I think as women, we are judged very harshly, both by ourselves and each other. Now some jack ass has decided we need to be taken to task yet again. I say shame on them. Why are tax dollars allowed to be spent on this crap? So, be advised my personal messages are for them, not you.
A Glamour poll of nearly 1000 women, analysed by Billy Goldberg, M.D., and Mark Leyner, authors of "Let's Play Doctor," found which habits are unhealthy -- and which are filthy but fine.
Ever wear dirty clothes? A full 85% of women have -- just draw the line at underwear (which 52% of poll-takers have reworn).
Yeah, sometimes life gets in they way of good hygiene. If you don't like it, then you can kiss the ass of my dirty jeans.
Have you ever peed in the shower? Almost 75% of poll-takers have. Since toilet flushing accounts for almost 27% of indoor water use in a home, go for it.
So, finally we are doing something right! Madonna says that peeing on her feet in the shower every morning is what makes her feet stay so beautiful. Hmmm. Maybe I should start peeing on my ass. Would that even be possible?
The five-second rule? More than 40% of women eat food that's fallen on the floor. -- Researchers tossed food on grimy flooring and found that it was germy after just a few seconds.
We are a generation of wasteless, and waistless, people. Bite me. (After I'm all clean of course!)
Go barefoot at the gym? 32% of women admitted doing it -- Sorry, going barefoot is not a good thing to do at the gym. Even if you're not worried about slipping on wet feet, you should be wary of the stuff found in sweaty, steamy places that can cause athlete's foot and plantar warts.
Why are these questions being directed at us? Seriously. Shit happens.
Brush your teeth every night? 43% of poll-takers said they don't -- Skip brushing and you're giving the germs in your mouth time to multiply, especially since the production of bacteria-killing saliva decreases when you sleep.
I wonder if the polls asked how much the women who took the study did that day, and how they felt at the end of it when they probably literally FELL into bed from exhaustion. I rarely do not brush my teeth at night, just because I know I eat a lot of sugar, but if I'm so tired (or stinking drunk) that I can't find my way to the toothpaste, well then, so-be-it!
How often do you shower? Almost a third of women said they don't lather up every day -- It depends on how much you sweat. Unhealthy?
Personally, I do "lather up" daily, unless camping. But you know what? Who the fuck cares? Seriously, let's not judge each other.
Wash up after using the bathroom? 24% of women don't do it every time -- A little time at the sink will prevent those germs from finding their way into your mouth and causing you nasty gastrointestinal distress. Hand washing is the single most effective way to prevent the transmission of disease of almost any kind.
Just so you know, if I am in my own bathroom, and have not peed on my hands, I will not always make a trip to the sink afterwards. So sue me. In a public bathroom, whether I have peed on myself or not, my hands get washed.
So there you have it. What do you think?
