True or False: women need men as much as fish need bicycles?

    I think... women need men about as much as men need women. No more, and no less.

    That is, most people are happier if they're in a relationship (or, at least, getting sexed up on the regular), and most people are at least mostly heterosexual, so most women are better off with a man in their lives--but most men are also better off with a woman in their lives.

    And, since men and women have (on average) different strengths and abilities, a household with both a man and a woman will be more likely to have all necessary skill sets and abilities covered than one with only one person, or with two men or two women. It's not guaranteed, either way, but... it tends to help.

    And, of course, if there are children involved, two parents are generally better than one, and (because of the different abilities thing, as well as having both male and female role models), 2 opposite-sex parents are a bit better than 2 same-sex parents, all else being equal.

    But, well, women have no greater inherent need for men than men have for women. Women don't "need a man around the house" to take care of them, or to tell them what to do, or whatever. An unmarried woman is no more likely to be unhappy, unhealthy, or otherwise in bad shape than an unmarried man, and possibly less so (statistically, married men live longer than single ones, but single women live longer than married ones). And so on. The saying "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle" came from, well, societal attitudes that suggested that women who didn't have, and weren't in the process of obtaining, A Man, were somehow defective or broken or whatever, while being a "confirmed bachelor" was seen as a perfectly valid and acceptable choice.

    True. Sadly, in this day and age- there is zero house work done at all by woman (pro feminists). Men do it ALL... Working 50 hours a week, doing everything with the kids, and all their normal duties and they are mocked and shamed, called lazy if they do not even do ONE single bit of the above all the while she sits on her fat a:s:s and literally does nothing and she can't even have sex with him or give a damn bIow job.

    Women are not equal or independent because men in society treat them as such (mangina's). On top that woman act this way as well. Aka these mangina's hate woman and think less of woman and woman feel the same way about their selves. It's time they be treated that way. Make them work for their own, get off their fat lazy asses and earn their way.

      I dont do any housework, aside from cooking when I feel like it. Neither do any of my male friends. their wives do that stuff, or if they dont have wives they have cheap maids

    ya..womne dont nerd men unless they want children and want those children to bc provided for properly and protected. They dont need men but unless they are part of the lesbian community which is less than 1% of the population they wouldn't be able to have sex. They dont need men unless there is war and their country is invaded, bc the invading army will have to be stopped by male soldiers. If they ever want a job to support ehmselves they will need men bnc the vast majority of successful entrepreneurs and business owners are men. $ven if they rely on government handouts they will need men bc men pay the vast majority of taxes too. If there were no men women would not have plumbing, running water, there would be garbage everywhere, everyone would be homeless bc men do almost all construction polubming, sanitation, roofing, bricjklating, architecture, etc. There would also be no great art and entertainment since thats pretty much all men too. the whole world would be an anarchist shythole bc its men who make and enforce laws, and create enlightened forms of governments so there would also be no freedom. just one generation of chaos and shyt and the human race would be extinct. so unless a women is a a lesbian with a big trust fund from her parents she will need men, not just a man but men in general

    True.

    Even if they wanted a child, there are sperm banks.

    The bank would need depositors though.
