Oneof my new years resolutions was to start writing on this thing everyday, even if its one line.
I've already effed up. smh.
Anyway, the other day on the radio I was listening to this song, I think it was like one of those songs with PITBULL yellin in it, you know, I forgot the name of it but I was STRAIGHT JAMMIN until I heard this line and I just got really pissed. He said:
she was worth the money.
I was like WTF???
No. dude, no. If this sounds like one of those feminist-doublestandard-having-rants, or a complaint-from-a-part-time-conformist-party-hopping-college-student....I DONT CARE!!
The phrase just played over and over in my head....she was worth the money?
Seriously. What thee hell...
The degradation with equating a female a HUMAN BEING, with the value of a car, home, or some other inanimate object...is just disgusting! I was genuinely surprised at how much it bothered me, but I rode on home in SILENCE.
I mean, I dont go out and purchase my friends and then at the end of the day kick my feet up and say..."gee, she/he sure was WORTH THE MONEY...all that lovely advice she/he gave me and all the time she/he spends with me...man I work hard everyday at work just so I can BUY me some her/him!"
I mean, I know in this instance the song is referring to a male paying for RELATIONS and not necessarily a RELATIONship...but gah-lee...how much easier would that whole process be if you got to know a person and the person actually wanted to give you relations in exchange for MERE companionship?! Amazing thought huh? I mean then you could spend your money paying a bill or even paying child support!
I mean come ON people....is it really that painstaking to develop real relationships with people????
Says the girl that can probably count her friends on one hand.
Well, I guess it is pretty hard.
