The Skittles Girl


A Manosphere Cliche is the concept of a being a Skittles Man.  That is,a man who treats his woman indifferently at best, or poorly at worst.  And she loves it.  And she loves him.  Even if a major gift to her from him is a bag of Skittles.  What kind of woman is such a woman?  This is a good question.

To start with, I would not think that she is particularly well balanced, either in mental stability or successful life skills.  Probably she lives by the tingle, and dies by the tingle.   But one cannot live by tingles alone. Hence, her life is out of balance with respect to this, and therefore with respect to everything important. The fact that she would be this way shows that she really has not developed the outlook required to be successful.  It is almost like the kid who vows to grow up and buy the candy store, and then ties to do so.  Probably not a recipe for long term success this is.

But then again, perhaps some Skittles Girls have successful careers. But the fact that they are really Skittles Girls at heart pretty much invalidates this as they ride down the tracks to their destined train wreck.

Commenters, what do you believe a Skittles Girl to be, and what do you think is their individual long term prognosis?

    I have a slight problem with this. Whenever I think of Skittles, it reminds me of the happy wife who’s highlight of the day was to tear into her one bag of her favorite candy. Her husband told me that it was magic the way she could make them disappear. I thought of David Copperfield and suggested that he could make them reappear. Her eyes came out on stems.

    Women want to live inside a man’s frame. That sort of indifference puts her in his frame and….. believe it or not speaks to her as protection as well as tingles. He is strong enough he doesn’t have to bend to her to keep her around

    Overt dominance, super strong masculine frame etc not only makes them wet but feel secure in her 1st lime of defense ie the man her owns her

    From my pov the whole question comes from the wrong perspective.

    The first San Francisco elementary school to make bathrooms gender neutral has proudly removed the circles, triangles, and stick figure signs from the kindergarten and first-grade bathrooms that delineate the differences between the sexes.

    Principal Sam Bass of Miraloma Elementary said the change at the beginning of the school year was prompted by the needs of six to eight students who are outside calling themselves simply boys or girls, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Bathrooms for children older than first grade will be altered in coming years, even outside bathrooms that have multiple stalls.

    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/does-andrew-cuomo-think-only-women-can-be-victims-of-sexual-assault/article/2571483

    In a recent speech at New York University, Gov. Andrew Cuomo appeared to suggest that only women can be victims of sexual assault and that only men are perpetrators.

    “Every woman should know that — that they have more rights than they had before,” Cuomo said. “And every male should know … you’re not getting away with what you got away with before.”

    Yes, women are more likely to report being sexually assaulted. They’re also more likely to report that a man was the perpetrator. But there are male victims of sexual assault, and there are female perpetrators.

    Part of the lack of male reporting may come from the stigma of being a male victim. One sees it most prominently in cases involving high school students and their teachers. When a male teacher has sex with a female student, the story is reported as a helpless underage woman being taken advantage of by a man in a position of power. But when a female teacher has sex with a male student, it is suggested he wanted it. You know, because the assumption is that all that men want is sex, all the time.

    Such bias against male students is prevalent on college campuses, where an alleged epidemic of sexual assaults on female students has led to an evisceration of due process rights and a guilty-until-proven-innocent mentality.

    Cuomo’s remarks come as he promotes his latest campaign to combat this alleged epidemic.

    Just passing through, again…
    I’m not of the opinion that women like to be treated poorly, which seems to be a pretty common theme in the sphere. My husband treats me very very well and always has. I don’t know anyone whose partner treats her with that level of consideration.

    However, I’m not big into gifts. Mike actually called a few weeks back and had me on speaker phone at work and asked when our anniversary is. I knew since the phone was on speaker something was up. Honestly, I can never remember the exact date. I got it within one day though, and you could hear laughing in the background. They couldn’t believe I don’t remember my own anniversary. He put me on speaker because one of the guys he works with was celebrating his 30th anniversary and couldn’t figure out what to get his wife because she’s really really picky and into gifts, and he has bought her so many over the years he’s out of ideas. But I’ve never been into that…anniversaries, no. Birthdays, why celebrate that? I like mother’s day though, we traditionally go out to breakfast as a family on that day. That’s about it. I’m not even a Christmas person. Mike is the Christmas person.

    It seems a strange thing to me to weigh the value of a person’s relationship by the value of the gifts. I don’t know any two people who value each other more than Mike and I, and I know a lot of people who “celebrate” to the point of the absurd (their first date anniversary, first “got back together” anniversary, first “real” anniversary, and birthdays are celebrated for an entire week not just a day). They’re always very unhappy and insecure people with relationships that are not to be envied.

    http://dailycaller.com/2015/09/04/lawmakers-may-punish-a-university-for-being-too-politically-correct/

    Lawmakers in Tennessee are promising to bring the state’s flagship college to heel after it grabbed headlines for telling students to use more “gender-neutral pronouns.”

    The hoopla started at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville (UT) when the school’s Pride Center director Donna Braquet posted an online guide on what pronouns to use to refer to people. The guide noted that some people, rather than going by “he” or “she,” may prefer to go by one of “dozens” of gender-neutral pronouns, such as “ze” or “xe.” The guide suggested that professors should ask for preferred pronouns when calling roll, encouraged people to add their “preferred pronoun” when introducing themselves, and even suggested that simply asking strangers for their pronoun was a good policy.

    While the guide was taken down following public backlash, some state lawmakers say its very existence is a call to action. On Thursday, 32 Tennessee lawmakers sent a letter to UT’s board of trustees condemning the pronoun crusade as a ludicrous waste of money

    Q: Commenters, what do you believe a Skittles Girl to be, and what do you think is their individual long term prognosis?

    A: Skittles Girls have poor self-esteem, and don’t get a lot of positive attention. Their mothers weren’t supportive or affirming, and their fathers were distant and unfeeling. They may not be among the best looking in their group or school, and don’t often get asked out on dates. So when a male shows them some attention, their response to getting any attention at all tends to encourage him to continue to show her an ounce of notice so that she’ll deliver a pound in return.

    This is the kind of girl feminists actively seek, for if they can get her to see how she’s being used, she becomes one of the most militant man-haters possible. As she’s never had any good relations with men, she might very well take a walk on the wild side. Her only regret MIGHT be that she isn’t likely to become a mother herself. If she doesn’t go lesbian, she has too many defenses up for any man to get through to her. She will likely try to claim that she prefers being single, yet is depressed and emotionally unstable. This leads to a life where things get worse until she cracks up, and ends up institutionalized or yet another sad suicide.

I got the impression he didn’t want to hit her (until he actually did) and she longed to be hit.

    Oh, about the elephants, I have an untested theory. I think that Alexander managed to bring back a few with him. Tha Carthoginians were great traders and Alexandria was close. The timing was right. Perhaps they were descended from elephants captured in India.
    I also learned something recently, there was a species of elephant native to North Africa. I think they were all killed off by the Romans in their games.

    African elephants would have been as dangerous to Hannibal’s troops as to the enemy, especially when wounded. I wonder if the elephant factor has been romanticized by “history”.

    Historians get a lot of things wrong. For example, at the times of the crusades the crusaders horses were lighter and more nimble than the Saracen horses. Historians had it the other way round, even suggesting the knights rode dray horses and shire horses. They came to those erroneous conclusions because they believed the knights’ armor was so heavy they had to be hoisted by cranes into the saddle. Swift, light bones horses couldn’t have carried the weight. In fact knights could vault into the saddle, do chin ups and climb ladders. Their armor was light tempered steel, like the stuff saw blades are made of, over light chain mail over tough woolen quilt.

    Another thing historians got completely wrong was Richard I (“the Lionheart”). They suggested he was a glory-seeking thickhead, a sort of wanna-be action man. In fact he was a brilliant general and master of logistics and he could fight like the devil.

    The only “horse style” I ever heard of was this:

    When I was shown how to do it, it was called a “flying horse kick”. Which sounds more manly than a “butterfly kick”. I was never able to pull it off, but it still looks cool.

    That thing Cill is talking about sounds kind of uncomfortable.

    I’ve just been schooled. Little did I know there’s an intellectually rigorous “solipsism test”. It’s actually possible to tell how solipsistic you are by the number of times you use the personal pronouns I, me, or my in a paragraph. I used it 8 times in *gasp* eight lines! This makes me very very solipsistic indeed…according to the brainiac who then proceeded to use those pronouns 13 times in 12 lines.

    (of course, there’s the subsequent…Yeah! High fives all around! Tell her she’s a solipsistic crack! We’re smart! We’re all individuals!”

    I’m in the process of finishing my kindle book (not the Pimpin’ series). That’s what’s causing this procrastination/burst of internet fetishism right now. I’m afraid. I’m afraid my book sucks, and people will hate it now that it’s done. It’s funny because when I started writing it on a lark, and it was just supposed to be a fun, silly book (which, it kind of is…unless I’m kiding myself). Now I’m all anxious about it. It’s like a really personal thing I’m throwing out there even though it’s not me, first person, it’s my “work”.

    I don’t know if other people feel this way or have this level of anxiety. I suspect I’m kind of out there on the anxious scale. BV? Is it like that for you when you publish a work or submit it? I suspect not. Mine is self-published, I haven’t even fielded it out there, I think the next one I will submit to publishers and see how it does (unless this one does really well, which would be nice but also shocking).

    Mike is the opposite of me. He could walk into a building tomorrow of a business he doesn’t even know, and take over the job of president of the company without breaking a sweat. He’d just think, “Yeah, I’m sure I can figure it out”.
    I get anxious over EVERYTHING. When I worked the floor as a nurse I would arrive a full hour beforehand to learn all about my patients labs/history/vitals read the nursing notes. If there was PT in the morning I’d make sure to call the therapists to know their schedule so I could give pain meds at the right time, and so forth (I actually caught a lot of stuff that way overlooked by others, too, I’d like to think I was a good nurse). I couldn’t stand being in that position and not knowing everything I could beforehand.

    I’m a nervous person. I wish I was different. I wish I had testosterone levels that gave me confidence and made me think I could take on the world. But, then I’d have a beard too, and a man jaw. Anyway, thanks for letting me rant. I needed that.

    We went to a party last night and a woman brought out a picture of her great grandmother with Ted Roosevelt. I guess she led the march for women to vote, and so forth. The conversation at that point turned pretty funny.

    I can’t remember the actual quip Mike made, but one of the ladies turned to him and said, “You don’t think women should vote?”

    He said, “No, I fully support women’s voting except I think they have to present evidence of what point they are in their cycle. For example, they can’t vote when they’re ovulating or they’ll just pick the handsome guy with a lot of testosterone. But, they can’t vote when they’re in their comfort cycle either, or they’ll just vote for the sensitive guy. And they can’t vote while they’re pregnant, because then they’ll just want a cuddler. And they can’t vote on their period because they’re angry. But, there two days a month when I think women can be trusted to vote, so the election cycle should be a month long.”

    Re: Solipsism
    It’s a common trope in the manosphere to accuse female commenters of being solipistic due to their frequent use of “me language”. Supposedly, this shows a more stuck up personality and/or self centered worldview…but this actually isn’t true. Women are usually taught (and may be more prone to it anyway, in some cases) to use language that revolves around their own opinions instead of broad generalizations, especially around men. (Hence why it’s so prevalent in the manosphere.)

    This usage of Me/I language helps to subconsciously let other readers know they are the “inferior” or at least have a view that is open to being changed. Students talking to their teachers, workers talking to their bosses, and yes, the more “submissive” partner talking to their SO are all good examples of this. I used to do this year’s ago, until it was pointed out that I typically used what he called “passive” language. Same basic thing. Now I specifically speak/write in more generalizations and broader terms, and it typically (not always, as we’ve seen here 😉) helps others to take me more seriously, especially in the business world. The only times I’ll slip into using more Me/I language is in defense of my personal beliefs.

    Re: Elephants
    Wouldn’t a leader such as Hannibal have used Indian elephants rather than African ones? They are smaller, weigh less, are more trainable, have larger stomachs to digest food for longer periods, and smaller ears which would help them retain heat better in a cooler environment.

    Re: Skittles girls
    I don’t know what to think of this, honestly. On one hand, if a partner is only accepting small/nearly valueless gifts because s/he thinks that’s all they deserve…yeah. Blurkel is correct that those types have self esteem issues.

    But to just be a type that’s easily pleased, or enjoys small-but-significant gifts? That’s not a problem. There’s a sweet shop close to my home that specializes in harder to find/custom candies, including fresh sugarized maple treats. My love goes nuts for these, so I’ll pick up a few before we get together. They’re not that expensive, but the fact that they make him happy and they’re not something easily obtainable by him is what counts.

    Funny story…Over at M3’s place, I was accused of being a typical solipistic female because my 3 paragraph long comment used Me/I language a total of 7 times in telling a personal account of something or other. A few hours later, that same guy told an anecdote of his own…and used 3x the amount of “I”s than mine did. When this was pointed out, no response was given. 😛

    Twas hysterical in retrospect, frustrating at the time.

    SO is almost the same, but has declined sex in the past due to depression and very rarely initiates, though he is a very responsive and active participant once we get going. It’s difficult, especially if I’ve been raring to go all day then find out he just wants to vent/talk about how he feels…But hey, that’s what being a friend is, right?

    It’s a trope not because women use I/ me; it’s because they want to make the conversation about themselves, how they are not like that, how X wouldn’t work on them, how they would prefer A over B etc.

    I realize all these are fluid concepts still getting hammered out but to some in the sphere, they seem to think alpha means offering no provision or protection whatsoever, that only a beta would do that. I disagree. Rollo for example hardly comes off as a beta, yet he is married, provides and protects his family, could poon slay but doesn’t. That rollo is a class act!
