Man Bashing

Updated on June 12, 2012

It's all in fun...

Me and my caveman!
Me and my caveman!
Let out of the mancave for a breather!
Let out of the mancave for a breather!
On his toy too though!
On his toy too though!

1. A good portion of the male species lacks an all too important factor in their genetic make-up, and that would be COMPASSION! Why is it so difficult for some men to realize that other human beings have feelings too, they do not corner the market on emotions. Granted women tend to get a little (just a little) bit carried away when it comes to feelings and/or emotions, but…however strong or dull they may be…they exist in everyone.

2. There’s also that whole empathy/sympathy concept…basically falls into the same category as compassion. Why is it that no matter how many different ways you try to explain, to a man, what you are feeling or happen to be going through, you always find yourself looking directly into a blank (sort of like...deer staring into headlights!) look. It’s almost as if he’s hearing a person form a sentence for the first time. I sometimes get the impression that he’s thinking “maybe, just maybe, if I stay really still, she’ll forget I’m here.” In which case he’s usually right! That’s about the time that I’ve given up, grabbed my car keys and hit the road listening to really loud music.

3. How about the whole, let’s go hide in the man cave thing (in our case it’s a garage filled with things that have MOTORS) every time a woman wants to talk. In the majority of relationships, the male is much larger than the female. So, what is it about a woman opening her mouth to speak that scares these large, fierce, creatures so much that they have to literally hide?

4. Oh, and, here’s another one of my favorites…romance! Where does it go? How do you go from romantic, candle lit dinners to (and this literally just happened to me) having a man standing in the doorway, in his briefs, saying “hey, wanna do me?” SERIOUSLY???? Granted my pink nightgown with the black polka dots didn’t come off of the first page of Victoria’s Secret, but come on…would it hurt to maybe throw the word “love” in there somehow or some way? Why not just club me over the head and drag me in the room by the hair? Oh, that’s right; I forgot…that might not be construed as being consensual. In which case I would have to give him some credit for having thought that one through first.

So, just to clarify…because I’m sure I’ve just given everyone the impression that I’m a man hater….NOT THE CASE. This is just Wendi’s way of venting after having had a really bad day in which the male species was the major contributing factor to her misery.

Now, having said all of that, and “WOW” do I feel better now…I’m going to go grab that caveman of mine, if I can lure him out of the garage, and give him a well deserved kiss for “sort of” listening to me vent about how horrible my “male” boss was today!

      For once I have nothing to say. No matter what I say, I'll be wrong. Great hub though.

      Well Wendi - Nice to meet you! Glad to know I'm not the only one in this world who has a great sense of humor regarding the male species. Mine has a really good sense of humor when I'm bashing on him. I thought your Hub was great, and I thought he might enjoy hearing about another man (besides himself) getting picked on...

      Well, I got about half way through it (to the underwear part)and I guess he thought we were going to have sex, so he ran to the bedroom... He must have been confused, typical. Yeah, men go figure...

      Great Hub and funny!

      Thank you Kimberly. He gives me so much material, but I choose to leave him out of my writing as much as possible.

      Thank you Poppa. It took me a while, but I finally realized that was his way of saying "I love you!"

      You're quite the humour writer! Nice work, oh and for your education, a man standing in his briefs asking if you want to do him, is his way of saying "I love you". You see, you just need to know how to translate our language.

      Thanks for reading my hub Cagsil. I was just having a bad "guy" day on that particular day!

      That was really cool. I like your insight into some men. I don't consider myself in the group or any group, that would qualify or meet your criticism. However, I will agree that many are clueless. Great Hub. :)

      I completely sympathize! My hubby is a great guy n all but there are times when he drives me right up the wall! I know 6 year olds with more emotional intelligence and understanding, and these are 6 year old boys! What happens to guys here?

      See Wendi, Mom was right. If your Dad had listened to me he may have been a much happier person. Bravo my girl. Keep on writing, it makes your Mom very happy.
