Debunking a Popular Myth: Girls Just want to have Fun!!!


 

It was the 80’s and a music icon had yet to reach the zenith of her meteoric rise to global popularity.  Like many artist before and after, Cyndi Lauper had to deal with pressure from record label executives.  The record company had a lot of material they wanted her to record, but Cyndi knew that though she could write songs, the label wouldn’t be so amenable to let her write her own materials. In a stroke of genius Cyndi altered a lot of the songs that were thrown her way, often changing the lyrics to suit her. The best example of this lyrical alteration would be the platinum certified single “Girls Just Want to Have Fun“.  Lauper says the original lyrics of the song dealt more with a girl pleasing a man, and therefore she changed the lyrics, wanting the song to be more of an anthem as she felt the original song seemed misogynistic.

Introduction:

This song was instrumental in planting falsity into the mind of millions around the world; because of Ms. Lauper’s anthem many people feel that girls just want to have fun. I am writing to tell you that this is horribly false.  Girl’s just do not in fact want to have fun. I am about to debunk the latest bit of disinformation for free. I am in fact going to present you evidence that will help you view women in a totally different light.

What the Ladies Say

Franz Fanon had an interesting critique of communism. He said that a classless society is not a raceless society. Why do I bring this up well because words are deceiving.  When for instance someone says black-people the term is misleading. Depending on the continent, country, culture subculture it can have a different meaning. When we talk about women who do we mean? That subgroup  “women” is so wide a group. Nowadays our definitions of the sexes  is much more complex, its not simply about being born with either Lunch Special 1: Meat and 2 veg or Lunch special 2 the $10 dinner box.  One of the critiques of feminism was that it didn’t  recognize cultural, national and religious differences among the many types of women. The women who the feminist at least in this country  catered to were Caucasian women. In the U.S., the 19th Amendment, passed in 1920 gave women the right to vote.  The right to vote wasn’t  for women everywhere. native american women where not given citizenship until 1924; therefore could not vote until then. There was still Jim crow laws in the South that affected African American Women’s right to vote.

Rihanna

She wants you to

Make her feel Like she is the only Girl in the World Like She’s the only one that you’ll ever love. Like She’s the only one who knows your heart. 

If You are a rude boy  she wants  the following

  1. She wants to know if you “can get it up” and subsequently upon getting it up she wants to know if you  are “big enough”
  2. She wants you to take it
  3. She wants to give it to you harder, she wants to turn you out.

Listen to the Song Rude Boy
Listen to the Song Only Girl

Khia

She is very clear She wants you to  and I quote:

Just do it, do it, do it, do it, do it now
Lick it good suck this pussy, just like you should
Right now, Lick it good
suck this pussy just like you should
My Neck, my back
Lick my pussy and my crack

Listen to Khia My Neck, My back

Missy Elliot

She wants you to come prepared and I quote

Break me off, show me what you got 
Cause I don`t want, no one minute man

Listen to Missy’s One Minute Man

Avril Lavigne

She wants to know:

Why do you have to go and make things so complicated?
I see the way you’re acting like you’re somebody else gets me frustrated

Listen to Avril’s Complicated

Alanis Morissette

She wants you to know she has one hand in her pocket and is happy about that though she isn’t a pervert and self-polluting herself with that one hand. The Jury is out on weather or not she had cut huge hand fitting holes in the pocket before she put her hand in.

Listen to Alanis’ Hand In my Pocket

Sheryl Crow

She wants to soak up the sun and tell everyone to lighten up. I am telling you if you want to do this please use protection, UV glasses, spf 40- 200  depending on how pale you are and wear  a condom or stuff one in. You cannot be too careful.

Listen to Sheryl Crow’s Soak Up the Sun

Mariah Carey

She wants you to:

Spread your wings and prepare to fly 
For you have become a butterfly

This is really an invitation to snort cocaine so you can feel butterflys expectorating in your eyes when you breathe.

There is no link!!! Dont ever listen to this song

Shakira

Suerte que mis pechos sean pequenos 
why no los confundas con montanas

Wants you to be thankful her breast are small and humble (according to the English translation) because if they weren’t (small and humble) you would confuse them for mountains

One thing you cannot Deny

Everyone has their own definition of fun and one cannot take trite songs at face value. Every time I would ask my sort of current lady or past ladies questions like:  “what do you want to eat?” ” Where do you wanna go ?”  “When do you want to go?” etc I never got the answer: “MrMary’s Real Name I just wanna have fun.” Actually I usually hear:

  1. Remember those shoes we saw in the window, I love them but in a different color because I have some pants that I could wear that with , you know the ones ….
  2. I want you to talk more to me during that random  5 minute window of time  where I don’t have an attitude, or a gripe with you that I am not telling you, or information I am trying to clandestinely squeeze out you when you least expect it.
  3. I want to change the new curtains they dont match any more and look old  although they were bought 2 months ago during a sale
  4. We’ll go once I finish putting on my make up when will I be done? …I dont know how long would it take you to create a whole new face for yourself
  5. Nothing, nothing is wrong, I just look like I have a violent case of amoebic dysentery for no reason and my colon is goign to implode under the weight….

Conclusion

Everyone defines fun differently. Cyndi Lauper doesnt speak for all women and for all times. There are some women who do not want to have fun at all ( more often then not are called in our culture called divorcées) and this myth obviously makes it harder for them to  stew in their bitterness. A quick survey of what women themselves wanted clearly showed that they each wanted something different  and they each defined fun differently. Some of them actually wanted  people to sit out in the sun, lighten up and get skin cancer, other wanted you to remember that breasts and mountains do go together, hence the grand tetons in the American SouthWest (seriously look it up

(The origin of the current name is controversial. The most common explanation is that “Grand Teton” means “large teat” in French, named by either French-Canadian or Iroquois members of an expedition led by Donald McKenzie of the North West Company. However, other historians disagree, and claim that the mountain was named after the Teton Sioux tribe of Native Americans)

 While they sometimes may “wanna have fun” none, they certain never “just wanna have fun.” Do you see the difference between wanting to have fun and just wanting to have fun. Its quite different isn’t it?

Question for my female Readers

When You want to have fun, what do you do? and Do you just wanna have fun ?

  1. I think you got your pics mixed up, MrMary. Those girls seem to be sick/drunk/dumb…I don’t think any of them are having fun. 😛

    Fun could be lots of things;
    1. Playing D&D with my gaming group and finally doing enough Backstab damage with my 15th level Tiefling Rogue to put the hurt on the Elder Black Dragon we’ve been fighting for an hour.

    2. Staying at home alone to play Kingdoms of Amalur or Assassin’s Creed for a few hours. Usually naked…though I’ll wear slippers during the winter months.

    3. Cooking a really great meal for me and my FwB, followed by awesome sexy funtimes.

    4. Skipping the cooking and just having sexy funtimes. (Repeat as necessary.)

    5. Going to Gencon because FOUR DAYS OF GAMING AND WATCHING GAMES AND BEING IN BETAS AND DOING TRUE DUNGEON AND EATING CRAPPY CON FOOD AND STAYING UP SO YOU DON’T MISS A DAMN THING NO I HAVEN’T SLEPT IN FIVE DAYS WHY DO YOU ASK????

    6. Going for a hike on the awesome trail that my town just finished, and bringing a book that you’ve been wanting to read forever.

    7. Having more sexy funtimes…but with toys now included.

    8. Getting out my sketchbook and drawing whatever I see from my window while sipping Pinot Grigio cause I am just THAT classy.

    9. Sex. (Bet you didn’t see that coming!)

    10. I’d tell you, but then I’d have to kill you.

    • This was an awesome comment. I had to look up a lot o stuff on google: Dungeons and Dragons, GenCon, Kingdoms of Amalur. Being in Betas I couldnt find out that that meant. The way you described it sounds like amazing fun. Man you eat in the nude adn game in the nude asfun as that sounds my place is too cluttered Im afraid that my junk will jet snagged on some ish…ahhh the joys of external genitals. Im guessing that fun sexy times is a recurring entry on the fun list ? I havent sketched in a while or had booze gotta change that, those were definitely fun. Toys… i thionk I have an old die cast metal Voltron thing somewhere here or a Thunder cats action figure. lol

      this was the best comment today , thanks!!!!!!!

      • Well, you should def play Kingdoms of Amalur, especially if you like RPGs (roleplaying games). I am not surprised you didn’t know about Gencon if you aren’t a multi gamer…but had you *honestly* never heard of D&D? Sadness!

        Being in a beta is just Beta Testing. If you’re well known enough in certain circles (or know others who are) then you become the second group of people to play an unreleased game. Alpha testing is reserved for the R&D teams…but I think Betas have more fun since we get to try to “break” the games rules before the public gets it.

        Despite not thinking of myself as a woman, I must say I am happy with my more compact genitals.

        Sex with a partner you like, who likes you back, is highly recommended at any time and every time. I mean…it’s sex!

        Thundercats? Voltron? Nah, too mainstream. Silverhawks…now *that’s* what I’m talking about. 😀

      • I tried Runescape once. It was fun. I have heard of Dungeons and Dragons I had no idea what it was or that D&D was how it was referred to. I get the being a in a beta make sense now.. Have you ever done that ? You don’t think of yourself as a woman ? I don’t understand what that means like utterly clueless. When it comes to gender I don’t really have a clue other than how it is for me and the peeps I roll with. I remember I used to watch silver hawks. I like your style and taste!
