all of the things the world would miss if there were no men ... for better and for worse

What Would the World Be Like Without Men? 

Men – what would the world be like without them? 

Well, let's see ... for starters ... the world probably wouldn't be
fighting many wars without men; the world would probably only have two 
X rated movie theatres, and those would both be showing Julia Roberts 
movies; road rage would only involve spats over parking spaces at the 
mall; ESPN would be out of business; television commercials on Sundays 
would only be about feminine hygiene products and not about tires and 
beer; towels would never have to be refolded and dishes never 
repositioned in the dish drainer; beer joints would become “cocktail 
lounges”; all gas stations would be full service; the best stock 
investment in the world would be quick change oil places; the sports 
page would only have tennis results; we would only need red tees on a 
golf course; sports arenas would become giant flea markets; and no one 
would be afraid to ask for directions. 

We'd never have wet tee shirt contests, or beer drinking battles, or
Chuck Norris movies; dirty socks and underwear would find themselves in 
a clothes hamper without gentle prodding; Martha Stewart would be the 
President; no one would have heard of Monica Lewinsky; the expression 
“pissing contest” would take on a whole new meaning; Friday Night 
Fights would involve the discount rack at Macys; Playboy magazine WOULD 
be bought only for the articles; hardware stores would have one aisle 
for tools and 28 aisles for window accessories; urinal manufacturers 
would go out of business; and so would Budweiser, Michelin and Doritos. 

High school football would become soccer and games would be held on
Saturday mornings, just before the sales at Victoria's Secrets started 
– and then the only thing on sale would be cotton bloomers; no one 
would giggle at a douche commercial; waitresses would always receive a 
25% tip; the sounds of passing gas wouldn't be as prevalent, or as 
loud; TV remotes would have three buttons; VCRs would come with one 
page of instructions instead of 30; soap operas would be on during 
prime time; workout gyms would be replaced by health spas; and a “wolf 
whistle” would mean something else entirely. 

There would be no more Beer Nuts, pork rinds, drive through liquor
stores, barber shops, strip clubs, NASCAR events, cyber sex, 
laundromats, gun manufacturers, auto parts stores, condom dispensers in 
gas stations, porn sites on the internet, congressional hearings on the 
definition of sex, $200 tennis shoe manufacturers, arguments about 
whether Steven Segal could kick Bruce Lee's butt, or long lines at 
women's rest rooms. 

Yes, the world would be a totally different place without men. 

But, then, without men, the world wouldn't have ... 

Kids learning to tie their shoe laces while mom cooks dinner; big
brothers; shoulders for women to cry on; true soul mates; someone to 
carry six bags of groceries all at once; mowed lawns on Saturday 
mornings; speeches about “when I was your age” that always end in a hug 
from dad; quiet sniffles during sad movies; the gentle sound of snoring 
during golf matches on TV; compliments for “the best dinner you've ever 
made”; doors opened; cars washed; grease spots in the garage where dad 
tried to fix the Buick, just to save the family some money; strong 
hands holding on to children at cross walks; hand me down tennis shoes; 
father and son pancake dinners; those little fingers painted on a paper 
plate that Billy brings home from school; and scraped knees that need a 
kiss only mom can give. 

There wouldn't be any “wait until your father gets home”; no more back
scratches for women in “just the right spot”; boxes brought down from 
the top shelf without a ladder; compliments said out of ear shot that 
make a woman's day; coffee served in bed; kisses for no reason when you 
least expect them; hugs, too; strong hands rubbing a woman's feet after 
a long day; knowing that “my dad can beat your dad”; children looking 
into the stands to see dad's face after they scored their very first 
basket; fathers hugging THEIR fathers, and not being embarrassed about 
it; Mother's Day gifts that include a shoe box and a frog; and no more 
“go ask your mom”. 

Yes, the world would be a different place without men.  Would it be a
better place?  Probably not.
