BREAKING NEWS: Man Still Doesn't Get That Women Are People, Too.Posted on 2012.10.16 at 15:52
"Just as it is for many women in understanding what men want from them as they share roles as wives, moms and workers, the balance required as a man in this modern age — whether in a president or partner — is equally difficult and confused. One day, men will be comfortable blending Alan Alda and John Wayne into a new archetype integrating strong, kind gentle and protective in a way that has both integrity and modern chivalry.
When we as men get better at constructing that model, we’ll be giving women more of what they want as leaders and as men.""Again, this is just the humble opinion of one man (and I emphasize man) who grew up with four sisters, has a daughter, two ex-wives and three sons who have dated a broad variety of women."
Pssh. This guy isn't even a proper Womanologist, how could I possibly expect him to understand my mysterious lady ways? You want to know what women want in a President? How about fucking asking some women, then? How about considering that most women (like most men) are intelligent and care about issues and policies every bit as much as men do, and DO NOT, in fact, make all their decisions with their ovaries? I may not have four sisters, any daughters OR ex wives, but I AM a woman, and here's MY humble opinion: women are not a monolithic unit that ascribe uniformly to 1950s hetero-normative gender roles, and I find it incredibly insulting and disheartening that the theoretical contribution of HALF the voters in this democracy would be reduced to whether we prefer Alan Alda or John Wayne (wtf kind of examples are they, anyway?!).
My god. I just...flames. Flames on the side of my face. Is ABC trolling us with this nonsense?
