men dominates in hairdressing and fashion

30 Nov

london 7.06am 0.5C (ooh, it has been gradually going down from 1.1C since i woke up at about 6am. we might get to 0C ) wednesday 2016

i had been talking about my friend, the hairdresser, who had gone old but still going strong as a hairdresser to his female clients who have stuck to him for all these years. and i read this article in the dailymail just now about how woman love their hairdressers and stayed with them for 20-30yrs. of course u wont get all women to like men hairdressers, and there was one eg given, bel mooney, but majority of them seem to prefer men hairdressers.

such loyalty seems to be peculiarly exclusively female… don’t you think? i cannot imagine a man being so loyal to his barber . if we stay with that barber it is because he knows what we want and so we dont have to say it everytime we go to a haircut with him. maybe because men style is very straightforward and any barber should be able to replicate that whilst it seems women are more particular about how they want their hair done, so they stick to that someone who can do it the way they want. and women also likes to change styles, and they would like someone they trust who knows their mind to do that.

with us men, we expect any barber to know his job, and to cut our hair. most men’s styles are basic, anyway… at least when i look at the illustrations in the window of a barber shop, there seem to be only about what? 5 distinct styles? illustrated , if that. maybe even less. mine is always short (zero cut)back and sides.  and i think that is another thing about us men, i think we stick to one style and stay with it forever. unless our thinning hair forces us to change. haha. 

and the women did say they would not trust their hair to a female hairdresser.

it is strange now i come to think of it, that men seem to have dominated such a field as this. it’s a bit like designer fashion in clothes, men seem to dominate there too dressing women.

 added. 7.54am 0.7C. (it went down to 0.3C but has gone up now, and the sun is out so i guess we wont be seeing anything like minus 0C ).

saw another article by the daily mail about families bingeing on credit and getting into  debt. average debt per household is £7,300.

i am puzzled why they are getting agitated about that. granted,if u are that  individual who is in debt it is not a good thing for you, (but it is your choice to get into debt. no one is putting a gun to your head to spend spend spend, right?) but collectively the nation benefits from all this spending. the economy runs on this willingness by people in uk to borrow and spend.

so why is it a bad thing? i dont think it is a bad thing at all. i myself am thrifty but i know i am not the kind of person that makes a country prosperous… no, i would not like to have too many of me in the country. haha.

and we can see it in japan, where there are lots of people there who are like me, and that country is stagnating. in a way it is good, inflation is close to zero, and prices are stable and low. and there are no new businesses and so old businesses continue and hang around for years. and with the same old prices too.  quite comforting to an old person really because everything stays the same year in year out…and nothing changes in the village. but for the young it is a death knell. no jobs to be had at all. 

added 9.02am 4.1C sunny blue sky. saw this article in the guardian 

For instance, the tagging of cows for automatic milking machines, so that the cows can choose when to milk themselves. Cows went from being milked twice a day to being milked three to six times a day, which is great for the farm’s productivity and results in happier cows, but it’s also faintly disquieting that the technology makes clear to us the desires of cows – making them visible in ways they weren’t before.

very interesting. the cows were fed as well as being milked. so i wonder if that may be a big factor in getting them to go to the milking shed. it might be urge to relieve the full udder is not that compelling to the cow as wanting to get food. haha. there is a similarity to all those humans going to shops to buy things with their cards. the pleasure of acquiring things, might be equated with the pleasure of food in the cows.

penile festival

i have promised to put up a picture with every post, and i thought this one , one of 2, which was given to me as a house warming present will do. i have not photographed it before. i like the subject. interesting that the males are nude, not the women.

unlike nowadays when it is ok to depict nude women, but not men in pictures and art.

though i am reminded of the japanese festival of the penis that they celebrate every first sunday in april. the japanese have a refreshing attitude to the penis. actually india too has temples for worshiping the lingam. it is only in the west that it is not celebrated. at least not nowadays though from my greek picture, it was celebrated in ancient greece. and if we are to take the pompeii dildos and art discovered in the excavations as evidence, the romans seem at ease with it too.

see this, it is very eye opening. she is an anti-feminist pointing out what the world is coming to now with feminists  being so powerful in our society, esp in canadian (and american?) universities as well as over all in our society now.

that bit in file 3 about the vote … that is eye opening for me. that poor and working men did not get the vote.

feminists used the general and historical concern for women and used it. 

misusing the word harassment.

 i saw this article by daisy buchanan ‘i am tired of being kind to creepy men in order to stay safe’;.  in the guardian but did not read it.

but just recently i read this by mike buchanan, (no relation) titled daisy daisy, highlighting it amongst other things. and gave a link to the spectator article parodying daisy’s article. it is really funny. 

but having read daisy’s article, i find i agree with the spectator writer. the woman seem delusional, seeing harassment where there was none. at first i thought daisy was writing it tongue in cheek to show how women misuse the word , harassment, and to misconstrue behaviour and by that, they frighten themselves needlessly. but it seems she really believes these actions to be frightening. and that means many women are like her, seeing sinister things in quite ordinary actions. if widespread, it bodes ill for future men-women interactions. 

A call for a 50:50 quota for male and female medical students in Pakistan | Justice for Men & Boys

this is an increasingly common problem , not only in pakistan. it is also happening in uk. people might say pakistan has socially unique situations, being a muslim country and family comes first , but in uk, the female doctors are also leaving the profession to get married or wishing to do parttime.

it is not a problem due to culture but a problem innate in the women. they just dont like to work all their lives ( actually who would, haha. i think i would also give up work if i can find a husband who can earn enough for both of us; it is quite a logical wish, who wants to work all their lives when the husband can earn enough. and most of them do marry well, being doctors gives a huge boost to a woman’s marriage prospect.

if they can get married and have kids they prefer to stop work or do parttime.

it seems to me, women have the option to stop work and so no need to work for life;

unlike men, who are more career oriented because they have to be, no rich woman to pay for them.

here in uk there is not that muslim culture where women are expected to give up work to look after husband and children. (and from what i hear and read, the women in pakistan themselves dont mind and prefer it, rather than continue working. ) and yet it happens the same way in uk.

in uk none of that applies, but yet we are getting shortages of doctors because of women volunteering to leave the profession once they got married and have children.

for the university to ask that there is a 50;50 intake of medical students shows how desperate they feel the situation has become. so much money spent on the women doctors and they dont stick to it for life.

seems a lot of wasted money. not to mention the severe shortage of doctors even after all that money spent training them.

the uk laments that there is so many immigrants and foreigners (8million it seems) come to work here. but without them the country would not be able to function. in fact, one can argue that the uk is stealing all the trained people from other countries that need them , developing countries that can ill afford to have their trained people leaving the country to work abroad.

The Biggest Question of All: are you a Feminist, or are you Not?

26 Aug

The Biggest Question of All: are you a Feminist, or are you Not?.

most of those shouting for or against feminism have not defined what it is…

he says if u pick and chose , separating the good stuff from the bad, he says the good stuff will have allready be categorised elsewhere… and it is true when you think about it.

so does it mean the bad stuff is feminism? if so, does it mean feminism boils down to ‘we support other women, right or wrong’.

feminism is just ‘women should stick up for each other.  so nevermind the facts, between two views, and advantages, a feminist will side with the woman’s view, right or wrong does not matter’. that would be a clear and lucid definition of feminism.

but i find his questions are very pin point accurate in helping an undecided person get clearer on whether he supports feminism or not.

of course, we gay men, tend not to bother with it, and steer clear of the debate, as we think it is a straight men and women thing. is it rape or consent? for some obscure reason neither seem to get clear signals about consent. what is the matter with them?  that kind of thing. can’t they speak , and mean what they say?

or on divorcing, they are both fighting over the same cake, alimony, children, the dog, the house, etc… for which any sane gay man will avoid like the plague.

interestingly have i got it wrong or do i get the impression  gay women seem very closely involved with it. maybe i am wrong? am i?

actually if i were a gay woman, i would be well advised to get into it, and get involved.

why would it attract gay women? because if they want to increase their sphere of influence and see advantages for them it would be advantageous for them to have more feminism and clear the men from their world. they must dream of a world where they wont be pestered by men being around and taking up space. haha.

what is surprising to me is that malaysia have more women than men. it is one of the few countries that have more women than men. 93men to every 100women. singapore 99men to every 100women.

nepal, mexico, hongkong , sri lanka, ireland, are others with less men, that catch my attention.

though just because there  are more women than men, may not mean it is easier to find women for a straight guy. haha.

the uk has 104men to every 100women.

westminster 95women to every 100men.

london 75women to 100men. (this is a surprising figure to me)

speaking for myself, i find there are lots of gay guys in london but how much of that is due to so fewer women than men?

i think the ratio of men:women is not really very indicative of what is happening.

as usual , one should take statistics with a pinch of salt; the statistics dont mention how many men from the outlying areas comes into the city for their night life. nor how many of the women are lesbians. haha.

added. 23.3.15. i just now saw a tv program about india’s frontier railways, talking of the line that joins nepal to india and saying so many of the young men in nepal have gone abroad to work. nepal main export is its people. and i wonder whether all those countries where there are less men than women are ones that export its men.
