Don't Cry, Chase. I'll Comment on Yours

Chase’s (I don’t remember his last name) blog entry had two different arguments. The first thing he talked about was how women were better than men with money. The second thing he talked about was how the problem was so large and too intimidating that he didn’t want to bother with it. I disagree with his stance on both issues.

In the beginning of the first paragraph, he mentioned an article pertaining to women that “give you more bang for your buck”. At first, I was incredibly disappointed in Chase. He shouldn’t be reading these types of articles. Later in the paragraph, Chase explained that the article stated that women should be in charge of fixing the world. I was even more disappointed. He really should not be reading this type of thing. Really. While women might be more motherly than men (possibly because men can’t be moms), that does not justify giving them the keys to the world. Everyone knows that the last time women dominated men, we were hunters and gatherers. Do you want to be a hunter/gatherer? Apart from reverting back to caveman-ism, focusing on allowing women to just fix our problems will just cause create problems. We should not focus on putting men and women into their little sections. Think about it. Why were women only supposed to be teachers before the Rosie the Riveter craze? It’s because that was what women did best: torturing little children. It is the same with the women’s role at home. They were supposed to fill the role of the caring mother. While women might be better than men in some activities (doubts), sectioning them off might lead back to the idea of separate spheres, discrimination, and the whole shebang (no pun intended).

The second thing that Chase talked about was how the task of cleaning up the world seemed just too daunting. This thought process is as elementary as it gets. It is like a little kid that made a mess in his room, and there just seems to be too many toys and snack crumbs to clean up. The little idiot then climbs onto his bed and just sits there acting like his room isn’t messy. He keeps staying on his bed, only moving off of it sometimes, to pick off crumbs on the floor when he’s hungry (his mom isn’t home to clean this up for him). Sooner or later, a small army of cockroaches will gather (you decide what the cockroaches stand for), and they will attack the bed. What is the moral of the story? Clean your room, or it’ll bite you in the back. Some unconvinced children might argue that his younger sibling, Natural disasters/dictators/un-Americanism, made the mess. The younger child should clean up the mess. That might be true; however, he made a mess in your room. Also, you really can’t depend on little boy Natural Disaster to clean up his own mess. Please be a responsible older brother and just deal with it.
