Repeat after me dude-bros.
It doesn’t matter if I am friends with strippers.
It doesn’t matter if I have dated strippers.
It doesn’t matter if I have been to clubs.
I have not been a stripper.
I do not get to make jokes about strippers.
And when a stripper calls me out for making a joke about…
^ Er Nurse
^ Funeral Director
^Works in management
^Mr & Mrs Claus
For all you tattoo bashers out there.
Tattoos don’t make the character. Learn people. Learn.
The previous generations really did a number on us when it comes to tattoos. They made us believe that tattoos are unprofessional and unsightly, when, really, tattoos and body art have existed through pretty much the entirety of human history. Tattoos, unless they are of an offensive nature, are not any more unprofessional than make-up, or jewelry, etc.
I remember one time I was asked by a friend who is a manager if she should hire a guy with tattoos. My first question to her was about how qualified the guy was for the position, and she explained he was very qualified.
Her: “If you went to a store to buy something, would it bother you if the person helping you had tattoos?”
Me: “As long as he does his job properly and helps me when I need it, he could be wearing a Halloween costume for all I care.”
bless this post.
Hopefully our generation will be the last to know this stigma.
Ethiopian girl guarded from gang rape & assault by three lions.
“The girl had been taken by seven men who wanted to force her to marry one of them. She was beaten repeatedly. Then the lions chased off her captors. The three lions guarded her for about half a day. They stood guard until we found her and then they just left her like a gift and went back into the forest.”
Then, Stuart Williams (the local wildlife ‘expert’) suggests that perhaps the lions mistook the 12 year old girl’s cries for a lion cub. Which seems awfully silly, considering that lions are perfectly capable of telling apart the gazelles they eat from their own cubs, aren’t they?
if fuckin lions know that rape is bad then so should you
I too was once a pin cushion, and I must say that being heavily tattooed is similar; the only real difference is that the stupid questions are slightly different.
Facial piercings Qs: “Did that hurt?” “How much did those cost?” “Can you go through a metal detector?”
Lotsa tattoos Qs; “Did that hurt?” “What do they mean?” “How much did those cost?” “Do guys like that?” “What about when you are old?”
One older gentleman asked me once, “What does your father think?” And I responded, “Since you aren’t my father I don’t think it concerns you.”
One older lady hugged me once in the grocery store, saying, “If I was young I would cover myself like a beautiful butterfly, you’re so lucky to be young.”
A lot of younger men and men my age seem to find it emasculating; I’ve gathered this because they either ignore me at the club, or tell me stories about the huge tattoos that they plan to get. *Sigh, I don’t care, dude*
In incredibly high end settings; jewelery shops, car lots, fine dining, etc, I’ve noticed a slight difference in the service, but that could also be because I am youngish. If their service is excellent or good, I will tip them well. If it is mediocre I will still tip them well, because I’m not a cheap-ass and I believe in doing better to everyone.
In college: some professors expressed surprised and delight at the good grades I received, others were well rounded enough to not notice or possibly consider that my aesthetic was not reflective of my intelligence.
Black, Hispanic and white gangster dudes love me, they think I’m down with their antics. (I’m not.)
First of all, men and women are different. We see sex differently; different hormones run through our biological systems. Nature needed different things from us, and programmed us differently to get what was needed. For millions of years, nature needed men to go from one woman to another, impregnating us as they went along in order to propagate the species. And women needed to settle down with the children, to nurture them so that they would grow into adulthood. Those impulses running through our systems for at least a few hundred thousand years turned man’s instinctive response after sex into “I gotta go,” while a woman’s still tends to be, “Let’s settle down.”
Therefore, it is incumbent upon wise men and women to take responsibility for the powerful impulses that sex brings up in all of us. Hormones are released into the body of a woman when she has had sex with a man, creating a chemical bond whether she wants that bond OR not. So it is definitely not a good idea to be hooked on someone who did not consciously, benevolently, and with FULL responsibility ask that you be. A man’s excitement in bed is great. But only a cold or foolish woman still thinks that that smile on his face when he sees that smile on yours is worth months or years of painful nights to follow. And yet that pain is bound to come, if his smile reflected the yearning of his body but not the yearning of his heart.
Most men will be pretty honest about this subject, if a woman has the nerve to ask him to be. Did the man tell you, “Our having sex means I will continue to call you?” Did the man tell you, “Our having sex means I won’t be having sex with other women?” Did the man tell you, “Our having sex means I am entering a sacred place with you, where trying to get to know you will be a dominant factor in my life?”
Women often avoid that particular conversation. “I didn’t want to ruin the magic of the moment.” Great. Now where’s the magic? “I didn’t want to pressure him.” What, he can have sex with you, BUT he shouldn’t have to answer any questions? “He said this was only casual, but the heat was so intense that night, I thought he didn’t mean it.” Darling, grow up! When sex isn’t magical, then sex shouldn’t happen. And when it is magical, its power shouldn’t be underestimated.
