Why do people think this way? I love making fun of everyone, most of all myself.

Yeah, you really can't say that men wouldn't like it if you made fun of them (no sarcasm intended). I could launch into a looong explanation about why that is but why it still doesn't make jokes about women any less misogynistic, but I don't think this is the forum for that. I made a quick observation about something I feel personally slighted by, but I can see that we might all just end up fighting and saying things like "NO U".

Idk, if anyone wants to continue talking about it, PM me (as some of you have :D). But my initial comment still stands.


Well thank you for the unnecessary trollish tangent... we needed a break from all the sarcasm and humor anyway :roll:

Yeah, you're right. When I'm not on my period, I like putting down women - it's like my hobby and junk. But when I'm on it, these things called "thoughts" set in and I get these crazy ideas about equality and worth. Thanks for reminding me that my objections are to be dismissed as PMS because I'm a woman. I needed that!

With every consecutive post of yours... you prove my initial point. Which was that you are, more likely than not, a very unpleasant person to be around.

I believe that SmbdyBringMeSomeHam's comment has been taken totally out of proportion. She simply stated something that upset her and was not at all inflammatory. Sometimes jokes can be offensive simply because they may stem from a societal view of women as being "bitches" and etc. Obviously, that may not have been your intention and where you are coming from and that is perfectly fine. However, I do not believe it is okay to attack her simply because she noted something and then explain how she felt. The explanation may well be that there is a high proportion of straight males so it is easy to make the relationship analogy. What I do not understand is why this cannot simply be explained without being rude and mean to someone.

Here, let me make this fair, I am a woman (although, those who know me will especially see the humor in this post) :

Dear University of Washington Law:

I asked to date you back in the days when when I didn't realize that some schools would look beyond the size of my ass and boobs and actually see me for the woman I am inside. And guess what, I have been courted by many men with far larger bank accounts, job, and dicks than you!!! Thanks anyhow you old, fat, balding, broke, no dick loser.

Sincerely,
LRSlayer

P.S.- the joke is that I am a lesbian! :)

Alternatively, why you all so mad?

Additionally, how'd your butt get hurt?

And with every one of yours, you prove mine. All you have are ad hominem attacks. There may be a well-reasoned response to what I initially said, but if there is, you don't know what it is or are too inarticulate to express it.

I say these things only because I am secure in the knowledge that I am among intelligent people who are willing to discuss and think about things like this.

But so far, the only responses I've gotten are someone rolling their eyes and another person saying that I seem unpleasant. Clearly, I was mistaken.


I have enjoyed this thread until now, and as a woman who thinks this stuff is funny I resent the implication that I need to be offended by humor to be considered 'intelligent'. Chill out and worry about important things. I don't think women are in danger of being oppressed on TLS.

Woa, woa. That is offensive to balding fat men with little bank accounts, lack a job, and minimal endowment! Better be careful and sensitive to everyone here. :roll:

Seriously though, intelligent post; it made me laugh!
