Humorous photo manips from HBO's amazing "Game of Thrones" series, the occasional screensaver and maybe even some artwork, just for your viewing enjoyment.
So we were discussing the more annoying entitled dickhead complaints about women and broke them all down to code for “Virgin”
“I Want A Natural Girl” - In other words a girl who doesn’t wear a lot of makeup or heels or any clothes judged to be ‘skanky’. Mostly because the guy doesn’t want her to spend precious time getting dressed up when she could be paying attention to his boner. Of course, she will be expected to be “naturally beautiful” at all times regardless.
“I Want A Clean Girl” - In other words: Virgin. He doesn’t want a girl with any chance of disease so he can not bother with a condom. Because Boner.
“I Want A Nice Girl” - In other words a girl who has no opinions of her own, no experience to know when he is acting like an asshole. A girl who will never question or argue with him because he can’t handle a relationship with a person who he cannot dominate. Thus is also fetishized as a “shy” girl, because sexualizing social anxiety as a desirable trait in order to have a partner you can push around and isolate isn’t creepy at all.
“I Want An Old-Fashioned Girl” - Again, code for “virgin”. He wants a woman who has no basis for comparison and thus cannot be dissatisfied with his sexual performance or compare him to other males, which he cannot tolerate. “Old-fashioned” is also code for “subservient” as this kind of guy looks back to earlier eras when women and minorities were systemically oppressed as a kind of lost Golden Age. Ten bucks they also watch period shows like Mad Men and wish the world was still unabashedly sexist and racist.
When you think about it, all these criteria could be best met by a typical 10-year-old: no makeup, no diseases, virginal, inexperienced and easy to dominate. Of course, they’d want a 10 year-old with giant breasts, which I suppose explains the appeal of anime girls.
UGH, I wish this weren’t as true as it is.
depressing as FUCK, but accurate. ._.
*shy but actually a sex freak*

When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.
It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
And guys wonder why I laugh in their faces when they say that ‘it’s just as hard for guys to date’
