quote:

Money and success will make you happy.

Being beautiful is an obligation.

Being fat is the worst thing that could happen to you.

College will be a magical la-la land where you will finally be happy.

Men don’t like strong, opinionated women.

Being gay is wrong.

Never ask a guy out.

Never have sex with someone you’re not dating seriously.

Casual sex will make you depressed, and a ****.
Intelligent people are better than nonintelligent people.

Your parents know best.

Family comes before friends.

You should be willing to sacrifice anything for your family.

Fitting in is important.

If you’re upset, you’re probably being too sensitive.

Your friends should come from your cultural/ethnic/religious group.

If a guy likes you, he will let you know. And if he doesn’t, he’s a wimp anyway.

Your career should be as high-powered as possible.

Your husband should make as much or more money than you.

It’s okay to let men do things for you rather than learning how to do them yourself.

Never, ever trust another woman. She will stab you in the back at the first opportunity.

If someone doesn’t like you, you should probably ask yourself what you’re doing wrong.

If your boyfriend is unhappy, you should try to make him happy.

Politics doesn’t matter anyway.

Everyone can tell how many men a woman has slept with just by looking at her.

Your clothing should always “flatter” your figure.

Sex can only be one of two things: Dangerous, or Special and to be saved for The Right Person.

Getting ahead is more important than sticking to your principles.

You can always just choose to be happy.



Sounds pretty whiney in most of those.

I was told that drinking sodas before noon would give me a stomach ulcer. As if at 12:00 pm, magic juices appear in your stomach that will digest soda.

$100 says that this chick is a ugly, poor, and her problems are someone else's fault. A winner wouldn't waste their time writing **** like that, because they'd be too busy winning.

Money and success will make you happy.
I was not taught this...who teaches this?

Being beautiful is an obligation.
What?

Being fat is the worst thing that could happen to you.
No, but it's not good either. You are fat, that is now obvious.

College will be a magical la-la land where you will finally be happy.
Well...I was happy before. So you were an emo in HS, got it. And college is a magical la-la land.

Men don’t like strong, opinionated women.
No, men don't like women who always think they are right even when they're wrong. They will put up with this proportionately to your hotness. You are not hot(see previous), so any opionions will be filtered.

Being gay is wrong.
Yup.

Never ask a guy out.
see "not hot".

Never have sex with someone you’re not dating seriously.
True, but "married to" instead of "dating seriously".

Casual sex will make you depressed, and a ****.
This was not addressed, and doesn't need to be addressed if previous is covered.

Intelligent people are better than nonintelligent people.
Yes.

Your parents know best.
"better than you" and you've got it right.

Family comes before friends.
Yes.

You should be willing to sacrifice anything for your family.
"a lot" but not "everything". Also noted that you have daddy issues.

Fitting in is important.
No, but being socially aware and considering others in your actions is...which you obviously do not do.

If you’re upset, you’re probably being too sensitive.
I'm good with this. Also known as the "get over yourself" rule, which (again) you obviously can't do.

Your friends should come from your cultural/ethnic/religious group.
Where is this taught except in Religious Cults? I go to a fairly fundamental Christian church and this has never been the case. Even in the 70s and 80s we were diverse and welcoming to other races. Besides honkeys, we had a large Latino and Black constituency. So...you have racist parents. Got it!

If a guy likes you, he will let you know. And if he doesn’t, he’s a wimp anyway.
SO VERY TRUE.

Your career should be as high-powered as possible.
Meh.

Your husband should make as much or more money than you.
Are you anti-money? Tell you what - take the money he makes that is more than you and send it my way. Everybody wins.

It’s okay to let men do things for you rather than learning how to do them yourself.
Division of labor is how this country was built.

Never, ever trust another woman. She will stab you in the back at the first opportunity.
SO VERY TRUE. Especially for people that know you.

If someone doesn’t like you, you should probably ask yourself what you’re doing wrong.
Good place to start.

If your boyfriend is unhappy, you should try to make him happy.
And if you are unhappy, he should try to make you happy. Which is why you don't have a boyfriend.

Politics doesn’t matter anyway.
YUP.

Everyone can tell how many men a woman has slept with just by looking at her.
Not true. You just wait until she creates a list like this and you'll know a lot more than that.

Your clothing should always “flatter” your figure.
No, your clothing should make you look terrible. What?

Sex can only be one of two things: Dangerous, or Special and to be saved for The Right Person.
Should be one thing--saved for spouse. So close!

Getting ahead is more important than sticking to your principles.
You obviously hate principles, so what difference does it make?

You can always just choose to be happy.
This is almost always true. There are cases of clinical depression, but true depression has nothing to do with circumstances. If you are unhappy because of your situation, this is not depression. This is being a whiny beeyoch. See also "get over yourself".

I'm sure we would all take issue with a few items on that list, but I will say that had this chica listened to her parents more she would be better adjusted and not whining about them on the internet.

thebloomer sounds like a homophobic, prudish, sexist ******bag that's probably a lot of fun at parties.
