Un-neutered males

Cow means no disrespect to Doghouse, Lord Musgrove and His Supreme Highness Gorilla Bananas, much less to a certain author finding Hope and Whimsy.


By restricting the custom of neutering to dogs, cats, horses, etc., we are essentially crafting a world based on the view of un-neutered males.

A world where doing stuff is used to impress females (huge bridges, buildings, skyscrapers, unneeded dam projects) . A world where the males are always showing up bloodied and injured from fighting over territory. Where males have a short life-span because of their mate-attracting actions. A world with uncontrolled overpopulation.

Were human males neutered upon attaining adolescence, or after freezing some sperm so more children could be put upon a world already groaning from too many people (ooops, Cow's view).

Instead of a world where things are constantly torn down to build more roads, more buildings, bigger ships, faster planes, so men can impress women by doing stuff, driving stuff, flying stuff, building stuff...we might have a prettier world, a nicer world, a less-violent world, and a world a little less teeming with the most rapacious species and more friendly to other living denizens of the earth.

Okay, this world would be less fun for the women. Cow admits it. And less fun for the men. Okay. Okay.

Cow now returns you to your normal Topiary blog.

A eunuch society? I suspect they might be irritable and not very friendly to women. Better first take one as a lodger and see how it works out.

Cow is sorry, really.

Just a thought that passed through her mind as the vet droned on about the good effects of the little operation: stay home more, affectionate, no fighting....

Sorry to offend any of my male-or-gorilla-gendered honored readers!

All those castrati singing medleys from 'Annie' in thin, reedy voices on the bus into work...

Any male who's worked in a mostly-female workplace will know the utter futility of trying to do anything to try and impress women. Chocolate and red wine is our feeble way of begging not to be shredded alive in the girls' room conversation.

Skyscrapers and unneeded dam projects are just a way of trying to scrape up a little bit of self-esteem in the interim.
