I've never understood this...
...but mainly only cuz I can only watch sports if I'm at the event.

When you're at home, would you rather spend time with your woman or watch sports on television?

When you're at home, have you ever been ignored by your man because of sports on television?

Single People:
Are you at home?

the evil gender bias rears its ugly head again
12:07 AM 11/30/08 · Earlier today God likes meRaven was going through my DVD collection with a slightly annoyed look on her face. She groaned, "They're all action films and scifi and horror. Why don't you have anything else?"

I grinned, "I'm a boy."

Truthfully, I've got some other stuff too, mostly comedy, but she was more or less right. I don't actually think it's a gender thing...but just out of curiosity I'd like you to answer the following 2 questions:
  • Are you male or female?

    • Primarily, what kinds of movies do you own?

Hey, does anybody want to make any icons for this community?

I was thinking of something incorporating Mars and Venus symbols and a question mark.

Things Men Need to know (advice from women)
  • The reason our bras don't always match our underwear is because WE actually CHANGE our underwear.

  • The next time you and your buddies joke about armed women in combat, take a poll to see which of you successfully aim at the toilet bowl.

  • If we're watching football with you, it's not bonding. We're watching because of the butts.

  • If the truth hurts, ask us those ego-sensitive questions on your payday.

  • Whenever possible, please try to say whatever you have to say after the movie.

  • Don't fret if you find out that the postman delivers more than once a day.

  • Please don't drive when you're not driving.

  • Lay off the beans several hours before bedtime.

  • Our bedtime headaches are inversely proportional to the number of baths that you take.

  • If you were really looking for an honest answer you wouldn't ask in bed.

  • The next time you joke about female drivers, research the number of accidents caused by rubbernecking at miniskirts.

  • If only women gossip, how do you and your buddies keep track of "who's easy?"

  • Stop telling us that most male strippers are gay: WE DON'T CARE!

  • Start parting and combing your hair to one side early in life: You'll never see the island coming.

  • Have a strong need for male bonding? Visit your proctologist.

  • Your contributions to your child should go above and beyond that chromosome you unselfishly sacrificed.

  • Eye contact is best established above our shoulder level.

I will never understand this
Why is it okay to ask a guy how old he is but it's considered taboo to ask the female of the species?

'To Catch a Predator' & The Daily Show?
I know that NBC is trying to do a good thing by informing teens and parents about poor decision making online. I don't mind that they call young men "sexual predators" when they make a date to have sex with under-age girls, but I don't think people know what happens next!

Did you know that many young men in the USA are getting as much as 10 years in prison for oral sex with their girlfriend who's less than 3 years difference in age or even closer?! You can read about one such case here. Our sexuality laws are Victorian and 'To Catch a Predator' may be exploiting these laws (they pretend to be teenage girls on the internet & meet to have consensual sex).

'To Catch a Predator' was talked about on The Daily Show tonight as if it was great, so maybe Jon Stewart isn't aware of the problem. If you think Jon Stewart should address this issue on the Daily Show, please reply to my post on the Daily Show message board. If it gets a number of posts, maybe someone will pay attention.

BTW, please spread the word. Are you on any other sexuality or some other forums where people might be interested in this? Thanks!

let the shirts come off!
11:16 PM 1/24/07 · Anatomically speaking there's not much of a significant difference between the neck and the waist of men and women. Naturally the obvious thing most people might leap to is the fact that women have breasts but sadly, given the state of overweight problems that exist in this world, male boobage is not that uncommon.

What I don't understand (on a fundamental level mind you) is why is it okay for men to go around topless in public but it's not okay for women?

Genderism - good or bad or problematic? How so?
"Genderism" isn't really a word according to Merriam Webster, but I thought I'd use it as being a milder form of "sexism". It looks like most of the members of this community are not really sexist (prejudice against the opposite sex - especially in the sense of deliberately discriminating against the opposite sex), but thinking of people in terms of gender is so ingrained in all of us. I wonder how bad this really is. Can we learn to stop thinking in terms of gender? The way a non-racist tries to stop thinking in terms of race? Why would we want to do that even if we could?

I first thought of this topic quite a while ago when I noticed that we apply gender to a person even before they're born. "Do you know if it's a boy or girl?" Why do we care? Then I noticed today that I looked at someone's user pic and assumed the person was female and then went to their profile page and learned the person is male (or at least has a very male name). Why did I care?! I really don't know.

for the record I don't actually believe this, though I can argue it, but I noticed both mine and a friend's comms haven't been getting much of any posts recently so this is for mutual promotion and spomething to do

xposted to 2_sex & LJers of the Golden StateThe·Argument·Clinic

Women are essentially inferior to men and this has been as true in the world now as it was in ancient times. Back then it was a bit more plain to see, as the modern variants have managed to disguise this flaw through subterfuge and that whole opposable thumb thing, but back then the facts were simply the facts.

Take for example the simple act of relieving ones' bladder.

The human male is quite capable of taking a leak while standing up but the female of the species has to squat to do so. Should a massive and ferociously hungry predator emerge on the scene, the female who is squatting while taking a leak is at an exteme disadvantage. So close to the ground she has not a chance to stand up and get away. The male of the species can simply start running in any given direction which is much more efficient and thus proving of his evolutionary superiority...

...though, the male would likely still be taking a leak en route to safety, making a mess of himself and anything in his path...

...but the point is he will survive!

this has been bugging me for awhile...
...why is it that most women's pants don't have back pockets?

admittedly a repost from my journal several weeks old but it's just been so dead in here of late that I thought I'd share
