If we ever required a simple, contemporary example of the utter contempt and disdain our society has for men, it can be found in an entirely unimportant yet highly instructive tweet from a rather disturbed human being named Miley Cyrus.
There are a number of reasons one could cite for questioning this woman’s judgement and taste but let’s put those aside and focus on her tweet.
Urging her followers not to “give up” in their pursuit of decent men, Cyrus wrote:1
“There are good men out there guys don’t give up,”. You don’t have to be gay, there are good people with dicks out there, you’ve just got to find them.”
“You’ve got to find a dick that’s not a dick, you know? I always thought I had to be gay, because I thought all guys were evil, but it’s not true,” she explained. “There are good people out there that just happen to have dicks. I’ve only ever met one, and he’s on this live.”
Anyone like to hazard a guess as to what it was about this comment that caused a universal online meltdown?
Was it her assertion that she believed all guys were evil?
Perhaps it was her casual, patronizing play on the word dick.
“You’ve got to find a dick that’s not a dick, you know.”
Or perhaps it was the inference that good men are incredibly rare, even if they do exist.
“There are good people out there that just happen to have dicks. I’ve only ever met one, and he’s on this live.”
No-it was none of the above.
The outrage was based upon the unforgivable suggestion that being gay is something you can choose to be for convenience sake or simply because you are tired of one gender.
Hell was unleashed by progressives and the LGBT activists who accused Cyrus of:
“perpetuating the idea that sexuality is a choice.”
Cyrus, who has previously declared herself both “pansexual and gender fluid,” responded to the controversy on Monday, claiming that she was “talking shit about sucky guys” and reiterating her support for the LGBT agenda.
Being the ignorant Neanderthal I am, I confess to checking exactly what pansexual meant with the help of Google.
Pansexuality, or omnisexuality, is the sexual, romantic or emotional attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity. Pansexual people may refer to themselves as gender-blind, asserting that gender and sex are not determining factors in their romantic or sexual attraction to others.
Fair enough — each to his or her own.
Gender fluid required another check just to make certain of the term’s meaning.
denoting or relating to a person who does not identify themselves as having a fixed gender.
I don’t care if a person wants to identify with any of these terms as long as they don’t make any demands of me.
The sad fact is not one person, not one journalist even questioned, let alone criticized her assertion that for a long time she believed all men were evil, or the fact that even now, she thinks your chances of finding a dick that’s not a dick are remote.
Perhaps the odds would be about the same as finding a four-leaf clover or a red headed Nigerian.
Even the original caption under a photo of Cyrus said:
The singer and progressive activist Miley Cyrus came under fire for saying she once thought she “had to be” a lesbian because “all guys are evil.”
The ‘all guys are evil’ bit is so accepted it has become embedded into our society’s psyche as an unquestioned fact, a “given” much like “the sun rises in the east” or “death is inevitable”
Nobody even sees the shocking dismissal of one entire gender in those few words.
Miley quickly and predictably apologized and bowed before the wrath of the mob and wrote a hurried apology.
“Let me be clear,” she wrote on Instagram. “YOU don’t CHOOSE your sexuality. You are born as you are. It has always been my priority to protect the LGBTQ community I am a part of. Happy Monday!”
Got that? You don’t choose your sexuality. Forgive me for my transgression.
All men are evil and good dicks are hard to find? Now that should be enshrined in our constitution and taught in every classroom.
Keep in mind the fact that this woman has over one hundred million instagram followers. That’s a lot of influence. As one well known politician would say:
Sad. So sad.
