RE: Do women still need to wear makeup?

I think you've just opened up your imagination for our scrutiny. giggle

RE: Do women still need to wear makeup?

Then why didn't you ask women, rather than providing a bizarre list of your own opinions? laugh

RE: Do women still need to wear makeup?

So we're supposed to vote for one of your opinions? laugh

What make-up product(s) are you referring to anyway?

RE: Pom Pom

There's a site rule where if you are suspended from the forums, or banned from the site, creating a new profile to get round the suspension/ban earns you a permanent ban from the site.

If you sit it out and wait until the suspension is lifted, or until you are able to reactivate your banned profile, you can continue as before.

I suspect pom pom has a life time ban from some years ago.

I also suspect someone must be reporting her everytime she reappears. It's not like she makes an effort to hide her identity, so I guess it's all part of the game.

RE: All the kneeling...just an extension of many years of whining about oppression and slavery........

@Looking2share...

You're right, you don't need to explain yourself to anyone, but it would be very interesting if you did.

I'm interested in the reality that you live in with respect to people being shot by police.

If there are 10 black men and 100 white men: 8 black men are shot by police, as are 10 white men.

One reality is that 10 white men have been killed, but only 8 black men. More white men have been killed by the police.

Another reality is that 80% of the black men have been killed from our example population, but only 10% of the white population. Therefore more black men have perished.

Which is your reality?

What is the reality for black people in the US?

My understanding is that proportionally, black people are more likely to be arrested, more likely to be convicted, more likely to be imprisoned, more likely to receive harsher penalties, including the death sentence. It's not a great leap of logic to suspect that black people, assuming the proportional version of reality, are more likely to be shot dead by police and not just because they are very naughty little so and so's.

Perhaps America needs to explain itself, just as Britain and many other countries do.

RE: Are times changing

I don't think of people in those terms and I find it a bit odd that other people might.

I could challenge that kind of judgement if I saw it, but I haven't heard anyone referring to a man as a stud, or woman as a slut for as long as I can remember.

Probably not since I was in school back in the 80's.

Except maybe by Chesney on here. giggle

RE: s*xual harassment lately.

Considerably less than I used to get. I've mostly put that down to being half a century old and less of a target than I used to be. laugh

It could also be that sexuality harassment is less socially acceptable than it used to be, but either way, it's definitely liberating to be able to go about my business without having to confront it all the time.

The last time I felt sexuality harassed was about three years ago at work. I hadn't been working there for long, I didn't know many people and I didn't know how the place was structured. I think I was still on probation as well.

I felt utterly humiliated by this man's very loud and public comments about breasts. I scuttled away in horror, determined never to be in a room alone with him.

Now I've been there a while, any recurrence and I'd make an official complaint. I doubt that'll happen though - I've made it clear we're not friends.

I would like to point out that many things have been said to me by other men at work which could come under the heading of sexuality harassment, if it weren't for the fact that these things were harmless banter.

RE: Alternative to misandry thread

Perhaps the physical reattachment of one's assets would be quicker and less painful than the emotional work required to become a less damaged human being.

It's difficult to bear that in mind when someone's behaviour is so obnoxious, hostile and rejecting.

There aren't exactly a lot of gaps where one might slip a kind word in. Perhaps some people aren't ready for that.

It's rather painful to watch.

RE: Alternative to misandry thread

The trouble with this thread is that it doesn't quote the original post of the other.

It means the focus is on the dynamic of the other thread, rather than people having their say about the subject matter.

And perhaps many of us are more curious about what is going on with the thread author, than the subjects he raises.

For example, it just popped into my head that I didn't know who is behind recent replies to me on that thread. I'm wondering if the posters who tend to dislike women, or outspoken, challenging women, are more likely to have a faceless profile. dunno

RE: Today is "be nice to the opposite sex" day

Was that a deliberate spelling error? laugh

I was rather curt on the seat up or down thread.

My milk of human kindness just seems to shrivel up faster than a lawn in a drought if I end up cleaning piss off toilets, floors, walls and bathroom radiators.

Especially when it gets to that sticky, acrid, hard to shift stage on bumpy, awkward to clean radiators.

So, perhaps courtesy and kindness aren't really too far apart. dunno

RE: These threads are becoming very misandrist

From the Queen of Boobalicious herself, I'll take that as high praise indeed, thankyou Mimi. hug

RE: These threads are becoming very misandrist

Well, that's an interesting question, epirb.

It appears to imply I might have a problem with my feminity.

I don't. I'm as comfortable with my so called feminine traits as I am with my so called masculine traits.

I don't feel a need to demand that other people have particular gender role traits and maybe that has something to with security in my own.

I delight in watching my friends and colleagues swoop between gender roles and traits because its all about who they are, their life experiences and their choices.

I'm inclined to think that anyone who demands that everyone else has to fit into some reasonably arbitrary set of social conventions, possibly contrary to their own instincts, or inclinations, is the one with the problem. The issue is perhaps with their own security and comfort with themselves.

RE: These threads are becoming very misandrist

Why are men meant to be masculine?

Why are women meant to be feminine?

Who gets to decide that?

Feminism: the radical concept that women are people, too.

RE: Percentage wise - How much happiness have u had in ur life ?

A little bit, very much, not at all - those are qualifications, not quantifications, aren't they?

Surely, a quantification of happiness would be to give a percentage, or a place on a numbered scale.

Although, I'm not sure of the point of a subjective quantification, unless you plan to collate the results and offer up some statistical results, like the average happiness of a CS forumite. laugh

RE: All the kneeling...just an extension of many years of whining about oppression and slavery........

I'd sooner see the world community evolve into something a bit more grown up.

Most people are lovely and there's way too much tearing to shreds as it is.

So much madness, so many people helpless in being swept along with the tide.

It's a simple gesture, this kneeling business, but it does stand against the drag.

RE: Her Body

Just don't braid your goaty, Lookin'.

All the local lurchers and terriers think I'm a lure course as I'm walking down the street with my pigtails tantalising them. giggle

RE: All the kneeling...just an extension of many years of whining about oppression and slavery........

All you whinging about kneeling - what's that all about?

Americans are having to walk on eggshells?

If exploiting illegal immigrants, endemic racism and oppression, invasion, wars, Guantanamo Bay and a generally appalling human rights record is America treading on eggshells, I don't want to see what losing your inhibitions would be like.

RE: HIDDEN & BANNED FROM THE Why are some women so imature and sensitive? THREAD

Nobody will be able to answer that for you, Gal.

All of us will interpret from our own value framework without the benefit of the knowledge of the other person's life experience.

I could suggest that we perhaps project what we expect. I expect others to get really excited and enthused by picking things apart and examining everything to f*ck and back, but that tendency is embedded in my life experiences. It's a need within me which splats all over the forums.

If we project what we expect, what might that say about someone who repeatedly acts in a way which might collectively come under the heading of 'rejection'? What need within them is splatting all over the forums?

RE: Her Body

My hair.

People stop and talk to me because of hair.

People recognise me because of my hair.

It's almost like an open invitation to random strangers to open up a conversation, especially now it's grown quite a bit longer than on my outdated profile pics.

Some of those conversations are a blessing, filled with all sorts of silliness and roaring laughter. laugh

Can you post to Jac's thread...?

Bitchin' and name calling on my thread...?

How disappointing. moping

RE: Do you leave the toilet seat up or down

You're right guys, because you can't see it, it doesn't exist.

You are, after all, the gods of pissing from great heights and therefore control all you survey. laugh

By the way, next time you have surgery, check the surgeon's hands and if they look clean, tell him, or her, not to bother scrubbing up. hmmm

RE: Do you leave the toilet seat up or down

She can't anyway. She doesn't have a gwyrt-y-keyboard.

RE: Is being good looking & gift or a curse?

Handsome is as handsome does.

RE: Do you leave the toilet seat up or down

That's the bottom line, Debs.

A hole in one, if I might say so. tip hat
