This is not to betray my gender nor to agree with the radical feminists that all men are chauvinist pigs.
Look, fellas, one of us has to admit it publicly. We've screwed up. From the very first tribal chieftains to jungle shamans to Machiavellian princes to Hugh Hefner and Dubya Bush strutting their libidos, the male of the species has been causing more wars, more rape-and-pillaging, and more smack-in-the-mouth everyday violence than any three Vulcan Planets could have ever dreamed up.
We've been in charge ever since Adam, and just look at the bloody history our egotistical, fist-in-the--face bravado has created. Lately women -- in government, colleges, medical schools and at the Olympics -- have been inching up and passing us by. Maybe it's time they did. Maybe the world could benefit from Innate feminine qualities like caring and compassion. They sure as hell can't do any worse than we have!
So -- with all due deference to my college fraternity brothers, my son and grandsons, and even my no-nonsense brother...let it be said it's time to shelve the the strutting...butt patting...wife jokes...secret handshakes and decoder rings. Time to grow up to the fact that just maybe we weren't actually ordained by God or Nature or even Pope to be "master-of-all-we-survey."
By the way, who ever wrote that line????
