i mean i know my life experience is fairly limited, but i've literally never heard anyone say that ever
loads of people also say girls always want a 'bad boy'/alpha male blah blah blah
in conclusion: loads of people have no idea (but they like to generalise a lot) (like me now obv)
It's like saying 'i'm against racism' or something. Gotta be a bit more interesting than that.
which makes no sense because I'm an asshole and don't get girls ?!
I believe people should be allowed to do what they want with their own bodies, but i'd bet the majority of men would say they'd rather their girlfriends or wives didn't have hairy legs, and in return, i'd bet the majority of women would rather their boyfriends or husbands didn't wax their nethers.
Don't think it means either party isn't nice otherwise, or really warrants constant discussion about tedious stuff like female repression or gender roles.
if you believe that you don't think there's an obligation for women to shave their legs. you can prefer whatever you want, but there's no obligation.
glad we're on the same page!
And controlling the minutiae of your partners life choices is a womans job.
I don't think that's unreasonable. Imagine if your girlfriend just decided one day not to shave her legs anymore. How many people would be cool with that?
By no means do I think anyone ever has to have sex if they don't want to.
Sorry, that was a pretty unfortunate typo.
They've grown up knowing that they're not the best looking chaps, and have never really been intimate with a woman before. I can kinda see how a lot of them become bitter and misogynistic about it all.
between male fans of Tilly And The Wall and men who think doing certain things entitles them to intimacy
Actually got a bit of a fright when I looked down and saw who posted it - have no recollection of ever having seen Tilly & The Wall
I never saw them. In your face, dickheads!
why do you have the t-shirt?
so you don't have to burn your Gun Club records in shame or anything.
I for one am glad that it was.
It's like when a landslip reveals the ruins of a lost civilisation.
That was probably the most confusing 5 mins of my DiS life.
FIRST of all I couldn't figure out how you'd suddenly started talking about Tilly & the Wall out of nowhere.
THEN you linked to a thread where someone was talking about Tilly & the Wall, that turned out to be by me despite not remembering ever having had anything to do with them.
THEN I saw a recent post at the bottom of THAT thread by LBC mocking me for liking Tilly and the Wall, which I thought was from the same day. So I looked on the main music board, then the second page of the music board, but couldn't see any sign of it which was even more confusing. Reading your old posts is properly weird as well.
I was very disorientated and emotional by the end of all that.
It reads a lot like DarwinDude.
this is georgiabeth through and through
it would be all sloganeering in capital letters
I was wrong though, it was pretty nice!
Find it more daunting than the idea of approaching a lady
that's pretty awful then
One of them was the most horrifically judgemental arsehole I've ever come across in my life. I used to think of myself as a nice guy when I was younger too. Thinking back, I was a bitter, twisted prick.
I like this blog.
It's like cat_race only good
it's like they haven't considered that they could try just being normal around girls, there has to be some kind of over the top attitude
To be a negative? Why is being a friend of a girl such a silver medal? I mean I get if feelings aren't reciprocated it sucks and it hurts - but you get over it and move on right?
so most people are utterly desperate not to be
but once someone has made it clear they aren't interested, you may still harbour feelings or pine, which is natural, but moving on and accepting it is by far the healthiest option.
Guys like to use the term because it makes out that somehow the reason said woman isn't their girlfriend is because she's made a choice to reject them. Otherwise they'd have to face up to the cold hard facts of:
1) she doesn't fancy them and genuinely thinks they're a friend
2) they're actually not a 'nice guy' because they've built their entire relationship with her on pretending they just want to be friends when actually they want something more.
Not that I mean '2' to be quite as harsh as it reads. A don't mean to imply guy deliberately try to be 'friends' in the hope it'll go to something else: it's perfectly possible to fall for someone as a result of being friends, but you have to face up to what's happened rather than bitterly deciding you have no responsibilities here and working out what you should do to resolve things.
Also, from personal experience, being friends with a girl you fancy is fucking awful. If you've got friends already, this is the stupidest, most self defeating thing ever. Still, I guess most of us do it at some point or another.
(the language is pretty nsfw)
why is it so famous with you guys?
It's for the uncommitted foreverlones
Why is an online dating site popular with maladjusted, bed-wetting (no offence to people with genuine incontinence problems) internet nerds? No idea.
but gunners just explained its free, which might account for it.
yes because it's free and I've heard that it's neatly designed and easy to use.
She says she's met some really cool people on it - along with getting all of this kind of shit - and because the 'dating' side is the focus, you actually know if you'll get on with someone faster.
and now the 'thing' is this
for pyloric sphincter-typical privilege.
I'm a card-carrying member of the Sphincter Health Action Group and a famous campaigner for enuresis liberation.
i think it was/is popular because when it started it was mostly populated by cool people from the internet and it's free. compare to somewhere like plentoffish which is also free, but populated by normal boring people from worthing or telford. but i think it got taken over by match or some other online dating conglomerate, and everyone is on the internet, so it is actually now just part of the massive horrid mulch of real life.
Reminds me a bit of some of the feminism threads on here where people say stuff like 'why don't you treat all people with respect?! you fucking wanker!!!11'
(slow couple pre-Christmas days in the office, blow me)
equivalent to deciding that, say, no doesn't always mean no
the disrespect of calling someone a wanker isn't really equivalent to the disrespect involved in the issues that are the concern of feminism threads
if you are super upset about this stuff there's always reddit I suppose
as shooting fish in a barrel. Humiliating a group of lonely thickos slightly more so than they do themselves on a daily basis.
Personally, I do think the language you use when presenting yourself as someone trying to achieve a society of equality and respect is quite important
My query was over (slow couple pre-Christmas days in the office, blow me) as I don’t know what you’re on about….
I appreciate what you're saying, but wary given how often people will use the tone arguement to dismiss the voices of people getting a raw deal - "oh, I would engage with you on why you think you should be able to vote / marry / control what goes into or comes out of your lady front bum, but you're just being so SHRILL'
(all the rest was a pre-emptive up middle finger to a couple of people on here who'll rag me for not quitting DiS properly...)_
Is this a specific OKCupid term? Or am I completely out of touch with life?
Men blame women for it when it's their own damn fault for being all creepy around some chick they like. MEN eh?
