This entry is going to be a one-two, so to speak; one part animosity-ridden release, and as the title suggests, hopefully enough silliness to offset the depressing reality. I want to preface this particular rant of sorts with an apology: There has always been a certain atmosphere that I’ve wanted to maintain (a rather frivolous one, as if the sole category didn’t hint as much) but that has proven to be difficult as of late. I can’t say what the future may hold, but I do hope to avoid straying from the tone that was set when I first migrated to WordPress.
Preface aside, it was a challenge to refrain from tapping the caps lock key and commence mashing my fingers into oblivion.
It should come as no surprise that I don’t have a particularly high opinion of men. That’s not to say that I greet every member of my sex with a frown; however, there are unfortunate behavioral commonalities that I’ve noticed far too often to ignore:
– Narrow-mindedness. Whether it’s idolizing the loud and self-righteous, insisting that an opinion is wrong, foaming at the mouth over the mere mention of equality, or expecting women to lust over a makeshift personality gathered from cesspools of the internet, much is left to be desired.
– Immaturity. In the past, I’ve touched on the topic of hiding behind immaterial checkpoints; I thought I’d elaborate on what I was referencing: An academic degree and/or a job do not grant maturity — they are steps taken to increase the odds of sustaining a comfortable existence, not to be treated as merit badges with the word “Adult” scrawled in marker. Whether society or ego plays the larger role, I can never decide; I am, however, growing tired of witnessing basic communication degrade into pissing contests.
– The inability to grasp the concept of decency. When you happen upon communities predominantly consisting of men, oftentimes, it’s readily apparent that as far as mental capacity is concerned, there is no divider separating them from boys — sadly, I didn’t include that for the sole purpose of being offensive. The gamut will often begin with the promotion of absurd theories on how to “acquire” women, and end with a close-minded circle jerk regarding their war on feminism.
Despite my disappointment, I don’t believe that all men are miserable cretins, nor am I saying that all women are infallible saints; however, based on years of day-to-day casual observations, I find the disparity between men and women regarding overall mental maturity simply depressing.
That concludes my rhetoric. Given the current tone, the following excerpts provide little-to-no support in charming my way into your heart. I would be honored to settle for your…

I’m going to leave this grave open.
