… love as well. My “love” for women has not always been sincere, and it’s almost never been healthy. I grew up thinking that women were made for three roles, sexual objects, cooks/house servants, and emotional punching bags. I didn’t think about the women in my life as people, I didn’t think about what they wanted, who they were or how things made them feel. But I did fuck them, I expected them to serve me hand and foot, and I used them to purge all of my trauma. Women are raised to love us in spite of ourselves, and us? We grow up to destroy them for it. So yeah, we hate women. Maybe it’s time to admit it.
The honesty here is refreshing and a gut-punch at the same time. You’re not telling us anything new, what’s new is that a man is saying it. But, can you even imagine (just for a minute) if a woman had posted this?
Can you imagine the backlash if a woman had said her man just wants sex, someone to clean after him and someone to vent at? Oh my freaking Gawd, there would have been men crawling out of the woodwork spewing profanity.
And thus, the problem is twofold. It’s not just how (too many) men perceive women, but that if a woman points it out, it’s instant anger and denial.
Thank you for your honesty in writing this. I gave it all the claps I had to give.
