Haha the train wreck gif again.Wow. This this left the topic quickly.
So go ahead and attack what I've said - that's your opinion and certainly your right - and I'm perfectly OK with that.
I agree. And I said that.I have as much right to point it out as you have to have it.
Are you saying there are notable differences between men and women - in general? How can we make a sweeping general statement like that? I don't detect any sarcasm or veiled insult in that statement. It may be a compliment of sorts, meaning, for example, that you have assertive take charge qualities and can be depended on to be a leader. Is that sexist? Maybe. I think we can all agree though, that is a more common trait in men, than women. Or maybe not. Joan of Arc comes to mind. And I recently saw the movie Harriet, which was a story of a truly heroic and determined woman. Sexist? Who cares - if I can't compliment qualities in a woman, and you prefer me to be silent - well, sorry - you lose. Reread the first quote of this post - ah yes - you ARE entitled to your opinion, yada, yada, yada - so we can stop the bashing now.I have consistently been told by colleagues of both sexes, employers, friends and family that I "don't think like a woman" and that the reason I don't experience a lot of the gender bias many women complain of is that I have a "male brain," whatever the hell that means.
Well I mean, it's a very well known fact that men tend to miss the point of things, and are very skilled at it too. /s
Well, I think we can all agree on that, as well. As a man, I don't take that as an insult in any way.
The point of the article is to be emotionally intelligent and not lose temper and say stupid stuff.
Looks like you are calling for a pissing contest. Sorry, not gonna humor you. I only got facts
characterized by or showing prejudice, stereotyping, or discrimination, typically against women, on the basis of sex.
You are showing prejudice and generalization in your comment
Absolutely no need for any apology. I think it's ok to generalize, and most people do it. No. Big. Thing. I prefer to call it an opinion. How about putting a different spin on it - like, for example, "women are beautiful and lovely creatures that bring such joy into men's lives." Oh - that's a good thing, so I guess we can't get bent out of shape over that, can we?Nah I'm not, and don't worry about being perfect either. But when I do make a generalization I acknowledge it, apologize and move on.
Would calling me "Son of Satan" be going too far? As I've told people a few times over the years, "I've been called much worse by much better people than you." And yet, I manage to deal with it. I can only imagine how a genuine insult of some kind might have been received. Burning flags in the street and chanting "Death to America!" See any semblance? Grow some skin.Your unhealthy relationships don't reflect the rest of us out there. You're just prejudiced and resentful.
People are entitled to opinions, and have them on almost every topic; men, women, food, sports teams, and the biggie - politicians. If you want to sanitize every single comment and filter out every single opinion, then we'd have an incredibly dull existence here, wouldn't we? If you think there was any shred of hate or intolerance in my post, my my; you are in for a miserable life. I've seen people that are unhappy, that shouldn't be. I'm getting clear signals here as to why that may be. Be happy. Or, look for issues and make something out of nothing - your choice. And this is going to play out every single day of your life. As one of my favorite authors (Norman Vincent Peale) said, "Change your thoughts and change your world."Can YOU have the OPINION that you hate people that have opinions?
What a novel idea. I am beginning to understand how people that dig and look for trouble are their own worst enemy. The posts here have certainly shed light on that way of thinking. I never knew how vehement the WOMEN here could get - I mean, PEOPLE - over a mere observation. Fascinating, Jim.To her, she was being attacked. I doubt it was that at all. If and when she takes the stance to over-deliver, she will gladly be receiving praise.
I stopped reading. I only went back to read it because Kak praised it.Not to be sexist but, how many females stopped reading at "Not to be sexist, but"? And how many males read on?
Let's agree to tell it like it is, ok?Or, maybe they have a formed opinion about differences between men and women. No harm, no foul. Get over it. It's not a bad thing.
You didn't know? Ok. Maybe you've been living under a rock. Or maybe you just ignore it when it happens.I never knew how vehement the WOMEN here could get - I mean, PEOPLE - over a mere observation.
Hmmm... Really? Well...I think we can all agree though, that is a more common trait in men, than women.
You brought it up. I assume you believe it. But are you going to live it?"Change your thoughts and change your world."
Meh. It happens to all of us. Just ironic that it happened in a "bite your tongue" thread.
I did. After an exhaustive reply, I let it go. I have more to deal with than snowflakes with hurt feelings that have a bloodthirst for revenge - for nothing. Oh no - was that not tactful? So little time - so many snowflakes.RDD could have had some tact.

Is that you speaking from a soapbox GPM?Lol. I just stopped in for some good advice. Instead the theme which was supposed to be present has taken a complete 180.
Can we say that this is the internet in general these days? Everyone has a soap box, whether they deserve one or not.
I am replying to you. Right here. "I'm not going to reply."Hey @Kak, funny how things pop up when you are involved with something. The clip below was on my Facebook feed. Thought you might like it.
As one example here, do you know what I like about @minivanman? First of all, he NEVER had a dull post - I've learned a lot from him about many different things. Secondly, although we've never met, I feel I know where he stands on business issues. He speaks up and always - always - has great stories to tell.
Contrast that to some people I know that are super careful to not say something that would reflect an opinion - and therefore they have no stories. Dull city.
For the part of the world that wants to take care to not offend anyone, I submit the following;

With that - I am OUT. Done. A reply here will not be answered. I didn't want to add to this, but this clip was just so perfect, I had to share it. I have memorized this, and I am sure that I will make use of it.
