Ok I get men are from Mars but why aren’t we raising them to know how Venus works?!?!
I was at a conference a couple of weeks ago, and the presenter was talking about work relationships but also references the differences between men and women. I have often thought that these differences, I was raised around men (brothers, uncles, dad, etc) and wondered why when I raised my sons that they didn’t get more of the message I tried to teach them; which was, open your damned ears already!
Men say they hear what women say, but in truth only about 1% of what we talk about ever reach their brains, and am not talking about their neither brain, although if we talked to that more, we probably get more out of them. You (and when I say you I mean MEN) cannot continue to ignore women and think that we won’t resort to something like “bra burning” (although I realise some bra’s cost a weeks’ salary now), but hopefully you aren’t so full of marshmallow BS that some of you won’t get it.
I know that some men are going to read that last paragraph and think am a flaming lesbian or at the very least a closet one and you’d be completely off base. Am just a woman that has spent 50 years in a mans’ world, trying to get my point across and getting absolutely NO WHERE, so I’ve decided that I will try to teach you all on a basic level. Here are my points in fact:
You think we are complex creatures. False, the fact is you try and make us be, sometimes I think so you can justify thinking with your penis rather than the small brain in your head. The fact is if you just hear what we are saying and take at least 50% to heart, we’d feel not only appreciated but actually loved!
You think all we want to do is bitch. False again, we bitch because it’s so hard for us to wrap our heads around the fact that we even spell shite out for you and you STILL don’t get it, come on dude, when she says she feels insecure, what she is really saying is “you’ve been ignoring me and it hurts.” It doesn’t mean that you should go out and prove us right, dumbass!
I could go on bashing men but truly we women have to hold 50% of this BS. If we don’t like the way a man is treating us then DON’T FLIPPING TAKE IT!!! Start growing your own set of bawls and realise this very key, very important part of life; People treat you the way you let them, if you don’t want to put up with BS then DON’T, do what YOU want, what makes YOU happy cuz no one else is gonna do it for you!
