is a negative connotation associated with so-called “gold digging,” and in my
opinion, unnecessarily so.
Is there anything really wrong with financial security
being a pre-qualifier for your potential mate? Why is it
wrong for your mate to be able to afford the finer things in the life (whatever
the finer things in life may constitute for you)? I mean really, of all the wretched, repugnant, morally
unscrupulous things to be in this world, why is being a “gold digger” looked upon
as an ignoble characteristic?
takes an immense amount of talent to be skilled at this practice. Successful
gold diggers must be charming, stunning, savvy, good in bed, strategic, have
the ability to make a man feel good about himself by dangling on his arm and
assuaging his ego. And let’s be real, it’s not as easy as it looks, so why should
you not be compensated for your proficiencies?
problematic misnomer about gold diggers is that they have no ambition or are
lazy. People often claim they are not intelligent or ‘have their own.’ But this is not entirely true. There are many gay men who subscribe to
this way of being because they are of a certain economic status themselves and
consider it ass backwards to be in a relationship with a partner that brings
less to the table.
philosophy on this subject is this: if you’re going to dig it may as well be
for some treasure!
your thoughts? Is gold digging immoral or a valued skill set?
