lolfail

As happens from time to time, a friend of mine recently sent me a link to the following picture, accompanied by the word "Wow..."


Ah, nothing like this epic FAIL of a picture to remind me that as a woman, I am nothing without a man . And that if I should suffer the misfortune of being "dumpd" by a man, I will become an emotional wreck incapable of doing anything but stuffing my face with ice cream. (I assumed heterosexuality here because of the obvious play on the moping girlfriend image.)

Oh, to be a female-identifying person...

I have NEVER felt the need to binge on ice cream because I'm without a man. And I hate the stereotype that the boyfriend dumps the girl and then she is thrown into a deep depression.

Hence the "Wow..."

I haven't felt the need to binge either. Maybe we're not real women!!

I am a comfort eater. But this is entirely due to the stigma attached to women eating large amounts: I feel like I need an excuse.

Amelia said...

I'm a comfort eater, too. :-/

Interesting how I'll go to such lengths to find a reason to eat more...

I'm a comfort shopper, but it's always stores that are in impeccable order like bookstores or office supply stores. I blame that on working at Office Max in high school, though.

So, basically, being upset and unhappy after separating from your boyfriend is "bad"? How so?

@Anon:

I must have missed the part where anyone said that being upset when someone breaks up with you is bad.

Because it's not.

The assumption that when women are broken up with, they go into some crazed emotional state that can only be cured by ice cream (this is something that is commonly commented on in our society) is what was being discussed here.
