I might as well go ahead and throw my 2 pennies into the mix.
This is my opinion.
Women (as a generality) have no one to blame but women for the way they are viewed in today's society.
I say this because of such GARBAGE as the "girls gone wild" craze. This crap is promoted to absurd levels and this constant promotion is teaching
young men how women "should" be viewed.
Naturally, the argument could be made that the men making and promoting these videos are to blame for this, however, this logic is flawed. IF those
women weren't out there turning themselves into objects for some stupid beads that cost 99 cent per dozen, the men who started this crap would have
never even had the idea.
Unfortunately, I feel the concept of a lady being a lady is quickly being lost.
These same women that do this horrid mess for the world to see for nothing more than what equates to a "doggy treat", are so quick to run around and
say "Hey don't call me a slut." Sorry ladies, but that's EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE.
The bad thing about this is, there are plenty of women who do NOT lower themselves to these standards, yet they get lumped in with this trash because
it seems like the trashiest members of the female gender are more the rule now than the exception.
It's actually pretty darn sad.
At what point in time did the fairer sex turn themselves into street walking trash just for the sake of being street walking trash?
I honestly pity the women who have been cast into the lot with this garbage.
However, where I have my problem is that I think the women that are busy blaming their problems on men, should direct that attention to the women that
are giving them a bad name instead.
Now, as far as male dominated society goes, I agree that this tends to be the rule. However, throughout history, there have been a fair number of
women who had just as much, if not more, control than men had over society.
Personally, I would LOVE to see a society headed by the right woman. Why? Because I personally have witnessed in my short time on this planet that
some women can be far more decisive and BRUTAL than any man ever could be. I would love to see the day a woman was in charge that was willing to "lay
down the law."
There are several reasons for this.
1. No one would be able to use the "gender bias" argument against her.
2. Sometimes sheer brutality and ultimate decisiveness are needed to fix problems.
To describe another problem I see that women face, I will tell you a brief story of one of my experiences.
I have always tried to be the "gentleman" when it comes to women I date.
I dated this one girl in particular for close to 3 years. In the beginning I ALWAYS went out of my way to hold the door for her, open her car door for
her, pay for dates and such as that. All my efforts resulted in were her getting mad with me for doing things for her that she could do for herself.
Basically, she told me I was slapping her in the face by being a gentleman. So, I said "okay." And I ceased with the "insult". Skip ahead two and
a half years or so and she and I begin having problems. She then decides to throw up that I never act like a gentleman anymore and she wants someone
that will "take care of her". Needless to say, I promptly booted her because she was blaming our problems on things that SHE was the reason for.
My point being, some women seem to want their cake and eat it too. They expect things to be how they want them WHEN they want them that way.
I'm sorry, but life just isn't like that.
They seem to be on a perpetual search for "perfect" and, I'm sorry ladies, but perfect just ain't there.
Now, don't get me wrong, I know these things don't apply to ALL women. But, in my time, I have noticed that they are more the rule than the
I think that for women to ever truly be happy, they need to find a common ground where they are comfortable and where they can stay.
Us men may be smart, but we aren't too bright when it comes to women simply because it seems that there is no figuring you guys out.
Perhaps you need to work on figuring yourselves out and what YOU want and then we can cater to THAT.
Until then, I feel the turmoil between the sexes will continue.
I shouldn't have to say this but I will.
I have the utmost respect for women who respect themselves. I would gladly serve under one in a job environment any day of the week as long as she
held herself to the standards that were set for her. The same goes for any man.
There is no "better" sex, however, there are vast differences between the sexes. Some of these should be worked on, while others are needed in order
for society to continue.
Ladies, I personally only feel that your place is "in the kitchen" if that is what you want for yourself. However, if you decide that that is indeed
your place in life, please don't get mad at us men for learning to expect it out of you. Because those of you that DO choose that as your place, also
put the expectation on us to live as if our place is working and taking care of the family financially.
Gender bias is truly a double edged sword. In some ways it is a good thing, in other ways it is a TERRIBLE thing.
However, basic human rights are owed to ALL regardless of gender or anything else.
Men that don't respect a woman that DESERVES respect are pathetic. However, the same can be said for any woman that doesn't reciprocate the
treatment when earned.
