Yes, I Drink Girl Drinks – So What?

Posted by Curt on Monday, 31 May 2010

I’m not much of a drinker.  I don’t like any beer.  I’m not too fond of ales.  I can do wine, but I have absolutely no taste, which is probably why I tend to prefer blushes.  I can’t stand vodka, tequila, gin, rum, or any of that by itself, unless it’s just as a shot (but then my throat will close up like you wouldn’t believe if I try to drink more than two or so).  It’s the same way with hard liquor – I can only stand this stuff if it’s mixed, otherwise it all tastes like gasoline to me.  I have a difficult time consuming large quantities of any alcohol in a single night, making me more of a casual or social drinker.  The only exception is if I’m already drunk, where at that point I have no problem drinking all I want and just about any drink tastes good to me (except butterscotch, that shit makes me throw up, drunk or sober).  But at 22, I can still count the number of times I’ve been noticeably drunk, though I’ve been buzzed countless times, so it isn’t like I don’t ever drink or go out.  Just about the only way I can enjoy drinking is if I get something so mixed that you can barely taste the alcohol.  It just so happens that a lot of those drinks are considered “girl drinks”.

Benevolent Sexism from a Different Angle

Posted by Curt on Friday, 28 May 2010

This post is the third of a series of three posts dealing with three central tenants of (third wave) feminism.  They include that of patriarchy, male privilege, and benevolent sexism (also known as “female privilege”).  These concepts are often misunderstood by non-feminists, to which feminists scoff at when presented with such a misinformed critique.  It is therefore my goal for these three posts to explain and analyze these three tenants so as to better enable myself and my readers to approach feminism fully informed and fair-mindedly.  This post will deal with benevolent sexism.

The Birth Control Pill’s Consequences

Posted by Curt on Friday, 21 May 2010

I know I’m a little late for the 50th anniversary of the birth control pill (which was about two weeks ago), but its effects are an ongoing issue so I feel that it’s timely enough to talk about.

Feminists far and wide have been celebrating the pill’s 50th anniversary, and with good reason.  Prior to the pill’s availability in 1960, the only widely available means of contraception was the use of a condom, which many men did not like because the rubber has the effect of slightly reducing sensitivity, and thus sexual pleasure for the male.  The result is that a lot of married couples forsook the use of a condom and the crude birth rate did not change significantly (the majority of births historically have been in wedlock).
