Men are constantly trying to prove that they are men, especially by doing "manly" things like watching football, eating a lot, hunting, building things, and,most importantly, being the head of the household. Men have this constant need to be dominant because if they aren't, they feel as if they are nothing. "Daddy brings home the bacon" is what my father used to say. This was true in every sense in our household and, no doubt, I admire my father greatly for his hard work. Being a farmer is not an easy task. I would definitely consider him my hero. But the question is, what if my father wasn't the one working and my mother was the one bringing home the bacon? I don't think that would fly too well. This is a man's world whether women like to believe it or not. We still have a long way to go before there will be equality amongst the sexes, and even so, I don't think there ever will be. Because men have always had control, it would be out of the ordinary for them to not have control. With women, if we don't have control then nobody thinks twice because we don't normally have control. For instance, if a town has a basketball team that has always went to state and have always had an undefeated season, the year that a team comes around that does not fall into this norm they are considered failures whether they still had a decent season or not. It is the same with men. Men, throughout time, have always been in control. The second they don't have control they are considered failures by society. Women are just as much control freaks as men, but we are more secretive. Our approach to control is subtle. When our man struts around and acts as if they are control in front of their friends, we usually just smile our secretive smile knowing the truth: women are the ones pulling the strings while the men, well, they're just dancing to our gentle pulls at their strings.
