There’s almost nothing of value in this entire post or any of the responses. Rather than referring to “feminism” in a vague, undefined sense where all parties imagine a different concept, can anyone make any specific references? Say to prominent feminist writers/thinkers such as bell hooks, Judith Butler, or even Elizabeth Wurtzel, etc? What about any specific incidents that have sparked debate over the treatment of gender in society, such as the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision, the abduction of young girls by Boko Haram in Nigeria, etc? The views the above women express are ones I would consider classicly “feminist” but clearly their understanding of feminist theory is different than mine. Is anyone capable of being specific in this discussion?

This is no big deal. Certainly this is not behavior to emulate—either for the men or the woman. But my biggest concern would be about STDs. As far as the moral outrage, give it a rest. Everyone is guilty of something. Shaming someone to make yourself feel better about your misdeeds is unattractive.
What about the narcissistic, petty, vapid Generation X? They are the scum bags who cause the financial melt down and now blame Millennials for a weak recovery. If anyone has had to work with one (probably everyone, since they’re our bosses) you’ll know how highly emotional and self-absorbed they are. I’m sorry Kurt Cobain died, dude, but you didn’t know him personally.
I kind of wish they had a “I promise to make smart decisions and use protection when I have sex until I’m ready to have a baby” ball.
1 reason to go on a diet: you are a fat fuck.
First time I took the test it said I was 14% slower than average. Second time I took it it said I was 6% faster than average. Either way, I guess I’m a slow ass reader. Whatevs.
As a straight white boy, I agree that we are really the worst ever.
Apparently this is Leonardo DiCaprio’s first appearance on TV (outside of award shows) since 1992.
This whole “Bieber would be deported if he were latino” thing is utterly ridiculous. The difference between Beiber and undocumented youth—latino or otherwise—is that Bieber is in the USA on a valid, nonimmigrant temporary visa. A DUI does not make you deportable if you are here with legal status. “Undocumented” people are here without status (thats what “undocumented” means)—either they came to the USA without permission or they overstayed their temporary permission. I am an immigration lawyer. I represented a white Canadian in removal proceedings. She was being deported because she had overstayed her temporary visa. Skin color has nothing to do with it. Bieber is in the USA on an O visa, essentially a 3-year visa specifically for world famous celebrities. Yes, immigration law is inherently discriminatory. If you are rich and famous, you can buy your way into the USA. The laws are explicitly designed for that. If you are working class or poor, there are very few ways to get to live in the USA legally. Most people who get deported are deported because they do not have permission to be here. http://mediamatters.org/blog/2014/01/24/justin-biebers-case-drags-media-in-wrong-direct/197734
White privilege exists in the US. I’m sorry it doesn’t fit into your world view where we live in a pure meritocracy and everything a white person has in life is due solely to their hard work, but its true. A larger proportion of the African American population lives in poverty. Its the result of nearly 250 years of slavery. Slavery has only been abolished around 150 years, and African Americans have only had equal rights and full voting power for around 50 years. In other words, we are only a generation or so into a time period where African Americans actually have some semblance of equal opportunity (at least the absence of state sanctioned racial discrimination). So yeah, white privilege exists. To deny so is to intentionally deny reality.
So you were living in the USA before you got your green card?
Went to a liberal arts college. It was difficult. I did go to law school. It was also difficult. Now I’m a lawyer.
Green Bay Packers
Kansas City Chiefs
New England Patriots
New Orleans Saints
San Francisco 49ers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers These are NFL teams also named after groups of people in their aggressive or combating context. “A 2002 poll commissioned by Sports Illustrated found that 75% of those American Indians surveyed had no objection to the Redskins name. In 2004, a poll by the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania essentially confirmed the prior poll’s findings, concluding that 91% of the American Indians surveyed in the 48 states on the mainland USA found the name acceptable and setting out in detail the exact wording of the questions.”
I doubt we’ll make it another 1000 years, much less 100,000.
If I ever met her in person I would do my best to say mean and hurtful things to her to make her feel humiliated and ashamed of her “music career.”
I so hate Ashlee Simpson that to this day I still catch myself hoping she gets hurt. She made me so furious at pop culture when I was in my late teens/early twenties. Someone who can’t sing (as demonstrated by the rose bowl debacle, the lip syncing, my having functional ears), who isn’t charming or clever (just gander at a line of two of the lyrics of any of her songs), and who is offensively unattractive (as she well acknowledged, eventually cutting most of her nose off) gets HEAPS of attention. Who decided anyone pay attention to her? Her sister is talented, charming, attractive—I understand why she’s a star. But why was Ashlee ever the focus of attention, much less have her own TV show? I still think the world would be a better place if she were dead, or better yet, were never born. Not that I want her to suffer a painful or violent death, I just sincerely wish she never existed. I take pleasure in her embarrassments and failures. If I ever saw her in person I would do my best to say mean and hurtful things to her in hopes of making her feel humiliated and ashamed of her “music career.”
Isn’t a bit of a stretch of the term “life hack” to describe “knowing the terms of your student loans” a life hack?
Well I’m glad that someone finally had the courage to get to the bottom of this issue and expose the truth about lesbian porn.
Nothing about “liking stuff a lot” makes someone unlikeable. Having no social skills, being unable to even casually discuss things a lot of people care about (news, politics, sports, etc.), and going through life believing that the only thing people care about is you and your obscure interests is what makes people unlikeable.
does not compute
Of course the internet hates Mike Jeffries. The internet is full of fat losers.
This is a bit. Why are you posting videos of it?
Greeks: the training wheels of social skills. Some people enter college ready to engage with their peers appropriately, and some need to pay for “friends” to train them.
Yo, what’s up with his sister tho?
I thought this post was going to contain something related to Stone Cold Steve Austin. I am severely dissapointed.
She’s got spunk. A+ to her.
And actually he’s jewish.
Found about the only 20 young people in America that think that way.
Must be from a part of the hills that only gets Glenn Beck on the radio.
Here’s how Republicans can win over more people: end this nonsensical delusion that “government” is catagorically problematic. Expand broader access to government through more robust democracy. End the push for Voter IDs and increase use of referendums. More polling places. More elections. Most people trust their democratically elected leaders, who are beholden to the people, than they do private companies, who are beholden only to their owners and shareholders. A well functioning government makes life better and easier for people. There are things to be fixed but cutting government out is not always the best approach. Also, a lot of your party members are bigots. The GOP: not racist, but number one among racists.
I always thought Cory was a bit obsessive and a little scary.
1) The report you cite states that 0.0033 applications for admission to the United States are denied because of the public charge bar. That is because the vast majority of applicants for admission to the United States are able to demonstrate their ability to financially support themselves, or that their family will be able to support them. The link also refers to a “study” without a citation or link claiming 36% of immigrant based household receive a major public benefit. Without citation or link this claim is baseless. 2) The FACT of the matter is that the vast number of undocumented immigrants pay taxes and money withheld from paychecks for programs, such as social security, that as noncitizens they will not be able to benefit from.
http://www.politico.com/story/2013/01/taxes-key-to-immigration-debate-politics-87022.html This does not even cover the billions undocumented immigrants pay in state and local sales taxes every year. http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/Articles/2012/04/11/How-Illegals-Pay-Billions-in-Taxes-and-Reap-Rewards.aspx#page1 I want and honest debate, so we must get our facts straight. Undocumented immigrants are not taking advantage of social safety nets and are not depriving those lawfully present in America anything. There is no date to suggest that low skill, low income, undocumented immigrants are wards of the state in large numbers. To claim so without any evidence is dishonest and counter productive to honest debate on important issues.
Lil Wayne is one of the best rappers alive today. I hope he survives.
People are idiots. John McCain is right. You’re not going to round up 11 million people and “ship ‘em off to their home country,” even if Obama is trying his damndest (the “deporter in chief” has shipped off about 1.5 million as of July 2012 http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/president-obama-deporterchief). It’s only been about 20 years that we’ve even had a restrictive immigration policy with Mexico. In fact, Reagan’s administration implemented the last great amnesty that legalized over 3 million undocumented immigrants. The truth of the matter is that while unprotected boarders do pose a threat to national security, Mexican and other hispanic immigrants are, for the most part, a boon to this nation. Immigration laws are arbitrary and subject to change ever generation or so. No human being is “illegal,” and while sneaking into the country without inspection is a violation of civil federal code, it does not make you a criminal. If we had a logical guest-worker program and more immigratn visas available for people who want to live with their families, we wouldn’t have a fraction of the “illegal” immigration we do now.
These women are plus-sized.
It’s cute that conservatives treat raising the minimum wage like it is a rediculous idea. You know what is truly a rediculous idea? That you can work 40 hours a week, 52 weeks a year, and only make $15080 a year.
“I blame poor people.” That’s helpful, thanks.
