I am taking a lunch break from my yard labors and checked out this site while eating my soup and sandwich.
Thanks for your post and opinion. Let me say first...Oooh...Rah!!!!
Thank goodness someone gets it. Was begining to think that at times it is a barren wasteland out here.
Shoe collection eh!!!?? OK...dont get me wrong here..I am not against a man dressing well or snappy so so speak. I just think it takes more to be a
man than clothes.
Years ago I worked in the Mens section of a department store. Habo we called it after the word Haberdashery. Here I learned to dress up. Women tend
to very much like a well dressed man. However...it goes further than that to a knowlegable woman. Being a man requires much more...much much more. A
male who can only dress up and look pretty ...is like a new or different handbag to many women. I suppose this is where the term "boy toy " comes
into play. No thanks..not intrested in that. This type of male is to me femminized.
Dont get me wrong here...when I have time and a desire to do so, I dont mind getting dressed up smartlhy and snappily. It is just not who I am.
Most of the time I am a jeans and pocket tee shirt type of guy...like right now...jeans, pocket tee shirt and sweat bandanna. Gotta build up a sweat
to take care of this yard..here!!
I am also not against a man being cultured or what I refer to as genteel. A gentleman. I think this is a dying art now days. It has been replaced
with alot of self promotion and the fast food lane of thinking/expectations. Such self promotion..to me being the fingerprint of what both you and I
term as wild animals...or animanistic type behavior. No thanks..not for me. I suppose this is one reason I have no intrest in going to this place
called Hooters. Such obvious techniques to get me to come off my moneys does not appeal to me at all.
I am in the South...the Seabord side of Virginia. There is still to be found here in places a measure of gentility. I fear that with such an
abundance of coarse brainwashing as is being done through the media and public education...that this gentility will disappear. It will become
endangered. I dread the day as I see more and more young peoples not knowing or understanding the difference. They are becoming like a Xerox
copy...of the initial coarsness. Plant them in front of a television, feed and water them, and you get 500 copies of the same coarsness..monkey, see
monkey do. No originality or individuality going on. It is pitiful.
What is worse..is that a real woman can see this clearly..like radar navigating through the darkness. It must be a severe let down to them.
I agree with you about the television. I dont watch much of it anymore. The history channel, Discovery and occasionally when I can stomach it ..the
news. Si Fi is good on occasion too.
I dont really like to watch much sports at all with the exception of a fishing program. Love to fish and eat fish...fill the freezer etc etc.
What I dont care for in the sports programming format is the sexual appeal of the commercials. To me many of them are of the lowest common
denominator. I am not much of a beer drinker. Occasionally I have one but dont make it a career as do some I know.
However to be fair to the ad people..concerning television...some of the commercial appeal..shows more originality than does the standard programming.
Sad but true.
There are other reasons for not watching much sports but this will suffice for now.
Sir , I do not know your age but surmise that you have outgrown the usual pubscent thinking and expectations sufficient that you can see clearly the
fingerprint of what I am speaking and concerned. You are looking for someone or something more than the sandard issue wildlife of today. You find this
fingerprint severly lacking.
I say to you ..Well done Sir. It can be at times a long and lonely road out here among the wildlife......but Well done Sir. Well said.
Hello again. Good to see your post. I had not thought of conditions in the manner of which you speak. Women competiting for the remaining Alpha Males
and the pack mentality. I shall have to consider this more in depth..but I think you may be on to something here yourself. Well said here..well said.
I shall have to work on this and keep it in mind.
LOL LOL LOL...Prey...yes..I agree Whitewave..Prey..LOL LOL. I have often said or implied that men are delusional if they think they are the only
"Hunter Gatherers" out here. Many are so dumb they havent a clue.
Thank you for a woman's perspective on this.
As to ignoring the male in favor of the other females...I say..bon appetit. Have at it. Not intrested. I know how to handle those too. As I said also
before and many times. I am not intrested in drama or drama techinques. Male or female. Lord I hate drama queens. Ive got enought of them at work.
Lord spare me Drama Queens of this world.
I agree..with you in your reasoning that this kind of plan can be very dangerous for women. For the very reason you state but also for another
reason..one I dont think many women ever think about as their reasoning does not extend this far...due to the built in defaults.
Whitewave..the problem I see is that the females want more power and control over men and more directly. With power and control comes more
responsibility..this is the default not considered by women ..because of natural blindness/default. They as a whole ,want power and control without
the responsibility...translate that risk. Most women are not talking about risk here...they want more control and authority over men without risk.
I am not talkng about sexual risk..but real working risk daily. I have found that with many woman when you put them in a position of real risk...they
would rather go the sexual route..it requires less work and less risk. Translate that less commitment.
In order for women to get more goodies..ie options without risk..the men must take on more and more. How is this going to happen in a generation of
femminized males?? Sex and sexuality are a poor substitute for male risk. Even the dumbest male catchs on eventually. She must have more. A very
difficult concept in a empty carcass.
I suppose this is why places like Hooters have no appeal to me considering the risks I take for my moneys. I have found that when I start hitting
women up with the concept of risk ..most of them back up and back off very quickly. All of them..no...these are the ones I will watch closely for
thier real "potential" real intrinsic value.
I agree with you Whitewave ...a new paridigm is in order here. I would not expect such to come from the media and educational system. It must come
from individuals like us. Well said Whitewave...well said.
My yard work calls and my lunch is long since devoured. I must get back to my labors.
Thanks to you and TkainZero for your posts,
