27 Rest of my life
I love watching humans use tools in creative ways. Actually, I love watching any species use tools.
Twenty down, rest of my life to go.
Sounds so much like us. Except with DANCE!! Thanks for the giggle.
See if this tickles your fancy, First Dog on the Moon from the Gruaniad's Australian edition http://goo.gl/AoS40f "The ABC Interpretive Dance Bandicoot is here to explain to a grateful nation what the hell happened in the Senate this week!"
Eighteen down, rest of my life to go.
Seventeen down, rest of my life to go.
Uri Geller explained!!!!!
Every time I see a bunny, I think of you. And Baxter. Hoping you both are well. And that happens a lot, because I have a FB buddette who constantly posts photos and vids of bunnies.
Thirteen down. Got my first solid confirmation of gaining strength. I went to the Starlight Theater last night. http://blogs.seattletimes.com/popcornandprejudice/2014/03/11/movie-glamour-in-port-townsend/ On the third floor of an old Victorian building. Which means the stairs between floors are MUCH longer and steeper than you find in modern buildings. Usually when I go, by the time I get to the third floor, my heart is pounding and I am gulping for air (I didn't go really slow up the stairs.) Last night? Some heart pounding. A little out of breath. I don't think anyone could have heard it though, and I could talk without sounding like I was dying. Yippee for me!
Too high a standard you are setting, meboyo. Not all feminists are interested in making it easy on the fellas, or care about them being equal to them. They are clawing their way up. Or so they think. We could take a poll of avowed feminists and ask them. Those who are interested in the issues of feminism and see if they say she is fake or not. She thinks she is a warrior, doing battle on behalf of women. (I haven't watched what went on before, but I can imagine, based on what I saw here.) And like ALL warriors, there is bloodshed and collateral damage and swinging swords that aren't always perfectly controlled. Personally, I don't like warriors. They are helmeted and hence somewhat blinded by their armor. Not good for rational discourse.
I think the moniker "fake feminist" was apt. She's not working towards equality of the sexes, but instead is using the shield of 'feminism' to male bash and complain. To me, that makes her a 'fake feminist'. Granted, I'm just one newt in a forest of salamanders, so I'm often in the minority at best in my line of thinking, if not an island.
Thanks for changing the title. Much better. Except I don't think she is a "fake feminist." What about her is fake? I don't agree with her statement at "all men harass women." My best buddy, a heterosexual man, is such a non-harasser and so gentle he earned the title "Honorary Woman" years ago. It is just logically wrong, and makes her sound silly. But she surely isn't a fake feminist. A silly person, but not a fake feminist.
^ Most accurate assessment of the video yet, in my opinion.
Am I the feminist you had a bad exchange with? I am happy to meet you in the lounge and talk about it. I think others will vouch for me that I am not like this angry woman. I promise you a respectful conversation. (Not a lecture from me, a conversation between the two of us.) I think she was arrested because she probably interacted with the cops in a way that they didn't like. They also probably wanted to get her away from that situation for her own good. Very disturbing video that shows the lack of common courtesy in discourse when there is a difference of opinion. Meet me in the lounge? PM me?
