Teenage Women in Their Thirties

Just making the mark this June, I am now officially a "TWIT", but at least I'm not a teenage woman approaching thirty. This Australian article tries to paint independent women holding to their freedom and youth as a positive, but their obviously derogatory acronym might give away the political sentiment, which is of course, personal. Women in Japan choosing to stay single had a similar nickname when I lived in Tokyo five years ago, some play on an insect (read parasite). The focus here is on youth, and whether it's a SATC (outdated and non-existent) Manolos fantasy or berry picking, playing in the sand and wearing flip-flops (as one friend commented when I first posted this article on Facebook), the point is, as it always is in Third Wave Feminism-that we get to choose! Choices, choices,choices is the footnote for those not acquainted with contemporary women's lib.I opt to live my life as an adventure without deadlines, and I also choose babies, when the time is right. But what would the true male equivalent be, the stud to our slut? A "Peter Pan" as the article says? An over-thirty and very youthful pal suggested DOUCHE. Dudes only understand childish habits, eternally.

what the fuck would you know about men?
Probably as much as I know about the inner workings and 'poetic mysteries of the female psyche'(YUCK!)- Which is nexto nothing.
An above average sized clit is not a penis
and doesnt lend itself as a magical instrument of fleshy intuition.
Just as my nipples and supporting pectorals dont amount to lactating breasts or beholden me to razor sharp insights into what it is to be a woman.
Fuck feminism too.
Walk into a mens room and then go your Ladies' room and tell me who has it better?
Equality has nothing to do with whats twixt your legs but in what makes us tick.

Oh girl,
lm so happy to be your toilet.
Its my pride and joy,
Take it all out on me
My only aim in life is to take what you've got to give
Open mouthed, wide and gaping all devouring fetid pool of waste
Half chewed partly digested chunks of excrement, Streaming jets of salty yellow excess
My love is your graveyard
A swift wipe and a flush goodbye
Ah, bitter adieu!

POMP might have to require valid approved commentators, like our brothers and sister sites since "Anonymous" is encouraging 1997 chatroom vent-rage, and bad teenage poetry. I just hope it's not an inside job. But thank you all for your words!-A. Pinsker

i agree funny but a little TMI and inadvertently more revealing of a scarred angry person than anything else

If you begin to censor what will be left?
A series of unseemly and unbelievable congratulatory pats on the back?
All of which smack of an 'inside job'
But, yes I agree, censorship is always a very good idea.
It alwaysaves us from unsightliness and honesty of opinion.
