Usually when the term "wimp" is implied it is directed at men who don't live up to traditional roles such as being her unpaid bodyguard or handyman and if a man balks at this or fails in living up to these expectations he is labelled a "wimp". What if a woman doens't live up to past expectations demanded of women or she shrugs them off and she is labelled "independent" and "liberated" while he is labelled a "wimp" or "gay". It seems that women can ignore their roles while demanding men remain in theirs. In this column I'm going to be addressing female wimps-those are the women who have abandoned their traditional roles or are not good in them. I'm tired of men being labelled as "wimps" if they are not that good mechanically and it is usually said by women who can't even boil water right. I'm tired of the term "real man" being used by less than real women. If they are going to jump our cases then let's jump theirs. The next time she attacks you and says you're no Bob Villa then you jump her case and say she is no Racheal Ray. It seems today's women is a "wimp" by those standards. In fact one billboard showed a woman in lingerie with the caption across her "I can't cook". What if that were a man that said "I can't protect you" or "I can't fix things"? It wouldn't be tolerated or it would be protrayed negatively. If a woman demands traditional things from men (and let's face it they do) but they will balk at any behavior that you display that may be deemed "liberated". I guess "liberation" is for girls only,right? Bullshit. I'm going to have a "liberated" attitude as well,just like them and like them I'm going to do what I want and if women don't like they can take a fucking flying leap. Same goes if society can't handle it either. Fuck them.
