Bitch on the Blog

I am enarmoured by men. Totally.  I am in awe of men. Totally. Would I like to be one? I am happy to be a woman.

If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times: Men are vulnerable. Very. Man touches my heart as few women will. Woman may be weaker physically but inside a rod of steel runs through her.

Sartre said of woman “Ca pleure comme ca pisse”. True. When a man sheds tears the world, my world, stands still. Breaks my heart.

I rarely watch films. Just now “The Departed”. My god. Says the mother of an Angel.

And no, none of the guys cried. They just died.



  1. Who said “Show me a woman in a position of power and I’ll show you a woman with more testosterone than any man.” ?

    So she sits down to cry?

    We are all vulnerable, Ursula….. make no mistake about that.

    Steel is an interesting choice…. I hope that my reinforcement is provided by Arachne’s sisters.

    As for crying… oh yes…else how would I have survived?

  2. The cocktail of hormones running through all of us is, to say the least, befuddling. It ebbs and flows and does wonky things with our mind/body connection–male and female alike.

    There are all forms of strength and all can be found in either gender. I often marvel at at different women are from each other; yet we focus on the difference between women and men because of a few obvious physical “plumbing” and creation (or recreation) fixtures.

    I think if we were used to seeing men express their emotions more freely (in terms of crying rather than hauling off and hitting something), our female hearts wouldn’t be quite as broken up by the tears our lovely men spill. But, being a sociologist, I’m programmed to find cultural explanations for our behavior rather than default to biological reasons for them. 😉

  4. I rather like Scorcese’s portrayal of violence through the medium of film. Great cast of characters in this one.

    As to the issue of shedding tears, while I never advocate constant display of blubbering and weeping from either sex, I am wary of any man or woman incapable of shedding a tear or two once in a while, in both extreme joy or extreme sorrow.

  5. Tears, when appropriate, touch the hearts of all. I didn’t grow up seeing strong men cry except on rare occassions and it was truly heartbreaking when it happened.
