A belated response to the Dear Woman video first spotted on King Shamus, I suppose. But hey, if I can get a post out — why not. So it’s a long video of creepy white men (just one of them happened to be black) apologizing for all men to all women. Of course, ladies obliged.
The thing is,those creatures can not possibly apologize on behalf of all men because they are themselves not men. Girls becoming women is a matter of biology, but since men don’t go through comparable dramatic physiological transformations, a coming of age ritual had to be invented in every society. That’s why boys go to boot camps, subject themselves to hazing or drive a stinky van from San Francisco to New York and back.
During these rites initiates bond with each other. It’s very important for men to be able to run in packs, and men are much better teammates than we women. When real men show loyalty to their buddies, Dear Woman “men” don’t have a team. It would be very different if they pledged to not treat their female companions like the mullahs, or even came out and said directly, that they, the Gaia-worshiping masochists, are a higher order of male specimens. Instead, they cattily suggest their superiority. We women intuit that they never learned to bond with other men in a rite of passage, and don’t think of them as men. If they are not men, who are they to apologize for men?
Real men are straight forward and not hard to please. Dear Woman “men” come across as creepy and manipulative. As many pointed out, they are angling to get laid, but they won’t. True, but they will settle to use a woman to fill their crippled emotional needs. It’s a good idea to stay away from those types.
