Recently Amy Schumer received a Trailblazer of the Year award. In her acceptance speech she stated,
“I’m like 160 pounds right now, and I can catch a dick whenever I want, and that’s the truth”
If this is the situation, then apparently women have come a long way, baby. But have they? They have come to depend very much so on one asset, their body. Doing so works especially well (if you define well in a certain manner) when they are young and beautiful. However, they often fail to develop other useful qualities/abilities such as pleasantness, domestic skills, motherhood skills, non-dysfunctional social skills, humility, practicality, etc, In times past, these were often very much nurtured, because the Patriarchy (and civilization, and survival) demanded it.
Presently, many women are one trick ponies. But where does the blame lay? As in many complex issues, it can be attributed to many things. But a very significant reason is that men think with their little head much more than they should. Unfortunately this bug/feature is built into men. And women leverage it to the hilt. And do so to the detriment of civilization. Ms. Schumer’s comment is nothing really special; but it does exemplify the new world where the Patriarchy (or perhaps the last remnants of the Patriarchy, circa 1960) does not protect men (and women) from this.
