Frigid Women = Victims

Filed under: Uncategorized — Pete @ 9:05 pm

So here’s another “boo-hoo, women” article. This one focuses on how, when a man doesn’t want to have sex with his girlfriend, he’s denying her something. He’s the one to blame, he’s the stupid one, he’s the closet homosexual, he’s the creepy pervert. All because he would rather choke the chicken than do his girlfriend. She is of course, morally pure as the driven snow (sound familiar?) and has no blame in this whatsoever. Oh poor victim. I can hear the sound of a thousand keyboards firing up to denigrate the guy, how he must be such a loser, how they will show her a better time, whatever.

Read on…

The Web: Just another way to avoid sex, friends

By Helen A.S. Popkin

So here’s a story you’ve heard before, or at least some version of it. If it didn’t happen to a friend, you may very well be the protagonist of such a tale. This one I’m fixin’ to share comes straight from the mouth of a formerly-Internet naïve friend who, just a few years ago while closing in on the ripe age of 30, lost her boyfriend-since-high school to the wicked world of Internet Sex.

FYI: I’m not talking about me. Fortunately I’m not so unfortunate to have the same loser boyfriend from high school. Also, my mind’s been in the gutter way too long to not have heard this train coming down the track.

So, there’s this couple from high school and they go to college and then on to grownup working life together and monogamously. As is easily predicted, things got super dull in the bedroom. And the living room. And the kitchen. And anywhere else they tried to zest up their premarital bliss.

Instead of doing the safe and sane thing by breaking up and moving on, The Boyfriend moved to the burgeoning world of Online Porn, dragging his Good, Giving and Game Girlfriend (as insightful, hilarious sex advice columnist Dan Savage would describe her) with him. After awhile, however, the GGG Girlfriend wasn’t enough. On his own, the Boyfriend discovered chat rooms, which then progressed to video chat rooms.

Video chat rooms then progressed to the GGG Girlfriends 28th birthday which she spent alone in their bedroom while the Boyfriend (per usual by now) sat up all night in the living room in front of the monitor with his pants around his ankles, if you catch my meaning.

Did I mention that the GGG Girlfriend was still pretty much as cute and pleasant as she was in high school when they first hooked up? Not that it matters, as is totally explained in the recently-released poll results from advertising agency JWT which states that Americans are giving up friends and sex for Web life.

While anecdotal evidence like my poor GGG Girlfriend and The Boyfriend abound, you kind of have to wonder at the reliability of such a poll. According to the results, “More than a quarter of respondents — or 28 percent — admitted spending less time socializing face-to-face with peers because of the amount of time they spend online.” However, that doesn’t take into account hanging out with friends online through such exceedingly popular social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook.

More importantly, however, it doesn’t seem to define Sex, and as Bill Clinton taught us, Sex means different things to different people. Internet Sex, via downloadable porn, chat rooms, or Second Life, may be the closest the phobic and shy ever get to the so-called “real thing.” Meanwhile others, like the aforementioned Boyfriend, find the virtual version of “It” more fulfilling that the real thing waiting in the bedroom.

Other seemingly-important information imparted by this survey states that out of the 1,011 adults polled regarding the amount of time they would feel OK without going on the Web, 15 percent said they could do it for just a day or less. Twenty-one  percent said a couple of days and another 19 percent said a few days. Only a fifth of those who took part in an online survey said they could go for a week. (Probably the same people still on AOL dialup, LOL).

That’s all very well and interesting, I suppose. But despite the suspect sciencey-goodness of such a poll, didn’t you pretty much know in your heart that the above was true? We love the Internet. Just like we used to love TV … long, long ago, before the Internet started making TV obsolete.

Meanwhile, if you’ve got the patience to search through microfiche, no doubt you’ll dig up an old alarmist news report from some other sort of suspect poll that states something along the lines of people giving up real friends and sex for “I Love Lucy.” You’ll probably also find such overarching statements about giving up same for marijuana. Or jazz. Or fire.

Whatever version of society-destroying evil you happened to scan on the microfiche viewer, there’d be an element of truth. Because, hey, all the above, like the Internet, are distractions. And as humans, we actively seek out distractions. Because when life isn’t painful, it’s often painfully dull.

So viva la distraction, or whatever. Just like the Boyfriend of GGG Girlfriend would’ve have been a perverted jerk even if Al Gore never invented binary code or whatever. If it wasn’t the Internet, we’d find some other reason to avoid our friends and sex.  

So when do these bitches get off acting as though they’re God’s gift to mankind? “Real thing waiting in the bedroom” my ass. Its all about her, and sometimes even I would rather take care of business myself than to get her all aroused and lubed up, then make sure she comes first, and finally cuddle afterwards.

  1. Of course there is absolutely NO mention of her even trying to spice it up either. It’s all HIS fault.

    Bullshit.

    More likely she’s a bit prudish and he’s tired of the same old same old missionary position/no blow jobs “real thing.”

    OR he’s just an idiot internet addict. In which case, why is she STILL with him? She has no one to blame but herself here. If this is the case, methinks she stays with him so she can have a nice, convenient excuse to play the victim to bitch to all of her friends about, so she can bask in the wondrous attention that comes from attaining the glorious “victim” status women aspire to nowadays.

  2. Exactly Hawaiian. Seen alone, this article is nothing to get worked up about. But when you take it as yet another misandric article from the mainstream media, you see its significance.

  3. So the boyfriend is immediately a looser? In my opinion, the woman who stays with the man under the given circumstances is a looser.

    and then, also, if a man does not want you then, he does not want you, big deal?

    After getting rejected in bed for three, four weeks, every night, I quit trying… Two weeks after that she made a move on me, in form of, “how was your day” and touching my shoulder… Being rejected so long, I took this as another blabbering to please the woman, so gave a short answer and fell asleep…

    Next day I was accused of rejecting her brutally, not wanting to have sex with her, not caring about her sexual fulfillment, etc etc… No amount of explaining helped, and I also got to hear that it is normal for her not to want sex, because she is tired and I am not being close….

    That was the day I quit listening..

  4. ze german: If she’s a wife of yours then rape her: it is your marital right to do so.

  5. Yeah, if the roles were reversed, like say that the guy wants sex but the chick didn’t he would be seen as pressuring her into it and stuff.

    I still think that if he is jerking off to some other chick, or whatever, on the internet he’s a jerk.

    If this bits true, “GGG Girlfriends 28th birthday which she spent alone in their bedroom while the Boyfriend (per usual by now) sat up all night in the living room in front of the monitor with his pants around his ankles, if you catch my meaning.”, He’s even more off an asshole.

    This isn’t to say that I don’t notice the overwhelming bias in the article. It’s just I still think he’s is a jerk.

  6. s.c., that is exactly the point – the media always finds cases like this to bolster its man-hating position. Like Anon said – taken alone, this article is fine. But when you zoom out a bit and see the forest, you realize its a problem because men are always the monsters and women are always the victims.
