The Bachelor: A Feminist Rant

  1. so today i saw an article about two people from a previous season of the bachelor split up after the show ended
  2. and all these girls were upset and distraught that these two people were not together anymore
  3. and it dawned on me:
  4. THESE PEOPLE DON'T FUCKING REALIZE THIS IS REALITY T.V. AND THE WHOLE THING IS RIGGED AND HE'S GETTING PAID TO DO ALL THE STUFF ON THE SHOW BECAUSE HE IS A PRETTY BOY AND THEY ARE SPLITTING UP BECAUSE THEIR CONTRACT WITH ABC IS OVER
  5. this is not "goals" and this is not "true love" people !!!!!
  6. do me a favor: picture the love of your life
  7. now, is that person loyal? thoughtful? trustworthy?
    (probably)
  8. okay.
  9. this person you described is literally the complete opposite of the men on this show
  10. this dude on the bachelor who is the "man of your dreams" is hooking up with 25 other girls, manipulating them into thinking they're in love, follows a script week to week and eliminates the girl chosen by the director, and the same thing happens over and over again
  11. AND THIS GUY IS GETTING PAID SO MUCH MONEY TO PRETEND TO LIKE YOU WHEN HE HAS NO RESPECT FOR YOU IT'S ACTUALLY SO SAD
  12. AND WOMEN AT HOME WATCH THIS HAPPEN EVERY WEEK AND FALL FOR IT EVERY TIME
  13. ladies: please do yourself a favor and stop watching shows like the bachelor
  14. i know, it's entertaining and you get sucked in and we as humans are attracted to any story relating to love
  15. but i don't understand how you could consider yourself a feminist and support that show
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  16. it displays a false reality and gives you unreasonable expectations of love and will only lead to disappointment if you set your standards too high
  17. OR low because men should treat you with more respect than the bachelor treats these 25 women who he probably doesn't even bother learning the names of
  18. and nothing is sexier than respecting women, am i right?
  19. RIGHT.
