Apparently, just by being men. There is no escape from this one.

A ‘sexist’ used to be someone who sneered at and despised the opposite sex just because of their gender. It soon became only applicable to men. Women hating men was just fine and dandy – but men hating women was not.
Well… it’s still not. I don’t want an equality where we all hate each other. It’s not OK to hate women – and not OK for women to hate men. Not based on their biological construction alone. Sure, some people deserve to be despised and hated but because of what they do, not because of who they are. And that has a much wider application than gender.
So now it seems that there is a ‘benevolent sexism’ of which I am a prime example. I hold doors open for women. I have never, not in nearly 55 years, hit a woman and if I see any man try, I’ll get in the way if I can’t hit him first. I am not unusual. Most of those my age and younger would do the same. We had the sad, cowardly and useless arses who beat women back then but they were rightly despised. Now they seem to be let off with a stern warning from a judge and community service. Soon those of us with protective rather than destructive tendencies will go to jail.
In the old days, some of those men didn’t get as far as court. They went to hospital instead. We aren’t allowed to do that any more.
If two women fight I won’t get in the way because when the girls go at it, it’s full berserker mode. Pull them apart but don’t ever get in between! They will rip you to bits to get at each other, and you (well, those of my age at least) are not allowed to hit back.
So any male instinct to protect women is now a sign of evil sexism. What a load of utter bollocks. It’s pure biology. Women produce children. Men don’t. If there is a disaster resulting in a need to repopulate, you don’t need many males of any species. What you need is a lot of females. They produce the next generation. Thay’s why ‘women and children first’ was always the cry on any sinking ship. That’s why wars were fought by men. We are more expendable than women.
Stop drooling about the disaster leading to a sudden majority of women at the back there, guys. I am talking biology here, not your ‘planet of the sexually deprived nymphos’ fantasy. It is a good one though, isn’t it 😉
It’s also true that males tend to be physically stronger than females in most species. Including ours. I was once stalemated by a woman in arm-wrestling but she was exceptional. And never mine. (I know you’re still speculating out there).
In general, women do not develop the muscle mass of men. There will always be exceptions but speaking of the species as a whole, it’s true. It is now sexist to want to protect women from other males, including serial rapists and woman-beaters.It is not sexist. It is biology. It is normal.
Any woman in my company is automatically under my protection. No matter whether there’s any relationship of any kind happening. You try to hurt her and you face an uinderdog’s teeth. That, I do not accept, is sexism. I consider it mere gentlemanly behaviour.
Now, if you ladies want to call me sexist for not letting anyone else rape or kill you, you just go ahead and call me that. Don’t bother to consider why you are still alive to do it. Just call me names. I don’t care. Biologically and morally, I have done my job.
Soon my generation will die out and then you’ll have genderless males who will stand by and cry while you are assaulted and killed. If that’s the world you want, good luck to you.
I don’t want to be part of it. And you, equality idiots, don’t want those like me in it.
So we are even.
