Women

Woman is the companion of man, gifted with equal mental capacity. However, If it's a woman, its caustic; if it's a man, it's authoritative. Some say women are misfits, some say manipulative, dominant, quarrelsome, sentimental, blah blah blah! But woman's grief is like a summer storm, short as it violent is. They say that women talk too much. If you have worked in congress you know that the filibuster was invented by men. Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, "She doesn't have what it takes." They will say, "Women don't have what it takes". If some woman on the road messes up when shes driving, the entire female gender is pointed at. Had women not controlled men from speeding up, rash driving, constantly keeping the speedometer under control... we would have to call it a day long back. If an unknown woman wore a short skirt and a tight sweater and her figure described a set of parabolas that could cause cardiac arrest in a yak. But if your own wife wore it, it would cause a bicker in the house. No matter how good she looks - no matter how sweet she talks - somebody, somewhere is sick and tired of putting up with her shit. The man earns all the money for the house it seems, but a retired husband is often a wife's full-time job. Well, I guess someone rightly said, "women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid." Being a woman is a terribly difficult task, since it consists principally in dealing with men.

Men out there, do you really care about the nice she wants to hear? A mother understands what a child does not say, but did you ever listen to what she wanted to tell you? Your wife waited for you until late night at the dinner table to hear that you already had dinner at your so-called "meeting". You always crib about your girl-friend to some other female-friend. Well if you really didnt like her, why did you fall in love with her ? (if u really did) The three words women most want to hear from a man are, "You lost weight". All a woman asks for is a little of love, only that she be able to feel like a heroine. I hope u agree, “A woman on time is one in nine”.

Be to her virtues very kind,
Be to her faults a little blind.
~ Matthew Prior

Hope this could be like an unsaid rule. Things would be so much better.
I'm sure all the men completely disagree to what I've said so far. They wanna pounce back in their defense. I'm sure you wanna say, 'its natural to oogle at beauty'. 'Its a pain to handle too many emotions & quarrels'. 'A woman wears her tears like jewelry'. 'Women make errors and so we are pin-pointing'. 'I hate women because they always know where things are'. 'Why cant she just stop being so complicated?' 'All women become like their mothers, that is their tragedy'. 'She just keeps ordering, I have no say'. I'm sure you also are uttering the words "Does this b***h also know what shes blabbering". Afterall, I am a woman above everything else.

What I am thinking rt now is what made you write this blog... every gender has their share of troubles growing up ... no one is wiser. I know its easier said than believed. But look at your own life and you will find you didnt have to fight for things we did and vice versa.

Vivek,

I was navigating through various blogs of unknown people, and came across most blogs of men who were complaining about women. Sorry, dont remember their names to include them in "References". It led me into my stream of thoughts, nothing grave! Also, about looking at my life, guess we let go too many things/bear few pains you never had to go through. Hows that?

on whose blog did u find all this 'woman-bashing' that you were instigated so much as to write this post.
Sure do agree, that men will complain but deep within I am sure they also know that they are incomplete w/o tht woman in their life.

as Billy Joel has said

Oh-she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She's ahead of her time
Oh-and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind
She will promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you're bleedin'
But she'll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
Cause she's always a woman to me


----------
complicated... to an extent yes.
blaberring...to an extent yes
like their mother... to an extent, yes again.

but... thats wht make them unique. thats wht differentiate them from men. thats what they need...for their life to be complete.

the speeding thing is a perfect example that you have given.

hvnt been able to put in the thots properly in this comments...but I guess its conveyed. :)

hmm…nice post :p
but, somehow I, although am a girl, tend to kinda disagree with my pal, let the guys alone.

we are categorizing “all men” to be the same, which is not at all true...men are a lot more sensitive then women, but the difference between the two genders is just that men do not disclose…something stops them from opening up, crying out like women…don’t u think there r times when men r full of tears which r just waiting to roll down? U may call it their ego or whatever, but it does happen…

we girls r always “expecting” a compliment from guys…and at times, agar nahi mila compliment, to u will make sure u earn it somehow…and guys take immense pleasure in procrastinating appreciation at times…did we ever think that, guys need compliments too...for that matter, compliments shud be given freely to everyone, be it a man or a woman…it makes anyone feel good abt one's self...

if ur hubby has had dinner at a "meeting" and u r waiting for him at home, do u even give him the benefit of doubt ever…u just tend to jump to the conclusion…”he probably does not care for me anymore, he does not love me any more, etc. etc.”…if it something that repeats, then sure u cud doubt, but otherwise, nope!

each guy has a special way to show that he cares…”most” guys at least make every possible attempt to understand girls, though they may not be completely successful, but they do try…we shud give them at least that credit :)...

driving…point taken…guys sometimes generalize…but again, girls shud be mature enuf to not take such remarks to heart…if its ur mistake once, accept it, but if it is a comment for someone else, its ok..u cannot change the outlook of a guy all of a sudden…it takes time, and it will come from within…probably when they r in love or when they tend to understand women completely (which may never happen!...

girls shud not forget this…
a woman is the one who makes or breaks the house...itna bada darja fukat mein nahi mila hai women ko…guys know it very well…and so don’t feel that y r we women, y do men say this, that etc.?

be happy as who we r, what we r and do try to understand, that men do understand us little bit at least, and it is upto us to make them understand completely, by acknowledging their understanding...be patient!

Meenakshi,

Well I'm not saying that women are perfect. We also have our drawbacks. All I'm trying to convey is y do men always complainabout /whine over issues related to women. U r free to disagree!

I have read your blog over and over again..Its a very well written topic..but I dont agree totally withyou on it.(neither do I disagree). i lov the part whr u mention the entire women race is blamed if one does something wrong..while in the case of men its more individual. But I guess there is awareness amongst men too regarding this nowadays and many men are making a conscious effort to respect/appreciate women for their worth.And there are some things which come naturally to most women like waiting at the dinner table while a husband is at the meeting..but always remember, if the love and understanding prevail then there will come times when the man will wait at the table with his womans favorite meal cooked waiting for a compliment from her :)

I got to say I'm disappointed...are you trying to get back at "blogs of men who were complaining about women" or saying what you actually think....Your whole point is that its awful that men crib about women but you are cribbing about men throughout this blog... so women do this too (meenakshi seems to be an exception). we are bound to have some frustration with each other. But there is great deal of attraction too…. Also its not always women doing things for men… at least I have seen (in engineering) girls getting offered all kinds of help from guys (for obvious reasons).
The thing I don’t like the most about this blog is that you have put man at the center of woman’s universe & portrayed her & her happiness so dependant on what he does.
About compliment on loosing weight… If he does not notice you have lost weight may be it means that he likes you for who you are & not how you look… why won’t you think of it this way… in general girls get way too many compliments any way.
You say its hard to deal with us… you think you are easy to deal with. I think everybody knows what a guy wants… right!… women have complex needs & they don’t want to explicitly state them… we are supposed to “understand”… clear communication does not apply here does it…
Today girls are at level playing field or may be even at advantage. If you think you deserve more you just have to use the conditions better..

If the principal task of been a woman is "dealing with men" and ofcourse, been expensive, I think we men are just 'shit out of luck'.

We have come long way from women-liberation talking people (men and women). I truly agree with Sal, that women are equally gifted in mental capacity. Now the principal difference between Einstein and Frankenstein (however you spell that) is the way the put their head to use ;-).

Women can fly cars, drive planes, do everything a man does with equal potential. But, the only thing that a man doesn't do .. is cry that women are making fun or suspecting of his flying/'driving' skills. If chicks are so equal to us, why are they still seeking reservations in the Indian Parliament? I just don't get it.

P.S. I'd love if my wife wore a mini skirt. I'd be happy if she comfortable her body and not bicker about culture and "log kya kahenge" crap.

I hope my wife doesn't think about me as "vegetable" and a "thing to be take care off" when I retire. Coz I have plans for the future "us". Lets all hope that Sal was incorrect in potraying women's psyche on that regard.

-- ME and SAL are in love --
-- Conversation Abstract --

ME: I'm glad I can help you with your problems.
SAL: Oh 'x'. You dont know. I just want to thank you for been there. I would have been miserable without you.
ME: Sure! I'm glad to be with you too.
SAL: Oh No 'x'. I really mean it. If it hadn't been you, I would have died. Thanks for been there, just been there.

--- 6 Months pass ----
--- SAL and 'X' lose contact ---
--- SAL finds 'Y' ----

SAL: Oh 'Y'. You dont know. I just want to thank you for been there. I would have been miserable without you.
Y: Oh, I'm just trying to help.
SAL: Oh No 'x'. I really mean it. If it hadn't been you, I would have died. Thanks for been there, just been there.

In computer science dictionary, we call this a "CODE REUSE". It's always handy to have your key lines ready for a 'quicky'.

Well, I know what are they nice things she wants to hear! *BLUSH*. ;-) Guys you wanna check out the Author David D Angelo, he talks about what women really like to hear ;-)

Well, nice talking. Girls can call me a Bastard. They can call me Jerk. I'll love it. 'Coz that is exactly the chicks are looking for.

Good Job, Anon.
My dear SAL, it is not easy being a man either. Earning money is not easy, definitely not easier than spending on expensive perfumes and latest clothes in fashion.

You just mentioned various roles women play: mother and a wife, but you know the problem is women are more quarralsome among themselves than men. Hence, it becomes a man's responsibility to balance out between wife and mother and beleive me, this is even more difficult than earning livlihood.

Women dont really need love, all they need is pamper and expensive gifts for all the annivarsaries like: 1st meeting, 1st coffee, 1st dinner, 1st cinema and finally 1st humping.

SAL: The three words women most want to hear from a man are, "You lost weight"

Really, Can I add three more words after this so that the girl says yes to it: You lost weight, Let's have sex.

SAL: women are crazy, men are stupid. And the main reason women are crazy is that men are stupid."

Seems that you are really sick of men, dont go crazy, be a lesbian, get rid of your full time job also.

@SAL

I wasn't disappointed at you pointing out what men do wrong. And of course I reacted like a man, I wouldn’t want to react any other way (& give you compliments for this). Whats disappointing is that you don't think that we are equal and that is very unfortunate

EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND - POOR OLD RAYMOND BARRONE (I hope folks watch this sitcom)

So much for Women women women women.

I have an opinion about women who bring out this anti-man topic. But I know this conversation will go no where after 100 replys. So no point in discussing it here.

I can confidently say that very few women in todays world (for that matter in India) feel this way.

Is this probably the reason why all women reading this blog , havent replied. I hope so.

Anyways,

If men and women started picking faults they could go on for days. I have argued similarly with my mother, sister, and female friends but in vain. When I came across this blog those old memories got refreshed and I thought of sharing my 2 cents. One is the Sanskrit word "mamatva" meaning a sense of ownership. If you chose to give up the feeling of superiority and let the other win, harm will be done! Not to you but your pride. Two is that "Nobody is perfect." Both the genders have their shortcomings so the focus should be on accepting each other "as they are" and respect them. I have been trying to implement this in my life and I kinda like the outcomes.
