Screw your way to the top, ladies

by

I was talking to a somewhat older man the other day. I’d put him to be in his fifties. He was very open-minded and had no problem with lesbians, gays, bisexuals, pansexuals, smart women, even stay-at-home dads. Finally he had to ruin it.

Him: What would you like to be when you leave school?
Me: Well I’m thinking of getting into politics.
Him: So you’re going to sleep with all the men to earn your rank instead of getting a respectable job, like nursing or waitressing? Or maybe stay home and look after your man and kids?
Me: I hate kids. I don’t want kids.
Him: Oh. You’ll change your mind when your a bit older, all women want kids, all women want to please their husband.
Me:

Obviously a female can’t do politics without having to sleep with everyone to earn her success. Strange thing is we have a female PM at the moment, and I highly doubt SHE slept with important people to get there. Or maybe I just had a moment and actually said I wanted to be a high class prostitute… but I doubt it.

I guess I should do the ‘settle down with kids’ thing and forget my dreams because it’s #MFIF

… No.

    Wait a minute, the guy who said this was previously fine with non-heterosexuals and stay-at-home dads? I mean, this sort of bigoted nonsense is always idiotic, but it isn’t usually this internally inconsistent.

    ADS: I wonder how he would also grok a lesbian leader. “Sleep way to top…er…ummm *head explosion*”

      😄 Win.

      I really am confused, though. How do you go from being fine with smart women and stay-at-home dads to saying that all women must be whores, lower-tier workers, or homemakers? How do you go from being fine with lesbians to saying that all women want to please their husband?

      It’s a shame this guy’s head didn’t really explode the way sci-fi computers always do when presented with anything vaguely resembling a logical inconsistency.

    Not sure at all. I walked away confused and slightly annoyed that I’d wasted my time. Looking back I really should have pointed out the stupidity in what he said, but oh well.

    The most annoying thing hearing idiotic prattle like that is that I, as a woman, have largely only gotten successful in my political career by being a workaholic and not really ever getting to date very much at all, and definitely not by boffing my way through life, as is the bizarro expectation.

    You’d think with the number of times I have been told that over the last 10 years, I’d be used to it by now, but it still pisses me off to no end…
