Men, Are Panties Worth Dying Over?
I recently received a comment to one of my hubs from a rather hysterical young chap ranting at women in general and blaming them for the fact that he felt held back in fashion (and presumably in life by,) these close minded women. Fair enough, I suppose, but he then went on to threaten suicide over the issue saying that he would be dead within the year and it was all because of bigoted women.
To him I say, grow up, grow some testicles and stop letting a perceived majority of women (because you can't possibly know what all women think about any issue,) spoil your life. Suicide is always an option, but personally I think it is best saved for when you're 80 and dying of painful terminal cancer, or perhaps if you've been caught behind enemy lines with information which could bring down the free world and you know you'll give it up under torture, or perhaps in the case of staying behind to plug a hole in a boat which is going down with your body, giving your fellow passengers time to escape.
Suicide is not the course of action to take because you think the world is against your dress choices. There are several proactive steps you can take before you go ahead and top yourself because they keep making lace trimmed bikinis in women's sizes.
Here's two of them.
- Wear lingerie as much as you want. Go ahead and do it. Believe it or not, there are plenty of happily married and otherwise partnered men who do so. If a woman rejects you because of it (and you know it is definitely because of the lingerie, not because you were whiny and passive aggressive,) then guess what, its her loss! There really are plenty of women in the sea.
- Consider that like attracts like. What sort of women are you associating with? Are you associating with immature, desperate to be fashionable, desperate to be liked young ladies (or older women.) If yes, time you grow yourself a new social circle. Mindy Mandykins might be nice enough when planning a pool party, but she's not going to be a fashion leader. She's an eternal follower and you, friend, are not. Go find your kin on the fashion fringe.
Finally, to address the writer specifically, if you're really going to kill yourself because you feel so bad about the world, then please seek help. Its not just about the panties and the bitchy women. Depression is a bigger bitch than any woman could be.
If, on the other hand, you're threatening the Internet women who I have to say, on average aren't the main readers of these articles, then not only are you wasting your time, but you're kind of a jerk. Suicide is serious, it rips apart families, destroys lives and is nearly always pointless. A permanent solution to a temporary problem, as my TV guru Dog the Bounty Hunter would say. Pretending to leverage your life for a bit of tolerance is not only pointless, but likely to inspire scorn from those you seek to persuade.
Live your life for you, not for the faceless masses who don't even know you exist.
