Www askmen com dating
Would be telling those of us who date men that we should start tricking our fellas into sitting on broken chairs? Excuse my language, but I think that article is fucking bullshit and immature as hell. And lo and behold, we had an adult conversation about it, and decided together, as adults, that we would start exercising together and eating less and hold each other accountable.Should we shame them into wearing swimsuits and then mock them once they do? I think this advice should go nowhere except into the misogynistic, immature, garbage heap. I don't think they realize how much those suggestions can backfire.However, askmen just couldn't resist adding snarky little comments at the end about how she might "see through your ploy" or how you need to take action by "separating her from fatty foods." And that snarky advice is kicked up a few notches when the suggestions get more outrageous.(Hey askmen, leave the snarkiness where it belongs: right here at Bitch.) When the list suggests you serve your gal "unsatisfactory portions," the author explains, "By making her ask for more food, you might succeed in shaming her into an acknowledgment of her recent weight gain." Ah, sooo productive.This critique of a traditional train of thought emerging in a male webzine is appearing in such a public forum because it is now a popular train of thought; a train of thought partially popularized by the internet, which is the machine behind new visual culture.In this culture, practices once dominated and standardized by a largely controlled media network and a small in-group of icons has branched out along with the accessibility of free-media and do-it-yourself entertainment (youtube as tv, podcasts as radio, blogs as columnists and political/social watchdogs) and we have been exposed to the true breadth of society.As a woman, I don't spend too much time hanging out over at According to askmen.com, one way to subtly tell your female partner she's packed on a few too many lbs (you know, besides having a conversation with her about it) is to "sabotage her chair" by removing some of the slats or screws.Maybe I should start, though, because people who frequent the site are getting valuable life lessons hand over fist in the form of the askmen Top 10. That way, when she sits down on the chair and it breaks, you can shame her into thinking it was because she's too fat! (I am kidding.) Some of the other tips in the Top 10?
perhaps you should spend less time in front of your computer and more time exercising or your boyfriend wont have to sabotage the chair in order for you to break it when you sit on it.Apparently, the only way we'll make a positive change in our lives is if our boyfriend (I am assuming a heterosexual audience here) makes us do it through trickery.And of course he isn't doing it for our benefit, but rather so that he'll want to bone us more.(You can read the full list of suggestions here, if you think your blood pressure can handle it.) I have included a few images from the list, just to spice things up.At least is consistently misogynistic in their words and their images, right?
