Honestly...I guess I was stupid enough to think that if men could be freethinkers about religion and society, they could be freethinkers about sexuality....yet I'm finding more and more that, not only are most atheist guys socially awkward goobers, but somehow they still get their ideas about sexuality from beer commercials and MTV. They still seem to think that even though they're overweight, bald, badly dressed apes that they deserve Angelina Jolie because, "Derp...I'm smart, she should love me for WHO I am!"
Nevermind, you should do the same for another woman...grrrrr......I guess it's not really MORE common in the atheist community to be like that, but it just pisses me off that much more!
Oh I hear ya! It's almost like they are total posers when that happens. I happen to believe that my belief you can't be a freethinker and a bigot, is TRUE. Nothing in free thought includes hate. And I freekin hate Angelina Jolie....she's beautiful, an atheist, a humanist, cool, and needs to be eliminated, because who can live up to that image?? But really, I think she is an awesome human being especially for the work she does as a goodwill ambassador to the UN. Most guys don't really know those things about her, nor would it change their opinion of her one way or the other. Don't let it get to you sweetie. It will give you gray hair and wrinkles, and atheist or no, I don't think either of us desire either of those dreadful things. I find it's best to just leave these type ass hats to their shallow posing. You can't save them all. I'm loving your passion and fiery spirit though!! I've figured out the only way I can really help this problem, is to raise a son that admires women like Angelina Jolie for the beautiful things they do, more than for what they look like and doesn't look twice at vacuous twits like oh let's say Paris Hilton who is about as socially aware as roadkill and has the same IQ. Past that....I get a headache....
Her flaw is money. Having so much money comes with so much responsibility because people need what she has, money. When you acquire the amount of money that she has it is just as rediculous as the next CEO banker. Angelina may have good qualities as you mention along with female attractiveness for men but she is also buying into what the rest of the money hungry shit bags have. We all live on earth and the way we carry ourselves is quite revealing.
The points raised above have many elements of fairness, but do please make distinction between the "socially awkward goobers" who are are oblivious to good taste and tact, for lack of practice or unwitting defect of character; and the womanizers, the cads and loutish manipulators, who willfully objectify women as badges of conquest, as mere material to be used and discarded. You may find that amongst the goobers are many man of generosity and laudable conviction, who would make excellent husbands, if only given a gentle nudge to overcome their superficial blights.
Lol! ya'll kill me... this is a funny post, i like it though. i seriously can't see how any of you ladies could possibly have trouble meetin guys. maybe trouble weedin through all the potentials in order to find the perfect one, but that is a problem most would wish to have. i think the issue is that there are still so many people in the closet. i mean... online between A/N and FB you would think there are like a million atheists here in atlanta, but if you go to a meetup, it's like 10 people and 9 of them are guys. so i don't know... guess i'm in the priesthood too now since my gf decided to move back to her home country. what to do, what to do....
