Felonious Attention

A woman firmly believes that failure to look upon her with desire is a high crime, even if she has not the slightest intention of reciprocating any sexual interest from the man in question. It follows that looking upon any other woman with desire is also a crime, even or especially in a man she has herself rejected. For if she despises a man, how dare another woman like him; whatsoever she throweth away, let no other woman gather up! The difference is that the educated woman stigmatises, with great and thumping terminology taken from phoney history and cod anthropology, any male sexual attraction that is not directed at her, and founds whole pseudo-academic disciplines upon its ideological condemnation. The uneducated woman, however, simply calls the rival object of the desire a whore.

    “For if she despises a man, how dare another woman like him; whatsoever she throweth away, let no other woman gather up!”

    How true! I have a story that illustrates this in a striking manner.

    Many years ago, when I visited my ex-girlfriend / mother of my daughter, she also had another visitor, a girl who was her best friend. After a while she needed to get on with other tasks, so we were asked to leave. As we were about to depart, she jokingly suggested that we could go out.

    Which we did. And in fact, we got on quite well — so well that it became the luminous beginning of a relationship.

    My ex was furious, even though it had been more than five years since we had parted ways. It was unforgivable for me to have gotten involved with her friend. (Even though I fell in love, I should clearly have refrained from acting on it.) And after all the negative things that she had told her friend about me, it was simply incomprehensible to her that she could have fallen for med. (That too, of course, was unforgivable. She should have remained “loyal” to her.)

    Worst of all, for my ex, was knowing that she herself had played the role of match-maker.

    Yes indeed.

    As an older gentleman with lifelong bohemian tendencies I have no loot to attract a woman my age. Fine with me. If I had money I would hide the fact, if only to spare me the sudden interest of these parasites. (Nothing makes a man sexier than money–except power. The first law of socio-economic-dynamics holds that money and power can never be destroyed, only exchanged.)

    Consequent to my chronic penury I end up involved with women that are twenty and more years younger than I am. (Younger woman are used to men that are interested in things like music, men that haven’t yet resigned themselves to the chattel slavery of hunkering down to the short end of the stick in a breeding unit.) Yes there are problems built into that sort of arrangement, but they are on the whole manageable.

    However the condemnation from the harridans can get deafening. I can’t handle a real woman, (id est a harridan). I am a predator taking candy from a baby, (Even though the ‘baby’ is 34 years old!), It just goes on and on smearing my character as well as hers. (So much for sisterhood!)

    Nota Bene that these women have no interest whatsoever in having the likes of me as a boyfriend or husband. They just think I ought to pine after them so they can reject me. They’ll show me!

    They can’t face the utter failure of their fantasy based ideologies of relationship so they lash out at the irritating siglum. Squid ink obscuring the reflection in the ever present mirror just long enough for her to escape by diverting attention elsewhere.

    Ho hum.

    “A woman firmly believes that failure to look upon her with desire is a high crime, even if she has not the slightest intention of reciprocating any sexual interest from the man in question.”

    But woe betide you if you are the latter kind of man, and you are actually caught looking upon her with desire.

    Therein lies the Rub, eh Dwasifar? Primate display everywhere one looks, but shame on anyone who notices. That display is meant only for the eyes of “the one,” a man that doesn’t actually exist.

    This boils down to: “If you are the right man, I want you drooling; otherwise, I want you frustrated.”

    Anyone feel up to inventing a chameleonware burka that detects the “male gaze”, evaluates the attractiveness of the gazer and puts up a hologrammic niqab concealing the lady from the ocular harassment of the unworthy? The worthy, however, can see what she is really wearing, even if the answer is Victoria’s Secret or her birthday suit. One assumes that officers of the law will belong to the category of the unworthy, but there should be a manual override just in case.

    What if the worthy has an unworthy looking over his shoulder?

    Such a burka would have to evaluate the man’s financial situation and health as well, Hugo, perhaps by reading the chip that will be implanted in all men at birth, updated daily. A very attractive man with robust good health but modest potential for showering her with swag might still get lucky–for a tryst or two–but the smart money will still be on the old and ugly with big bucks and a heart condition.

    No, the smart money there is on the traditional deal whereby she marries the old and rich and is impregnated by the poor and handsome. It’s a win-win-win: not only does she get the best of the worlds, but the poor young man’s posterity will be heir to the old fart’s fortune. And the old fart wouldn’t get any takers if he made the extracurricular activities impossible, which is why extreme harem-guarding is not always a rational strategy. If he looks the other way, he will at least get something.
