A Man Emailed His Wife A Spreadsheet That Logged All The The Times She'd Said No To Sex »

This is it. This is pretty much the pentacle of male privilege in the U.S. When a husband whole heartedly believes that he is a victim to unfair treatment by his wife because she denied him sex 26 times in a month.  

When a man think his pleasures is more important than a women NOT WANTING TO HAVE SEX and since they are married he has every right to her body and by denying him access to her body she is denying him said right. 

He thinks her “excuses” for having sex are also unreasonable. And what are some of those “excuses”?

-She was too tired to have sex.

-She was sick.

-She was too drunk.

-She felt tender (in vaginal region) after having sex the other day.

-They didn’t have enough time because they had somewhere to be. (Which means he was fully prepared to have enough time to get himself off INSIDE his wife while knowing they wouldn’t have enough time for her pleasure)

These are all unreasonable “excuses”

 I saw the Reddit thread, and most people were siding with him because she was committing the unacceptable crime of not having sex with him, and even among those who were more sympathetic were starting with ”he did it in an immature way…BUT” and it’s just so depressing how much people hate women that are not ”fulfilling their purpose” of being fucked by men. 

The comments on the Buzzfeed link are full of women defending the guy.

It makes me so fucking sick.

Fucking disgusting.  This woman is being used as a blow up doll and how dare she not fuck him at his beck and call.  Oh my god.  Gross.  My husband would be just as disgusted because he’s not a piece of shit.

It’s honestly frightening how many people think this is okay. Ugh ugh ugh.

Anonymous said: My mother's side came from county Cork and my father's came from Donegal, my mother's during the famine and my father's during the 20's civil war. Of course, they came to America. I've been trying to learn Gaeilge as a way to reconnect with my heritage, but I've encountered a fair amount of ridicule from some folk on that point - that it is my "heritage," and only that. It's somewhat disheartening. I'd love to see the Donegal Gaeltacht and the whole country, really, but I'm a tad hesitant now --

irishthings:

(cont) “— as I’m afraid that I’ll be lumped in with others who casually reference Irish descent. Maybe I’m being too sensitive, but it seems almost hypocritical to me; can I turn to someone and tell them that they are not an American? Of course not. If I know my blood and dearly wish to know the soil that spawned it, well, is it at all possible for anyone to tell me that I don’t? Is there really such a prevalent distaste for Americans who cite Irish heritage in Ireland?”

Ah now, don’t you be worrying! The distaste for people who cite Irish heritage usually applies to people who claim silly things or have an embarrassing touristy attitude, like going on about leprechauns, or claiming that their great great grandfather’s second cousin could play the tin whistle or something. If you genuinely want to connect with your roots and learn Gaeilge, then go for it! Some people might still ridicule you, but to hell with them, you’re doing this for you, and not for anyone else. Many people will be more than happy to hear that you’re taking an interest in the language, too!

I say go for it, and good luck!  

^ This is for the stuff the husband and I read online.  There is a lot of hate for Americans who claim their heritage, particularly Italian and Irish heritage.  Which is weird to me because you can’t pretend your bloodline isn’t what it is, but I believe it’s more of a strange anti-American thing. 

This reply above is the attitude I’ve noticed from the people we encountered. People constantly ask you where you are from and ask questions. 

Ireland seems to be super into researching ancestry.  They have exhibits about the diaspora and half of the Riverdance show was about it.  A chunk of my Dublin guide featured where to research your family and website that will help.

Both so different but seems so natural together.
The first, let a whole generation to dream
The second, made their dream come true

Irish dancing is amazing.  Ah. maz. ing. The husband and I got to see Riverdance 20th anniversary in Dublin and wow. Fantastic.

Somewhere in Annapolis was advertising Irish dance lessons and I FREAKED until I realized it was for kids only.  Blehhhh. I’d probably be terrible at it but I’d love to learn.
