Why Modern Women Hate Men

“Men are trash” seems to be the personal slogan of many boss ladies today.

A woman entered the restaurant where my friends and I were; she looked impressive, like a rich businesswoman—she wore heels, a pencil skirt, a handbag that cost many people’s rent, and professional makeup that I had only seen at weddings.

We were waiting for a table at the bar, and she sat next to us to order a drink. After her order was taken, she sighed and looked at us.

“You all look young and happy. If I could give you some unsolicited advice, it would be never to get married and continue living in that happiness. Men are trash.”

We all laughed and toasted her.

But although we all continue our lives as if this had been an insignificant event, I couldn’t stop thinking about that phrase for the rest of the night.

Men are trash.

I have seen a trend around many women on social media and people close to me: the more power they have, the more they despise men.

My grandmother used to say something similar: When a woman can take care of herself completely, she feels she doesn’t need a man in her life anymore. Those who still dream of marriage are because they are not “successful enough” alone.
