Why Do Guys Send Dick Pics?

Gentlemen (and you really don’t deserve that title based on what I’m about to say), why are you still sending dick pics to women you meet online? And I mean women you meet online only, whom you haven’t met in real life and now will never have any chance of meeting IRL once you have sent your offensive selfie of something that you are so much more mesmerized and fascinated by than we will ever be?

Stop Slut Shaming Me, English Language!

Because I have a vagina, I am called a woman, but because I am a sexual woman, I am called a slut. Or worse. And when I say “I,” I speak for many women. Not all women, but all of the women who have been called sluts, whores and bitches.

Bitch has a different connotation, of course. We are called bitches for asserting ourselves. Assertive men are leaders. Assertive women are bitches, or at least called bossy. But when we’re in the full power of our womanhood and we’re not holding back for fear of being judged, aren’t we all really bitchy sluts at heart? Because wouldn’t we all like to assert ourselves and wouldn’t we all like to take as much pleasure in our sexuality as we can?

This week we welcome a man’s perspective on dating courtesy of Josh Schneider (@Diji), with our first in an ongoing series of guest posts.

The Hater App: What You Need to Know

Dating apps are like weeds – get rid of one, and three more pop up in its place.

I deleted Dine, the app that (falsely) promises more first dates and less pointless texting, because 1) it has so few users they kept sending me the same people, and 2) most of the guys who asked me out were 19-26 years old, even though I’d set my minimum age to 35. I’m legitimately tired of being treated like a CWILF (Childless Woman I’d Like to Fuck) and am looking for an actual relationship, not a romp in the playpen with a curious Baby-Man.

Eyes and Ears Open, Legs Closed

Eyes and ears open, legs closed.

That was supposed to be my dating motto for 2017, but so far it’s been more legs open, eyes closed. (Not sure how helpful my ears are as I know now that nothing men say on a date – especially a first date – can be trusted. I need some kind of filtration system between my ears and my heart so when I hear what they say, I don’t believe it.)
