They left a quick little note; “Hey! Great pictures! Let us know if you’re interested!”
(For one, I HATE e-mails like this. It sounds like a blanket that you sent to everyone. If you want to get in our pants, you have to make it sound like you want in our pants.)
So, they looked cute enough, young enough, so I click their profile, and was INSTANTLY offended.
The FIRST thing you see is in ALL CAPS (which is internet speak for shouting, if you didn’t know) “Do not contact us if you aren’t circumcised.”
Why was I offended? Well, 2 reasons.
1) Mat isn’t circumcised. It felt like they were rejecting him without even meeting him. It’s cool if you don’t like me, or him, or us, but GEEZ, give us a chance. He could have a mini-micro penis, but that wouldn’t change the integrity of his soul. I think it’s INCREDIBLY shallow to reject people before you’ve even met them.
2) Oh my god! What’s wrong with it not being circumcised? You do realize that if you pull down on the shaft SUDDENLY it looks like a circumcised penis? Geez, grow up.
I sent her back a reply that said, “What’s wrong with not being circumcised?”
Her answer was, “Well, it’s dirty.”
Sweetheart, I hate to break it to you, but EVERYONE’S genitals are dirty. Be it male or female, circumcised or not; it’s all dirty. You know what I do? I keep a package of Summer’s Eve wipes with me when I know sex is a possibility, but might not have time to shower right before. We also have a pack by the bed, you know, for first-thing-in-the-morning sex. They are tasteless (unlike baby wipes) and ph balanced for the females (unlike baby wipes), and they gently wipe away ANY hint of dirt or sweat, or whatever.
I mean, if you’re adult enough to be having sex with multiple people, you should be mature enough to get past a penis that looks different. As long as everyone keeps themselves clean, there is no difference besides the way it looks.
Your thoughts? (And yes, I will probably be quoting and linking some of your answers in an upcoming post...)
