Being alive for 22 years and being a woman I think it’s safe to say that I have a little bit of knowledge regarding girls/ladies and some of their behavioral patterns. As a psychology student I find myself observing a lot and kind of making mental notes on some of the behaviors I’ve seen.
Here’s just a few of those behaviors and why I hate them so much.
**Note: this is not a personal attack towards anybody nor is it directed to anybody in particular. They’re merely my thoughts/opinions.
1. Girls, seriously need to chill out with their revealing photos. It’s not classy ladies, it’s more along the lines of trashy and desperate. Let me tell you something, when you put up a picture of yourself wearing almost close to nothing and your boobs/ass popping out then you’re going to get attention alright, but negative attention.
(Sidenote: No matter how much a girl tries to act as if she only wants a short term/uncommitted/laid back relationship, it’s BULL SHIT. EVERY GIRL, and i mean EVERY chick wants a guy who likes her for her and is generous (that’s not even getting into the marriage criteria).
The kind of attention you’re going to get when you put up pictures with your boobs about to pop out and your ass all over the place is the ‘I’D TAP THAT’ or ‘I’d have sex with her but would never see myself with her’ type attention. Do you really want that? Guys are guys, you can’t blame them-they’re going to always dick around with chicks who seem to be an easy target but at the end of the day they’re going to want to marry someone they can actually be with and talk to not just have sex with. **sidenote: when you put up skanky/slutty pictures then that kind of tells the world that you’re easy**
2. Where the hell has all the elegance and class gone? What has ever happened to ladies being classy not whores? You can still very much be sexy yet classy/sophisticated at the same time. Being trashy is not sexy ladies-it’s just…trashy and makes you seem desperate. Boost up your self-esteem and realize that sleeping with a bunch of guys should not be what you need to feel attractive/sexy. What you really need is to improve on your self-esteem and realize that it’s not always about what’s on the outside but rather what’s on the inside.
I’ve seen loads of beautiful women who have a great figure and super pretty but guys look at them and just think of how much they’d want to dick around with her because they know that even though they’re pretty on the outside they’re not that great of a person. If you’re beautiful on the inside then sure enough you’ll be just as radiant on the outside. (If a guy can’t see your true beauty for who you are, then you’re wasting your time with the wrong man..move on)
3. Instead of being vicious bitches towards each other, we should really be sticking together. Women suffer a lot in this world (not to sound like a feminist) but seriously, women are in danger of sexual assault, rape, sexual abuse etc etc. We should be helping each other out but instead we’re too busy being drama queens about such small issues. What is the big deal if some girl wears the same dress as you or gets the same hair cut as you a week later? BIG FUCKING DEAL—
Rumors are nasty little things-girls need to stop spreading rumors about other girls just because they’re: a) jealous b) hate them c) pissed because their boyfriend or ex has feelings for them d) all of which equal JEALOUSY
This really just shows that you’re too bored with your own life and are lame enough to butt into others and try to ruin it. Get over yourselves and do something with your life.
Now ladies, I’ve done quite a bit of bickering but it does not even come close to how much I have left to go on about. The point is, don’t try to become something you’re not for the wrong reasons. It’s possible that I may be wrong in some instances but could be that I am also right at the same time. Again, do not take this as a personal attack towards you but rather just an insight to how I see other women.
I know a good majority of people love watching reality tv shows, but I never understood why. It’s not as realistic as it claims to be honestly, most of that crap is so dramatized it’s border line pathetic.
I’ve chosen to pick reality tv as the artifact I will be studying this semester in my Lit class. Mainly because there’s such just so much to cover in reality tv due to the various categories of programs that a whole semester doesn’t even seem enough to cover it.
Reality tv sends so many messages to its viewers that sometimes it goes unnoticed or not even taken seriously. The kinds of messages some of these reality shows are so subtle yet so effective that I had to pick this as my artifact to expose how horrible some of this crap is.
For one, the show I have to say is the worst for Americans is Teen Mom & 16 and Pregnant- I’m not discriminating on teen moms but shows like these make it seem ‘appropriate’ for teens to get pregnant. I understand the show focuses on struggles and hard work on being a pregnant teen but it’s as if they’re encouraging teen pregnancies when they should really be encouraging safer sex-especially amongst teens. These kinds of shows make it seem like it’s okay to get pregnant at an early age and you can get on tv for it.
Why study reality tv? In every reality show are subtle messages that we should consider looking more closely into. We can avoid turning into something society wants us to turn into, or act the way OTHER people deem fit. Take a closer look into the over dramatized reality television shows you and especially your kids watch-studying it will help you prevent brain damage from watching crap like that.
It’s a fact, nobody truly enjoys being told how to think, how to act, how to do something and so forth but we do it anyway-just not knowingly in most cases. We’re constantly surrounding ourselves with popular culture. For those who don’t know, popular culture refers to:
everyday objects, actions, and events that influence people to believe and behave certain ways.
(source: Deanna Sellnow ‘The Rhetorical Power of Popular Culture’
They tell us what’s appropriate/inappropriate, good/bad, desirable/undesirable.
I’m taking a lit class and reading the first few chapter reading assignments as well as the lecture earlier today really grasped my interest. Not because I never knew that media as well as other things were very VERY subtly sending messages but because everything my professor as well as the book pointed out was how I felt-almost exactly.
Although, some of the examples in the book were things I already knew, there were some that I never really gave thought to, so as I was reading the text I was continuously ’OOOOOOO-ing’ and gasping with shock at some of stuff.
For example, all the crap shown in chick flicks is a bunch of bull shit in so many ways that it’s no wonder girls turn to those after bad days and bad breakups. They’re feel good movies, but if you take a careful look at some of them, it’s actually quite simple. I mean, where did the idea of eating a bowl of your favorite ice cream and watching your favorite chick flick in your favorite sweat pants even originate from AND how is it that SO MANY girls love doing it? It’s because they show girls in all these sappy movies get depressed over some random heart ache and resort to either shopping (another preferred method of therapy) or junk food with movies.
The chick flicks is just one thing-advertisements are just as bad. If you pay attention closely to commercials advertising cleaning products such as windex, vacuums, swiffer, pledge etc-it’s always WOMEN who are doing the cleaning in those commercials. I have yet to see a commercial where a man is demonstrating a certain product. That itself tells our society that it’s mainly women who should be doing the cleaning/housework-and this itself has been goin on for decades.
There are too many examples to ramble on about and for the sake of keeping some of my ideas for class I choose to keep my yap shut for the time being.
All I’ll say is this, take a careful look at what you watch and really look into what they’re REALLY trying to say. It’s amazing at the kind of stuff you come across.
Recently my best friend and loyal companion of almost 11 years passed away-Probably the best dog a person could ask for. He stood by my family’s side through all our hardships and through all our good memories. He was with us during our joys, our sorrows, our celebrations, and our losses.
Spartacus would be 11 on October 3 of this year-he died of old age; a heart that was failing, weak lungs which were affecting his lungs, and had lost the nerves in his back two legs. My sweetheart lived a long great life-I’m just glad he’s not in pain anymore and is in a better place.
Rest in piece darling, your family misses and loves you so much.
When the night has come, and the land is dark And the moon is the only light we will see No, I won’t be afraid, oh, I won’t be afraid Just as long as you stand, stand by me So darlin’, darlin’ stand by me Oh stand by me Oh stand, stand by me, stand by me
If the sky that we look upon should tumble and fall Or the mountain should crumble to the sea I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no, I won’t shed a tear Just as long as you stand, stand by me And darlin’, darlin’ stand by me Oh stand by me Whoa stand now, stand by me, stand by me
So true-society has difficulty being themselves because they’re scared to show who they truly are. Nobody’s perfect, it’s human nature to make mistakes-suck it up, grow some balls and act like yourself for once. Be who you are and be proud of who you are…
