Me and my gf, anyways
i read something really interesting the other day.
the idea that a promiscuous male is applauded by society, whereas a similarly sexually active female is vehemently decried, is obviously viciously unfair to females.
but the concept of the “slut” is actually more socially and emotionally damaging to males than they would think.
men often complain that they have an exceedingly hard time finding girls to, bluntly, have sex with them. it’s kind of the reason the porn industry exists.
but the same males turn around and victimize the few daring women who do choose to have sex with men.
the reason girls don’t want to have sex with us is that the minute they do, society brands them as inferior.
so we really can’t blame anyone except ourselves that the amount of attainable ass in this world is woefully inadequate.
I’ve never heard a man complain about not having enough women to have sex with. Not once.
See, this is the bullshit that just makes me mad. There IS no double standard, because society doesn’t look on men who have lots of sex as a good thing. The word “man-whore” exists for a reason, and I can remember in high school my group of friends making fun of all the man-whores in the school constantly.
Not only that, but society LOVES it when women go and sleep around, or just the idea of a promiscuous woman in general. They see it as “female empowerment” and “shucking the shackles society has put on you” or some other bullshit.
See, the thing is. If you’re gonna go and have sex with as many different man/women/whatever as you can, go ahead. But don’t deny you’re a whore. That’s like a smack addict denying they like smack. Just fucking admit it and take responsibility for your actions.
I feel so loved :’D
I love you all
except maybe the porn blogs
You all claim you want me to write intelligent essays. “Shane, we really love your talks on politics.” That’s a funny, almost sad analysis of what’s actually important to all of you. Because what gets travel on Tumblr is sensationalist, radical, character acting.
I have to step into a hyperbolic atmosphere and create content that makes you angry to even merit a response. I made a video two weeks ago that netted over 10,000 notes. I became “the guy that made the video” for a week solid. I got over 7,000 messages in one day alone. What am I supposed to do with that? Defend a position that I don’t even agree with? Inform all the minions that they’ve been duped? What am I supposed to say? “What should I do?” Fail in the fourth quarter and not win a championship even though I’m the greatest blogger here? (See what I did there?)
Because when I write about something I really care about, that really matters - no one reads it. You hate to read. You love to watch videos, listen to audio, or even take a look at infographics - but as soon as I ask you to read something… fuck, I might as well ask you to saw away at your own genitals with a Dremel.
You all are a perfect example of the sensationalist-culture we live in. If I write something moderate, fact-based and solution oriented, it’s just “boring”. However, when I do dramatic, CLEARLY hyperbolic attacks on such issues as teen eating disorders, depression, LGBT rights, rape etc - you all jump to defend your case. If you attacked your lying, manipulative politicians with such fervor, we’d really be getting somewhere.
The problem here isn’t me. I’m like Mr. Rogers playing in the Land of Make Believe. I can go back into reality. You’re the puppets. You’re stuck there.
and I don’t mean our garage. It’s a small business on main street that hasn’t been seeing that much attention from the towns youth, and they’re willing to let us practice/host small concerts there.
