Do we have a whole new segment of whiny males? As a Baby Boomer I don't ever remember the men of the "Greatest Generation" complaining and whining about things. Am I wrong in my observation?
sort by best latest
damn straight why can't more men my age emulate Clint Eastwood or JohnWayne? I admit if I see injustice I'll make my voice heard but whining about things like about the same shit chicas do is insanely dumb
You're lucky then. I've worked in a skilled nursing facility and, while there are some real heroes in the 60+ set, there are also some real complainers
You get both at any age
over 40 and now whining big time
Why does having negative behavior make him"a girl"?
Are women are lazier/more whiney/ more (insert bad thing here)?
Women, like men, can be tough, hardworking, smart or the reverse
Please don't insult women
Pretty acurate and precise, all the chicks which is basically all my coworkers sit about gossiping and taking coffee breaks, and wonder why I think they are lazy.
and most of the women in the medical facilities where I work are constantly on their feet and doing things, while many of the men sit and tell stories and talk philosophy
Maybe you are right. It seems as though many today chime in with, "It's not fair." Whenever I hear that I just want to scream "So what! Life isn't fair, so do something about it." Am I being too hard?
I don't think you are being too hard. We have become a culture that blames everyone else for whatever happens to us. We not only blame others but whine and complain about it instead of doing something.
In America, it is commonly promoted to be a lazy, irresponsible slob (praise be welfare!), while the middle-class working stiffs have to foot the bill. So, lets not forget about the ones who complain that are tired of carrying the weight of others!
@pagesvoice... i don't think you're being hard.
@duffsmom ... i agree its becoming a part of the culture.
@insanemundane... you get a LOT more benefits than other countries provide to their people yet you still complain. that's the problem.
@arksys: You stereotype countries while ignoring the obvious, major problems of humanity; that's your problem.
I'm kinda confused here- I haven't seen men become "feminized" or obsessed w/ fashion.
There were whiney guys and non-whiney ones when I was a little girl(the 60s) and there still are both today
