"She loved expressive words, and treasured them as some girls might have treasured jewels. To her, they were as lustrous pearls, threaded on the Crimson cord of vivid fancy. When she met with a new one, she uttered it over and over to herself in solitude, weighing it, caressing it, infusing it with the radiance of her voice, making it her own in all its possibilities forever."
-Lucy Maud Montgomery, The Story Girl
I always enjoy quaint cafes with good food, whipped in with the medley of pleasant atmospheric sounds and colorful people. There are moments when I obtain material to write about.
During one visit, I happened to over hear a man loudly conversing over the phone when he enthusiastically let this preposterous statement clumsily fall from his lips, "Man, I love women, but they are crazy! Just in the way that they think."
I was instantly repulsed with badly beaten ear drums. Since I couldn't address him for his rather misguided comment (because I unwillingly overheard it and wasn't invited to the conversation), I had to blog about it as I am doing now.
To the men who may be just as misinformed as the guy I introduced above, I'm willing to extend a helping hand to you.
We are not crazy because we think differently than you. We are WOMEN. We don't operate under the same infrastructure as men. Many of us (I can really only speak for myself) work hard to understand the opposite sex so that we live harmoniously as your help-mate, not your doormat. So before you try to get us the next available cushy cell in the psychiatric ward, I kindly suggest consulting with God about what his purpose for a woman is (find out what yours is as well), and abandon your distorted view/expectation of what she is supposed to be for your ego. If you expect a woman to conduct herself as a man, then perhaps you should reassess your sexual preference because a woman thinking like a man is unnatural and a brutal assault to our quintessence.
Don't cheat yourself out of your own blessing. Abort the sanctimonious narrow-minded thought process. It's a turn off.
