… a Western man on a date with a Ukrainian woman in Odessa, Ukraine…
Have you ever really thought about these concepts and what the mean? These phrases have become such an integral part of our society and speech that we hear them daily but we don’t always analyze what they mean. In today’s society of political correctness, what these words mean affects the lives of American (western) men.
I remember when I was a boy and my mother used to always say, “Ladies first,” as I stepped aside to let my sisters pass first. “Ladies first.” I often hear this and it sounds like a good idea. Our Western ideals of chivalry suggest that women are the weaker sex and we should “look out” for them, help them along and let them “go first.” But as I think about it, I begin to see the flaws in this ideal.
Women are afforded equal rights, equal opportunity, and they are being granted college degrees at a higher rate than men. In the next decade, the pay gap between men and women will close to a point where it might not be present at all. For all intents and purposes, women have achieved equal opportunity. And even more so, I have seen many women (and minorities) promoted – not based on merit – but based on anatomy (the presence of a vagina or not) and their skin tone.
I’m not here to argue whether or not affirmative action is a good idea or not. What I am going to address is the third term on my list: equality. I’m all for equal rights and equal opportunity. I believe that women should have access to an education and if they want to work, equal access to a job. But I am not for equality. Equality is a myth. The assumption that once women make equal pay and have ½ of the jobs, ½ of the seats in Congress and lead half of American corporations, that they will achieve “equality” – well, this is bunk. Men and women will never be equal. They can have equal rights and opportunities, but that doesn’t make them the same.
This is a fundamental flaw in feminist thinking – the belief that you can make an apple into an orange, make an orange into an apple or create a society where people can’t tell the difference between red and orange.
Even if we “pretend” that an apple and an orange have the same texture and taste the same, we should go a step further and analyze the dynamic between American men and women. To do this is difficult, especially if you are on the inside looking out. To be able to examine the American man/woman paradigm, we have to get outside of the influence of American society. We could read a book or a study about the women of other countries, but that’s not nearly as fun as partying in Odessa, Ukraine or spending two weeks in Rio.
As I travel around the world (I’m about a dozen countries shy of 100) I see and experience the women of other cultures and I have come to the determined belief that American Women are the worst in the world. They are spoiled, overweight and have a huge sense of entitlement. And this excludes all of the “crazy” women – another chapter on them later.
Now, I am all for “dating” western women – especially when it leads to sex. This is one BIG benefit of feminism – free and open sex. American (western) women are liberated and have birth control pills. If they want to “experience life” and they aren’t demanding a wedding ring, I’m all for helping them out. And I’ve helped a few out this year and had a good time doing it.
While dating women from other western countries, I’ve come to realize that American are at the bottom of the barrel. They really do believe that they are entitled to “ladies first” but at the same time they want equality. It doesn’t make any sense as “equality” cannot exist in a society when one person is “first.”
My last American girlfriend – a Jewish-American princess with a sense of entitlement bigger than Delaware – she expected me to pay the bills, support her AND change the baby’s diapers. She once actually told me, “What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine.” She was from family money and insisted on a prenuptial agreement before we were to be married. I had a look at it and found that all of our assets – accumulated prior to marriage – were ours to keep. All gains on those assets (home appreciation, dividends, stock gains, etc) were also the property of the original holder. In other words, her money and the interest accumulated on it were all to remain hers. But the prenup also said that “wages earned” after marriage were community property. Let me get this straight, I have to share my earnings on work but she doesn’t have to share her earnings on her investments? I argued with her again and again and eventually we broke up. She actually believed that this was “fair.”
My American girlfriends expect me to pay for everything and if I want them to fetch me a beer from the fridge they look at me as if I’m some misogynist caveman. I dated a Swedish woman and when I went to pick up her suit case as we entered a hotel, she wrestled it from my hand with an indignant look on her face, “I’m a Swedish woman, I can carry my own bag!” She paid ½ of the bills and carried her own luggage. Equality.
But do I want equality?
The problem is, no matter how much fun I have with Western Women, sooner or later, feminism raises its ugly head. Ukrainian women don’t think of themselves as “equal” to men. They think of themselves as “different.” They expect different treatment and don’t demand “equality.” They want equal opportunity and rights but they don’t expect “equality.”
Time is on my side. That is one advantage of being a man. I’m in no rush. I can marry a woman ½ my age – well at least in the East, I’d be a “pervert” in the US but in Ukraine its “normal” to marry a woman 15 years your junior.
Men, don’t get married to make “her” happy. Do it to make you happy. Don’t bend to the pressures of society and family. You have all the time in the world and there are (literally) billions of women out there. Go to the gym, save some money and get out and travel. There are women the world over that can make you happy – don’t stick with a femi-nazi who believes that “equality” is synonymous with “fair.” Screw fair, do what is right for you.
