Songs to hate men to

| 5 Comments

I'm going to have something more serious to say about this later, but in the meantime, here is my response, through music, to the claim that I hate men. Why on Earth wouldn't I?

1. "Letter to a John" by Ani DiFranco
"Women learn to be women/and men learn to be men/and I don't blame it all on you/but I don't want to be your friend."

2. "Goodbye Earl" by The Dixie Chicks
"Well it wasn't two weeks/after she got married that/Wanda started gettin' abused/She put on dark glasses and long sleeved blouses/And make-up to cover a bruise/Well she finally got the nerve to file for divorce/She let the law take it from there/But Earl walked right through that restraining order/And put her in intensive care."

3. "Polly" by Nirvana
"Polly wants a cracker/I think I should get off her first/I think she wants some water/To put out the blow torch."

4. "Ballad of Yvonne Johnson" by Eliza Gilkyson
"I didn’t have a language for the pain I suffered through/escaping into marriage, but your past just catches up with you/until I had three children and a ragged family/a desperate urge to keep them from the wolves that got to me, boys/wolves that got to me."

5. "Cell Block Tango (He Had it Coming)" from Chicago!
"He had it coming/He had it coming/He took a flower/In its prime/And then he used it/And he abused it/It was a murder/But not a crime!"

6. "Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman
"You got a fast car/And I got a job that pays all our bills/You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids/I'd always hoped for better/Thought maybe together you and me would find it/I got no plans I ain't going nowhere/So take your fast car and keep on driving."

7. "The Thunder Rolls" by Garth Brooks
"She's waitin' by the window/When he pulls into the drive/She rushes out to hold him/Thankful he's alive/Through all the wind and rain/A strange new perfume blows/And the lightnin' flashes in her eyes/And he knows that she knows/And the thunder rolls."

8. "Janie's Got a Gun" by Aerosmith
"They said when Janie was arrested/they found him underneath a train/But man, he had it comin' Now that Janie's got a gun/she ain't never gonna be the same."

9. "Luka" by Suzanne Vega
"They only hit until you cry/And after that you don't ask why/You just don't argue anymore."

10. "Behind the Wall" by Tracy Chapman
"And when they arrive/They say they can't interfere/With domestic affairs/Between a man and his wife/And as they walk out the door/The tears well up in her eyes."

11. "Caleb Meyer" by Gillian Welsh
"Caleb Meyer, your ghost is gonna/wear them rattlin' chains./but when I go to sleep at night,/Don't you call my name."

12. "Me and a Gun" by Tori Amos
"Me and a gun/and a man/On my back/But I haven't seen Barbados/So I must get out of this."

13. "Only Women Bleed" by Lita Ford (originally Alice Cooper)
"He lies right at you/You know you hate this game/He slaps you once in a while and you live and love in pain."

14. "Ladykillers" by Lush
"So he talks for hours about his sensitive soul/And his favorite subject is sex/I don't think he even wanted it/But, Christ this guy's too much."

15. "I Hate Men" from Kiss Me Kate
"But I hate men./Of all the types I've ever met within our democracy,/I hate most the athlete with his manner bold and brassy/He may have hair upon his chest but, sister, so has Lassie."

I've been thinking a lot lately about hating men, and also about all the wonderful male friends that I have. Mostly thinking about how those things maybe seem contradictory to certain groups of people...but they really aren't.

Anyway.

Word.

I absolutely HATE men! I think they are worthless, selfish, inconsiderate bastards!! They have no respect, and think who the hell they think they are; when it comes down to the bottom line, they are worth NOTHING! Women are much stronger, and are able to live on their own. In my opinion, they do not need a man. Women should learn to be more independent and live by themselves; they would have a much better lifestyle and less CRAP AND AGGRAVATION! I am alone and independent, and have always been, and I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT! I do not miss having a man in my life whatsoever. Being along and lonely are two very d different things. I am alone, but I enjoy every single aspect of it. If men know a women is vulnerable, he will take advantage. It is better to give them the boot then to put up wiht their BULLSHIT!

To all the man haters out there.... I don't even know what to say, but I think it is bull. I bet you $1,000,000 that every one of you is not a political warrior, ,but rather a girl who has not been paid not been paid enough attention to by the boys you wanted, or has been the dumpee instead of the dumper, thus holding on to resentment ( we have all been the the dumpers & dumpees) So, you feel hurt and powerless, an take it out on all men. It couldn't possibly of been your fault? Lets just lump all my inadequacies in a convenient little man hating ball. That makes it all more simple doesn't it. Men are just one side of the coin. Men and women are two halves of the same whole. To make a blanket statement that you hate men, is like making a blanket statement that you hate "blacks". Im sorry if you aren't as pretty or deserving, or whatever your issues are. But don't blame your shortcomings on "MEN"(said with disgust). I tell you, some times I hate women, and I am one.

I don't hate ALL men. In fact I hate very few of them. But that is the GREAT thing about being a woman. When we are screwed over by one man (or a few over time) we can sit back and partake in the man hating game (that I am sure even your stuck up self, lizard, has enjoyed from time to time) that allows us to blame all our problems on the opposite sex, AND GET AWAY WITH IT. Its part of being upset, Lizard. And if you arent able to realize that then all of them fancy smancy analogies, comparisons, and every last bit of your grammatically correct rant do not help cover up the fact that your an idiot... Your distain for the women who are in man hating mode, and your pathetic attempt to get your point across makes me wonder if you are one of those women who are saving up for that big operation... But I suppose I have wandered a tad off subject. Let me end this by saying, women hating men... Its an exageration of a broken hearted woman... Plain and simple. SOOOOOO Lumber Jack Jane, you can pack it in a bit and let us be women you dumb dyke bitch...
