I wonder if the following Toronto Craigslist ad got any takers:

Ladies: are you tired of big dicks??? Then, you can try me!!! (T.O.)

Second-wavers should be all over the guy, no?

sounds like a big dick obsessed with a small dick.

reminds me of a friend that had a guy trying to hook up with her say that he was cool because he was an alcoholic.

are you saying that having a small penis is like being an alcoholic?

no, that men are often horribly oblivious.

Would you also criticize someone who said they were an actuary, or a marathon runner, or a doctor in Africa?

are they insecure, self-obsessed dicks? then yes. not sure i understand your correlation though.

I don't know, I find it difficult and unreliable to infer a man's characters based on a single short speech act. But you seem better at it, so I suggest you try to answer the question you posed yourself. The correlation? What I'm asking is whether being an alcoholic is a less cool trait than any of the other three I listed.

well, i really wouldn't consider alcoholism a trait, which is really why it was so amusing in it's context. i could give you the context that wasn't a short speech act but that wouldn't be as funny as not giving it to you. i think men "hitting on" women is entirely pathetic rather than simply talking to them as if they were, you know, women and not prey. and i really don't deal in "cool" or thinking one's occupation reflects much of anything either.

During Bible class in the second grade our teacher often played a little game with us. She would quote an utterance from the book and have us answer three questions: "Who said this, to whom, and in what context?" I loved this game. Let's play it. I go first. Quote: "sounds like a big dick obsessed with a small dick."

I couldn't agree with you more in that phenomena pertaining to sex or gender possess much pathos. I wonder if anyone had ever thought of writing a book about some of the issues surrounding them. It would appear that there is quite a bit to be said.

okay. me, [ profile] sabotabby, the internets.

just to clarify, i could care less about the size of any man's penis or the size or shape of their bodies in any context. i don't think he comes off as open and positive about his body, i think he comes off as trying to angle women, which is just stupid and sad. being honest, being kind, and bringing a big heart will get you a lot more sex than a big dick. or maybe i'm giving women too much credit?

I, too, could - hypothetically at least - care much less for physical attributes. As for you, I believe you intended to say you could not have, which is, no doubt, an admirable stance, even as it appears that in this specific case it may be properly classified under the label of playa hating.

Pertaining to the question with which you end, I can think of no better source to fish for answers in than erotic experience with women, an abundance of which I heartily wish be bestowed on you, even as I am not free of all trace of concern that some of the opinions you hold, a fraction of the practices I imagine you steadfastly adhere to, and perhaps even the company I envision with my mind's eye you keep may all potentially serve as - hopefully insignificant - obstacles to the achievement of said experience.

oh pray tell, oh do say what opinions you think i hold, what practices you think i adhere to, and what company you feel i keep?

the weary laws of physical attraction, so intertwined into our very beings, so very cumbersome, yet abide we must! alas! it appears both my eyes have dropped from their very sockets and further, my feet have placed themselves atop my eyes like mighty objects of crushing pressure! surely, i will never love, surely there is nothing left but to wither. all is lost... all is lost... it's all i've ever written.

So that's what's happening on your icon. Well, apparently, somewhere between the feet and the spurting bloody eye pulp there is still some room for hope.

O rly?

It's not a good or happy thing thing to be an alcoholic, so only an idiot would use it to come off cool. That should have been rather self-evident.

(And no, to head off straw men at the pass, I'm not saying that recovering alcoholics should never have relationships ever again and should be lonely the rest of their days.)

And what is a good or happy thing to be, in your opinion?

Well to tell someone who you are trying to date? Probably what music you listen to, what languages you speak, interesting places you've been. Maybe talking about common interests instead of trying to impress with cheap ironic gags, talking about all your health problems and calling them cool or talking about her tits?

Just, you know, maybe?

How utterly counter-revolutionary. The things you list are precisely what ultra-patriarchal gentlemen would talk about with women. They'd impress them with their wits and skills until the ladies didn't want to hear anymore, and then some. But we, the liberated progressives, know how awfully wrong, hypocritical and class-immobilizing such an approach is. What about the men who don't have any talents or skills to impress ladies with because they didn't grow up in a home that fostered them? Are they to remain hapless and miserable? Are those of us who were born into alcoholism, addiction and violence to be judged, condemned and rejected? True inclusion surely demands discarding old patterns of courtship, realizing that we're all in it for the tits, and speaking of them and them alone.

Ok, either you are trolling, or you are an alcoholic and someone struck a nerve.

No one need be impressive. They just need to actually have something in common, be it monster truck rallies, supporting a given sports team, liking a style of music, dumpster diving, what have you.

But you are a reading-comprehensionless troll. I said above, I'm not saying people who are alcoholics don't deserve relationships. I said only that it's not cool to be an alcoholic, it's an awful disease that's hard to overcome and people are idiots if they play that up like it's cool. But, former alcoholics can talk about something else on first conversation and work their way up to it.

Like for example the character Fritz on "The Closer". He had a successful relationship with Brenda Lee that began with a friendship and good conversation and blossomed into love. As they got to know each other more, he told her about it.

You forgot to include the possibility that I have a small dick. I mean look at the number of comments I left under this entry - there's clearly some insecurity issues here.

Alcoholics are the true poets of life, everyone knows that. Awful disease is when a person holds a dull steady job and maintains an equally dull family life, with regular lapses into dull vacations.

My personal experience is that the funny ads get way more replies. Of course that was long ago in a galaxy far away, so my data may not exactly apply to this case.
