Cynicism, Beware

WARNING: This post has not been censored by the logical part of my brain. It is asterisked for language, content, emo-ness, and implied homicidal tendencies. If any of this offends you, please stop reading NOW.

I typically don’t like watching chick flicks. They’re screen plays written by women lacking in a healthy and functioning romantic life, who find certain pleasure in misleadingly upping our standards for men (don’t ever say I never fought for you, men).

I always feel so degraded and unsatisfied afterwards. It’s kind of like I’m the cherry lip gloss you find at the dollar store check out counter; the one that all the little kids stick their tiny fingers into, but no one ever buys.

Way to build my self esteem.

It’s always the same story. Girl is either unapproachable, incorrigible, or in some way unattractive, hence has thriving insecurities. Boy is successful, typically a womanizer, and has way too much charm for any woman’s sake. Boy meets girl. Boy uses girl. Boy falls in love with girl. Boy screws up. Girl slaps boy. Girl realizes boy and girl had fun together. Girl loses all dignity and goes crawling back to boy.

And so the cycle of masochism begins again for another unassuming----and most likely insecure-yet-beautiful----tragic heroine.

Why yes, I am a cynic.

Why is it that the people who seem to succeed most in life are total bastards? They have no qualms about stepping over others in pursuit of their ambitions, and they frighten off all the good people until there are none left. Why are the manipulators and condescending jerks always ahead ---even though we know exactly how big a douchebag they really are?

Back to masochism, I guess.

I just think of all the people I know who are considered successful by all societal means and they’re really awful. Sometimes we make excuses for them.

‘Oh, she’s only that way because she’s got a strong personality. You need that to play with the big dogs.’
Why can’t they just say she’s a cold bitch who doesn’t care about who she hurts as long as she proves to the world that she was right in the process?


‘He’s just under so much pressure to be the best. He is a legacy, after all.’
Don’t you mean he’s a spoiled little man whore who’s had everything handed to him his entire life, and it’s still not enough for him, because he obviously can’t find satisfaction?


I think that’s what you meant to say.

Ugh. Too much meanness here.

P.S. I have to go to school tomorrow. Meh.
