What I meant was that men and women used to have roles that matched their nature. Men were providers, women caretakers. Women didn’t actually mind the whole having his slippers ready after a long day of work thing, as long as he treated her with respect. Then came the wars and while the men were off fighting, the women were forced to work. And when the men came back, they thought to themselves how wonderful it was that women could now do all the things they did before, AND do the work as well. And they became exceptionally lazy.
At this point, women started realizing how much they were being taken for granted. If they had to do everything men traditionally did, they might as well get all the rights and privileges men had. And so started a long downhill slope.
Eventually they did get it all. At the same time, they didn’t have to sacrifice the privileges they already had. For example, if men and women go to a beach and there’s only one changing room, the women get the changing room by default, leaving the men to figure out what the heck they are supposed to do.
And then came the intimidation phase, where men were told more and more how they could no longer act like a man. They lost purpose and drive and were made to feel useless. Which only made things worse.
And today we find ourselves in an era where a woman only has to imply that a man may be thinking something “inappropriate” about her and society and governments are so afraid of the tiny chance that she may be correct that they whip the man into submission for doing absolutely nothing.
A time where 12 year-olds dress and pretend to be 18 and then act shocked when a 20 year old comes up and talks to them because his dating coach told him he should just talk to as many people as possible even if he doesn’t want to have sex with them, whether they are fat, think, white, black, young or old, just to get over his approach anxiety.
So when I say balance, I mean a point where women stop abusing the power society has given them. It doesn’t have to be early 20th century, but at least accept that men and women are different and that each has a purpose. Allow men to feel useful again and stop telling women that love staying at home taking care of their kids that they are wrong and setting a bad example.
Anyways, let’s get back to the news:
A man in Loxley, Alabama was run over by his own four-wheeler driven by his dog. Or more specifically, he tied his dog to the truck and was engaged in something in front of it. The dog then tried to run off, pushing the throttle, which caused the vehicle to hit the man and run over him. The man was airlifted to a hospital. The dog was uninjured.
So if you should ever tie your dog to your car, make certain you’ve given the pooch driving lessons first. By the way, who called 911, the man or the dog?
A man is suing NBC Universal for false advertising. When he bought a 16.99 USD soda cup at the Island of Adventure in Orlando, that allows him “unlimited” refills all day long, he downed his drink so fast that he came to the unfortunate conclusion that the cup only allows a refill 10 minutes after the previous refill. Meaning he can only fill his 16 oz. cup 6 times per hour.
The next day he reactivated the cup for 8.99 USD and concluded the same.
Obviously 96 oz or 2.7 liters of Coca Cola per hour for 24 hours is not enough for some people.
News that makes you smile in the morning.
