That's all you really needed, subby.
 
2013-07-24 05:42:21 PM
well, she's a strong, independent woman. and you know how they hate that.
 
2013-07-24 05:53:45 PM
I don't think its about her being a feminist who thinks women should enjoy sex. I think it is the fact that Obama nominated her is the only reason why the GOP are up in arms about it.

I really want Obama to come out in favor of not punching yourself in the dick.

Well, it makes sense. Enjoyment of sex could lead to dancing.

/or something...

It should be a felony for two consenting adults to go down on each other according to the next governor of...wherever. Because republicans don't get oral if it's not in a rest stop.

Let's slow down here, I thought sex was a thing that women "gave" to men as like a reward for fixing the car or something.

You mean women actually want sex like men do?  They have sexual urges??  Impossible!!

Republicans think, if God wanted women to enjoy sex, He would have given them penises.

Then if women had penises, it wouldn't be gay sex, right?

FOAD, Republicans. EABOD before you go. HAND.

Plenty of Asian women have penis's.
Its hilarious seeing the sting videos when some guy starts to get off seeing only the top of the body, that has the nice boobies, and then the final scene is her his Asian wang and mr. jackoff almost puking at the disgust

I suspect that guy is a robot. Only a robot could think like that. And he didn't preclude rest stops in that bill. So that means no oral sex.....nada......zip.........robot written all over it.

FTA: On the eve of her confirmation hearing, the influential Family Research Council warned of Pillard's "militant feminism" and proclaimed that "America can't afford to give a lifetime appointment to a radical ideologue!"

Gawd almighty -- how many conservative radical ideologue have these guys force upon us?

It is like hearing Ms. Hilly proclaim "there are some serious racists in this town!"
 
2013-07-24 07:13:09 PM
If Obama were to say that he enjoys tomato soup then Republicans would blast him for communist sympathies.  Nothing he does will be deemed acceptable.
 
2013-07-24 07:16:24 PM
Well, good thing the Senate doesn't need the Republicans to go along with this to confirm.  You have the big red button Mr. Reid, use it.

FTFA

Girls and women disproportionately are taught to be in denial about their own sexual urges, and yet rely inappropriately on their sex appeal. The denial occurs both ways: Women are expected to deny the presence of their sexual desire (to guard chastity), and to deny its absence (to be sexually responsive to men). In a world in which such denial is the norm, women will lack the kind of agency and responsibility needed to meet their own desires for pleasure, well-being, support, and meaning in their lives.

Oh noez, advocating for female responsibility? Pointing out the crazy dichotomy in our culture about how women are supposed to be sexy but chaste? How terribly monstrous.

They also don't like her because she advocates for birth control coverage by insurance companies. Gah. You idiot conservatives who hate welfare, don't you think having less unwanted babies is a good thing? that it will ultimately cost society LESS to have unwanted babies, than paying for birth control pills? Long-term thinking, how does it work?

On a side note, I wonder how the term "feminazi" gained traction. How are feminists, even the rare man-hating kind, anything like Nazi guards in a concentration camp? Do some men really think they are just like Jews in WWII era Germany? Are jack-booted women smashing man-owned storefronts, putting men in ghettos and burying them in mass graves?

oops in my outraged ranting I miswrote that. I meant to imply that unwanted babies cost society more in the long run than having insurance pay for birth control pills.

Women, one abstinence-only curriculum teaches, need "financial support," whereas men need "domestic support" and "admiration. Another maintains that "[w]omen gauge their happiness and judge their success on their relationships. Men's happiness and success hinge on their accomplishments.

Conservatives can be so enlightening! Here i thought i was pretty much a guy, when really i'm a conservative transgender MtF lesbian! Why else would the female classification completely match my beliefs, while the male paradigm sound so antithetical?

It really tends to be a catchall term.  If you add nazi to anything it is automatically bad.  Eco nazi, soup nazi, fashion nazi, nazi nazi.  The goal is not to have a comparison that is accurate but to slander group X by attaching nazi to them.

You know, while I want a guy I love, I think that a guy so needy as to not be able to vacuum, wash dishes and occasionally cook dinner, who also wants probably unwarranted admiration is just a sad specimen of humanity. I have a job, same as you. I hate doing the dishes, and most cleaning. We both work 40 hours a week. Grow the fark up and help in the house. Don't treat it like some major accomplishment, either. It's just shiat that needs to be done. No rewards, just get it done.

Sex ISN'T supposed to be enjoyed. This is a concept invented by liberals so that Agenda 51 can gay marry everyone.

Probably when she was a bit younger.

Which is ideal, really. Their party is quickly becoming the party of old, angry, white men. And as much as they might enjoy the memorable circle jerks and back slapping, they're essentially dooming their party to extinction with this stuff.

I considered that, but most of their followers are too dumb (or willfully ignorant) to recognize it without one or more big hints.

I agree fully.  I bet there are lots of men & women who could get on board with this.  There's a lot of un-learning of what was previously drilled into them that people need to do still, though.  For men, it's along the lines of what you just said.  For women (in my experience, anyway) it's a tendency toward hypercleaning that's left over from the "my self-worth is tied up in how well I keep the house" they inherited from their mothers, aunts, etc.  I have a feeling that at least a little bit of the "he doesn't help around the house" is really more "he refuses to get on my OCD cleaning schedule!"

/Male, and I maintain a strict 6-month cleaning cycle whether the place needs it or not.

I've lived with a lot of people, it's more than just man vs. woman, but comes down to this:

How tolerant are you of a messy/dirty house? How long will you go with the garbage overflowing? How many dishes will you let pile in the sink before you do something about it? How dusty will you let the house get? How many old shirts will you pull from the back of the dresser before you do laundry? How long can you go eating out of the microwave or fast food before you have to cook?

Generally, the tolerance for a mess men have is much, much higher than women. So, women end up doing all the chores because they can't stand the mess. It's not Just that men expect women to do the chores, but that for many chores, men don't care* if they get done until it's unavoidable.

*I've found this depends on the chore. I can't stand an overflowing trashcan so I am militant about taking out the trash/recycling and making sure the can is at the curb on trash day, and I enjoy doing the laundry if there's a washer/dryer IN THE HOUSE (as opposed to at a laundromat). However, I hate dishes to the point I use disposable plates/cups/utensils and I could not give a fark about tall grass. My father loves mowing the lawn, but can't be arsed to pick up dirty plates, cups and empty coke cans littering his office.
