Sexual Minds and Their Demise

You can be the most handsome man, the most gorgeous woman...but if you can't bring anything to the table beyond aesthetics, there's going to be a problem. We're told to idolize one dimensional people with fake body parts and personalities; that our shells should be dazzling, or we're worth naught.  
 
We're force fed skewed beliefs then vomit them on various platforms.  Perfectly trained to let media do our thinking for us; lobotomize free will and replace it with a television. Stay in line, or maybe revolt. Follow the leader. Simon says boycott, Simon says riot, but just enough to anger to other side. Just enough to ever fuel the fire of division. Simon says. 
 
My god. 
 
 
Put down your phone and talk to me about the cosmos. The overwhelming enormity of the Galaxy. Pick my brain about the utterly faulty way we go about dating now, and how commitment has become a dirty word.
 
Let's discuss books- better yet, let's read the same one, separately, then come together and discuss it! An actual book. A novel. The kind that you don't have to turn on or charge, but requires a hand to turn a page, and imagination to create a minds eye movie of the authors tale. 
 
Genuine thinkers and creative minds are in scarily low supply these days. I'm not just talking about men- this is a PSA to anyone who will listen. You can have rock hard abs, the most reblogged thigh gap on Tumblr, whatever it is that society has told you makes you relevant and defines your worth-- but I'm here to tell you it's a complete farce.
 
 
If someone combs your mind and all they find is regurgitated Kim K quotes, or Scott Hermans diet plan, (paired with a handful of dust bunnies), then I'm sad for you. It all means nothing. Sure, there's nothing wrong with a rockin bod with great definition and striations, or 'the perfect fishtail braid', but offer something more. Be real. Be YOU. The things you pin on Pinterest don't define who you are as an individual- you do. THAT'S who I want to know. That's how you'll leave your mark on what's rapidly becoming a carbon copy society. Intelligence is sexy. Individuality is sexy. Creativity is sexy. Being who you are, regardless of media and societal pressures....
 
 
That's fucking sexy. 

#Hashtagged

Folder: 
Funny, Ha, Ha

 

Maybe if I had a #hashtagged name,

They'd pay me some attention.

For all the 'social networking' done,

You'd think I'd get some mention.

 

Everyone is all-too-busy posting,

To spend anymore quality time.

'Social Media' is just an oxymoron,

It's more like a 'Social Climb'.

 

They are so afraid they'll miss,

A post, a comment or tweet.

Cell phones up in all their faces,

Walking down every city street.

 

The day of the zombies coming,

are what some people  fear,

But guess what? Take a look around!

They are already here!

WHAT R WE LOOK N 4 by bipolarschizo33

to be honest with you all.
it once took a man 3 weeks to see me the first time,
and the first date i got stood up.
maybe he picks his kids up as an excuse not to see me now
or he could want someone else.
if i scare you now then there is no point.
i'm not like dating a horror movie
but my sense of humor can get disturbing
because i think its funny.
i'm not uptight
with a pineapple jammed up my backside.
sheesh.
if soldiers got scared,
who would protect us?
battles get ugly-
so why is a man scared of me?
you might not be a boy really.
just a man in tune with your heart.
its good to keep your heart young
but your mind should become wise to all things.
P.S.
I just want to stop meeting cowards
because they pi88 me off more then anything else in this world.
I use to think I was one
but I face all my fears every chance I get.
both my parents were in the millitary for 8 years
and my mother became a sargeant
and my grandmother was so strict with us growing up
she should have worked for the government
because as a child she gave us permission to cry once
when we both got pnemonia
but every other time
she told us to shut up and be tough.
So we are.
Its best to teach your child to survive
but they can learn to love later.
Another thing,
men get pi88ed off
because i'm capable of sucking the fun out of things
and i put words in their mouth
like i'm reading their mind.
i would not have to do this,
if they would communicate with me.
i won't apologize for being so da8n intelligent.
i can't get stupid to make a man feel better.
not going to happen.
i don't even read books
but yet i can out talk and out think most men
because they choose to be ignorant.
so what would impress me?
a man that will have courage enough to stay anyway
even if i read his mind and do most of the talking.
but really it should be 50/50 talking
or a little more or less-
but i can't find that anywhere.
bottom line-
i want everything that i need,
not everything i want.
the grass is only green for real relationships,
not that stuff you see on tv or read about in books.
4 other things to know include:
I have one STD.
I am outspoken.
I don't drive.
I am unemployed.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

searching for a soulmate.

Progress vs. Humanity

You read this now
Perhaps seeking glimpses of humanity
Absorbed through curved black lines on white screen

Ever deeper and more meaningful
the status updates
the likes and the pokes
The spiraling social media
replaces our interactions
Our thought patterns, even
Ever think in 3rd person?

where are Adam and Eve
Where is our garden?
smelling, feeling, tasting

To touch the earth
and others
engulfed by senses
Ruled by emotion
And physical need

As time elapsed
Progress was made
In technology
Matched by an equal decline
In humanity
And mindfulness
