One of the latest bits of insanity: Dating apps are allegedly asking if you've taken the Covid stab and displaying a "badge" if you have.
I haven't verified this personally since I have no use for such things, but it's allegedly either there or being rolled out.
To which, if I was single and younger, especially of potential child-siring age, I'd say "thanks for the warning."
Indeed, the malicious (or shall we say, "predatory") men out there just got fair warning of who is a **** 'em and leave "fun" date. Took the stab? You're off the marriage-potential list permanently. Why? Potential life-long medical complications, that's why. Do I want to marry someone who may have given themselves an auto-immune disease three or five years down the road? Oh Hell No. But if she's cute, well, the bed awaits -- for now. When Lupus or similar "screw you" lifetime medical issues make their appearance she can enjoy the company of her cats -- that wasn't a random chance thing we all are forced to face as adults and is always part of the deal it was self-inflicted stupidity and her other half didn't get a vote.
Never mind the rather clear problem that is presented to anyone (of either sex) contemplating a permanent relationship with someone who is willing to stab themselves with an experimental drug. There's a legitimate reason to do it, by the way: You already know you're at very high risk of a respiratory virus killing you, so despite the unknowns the math pencils out. Ok, thanks for the warning again; you aren't in good health and don't expect to remain that way. Is that person marriage and child-raising material? Naw, but a **** is all good.
Then there's those who can be bribed cheap -- you know, with a donut, or a lottery ticket? That's great marriage material too, right? I mean, let's face facts: A healthy 20-something person has a statistical zero risk of being killed by Covid and half of them probably already had it and may not even know so they didn't take the shot to protect their own health after careful deliberation and an antibody test first, right? How does this relate to long-term relationships? Simple: There's always some ******* who is richer, no matter how much you have and she just branded herself as willing to sell her future cheap. VERY cheap. Thanks for the warning; it's a hell of a lot better for a guy to conclusively find this out before he needs a divorce lawyer! Make sure the rubbers stay in your wallet so she can't "pin" them before use and for the love of God flush the damn thing after you're done so she can't fish it out of the trash can!
It's even worse from the male future family evaluation side. Some guys do want families. Was there permanent damage done to that capability in terms of bearing kids? We know that those nice mRNA shots show up in the ovaries. Oh, chick-a-dee didn't know that before rolling up her sleeve? Well, that's what haste gets you -- not bothering to wait for the science to figure it out. I have no idea and neither does she if that's a problem but she took the stab voluntarily. So about that willingness to have said family and put your relationship in front of preening around virtue-signaling on Instabitch and Facesucker, eh? Maybe that will all work out ok, but it seems to me that by the time we will know with reasonable certainty the window will be closed on the baby factory as only high-risk (for both woman and child) and maybe even IVF, if any, pregnancies will be possible. Again: No thanks; I'll take the woman who didn't deliberately risk permanent compromise of her reproductive capacity so she could get into Lollapalooza.
But -- that doesn't mean that when the "hot" is there you can't enjoy it for a while.
I don't think young women have any idea what they did to themselves here and the "social ****ing" apps just made the selection process even easier. Yeah, advertising you got stabbed will get you plenty of dick but none of it will want to stick around. Have fun on the cock rollercoaster ladies.
By the time they figure it out their sexual market value will be in the toilet and their hole will look like someone ran a train through it -- because they will have basically allowed a whole bunch of men to do exactly that.
Congratulations, fools, and the best part of it is that some of you actually pay to use those apps.
