Telegraph women at it again

The feminists at the Telegraph’s women’s section are so far up their own arses that this awful woman writes proudly about how she treated her husband like dirt:

the next morning, Eva and I moved in with my mother. Jim begged me to stay, but I was resolute.


For weeks I only spoke to him when dropping Eva off for visits.

His heinous crime? He went out with his mates a lot. Oh, she found that he used ‘SWMBO’ – ‘she who must be obeyed’ – on a WhatsApp group to refer to her.

Was he a bad husband in other ways? Er… it appears not:

when Jim was home, he was the perfect husband

What’s more, he was the breadwinner. What a bastard, eh?

Finding out he referred to me as a nagging wife opened my eyes to Jim’s disrespectfulness.

So what did she do to prove that this was unfair of Jim, and she wasn’t a nagging wife?

I confronted him. By then I was furious, having spent hours on men’s internet forums where I’d found a world of other sexist slang, like OBC (old ball and chain) and SS (sensitive Sally). Shaking with anger, I asked how he could talk about me so cheaply.

Way to prove you’re not a nagging shrew who must be obeyed!

Did he defend himself like a man?

Sheepishly, almost on the verge of tears, Jim apologised, admitting that it was peer pressure from old mates to go drinking. He couldn’t face their disapproval. ‘I’m in my 40s, not 21. It’s pathetic,’ he said. His response took me aback, and I realised I’d been bracing myself for a row.

So she cut his balls off. Did that work?

But seeing him with his tail between his legs made me more furious. How could a grown man be so weak?

No! She cut his balls off, but now she despises him for letting her, so she walked out anyway.

After a month of crawling to her – to be fair to him, he presumably doesn’t want to lose his daughter – she takes him back, suitably neutered. And apparently she’s the hero.

Update: Can you imagine if the roles had been reversed? Woman is the breadwinner, can’t even see her old friends much because of her controlling husband, who brings no money in, stops her? Husband discovers a jokey reference to himself on her phone so he separates from her, taking the baby with him, and moves back in with his mother, and barely speaks to her?

But let’s not forget the feminist motto: no matter what the situation, the woman is always the hero. (Unless she’s a Tory.)

Update 2: David Moore in the comments discovers what sounds like the same story on a New Zealand news site, based on this anonymous story on a women’s site. It seems like it’s the same woman, only at an earlier stage in the situation. An even bigger horrer is revealed in this story:

He had always played Thursday night sport – he didn’t ever even miss one week.

This guy’s evil has left me shaking with anger.

  1. I have no idea why any man gets married these days. It brings absolutely no advantages, monetary, legal or social. It has massive downsides – loss of economic power, loss of freedom of action, threat of divorce, loss of children in divorce.

    A friend of mine just split up with his long term partner, luckily for him he wasn’t married. I went round to visit him and he was telling me he was amazed how much money he had left at the end of the month that wasn’t there when he was coupled up. Of course he’s lucky to have the house (that he paid for) to live in – had he been married he’d have been in a bedsit or the cheapest flat in town. He’d also rearranged the house how he wanted it, but was never allowed to have.

    Any man thinking of proposing should go away, have a cold shower, get a rescue dog from the local pound, (that’ll be the most grateful and loving living thing you could possibly have living around you) and give marriage (as currently constituted) up as a terrible idea.

  2. The only thing I’d say is that people who know have told me that if you have kids then it’s better to be married, because if you’re not and the woman takes off with the kids then you’re completely screwed in that regard.

  3. There’s always two sides to a story, and you expect each person’s telling to cast themselves in the more favourable light, but even on her telling of the story she comes across badly.

  4. @Sam ” It reads like a MGTOW false flag.”

    All the Telegraph ‘wimmins’ content reads like that. Try Bryony Gordon…

    The Telegraph has some good female writers – Alison Pearson & Janet Daly are probably the best writers on the rag – but the content specifically aimed at women is dire.
