This weeks He Said is something I've touched on before but I am bringing it up again.
The other day I was watching Jerry Maguire. I enjoy many parts of the movie. I enjoy the performances of Cuba, the little kid, & especially Renee Z. I think Renee is a delightful actress & she looks SO GOOD in this movie.
But mostly this movie pisses me off.
What a poor depiction of women. Renee's character is miserable throughout the whole movie unless she has a man. Her whole happiness depends on Tom Cruise.
Then Cruise isn't ready to commit because his career is a mess. But when his career picks up then he decides to commit? Sorry jackass... you love the girl no matter what!
Then I thought about Eat Pray Love with Julia Roberts. I blogged about that one already so I won't go nuts here.... but that's another movie where the woman's life is not right until she finds a man.
Where are you ladies? Why aren't you speaking up against movies like these? They're out in theatres all the time!
Now here's my concern... in Jerry Maguire there are a bunch of women who have their little "We Hate Men" club where they complain to each other about what jerks men are. You ladies help me out here... is this shit real? Are there really clubs like this?
Not to toot my own horn but I work very hard to make sure my wife is happy. My whole adult life the 90% of the guys who are my close friends do the same. Are there really that many guys out there that treat you ladies so bad that you need to form clubs to complain about us?
Sure there are guys who treat women like dirt but I know just as many women who treat men like dirt! Are we really that bad? The only club I know of where women are not allowed was on The Little Rascals!!! Us guys LOVE you girls!! We dedicate our whole lives to having sex with you ladies! What is it about us that make you hate us??
