I was inspired to write this by my wife of course. I put together all of my evil suspicions about her and projected them upon the whole of the female
species. I can't remember the number of times I've come home exhausted from work, only to hear her whine that she's got a headache and needed me to
watch after the kids, make dinner and, oh yeah, can you vacuum the carpets while you're at it?
She would constantly complain about how hard her days were but, I couldn't help but notice that it seemed that no housework had gotten done during her
"oh so hard day". The house was just as messy or messier than when I'd left for work and no laundry was done or folded and the dishes were still piled
up in the sink after her "hard day of slaving in the house".
I got the idea of the male revolution from G.K. Chesterton's book What's Wrong with
. Particularly the chapter about women's suffrage in which he explains how men pretended that their going out to vote was such an
important thing that the women were fooled into wanting it for themselves.
He said that women gave up their moral authority to have a say in
politics, losing a lot of their power in the deal.
It had always struck me as odd that the amendment giving women the right to vote was passed just one year after women had shoved the prohibition
amendment down our throats and I wondered if men hadn't pushed the suffrage amendment through in order to steal the moral authority away from them to
make sure they were never powerful enough to pull another stunt like that ever again.
Anyway, I wrote this as a chance to vent about my marriage and hopefully to entertain the few members who stop in to read my silly writings.
I hope you all found this story worth your while to read, no matter what your feelings on the subject matter.
Oh yeah, for those of you who are curious; there is no way in HELL I'm ever going to show this thread to my wife.
