My response to: The Lost Boys rant

I’m not sure how I wound up following this blog, but I’m rather glad I am. I’m feeling a little waspish at the moment–even though I *know* we shouldn’t be feeding the duality fire, I do enjoy being a voice of opposition when people are so obviously wrong.

Marriagecoach1’s assertion that the media is to blame for “reverse sexism” against men is laughable.  According to Media Report to Women,

Television: In the 2010-11 prime-time television season, women accounted for 25% of all creators, executive producers, producers, directors, writers, editors, and directors of photography working on situation comedies, dramas, and reality programs airing on the broadcast networks. By role, women comprised 18% of creators, 22% of executive producers, 37% of producers, 15% of writers, 11% of directors, 20% of editors, and 4% of directors of photography. (Martha Lauzen, Boxed In, Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film, San Diego State University)

Feature films: In 2010, women comprised 16% of all directors, executive producers, producers, writers, cinematographers, and editors working on the top 250 domestic grossing films. This represents a decline of 1 percentage points from 1998 and is even with 2009 figures. By role, women accounted for 7% of directors, 10% of writers, 15% of executive producers, 24% of producers, 18% of editors, and 2% of cinematographers. (Martha Lauzen, Celluloid Ceiling, Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film, San Diego State University)

So, Marriagecoach1, all this media harassment of men you claim?  It’s probably coming from the 75-94% of men dominating the entertainment media industry.  Hmmm….is that reverse-reverse-reverse sexism????

I was heavily quoted in this piece about women’s sexism. Here is the note I received stating that the magazine article was now posted. He also referred to my new book to be published in January

John,

Thank you again for your willingness to talk about the media perception of men. We have developed that story and do have it online. You will receive an email from Burgundy but I wanted to personally send you the link. Thank you again for your wonderful input (http://www.burgundymag.com/index.php/health/wellness/415-media-perception). It was greatly appreciated.

In My Quest for Universal Domination…

For years, I’ve been making a list of things I’m going to do when I finally become Ruler of All Things. It’s a tough job, but I think I would be right for the job. I’m a people person, I learn quickly, and I’m really motivated to do a good job. It’s occurred to me that I might not be as far along my path towards becoming Empress of the Universe as I’d hoped I would be in my 40s. I’ve decided to do a bit of reflection and take stock of my situation.

First, I can’t blame anyone for my lack of utter power and control. Blame is a pointless thing, especially when directed at somebody. How many times have I blamed others for my fears, failures, inadequecies, and insecurities? Even worse, how often have I blamed myself? Seriously, does blame ever work? Ever? So I think one of the new policies I will put in place for my campaign is “No Blame EVAH.” When something goes wrong–that’s just how things are–there will be no period of blame allowed. Not even a short one. Blame takes energy away from finding solutions, and that is just a waste of resources.

Secondly, I need to narrow my goal into bite-sized chunks. As nice as “Become Supreme Empress of the Universe” looks on a 5 Year Plan, it really is too broad a goal to be reasonable. So, how about this–I focus on some of the basic goals on my way to Supreme Power. Become financially stable. Improve my health. Get my career in gear. Each of these things will get me nearer to my ultimate goal–the house, the car, the fate of worlds in my hands…

Finally, I need to be kind to myself. I realize that Alexander the Great was like, 20, when he ruled the Known World. Good for him. Great for him. But I am not Alexander the Great, or Elizabeth I, or Perez Hilton, and my quest for domination of the hearts and minds of all will not follow the same paths as theirs did. I must blaze my own trail, in my own way. And I must be gentle with myself when it doesn’t happen as quickly or as dramatically as I had hoped.

I will indeed become Empress of All Things, simply because it’s the right thing to do. But in the meantime, I’m going to take it easy, enjoy myself, and let things happen as they do. Until next time,

Namaste,

Deb
