It’s not PMS, feminist says: I’m just a horrible person all the time!

It’s not PMS, feminist says: I’m just a horrible person all the time!

I think this may be the funniest thing I’ve read today:

I am not a nice person. Never have been, probably never will be. But people just can’t accept that. People can accept that a man can be naturally unpleasant (Dr. House, anyone) but not a woman, apparently.

And NO I’m NOT on my period!

I can’t even count the number of times I’ve received a comment like this from another woman:

“Is it the cramps? Here, I have some Midol in my purse.”
“Geez I know its that time of the month but shut up.”
“You’re always such a bitch when you’re on your period!”

Forget that if that last one was true, I’d probably need to make an OBGYN appointment, ASAP, because it would mean I’m always on my period.

Why do women assume that this is ok to ask? Its nobodies business. “Hi, I just met you and don’t even know your name, but you’re a huge bitch so is it your period?” Yeah, sure…

Just so I understand… this girl comes right out and admits that she’s a bitch. She says she’s a generally unpleasant person. And then she turns around and complains about how people react to that??

In the comments, other feminists generally responded that it was “OK” for men to be rude and display a lack of manners, but women were somehow expected to be cute and smiley all the time. I find that categorically untrue. I have seen plenty of women be plenty bitchy, without the entire office staff haranguing them about whether or not it’s that time of the month. Men supposedly cannot be asked whether or not they’re on their period, but hey — if a man is being especially whiny and bitchy, then I still ask him if it’s that time of the month. Because he’s a man, it’s even more wounding. And it gets the point across — you’re basically telling him, “Dude, you’re being a douche. Stop.”

The second problem with this take is that, even if it were true that it is accepted for men to be grouchy and mannerless and it isn’t for women, why on Earth does that mean that we should emulate that behavior? Just because a man can (allegedly) walk around acting like a jack-off doesn’t mean that us girls should, too.

What is it with feminists and wanting women to act exactly the same way men do??

Still, the real treasure of this post was that a woman who is apparently such a raging bitch that strangers feel compelled to comment on it is complaining about what those strangers then say. Anyone find that funny besides me?

    I guess I have a different take on what you posted. Seems to me she might be complaining about the fact of women making such comments to her. Guys don’t make those comments and if they did, they’d be in a world of legal hurt. So why is it okay for women to be so rude to other women while guys can’t be the same rudeness to those women?

    Considering the site source, your take on it seems more accurate but discounting site source and just reading it as a piece by itself, that was my take on it.

  • CaptDMO says:

    Here’s a thought.
    If a man seems unreasonably gruff or rude (who’s standards?) try
    “Sheesh! Who pissed on YOUR corn flakes this morning?”

    If a male is being especially whiny and bitchy, ask him about Prop 8.

  • Kortnee says:

    You know, I’ll admit to not being a terribly nice person. I have never been so bad that somebody’s asked me if it was that time of the month unless SHE was being bitchy, too. If you’re that big of a bitch, you probably think you’re a wit so, you know, come up with something witty to say in response. . . or own the bitchiness and stop getting pissy when somebody calls you on it.

    “What is it with feminists and wanting women to act exactly the same way men do??”

    Well, that should be obvious. It is because feminists know, deep down inside, that being a man is a lot better then being a woman. :p

    Actually, to be more serious, they have been programed to view men as being evil and bad all the time, and these women wish to believe that the reason they can’t be evil and bad all the time is because they aren’t men. So, they complain that men can be evil and bad all the time but women can’t be evil and bad all the time. Of course, what they don’t understand is that men can’t be evil and bad all the time unless they are willing to pay the price, just like women can’t be evil and bad all the time without paying the price.

    Am I making sense? If not, I blame it on feminists.

  • lordsomber says:

    Um, has anyone told her “Dr. House” is a character on a TV show? He’s, like, not for real.

  • Daniel says:

    Rather than get offended at others, she should look at her behaviors that are inviting this criticism.

    (Sorry if I’m simply stating the obvious. If someone asks me why I’m being so rude, I usually try to figure out what I did that came across as rude, and do it differently next time.)

  • So many of these new-age radical-leftist philosophies have to do with throwing off one bundle of manacles and shackling oneself into another. Labor unions, for example; they’re there to secure your “rights” against that big bad boss so he can’t tell you what to do. But now the labor boss can tell you how high to jump. So you’ve traded one big bad boss for another big bad boss. God? Forget God; He wants me to come to church on Sunday, and that means stepping away from my PS3 for nearly 3 hours. So I believe in Gaea instead. But Gaea has a rather enslaving religion too: I have to keep my carbon emissions down or she’ll blow up and launch my flaming butt into space. And I have to believe evolution explains EVERYTHING. It has all the traits of not only a church, but a cult. Again: One encumbering set of codes and taboos given up, another one taken on.

    That’s the way the feminist movement is. Girls have to go to “finishing school” to find out how to curtsy, and extend their pinkies when drinking tea. Guys don’t. How unfair! So along comes the fem movement to rescue the poor dears. One door is opened, another one is closed: Don’t keep your baby, don’t wear a skirt too often, don’t under ANY circumstances act like Sarah Palin. They have all these allegiances with things that have absolutely nothing to do with freedom and opportunity for women — like gun control and gay marriage.

    To this festering stewpot of useless rules, this little chickee would like to add the dictum that you have to be a bitch. Or women shouldn’t notice when other women are being bitches. Or a bitch is just as decent a person as a non-bitch? I dunno. Hard to keep track of this stuff. I’d rather just go home and have a beer. Which tastes so much better when a pretty lady brings it to me so I don’t have to get up…BWAHAHAHA!

  • hiraethin says:

    See, I think that without knowing it this woman is paying these other people a compliment. She’s a bitch, she admits it, enough so that people say so to her face, but the common assumption is that it is not her fault, it is probably just the vagaries of biology. They are assuming she would not be so unpleasant if she had the choice. She appears to be offended that these people think she is not the author of her own bad behaviour. It is a good thing that she owns her bad behaviour, but shame on her for not being embarassed by it.

  • Sean says:

    After being privy to her little tirade, my only reply is, “Shut up, bitch!”.

  • Stephen J. says:

    In all fairness, there is a bit of me that has a reluctant admiration for the honesty here. “I’m not going to lay my unpleasant behaviour off on my metabolic cycle; I’m going to own up to it and make it mine. It’s all me; no apology, no shame.”

    And it is a reasonable complaint to observe that guys, especially guys in positions of authority, often do wind up getting cut more slack than girls for being unpleasant to people. (An unmentioned corollary here is that if you can lay off somebody’s confrontational style on a metabolic shift, it is very easy to dismiss the substance of what they’re confronting you about as well.) Double standards are still double standards.

    That said, I’ll quote old Bob Heinlein on her approach, which is not unique to women:

    Moving parts in rubbing contact require lubrication to avoid excessive wear. Honorifics and formal politeness provide lubrication where people rub together. Often the very young, the untraveled, the naive, the unsophisticated deplore these formalities as “empty,” “meaningless,” or “dishonest,” and scorn to use them. No matter how “pure” their motives, they thereby throw sand into machinery that does not work too well at best.

  • Cylar says:

    Evidently the “bitchiness” actually bothers this writer on some level, or she wouldn’t be talking about it. It’s like she realizes she’s got an attitude problem but refuses to muster the will to do anything about it.

    She’ll wind up bitter and angry at the world. (And alone.) Oh wait, that describes a lot of hardcore liberals, doesn’t it?

  • Andy O. says:

    This is just an example of feminists making an excuse. I see the same thing with sex. You get the “Its ok for men so sleep around but not women, so therefore women should sleep around too”, when in reality, the only guys who think that way have the maturity of 12 year olds. Really, most feminists have the maturity of 12 year olds, too.

  • Tennwriter says:

    Double standards are good if they are measuring two different things. At some really basic level, all humans are the same….so we impose morality…thou shalt not murder….but at the level of man and woman relationships, we are quite different so different standards are sensible.

    Women do not want to be treated just like a guy even if they say they do.

  • Ralph Gizzip says:

    Shannon, men do make those kinds of comments but only to other men. (We may be dumb but we’re not stupid) Of course, my remark is usually, “Who lit the fuse on her tampon?”

  • Stephen J. says:

    “Stephen J. has been eating way too much soy products for WAY too long now…Time to check down there and take an inventory, buddy, you might be missing a couple of pieces.”

    Dude, all my parts are present and in great working order (believe me, one reason I keep tuning in to Cassy’s blog is her pics). Including my brain, which remains capable of making subtle distinctions and separating good points from bad ones without legitimizing the latter.

  • 5kidsnadog says:

    Is it just me, or is there something just wrong with being a bitch and NOT being apologetic? When did we get to the point that being unkind is just another lifestyle choice?

    Could all these idiots just go to California and leave the rest of us alone? I’m willing to give them the coast and the nice weather if I just don’t have to cow-tow to their idiocy anymore. I envision all of them gathered in California uh-huh-ing each other whilst we work on severing the state at the fault line. I’m going to go warm up my Dremel, just in case they go for my suggestion….

    Actually, when my hubby behaves in this manner, I tell him to “Quit being such a bitch!”
    My teenage daughter finds this especially funny…

    I meant that guys don’t make those types of comments to the girl in question in a work setting.

  • Cylar says:

    Don’t suggest that any more of those kinds of people move out here. We have way too many already. They congregate in the Bay Area and LA in such large numbers, that the rest of us have no say in the way this state is run.

    I’d rather they stayed put and just changed their attitudes.

    Maybe, but you sound like a friggin’ weenie in your original post, which is likely what prompted his comment in the first place.

    I used to run a loading dock for paper and sanitary supplies.
    When a driver would return complaining about how hard his day was (after going out with 10 stops and a half empty truck, one of the other drivers would take any opportunity to tape a tampon to the wall of the whiner’s truck. Usually the whiner got the message.
