There’s nothing better than …

… a woman who will cook breakfast for you when you ask her to. When all you really need is a bacon and egg sandwich and a little bit of warmth to get you through the day.

Like, no matter how tired you are of the whole go-round, the Super 14 finals, the beer price increases during the Super 14 finals, all the bullshit news coming out of South Africa; no matter what, just a little bit of love and the world will be a better place.

Like, maybe one day Putin will grow the fuck up, the United States will get serious about global warming, uniforms will behave professionally and Hillary Clinton will finally (please God) quit.

Okay, clutching at straws there.

    Am I the only one who is bothered by a man who is thankful for ‘a woman who makes them breakfast?’ What exactly does that mean? I know there is something there between the lines, but I can’t bring myself to actually think exactly what JB is implying. I know he will deny it, but subconsciously, I get the impression JB has something to say. Something a woman like me would not be happy to hear. God, are there still men who have expectations of women in this day and age? Are there really men who expect women to fit into a particular role because of their gender? Am I still expected to be the better cook and cleaner? Is this the reason why I am single? Am I putting ‘decent’ men who know me off with my blatant desire to be who I am, someone bent on not conforming to what is expected of me?

    Gala there is absolutely nothing wrong with being a domestic goddess, I for one, am all for it. That will give me time at home to work on my kama sutra skills. So far I have not found any job fulfilling enough to lie to myself that if some man wanted me barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen, I wouldnt leave it all at the drop of a hat. This would also give me executive powers to hire a well hung good looking pool boy. Women cannot have it all. Something has to suffer. It’s not called a balancing act for nothing, because it’s just that, an act.

  • Joe Black

    3 June, 2008 at 07:07 am

    Anonymous, absolutely no comment. Why you wanna set a brother up like that? Having said that … hmmm.

    Gala, I believe it’s a choice you have to make. Just one question, though. Just how many of those high-flying man-eating non-conformers are actually happy wth themselves?

    No implications there, and there’s no way we can actually know, but it’s a valid question, I think.

  • Galadriel

    3 June, 2008 at 14:03 pm

    See right there is what gets me cringing. “You know what men want? Give it to them. Or don’t.” Do men ever care about what women want? Seems to me the men are wanting and getting while no one cares about what a woman wants unless it involves money and children. And “that a bit of the womanly touch”. What does that even mean. I would like to think a ‘gentle’ touch as opposed to the ‘manly’ touch. However the reality of it is that a woman’s touch is actually what SHE can do for a man (tend to his needs and the nest). But what exactly does this man do for her. What is in it for her really?!

  • dhlaks

    3 June, 2008 at 14:15 pm

    assurance that no matter what other ppl say about her there’s that man who thinks she’s his world.

    Go ahead tell me i’m wrong.

    As to your allegation that we dont care what women want i disagree, if you do not give a woman what she wants then she will not give you what you want.

  • Galadriel

    3 June, 2008 at 14:26 pm

    “assurance that no matter what other ppl say about her there’s that man who thinks she’s his world.” Oh yeah, assurance that someone thinks she’s his world. That’s alright then! Except, I can get that from my father without slaving away for him.

    Hey, all I am asking for is a black us president just this once. BUT one who comes away less of a fuck up than Dubya. We just need him to set the stage for people of colour in the white house. The world just needs a message from America that she ain’t as negatively biased towards non-whites as she appears. And electing a black president is the best evidence to that effect. If he happens to be the black Jesus(or the second depending on who you talk to) then kudos to him.

    hmm been away a few days and talk of what men want and what women need, a black man in the white house. next we’ll be working on a cure for aids and peace in the middle east.

    simple reality – all men want a domestic goddess. then good sex, then conversation, then a good mother to their kids in that order. if you can’t or won’t do it – then don’t bother. here’s one for you – why do brides wear white – because all good kitchen appliances come in white.

    as for Obama I will remove two ribs and suck my cock when he becomes president of them thar mighty united states.

    whitey can’t kill him coz he has the secret service you say, well maybe he’ll be exchanging notes with JFK. truth be told mccain will win. he ticks the boxes with big business.

    so for all you unmarried chicks approaching your best before date and expiry of shelf life, wuts’ the viable option – von smallhousen?

  • Joe Black

    5 June, 2008 at 14:24 pm

    von Smallhausen? Lol. That’s where Galadriel is heading.

    harsh words Monsieur Black…

  • Galadriel

    5 June, 2008 at 14:29 pm

    von smallhousen?

    What I want?

    First and fore most ALTRUISM (with this I don’t really have to say more but…)
    a tie between good sex and conversation
    then a domestic god
    a good father to their kids is dependant on whether or not I wakeup one day and decide I want to raise a Homo sapien.

    Bottom line, you get back what you put in. If not, compromise is possible but needs to be accompanied by something to make up for it to make it tolerable for the relationship to exist. I am happy to have a guy good between the sheets though with bad convo, as long as they understand that it is a long term one night stand that could be terminated at any time. I couldn’t deal with the reverse though.

    Compatibility is always mandatory for every individual in any relationship. But Altruism is the basic feature that I am not willing to overlook. Tit for Tat, that strategy can not fail.

  • Joe Black

    5 June, 2008 at 14:37 pm

    Alias, I’m not for Barack Obama because he’s black. (Technically he’s a goffal, but anyway).

    I’m for him because of who he is, what he’s done, what he says and what he can do.

  • Eleanor

    5 June, 2008 at 15:33 pm

    As we all know about my levels of delusion, I am a rabid Billary supporter. Coz with the Clintons you know exactly what bs you are signing up for, there is no promise of being lily white. Obama has campaigned on a platform of change, a similar one that got the Democrats control of both houses where incidentally they haven’t achieved much leading to some of the worst ratings among the voting public. So that pedestal he has built up for himself could be his undoing when it turns out he has feet of clay, one example of which is his making the politically expedient move of distancing himself from his church which was instrumental in shaping who he is today.

    Buffdaddy as for viable options, well being single wasnt a death sentence last I checked. And if you wait into your mid 30s, all those men who got married in their early 20s are coming out of messy divorces. Hopefully not looking for 20year old flesh. That or a fcuk buddy, which is significantly harder coz mindblowing toe-curling I am going to be screeching my lungs off the rooftop while I claw at the walls kinda sex is hard to find. And that is the only kind worth having a fcuk buddy for.

  • Joe Black

    5 June, 2008 at 16:07 pm

    Oh please. Bill and Hillary are both bat-shit crazy, and I’m glad the voters saw through them. As for the church, yeah that’s politics, but those pastors are also bat-shit crazy and seemed to be doing everything they could to sink his campaign.

    They represented the opposite of what he stands for, so he quit. Isn’t that common fucking sense?

  • Eleanor

    5 June, 2008 at 17:08 pm

  • Galadriel

    5 June, 2008 at 17:33 pm

    Are we to take offence that the man took advantage of the chances that were put in front of him. The guy got lucky is all. No harm in that. Besides, poor guy grew up around the world and probably had a hard time finding where exactly to fit in. Now he all grown up and settled and has a BLACK wife and had a BLACK priest and all. He made a choice, although I kinda don’t think some one with parents from both backgrounds should have to pick a side. I think they should be aloud to embrace both sides proportionally. And back to his earlier life, Jesus, could we loose the stereotypes. Who said that gong to an ivy league college is a white thing. Yeah, they dominate, which is why there is a need to prove that given the chance, it don’t need to be. And we need people like Obama and others showing that we aint all about gun crime and such. Given the chance and allowed the resources, we do shine. We are just the victims of rotten luck (that a black man or woman didn’t invent the wheel) resulting to our being vulnerable to exploitation and oppression. If technology had originated or spread early enough to the Africa (origin of Homo sapiens) and the colour f our skin being so strikingly different , we wouldn’t be in the mess we are in right now. Same goes to the whole disproportion in the respect towards the sexes. Sod’s Law that it had to be a male to first hog the role of hunting. Had it been a woman thought of it first, things would have been tonnes different.

    I’m just sayin! 🙂 And I think it makes a whole lotta sense too.
