Affairs - Men vs. Women
This is an appeal to women everywhere. I would like to hear answers to the question posed in the title.
There is no question that women have had a raw deal throughout history. They did and still do most of the domestic chores and child rearing. Men have always used the old cop out that it is simple biology. They are more "suited" for it. My personal opinion - that is BULL. Lots of men today have proven otherwise. They share housework, cooking, and parenting with their wives. Many single men and all male couples do the same. The number of men willing to share needs to grow.
Women were not "persons" and could not vote. They were not encouraged to be doctors or lawyers or airline pilots and were not admitted to the institutions that controlled those disciplines. Thankfully many of those attitudes have disappeared as well.
We need more female national leaders - I firmly believe that.
Men's attitudes to women and sex have also been totally out to lunch. Too many single guys - and married ones also - see a date as a box office ticket to sex. Many true low lives even use drugs and chemicals to achieve this. These men have crawled out from under a rock. On a similar level with these, are men who use their superior position in employment situations to do the same. The "Me Too" movement was overdue.
There is still an attitude - I believe more in the USA than elsewhere - that carving notches in your bedpost even after marriage is what men must do to prove their manhood. I can still "get" a woman. I still have it. Marriage vows be damned. These men need to grow up.
OK. Hopefully you get my drift. And by the way, I don't drift. But I would REALLY like to know why so many women are guilty of certain behaviours for which men are trashed.
A classic example - unfortunately for him - was the Tiger Woods scandal. There are lots of others - politicians and "celebrities." When it broke, the rumours were that he had cheated with something like ten or twelve women. For weeks - literally - my wife listened to female talk shows on which this was the daily topic. They always asked "Why are men such bastards?"
Here goes. Why ladies did all of your sisters sleep with him? They KNEW it was wrong but they did it anyway. They cheated on his wife and kids just as much as he did and in some cases they probably cheated on their own spouse, partner, or kids. Tiger was not their boss, teacher, or priest. I never heard that he forced them or gave them drugs. What was their rationalization?
Never did I hear an entire show devoted to this question. If you are going to generalize and refer to men as bastards, then permit me to ask why were so many women sleazy? They cheated on one of their own. What's more, it is the same for any such scandal even if there is only one man and mistress involved.
Women imply they are in some way holier than men and yet I hear no explanation. It always takes two to dance that particular Tango and like any other dance request, they can say NO.
Therefore on a scale of sleaze, to me this has men scoring 1 but women scoring 10 or 12 - the gold medal.
Over to you ladies. Rational explanations now gratefully accepted.
