Domestication pt. 2: response to timi

Timi's going to eventually release this post about domestication soon. But I want to speak on behalf of men everywhere. I will not be silenced. I will not be hushed. You can no longer move us to the back of the closet. We will be heard. We will be listened to. You can no longer ignore us. We are a rising force to be dealt with.

Do you know, for instance, that there are male presidents. Did you know that with some room for feasibility and probability, there could very well be a young boy out there who could run for and maybe even win the presidency of the United States of America? Or at least the prime ministry of Canada. After all, they are fairly progressive up North.

But we are constantly being brought down low. No one listens to us. No one hears our cry. O, how long, o Lord, before you hear us? How much longer will the females rage? We are belittled at every turn, at every corner, in every market. We are looked over and inspected as pieces of meat. We are passed over in promotions. We must constantly dress to impress. And if we want to be noticed, we must debase our bodies and hold out ourselves as if to inspection.

I sometimes wish we could stay home!

Adam, Toronto is FULL of those. J, I'm surprised we didn't walk into any bare chested, 'sagging' ladies. I guess it wasn't hot enough that day. Cuz they RULE downtown.

i'm not sure if you're talking about 60's females (at that approximate age) with kate bush hanging out their armpits, or ghastly men sans the kramer/costanza invention, The Bro.
