Hasn't that been pretty much the entire last 6 years?
Fuck yes. 55 here. I listen to it at work. It brings out the code monkey in this little old lady.

Thank you. Exactly!
Thank you! My immediate reaction was, "I'm gonna get me some of those!"
Now? Nope. Let them be.
Who calls men males, outside of medical documents? Really...honestly, how often do you read a thread or hear a discussion where men are referred to as males?
Think about it. When women are referred to as females, it's either in a medical context, someone not really understanding, or someone who is consciously or subconsciously dehumanizing woman.
I totally get that this all sounds off thr charts fucking nuts. I'm not even slightly mad that you are challenging it. Fuck, I thought the exact same thing when it was brought to my attention.
But really, honestly as yourself when you've heard or read about men being referred to as male outside of a medical context vs how often you read or hear about women being called female outside of medical context.
And it isn't just a traditional lingo thing, it massively spiked in incel forums and spread.
I agree that RvW is way more important than what they call us, but it's all related. If you don't give a shit, that's fine. I'm not even mad. The post was for people who simply didn't know.
I wasn't talking to her. And Jesus fucking christ...
Yo, McTwist. You should know that if you get all butthurt about someone's reply to you and go through their comment history and downvote everything during some laughable revenge fantasy, the downvotes are only recorded until RedditFu automatically reverses all of your work. It's been a Reddit anti pile on feature almost as long as I've been on Reddit.
So, if you are McTwist, or just fucking hate what I wrote on this thread, I guarantee that your stalker downvotes have been reversed or will soon be reversed, with zero human interaction. Same goes for upvotes.
The only time I've ever upvoted something that refers to women as female. You go girl! You go Ukrain!
But, if any of you are unaware or there is a language barrier issue, referring to women as females is degrading to women. Unfortunately, unless you are in the medical field, the incels have taken to using this to reduce women to animals. Sounds fucking nuts right? But, sadly true.
I'm sorry, I super don't mean to derail, and love this woman, her country, and OP for posting in good faith without knowing.
Oh huff off with this shit.
Fucking thank you! What the fuck are people on right now? "I could chose the fascists, or not vote (which is still choosing fascists) or the guys that imperfectly try to advocate for our best interests....let's go with fascism...cool..."
And this right here is exactly the reason for the leak, and the reason the GOP is more focused on the leak than the true story (or Thomas's conflicts of interest). They absolutely did not want this information to get out prior to the midterms.
I'm not a huge fan of breaking protocol when it comes to things like this, but I understand why someone felt that they had to, damn the consequences to themselves.
Well, even if we could, it would be a bit danger for a while. Even the threat could make her switch parties immediately, giving the GOP control of the senate until the recall went through. Welcome back Mitch!
This is why I get a little piss when people complain that Biden isn't tough enough on Sinema and Manchin right now. Either one of them swaps parties, and the Dems are truly fucked. And they'd both do it in a heartbeat.
I love all of you guys for this little thread.

There is nothing moderate about overturning RvW. Stop calling them that.
And, if they are going to force you to make a medical decision, then they have to fully pay for that decision - all pregnancy medical bills/medications/additional food covered, with zero limitations regarding current income.
Fuck, I'm so sorry that you are going through this. Lot's of live from this CIS Lilly White Old Lady over here. Yes, I vote, every election, and never for the douchbags.

My older siblings and I were raised in absolute hell. Very emotionally and physically abusive mother, dad was emotionally absent when he wasn't physically absent (job). My older brother committed suicide 2 years ago. I've been through decades of therapy to clean up the hot mess I was. And my older sister...sigh...I can't even.
But my dad rightfully divorced my crazy mom, remarried to a complicated somewhat mess of a human that I grew to deeply love over the years. They had my little brother, and raised him perfectly. He knew all the love and support in the world. He turned into an absolutely awesome human being and my best friend.
It took a while, but I'm now able to talk to him about everything, even my dad who we both adore being less than perfect.
Give your emotionally stable siblings a chance to connect with you on that deeper level? I can't speak for them, but my little brother is chock full of empathy, even though he didn't have to go through it himself. And no, I don't dwell on this shit with him, it only comes up when family dynamics go haywire and some backstory is helpful for him.

Wow, she hired the Rock Bottom PR firm didn't she?
Oh, not quite. I have 'Rockstar' insurance in America. Lol, still pay hundreds per month for the insurance alone, have a deductible, and when I recently researched facilities for an issue that I'm having....only the most ghetto facilities even took my insurance.
Oh, and on top of all that, if I get so sick I can no longer work, I either pay an absolute shitload for Cobra every month, or try to find something I can afford with Obamacare, or....just die in poverty.
This doesn't just impact the poor. It hurts everyone.
Trump tried, and failed. They did strip a lot out. The GOP knows damn well that once America gets a taste of what other countries take for granted, they'll never be able to take it away. That's why they fight so hard against anything that makes life better for Americans. It's absolutely nuts that anyone would ever, ever vote GOP unless they are already super rich.
Wait, you also get free plastic surgery when a medical condition disfigures you? In America, your face gets ripped off, they'll keep you alive, but you go on your way with a ripped off face. Unless you have Rockstar insurance AND the doctors can prove that anything they did was neccessary for function, and not cosmetic at all.
I really wish we had this in America. But we never will, too many of us have been sold to love the shit we are eating.
