"Fun? Well Rather" The Diary of Virginia Clay McClure - part of the Sesquicentennial Stories Series

November 2, 1910

About two dozen girl went to see Ethel Barrymore.  “Babe” chaperoned one crowd, and “Shiny” one.  In our crowd were Jessie Milton, Irene, Ruth, Edna, Marry Pollet, “Shiny” and I.  She is almost the best actress I’ve seen, but I didn’t like the play.  It was a tragedy – her acting in the third act was grand.  I’ve now seen Maude Adams, Mrs. Leslie Carter, Lillian Russel, Henry James, and Ethel Barrymore.  “Peter,” says I, “Lie still; don’t wiggle.”

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
