Do Females Love Money, or Do we Mean they Just Love to Get it from Males?
We've all heard it said thousands of times that 'girls love money', and its even quite a complaint that has been made a lot but I've discovered something, I've discovered that we only say girls love money when they're trying to get it from males and never when we see them working really hard at a job.
Since that's the only time we say it, isn't it clear that what we really meant to say was 'girls love to get money from men too much', rather than 'girls love money too much?'
Because, surely we don't mean girls work harder for money than their male counterpart, or that they do more criminal things than men for money. We surely don't mean any of these and never say anything about girls loving money when we see them working, we only say that when they're trying to get it from men: when they're asking men for large sums, trying to marry rich men, trying to get large sums for child support, trying to get as good a portion as possible of the man's wealth during divorce, etc.
So, there goes, another example of when we mean one thing but say another.
