Androgenous Thailand Photo the Future of the World
Take a look at these two photos of a girl in Thailand carrying an extremely heavy load of purified water bottles into the 7-11 convenience store on Khao San Road, in Bangkok, Thailand.
What do you think? I know what I think, never understand what the world thinks anymore...

A boy set up these stacks of bottles in the truck. There was two people, this girl and another boy of equal size loading up with these bottles of purified water to carry into the 7-11 store.
This is a lot of weight, and was the equal or same amount of bottles as the other boy making trips in and out of the store. There is no gender gap here, in fact the girl is doing more work and lifting more weight than the boy in the truck setting up these bottles in stacks ready for them to carry.
What happens to me when I see this, I think, then ask myself, what do I feel?
I wanted to help the girl, and berate the boys for allowing her to carry this much weight.
I am Indiana farmer stock to the core, I have trouble with this type of behavior on the planet earth, I know I am stronger than women, and stronger than most men. I have Testosterone, the steroid hormone in by body that allows me to gain muscles faster than women, we are not the same.
I have a back that is incredibly strong from baling hay commercially for 10 years of my youth, football, and a couple or years of concrete construction, I am strong.
However, this the new world we live in, I must accept that the majority of men have no desire or aspiration to be my opinion of men. My sister used a term I had never heard when I was home,
“Metro,” or maybe “Metrosexual.”
I forgot I could go look up this term in Wikipedia,org, the definitions is close to the way my sister defined it.
Metrosexual is a neologism generally applied to heterosexual men with a strong concern for their appearance, or whose lifestyles display attributes stereotypically seen among gay men. Metrosexualism is closely related to Dandyism. Debate surrounds the term's use as a theoretical signifier of gender deconstruction and its associations with consumerism. The word was coined as a tongue-in-cheek play on "heterosexual".
It is an amusing world, I always say, let us promote homosexuals,
“More girls for me.”
I sense, feel or believe the average male in the world has no feeling of being different from the females. I love women, this women carrying the bottles is more like a man, not a women. This culture is like 2x4 piece of lumber, they all look the same in the lumber yard, you have to really pay attention to they are different.
I try to accept the new world, I do not want to be part of this new world, I keep trying to find a way to pass around this Androgenous part of the planet, but the plane tickets are cheap in Thailand, the quality of life is cheap, it is in the center of Asia, a gateway to this area. I do not really care who is around me, I just do my thing, and the other people, often what I feel are deviants do theirs. I know I am becoming the deviant, I am not the normal, I think that men should be men, and women should be women.
The world is very gay friendly, I keep thinking there should be a term made for hotels that are hetersexual male friendly. In a way, West Africa is the closest to being Hetersexual male friendly place on the planet I have encountered.
Maybe the music groups the Beatles were right,
“Leave the West Behind.”
Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out
They leave the west behind
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout.

It is rough for a girl these days...I can't find a guy who is tougher than I am....it is a sad day when a man can't do a man's job and leaves his muscular woman to do the job...
I felt bad for this girl, because I feel the future is this. Men refuse to have any leiniency towards women by pure size dominance. However, I do have to admit Asian men and women are about the same size, not a lot of male hormone here.
Please do not hurt any men Mira.
As long as there are people like you (and me) who will open doors for women and help them do heavy tasks then the world is not lost.
In the USA there has been a lot of effort to water down the manliness of males, as if being a male is a bad thing. At the same time, women have been encouraged to be more like men. Women have always been stronget than men (child birth and raising, dealing with men...) but they do tend to have less upper body strength. This watering down of the difference of the two sexes is doing neither one any good. It would be better if we celebrated the differences and worked with them.
And I thought Metrosexual was a modification of the term Homesexual. Nothing against them, but if a man spends more time getting ready for a date than your average women, there is something wrong.
I suppose when the Metrosexual men come to Khao San Road, they are the one with those men who look like girls.
There is something in the photo that is more disturbing to me than the sex of the person carrying all those bottles.
Think about this: whether the person is a male or a female, it will have no environmental impact, either plus or minus, to the state of the world. What is making a difference is ALL THOSE PLASTIC BOTTLES.
If you want to get indignant about anything, get yourself stirred up about all the plastic bottles that are being trashed, burned, or sent out into the ocean to choke sea life.
That's just my two baht worth.
