become this sexist? Are we going to turn into Saudi Arabia and ban women from driving? Maybe begin female circumcision?
Such a moronic argument. Ive seen idiots of both sexes do this kind of thing. Ill just chalk this up as an OP who is either:
a) sexually frustrated,
b) has mommy issues
c) is gay and angry at women.
d) all off the above
I think he is making a simple rant, but with the unfortunate mistake of doing it in public in a way that will endure well past point where he cools
down and returns to sensible rational thought again. He is probably none of those things mentioned above, if I go by experience with years of ranting
myself and listening to others rant. It is just knee-jerk reaction if you see or experience someone of a certain race, religion, gender or some other
readily identifiable trait different from yours, doing something utterly maddening, to have that unfortunate moment of condemning everyone else who
matches that general description.
I admit to ranting all kinds of unfortunate nonsense I do not truly believe or ever act upon on the occasions someone really gets my goat. Like if I
see a teen litter bug and I go on a rant about teens. I know darn well and good that there are great teenagers out there who do more for the
environment than I ever will, and yet the things I let fly out of my mouth or cross my mind in the heat of the moment put me into shame when I cool
down and come to my senses. I'm an aunt to teens and treat teens with respect unless they do something to merit otherwise. But if you were to hear
me rant about one, you'd think I was a complete bigot against them.
I could be wrong but I'd like to give this man the benefit of a doubt. He clearly loves his car and put a lot of time and effort and money into
caring for it. I don't agree with the way he chose to express his outrage but I sympathize with how upset he feels. And I am a woman. Also nobody
can offend me if I choose not to take offense. And I don't. This too, shall pass.
