Where The Girls Are, Ch. 3

This response is about not only Chapter 3 but about the book in general. I have a lot of respect for women. I have three older sisters and no brothers. Growing up with 4 women and 1 man, I learned a lot of respect for women and the way we should treat women. I agree that there should be equal rights to men and women no matter what race they are. I think if your looking to have equal rights for both male and female, why bash on men if you are a feminist? At the same time, why bash females if you are a male chauvinist? Douglas told of her and her friend's putting outside their window in huge letters: "The more I see of men, the more I like dogs." That was very low and disgusting because not all men are dogs and you can't categorize all men as dogs. Yes there are men that are. We have all seen bad things that men have done through the news or even people we know or have heard about, but there is no reason in going off about how men are dogs if you want equal rights. I just think that Douglas didn't think logically. I think that men and women or even saying women and men should have equal rights in everything and if you feel the same way, why bash either one of the sexes? Doesn't do any good.

  1. Men get a bad rap becasue of what the media portrays. I realized that after watching "Tough Guise." I don't agree that media completely influces what men do however. I think family has a huge impact but that is another can of worms. "The more I see of men, the more I like dogs," is a funny saying but it is just a saying. Men have terms and sayings they direct toward women but you can't take offense to it because there are great women and men out there and they dominate the bad ones.
