Mr. TC and I both have blogs. I don't think he's been reading my blog because honestly, I think it frightens him.
His blog is about a passion of his - travel. If he had a blog about a teenage drama (like heaven forbid a Hannah Montana blog with lusty photos of Miley Cyrus) I would probably shoot him and then myself in that order. Maybe I wouldn't go so far but I would still worry if he spent his whole day plastered to a screen twittering and blogging with other men about his love for Miley and Hannah Montana.
|If Mr. TC had a blog about her I would die|
|But me having a blog about him is okay|
But why is it what I am doing okay? It is the double standard that I am ashamed of yet I am exploiting it gloriously.
Wouldn't it be creepy if thousands of men were waiting for Miley Cyrus to turn 18 and had graphic descriptions of the way they would celebrate her birthday with her? Wait, I'm sure that is happening and I am just in denial.
Anyways, to me it's gross when I think about 40 year old men jacking off in front of the computer after reading a Hannah Montana fanfic. Yet it's okay that I frequently spend the day drooling over a 23 year old whose stare turns me into a puddle on the ground. Yes, 23 is legal but honestly he's still really young.
|Okay, maybe he looks more grown up here|
Is it because women are supposed to be more harmless than men? Or that a man would be more than happy to have women pining over him where a woman should be scared? I dare to say that a crazed female fan could sexually exploit and harm a man just as badly as if the genders were reversed.
I don't know why our significant others put up with it. Obviously there are some SOs who reap the rewards of wet panties from lemony fanfic. But even then I would be grossed out if Mr. TC read a story about Hannah M and her boyfriend getting it on and then came to bed with me because it made him excited.

looking at this? (from RPFangirlDC)
I guess they love us and are willing to live with it. Until they put their foots down I suppose it does seem to make us happy and so they turn a blind eye and pray it will be over soon. This reminds me a post on Twired where SoTwired Jen's Not So Twilight boyfriend brings up the ultimate elephant in the room about what she'll do when this twilight thing is all over. They're obviously secure in the fact that we love them and there is no way Rob is going to run through doorways so they aren't threatened. But still, if the roles were reversed what would I think?

I guess if Mr. TC were to start a KStew blog of love while I was in my RPattz bloggie world then it would somehow seem balanced. But if it were more one sided on his side where I was left standing while watching him ogling and lusting after her, I'm not so sure how I'd feel. Does it mean that I'm the insecure one even if I truly didn't feel threatened but just disturbed and envious that she was getting so much of his attention?
Let me know your thoughts on this. I am not looking for a way to defend our blogosphere - I love it and I'm thankful that it exists and don't need a justification for why it's here. Sometimes you just question whether or not things are out of balance, but in my favour this time.
I guess for now I won't question it. I'll just sit back and enjoy.
