The Kin"sheena" Scale

4.21.2011
I'm kind of obsessed with the Kinsey scale. (Have been since Human Sexuality 101--University of Kansas)     

Simply fascinating...I catch myself eavesdropping overhearing folks talking about where they fall on that glorious scale that allows one to say, "That chick is so hot, but I'm not really feeling the kissy kissy with her so I'm not really gonna go with gay, but I'm definitely not a zippy zero either.


                      


The idea of scales and where people fall on a spectrum popped into my head yesterday while having a lovely conversation with Jersey. Basically in a nutshell, we were discussing the idea of jealousy and when it's appropriate to speak up and when it's not so much necessary. Women and men are always gonna flirt with taken folks...and sometimes we laugh and watch as our partners squirm over the attention, while other times some weird intuition sets in and you think to yourself,  "Nope...something ain't copacetic with this person."

I told him if I were being fake I'd say some bull shat about not caring because I trust my guy and I'm confident in myself...Yeah, that little band-aid of confidence doesn't always make the annoying bugs buzz off. I have THREE instances in my past where I trusted my guys SO much, but they took that as indifference and decided to cheat the worst kind of cheats to see if they could get a rise out of me. Seriously...one guy actually told me it was my fault he cheated because I acted like I didn't care...so he wanted to see if I would. Smart guy...I picked some winners.

I digress, though. Basically if my little gut starts shouting out warning signs...or farting out warning signs (I have a sensitive tummy...) then I'm going to speak up and say I'm aware of the situation, it makes me uncomfortable, yadda yadda. Jersey kind of gave me that boy blank face that we all know and love so I drew him a picture to help him along.

Pretty sure it worked. Alfred and Wardell would be so proud of me.






There's always a balance...
