So it would appear society has awakened to this long-held truth about our treatment of women. And this goes way beyond any of our ideas of what’s going on. This goes past any such labels, past any such words we may put on this issue. In fact, it even goes past anything to do with our allegiances to any such government party. I never understood why people in my country (America), in MODERN day, often put so much weight on both the Democrats and Republicans. Because let’s face it, the Democrats and Republicans actually used to mean something back when America was a young and naive country. Today, however, those parties mean nothing to, us, “The People”, in our modern-day America.
What we’re dealing with goes past all of that, and it goes directly to what it means to be human in this world.
This is the first time in a long time that we have made any real progress with addressing a really horrible reality that women (in the real world, not just social media) face in society. This is why there’s that old adage “this is a man’s world.” You know, the saying should really read “this is a predator’s world” because all women, and the good men, suffer under the presiding jurisdictions of dictator-like and cruel men. Because let’s face reality, that’s the only type of man who can “make things happen” in this type of world; the “natural” world.
I put “natural” in parenthesis, because these brutish and domineering men still live fully with the mentality of the “dog-eat-dog world”. Which leads me to another, yet contradicting truth. In fact, we do live in a “dog-eat-dog world”. Thus, men who have “reached the top” of whatever hierarchy they’re apart of, have lost all semblance of their human soul by then. The reason being; they must act as the calculating captain of their ships. Thus, they allow themselves to over-indulge into the pleasures of life’s gifts; which sadly includes sleeping with women whenever they think they can.
This is where we, as a society, come full-circle into what’s being unveiled in Hollywood at the moment. Because let’s face it, sexual harassment to women isn’t just happening in Hollywood; it’s happening in all sectors of society. The sad truth, as many of you may have already known, is that this kind of behavior of top-executive men abusing their power; is the fact that this has been going on since the beginning of time for human existence.
Like I said in my previous post (in “Philosophical Journey Part 1”) the natural world is one in which cruelty and viciousness exists and prevails; when perceived by our own human perception. It’s a world in which only the most physically demanding males create the rules and laws of the jungle. Thus, in some sad way, the executives at these top levels have allowed their more animal sides to take over their actions when they feel they’re in the higher standing.
It sickens me, and it always has, that even as intelligent and creative as human beings can be; that we still act as base-animals. That we allow our fears to take over our actions, that we are afraid to change the status-quo in fear that we may look “weird” or “strange” for doing so. That’s all life is for humans, is living “the norm”. The only time “the norm” ever changes though, is if we all begin to speak up. Even then, this comes down to a very in-grained part of the man’s psyche. I can see how much masculinity is tied with our species existence; not only in society, but moreso in the natural world.
For all the good society bestows upon masculinity, it’s time to treat it with more force and not so fragile-like. I’m tired of beating around the bush with my fellow men; it’s like men are too sensitive to get a dose of their own medicine. I truly feel bad for good women out there who have to deal with this utter crap-attitude. I mean, no one (including me) is perfect, but the least we can do as a society is to start treating our boys more like men; and holding our men to more accountability. The fact of the matter is; nobody in society ever holds these powerful people to accountability. In fact, power corruption affects both men and women, but that’s another article for another day.
Because today, I want people to focus solely on what’s finally getting the spotlight. The issues that have plagued women, that have haunted them for their entire lives since time immemorial. It’s an issue that we as a society must start addressing. If we can begin to hold our boys and men more towards the realistic side of humanity; meaning holding them accountable for their actions; then we can begin to start working on the pains and ills that our women face everyday.
Remember this; everything that’s happening is a power-struggle between men and women. It’s about finding that fine-line of basic treatment that will make a huge difference in how both men and women live side-by-side. Hopefully, this tragic truth of Hollywood’s casting couch sheds more light on similar issues plaguing our society. Then; and only then, will we truly begin to see any such real progress being made.
