6. I thought only women were judged by their appearance and held to an impossible standard . . .

 

I'm sure it's all political. You have to know people.

Also insert something about inner beauty and personality.

11. That poor guy is being objectified

 

literally, that picture of him is an object.

I don't see anything about his personality, hopes, dreams, etc.

All they're interested in are his physical appearance.

And don't give me that "he volunteered for the photo shoot" crap. Under the matriarch there is no free will, no consent, no choice. If he hadn't done the photo shoot then it would have gone to someone else. As would the money and fame and attention. So really, did he have a choice? Obviously not.

12. That's because your phallocentric mind is incapable of deducing that scopophilia...

only works in one direction. The objector can't be objectified any more than the oppressor can be oppressed.

Have these boys been all up in your nest over at HOF calling you girls names again? Objectifying you with the male gaze? Why are you here name calling?


Is is cuz they don't give a flying fickeldinnger about being an asshole? No one will alert on you? No word police? No umbrage, outrage, or bitching? Takes out half the fun.

I get where you're coming from, but on a cursory read I think you may have your "Majors" confused, here.



Happens to me all the time. Warren Stupidity gets blamed for my crap left and right.

Nikon's OK.

30. I do most of my posting these days from a smarter than me phone

I can't see Sig lines. I must click your name and see your profile to see avatars and such.. I looked at du on my laptop un-logged in, the other night and its 1000% better than peeking thru a key hole and trying to see around corners.

I pay so much a month for the full service phone plan that it shorts me for cable tv and internet. I signed the two year thingie. I need a bundle plan in the future. I only even got my first computer


just to access du, 7 years ago. My kids always had one.

Plus I'm a technophobe and still in the 90's with the linking and picture posting.
I'm hoping to bone up a little when I see my oldest son next week.

Hope you forgive my error in addressing you like the opposition. Oops.

I peeked in there too. They ARE excellent house keepers. So clean it squeaks. Perfectly white carpet and walls. No nail holes. No cat hair on the furnishings. Not even a glass in the sink.
Perfectly sterilized of all dissension. Pure.

Probably. Alcoholism and substance addiction are not respectful of anyone's station in life, their status or money. It is one equal opportunity mofo. He was on a brief reality wife swap show. Woah.
