2 ---girls---
girls like gays they adore gays much more then we do "girls with girls"

Select few? That's an understatement.

Is the world going girly? --- Is the world going stupid?

I'll take neither of them for 200 Alex.

What the world is becoming is rude, empathetically challenged, and borderline ignorant at times. I see three members that I share a great deal of respect for, treating a fellow member very poorly, and for what reason? Rather than offering a legitimate response, that the member deserves, this is what we could come up with? Some inadvertent, back-handed insult?

Please. We, you, and I, are all better than this.

Sometimes it truly is better to say nothing.

 


To the topic at hand, is the world becoming girly? I don't think so.

I think the market for pop music, and pop culture in general, is changing by the minute. This current trend is just another notch on the belt, and it will fade away just as everything else does.

Lil Jon? Lil Jon's most popular stuff is post-y2k. I don't think it's fair to group him as "old hip hop". When someone says "old hip hop", I think back to Run DMC, and other various individuals and performers that paved the path that so many walk today.

I'm a fan of almost all form of music, bagpipes excluded, but I can honestly say that I oppose hardcore rap. Surely these individuals have a creative bone in their body where their lyrics can consist of something with a bit of substance. Sex sells, we know that. But how far are some of them willing to take it?

Is the world going girly? I don't think so. Like I said, just another notch on the belt.

Sorry buddy, that wasn't my intention. Peace?

Back to the topic at hand, I don't think the world is becoming more girly. However I do stand by my statement that the world is becoming more stupid, and ignorant as well. Actually I think more ignorant than stupid, but sometimes the line blurs.

1. Music
Maybe it's just me, but I noticed that the music has become less about stuff that matters and more about petty things of no real consequence. I see nothing wrong with emo songs, so long as it matters.

Example -- Guns 'n Roses - November Rain. That's an emo song. But it's about love, and love matters. Hip-hop gangsta rap -- take your pick of an artist/track -- they talk about bling-bling and hoes and what nots. That's materialistic and inconsequential.

2. Girls
As far as I can tell, they've always enjoyed the company of gay men. I see no problem there. Gay men need friends and good on them if girls want to be their friends. Being jealous of the fact is a moot point, in my humble opinion.

What I see as wrong, in girls today (girls, yeah, not women) is that they, too, seem to place importance on the inconsequential stuff. But then again I'm not that old so I can't really make a fair assessment here.

3. Homosexuals in the army
Hey don't kid yourself, some homosexual men are tougher than most straight guys. Don't really have much more to comment here.

4. Emo boys
Again, I see this as more silly than girly. Getting all emotional over nothing or at least over silly little things like how your friends perceive you. Wrong emotional investment, I believe. You want to be emo, be emo over the fact that the world is going straight into the gutter. And do something other that slitting your wrist about it.

About the TV commercials -- It's a logical step. The purchasing power of women has increased significantly. And where there's purchasing power, there'll be a legion of marketeers trying to tap into it.

My $0.02.

Chill, dude! That's what girls do, they shop! I remember reading somewhere that it's a sort of throwback to the cavemen days, when women foraged for food and other stuff while guys went hunting. If that's true, then there's nothing much we can do about it, since it's in their nature. You can't fight nature, you would only lose.

I don't know which young ladies you know but the ones I know don't spend their time shopping; they spend their time working their butts off at jobs, school, volunteering or in activities such as 4-H. Me thinks you need to expand your circle of friends.

As far as the world going girly don't think so as Chissler said just a phase things alway change.

Take care.

Aha! Now we've gotten to the root of the problem!

Strange, I've had this happen to me, too. Never really gave it much thought, though.

It's a test, young Padawan. Use the force


But seriously, it's a test. Or a game. You've got to remember, a lot of girls read magazines about relationships and all that junk at the same age most of us guys were catching bugs or burning ants with a magnifying glass. So when you read something in a magazine that you've got the capability to try, you would go out and test it, right?

That's what they're doing, I'm certain. They wanna see how you'd react. They know a whole lot more about all these dirty mind tricks. So what can you do? Do the Jedi mind-trick. Play the game with them.

Just play the game

Neither, if girls are what you're after


Here, this really helped me out when I first entered college and suddenly was surrounded by sneakier, more devious women. Learn from it, try to apply it in your life, and be a better man.

Good luck!
