En fundering

november 9, 2013 at 11:13 4 kommentarer

Skall tillbringa dagen med att hjälpa en kvinnlig kollega att flytta in. Medan jag väntar på att flyttlasset skall anlända från grannorten tar jag en kaffe, och läser Petra Östergrens ”F-ordet – Mot en ny feminism”.

Undrar spontant hur många av de radikalfeminister som gärna ifrågasätter mitt människovärde som man, som…

A) skulle ställa upp för en manlig kollega på motsvarande vis? (Och nej, jag vare sig förväntar eller önskar mig sex i utbyte…)

B) någonsin på allvar har läst något som t.ex. Warren Farrell eller Christina Hoff Summers har skrivit?

Bara en fundering…

    Jag kommer osökt att tänka på denna artikel:

    Breaking Beta: Mike makes a breakthrough

      Sorry, skulle kanske ha lyft ut ett citat som illustrerar vad artikeln handlar om:

      Last month, Candy apparently broke up with her boyfriend – again – lost her job – again – and had to move out of her apartment – again. Mike lives over an hour away, within driving distance, but his new job makes it hard for him to go visit his sister often. He thinks it’s a comfortable distance for kin, but apparently not enough to make him Candy-proof. She called him up one Saturday morning, and he’d just read something I’d written over coffee, and he was feeling . . . rebellious.

      The conversation went something like this – the texts are accurate, but I’m paraphrasing and adding my own interpretation of the phone conversation. But from what Mike said, this is how it went down:

      8:00 text from Candy: need ur help today
      8:05 text from Mike: ?
      8:11 text from Candy: need to use ur truck. I need to move out today.

    Bra skrivet! Hoppas du recenserar boken här på bloggen! Den låter spännande.

    Just den boken ligger på mitt skrivbord sedan en tid tillbaka och jag jobbar mig igenom den för att skriva en recension. Vore intressant att jämföra läsningarna senare!

    @Ulf T
    Jag minns det replikskifte du citerade och det ger en fin bild av det som kallas ”entitlement” på engelska.


Som Peter Steele formulerade det: "Don't mistake lack of talent for genious". Den här bloggen lämnar inga kvalitetsgarantier...

Något intressant att säga till mig personligen? Maila mig!
