no.. it kind of just means 'i'm single, but sick of relationships and just want to have fun.'
THANK. YOU. whenever i get into debates with my mum about it she's always like "WHAT?! ARE YOU GAY OR SOMETHING!?" it's like, no? i just want everyone to be free. fuck off.
And please don't misunderstand that I think men are scum. I do not; I have guy friends and I love my father and my brother to pieces. Not to mention some of my favorite celebrities/idols are men. I'm simply addressing the fact that some men tend to expect so much out of a girl, that she actually changes her life for it. Plastic surgery, cosmetics, weightloss.. women tend to do these things in a misguided attempt to attract men, and the sad thing is is that it actually works..
That being said, men are not fully to blame here. It's not only a mixture of pressure from the opposite sex as well as societies standards, but a failure on the part of women as well. Girls shouldn't complain about having to alter themselves if they are going to follow through and do it anyway. "Shaving sucks! I hate that I have to do it" Then don't shave if you don't want to. No one is forcing you to. The only way men will be able to accept the real you is if you do as well.
Okay, I've said my peace. Sorry for the novel y'all.
..or all of the above?
@Joe_Larson that's fine if YOU feel that way about sex, but that does not mean everyone else should feel obliged to think the same way. Some feel that sex is less of an emotional thing and more of a physical one- something that we as human beings do instictively. Just because they have different beliefs they should not be told by complete strangers that they're doing something wrong.
Both bad and good dreams can be unpleasant. That's why I like neutral dreams the best- the weird ones featuring people you barley know and fruits with odd functions.
someone try to steal your things? bust a cap for that.
I don't think giving money value can be considered a societal norm, though. At least, not one that compares to everyday behavior. Money exists so we can sell/buy goods and services in an efficient way. Even if we didn't have the paper money that we currently do we would still have some sort of item(s) that we'd give higher value to. It's through earning money that we as people can get what we want. I don't think people are just 'following the status quo' when they accept money- it's simple logic. Money helps you get the things you want, so why wouldn't you take it?
If someone really wanted to they could do anything to anyone at any given point in time. I don't care what gender you are, being shot in the face in probably gonna be more painful than cramps, childbirth, and a kick to the balls combined. OP's point was that the latter is much easier to avoid and rarely happens.
i'm going to flip shit if they leave out anything, i swear.
The right to marry. Legalizing gay marriage is not just about a piece of paper but everything that comes with it; the benefits (tax and otherwise), the title, the religious freedom, and perhaps most importantly- a legal documentation of a relationship that is recognized by the state as a legitimate relationship. Many believe that marriage is a more 'legitimate' status than a civil union (probably because it comes with benefits, has a more prominent ceremony, etc), and when a gay couple is given the right to marry, they are put on the same level as everyone else- saying they aren't allowed to marry is basically saying their relationship is somehow less legitimate because it's not 'worthy' of true marital status. And I realize that not everyone against homosexual marriage is a religious freak- my comparison relating to Christianity wasn't trying to focus on the religious aspect, but the personal beliefs in general. Although, I don't like how you said 'supporters for the family unit'.. it makes it seem like you're implying homosexual couples/those who aren't married are incapable of having a good, functioning family.
They also think we're all stupid and uneducated...
It's the taste of disappointment.
