Dante Moore is 33 years old, a computer engineer, has an 11 year old child from a previous relationship, a girlfriend of two years and says he’s never found true love. He’s also the unlikely author of The Re-education Of The Female, a recent addition to the bestsellers list that teaches women how to make a relationship last. Anyone interested in the jewels of wisdom contained in this book, which is flooding off shelves by the way, aimed at making women better at relationships?
“Men never really ask for anything. They command. And believe me, what you wont do, ten broads round the corner will.”
This from someone whose longest relationship is two years? Wonder if he’s ever thought about changing his expectations to reasonable ones instead of writing a guide designed at turning women into his own personal slaves.
“When you go to the grocery store to shop, do you pick out the nastiest-looking, most rotten, smelliest piece of fruit or meat you can find? Oh, you don’t? Why not? It’s the same with men when they see baby elephant sized, out of shape women.”
How many of my female readers are starting to get angry now?
Lets look at this a different way though. There are dozens of books out there which tell women what to change in their men and how best to change it. Almost every women’s magazine has some article (One article in Kim’s magazine stated that turning off the power is a good way to get a guy away from video games. If I lost a save game containing almost two hundred hours of play racked up over months of spare time, just because my girl killed the power so we could spend more time together I’d be pissed!) in it about how to change things in men (I still remember seeing a copy of Cosmopolitan with “Why All Men Are Scum” in big letters on the front cover). Dante Moore may very well be a pig trying to enforce his own mysogonist views onto women because they’re too individual to follow his every command, but he’s only doing to women what they’ve been doing to men for years. He’s trying to create something totally for his own needs without taking the other person’s needs into mind.
So this post goes out to everyone that’s bought that book, to every guy who wants his woman follow his every command, to every woman who tries to change her man to fit her ideal view. Stop it. Stop acting like an idiot. If you love someone, you love them for the things you have in common as well as your differences. If you can’t love them fully without changing them into someone they’re not then you shouldn’t be with them. End of. No conversation. Consider that the things you’re trying to change may be exactly what someone else is looking for in a relationship, get a life and end the relationship if something bothers you that much.
A relationship is a partnership. You shouldn’t need a book or magazine article to teach you that any partnership is about give and take. No-one should be trying to change the other person. No-one should be looking for ways to change themselves. You look after each other and use your strengths to help cover each other’s weaknesses. Simple isn’t it? Shame so many people are too lazy to try respecting others and more willing to completely change themselves and their partners for an easy life.
