Kingdom Animalia

on

Humans think of ourselves as so different from other animals, but think about the behaviors and traits we consider “cool” in men — they’re all the most animalistic ones. Think about the traits and behaviors that most distinguish us from animals — they are considered specifically uncool, often effeminate. What does that say about us, I wonder? We believe ourselves to be the most superior species but denigrate everything that would make us so?

That’s an interesting connection, too — that our more evolved human traits are generally considered feminine, and the more basic animal traits masculine. Again, what does this say about us? It’s almost as though misogyny were some sort of evolutionary response to prevent continuing evolution.
