I haven't had a lot of time to game, so my youngest son has been playing on my Overwatch account when I'm not on my computer.

I log in tonight and see I've jumped from level 15 to level 45 and am gold league o.O

Jesus he's good lol

When I play now people are going to be all "Wow, she sucks."

It is talking like feminism was not necessary, considering it says that gender equality wins are "the status quo, not an exception" and we all know the status quo is VERY sexist and sadly, feminist wins are still the exception.

Saw this linked on twitter and it's quite perfect:

I think the “women are mysterious” thing can also come from:

1) Women actually being quite clear, but not telling men what they want to hear. "She said she doesn’t want to talk to me? So many mixed messages and confusing signals!“

2) Women not having cheat codes. "I tried being nice, and she didn’t have sex with me. I tried being an asshole, and she didn’t have sex with me. Come on, there’s got to be some kind of solution to this puzzle!”

3) Women not being a hive mind. "First a woman told me that she likes guys with big muscles. Then the very next day a woman told me she thinks muscles aren’t attractive at all. Make up your mind, women!“

4) An individual woman doing something confusing, and instead of asking "why is she doing this now?” men ask “why do women always do this?”

Sonic Boom's TV show is a strange product where it's a normal kids show most of the time except for about 20 seconds where it shatters it's own universe to deliver some form of dadaism to the confusion of viewers everywhere.

First time it happened to me, I read articles about this phenomena but I have never experienced it in real life, it was kinda shocking to be honest, the dude was ok looking too, just short.

I guess I figured people who do things like that to be less "normal" looking.

Yes, just about any thread dealing with rape on here goes downhill pretty fast, along with threads dealing with micro-aggressions against just about every marginalized group.

How dare she out a rapist in private group and talk about the traumatic event she endured after going through a legal system that failed her for two years! How dare she I say! Clearly she is barbaric and uncivilized for doing so.

I cannot possible understand the mental gymnastics the people do to spout this nonsense.

eShakti is amazing! They are pretty awesome about sending out coupons when you're on their mailing list too. I've gotten more than one $20 off coupon from them.

In my experience, their dresses do run a bit big, but that sort of thing varies from person to person.

I've mostly been avoiding Modcloth because of the Walmart buyout and issues inaccurate information about sizing. Probably going to cave and buy this dress before fall starts, though!

Both rape threads were disgusting. I'm mad about one of those threads getting closed when they did; I'd written up a big post with a lot of links, and I am mad that some gross posts never got rebutted. Plenty of posters here that aren't even trying to hide their hatred for women.

I always want to love Modcloth but yeah, you just never know what you're going to get in terms of sizing.

A friend of mine used to work for them (writing descriptions!) and she had a WILD discount so I have a ton of stuff from those days. I would go on a spree and send her a list. We were about the same size so it never stood out that she was buying tons of stuff.

Thread's pretty unsurprising, though, huh? It's like the one about the women-only concert after all the sexual assaults at the other one. No solution is good enough for guys if they perceive any disadvantage to themselves even if it doesn't involve them at all! Who cares if the scales aren't even to begin with. :P

it's our love for coffee

it is affecting our sync ratio

and yep. pretty much as per expectations, sadly. if anything benefits only women, seems like it's actually hurtful to men????

but SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many things benefits only men for a very, very long time :( dont they realize this????

also, i found the gif ^ ___ ^
