An Eye Opener

An eye opener. Today is about itchy vagina’s and girls who ask for it. Weird? It might get weirder. Read along and let me know what you think about today’s column!

 

It’s that time again. Just want to give my opinion about something that I noticed.. more than once. An eye opener once you know what I’m talking about.

 

Ok so today’s going to be about itchy vagina’s and girls who ask for it. Wait what? You said.. what? I’ll tell you right away.

an eye opener

I think I see the commercial more than 10 times a day: Canesten Gyno. For women with itchy moldy vaginas. You have the pill and a cream for it and you can buy it at your local pharmacy. Totally fine, but then we have the next thing: Chilly. For the smelly vaginas. We have the Always liners, so that you don’t have to worry that anybody will smell anything when you throw your legs in the air. Which, of course, is something we women do all day, every single freaking day #not.

 

We have the machines for smooth feet. Facial creams that make that one guy fall in love with you after a one-night-stand. Datingtips so that you [woman] can ask him out (shouldn’t that be the other way around? What to wear on a first date). Razors to have smooth legs for your date. Then I didn’t even mention all the make-up and other stuff.


The point is. Everything that we see on television/commercials/etc. is about things that we women should change about ourselves. They highlight certain things, marked as dirty or weird, while they’re perfectly normal. They give us things to worry about.

 

Now that wouldn’t be a problem. But think about it: did you ever, EVER, saw commercial for men about smelly, itchy, moldy Willy’s (penis)? Or a commercial that said men need to have a smooth and clean torso and how to? We buy tons of stuff, get fed up with all these bullsh*t commercials (that really annoy me), but it’s never about men.

If you think about it. Isn’t it an eye opener?

 

Another thing is that when a man is (half) naked, he’s sexy. Always. Men with a few pounds more, are called: beautiful men with a few pounds more. Men with more women are cool. Men who’ve had lots of women, have experience. Men who kissed multiple girls on one night, are called: a Casanova. Maybe a player. But we all do like players and bad boys right? So why bother.

 

Now women… Women who show of some cleavage on their pictures are whores. When they wear a bikini and pose, they’re bold and challenging. Women with no make-up on don’t put effort in themselves. Women who wear to many makeup are sluts. Women with a few pounds more are called fat or miss piggy. Women with multiple men? Not done. Women who don’t shave? Dirty. When you kissed multiple guys on one night? Slut. Had lots of men? Whore, easy to get, not important.

 

An eye opener, I hope it is. Not just for you or for me. For everyone. I hope that we can change the world bit by bit again, realizing that we’re equal and that we should stop all this nonsense.

My critical article for the day. I hope you enjoyed haha, now tell me: what do you think?

    It’s truly unfortunate that there is still an unfair double standard for men and women in this day and age. What a weird commercial to air on t.v. haha! I can’t say I’ve seen a commercial like that for feminine hygiene products before. Sounds absolutely comical!

    While I do agree that women are under a lot of pressure to be a certain ideal or image, I feel like men are starting to feel the same pressures these days. Maybe it’s because I live in Japan, not sure.. Well, hopefully more and more people will accept diversity and not be so judgmental!

    You are so right. It’s sad that there is such a double standard for women and think that we should stay true to ourselves and try to turn it around. More girl power!!

    Uhhhg, men have it way easier than women. They get higher pay, judged less and they don’t have to take care of themselves in the degree that women do. I hate the double standard. It’s not fair and I hope women can rise up together and change that!!

    It truly is an eye opener! I never really thought about this in that way, but you are totally right. I think that’s because woman are more stronger than mans in general, and society have need to show us different with all of these stuff.

    I normally am not this blunt on social media, but f*** society. I do what I want regardless of what stupid double standards there may be and what anyone else may think of me. Let’s just say I enjoyed my life to the fullest before I settled down! This post needs to be shared all over the Internet. You shared some great points!

    I agree with you. Sometimes the double standard is too much to bear. So annoying how women have to keep up their beauty like they do or else they get judged. Actually… we get judged either way!

    I totally agree with your article. There’s such a double standard in society and I get so sick of it!! Men can be as free as a bird but women are held to a different standard. It’s so not fair!! I ignore society and march to my own beat!

    I hate these double standards too, I don’t watch TV anymore, but the same things we have all over social media.
    I don’t know what else women should do to change it. Stop to buy all these products, stop to feed corporations so they’ll have to change their way to promote their products?

    I totally agree with you, as women we have so much pressure to buy products and look a certain way. I learned that you just have to stay true to your self and don’t try to compete with anything or anybody.
