Sorry for not blogging for a while. I was sick and had nothing to say. Well, other than whining a bit.
But one thing that kept me amused for a bit was watching the double standard, alive and well, on social networks.
It all started with me sharing a post on Google Plus about a gorgeous convict who’s mug shot went viral. His name is Jeremy Meeks. Google it if you don’t know.
I was amused at the comments left on the City of Stockton’s Facebook page. I thought the women were hysterical and funny.
The next thing I know, my character is being questioned because I found a man attractive and sexy. Suddenly there was something wrong with my friends and I who liked looking at his picture. Apparently, we weren’t supposed to like his looks because of his past.
Talk about a double standard! Holy shit! My jaw dropped a few times.
Some men attempted to start a rumor that he was gay. Jealously was rearing its ugly head and little did I know, this would go on for days.
Each slam from a man amused me. My friends and I fought back and only the stupid males tried to persist. They were a great snack for my friends and I.
I see half-naked women in my stream all day long. I am subjected to the crude and juvenile men who spend their days disrespecting women and making derogatory remarks about them. The few times I was stupid enough to say anything, I was called a prude, bitch and jealous.
Now suddenly, the tables are turned and many men don’t like it. Many felt is was their place to criticize me. Quite a few went on and on that he was a convicted felon.
To those men, I say this: WE DON’T FUCKING CARE!
No need to lecture us, or tell us how we should think or be. Save that for your own life. Maybe this is why some of you don’t get laid or can’t get a date. We women are free to do what we want, say what we want and we don’t need anyone’s approval.
I’ve never asked for approval and I never will. If a woman’s admiration for a beautiful man bothers you, then that’s your problem.
We don’t care about his past anymore than you do about a woman’s past when you post her picture. I would never question it. But I do think less of men who do that. Sorry, but you lose my respect when that’s all you seem to do.
And you wonder why some of us don’t want to talk to you. We are tired of the judgment in your eyes and actions.
And for the men who aren’t like that?
I’ve always loved you.
