This is where I end up sounding 90 years old. What’s really bugging me about the recent nastiness at MCB is that it really highlights the fact that there are very,very few true gentlemen left in the world.
I’ll let others handle the feminist argument about the fact that men are bringing up female hormones as a way to attack females. I’ll just say that it’s rude, and as my grandmother used to say, “common”.
If I have to choose between being considered rude and being considered the loser of an argument, I’ll take losing every time. It’s just that old south raising of mine.
If you can’t treat a woman with respect, you are no gentleman.
Of course, I say that as if these young, rude, cynical whippersnappers give a damn.
But my dad would have kicked me across the room if I had ever said anything like that.
The old south is almost dead (good riddance to much of it). Sometimes I feel like the last Mohican in that respect.
People just don’t know how to behave anymore.
But then again, I posted a picture of an asshat in that thread, so who am I to talk?
Update: I am speaking specifically of those jerks who brought up hormones. Number9 is not the subject of my criticism at all (here)
