The objectification of Women.

Please watch the video below before reading ūüôā

Alright, i know you’re probably as surprised as i am that im not writing a satirical piece, like i usually do. However i saw a video earlier that caught my attention, a topic that has bothered me for quite a while now.¬†

I usually avoid speaking on touchy subjects, or “preaching” if you may because i too, am flawed and don’t want you to think that im “Holier than thou”, because im not. But if you feel that there’s something good you have to say, why not spill it out. As you saw in the video above, the problem we’re looking at here is the objectification of women. Essentially that being when women are taken advantage of, are not taken seriously, and are viewed more so as objects rather than what anyone should be looked at as, a human being.

Anyone that would disagree that this isn’t a problem have really got to open their eyes to the reality of objectification. Constantly i see women being objectified. I see it on television, i see it on the internet, i see at school, it’s inescapable. I’m a 19 year old guy, trust me i hear it from plenty of men my age as well to more than testify to this bizarre act that shouldn’t even be considered a norm. There’s more to it than you think, it’s really more than just saying a rude comment towards a woman.

What i personally believe is one of the leading causes in objectification is ignorance and callous behavior. It’s not a thought process when a guy makes a comment about a girl’s body, most could care less or dont even think that a simple sentence could do a lot of emotional damage to a woman. The problem is you don’t know the power your words possess. Another problem is that we’re so used to seeing objectification in the media. I would frequently ask my sister’s when watching a show on tv, if it bothers them that the women on the program are seen mainly as objects. They would respond with yes, but that they’re so used to it by now. Seriously? We shouldn’t be used to something that’s so irrational.

Studies show that objectification can cause social anxiety, sexual dysfunction, self consciousness, depression and so on. There’s a very long list, feel free to research it if you don’t believe me.

Like i mentioned earlier, the big problem is ignorance. Most dont think about what they’re doing. So to help you understand, look at it this way. This is for all the men: All those carnal things that you have to say, every single word and thought…picture another guy having those intentions with your sister. Or any female relative that’s close to your heart. It burns because you know it’s not right, and you’re actually thinking about someone who means a lot to you now. I can’t blame you for having thoughts because you’re human. But what’s important is how you act upon those desires. Because there’s a consequence to everything you do. Not only are you hurting another person, but you are too hurting yourself. With every single thing you do, you have to live with it. So before you plan on making a booty call, think about how you might have to share those experiences to your wife or child one day. Also it’s not rocket science to know whether or not you’re being rude another individual. I’m sure your mother has taught you better on how to treat a lady, and if she¬†hasn’t¬†then pick up on common sense. Who you’re insulting is another person that has a story, feelings, and a soul. Just like you. All i ask for you to please just think about what comes out of your mouth. People dont forget about what you say, especially if it’s something cynical. Also, if it weren’t for a woman you wouldn’t be here.

You’re ruining a person’s life, Bro.

But to the few gentleman that actually treat women with respect, i applaud you. You’re a rare breed, so keep on doing what you do but dont get cocky. I wish for the best for you guys.

To the ladies: Stick up for yourself, please. Dont let a man bring you down or make you feel any less significant than him. You’re just as important, you’re a strong living breathing person with a beating heart and feelings, and you deserve more than to be pushed around and ignored. You have to make your voice heard or you’re just going to keep getting mistreated. That’s the sad and honest truth. Don’t be used to the way a majority of society looks at you. Every girl and person alike living have a quality beyond fathom. Every human alive is a gift from God, one day you will recognize it. But if you’re living in doubt, allow me to tell you that you’re special now. Chin up, there are good things in store for you. There is always hope.

Also not trying to flatter here, but usually guys need the girls more than you need us. Just saying. That’s why we call you the better half.¬†Us men put on a macho man, tough guy attitude, but ultimately I haven’t met a dude who doesn’t want a soul mate in the end. That’s the way it works. Most men…are big babies.

So what can we do to somewhat try to resolve this ongoing problem? My answer is this, just be aware. Have a filter with the things you say, and think about how you can effect someone deeply with your words. No matter how much someone will try to convince you that words dont hurt, they do. And there can be some serious consequences. So contrary to that, strive to say good things and be a good person. Not only will you benefit the other person, but you will develop a positive change within yourself that will keep on growing with good deeds.

Take care of yourselves always, and go out of your way to do good. The world needs it.

Psychology-ification.

Psi

Psychology. Why write about it? Because Psychology is relevant to anything and everything you do in life, without you thinking it. Subconsciously, or -that word again- Psychologically. And just like Psychology, my blog is relevant to everything and everything you do in life. No seriously, i had lunch with the mayor this past afternoon to discuss when we’re putting up my statue. He said “Not right now.” And gingerly went about his business. But in reality…he actually told me “Tomorrow Dammit. On the fly”. Wanna know how i know that?

PSYCHOLOGY

You see, at the time the mayor said with his words “Not right now,”But his eyes. HIS EYES told me a whole different story. And with this story, came the fortunate news of the long awaited statue that’s due t-t-t-today, Junior’!

today junior

That my friends is called body language, which is indeed a strong branch on the fine tree of Psychology. And this tree is made of Oak. The classiest of all trees.

Now you might be asking yourself, why didn’t he just tell you in person Daniel? Would’ve saved you the trouble really. Simple. The mayor didn’t want to flatter me and boost my- what? my EGO. There’s Ego, Super-ego and ID. Relevant.

PSYCHOLOGY

Side note: ID is my personal favorite. ID is when you want immediate personal satisfaction without thinking of it. Kind of like every person i meet, once they take a glance at me they’ll stop at nothing to shake my hand. Not caring about who’s mother they have to punch in order to bask in the glory that is me.

The wikipedia definition of psychology is “an academic and applied discipline that involves the scientific study of mental functions and behaviors.”

UGH. BOOOORING. Essentially, psychology is the study of all the things we do in life, and why. That’s more of the Daniel term for it. And trust me, if it’s related to me you know it’s good. So that’s why i encourage you to use my term instead: Psychology-ification. You sound ten times smarter when you put it that way, trust me you’ll be the coolest kid in school. The elegance radiates off my tongue when i say it. I swear, you won’t even need to go out with your monocle anymore to prove you got class.

monocle

I’ve been monocle free for nearly two month’s now, thanks to Psychology-ification

Warning: Side effects may be BABES.

What’s an example of psychology you ask? I would be more than happy to oblige you. Recently a university (that will remain anonymous) stopped by my college to promote their own. Upon entering, there was a table to the right of me with an abundance of information packets of this university. As i was going to to continue to my class, a sharp dressed gentleman working on behalf of the university stopped me and said, “Hello sir, have a pen for class.” And then i said, “Thanks” and proceeded.

However on a¬†side note, i will refrain from using the word “Sharp” ever again for the rest of my life. You see, one of the courses i currently take in college is Fundamentals of Music. Since this class is for beginner’s like me, you can imagine how often the term “Sharp” is exhausted. Therefore i’ve developed a hatred and personal vendetta for that word, and¬†every time¬†i hear it it’s kind of like hearing this:

(http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109686/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1)

If that doesn’t suffice, than it pretty much sounds like the extent of any heinous relatable category imaginable. I go out of my way to use the polar opposite of sharp, i don’t care if you have to be knived to death with a dull blade, it’ll happen. I’m resilient as hell. “You” of course being a steak dinner. Cause who wouldn’t want a steak dinner?! Instead of using the “S” word, im going to substitute it with Colon. Something tells me the Colon-Dressed man wouldn’t appreciate that however. But hey, he’s still Colon baby.

Anyway, what did the pen have to do with this? On it, there was the name of the university and its website. Now, their intention’s for me are when i’m jotting down notes for a class, or giving out my number (cause you know i don’t) to take a peep at the pen. And when i look at this pen, they want curiosity to take its natural toll on me, check out the website, and the rest is history.

BOOM. PSYCHOLOGY

Psychological advertising i believe. There are many theories along the lines of this example im sure, but the pinnacle of all this analytical nonsense is that the university wanted you to know about it. And i’ll bet a majority of society would give it a shot.

PSYCHOLOGY

However…

I am completely content with where i am, thank you very much! I like my little community college, and im sure it like’s me back because only a fool wouldn’t. If they didn’t, they can take me on for all i care.

“I am ready to face any challenges that might be foolish enough to take on me.” – Dwight Schrute

So on the contrary to your intention’s Mr. Fancy University, i wont fall into your little trap. Although it was a damn good attempt. Not many can honestly say they’ve pulled a fast one on Daniel. Although i’ve come short many times to the one and only Mariella. Also known as, the giver of my birth. But she’s a step up in evolution i’m convinced. If you’d meet her you’d understand. So instead of succumbing¬†into a psychological fall, i think instead ill chew on the pen during class and think about Pearl Jam. When really I should be focusing on my Colons.

Also, a little tip of advice for the university. It’s against the rules of nature to promote your own crap on another one’s turf. JEEEEZ have we not learned ANYTHING from West Side Story? You don’t go around stepping on others’ toes. It’ll only result in some serious yet carefully and charismatically choreographed dance brawls.

Jets v. Sharks Battle

DER!

Like the example above, movies are an easy way to learn things psychologically because they know you’re too lazy to crack open a book, so what do they do? Put the morals on the big screen! You just might learn something without even realizing it.

PSYCHOLOGY

So when you think of Psychology, just remember me. And remember that Psychology-ification is probably the worst take on anything Psychological in the history of humanity. But…in doing this, maaaaaaybe it’ll encourage you to actually study the field of psychology, and all of it’s analytical glories. Because if you do, i’m 110 percent sure that you’ll only benefit. Maybe, just maybe….that’s what i wanted all along?

Salty.

I appear to have what the writer’s call, “Writer’s block.” What i imagine looks something like this

writers-block

LOL

Not really actually. I usually have something on my mind to write about It’s just that im obligated to come up with something at least bi-weekly for all my fans out there, because there’s just so damn many of you. People be coming up to me being like, “YOoOoOoO Danny, when you coming up with another blog dawg?!” I then sigh and nod my head passively, and be like “Ahh…i dont know man…im like.. im really busy helping the needy, widows, etc etc…It’s practically an art what i do…” Then i excuse myself in mid conversation, acting like i dont really care about what you have to tell me. But it reality, im in the bathroom trying to catch my breath. Practicing conversation in the mirror and thinking of things to say, because im not original. Like John Travolta in Pulp Fiction. Or Michael Bay.

                                                                                              HOWEVER

To your surprise, this was all part of my plan. That was just a creative introduction to get you interested and get the ball rolling. I learned that technique in english class. What? There’s nothing wrong with a 200+ word intro that’s completely irrelevant to the topic at hand. Well, what’s the topic? I’m glad you didn’t ask.

Recently at a Dunkin Donuts in West Haven Connecticut, a robbery attempt was thwarted by -get this- COFFEE TO THE FACE. Here’s the real article if you’re interested.

http://www.wfmz.com/news/Dunkin-Donuts-worker-stops-robber-with-hot-coffee/-/121458/19202504/-/85cia7z/-/index.html

(Sidenote: Originally i was going to post this story in the “Onion” -ish satirical pompous manner as i did with the Kanye blog, but God forbid my blog becomes The Onion: Part 2. And everyone knows sequels SUCK. With an exception of Aliens, Godfather Part 2, Spider-Man 2 and the recent favorite The Dark Knight. If you deny Heath’s performance as the Joker then leave, just get out.)

Anyway,

I was shocked reading the article above. To sum things up, a man came rolling up in a white ford explorer, asked for change for a hundred dollar bill, and when he didn’t get it, attempted to climb in through the window to royally eff up the Dunkin employee. So what did the employee do? She did the most rational thing possible. She doused the bastard with some “hot java”. Yeah!

Tastes like breakfast blend with a shot of JUSTICE.

Unfortunately for justice, the robbing, two timing, explorer driving bastard got away. He has not been found yet, but if you see a suspicious looking individual with a hazelnut aroma to him, that’s no coincidence. Turn that bastard in. However if you can’t do it yourself, YOU KNOW WHO TO CALL.

BatmanChristianBale

Bet you thought i was gonna say Ghostbusters, huh? HA. I’m so clever.

I have advice for the Coffee Culprit. We’ll just call him that from now on, i’m sure referring to him as “the bastard” is starting to hurt his deviant feelings.

I noticed you’ve been watching too much Pulp Fiction good sir. I bet you thought, “Hey, if Tim Roth can rob a coffee joint with his skeletor girlfriend, then why can’t i?” Believe me, that thought has come to the best of us, you’re not the only one.

She is very creepy.

But you are quick to forget that if you’re going to make a mocha heist, Samuel L. Jackson WILL be waiting for you, ready to “pop a cap in yo ass”. Now fortunately for you, that didn’t happen. However you probably look like my pal Mason Verger now, which is just as rewarding i’m sure. From one Mocha Joe to another, just pay for your coffee.

Secondly, if you want to successfully rob a coffee house then you’ll need to assemble the right team. In this case, a Brew Crew. Even the dumbest of the dumb know that. The Legion of Doom, Hello? Your odds are now more likely towards a successful robbery with this plan. However i must warn you, with every great Brew Crew comes a great opposite trying to stop you. And i think these are about the last type of people you wanna mess with.

And trust me, you don’t wanna mess with Blossom. Not on a good day. She’s as dangerous as she is cute. So again, Mr. JavaJackass, please. Just pay for your coffee.

I feel bad for trying to assist our  fellow Espresso-hoe, so my final piece of advice will be this, dont come rolling in one of these and expect a successful deviant escape.

ford explorer

They’ll laugh at you, just like they laughed at me. It’s only $1.60. Por favor, pagar por su caf√©.

So what have we learned here? If you don’t pay for your coffee, mark my words you WILL not make it out with a smile on your face and crime on your malevolent conscience. You will go out with a frown, and crime on your malevolent conscience. So to our fellow MochaJoe/JavaJackass/CoffeeCulprit/CappucinoBambino/Bastard, i will leave you with this the obvious message……Just pay for your freakin’ coffee man. It’s not worth a felony and a mashed potato looking face. And i promise if you pay, the coffee will just taste THAT much sweeter. Do the right thing. That goes for all the Fuicazoids.

I’m gonna go make some coffee now. Peace out friends.

By the way, before i forget I told a friend of mine that i was gonna post his picture on my blog for reasons that i dont quite remember. I was probably infatuated by his presence, then again everyone is. So here you go America, my dear friend Mike Landsman!

Thank you Mike, i now have “Handsome Harrison Ford” in my search engine. Then again….everyone does.

Breaking News: Kanye West has beef with God

Ladies and Gentlemen, Kanye West is at it again.

god

kanye

So what is the cause of the bickering this hour? It appears that God has not been giving Kanye West the credit Kanye West deserves, according to Kanye West. It has been exactly 35 years that the world has seen the infamous Hip-Hop artist and not once has God acknowledged the greatness that is Kanye West. According to Kanye West.

“I’ve been providing the earth with beautiful Hip-Hop for¬†nearly 17 years now..” Muttered the angry composer, “And not once has God mentioned that he hand crafted me personally for the sole purpose of bringing unfathomable and¬†incomparable¬†Hip-Hop to the music industry…”

Kanye West then went on to make outrageous claims, such as being the reincarnation of Auguste Comte.¬†What started off as an angry altercation of harsh words, soon¬†escalated¬†into an even angrier altercation of even harsher words. All of which, coming from only Kanye West. Kanye West also stated that he will only be referred to as “The” Kanye West from now on.

“I can’t believe He’d do me like this, I even wrote one of my first song’s for his son!”

It is believed that The Kanye West wrote one of his first hit singles ‘Jesus Walks,’ as not only a shout out to one of his favorite people, but as a heavy hint to credit The Kanye West’s own greatness. According to The Kanye West. Consider it a glorified pat on the back.

It was only after 17 years in the music industry where The Kanye West began to get fed up with “God’s apathy,” when The Kanye West started to make very cruel statements. Statements that, like everything that comes out of (or in) The Kanye West’s mouth, are bound to offend.

In the name of sanctity and civility, the comments will not be posted.

Sources say God had no comment to retort, but heavily implied that you reap what you sow.

It’s well known that this isn’t the first time The Kanye West stirred up heat among others in the media. From humble¬†beginnings, such as blaming Bush for Hurricane Katrina. A natural disaster¬†that Bush obviously had complete control over. To crushing the soul of then up and coming pop sensation Taylor Swift at an awards show, who apparently did NOT have the greatest music video of all time. (according to The Kanye West’s standards.) And most recently, The Kanye West attacking Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z on Timberlake’s comeback single, “Suit and Tie.”

The Kanye West: “I got love for Hov, but i ain’t F—ing with that ‘Suit and Tie’.”

The Kanye West also then continued on to tell the Grammy’s to suck a certain peculiar limb. If only they had mouths.

These venomous acts led society to pin a variety of nicknames to the world’s most¬†narcissistic¬†rapper, such as “The world’s most narcissistic rapper” or, “Imma let you finish” to a fan favorite, “Douchebag.”

Some would say that after constantly being bashed by society and crying like a prepubescent girl on national television, all of The Kanye West’s wildest statements would come to a¬†halt.

But that didn’t stop The Kanye West.

In an outrageous attempt to challenge the almighty father, it is believed that The Kanye West climbed to the top of the Empire State Building with a 9 mm and thus began repeatedly shooting rounds into the sky. It wasn’t until the fire department lured the troubled The Kanye West (with a giraffe hand puppet) onto the safety of their ladders when the firing finally ceased.

Since then, The Kanye West has been on probation and agreed to see a therapist every week for as long as The Kanye West should live.

“I dont know what was getting in to me,” The Kanye West said, “My life was just a blur, i just needed to get in touch with who i really am-…..”

And it was at that moment, when The Kanye West believed to have an epiphany. It turns out, (According to The Kanye West) That The Kanye West¬†IS God, and has been trying to get in touch with that part of himself all his life. It wasn’t until he’d face the lowest of his low that The Kanye West would finally find out his true destiny.

What is The Kanye West’s destiny you ask?

It is unknown. Before any explanation, The Kanye West took off to whereabouts unknown and hasn’t been seen ever since. So if you see The Kanye West, be warned. The Kanye West doesn’t take anyone alive. The Kanye West doesn’t resent. The Kanye West will stop at nothing to-

Hold on a second, yes i believe im getting a message from the president. Mr. president you have the floor.

Well there you have it folks. Straight from the oval office, The Kanye West is a jackass. As for the Daniel Fuica however, The Daniel Fuica actually takes a liking towards The Kanye West’s music, but thinks The Kanye West needs to Change his tude. With that being said The Daniel Fuica still feels guilty.

Stay tuned for later in the evening when we cover more of this top story, as well as the debut of a new Mumford and Sons track titled “140 BPM, strum, repeat”.
