I know I said I was gonna stay out of this, but this I have to address with the word "wat".
If anything, these days whenever something is achieved by a woman it's overblown in importance just because the person happens to have ovaries.
Let me give you an example: When Pixar replaced their first female director, who was meant to direct their new movie, there was an outrage, it was on all the blogs, in the news, people were calling Pixar sexist and yaddayadda - just because they decided that their first female director wasn't the best person for the job, something that film and animation companies do all the friggin time with their male directors - and employees in general, in all fields. Just because a woman is the first female to occupy a specific position should not mean that removing her from that position is always because she's a woman first, and because she's not the best person for the job second.
So, yeah. I'm out again.
See it happens both ways, lol. Either extreme applies. I don't know if people will ever be able to mediate between them.
I think many women really like their submissive positions. So many women can go their whole lives suspended in this cradle of innocent, childlike mentality of having to be disciplined and helpless. I don't support shoving the philosophy gender equality down everyone's throats, but I do support equal opportunity and equal pay. Whether people take advantage of it or not is up to them. We shouldn't force them to embrace it, because of the aforementioned pattern in female behavior. And yes I understand women are very much so obscured in society- anything achieved by a woman is sometimes deemed 'unimportant' or a co effort with a man. That I want to eradicate, but some women just simply don't see themselves as equal.
I'm a little awkward around authority, like in a work environment. **** if I could avoid working as some slave to Mcdonald's or a retail store I would. I think the fact I keep to myself and am generally introverted throws people off. I smile and I am kind, but I try to avoid chatting with others if it isn't necessary. EDIT: Like what other people are saying...college has done so much for my personality. I'm more relaxed, I get along better with people, etc. It's completely different from high school..you are surrounded by adults rather than immature kids. Teaches you how the real world is and all the different personalities that exist.
Seriously, that's horrible. I used to think Sweden was cool. This would not happen in America. An email was sent beforehand and simply was not taken seriously about the impending attack. In america we intercept attacks before they happen. We have the sense to raise threat levels and impose strict security on such things like flights, etc.
My mother gave me the rest of my allowance for the year so I could have more funds for Christmas gifts. I wasn't feeling well yesterday, so I stayed home from school. She deducted 15 dollars from my account as punishment. I said, "don't you think that is somewhat irrational considering the fact you're deducting from your OWN Christmas funds?"
Dove taste mighty good warped in bacon with a slice of jalapeno dipped in BarBQ sauce. MMMMMM, makes me want to go dove hunting again.
Hey look who is lucky, the electricity came back on in your mobile home!
I can kind of understand your political dispositions, considering the fact trailer trash like you typically resort to survivalist techniques to continue living. How do you like your squirrels cooked? Do you at least have proper tools to skin it first?
HIM come to mind, too bad cos I really like them a lot, but I feel if I were in a band I wouldn't want to cheapen myself down to such materials like pencils and things that get used up and thrown away quick.
You know, by creating every item under the sun with their logo/face on it. To an extent I can understand band attire (shirts, belts, jackets, etc) but I've seen some bands put their images on random things like pens and shotglasses and mugs..does this capitalist effort ever cross you as weird?
