....UPDATED ..........My 2 Cents Worth.......Women......So Sick Of Them...............

.................updates to the post and further information on rant below in BLUE..........


.......WOW - I've never had a response like that before to a post / rant......... you should have seen the variety of emails I got. So here is some further expansion on a fairly significant rant.

NOW - my regulars know that I am not shy to tell it like it is - and I actually don't often go all out like I did below. But here is why I did the intellectual version of vomiting all over Little Bo Peep & Her Sheep.

WOMEN......................... AREN'T.................LIKE..................... THIS..........................

That's why. So let's further explore this by looking at my Rant that will defiantly remain in red.


......................... Women........... We Get It............... You're Powerful....................... Confident ................ Goddesses.......... now SHUT THE FUCK UP ALREADY !!!

.....Seriously - I am tired of pro-women advertising and here is why. The women who produce this content are the very same women who would absolutely shit shrapnel if similar ads were broadcast but from a male point of view. It also portrays a reality of women that NONE of the women I know have experienced.

Oy vey!!!!

I am so sick of women!! From tampon and panty liner ads to SATC to those ads where the husband comes off as a complete buffoon whilst the wife stands there sighing with the utmost condescension.


...........Please explain to me why an ad that discusses a device that gets inserted into the vagina is something that is rated G? If I went on television to discuss Mr Dildo - not only would it never make it to air - if it did the ruckus would be HUGE!!

OH !!! HANG ON !!! - I hear you say. "You ram being Jewish down OUR throats!!" - There is a difference - you CHOOSE to come here and read my blog and I value your patronage and interest in a facet of my life that is extremely important to me. I asked 6 women in my office today if a tampon made them feel empowered - confident - or sexy - like the ads - and all 6 expressed the same disgust at the fact that those ads are on. There were heterosexual women - over 30 years old - white collar. NONE of them thought that these ads should be on.

I do not choose to view Tampon / Panty Liner ads - and I think that they ALONG WITH ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION ads should be banned - it's just not needed on TV. That's why we have doctors. Mothers have "the talk" with their girls. Guys who can't get it up go to their doctor - NONE of these things need to be on TV every hour on the hour.

And another thing .............. MEN ARE NOT THE REASON SO MANY OF YOU ARE FAT!!! THAT IS THE CAUSE OF THE WOMEN WHO OWN THE MAGAZINES YOU BUY YOU DUMB BITCHES !!! YOUR OWN KIND ARE KEEPING YOU DOWN TO MAKE UP FOR THEIR OWN BOUNTEOUS WAISTLINES !!!!!

..........This is a serious one for me. I get so angry when I see women on tv or the news or THE VIEW or such shows who say men are the reason they have eating disorders and yoyo dress sizes. Actually.......... it isn't. I have str8 male friends and not ONE of them likes a skinny bitch. And that is how THEY referred to them. They said "I like a woman who looks like a woman. Boobs and a bum. Curves." In fact - most of these advertisements in print media and TV/FILM are written and produced BY WOMEN. Please explain to me in this day and age how a MAN keeps a woman down - with the exception of radical religion. And then please explain to me why so many women implicitly allow other women to dictate how they should view themselves.

Seriously - If I hear one more blonde / redhead / brunette bimbo say "Well.... If men didn't place such pressure on women....."............ Blah fucking Blah.......... cry me a river.

You want life pressure??? Be a gay man/lesbian/trans in a world that screams at you "You're an abomination!!" - Be a Jew in a world that hates Israel - when being Jewish doesn't necessarily have ANYTHING to do with believing in Israel................ Be a moderate Muslim in a post 9/11 world................Be a young gay teen in a back ass country fuck town where the KKK still has Beer Busts on a Sunday afternoon.

............Gay men are killed every year for simply being gay. Yes, women are killed and raped and subjected to domestic violence - and it is NEVER alright for this to happen. That's why we have criminal codes in the western world that protect women. It has been only recently that we have had sexual orientation being included in criminal codes, and even then it is being
SELECTIVELY implemented.

Yeah women have it SO bad. As I look around my office and see half the management positions filled BY WOMEN............. in a country where my state Premier is A WOMAN .............. where the deputy Prime Minister is A WOMAN...................... and you have it SO bad.

............The reality is, women do not have it so bad anymore. Yes their is still sexism. Yes there are still challenges - but for women to want to continue actively allowing OTHER women to portray them as a minority group that is sub-class is the real crime. It was Mandela who said "You are only a victim if you allow yourself to be". And that is just as true for the GLBT community as it is for women. I use the comparison of gay men simply as a reality check. There is a reality of being a woman and there is a reality of being gay.

Seriously............... and they say us gays are a whingeing lot................. must've been a woman who said it.

OH....................... and the women who are offended by this post?............... get your head out of your vagina and give it some serious thought. You'll be surprised.

................Is this a rude statement to make? - yup - will I apologise for it - NOPE - want to know why? - because a gay man told me to pull my head out of my arse when I complained one day about how hard it was being gay............... it was around the time of the ethnic cleansing in Bosnia. Kinda put things in perspective really.

When I was 12 my mother literally smacked me over the back of the head because I complained that I hated being poor coz other kids in my class had so much more than me. After doing that she pointed at the roof over our heads, the food in the fridge and smacked me over the head again.

Vaginas ........................ they are not an excuse anymore.


.............Gender is no longer an excuse. If you don't like my post - write to the advertising companies, the TV studios, your Congressman/woman. Write to your national leaders, and get them to further demand that gender stop being used by the few as a weapon and a source of self-imposed living martyrdom by others. Stop buying the products from companies that promote an unattainable and unhealthy image of women.

There are real people out their for whom life is GENUINELY a day by day walk along the razor's edge of living and dying.

In countries like America and Australia we are so quick to try to play the pity card and it is NOT appropriate. THAT is why I posted an inappropriate bitch-slap to women. If it is confronting for you - then ask why it is confronting for YOU - not that *I* confronted you with something that others have said before me.

That's my 2 Cents Worth - and I just spent it.

.......So why didn't I just write a simple gentle post like all this blue stuff .................. coz you probably wouldn't have read it with the same level of interest if I did. Some of you would have, but the majority wouldn't have. Why? Because we are simply too lazy. This is why women ARE portrayed often in the media as stick thin bimbo's with balloons for tits. Because not enough women ARE demanding change.

It's called activism for a reason - you have to act. And yes - it is as simple as writing a letter. I've written one to President Obama and one to my Prime Minister.

When did you last write to your leader?

I wish you all well.

Shalom

Damien

Love that!

Kevin said...

*ouch*

methinks someone needs to boost the meds and address this with the doctah.

truthspew said...

You're singing to the choir brother!

Of course most of the issues we have with the sexes today relate to the incessant negative media portrayal of women and gay men.

Michael Rivers said...

Thank you.

EMikeGarcia said...

Wow.

Damien Oz said...

Bob - glad you got it.

Kevin - My meds are fine and my doctah agreed with my post. He thought I could have couched in classier language - but he got it.

truth - thank you - THAT was the point.

MR - Always a pleasure for you mate.

Mikey - you dont say much these days and what you do is somewhat nebulous - have I offended you too handsome?

EMikeGarcia said...

No, Aussie Spice (get it?), you have not offended me! Sometimes I read what you write and want to give you a big hug, though. Sometimes it's because you seem sad, and sometimes it's because you seem angry.

I agree with most of what you say, which is why I keep coming back.

The way you say it sometimes makes you seem like an asshole, which is why my comments are short because I am not one to judge anyone else's vehicle of expression.

I still comment because I believe you care that I'm still reading your blog.

We do what we want! Ready set go!

Damien Oz said...

Mikey - of all the emails and comments I've received from this - yours has given me pause for thought beyond this post.

Watch this space.................

Damien Oz said...

Damien Oz said...
