I was off sick the other day, and whilst sprawled feverishly on the sofa at death's door - oh okay, sat up with just a bit of a headache and a slightly sore throat - I was surfing around the TV Channels in a futile attempt to find something worth watching. I ended up on some Australian soap-opera I thought had ended years ago, called Neighbours.
For some masochistic reason I watched a few a few minutes of it, and caught a scene whereby some young woman stormed into her mother's house and said angrily to her mother:
"Men! Just when you think they're getting better, they do something stupid! It would be so much simpler if we just hated them."
Divorced mother evidently - and sneeringly - agreed with this declaration; it seemed the hatred of daughter was towards her father, for reasons I couldn't be arsed to figure out given that it would involve watching it for a few more hellish minutes.
I didn't bother getting pissed off about it. I know, I know, it's just another shitty Western TV programme, just another bit of misandry. It's just annoying that it's so tiresomely the norm for stuff that's 'family-friendly' to have female characters triumphantly spew hatred towards men whilst any man who criticises - nay, fails to worship - females in any such programme gets his comeuppance for such evil sexist attitudes.
Fuckin' TV. That'll teach me to turn the cunt on I guess.
