Political Correctness and "Low Self-Esteem"
I'll readily admit that I haven't received nearly as much shit for this blog as I thought I would. Since the word "ass" is in the title I think most reasonable people take it with more than a few grains of salt. Every once in a while, however, the P.C. police will beat me like I'm Rodney King; not just here, but in 'real life' as well.

I've been told more than once to stop using the word "deaf"; that "hearing impaired" is more sensitive. Bullshit. There is nothing demeaning about the word "deaf". It is a word that describes someone who can't hear a fucking thing. A yuppie jogging along listening to his i-pod is hearing impaired. A guy who can't hear a rape whistle being blown in his ear is deaf.

People who can't talk used to be referred to as "dumb". This IS a demeaning term and I don't use it. See the difference? Some people can't. They're the "dumb" ones, and unfortunately are quite capable of speech.

As I read some of my favorite blogs, both familiar and brand new, it occurred to me that political correctness has stopped short of protecting single women who dare to be sexually active. The same scenario keeps playing itself out over and over: A young, attractive woman will blog about her sexual escapades. Granted, this isn't everyone's cup of tea, nor should it be; but it's their blog and their right to discuss what they see fit. Someone, usually a cowardly anonymous douchebag, will take the sexually active woman to task, usually using the tired line "You must have low self-esteem." Horsecuntingshit!!! Not everyone has the same personal morality, agreed, but just because mister or miss anonymous has a bloated sense of self-worth for presumably keeping their legs slammed shut doesn't give them the right to judge a stranger.

And the abuse is always directed at females. If I was a young, attractive man you bet your blog-reading asses I'd be fucking a lot of women and blogging about every thrust. There wouldn't be a fucking peep of protest, either. Those offended by anything graphic would simply move on without making a fuss. Others would celebrate my manly conquests with high praise of my pussy-bangin' exploits.

I myself am not totally amoral. If one of my fabulous married blogger friends bragged in a post about cheating on their spouse, I would be very disappointed in them. But c'mon, people are trying to guilt-trip single, unattached women; and they're doing so in a cowardly way, always anonymously.

Also, I say this despite the fact that my nice guy tendencies literally repel "bad girl" types. It's their right to not be attracted to me, though; and it's also their right to behave in a way that might make some people uncomfortable.

if i was a "young, attractive woman [who] will blog about [my] sexual escapades" i'd be so turned on by you trying to defend my honor. or at least what's left of it. being as i am a slutty attention whore.

Blogger Egan said...

Interesting post man. I have stumbled across all types of blogs in the past year. The worst is the fucker Tucker Maxx that brags about all his fuquests. But to each their own I guess. It does make you wonder if they are truly getting that much action though.

Blogger Nick said...

It's a weird juxtaposition, but I don't sleep around because of my low self esteem.

I'm not going to lie to you Todd. I got fucked last night. Hard. If you want details, I'm more than happy to share, I'm just too lazy to blog about it.

Blogger wmy said...

ahhh come on sweetie, I am sure you have plenty of "pussy bangin exploits" left in you! And I want to know about each and everyone of them as they happen k? I think that "anonymous" is actually the same fucker...banging away on his laptop while jerking off...bitter at the rest of the world cause he is such a fucking loser!

Blogger katarina said...

I'm with nick.

There is no sex in my posts (unless it's my neighbors) because you actually have to have sex in order to post about it.

At least us nice girls want you.

<----not a nice girl.

and very unconcerned about being one.

Blogger yournamehere said...

dan,
I wasn't trying to turn anyone on, attention whore or not.

egan,
I like it when you call people out. You should have a second blog where you just call out crappy bloggers.

nick,
I don't sleep around because of lack of confidence and lack of opportunity.

shaken,
whether this is true or not, your timing is impecible. I'm cracking up.

wmy,
"anonymous" pisses me off. And I may have lied about telling people details of my sex life.

kat,
the nice girls don't always want me, either.

shaken,
you are "nice" as far as being a kind person, in my humble opinion. To me that's more important than a lack of chastity. But what do I know?

lolz, firstly, what do you mean?

secondly, thanks, ffs...I try to be nice.

Blogger JJ said...

It's very brave of you, Todd, to stand up for the rights of beautiful young women with loose morals... I mean, low self esteem... no, wait, wait... do you have any of their phone numbers?

Blogger yournamehere said...

shaken,
What I meant was, although I don't claim to know you all that well, I think you're nice, and that a person doesn't have to adhere to any societal standards for me to consider them nice. That's all I meant, really. I'm about to leave the house for work, so any further discussion will have to wait till this afternoon. Thanks for all of your comments that have made my last few posts seem much more popular than they really were.

Blogger Rachel said...

Aww, thats so sweet!

But you know about all the cocks in my hen house ;)

Blogger Brookelina said...

Todd - if I get laid, I promise to blog about it.

Blogger Monkey said...

I'm just a stuffed monkey with an enormous hoo-hah, but I can say without any reservation that I love naughty girls. I love naughty girls who have pride in their exploits!

The mathematical equation:
man with fuck buddies = stud
woman with fuck buddies = sad whore

is old and needs to be put to bed. Literally and figuratively. Bravo Todd. Now... post about some hot monkey sex before I am forced to read Lou Reed's blog again.

Blogger Malicia said...

I want Egan to call me out.

Monkey...It's true I'm a happy whore

Blogger Zombie Lou said...

Lou Reed thinks whores are go.

Blogger Übermilf said...

Here, here. Hear, hear? Whatever.

I will admit to the following things: being faithful, being a "good girl," being brainy, being rather (not completely) modest in my choice of dress.

Does that mean people who are different than me are wrong, stupid or otherwise deficient? Hell, no! Vive la difference, I say!

The world needs and should celebrate all sorts of people. What kind of boring world would we live in otherwise?

I think people that point their fingers and yell "Slut!" are uncomfortable in their own lives, or afraid of taking the more adventurous path.

I chose my current "straight and narrow" path after some adventures because it felt more comfortable and more "me." That's why I don't have to drag other people down to make myself feel better.

Blogger Todd said...

Todd, I have also read the exact blog you are talking about. Here's the thing: Girls are told from the time that they understand speech that their vagina is a sacred gift and should be preciously guarded and every man should respect her just for having one. Some view this as reality which manifests itself into an utterly confusing high self worth and endless annoying sanctimony, but the majority realize that this is something their parents told them so they wouldn't come home pregnant. Sure, I don't want to sleep with Miss Gangbang, but I don't want a girl who screams "burn the witch!" every time I try to stick it in her ass either.

Blogger Gwen said...

Todd, you rock for pointing out the bullshit.

I had to stop talking about sex on my blog completely because of this crap. The worst part wasn't even the men... it was the older women, many of them regular readers, who felt the need to *shame* me for even having a sex life.

One of them reads my blog constantly and only comments when I mention something sexual. I checked out her blog. She's a sad person who only sleeps with guys who treat her like crap, and writes about it terms of "love" and "romance."

Old women who shame young women are jealous. Men who shame young women are bitter. Fuck them all. Fuck those haters with a burning baseball bat.

Blogger Egan said...

Malicia, I am on the case. I will get back to you with my judgement later.

Todd, thanks for the words. I guess I just call it as I see it. If you are getting action, wonderful. But I think much of what we read on blogs could be fake. I doubt some of the so called "women" are actually women at all. Yes, I am a skeptic.

Blogger Jo said...

I'm curious about what makes a "bad girl" a bad girl. Now, I'm not sure if I'm a bad girl or not, but I am MOST certainly not a good girl. And you definitely don't repel me! I think you're totally awesome and I would absolutely do ya. And then I'd blog about it.

Blogger Egan said...

Aren't "bad girls" the ones that love to openly call themselves bitches?

Blogger Brookelina said...

I'm a bitch. Does that make me a bad girl too?

Maybe I'm not the best example...

Blogger Slutbag said...

Thanks. its nice to have a little support! i know a lot of what i do isn't 'right', or 'nice'. but, if i'm willing to live with my actions and enjoy doing what i'm doing, i don't see what the big deal is. i wonder if anon. has ever gotten a speeding tix...hmm? thats a lot legally worse than what i'm doing. at least i haven't broken the law

they should be locked up.

Blogger Dan-E said...

yeah, if brooke gets laid, i promise to blog about it as well.

"Thanks for all of your comments that have made my last few posts seem much more popular than they really were."

lolz. You're smoking crack cocaine.

Blogger Calzone said...

Whoa...that Malicia chick is hot!

Blogger Malicia said...

The wierd thing is my vagina is a sacred gift.

My low self esteem serves me well.

Blogger Egan said...

Vagina and sacred in the same sentence rocks.

Blogger FRITZ said...

AssMan:

You are so fucking right about this.
Here's the deal: I've read some stuff that I don't really agree with, but if I say something, I put my name to it, not go as anonymous. Secondly, I also have to take a moment to think, "Is this my bag, baby?" If not...move along.

Secondly, as a NEWLY ENGAGED woman (hint for congrats), I say bullocks to those who can't appreciate a female libido. When I was THOROUGHLY single, I enjoyed a fun if rocky sex life, and feel no shame about it. Well. Except for that one time involving Johnny Knoxville.

But who WOULD NOT be ashamed about that?

Todd: we adore you.

Blogger FRITZ said...

PS: I'm a bitch, a cunt, a nag, and engaged. So I'm like super-slut with a ring.

Hell to the yeah.

Blogger Egan said...

Congrats are in order Fritz.

-Anonymous

being slutty pwnz.

Blogger yournamehere said...

jj,
I have no phone numbers. And we're only taking their word that they're beautiful.

rachel,
you said "cocks".

brooke,
if I get laid, I'll blog about it, along with the accompanying blue moon.

monkey,
you are wise for one who flings her own feces, so I'm glad you agree with me.

malicia,
a happy whore is an interesting whore.

lou reed,
don't you prefer tranny whores?

ubie,
damn, you are also so eloquent. Thanks for not only this comment but all of your comments.

todd,
your words are as wise as your name would indicate them to be.

gwen,
maybe I played the double standard card in middle school, but Jesus, I grew up, you know? I think some men have never actually pleased a woman and therefore can't imagine a female enjoying sex.

Blogger Blonde said...

Toddy, I love you. I love slutbag too. Oh joy lets have a threesome

Blogger yournamehere said...

egan,
if someone is pretending to be a sexually active woman and it's entertaining, what do I care?

jo,
only other people's judgements make someone a "bad" girl, as long as all of her partners are consenting adults who aren't being emotionally manipulated. Same goes for guys.
And if you ever can't think of anything to blog about, come to Vegas and do me.

egan,
I don't know.

brooke,
I don't think your unwillingness to take a bunch of shit makes you a bitch, but perhaps that's another post.

slutbag,
your blog was the latest example, but there have been others. You are single and hurt NO ONE with your actions. Truthfully, maybe I would never be as active as some people, even if I had the opportunity, but that's just my choice. It doesn't make me superior.

dan,
we should all blog about it and have Brooke judge which story is best. I would tell the tale from the point of view of Brooke's hoo-hah.

shaken,
you're great. Even if you move away, please never stop blogging. Seriously.

Blogger yournamehere said...

calzone,
hotter than a four-slice toaster.

malicia,
Wow, I think I'm speechless for once.

egan,
I think malicia and her friends should start a band called Sacred Vagina.

fritz,
I adore you, and think your husband-to-be is one lucky guy to be marrying such a lovely, intelligent person.

egan,
I'm sure Fritz appreciates the congrats.

shaken,
I mean it. Keep the comments coming and never stop blogging.

blonde,
that is officially the best comment ever. A threesome would be a good idea, because after my heart explodes due to the absolute, total, and complete bliss I'd feel, the two of you could pleasure each other.

Todd, how do you really feel about my blogging?

Blogger Claudia said...

Great post,

I LOVE reading that stuff.

p.s. "Big ups" to Fritz.

Blogger Malicia said...

I got rid of the cat

Blogger Brookelina said...

Is someone talking about my hoo-hah?

Blogger yournamehere said...

shaken,
what can I say? I'm a fan.

claudia,
I'm glad you liked this.

malicia,
NICE.

brooke,
yes, I said when you get laid, I'll write a post from the point of view of your hoo-hah.

egan,
you didn't have to delete those comments.

Blogger Egan said...

Yes, I know I didn't have to delete my comments. However Todd I really really hate rodents.

Blogger Social Drunk said...

whatever. i gets mine: posting about it is the purpose of my blog. and you best believe its happening - cuz i even post the few times i dont hit.

i'm all for women having sexual freedom. its almost 2006 and women are still being persecuted for being equal. it turns me one when a woman is sexually independent. its nice to be able to deal with a woman sexually on an adult level. i'm 29, the only way i could avoid sexual bullshit was to holla at women nearly 40 who'd finally gotten over the idea that THEIR vagina was going to save the world.

Blogger marie said...

I am a little tired of all this PC crap; enough already!
