    And furthermore, isn’t the image that this whole article is triggering is that movie ”The Weddingcrashers” which is about men who go to weddings to prey on women (and I think it gets to the point where they go to funerals to prey on grieving women for the sole purpose of having sex). That movie in itself deserves some intelligent criticism.

    The problem with your argument is that you are saying this equating women with body parts and preying on women is okay because women do it too. Well I disagree. Just because men do it a lot and women it do it some, does not make something okay. Men and women also say pretty stupid and offensive things: racist, sexist, and violent aggressive things. If we were, as a society to celebrate this violent communication as ”brotherly talk” or ”sisterly talk” or whatever you call it, we would only be further digging ourselves a hole. Did the great leaders of our world get to where they were by commenting on the size of ”tits”. No. I think not. They used words eloquently. With purpose. In a humble, respectful way. And more times than not they had a message.

    Im not saying that every restroom conversation should be equated to the Dalai Lama, im just saying that if you look at the phrase ”going for braidsmaid” with ”big tits” in the study evolutionary psychology pertaining to lingusitcs it is foremost very sexist and also not very intelligent and a step backwards in time for our society.

    Deep down in our unconscious, our ID it is. we like sex because it feels good, it feels good because we evolved neurochemistry of sex. that awesome brain euphoria. so wait. i was using evolution to discuss this issue. i was saying that weve evolved past this. we can actually be conscious of the words [...]
