Ooooohh! I just want to say for the record, that
I'm almost writing this against my free will. It's
a sad compulsion to say something to a rhetorical question because
you just can't let it go. Those who know me, know I can't
let things go.
I was looking at Moe's Power
Point about Mitra's
piece and figured, I had to read the original to know what
all the brouhaha
was about. [Guys
are stupid] Who knew the satire was better than
the real thing? Just for the record, regardless of my personal
choices I don't
care if people are celibate or the human equivalents of rabbits
in heat. That indifference doesn't mean I don't
occasionally judge people for what they bring on themselves.
Mitra, I'm not going to comment on your English or your writing.
I will comment on the fact that for someone who
thinks other people lack class for the way they speak and behave,
you leave a lot to be desired as far as your skills go. If you
have to use profanities to describe bad events, and have to punctuate
the "good" things with profanities too, it shows
that's how you express yourself.
I don't know an
awful lot of people who need to fill their speech with profanities
to get their point across. This is the equivalent of the use
of words like "dude", "you know what I mean" and "like" when
you really have nothing else to say. Drop the filler, get to
Second, as someone who was labeled a "feminist" before
I knew what the word meant, I have to tell you, feminism isn't
about sleeping around (or fucking) anything that walks by you.
Feminism was and is about empowering women to have equal rights
in society. For example, in the US, rights such as voting, owning
property, getting an education, getting equal pay for equal work--
that kind of thing -- were the goals of feminists. Sexual liberation
came as a part of that.
No, women shouldn't be labeled
for having sex and rejected for it (especially since heterosexual
men need their participation), but I don't really consider
sexual activity as a badge of honor either. It's relatively
straightforward and common. If you have to talk about sex that
much in light of the millions of other things (Iranian) women
need to overcome, perhaps you don't really know what feminism
is and are trying to brag about something that most people
don't want to know about. You had sex? Congratulations! You enjoy
Good for you! I don't care.
Far be it from me to defend Iranian men, or men of any stripe
for that matter. But today, I'll make another exception
and take a stab at it. If you spend a month dating a guy and
having sex with him before you're disgusted by his multi-faceted
stupidity, that says more about you than him. Either you want
a relationship with someone (which generally takes a few months
to establish before you jump in the sack with him) or you want
no strings attached sex, which leaves little room for intellectual
criticism. It doesn't work both ways.
some (Iranian) women act -- the nosiness, the materialism,
the cattiness, the por rooyee, the list can go
on -- one can only conclude that these stupid men obviously
to pair up with. That is as it should be. Otherwise, the
well-adjusted, intellectual types would put these inferior creatures
zoo and gawk at them until their race dwindled to nothing.
tell me, how sad would that be? While I'm on this topic,
I also recommend you find some new friends. With friends
like that setting you up, who needs enemies?
In conclusion, I wish you luck--lots and lots of luck.
I hope you first figure out what it is you want in life and
then find it as soon as possible. You're right, everyone
deserves to experience Life while they're around. Just please
share the dirty details with people who can't help you.
