I was going to write a rant about this article, but I’m too angry after reading it to be coherent on the topic. Time to cut another check to NARAL!


There’s a great quote from Vin Diesel (hear me out) in last month’s Elle magazine. Asked if there’s any movie character with whom he identifies, he says, “Clark Gable in Gone With the Wind. Here’s this guy saying, ‘I may be rough around the edges, but I’m the better man for you, and you’re still locked over there with the pretty boy.'”

I’ll admit it: I’m reading Gone with the Wind right now, and I have a huge literary crush on Captain Rhett Butler.

Where are all the Rhett Butlers? Dashing! Dangerous! Brave!

They’ve all gone the way of the cowboy. I blame modern life. You can’t be a Rhett sitting behind a computer in a cubicle. You can’t be a courageous blockade-runner when nobody blockades things any more. Now, if you got kicked out of West Point and allegedly knocked some girl up and disowned by your rich family, there wouldn’t be shame in that, and you might be considered a “bad boy” but chances are you’d probably also be into drugs and have dated Lindsay Lohan and get featured in the New York Times Thursday Styles (or you’d be this guy).

Men, I ask you – why aren’t you committing more courageous acts to show women how much you love them? I know it’s not the burning of Atlanta and I’m not asking you to steal me a horse to get my pregnant sister-in-law and I out of town (I can’t stop thinking about this book), but why aren’t you trying to impress me by being a man? Hint: playing video games, being an asshole, driving a BMW, or wearing sweaters with stretched-out necks does not prove that you are manly.

Where are the men who ask women out, instead of giving them their phone number and leaving it up to the lady? Where are the men who are actively trying to make the world safe and comfortable for women? For Christ’s sake, where are the men who know how to fix the electrical outlet in my bathroom without consulting the internet first?

    Brian, I know this may be considered a trite observation, but I’ll say it anyway. Bravery and humility go hand-in-hand. One can’t truly be brave unless one is humble.

    ” :banana: ” I read “Gone With The Wind” several years ago and remember thinking that Scarlett and Rhett seemed to have a very passionate but volatile type of relationship. One riddled with too much drama and manipulation for my taste. I prefer a Cary Grant type of guy. Manners and class. ” 😛 “

    I just got to the “rape” scene in the book, and if you read that brief bit as him taking her against her will, you’re an idiot.

    You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Just as many women long for the days when men treated them (and, in fact, they acted) differently, men too wax nostalgic for the days when women weren’t so complicated (and bitchy). Go ahead and chalk it up to women’s liberation and the minimization (and in some cases, inversion) of gender differences in societal relationships.

    Call it how you see it, but in the end, this post is a perfect example that even in this sexually-enlightened age, some things never change. Namely that women will always complain about men.
