Girl replies: "I can guess how many pulls to turn a ceiling fan off on the first try!"
She points up and says: "3 pulls"
Professor X stands up and pulls 3 times. After the third pull the fan turns off.
Professor X: "Yeah thats cool and all, but not really a super power..."
Girl: "Yeah I was jut kidding, I can heal paraplegics"
Professor X, still standing: "Oh my god"
I recently went to have drinks with a best girlfriend of mine and she asked me for my honest opinion as a guy as to why she can’t seem to find any guys that she would normally be interested in dating willing to date her. My friend is cute but she is a bit overweight and doesn’t present herself physically in the most flattering light. I have had guy friends of mine say they’d date her if it wasn’t for this issue. I asked her if she really wanted to know the truth. She said yes. So I proceeded to tell her about how she would get dates if she did lose some weight and make an effort to pit her best foot forward. This did not go well. She got really upset and told me that that was shallow and that she shouldn’t have to change for anyone. Be that as it may, I told her this was the reality of the situation. Needless to say but we haven’t spoken since then. Maybe I should’ve just kept my mouth shut but from what I had been told by my friends regarding her and my own personal experience, this was the truth that she asked for. I feel bad but I felt like I should be honest. Unfortunately it seems that honesty just caused me a great friendship.
TL:DR I told my best friend the truth about why guys don’t want to date her and it ended badly.
A Christian priest called a 13-yo North Korean refugee girl "too dirty to be saved" simply because she had been raped by the people who had trafficked her into China. Both the girl and her mother had been raped and sold into slavery in China.
That's Christianity for you, a child, who's been through hell, who's been sold into slavery, raped, abused, scarred mentally and emotionally, is "TOO DIRTY" to be saved according to Christianity.
Please watch from 1:06:00 and learn how Christians treat perhaps the most vulnerable group on the face of the earth.
I know this sounds something that everybody already seems to know, but that realisation hit me two days ago and I cannot get it out of my head and I feel I’m getting more and more angrier about it.
Many here have probably either watched or heard about the TV show that deals with women’s place in a dystopian world, based on a book (I’m not sure if I’m allowed to say the title). Well, I finally watched the last two seasons after being completely distraught when I watched the first two seasons and needed to distance myself. It was in the middle of the previous US presidency and everything just felt too gloomy and I couldn’t watch it, so I did it now and it made me want to discuss the show in length.
I spoke with someone who is dear to me, who is pro-women and pro-women’s rights and who happens to be male.
And he told me that he doesn’t see how these things could happen or would happen in the place where we live right now, which isn’t the US, but it is in Europe.
To say that we had a disagreement over this topic would be an understatement. Despite everything I said, all the examples I brought out - both from modern and historic - he was pretty adamant that it wouldn’t happen where we were and if the first signs were there “women should protest” and I felt like everything I tried to explain about the book, the series, the whole point just flew past his head. Because he couldn’t even entertain the thought that this could happen where we were, even with women protesting and disagreeing with this.
And it made me realise that I, as a woman, have grown up to know that my rights aren’t given, that I need to support expanding those rights and that even when these rights have been achieved, one has to be loud and ensure that the rights are being kept as they’ve been achieved. And men... just haven’t. He’s never had to worry that a doctor will think he’s being hysterical or overwhelmed. He’s never had to seriously worry that he won’t be listened to. He doesn’t even entertain the thought that someone would not allow him to use his own hard earned money or not allow him to have a bank account, because that’s what happens in dictatorships and we live in modern times.
And it makes me so angry, even now, two days later, because I see the book and the TV show as a warning of what might happen if fundamental religiousness is allowed to control the society or adherence to restrictive societal expectations of women can lead to remaking of society and for him it’s all... keep reading on reddit ➡
Some say having a nice personality will make you more attracted to the person as you get to know them. Is it true for you?
Y’all are very cute (:
EDIT: I am an idiot. I meant Gone Girl. This is what happens when you write posts late at night.
I read the book right before the movie came out and was instantly FLOORED by this monologue, and even highlighted it. So when it was portrayed in the movie so perfectly (in my own opinion, at least), I got goosebumps.
The cool girl monologue: > Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.
>Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they’re fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. For a long time Cool Girl offended me. I used to see men – friends, coworkers, strangers – giddy over these awful pretender women, and I’d want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has watched too many movies written by socially awkward men who’d like to believe that this kind of woman exists and might kiss them. I’d want to grab the poor guy by his lapels or messenger bag and say: The bitch doesn’t really love chili dogs that much – no one loves chili dogs that much! And the Cool Girls are even more pathetic: They’re not even pretending to be the woman they want to be, they’re pretending to be the woman a man wants them to be. Oh, and if you’re not a Cool Girl, I beg you not to believe that your man doesn’t want the Cool Girl. It may be a slightly different version – maybe he’s a vegetarian, so Cool Girl loves seitan and is great with dogs; or maybe he’s a hipster artist, so Cool Girl is a tattooed, bespectacled nerd who loves comics. There are variations to the window dressing, but believe me, he wants Cool Girl, who is basically the girl who likes every fucking thing he likes and doesn’t ever complain. (How do you know you’re not Cool Girl? Because he says things like: “I like strong women.” If he says that to you, he will at some point fuck someone else. Because “I like strong women” is code for “I hate str... keep reading on reddit ➡
Welcome to the Dear Diary post!
While this is a place where you can discuss many things, here are a few guidelines to keep in mind...
Today's title was brought to you by u/DamphairCannotDry !
But when she found out what an asshole he was she decided I was more attractive and made out with me instead. I love bisexual girls.
-This is an issue that, in theory, bothers people a lot. They imagine a jacked dude pulverizing women. In reality that's just not happening, but it gets the people going. Great distraction from shit that's actually happening.
