It’s really not fun when you’re in the middle of a shower shaving your legs and the once hot water gets cold because the crazy high-speed winds outside decided its a good idea to fuck with your water heater.
Here is an excerpt from this bullshit excuse for an article:
"We live in a very strange world, a world where love is cursed by polygamy, sex has lost its value, and women have changed drastically. From once having morals and respect for themselves, girls are running around now with not a bit of dignity.
Sure, you can call it generation YOLO and women seizing the moment and just living life and having fun like they like to call it, but it just leaves me hoping I never end up with a daughter. Don’t get me wrong — I’m all about having fun: the quick sex, the quick thrill and the terrible Facebook photos that you get tagged in the next day, but there has to be some sort of a line.
For men, it’s great that these women have decided to become just like us. They’ve taken the male approach to sex and the way we treat the other gender. It is almost like they have become a mirror image of men in our love for a multitude of partners.”
This is the comment I left on the Facebook link:
I’m finding it difficult to understand why you think this is so well put…
I thought this article was honestly a bit ridiculous and I don’t understand the point as to why we need to gender stereotype the roles of men and women in terms of sex and pursuing sex.
By stating that women have taken “the male approach to sex” and that its almost “like they have become a mirror image of men in our love for a multitude of partner,” is so biased and I feel that women should not be shamed for having sex frequently. A woman can have all the sex she wants, be it with one partner or multiple partners, if it’s consensual and both partners have respect for one another, what’s the big deal? If men are supposedly doing it, I don’t see why a female should be shamed or judged for it either. Frankly, I consider that sexism.
What I’d really wish this article would address is how males have changed because of this “thirst for attention.” The fact that is article is only attacking the character of females makes it so one-sided. Sure, a large number of women choose to post provactive pictures of themselves via social media, so what? Maybe that makes her feel confident and sexy. How is men posting pictures in tank tops flexing biceps any different than a girl posting a picture showing off her best physical feature?
Ultimately, I guess it really comes down to what you define as a “good girl” and I suppose my definition strays extremely far from what this Preston Waters thinks.
Everytime we have a sleepover I want to write and post to tumblr all the mushy, adorable things we do together so everyone that follows me will know how mushy and adorable we are with each other. Because it’s just that darn cute.
But then again it doesn’t matter and I only want to keep these memories between me and you.
You know who you are and quite frankly I am tired of your SAPPY SELF.
Please go take your need to express your love for your significant other elsewhere and out of my lovely Tumblr feed.
Your sappiness has caused you to stray far from reality.
Sigh, or maybe I’m just the anti Cupid and believe that public displays of affection, or in this case, public expressions of your affection via Tumblr, are tacky and should be kept private or between you and your loved one.
There is only so much I can handle. An occasional expression of your love is normal. But this, oh this I can’t.
As for me, I love my boyfriend, but I rather tell him that than a bunch of people I don’t know on the Internet.
