Lonely Soul

Loneliness is something I can try to bare
It eats away at my soul
It’s like I’m choking trying to gasp for air
It is out of my control

Today a girl I follow on twitter tweeted this as a joke and it’s funny to some extent, but what if I tweeted something like “you know what I call girls 120 lbs and over? friends.” If I (a guy) said that, it would be social suicide. I would be labeled an asshole or a jerk and lose many of my female and maybe even male followers, but when she tweeted this she only got favorites and everyone thought it was hilarious. I’m not a sensitive person and it didn’t make me upset or anything, but it made me think that we definitely live in a double standard society. If a girl doesn’t date a guy because of his looks (or in this case height), there is no consequence, but if a guy doesn’t date a girl because of her weight or looks we are labeled shallow. I don’t know I’m just venting.
