Impulse Typing

Been seeing a lot of dust kicked up by this whole gender roles disagreement between Kim Du Toit and Michele Catalano. So I went, read both sides, and came away with my quickie opinion.

It's all bullshit.

Between the ridiculous muzzle that "political correctness" requires and the constantly changing social climate on who should be doing what, it makes no sense to expect someone to "act like a man" or "be a real woman."

Be a real person.
Be responsible.
Be honorable.
Be considerate.
Be at least civil.
Be confident.
But please, be quiet now.

Look in your pants. What you see is what you get, not what defines your behavior.

thus endeth the rant.

1. In my house, we use the terms "politically correct" or "pc" as a substitute for the C word. Means about the same anyway.

2. And I didn't link to either side of the argument because I think this stupid subject has gotten enough play already and don't want to grandiate it any further.

3. Which I guess I kind of did, didn't I, with this post? Damn my impulsive opinionation.

Wow, and that's short enough to read on a quick break from work.

Well said :)

Reminds me of a male friend who is a nurse. If he was feeling pissed at a stupid patient when they asked if he was a male nurse. He would undo his scrub bottom, pull it out from his belly, and peer into his pants and say, Yep, I guess I am.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

And, basically, the whole "This Is The Way It Is" authoritarian stance by both parties is one reason I stopped reading them and took up Dianetics.

Dianetics? Is that the new diet system based on Princess Diana?
I was going to follow that up with "you know, a crash diet", but that's going too far even for me.

Short, sweet, precise. Simple. Didn't have to look down because I've seen it often enough the last half century to know what is there and isn't. Happy with what I am and don't care to change.
