To follow up on yesterday, here’s another example of an “I’d-sure-think-about-doing-that, but-never-act-upon-it” type of thought.
One of the more popular kind of photos that you see posted on Facebook is a photograph that features a group of 5+ girls in a row, in their outfits — and either out, or ready to go out for the evening. Because I leave in reality, let me articulate what every heterosexual male thinks when they come across this type of photo with a group of girls in it. Guys go from left to right, look at each girl, and say to themselves, “Yes. No. Yes. Maybe. No. No. Yes.”
Now just if only one guy out there (someone probably has I assume) would actually post that as a comment — the whole “Yes. No. Yes. Maybe. No. No. Yes.” Admittedly, I would never do so, in fear of being labeled an inappropriate judgmental sexist pig. But if it’s true that we guys already have these thoughts in our head, umm, what does that make all of us? I guess it’s ok to be an innapropriate sexist pig, as long as you’re only that in your head.
In many cases, I bet girls do the same exact thing. Surely many wimmens must look at our bro-ish dude pics with us and our friends in them, and think to themselves, “I’d do him, not him, him, not him, him maybe, him for sure.” And the same goes for the gays too, and everyone really when they’re looking at these types of group photos.
Anyway, if I ever see someone post a comment like this on Facebook, I wouldn’t outwardly endorse it (in fact I might condemn it), but at the same time I’d probably laugh and say “wow” in my head. And if you weren’t a “no” in the photo itself, you might just chuckle in your head as well — and doing so probably wouldn’t make you the worst person in the world.
