Reason #1 Men are Evil by a Feminazi
January 1, 2008
Don’t ask me how I wound up at the University of Otago website while searching for a Sesame Street Big Bird picture for another post, but I did, and some of the woodcuts on display are gorgous. The description for this one reads:
This is the second German edition of the original Pour et contre la femme (For and Against Women; 1951), compiled by Georges Pavis (1886-1951), the French illustrator. It contains 366 epigrams, with female nude studies by JBW at the start of each month. Here is Balzac’s epigram for March: on the ease of fighting with men rather than fighting with one’s wife. The first German edition appeared in 1955.
What kind of character trait is required before one can eliminate all educational opportunites for a group, and then turn around and laugh at that group because they have no education?
What kind of character trait is required before one can eliminate all job opportunities for a group, and then turn around and laugh at them because they have no alternative but to use the only thing they do have – their body – as a bargaining tool?
Really, what kind of character trait is required before one can be that much of an asshole? Because whatever kind it is, men sure do have an abundance.
Men called women hysterical, illogical idiots – not just once but for centuries. Amazingly enough, even though women had no formal education and the men did, women could oftentimes best them in an argument. Men, with all of their alleged superiority and formal education, must have been kind of stupid if they couldn’t win an argument against someone who had none. Plus, they even had to bolster their claims with nudy pictures, as if bare breasts proved anything other than men think with their sardine swizzlers.
You know, it’s only common sense that if a woman must depend on her looks to catch and keep her only source of income, that she will invariably become paranoid about her appearance. Yet somehow, men were too freaking stupid to comprehend basic cause-and-effect, and would laugh at women for their insecurities. Nice going, assholes.
But we know the real reason, and it had nothing to do with men being stupid, and everything to do with men being absolute control freaks over those whom they claimed to love.
And we know they are still doing it to this very day, or we would have anyway if I had found the picture of Big Bird. 🙂 I totally crack myself up. My blog hostess skills are becoming quite lax, sorry, I’ll try to straighten up and fly right.
Men are assholes. Here’s my favorite woodcut so far:
Oh, and Happy New Year, btw. 🙂
