Man Bad, Woman Good

Buona Sera, class. Your not-so-humble professor has been under the weather. And irritable. And lethargic. Maybe a remedy would be to write something. And this one is going to irritate some people. Sorry, but I tell the truth as I see it. If you don't like this one, the next posting will probably be quite different. I have a track record of that.
Lately, I've been hearing the feminazi propaganda that comes down to "Woman good, man bad". You're heard it: "Girls grow up into women, boys grow into bigger boys"; men are the cause of all the evil in the world, control the wealth, destroy everything good, constantly think about sex, blather, blather, blather. That's why we should have voted for Hillary Clinton. (I had to backspace to remove my expletives just then.)

The good news is that not all women feel this way. In fact, women point out that feminists are fakes. Saying that women are better than men is a discrimination in itself! And there's a great deal of that sediment — I mean, sentiment
— in the world. I wonder if part of the problem is that these women not only hate men, but are afraid of being real women?

The worst part is when the feminazis want to castrate all men and make us all like women. Then everything would be freakin' peachy. Dream on. They'd be sorry.

This mindset is causing some men to rebel, even forming men's groups to combat the predatory female (a vicious creature that I'll describe some other time). The problem is that these guys have been so burned that they think all women are predatory. Not so, Zeke. But if you knew my ex...
I'd like to point out some things. The first one is the obvious: men and women are different. John Gray has some truth on this, but I can't endorse it wholeheartedly. Some, yes.

I won't apologize for being male, for being sexual, for being a problem-solver whenever possible, for being chemically and physiologically different, for having more linear thought processes, for being less complicated. It's part of being a man. Capice?

 
"Well, men start wars".
No, people start wars. Through the ages, women have been more than willing to fight and spy for their causes. And I've seen plenty of catfights, and spiteful women who were only grown up on the outside, not the inside. And the ones that love power, like Jezebel who controlled Ahab so she could get the throne. Or Eva Braun, who didn't seem to object to Hitler's methods. Men love power and strive to attain it, and women like it too; if they can't get it, they'll get next to it.

"Men control the wealth of the world and women are oppressed."
Sure, there is a wage gap in some instances, but that is because of priorities. Otherwise, get over yourself, Sunshine. I have bad news: some of the wealthiest people in the world are women, and that number is increasing. Especially in the USA. (You know the USA? People want to sneak into the country because of the opportunities. Or it's the first place that oppressed people choose for refuge.) And this "women are oppressed" business...you're cute when you're playing the victim card, you know that?

"But men destroy!"
Yeah, yeah. So do women. And both genders create.
Now here's something for the guys: Stop feeding the stereotypes! Jeff Foxworthy and friends have some cute stories and are great comedians. Also, The King of Queens and Tim Allen's Home Improvement had some fun moments. Guess what, Studley? They're not models for life! They are entertainment. Oh, and there are plenty of self-indulgent songs out there. They're not guidelines for your life, either.
Too many guys are guys, and not real men. Yeah, you heard me. And guess what? Aside from the loud feminazis and the liberal media, it turns out that a woman wants a real man. Not a wimp. Sure, be in touch with your feelings and sensitive to hers, but stop overdoing it. And none of this "metrosexual" crap, thank God that's over.

The slob image has got to go. How about trying to emulate James Bond a little bit? (I'm not sure about the Daniel Craig image, they're re-writing the character.) He had class. So did John Steed, but not many people in the US know about The Avengers. Besides, John Steed was a bit foppish. But classy.

Guess what? I think the Cartwrights on Bonanza, those rugged, robust he-men, had a different kind of class. They had a good work ethic, integrity... almost brings tears to my eyes that those positive role models don't exist on television or in movies anymore. Men could learn from some of the positive media images from days gone by.


Irritation note: I like the bumper sticker that says, "Stop calling women 'babes', chicks hate that."
OK, both genders are angry with me. My work for this session is done. Arrivederci.
