but you are hot! What am I suppose to do?
White, Straight Male in a “Feminist’s” World
John Maszka

Once again, she ignores me—calling on everyone else, just not me.
She waits for someone else to speak…Anyone at all; as long as they’re female or gay or a different color than me. Even when she acknowledges me, she tells me to wait and then never allows me to speak.
I don’t know why I even try.
I’m invisible and yet still, she targets me with isolation.
She’s obviously very angry,
Her passive-aggression gives her away.
“Did you have your hand up?” She asks the others but never me.
“Do you have something to add?” Words I’ll never hear.
Not here anyway.
My opinion is not welcome.
My offense has nothing to do with what I’ve done, and everything to do with what I am.
I’m a white male—
And heterosexual too!
I might as well be a leper!
Ostracized by the “feminist” who claims to champion the unempowered;
but she uses her position of power to oppress and silence.
Her thin veil of hypocrisy, yellow like her teeth, barely conceals her cowardice.
Are you the “son of a Swan?”
or the abandoned offspring of a harpy?
The goddess Diana resents your name.
You preach about ethics, but look what you do.
You’re not a feminist, you’re a liar—and the worst kind…
Pretending to be a victim as you wipe the blood from your lips.
It so very, very, very hard being a white, straight, male in our society, living on the margins, in the shadows, as we must. No wonder we are all so angry all the time.
"Losing Season" is an awesome title. Yeah.
@2 - I'm sorry you don't like your ninth grade teacher. That must be very hard for you.
so so, sad so sad Paul.... right here next to the pot shot and the arson.

What the hell is the city gonna do now?

Please wait...
