Why is a "thunderstorm", according to many orkut profiles, a turn on?? and not only me, soo many people(read: women) find thunderstorms exciting? the answer lies in gender games and finding Akshay Kumar extremely sexy in a pink kurta. No matter how much we fight on sensitive feminist issues, the truth is that yes, we're equal, but generation after generation women have had a soft spot for what u'd call "masculine men".. those with a zeal to save the women in their lives from all difficulties.. sigh. 3 sentences that guarentee weak knees for a girl is "don't worry, im there now, i'll take care of it all." those with the ability to literally, if not otherwise, protect his woman.. have scored. and they so have:)
Which make all of it, thunderstorms, tsunamis, earthquakes a tad bit romantic, for star struck lovers, apart from disasterous. Which is also why at atleast point of our lives, we have worshiped the ever-crooning backstreet boys. Which is why we think Akshay Kumar can pull off even a pink kurta. Ofcourse this is an ambiguous topic, many might not admitt to this, many might have problems with my enhancement of stereotypes, but well bugger off, this is my blogspot remember??
Why else do we find Justin "I'll let u whip me if i misbehave" Timberlake sexy? yes, we all hate MCPs. and there a bunch of them out there. But i know loads of women who'd want, what i've started to call "the protecting factor", in their partner/boyfriend. Just one line- "baby, i'll take care of it, dont worry" or "baby, i'm there, there's no need to worry now" does wonders, doesnt it? see, im not a fan of mush myself.. but for how much longer are we going to kid ourselves. Sometimes, a few things Grandma tell us, do turn out to be true. Even though i totally dont believe in streotypes or gender discrimination/superiority, this is something i dont ignore. Call it personal choice but pansy men, (go find out definations urself) only make me laugh..
sigh, this was on observation that fascinated me, although right now im so not lookin at finding someone, this is a criteria im sure to utilise later on!
"Lights go out and I can’t be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Brought me down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead
Singin’, come out if things aren’t said
Shoot an apple off my head
And a, trouble that can’t be named
Tigers waitin’ to be tamed
Singing, yooooooooooooo ohhhhhh
Confusion never stops
Closing walls and ticking clocks Gonna,
come back and take you home
I could not stop that you now know Singin’,
come out upon my seas
Curse missed opportunities Am I,
a part of the cure
Or am I part of the disease?"
