Whether it be politics, Wall Street, or the War on Terror, it seems to me that the male ego is ruining America. In almost every bad situation we encounter in our country, I can't help but think there is a "little" man with a big ego doing something shifty behind the scenes.
I think it's safe to say that the problems with our economy come directly from a small group of men with huge egos who couldn't get out of greed's way. Politics has turned into a game of "my package is bigger than yours". And the War on Terror has turned into a game of ego instead of protection.
I agree it's turned into a game of ego. But not male dominance. Matter of fact, it's the other way around; America is being emasculated. That's as far as I'll go, 'cause actually that point is the focus of a hub I've had in mind for a while....
I would agree that many men are obsessed with the size of their business. But, I have to agree with wilderness. I think far more women are obsessed with their appearances, as evidenced by the popularity of botox, breast enhancements and lipo.
Sure its a mans world and we're forced to compete in a game where men make the rules so yes we have to work to maintain a youthful attractive look. The difference is men always have something to prove not just physically but psycholgically. The car they drive the clothes they wear how much money they make is all a manifestation of how big their junk is and they do it all to attrack women who for the most part don't give a damn about any of that and just want a decent guy.
I'm sure you're right - men with small junk have to buy fancy cars and throw money around to compensate. And the ones better endowed show the car and money. to prove it.
But then, they can't walk around half exposed poking it in people's faces the way women do. Maybe if we could we would let the car go and give the money to the woman instead - that's all she wants anyway!
I'm reminded of Molly Ivins' observation about sourthern men and especially men from Texas—namely, they have three dominant characteristics: religiosity, machismo and an unrelenting hatred of paying taxes of any kind.
If it's testosterone or or a lack of adequate male endowment, I couldn't say, but the male ego seems a likely culprit for putting America in the ditch we're ALL in—unnecessary wars, weapons and wasted money.
Now that we all have had time to reflect, was the United States war on terrorism valid?Or, did our instant gratification culutre, react to quickly based on emotion and fear?I think American people are easily led by fear...
