It seems that in the dating game nowadays, men are the new women. There was a time when men had a large set of balls that they used to aggressively pursue the women they wanted.
Now, however, rejection is a game that most men just don’t want to play. Instead of approaching women with a cocky attitude that is certain to get them laid, they waddle over, nervous and confused, or worse yet, shy, and mumble incoherently until the woman interrupts and rejects them with her hand in his face.
Why have men become the new women? Where are the men that take charge and eat machismo for breakfast?
Either way, methinks that women are the ones to blame for our newfound ball-less society.
The other day, I went to meet my girlfriend at her work to go for a late lunch – she’s a teacher in an elementary school. That’s where I noticed what has been happening.
Little girls are taught to be confident and strong while little boys are taught to put up and shut up. Perhaps because men have been at the forefront of everything for ages, women unknowingly treat men (and boys) like crap now.
And what do these boys and men do? They cower in a corner and wait for the rain to pass.
In what ways have men changed? How have men become the new women?
Ways men are the new women #1
Men are more sensitive
In a world where you have to be hard and play hard to survive, guys tend to be talking feelings and emotions like never before. And yes, even anger is an emotion.
I remember a past boyfriend who told me that I had “hurt his feelings” when I joked that he was a wuss for liking a specific slow song.
It’s women’s fault because: We are constantly telling men it’s okay to feel.
Ways men are the new women #2
Men aren’t as sexually aggressive
There was a time when I dated men who took the bull by the horns and would bang me well into next Tuesday, but nowadays men say stupid things like, “Sex is not that important.” Wha??!?!?
It’s women’s fault because: We have been calling men perverts for looking at our breasts when we wear low-cut shirts and for having the testosterone-driven drive God gave them.
Ways men are the new women #3
Men want to talk
What happened to the guys who rolled their eyes every time a woman said she wanted “to talk”? Nowadays men are the one who initiate the “let’s talk about where this is going” discussion.
It’s women’s fault because: We have been bitching and complaining that men never talk since we developed speech and now men are actually listening. And talking.
Ways men are the new women #4
Now don’t get me wrong here; if a man’s mom passes away, let the flood gates open and cry your heart out – I’m there for you. But when a man cries because “*sniff* I just love you so much *sniff* I can’t lose you,” he loses me.
It’s women’s fault because: Women have hardened their hearts and become the pants-wearing, beer guzzling heartless ones. So it’s only fitting that someone has to be the sub in all this.
