Hooking Up, Mannabes and Other Morons

Mannabe n, (s): Moronic homo sapian females, typically self identifying as feminists, who reject everything intrinsically feminine and adopt stereotypical male behavior without judgment or assessment of the value of such behavior. Often employed by newspapers and institutions of higher education.

Here I am up in Lake Tahoe enjoying an impromptu winter vacation with my family, when I happen to pick up a copy of a small local paper with the intention of perusing the real estate ads and dreaming about owning a vacation home up here. I had to postpone my day dream, however, because the cover story "Hooking Up - Have Relationships Been Replaced?" was just too tempting to pass up.

I flipped to page 14, where the cover story article was promised, and read the title "New book draws fire for claiming that sex hookups can damage young women". I had to read the title three times to make sure that I was reading it correctly. My common sense told me I was misreading it, because I was interpreting it to mean that the book was saying frequent casual sex was bad for young women, and somebody was criticizing that. OK, THAT certainly can't be, it must somehow be that somebody wrote a book favorable to "hook ups", and sane and reasonable people were criticizing that premise. I re-read it again, one word at a time, and sure enough, my initial understanding was correct!


Have people lost their minds? The author of the book, Laura Sessions Stepp, apparently was so bold to imply that today's teens and young tweens' practice of frequent, noncommittal casual sex may not be in the gals best interest. Sounds reasonable enough, I mean we expect to have our own fork at a restaurant, right? You wouldn't tap the guy at the next table on the shoulder and ask him for a sip of his water, or the lady in front of you at the ice cream stand if you could have a lick of her ice cream cone, (I mean unless you knew them well enough to do so.) It seems to follow that it would be just as silly to get hot and sweaty between the sheets with somebody you barely know or feel little or no obligation towards (and vice versa!).

It seems to me hygiene alone should make people at least cautious, I mean, even an amoral, atheist robot should agree on that point, right? Not to mention the fact that anyone with an iota of self respect would use discretion when allowing another person into their most personal sphere! For God's sake, a landlord will run a background check on prospective tenants, and will demand at least require a 30 day notice when they move out! But to expect to know the last name of the person you just had sex with, or expect to hear from him again is asking too much?

But apparently, certain so-called feminists decry this viewpoint as anti-feminist, as a throw-back to an earlier, restrictive moral climate and one which instills sexual shame. Men, so their warped rational, get to be promiscuous so women should be able to too! Hmm. I wonder whether, if men cut off one of their toes every leap year, whether these feminists would do so as well...? dunno, but it wouldn't be surprising given their idiotic stance on this hooking up thing. And it just irritates me that they call themselves feminists, because they are anything but. They want to be men. (And it doesn't seem to matter whether they are like good men or bad men, because both exist in the world, you know..)

They are simply Mannabes.

Girls, and women for that matter who try to convince themselves that they can have sex with a man without consequence or emotional attachment are big, fat, fuzzy liars and should repeat to themselves "denial, ---- ain't just a river in Egypt" at least 10 times every morning. (If they can, it only means that they have managed to dehumanize themselves enough to do so.)

Women who are defending this practice suffer from low self esteem, and are the type who would take a few puffs of pot or other drugs just because their friends do and they just want to fit in, and now they have to justify the whole mess somehow, so they claim it makes them free and equal and liberated, because more than anything, misery loves company, and misery is actively looking for company amongst the naiive youngsters of today. It is a load of Bull. There I said it.

While I find the attitude of the article deplorable, it doesn't really surprise me. I went to my gyno yesterday for my annual and I asked if it was time for my 17 year old daughter to start having pelvic exams and Pap smears. She said no, and said her pediatrician was probably telling her "all the stuff we would, about STDs and protection." As a Catholic mom who sends her child to a Catholic school and who KNOWS she's had to attend "chastity days" annually in the past, I really don't think she needs to hear from her doctor about "protection." I said, "We've told her about them, too." My daughter said, "Mom, you never have." We weren't in the office at the time. I said, "Maybe not specifically, but you know how the Church feels and you know how we feel." Her father said, "Yes we have. We've said, 'No.'"

Our society refuses to see the emotional and moral consequences of "doing whatever feels good at the time." Some of us have learned the hard way that feminists don't know what they're talking about and pray every day that our children won't fall victim to the lies.

By many, sex is viewed as simply a physical function of the body, like scratching a big itch. As such, women should have the right to scratch that itch whenever they want. And then should have the right to abort 'the consequences' should they get pregnant.

I don't believe that, and fear for the damage they are doing to their souls with such behavior.

Well put; I'd go even further and say that casual sex damages men as well; hardens the heart and makes sex a sport or just another bodily function.

Jesus Tapdancing Christ, some of these "feminists" give "feminists" a bad name. No wonder nobody takes them seriously anymore. It isnt the housewives who are ruining their movement, its them, with this crazy crap.

I'd say casual sex damages men, women and...our culture! It causes us to look at one another as objects to be used and discarded rather then individual beautiful human beings with so much else to offer. And it creates a lot of pressure for men and women to look "perfect" as well! I mean, if all we are after is a quick roll in the hay rather then a loving relationship then we will only look skin-deep! **Grumble** This whole hooking up thing makes me very sad for people who are missing out on so much more in life.
