Naturligvis???

Der er en amerikansk tegneserie om Dilbert, en hyggelig lille mand, der arbejder på et kontor.

Dilberts skaber hedder Scott Adams, og han har en blog. I går skrev han dette som reaktion på bl.a. den seneste tids sager, hvor Dominique Strauss-Kahn og andre mildt sagt er blevet kompromitteret:

No doubt you have noticed an alarming trend in the news. Powerful men have been behaving badly, e.g. tweeting, raping, cheating, and being offensive to just about everyone in the entire world. The current view of such things is that the men are to blame for their own bad behavior. That seems right. Obviously we shouldn’t blame the victims. I think we all agree on that point. Blame and shame are society’s tools for keeping things under control.

The part that interests me is that society is organized in such a way that the natural instincts of men are shameful and criminal while the natural instincts of women are mostly legal and acceptable. In other words, men are born as round pegs in a society full of square holes. Whose fault is that? Do you blame the baby who didn’t ask to be born male? Or do you blame the society that brought him into the world, all round-pegged and turgid, and said, “Here’s your square hole”?

Tak for kaffe! (sagde jeg, der er tedrikker). Jeg troede, det hørte fortiden til at hævde, at seksuelle overgreb er en “del af mænds natur” og derfor er “uundgåelige”. Og her stod det så igen. Til alt held tager bl.a. den amerikanske biolog PZ Myers (han har også en blog) til genmæle. Scott Adams’ indlæg har da også fået 1119 “dislikes” (inklusive min).
