log0rrhea replied to your photo:I HATE EVERYTHING THERE IS NO CORRELATION BETWEEN…Actually people with low self esteem are more likely to lower standards in order to get sex because it makes them feel useful and appreciated
yeah, but self respect and self esteem aren’t the same thing (and even if they were it’s still actually nobody’s business who has sex when and for what reasons.)
I have basically no self-esteem. None. I have, however, managed to come to respect myself as a human being. I could be having wild sex every night because I wanted to feel useful, or because I enjoyed it, or because it was a good way to make money,and still respect myself.
re-spect noundeference to a right, privilege, privileged position, or someone or something considered to have certain rights or privileges; proper acceptance or courtesy; acknowledgment: respect for a suspect’s right to counsel; to show respect for the flag; respect for the elderly.To respect myself is to acknowledge that I have basic human rights, and to fulfill them to the best of my ability with the knowledge that I am deserving of them.
To hold myself in high esteem is another matter entirely.
I presume we are arguing on the basis of “THERE IS NO CORRELATION BETWEEN THE AMOUNT OF RESPECT YOU HAVE FOR YOURSELF AND THE AMOUNT OF SEX YOU HAVE”, in the context of “Hoes want attention/Women want respect” picture
People with a low amount of self respect, with self-respect being defined as: The amount of respect with which someone treat themselves, and with which they believe they deserve to be treated (Although that crosses into self-esteem), often feel the need to increase their feelings of self-worth. Agreed? Obviously.
So in order to increase their self worth, they may act similar to what is colloquially referred to as a whore. Although, not all of them do. Agreed?
So what that picture is promoting, is actually self-respect through the refraint of casual sex. Yes? It’s suggesting that the amount of sex you have is an indication of how much you respect yourself as by increasing the amount of sex, you increase the amount of “attention” that you receive.
It also implicitly states that “attention” is to receive sex from multiple sources on multiple occasions, while “respect” is to limit yourself to a low number of sources in order to augment the amount that people wish to respect you, which will eventually lead into self respect.
Therefore, the statement of “Hoes want attention/Women want respect” is one that is both feministic and promotes the practice of respect-receipt through sex-restraint.
