A lonely, old and dirty male figure meets a new, modern, beautiful female figure and wants to hold her hand. She, however, has an important mission and is not interested.

yes he is very cute

yes he is very cute

He doesn’t leave her alone despite her obvious lack of interest, he stalks her, trying to reach her, but doesn’t succeed. When she leaves, he follows, uninvited. Driven by his desire to be with her, no matter what she thinks. Behind him leaving his pet, who it seems is now all alone in the world.

They arrive at a spaceship where the population of earth (or USA, which is more or less the same thing) is leading an easy life while Earth is being cleaned. The population, from what is seen, consists of 90% men. This explains why the captain, as well as all but one of his predecessors, is also a man.

The white male captain does what a man’s gotta do, fighting the machines for The Good Cause.

this however, isn’t

The male figure from the beginning of the movie sabotages (out of ignorance and clumsiness) all the work of his desired female. As they are attacked by evil robots, he helps out, and the captain’s Cause (which is the same as the female figure’s) can be completed.

Now the female figure realizes how the male took care of/stalked her while she was absorbed with her work. Since the male figure also gets badly injured and almost dies, the female figure’s desire (!) is raised, and now she wants to hold hands with him.

The message is clear. As a man you can be as old, dirty, outdated, stupid and ugly as you want. The beautiful female will always come to you if you’re only persistent enough in your stalking, and, better yet, if you can win her pity.

I would like, just for once, to see a movie that doesn’t leave me disturbed and with a sour taste in my mouth.

The problem with feminists

October 20, 2012

If you are into defining men’s and women’s personalities from a biological view-point, women will most likely be regarded as nurturing, caring and devoted to their children while men will be described as strong, result oriented and rational.

Going against her nature?

When it comes to abortion discussions, most of the fighting for free abortion has come from women. Not any women, of course, but feminists. So the problem with feminists is not only that they are trouble makers, they are actually trying to influence other women to go against what some people believe is their nature. They are encouraging women to think of themselves instead of being nurturing and devoted to someone else.

Now, if you’re under the assumption that men and women are controlled by fixed behaviors depending on their combinations of chromosomes, the idea of trying to change those behaviors may be seen as futile, I can see that. What I don’t quite understand, however, is the rage so often directed against these ideas. Surely, if men and women are who they are regardless of culture, the feminists could just be let alone, because their twisted ideas would never work anyways.

Rage is in my belief quite often connected to fear, so in this case, is it the fear that the feminists will destroy the world or is it the fear that perhaps the feminists are right? I think most biologists would claim it to be the former suggestion; they are merely looking out for everybody’s best when they burn down abortion clinics or work against women’s aspirations to be ministers or the idea that women are to vote in general elections, or whatever.

But if it were true that biology and chromosomes ruled our behavior, it would be impossible to go against it, wouldn’t it? I mean, the idea of having a “nature” is that you will act according to it, won’t you? If you can act against your nature, that means you are in charge of who you are and what your actions are. That means you get to decide what is right for you. No matter what combination of chromosomes you were born with.

The Y-factor

September 6, 2012

The posters for the new TV-show X-factor has come up around where I live, and I must say it looks very promising. How do I know? Glad you asked. On the poster are depicted four people whom I assume will be prominent in the show: two White Guys, one Babe and one Black Guy.

Now this indicates that the show will be for Everyone, it won’t be a chick-flic, it won’t be some ethnic thing, because those kind of shows are for minorities only, right? It’s just gonna be plain ole entertainment we can all relate to. Because we can all relate to white guys, right? RIGHT?

And because the babe and the black guy are in the picture right aside (or actually slightly behind) the white guys, all the feminists and anti racists can’t say anything because the Others are represented, aren’t they? Perhaps the white guys compose the biggest group, perhaps on this poster, they are half the population, but hey, that just mirrors reality, right? Or if it doesn’t it mirrors the fact that most people are only interested in white guys anyways, right? After all, they are in majority, right?
