While boarding my bus way back to home, I noticed a lady asking a gentleman to let her first get on the bus. Her words were very familiar yet strange. She was a professor which made me believe that she was an empowered woman who knows her rights and believes in gender equity. But what she believed in was gender equality. Her words, “Ladies First”, are so hard to digest for me; myself being a woman; I was surprised and baffled.
Do women enjoy equality or better say- Do they actually crave for equality? Taking benefit of her gender simply to get a seat on a bus - was that actually a thing any independent woman would like doing? The gentleman though allowed her to occupy the seat but left me wonder – wasn’t she strong enough to carry her own self with high esteem? Was she really in the need of a seat or just knew how to use her gender in her favour? How to switch between the roles of an independent strong woman and an oppressed hesitant lady?

Welcome back to the show. I've been gone for a couple weeks, and I apologize. It's been a very busy time for me. I'm sure there's plenty of things I missed over the past few days. Let's check it out.

Donald Trump did stuff...what a surprise. This comes from news that he not only claimed that John McCain wasn't a war hero, and not that he gave Lindsey Graham's phone number to the public, but now that Donald Trump is spreading lies and fear and all that other terrible stuff. It sucks to be a Republican right now, and it sucks that Donald Trump thinks he's Republican. Honestly, whoever thinks he can win is just garbage. Fear will get you nowhere, Mr. Trump.

Natural kinds - validate the BibleNatural kinds - validate the Bible4 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
"This notion of species as 'natural kinds' fits splendidly with creationist tenets of a pre-Darwinian age. Louis Agassiz even argued that species are God's individual thoughts, made incarnate so that we might perceive both His majesty and His message. Species, Agassiz wrote, are 'instituted by the Divine Intelligence as the categories of his mode of thinking.' But how could a division of the organic world into discrete entities be justified by an evolutionary theory that proclaimed ceaseless change as he fundamental fact of nature?"

So Let's Talk About CircumcisionSo today we're going to talk about male infant routine circumcision done in the United States (and South Korea). I'm deliberately narrowing down the scope of what I'm talking about because there are many topics that can derail the conversation. However, we will be talking about circumcision done as a preventative measure in parts of Africa. We will also be talking about a popular fad of people piercing their infant girl's ears in certain parts of Europe.So Let's Talk About Circumcision4 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
This is not a fun topic. This is also not a fun topic to do research on, because it's very hard to NOT to be biased. It's a topic that touches on religious freedoms, gender dynamics, and morality. What makes this topic particularly difficult to garner objective information on is that how helpful it is seen as is largely a cultural thing. For example, a scientist in the United States who was circumcised as an infant may be less optimistic towards information that showcases the downsides of circumcision. What can I say?

A Lack of Equality in Equestria - Representations of Masculinity.
‘Friendship is Magic’ has been celebrated in terms of its rich array of personalities and avoidance of flimsy female stereotypes – for example Faust wanted Rarity to be interested in fashion but they didn’t all have to be - Rainbow Dash and Applejack are accepted tomboys. The mane six have been given more unique and varied characters to reflect the fact that there is not one type of girl (unlike criticism aimed at some girl-toy based brands where all the characters have similar shallow fashion-obsessed personalities). However, despite furthering the representation of varied female identity, in FIM

I actually LOVE the edits in the link above-granted, yes, Lara does do an ass-load of exercise, so she would more than likely be a skinnier woman if she existed in real life. But for a bunch of others, there is NO excuse.
I don't think it would hurt ANYONE for female videogame characters to be bigger, and not obese or anything-just more than just skin, bones, and boobage.
The same goes for men too-if the character isn't the Hulk or exercising most of the time, they shouldn't be built like hercules....They should be built like average males-of all different sizes!
What absolutely kills me is when gamers on both sides then take it to the extreme when the unreasonable sizing-issue is brought up-retorting with 'OH, so you just want the characters to be Fat?? That's skinny-shaming!"
Honestly I want more of a happy-medium when it comes to videogame characters, for BOTH genders with a bunch of body types-to not only make
Piece of Evidence That Mr. Enter Is QuestionablePiece of Evidence That Mr. Enter Is Questionable1 week ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
I do acknowledge that Mr. Enter is a very polarizing critic, but this just polarized my opinion on Enter, as quoted by Troper EDFHemlock, who works on the trope pantheons:
"He also had his fans also spammed the account of a guy on TV Tropes named Shota, who posted comments of agreement on negative reviews of Enter's work (and every negative review has been flagged by his butthurt fanboys). It got to the point where Shota had to abandon his account, and Enter had absolutely no repercussions about it, claiming the troper was "playing the victim".
I even PM'ed TPPR the entire page."
Basically, his fans blamed Shota for some negative comments, and he absolutely had no empathy on him.
Also, about Rule 6 of his page says that "If you hit me with a direct personal attack I'm going to block you. By insulting me... what do you think you're going to accomplish? I am going to have a negative reception to anything else you might want to say. And yes I've had my own problems with this and I'm strug

I have come up with strategy. We'll talk about that later. For now I'm going into the facts, science, greed, and what a lot of stupid motherfuckers who are little ignorant fucks for thinking this stuff. So let's start out with the science.
Seven billion people in the world. One billion people are starving. We are using up our resources and taking more than we need, our population is growing. By 2050 it's suppose to increase to nine billion. 40% of our land is for farming purposes. Thanks to medicine and prolonging human life. Our population has grown. Thanks medicine. It's possible to end world hunger. I'm sure it is. Since our population is growing due to advancing medicine. The world is
Living as an AsexualA lot of people have asked me a lot of questions about asexuality, and do you know what? That's a good thing, I'm glad people are asking questions. From someone who is asexual, the concept is kind of easy to grasp, but I'd imagine to allosexual (non-asexuals, which should just be "sexual people" imo) people, saying you don't want to have sex is like saying that you don't want to eat food. It's not abnormal, but it seems like a sign of something legitimately being wrong with that person. To tell you the truth, given the choice about being allosexual or asexual, I wouldn't know which I'd pick. They both seem to have a lot of advantages and disadvantages.Living as an Asexual1 week ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
I am an asexual male. Particularly a sex-repulsed asexual male. Not all asexuals are sex-repulsed, but I am. Sex-repulsed means that seeing genitals of either sex, no matter how physically appealing they might be, or even the act of sex itself makes me feel legitimately disgusted. Now, let me be perfectly clear: I am not against people h

Researchers suggest that virtually all modern men--99% of them, say one scientist--are closely related genetically and share genes with one male ancestor, dubbed 'Y-chromosome Adam.'

Scientists get a little nervous when they realize that their discoveries lead them back to Genesis chapter 1. Notice the use of the word "uncanny" in the following quotes:

"The Universe suddenly exploded into being...The big bang bears an uncanny resemblance to the Genesis command." Jim Holt, Wall Street Journal science writer.

First Impressions - Final Fantasy VIIYeah, the title is not a typo, I literally never played Final Fantasy VII, which is one of the most talked about and hyped up games of all time, until last week. Yeah, this game had eluded my grasp for 18 years and now, only now, I got around to playing it, and in my opinion, it's a good game. Not as great as the Mass Effect Trilogy, but still a solid RPG. Before this, the only Final Fantasy game I played was 10, and to be honest, I genuinely didn't like 10. The story was boring, the battle system and its "Sphere Grid" system was too confusing for me to figure out, Tidus was an annoying douche, and (while this is a little nitpicky to be honest) I hated the Blitzball mini-game. However, the music was good and the graphics, while aged, were pretty good for an early-PS2 game, especially with some of the FMVs. Despite the game looking and sounding good, I just couldn't bring myself to push through with Final Fantasy X, and while I may regain interest to finish that game in the future, I doFirst Impressions - Final Fantasy VII1 week ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

Oh, Those Funny Suffixes
...a suffix synopsis, with suggestions for funny and creative new names.
Have you ever needed a good, original name for a person, place, or thing? Perhaps you were writing a story, play, or poem, and you simply had to find an unusual descriptive name? Have you ever wracked your brain trying to think of a cool internet nickname, user-name or a clever new name for an email account?
The following list of suffixes may be a big help next time you find yourself in need. Simply take a word and add one or more of these suffixes to the end of your word...and, presto, you have a new name for whatever it is you need.
Playing with the possibilities can be very amusing, even if it is quite incomplete. Single syllable nouns and verbs work very nicely, as do multiple syllable words. Words which end in "er," and "le," are especially good candidates, too. and common sense and discretion will often be your guide in litt

Some Odd Notes on Lizard Psychology and PhysiologySo, a few observations I've made that I can't seem to find on the Internet:Some Odd Notes on Lizard Psychology and Physiology2 weeks ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Anoles: occasionally make a "hih"/ short hissing noise when threatened. Seems to be made from quickly expelling air from the lungs, not from the vocal cords. This behavior is relatively rare and tends to be more common in adult male brown anoles. When they bite, they "chew" on the object and don't let go for quite some time. Some are so aggressive they will chase after your finger and will do backflips to try to bite you. When threatened by smaller predators (skinks, other anoles, glass lizards), large males may extend their dewlap and bob their heads several times and will vertically flatten their sides, probably to appear larger and more threatening. Females and juveniles usually flee. As far as hunting goes, anoles will occasionally take prey larger than their head, but they take a while to eat it-between 30-60 minutes. Claws appear to be fused scales. Tongues are not forked, and they don't appear to have a

Caitlyn Jenner and a solider who fights for this country.
People are claiming that "courage" isnt standing on a stage and helping millions of people understand, respect and help others be themselves, but fighting and dying for our country is.
A bit of news for you, both are.
A man/woman can join the army, fight for our country and be the person they are. It's a great thing what they do out on the battlefield don't get me wrong. But Caitlyn Jenner is courage too.
Caitlyn is supporting people in the LGBTQA+ community to be themselves, it may seem like nothing to a lot of people but it's extremely brave to do this especially considering the amount of dislike and hateful comments effect this community every single day. If you expect your child to be themselves, then stop shaming people who support, or are part of the LGBTQA community. Because your child could be part of that community and you've just pus

Frozen is not Feminist PropagandaFrozen is a great movie. It is quite possibly one of Disney's best works of arts in its tenure since the likes of The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules, and many more. However, the one thing I can't seem to stand is some people misinterpret the lessons that the movie is trying to teach and twisting them to align with their own twisted interpretations. It's absolutely mind boggling how inept people can be. It's like they're from an entirely different planet. No, the movie doesn't imply that all men are like Hans and that women; even sisters, should go into lesbian relationships. Because all women are good, pure and angelic.Frozen is not Feminist Propaganda2 weeks ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

Also, it doesn't encourage you to partake in incestuous behavior. The sanity meter doesn't need to be at an all time high for that to be a no brainer.
