So there I am, fragging on a game server for a game that's nearly as old as this show. In computer years the game I'm playing, even though it's given a graphics upgrade, is ancient, and I'm wishing Electronic Arts hadn't pulled the plug on Battlefield 2142.
So what does this have to do with an absolute trash show about vapid females competing for wealthy moderately handsome males.
I had the TV on in the background and was too lazy to put it on something I liked. And I'd heard a lot about this show, so I let it run. And my god, how on Earth does this junk get shot and aired?
I had a friend. A female. She was in my martial arts class. And she made one observation as a female observing other females. This is her statement, not mine. And she said; "Girls are stupid!" I thought that was pretty cruel, but after tonight, the day after Superbowl 50, seeing this, and the "How to be Single" promo of the "fat girl" making fun of the show in which that commercial was airing, it's hard to argue with my friend (she got married a couple years later).
But she went on to say how some girls, not women, will believe anything, and how some really are vapid when it comes to "relationships" or "dating" and related issues.
Again, being raised on egalitarian values in a household that was very forward thinking, I thought this was exceptionally condescending, and false. I mean the sexes are supposed to be on par with one another in terms of smarts. Right?
Again, after crap like "Dancing with the Stars" or "Survivor", and now having been exposed to this junk, I'm reconsidering my parents' socially forward ideals when it comes to the differences and similarities between the sexes.
Ladies, if you REALLY WANT A MAN, there's is someone out there. He may be an ex con, a pervert, both, homeless, fat, bald, big nosed, unemployed, on food-stamps, part of some biker gang, drug cartel, still in college, living with his folks, but he is out there. If you feel the need to satisfy some romantic fantasy by vicariously living it out through this TV program, then perhaps you need to start cracking the books and read up on microbiology or high energy physics, and stop thinking about how that dress makes your fat thighs look like tree trunks.
Seriously, I can't imagine anyone taking this show seriously on any level, unless you were a spoiled young female who never had to work a day in your life, and were cruising on your beauty as opposed to trying to compliment it with education as you probably should have been doing all along.
Okay. I saw this pile of bio-excrement. Time to go back to that game server, and hope my senses and sensory organs are never polluted by trash of this caliber ever again.
