I read that as Designated Hitler rule and was very confused for a moment.

Sorry, but the thread IS about feminism after all. Thumbsup

Yeah, and we mustn't forget all the people without kids of their own who might coincidentally (through non-violent accidental kidnapping or other means) find themselves looking after the aforementioned little shits ("little shit" is a gender neutral term)... Tongue

Ah, but you're blowing the correction off as if I'm quibbling. I think in this context especially, it's important to realize the correction I pointed out really is important. You're not a bad guy for it, but it's still an important point, not a joke. My daughter would be the first to point out that you are corralling her into a single parent role because of her gender. And I am also sensitive to the automatic "single mom" instead of "single parent" because I'm a single dad.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Gasp

I had no idea. Is that recent? Did you discuss it and I just missed it? Really sorry to read that.

I think you need a vacation. Come on down to New York, or even Philadelphia, and the first round is on me. Just the first one, though. Don't get greedy.



Ahhh, hell. Second round is too. Why not?

Understandable. The Designated Hitler rule is, obviously, a different rule. In that one, you pick a friend to be a racist scumbag and try to take over all of Europe while killing all the minorities. Oh, and he also can't drink so he drives you all home. Small price to pay for global domination, though.

My daughter lived with me most of her life from when she was 1 year (when her mom and I split) until she was ten (and her mother moved out of province). Three and a half years of misery later, she finally convinced her mom to let her move back. She was with me right up until she moved into her own place this summer after she graduated. Big Grin

I dont drink.

See you next Tuesday. Clear off the couch. Dodgy

Well, then you drive.

Couch is open anytime you need it. I hope you're not allergic to dogs.

BTW, ditto if you ever find yourself on Vancouver Island.

I have found myself on Vancouver Island but it was 1999. Next time.

RE: Feminism's doublespeak with perpetual victimhood
Just wanted to remind folks that feminism was started by white women who were tired of being treated unfairly by white men. They had every right to do this because they were tired of being housewives and not reaping any true benefits. There has been some negative consequences for the family unit however there has been some great gains (for women).

I am a non-white female. I work in an environment dominated by white men (HVAC-R). When I started this position, I started at the bottom alongside another man who just so happened, attended the same technical school I attended and we finished at same time. I ran into him about a year ago (we also work for the same company) and found out that he has received multiple raises and at the time, I hadn't received ONE. I was immediately pissed and wondered how I should resolve this blatant unfairness. I decided to go to my boss... the very next day... and reminded him how long I had worked in my position and told him that I hadn't received a raise yet. I also advised him that it had come to my attention that someone else had received multiple raises. He said that he would handle it. 2 weeks later my raise was on my check and he told me that (depending on my performance of course), I will receive one about every 6 months are so.

The moral of the story...I have noticed that men are very vocal when they feel that they deserve a raise and women tend to be a bit more timid; I know I was. Maybe, if women took their gripe to their manager concerning their pay rate, they will get the raise they know they deserve. These companies are looking to make money and if you aren't getting paid what you know you deserve and management refuse to give you that deserved raise...it's time to move on.
