I have met a woman who appears to like the things that I like, has my sense of humor and is probably waiting to get her hot little hands on my next blog entry. So of course my mind starts wondering whether there’s something odd going on here. I asked her, quite directly, whether she had ever been a vampire. Ever the vixen, she replied that I will just have to wait and see. Women say these things a lot. If you ask them, “are you really a man?” they will probably tell you, you will have to wait and see. What are are women not telling us? There’s probably a lot more. How old are they? Do they write? Very slowly, I would guess. Are women peer support specialists? Let’s hope not. Will they bite your neck and give you eternal life? They’ll never tell you. Are women in a situation comedy? Women in a comedy get all the best lines. They say things like, “I’ll have what she’s having.” Who remembers anything that a man said in that movie? Of course not. Well won’t it be just perfect.
The week that I become a change agent for mental health in Milwaukee, I have to go out with a vampire and get all creeped out. Does anyone remember that on Elementary, the Sherlock Holmes adventure, his greatest nemesis Moriartey, is a woman. When women describe themselves as brainy, busty and beautiful, what part of that alliteration do they think men are listening to?Men, we are one half of the world and probably more dependent on our reptillian brains than ever.
