I Am Woman, Help Me Roar

Another wonderful posting from my old blog. Sadly, it's still applicable a year later.

After numerous annoying observations, I've come to a (not so shocking)hypothesis on social behavior: "Women like to be victims"

Now, before you start burning your bra and throwing away your Lady Bics and Nair, be a good girl and sit down and shut up -- just listen.

Women constantly exhibit behavior that leads them to be victimized. They either dress and act like sluts -- thus increasing their odds of being sexually molested and groped. They take on endeavors they know they can't execute -- changed a tire lately? -- therefore requiring them to whine for help. They feign phobic-related paralysis so others will come to their rescue -- kill the bug yourself!

Now, I realize that not all women are like this. But the ones who aren't are usually called Lesbians. Ok, there are "tom boys" too. But most enjoy being the victim, or at least being perceived that way.

However, the key insight is that they only do these stupid things when there is someone around or if they are in close proximity -- either physically or in time -- to someone to witness them being a victim. So if there's nobody to actually give them attention for the event, then they typically won't act like a victim -- they'll just suck it up and deal.

Ultimately, it's another means of getting attention. However, it's a self-depricating way of achieving such an immature end in the first place.

So what does all this mean? Why does it matter? Well, it matters when, as a group, you're striving to be independent and viewed as such. Sending conflicting messages to audiences never worked for anyone. It matters on an individual level as a means of personal development. The need for attention and certain tools used to fulfill that need are infantile. Growing beyond this mindset takes you one level further up Maslow's hierarchy.

Oh, and at the end of the day, I'm also just sick of it. I'm gay, bitch, I don't have any inclination to pay attention to you, so stop asking for it and move on to the next person with a penis. Thank you... :)
