Quote# 84582

I recently took a long trip for work and spent a lot of hours in the air. One of my fellow passengers really stood out in my mind: a 20-something lass a few rows ahead of me. She is a natural-born beauty in that “launch a thousand ships” kind of way – slim, near-perfect symmetrical features, piercing blue eyes, and a shapely body. She is, simply, stunning. But there’s more to this story than a retired soldier admiring an exquisite example of female flesh young enough to be my daughter.

It was actually her tattoo that first caught my attention.

She was wearing a low-slung top that revealed a HUGE eagle inked across her chest and extending down under the front of her shirt. And then I noticed her hair – what little there was of it. I’ve always kept my hair short, even by military standards, and her hair was shorter than mine. Few things de-feminize a woman more than buzzing off her hair, which is why it is considered to be shameful in many societies. She was wearing ratty, ripped jeans and far too much costume jewelry. And then I noticed the piercings. As I stood six inches behind her for several minutes waiting to de-plane I counted seven, and that was just what was visible. I wondered what else she had done to herself. A tramp-stamp is a given, but who knows what other “body art” was hidden out of my view[...]

I asked myself what would cause the stunningly-beautiful young woman on my flight – at the height of her Sexual Market Value – to do that to herself? Women dress for us, so what does she intend for us to infer? I’m easy? I’m rebellious? I can drink you under the table?

I can think of no message that her chosen facade would convey that would be in her long-term interest. In a few years after her looks fade she is likely to be just another tatted-up skank wondering where the good men are.

It didn’t have to be this way. In a different social environment a woman like her would have learned to be (gasp!) feminine. She would have observed the older women in her surroundings and absorbed benevolent patriarchy in the air she grew up breathing. With her beauty she could have married above her economic station and lived a comfortable life. We can’t know if she would have been happy, but she almost certainly would have had stability, security and comfort. But she doesn’t live in that society; she lives in a “Slut Walk” society, thanks to feminism. When she chose the “Suicide Girl” look nobody stopped her. Now she has mutilated herself with enough ink and metal trinkets to repel the kind of man most likely to give her the life she wants, because no matter what she does to the outside of her body, she will eventually want what women have always wanted on the inside – stability, security and comfort.

The fruits of feminism: what a waste.

Women ''dress for you''? I'm sorry, mate, but I could not give more than zero fucks about what you think of the way I dress. I do not doubt I have friends than can drink you under the table, but I also have friends with undershaves, too, and it is a great look. It's also a lot more comfortable than my long, wavy hair. I am also planning my first tattoo - the Coat of Arms of the People's Republic of Treacle Mine Road.

Women do not dress to impress men, not for the most part. They dress to impress each other, or - and try and make sure your dick does not blow clean off with the weight of this information - they dress FOR THEMSELVES. Wow! Wearing something you like that makes you feel nice? Extraordinary. Unimaginable.

Grow a pair, mate. The world does not revolve around you.

'at the height of her Sexual Market Value'?

Alright, I'm starting the bidding at 'attractive young man', do I see an attractive young man anywhere in the room? I've got an attractive young man with a car in the front row, any advance on attractive young man with a car? Attractive young man with a car and a college degree in the corner there. Do I see an attractive young man with a car and a job? Anywhere in the room? I'm selling now!

Going once, twice...

Sold for an attractive young man with a car and a college degree. You've got a bargain there sir.

Take a look at that website. Some of the comments are just as atrocious. As for Lyn87: die in a fucking fire.

Of course the lives of women around the world are made so much better thanks to "benevolent patriarchy".I'm sure she would be far more comfortable in a gingham dress living as a repressed soccer-mom, baking prozac cookies.

Anyone else suspect Lyn87 was just worried that she might kick his ass if he tried to put his frankly rapey thoughts into action?

If I want to look like Tank Girl and get a tattoo, what business is it of yours?

And I'll say the same thing I said when this post showed up on Manboobz...

Seems all that "benevolent patriarchy" infused air was a bit stifling.

As much as I might dislike girls with lots of piercings, it's not up to you to decide what they should and should not wear. You don't like it, fine, just don't make assumptions about her.

Or the entire female gender, for that matter. "Stability, security and comfort", eh?

No, they don't. I'm going to put a bomb in your ass now, so the explosion will decapitate you.

There's a possibility she doesn't want any kind of man, I'm thinking. Not that that thought was likely to cross your feeble, stunted mind.

*checks website*

Oh, an MRA. Aka 'not getting laid'.

The last time I was on a plane, I ate some honey roasted nuts and took a nap. I didn't spend my time evaluating the other passengers.

"Sexual Market Value"

Women do not have a "Market Value", you fucking asshole.

Really?

You're really creepy.

The last time I was on a plane, I spent my time reading, eating snacks, and generally minding my own business—not obsessively watching other people to judge their "sexual fitness."

Also, your speaking of women in terms of their "market value" is very telling about the reality of your delusional notion of "benevolent patriarchy."

What really caught my attention was this line,
"But there’s more to this story than a retired soldier admiring an exquisite example of female flesh young enough to be my daughter."

Creepy much.

Oh, and I don't dress for you, idiot.

"She was wearing a low-slung top that revealed a HUGE eagle inked across her chest and extending down under the front of her shirt."

That is so cool.

"I can think of no message that her chosen facade would convey that would be in her long-term interest."

I'm a badass? I'm cooler than Lyn87? I am unstoppable?

"With her beauty she could have married above her economic station and lived a comfortable life."

Lord forbid she live a comfortable life with an honest job and self-determination. A lot of people don't want to be defined by their natural looks either.

"Now she has mutilated herself with enough ink and metal trinkets to repel the kind of man most likely to give her the life she wants,"

You presume to know what she wants, because she is a woman. This is goddamn retarded, "Women" are a pretty fucking broad group, odds on about 50% of humanity, chances are she's repelling exactly the kind of fellow she wants to repel, that being you.

There is no such thing as benevolent patriarchy and your comment more or less makes my point for me. This, BTW, comes from a woman no tats and only single ear piercings and hip length hair that I am actually rather vain about. Though if getting a small tat would better detect idiots like you...

You didn't notice her hair until after you had seen her tattoo?
My sister-in-law's sister shaved her head last year. It made her look very beautiful.

You call HER a slut and a tramp, but YOU are the one wondering what she's done to the hidden parts of her body. It seems you're the only slut here.

We women mostly dress for ourselves or for each other. Only when we go on dates do we dress for the man in question.
Maybe she's dressing for guys her own age, guys who share her interest in tattoos, piercings and dress style? Or (gasp!) she might dress for her girlfriend.

She lives in a fairly equal society, where women can get that stability, security and comfort for themselves.
You know, it's more stable when you're the one in charge, than when you have to rely on someone else.

Don't men want stability, security and comfort too?

This made me nauseous. Fuck you and fuck your 'benevolent patriarchy', Lyn. Seriously.

I, for one, mentally high five that girl and only wish I had the balls to be as free as she is with her own body. Plus, she sounds all kinds of hot.

Women don't dress for you. Women don't do their hair for you. Women don't pierce themselves for you. The world isn't all about you, Lyn. The world doesn't revolve around you. Get over it.

A natural born beauty in the launch a thousand ships kind of way.

What, she looked like a champagne bottle?

Excuse me, sir, this is 2011 calling. We would like to let you know that 1950 left a long time ago.

And she probably got home and posted on her Facebook page about some dirty old man who kept leering at the the whole flight.
