I was invited to an event on facebook called "GIRLS ONLY" that is described with the following drivel:Ewmygod. Last October I posted about the complete non-sequitor that is the bra-game in facebook statuses, and this one is worse. First of all, at least the stupid bra-game was "sort of" related to Breast cancer awareness. You know... boobs, bras... This piece of crap event says clearly that it's really only to "screw with guys' minds."
Ughhhhh... First of all, one of the inherent critiques to the bra-game is that if we are intentionally leaving men out from the game, then you are only bringing "awareness" (if you can even call it that) to a very select group of people. This one has absolutely no point other than to reinforce the idea that girls have to play games and be coy to be alluring. First of all, if anyone posted any of these, I'd just think they were eating or hungry or something, I wouldn't be wondering of they were prescribing some secret meaning to their relationship status. And besides the obvious point that this event heterosexistly leaves out people who aren't looking for or in heterosexual relationships with men, this event is just a convoluted waste of time that's reinforcing lame stereotypes that girls are dumb and boy-crazy. And more importantly, I find all this stuff irritating and groan-worthy so I have to complain about it or explode instead of immediately deleting the invitation. Just stop! Just be people! Anyway, the stupid thing is happening on Wednesday, so here's my "warning."
And for a better critique on how men and women shouldn't play games with each other... Miss Lauryn Hill:
By the way, I don't actually hate people. Only a little bit. Some things just really irritate me, and these kinds of shenanigans get under my skin and make me lose faith in humanity a little bit.
