On April 10, 2010, the Kappa Alpha Psi Scholarship Foundation, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation organized to provide scholarships and other kinds of financial aid to deserving and qualified African-American and Hispanic male students pursuing a college education, completed its second beautillion season with the presentation of seven young men. The members of the foundation volunteered their time by conducting a four-month program designed to educate the young men, affectionately called beaux, on college preparation, etiquette, health awareness, and fiscal responsibility.

    “I see a number of men here who are lucky to get any at all with their auttitdes.”Unfortunately, that attitude on your part is exactly the kind of standard female contextualization of sexual intimacy as a commodity to be bartered in a dominance struggle which has contributed to so many of we men losing so much of our interest in whether we ‘get any’ from you anymore ITFP. And there is a good reason why you need to take this seriously, rather than just writing it off with more negative psychological ad hominems; it’s because the whole “it makes me feel better which makes me more interested in sex” outlook is fundamentally passive and infantile, which traits continue to be a critical issue in women’s progress towards real equality.More and more, men are relying upon the general Male Standard of behavior for their expectations of women, rather than applying the doubled, and much lower, Female Standard. And that, by my analysis, is what you, and those who share your feelings, really don’t like about the comments of some men here — the belief behind them that, for a change, you might have to start exerting yourselves more to meet our standards.Because it’s not just in sports that women get ‘handicaps’ and special treatment simply for being women.I don’t quote Cham’s idiotic response to Dr. Helen’s PJM article at random. It illuminates very clearly one of the biggest problems with women’s auttitdes these days: how they’ve bought into the femelitist myth that because previous generations of women were primarily expected, and constrained — by both men and women alike — to be home-makers, the current generation of women now, somehow, magically! therefore deserves loyalty and service from the men around them without any need for reciprocation on their part.In short, “gender reparations”.And that’s much closer than Peg C.’s comments to what the topic here was actually supposed to be: the one-sided expectation of men alone being responsible for women’s emotional states as a condition for sexual intimacy between them both.Do I see women with Peg C.s attitude addressing that femelitist sexism? No, I do not. I see them attempting to rationalize it, and to treat men like beggars starving for the fruit of their loins.Sorry, Peg C., but no: we’re not “bitter men here with chips on our shoulders”. We’re men exhausted by others’ unreciprocated expectations to the point of depraved indifference, with sufficient self-respect to speak out against that.And you should be grateful we’re still interacting with you at all anyways, because who else out there is telling you that if you really want to succeed and be happy, you need to stop sucking your femelitist thumbs and start picking up the comparative slack in responsibility that you’ve been coasting on since birth?Bitter? Angry? Misogynist? Uh, no. This is simply the kind of raw Man Talk that some women rarely ever hear. Men talk like this to the male newbies when they need it. It’s part of how we teach and transfer the self-awareness that boys need to be able to turn themselves into grown, adult men. It’s no more angry or bitter or hateful of women than either gender’s raising of children to be genuine adults is general is angry, bitter, or hateful towards children.What it doesn’t do is allow you the usual female emotional handicaps and special treatment. And that’s not bitterness or anger or misogyny. That’s real equality — the kind that that can’t be taken away from you, because it’s an internal resource developed through exertion, through accomplishment, and through meeting and overcoming real challenges.Taking advantage of the free ride of choosing to be either women in a gendered environment, or neuters in a non-gendered one, depending upon which situation is more to your personal advantage, is not to your long-term benefit. It retards your growth and maturity, keeping you infantile and passive.Choosing to be strong, independent, actively working non-women when you want something, and weak, dependent, passively irresponsible women when someone else wants something from you does not make you equal.It makes you, if anything, immature, lazy-ass, incompetent freeloaders.

    I thought I’d have to read a book for a discovery like this!

    If you wrote an article about life we’d all reach enlightenment.
