Who says I hate women?
Because I don’t.
I’m always amused when people throw the M word at me. The word is thrown around so often, and it so often completely misused. Misogynistic mean to have hatred of women. The Misogynistic definition makes the word seem like it shouldn’t be used very often. Are there really people our there that hate women? I suppose there are some evil women in the world that deserve to be titled this way. Their actions most likely speak for themselves.
However, most men are like me-they don’t hate women. Just the opposite-they love ’em and cannot get enough of them. And most, like me, were raised to be polite to women, use the word Ma’am, hold the door, pay for dinner on a date. Its the way of the world.
To believe that their are roles that men should play and roles that women should play is not, by definition, misogynism. It is an acknowledgment that men and women are different and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Its also not a use of the “M” word to marvel at the irony of the fact that men have simple needs and want to be rewarded for doing what the women want them to do. With sex. Often. If more women understood and acted in accordance with that guiding principle-the world would be a better place.
And it would seem, statistically at least, a lot of men agree with me.
At least on the whole sex should be more often thing. Which is probably why some societies are happier than others. They broke the code.
Again though, it does not mean that men hate women just because they are disappointed with them.
It just means that there is only so much disappointment they are going to tolerate, with out getting back to what’s really important.
Taking care of their needs. Themselves. In what ever way is appropriate for their own values.
That’s not hatred of women either. It is the law of supply and demand.
And like the taxpayers-they hate giving bailouts with out return.
How could anyone hate this?
I know I certainly cannot!
