A hush falls over the general assembly as Stacy approaches the podium to deliver what will no doubt be a stirring and memorable address.

"I wish they taught shopping in school!"



I'm very VERY disappointed in all of you Farkers.

Really, nobody actually looked at the ads? It's not that they portrayed girls as loving shopping, it's that they made it look like girls don't want/need serious education. Or that they're incapable.

sheep snorter: Make fun of boys is ok, but once you go after girls, ITS AN OUTRAGE



CSB time:

I was the only guy working in a realtor's office once where all the women had that exact attitude.

One day, a pickup truck ran off the road in front of the office. Of course since "only men drive trucks", they start making jokes about how all men are bad drivers, the most common being some variation of 'he was distracted by his penis'. I said "I think that might have been a woman", and the boss fires back "one more word and you're fired".

A few minutes later the driver comes walking into the office asking to use the phone. The boss casually asks "was the driver hurt". The woman answers "I'm not hurt, I was distracted and ran into the ditch".

At that exact moment, all the realtors stared looked like they wanted to kill me. I just looked at the boss, made a 'zip my lips' motion, and started to get back to work.

I was fired on the spot.

Egoy3k: Why is a position in favor of positive male role models tied to the destruction of feminism in your mind?


Because Anthony Weiner is the closest thing to a positive male role model that feminism is capable of supporting.

/which shows how it's progressed since the days of Bill Clinton being the feminist male role model

Fano: FTA:Patricia Parsons, communications professor at Mount Saint Vincent University, said she thought the campaign was tasteless, a bit sexist and humiliating to women.

"Unfortunately there probably are young women who probably find this thing kind of funny. It's one of the things though that I suspect their parents don't find very funny. And I did note yesterday on Twitter that a father chimed in and said, 'So this is what they think of our daughters,'" she said.

Well.This is what humorless coonts that need to justify their useless jobs do to get attention. I'm sure Patricia is very smart.


MSVU - A very womyn empowered university.  When i went there in the late nineties the gender split was 85/15 female/male.  They styled themselves on being the empowerment university for women.  Men were for the most quietly tolerated, (they only started admitting them in 1967 and only allowed on campus housing for them in the early 80's I think).  I think her comments on this may be clouded by her personal views.

/Excellent Public Relations Degree Program though

Yup.  That is the rule book we work from thanks to being complete dicks to women for several thousand years.  It sucks, but hey, at least we could usually get laid without threat of stoning or societal shunning for the last couple hundred decades.


It's a good thing that boys don't have such fragile self images and can weather unhealthy gender stereotyping much better than girls can. Oh wait no. Sorry, I got that one wrong. They do, and they can't. Thanks to attitudes like yours we are farking up multiple generations of young men.

Even better when you come back with a sexual harassment suit and wrongful termination.  If that story is true, you could have owned that place by the end of it.

I think some people will not rest until we're all just completely genderless and take no joy in the differences that make us who we are.
