Intellectual Whores?

11 December, 2003 (00:04) | Social Commentary

You may be asking where the following rant came from. Well, one of my good friends has turned me on to the idea of Intellectual Whoredom, a fanatical social construct that has garnered it’s own web site. So, before I discuss this, I suggest you go there and find out what it’s about. Just a warning: The guy who writes needs to learn to write. There’s a definition link in the top right-hand corner, but it may be a very VERY painful read. If you’d like to, you can skip to the end to see the mathematical proof of how Women = Evil.

Hmm, intellectual whores, eh? This going to be long, so brace yourself:

While their definition of an intellectual whore is both a reflection of perceived reality and a factor in the “Evil=Good” equation that belittles the mind in favor of the body, they completely miss on the basic tenets and philosophy of why this happens. In essence, the social standard of physical beauty is created due to incredible emphasis they put on the visual medium. No longer do we sit and listen or read nearly as much, and this, at the most simplified level, dulls other senses. Just as we prefer foods that taste good to food that are nutritious, we prefer people who are attractive in the first place and don’t require effort to discover the better parts of them.

There may well be some truth to this idea, but, ultimately, sex is the only level on which you can whore yourself out. Perhaps you can be an emotional whore, but intellectual endeavors by definitions are non-emotional and therefore detached.

So ultimately, the point is moot

If you ignore this principal and basic definition, then we should be able to agree that there is such a thing as an intellectual whore, and that no, a woman cannot be one. A woman can be an emotional whore, a physical whore, a religious whore, or a social whore. Unfortunately, this means I now I have to define them (except for physical whore which you should know).

An emotional whore is someone who is kept around for emotional support: sisters, mothers, and best friends generally qualify. Emotional whores aren’t there for the intellectual pursuits, but for letting a man explore his “feminine side.” Often, an emotional whore can end up in a relationship due to the closeness, and, in fact, most dating situations that continue without sex should be considered as emotional whore situations. Ego boosting is generally required

A religious whore is a priest, nun, rabbi, or any form of religious connection that remains the ONLY reason you go to them. Much like an emotional whore, these people are there for moral support and not much else. Of course, the level of trust is different, and often times, you are a little boy when the father acts as a religious whore. You don’t want that, now do you?

A social whore is something altogether different and is probably the most common type of whore. When you are with your friends, and they bring someone along who ends up attracted to you, and you still don’t want to hang out with them, but you put up with them because of who they’re friends with, they are a social whore. Social whores’ known aliases are “the Ugly Girl,” “Her Best Friend,” “the Wingman” or “the Sidekick.” Double dates often employ two social whores at the same time to appease our own fears. If anything, a social whore is a construct of our own society and should not be seen as a bad position to take. If you find yourself a social whore, however, be prepared to be discarded when your friends or acquaintances have fully made the leap into a new social group.

Having read the site thoroughy, the “leader” has an idea that has been grasped at a basic level, but the entire idea of being an intellectual whore is taken out of context. By reading his ponderings you can tell that a) he’s obsessed with sex, b) he’s attempted to make sex the primary point in his life, and c) anything besides sex is generally irrellavent. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but obviously, in seeing himself as an intellectual whore (when I have a hard time seeing him as anything close to intellectual), he has already decided to lash back and fight the system rather than working within it.

Now regardless of the actual existence of intellectual whores, the rest of the categories do exist, and they, in turn, lend credibility to the idea of the intellectual whore. Still, Jeopardy and other game shows would suddenly qualify as intellectual whores do to their desire for your viewership if intellectual whoredom does exist.

Women = Evil – A Mathematical Proof

I think we can all agree that Women require Time and Money.
Women = Time * Money
Now in our society Time equals Money.
Time = Money
So if Time equals Money, then Women equal Money squared.
Women = Money * Money = Money2
And since Money is the root of all Evil…
Evil = Money2
Then…
Women = Evil.

I’d like to extend a special thanks
to Emily Katz for bringing www.intellectualwhores.com to my attention
and
to James Uhes for the mathematical proof of Women = Evil.

  • No, being rude would’ve been taking the time to explain that I’m an ass and do not find said woman attractive in the least, especially after the rumors that have filtered down through the rest of the trivia night crowd, including explaining what those rumors are. That would be rude.
