Texas Gender War

This is a letter to the mayor of Austin from a man that was trying to boycott the woman only showing of Wonder Woman. Seems to be an outbreak of gender war in my hometown, which doesn’t surprise me because I believe I am a bi-product of its bipolar extremes in cultural gender roles. Let me break it down through my response to this man’s letter and it’s arguments:

I hope every man will boycott Austin and do what he can to diminish Austin and to cause damage to the city’s image. The theater that pandered to the sexism typical of women will, I hope, regret it’s decision.

a. The notion of a woman hero is a fine example of women’s eagerness to accept the appearance of achievement without actual achievement.

Yes, the first time I felt like this was when I almost won my first championship for LD Debate in high school, I couldn’t believe that I was there and I knew I couldn’t keep up the appearance, I was faking it, someone eventually would figure out that I was an imposter. It’s a feeling I have had ever since, all my achievements are fake.

b. Women learn from an early age to value make-up, that it’s OK to pretend that you are greater than you actually are.

Today I am now back in poverty after earning an MBA, working for one of the largest software companies in the world and eventually expanding my career in Japan to promote internet safety to protect children from issues like porn addiction, a place where a white woman is rarely seen or heard. As I put my drying out mascara on my eyes today, I am trying to figure out what I will compromise to just purchase another Dior show mascara, how many meals can I skip to save, how long can I make it? Will I have enough for my next interview or date, I am screwed otherwise.

c. Women pretend they do not know that only men serve in combat because they are content to have an easier ride.

I am having a hard time finding information about historical woman for my documentary about consent and sex. They just never fought in wars or were in the military so narrative information about how they lived, what governmental transactions they had or where they traveled was never tracked. So their stories disappeared from history. Being invisible is easier.

d. Women gladly accept gold medals at the Olympics for coming in 10th and competing only against the second class of athletes.

I wonder if I did get a medal if it would have helped me keep my job, husband or child, but please refer back to section ‘a’ above.

e. Name something invented by a woman!

Spanx, reuse of another mans invention actually, but helps so many woman land jobs, husbands and make babies.

Achievements by the second rate gender pale in comparison to virtually everything great in human history was accomplished by men, not women. If Austin does not host a men only counter event, I will never visit Austin and will welcome it’s deteriorati on. And I will not forget that Austin is best known for Charles Whitman. Does Austin stand for gender equality or for kissing up to women? Don’t bother to respond. I already know the answer. I do not hate women. I hate their rampant hypocrisy and the hypocrisy of the “women’s movement.” Women do not want gender equality; they want more for women. Don’t bother to respond because I am sure your cowardice will generate nothing worth reading.

I am not a coward and I will respond. I only hope that someone will see my hypocrisy, maybe it will help me keep my home, give me food and provide me safety, or better yet, make me invisible to my debt collectors and the IRS.
