Honestly, don’t take this like it’s some scientific survey. There’s a good chance they selected just the stupid answers or were dishonested about how the question was posed. Either way, I can’t even tell you how many times gay male friends of mine have told me I looked like a lesbian because I was wearing a plaid shirt or docs.
I gotta say, #5 is definitely not restricted to Chinese tourists. I used to work at a tourist office, and people from all over the world did that. I don’t really know why. I’m guessing as a souvenir. “Check out this sweet-ass tourism office and this person that worked there!” and sometimes it would be like, “Can I take your pict-*SNAP*”
Oh man. #12 is my life.
The comments about her skin are horrible, but as for the shoes, I really dislike the idea that just become something is designer and worth thousands of dollars, it must be nice. Those shoes ARE ugly but I think that might be the point.
I really like flower crowns. I’m not crazy about the ones with huge flowers but ones like #11 and #12 are very pretty.
well, at least she’s in an industry where she won’t get passed over for a job because she posted a photo of herself hitting the bong on facebook..
The section about all his beliefs just reminded me of this…
“She came from the shower wrapped in a towel and she sat on the bed and took his hand and looked down at him. I cannot do what you ask, she said. I love you. But I cannot. He saw very clearly how all his life led only to this moment and all after led nowhere at all. He felt something cold and soulless enter him like another being and he imagined that it smiled malignly and he had no reason to believe that it would ever leave.”
-Cormac McCarthy, from All the Pretty Horses. First time I read it it just murdered me. :(
literally my first thought
We don’t talk about it because of hypocrisy, and because it doesn’t fit in with the western rhetoric about terrorism. People want to keep believing white people good, brown people bad. Clearly these people weren’t even Muslims (and even then, I do not buy into the Islamophobic climate in the west) but since any Sikh man wearing a turban is game for hate crimes by any vigilante ignoramus, I shouldn’t be surprised. People will continue to use 9/11 and the Boston bombings as a reason to outlaw Islam, deport Muslim immigrants and blow up the Middle East, but events like this? Oh, he’s just crazy. Let’s move on. We don’t need to talk about prejudice.
I sincerely hope you’re joking. Men are not “controlled by women”. they are the bosses of themselves. Do you learn everything about relationships from King of Queens or something? Only 40% of senior management positions are held by women (and around 4% of Fortune 500 execs); 71% of women in the military have been raped or sexually assaulted; 3.5 times more women than men were murdered by their partners in 2005, and women are more likely to be made victims of domestic violence. Please tell me again how men have “no control” over their lives. Clearly when people think it’s funny to trivialize rape and the continued subjugation of women in professional capacities, women are not the boss of men.
Nothing wrong with looking up a date on FB… you gotta make sure they’re not some psycho who sepia tones all their webcam profile pictures of half their face.
Whatever - she sounds like any other old person complaining about how the music is too loud and the skirts are too short, etc etc, we just elevate her opinion because she’s skilled at convincing wealthy insecure people to part with their money for things they don’t need. And #3 is stupid. I like style, and I like fashion, but I don’t think that this CULTURAL activity that arose from extreme wealth and boredom is some measure of femininity or right to identify as a woman. Give me a break.
oh, sure. guns don’t kill people, hoodies kill people!
It concerns me that I know so many guys who are still rocking the look in #4…
