Different Rules: The Office

Gentlemen:

“You screwed it up.  I can’t believe it.  Look, you had one job.  One job!  And you screwed it up!  This is going to take hours to fix.  Now I have to get Hodgkins to do this and he hates this job.  I’ll let it slide this time, but I’m warning you, man, you blow it like this again and you’re out the door!”

Girls:

“You messed it up?  Aww, honey, don’t worry about it.  You’re just a girl and it was a tough job.  Hodgkins wanted to do it anyway so I’ll let him do it.  You just stand there and look pretty and answer phones, ok?”

All Men Are Real Men

I see a lot of people saying, “real men don’t do this” and “real men don’t do that.

You know what?  Screw you.  You don’t get to define what real men are and are not.  Stop throwing your pathetic insults just because someone doesn’t behave according to your ridiculous standards.

Sometimes men are effeminate.  Sometimes men are extremely masculine.  Sometimes men are nerds.  Sometimes they’re over-achieving Alphas.

But guess what?  They’re all real men, and they don’t need you to define the tenets of masculinity for them.  As long as they’re comfortable with themselves, you can shove your opinions on “real men” where the sun don’t shine.

“Real men” is as much of a myth as “toxic masculinity.”  It’s a complete fabrication by people who have an impossible ideal of how people should behave.  Talk about projecting image issues – people who use the terms “real men” or “toxic masculinity” are usually the same ones who criticize others for creating problems regarding self-image and self-worth.

Men behave the way they want to behave.  Men are their own people.  Men don’t need or want your definitions of what makes them real.

I can’t stress this enough: all men are real men.

And if you can’t accept that, maybe it’s you who’s not being real.

Why Are We So Happy?

Why are we, in the Traditional Gender Role community, so incredibly happy relative to people who believe in equality of the sexes?

Matthew D. Hammond and Chris G. Sibley tried to answer this question in their 2011 study entitled Why are Benevolent Sexists Happier? available for free here.

The study really doesn’t come to a logical conclusion except to say that both men and women find that their lives are more naturally structured when they accept Benevolent Sexism as a way of life (note: I consider myself a Benevolent Sexist).

From the study’s abstract on page 332:

Research indicates that the endorsement of sexist ideology is linked to higher subjective wellbeing for both men and women.

This is a particularly large study (n = 6,100) and, as we all know, the larger the study, the more accurate it is likely to be.

So gentlemen, get your big boy pants on.  Women find you more attractive when you’re just a little bit sexist.

Find you a girl who sets you up to mansplain.

Today, I was talking with my girl and I said, “don’t worry your inferior, pretty little head about it.”

She replied, “what’s ‘inferior’?

Oh, you gem of a girl!

I love to mansplain.  I absolutely adore it.  But I find girls don’t ask the right questions.  They don’t ask me to explain stuff they already know.  But since my girl loves when I mansplain to her, she asks ridiculous questions.

And I love her for it.

Find yourself a girl who sets you up for the simplest mansplains on earth.  She’ll get the thrill of your condescending tone.  You’ll feel like you’re teaching her something and, let’s face it, men love to teach girls.

And girls, if you’re not setting him up for an opportunity to mansplain, it’s you who’s missing out.
