manlymanlyman: Finally....

Finally, a man whose proud of the fact that he is one, and isn't afraid to say it. I hate to say it, but that's a rarity these days.

Comptroller unapologetic after ogling aide
'Girl' ought to be 'happy that I observed her going out'

ANNAPOLIS, Maryland (AP) -- William Donald Schaefer, a former governor who is now state comptroller, ogled a young woman at a Statehouse meeting. And he made no apologies about it.

"She's a pretty little girl," the 84-year-old Democrat told reporters. "The day I don't look at pretty women is the day I die."

Schaefer stared intently at the woman as she walked toward the governor's office after she brought him a beverage Wednesday during a Board of Public Works meeting. Then he summoned her back, as people waiting to testify watched and waited.

The aide, looking puzzled, returned to the table, and Schaefer told her, "Walk again," and watched her as she made the second trip to the exit.

He then went into the governor's private office and returned to say the woman was embarrassed by the incident.

When reporters later asked him about the incident, he called their interest "dumb." He said "this little girl" ought to be "happy that I observed her going out the door."

"The one who is offended is me," he told the reporters.

Shareese DeLeaver, a spokeswoman for the Republican governor, declined to identify the aide, saying the aide did not want to talk to reporters or have her name published.

Schaefer is seeking re-election as comptroller in November and has spent 51 years in public service, including eight years as governor and 16 years as Baltimore's mayor, when he helped build the Inner Harbor and revitalize the downtown.

Odd remarks and antics by Schaefer at meetings of the Board of Public Works are commonplace. He once complained about a Spanish-speaking fast-food worker and has suggested creating a public registry of people with AIDS.

He also has referred to women as "little girls" -- a term celebrated by some women who have worked for him, who say he treated them with respect.

After a campaign ad in 2002 suggested he was unfair to women, some former employees held a rally and waved signs that read, "Little Girls for Schaefer."

manlymanlyman: Definitions

"fem·i·nism Audio pronunciation of "Feminism" ( P ) Pronunciation Key (fm-nzm)
n.

1. Belief in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes.
2. The movement organized around this belief."

Taken from dictionary.com.

Do you think this is an accurate representation of Feminism?

I believe that this is merely a veneer that Feminists like to put forward, shouting for equality and freedom from the perceived patriarchy. However, peer beyond this veil, and you will see it has gone further then mere equality, but towards the lessening of men--a reverse sexism.

manlymanlyman: Men and Cosmetics?!

"The new customers of the beauty industry are men what with various skin-care brands, both national and international increasingly targeting them with their products."

"These products range from Active Face Scrub and Under Eye Serum to Moisture Balm and Total Wrinkle Control. Besides, it has also come out with a product called ‘Fatigue Fighter’ for men that claims to provide tired skin with an “immediate, refreshing boost” to eliminate signs of stress and fatigue."

"“The response in the last one month has been good and while we thought that our customers would start from 18-year olds, a large number of teenaged schoolgoing boys are trying out this product,” Mohan Goenka, director, Emami Limited says."

"“That’s why they are more conscious of their looks now so that they can present themselves well,” he adds. Interestingly, in south, the skin care clinic gets a good 30 per cent of its revenues from men."

Personally, I find make-up un-manly.

manlymanlyman: What does it mean to be a man?

What is being a man? Is it simply having male reproductive organs? In the way one behaves? A bit of both?
