The empowerment of women and the ‘me too’ movement remind me of the biblical story of Adam and Eve.
In the beginning, God created Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden for them to live in. God told Adam and Eve that everything in the garden is theirs to enjoy except for the fruit of one tree which they are forbidden to eat.
One day while Adam was away foraging, Satan appeared before Eve and tempted her to eat the fruit of the forbidden tree. Eve succumbed to Satan’s temptation and ate the forbidden fruit.
When Adam returned from foraging, Eve told him what had happened and tempted Adam to eat the forbidden fruit also. Adam succumbed to the temptation of Eve and ate the forbidden fruit.
Ever since then, the human male has been in the shit.
Here we are in the twenty first century and it’s still ‘all about Eve.’
Multi-billion dollar industries have been built to cater for the vanity of women and their quest for physical perfection and for clothing that accentuates their sexuality. Why do woman go to all that trouble and expense? Because they want to feel good, look good, look sexy and be admired and desired.
When the human male awakes in the morning, his sexual libido awakes with him. Because there is no ‘off switch’ the human male’s libido plagues him throughout his waking hours.
When a man is sexually attracted to a woman, he will try his luck when he has the opportunity to do so. If the woman responds favourably to the man’s advances: bingo, we have lift off. If the woman rejects the man’s advances, it is deemed to be inappropriate behaviour or sexual harassment and if the man makes unsolicited physical contact, it’s groping or sexual assault.
When a woman is sexually attracted to a man, she will try her luck when she has the opportunity to do so. If the man responds favourably to the woman’s advances: bingo, we have lift off. If the man rejects the woman’s advances, then ‘hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.’
This is why the human male will always be in the shit.
What do women really want? do they want equality or do they seek superiority? Is the politically correct permissive society liberating women or is it emasculating men?
