We be to Woman What 'Key be to Lock'

Facebook graphic about double standards
There are many double-standards in our society. There are too many instances where behavior is acceptable for someone, or some group, but not acceptable for others.

One of the biggest seems to be along gender lines. There are many behaviors deemed acceptable for men, but not for women. There are also some things that are acceptable for women to do, but not for me. Nowhere do these double standards appear greater than when they relate to sex.

My brother CAPS recently posted the graphic above on his Facebook page. It is a funny explanation of why it is acceptable for men to have plenty of women, but it is inappropriate for women too.

A women - presumably - posted the following status message on Facebook (punctuation added):

"It is odd how society sees things. Let's say a guy sleeps with all these girls, "He's the man!" or a stud," she writes. "But if a girl does, she's a total slut or whore. Is society sexist?"

Here's how one man responded.

"Well, think about it this way. If a key can open a bunch of locks, it's viewed as a Master Key, and is awesome to have," Brandon writes. "But if a lock is opened by a lot of different keys, well, that's a pretty shitty lock of you ask me."

But does the metaphor go deeper?

The purpose of a lock is to protect something of importance, of value. In this instance, the lock being the woman, more explicitly, her vagina. And the man's penis is the key.

But what is the purpose of opening the lock?

The purpose of opening a lock is like going to an ATM. You either want to withdraw, deposit or cash, or check your balance. Too many people are involved in casual sex. They just putting they key in the lock to see if it will fit.

But just because you can fit your key in the lock, it doesn't mean that it will open. Even some "Master Keys" can fit inside locks that they cannot open. Likewise, just because your penis fits inside, it does not mean you have truly opened the lock. Because a woman is not just a physical thing. A woman is a spiritual vessel.

The vagina is the passageway to eternal life.

When one looks at the Kemetic symbol of the Ankh (right), you are looking at the symbolic representation of man and woman, or a lock and a key.

Atop, the circle and the horizontal line represents the woman's opening. Below, the staff represents the man's shaft.

It is through the union of man and woman that the child is born. This creation of life, perpetuated generation after generation, is eternal life.

We be to women what key be to lock.



So, men may think it is cool to go around putting your key in every lock it fits into, that's the best way to defile your key. If you forcing a key into holes it don't belong in, there's how you ruin the teeth. When the teeth of a key is filed down, it will no longer open the key it was made to fill.

Likewise, a lock that has a bunch of keys and other crap put inside it will no longer be useful. Have you ever seen someone put gum, glue or even rubber cement in a lock?

Brothers: What key is on your key chain? What does your key open?

Sisters: What is your lock protecting? Who has the key?

I remember when I was a child, I used to keep my house key on a shoelace around my neck. Many youngstas still do that. But when they become adults, they are not so cautious with their keys.

As for locks, I remember those old Master locks with the combination glued to the back. Memorize your combination and destroy the code. Don't want anyone cracking the code w/o authorization.

to people that say this analogy, i like to tell them "well, u always need a few spare extra keys, just in case ur key is "lost" or u need to open the lock, but theres no key ;) "

Im pretty sure you ^^^ missed thepoint of this, and that you are a whore.

Those "few spare extra keys" would all be, necessarily:

1) Either the same exact key as the original - so they aren't really OTHER keys but exact replicas of the same key (like a model made out of the guy's ****)

2) A master key, which is good enough for many locks

Either way, Anon @ March 17, the analogy holds and your little "out" doesn't.

That master key-lock analogy goes back to ancient China.

A key that opens many locks is a master key, but a lock that can be opened by any key is useless

That was a pretty sexist culture back then. I guess we haven't learned much since then on the subject.

Side note, people who claim other people's ideas as their own are pretty useless.
