fluffy2097: malle-herbert: Oh... we understand... we just don't give a rats ass...we give a rats ass, we're just waiting for them to stop talking about completely irrelevant crap and get to the point.We cannot watch football and listen to how you chose the blue socks over the red socks because of thread count.
bunner: So far, afaict, the gist of what passes for feminism these days is basically, "we still get a free ride, but you have to drive to where WE want to go and you pay for the gas." And that's sad, because feminism, as on the original label was long overdue and necessary.
kiwimoogle84: Well thank you- I DID double major in English and creative writing. How I ended up in medical administration I'll never know
Egalitarian: Women are individuals just like men are. Real human beings, not symbols and projections from mens' minds.If you try to take your experiences from one woman and apply them to another as if they were exactly the same, of course you're going to be confused.If you treat women as projections of your own mind and have any inkling of reality, you're gonna experience a lot of cognitive dissonance.
Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Men are used to waking up as the same person every day. Their internal balances don't vary nearly as much as women's. The idea that a woman reserves the right to change her mind is because women are different people on different days, especially young women who aren't as used to dealing with their hormonal changes. Men need to be flexible in dealing with women, don't expect consistency, especially emotionally.
MusicMakeMyHeadPound: birdbrain777Weaver, I concur, she wants you, and if you wait too long you will miss out.I disagree. I think she's a cocktease and enjoys playing with you.Although there's merit in the idea that she wants to be farkbuddies. Clear that up with her, Weaver. And if that's what she wants and if you're up for that kind of relationship then you should invite her over to spend the night. Otherwise ask her to that that shiat to hotornot.com or whatever the equivalent is these days.Being a farkbuddy is like renting a really awesome apartment. A young person's game, a fun experience, but it hurts when it's time to move on (which comes oh so fast).

Last Man on Earth: Jeep2011: You see women talk in code that men cannot understand due to the misogynist aspect of human society. When a woman does speak freely she is called a biatch or worse. When a woman is sexually free she is called a slut or worse. Therefore, men will never understand women until a woman can be on equal terms as men in society.Perhaps that's so, but it quickly becomes cyclical. Women can't really be on equal terms until they stop being afraid to speak their minds. When someone has to be coaxed and encouraged to even voice an opinion, of course they won't be treated as equals of those who offer them freely. People in the real world have neither the time nor the inclination for that kind of thing. Similarly, the label of "biatch" for doing so is going to stick around until that behavior becomes perceived as normal. I've heard women complain that there's not a male equivalent to "biatch" because the behavior is expected of men. The solution, it seems to me, is to MAKE it the expected behavior for women, by acting straightforward speaking your mind without apology. Make damn sure people know that's EXACTLY what they can expect from you.I've heard this complaint many times, but it always comes with the idea that men still have to be the impetus for change. That just won't happen. Take a lesson from the civil rights movement: Equality is a right, but it's not a gift. You need to step up and claim it. The people in charge won't change on their own, you need to step up and tell them "This is how it's going to be from now on. You got that, prick?"
albatros183: Maybe I am feeding troll, but your problem is what?
bunner: Jeep2011: You see women talk in code that men cannot understand due to the misogynist aspect of human society. When a woman does speak freely she is called a biatch or worse.Is it me, or has "free" become code for "copping to the lowest level of self control with not only impunity, but a cheer leading section"?

MusicMakeMyHeadPound: A major flaw with this study is that all of the test subjects were male. How well would women do reading men?
Bedstead Polisher: Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: You never once sent him a message that said "Hey missed you yesterday. What happened?" You would have either gotten blown off again (which is an answer in its own way) or you could be consoling him in bed over the tragic loss of his pet guinea pig, who tragically died in a skydiving accident on Sunday. Next time you run into him, just ask. It'll put your mind at ease and prevent you from idly reliving this experience every so often for the rest of your life as women are wont to do.Good point. We work together (different departments) so we see each other often but rarely converse without people present. I do need to just get over it and ask what's up. At least to answer the question, so I will get over it. He did text me to wish me a happy birthday two weeks after he blew me off and I had to fight the "Oh, so you DO still have my number" response. I need to stop being attracted to guys who give me mixed signals.
Weaver95: albatros183: Weaver95: albatros183: Weaver95: Sometimes I think women do it to us on purpose. My one friend knows that Wednesday night is game night. She knows the approx time I start the show (tabletop rpg). So last week she starts asking me about her decision to get her nipples pierced. That was it...my concentration tanked for the rest of the night. Then she sends me a "good morning" picture of the results. Took me half the day to focus on work after that.So I think women understand men very well and just f*ck with us on purpose.should have just had her come over, two brains are better than one and if X is greater than two must be better, what could go wrong?She kept texting that she was really very sensitive and um...perky. Like I said, there went my concentration for about 2 days.I think she knew what she was doing dammit.then give her sex or clip her from your life. choices are simple, play games IRL or don'tNothing is ever that simple.

bunner: Men objectify women.Women try and internalize men.Kids and dogs know better.Anybody want a sammich?
s2s2s2: WhippingBoy: Yeah right. Like that will ever happen.I just get tired of the "Oh yeah, we we use you to get power n shiat!" line. If it is true, then it means women only have themselves to blame for why they can't ever seem to get enough of it.
kwame: This thread is hilariously demonstrating why there are so many single men on Fark.
Omnivorous: Venus. Mars. Orbits never intersect.
gaslight: Hermione_Granger: The article pretty much makes the point that men simply haven't evolved.I concur.Who's got the money and power again?
dopekitty74: Abox: It's evolution. If women were coherent we'd spend too much time talking to them and less time banging them.So this is why my husband would rather talk to me than fark me? Fascinating..../never thought I'd be considered too coherent..
KawaiiNot: But yet most men grew up with mothers and many have sisters, aunts, grandmas. I'm not buying something about this "study".
ComicBookGuy: I remember with my ex, when we were arguing, I'd retreat into cold reason. This, somehow, would make her angrier.
chaosangel: Or, they will just be really catty to you, but avoid any chance to discuss any issues & deal with the problem.

I can't count the times I've thought to myself "It's been 15 minutes of non-stop talking, and I *still* have no idea what she wants from me or what the problem is".She: "I've got something really important to tell you"Me: "OK"She: "Do you remember me telling you about my cousin Gerald who lived in the city? Well it seems that one day he met this girl who had white shoes. The same type of white shoes that Jessica ordered from Eddie Bauer. Well, it seems that Eddie Bauer used to have a yearly sale on their flannel shirts; you know the ones, I use to use them for the cat bed when they got old. Anyway, Jessica's car got broken into the other day and she called me up crying. I told her to call the police, but you know how she has issue with the police due to the fact that her ex was a cop. She told me about this great place for breakfast..."15 minutes passShe: "... and so I told her to tell that biatch supervisor to shut the hell up and..."Me: "What the hell is so important???"She: "Oh. The toilet's overflowing. I think you need to fix it"
