So I’m not sure how, but Pinterest has gotten the idea that I used to be a man.
You know how Pinterest sends you posts you might like based upon what you browse, what you save, the boards you create, and so on? I mainly look for vegetarian and vegan recipes on Pinterest. And even though I never look at food with meat in it, Pinterest still hasn’t caught on yet that I’m not interested in “10 Meatloaf Recipes Like Your Mother Used To Make” or “Try These Fantastic Ribs!” It’s like Pinterest doesn’t want me to be a vegetarian and thinks tempting me with beef Pho recipes will make me revert back to my meat-eating ways.
So, now, Pinterest has decided that I used to be a man. Every few days I get notifications like this…..
(Excuse the scribbling, I was just covering up a friend’s name and picture)
And these are the pins on that board……
What the hell, Pinterest?! I am slightly offended. Not that feminisation is a bad thing, but it’s kind of crummy when someone thinks you’ve done it and you haven’t. Like the time I was at a gay bar back in Austin in my early twenties and this guy kept on following me around and asking to buy me drinks and finally I asked him if he was straight or gay because he WAS cute but I was pretty sure he didn’t like women. And he stared at me for a moment with wide eyes and his hand over his mouth and then he laughed and said, “Ohmigod, I totally thought you were cross-dressing.”
I was devastated. Since then I’ve had a strong dislike of gay bars for no other reason than that I’m always afraid someone will think I’m a man in woman’s clothes again. It’s not a fun thing to be mistaken for. Definitely doesn’t do wonders for the ego.
To be honest though, there were a few pins on that Pinterest board that I was like “hmmm…..I could actually use that knowledge…” Like “How to Walk in High Heels” which I’ve NEVER been able to do gracefully or the “3 Ways to Tape Your Breasts to Make Them Look Bigger”. Although Tom already knows how big my boobs are, so really, who am I trying to fool?
Tom’s video game server is open on the other monitor (he’s got a fancy set-up) and it’s going through advertisements of different games and it keeps going back to this one……
This is a real game. A game that someone has probably made a lot of money off of. It even says on the screen that of 6,140 reviews the consensus is “overwhelmingly positive”.
What is wrong with people?!
I looked up the guy who made this game, he is an Australian game developer whose name is unknown but goes by Bonerman_Inc. And he has gotten well known for taking people’s horrible video game ideas and actually turning them into games you can play. On Twitter people tweet him their game ideas and he makes it a reality.

I think his “Shower With Dad” game is tasteless and weird and blah blah blah…but the cat video game is pretty darn funny, ya gotta admit.
Tom and I are getting tattoos tonight.
I’ll tell you all about it tomorrow.
