Moms make lousy dads

One of the more fatuous beliefs that have been foisted off by self-proclaimed feminists and other politically correct lamebrains is that children don’t need fathers. I used to say that American woman, thanks to increased salary and well stoked sperm banks, had reached the point where they only need men to open ketchup bottles and get stuff down from high shelves. Ladies I was joking!
I had no idea so many women took the line to heart. Thanks to my good joke and Gloria Steinem’s bad one –that crack about fish needing bicycles- women have become increasingly wacky. What is really surprising, considering that thirty years of propaganda has promoted the natural superiority of females, is how masculine, in the worst sense of the word, women have become.
Surely I’m not the only person who has noticed that these days young women are just a likely to smoke as man, to get bombed on booze and cuss in public, and perhaps even likelier to drive like maniacs and to flip you off for daring to share the road with them.
In the business world, far too many women salivate at the thought of being regarded as cold and ruthless. They are every bit as likely to torment and humiliate their employees, and to promote an atmosphere of fear and anger, especially among their females underlings. Call this women cut-throat and they think you’re trying to sweet talk them.
Perhaps it’s a case of Stockholm syndrome gone amuck. As you probably know, that’s a situation in which hostages come to identify, not with their rescuers, but with their captors. Women in their own defence, might possibly claim that they’d been powerless for so long that it was inevitable that they’d take on the very characteristics they have despise. But that is a load of hooey. I say if you are going to behave like an idiot and a bully, don’t make excuses for your boorishness. God knows men don’t!
In as much more and more women are eager to hand off their offspring to a nanny, a granny, or a nursery school, you have to wonder why most of them bother even giving birth. All they seem to have to show for the experience are stretch marks.
In a society that is determined to accept the nutty notion that two gay men or a pair of lesbian are just as likely – they really mean likelier- to raise a normal, healthy child as a married man and woman, how could anybody dare suggest that a single woman isn’t equally capable? Well she isn’t. This is especially true when the child is a boy. No matter how hard she tries, no matter how much she cares, no matter how many broken nails she’s willing to sacrifice in order to play catch with the kid, the bottom line is she’s a woman. And just because so many of the morons in Hollywood have turned single motherhood in just another fad, sort of collagen lips and plastic bosoms, doesn’t make it a good idea.
It simply make’s sense that a boy needs a man to act as a role model, to show him not only how to curb his temper and to temper his testosterone, but also how to avoid being feminised into something resembling a well dressed eunuch.
The point I’m looking to make I saw perfectly in a segment of a TV magazine show some years ago. It seems that in Africa, on a game preserve, the rangers were discovering the mutilated carcasses of several rhinos. They could no determine who was responsible for the carnage, and they could not imagine the motive.
After conducting an investigation, they found to their amazement that a band of teenage elephants were killing the rhinos for no other reason they felt like it. It was their version of drive by shooting. Like our own urban gangs, the young rogues even had a leader.
The rangers thought long and hard about the problem, the first thing they realised was that the teenagers were free to make up their own evil rules of behaviour because, like the blood thirsty kids in "Lord of the flies", there were no adults in their world. All bull elephants had been slaughtered by poachers for their ivory.
Then, because they did not have to answer to politicians or social workers, the rangers did two essential things. First, having determined he was incorrigible, they killed the leader of the pack. Next, they flew in several bull elephants. In no time at all order was restored. The big guys let it be known that if there was anymore rhino-stomping, there will be hell to pay. Their message was short and sweet, namely the elephants don’t behave that way.
So, for all their professional advances, there are still a few things simply women can’t do as well as men. Some of those things, such as throwing a football forty yards in a perfect spiral or crushing a beer can with their forehead, aren’t all that essential. Important, I’ll grant you but not absolutely essential to society at large.
However, when rearing male children, we’d all probably be better off if the ladies simply dropped the kids off in the woods for the wolves to raise.

  • Hey Nevo,

    Given that you're posting (below) in spanish...

    Where are you from?

    Where are you now? ...and specifically...

    What do you know of the degree to which feminism has infected spanish speaking countries, particularly central and south america?

    If you are knowledgeable on that, what are your thoughts for the future in those regions?

  • I have no idea what's going on in south america apart from that there are several thousands of children abandoned throughout the south continent. Brasil being the worst offender.
    I imagine reach pickings for all sort of perverts over there.
    Not a place I would like for my children to grow up.
    As for their future, all I can say is that if they do not do better to protect their children, their citys will be riddle with crime and violence.
    And yes I read, write and speak spanish and Italian as well.

    Thanks for participating in my blog.
