I Think this might be it for us…

13 Nov

I hadn’t seen this before, but many of the blogs on my reader list are participating. Generally speaking, I’m never at a loss for words, but it might be a good idea to write about something that more people can relate to on a semi-regular basis.

The Daily Prompt for today: Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Turn that line into the title of your post.

Who says it better than P!nk?

While we’re on the subject of Pink and how kick-ass she is, telling it like it should be, I would like to dedicate the following to anewfreelife. I wish I could give you a hug in person.

      Okay – what is ANFL? Got a link you could email me directly? I don’t want a link in the comments here…

        ANFL is the blogger Anewfreelife. You dedicated “Perfect” to her. Sorry for the confusion πŸ™‚

    I think if you’d named your post “blow me” you’d have got a lot more traffic – although you would also have created much confusion and many disappointed men returning kleenex to their boxes.
    Good songs. Love her or hate her, in the cloud of asinine piss that passes for pop these days Pink’s a godsend!

      Funny enough, I was going to name the post “Blow me…” but that would have implied that I was finally walking out of my situation, and I did not want to give that impression. The thought of men looking for porn finding my little blog is frankly repulsive, but thanks for reminding me, once again, as if I don’t have enough reminders of my true value as a woman, that men respond best to a closed mouth and open legs and that big numbers of blog hits are directly related to sexual content, explicit or implied. Pink would be very disappointed.

        You’re quite right, that was insensitive… I should have given more consideration to who’s post I was commenting on.
        There are some nice men out there, but they too, it seems, can be quite stupid 😳

        Because I love your blog and know you were not being deliberately stupid, you are forgiven πŸ™‚

        Thank you, I appreciate that.
        The blog-world and the people I’ve met through it have become very important to me. I got really distressed when I realised I’d upset you. I don’t want to spoil this lovely place with my big mouth (just rant in it).
        I have a lot of respect for the journey you are on, and even more now for your forgiveness.
        Perhaps we can delete these comments and start again!

        I tend to have a quick temper these days, and I was already pissed off before I read your comment (see blog post later today) but, despite what I’ve been through, I still believe in giving people the benefit of the doubt – we all make what we think are casual comments that we later regret. Being able to gracefully apologize and forgive are what make us human.

        Feel free to rant away – it’s what makes you so entertaining πŸ™‚

    Sofia, I LOVE pink and her ‘no-bs’ attitude. I sense you and I are in the same attitude these days. Unfortunately, it spews over onto any unwitting male friends we might have. Pink just seems to fit the bill. Personally, I REALLY like “You and your hand”. Too bad I can’t play that over the speakers at work. I work in a predominately male industry, and as a female that tends to translate to being almost violated on a daily basis. Frankly I’m tired of swimming in drool, and listening to comments like, “Well THAT’S some Grade-A piece of a** right there”. Sorry, but when did women become steak?

      “You and Ur Hand” is one of my faves, too! I have a video in my head that would have been so much better than the one you can see online πŸ™‚

      I also work in a male-dominated field (civil engineering) and I know exactly what you’re saying about the daily abuse. My first job in an engineering office (I was 22) had me working under a real winner in the asshole gene pool – not only was he verbally abusive, he was sexually inappropriate as well. When I told The Boss that T had made comments, gestures and had on one occasion pressed his hard-on right up against my back as I sat in my chair, I was told, “That’s just the way he is – his generation isn’t very sensitive,” and I had to let it go. I quit not long after that (I was young and did not know the proper way to respond to such overt abuse if it didn’t happen at home) and developed some interesting neurosis as a result – I hate to be touched, but especially by men. Awkward when other people are “huggers” and just don’t get it.

      I hate to break it to you, but women have always been steak. The man with the biggest dick wins the women and we have no say over the matter. That will never change. Choosing solitude is worth the price of being called names, IMHO, and that is the route I will be taking.

        I guess I should say I’ve always known that women have always been a piece of meat. I just held onto the idea that there was ‘someone somewhere’ who didn’t think so. I’m tired of being part of a menu, instead of being seen as a viable, wonderful PERSON…irregardless of gender or size of our boobs. Unfortunately, they don’t..nor do they want to consider what makes us AWESOME PEOPLE. The consider the size of our cups as directly relative to our worth. Bull Sh**.

        Those men who do not view women as meat are instantly snapped up and married and live a wonderful life filled with happiness. We read about them on occasion, we may even have friends who were lucky enough to have found them. The rest of us are stuck with the rejects.

        The size of our boobs is only part of the equation – the availability of said boobs is also of paramount importance. A woman with big boobs who doesn’t put out is good for nothing but name-calling. Closed mouth, open legs – that’s all they care about.

    Try on this one by Pink – So What
    My girl is a fan, so I got us tickets to see her a few years ago. Good show.
    Ting Tings opened. Not so good.

      I LOVE Pink! Someday I hope to see her in concert. She says it like it *should* be…
