Manland: IKEA's Babysitting Service for Husbands and Boyfriends

(Video Link)

Sorry, guys, but this shopping trip to IKEA is going to take longer than you think. The woman in your life would like to spend a looooooong time looking at various options. Why? I have no idea, but this particular IKEA offers an alternative to the tedium. Manland is an in-house temporary daycare center that keeps men occupied with snacks and pinball machines while the ladies shop.

This is actually just a statement of objectification, sexism and prejudice.

It's like this; You can say that women are embued with a motherly instinct, but you'd have to ignore that almost all cases of neonaticide and infanticide are commited by women who are so self-absorbed and narcissistic that they cannot bear the thought of being a mother and having to care for another human being, along with all the social connotions that go with it. In other words, their own self-presentational and narcissistic concern trumps their so-called "motherly" instinct and results in a dead baby.

It is so with everything; you can try to ascribe this quality to this group and that quality to that group, but you will always be wrong.

I'm sorry, Mr Awesome, but the guys in the video seems to be really happy with all this shit you call "infantilization of the modern male".

Go get your X-Box and be careful, otherwise your wife/girlfriend will let you play while she gets a real man.
