My daughter is a beautiful girl. Now I know that every woman, even dads thinks that of their child but honestly Gina is a beautiful girl. Gina is one of those rare young women who truly seems to be unaware of that fact but one thing she is certain of is that she is a female.
Now she was on her way to class yesterday morning and it was cold outside. The type of cold that makes it hurt to breath. We've all experienced it, you take a breath and the biting cold air you take into your lungs makes it seem like you're breathing in shards of dry ice. Another words people it was flipping cold outside.
Gina is also a practical young woman. She was dressed in a hoody with the little pull on thing you pull up over your nose and mouth, in her words she did look like the uni-bomber. She had on a coat and all the other things that an intelligent person would put on to protect themselves from the elements. The point being she was more interested in not freezing her butt off than catching the attention of some guy. She also had two large bags thrown over her shoulders to carry everything she needed for her classes. Now we all know that a lot of young women will sacrifice their health and well being to do the whole girly thing even if it means freezing their asses off. Gina is not one.
While on her long trek to her class she passes two young men talking. Gina didn't know these guys and really didn't pay any attention to the two morons. She did however hear one ask the other as she passed "is that a girl?" This has had her upset ever since it happened for several reason. First the one thing if you see Gina in a normal situation believe me you can't possibly question whether or not she is female and I will leave that statement as is without explanation.
Now the first part that bothers her is that anyone would question her gender. She is female after all and that would bother most women. The second part and maybe this is the most important part to her was these guys thinking that because she was female she should have been dressing in a way that would draw their attention to the fact that she is a female. Really? Because she is a woman she is supposed to put aside her personal comfort and well being so that guys can identify her as the opposite sex and display herself in a way that they can check her out and not obstruct their view of her female form. She then got to thinking about the women who feel the need to dress in a way, no matter what the temperature, to draw male attention all the time. She is majoring in psychology so the working of the human mind is her thing.
When a guy goes out in the cold he generally dresses for the weather and no one not only never dreams to question their sex but also don't worry about whether or not a woman can check out their fine well shaped rear ends if they have one. They can go into any situation no matter how they are covered expecting women to know they are men and regardless of what they look like they have something a woman wants regardless of how it's packaged.
She told me she felt like pulling her hair down, she has very long hair, pull the covering off her face, and unzip her jackets and pulling the jackets aside and turning to the two idiots go, "yes I'm a girl." She didn't. Knowing Gina if she hadn't been hurrying for class she might have.
I wish I could find these two idiots and slap them upside their head and give the a long talk and not a nice one.
Come on guys when it's cold outside appreciate a woman having enough sense to protect themselves from the weather and don't act like asses. If it's cold enough outside for you to cover yourself with many layers of clothing then it's cold enough for a woman to do the same thing. If you do feel the need to comment on it do so in a tone of voice that doesn't carry to the lady in question. Also remember not every woman feels the need to get your attention. I'm sorry to tell you this but you're not the gift of God to women and most women wouldn't give you the time of day. Even the women who dress to impress the opposite sex no matter the situation probably wouldn't give you a second look no matter what the temperature is outside.
