Good point. I guess I assumed that while stalking through her fb photos. However, I did refrain from passing judgment regarding her looks because I wanted to know what she had to say and where she wanted the conversation to go before placing her appearance on a numerical scale.
Evidently, I have failed in proving the point I was attempting to make. My point was that jokes about domestic violence from a test prep company are inappropriate. I understand the point of joking about serious issues, including this. It's necessary to deal with this behavior. At the same time, we need to be careful about what we as a society condone.
These aren't things that can be proved.

K, well in attempting to prove my point, sorry if I overreacted. And there's this: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/horrible ... he-grammys We can blame these girls for being complete idiots (who do not understand domestic violence), but in my opinion it comes down to a fundamental inequality that's very much reflected in the posts in this thread.

Hi. You guys have made some great inferences, albeit wrong.

1. I'm female
2. I don't have a facebook, but I am logged into my friend's facebook (which is why I could not comment on the post OP mentioned; that would just be rude of me to make comments on fb through my friend's profile). So yes, I made the comment in regards to her appearance. I was like hey, you linked your facebook, you're cute. I didn't mean to offend you lol
3. I play for both sides

See, that's the thing, I'm not sure OP realizes a lot of those people were just messing with her. She might think they were genuinely being sexist.

Well, I figured it out after reading the first few posts. I just can't believe someone would use their real name on a forum that adcomms do read, crazy stuff

Ah... crap, forgot about her.

Idk, I think Hannah McKay was still worse. Maybe not worse on her own but the whining weenis she turned Dexter into ruined the season. Maybe it was the actress. She ruined every scene she was in the way January Jones ruins every scene of Mad Men she's in.

Except after she got fat. I <3 fat Betsy.

tl:dr

Is OP one of those downtrodden women who sees sexism and fault in anything ever touched by man?

For dingy's benefit, here's an excellent tl;dr of this thread:
SemperLegal wrote:I think I can mediate from the center. After all, I am half women, on my mothers side.

A few novel things occurred today:

An Berkeley Undergrad is offended by the white, patriarchal machine
Anonymous internet posters are crass to a woman.
A complaint about offensive memes about violence towards women is plastered with offensive memes about violence/
Random, low post count posters defend her.
No ones mind is changed.

^ In order to like Suits you have to understand it for what it is, a realistic portrayal of biglaw life in NYC. And hot law babes.

If by realistic you mean completely out of touch with reality, then I would agree.

Yeah, that's why I am not a huge fan. I prefer dramas to be somewhat realistic.
