The very first time I had ever heard this saying was in a video game of all places. Def Jam Fight For New York was the title and the main antagonist; Crow, played by Snoop Dogg, was explaining his underhanded dealings to the player-controlled character. As any man can guess, this is the underlying law of nature, simply another way of stating the obvious; eat or be eaten as everyone is in a war for survival.
Every man for themselves, right?
Here is the deal; women are obsessed with power, nothing new to see here, but what I think we as men fail to realize is how this obsession in some cases manifests itself in life. Why do women seem to ignore or even enjoy male suffering at the direct hands of women by and large while ANY form of male success which simply makes women feel bad seems like a travesty? Any one on the Manosphere has encountered this sort of attitude from women. They will actively call out men as some may enjoy something as relatively harmless such as schadenfreude of a woman’s bad decisions in the SMP, but will say nothing when men are injured, disenfranchised, or maimed and find humor in such a horrific fate.
Why do women do this?
Ride or get Rode on is their attitude about the situation gang, do not forget this one simple fact. A man ‘hurting’ a woman is seen as a display of ‘male superiority’ and a reminder to them about the evil ‘Patriarchy’ while any woman’s victory over anything male related (no matter how horrific) is seen as ‘taking back their power’ or ‘sticking it to the man’, reason, fairness, or consequence need not apply. We’ve all understood the idea of NAWALT that yes, not all women will abuse the system and castrate their hubbies physically or financially, but how many women stand up to even disagree when any man has faced a gross miscarriage of justice? The crickets are the only audience from womankind during any sort of travesty men face, and then these same crickets become deafening when womynkind actually attack men for disagreeing with said injustice.
Take a look at this example from a support group for Catherine Becker on Facebook (H/T Scarecrow.)

This is what I’m referring to exactly, women are reveling in their obvious power over men because this to them is proof positive that men no longer have the same dominance they once had over them. Remember gents, we men have rarely if ever exalted a serious negative situation which ever befell a woman.
As I stated before, supremacy is womankind’s only means of protecting themselves from male domination, so men really need to understand this when dealing with Feminism. This is an attitude that Western men need to recognize for what it is and realize that women will never change so long as it works to their benefit, or more importantly, DOESN’T work to their detriment. Feminism isn't about equality, it's about supremacy full stop.
