When I started in college, my first major was “undecided.” I could have declared a different major, but why beat around the bush. I didn’t know what I wanted to do. Anyway, part of being undecided is that you have to take courses based on what you think you would be interested in. So my freshman year, other than the “generic subject (English, math, history), I took a business class.
This class introduced me to the term “M.R.S. degree.” Many of the women in the class were just trying to catch a husband. I had heard about this, but I thought it was part of the men’s distorted world (along with real men don’t eat quiche). Anyway, I endured the class, and afterwards, I thought to myself: (1) why hook up with someone who has this boring of a work life (unless the bedroom diversions make up for it), and (2) unless the US gets overthrown by communists, I will never take a business class again.
So my subject this morning is a stretch for me, because I learned with is that freshman business intro class. I am going to talk about “supply and demand.” And if I screw something up, don’t tell me. I’m not blond so I am a little sensitive to my inadequacies. Basically it works this way – when demand outstrips supply, prices increase. When supply is abundant, then prices are forced lower. And I am not just talking about true supply and demand – but also perceived supply and demand (check out gas prices and you can see that perceived supply (or scarcity) can drive up prices on its own).
Now I don’t want to talk about oil, guns or butter today. I want to talk about nookie. What else, one may say. To that, I again say “Back off.” I am a good Catholic girl. For centuries, men perceived nookie as being in tight supply (hey, funny remark unintended; tight nookie – the blog is practically writing itself this morning). And a big “thank you” to the Church – I like that rule about no sex until marriage. Again, driving down the perceived supply. Less nookie, then nookie is more valuable. And that’s what I am talking about. Bracelets, necklaces, rings. Hardware. I am not talking about “dinner and a show.” Prostitution has been illegal in most western societies, but with a nod and a wink, we all know that free nookie has also been a commodity.
Problem is, girls (women) are giving it away now. And it starts young. I have heard stories about “friends with benefits,” and other than the good feeling, these girls get nothing. In previous ages, we are talking about sparkly gifts. Cha-ching. Now the market is being flooded with free nookie, and women are getting screwed. Another pun, but seriously, if you want to hold out for more than a pop tart, the guy goes to the next woman. Heck, she might pay for dinner and still put out.
All this “Women’s lib” crap has been really bad for women. I mean, we could already vote, our wages as compared with men’s wages has not really increased, and now, women are giving away the one thing men want! Nookie. We have lost our freekin’ power. And we don’t even notice.
I am not saying “no sex until marriage.” Just don’t talk about it. Let men think that there is a pussy scarcity. That is all I ask. Heck, maybe we should blame these sucky economics classes. They are so boring, and women are either not taking them, they are really looking to catch a man and don’t listen to the lectures, or they are not applying the subject. I don’t know which to believe. All I know is that my puss has been devalued by not only my peers, but by the younger generation that will put out for a cheese burger. Yikes.
