I read several dozen stories a year from miserable, lonely guys who insist that women won’t come near them despite the fact that they are just the nicest guys in the world.
..I’m asking what do you offer? Are you smart? Funny? Interesting? Talented? Ambitious? Creative? OK, now what do you do to demonstrate those attributes to the world? Don’t say that you’re a nice guy — that’s the bare minimum.
“Well, I’m not sexist or racist or greedy or shallow or abusive! Not like those other douchebags!”
I’m sorry, I know that this is hard to hear, but if all you can do is list a bunch of faults you don’t have, then back the fuck away..
..Don’t complain about how girls fall for jerks; they fall for those jerks because those jerks have other things they can offer. “But I’m a great listener!” Are you? Because you’re willing to sit quietly in exchange for the chance to be in the proximity of a pretty girl (and spend every second imagining how soft her skin must be)? Well guess what, there’s another guy in her life who also knows how to do that, and he can play the guitar. Saying that you’re a nice guy is like a restaurant whose only selling point is that the food doesn’t make you sick. You’re like a new movie whose title is This Movie Is in English, and its tagline is “The actors are clearly visible”.”
David Foster Wallace was like, Art must be sincere! We must use every tool in the linguistic toolbox to cut through sentiment and dishonest cliche and build fresh ways to reveal the power and reality of unironized emotion.
And Mister Rogers was like, Basically the same thing, but without any shame or pretense or fear of sincerity.
ALSO FEMINISM ISNT JUST ABOUT WOMEN BEING EQUAL ITS LITERALLY ABOUT DESTROYING THE PATRIARCHY WHICH ALSO EXERTS NEGATIVE THINGS ON MEN (I.E. REPRESENTING THEM AS ANIMALS SO RAPE IS JUSTIFIED AND FORCING THEM TO BE THE BREADWINNERS AND THROWING SHADE ON MEN WHO CHOOSE TO TAKE A DIFFERENT PATH IN LIFE AND DICTATING WHAT “A MAN” SHOULD BE, ETC.) SO NO NOT ALL FEMINISTS ARE CRAZY MAN HATERS AND MEN HAVE A PLACE IN FEMINISM TOO!!!!!!!!!!! WOW PLEASE
I FUCKING FIGURED IT OUT
THE ‘THE’ IS SIDEWAYS, RIGHT?
BECAUSE YOU READ THE THE WITH ALL THREE OF THE PHRASES
‘IMAGINE THE SKY’
‘HOW IS THE SKY’
‘TOUCH THE SKY’
IT’S STILL FUCKING STUPID BUT I FIGURED IT THE FUCK OUT
YOU ARE A FUCKING GOD AMONG MEN.
Spotted: An extremely oppressed brown woman skating her way to Oppressedville.
Let me tell you about this oppressed girl though, she started her own international Hijab company online called Vela Scarves.
Marwa Atik was born and raised in the California to Syrian parents. Her passion for the veil (hijab), combined with her eye for fashion and design expertise, is apparent in her exclusive creations. Vela was born in 2009, when Marwa simply began incorporating her favorite accents, such as ruffles and zippers, into otherwise bland veils and advertising via word of mouth. Marwa also extended her creativity to designing actual techniques of how to wear the veils, based on their respective designs and style.
In 2010, Marwa and her sister, Tasneem Atik Sabri, partnered to officially launch their company and website to bring beautiful, elegant, and affordable veils to women globally.
And just because someone does not express emotions the same way you do doesn’t make them any less human than you are.
