No, I'm not heading for the op. I've just spent an evening in the pub is all. See, everywhere I looked there were "men" and they were on pretty good form. Laughing, pissing it up, having no regard whatsoever for anything but their own enjoyment. They were snogging "other" girls in front of their own girlfriends, having macho playfights across the floor and generally strutting like fcuking peacocks. All well & good - done it myself a few times as I'm sure most M users on here have. Trouble is, as I looked around, it was pretty obvious that there was sod all substance behind the strutting. See, Peacocks strut to show that they're the "best" mate for the hen, dogs fight to prove that they can protect the bitch. Everywhere I looked, these boys were doing it with no concept of what should be behind it. And some of them were older than me. What the fcuk has happened to the concept that MEN protect what is important to them? That they do NOT go balls out for their own pleasure at the expense of everything else? That they stand immoveable for what they believe in and would lay down their fucking lives to keep it safe? Cos there sure as hell wasn't any of that visible tonight, or any other night come to that. Maybe it's a product of the emancipation of women, maybe it's a watering down of the gene pool. I don't know. But I do know that everywhere I look there are "men" who make me ashamed to be "male" because there's fuck all seriousness behind the bullshit. Discuss or slaughter me. I really don't give a fcuk any more.
