Hey everyone, I was just reading Trifles, a pretty ingenious play written by Susan Glaspell which tells of the trifles or seemingly insignificant details that the women in the play notice. The men on the other hand are condescending in their dialogue and mock the women for their petty problems.
ANYWAY, this got me thinking, are all men like that?
Certainly a few lecturers I have come across...but... ALL men?? I certainly hope not.
Next, I thought of analysing the guys in my class to see what they were like, but then it HIT ME! I had the perfect opportunity to test the theory out.
When the boys in my class play futsal in the evenings, occasionally they don’t have enough players. When they are desperate they call me in to fill up the spot, and later on if people do come, they are too nice to tell me to get out.
Firstly, let me just say,
ME CANNOT PLAY FUTSAL
Just like dancing, I can’t play foot related sports that well, because I was born with poor brain-feet coordination. Yes, you could say I am retarded in that department.
So having a girl PLUS a handicapped player is not what everybody wants but here are two different types of guys that I have played with, and you decide which one you like better. No, I will decide.
Type one, will tell me to stand at the goal post. To just stand there and do nothing, because yes, we all know I’m a liability and may get in the way, BUT STILL... if that is my “JOB” honestly I’d rather jog...
And fine, but sometimes this one will shoot by himself...and if he doesn’t score...OH MY GOODNESS
then I’m like...=.=’’’’ I hate you.
Type 2 also knows that I am hopeless but will say things like. “Come on Liza tackle, Liza, jaga die, Takpa takpa good try (I shot an own goal)... and at least I feel sort of useful...LOL....and this type of guy passes me the ball because there is a chance that I mIGHTTTT score....
So in life, you don’t want to end up with a man who falls under TYPE 1 who doesn’t think you amount to much, doesn’t think you can do anything and laughs at the fact that you MAY BE physically weaker.
*do I sound like I have been in and out of relationships??* LOL...
Men under type 2 will see your strong points, and let you play the game so to speak...and make you feel better about your self...
I know after reading, ignoring the whole point, my mother will probably call and say “What is this LISS... you playing football with boys??!!? Chehhh.”
and then my mother will ask "you have a boyfriend ah??" "don't lie ah Lizz.."
and then she'll conclude with..."anyway you stick to jogging...don't let anyone see you play football la...chih"
But anyway, my fears are eased because not ALL men are egoistic male chauvinist pigs..
