The proportion of children born outside marriage in the UK has leapt from 12% in 1980 to 42% in 2004, according to the Office for National Statistics
That’s what you get when you make marriage so risky and lacking in any benefits for men; they don’t want to marry. You get babies born to cohabiting couples.
That’s also what you get when you reward girls with plenty of taxpayers cash for whelping bastards. You get babies born to single girls with no intention of bothering with a father and often as a sole means of getting welfare benefits.
Feminism wanted this all along, to set up the conditions and force the government to offer the incentives that will result in the breakdown of the family, push men out of their children’s lives and create a generation of kids bought up by single mothers. Even now they refuse to accept or acknowledge the simple fact that so many social ills can be blamed on fatherlessness.
As you can see, the most feminist-infested country in all Europe, Sweden, tops the list at illegitimate bastard production:
Other statistics include:
The ONS said that in the 1980s and 1990s one-person households mainly comprised older women, who tended to live longer than men.
Well obviously. Women avoid hard and dangerous work and get millions spent on their health. Of course they live longer.
Some seven million people lived alone in 2005 – representing 29% of all households, up from 18% in 1971 – the ONS said.
The marriage strike is definitely working. Almost a third of us Brits live alone, including yours truly.
Of course, the media will always try to portray spinsters as living it up whilst bachelors are miserable losers, but common-sense concludes the opposite is true. Us bachelors are quite content living alone and free, whilst spinsters are the ones whining “I can’t find a man willing to commit. Sob!”
The ONS’ Social Trends study also reported that young men were more likely to live with their parents than young women.
Some 57% of men aged 20 to 24 lived with their parents in 2005 – up from 50% in 1991 – compared with just 38% of women – up from 32%.
This is linked to the earlier point about women and girls being rewarded with instant housing from the council when they get pregnant with some bad boy’s bastard. The BBC tries to express it in a snidey way that implies women are all empowered and independent and blah blah blah, living away from home, whilst silly men are living with mummy and daddy. In fact, with almost half of kids born out of wedlock, clearly the majority of these supposedly empowered women who have fled the nest are just sluts who fancied a free house and sixteen-years of benefits from the government, an option obviously unavailable to men.
In spring 2005, one in five full-time employees reported usually working more than 48 hours a week.
Pity they didn’t report a breakdown of the sexes for this little piece of info. I dare say very few women regularly work more than 48 hours per week.

It seems that the leading countries in out of wedlock birth are those where prostitution is most repressed.
