I hate men. I can’t abide them even now and then.

Not all men, mind you.

I’m not taking part in THAT stereotype of the fat, hairy-legged, man-hating, humorless feminist today.

Even though I happen to be a fat feminist with hairy legs who has just titled a blog post “I hate men”.

I am not, however, entirely humorless.

Ha. Ha. (See?)


Having said that, however, let us consider misogynist bullying men who think they own the world and women with it. Them, I HATE. Include in this category my manager and his manager. And my step-father. And no, I don’t care to go into further details.

On the other hand, in the category of ‘Men whom I don’t hate” my partner John tops the list. (Got that, sweetie? You are wheat, they are chaff? xx oo).

And I LOVE this performance of I Hate Men from Kiss Me Kate.

    I have to admit that I hate Howard Keel, the lead in Kiss Me Kate, although primarily for his annoying, sexist role in Annie Get Your Gun. That movie was so unbelievably insulting to both Annie Oakley and Frank Butler.

    The 1953 movie of Kiss Me Kate isn’t the best thing to judge this musical by. Howard Keel does a Howard Keel act, by which I mean that he plays the same character in every movie and belts out loud songs semi-operatically. Far better to see it live.

    And I’m no Howard Keel fan either. If Annie Get Your Gun was sexist, what about Seven Brides for Seven Brothers?

    When I saw the headline I knew you were referring to one of my favorite musical scenes of all time! I agree it’s better live, but I also love this movie.

    Isn’t it lovely when a humourless patriarch turns up to slap us humourless feminists down?

    Oh, of course speaking out against the misogyny I encounter day to day is evidence that I think women rule the world.

    No honey, I just believe that its about time men realised how privileged their maleness makes them and stop thoughtlessly enacting sexism.
