Real men

Just so we understand each other, the attitudes below reflect a perspective that is shallow and shows a person who is now less of a man for his actions, a person who is cowardly and angry in equal measure, stomping his foot like a two year old in a temper tantrum. He has taken nothing from anyone, but sacrificed dignity and self-respect in the process. It's sad, really.

And heads-up to all mayors out there, but especially to Mayor Bowers of my fair city: take heed. The world needs more everyday heroes like Mayor Adler who have the sophistication to turn discrimination into an active statement of inclusion and radical tolerance.

On May 26, 2017, the Mayor of Austin received this email:
I hope every man will boycott Austin and do what he can to diminish Austin and to cause damage to the city’s image. The theater that pandered to the sexism typical of women will, I hope, regret it’s decision. The notion of a woman hero is a fine example of women’s eagerness to accept the appearance of achievement without actual achievement. Women learn from an early age to value make-up, that it’s OK to pretend that you are greater than you actually are. Women pretend they do not know that only men serve in combat because they are content to have an easier ride. Women gladly accept gold medals at the Olympics for coming in 10th and competing only against the second class of athletes. Name something invented by a woman! Achievements by the second rate gender pale in comparison to virtually everything great in human history was accomplished by men, not women. If Austin does not host a men only counter event, I will never visit Austin and will welcome it’s deteriorati on. And I will not forget that Austin is best known for Charles Whitman. Does Austin stand for gender equality or for kissing up to women? Don’t bother to respond. I already know the answer. I do not hate women. I hate their rampant hypocrisy and the hypocrisy of the “women’s movement.” Women do not want gender equality; they want more for women. Don’t bother to respond because I am sure your cowardice will generate nothing worth reading.
