Your feminism rant for the day is brought to you by the letter A. A stands for Angry! Can you say angry, boys and girls?
Okay here is the story: Today at work we talked about a case study where it was discovered that men aren't feeling like men anymore, and they needed to reclaim their manhood.
And why don't men feel like men anymore? Why, because women are getting degrees and going to work and earning money.
HOW DARE THEY?! WHERE DO THEY GET OFF?! WOMEN WORKING?? WHERE DID THIS NEW-FANGLED CONCEPT COME FROM??!?!?!1*&^(*&^
I guess I fail to see the true point. Men don't feel "like men" anymore, meaning men aren't as "manly" as they were decades ago. Because they don't bring home the bacon and retreat to their dens in a cloud of cigar smoke anymore?
When did men's dominance in the world come to be known as "the good ol' days"?
And since when are women sympathetic to this cause? I'm sorry, I like the next broad-shouldered sweat factory as much as the next chick, but I also like my men to actually care about who I am as a person and respect that I want to earn my own living regardless of my gender. And I want ALL men to feel this way. And if that means that men don't feel like they're the same TYPE of man that existed in the 1800s or 1950s or 1970s then SO BE IT.
The Brawny man doesn't have a mustache anymore. TIMES CHANGE.
In what way do we ACTUALLY suggest men reclaim their manhood? Forcing their wives to stay home and cook every meal? Taking out clients to strip clubs? Refraining from swearing around the "girls" in the office because it might offend their soft little ears?
Screw that. Screw reclaiming manhood. Let's reclaim HUMANITY and leave the gender roles where they belong: in our past.
