5 Reasons Women Shouldn’t Get Mad Over Instagram Likes
Last night on Love & Hip Hop an interesting situation came up. When Yandy and Mandeecees started talking about moving in with each other, she mentioned that he got an iPad thrown at his face, for liking too many booty pictures. I immediately thought is it really that serious.
I sent out a tweet on my @BlogXilla twitter account asking my readers:
The response was a bit surprising. Through out all the replies the top one was insecurities. Until Necole Bitchie stepped up and replied:
It’s an interesting thought process, and while the idea of my lady not following me instagram bothers me a little bit, at the end of the day, I think Necole actually has a point.
Before I go into why she has a point I just want to highlight some of the other replies I got when I asked for a Good Reason why women get mad when their man likes other woman’s pictures.
KayKi Speaks says, “There is no good reason. It’s the same when some women can’t take their man noticing another fine woman. They aren’t blind..like?” Surely men aren’t blind, but there has to be a valid reason why women get upset over their man liking a booty picture. Would these women get upset over this man watching a music video, or even an episode of Love & Hip Hop. Maybe next week I’ll count the number of times the camera zooms in on Tahiry and Erica Mena’s ass.
Heartbreak Cake replied, “This is what separates MySpace from other social networks. Your importance in someone’s life was on public display.” Another great point in my book, considering that Instagram just lets the world know what you like and has no concept of letting people know who you like.
But still with a lot of replies I found myself getting no where until Tamar Bazin replied with a bit of brilliance. She said, “No woman wants to see the kinds of women their man lusts after. Leaves room for insecurities and comparisons.” Now this is something I can understand. It’s the ugly truth. Take myself for instance, I can appreciate a girl with a big booty, but as most of you know, I like my ladies slim, model like, fit and beautiful.
A fat ass is candy in my book, and I don’t want to settle down with the brown M&M, but i digress. These pictures we like are mere passing images in our mind. At least for me, when I look at a model’s pictures I am more or less liking the fact that she’s working, but then again this is my business. Sometimes I like pictures to return to them so I can post them. Sometimes I like the pictures because these women are my friends and I am applauding their efforts to promote.
Since I am in the business of sex, there is rarely a time when these images move me to be like DAMN that’s sexy, but again most men aren’t sex bloggers. Also most men have a thing for tits and ass that I cannot understand. There is this girl, I went to school with. She is not attractive. On a scale of 1-10 I would rate her a 4. Still if she post a picture of her pimpled covered breast or her round crater covered ass, she’ll get the most comments about how sexy she is. I am perplexed.
Not to mention photoshop, filters, airbrushing and the magic of cameras, these pictures dudes are not that attractive in real life. So should women really be upset? As Necole says she wouldn’t follow her man on social network, I asked her why because my weak ego would want my lady to follow me, even if it would cause problems.
She’s absolutely right. So I decided to provide 5 great reasons why women shouldn’t get upset when their man likes another chick’s pictures on Instagram.
1. We would all be far more productive if we used that time we spent checking out who liked what, and arguing over a simple like of a nice booty picture. So productive that we could make money for a romantic vacation for two.
2. Girls who post sexy pictures get so many likes on their pictures that they are no paying attention to one like, with no comment. Now if your dude is commenting, “Drools, you look like a (bag of money emoticon) I’d stick my (eggplant emoticon) in your (apple emoticon) bottom.” then you have a problem. Until then…
3. Look but don’t touch has always been accepted in the streets, but why should instagram be any different?
4. Don’t you have better things to do?
5. Because you should start liking random dude’s pictures and see what he says about it.
Why do you think women get mad over instagram likes, is it stupid or a valid reason to argue?
