Why Steak and BlowJob Day sucks (pun very much intended).

First off, I’m loathe to share any MtlBlog link, because these guys think nothing of stealing other people’s intellectual property, and their articles are horribly written and edited, but a friend of mine asked me to comment on this article, so here goes.

What do I think about Steak and Blowjob Day…

Here’s what I think in a nutshell. I think it’s a sad, misguided “holiday”, created by sad, misguided fools who think there’s a legitimate need for a “pushback” kind of movement because men are somehow getting the raw end of the deal in this Valentine’s Day “scam”. I can bet a good chunk of change that all the Men’s Rights Movement dudes have signed up for this one.

But here’s the deal.

It’s not even the obvious sexism in the cheesy article and the even cheesier holiday that offends me the most here, but the absurd notion that this is somehow an appropriate response to an overly commercialized holiday like Valentine’s Day.

I mean, I don’t even care for VDay… but I find the idea (and ultimately the guiding assumption behind this created event) that a holiday conceived to celebrate love is *only* for women rather sad. Isn’t Valentine’s Day for the couple – whatever it is you decide to do (or not do)?

I’m sharing what my friend Michael Murphy had to say to me on Facebook, because I think it’s incredibly perceptive and wise.

“The sentiment is in line with the (adolescent?) notion that romance or love is a zero-sum “game.” Either you’re getting or you’re giving; if you’re getting you’re winning, and if you’re giving you’re losing. Love is an acrimonious competition against your partner to get by force or guile what they would rather withhold.”

“Withhold”… How sad to find yourself in a relationship where love and affection, whether in the form of flowers or fellatio, is withheld, rationed out, used as a bargaining chip. I can’t think of anything less sexy, less loving, less attractive.

Also, the official site of Steak & Blow Job Day tells us they’re raising money for breast cancer, to which I reply: HAHAHAHAHAHA! GTFO of here.

Here’s my final two cents, because deadlines are calling my name.

Women, if you’re in a relationship and “expressing love” in any shape or form is drudgery or an “obligation” for your man, please reconsider the relationship.

Men, if you need a “special” day for your girlfriend or wife to give you a blowjob, I sincerely want to cry for you. May I suggest you get the fuck out of that relationship and go enjoy some sex? There are many women who sincerely enjoy them.

Signed,
Toula, a lover of love, thoughtful gifts, blowjobs, AND steak.

    I agree that I doubt they are raising money for charity. And an official site doesn’t put the word “official” in their domain name. Now I don’t dispute the holiday is real though. I feel this is really the official website for Steak and Blowjob Day:

    ROTFLMAO!

    IF THIS WASN’T HAPPENING, there’d be no silly Steak and Blowjob Day. To pretend either via mocking sarcasm, or lying disbelief that women AREN’T using sex as a weapon is absurd. I know it, you know it, all the little children know it…

    It’s in your blood.
