"WE ARE BEAUTIFUL STRONG PEOPLE AND DEMAND EQUAL RIGHTS! FOR FAR TOO LONG YOU HAVE KEPT US DOWN, WHETHER IT BE OPEN SEXISM OR QUIET JUDGEMENT UNFAIRLY ROBBING US OF OPPORTUNITIES! WE DEMAND TO BE TREATED LIKE EQUALS, YOU ARCHAIC, PRIMITIVE DOGS!"
"Ah..... You know, you're absolutely right. It is completely unfair what we do to you. Bill, I want you to start writing me drafts of new gender equality laws immediately."
"You want me to make it so you're treated completely the same as men?"
"YOU HEARD US! WE DEMAND FULL RESPECT, YOU IGNORANT NEANDERTHAL!"
"Very well, when these laws I'm writing take effect, you'll be treated exactly like us. You'll even be able to be called for the draft"
".... WE ARE GORGEOUS, INDEPENDENT FLOWERS WITH OUR DIFFERENCES FROM MEN AND DESERVE TO BE TREATED AS SUCH, YOU PRIMORDIAL SLIME!"
Pretty much how it goes
Exactly..... That was totally intentional..... I'm really witty like that, you know.... shifty eyes
Why do you think it's called the Bill of Rights?
Nah, I agree.
I like this post. Expect I think the children should always go first.
The post isn't saying children shouldn't go first.
You mean voted up by everyone here who isn't a crazy feminist that disagrees with you solely because you're a man and/or you're right.
I agree with you but personally I think that it should stay how it is. I mean just pertaining to America I wouldn't want to be drafted or have to use unisex bathrooms.
What's wrong with unisex bathrooms? I know people seem to have a problem with the idea of them.
Anyway, I don't think there will ever be unisex bathrooms everywhere and no separated ones. Too many people would dislike that for it to happen, I think.
I personally think unisex bathrooms should exist, they just shouldn't be a replacement for the regular separated ones.
Anyway, sorry for the tangent. _^
No need for apologies, I love tangents. Not as much as cosines though
(Your+name+(optional)): Arc-tangent pwns all.
(Your+name+(optional)): Fine, but cosecant is all mine.
I just don't like the idea of bathrooms being unisex, and I'm sure a lot of guys wouldn't appreciate seeing tampons and wrappers everywhere.
Aside from the bathrooms I also just like having certain privileges as a woman such as the hostage example and not having to pay for stuff like Ant said.
I know a lot of people probably disagree with me but I just don't think we really need to change anything. Although I'd like to add that I'm not saying women should keep our privileges and get the advantages of equality like equal pay.
An ideal relationship should be financially balanced. In my mind, this is how it should work...
For the first couple dates, it should be fairly equal because you're just getting to know each other. If you go to dinner and a movie, the man could pay for the bill and the popcorn, while the woman pays for the tip and movie tickets.
For the next few dates, the man should probably pay for most or all of the date, so that he can show that he is a "chivalrous gentleman" and is committed. However, the woman should ALWAYS offer to pay and thank him. A man hates when women don't even make the gesture.
After that, it should alternate.
Ah chivalry, dead due to feminists
I agree with this completely, and it's pretty much how every relationship I've had has been. I want financial equality, and that doesn't mean just in wages. I work hard for my money and I know my boyfriend does too, so we should share that. I really don't ever expect a man to pay for everything for me, as Ant suggested women do.
However, I'm sure that if it was guys go first in the hostage situation there wouldn't be too much complaining. When it comes to a life or death situation, I think we'd all appreciate having something in our favour (whatever it may be).
We would all appreciate having something in our favour, but none of us would appreciate having something that could potentially kill us.
Yeah, "in your favour" as in favour of you living. And obviously nobody wants to be in that situation, but should the situation occur, you probably wouldn't object to having a little push in the surviving it department.
Of course you like having certain privleges, just like we dislike giving them to you. The only logical solution is equality. Your lack of a penis shouldn't entitle you to certain advantages.
You're talking like men are the ones forced to give women certain privilages. It's just the same flipped; your penis shouldn't entitile you to certain advantages either, like higher pay. It shoulda said 'Of course you like having certain privilages, just like we do.'
And I know you said the only logical solution is equality. I just disliked how you worded the comment.
Well as of right now, women don't get paid the same as men so men should (usually, but not every single time) pay for the date. But in the case that both the man and woman are paid the same, then neither one should have to pay every time, you're right.
I think the only job women get paid more than men is in Porn.
Women do get payed the same as men. If women were allowed to pay women less why wouldn't they only hire women? No, it's illegal to pay less based on gender.
Learn how things are actually working right now, please. Women do, in fact, get paid about seventy cents while a man gets paid a dollar for the same job.
Would you mind giving me the source for this apparent fact?
No source eh? That's surprising.
I never understood how people could be gay when I was little.
Now I see that it's pretty simple. Women are fucking insane.
Unfortunately, I think women feel the same way about men.
So women are gay for men? how is that different from being straight for men?
(Chauncy Pickles): i hope you were kidding...
I hope your attracted to me!
Correction: I hope "your" attracted to "me".
Never thought that a procrastinator could inb4.
how do all these frekin people get these POTD's
Cheezburger network... ಠ_ಠ
(I am Anonymous.): I'm sorry to tell you this, but it seems that your eyes have turned into blocks with letters.
you put Anthony and not le Anthony, doesn't count
you seem like an angry person. No need to be rude. Don't like it? Vote it down, tell me why you don't like it, don't just say it sucks. Honestly, people just don't have manners anymore at all. By the way, i was half asleep, three o'clock in the morning, 18 hour busride, random thought. Didn't think anything would come of it.
It makes sense that women are let off first with the children for a couple reasons: 1.) For most of human history it seems, women were thought to be weaker. 2.) Women can be pregnant. So it would make sense that they can get out of risky situations. 3.) Women tend to be the care takers of children. Not that fathers do nothing! But, you tend to see more female babysitters, nannies, and more mothers out alone with the children.
So when you weigh all of the effects of tradition, it makes sense that this happens.
Is it really fair? Probably not. Men and women are equal, but for many years, men had to be the protectors which included protecting their wives and children.
Equality is a two way street. I never really understand the man-hating feminists. I am a feminist, but I don't think that that involves making men inferior to push ourselves up. Men and women were created equal and should be treated as such. I don't need special treatment; I need equal treatment.
My feelings exactly.
There are some jobs that are better suited to men and some that are better suited to women. We enjoy different tv shows and use different shampoo. We pee in different kinds of toilets. They even have to give women whose hearts are failing a different kind of temporary blood pump then men receive because of differences in size. We are just like cats and dogs, who eat different foods and shit in different places, but are both equally good pets, just for different reasons.
I've been feeling mildly metaphoric all day, with a touch of poetic. It's good to finally get that out of my system.
Men and women
We shit in different places
and have differences in our faces.
We don't shave the same locations
and sing with different vocalizations.
We watch very different shows
and (usually) only one of us paints our toes.
Like the cat and the dog,
or the guinea pig and the flying frog,
and everyone in the pokedex log,
We are different, and yet the same.
And then there's the flying guinea pig
who, although he is not very big
can write long poems all day long
and make them sound just like a song
we wish we were as good as him
but alas, our fate looks very grim
for we are just not as astute
and undoubtedly not as cute
we can only follow the words of the wise
and follow all that they advise
for some jobs are meant for women and men
and some for guinea pigs with a flair for the pen
(Your+name+(optional)): Wow, I think yours was better!
i was thinking about those annoying femminist bitches when I made this. I agree with you though, but some men when equality of sexes are brought up takes it WAY too literally, like this post.
No, women want to be treated "equal" to men as in not inferior, but superior if possible. They say this is what they want: women = men. But really they want: women >= men, or even women > men.
So it is OK for women to be greater than men, but not for men to be greater than women?
Fuck feminazis and their double standards
Feminazi is a bad term. It degrades Grammar Nazis.
I think the hostage taker should just shoot everyone and there wouldn't be a debate at all.
This reminds me of that episode of The Office when a fire started, and Michael just sprints out of there.
Then he talked about how he didn't believe women and children should be let out first, because it's a law for everyone to be treated equal in an office.
Were gonna be wanting to vote next.
We'll let you stay as hostages, but we will never let you vote.
I thought of Titanic :)
I see what you did thar...
Sorry, just got to keep proving those grammar Nazi fuckers wrong.
Yeah, I don't think anythings grammatically wrong with that statement.
There should be a comma after "You're right"?
Comma after "children".
For some reason this reminded me of Monty Python.
"This is your captain speaking. Do not rush for the life boats. Women, children, red indians, spacemen, and a sort of idealized version of the complete renaissance man first!"
I love how nobody remembers the elderly. It's like, "Screw the old people, they're going to die soon anyway"
Eh... I honestly can't decide what I think of in terms of whether women should go at the same time as or before men, but I do know that pregnant women should absolutely go first; although that's technically children...
Anthony, I get it Polarthebear's account has been deactivated, so he no longer needs to blow you to get a post home-paged or POTD. But, just because your feeling a bit stressed out due to a lack of a sexual thrill, doesn't mean that you must be so willing to let anyone give you a blow-job for POTD. Let them at least have a descent post for them to earn it.
Well that's just rude. Sheesh. It was 3 o'clock in the morning on an 18 hour bus ride, just a random thought. Didn't think anything would come off it.
...If you don't know BreakfastFan either, I recommend you leave hastily.
We could let her stay on as an apprentice if she can tell us what Zubat is eating....
@1302598 (FlyingGuineaPig): I meant 'Is that him?'
...Of course I know him
AND BreakfastFan (when he was an active member)
Although I did find BreakfastFan to be a bit pretentious.
Ah. Well, that's alright then. Sorry to bother you.
I miss breakfastfan, he was a good lad. He always had something clever to say.
Did polarthebear leave permanently leave too?
whatever happened to rebelscum. l loved calling him rebels-cum :(
Umm... What is Zubat eating?
He was like Realdizzy and her french toast. Always eating chips.
Oh... btw if anyone really wants to know, it wasn't polarthebear that posted that, it was just me trying to make a joke at like 12 o'clock last night (or morning).
@1304342 (:)): read this: (#1302240), I made this comment, I have no clue what your talking about
Lol, as if they're the most important people ever.
Who said they were? Just, a lot of people like them and they're famous. That'sall.
Ya, that rule is up for debate.
It's funny because in your picture it looks like a bunch of people are debating something.
they're all watching porn
Basically, many feminists only want the benefits of "equality" (ability to vote, have property, etc) , while they do their best to avoid its downsides (the draft, MOS's in the combat arms in said draft, etc)
I'd say the children and the elderly should go first. It's more fair, and no one can complain about equal rights. And it just plain makes more sense.
I would assume the Elderly count as adults?
But in that aspect, they could allow one of the kid's parents go with them. They don't have to make it gender specific. What if the kid doesn't have a mother? You'd be faced with the same problem.
Hence the second part of my post.
Though I do know grandparents that manage fairly well in that situation.
That will only happen if there are so many children there's no room for anyone else, which will cause the same problem whether or not women go before men.
You're either trying to be ironic or you got lost on your way to Facebook
Trying to be like one of those "YouTube thumbs up" posts and ironic at the same time.
Ah. Nice recipe, but I think the dish needs a bit more sarcasm.
My apologies. I will try better next time.
i loved it...do i get to find out if you're a ninja or what?
But I only gave 1 shit.
I love it how people find it easier to associate the feminist movement with the worst of them. Assholes.
Similarly to how black rights have grown and are now only pondered upon for positive discrimination purposes.
Seriously. Sure, who care about the millenia of women being considered sub-human in most areas, I HAD TO PAY FOR A STEAK GODDAMNIT. Sexual harassment and rape aren't common nowadays, discrimination does not exist at all and women are the slimy bastards who make the poor men suffer.
Wow, calm down. It was just a random three o'clock in the morning thought after watching the in-bus movie with a hi-jacked plane and Chuck Norris. Didn't mean anything by it. And where I'm from, blacks have the most rights out of all the ethnic groups and women get picked over men because it helps the business get work. You get points for women, blacks or disabled working at the company.
I've also never seen a woman begging to be included in the draft.
Exactly, you want the benefits, you get the downfalls too
But... men are paid more.
OH!, that's probably so they can afford to pay for expensive dinner dates without starving their pet cat.
Sorry, It's the Red Bull speaking
Yeah, sorry about that.
I had an idea and I speed-read through the comments to post it.
After I actually read your comment at the top, I wanted to delete mine, and I would have, but it wouldn't be fair to the people that replied to my comment.
Again, it is the Red Bull. My bad, sorry.
I am a strong believer in Negative Action. Unlike Affirmative Action which gives women and minorities more opportunities than white males to make up for centuries of oppression, Negative Action demands that all rights and privelages be stripped from women and minorities so that white men should prevail in this country as they rightfully should.
