I am sick and tired of seeing commercials where men (humans with a penis and testicles) are scrubbing floors, doing laundry and changing diapers and women (humans with a uterus and ovaries) are in engineering school, on the other side of the coin.
Now I do housework, laundry, and have changed a diaper or two in my day. I am happy to do housework and consider changing my children’s diapers one of the great privileges of my life. And if women want engineering degrees, fine.
But the fact that some 21st Century Iterations of Mad Men (Persons) are trying to do social engineering to fit their vision of what the country should be like, while selling Swiffers,and proprietary schools in the process, really frosts my butt.
As I posted earlier, I am not a nice guy.

I hope you don’t think I’m nuts, but I look at all the messaging around us, And I get the distinct impression certain preexisting tensions are being deliberately aggravated. That we are being provoked to discord rather than harmony.
Whether this is for commercial or political reasons, I don’t know. But I really don’t think this is just my imagination.
I see the ‘history’ of how certain groups have been treated historically, but when I talk to the people of that era they deny it. They scoff at the idea that they would ever have tolerated the kind of crap people say they were forced to endure.
I feel like we are being divided up into smaller, vulnerable groups. That societies are being dissolved so that nations and governments might enjoy greater control.
My mother was never really thrilled at being a stay at home mom when her four children (born within 6 years
of each other), and she eventually rejoined the work force, but I don’t think she would have traded the time she spent with us for anything. She was our great teacher and Mentor. She taught us the fundamental skills of getting along with people, like sharing. The point is that we don’t need advertisers imparting values to us.
