More Anti-Valentine’s links…

In celebration of anti-valentine’s day (Feb 13), I thought I’d share some links to some things entertaining, and some just plain disturbing…

First, my favorite anti-Valentine’s photo – courtesy of Ron A., who holds an anti-Valentines party (almost) every year…

Death to cupid and small fluffy bears!

Next, check out this article where CBC talks about “Loathing Love’s day“.

For the clueless who still want to do Valentine’s day right – these are some really BAD gift ideas, (courtesy of Heather at dooce.com). 

And as much as I can’t stand the commercialism around Valentine’s day, I can’t abide by fundamentalists of any kind, especially not THIS kind

And in truly bitter fashion, today, on CBC’s “The Current”, they were talking about alibi networks, spy stores, surveillance services, and illicit liaison services.  Just in case your “romance” isn’t with the one you love, or you suspect your partner of cheating.  (And you thought WE were heartless!)

 

This brings me to the quintessential question.  If you don’t TRUST your partner, why are you there?  How can you really love someone if you don’t trust them?  Rather than spend money spying on your spouse, why not just GET THE FUCK OUT?   

Now you can choose to believe that I am this loveless embittered woman, but the truth of the matter is that I do believe people can love, care for and be good for each other… I just think that the good ones are few and far between, and that most adults aren’t nearly as grown up as they need to be in order to maintain a healthy, equal relationship with another adult.   

And in order to fight back against the whole “dote on the female” valentine’s day thing, that I find almost more offensive than the hearts and saccharine cards, I’m taking the bf out to BestBuy and FutureShop tonight, to go shopping for fun geek toys.  Now THAT’s Romance!

    Oh, dear. Have I become an icon for the playful mockery of commercial manipulation of seasonal sentimentality?

    I’m flattered!
