From the Mailbag: “Why Are Women Labeled ‘Insecure’?”
It’s been a while since I posted one of these:
I’m responding to a post a woman wrote about her boyfriend looking at other naked women on calendars, the Internet, TV, etc. I don’t understand why you, like the majority of society, label a woman as “insecure” when she doesn’t like women being objectified, which is a normal feeling. It isn’t normal that women should just have to suck it up when guys look at naked women. It’s a double standard! Why not call it what it is and stop making women feel like there is something wrong with them if they don’t like their men looking at other naked women? Instead, let’s demand more equality of the sexes and have more naked men in movies. Too bad if men feel insecure with it, they should suck it up like we women are expected to! This double standard of “boys will be boys” needs to be put in the past. What’s OK for men should be OK for women, even if the men don’t like it. — Not Insecure
Oh my God, I totally agree — MORE NAKED MEN in movies FTW! We women demand it! Enough of this “boys will be boys” crap. That is SO 1990s. At the latest, really. I mean, it’s more like 1950s! Or, 1960s, I guess, because I watched “Mad Men.” And, HELLO! Jon Hamm. I mean, he really should have gotten naked — like, full frontal at some point — in that show, amiright, ladies?? And if that makes other men insecure, well, tough. They need to suck it up! What’s OK for them (naked ladies), should be OK for us (naked Jon Hamm!)! Take your pants off, Hamm. We women DEMAND IT! Equality of the sexes, RAH RAH RAH — pants off NOW!
