In good humour...

Thank you Blogadda, for picking this entry! I am thrilled....



I wrote this for a client...but it was not published...so I thought I'll put it up here...


What women hate!

A few ground rules:

1. All these habits apply to all men.
2. There are exceptions to this rule.
3. The views expressed here are purely my opinion. Any similarity to the Indian male species, dead or alive, is purely intentional.

Male Chauvinism

I know that ‘The right attitude is the secret to success’. But looks like you guys heard only the word ‘attitude’ coz that’s all you have! Your ‘selective hearing’ causes delusions of self and life in general, don’t you think? So maybe you should start listening and try to understand the meaning of ‘equality’?

Eye-to-Eye

When we converse with you, why is it that you can never meet the eye? Your roving eyes wander all over, undressing us in your mind. It makes me wonder, are we actually wearing any clothes? We would really appreciate simple eye contact, you know? Stick to the eyes!

Sexist Comments

Comments like “Women gossip so much” or “A woman’s job is to cook and clean” are not very becoming of you. You have the basic common sense to read and understand instruction manuals for electronic installations or at work; surely cooking should be a piece of cake! After all, a recipe is a set of instructions that can be followed pretty easily. It’s common sense, no? I am NOT cleaning up after you. PERIOD!

Split Personality

Normally you’re tired, and weekends are to laze around and relax. But if its cricket season, or there’s an F1 race, you set the alarm, wake up early, and the entire weekend is planned around the match/race timings. Suddenly, you are extremely energetic, punctual and charged up. How do you do that? Who is the ‘real’ you?

We always see a light at the end of the tunnel. Yeah, and we love you too…

P.S - This is written in jest...no hard feelings please!

Men who behave like those you described in 'Eye to eye' are seriously lacking in communication skills. I think sometimes our society makes men feel they are from another planet and must behave accordingly. Such men are not just unpleasant to be with - they must also be rather lonely.

I feel sexist comments are offensive to men and women both. Most such remarks expect people to fit in certain fixed moulds, and if they happen to not fit it and actually understand "the basic common sense to read and understand instruction manuals" for something that's not their gender, they are made to feel there's something wrong with them. So all men must be macho, love foot ball, hate cooking and be aggressive. And all women must be timid, must love jewellery and gossip. :(
Male chauvinism is seen the most in unhappy, insecure, complex and lonely men :(

indianhomemaker,

:) thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment.

I wholeheartedly agree with all that you have said...I must also add that things are changing with the current generation of men, who are more neutral in their outlook and treat women as peers!

Poppins said...

Pretty Woman said...

Poppy,

:-) The last part is a 'straight from the heart' ;-)

Men are like kids, they never grow up.

Good to see that despite all the flaws, they still love their man.
