or, is this a literal interpretation of her getting caught in the act with another man, by her husband?  I'm sure she saw the love slip away in that moment.

#11. Because you look wonderful when you walk down the street alone, unafraid, cool and confident.

Sounds like Mark might be moonlighting as a romance novelist. Or perhaps, he writes commercials for antiperspirant, or panty-liners. Mark, put your finger in your mouth and leer at her, then tell me how cool and confident she looks as she nervously slinks away.

#12. So you’ve got a few scars. They make you more interesting.

Depends on the scars.  Are they psychological, and deep enough that she trusts no man, to the point of extreme paranoia, or jealousy?  Or maybe the first time we get intimate, I'll find her starting to cry because of some horrible experience she had.  If we split up, can I expect to find a rabbit in my pot? "Fatal Attraction" movie reference for you young guys out there.  It's a movie from 1987, and if you haven't seen it, I recommend it.

In conclusion. The whole article sounds like one big sell job. It's the kind of article I would expect to find in a women's magazine. The kind of article that pumps up their self esteem with platitudes, and boosts their egos.  If something has true value, it should sell itself.  Or was this article really about Mark,  trying to convince himself?
