    thats kinda vague, man.

    "contradict his shit?" so you want to write an essay about why its cool to be a dude?

    what course is this?

    And the stereotypes surrounding the ideal woman are so much better. Could you argue that our society in general has fucked up standards regardless of sex?


    and there is a good book by barbara ehrenreich "the hearts of men: american dreams and the flight from commitment" it goes over the history of masculinity in the united states.

    Sorry. The essay is titled "being a man" the very first paragraphs topic sentence is. "why i hate being a man".. so after that its pretty easy to figure out what the rest of the shits going to be like..

    I totally disagree with his arguments.. such as sterotypes men have and how he says they are true.. he never says that being a women would be better, but just how he hates being a man.

    Its intro to coll. writing and its an "argumentative essay".. so basically what i have to do is disagree with his arguments and quote other people who would agree with me that being a man is cool..

    what i need you to do is help me with quotes or other shit that will lengthen this baby to 3 pages.. (single spaced)

    im too lazy to do research for you, but what i would suggest might make it more simple for you is to "flow" his paper out.

    write down each of his points and look directly for a quote or research that goes against each individual point, be sure to cite it all. that way you can form a good argument to "contradict his shit" without leaving a bunch of holes. make it persuasive but factual.

    Not having to worry about sitting on a wet toilet seat in the middle of the night is pretty cool. How a guy can go from mr. sweet to talkin mad shit about a girl when she rejects him in public has always been one of my favorite things about being a guy. Beer bellies get a lot more respect on guys than people think. Thats all i got for right now.

    what are his reasons for hating being a man?

    kinda hard to give you arguments if we don't know exactly what we are arguing against.

    " i regard high school sports as a drug far worse than marijuana, and it is the reason that the average tennis champion is, say, an oaf"


    this essay was written in 85' so he says sopmething along the lines of for him chosing to be a writer makes him a "pussy"

    "nothing is more prisonlike than a boys camp"

    "the whole idea of being a man in america is pitiful. It's like having to wear an ill-fitting coat for ones entire life"
