People Pleasers

People pleasers really rub me the wrong way. I feel like I automatically dislike you if you're someone who doesn't stand by their own convictions -- or worse -- if you don't even have any. I feel like people that are overly nice are compensating for the fact that they really have nothing else to offer the world. I'm not saying to be unkind, because kindness is a wonderful thing. But stop agreeing with everyone all the time, and have an original thought~! Have something that you feel passionate about! Stop caring so much about what others think about you! Stop compromising who you really are just so you can be liked by other people!

I'm much, much quicker to respect someone who disagrees with me with their own original thought, than I am to respect someone who just endlessly praises me and everything I do. I don't need your inauthentic, weightless words in my life, even if they are nice. I don't want nice. I want genuine. And if you're not that, get away from me.

The Plight of the Average Straight Man?

I wonder what it's like to like reeeaally want to get laid. To go so far out of your way, to make substantial compromises and sacrifices, for a chance at it. Are guys really that weak and powerless to the urge? Is the desire THAT great? Or is it just the media that has unfoundedly conditioned me to believe they are that way? Even conditioning THEM to believe they are supposed to be that way? Thinking about things like strip clubs and prostitutes... I can't even imagine being in a place where I'd be voluntarily paying for that shit because I'm fiending so hard for another person's body. I want to understand it, but it's so difficult because I've never ever felt or thought that way. 

I guess, when I see a beautiful, interesting person, I look at them as cool, pretty objects that I'd like to own, keep beside me, and display. LOL. It's never ever fueled by sex. Lol. Maybe I'm the sicko here.
