There’s a glitch in the masculinity matrix. It needs a make over. And a guy that plays an acoustic guitar for a living is just the man for the job. John Mayer was at a cancer benefit when he went way off topic to talk about another type of cancer, alpha males. Waving your big dick around and taking what you want is no longer the way to be according to Mayer. Verbally confirmed consensual cuddling and making women blow into a breathalyzer at the bar before they blow you is the future Mayer sees for men.
John Mayer wants to can the idea that men must be alpha males and take what they want — including women — and replace it with a new doctrine focused on respect and sensitivity.
The guitar-slinging crooner was doing a cancer benefit show Sunday night at the Modell Performing Arts Center in Baltimore when he went off on a tangent about toxic masculinity, which he called a “bulls**t” alpha male contract that’s nailed into boys’ heads from a young age.
He says the sentiment that a man should get an erection at the sight of every woman he wants is crap. John added the so-called “trauma” men might feel when a woman turns them down … is something men just have to get over.
His new idea on how to raise boys … teach ’em that the world isn’t theirs, and they’re not definitely not entitled to every woman. It’s worth noting this rant came right after John performed “Daughters.”
John Mayer dresses like the three fourths less cool Costco edition James Dean. He convinces women to sleep with him using the power of song. Your Body Is A Wonderland, by today’s male feminist standards, objectifies women, reducing them down to a sugary sex snack with lyrics like “candy lips and bubblegum tongue.” Who’s really the problem here? It’s almost like clockwork, Mayer probably has a MeToo coming his way and now he’s throwing an entire gender under the bus to cover his ass. James Franco was team #TimesUp until women told him to check his watch.
