Who's Got the Power?
By Rod Van Mechelen
Who's Got the Power? Feminists claim men have all the power, that women are oppressed by the evil patriarchy, and that the patriarchy is all about evil men. But the truth is that we all have "the power," and with power comes responsibility. As we all have power, we are all responsible.
The Man from N.E.V.E.R. on Patrol!
1995 Bellevue, WA -
2013 Olympia, WA - Almost every man's dilemma is that we like women. We don't want to fight with them. We don't want to dominate them. Yet, while we're struggling to make the dream of equality a reality, most of them are out there enjoying every opportunity to exercise whatever dominance they can over us.
It's like being at the dawn of the Neolithic age all over again. Back before men knew they had anything to do with reproduction. And we know what happened then, when the guys found out their seed counted.
Ladies, get a clue -- be nice to your brothers. Respect them, respect yourself, stop sleazing around with the low life, clean up your own act, stop blaming men for all your problems, or one day, when guys realize that, statistically, we've got more gripes than you do, the resulting revolution in men's attitudes could be, well, Neolithic.
