new theory about how men are controlling women

I’d like to know your opinion about one new theory about how men are controlling women.
I heard about new research of psychologists who discovered how men subdue (control, manipulate) women. These psychologists say that every person controlled by the images. However, men have usurped all areas of production of images, such as politics (image making), religion, painting, film, literature, music, and so on. There are some women in these areas too, but they do not know the secret of how to made artificial images as men. Men keep it a secret. That is why men but not women have power in this society. Men occupy all the key managerial positions in all spheres. They have greater financial opportunities than women do. In addition, men control women, totally. Men knows the secret how to create images and create them to subdue women. Men are rudely using women in many spheres of life. Women for men are a resource of cheap labor and a tool for the reproduction of the human race, nothing more. Men turning them into dumb sows, in prostitutes, in a “food processor” in his kitchen. By these images, women are programmed to be a slave of men.
Men do it unnoticed for women. Moreover, women inspired the idea that they control men.
Men are very cruel to women. They realize that artificial images are very harmful to women, that is why women grow old earlier than men, get sick and feel unhappy, however anyway men are continuing the process of creating of new and new artificial images for women to have a power over them.
What do you think about this? Thank you.

I believe its the elites that do this rather than men as a whole, and the vast majority of men in rl are lovely and treat women with respect.

Men are very cruel to women? A lot of your post has very sweeping statements. What do I think? Rubbish. Are you writing for someone?

Minnieisthedevilmouse Mon 17-Feb-14 08:01:08

I think you're looking for a fight. Men know the secret? Tsk tsk

Must try harder dear

Information for an article?

Sweeping generalistic rubbish BTW

rainbowsmiles Mon 17-Feb-14 08:04:32

My response would be "men" like all "men"? Even my husband. Does their dad tell them when they turn 5 or something?

It sounds v conspiratorial.

I think negative images of men and women permeate society. But I tend away from large conspiratorial theories. Certainly tend towards money and capitalist greed culture using any which way to control and use the masses.

So no don't think much of it.

Sorry maybe it's too early for me but none of what you have written makes sense? It's an incoherent rant with some rather odd statements.

Ballsballsballs Mon 17-Feb-14 08:38:18

Women are being turned into dumb sows? Really?

kentishgirl Mon 17-Feb-14 08:43:36

'new research of psychologists'

Which psychologists? Please link to the published peer-reviewed academic paper on this.

Oh, wait, there isn't one?

Some men control some women. It isn't universal or even in the majority. As for why this happens, there are as many reasons as the individuals themselves. Bullying ... because that's what we're talking about... is not confined to adult heterosexual relationships and cannot solely be blamed on institutional misogyny or media images as you seem to be simplistically suggesting. Bullying exists in the young, the old, the workplace, the schoolyard, friendship groups, men, women. As for 'women grow old earlier than men'... wtf?

'Why do some feel entitled to bully others?' is a far more interesting question

They realize that artificial images are very harmful to women, that is why women grow old earlier than men, ummm ... what?

nice chuckle for a monday morning :D

Amateurish at best. Smacks of bad journalism looking for quotes.

Keepithidden Mon 17-Feb-14 08:54:46

It's a kind of "temporal patriarchy", I could tell you how it worked but I'd have to then go back in time to erase your weak female minds!grinwink

Dribbling OP, looks like it was written by an angry 15 year old who's been on oo man conspiracy theory websites.

Or a student in journalism who's ( badly) trying to create an article ..... Must try harder.

MrsBucketxx Mon 17-Feb-14 09:00:24

Poorly written, and a non argument. Some men bully as do some women.

:biscuit: read what you have written and translate into English please.

MrsBucketxx Mon 17-Feb-14 09:01:06

Sorry should be biscuit

manaboutthemaison Mon 17-Feb-14 09:01:16

* too many *
Sorry. Fat fingers/ iPhone

Moreisnnogedag Mon 17-Feb-14 09:06:59

Are you on glue?

Just say no.

Offred Mon 17-Feb-14 09:07:41

I think I know what you are getting at but it is very poorly written.

It isn't a new theory.

Would be helpful if you want a proper response to link to the research you mention.

PleaseNoScar Mon 17-Feb-14 09:42:31

OP, with kindness. I think you may have a mental health issue and perhaps you could visit your GP.

FatherJake Mon 17-Feb-14 10:08:00

OP, are you related to David Icke? Surprised that there is no mention of lizards.

Keepithidden Mon 17-Feb-14 10:09:08

Offred, what's the theory you're thinking of?

MuttonCadet Mon 17-Feb-14 10:19:18

To be fair, I think it's clear that English isn't your first language.

But no, you're spouting nonsense, it doesn't really warrant a considered response.

scaevola Mon 17-Feb-14 10:20:25

Is it to do with who is "other"?

GiniCooper Mon 17-Feb-14 10:27:09

Shit, my DH must be a woman. No one has told him the secret ...
