ok, alright, i know if you are a woman you're already skeptical. if you're a man, you're waiting with eager anticipation for what i am going to say. so everybody check your attitude at the cyber door and try not to be too biased for your gender--because we all know that some generalizations are true and that a lot of stereotypes come from at least hints of truth.
so at some point in a conversation with my brother-in-law this last weekend, he said this: "now what you have to understand luke is that all women are crazy. some are just less crazy."
now before you go thinking him an insensitive chauvinist--i feel the need to point out that my sister agreed with him, which i found even more surprising. when my niece objected defiantly my sister asked her, "well do you know any who aren't crazy?" to which she could not come up with an example. that didn't mean there might not be one or two out there, she just couldn't bring any to mind.
so. women? are you all crazy? what do all of you say? i might have tried to argue with my brother-in-law if i felt so inclined, but my sister is a pretty smart woman and i figure she has a little closer acquaintance with you all than I do.
is this perception of "craziness" just a lack of acceptance by society to allow a woman's behavior to be acceptable? is it just a rationale-driven man's world that makes you all look "crazy"? i'm not saying you aren't rational, just that...well, not everything is always the most explainable.
maybe you think we are just as crazy. if not we at least are clueless enough to be the other side of the sometimes seemingly massive wall between our two genders. if i look to the ways that i have been hurt by some of your craziness, then i also would want to know the ways in which it works the other way. is it man's insensitivity? that would be the stereotype. though i feel like sensitivity is a thing easier learned than not-craziness.
have i offended? i expect and await your comments. enlighten my poor ignorant man mind. please.
