Oh, I do so love the romance and dating writers for Yahoo!.
David Zinczenko's newest column about sex and dating is no deviation from his norm. In fact, I'd say its only worse than normal.
Check this out:
Men in the presence of women are like children in a toy store. We have our hearts set on that special one, but we are still dazzled by all the glittery objects around us - and we want to look here, there, and everywhere.
Here that ladies? You're an object and a toy. Couldn't he at least come up with new sexist ways of describing women?
I certainly know lots of men who appreciate the female body as one of the world's most luscious visions. They feel the same way about the Grand Canyon - but they aren't going to move there.Oh, perhaps he's found it. Instead of a toy, now we're vacation spots. But always passive things that are there waiting for the male gaze.
Many guys feel that as long as they're not outwardly being disrespectful with long ogles or stares, then it's okay to engage in some art appreciation (within reason, of course).Ooh, art pieces. That one's there to class the piece up, I'm sure.
And a woman who tries to squelch that right with paranoid accusations might actually provoke her man to follow up one of those glances with action.And last but not least: You cause your man to cheat on you.
I don't know why I'm such a glutton for punishment when it comes to these things.
