They only hate it when UNATTRACTIVE men stare. Hot guys can look all they want. Makes the milk flow better than baby porn (wife coined this one, staring at a cute picture of the mother's baby helps a mom get more milk.)
You must adjust for income/ethnicity percentage for these statistics to make any sense.
I used an anecdote up there instead of a rationed argument like Dan's for a very simple reason. Most people pay far more attention to anecdotes and individual cases than they do to either logical arguments or statistics. Nothing against Dan's well-reasoned set of points, but I've found that the vast majority of people (not me, I understand and appreciate Dan's logical argument here!) get all cross-eyed and stop caring before they understand. Whereas humans in general are built to "get" stories. Tell us a good story and even the children are enthralled. I've found that a persuasive argument will include anecdotes for this exact reason. I was merely trying to bolster the tone of this thread by adding to the work already in progress.
For the women who say there needs to be tolerance for women who lie about rape, let's make this personal.
A woman in your husband's office develops a crush on him. Dismayed at his rejection of her advances, she accuses him of rape.
He is immediately suspended without pay, charged with a crime, and terminated after the charges move forward. Your family is plunged into a legal nightmare costing thousands of your rapidly diminishing dollars to defend your husband of this wrongful rape accusation. The defense attorney talks him into a plea bargain where he will serve two years and be on parole for two more.
And he must register as a sex offender.
And a felon.
And while you don't believe the charges against him, your suspicious mind can never let the idea go that he did SOMETHING to encourage her or perhaps even did have sex with her. So you mistrust the man you love for the rest of your life.
If you don't get divorced.
And you live in poverty because he can't get a decent job now, and must retrain for something where they don't care so much about felonies or sex registries.
Sound fair? How would you feel about that bitch who ruined your and your husband's lives? Should she be given a pass? After all, plenty of women are actually raped, and we shouldn't do anything that discourages them from coming forward...
Because that's how Freedom (TM) rolls, homie!
And the White House lawn into one of his golf courses.
The major difference between today's libertarians and today's liberals is simple: libertarians start with the public having all rights and take away freedoms selectively as necessary to secure order, give aid, and provide for the common defense.
Liberals begin by removing all rights and then gift certain ones back selectively based on who helps them retain power.
So then, better the Machiavellian monarch we know than one of the guys getting less press?
Trump is his own worst enemy. I can't believe so many conservatives are taken in with his rhetoric while conveniently forgetting his past.
The NRA couldn't jump in with the crowd saying it was a hoax, not and retain credibility. So instead they attacked the issue directly with a brilliant move to post guards on schools. We protect banks with armed guards so our (and ultimately the government's) money stays safe, but we don't guard our most precious children? It's an easy comparison without good explanation. Their entire fabricated argument was based on a false supposition, and the NRA gave the public a new narrative that was much stronger than the government imposed one. That's why I said the NRA saved the day. They
Sandy hook was a government hoax, a direct attempt to create such a public outcry over an atrocity that gun laws would be forever changed. The NRA foiled the plot, so it cost the perpetrators more than anyone. They had a huge elaborate plot and it went to nothing. There's plenty of evidence that this is the case. To deny this hoax is to stick your head in the sand in an effort to pretend the powers that be are still operating at a level of trust.
@yesynot have you heard of that tranny Kardashian ex-dad with her own show? The idea that gender has no basis in biology is being trumpeted to the public, not just college women. If effeminate American boys weren't already confused enough about their social role, they'll become even more so in time.
Having known two transgender guys==>girls I can say it didn't make them happier. In fact I think it was the opposite for sure.
There are one in a million exceptions to every rule but how about this? Stick with the gender you started with and try to own it. I'm no manly man in terms of my interests and hobbies, but I'm a man with my wife and kids and a man at work. That's all that matters.
Single feminists are raising the next generation of boys in America. A nation mourns.
It comes down to where each gender places the most importance.
Men choose the real physical world as most important. Affecting that effectively is their goal.
Women choose social and interpersonal relationships as most important. This is why they'll drive their cars into your rear bumper at stoplights because they HAD to respond to that text NOW with "LOL!"
Feminists have their focus all wrong if they want to correct gender imbalances. Girls are already being taught to make school a priority and go for higher education. As it is, they're outstripping their male counterparts in university attendance nearly 2:1! Women 25-40 have more higher education on average than men of that age. So why do they still make less?
Why does a social worker with a Masters make half what a pipe fitter with no college does?
It comes down to bargaining. Women are horrible at it, regularly accepting less and competing against each other in a race to the bottom of the salary chart.
That and women tend to choose jobs that are light work without much or any impact on the real world. The gender that is responsible for turning the gears of civilization is STILL the same gender that has always owned that role.
And these facts make the feminist message in that video worthless.
That was Digusting.
So is "Peanuts."
Yah San Diego is pretty sweet. The beaches are just ridiculous with fine women. Years ago I'd walk down mission beach and pass several keggers in three hundred yards. Then they passed a no alcohol on the beach law and everyone had to use hideout cups.
It's an Affirmative Action problem. Governments in particular have had to keep their minority quotas up, and going over was encourged. So they are/were willing to hire less qualified or even unqualified people simply because of their skin color. And those people created a work culture of which more productive people don't wish to be a part. The situation snowballed as they got all their friends hired on (as is common in most companies) and managers don't dare to fire them for fear of a protected class lawsuit.
So yah, AA strikes again. And that's why the ladies at the DMV are all hostile blacks and Hispanics who want to fuck up your paperwork as much as possible.
Not exactly, @Tatupu
The free market would never have brought such unqualified and risky loans without being able to pawn such loans off on government entities like FNMA and eliminate its investor risk. So government actually enabled free market excesses, as it has done with globalism and free trade, favored trade partner status with China's predatory industries, and NAFTA. Capitalism can only take the greed so far before market forces kick in to stabilize things. It takes government intervention to create the kind of clusterfuck responsible for the housing crash and following "Great Recession."
A while back I finally realized something clever men and all women have known forever: women of all ages and walks of life like to be seen as beautiful. Even the smart ones, the independent ones, the work-aholic ones and the accomplished ones still want their good looks acknowledged. A compliment paid in this manner will always sail through their defenses, even if they are trying to prevent its effect through sheer stubbornness. A compliment they perceive as truly genuine is like a treasure they'll put in a jewelry box to take out and remember from time to time. And they'll always remember who gave it to them, even if it's just a random stranger or homeless bum.
Homely girls aren't immune, but it will take more specificity to make them believe it. Compliment one or two features: their feet, shoes, hands, figure, ears, or hairstyle... There's usually something that's nice about their appearance, and often many things are in fine shape, even if the total package is somewhat underwhelming. Even a silent compliment will work! Look them over and smile big while maintaining eye contact. That's body language for "I like what I see and that's you." I got a just-because discount at Target last week when I did that to the woman behind the register who was a bit on the hefty side but otherwise took care with her appearance and was mildly attractive.
What you should watch out for are the raving lunatic women who have taken no or almost no care with their appearance. These women aren't sane, and should be avoided if possible, no matter if they are inherently pretty or ugly as a gunnysack full of rectums.
Here's the problem. Joe and George are in a rowboat they each have half ownership of. A leak springs in Joe's half. Joe doesn't know how to fix it. George does, but declines because it's not HIS half of the boat and not his problem! Joe should get off his lazy ass and fix his hole!
Now water that Joe's hole let into the boat is lapping at George's feet. Clearly Joe's water is inconveniencing him, and Joe should begin bailing! Joe replies that he's bailing as fast as he can but the water continues to rise.
George contemplates a lawsuit for Joe's destruction of his property.
And The boat sinks.
Considering the FACT that the labor had nothing to do with decisions of how to manage the casino, it's doubtful that they can be blamed for it tanking. However if the casino is in trouble they should start bailing, not suing.
The boat sinking takes them down either way.
You know, if they actually succeeded (at trying him in the Sanhedrin) they'd build him a fantastic case for being the second coming of Christ.
Xu Ting is a job creator, a businesswoman, an industrialist for The Heavenly Kingdom's sake! Patents are a socialist invention, probably created by an Obamabot, for sending honest hardworking people to jail! Why do her persecutors hate freedom?
And The Donald is just the turd to spring The Obama's trap.
The Donald is just trying to grab more publicity to feed its ever-expanding egos.
