Another thoughtless vulgar post by another thoughtless vular man supported by an equally thoughtless women.
A "transaction"? You goddamn fool.
A pretty silly tirade. The analogy is a pretty correct one, because it describes what typically goes on. If you have ever lived in any kind of a society, you know full well that typically it's the men who do most of the work to convince the woman to get with him, and the woman does most of the evaluating. This is certainly true when it comes to beginning a sexual relationship; maybe less so when it comes to the commitment level. There is absolutely no room for disagreement on this, unless you have never been outside your home. And SINCE (not 'if') you have to agree with that much, there is no tenable logical disagreement with the rest. Like Artgurl, you can EMOTIONALLY disagree; that is, you can hate the fact of what I'm saying so much that you can't bring yourself to accept that there's a valid reason for the "double standard." But you can't provide any logic that supports an honest belief that what I'm saying is not true.
I started a thread on this topic a couple of years ago, and somebody (I think it was Huey) said that Montel Williams did an experiment similar to the example I gave. he had a guy go up to different women he didn't know and ask them to sleep with him. Montel had a woman do the same thing. The woman had takers, and the man didn't. So you can debase yourself by trying to call me all kinds of stupid names for pointing this stuff out, but you can't actually debate the truth of what I'm saying, because the truth of it really is clear. And since it's so clear, you can call me whatever names you wish. I didn't invent the dating process. And I didn't invent any of the ugly implications that flow from that process.
