reverse compliments

Here’s the deal. Why do people want compliments that would, when thought about, actually serve as a sort of insult.

So you are dating someone who does not wear makeup on a daily basis, then on a dinner date, she does; to which you respond with, “you look so beautiful tonight.”

Look, I understand giving exceptional compliments on a night where a woman is really going to care how she looks, but didn’t you just say you look more beautiful in this artificial state than you do naturally… ? It’s true that I tend to throw all non-logical arguments against issues such as this one out the window, but I am really trying to draw out the harmful effects of this consistent enforcement of the idea that we must be improved by products somehow, or that there is a standard all men and women seek and if you do not meet it, you are inferior in the eyes of the other sex, or in the case of gay and lesbian people, inferior in the eyes of the same.

You know what? Nevermind.

I’ll never come out ahead in an argument that challenges innocent behaviours on the parts of people who don’t really understand what they’re doing or saying as they further the cause of… of fucking ‘taker’ nonsense really. Our global phalocentric-hyper-sexualized culture makes me suicidal and I guess that’s a personal problem.
