Where are the FEMINISTS?

 

I love this comment:
“Visibly missing/ Deafeningly silent on this issue:
1. White feminists
2. White feminists who love to complain that black women like Michelle Obama &/or Beyonce are not feminist enough
3. Minority groups who continually ask Black people to speak up for their cause (Immigrant Associations, LGBTQ Associations, non-black Muslim organizations etc)
4. Rachel Dolezal.
5. Non-black celebrities who love black D & enjoy wearing cornrows & ‘acting black’ eg: Kim K, Iggy Azalea
Did I miss anyone?”

It’s one of the 54,436 reasons why modern feminism is a joke and will continue to be.

 

Only Black People Showed Up To The DC Town Hall Meeting To Address The Surging Number Of Missing Black And Latina Girls

Earlier this year, the Women’s March On Washington drew crowds that totaled close to 5 million attendees. Simultaneous marches were held in cities worldwide as women from all walks of life banded together to protest against various women’s issues from equal pay to reproductive rights, which have long been central to political debate.

But where were these women when DC’s town hall meeting to address missing black and latina girls was taking place? Nowhere in sight.

Middlebury Reckons With a Protest Gone Wrong

I’ve read Dinesh D’Sousa, Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele, Steven Pinker, Christina Hoff-Sommers, Ta-Nehisi Coates. I’ve watched William F. Buckley and found his show FASCINATING. I’ve checked out Ayn Rand, Gloria Steinem, Milton Friedman and people like Milo Yiannopoulos.

I take in as much information as I can to have a well informed opinion. There are several other thinkers who I vehemently disagree with, but I’m willing to listen to. I might actually learn something new.

This kind of stuff that currently exists on college campuses is reprehensible. It’s like going to a gym with al kinds of equipment, classes and nutrition info only to use the treadmill for four years straight and eating fast food every day. You’ll never get fit. Your body needs to be challenged as craves variety.

The same applies to your intellectual fitness. Challenge your mind to think. It ain’t illegal yet. These kids are doing themselves a disservice.

My kids are NOT going to any school like this. Not gonna happen. If they do, they will be the ones being a thorn in the side of these kinds of people who choose to be cut off from different ways of thinking.

I’ve already trained them to think critically and see several points of view.

It might be time to read this guy’s stuff. I heard about the Bell Curve years ago but haven’t read it. I may hate it all but at least I will know how to counter his arguments.

College is an expensive joke nowwadays. Go right from high school into the thing you love to do. Save your money!

 

“Professors and students—many of whom emphatically disagree with Charles Murray—are concerned about attacks on his right to speak on their campus.”

Taco Thursday #cookingwithmykids

Focus. Concentration.
Cooking with my kids is one of the many things I love to do when I have them. Preparing dinner together, then enjoying the amazing food we make together.

Yesterday was taco Thursday. My son made the guacamole and my daughter made the chicken to put into the tacos.

Its great to see them become so interested in cooking and enjoying the process.

 

Real Men Provide…What?

This group would probably also speak out against deadbeat dads who don’t pay child support, and never see the irony in that.   “A billboard on Interstate 40 West near Winston-Salem is angering many who say its message is offensive to women. The board reads: “Real men provide. Real women appreciate it.” The owner of a Winston-Salem women’s boutique called Kleur has organized a demonstration against the billboard’s message for Sunday at 11 a.m.

“We are NOT protesting that the sign is capable of existing, or the people who put it up, or the ad agency, or the right to put it up. We are protesting patriarchy and sexism, and that this antiquated way of thinking about women exists at all,” the group’s Facebook page said.

The protest takes place at the billboard’s location on I-40 West, headed into Winston -Salem from Kernersville. It is about 85 miles northeast of Charlotte.”

Maybe it’s YOU?

I just finished an article titled:

“Why Does Dating Men Make Me Feel Like Shit?”

The author says,

“For the first time in years, I find myself feeling ugly. What changed was that I started dating men.”

It’s not the fault of “men.”

Maybe this writer needs more therapy or something.

“Know why men fear having sex with fat chicks? Because when fat chicks turn men on (and they do) a man feels like a pervert for letting himself be attracted to a fat chick.”

Thanks for “womansplaining” how men operate. This sounds like “toxic femininity” to me.

This kind of man bashing really rubs me the wrong way.

I’m going to stop here because the more I pick this apart, the worse I’ll feel about my manliness I guess.

As a happy and proud heterosexual man who loves beautiful, older, smart, sexy and funny women who aren’t afraid to let go sexually and challenge me intellectually, I’m more than happy to say that I love sex.

Men want to have sex all the time because that is just how we are-especially men with high testosterone.

Men are visual beings. We see a woman’s attractiveness first, then we become more attracted by getting the know them. It’s just how men are.

Men are attracted to younger, fit women because we are attracted to women who we want to have sex with. Why? It’s how everyone was and will be created to perpetuate the species. It’s basic biology.

If she hasn’t figured out that the way someone looks matters to men by now, she should countue to live a little and figure it out instead of trying to tell “men” how we should be.

Yeah…she should stick with women and all her problems will be solved..right?

The Daily Grind – #fatherhood #rest #priorities

 

Fourteen years as a father has taught me a lot about life. It has opened my eyes to human nature, the way different people think. It has also helped me see myself in a different light.

I realize that I can push myself to do things that I don’t necessarily want to do.

Ever since I was a young man, I never liked getting up early. I think I’ve always been nocturnal and my circadian rhythm aligns more with night people than early birds. I seem to be wide awake from the hours of 6PM-2AM.

Anyone who has kids knows that staying up until 2AM only works if you have a partner or some other human being who will pick up the slack in the early mornings if you aren’t awake.

When babies are really young, they seem to be awake more than they are asleep. I remember when my aunt gave me one of the best pieces of advice when my daughter was born. She told me to sleep when the baby sleeps. I took in that info and made sure I slept whenever she did. It worked.

You see, being a full time musician, I often have to work late at night. Gigs might start at 10PM and get done at 2AM. Even when I’m playing in a Broadway show, I may start at 8PM and get done at 10:45PM – but I am usually wide awake afterward and can’t seem to wind down until 1AM or 2AM.

I have long accepted the fact that this is who I am and I’m better suited for waking at 9AM or later. It’s just how I operate. Unfortunately, that isn’t how the rest of the world works when kids are young or are in school. They need to get up and get out and be a part of the community that requires the to be present and awake for an 8:30AM start at school.

Due to the reality that I am a single father raising two kids and co-parenting with my ex-wife who lives separately from me, our agreement has me picking up our kids from her place Monday-Friday at 7:15AM to take them to school. This means that I have to get up at 6:30AM to get there on time. NOT FUN.

Sometimes I wonder how I manage to get through the day with such little sleep. Well, I’ve learned how to pace myself and take naps when I need to in order to get as much rest in as I can. Since I have to get them after school and make them dinner as well as help them with their homework and them bring them to their mother by 6PM, I need to have as many synapses firing as possible.

The agreement my ex-wife and I signed in 2008 was relevant to the time and the ages of the kids back then. Our kids are growing and things have definitely changed, but my dedication towards them hasn’t. I’ll endure the sleep deprivation and running around town for as long as it takes. I know that in a few more years both of my kids will be in height school and they will need me less and less on a regular basis. They will be going to school on their own and probably only checking in with me if they need money for something. It’s all good though. I’m making the most of the time I have now and I’m cherishing each moment.

Fighting through the lack of sleep and battling my natural circadian rhythm is tough at times, but my kids are worth the price.
