To be neither slut nor slave

I’ve only just discovered the ‘phenomenon’ that is Tucker Max.

He makes me sad. Tucker seems to revel in his disdain of the fairer sex, mocking and humiliating his conquests publicly. Yet what mystifies me more is how he keeps getting women into his bed.

If women would just say no to idiots like him, he would have nothing left to blog about. Which leads me to question the whole modern notion of feminism and freedom.

No, I’m no prude. I think a woman’s honour does not lie between her legs and who she chooses to sleep with is frankly no one’s business. A woman should have sovereignty over her own body, but that power is precious. Why then do women squander it so freely?

Let’s be honest. We women empower men like Tucker. If he didn’t get any, he wouldn’t be Tucker Max.

It scares me, the current culture where women are either objectified, subjugated, or made to feel inferior. In ancient Celtic culture, women were warriors and equals.

Read this quote on Celtic women in the old days:

“Celtic women then achieved high positions in society and a standing which their sisters in the majority of other contemporary European societies did not have. They were able to govern; they played an active part in political; social and religious life. They could be warriors, doctors, physicians, judges and poets. They could own property and remain the owner even when married. They had sexual freedom, were free to choose their partners and divorce, and could claim damages if molested. Celtic women could, and often did, lead their men into battle.”

Women were honoured for their minds, their battle prowess, their courage. But now women are praised for being pretty, empty-headed dollies whose only power seems to be to manipulate sex-obsessed men. And are despised for it. So-called women’s magazines don’t cater to women – they cater to an industry made around making women more desirable (physically) to men.

I admit that sometimes it hurts to hear that I’m destined to be an old maid because I have ‘too strong a personality’ or that I’m ‘too smart’. But if it’s the price I have to pay for being able to say that I achieved whatever I did in life with my mind and hard work, then I pay it gladly.

Feminism isn’t about waging war with the male species. It’s about reconnecting, finding that place where once we walked side-by-side as equals. Different in ways the other could appreciate, complementing each other instead of waging a war of dominance.

So, women, embrace being women and love men being men. And for God’s sake, quit giving Tucker Max pussy.

    Hi,

    Men usually got intimidated by strong women however sometimes women had to play dumb to be in sync with `dumber’ male chauvinist, if he happens to be one.

    But times has changed and women started to demand more which sometimes scary as men are logic animal where women given much power could run astray. Like hardness find solace in softness so too are men seeking comfort in women and vise-versa. Don’t get me wrong and what i meant was we need certain balance in ourselves whether male or female species to play the right tune at right time n place.

    My opinion, the imbalance of perception that started from scripture be it religiously or philosophy, was written and interpretated by men from beginning. That’s why i totally agree with you words can be powerful tool of leading/manipulate and abuse.

    I salute you for mind nutriment…. and take care.

    Nice piece. Anyway, I actually don’t get it; seems like it is a sin to be ‘smart’ or ‘too strong a personality’ nowadays. Do people actually settle for those with less wit? It’s a paradox when the society demands us to be more smart in our thinking but equally reject us to the corner when it comes to soul-partner. The world is indeed a weird stage.

    Why are you so worked up? Is it because you see the ones being ‘victimized’ by whatshisname as stupid women? If so why not just see them as just plain stupid. Will you be as “sad” if their genders are reversed? Or will you call this ‘womanwhoseducesamanforsexthenhumiliateshim’ a slut?

    FYI. You want to know how he gets women in to bed from a realist point of view? Its called Good Looks +Money + Compliments. You talk the talk but i bet if a beautiful guy comes up to you and says something like, “I dont usually do this but the moment i saw you i knew if dont come over and talk to you i would regret this moment forever” then let slip that he wants to “take things slow” because has just been though “a messy breakup/divorce”… Hook, line, and sinker!

      “I dont usually do this but the moment i saw you i knew if dont come over and talk to you i would regret this moment forever” & “take things slow” because has just been though “a messy breakup/divorce”…

      lol… i laughed ten mins straight when i read this… what kinda morons have you been around anyway?? coz tht is what you’d have to be to fall for a line like that.

      although i agree tht good looks, money and compliments usually do the job for certain gullible women to be enamored with a guy.

      having said tht tho, i really hope tht tucker max used better lines than tht to get women into his bed if not, all is lost!!

    Why then do women squander it so freely?
    —–

    Forgive me if I am wrong, are you saying that anyone who sleeps with Tucker Max “squander her power so freely”?

    Why only Tucker Max? Why can’t all women who sleeps with men do squander her power so freely in one way or another?

    Don’t be bias please.

    There is a lot of reason why women sleep with men. For marriage, for love, for pleasure, for money, for fame and etc.

    A one nite stand with a stranger could be due to desire for pleasure. I give you pleasure and in return I am expecting mine.

    In a sense, the one nite stand is not “free” at all. A woman, just like man, expect something out of it.

    It is the same with woman who sleeps with Tucker Max. I did met ladies whose among fantasies is to be in a porn video. She wants to be watched, she wants to spark desire for her among men. It gave her more pleasure.

    This might be true for those who sleeps with Tucker Max. It might give them pleasure to see their experience being blogged by a stud. It might give them the very self confident they needed.

    We never know. And till then, I would not pass any judgement on them.

  5. I find it highly amusing and yet disturbing that so far all the people replying to this entry are men. Hmm… defensive much?
