As I said in the beginning of this mini series. I appreciate the attention given my work although it’s fictional it does address lot of issues discussed in the classroom last Thursday.
My personal assessment of the discussion is that in the political climate we face today it was good to talk about these things for too many lives and liberties are at stake to remain silent.
But on the other hand, I know that all men do not behave like cads. There are decent men out there.
I won’t deny nor pretend the cads doesn’t exist and aren’t multiplying like weeds. It’s like the Emo thing. It’s a lifestyle that focus totally on ‘ME’.
But the system of things they stand is at odd with normal, decent fathers, brothers, sons and all other males who do not feel this way and wants a family with the woman they love. But often times by the time he meet her and fall in love; she has weathered through so many cads that she doesn’t trust anything male. And then he has to work hard to undo the image the cads has instilled in her mind.
Patriarchy isn’t healthy for males nor females.
This system is just as any other system designed to keep a selected few in power and prestige. It wasn’t designed to help the average man. It was designed to make him feel he is in power. So that the average man would help keep the leaders (some were once religious leaders) and those in wealth and power in powerful standings in the community, town, city or nation.
Come to think of it…what has this system of things done for the average man? Nothing, that I can see. He faces strife out in the world and with all the foolish macho man notions implanted in his head since birth, he’s going to face more strife at home too.
As I see it, it create more problems than it solves.
I’m talking about a normal man. I’m not talking about a psychopath who gets a thrill out of seeing women cry and beating up children. Normal men do not get a thrill out of seeing these things and do not practice them.
Things like this is what I was talking about when I said write and continue to write. You never know who is reading. You can’t control someone’s assessment of your work and don’t attempt to. Just write and let the readers decide.
However, as you can see nor of the work presented has a high reviews or ratings. That’s why I say rating and reviews couldn’t be the whole denominator in evaluating a book.
