This Blog Sucks
Looking back at many of the recent posts, it seems I am ranting against women a lot. I fully realize the impression this gives, especially considering the harsh tone I often employ in my writing.
The truth is, I often try to think of topics to write about that attack men, but always come to the conclusion that the problems with men nowadays are cliched and well-known. Most modern men are far from perfect and they embarrass me daily, but male-bashing is so prevalent nowadays that even men automatically agree whenever women rant against men. Try posting a rant about how your ex mistreated you and how all men suck and see what happens...
So I mention the problems with men, but usually within other contexts or while comparing the genders. This light treatment and the fact that women are not used to being attacked this way will make this blog seem one-sided at times.
My harsh comparisons and belligerent tone make people who don't know me think of me as something of a sad, angry misogynist, and I am aware of this. I am also aware that the same thoughts can be wrapped in a nicer bundle of comfortable words that will alienate fewer people. But I've had enough of harmless, politically-correct, fearful articles that try to please people who will merely read and move on, mostly unaffected. I'm not here to make you feel better, I'm here to provoke with ideas and thoughts.
Then again, I suppose I can tone it down somewhat and still deliver my point, and some recent articles attempted that approach.
I am not a misogynist or misanthrope. I am a calm, romantic individual who treats both genders gently in real life, but who also happens to enjoy heated debates and gender issues.
What bothers me is that I don't get comments. Not because I want attention and my ego mourns the fact that I'm not popular, but because I was hoping to be challenged and corrected so I can improve my viewpoints and arguments. Where are you people?
If you don't attack me I'm going to start thinking that I'm right, and we can't have that now can we...
In any case, barring feedback, I may attempt some different kinds of articles in the near future. Too much negativity is bad for everyone, even if it comes from a positive source.
