Neko- I'm sure we could get some pills for that. Either to simulate or suppress those feelings.
Don't get me wrong, I really think that the vast majority of people out there, male and female, truly need someone to move through life with. All I'm pointing out is that guys should be a whole shitload more considerate than what's fast becoming the normal trend.
Men are visual creatures. That's why Playboy and videogames and action movies appeal to them more than they do to women. Women are social and cerebral creatures.
Women appeal to men cause they look good.
Men appeal to women cause they're smart? Not by the way things are going these days.
Men start wars.
Men beat women.
You can't honestly say the same things about women. At least not to any measurable degree.
What would have happened if women had been in charge of the world? Look back at all the plagues, wars and general atrocities throughout history and up to the present day. Were any women involved? Do you think a group of women in 1930s Germany would have come up with the idea to eradicate as many Jews as they could? Or would women have enslaved African people and dragged them to America?
Would a woman be so daft to send troops over to Iraq in search of weapons that weren't there?
Maybe. Maybe not. I just think that men are a foolish bunch and that we have to be aware that we've worked ourselves out of the loop.
Sex or "making love", or however you want to describe the male/female compatibility, are trivial things when compared to the damage men have done in the past.
Imagine what the world would be like if it went through a century of 90% female population. The medical advances, the enviromental clean-up, the improved living conditions for all.
There's a reason why nature is refered to as "Mother".
It all just comes down to being good to the woman you love and listening to her. If a guy can do that, then it's a start. If someone were to do research (if it hasn't already been done) on the wives of the most liberal and benevolent leaders and figureheads of the past, I'm sure you'd find that they listened to their wives and were good husbands to them.
At the end of the day, though, I'm good to theGirl because she deserves no less, not because I'm disposable or replaceable. Just because I want to be.
