More patronizing advice for women

19 Jul

Hey, ladies! Pro-abstinence pinners want you to know about your limited choices. Let me break it down the two options for you:

  1. 100 years of sleep, then prince charming!
  2. 100 years of awake, kissing wrong frogs!

It is better for a girl to sleep for 100 years and be awakened by her prince charming than to stay awake and be kissed a hundred times by the wrong frog.

So, on the one hand, we have pure, virginal sleep. So innocent! So passive! Who wouldn’t want to calmly wait for her prince charming, who will surely come along as long as she stays as innocent and passive as she can?

On the other hand, sinful, whoreish activity. Going out and kissing 100 frogs, then finding prince charming. Or wait… It’s just one wrong frog, kissing you 100 times. This pin doesn’t even make sense.

Which would you choose? Remember: there’s no middle road.

Fight the good fight, Leslie Kemp. You’re my new hero.

UPDATE: This philosophy IRL in Ukraine.

    What about this pin here? http://pinterest.com/pin/73253931409642188/
    It’s only kind of sad…without God, I am just an amazing result of million of years of natural selection, chance and evolution. And of my family, peers, friends, teachers, lovers, my surroundings, the country and climate I live in, my hopes, dreams, opinions, experiences, likes, dislikes, beliefs and faults and qualities. With the ability to strive to be who I want to be…I guess I am fine with being God-less, because it leaves me with so much else.

    What. If you’re being kissed 100 times by the right frog?

    What if you like frogs and you like kissing?

      Apparently, there is no place for frog- and kiss-lovers in the puritan world of Pinterest. SIGH.

    I notice this often on pinterest. It seems there are a lot of housewives in the making. http://pinterest.com/pin/270004940130691279/
