I read a lot of blogs and often I see women ranting about men… instead of their “man.” Women and feminists get offended by my broad generalizations regarding women, but it seems they never see the irony when they read their own work. I decided it was worth the time to compile a list of things I see women blame “men” for that I don’t associate with and will not accept guilt from.
1. If your boyfriend or husband cheats on you – I don’t feel sorry for this because I am not your husband or boyfriend and not all men cheat. If your response to this is “well the men I meet keep blah blah blah” maybe you are just an idiot and date the wrong type of men? Try meeting some guys from the chess club, I bet they don’t cheat on women that often.
2. If your husband doesn’t clean the house – A lot of men aren’t very clean. A lot of women aren’t very clean. If you are shackled with someone that is a mess you probably had some very clear signs of this prior to getting married, so guess who is at fault? YOU ARE! Either suck it up, talk to them and deal with it, or get a divorce. At the very least don’t claim “all men don’t clean,” because the guy writing this article is a neat freak. I love cleaning and cooking.
3. “The men at work are such sexist pigs.” – Yes, there are a lot of sexist men in society and there are ALSO a lot of women that are sexist as well. Both groups are numerous and wrong and that is why I expect no one to accept the fault of that which they don’t do. I am not going to sit here and say “sorry” for the things other men do… EVER. If I did that I would be apologizing all damn day and that just sounds like living my life for someone else. Wait… that is EXACTLY what that is. Isn’t it ironic though that women can get away with things that men can’t and not be called sexist. If a woman compliments a guy’s clothes or his physical form in any way they are “just being nice.” But if a man does it what happens? HR is called, the woman gets to file a complaint if she wants, and now that guy walks around the office being labeled as a misogynistic pig… all because he paid the EXACT SAME compliment a woman did. Seems fair right world?
4. If a man rapes you – That man is scum and should be brought to justice. I support bringing that man to justice. I won’t, however, accept that man’s crime as a possible path for myself. There is a lot of talk about victim blaming, but no one seems to talk about the fact that women love to target “all men” in regards to the more atrocious things some men do. I have never raped anyone, I will never rape anyone, and I WILL NOT feel OBLIGATED to apologize for something some shit head did. Just like Elliott Rogers, any man that does these things does them personally. They made a choice and they acted on it themselves. I got called out for this recently and a feminist said “do you know the percentage of rapes done by men as oppose to women?” My response is the same, I don’t care if 99% are done by men, I wasn’t part of that 99% and trying to make me feel guilty for them isn’t doing a damn thing.
5. If a man cat calls you – Men do this and I think it is lame. Often it is the guy that can’t seem to get laid and is baffled as to why. While I think cat calling is obnoxious and rude, I personally don’t “whistle or cat call women” so I don’t feel a need to march in a parade over this. I am still not sold on the argument that “cat calling” leads to further, more aggressive actions as some imply. Not buying it… but if women want to connect cat calling to future serial rapists then there must be a ton of serial rapists in this world. I sure hear a lot of cat calls, but I just assume they like my ass.
There are an endless list of these because there are endless blog posts from women ranting on men in the tags women, relationships, dating, feminism, and feminists. Most of it is “man hate” and they even say “I HATE MEN” in their post. Fair enough, if you want to lump us all together go for it. I have never felt the need to accept the blame for what other men do and I won’t start today.
