I had watched it about an hour ago and felt like writing up my thoughts related to the new episode; The Magic Bush
For those of you who haven’t, basically Cartman goes over to Butter’s house to play with his father’s drone and they end up spying on a woman who has a huge bush. I’m not going to go too deep into the plot, but I will say a good portion of the episode deals with the woman being offended at how everyone thinks she’s gross for not shaving down there.
This isn’t necessarily feminist, but it is gynocentric. Especially since so many women view men as scum for not liking a certain type of girl; But it doesn’t just stop at body hair. In fact, they also pick at a guy who won’t date certain women because of their weight, race, and so many other things, simply because a certain type of guy wouldn’t like it. I’m honestly sick of it.
I used to be just like those girls who made men feel like trash for not being into fat chicks; I used to believe the kind of guys who exclusively liked skinner women were womanizing and misogynistic assholes, who only viewed women as cum dumpsters. Now, I honestly don’t care about the guys who prefer skinnier women, as I already have one who likes my body the way it is.
Over the years, I’ve kind of lost track of what most guys seem to like in women because a lot of them want different things. Some guys want thinner women, some like larger women; Some men like blondes, while others go for brunettes; Some guys are more into breasts, while others prefer a woman with a nice booty.
They are not scum because they have preferences; And heck! Women are the same way. Some girls prefer clean-shaven guys, while others prefer beards and facial hair (I’m one of them, by the way; But I’m not picky); And some girls prefer muscular guys, while other women like men who are chunkier or leaner. Although, I honestly don’t see men picking at women who simply have preferences; I’m not saying it doesn’t happen, but I just haven’t experienced being picked on by men because of my preferences.
And I’ve already pointed out how society already puts beauty standards on men and women, so don’t think this argument is one-sided; So just stop treating beauty standards like a taboo, and let people live their lives.
