You Gave Me Your Kidney, Now Go F**k Yourself

Read my my latest post on BHB (Brooklyn Heights Blog) INCIDENT ON STATE STREET which was linked to gothamist.com.

OK, so this guy gave his wife his kidney in 2001. And now he wants it back but because he can't get it back, he wants 1.5 million dollars. Plus he's been sniffing her panties. He can tell she's had a lover. I don't know if this is true, but it's obvious the girl wants to move on. It's now 2009. The marriage is ovah. So he tells this to the press and now its an ongoing story in the Daily News (the link's not working, go to http://www.nydailynews.com/ and type in kidney) :)

Dude; heads up! She doesn't love you anymore. Nothing you can say or do is going to change that. She's not a piece of property that you own. She doesn't come attached to you with a price tag. See this is where your thinking gets a little hinky. In the old school version of marriage, a wife was a possession, an object. A wife was your legal property. You could love her, give her children, but you could also beat her, and steal her money. She belonged to you, and couldn't complain.

BUT! This is the 21st century. And we (woman) don't necessarily subscribe to the notion of being property. What with being able to vote, and making significant contributions in medicine, music, literature, politics, painting, education, cultural theory, and economics in addition to possessing the miraculous power of bearing children--- we tend to think of ourselves as autonomous. Subject, not object. Hate to break it to you.

So, it's time to pack in the macho routine. It's gotten old and we don't really admire that in men anymore. Be conciliatory. Be respectful to a woman who just doesn't love you anymore, and please cease and desist from dragging her through the mud. Are you man enough to do that?
