Lord help me! If I didn’t have a blog, who knows where this tirade would have ended up! So, I and those that may be the object of this conversation should be eternally grateful that I am able to vent in such a controlled forum. Ha-ha.
Ladies, let’s address this here bullshit: have you ever been the target/recipient of male chauvinism in the work-place? You know the type that comes at you for no other reason than the fact that you wear a skirt – no! let’s be personal – heaven forbid, a dress! The type of machismo that only exists because the bearer of same believes that what he carries around in his pants is superior to the delicate flower carefully encased in silk (even though cotton breathes better) under the afore-mentioned dress!
The reason I say it has to be a ‘dick-thing’ is not simply born of frustration; even though there is quite a healthy bit of that! The reason is this – the perpetrator is typically of inferior intellect and lacks the ability to process and think critically. So, what do these men do when they are unwittingly exposed by a woman? They attempt to brow-beat and trump with the only tool they have left. Pitiful!
I don’t know about you all, but I find a weak man (and make no mistake, that is exactly what they are) one of the greatest wastes of manhood. But, before any of you rise up against me, let me categorize my idea of male weakness: a man who shirks his responsibility, a man who attempts to deflect his mistakes by pointing the finger at others, a man who has more excuses for than reasons to, a man who is willing to work an honest day; but wants a week’s pay, a man who whines and bitches, a man who constantly seeks accolades for his little deeds. I could keep on; but in a nutshell – a weak man (in my opinion) is a man who is more in touch with his proverbial ‘feminine side’ than I am!
There is a great quote that goes like this, “I don’t have enough middle fingers to let you know how I feel…” ; indeed! What the hell is it about certain men and cultures that balk at the reality of a confident, self-aware, independent and successful woman moving through her life?! Listen, I understand and respect that men are “natural born kille..”, oops, hunters, but I reject that that then translates into their being dominant. I mean, even in intimacy, if you’re doing it right, dominance is a shared reality 😉
Okay; I’ve verbally vomited. I am still highly frustrated by this reality, but will use that emotion as impetus to continue on. After all, if one is threatened so much it must mean that you are truly bad-ass!
