Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't they just have this exact same article (by the same author even) like two months ago?

The picture they used last time was more amusing too:

clowncar on fire: TopoGigo: Genevieve Marie: beta_plus: I'm sorry that basic biological truths hurt your feelings. I'm sure we can pass a law against it.

You might want to be a little more careful of asserting that stuff as "basic biological truths". It's pseudoscience at best, and total junk at its worst.

Most good scientists recognize that biological sex is a pretty poor indicator of behavior and of strengths and weaknesses.

Define "poor". Depending on your sex, you are statistically more likely to have certain physiological strengths and weaknesses. Depending on your sex, you are statistically more likely to have certain mental strengths and weaknesses. Depending on your sex, you are--according to research where it's impossible to control all the variables--probably more likely to display certain psychological tendencies.

It's sh*t for precision, but it's a pretty good statistical indicator. Similarly, actuarial tables won't tell me when I'll die, but they give a pretty good statistical picture of how many years a 6'1", 260lb, 35yo male with a 20-year smoking habit and a weekend binge drinking habit from Appalachia might live.

Quite frankly, I'm amazed you had enough time to finish your response.

thatboyoverthere: DemonEater: ClavellBCMI: Jeff_Reisberg: This unfortunate choice doesn't detract form the overall message. Traditional gender roles exist because that's the optimal allocation of resources in society -plus women aren't capable of making the complicated, continuous decisions necessary to be successful in the modern world.

Also, the link is wrong. this is not a picture from a homosexual "wedding".
1) homosexual cannot be married, as marriage is between a man and a woman.

2) Entering into a marriage agreement requires both entrants to be of sound mind. Those afflicted with the homosexual disorder are not of sound mind, and therefore are not able to enter into ANY legal arrangement.

Time to *plonk* a bigoted fundie troll.

I dunno, looks more like bad satire to me

Finally, someone who isn't a redneck said it. If I'm ever dumb enough to follow through on my threats of marriage, I'm showing up in flip-flops, my favorite worn-out jeans, and probably a Saints hat.

I ask of the world - who doesn't like wearing flops and an NFL hat? Am I really an asshole for it being my go-to outfit?


The only part of that making you an asshole is the Saints hat....

ZoeNekros: FTFA(Fox): Prior to the 1970s, people viewed gender roles as as equally valuable. Many would argue women had the better end of the deal!

Yes. The roles were viewed as equally valuable -- unfortunately, the people we not.
And yes, many would argue that. Many people are idiots.

I also liked this gem:
  FTFA(Fox): Those of us with children know better. We know little girls love their dolls and boys just want to kick that ball. This doesn't mean men can't take care of babies or women can't play sports. It just means each gender has its own energy that flows in a specific direction. For God's sake, let it flow.

It's actually a fair point, but the author is contradicting herself without realizing it. She is right: people should not care about gender trends. That's just data. People shouldn't actively try to fight against biology (when it's not harmful). But, she applies that insight selectively to people who actively go against gender trend simply because they are gender trends; she insults and slights the outliers of the trends. She essentially demands universal compliance. Most boys do x, so all boys should do x. Heaven forbid a boy grows up to like other boys; if he does, then he very much must not go with the flow. Fight the flow, boy; FIGHT IT!

/granted homosexuality wasn't specifically mentioned, but the point remains RE outliers of any gender trend.


Oh, I get it now. The reason I turned out to be gay was because my parents were fighting natural gender roles by giving me cars and trucks and blocks to play with and by teaching me to play sports (well, trying, anyway, I have zero eye-hand coordination so it didn't really work). If only they hadn't handed down all of my older brother's toys to me and had given me more than one Barbie doll to play with, I'd be straight and married with a half dozen kids by now. That's just what happens when you try to fight against nature.

beta_plus: Assuming that you are not gay (NTTAWWT), yeah, actually you do.

Happiness is a reward given to you by your genetics for doing things that would have furthered your survival and you genes survival for millions of years.  If you deny your hunter-gatherer roots, you are doomed to be unhappy.

Now, does that mean that a woman should be barefoot and pregnant cooking in the kitchen?  No.  But she and her husband had better do the basic things that keep each other happy on an instinctual level when possible.  If you're a guy, be the manly man that makes your wife happy.  Keep in mind that one of the main things that keeps her happy is you standing up to the challenges she will instinctually give you to test that you are manly.  This used to be called flirting.

Ladies, be feminine around the man you care about.  Make him feel welcomed and desired.  Obviously, test him a bit but have the good sense to do it at the right times.  Kind of like how he shouldn't demand sex from you at the wrong times.  Basically, be sweet and kind if he has proven to be worthy of it.  Don't be a biatch unless it is truly necessary.


Your handle is apt.
