Before I even begin to talk about this pet hate of mine, let me show you the memes I am referring to, and yes, I hate the “real woman” ones too!
Now let me tell you why I hate these with a passion:
I stand for all that is true, fair, just, and honest. I believe in each to his or her own and I am extremely open minded. These memes, while appearing to be speak about good qualities in a man, are, simply put, extremely biased and discriminatory, in my opinion.
Let’s break it down. What these memes are really telling us is that everyone who does not fit into someone’s extremely biased and subjective view of what constitutes a real man, is, by inference, FAKE! Yes, FAKE!
Am I now a fake man because I don’t pray? Or does it mean that I am fake because I love more than one woman? I think not!
Could these memes have been created by women?
I honestly think so. I think many memes of this nature are created as a result of a woman’s bad relationship experience with a particular man or men and now feels that she can dictate to the rest of mankind what, in her narrow view, constitutes a real man!
Irrespective of the reasons, I find these memes to be just wrong!
