The solution is constant and vigorous masturbation, what was the question again?

Be comfortable with your own sexuality, Mr. Mom.

Subby's mis-characterization of the article aside, I understand that the writer feels bad about objectifying women.  It is distracting and can be rude if you get lost in thought and then caught staring at some woman's bottom.  The very long road he took to finding a solution, i.e. "don't stare at body parts, move your thoughts on if you find yourself doing so" was a bit much, but seems reasonable.

My wife actually works on a college campus, too, and my kids go to pre-school there.  It is saturated with gorgeous women in revealing clothes.  When I start feeling like a perv, I just force myself to not track them as they pass.  Difficult at times, it however isn't impossible.

Interesting. Also, no judgment about your thoughts? They aren't bad and you're not bad for having them? Sounds healthy.

I use a similar technique at work. I'm now an old hideous ogre and occasionally find myself distracted by some attractive male's appearance (one particular guy, rowwrr)...wait, I was distracted for a minute.

Anyway, there's a creep line that no decent person wants to be on the wrong side of.

This god damn biology is standing in the way of me being as politically correct as I'd like to be. How do women do it so easily? How do they manage to see men for who they are and not see us as a meal ticket, or disregard our dominance over each other as being a powerful aphrodisiac?

I guess I just have to try harder.

FTA: "I'm a stay-at-home dad to twin 4-year-old girls who are already smarter than me "

This guy has some serious issues. I work with 4 year olds. They're pretty dumb. And it's pretty hard to imagine him writing the same sentence if they were boys. He seems to think women are inherently better than men and be very uncomfortable with his masculinity.

I wish Slate would generate some answers to fake letters asking for advice that I can relate to.

I work at a private college. The girls there seem to dress far more slutty that they did where I went to school. I consider it a perk. My friend Christine takes the philosophy that if you didn't want guys to look then you wouldn't dress like that.

That was a joke, I think.  People make that joke often about their kids, dogs, cats, et cetera.

LadySusan: Interesting. Also, no judgment about your thoughts? They aren't bad and you're not bad for having them? Sounds healthy.


I don't think it is unhealthy, but I don't like to be rude and also like to pretend that I have standards.  BUT I DON'T.

When did feminism become about women continuing to dress up and dance around for men, but also making men feel bad about the whole damn system. That they are perfectly fine with because look at me look at me buy me things?
 
2013-05-30 10:28:04 AM  
That's a man that has been so ingrained with self-hatred by listening to too much to feminist garbage.

Relax, dude.  You can't fight the drive that has sustained life for a billion years.

Try spending more time on pornhub.  Nobody needs to worry about cheating when you've got the internet.

No...  no... I'm pretty sure feminism is about complaining that capitalist exploiters with vaginas make slightly less insane amounts of money than capitalist exploiters with penises, but not going to Pakistan to stop systematic female genital mutilation.

Uhhh, some women may perhaps do that. I have never seen men or a man as a meal ticket and find dick slapping contests to be hilarious (and not in an attractive way).

Instead of thinking of it as politically correct, think of hideous old, fat women hitting on you several times a day, no matter what you're wearing or doing. Think of hideous old, fat women suddenly and obviously switching their attention from you to a more attractive male who just entered the room. Think of it more as common courtesy and moving sexual attraction and hijinks to the sexual attraction and hijinks room instead of to all the rooms.

Bah. I leer when I want, how I want, for as long as I want. What do I care what some slutty attention whore thinks of me?

You could always just have your pornographic thoughts and just...shut up about them?  It's not *having* the mental cinema that's a problem, it's acting like a dumb fanboy about it.

Pretty good troll racket if you're trying to parley that into a " 'Knows His Place ' paid contributor to Jezebel" gig.

I'll give you that one.. hideous old fat women only offend me with their inexplicable pastel-colored puppy dog and kitty cat sweaters.  Skeevy guys are worse.

Dear Salon writer,

I'm a men and a feminist as well. Maybe you should get out of the house, get a farking job and stop thinking so much, because clearly it's not doing you any good. If you have private sexual fantasies about random women, but it does not in any way changes the way you behave toward them and treat them equally, then there's nothing wrong with you.

Stop being so farking stupid,
Me
 
2013-05-30 10:35:36 AM  
Yeah, sorry dude, it's pretty freaking natural to want to procreate with EVERYTHING - that's instinct, and you shouldn't feel bad about it.  You've got four choices:
-go back to being single, and fark everyone you can
-negotiate an open relationship, and fark everyone you can
-cheat on your partner, and fark everyone you can
-redirect all that untapped lust into your partner, and when she's unavailable, your left hand.
 
2013-05-30 10:35:38 AM  
That guy came off like a total pussy.  "Oh no!  I saw a pretty woman and I wondered what it'd be like to have sex with her!  What ever will I do?"  Pfft.

I'm nearly 40 and still have a crazy high sex drive.  Yep, I notice women when I'm out and about, but staring isn't polite and I learned that long ago.  All you have to do is not stare.  It's not hard if your brain isn't just a useless lump between your ears.  Noticing is fine, staring is bad.  Also, women seem to notice if you look them in the eyes.  If looking people in the eyes is too tough for you, Mr Pussypants, then maybe you should work on that first.

Selling drugs to kids or producing child porn is probably a pretty good racket too. Most people have the self respect not to do those things, however. How much of a price do you put on your dignity?
 
2013-05-30 10:36:05 AM  
Slate, Salon, who gives a shiat, both useless websites that publish that kind of shiat.

So it's only inappropriate if you don't find the leering person attractive?

Got it!

Rule 1: Be attractive
Rule 2: Don't be unattractive

FTFA: "Sure, you want to lift this woman up onto the counter and put your hungry mouth on hers while she wraps her legs around you, but in fact, you're just going to order your latté, smile politely and let it all be."

Calling utter BS. Who talks like that outside of paperback romance novels?

FTFA: "I'm a stay-at-home dad..."

I'm all for equality, but that guys rant was anything but. The self loathing in that rambling mess made me want to biatch slap him and tell him to cut it the fark out. He sounds like he has been programmed to completely hate his gender and consider men inferior. Get some help dude, you need it.
 
2013-05-30 10:39:36 AM  
My wife and I sometimes play the "why do you love me" game. One of the reasons - not the main one and not a deal breaker - that I love my wife is that she's physically attractive.

One of the reasons my wife gives for loving me - not the main one, I hope - is that I make a decent salary.

These things are not objectifying if thought of in the right context.

And for women who aren't my wife, there's a difference between "that woman has a beautiful body and in theory I would enjoy seeing more of it" and "let me fantasize in minute detail about how I would engage in intercourse with her to the point that I can no longer talk to her."

(For the record, my number one reason for loving my wife is that she's an excellent mother.)

It's not porn... it's ponies/furries. If you think it's porn there is something very very wrong with you.

I'm just trying to juxtapose real and true unnatural thoughts with what this guy is talking about. Which is nothing more than healthy natural thoughts men have about beautiful women.

What happens if you lose your job for some reason? She won't love you "as much"?!
