人不如狗

(Through Rose-Coloured Glasses)

澳洲最近有份研究報告, 對家犬與野狗 (dingo) 作一比較, 發覺在獨立思考與解決問題的範圍内, 家犬的智力較低。其原因是人對家犬的馴化 (domestication) 所致。家犬能領悟到主人的命令和手勢 (身體語言), 是進化的過程, 巳是先天具来的。它們依頼主人才能生存, 所以不需要很多求生的伎能, 只要馴馴服服, 就能安享一生了。這就是做狗的現實, 為進化而退化。又何樂而不為呢。

照理来説, 其於人也亦然。這也是住家男人所面對的現實。

“太太, 我的車匙 / 眼鏡 / 大衣在那呀?”

“開飯末呀?”

“喂, 亞女幾號電話?”

住家男人, 一切都有靠山。倚頼成性, 結果就產生了 CBC 的真人秀節目, “The Week The Women Went”。節目的題材很簡單, 每season片集, 選加拿大的一個小鎮, 把鎮上全部女仕們, 離鎮放假一星期, 所有男仕留下来, 做其名符其實的住家男人, 打理全部家務, 洗衫煑飯, 照顧孩子。這片集巳放映到第二season , 結論都是, 男人支持女仕不足, 馴化不够。

我又有點不明白? 同樣是”倚頼成性”的 domestication現象, 家犬就是進化過程的退化, 是acceptable的。但對住家男人来説, 卻是末盡全力, 仍需努力。

真是人不如狗了;-)

    Reality:

    The world is still largely a patriarchal society. Women are more conditioned to be “domesticated” than men, as “boys are boys”. The modern “domesticated” family man is an illusion…with few exceptions, where the woman is a dominant matriarch. Whose intelligence is higher in general, man or woman?

    Your illustration shows the dog as a playmate, not an obedient helper for special tasks, which require decision-making.
