The Joys of RuNet!

How can I ever leave the Russian blogosphere when I receive amusing and thought provoking comments like this! :)

"Странная женщина. 42 почти года, мужа нет. Работы, видимо, толковой тоже, иначе не каталась бы по самым дешевым билетам в Москву. Детей нет. Чего в жизни добилась-то? Русский кое-как выучила, чтоб русского мужчину найти? Так они давно разобраны, у них уже дети школу заканчивают. При этом гонор ого-го какой. Высокомерно поучает, хотя в сущности пишет банальности и глупости. Вам бы к психотерапевту, тётенька."

Btw, I never see the single male bloggers on LJ being harassed or criticized for not being married. Why is that? Is it only shameful for an older woman to be single in Russian culture, but okay for men to remain unmarried and childless? My life is worthless! I don't have a Russian man...how can I survive? :)

Pleasant weekend to all!

I know this post about me. Usually, on a friday night, I'm drunk as an Irishman, but it does not change the fact:
1) This woman is beautiful.
2) I am no less beautiful.

Sooo typical, sooo sad.
You can be a super achiever carrier vise but in the eyes of the society you are the looser if you are not married. Nothing has changed there. It's all about getting that one and only russian man)) LOL))

Yes, it's so sad. I have never once felt any social pressure (from family or friends) in the U.S. for being single and not having children. Completely different mentality and culture. Yes, I agree it's very important to have babies to ensure our population doesn't die out, but there are plenty of people doing it so I'm not concerned. And IMHO there are definitely other ways to contribute to society and leave an impression in the world other than popping out babies.

I'm pretty certain a man wrote that comment. :) But, yes, he was probably just trolling me. I hope his views of women aren't that narrow. Anyway, the comment really made me laugh so I pass it along for reader amusement.

As far as I know, this sort of social pressure is not as strong as it used to be anymore. But it still exists, yes.

The single men are under suspicion of being gay, so they usually feel pressure from their friends. As a popular stand-up comedian put it, "my friends want to get me married whatever it takes -- because people cannot bear it when someone is happy".

Suspicion of being gay? :)) The joke is funny, but I am not anti-marriage. I think a good union and relationship is the greatest gift in the world, but too many people just settle. And it will never be me.

Well, this comment was funny. I would ban someone immediately for misogynist statements. I did it recently when someone started calling me a fat bitch, cunt and other vile names.
