Don't get me started on this.
In my High School, there were some rich girls that had what I describe as "Privilaged Princess Syndrome". Once we had a gathering in a room where there weren't enough seats, so several people were standing up. It was a first come-first serve thing until one of the PPS's scoffed before saying in the most
annoying bitchy way possible.
"A girl is standing up," as if to assume that some guy would stand up to let her friend sit down.
Naturally, I immediately put in my word in and mentioned that it was rude, saying "Why should we stand up for you?"
Then somebody said, "It's courtesy," as if I was the dumbest person in the world.
That only infuriated me even more. I felt this girl wasn't entitled to a seat she had made no effort to claim until after those who had
claimed them had sat down, and she had not worked any harder than the rest of us, she was only being a spoiled brat. However, as I seemed to be the only one who saw the problem, I had to let it go. I felt that people who all out demand
courtesy should not be given any if it has no merit, and yet playing the gender card somehow makes it fair? I just cannot stand that idea.
Also, when it comes to divorces, the mother is automatically the one who has a better chance of getting the children (In America, at least), even if the father gets along better with the children than she does. I remember seeing a report long ago that ran an online poll as they showed the story, and 75% of the viewers said that the father deserved custody, but the mother got them, anyway.
Yeah, WTF. Mom and I watch those shows religiously, and it amazes me how many mothers are entitlement bitches. It's like... "well I had the baby and even though I don't want it and am making the father take care of it, I still shouldn't have to pay for it." Please. You don't deserve an award for having the kid and dumping it off because you still want to party and be young. if anything, you deserve to be punished.
I agree. It's not like she's the only woman to do so (Give birth, that is). Also, if they were still married while she was pregnant, has she already forgotten the one who probably went out in the middle of the night to buy her 15 pounds of Lima Beans to fill her cravings? (My dad sure did...)
My parents are divorced, as well, but they played fast and loose with the child custody, not really caring if we spend an extra night at mom's or go on a trip with dad. I feel lucky in that regard. They knew their marriage was going wrong and took care of it early.
A double standard that annoys me is when women clamor for equal rights and then insist that the man pays or in regards to military service. These women are the "weaker sex" when it suits them.
Another common trait of the PPS's. These people want to have their cake and eat it, too, and it just disgusts me. If you want to have equal rights, you'd better have equal responsibility, too.
