You know what really grinds my gears? Cheating, in any way, but especially the romantic sense.
That is also something that really grinds my gears.
If you are in a relationship with another person, you have practically no 'right' to sleep with another person. If you want to sleep with another person than your significant other, you shouldn't be a in a relationship. You can have fantasies all you want, nobody's stopping you from having those - fantasies can be quite helpful, mostly people imagine things they'd never do anyway - but don't actually do
anything.You know what really grinds my gears about that bit? The excuses given after you have cheated.
"You know I love you!" means nothing in this situation. If you love someone, you don't sleep with another person. "I was drunk, I didn't know what I was doing!" also bullshit, as you should have known your limit and stopped drinking before you approached it too closely. And alcohol doesn't make you do things you never wanted to do - it lowers your inhibition of doing things you wanted to do in the first place
So all you cheaters, wherever you are, if you are reading things, I hope you feel ashamed for what you did. I hope your partner leaves you and doesn't forgive you that. And even if you get back together for whatever reason, I hope you still won't be forgiven. As VCM said, that's a breach of trust and how can you trust someone again if they already broke it before?You know what really grinds my gears? Teen-Pregnancy due to own stupidity.
This somewhat goes hand-in-hand with 'having sex too early' although I am quite aware that everybody has their own personal idea of 'too early'. I don't really care if you start having sex when you're 13 years old, just make sure your body and your mind
are ready for it. And use some fucking protection!!
"You can't get pregnant on your first time", bullshit!
"You can't get pregnant before your first period", worst bullshit ever!
Those are the type of idiots who didn't pay attention in sex ed. What does menstruation mean? You had a fertilizable egg hatch! So if you have sex shortly before your first period, you goddamn well can get pregnant! And it doesn't matter how many times you've had sex, you end up having an ovulation/can ejaculate sperm, you goddamn well can end up knocked up!
Condoms are not
that expensive! Years ago, I was curious how much they cost and bought them and a pack of 10 cost about 5€ which is pretty cheap. The pill is also very easy to obtain. Those are the two safest ways to avoid pregnancy - and STDs, in the case of condoms - but if you really can't stand the thought of taking a pill for 21/28 days of the month.... you shouldn't be having sex!! Fuck other contraceptives, if you can't stand a thought like that, don't have sex!
(This also goes for those who do use condoms, but because things have gotten so hectic lately and because boy/girlfriend is feeling oh-so-lonely right now because you're too busy, you end up not using condoms "just that one/few time(s)" and end up pregnant. They feel lonely, they can masturbate or learn themselves in some patience!)
And don't you dare
come crying to your parents afterwards and expect sympathy from them because you were too stupid to use protection. If I was your parent and that happened - aside from being deeply ashamed cause I would make sure you wouldn't turn out to be such an idiot - I'd let you have an earful and then leave you
to make the decision on what to do. You think you're old enough to have sex? Then you're old enough to deal with the consequences!
(Also a problem I have with this one scene I saw on an ad for Teenage-Moms where the girl was saying to her mother, "I am a mother and
I'm a teenager!" No!! No, you are not
!! The minute you decided to give birth to that baby and take care of it, you willingly gave up
being a teenager!!)
Sorry for the excessive punctuation, but that just really grinds my gears!
