The Roissy of the First Century

12 Jul

We’re proudly reactionary, maybe even sexist pigs here at Patriactionary, so we can say horrible, misogynist things like “women are naturally more nurturing.” This unchanging nature of the female half of the human race will get expressed as affection towards children and husbands in a society structured to channel their natural urges to socially constructive purposes. We do not live in such a society.

As Heartiste commenter Firepower once noted, “America has fallen into the abyss of tiny, yapping Paris Hilton dogs and the women who adore them.” This was in tune with Heartiste’s earlier reply to commenter Sofia:

i think small dogs pose interesting between ground. they’re yappy, narcissistic, prone to bite even their owners (and large dogs that could eat them in a single gulp). women who own small dogs – the paris hilton wannabes of the world – are the most insufferable.

women with small dogs < women with cats < women with dogs.

[Editor: Astute observation. Girls who like big dogs are keepers. Or dykes.]

Is the nurturing female nature a constant? It seems that Plutarch might have an answer, in the words of Caesar:

Caesar once, seeing some wealthy strangers at Rome, carrying up and down with them in their arms and bosoms young puppy-dogs and monkeys, embracing and making much of them, took occasion not unnaturally to ask whether the women in their country were not used to bear children; by that prince-like reprimand gravely reflecting upon persons who spend and lavish upon brute beasts that affection and kindness which nature has implanted in us to be bestowed on those of our own kind.

All Hail Caesar!

    Agree completely. The only women I loathe equally to them tiny-yappy-dog-owning ones, are those constantly on their iPhones / BlackBerries, no matter where they are, or what they’re doing.

    Doesn’t leave many left, does it? 😉

    The indignity that they treat their dogs. Humiliating them by dress-up. Makes bile rise through my throat.

    I note this tendency a lot in ghetto-level attention whores as well. And the popularity of “tea-cup” dogs is bizarre as well. It’s as if these microdogs emulate infants, and girls like that they are cute and less than life. It’s like a trivialization of sorts, like Disney.

    They do treat them like their babies, the way they’d treat their own babies: as accessories, complete with outfits to dress them up in. As a fashion statement, rather than a living creature.

    It’s the next step up from Barbie dolls. And a lot of these “girls” need to learn to manage their own finances/practical matters before trying to take care of a dog. They spread themselves too thin, don’t cook, ie, eat out all the time…and lament they don’t have enough money.

    Ha, brilliant! It would be better for them to just walk around with a Barbie doll attached to their purse; then they wouldn’t be treating a little dog they indeed likely have no idea how to care for as a prop.

    @infowarrior:

    I’d criticize, but there seems to be some consistent logic in it. I was reading about police brutality, about how the police would shoot unarmed civilians using SWAT teams. The man writing about it noticed that people generally did not care. But when he started writing about police shooting people’s DOGS, he got angry reactions from all sides, so he invited people to send in notifications of police shooting dogs; he now gets several per week. I guess in some sense the “right” agrees that hippies growing pot deserved their lead injections, and the “left” agrees that “gun nuts” deserve theirs, but no one agrees that the dogs deserve punishment.

    In the same way, if you have a neighbor whose barking dog drives you crazy, be careful, very careful. Dogs are more important than life.
