They are duly conditioned out of it when It is a well-calibrated system designed to produce a certain kind of person, and it works quite well for the rather uncritical conformist majority.
GH, I think Marty s point about these articles need to exist to change the media landscape is critical. Maybe it wouldn t convince her, personally, but that s not really relevant. What we need to do is shift our cultural norms. No single article is going to do that, and it won t necessarily have a specific influence on a specific individual, but it will change what s seen as normal and appropriate in the larger geek discourse. I think she s really onto something important here.
Seriously though, continue complaining about how unfair it is for men while just don t expect much to change though. The world of tumblr is filled with men who seem to think they are owed a sex partner without any work or effort, and get very annoyed with women who dare to disagree.
8775 So what do they do for much needed cathartic release when the primal call of their inner wildman arises, apart from committing suicide that is. 8776
II don't think you are spitting on us and I understand that it is a delicate matter on both sides. Reversing the mechanism will take a lot of goodwilling people ready to change their attitudes!
You should ask Leslie Medlik to chime in for a fashion piece she s an amazing stylist who works with women of all sizes, is involved with the first plus-size fashion line to show at Fashion Week, etc.
I call these online "dating sites" more of a "meat catalog site". Even their TV ads promote this superficial ideas. I laugh so much when I see ads showing this woman a picture of a guy and saying, hey doesn't this meat bag look good enough to date. There is a gazillion other meat bags like this on our site. Join now!
I do have problems finding a balance between shirts that don t look like tents and shirts that pull the buttons apart when I move my shoulders back (although this might be due to other issues with my build other than belly problems). It s particularly an issue with dress shirts where leaving the top button open isn t an option (although with those the suit hides a lot of the bagginess). I suppose if you were serious you could try for tailored clothes, but just trying on a whole bunch of shirts and discarding the ones that look bad seems to work OK for me.
Perhaps (again, based solely on my experiences) if they spent time seeking and messaging women who seemed like they'd be mutually compatible (not just that they find good looking) then they'd have more success. I would certainly not waste my time messaging men who I figured wouldn't be interested. It's not genuine, and not a good use of time and energy.
