Men Continue To Become Wussies

Despite a recent poll to the contrary, news has it that men in America and Europe are becoming more, rather than less, metrosexual. This was discussed in this weeks Euro-trash Tuesday/Gay* Thursday. In other words, men are becoming great big pansy, skirt wearing wussies.

And if you needed any more proof, we have this:

Domestic Violence Drops by More Than Half.

UPDATE: I have been told by one who constantly seeks self improvement that this post may have been ill advised. I used that advice to do further reflection on this subject. I have concluded that my previous conclusion, that the drop in domestic violence was due to men become wimpier, may be overly pessimistic. One could look at the data and conclude that the drop in domestic violence is because women and children are simply better behaved, having been well trained by the prior years of domestic violence not to upset the man of the house. If that is the case, then kudos!

Now, I suppose my post has lead some to believe that I support domestic violence. I don't. But, as the late Sam Kinison said, "I UNDERSTAND IT! I mean I know what turns Mr. Hand into Mr. Fist!" And if it can be avoided by proper obedience, all the better.

UPDATED UPDATE: Look people, I'M KIDDING! I always ask, WWTTD? What Would The Tick Do. And the answer is, "Never hit a woman. Unless she is a supervillian!"

Actually counselor, I would argue that a *real man* doesn't need to abuse a woman or child. He is confident enough in his own masculinity to either stand beside her as a partner or protect her in those rare instances when that is warranted.

But he does not use his physical strength to batter her, just as a real woman does not use her relatively greater verbal acuity and emotional adeptness to nag, belittle, and manipulate her man.

If anything, she uses them to support him so he can take on the world and see all the wonderful qualities she sees in him after the rest of this crappy world is done trying to beat him down.

I may not be the best judge of this sort of thing, but I suspect this post is ill-advised.

The counselor and I are cool as always, Pile :)

KJ's a friend - we can always talk, even if I were to get upset, which I wasn't. I took it as a joke and responded in kind, but given the vagueries of communicating online, I'd rather discuss it than risk a friendship.

real man, I feel obligated to point out that you left out the [smack!] and the quotation marks
in your comment.

Cripes. A woman's work is never done.

Oh man... I guess I should have gone all hormonal and sh*t on KJ.

I could have leveraged the guilt alone for months...

I always give one warning first, woman.

You gotta love a woman who nags a man on how to be a better jerk.

Sarcasm is lost on the world today.

At 2:23 PM, Blogger Pile On® said... dude, you don't know who you are talking to...or about.

I was merely sharing my vast knowledge of ill advised things.

Heh. I think we need a WWF-style smackdown in the comments section.

KJ, Pile, Me. Throw in a few boxes of chocolate pudding.

What's not to like? Back to work.

No holds barred?

Did I ever share other brother On's thoughts on this with ya'll?

He says he would never beat his wife, but he thinks there out to be a place you can take them to have it done for you.

Ain't it the truth? We women are all about the giving. When I think of the sacrifices we make to help you big lummoxes reach your full potential...

It just never stops with us.

Get thee from me, Satan.

Argh. Back to the salt mines. Mein Gott Im Himmel how I hate reports.
