I haven't been posting in a while as I haven't found anything BIG to post about, as well as my life's kinda wearing me down (job stuff, faith struggles, put in the "friend zone permanently by someone I thought was a 'seraphic single' who'd be great to date).
Anyways, I read Seraphic Singles, a blog by Dorothy Cummings McLean of the Catholic Register fame who's written a book for single Catholic women of the same name (also called other titles in the USA and Poland). While her writing is mainly for women and it's consistently solid (with a few personal disappointments opinion-wize as a Nice Catholic Bachelor hoping to shed that status), there are times that she writes a post that really is something to not just her female majority, but also to me as a male reader. Well she did it again. Read this post:
Reading it, it has some lovely and funny quips a la Bridget Jones in there, and it puts a smile on my face to hear she demanded on her first date with her husband, get this, BEER AND MEAT PIE! Now that's a woman! I personally hate it when they just only want to order salads cause they are afraid of gaining even one pound. For one, just enjoy yourself! Don't be a sad sack, especially if I am paying for the meal. 2nd, I prefer a healthy to curvy (and I can even tolerate a few extra pounds) woman and truly most men do regardless of the stupid magazines and er, darker stuff suggests. If only there was a Seraphic a good number of years or younger around me like this, I'd be sold just on the meat pie and pints!
However, the real good content of the post is how Seraphic delves into how women hating men (and well vice versa too if one really reads into the post) is destructive and is not the way to go. Further, she understands the whole feminism thing. Plus, she also shows how she, herself, overcame the androgyny and got herself back to Catholic virtue.
I highly recommend both sexes read this post. For the women, it is a great one to keep coming back to, especially when lesser members of my sex act like total douchebags. As for men, read it to give you hope when you are rejected by women, but also that they are not all corrupted by the societal anti-Catholic, androgynist brainwashing machine of society. Women CAN change and actually enjoy us as "the cappucino of life" as Seraphic always says.
