Career Paths...

Work went pretty fast last night. I did STD's all night. What's an STD? Well, it's what it sounds like, it's a sexually transmitted disease.

Now, it's all confidential and I wouldn't say, see your test results and tell you I'm sorry or anything. But I will reveal some statistical information. There are a lot of 11 year olds having sex to the point of needing STD testing! See why I don't want kids? (one of the bazillion reasons) I thought boys were gross still when I was 11!

Bubba got a new job at a vet clinic in my old 'hood. It sounds like a really nice place!! It's a way closer than the hospital she use to work at, from my house. So in an emergency, I might venture that way. Unless it's a bunny emergency, I gotta go to a THIRD hospital.

Speaking of jobs. We got on the topic of strippers last night. This was about a 45 min discussion. I just think, it's wrong, because it de-sensitizes men to it, and makes it normal. Like, being naked is no big deal. To me, it's private. Not shameful, but something you do with someone you love and trust. Not strangers. My opinion is mine, and it won't change. His is his and it wont change. He got on the topic of "there are several KINDS of strippers, some of them give others a bad name". That made me laugh. They all take their clothes off for money. You won't convince me its respectable to do because you have kids, or are going to school. There is strippers and there is exotic dancers he said. Um, there is taking your clothes off for money, and there is taking your clothes off for money. Call it what you want. I'll call it what I want.

If I can take my ass to 2 jobs every day, anyone else can. My mom raised 3 kids, working retail, about 7/hr and we weren't on welfare. I think I respect my mom more for doing it on a shoestring budget, than I ever would knowing she took her clothes off for men. ...gee, FOR ME? Thanks for teaching me that when all hope is lost, I can still shake my ass and objectify myself. My momma taught me that I had to work hard for what I want, there is no such thing as 'easy money'. (just easy girls. ohhhhh!)

It has nothing to do with the fact that I don't have the body of a stripper. (But i know some places that I'd probably fit right in at....) My body is not public property. I'd still feel the same way. It's my values. I respect myself. I'm so special, only a chosen few get to see my goods! LOL.

I tried to equate it to my being in a room with a bunch of naked men but CP said he had no problem w/me going to a male review. The key word here is review. Not stripper. The men are far different than the women. I've been to both. But, it's my opinion. I feel like once you start flashing your shit all over town, it isn't meaningful to get naked for someone. To me, it's a big deal.

Like violence on TV. Sex on TV. All of it is worse than it has ever been, but it isn't that bad to us, cus we are use to it. We grew up on it. The old timers, think its horrible. Porn is an entirely different topic to be tackled another day. But my take on this in the short, is, it's not live.

I said this before, but in some countries, it's ok to eat monkeys. I never would, but if you are raised that way to you it's perfectly normal. Some people won't eat cows, I do sometimes. To them it's disgusting, cus they were raised differently. To each his own I say, but I won't ever accept it. That is my right.

In the words of the great Chris Rock: "Get a job, I got two you can't get one?"

Now, maybe you will all get that stupid song stuck in your heads like I did......"I'm in love with a stripperrrrrrr"

psss. Have I mentioned how "Lost" is taking over my life? And, I can't function without trying to figure out, what is going on with those people? It's a TV show. I need therapy!

Today's Question:

What's your take on strippers?

Anyone can get a job at McDonalds or anywhere, why take your clothes off for money? It is a self disrepect issue.

hot for jr. said...

I'm glad you mentioned having gone to a male review, because I seem to remember you enjoying the hot, oiled up guys as much as the rest of us. I do have to say you weren't involved at the time, or if you were it was with the future ex husband so it doesn't matter!!
By the way all, no hot date last night. He had to cancel for a family emergancy but said he should be back in town mid week next week so we'll try again. Keep the positive thoughts coming - I'm still nervous, but looking forward to it more now!
