Men behave badly ... and women do not say a thing

I am surprised to know that men are ... men, the same flashy way here in South America than in Nigeria! It must be because our flags are so alike jajajaja....

Seriously now, this is a matter not only of education, but also of Social Constructions. These cunning abstract little things called 'social constructions', are the common ground that leads societies to accept different types of behavior as 'acceptable' or 'rejectable'. In my country we have the master lord of social constructions' creation, our President, Evo Morales. You may have heard of him. He happens to be a bit famous around the world. As it turns out, he has had the talent to change my country's social construction on the amount of violence taken as acceptable. Twenty five years ago, when he started his work, people were peaceful, and they did not scream or throw rocks at each other or hit each other in the streets just because they did not agree on something. Not anymore. The social construction on violence has changed and people now fight with each other in ways that seem astonishing and cruel, sometimes to death, with the police standing still, in a way that never happened before. I take it as an example because it took him twenty five years to change it, but he did it! all by himself! All that he had going for him to accomplish such a big task was his smile, and a very good copy of how a preacher from the Pentecostal Church lead his audiences to listen to the word of God.

Perhaps if us women, or one of us for the sake of the example, took 25 years of our lives to change this terrible social construction that makes men behave like jerks every time they see a beautiful woman by calling her inappropriate words or touching her in rude ways and laughing about it, perhaps, just perhaps, one territory at a time, this would change.

I say this because in my country, Bolivia, men happen to be very, very obnoxious and cheap when approaching girls in the streets. Yet mothers do not tell them they should not behave like that. Mothers also hush and make their daughters feel guilty enough not to tell when they have been treated roughly in the streets. And men keep being... men (as a synonime of being rude and untactful).

Greetings, and welcome to the Pulse Wire family of GLOBAL CHANGE MAKERS.

Let me also inform you, that not only are Men...ALLOWED BY SOME WOMEN ....to behave like HALF-HUMAN, HALF-CHILDISH beings in Nigeria and your South American homeland of Boliva, but also here in the Caribbean where I live.

I will continue to assert that SOME WOMEN ALLOW MEN TO BEHAVE LIKE ANIMALS, simply because - as you yourself have noted, SOME WOMEN REFUSE TO SAY TO MEN CLEARLY, LOUDLY AND WITH HONEST FEELINGS OF DISGUST, that they consider MEN’S SILLY, FREAKISH, CAVE-MAN BEHVIOUR to be STUPID, SILLY and FREAKISH, and as such SOMETHING THAT MEN THEMSELVES SHOULD – BY NOW – BE ASHAMED OF; instead of feeling ENCOURAGED TO CONTINUE DISPLAYING TO THE WORLD.

Let us take - for example: "MALE-BALDNESS!" ...or "MALE-SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION!" being NORMAL, HUMAN FAILINGS BUT THINGS OF WHICH SILLY, CHILDISH MEN FEEL UNIVERSALLY "ASHAMED:" Women should realise, that in the SAME WAY Men can be MADE TO REACT LIKE NORMAL, EMOTIONAL, FEELING, SENTIENT HUMAN BEINGS WHEN LAUGHED-AT FOR BEING "BALD," or PUBLICALLY IDENTIFIED AS BEING "SEXUALLY-IMPOTENT," so must WOMEN USE THESE SAME MALE-CONCEDED WEAKNESSES AGAINST MEN.

It is NOT BEING CRUEL. It is merely DEPLOYING AVAILABLE WEAPONS, WHEN THESE WEAPONS ARE LEFT EXPOSED - SILLY AS THEY ARE - BY THE ENEMY FOR WOMEN'S USE.

WHY? Women SHOULD REALISE, that it is in EXACTLY THE SAME MANNER that MEN DO NOT ALLOW TO EVEN ENTER THEIR OWN BRAINS, ANY IOTA OF FEELING for Women, OR SYMPATHY towards Women, OR HUMAN DISPLAY OF SELF-CONTROLLED CONSCIENCE in ceasing their own RELENTLESS PURSUIT OF DE-HUMANISING WOMEN WITH THEIR CRUDE REMARKS, and CALLOUS AND CARELESS SOCIAL-EXPLOITATION OF WOMEN'S BODIES WITH THEIR ANIMAL-LIKE GROPING AND GRABBING, OR LEERING "ACCIDENTAL" RUBBING-AGAINST-WOMEN'S BODIES-IN-PASSING....so TOO should WOMEN SURPRESS THEIR OWN LOVING, HUMANE FEELINGS TOWARDS MEN....UNTIL - as you say: "MEN STOP BEHAVING BADLY!!!!!!!!" Why? NO ONE CAN PUT OUT A RAGING FIRE WITH....TEARS.

For, when such MALE BRUTE-BEASTS ACTIONS are HONESTLY MEASURED against the REAL, TRUTHFUL, UN-CHANGING PANORAMA THAT REMAINS MEN'S SADISTIC INSISTENCE IN INSATIABLY SATIFYING THEIR SORDID LUSTS THRU' "FEEDING-OFF" OF WOMEN'S BODIES EVEN IN THE STREETS VIA THEIR CRUDE, VULGAR AND UNWANTED SEXUAL ATTENTIONS,....what therefore is, or EVEN CAN BE - REALLY so "BAD" and "CRUEL" for a MALE-VICTIMISED WOMAN TO DRAW ATTENTION TO A MALE-RECOGNISED VULNERABILILTY LIKE: BALD MAN'S BALDNESS?

What is REALLY so "UNKIND" for a MALE-VICTIMISED WOMAN to SPEAK OF MEN'S SEXUAL-IMPOTENCE DIRECT TO MEN'S SHAMED FACES - THEREBY EFFECTIVELY WOUNDING MEN - JUST LIKE - MEN'S CRUDE AND VULGARD WORDS AND ACTIONS HAVE WOUNDED HER...AND WORSE? FOR, IT IS WOMEN THAT GO SO MUCH FURTHER - AND BEAT, AND RAPE WOMEN? NO!!!! IT IS MEN WHO DO THESE THINGS TO WOMEN!!!

Are WOMEN therefore - REALLY - SUPPOSED to be so 'NICE" and "GOOD" and "KIND" ....that they CEASE EVEN TO PROTECT THEIR OWN SELVES? TO SHOW MEN THAT THEY VALUE THEIR OWN FEMALE DIGNITY, AND AS SUCH WILL NO LONGER STAND FOR SILLY, STUPID, IMMATURE BOY-MEN TO CRUDELY DE-VALUE THEM INI THE COMMON STREETS? IF WOMEN CONTINUE TO FAIL TO SHOW MEN - DIRECTLY AND BOLDLY - HOW THEY REALLY FEEL ABOUT THEM, NO WONDER THAT MEN WILL CONTINUE TO CONSIDER THEM "SOCIALLY-SILENCED-ANGELS," and as such FAIR GAME FOR MEN TO CONTINUE TO EXPLOIT FOR THEIR OWN SICK "FUN ' N GAMES!"

When I say "SOCIALLY-SILENCED-ANGELS," I speak here of the USELESS, FUTILE MANNER in which SOME WOMEN just “smile” even when THEY ARE OFFENDED BY MEN. Perhaps SOME WOMEN act in this TIMID, COWARDLY MANNER because they are AFRAID OF MEN. In other words: they prefer – if you can truly call it a “preference,” TO SUFFER-THROUGH MEN’S “HAPPY” LEERING, CRUDE DISPLAYS OF SEXUAL AROUSAL, than to have TO DEAL WITH MEN’S “ANGRY” SHAMED, REBUFFED BELLIGERENCE when they tell thems what they REALLY FEEL ABOUT MEN WHO BEAHAVE TOWARDS THEM IN SUCH A FREAKISH, SICKENING MANNER...JUST BECAUSE IT MAKES THE MALE BRUTE-BULLY EGO, and the MALE UN-CONTROLLED PENIS feel GOOD! POWERFUL! AROUSED!...but at WHOSE expense?!!!!? WOMEN'S!!!!! At the expense of WOMEN'S PRIDE! Of WOMEN'S DIGNITY! Of WOMEN'S DAUGHTERS' ABILLITY TO LIVE A BETTER, MORE HUMAN LIFE THAN HER MOTHER OR GRANDMOTHER WAS ALLOWED TO BY MEN!!!

Therefore, for WOMEN TO CONTINUE TO LIVE as "SMILING-SILENT-SUFFERERS" even when MEN'S BEHAVIOUR OR WORDS DISGUST, OFFEND AND SICKEN THEM...is almost to LIVE LIKE AN "SOCIALLY-INSTITUTIONALISED PROSTITUTE!" You SMILE...You FLATTER...You TELL THEM HOW GREAT THEY ARE....Women - FALSELY - ALLOW MEN TO FEEL "GOOD," EVEN WHEN WOMEN THEMSELVES ARE SICKENED BY-MEN TO THEIR OWN STOMACHES! And WHY? Just TO MAKE MEN "FEEL" BETTER?!!!!? A MAN THAT CONTINUES TO BE ALLOWED TO FEEL "GOOD" WILL SEE / KNOW / FEEL ABSOLUTELY NO REASON TO CHANGE HIS ANIMAL-BEHAVIOUR BACK INTO HUMAN-BEHAVIOUR ON THE EARTH WHICH WOMEN MUST SHARE WITH MEN!!!! HOW SICK, STUPID AND DOOMING-TO-WOMEN OF FUTHER DE-HUMANISATION BY THESE SAME MEN!

The TRULY SAD THING about this whole situation, however, is that MEN – THEMSELVES – REALISE THAT WOMEN “ACCEPT” THEIR ANIMAL-LIKE BEHAVOUR OUT OF FEAR OF MEN LASHING-OUT AT WOMEN LIKE THE BRUTE-BEASTS THAT THEY....DELIBERATELY....KEEP WOMEN COWARDLY- ENSLAVED BY.

I repeat: MEN - DELIBERATELY - ACT LIKE ANIMALS TO KEEP WOMEN COWARDLY!!!! WHY? SO THAM MEN MAY REMAIN CONFIDENT – IN THE SAME MANNER OF LITTLE-BOYS WHO BULLY OTHER PEOPLE IN SCHOOL, THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE TO CHANGE FOR WOMEN, OR BECAUSE OF ANYTHING THAT THESE FEARFUL, COWARDLY WOMEN WILL FEEL EMPOWERED TO DO TO MAKE THEM CHANGE..

In other words: NOTHING INSIDE OF A MAN’S UNDER-USED BRAIN activates his ATROPHIED MORAL-CONSCIENCE to GUIDE HIM - as a HUMAN BEING - to ACT LIKE A HUMAN BEING towards WOMEN. So that, when this JOINT MALE-WASTELAND of MIND and SOUL further realizes that SOME WOMEN too, DO NOT - or WRONGLY BELIEVE - that THEY CANNOT, FORCE MEN TO BEHAVE LIKE HUMAN-BEINGS OUT OF FEAR OF PHYSICAL REPRISALS….these MEN FEEL TRIUMPHANT! These MEN BEAT THEIR CHESTS LIKE "KING-OF-THE-JUNGLE" WILD BEASTS! These MEN - most importantly: REMAIN SUPREMELY CONFIDENT THAT THEY CAN CONTINUE TO LIVE LIKE BEASTS TOWARDS WOMEN, minus EVER BEING FORCED TO FACE UNPLEASANT REACTIONS - FROM THESE WOMEN-VICTIMS WHEN THEY DECIDE TO BE VICTIMS-OF-MEN NO LONGER, via:

DEPLOYING - as A WEAPON - the SPOKEN, and WRITTEN, and ATTITUDINAL displays of WOMEN’S TRUE FEELINGS of: ANGER towards MEN! WOMEN'S TRUE FEELINGS of DISGUST towards MEN! And WOMEN'S TRUE FEELINGS of SCORN towards the SUB-HUMAN MANNER IN WHICH MEN, FROM TIME IMMORIAL UNTIL NOW, HAVE VIRTUALLY REFUSED TO LIVE LIKE A HUMAN BEING WITH WOMEN UPON THE EARTH WHICH THEY ARE FORCED TO SHARE!

Good coment, World Citizen. Thanks for the tip. From now on, when someone tries to touch my behind, I will insult him by screaming 'Stop, piece of junk, boldie monkey, unuseful penis!!!' That's a new kind of insult that will touch his most inner strings... jajajajaja .... I can't help a hearty laugh when I imagine his face....
