Lots to comment on today. I refreshed facebook to see if there were anymore comments and as predicted the entire discussion I commented on just an hour ago or so in my previous post is GONE! I see why Lori tells women not to hang around social media and the internet. If you follow too closely you see things before she gets a chance to delete or pull the weeds from her manicured garden.
The reason for this post is to share her latest “share”.
I use to think that way. That you are to respect ALL men for simply having a penis. It doesn’t matter what they do, they should be bowed down to and worshiped even if you have no relationship with them. Imagine that– a boyfriend of two weeks gets the same respect and attention as a father, grandfather, or husband. It just doesn’t equate. The manosphere loves stuff like this because they don’t want to have to earn respect. If this is how women should treat ALL men, then there really is no incentive for men to get married, be fathers, or grandfathers because the respect they receive will be given anyway by virtue of having a penis and simply being a boyfriend of two weeks. Lazy men love this as they don’t have to lead either. I am all for respecting your husband and men in your family and doing all those things on that list, but to give automatic respect to ALL men simply for being men that you have no relationship with is where it gets nutty.
Take “never ignore him” for example. What if all men want a woman’s attention at the same time. Sorry, but the husband is the one that doesn’t get ignored, all other men, like men online who want a response to a comment–have to wait or get nothing at all. I use to feel like I had to juggle all these men to keep them happy and entertained when really it just makes you a respect whore, going around dishing out respect to any man. Respect, like virginity, looses its value if its cheaply given away left and right and it just encourages men to continue to be lazy and not improve themselves if they can get the same respect online from a woman as they would in real life.
Also, on the “never look away or text while he is talking point”. What about changing a diaper or cooking dinner while talking to your husband? Happens all the time! By not making eye contact does not mean you aren’t respecting, it means women are trying to multi-task and run a household. The texting point I agree with though as usually that can wait, but changing a diaper or making sure the food doesn’t burn—not so much. But then again, if we are not to ignore all men…..what if your husband is trying to talk to you and your father is texting you—which one do you choose to give your sole attention to? Afterall they ALL need to be treated this way because they are men, so strong, but yet ego so hurt if you don’t cater to all of them. It’s so confusing.
