Feminism is a respected practice among most women, a sense of empowerment right? A woman's antiphon against the tyranny of the MAN driven world, so is it so wrong for a man to be macho? A chauvinist pig. I mean in essence he is also recognizing his sense of strength and his nature of a brutish yet sensible manhood right? "Sensible you say? but most men are walking fuck machines with IQ in double digits, their dicks are smarter than their supposed heads". True enough to some extent but even then if women have a means of recoil against the idiocy of the MAN, don't men deserve a practice of their own? A practice that isn't laced with negative ideology constituting of a beer drinking nincompoop? Women and men work hard. Agreed? Yet women for some reason seem to accept the sensitizing of their issues and letting them inflate to states of holy grails where any thinking against them labels one a mindless douche. Is that the most prudent way of achieving one's goals? Doesn’t it only lead to more negative lash backs from non-feminists and men? Taking everything into account in a women defense: the high abuse rates from husbands, the infidelity of men more than women, men exceeding very well at committing crimes and what not and all such it is understood women seem to have an evolutionary upper hand in sensibility but even then women jump right back into the wagon of weakness and impression when it comes to social events. If they can lobby for suffrage, hold rallies, stand in the cold and march in the name of womanhood then why expect the man to be courteous on dates? Equal rights also include equal social burdens so then why complain then that men are cheap and take us on crappy dates? Why complain they get no dates when most don't make an effort to initiate the social fire? Why expect them to hold the door for you? Equal rights insinuates "Equal effort" no? I am not rousing against the cause of women by any means, trust me ladies I love you but some hardcore feminists forget that rights and gender related issues are a two way street. Yes I understand men aren't short changed by any means in society, infect women are so don't harp on about that point please. Men deserve their sense of identity too, or just spilt the bill sometimes. Any thoughts??
