Dear Man: It really perturbed me.
Dear Woman: “Perturbed?” What an odd word.
Dear Man: Well, I didn’t want to use “mad” or “angry.” I was looking for a softer term and I came up with perturbed.
Dear Woman: So, what perturbed you?
Dear Man: I was listening to some pundit on television talk about sexual politics.
Dear Woman: Sexual politics… I don’t hear that much anymore.
Dear Man: No. because we’ve taken it for granted. Now we call it gender wars, battle of the sexes…
Dear Woman: And the reason it upset you?
Dear Man: Not everything is politics. Not everything is a struggle for power and money. There are so many lies, I wouldn’t know where to begin.
Dear Woman: And if you did begin, you wouldn’t be able to finish because sexual politics is big business. Billions of dollars are made every year in television, movies, books and seminars, keeping the conflict going, so there is a lot at stake to keep men and women at odds.
Dear Man: So you’re saying that in a battle for power and money, we pretend that there’s a battle for power and money.
Dear Woman: Basically. Here’s how I know. The truth is, women don’t get along any better with women than they do men, and men don’t get along better with men than they do women. Women vie for place and men kill each other in war.
Dear Man: Wow. I hadn’t thought of that. Actually, the human beings that get along best are men and women, because they do succeed in procreating and raising families.
Dear Woman: Sometimes. But when you add the dimension of politics, then it’s kind of like men become the Republicans and women are the Democrats.
Dear Man: I see what you mean. In other words, men are the level-headed pragmatists and women are the “feely-good” liberals.
Dear Woman: Exactly. So what I think needs to be done…
Dear Man: Let me step in here and tell you what I think. I believe we need to call it out every time we see it. Every time that smirk comes across the face of a man, or a woman takes on the profile of bitching and complaining about a male problem, we should step in and say that if men and women can’t get along, the human race is doomed.
Dear Woman: Well, of course it is. If 50% of the people are fighting 50% of the people, you have a 0% chance of survival. But keep in mind, this applies to civil rights, too.
Dear Man: What do you mean?
Dear Woman: There’s money to be made in civil rights. Keeping black people agitated and white people pumped up with a sense of superiority generates huge donations to causes and eliminates the common sense of finding things we share.
Dear Man: So do you think it’s sinister?
Dear Woman: No, I think it’s greedy. If you’re a comedian making millions of dollars off of sexual politics, why would you repent and try to find another way to make millions of dollars?
Dear Man: So without a quiet revolution which gradually makes prejudice taboo, we will live in an ignited atmosphere of sexual politics, which feathers the nest of those odd birds who want to make a living off of the struggle for more power and more money.
Dear Woman: Exactly. That’s why the most important thing to remember is that we have a human problem, not a gender problem. We have a human problem, not a race problem. We have a human problem, not a cultural problem. And we have a human problem, not battles between nations.
Dear Man: Sounds impossible.
Dear Woman: It does, doesn’t it? Of course, we could take the first step. You and I can agree.
