Bill Maher On Women And Men In American Culture

In this video of an old Bill Maher standup act, Maher is doing what he does best in being blunt.

I do not agree with everything he has to say in this video. I also do not “agree” with the negative, possibly hateful tone.

Let me write that again so my message gets across.

Maher’s message?

In the United States “the media” is engaged in a character assassination of men, in American culture men’s concerns are belittled, and men’s values are not given equal time.

  1. I love Bill. I think he gets picked on a lot for being misogynistic, but I also think he really is. I say this with love. He doesn’t mean to be, but he can’t help it. He has a point of view that comes from his head, and he is living as a man. Sometimes he says things, trying to be clear and honest, and they are shocking to some, and misunderstood by some. Sometimes he also just dares to say things very few others dare to. And a lot of what he says about men, religion and a lot of other things are true. I don’t always agree with everything he says (as you said, BW) but I do agree with most of it – and I defend his right to express his views. I think no matter what he says, he has thought it through as well as he can, and is gutsy enough to say it in an in-your-face way that gets his message across. That’s not something you can say about everyone. That they THINK about things and formulate their OWN view and then communicate it as clearly as they can. I always enjoy listening to what Bill has to say, even if I don’t always agree with it.

  2. Good point! Probably true! Thanks for posting it anyway. It was interesting to watch – Bill and I have seen him live, but this clip appears to be from quite a while ago (you can tell partly by how much hair he still has)! 🙂 So while I have heard him defend himself a number of times against accusations of being sexist (mostly on Real Time), I had never heard this particular routine.
