You may have heard the line, “I hate to see you go, but I love to watch you leave.” It was made popular by country singer Trace Adkins in his 2005 hit song, “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk.”
Love Trace Adkins. Big, hulking, unapologetically conservative country star. What’s not to love?
Back then, the song seemed harmless enough. But were it to be released today, it would be an entirely different story. The video would be seen as pure objectification of women. And now, in this climate, people would undoubtedly begin looking into Adkins’ background for potential abuse of women – not to mention the writers of the song, Dallas Davidson, Randy Houser and Jamey Johnson.
It used to be that only those like the feminazi crowd would get upset over such a benign little quip. They would claim that it’s not funny – that it’s just rude and sexist, and demeaning and blah, blah, blah. It may be all of those things, but it’s also a fact.
Despite the best efforts of the left to feminize all of society, men are still men and women are still women. At least most are – and thanks heavens for that. Most men still appreciate “watching women leave,” as it were.
And there’s not a darn thing wrong with that. It’s what initially attracts us to one another. It’s how relationships begin and how families are started. There would be few children in America if everyone looked and acted like Gloria Steinem, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi or Lena Dunham. It may sound harsh, but that too is a fact. If you can’t accept the natural attraction of members of the opposite sex, blame God.
Unfortunately, a relatively small, but growing, handful of dirt bags and predators are ruining it for the rest of us hetero-good-guys.
