Equal Opportunity

October 25, 2009 § 3 Comments

Excuse me, Yahoo?

It’s every woman’s worst relationship fear — that her man is cheating.

What, then, is a man’s worst relationship fear? That his penis will get “snipped off” in his sleep by his vengeful partner once she finds out?

We’ve all heard the statistic: half of all men cheat. And some experts say that number is even closer to three quarters. Could it be happening to you?

Well oh my goodness, men are that bad at controlling themselves? COULD it be happening to me?! Thanks for the helpful advice, Shine: Yahoo! Your female-targeting “service journalism” doesn’t make me paranoid at all! At least you’ve given me hope that it’s possible for cheating to help my relationship.

You know what these women’s websites [and, by extension, magazines] lack? A section dedicated to pictures of gorgeous, partially-undressed men. Dieting? Check. Parenting? Of course. Pecs and biceps? Only on gay websites.

I think one reason I like Kpop culture so much is that they have equal objectification. That doesn’t make it right, of course, but it’s certainly difficult to fight. On the other hand, I suppose it’s good that American women are not spending all of their time looking up pictures of naked men.

This isn’t necessarily a coherent blog entry, but I wonder if all men are attracted to the women that the mainstream puts up on pedestals. For example, there are many women who think John Mayer is basically the sexiest man alive, but he is completely ugly to me.
I had to buy the November issue of GQ for magazine editing class, and the cover stared me down uncomfortably. Would all straight men have a positive reaction to this picture? I wondered.

Not sure where all this is going. I simply don’t want to start on my massive pile of homework — I’d rather ogle my newest mini-obsession [he’s of age! I checked!] and think of Halloween costume ideas…

    Not sure what to say or where to start. I guess I will do some rambling of my own.

    In every single instance of cheating, there is not only the man who cheated, but the woman he cheated with. Yes, it takes two. Unless you feel cheated when your guy masturbates?

    There are men who cheat, and then there are men that will leave you altogether for the other woman. I’m not sure which is worse.

    God confronted me last week about cheating on Him with a girl. And I haven’t even touched her! Who am I kidding? Girls are a myth where I’m concerned! He confronted me about not only this, but all of my idolatries…

    The most prevalent type of male who won’t cheat on you is the whipped guy. He doesn’t qualify for the label of “man.” There’s also the good, strong man who will remain faithful to you, but he’s one of a dying breed. You’ll have to look hard for him.

    Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten my promise to help you find him, lol.

    Finally, no man is perfect. Relationships are about sharing life in spite of everything that is to be overcome – the flaws of people and the absurdity that is life. And that is by grace given to one another, provided by Christ.

    I don’t know where I was going with this. Business Law awaits, so I’m off.

    lol wtf. women cheat too… i dont know what the ratio is, but this shouldn’t be treated as a women’s issue.

    actually, ive been curious about the same thing–we always speak of mainstream media having a shaping effect on our culture’s perception of beauty, yet, I’d like to know how varied perceptions of beauty truly is between women and men…

    i think im going to start a study, i’ll keep you posted

    I guess have faith on God while choosing him/her is really important.
    Human deciding their own things. Well, you know the results on relationship might be cheating or just simply against God’s plan.
    Let God decide it for you! =)
