Damning Arab Take on the American Male

"You let your women take control, and your society will unravel- it will make your men weak, and destroy your society to its core. "
(From "Happier Abroad" Forum)
What you are about to read is a rare look into how the West and its culture is perceived by an Arab who has lived and traveled all over the world and is a keen observer of society and people.
Meeting Westerners, one of the things I noticed was how insecure and emasculated they seemed to me; compared to myself and the male-dominated, testosterone-driven culture of my land.
Western men seemed fragile somehow, unsure of themselves and their worth, the vast majority of them. Some put on fake personas, some overcompensated ... none quite had the quiet confidence that people from our culture possess. On the internet, most Americans seemed to act like little bitches, little girls brought up in a Feminist perversion of nature.
I now understand why; after observing the complex dynamics of U.S. and Western society.
It was only after coming to the U.S. and studying here that all the pieces came together - a fascinating look at a dysfunctional man-hating civilization that is the polar opposite of my own culture, and will eventually lead to the collapse of Western civilization.
Where I come from, men walk proud and rule the streets and testosterone runs in the air; and strong patriarchal foundations of family and the father as ruler of the household. Men harass and aggressively follow women - it is unapologetically a man's world. Men are imbued with confidence and have high self esteem; women are (funnily enough) horny and demure; and feminine and understand the natural order of things.
In the U.S., Feminism has so corrupted the society to its core, damaged the very concept of family and the family unit and the father's role, that society as a whole is like some bizarre alien planet - where men are bland, lack personality, are anti-social, gossipy, soul-less. Men are weak and insecure deep inside. People are disconnected and paranoid, anti-social and self-absorbed.
It's a society where men have become emasculated. Bizarre and cliquish; I can sense the odd social-cultural constructs permeating the country - it is a deeply segregated and fake culture. Men cannot feel confident and assured here like in strong patriarchies; women have all the power and American men seem clueless as to how bizarre the male-female dynamic has become.
In the workplace, Americans are Automatons, like soul-less hamsters on a wheel. Fake conversations, no intellectualism, no interest in other countries, peoples, or history.
Also, terrible social and people skills - at least in California. Most people communicate via twitter and Facebook, even though most of the people on their Facebook live in the same city and a phone call away.
People are vacuous, shallow, superficial, suggestible. Men raised here are fake, insecure, lack personality; they seem to have "issues." Women are confused and messed up ..
You let your women take control, and your society will unravel- it will make your men weak, and destroy your society to its core. The patriarchy is a male conceived and enforced institution that was imposed on females, because men, and only men understand well the long-term impacts of civilization and harnessing male energies into productive family units and a stable society .... civilization itself is a result of patriarchy.
To sum if up, it seems to be that the United States is schizophrenic , like a Jekyll and Hyde monstrosity. There is no community, no camaraderie, no soul; men and women are willing servants to their corporate masters and slaves to materialism and superficiality; and incredibly conformist, reserved, and politically correct to the point of totalitarianism.
