Eureka Moment #6
Being around a group of women, you get to understand the most accepted stereotypes about women that society adheres too. Men are not the only wants believing these stereotypes, but the women themselves believes these stereotypes. I was at a party a few days ago and I overheard women talking about another's woman clothing. This woman was showing a little cleavage, and obviously an attractive person. The women said she looked loose, and that men were of course paying attention to her because she seemed easy strictly because of the fact that she was showing a little skin. I have never heard men or women talk about a guy being "easy" if he's dressed provactively. Is there a way for a man to provactively dress? Society is not as concerned with calling guys "sluts", etc for some reason. It is not as shaming for a man to be sexually active, attractive, or desireble as it is for a woman. Also it is not as acceptable for a woman to have a sexual appetitite as it is for a man to have one. For men are expected to be sex crazy, as science says men think about sex every 7 seconds! However, if women reveal a sensuality to them whether it be through their clothing, or through their love life, they will most likely have to endure names and judgement. That is why it is more important for all of us to be true to ourselves, and do what makes us feel happy, rather than what we think others will be able to easily digest.
