The males to whom I admire and respect are not television characters. They are real living and or once living persons...humans..not celuloid,
To reply to some of the posters here...no some people do not know the difference in what one watchs on the boob tube and what one experiences out here
in the world. There are people out here who's perception of reality is altered by a drug like television and movies. You could tell this by the
stories of kids fighting, stealiing and sometimes killing another, for the latest status garnered by the latest products advertised on the boob
tube...in magazines or on the radio.
This is a symptom of what happens to a people whos mind is altered by a drug ...misused in subtilty by the media to modify behaviors.
So many of us live a huge amount of our time in front of this box which has the ability to alter our perception of the world surrounding us. How much
more so for our children and women. You guys wonder why your women and children have television values and thinking...Why??...because many of you have
television values and thinking.
Up to you but I would recommend taking more time with your family and removing them from the influence of this box on thier brains and souls. A
difficult thing to do when you are mostly working and taking care of buisness yourself..or when you are home ...you are sitting in front of it.
Give you an example of thinking and understanding...about maleness...or being a man...from page 5 of this thread. The post by Comm12. Observe this
quote by Comm12.
As far as women being suppressed goes, yea we all know the harsh reality of that situation in past and present times
I dont know about women being suppressed ...especially today. So obviously that quote is not true. This is an erroneous assumption. I dont see it
happening around me...especially when I go into any store ...like Macys or Dillards..even the famous ..Wally World.
What I see is women who work..and often have the discretion over two incomes or sources of money by which to make purchases...their money if they work
and their mans moneys if he works. I dont see any downtrodden victimization among women.
Furthermore ..in past times ...both women and men had to work very hard to sustain a family. Yet both today and yesteryear..men so often perished
before the woman. Are we debating for such equality that the women perish at the same rate or before the males?? Women back then worked much harder
than women today and also much harder than many men today work.
Nonetheless once you take of the television bliinders put on us and our subconsciousness...you realize that no matter what the rhetoric...the women
and media doing and taking such advantage of the brainwashing going on...are not debating for the increased RISK taken by men in earning their
moneys. Not happening. The tack is to play through by default...on your ignorance. To cultivate ignorance in you so as to play through undebated.
My sister and neice both tried this recently at my parents house ..the standard femininst line and blaming men for all the woes going on in the
I cut them off quickly by asking them what they were going to do about it?? I also pointed out that talking about it was not solving the problem to
which they were complaining. What were they going to do about it ..what RISK were they going to take in solving this problem verses transfering blame
to others. The tack among such crisis management techniques is to get someone else to take care of it for them...ie..the government...some government
program defaulting over to them. Translate that they dont want to suffer inconvenience or RISK to solve such problems. Once you understand this...you
understand more than anytthing the media will teach you.
One of the problems with being male ...or a man is that you are often bombarded by such nonsense statements as I have taken the liberty to quote. Most
males are totally silent when this happens. I am not wont to be silent.
My own sister is a hard core femminist and often wont to play through unchallanged on such nonsense. I told my sister that this is not a patriarcal
society..it is a matriarcal society in stealth ...trying to pass this society off as patriarcal to conceal the matriarcal nature of things out
You know this when you turn off the televisoin and movies and do some real thinking. The media pushing such nonsense about male bashing are not
arguing for women and children ...taking huge RISKS and or inconveniences for the goods and services under which they live to make thier lives more
comfortable and leasurely. THey are promoting the position of defaulting by assumptions that males are incompetent...therefore they, the women and
children, by default... are deserving of moving ahead...or at least moving the males behind...moving those behind who actually take the RISKS for the
standard of living enjoyed by so many.
The technique is to make those taking the RISKS ..silent and invisible and those getting the bulk of the benefits ..visible seen..promoted. This is
nothing but merchandizing...brainwashing..advertising.
Economics=politics=public education..and most of us anymore get our educations from in front of a boob tube..or at least our perception of realithy.
is skewed by such.
It is far more insidious on our women and children..since they sit still for more hours of this brainwashing. This is primarily the males fault ..for
allowing this while he is working and taking risks.
You want them to grow up..make them suffer more inconvenience and RISK. They will not have as much time for this brainwashing drivel.
In short..cut them off of much of the television/movie brainwashing.
Something to think about ,
