Definition of:
Irony- d. Incongruity between what might be expected and what actually occurs

Wha ... I ... WHAT THE HELL? I thought the tramp stamp was a sign of promiscuity. In fact to most males it's a glaring neon sign that says "I put out."

Now I know this isn't true for many women, but that is the male perception in large part.

I don't ... even know what to say about this aside form the fact that the irony of this does not escape me.

    Spoken like a loser asshole who only has to look at a woman to compel her to take a vow of chastity.

    Spoken like someone who doesn't know me.

    I don't have to know you personally to know what type of person you are. This blog post alone screams "misogynist" in bloody strident tones. I don't have to be Freud to know that misogynists hate women (ergo they demean and dehumanize them) because they're unattractive gits who can't get a woman to fuck them. You, being unable to accept your inherent loserness, project it outward onto women, mocking them, reviling them, attempting to knock them down a few pegs whenever possible. It gives you a giddy little high, perceiving yourself as a superior being who will punish all those beautiful bitches for not wanting you. I know your type only too well.

    And another thing. You're a recent college graduate, correct? You, who've barely gotten a foot out of life's starting gate, sets himself up as spokespuppet for the majority of the world's male population? Oh please. The magnitude of your arrogance is quite impressive, I must admit. In a horrifying kind of way.

    The only group of men you speak for, spokespuppet, is the mean-minded group of fellow misogynists you hang around. Your type runs in packs, I'm well aware. At least it makes you easier to spot.

    Dear anonymous,

    I did get a great chuckle at your responses. You see, as a fan of free markets and free trade I could care less if someone is a man or woman. Just as I could care less about whether someone is black/white/whatever. I care about productivity, ideas, and wealth creation.

    Incidentally, the American Heritage Dictionary defines misogynist as: "One who hates women." I can assure you that though women think in a very different manner and often confuse the entire male side of our species, I certainly don't hate them.

    And for the record, Freud is decried as a fraud by the modern psychological community.

    I don't mock groups of people, well except politicians ... and police officers ... and socialists. There may be a few other I'm forgetting. On the whole, I try and judge by the choices people make. That renders the judgment one on an individual basis.

    I love how your whole argument, which is really more of a lengthy ad hominem attack, is couched in sexual terms. Isn't that kind of painting me with a sexually broad brush? Hmmmm? Who's the one reading into things here?

    A spokespuppet? Ya know, do me a favor go ask a male fried of yours what he thinks a lower back tattoo says about the woman with it. Then go ask 5 more male friends and see what they say.

    Run in packs? *laughs* Lets see One of my best friends got married to an awesome woman during college, another proposed to his girlfriend in his valedictorian speech, and two more might as well be engaged. Like I said. You do not know me. Do not pretend to understand. I don't know what sort of grudge you've got, but it's one that certainly has colored your view of people by reading far too much into things people say. Take your pseudo-psychoanalysis elsewhere.
