I woke up this morning to Dee's message." Guys, I can so relate to the characters in SATC, they're a lot like us" (I'm not a huge fan of sitcoms and don't really keep a track of them.SATC,is like a complete no-no for me. However,thanks to my friends I know the characters in these sitcoms more than the characters at my workplace. :-p)
Okay.Before I confuse you with making this post seem like a smart-ass comparison between my friends and the show, lemme clarify it deals with 'Sex and the city', literally.
Off late I've realized we (most of us I mean) have a skewed outlook towards sexuality. To an extent, that even marriage is advocated for legitimate sex (headsmack).
Don't get me wrong, I'm not advocating promiscuity. I'm just trying to draw parallels between the contradiction of our culture and practices. On one hand we epitomize spirituality, on the other hand we practice the exact opposite of it. While we talk a lot about soul, when it comes to relationships, we succumb to perceived practical issues .
Marriage has a lot to do with amorous feelings BUT we'd like to portray it as a K serial episode, where the story revolves around "sanskaari" boy-girl/family union. Somehow, "I'm not attracted" is not considered a good enough excuse to say no. I ask, why? Pliss?? Can you give me one good reason as to Why attraction should be last in the list? Don't most cases of infidelity stem from attraction?
Also,women are assumed to be needy and vulnerable. The provocateurs of this typecast are specimens ranting about being used after break-ups. Used-aaaaarghhh! I never understand this. How is one party getting used in anything that has mutual consent?
Getting-used-alert specifically to women perplexes me. Men don't get attached, is it?
I feel, women need to stop looking at themselves as sex-objects. At some level, intimacy has been confused with exploitation and that I think, causes insecurities leading to deep-rooted ego issues and mud slinging.Stupid, very stupid.
Women are protected from making mistakes with an intensity, that's humiliating, if you ask me. Are we plastic barbies who'd be broken into pieces if the wrong boy picks it up? (Eye-rolls)
The reason I love my friends is the way they celebrate their existence. The pride they take in accepting their flaws and the burning will with which they turn those flaws into beauties. Women who love without boundaries and are yet prepared for the worst. Who've never let their self-esteem get hurt by any kind of issues. My lovely ladies. Yes. You can relate to any character from any goddamned sitcom of this world but the fact that you nurture your being with heads held high-honestly,sincerely and soulfully,makes me want to create a sitcom out of your crazy-characters! :)
This one's for all women who make me proud and men who accentuate the beauty of such women with their depth and understanding.
Cheers~~~ To many more silly messages and brighter days!
And as for Sex and the city~~~~~~ You need better tuning. Really!
