B*tches And Man-Haters

As I was reading the lefty-blog, Feministing, I came across an utterly unremarkable post called “Notes from a b*tch…pondering what it all means….”

There was nothing of interest in the post, but it did prompt me to ask: What the hell is up with certain women referring to themselves as “b*tches?”

Really? I know that may sound cute: “Ooooh, I’m difficult! I’m a real b*tch! Look out!” But honestly, if you’re a b*tch, that’s something you need to work on, not brag about.

I’ll have people on MySpace and Facebook who have “b*tch” in their name want to add me and I decline. I mean seriously: Why do I want to risk wasting my valuable time talking to someone who admits up front that: she’s a b*tch?

“Oh, you just don’t like strong women, John!”

Totally incorrect. I LOVE strong women. Some of my favorite women are women who intimidate a lot of other guys because they’re so up front, pushy, and aggressive. I understand how to deal with women like that and I think that personality type is extremely appealing. But on the other hand, I don’t like getting b*tched at. Truly strong women know how to handle themselves and don’t feel a need to act like b*tches.

Along similar lines, I don’t like hearing women (or for that matter, men) who whine incessantly about the opposite sex. When I hear…

Woman: “I’m sick and tired of men! They’re like little children and they only want one thing.”

or this…

Man: “I’m so sick and tired of these women! They just want you to buy them dinner, spend money on them, and they don’t know how to treat a man.”

…my thought is ALWAYS “the problem is YOU, not the whole other gender.”

There are lots of good men and good women out there. If you’re not finding them, either you’re not looking or they don’t want to be around YOU. Maybe if you stopped feeling sorry for yourself and telling jokes like…

“Why are husbands like lawn mowers?
They’re hard to get started, emit foul odors, and don’t work half the time.”


“What is the difference between a battery and a woman?
A battery has a positive side.”

…someone from the opposite sex whom you might want to hang around would be happy to spend time in your presence.

Sorry to get off track, folks, but that’s a little pet peeve that I wanted to get off my chest.
