    I am not George Clooney by any stretch of the imagination (especially handsome). Luckily for me, people don't typically take that as the most salient fact about me when they are deciding whether I deserve to be taken seriously when I say sentences.

    Also feminism is stupid no need for it anymore maybe in the '50s.

    There's also a post written by the woman about it: http://www.xojane.com/issues/my-pic...haming-anti-feminist-meme?utm_medium=facebook

    I mean, of course it sucks when someone takes your picture and spreads it around in a mean way. But this isn't some men's rights movement assault on women...its somebody on the internet making a fat joke. Maybe that person hates women, or maybe they support feminist causes and aren't too aloof to poke fun of their own stereotypes. Its just starwars kid--but this time its with a feminist sign so it has to be a big deal.

    I highly doubt that. I'm sure the creator perfectly understood the actual point the campaign (its really not that hard to grasp). But he saw an opportunity to make a cheap fat joke, so he made it.

    GS Elevator Gossip on twitter: "feminists are just ugly underachievers who need an excuse for their failures."

    I'm happy to learn that I am actually something called a "cisgendered"

    I sort of knew a dude who accidentally started a mens rights group in college (as in we knew each other's names and had a class or two together).

    He wrote a satire column in the school paper poking fun of the Women In Business student group about a new group he would call Men In Power

    Of course there was some outcry...then there was some national news pickup (that missed that it was a joke) so the guy just decided to run with it and take the TV interviews and national newspaper articles. I think he got it turned into a registered student organization with funding and everything (renamed to "Men Initiating Progress") although I doubt it still exists today.

    Edit: according to facebook, he just passed the bar. Good for him.

    Now that you closed-minded, retrograde bigots are done making jokes, I have a serious question:

    If I fill a cistern with, say, rocks (or some other non-liquid material that needs storage), does that make it a transtern?

    Okay, here is a reason why not to have dumb friends on FB:

    http://money.cnn.com/2013/08/26/technology/social/facebook-credit-score/index.html?hpt=hp_t2

    So you thought seeing the pathetic lives of your former friends was harmless voyeurism and schadenfreude for you? Not so, Sonny Jim, it's lowering your credit score!

    My cousin posted a pic of his face after a badminton injury. He took a shuttlecock to the eye socket...the injury doesn't look bad at all, there's barely any bruising so he's just being a baby.

    So I responded - don't be such a baby, this isn't the first time you've had a cock in your eye. He's loaded for revenge now so I'm not going to be posting anything on FB for awhile :lol:

    Stumbling down a facebook rabbit hole of rural high school dropouts who party hard and have lots of sex it's hard not to regret some of my life choices. Their news feeds look so much more fun than the stupid shit my 'friends' post.

    back to my female bodybuilder "friend":

    "And then there is this beast. You may not know it, but you remind me everyday to stay lighthearted and enjoy things as they are. Your enthusiasm for life is beautiful. When I don't feel like working hard I think of all the hard work you put in to be where you are today. Thank YOU for making me better, everyday."
