The Dilbert creator wrote the post, called “Pegs and Holes,” on his personal blog.
The cartoonist wrote a blog musing:
Powerful men have been behaving badly, e.g. tweeting, raping, cheating, and being offensive to just about everyone in the entire world. The current view of such things is that the men are to blame for their own bad behavior. That seems right. Obviously we shouldn’t blame the victims.
But then he starts blaming society:
All I’m saying is that society has evolved to keep males in a state of continuous unfulfilled urges, more commonly known as unhappiness. No one planned it that way. Things just drifted in that direction … But in general, society is organized as a virtual prison for men’s natural desires.
Yes, Scott Adams believes it’s all society’s fault.
So, what are we going to do?
He writes, “Long term, I think science will come up with a drug that keeps men chemically castrated for as long as they are on it. It sounds bad, but I suspect that if a man loses his urge for sex, he also doesn’t miss it.”
