Why are most men so emasculated?

I ride everywhere I go. In hi-viz clown outfits. So I get lots of people telling me that they've always wanted a motorcycle 'but the wife won't allow it.' I'm not sure if so many men are really this pussified that they can't do what they want to do, or if they are just making excuses.

what do you do when guys say this to you? commiserate with them? tell them to grow a pair of balls and take charge of their lives? tell them to divorce the domineering beotch and enjoy the rest of their lives?

This should be in Jo momma.

However, I think most men who are emasculated are that way because they prefer to avoid confrontation. It starts before they get married with the woman using sex to keep a man in his place. Later it is because they hate the fight.

On the other hand, many just use that as an excuse to not do something that scares them a bit too much. Basically they are actually afraid, but do not want to show it in front of their men friends.

I agree.

To add to the typical coworker situation where their wives won't let them have/do anything cool (motorcycles and music gear is a common theme), the guy who sits closest to me is followed by his wife on his cell phones GPS to make sure he doesn't go out to eat for lunch. She calls to verify his location. I guess it's "easier" to avoid the fight. RIP...

That's insane to have someone keep tabs on him like that.

That is abuse, plain and simple. Unless the guy has some ridicuous eating disorder and she is trying to keep him alive, that is basically stalking.

reminds me of my ex-wife. i've mentioned before about how we'd both agreed that we didn't want kids. a couple of years after the wedding, she told me that she'd stopped taking birth control, started taking fertility drugs and if i didn't like it, i could leave. we had a long conversation that night.

Apparently, she wasn't done talking, because when I woke up the next morning, she'd hidden my wallet and keys. She wasn't going to let me leave for work until we talked. After some yelling, she 'gave me' my keys and my drivers license.' It took some more yelling and threatening, then she came in with my wallet and $10 (for lunch) , but no credit cards, etc.

I found the rest of my cash and credit cards, went into work and told them I was taking a personal day, cancelled our joint credit cards, opened a new credit card in my name only(and had it sent to my office address), and went and found an apartment that afternoon.

That sounds familiar,long time ago a buddy had a girlfriend,she didnt want him doing ANYTHING with out her,all the time you and me baby.
Him and I would do our annual jaunt to Laguna Seca for the 3 days of roadracing/drinking/bufoonery.
About a 4.5 hour drive from Chico.

We would be wandering around like guys do at these things and there she would be,on the highest spot around with her radar on,scanning the crowd for him.Excellent Radar to find us in a crowd of 40,000 people at random.
Said she just drove over to say hi. This happened pretty much anywhere he went with out her,she would take time off work to chase him down.

One time he said hi and walked away with out her,crying/fit throwing went on for weeks when he went home.

Her family had money,he married her and has done well financially,she is just about as whacko as she ever was.
He acts like the goose that laid the golden egg,has it made to listen to him. I wouldnt trade places for anything in the world. Life is too short by a mile to deal with all of that. Psycho bitches are maybe funny on TV........

Sometimes you gotta break cover and run like the wind.

At on of the summer jobs I had in my college years I worked with a guy that a had a wife like this. Worse. Just insanely, violently jealous (definitely not rich though). She did all kind of whacko stuff like setting the TV channel and taking the knob with her when she left the house so he couldn't watch the "good looking" newscaster. The only time I met her was a McD's and she had full hitting, kicking, screaming meltdown on Steve when he thanked the cashier girl.
Steve gave me a sob story about the financial straits they were in (he also had 4 kids, 2 his, 1 hers and 1 theirs; he was 32 yrs old working as an entry level laborer) so I gave him a ride to work every day, never charged him for gas. Thing is, our job was a 20+ mile drive east of my house. Steve lived about 5 miles west of me. After 2 months of this my car and bike aren't running but my mom lets me use hers for a couple of days. Unfortunately my parents needed both cars on Saturday so I asked Steve if there is any way he could drive.
"Sure but you have to get a ride to my house"
"For crissakes, Steve,I live a mile of the expressway"
"Well okay, I'll pick you up at the Hardee's at that exit."
I was steaming, but I had my dad drop me at the Hardee's. Steve ends up as a no show so I walk home and my dad relents and lets me use his car. I walk in to work very late and guess who's there? When I gave him a WTF? he just laughed, shrugged and said "Bummer, I forgot."

That night I'm out with my GF and I have her make a couple of phone calls to his house asking for him and then hanging up when the wife wants to know who's calling.
Steve's a no show on Monday. He had called the house after I left, wondering where I was. Tuesday he shows up bitching at me about "ditching" him. Told him to F*** off and get his own ride. Thing is, his faced and neck looked like he went 10 rounds with a big cat. Scratches every where. He did tell some of the other guys that the wife had gone nuts when some girl called at the house for him.

Is there not some old line about an irresistable force colliding with an unmoveable object?

Somebody needs to tell him how to turn the GPS function off. Or at least wrap the phone in foil and go to lunch.

Someone needs to tell that guy the phone number to a good divorce lawyer because psycho-wife is just going to get more insecure and paranoid.

Crazy girls!!! Seriously, why would you allow someone to track your every move? I couldn't imagine ever being this insecure...grow a pair, shut the tracker off and tell her if she doesn't like to head out the same door she came in thru.
