Recently I saw a post on instagram that went like this.
I had to get this one off my chest.
That I say is a bunch of bullshit. If I had to guess, it was probably created and/or written and/or supported by women (duh!) who were physically less attractive, did not belong to the group of generally perceived “attractive” women, and are probably old and maybe even a fucking spinster that has gone past her expiry date.
Sorry was that sexist and offensive? Yes? Stop reading, unfollow and delete this blog link off your cache. Else don’t complain. Bitch.
I hate stats or phrases like this that only take the women’s POV (its always only the women’s POV cos men can’t be arsed to create support phrases like this – if they did, they’re gay or very metrosexual – think about it why!).
Anyway my bug with the original phrase is with the point about where statistics lie and that a woman is measured by things she cannot control. Dafuq? Honey, if you wanna be 36-24-34 or something proportionate you need to put that cake down and head to the gym. Don’t sit on your ass in front of your laptop looking for support on the net that agrees with you at that point in time (cos all women change their views once a month – true story!). Granted the boobs or ass is genetic, but having a slim figure is definitely in your own control. I am fat, medically obese and I know its my own fault for failure to control my diet. So there.
One of the most extreme terrorist of this phrase is actually women themselves, particularly, ridiculously beautiful women. They’ve always gotten things easy their entire life (they will deny it cos sometimes they really don’t realise it – thinking their brains got them where they are), either from men, who ogle and would let her walk over him like a puppy dog, or from other less beautiful women, who want to feel like their gorgeous counterparts and will try to fit-in in anyway possible. So don’t just blame men for this, women are just as guilty.
The other bit about statistics lying and measurement not in your control. Well this one really bugs me. Here’s a sample stat for you. I am a man who is poor, has bad credit rating, up to my necks with the banks, and is single. Which women will want to date me? No one! Why? Because I would be viewed as an “insecure” option. Women always say they want to feel secure with a man. Sometimes security costs money. Sometimes it IS money. Either way, if a woman can’t see you providing for her in some form or another, you ain’t getting laid. Am I in control of a woman being secure? Not technically or literally, cos its how she feels about you providing security. But is it in my control? No. Remember, its her feelings that count! Yet men are measured by this! There are also endless stats about men cheating on their partners and causing a divorce. Well what about the good men stats. None of it gets a mention. But in any argument, you can bet your ass your woman will pull out a stat about her girlfriends’ partner cheating on her and what not.
But shit woman, you just told me statistics lie didn’t ya? Or does it lie only for your convenience?
What I say in the end is that it is tit-for-tat. Why? Well because I want to provide that secure feeling for any woman. And in exchange, I’d like her to keep looking like a hot model (or as physically close to for the longest time possible). Remember, my level of security goes up as I age and earn more money, but ladies you are a depreciating asset. I say its a fair trade. I accept you can’t do it for long, but for that time which you are, I will learn to accept that person you are trying to be. Thats how it worked in the past, and thats how things will be in the future.
