Controversial author Suzanne Venker’s book “The War on Men” irked the nerves of feminists everywhere by implying that females are inferior to males. In her new book, titled “How to Choose a Husband and Make Peace with Marriage”, Venker encourages women to “surrender” to their femininity and let men be men — if they want their marriages to succeed.
In her op-ed piece for Fox News titled “Let’s call a truce in the war on men,” Venker noted that females, in general, are nurturing and relational beings, who like to gather and nest and take care of people. While men are “loners” who are “content to mill about in their man caves. They like to hunt. They like to build things and kill things.”
Venker says that men can’t carry babies or nurse them, but they can provide for them. So let them.
Venker believes that women should be more complaisant in their roles as nurturers. Just as men are motivated by their primal instincts to be hunter/gatherers who kill to provide for their families.
She suggests that women “shouldn’t let their success in the workplace become the biggest thing in their lives.” The biggest thing in a woman’s life should be giving birth and nurturing life — even if she chooses not to be a mother.
Venker asserts that the male and female gender roles are “equal, but different” — and she recommends that women “surrender” to men if they want to achieve everlasting love — which is earned, not given.
“We live in a new world,” writes Venker, where “women are struggling more than ever with how to rectify their desire for independence with their desire for love.”
“Just because you make your own money doesn’t mean your guy can’t pay the bill.”
