Due to patriarchy all men are exactly the same. Some might be slightly more human and less broken and damaged than others. But this fact means that there is no such thing as a "good man." Men are all the same in their attitudes towards women, though some are less severe than others.

So the "nice guy," ... the good guy... are all male fabricated myths that women keep alive to maintain hope of finding a man worthy of marriage and partnership should be eliminated. The myth of the good man and nice guy needs to die. There are no good men, just some men who decided not to lord their maleness and masculinity over women. However, all men hold the views and values that having an education and a job with benefits is enough to make a woman pick him over other men.

This focus on materialism makes men believe that all women can be bought with a price or that women are gold diggers. In reality, these beliefs are exhibitions of male supremacy and sexism.  Do you agree? Call in to share your views with our special guest, womanist blogger Lucretia Pierce at 347-327-9215.
