Definitely worth talking about and definitely and issue in conjunction with misogyny. I think most dating "advice books" hinge on and fuel gender hatred. I think both flow from traditional ideas about gender which also confine men. Also some asshole feminist who really are just insane and fudge things up for the rest of us. There are legitimate areas where men lose out in our system like parental rights.
I love men though. Most of them are cool and they're my first and last pick for sex partners
You have a bias towards wether miss dry does on does not exist?
Apologies, I believe I unintentionally allowed my post to be open to interpretation again.
I believe Misandry exists, as does Misogyny.
I cannot however, discuss Misandry easily. Due to experience related biases about it, these were terrible experiences that happened. So essentially, I don't trust myself to discuss my thoughts in detail on this in a clear, well thought out and calm way at the current time.
Let thought and reasoning be your guide, it certainly is mine!
Always forward, never back!
I'm an idiot, but I'm willing to learn. So that separates me from the idiot who isn't.
A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '
Misandry exists. I've encountered lots of misandry from "nice girls" who are not really nice. For some reason, I only attract misandric "nice girls."
A "nice girl" once demanded I kill an innocent cockroach, because I'm a man, and all men do is kill things, apparently. "Nice girls" just want to use me for sex, and would rather I "stay positive" than hear about my problems. Meanwhile, I have to comfort and listen to whatever ridiculous thing they are crying about, like something mean someone did to their friend, or the time a parking attendant was an asshole and totally acted surly once for not paying the right parking fare.
I watched a movie, and it had scores of MALE characters were being killed. And yet, only a few females died onscreen. The makers of this movie must really hate men. I can't imagine how someone could include that in a movie and not hate men.
I know women who consider Star Trek to be a stupid TV show, but watch Honey Boo Boo and Toddlers In Tiaras all the time . I suspect they like the latter shows more because the cast consists of a much higher percentage of females.
Men are the butt of alot of jokes, usually centered on their total lack of fashion sense, knack for making a mess, inability to cook anything except on the barbecue, fixation on sports/cars, and complete emotional insensitivity. This reflects some serious biases/stereotypes that don't correspond to reality.
On the other hand, how many men would enjoy being told they are sharp dressers, good housekeepers, great cooks, very knowledgeable about music and art, and sensitive, empathetic fellows? This is the other side of the stereotype. Men who have these qualities (and most have at least some) are often not allowed to develop, enjoy, and share them without being judged or ridiculed.
Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere
