Learning to live with the lies

For women, the Moon is a Harsh Mistress.

Nope, this one is not about politics, as the title would lead one to believe. It's probably best not to write from a personal position of semi-darkness - Peak Stupidity's job is to shed light. However, I just could not get any spirit up for that post on Chief Spreading Bull, aks Fauxahontas, or a review of a really strange-ass movie, or the next Environmental Stupidity post. There'll be time for some of that tomorrow, I'm pretty sure.

This is just a quick word to the wise any guy who could use to be a little wiser, on female problems. That doesn't mean problems in your dealings with females, but problems with females, inherently. No, it's not you; it's them. That is, at least for certain periods of the lunar calendar, if it's still OK to mention this sort of thing over the internet. As Peak Stupidity spent some time promoting our possibly unique (but, probably not) insights on the whole "running out of eggs" thing on, in Feminism 102 - Mother Nature expresses herself monthly, the female brain gets scrambled-up and overly-pickled on some chemical hormones at "certain" times. It is very hard for rational-thinking men to deal with the verbage that results.

There are some who possibly don't have a problem with hearing the ranting and raving about what he's been doing wrong and how she can't take this or that anymore. More power to them, in this respect, though I think these would be the guys who are just used to bullshit, giving and taking it. For those who like to take people at their word and try not to bullshit except when joking, it's very hard to get one's self to give up on that for a few days. You've got to, though, for your own sanity. Tuning out may or may not work, so just get your brain in gear that you are hearing a load of chemically-induced crap, not much different from the ravings of a 1960's liberal arts professor in the midst of an extra-dosage LSD trip, oh, except it's personal. The lies come at you, and you must realize they are lies. A couple of days later, your woman may even tell you that, yeah, she didn't mean any of it, i.e., yes, those serious problems you two were having and threats, and tears were just lies.

Then, somehow, you are supposed to get back to really listening and understanding a few days later. How can we take people like this seriously? It's kind of a drain on one's own sanity. Yeah, the best thing is to somehow get away at the appropriate times, as Peak Stupidity has discussed 14 months back. (Hey, I wonder it the dates work out to an exact multiple of 28? I would not be at all surprised.). From that old post:
It is something that many religious texts have discussed over the millennia. Proverb 25:24 of the Old Testament, for example says "It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house.". [King James Version]. Now, this must be taken in light of the times in which it was written. What I mean is, the roofs were flat back then. All the proverbs in the world aren't going to help you when you roll off a 50% slope and fall 10 ft to your death. Anyway, details, details ... modern interpretation could easily have us read "woman on the rag" for "brawling woman" and "man-cave" for "corner of a house top". That is the point, we men need plans for these 2-5 day periods to be completely away, but it must be constructive time for us too - we could be working on updates to blog software just as a random example.
Feminism has made these problems a lot worse on the men. An effort to just stay away by hanging out with the guys is not good enough anymore. You're supposed to sit around and take this, and make one bad move, and THE STATE may be called in to relieve you of your husbandry duties. The kids suffer, but you've got your duty to them. Like I wrote at the top, it can be a dark time. Just remember that the lies you're hearing are just that. Nobody holds a woman to her word, so don't make the mistake of trying. It always gets better.
