In this episode of Whormones, we, Alia and Jaqi discuss a few articles about cheating, arranged marriages, and Tinder. We start out with an oddly placed article in the Yahoo business section, which states that the French do not care about cheating. As Jaqi points out, this is one of those articles that takes the information it wants from other sources and manipulates it to make a completely different point. The article also points out that most French flower shops have signs that say, “Don’t forget your mistress!” Considering the placement of the article, our guess is someone is either planning ahead, or trying to point out some “facts” in a troublesome relationship.
One of the articles taken out of context was an article from comedian, Aziz Ansari found in Time magazine titled, “Everything You Knew About Love is Wrong.” In Ansari’s article he talks about how the internet is changing the dating and love. He describes his parents marriage, which was an arranged marriage. He compares how his Father picked his mother to be his life partner in a half hour time because she was tall; and the thorough steps he takes to find a restaurant to only end up eating a peanut butter and banana sandwich. We discuss how we’re not fans of arranged marriages, but understand the point Ansari is trying to make. People have too many choices now.
With online dating and apps such as Tinder people trying to find their “soulmates” think they have a better chance of finding the right one. But with divorce basically at 50% and infidelity being a big percentage of that, are online dating sites and apps like Tinder helping people, or are they only helping people find the idea of what they think they want? Find out we what we think!
The Whormones Podcast
The Whormones podcast is an anti-feminist, feminist podcast where two completely different points of view of sexuality, feminism, and life are discussed. The politically incorrect humor and witty banter featuring Alia Janine’s wilder and more sexually experienced interpretations, and Jaqi Furback’s biting and more conservative demeanor makes these two the modern day odd couple.
