Here’s a study which will have all clear-thinking people falling off their chairs with laughter:
Men are to blame for women freezing their eggs: Inability to find males who will commit to a relationship is the most common reason for procedure, rather than career.
Delaying motherhood to focus on work is the least common reason women undergo the procedure, a Yale University study found today.
Most women who freeze their eggs are single, divorced or in broken relationships and wish to keep their options open, the research adds.
Some even freeze their eggs because they would rather be single mothers, the study found.
The researchers claim the reason for egg freezing ‘mostly revolves around women’s lack of stable partnerships with men committed to marriage and parenting’.
These findings doubtless came after asking childless single women (who are renowned for their ability for self-deception at the best of times) the question: “Have you been spending too much time on your career rather than finding a mate?” (Okay, that wasn’t the question, but I bet it isn’t far off.)
“Oh nooooo,” the maidens cried, “It’s all because the mennnnnnnn don’t want to commit!”
Lemme tell Teh Sisterhood a little truth, here: if you are a marriageable woman, a guy will commit. If you are a foulmouthed, trashy drunken slut who’s very interested in building your careeeer — which percentage of the female population, alas, seems to be growing each year — then it’s hardly surprising that men are saying, “If that’s what’s available, then I’ll… pass.” As for the methodology:
Some 85 percent of the (150) participants were single, with the remainder being in new or uncertain relationships, polygamous couples, or with men who do not want children.
No mention of age… which would probably tell the whole story right there.
Here’s what I know to be true. Most women won’t even contemplate freezing their embryos until the dreaded biological clock starts a-ticking — which means they’re older and (probably) career-oriented rather than youthfully maternal, and therefore they’re less attractive to men.
But it’s all the mennnnnn’s fault, of course, because they don’t want to marry and have children with these sad, desperate and aging harpies, so the Guilt Machine gets pointed at men like a laser beam. Except it won’t work, because men are (finally) starting to wise up to this racket. Even the beta males of the species, normally the prime target of the female “alpha fux, beta bux” mantra, are looking at this scenario and choosing to stay away.
What he’s really saying is:
…and who could blame him?
