One of my favorites is Sons of Anarchy. It's dirty and foul and I freakin love it. Recently, the story line took a turn that didn't just make my mom angry...but completely disgusted her. The lead female character has taken a new direction. She has started to sleep around and not just with the opposite sex. Basically she gets drunk or high and screws whatever is closest.
Clearly this is not a show I watch with my children, nor is it a compass for my direction in life.
It's purely for entertainment.
Lets just say she was participating in intercourse in a less than attractive position for television. Later in the episode you find out that she also got it on with a couple of younger women (just wait I'm getting to the point of this post)
My mom freaked out and has decided that she no longer wants anything to do with the character (there goes the fictional friendship) and told me
" She's a HOEBAG SKANK!"To this I completely cracked up. Seriously who says things like that in 2012.....my 65 year old mother does.
This statement brought on a whole conversation. Because this character has been gang raped, nearly killed, beaten with in an inch of her life....you'd think she had earned a little forgiveness. And this character had slept around before. So what gives? Why is it so bad this time?
I had to ask my mom if it was the addition of random sex with women. Which she denies
THIS POST IS IN NO WAY A STARTER FOR POLITICAL OR HATE RANTS. NOR AM I MAKING FUN OF MY MOM OR SAYING THAT SHE IS WRONG IN HER OWN BELIEFS OR FEELINGS. It is merely my own evaluation and contemplation on sexual relativity.
I have never discussed my sexual history with my mother
AND I AM NOT STARTING NOW BECAUSE SHE READS THIS BLOG
But she is aware that I was not a virgin when I got married. And she knows my friends and my beliefs on love without gender bias.
This whole hoebag skank thing left me thinking about just how relative sex is to each individual.
I know women who have been with only 1 man in their lives. Happy and fulfilled. I also know women whose conquests far exceed the parameters of what I perceive as a healthy sexually active adult.
I can't even get started on the men I know. Because I think we can all agree at least that there is a double standard for men. A man can sleep with 5 girls and it is normal and acceptable. A woman sleeps with 5 men and she's a whore.............oh wait that means I'm a.......never mind.
My point is that it is different for absolutely everyone. Where, When, Who, How many....everyone is different in what they feel is acceptable. I had never actually thought about it before. I have an incredibly inappropriate mind (which I clearly must get from my father) so I can turn nearly any conversation into some time of sexual inappropriateness. I also wasn't bothered by what the character was doing. In my mind she was just getting some stress relieved. Although I didn't really want to see THAT MUCH...but to each fictional person his own.
Maybe this post is my mind telling me it's time to go back to school . I clearly will have to study sociology and the effects of religion, family and education on personal sexual boundaries.
I mean my kids never leave me alone in the bathroom...EVER! Which means that shower or potty, they don't care. They just come right in. So because they see me naked and unafraid, does that mean that they will have less boundaries? That's a scary thought actually. My husband is ....I don't know a nice way to say "grab ass". So my kids have watched daddy walk by and smack my butt or take a handful.
(oh don't get outraged, this is hardly the worst thing I have ever posted on this blog! Did you see my pictures from this week?)
I believe it is because of this that when they want something they all have a habit of putting hands on my backside. It drives me nuts and they never get whatever it is they are asking for!
So if we have trained our kids to believe that if they grab my ass they'll see better results............
Who taught me that it was not that big of a deal for Gemma to get dirty with 2 hookers and and old pimp?Regardless of what we feel is ok for us, does that mean we are allowed to judge others and whatever they do behind closed doors? SIDEBAR: PLEASE KEEP THE DOORS CLOSED!
When I first became friends with my husband he gave me this big song and dance about all the things he thought were bad . Women who have cheated- DEAL BREAKER, People who believe in divorce- DEAL BREAKER, Chicks who have "experience"- DEAL BREAKER.....funny thing about all that. I told him my story and how I had cheated on someone I loved, because I was too chicken shit to do it the grown up way. I told him my mom had been divorced and married my dad and made me.(And funny enough both of his parents had been divorced and then made him) I told him I had more experience then I was comfortable sharing with my mother. After telling him all this......9 years together. I guess he decided to change the deal for me.
We all can grow and change......just sayin. You go Gemma you dirty hoebag! Go get yours!
