*sings* One of these things is not like the other...
The other day Brianna's little brother asked me, "Why do girls take so long to get ready in the morning?"
Me: "'Cause we want to actually look good. Don't you like it when girls look good?"
Little brother: "Guys don't do anything, we just get dressed and go."
Me: "Yeah, but see...hey, wait a second... You have a point. Why DO we girls have to try??"
Look at nature, people. The male cardinal is trying as hard as he can to be the brightest thing out there. The male lion is puffing his mane up for all he's worth. The male mallard is holding his head high and hoping to catch a female's eye.
The female animals don't really worry about looking good. They have their CHOICE of males. The males come to THEM. The females are ALREADY DESIRABLE. They don't have to DO anything; the males are the ones making the effort, striving to attract a mate.
So I got to thinking.
When did humans become the way we are? Who decided that the girls have to try harder? Who decided that guys can be hott in a T-shirt but girls need eyeliner? What business does a guy have picking out the "hott" girls when he hasn't even combed his hair?
Look to nature, people. Girls, you're beautiful. Take it from the female cardinal, you're desirable the way you are. Guys, it's not all up to us. Go get the 411 from your friendly neighborhood lion and take some initiative.
