Dr Helen walks into the minefield

She seems underwhelmed by women who aren’t exactly apologetic about not wanting to have sex with their husbands:

As a 28 year old woman, with the same man for 13 years and 3 kids, have a little insight on why women lose interest in sex…It gets beyond boring for us thats why. It becomes a repetitive chore, akin to washing dishes. And even though my man works, when he doesnt want to help me clean or care for the kids, why would I want to spend energy I dont have doing something that is going to feel exactly the way it did last time.

Two thoughts. First, if a woman doesn’t feel like living up to her marital responsibilities, then she has no claim to expect a man to live up to his. If he doesn’t feel like paying the mortgage that month, well, why should he?

Second, no woman like this should be shocked that her husband would rather spend time with Internet porn than her, at least the porn girls care enough to give him what he needs. As for boring, what of it? Do you quit eating because it’s just the same tedious activity, three times a day?

Rejection is very difficult for men. How many times do you have to hear no before you just quit asking? After a while, I think it would be very difficult not to conclude that the other person simply doesn’t give a damn about you.

This society is so not going to survive the first halfway-realistic robot girl.
