“It is very important, fundamental, I would say, to learn to love, to really love, to learn the art of true love! In adolescence we pause in front of the mirror and we notice ourselves changing. But if you only look at yourself, you never grow up! You grow up when you no longer let the mirror be the only truth of yourselves but when you let your friends tell you the truth. You will grow up if you are able to make your life a gift to others, not to seek yourselves, but to give yourselves to others: this is the school of love.”—Pope Benedict XVI (via fathershane)
Philosophical thought for the morning... what do you think?
Could the modern social appearance/fashion cultural fad of women be encouraging paedophilia to become more proliferant as young boys growing up are being told what to find acceptable as sexually attractive?
Think about this: What makes a woman look different from a child?
1. Her pubic hair - but nowdays it’s not fashionable to have pubic hair, many people consider it disgusting and women are encouraged to the point of bullied to shave their armpits and groin area.
2. Her breasts and buttocks - with pro-ana and thinspo culture becoming so strong, more and more women simply don’t have any. A woman needs a bit of padding to have tits and ass!
Societies current fashion model culture is making women feel as if they need to look like…
Guys: stop and think hard about what you find physically attractive in a woman. Do you really think 12 yr old girls are sexy? If you do, you need help, right now. Stop reading and phone a councelling service immediately.
Gals: throw away the razors and eat a full meal 3 times a day and look like a mature woman instead of a little kid. Want to be treated as a responsible and sensible adult? Look and act like one!
Everyone: Stop and think about what you’re encouraging society to find attractive if you don’t like pubic hair and think thinspo is sexy. Kids are not sexy, they are cute, but the physical attributes that make a child look like a child should never be considered sexually attractive.
The feeling I get when I say something to someone in my own warped little way without any elaboration, and find that they fully understood it as it was intended right off the bat without needing any further explanation.
When the situation is reversed and they tell me how relieving it is for them to be able to say something and be understood like that by me.
Random advice: Never pull a weapon of any kind on anyone for any reason unless you know how to use it properly and are fully prepared to do so; because if that isn't the case, they could very well call your bluff, take your weapon off you and show you how to use it in a way you do not want to learn.
Really? Really?! He would rather play World of Warcraft than have sex.
Wha-huh? A guy isn’t allowed to not feel like having sex?!?! Believe it or not, sex isn’t always on a the mind of every guy every minute of every day, nor is it really all that important to many of them. The only ones I’ve ever known to obcess about sex are the ones that can’t ever get any. Plenty of guys would much rather watch hockey, or football, or whatever floats their boat. So your man prefers WoW… so what! He’s not really that much different to most other guys.
Degrading a guy over not wanting sex is no different to a guy making a girl feel bad about not wanting it. Pressuring someone emotionally into having sex when they don’t want it with snide comments and the like is essentially rape using emotional force.
Bribe him with a game time card if you’re really that desperate.
