PB: Oh, so it’s ok when you say “sissy”.
Jason: Who adheres to perfect speech codes? Of course it’s hypocrisy!
But I’m not bashing gays – I’m bashing people too chicken to create better music.
You all can use this word sissy all you want, but I think it is ridiculous. Maybe you come from a different culture than I do, but in my culture, sissy is only used to describe boys and preferably to describe effeminate boys who act like homosexual men.
All other uses of it seem odd. And it seems weird to call grown men sissies. If you want to say they aren’t masculine enough, that’s fine, but there’s a number of other words I would use for the simple reason that we are talking about men here and not boys.
To be completely honest, when we straight men call other men sissies, we are not talking about gay men. We leave them out of it. We are attacking other straight men’s masculinity for a variety of reasons.
We are “policing masculinity,” and as long as this does not get out of hand, I think it’s a good idea. I’ve been way too pussy myself at various times in my life, and that behavior was not ok. I don’t care what happens to me in the future, I am never going to lower myself to that level of submissiveness.
However, if a cop or some dangerous person is menacing me, I might just go totally pussy and submissive to keep him for hurting or killing me. There’s times when pussing out to the max is the best strategy if you want to stay alive in one piece.
But men, really. Knock off the pussy bullshit. Just don’t even go there. No matter how devastated, down, destroyed, ruined, deranged, or pushed to the edge you get, don’t go total pussy. There’s other and much better ways to show your complete surrender to life than that.
Personally, I prefer to take a sedative drug if one is around and head to the bed, get under the covers, and sleep as long as I can. It’s pathetic to escape from the world like that, but it’s ok to be pathetic. I just think if you are going to be pathetic, you should do so in certain ways that make it look a bit more respectable and masculine.
When you’re hiding under the covers and sleeping your life away, you’re still a man. When you get that soft, high-pitched girly voice that says you are defeated and surrendering, you’re not a man anymore. You’re an object of contempt and derision.
