  1. Masculinity

    Sure. We all are to some degree or another. It isn't inherently a male trait to be more shallow.
  2. Masculinity

    not all men Thank the gods.
  3. Masculinity

    Yeah, yeah had me that there does seem to be a supportable correlation between men and women and risk aversion, in general. But the jumping onto a train track to save someone is a shite example. Jumping to someone's aid without thought is a very different behavior than running a risk assessment on a situation such as jumping off a cliff for fun or driving recklessly.

  5. U.S. Politics 2016: From Russia With Love

    I don't have anything against conservatives, per se. However, I do have a lot of feelings against Trump supporters because even if they don't think they're racist, sexist, etc. they are still supporting an outright vile human being - an admitted sexual predator who has made outright racist statements and supports extremely racist policies.
  6. Feminism - Post-apocalypse version

    Why bother delving any further into TERFs and misandry in this thread, though? It's been clearly and thoroughly stated by many that these fringe-feminists are just that - fringe - and not widely accepted as the face of feminism. I'm sensing the need to set up an easy punching bag to further derail a discussion with easily manufactured criticism. Let's not.

    Emotional labor is fucking exhausting.
  9. Careerchat II

    As far as a defamation suit, I was thinking more against those people spreading the rumors. There seems to be a case for lost employment opportunities.
  10. Careerchat II

    Yup. Could she lawyer up and sue for defamation since these rumors are clearly costing her employment opportunities? Also, maybe she's so fucking awesome at her job people feel threatened and that's on them not her. Sounds more like you lost out on some amazing talent.
  11. US Election: Saint Bernard the obstinant

    Agree. As much as I more closely identify with Bernie's politics (if not necessarily the implementation of them), it would be improper for him to debate Trump prior to being selected as the Dem nominee. I can also understand the tremendous pressure from the momentum behind him to stay in the race to the very end. However, I would prefer it if he and his strategists were working on/executing a pivot plan to start funneling that momentum into influencing Congressional elections - especially in areas that could really make a difference in repairing the mess that is Congress.

    That will be lovely.
  13. Feeling like the worst parent ever

    Real quip and this may have already been addressed: Being able to focus on a specific interest wouldn't rule out ADHD. In fact, it's a common "symptom" that those with ADD/ADHD have brilliant focus but it's got to be something that the person is extremely interested in pursuing.
  14. US Election: To NY and Beyond

    The other Republican candidates virtually ignored the northeast. My state (RI) is one of the most politically corrupt and we are still clawing our way out of the 2008 mess. We have no industry besides tourism and our governor's disdain for our state is appalling. We are pissed at the establishment so naturally our state went with the two candidates that best represent anti-establishment positions.

    With all due respect, kal, that's your opinion. I appreciate that he is sticking around to keep the dialogue open for the disenfranchised left.
