  1. There's nothing wrong with wanting to be supportive and protective. Just don't hold them back is all.
  2. True equality comes from people accepting one another for who they are and also fairly dealing with one another -- you don't necessarily have to like them but you shouldn't oppress others(even if its just mild bullying) because they're not to your line of thinking. That isn't right. One of the most obvious examples of this is gay marriage. Why can't gays get married? Why can't gay couples have children? Because conservative policy dictates that they don't have the same rights as everyone else even though in reality, it shouldn't interfere with their sets of beliefs or desires for life and happiness, so why stop them? Obviously in extremes cases(murderers, rapists, etc) there can be no middle-ground because one deprives another of an essential freedom.
  3. It's a general term used to apply against a male dominated society.
  4. ...Still not getting what you're saying. ):
  5. Repeat that, couldn't understand it.
  6. Conservative values also teach hatred against gays and anyone not counted among their own. Not saying core, meaningful tenants aren't without merit by any means but they tend to be taken to extremes or obscured in silly ideology. I like men and women -- should I get with a woman? I would want her strong, independent, someone that adores me cooking for her and questions my motives and thought processing. She will have just as much say as me in our relationship if not more. Because I wouldn't take the "role of the man" and "put her in her place" I'd be judged poorly. Should I get with another man? I'd probably be strung up and hung in a conservative society without a proper sense of counter-balance, let's be perfectly honest here. You're the same people that will make abortions illegal but then turn around and condemn gay couples from raising adopted children when inherently the amount of children up for adoption would go up and we already have problems with that as is. Even though most evidence out there(and common sense for that matter) points to gay couples making just as good if not BETTER parents than their hetero counterparts. I can attest to this from personal experience. Conservatism unfortunately, while withholding some wisdom, is a patriarchal political concept in of itself. It is largely outdated and often contradicts its own thought processes. We're not going back to that, I can almost guarantee it. Especially if what people desire is social freedom to pursue who they really are as an individual.
  7. The idea is more to the effect that we as males have utterly failed and not just in politics but in raising our children and setting standards for our communities. We've long held sway over what goes and doesn't as norms/standards. As a result there is still a strong sense of pointless hatred towards gays, more effeminate men, and more masculine women as they go against the grind, they go against the patriarchal expectation set forth. We need to spend less time thumping our chests and more time smelling the roses while supporting the people we love -- and no, bringing home "the bread" doesn't quite cut it. That's part of the equation, not all of it, not even close. This is a new age and we need to evolve to meet it.
  8. I hate to say this but all I'm hearing is a bunch of capitalist propaganda that blatantly ignores a myriad of factors. Like for instance... A minimalist lifestyle is being able to buy a junker car. Being able to have a junker apartment with some kind of roof over your head. Having some kind of healthcare coverage so you don't croak the first goddamn time you come down with something. To have enough money to buy some food and some clothes when necessary. Basically things of necessity that many jobs out there can't provide. So what do people end up doing? Working 2-3 jobs instead of 1, wasting away slaving for assholes who don't deserve that kind of toil for what they're paying out. Guess what? They ain't got time to go to school. They ain't got time do much besides bust their ass and survive. Hell school a lot of the time is a good way just to get in a huge amount of debt if you don't know what you're doing. So unless you've got assistance or made ALL the right moves earlier on in life and had the support structure of a functioning family unit, you're probably screwed and stuck in a self-perpetuating cycle that is only getting worse with each passing year because let's face it... RICH MOTHER FUCKERS DON'T WANT YOU TO SUCCEED AND THEY SURE AS HELL DON'T WANT TO PAY YOU. So let's stop bullshitting ourselves and stop pretending that things aren't so bad. That the greedy somehow aren't inherently greedy and here to screw you. Then we might be able to have a real discussion.
  9. Corporations and businesses do make jobs, the people who start them do take risks, etc... all true. However, they DIDN'T do it alone. From every pawn to every knight at their disposal, they have all helped to build that company into what it is. Corporate entities tend to forget this and they owe it to their people to ensure they're taken care of. Instead many do the opposite of this, they take and take even as they profit while making no efforts to streamline business in more efficient ways or cut costs towards the upper-echelon who get far more than what they need or often times deserve. The problem today is that it's become too one-sided. People should be more adequately paid, no one should ever not be able to live a minimalist lifestyle when working for multi-billion dollar entities, period. Doesn't matter if its the service industry or Walmart.
  10. I'm a firm believer of defeating the 'Patriarchy' and bringing about true equality. Women must be empowered to do this. They must be encouraged to take up leaderships roles, roles in creativity(especially concerning mass entertainment), and men in turn should be emboldened to help them on their journey through life as mentors and partners -- not as their overlords. Until then young boys and men are going to struggle with what it means to be a 'man' and how best to co-exist in the modern world. It is unfortunate when a man finds that his sexual prowess is somehow the measure of his life or that his aims are to essentially marry a woman so that he can have what amounts to a servant at his side at all times. No wonder why sexual assault and frustration among men are so high! I LOVE female protagonists. I'm a huge fan of Disney princesses and the likes. I've even gotten into collecting the films and such. I even enjoy writing for them. I personally want to live in a world where men like me can adore the cute and pretty, to find passion in things beyond "MAN STUFF", rather than be judged and thought lesser of. Why not? Isn't that what we should be striving for always as a society? To break down barriers, find common ground, and create a true sense of equality among our people? We won't have such openness and consideration for one another until, again, the 'Patriarchy' is brought to its knees. Otherwise we'll always be forced to act and conduct ourselves how they desire it so. I truly believe it's time for us men to step down and help hoist up our sisters and daughters to greater heights. We've had our time and we're failing the boys of tomorrow by perpetuating this nonsensical view of manhood. So I want to know what you think. Would the United States of America benefit from the rise of feminism and for men to take on supporting roles?
  11. Maybe I should have been more specific. It's not that I think insurance companies per say are racketeers but that the healthcare industry ABUSES the very existence of insurance. Basically, they get to write a blank check to the consumer because their insurance is a large pool of money in which to pull from therefore increasing their value(artificially) significantly. If they were to actually charge based upon the general income of the average consumer it would be a much, much smaller amount. Again, kind of the norm from what I've seen. I'd really like to know what kind of insurance she has.
  12. Pretty common. Again, she must have the holy grail of insurance companies.
  13. ...Interest has been rising steadily every year what the hell are you talking about? And it's not about whether they can do anything concerning that debt. It's a matter of whether they'll get sick of our abuse and dump us entirely. Arrogance is not appealing. Then she must have had a bitch version of it and caught it early. A lot of people aren't lucky like that and don't discover they have cancer until it is highly progressive. You're talking about potentially years of combating it. I've had to pay 175 dollars out of my pocket just for a quick check-up at the local doctor. Like literally ten minutes of their time and forty minutes of my own waiting. That's WITH insurance. If she has insurance that covers long term cancer combat then banned word me silly, she's got the holy grail of insurance and you need to tell me where I can get it.
  14. It also has made our economy one massive bubble waiting to implode in on itself. All it would take is China and Russia giving our currency's validity the middle-finger and it's over... FOR THE ENTIRE MODERN WORLD. Trust me, with the way we keep disregarding any kind of monetary control eventually they're going to have no choice and will be(probably already are) setting up provisions to protect themselves for that time. There has to be a value there. If you keep printing for the sake of printing, that value diminishes. It's common sense. Got to love it when you're so entrenched in everyone's ass that if you were to go under, they all would go with you. Not the most comforting thought that the world's economy is in the hands of the some of the most ignorant people in said world. What we have is an economy of bloat buddy. It's artificial like Pamela Anderson's breasts. If we hadn't emerged out of WWII as basically the only real standing power, we'd be breasts up! Our status and integration world-wide post WWII is the only thing saving us right now. We're a ripened tick waiting to be burnt loose. Just gotta wait for that needle tip to get hot enough...
  15. If you get diagnosed with cancer and have no emergency fund you're banned worded, insurance or no. You're still going to be out thousands. There is no insurance that exists that covers you utterly and the more problematic your ailment, usually the less coverage. Insurance does a nice job of jacking up prices on the most mundane things to make it seem like you're actually getting fair coverage but when the [excrement] gets real, you're still bleeding out of your wallet. Even if you spent your entire lifetime paying in and never taking back up until then. Without insurance, again, those prices would be a mere fraction if that of what they currently are. If you had saved that money in a savings account that you would've instead paid to your insurance provider, you could have likely sidestepped a financial disaster and forked it over in CASH. It wouldn't be stupid cheap but it'd ultimately be more cost effective than what we have now. Again, what we have now is akin to a scam. Those values there are bloat, artificial, not real. You're paying for fluff basically rather than what you REALLY need at a REAL value.
