You should be happy your boyfriend wants a Hello Kitty wedding. It'll be enjoyable and plus y'all can get matching Hello Kitty rings. This is awesome.
I don't know if you were being sarcastic or not but I agree. OP, you are so lucky! I would do this in all seriousness. But if it's not your thing, maybe you can compromise. If the bridesmaids wear pink dresses, the men can wear pink ties and maybe just an HK pocket square. You can have an HK cake.
If you're surprised by this, then you probably shouldn't be dating the guy.
I can't speak slowly, so please read it slowly. Situational irony is when the opposite of what is expected occurs. Here we see people calling a man gay and reacting negatively to his liking a feminine character. One would expect the same reaction if a woman liked a more masculine character or toy. If the reaction was opposite, and she received praise, rather than mocking, then it would be the opposite of what is expected. If the reaction is the opposite of what is expected, it's ironic. Cleae? Good. Now stop trying to sound superior.
First off, I believe the word is 'clear'. Secondly: "Agreeeeed. Didn't you get the hint when he bought you the strap-on? Or when you found his dildo? Ironically, if a girl wanted a Hot Wheels wedding, we'd all say she's awesome." Let's see. You're making an assumption that he bought a strap on, implying he's gay. Let's say he is gay. Not all gays buy strap ons. Many straight guys buy strap ons, as well as gays... so just the simple act of buying one and wanting his girlfriend to use it on him doesn't automatically make him gay. He may enjoy anal penetration, since it apparently stimulates the prostate gland. Most straight guys DO enjoy their prostate being stimulated, however not all are comfortable with anal sex, or even anal stimulation via a finger. Because he's wanting sex with his girlfriend in this hypothetical situation, since the girl is not a man, the guy is not gay. He may be bisexual. It's not ironic if a girl wants a Hot Wheels party etc. It's a double standard like I said, mainly in that we stereotype and become homophobes when we hear that a male likes something feminine, but we think it's cool and "hot" when a girl likes something masculine. We don't like when males wear feminine clothing, yet we have no issue when women don masculine suits and work attire. World of Warcraft can be see as a "nerdy" game. Females who play are seen as cool, whereas guys who play are typically seen as losers who have nothing better to do with their lives (or lack thereof). Again, this is not my view, this is just proving a point. I don't see the males who play as entirely nerdy and I don't assume they have no life; rather I'm just demonstrating what most people stereotype them to be. I'm also not stating that everyone thinks this way; I'm generalizing. Gay males are still "feared" for lack of a better word, but lesbians are "hot" and nobody sees anything wrong with that. Do you see what I'm saying here? I'm sorry if I'm speaking too slowly for you.
You didn't catch that the first part of my statement was a joke. Funny? Depends who reads it. I know it's a double standard, I agreed. I, personally, fine double standards ironic, for the already stated reason of opposite response. I'm not denying it's a double standard. I think that double standards are a perfect example of situational irony. You can have both. And I think girls who play WoW are just as bad ;P
I caught the joke. *facepalm* I shot it right back at you. Thank you for understanding the language of sarcasm. I'm also going by my personal experience, so you're entitled to your opinion about women who play WoW. Anyway, you didn't say until your very last post which I am currently responding to that you thought a double standard was a perfect example of situational irony. If that was your entire point, you should have stated that and made your point more clear.
Um, you probably don't want to say that Steff is wrong while using the word 'your' when you mean 'you're'. She's going to murder you for that and many other things in your comment (like saying str8 when you mean straight). And while I'm posting anyway... what do you mean by your "holy rollers" statement?
117 - Sorry,*, Steph/Steff*, you're*, wrong (again)*... even though the brackets were unnecessary, "straight"*, strap-ons*, To*, straight*, they're*, and I assume "Holy Rollers" is a name of something, so that should also be capitalized. Also, "lol" is not a sentence on its own, and should be capitalized after a period. You forgot the punctuation at the end of your sentence (after 'lol'), and I think you should research these things before you open your mouth. I have, which is why I made my point here. Don't tell me I'm wrong unless you're 110% sure I am, and don't even THINK about telling anyone they're wrong until you make your own post 100% correct (including all grammar, spelling, and "factual information"). And just for good measure, straight guys do exist; I've dated many and am currently in a relationship with one. Just because a guy likes anal stimulation does not mean he's a "closet case"; there is such a thing as bisexuality. Also, it's possible for a straight guy to like it, as well. Bisexuality/homosexuality is defined as a preference for either both sexes, or males rather than females. There, I saved you half a step. Anyway, you should look up some of the stuff I mentioned in my posts since you clearly didn't before you posted the last time. Thanks.
