Sexism or Differentism?

Sexism

 

There is no  such thing as sexism as a negative.  In fact sexism is a positive.  It accentuates the differences between the sexes.  If you don’t believe we are different you lean towards being transgender.

 

A throwback to positive sexism is when I was in grammar school and developed my first crush on a girl.  I did not feel that way towards a boy.  The difference between boys and girls was our strength.  Call it differentism. it was not sexism.

 

Unfair sexism is usually meant for unfair treatment of women.  It rarely mentions the unfair treatment of women towards men—their emotional dominance over men, their taking most of the family income and being treated to almost every meal, their living longer than men and their being more attractive.

 

Women tend to be crybabies.  Yet they won’t admit they have benefited by sexism in that they are treated better than men.

 

When a man rapes or beats or kills a woman it is not sexism.  It is criminality, lack of morals or perhaps psychosis.

 

And in fact sexism might be a woman’s abusing a man by  taking advantage of him or, unusually, being violent towards him.

 

I don’t believe in globalization of the sexes.  We are different continents, different countries, different cities. We should not be the same.  Viva la difference.

 

Let’s celebrate difference.  Homosexuality was an embarrassment a hundred years ago.  Now it is the desire for homogeneous identity.

 

I like men personally but they sicken me sexually.  Tradition is adamant.  Fundamentals apply and sexism is intellectual acumen.
