Dilbert creator Scott Adams got himself in hot water recently (and also not so recently) for his… oh, let’s say controversial blog entries. This is one of them and here’s why he’s a creep.
The part that interests me is that society is organized in such a way that the natural instincts of men are shameful and criminal while the natural instincts of women are mostly legal and acceptable.
Instincts cannot be criminal. Thoughts, urges, impulses and daydreams cannot be criminal. Acts can be criminal. As for the men/women comparison, I don’t even know what he’s talking about. Women cheat, steal, lie and murder too. Yes, when they aren’t busy paging through wedding magazines and being pregnant, women run in the same circles as men. Almost like real people!
In other words, men are born as round pegs in a society full of square holes.
Men are? I thought we all felt like that. I do. Doesn’t everybody? Not women, huh? Lucky broads!
Whose fault is that? Do you blame the baby who didn’t ask to be born male?
He’s right. All men are essentially spoiled babies who deserve a wide berth and plenty of slack when they throw a tantrum about their unfortunate lot in life. And their whining should be endlessly listened to without you butting in about your day at the cupcake boutique or wherever you and your gossip girls pretend to work all day.
Or do you blame the society that brought him into the world, all round-pegged and turgid, and said, “Here’s your square hole”?
Okay, gross. Now I’m just picturing you fucking a robot or a mailbox, Mr. Adams.
The way society is organized at the moment, we have no choice but to blame men for bad behavior.
Seems fair, actually. Sounds like the accountability and responsibility expected of a just society and basic, textbook morality.
If we allowed men to act like unrestrained horny animals, all hell would break loose.
All I’m saying is that society has evolved to keep males in a state of continuous unfulfilled urges, more commonly known as unhappiness.
Oh brother. What a fucking crybaby. Unfulfilled urges? Welcome to the human race, you piece-of-shit mousepad shifter. “Unhappiness.” Shut up.
…society is organized as a virtual prison for men’s natural desires. I don’t have a solution in mind. It’s a zero sum game. If men get everything they want, women lose, and vice versa.
You won’t be bitching about society’s virtual prison when some masher cops a feel of your wife’s ass at a shindig, or when your 12-year-old stepdaughter starts getting invited to one of those Skittles-blowjob-and-anal-sex parties the news says is the rage with all the teenagers now.
And you know what else, numbnuts? — when men get everything they want, men also lose. Running riot over the earth, getting your rocks off in the categories of food, violence and orgasm, at the expense of half the population’s humanity is not only infantile, it’s unbecoming of any species that’s stopped thinking the sun is swallowed by a sky serpent at night.
And do spare me your fretting about how women will fair in the 1950s Playboy cartoon alternate universe of instant gratification you’re a gnat’s wing away from dimension-jumping — hard-on a-ragin’ — into. In such a mantopia, the women would bide their time, patiently organize and slowly wrest fairness and equality away from brutes like you, exactly the way they’ve been doing for the last hundreds and hundreds of years in this universe.
