Jennifer has wise words...

"Where have all the good men gone?"
You really think he’s going to keep buying all those drinks and dinners while you prattle on about the inherent misogyny of society? Or the patriarchy? That’s a great way to score yourself your very own beta male.

Just read it all.

I've been saying this for years. And I spent too many of those years listening to womyn who wanted an alpha male - that is to say, strong, popular, handsome, a leader amongst his peers - willing to become her own little beta.

Not me, sweetheart.

I had a woman (she was no lady, that's certain) snap at me once because I was holding a door for her. Not opening it for her; this was a mall or something and I happened to reach the door first. I simply held it open after I had walked through. She got to the door and snarked, "I can get those myself, you know."

I went through the next door ahead of her too - and pulled it shut behind me. Petty? Of course. Satisfying? In the extreme.

Fortunately, I got lucky and found a lovely lady who was willing to let me hold doors for her, buy her a drink, and listen to my babbling... in return, she holds doors for me, pushes me to be a better man, buys me a drink now and then, and babbles right back.

It's about partnership, folks...

That it is, and good on ya for shutting the door in the feminazi's face!

Jennifer said...

Bingo! And thank you.

Had that happen once too. I just looked at her and said "I'm holding it because I'm a gentleman, not because you're a lady."

Which she wasn't.

That happened to me all the way back in 1971. I held a door open at college when classes were changing and the girl behind me refused to go through. She said "Do you hold that open for everyone?" and I said "Yes. It's a matter of courtesy." She gave me a dirty look and I let go of the door and went on my way.
