You often hear women complain that men just don’t act like men anymore. They complain that men won’t open a door for them, or pay for a meal or accept responsibility, or get married.
In defense of the men, it has become politically incorrect for men to act like men. There has been a complete wussification of men. When the equality movement began in the seventies, anyone who disagreed with the feminists were shouted down and called names like chauvinists or bigots. The women that didn’t agree with the extremists were also silenced and afraid to say anything. There isn’t anyone who likes to be called names and humiliated.
Often times it is completely acceptable for women to be bossy or a bi—. While men are supposed to be more sensitive. How is that supposed to work? You want to be bossy and you expect someone to buy you lunch?
Most men liked to and still do give special treatment to ladies, however, women now consider themselves equal, why should anyone open a door for them? If they make the same money as a man, why should men always buy? How is that fair?
Relationships have become partnerships more than relationships., the whole balance has been upset and put in disarray.
When women no longer are expected to act like women, and don’t want to act like women, then how can they expect men to act like men?
I think everyone agrees there should be equal pay for equal work , and over all more equality in society,however, if you want men to act like men , women will need to act like women, and realize that with equality comes sacrifices. You can’t have it both ways.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is in this light I have decided to publish some of my random thoughts based on the views of our ancestors.
