Default The Secret War on Men

Everywhere you look today, women are charging men with being men. There's nothing wrong with a man telling a woman she has a cute butt or is there? What's wrong with a little innuendo in the workplace? Why is this such a dramatic tragedy?

Some of these charges go back decades and are probably unprovable but none the less they get major attention and often ruin men's reputations and cost them their job.

The secret war on men is growing and I believe it's fed from the feminist movement and the left.

To this I say

"Hey Babe Nice butt! Like to go to dinner and a movie maybe to my place later?"

This shouldn't be the basis for a multi million dollar law suit or criminal charges. if women want an equal playing field here it is.

"Hey Dude! Nice butt! Want to go to dinner and a movie maybe to my place later?"

Maybe it's time for a change in our laws, a change in our attitudes and a reaffirmation of being male.

Just my opinion anyway. What do you think?

Twenty years ago I noted that political correctness will cost millions and get people killed.

Sadly it has come to fruition

Judging by the lack of responses, there aren't many real men left in here who haven't already surrendered.

lol

You can be a real man and treat women with respect. I'm a real man and treat women with respect.

I respect women except for the ones that don't respect men. There seems to be a lot of those lately pushing feminist political agendas.

"Secret?" I think it's pretty out & proud.

And "Hey, babe, nice butt!" to a strange woman is ungentlemanly and crude.

You don't have to be a drooling barbarian to be a real man. Real men treat ladies with respect.

Now, if you already have that kind of familiar relationship, or she says, "Do these jeans make my *** look big?" feel free. "Babe, your *** looks fantastic with or without jeans. Wanna go get dinner?"

So, its not a secret anymore!

BTW, have you noticed that commercials usually make the man (husband) look like a dufuss but never the woman?

That goes without saying. Respect must be given to be received regardless of gender.

Fine street talk but has no place in the work place, IMO.

Entering a store the other day I attempted to hold the door for a woman. She apparently was a militant feminist and informed me she was quite capable of opening the door herself.
I politely told her I'm sorry, I was raised to hold the door for a lady...

But I obviously was mistaken.

Take a look at your watch, and note what time it is. Other than those of us who are retired, most "real men" are currently at work.......

these same girls would run to HR when and old dude would
just pay them a compliment.

I was always reminded of the joke when someone doesn't speak english and the other guy would call him all kinds of bad names and bad insults but as long as he smiled the non english speaking dude would smile and be happy.

I was reading an article in today's "USA Today" section of my local newspaper, about women once again complaining that they're only paid 80% of what a man gets paid, for supposedly similar work. In all honesty, I'm sick of hearing this old, worn out story.





I worked in a "production facility" (factory) operated by a large corporation. We generally worked at least 2 shifts, with a "skeleton" 3rd shift. We always worked 5 days a week, frequently 6, and on rare occasions, even 7. The workforce in my department was probably 60% male.

First off, during the time I was there, many of the women became pregnant, therefore got 14 weeks off, with pay. Men didn't get that.

Many times, women didn't work the off shifts, claiming that it wasn't safe to be driving either to or from work, between 10PM and 1AM. Men weren't afforded that option.

A couple of times, when I was working the "day shift", we had blizzards roll in unexpectedly, in the late morning or very early afternoon. Management allowed the crews to leave early, if desired, to get an early start on the trip home (unpaid, of course). Most of the women BOLTED to the door. The men were left behind, to shut down the equipment in the department. I was one of those men, and one time, one of my co-workers were left behind, shutting things down. We normally left work at 3:30PM. That day, we were there until 7:30PM, the women were long gone.

Several times, I was called in on a Sunday afternoon, when a semi-automated machine had one of it's alarms go off. Think I wanted to drive all the way into work on a bright, sunny, Sunday afternoon? I was told that if I didn't, I might not have a job in the future. Think a woman would be threatened like that??

Things like this go on, all over, with women claiming to be treated unfairly. I just didn't see it....you want the "goodies" that go with a job, you have to earn them....

Let me preface what I'm about to say by saying that I agree with the points you make in your post.

The point that you are missing is who is enabling the bolded parts of your post above?

The answer would be the men running the company.

The secret war on men is no secret. Bonus points for white hetero men.

In 1992, no. In 1996, yes.

Of course, that has nothing to do with how I personally treat women.
