Dear Boys,

It’s been a while since I wrote a blog. Longer since I wrote one with any real, personal depth to it. This one however, resonates deeply in my soul. This one, is important.

A few weeks back I Tweeted an, at the time, glib comment. To quote myself: My goal for the second half of 2018 is to start casually talking about men the way they do about women, just to fuck with them. “The world would be so much more compassionate and nurturing if men were in charge.”

But posting that comment got me thinking. And thinking. And thinking some more. Because you see, I’ve come to understand that I really do believe the world would be better off with women in charge. And so I have decided to simply act as though that were the case. Be the change you want to see etc. So from this point on, my world is a Matriarchy. My world is one in which men are the ones frantically plucking hairs and moisturizing; lurching through summer in ridiculous shoes and clothing; cooking fabulous meals for the family and still finding time to maintain that beauty regime, and of course, asking very politely if they can have some pocket money for the week.

In my world, it’s silly to assume that men should have, or even want to have, positions of power at work. Silly to assume they can be in charge of a budget. Utterly ridiculous to assume they care about much other than looking nice and providing whatever sexual services their better halves have an urge for. In other words sweetness, in my world, men are now the 1950’s housewife stereotype, under the firm but (usually) kind leadership of a woman.

You all had your chance, you screwed it up. Now we’re trying something different. Get on board or exit stage left.

Love,
Charlotte

  1. I’ve always quietly felt that women were (by and large) simply more suited for positions of power, and that the world would be better off if it had happened to be Matriarchy rather than Patriarchy. If nothing else, just because of the violence male hormones promote. It’s something I refused to think about in depth as I’ve always been big into equality in all things. But yeah – I’m with you there, Mistress Charlotte. Well said.

    And those tweets are very refreshing!
