As dudes we are classically trained to be protectors and bread winners. To be the iron rock that foundains the family unit and to protect that unit at any cost; with our lives if neccessary. In this sense men are born to be expendable.Soldiers for the family unit. Above all else we are taught never to strike a woman But what happens when women are abusive towards men?
How do men defend themselves from an oppponent equipped with the law, society, and crazy ass brothers (thats me ya’ll! 😉 ) at their compassionate disposal? When physicality lands you behind bars. When verbality is labeled abuse. When non-confrontation is belittled as passive aggressiveness…It seems maybe all men have left is the witten word as protest. But would their protest be taken seriously?
Especially in a culture such as America’s that targets and bullies men deemed as weak for not submitting to sexist traditions such as treating women as sexual conquests, striking women who entrench their personal space in an aggressive manner, wishing to CNTRL a woman’s life through whatever means, or by being molesteed or abused by women who are seen as the weaker sex?
How do these men realistically defend themselves while retaining their masculinity? Even more tragic, what do you do if you find yourself in this dilema and your skin color is black? Meaning soceity already has a pre-existing fear against you making your case double negative in comparison to the average American male. Who, in the eyes of America, is the traditional American male?
Who/where do men turn to when their pleas are drowned by the ridicule of peers? One pal suggested the law. Has it come to this? An era where male and female wage war with each other in effect finiancing the pockets of the racisit judicial system? Even I, the humble King of Assholes searches for another way.
