Question

Q: If I very much want everyone to acknowledge that we woman can do/be anything men can, but still I acknowledge that we shouldn’t because it’s better for us to be soft and feminine and fragile and loving to our men. Where does that put me?

A: I hate to break it to you, but if you honestly believe that … well … it makes you delusional.

Women can do/be anything men can?  That’s crazy.  If that’s the case, why is every single sport divided into men’s and ladies’ competitions?

If that’s the case, why do fire and police academies have to lower the standards for women?

If that’s the case, why are there so few female CEOs?

Women are simply not as competent as men in many, many fields.

That’s why women are slower in sports competitions.  That’s why fire and police academies have to lower the standards to meet their female hiring quotas.  That’s why there’s so few female CEO’s.  It’s not because of some invisible “patriarchy” that meets in dark rooms and conspires to keep women from becoming successful.  That’s just a lame excuse and it goes against Occam’s Razor (the solution with the least assumptions is probably the correct one).  The truth is that women just simply don’t measure up in many (not all) fields.

If you honestly, in your heart of hearts believe that women can do or be anything that men can, I suggest you take an honest look around the world.  Not with rose-colored feminist glasses on, not with cognitive dissonance bouncing around in your head, but with clear 20/20 vision.

It’s not that women shouldn’t be anything a man can be, it’s that women are simply incapable of doing the things men do or being the things men are.

I know that’s a bitter pill to swallow, but at least it’s the truth.

It’s a Man’s World – Spring!

It’s finally spring, and you know what that means!  Sundresses, spring cleaning, and cherry blossoms are headed your way!

Remember that spring cleaning is not just a ritual you feel you should perform – it’s a inherent need in every girl to prepare the house for her man.  

Whether you’re single or married 50 years, you do it for him even if you haven’t met him yet.

Why?

Because it’s a man’s world, ladies.

Advice for the Easter Holiday

It’s the spring holidays, and whether you’re celebrating Easter or the Passover, it’s important to remember a very simple rule to make your home a more pleasant place for guests:

Your job is to cook and to show hospitality to your guests.  It is not your job to inject opinions on politics, current events, or gossip about friends and family.  The quieter you are, the more you’ll be appreciated as an excellent hostess.

Whether you’ll be serving ham or matzoh this weekend, it’s always best to do so with your mouth closed.

Enjoy your holidays!
