Are tattooed women an affront to good men?

Probably not interested in dating dudes from The Spearhead

Newsflash from the frontlines of the gender war: Apparently some of the ladies are getting tattoos!

Luckily for us, The Spearhead is on the case. In a recent post titled “Ruminations from Seat 22D,” Spearhead guest poster Lyn87 reported on an encounter with one of these ghastly creatures:

I recently took a long trip for work and spent a lot of hours in the air. One of my fellow passengers really stood out in my mind: a 20-something lass a few rows ahead of me. She is a natural-born beauty in that “launch a thousand ships” kind of way – slim, near-perfect symmetrical features, piercing blue eyes, and a shapely body. She is, simply, stunning. But there’s more to this story than a retired soldier admiring an exquisite example of female flesh young enough to be my daughter.

Well, we’re off to a really creepy start here.

It was actually her tattoo that first caught my attention.

Oh, that’s where we’re going. This is going to be one of those “women with tattoos are whores” kind of story.

She was wearing a low-slung top that revealed a HUGE eagle inked across her chest and extending down under the front of her shirt. And then I noticed her hair – what little there was of it. I’ve always kept my hair short, even by military standards, and her hair was shorter than mine.

Tattoos and a short haircut! Excuse me for a moment; I think I’m getting the vapors.

Few things de-feminize a woman more than buzzing off her hair, which is why it is considered to be shameful in many societies. She was wearing ratty, ripped jeans and far too much costume jewelry.

I can’t believe we let women leave the house in such attire.

And then I noticed the piercings.

Not the piercings!

As I stood six inches behind her for several minutes waiting to de-plane I counted seven, and that was just what was visible. I wondered what else she had done to herself. A tramp-stamp is a given, but who knows what other “body art” was hidden out of my view.

We can only imagine. Some Matisse prints? A mural in the style of Diego Rivera? A reproduction of Michelangelo’s David? One of the plates from Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party?

[M]en like me, the kind of man women say they want – responsible, courteous, masculine, respectable, upwardly mobile – [avoid] women like her even as long-term girlfriends, let alone wives.

I’m pretty sure that women like her — or like most women — are not much interested in men who are not only old enough to be their father but who also read The Spearhead.

[I]a person goes to great lengths to project a certain persona, especially in a way designed to attract attention, it says something about him/her. I asked myself what would cause the stunningly-beautiful young woman on my flight – at the height of her Sexual Market Value – to do that to herself? Women dress for us, so what does she intend for us to infer? I’m easy? I’m rebellious? I can drink you under the table?

Maybe: “If you’re the sort of misogynist creep who’s going to jump to weird conclusions about my character based on my tattoos, my piercings, and even on the length of my fucking hair, and then write about it at length on a site overflowing with similarly misogynist creeps, I’d rather not have anything to do with you?”

But Lyn87 seems unable to understand why anyone would want to send such a message:

I can think of no message that her chosen facade would convey that would be in her long-term interest. In a few years after her looks fade she is likely to be just another tatted-up skank wondering where the good men are.

Wherever these “good men” are, I’m pretty sure they aren’t reading or writing for The Spearhead.

It didn’t have to be this way. In a different social environment a woman like her would have learned to be (gasp!) feminine. She would have observed the older women in her surroundings and absorbed benevolent patriarchy in the air she grew up breathing.

Oh lord.

With her beauty she could have married above her economic station and lived a comfortable life. We can’t know if she would have been happy, but she almost certainly would have had stability, security and comfort.

Hey, who needs happiness when you’ve got patriarchy!

But she doesn’t live in that society; she lives in a “Slut Walk” society, thanks to feminism. When she chose the “Suicide Girl” look nobody stopped her.

Um, who exactly is supposed to stop her from dressing and looking how she likes?

Now she has mutilated herself with enough ink and metal trinkets to repel the kind of man most likely to give her the life she wants, because no matter what she does to the outside of her body, she will eventually want what women have always wanted on the inside – stability, security and comfort.

Hmm. Could it be that she’s not actually interested in the life a man could “give her,” and perhaps more interested in the sort of life she can, you know, give herself?

The fruits of feminism: what a waste.

Only if you’re a narcissistic misogynist who thinks the world revolves around his preferences.

@MTR: Damn straight! Just ‘cuz Helen thought Orlando Bloom Paris was a helluva hottie and wanted to hang out with him didn’t mean they had to have some stupid war!

*heh*

From what little I’ve read about the historical “Troy,” the major conflicts were over who controlled the trade — it’s really sad the way the MRAtrollz don’t seem to be able to differentiate between fiction and history….though maybe not surprising given the uber fictional world they all live in.

if only tattoos and short hair really warded off misogyny completely…that would be sa-weeet.

“I was always taught to be nicest to the people who WON’T pay it back, because they’re looking to ruin someone, and you don’t want it to be you.”

Every time Raoul gives us a little glimpse of his past I always find myself wondering what strange and awful thing happened to give him such a depressing worldview. Were you working for Gordon Gecko?

Molly, one could charitably interpret it as a reminder to be nice to people who can’t return the favor, since you don’t need to be reminded to be nice to the people who can.

Obviously, some people do need to be reminded, but in principle doing so is self-reinforcing.

“I’m pretty sure that women like her — or like most women — are not much interested in men who are not only old enough to be their father but who also read The Spearhead.”

Have you noticed that a recurring theme on these blogs is the fear of raising age of consent laws and the desire to counteract that with a LOWERING?

Are there a plethora of girls in their early-mid teens just dying to bang bald, flabby middle aged guys or am I missing another point here?

Do these old men already have college co-eds ages 18-20 banging down their doors and hence want to try their hand at the younger set?

“Women dress for us, so what does she intend for us to infer?”

NOPE. 20 year old women DO NOT dress for old men. They dress first for themselves, 2nd maybe for other women, and 3rd for young handsome men whom they wish to attract. There is a whole generation of young men with tattoos and piercings themselves who would find this young woman attractive, if indeed that is what she is “dressing for”.

I must have accidentally dressed for Spearhafoc the other day. People were commenting on my “1920s outfit”. :3 (I know Spearhafoc actually likes the 40s and 50s, but it made me think of him) 😉

I really had to laugh at the whole thing. I mean, I’m a 20 something womanin my prime. I have a great job, where I deal with the public everyday. I’m working on 2 full tattoo sleeves. I have a shaved-sides mohawk. AND, a loving and stable relationship with someone who absolutely fell in love with who I am. “Absurd” appearance, and all. I will admit to people looking twice at me. Or openly commenting on how I look. While shopping for shoes the other day, i heard a girl say to her boyfriend (condescendingly) “Oh my god, she has a mohawk.”
Part of me really wanted to flip around and say, “Oh my god, you’re wearing Ugg boots and sweatpants in public, in the middle of the day.” But I’m above that. I take the snares and under-my-breath comments in stride.
Even if I didn’t have/find the man of my dreams. I could still be happy being myself. Maybe it helps that neither of us falls under the “normal” category. But where is the fun in being Susie Home-maker Cookie-cutter any ways? Sometimes, in the summer, I’ll break down and dye my hair blonde. I mean, its just easier to be my natural colour. And the sun bleaches it any ways. I bet that guy shit a brick when he learned tattooed Barbie came out! Lock yourself in the bomb shelter son. The mad Amazons are loose. And they’ve taken over feminine stereotypes!!
But I digress…the point is, its my house. And I’ll decorate it like I want.

I wonder if it’s dawned on any of the usual suspects that perhaps the young lady dressed/acted/inked that way in order to be attractive to other women.

When I was a young thing it always amazed me how many men old enough to be my dad just assumed I would be interested in them, and then became very, very offended and angry when I wasn’t.

mythago, if you told an MRA that sometimes women dress to impress other women, it would blow their minds. They can’t conceive of women that do anything that isn’t about impressing men. One of the Spearhead commenters actually believed that women are getting tattoos and piercings to stand out in a crowd, because they’re having trouble getting attention from men. He even guessed that MGTOW is the reason. They live in a different reality than the rest of the world, that’s for sure.

Wait, don’t they also argue that women only dress to impress other women because females are competitive, picky bitches who care about foolish she-stuff like makeup and shoes? Which is of course not to say that doublethink is something MRAs have a problem doing.

One is forced to wonder, also, if the MRA ever considered the possibility that she’s dressed like that specifically to repel men like him. Being hit on constantly by men old enough to be their fathers is not fun for most young women, even assuming that nothing worse has happened.

As an aspiring moviemaker currently working on a web series, reading all of the anecdata about nice people in the entertainment world and how it pays off (especially Rutger Hauer. FUCK YEAH!) makes me soooo happy.

Seriously, my entire week so far would’ve completely sucked without reading all of that. Thank you.

You, sir, are an idiot. There’s a LOT more to attraction than physical appearance. Also, as fashion is an art form, some people have different tastes. *gasp* You ever stop to think maybe she doesn’t give a rat’s ass if you find her attractive or wants to “absorb the patriarchy”.

You mean tattoos repel these kinds of people? Shit I should put mine on display more often!

Seriously though, that was the most sickeningly condescending thing I’ve read in a long time. Is it weird that I felt it was worse that the hate messages these guys usually spew, in that it those can be dismissed as pure crazies, whereas this guy actually doesn’t have a fucking clue that he’s being patronizing? It’s downright depressing.
