Stupid Male Species

  • I know this isn't in Vietnamese but i wrote it as part of my assignment. It's completely fictional...

    Is it too presumptuous for me to say that men are lying, hypocritical, lazy, pathetic, untrustworthy human beings? Maybe so, but could I be blamed when the only man in my life proved to be so disappointing? Especially when that man was my own beloved, father.

    Once, a long time ago it seems to me, I looked up to him. He was a loving, caring, sensible, admirable father. I felt safe and protected in his arms. For that reason he was my hero. Unlike other heroes, he doesn't possess super powers, nor did anything incredible. All he did was be himself. Like the perfect husband and father, I thought he was. But slowly through the years, a series of upsetting events unfolded before my eyes, each more discouraging than the next. He was failing, breaking, as I realize now, the naive image of what I thought he really was. These images embedded themselves in my mind, until one day, I realized that he was nothing but an act. He was a stranger, I know nothing more of him than any other man.

    Looking back, I was only in Prep at the time. A young, happy and carefree six year old. The school's annual tradition was to celebrate Father's Day by having fathers help the school children plant a tree. This seemed like a very important event to me. Screaming with joy, I excitedly told my mother about the event but with sympathetic eyes, she told me “of course father wouldn't be able to make it, he would be too busy at work”. All the excitement and anticipation I felt drained away. Leaving only disappointment. Suddenly, my dad entered the room and pinched my cheeks playfully. He told me to wipe the unhappiness off my face and promised he'd always be my protector. He said that he'd be there, just like my friend's fathers would be, at my school planting our tree. In his warm embrace, I felt secure and happy.

    I waited, watching my friends happily planting trees with their fathers. I looked at my own little tree, still in the pot. The leaves of this little tree had fallen due to my various attempts to pull it out of the pot. The first bell rang, recess went by and I didn't even run to the monkey bars. I decided to wait for him. Dad had promised he'd come. Dad had promised he'd be here for me. Only he never arrived. Everybody looked at me with pitiful eyes. I didn't like that. It seemed like evil monsters replaced my friends. I never felt such loneliness. I felt like I was an outcast. He LIED!! But that was only the first of the many disappointments my father orchestrated in my life.

    That was only my disappointment. When it came to love, my father’s betrayal was heartbreaking. Love. Relationship. Family. All built on the foundation of the same word. Trust. Trust is a virtue that I now, no longer associate with men. Was a cosy, loving family not enough to maintain the faithfulness of a husband? The door was closed to my parents bedroom, but I heard each and every single word. Mum had only been overseas for a month. Is a month all it takes for a man to forget the vow of love and fidelity he once pledged to his wife? Apparently so. Ten years later, I still cannot understand why my mother had ever forgiven my father. She accepted the fact that another woman was with him while she was away. The fact that my father broken the trust that mum had in him. Her devotion was only returned with betrayal. Perhaps in his grip, she could never have understood the true meaning of trust. Perhaps it was for the sake of her children. Nevertheless, I will never forgive him for his betrayal – of mum and of me.

    My father not only took away the life that I once knew and loved but also managed to destroy our family, losing everything over gambling. In my opinion he was skating on thin ice, especially after the affair. Gambling is a sin. As I've been told, it's also a pathetic human being who lets themselves becomes slaves to a "money eating machine". You work for the money, you put the money in the slot and it’s gone! It's like giving money away, only unlike charity work; you're not helping the homeless, nor finding a cure for a disease. How ironic is it though, that my father who taught me these lessons to be careful with money and not succumb to greed was the one who managed to lose all of our family’s fortune because of this 'sinful' and ugly addiction. Looking back, I keep thinking “what an idiot!” I wish that I had recorded everything he had said to me and played it back to him. How silly his advice would sound now. My father's gambling and lies in the end was what cost him his family.

    These tragic events in my life or rather, these constant roller coaster rides have caused me to detest this once beloved man, my father. At one time, I loved him for who he was. Now I hate all his attributes. His pride, his arrogance, his rigidity that is all marked in his male personality. When I see these qualities reflected in the male "race" I could only feel resentment. These negative images constantly flashes in my mind every time I begin to open up to a male; reminding me of my dreadful childhood. A sad, but lasting legacy left to me by my father. Will I ever change? Only time will tell. Till then, I have learnt about the person I don’t want to be and will strive to live a life filled with all the opposites imposed on me by my father. I will pave my own path forward.

  • I agreed with Duong Quạ We can't judge all of men. If only some are bad. It doens't mean that all men are bad. If I see one girl who is bad i won't say that all girls r like that.

  • I love my dad and I have nothing against men in general. This is only to portray a particular someone's point of view. I don't hate men. I agree that everyone is different.
