The Female Ego
Today I was pondering the recent 2012 London Olympics contreversey (certainly not a serious one) involving Lebron James and U.S Swimmer Lauren Perdue. Below is a picture of Perdue:
^^^^Isn't she lovely? Well, sort of in that "I'd donkey punch her" kind of way...^^^
Shortly after, Perdue tweeted the following: https://twitter.com/UVA/status/228606976576344064.
"Lebron James just invited me to dinner... um wuuuutttt?!?"
And then, chaos ensued. It was all over the media. No one quite knew what to make of it other than Lebron, an engaged NBA Champion, just got publicly turned down.
But what strikes me is how excited this Lauren seems that she was "invited to dinner" by Lebron himself. In fact, to me, the tweet is reeking of an egotistical, high-and-mighty, "look at me", uppity, cunty, shallow, junior high, arrogant stench that is both vomit educing and all-to-common among today's American female.
What gets me is, this was not the only girl Lebron asked out on that night (probably). Pictured below is Lebron with yet another female Olympian.
He most likely casually offered to eat with her that night in the dining hall as well. Lauren was clearly not the only one, and yet her level of excitement over such a small proposition is hysterical; I'd expect the same reaction from a girl in middle school. "OMG! I just got asked out wtf?!?!? What is a poor girl to do?" Lather in the pool of egomaniac attention whoring, of course.
This is yet another example of the despicable way women react when approached and propositioned for dates. It isn't enough to appreciate the offer; they get off on the power trip, the advantage given to them by being catered to. They revel in the attention, enjoy rejecting the man, and can't live without bragging about it to their friends (or in this case, the whole world through twitter).
