You know what I am thinking about right now? I'm thinking a lot about the disadvantages of having more women on Xanga. Specifically, I'm thinking about what usually happens on a blog right after someone breaks up with them.
Surely, one of us, in our lifetime, has heard a woman spout about her relationship woes. How it all fell apart, how they must be moving on, what he did, and all of that. The typical response is that we think the guy is an asshole for letting her go. We condemn him and his existence and we hope that he learns from what he did to her. What I didn't realize all those times I have done it was, "What did the girl do?" Surely, the relationship ended for a reason, and the reason doesn't always fall squarely on their exes (most of the time, the men). "Two sides to one story," right?
That is the advantage to girls having their own blog here. If there are less guys on here, that means less of a chance that people, including at least one of their exes, will call them out on their bullshit. It doesn't really seem right for it to be like that. Yes, some men will lie, some men will resort to extremes...but who wouldn't? Heartbreak will make people do some crazy shit to prove they aren't ready to handle everything that comes with it.
Everybody wants equality, but then again, plenty of people, including women, like to play the victim in these types of things. How hard will it be to just let these things go and call it a failure or just a case of trial and error? Why do we have to involve other people in this?
