Congrats, Empress! I've been keeping my eye on that number -- can't wait to see it hit 1000!

And they are not truly "strong" if they are independent, as you know. The same is true of men, though in different ways. A marriage is a unity of two souls into one; it is a shackling of oneself to someone who cannot run away so that the man and woman must both contend with their inner monsters -- and come to dominate them. Marriage is a willingness to recognize there is more to the world than oneself. If you don't recognize this, the things you fight for will always be simple and easy -- and you cannot become strong.

Man needs woman and woman needs man -- for there to be a future, for there to be meaning, for there to be strength, for people to be whole.

No one is born whole, but those determined to be purely independent will never be strong.

You summed it up so incredibly well. In the near future, we're gonna have to fight to remove 'no-fault' divorces so that a disinterested wife can't leave on a whim and get half. If she abandons her husband, she gets nothing- the way it used to be (when divorce was almost unheard of).

It took me a good while to figure out how to contend with my inner monsters when we were first married. Had no idea how selfish I was and am amazed and grateful for my husband's patience. We had a very bumpy first year or two and looking back, almost a decade later, am so glad we stuck it out. We understand each other now and have learned to work with one another and are better and stronger people for it.

Congrats, Empress! I've been keeping my eye on that number -- can't wait to see it hit 1000!

Thank you! I can tell you one thing, it would never have been so successful without @Le_Squish, @Trigglypuff, @FunkyPurpleKitty, and the incredible members of the community.

I woke up this morning to see awesome trump tweets and nice shiny subscriber numbers. The slow creep of progress.

Feminists go out of their way to become unappealing to the opposite sex. It takes work to look that bad.

With King being such a feminist I'm sure that would be an easy write for him.

Am looking forward to the post-feminist regret movement that is sure to come.

"I was always really anti-feminist."

"Me too! You just couldn't say anything about it because those feminist were crazy."

"Yeah, we're totally normal now."

That is very funny, /u/Empress

However, perhaps it is too close to the truth.
