Wednesdays. Typically Wednesdays are great – they are the day of the week new episodes of our podcast, Asked, air live at 10 PM EST on our main page. Wednesday is the day of the week new episodes of Arrow, The Americans, and Lucha Underground are on. Wednesday is hump day. Half the week is over. However there is a horrible tainting to Wednesday that is the result of sites such as Twitter and Instagram. A wrong that must be righted. A hashtag, which while seemingly minor has actually screwed the balance of power up between men and women in our current era.
I’m talking about #WCW.
No… not THAT WCW. I’m talking about #WomenCrushWednesday. Women Crush Wednesday was founded by morons who I guess decided that women needed an ego boost. Whether its women who started it or men with no balls I don’t know. The purpose is the same. Essentially it’s mostly men (and some girls who like girls) tagging photos of women on Instagram or Twitter and saying they are their “woman crush.” Usually these posts have adjectives such as “beautiful,” “gorgeous,” or the previously mentioned as the stupidest “word” of our time, “BAE.”
I’m all for flattery when flattery is deserved but I’m going to be perfectly honest here. Ladies, you’re not beautiful unless you’re sucking my dick. The problem with Women Crush Wednesday is that it’s nothing but validation and ego-boosting for women that have done absolutely nothing to deserve it other than “have a lot of followers on social media.” If the biggest contribution you can offer isn’t wit, or charm, or charisma but posting your cleavage with the phrase “thirst trap,” then kindly fuck off. If you’re one of the many men that clicks LIKE, FAVORITE, or RETWEET when they do this, then I’ve got news for you: You’re part of the problem.
Chances are your “Woman Crush Wednesday” is never going to have sex with you. Never going to love you. You are one in a number, a number that as it increases so too does the woman’s ego… without ever having done ANYTHING to deserve your admiration. This is a problem in society. It’s a shift in the balance of power. It’s one thing to be nice to someone, or to like someone. It’s another completely to reward them solely for existing and hand them your admiration unearned for being attractive. And who the fuck even has crushes anymore? The fact that many people who participate in this atrocious farce are in their 20s and 30s is pathetic. You’re an adult. You’re not 12. Crushes are for kids. Find your testicles, be a man, and give your attention to the women who are willing to do something more than take a picture in some tight pants on the Internet to deserve it. They can at least send some nudes to get some attention. It’s the least they can do. You’re telling these women they don’t have to do ANYTHING to get worship other than be alive. They don’t have to actually fight for you, or work for you, or support you or stand by you or do anything that involves equality at all – they are on a pedestal and this is the reason that women out there legitimately think that they can get something for nothing at every turn – because they can. All because of you being pathetic.
Men, wake up. Do not support women crush Wednesday. Women, do something to earn your compliments because frankly “existing” isn’t enough to impress any man who isn’t a complete fucking twat himself. Thank you.
