A red sports car slowly rumbles past me as it slides into a parking spot. The driver is an amazingly attractive young girl, and she looks at me with indescribable confidence. As I begin to move toward the car to introduce myself, the passenger door opens, and I stop dead in my tracks, horrified at what I see next. The passenger is a guy who walks around the car and opens her door before she’ll get out.
I find attractive girls who can earn enough money to buy fast, flashy cars for themselves very sexy. Being confident and self-sufficient shows me that there is something actually going on in that pretty little head of hers, which I like. However, there is a line that a lot of girls like this cross that makes me lose my boner and want to send her to the naughty corner for a time-out. If she wants to move past the subservient female gender roles of yesterday, that’s fine, but if she wants to do it while demanding that men still treat her like a princess, she needs a strong dose of reality, Drawk Kwast style. If she wants to be in the driver’s seat, so to speak, then she can open her own door.
The Oxford Dictionary defines sexism as “prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex.” What I find amazing about this definition is the “typically against women” part. So are we living in a society where prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination against men is acceptable? Yes. Tell a woman that she has to stay at home, clean, cook, and raise children, and you’re sexist. Tell a man that he has to open doors for women, and you’re only stating what society deems obvious.
The reality is that women use the word sexism as a tool to add privileges for females, not to promote gender equality. Their goal is that women would be allowed to do whatever they want but men would still be obliged to behave in a specific way because they’re men. This includes things like opening doors for women, putting women and children first into lifeboats, and supporting the law that only men can get drafted into war.
As with most screwy things in our society, if you look back at biology a few thousand years ago, you can see where things got derailed. Ten thousand years ago women needed men to protect them and to do other necessary strenuous physical activities such as hunting and farming. The men were happy to do this because they wanted sex. Today, we live in a much safer world, and jobs don’t require the same physical exertion. Women are just as capable as men in today’s environment of earning a living, and because of this, men have lost their utility. However, because men still want sex, modern women have devised another trade-off for meeting that desire. Women are eager to accept money and/or the superficial material things that money can buy in exchange for sex, either in the short term (when a man gives a prostitute a few hundred dollars in a hotel room) or in the long term (when a man gives his ex-wife half of his bank account in divorce court). It’s the same thing. A few thousand years ago a woman was truly grateful to have a man because her life depended on him. That time has passed. Today, many women have become childish and bitchy as they play a game of “what are you going to give me in hopes of getting into my pants?”
I do take a certain satisfaction in knowing what happens to women like this, however. Because they get so bitchy as they age and because they have built a life where their only value is their looks, they expire and get thrown away like yesterday’s garbage. After all, what type of idiotic man would hang on to an old bitchy woman he doesn’t even want to have sex with anymore?
In response to all this strangeness, some men have just opted out of the game completely. With today’s technology giving men excitement through video games and pornography, the emotional need for real sex is dwindling. Thus the modern-day empowered bitchy whore is finding it more and more difficult to find willing victims. In a last ditch effort to continue receiving privileges and material possessions for no other reason than the fact that they are women, these women are calling men childish and trying to insult them into relationships. This is one of the finest points of the new sexism: Women are empowered to do whatever they want with their lives, but if a man isn’t in a relationship, providing for a woman, he is being childish, selfish, and irresponsible. Society has really set up the rules in a very peculiar manner.
Think of it like this: If a woman walks into a hardware store to buy a hammer, someone in the store will help her and probably think it’s kind of cute that she’s building something. But if a man walks into the lingerie section of a department store and starts trying on bras and G-strings, security gets called. Now some of you may be crying out that I’m comparing apples with oranges here. So to compare apples to apples, I ask you the following question: What if a woman walks into the men’s department and starts trying on boxers (men’s underwear)? She will be greeted by a salesperson ready to help her.
When it comes to the new sexism, you’re starting to understand that we’re either all the same, or we’re not. There’s no halfway on this. You either treat both sexes exactly the same or you don’t. Either women can get drafted for war as men can or they can’t. Either public restrooms are coed, or they aren’t. Remember, either both sexes are treated EXACTLY the same, or they aren’t. And let’s not forget sports because we’re either the same, or we’re not.
But professional women’s basketball players aren’t any more “pro basketball players” than the poor bastards in the Special Olympics are “Olympic athletes.” If you put women players on NBA teams, not being able to dunk, you’d realize very quickly how fucking ridiculous the difference is. If it’s wrong to divide sports up by race (racism), then why isn’t it wrong to divide sports up by sex (sexism)? The answer is that it is wrong.
When I was young and coming up in the martial arts world, I remember the first time I sparred with a girl. Before that moment, I strongly believed that “hitting a girl was wrong.” I quickly changed my opinion on that one when a girl kicked me in the face. As the years went by, I developed a great respect for the women who would go toe to toe with men in the dojo. I learned a few things as I literally began to treat them the same as the men I trained with. We had a saying in the dojo, “Don’t break your toys.” Roughly, this meant, “Don’t hurt the people you train with.” Sure, injuries happen, but in combat you quickly learn who’s more powerful, and the stronger must respect the weaker. If it weren’t that way, class sizes would continually shrink until there was only one student remaining. I was one of the bigger and more powerful guys at the dojo, and most of the girls I sparred with weighed half of what I did. I treated them the exact same way I treated smaller guys, by throttling my power. The goal was for everyone to get a great workout and to keep injuries to a minimum. The point that I really want to emphasize here is that these bad-ass fighting chicks had zero delusions. They knew that the larger upper-division guys like me were throttling our power and that, if we ever let loose, they’d be in a world of hurt, but they also trusted us to never go harder than they could handle. And amusingly enough, these smaller upper-division girls could beat the shit out of the majority of the lower-division guys. There was no “sexism” in the dojo.
I have no delusions that the sexes are “similar.” I also think that the correct response to anyone who tells you that you can’t do something because of your age, race, or gender is “Fuck you.” Additionally, I think this same response works great for anyone telling you that you’re obligated to do something because of your age, race, or gender. I understand biology. Structurally, women and men are different. One tends to be stronger, and the other can give birth. I also know that there are physical differences between the male and female brain and that these differences affect function to a degree that society will never be comfortable accepting in spite of the scientific data.
I like the fact that women and men are different. I like being a man, and I enjoy being with women because of the things that make them women. My hope is that one day society will get past all the bullshit and be able to appreciate the differences between the genders. Or if the zombie apocalypse ever happens, maybe real men will come back into fashion again. Regardless of which happens first, until then I’ll leave you with this:
I live in Las Vegas where it’s common practice for men to pay more than women do to enter a nightclub. I’m okay with this because it means fewer guys and more girls inside the club. My point is simply this: I’ll start taking women seriously on the “equality” thing when the first one refuses the discounted women’s entry fee. Until then, I’ll see it for what it is… Little girls acting silly.
