So, like NotoriousV, I don’t have much to say—besides I am incredibly busy. I want to make a comment about double standards and employment. I overhear women co-workers all the time commenting about how great a dress makes another look, or how her hair looks, and so on. of course, if a guy says these things, he is liable to end up with a sexual harassment charge. Even outside work, it works the same.
The other day I saw an amazing looking woman. I could tell she was the type to look for attention. (I am not sure what gave it away: the Mercedes, the jeans so tight you could crack a whip on ’em, her walk…). She had an amazing body and her eyes were piercing blue. I felt bad that I couldn’t just compliment her natural beauty—perfect breasts, amazing ass, the typical guy-attraction stuff. Compliments of these sorts are generally off limits. And the comments do not have to be particular sexually oriented.
I say these things are generally off limits because it is not uncommon for someone to approach a child (especially babies) and talk to them, tell their caretaker how beautiful the child is, or tickle the child. Of course, if I had used this approach on the woman to whom I am referring…well, just say odds are I’d be in big trouble. Now, of course, (everything of course) I am of the belief that one shouldn’t accost children like this, I am just talking about the double standard thing. People do deserve personal space. But, that aside, if only it wasn’t taboo to comment like this, the world might be a warmer place.
The other double standard is that women can get away with saying something like this to a guy. She would be considered flirty, perhaps, but not a letch. C’est la vie.
