look at this fragile delicate flower of a man look at how precarious his value and identity is wonder at the marvel that is masculinity
This makes me want to cry blood.
This is a prime example of patriarchy at work. He can’t handle holding a fucking purse for 2 fucking seconds before he has to bust out his “man bag” so he can feel validated by his male peers who are rooting him on for not wanting to be feminine. Is his ego and sense of masculinity so fragile he can’t possibly brush it with the slightest amount of femininity before he crashes and burns??
Not to mention the fact that a symbol of feminity is being equated to a literal piece of shit.
or maybe he just doesn’t want to hold a fucking purse? god fucking damn it.
You’re right. We shouldn’t for anything in the world ever think about why he wouldn’t want to hold a purse, why he would feel it’s reasonable to drop it like it’s radioactive and then treat it both like toxic waste and a shameful secret, or why an audience of men would applaud him for treating it in this way instead of just holding the thing his wife asked him to hold.
Masculinity is too fragile to withstand investigation. We must protect it at all costs.
After watching it loop fifty times I cannot unsee it as a CSI robot being observed by a group of engineers and handlers, and they are just beyond smug about how successfully they have programmed the unit to not only treat the entire world as evidence to be collected, but to visually emote the satisfaction it would seem to have from initiating protocol 4. That guy on the right is almost in tears wishing he could see the world though that robot’s optic sensors.
A) Her purse is small enough that it probably doesnt impede the shopping experience and I doubt she would just thrust it at him as if its his job to carry it.
B) If any guy decides to just drop a purse on the ground and treat it as if its the same as picking up waste from a dog, he deserves a quick and swift “suddenly single” deportation.
C) If he doesn’t want to hold the fucking purse, use your fucking words instead of acting like an overdramatic alpha arrogant asshole.
