Oh my god. I’m so mad right now. Virgin heroine falling in love with her player lover dude who cheats on her…. totally ruined an otherwise perfectly good book. Oh, and this heroine had two curses put on her that rendered her unable to even TRY to have sex with other people… I am so sick of this plot line. WHO THE FUCK CARES IF SHE’S SLEPT WITH OTHER PEOPLE OR NOT??? WHY YOU GOTTA PUT SO MUCH STRESS ON IT??? WHY CAN THE GUY DO IT BUT NOT HER??? CAN WE JUST MAKE THE SEXUAL STATUS OF ALL HEROINES AND HEROES AMBIGUOUS? WHY IS IT ALWAYS SUCH A BIG DEAL?!
This isn’t me being bitter against men (cause I still love me my men, if you get my drift) but rather me being bitter against society. I am so sick of reading now. I put down a book as soon as it even mentions the heroine’s virginal state, man hating state, slut shaming-ness (especially since it’s TOTALLY OKAY for the guy to be a TOTAL DOUCHE to all the sluts he banged and yeah, she’s SOOO nice even though she BASHES girls based on how much sex they get which has NOTHING to do with her or others), or lack of a healthy happy sex life (aka only ever had sex with losers who never gave her an o… like seriously?). Why?
This is slut shaming. No, worse. This is a form of shaming women for having had sex with even ONE OTHER PERSON before she met “the one” and ENJOYING IT. There is NOTHING wrong with that and fuck anyone who disrespects and tries to shame any man or woman for enjoying sex with multiple people.
Quite honestly, every time I come upon these heroines these days, it makes me want to go out and blow a dick or two just out of petty spite. It even makes me want to get all slutty and have some hot angry quickie sex with as many guys as possible right now. And I just might. CAUSE NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT (condom)
(AGAIN [although, I can’t seem to find my previous more in debt post about this], nothing wrong with virgins or having not had a good sex life. I’m not shaming anyone here. I’m just so annoyed at this trend. At first, I was totally fine with it but like 100+ consecutive books with the same theme later… no. Just fucking no.)
Also, heart broken at fucking 10 years old? These authors have got to stop that trend cause it projects women as like fucking babies. They just need to get over it. Like a year of mourning MAX.
Apologies if I’m being insensitive but seriously, they have to get over it if they want to be happy.
Don’t know if you can tell BUT I’M SO SICK OF THIS.
Someone give me a GOOD STORY about a woman who has had a great sex life, does not hate men, is over all her heartbreaks, and is not consciously avoiding close, romantic attachments (AKA A NORMAL SEXUALLY LIBERATED WOMAN) but her sex life is not the main point of the story.
I like action and adventure. Fantasy is fun, too.
OR YOU KNOW, since the amount of sex a person has isn’t ACTUALLY THAT IMPORTANT, a story where the character’s sex life is totally up to my fucking imagination. And you bet your ass he/she will be an EXTREMELY happy-with-their-love/sex-life raging nymphomaniac to make up for all those unsatisfied-till-they-meet-a-man usually-virgin heroines.
Her voice is full of money.
It’s not where you go, but how you get there.
she wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts
she’s cheer captain and I respect her right to wear whatever she wants and participate in traditionally ‘feminine’ activities because I understand that life is not about condemning another woman’s personal choices just because she doesn’t ‘deserve’ the boy i have a crush on
Work it, girl!
