Ok I get men are from Mars

by Maggie Why (writer), Plant Earth, July 28, 2013

The differences between men and women are that different, unless we continue to let them be!

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!

Good read and some good point. And totally spot on, it is a 50/50 thing. I done a guest blog not long ago and a real good debate started on woman who get hit or abused by partners. Someone raised the point "The woman doesn't have to stay" My argument (Through living hell as a kid) Is sometimes the woman stays for the kids. It is wrong, but they do, my Mother did.

And I like how you say "Grow a set to Woman" We live in a World where, here in the UK anyway, if a man comes home, and finds his married wife having an affair and gets proof, through the court system, the woman always get more custody of the kids, prompting this to start in the UK And I think it is a fair argument, why should a cheating wife get custody? But I guess I am wandering from your blog, but at the same time adding to it perhaps? As this discussion can and should and I hope will take the issue to a broader issue in the sense, there is a lot more to your blog that just what you wrote, there are so many other issues we could add to an already great article here..

I am not certain that we men have the capability to understand how Venus works. It's not that we are from different planets we are from different universes where absolutely nothing is the same except for the mind fuck that we seemingly communicate using the same language, which in fact, if we dig deeper to the meaning of the words used, too come from foreign universes. When you say "don't" we hear "don't" though you really mean "do." When you say "go" you mean "stay." No man on earth will ever understand this unless you demasculate him -- something that has happened to far too many men (Im not talking about men that are gay) but men who are masculine and have been demasculated and then women wonder why they are not attracted or happy with their men because they're essentially hanging with more women.
