We’ve all heard the story before: Woman is discriminated against for being too hot. What starts out as a case of compassion, ends up as a license to eye hump some formerly unknown Latina. That’s the story behind Debrahlee Lorenzana and Inés Sainz.
The story of Sainz was supposed to be about a NY Jets reporter that had some footballs thrown at her during practice. If she wasn’t attractive, the article would not have gained national attention. The real story soon became her butt. Similarly, the chase was on after Lorenzana alleges that she was fired from Citibank for being too hot (although she got breast implants to look like a Playmate).
In the case of Lorenzana, looking up pics were at least related to her claim that she’s hot, but how do you explain Sainz? When I first heard about Sainz on ESPN, all they showed was a side headshot of her. It never crossed my mind to search for more pictures of her because that wasn’t what the story was about.
We normalize eye humping (and otherwise sketchy behavior), but should we? I don’t want my girlfriend looking at pics of guys all day and she wouldn’t want me checking out other women. And yet that’s precisely what we do on Facebook or when a story like Sainz comes along.
I know most guys won’t agree with me, but I felt like a pervert when I looked at the Buzzfeed article with 10 different shots of Sainz’ butt.
I don’t live vicariously through other people. I have a smoking hot girlfriend; I don’t need to eye hump some female that I’ll never meet or go to a strip club (unless I’m forced to go for a bachelor party)
Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with finding other women attractive. There is a problem when you are wishing your significant other looked like her. Absolutely NOTHING good comes out of you comparing your significant other to another woman.
I believe that it all comes down to equality in a relationship. So the next time a viral eye-humping opportunity arises, put yourself in your significant other’s shoes.
