Of course females rule the world.

The vast majority of the time...

Who courts who?

Who pays for the other's lifestyle?

Who divorces who (70% of the time)?

Who takes half of everything?

Who receives alimony/palimony (nearly 100% of the time)?

Who receives full child custody if requested (nearly 100% of the time)?

Who thinks they're never at fault?

Who are fickle as all hell all the time?



And you have the NERVE to ask the obvious question?! Are you fucking kidding me?!

Miltie: I know you'll be thinking "lighten up!" but it's exactly that type of stereotype sexist thinking that induces that joke - and makes people genuinely believe women are worse at parking their car.

So true. I always thought it was stupid when people would say it's unmanly to cry. My little brother is going to prison for making Meth. He brought it on himself, but I still shed a tear for him sometimes. He's still my little brother.

I never cry. Well, only during daft stuff like 'artificial intelligence'.
And earier, when my 11 year old (who has been teaching herself piano for a couple of days) suddenly started playing proper chords and melody, and a whole tune from a disney movie - no lessons.

Good stuff...in the past I could shed a tear when appropriate, now I have no control over it and never know what little thing will set it off, hopefully it will subside with time...

So me and the kid are walking through town an hour or so ago, and she spots this piano and just gets on it. I'm gobsmacked really! Like I say she just decided to start playing it a couple of days or so ago.

She's coming along well for someone self-taught playing only for a few days. How many hours does she put into practicing?

That's a lot, really. Fifteen to thirty minutes per day is recommended for novices, a music school student will be working for 4 hours per day.

Nov.1972. A letter to the woman's magazine MS. written by Terry Southern (Screenwriter-DR. Strangelove among others). Never published by MS. Magazine) :

During your own innermost and private quest for the truth, you might consider the following suggestion: namely, that it is naive in the extreme for women to expect to be regarded as equals by men (despite all the lip service to the contrary) so long as they persist in a sub human ( i.e., animal-like) behavior during sexual intercourse. I'm referring, as you doubtless know, to the outlandish panting, gasping, moaning, sobbing, writhing, scratching, biting, screaming fits, and the seemingly invariable 'oh my god, oh my god' all so predictably integral to the pre-, post-, and orgasmic stages of intercourse. Surely you're aware that such extremes of expression cannot fail to produce an ultimate and profound sense of alienation in the partner and /or witness to same. I would further suggest to you that until women are able to excercise a modicum of self control and restraint, and to maintain a semblance of human dignity during orgasm, they shall never gain from men the sort of respect they desire (again, the abundance of lip service to the contrary notwithstanding). Can you seriously imagine a man placing his confidence, his vote, or indeed any measure of real responsibility, in the hands of someone he has just seen engaged in nail digging, teeth grinding, eyes rolling, toes curling, half-fainting demonstration more suited to the kennel, or lair, than to the bedroom. This is an act of love and, by definition, should be one of heartfelt tenderness and genuine concern. There is a considerable difference, I might add, between a show of passion and the rutting of a wildcat.

Is that real?

From The Art Of Being Loved (the 1945 French self-help booklet for women):
Quote:
But you, Madam, to whom Heaven has given a “rich nature”, avoid shameless requirements and scorching screams that force !!!!!!
He won't forgive you this plundering.
When they are provided, that's when they refuse that men appreciate the modesty of women.

Yes. Terry Southern, who wrote Dr Strangelove, Candy, Magic Christian really wrote that letter to MS magazine. MS did not publish it but it got published later. It's hilarious, isn't it? He was being funny not serious!
