The Weakest of the Great Men of All Time

Me.

A few years back, I was getting complacent. I was a successful entrepreneur, in the top 1% for my age. Whenever I compared myself to people similar to me, it wasn't even close. I worked more, accomplished more, produced more, did more meaningful things, was traveling the world. I read more books, did more writing, was generally healthier and more disciplined, spent my time well. I was the top 1% for my age, and even better than that if you measured me against people from similar backgrounds.

I think it's easy for people who are doing great to get complacent. You look at the general sloth and laziness and complacency of most people, you see that you're achieving greatly, and you feel like you're so far above that. You give yourself a pat on the back. "Ah, yes, I'm doing great!"

I had a shift. I don't remember the exact day, but one day I thought to myself -

"I'm not going to compare myself against people my age any more. I'm going to start comparing myself to the greatest men of all time."

I'm a woman and I'm not a feminist

On The Naughty Ostrich

Feminism is all the rage right now. If you are, you will be adorned and loved and if you're not then you'll be disgraced, shamed, shunned and eventually crucified ( think I'm exaggerating? I don't think so).

I'm not a feminist and proud that I'm not. You see feminism demands equality with men. As women we do so much more than men to be treated equally. As for respect we deserve more of that too. So the reason why I'm not a feminist is because I believe I deserve much more than to be treated equally as an asshole of a man at my work place and more respect from everybody especially men.

So before you go all campaigning for equality have a moment of self reflection to see your worth. If this is your ambition then I'm here to tell you that you have no ambition at all. Nor are you probably worth any respect from the opposite sex. Men are either our fathers who see us struggle, our brothers who are aware of our struggles, our significant other who know we struggle and our sons who we raise. They all know that we deserve more so settling for anything less is ripping out women's backbones everywhere.

Raise your standards ladies. And remember, to demand respect you must have self respect. Let's all treat each other right and stop degrading cat fights and back stabbing.. That's the job of Hollywood and politicians.
