Most women want masculine men, most men want feminine women, and the fluff-for-brains feminists will just have to learn to accept that.
It's a guy thing
2003 Olympia, Wash. - Twelve years and 3 days ago, when my department head fired me for sexual harassment, I tried to explain to her how one of the ways guys compliment one another is with insults. As most women of the day might have done, she snorted with disbelief, but a lot can change in 12 years:
It took me a long time to realize how men compliment by insult. You know when they walk by the project you're working on and say, 'What is this junk you're building?' That's really their way of accepting you. I have to adjust to the men's world, but I'm not one of the guys. - Evelyn O'Conner, Take this job and love it: Five secure in what they do, by Mary Lou Sanelli, The Seattle Times, Sunday, October 19, 2003
During the 1960s and 1970s, feminists claimed women were the same as men. At one point their idiotic assertions got so silly that comedian and entertainer Bob Hope panned them in a skit about a man and a woman who find love in a world where "unisex" has become law and love,
By the 1980s, feminists concluded that gaining equality was more nerve-racking than nirvana, and they changed their tune to one of ongoing oppression and demanded that men, the workplace, the world and even the wilderness change to accommodate women. No more Mr. Nice Guy, or Bad Guy, or guy's guy, everything revolved around the feminist reality distortion field, in which existence was remade in gentle hues of feminine pastels and every guy was expected to get in touch with his feminine side.
Only the world doesn't work that way. Women don't work that way. And as predicted by George Gilder in Men and Marriage, a world obsessed with stamping out masculinity was simply obsessed with masculinity, period. The more feminists tried to feminize men, the more women were attracted to the roughest masculine characteristics.
In today's feminist world, when the backlash against feminism is obvious, out in the open and gaining momentum at every level of society, they're finally starting to realize that the world can't be remade in the image of women. Or men, for that matter, because the world isn't made by us.
With our intelligence, science and technology we can modify our environment and we are learning to modify ourselves, but one thing remains constant and will not change for a very long time: Most women want masculine men, most men want feminine women, and the fluff-for-brains feminists will just have to learn to accept that.
