I'll be taking a break from the site, at least until it finds a new punching bag than feminism. I want to keep fighting the good fight, but I'm tired. To paraphrase Theoden, what can one do against such reckless hate? I came here to be entertained, not to have to defend women's rights and basic common sense on every third post. This isn't quitting in a huff, it's that can't keep commenting, but I can't in good conscience be on the site and say nothing. Goodbye admin, goodbye all, for the moment.

The word "may" (as seen in the content) is often used professionally and academically to mean either one of two things:

Professionally: "This is a 100% valid fact, but in case you want to be a butt, I'm still right" Example: Contact with fire may cause burns

They aren't against patriarchy in all senses. They are against THE patriarchy, that being male dominance over females.

80% of the senate is male
82% of the House of Representatives are male

Only 4.4% of the Fortune 500 CEOs are women

Approximately 70% of people in national minimum wage jobs are women

The full time gender pay gap is 10%(men over women)
The part time gender pay gap is 34.5%(men over women)

#25 - anonymous (06/03/2014) [-]
Women feel as though they are being oppressed as they see themselves as naturally equal in average ability to men, in terms of intelligence at least. If that is taken as true, the figures should be much closer to 50/50 on all of them and the pay gap should be non-existent.

Black people are on average taller, height helps basketball, ergo black people on average are better at basketball.

Political jobs require intelligence, therefore suggesting that the two are equatable suggests that you think women are less intelligent than men on average. If you do i can't argue with you but if you don't it should be clear why it's different.

Maybe they should be asked why they don't hire women? What's your point, moot, lack of understanding on the topic

Feminism is all about changing definitions of words (an easy example being the insane broadening of of the term "rape", but there are many other cases as well). Any male authority figure can be labelled as a patriarch - that's the definition of the word - and so patriarchy would be defined as "of being a patriarch".

Though you're right in that fathers and fatherhood do not equate to patriarchy, it's an umbrella term, so they are included in the definition without even needing to make any changes to it.

"Down with patriarchy"... I believe when it started, they knew exactly what they were saying...
User avatar #3 - twistedwoodthing (06/03/2014) [-]
The patriarchy that feminists are talking about is social systems that are disproportionately controlled by men, and the gender divisions and assumptions that are based on them. "archy" = rule, in this case rule by solely by men. Fatherhood isn't about men ruling women, so why would they have a problem with it?

I don't know *why* it picked up on that - I wouldn't think google was tailoring it to show me those results as it's not really my thing.

Ran out of room to reply:
Anyway, I currently live in what was my family home with my siblings and two other renters (my parents moved, we live in the house and pay rent). As for the travelling, I did a 6 month study abroad program in France a couple years back, and had the option to travel around a bit. I lived in Dijon, in Burgundy, which isn't quite as sketchy as the south.
As for Fargo, I can't recommend it enough. It's hilarious, and at times really intense. I like my humour pretty dark so it works for me.
User avatar #36 to #35 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
That's pretty sweet. When I lived in the UK being of age I used every opportunity to travel around. Especially Italy, I love Italy. I still do that, to a certain extent. In fact I recently moved to Washington DC.
User avatar #37 to #36 - twistedwoodthing (12/05/2013) [-]
Oh cool, spent about two weeks in Northern Italy. Rome, Florence, Sienna, Venice. I went on a bus tour that was primarily comprised of retired aussies and kiwis, they were a lark.
What are you doing in Washington DC? I suppose the standard assumption is something to do with government.
User avatar #38 to #37 - thebestpieever (12/05/2013) [-]
No, my contract my then-current employer ended with and at the same time I had friction with the girl I was living with in Missouri. So, since I've been travelling all around since I was 15, I just packed my things in a container, got up on my bike and decided on a spot on the map. I'm looking for a job, but I have enough saved to live for about 10 months.

It's a reference to a character from the Gormenghast books (if you don't know them, it's just about the strangest fantasy series I've ever read. Only the first, and maybe second, books are worth reading because the author was partially insane by the time he wrote the third). You can just call me Thing, or Chloe if you prefer.
Why did you decide to go by Thebestpieever? And shall I call you pie?

I like Chloe; Chloe's pretty.
Well, I used to listen to watch this show where the usernames would sent in silly things that happened whilst they played videogames and the hosts would often comment on the usernames of the senders. So, I thought this would spark some nice comment.
As for what you call me, yeah Pie's fine, you can also call me Walker.
I also think I'm gonna read those books as soon as I'm finished with the one I'm reading now.
User avatar #10 to #8 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
The writing is amazing, but it's not easy going. Mervyn Peake was also an illustrator, so he describes a lot of scenes very meticulously. It's great for visualizing the enormous, gothic castle where it all takes place, and the characters he describes are by turns complex and over the top. Sometimes all the description is overwhelming and you'd give anything for a bit of simple dialogue. But I've yet to read a series that felt so much like there was an actual world behind it.

What are you reading right now? I'm always on the lookout for recommendations.
User avatar #11 to #10 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
I've been reading a book called "Jam" by Ben Croshaw. It's... It's alright. I'm about 60 pages in and so far there's been some really obvious problems narration-wise to the point where I often have to go back a few pages because I've found myself completely lost about that the characters are currently doing. The stream of conciousness narration is very well done, when it's there, but it has a very inconsistent style of narration and tone. It is a very good comedy when it tries to be one, but the more serious stuff feels haphazard and more like an attempt by the author to be validated rather than any serious story he wanted to tell.
User avatar #12 to #11 - twistedwoodthing (11/26/2013) [-]
Oh cool, Yahtzee's book! (or one of them anyway, I think he has two now) Yeah, I'm sorry to hear it has issues, although I'd like to read it. I love his game reviews, I was wondering how the sense of humour would translate to a full length novel.
User avatar #13 to #12 - thebestpieever (11/26/2013) [-]
You know Yahtzee, that's co cool. I never read Mogworld, but from what I hear most people liked it better than Jam.. The humour is there, and really well done, though.

If I manage to save up for a new laptop any time in the next year, though, I'd like to play Amnesia, I love horror. I'd like to try to get a copy of bioshock, too, since everyone raves about it and my brother might let me borrow his 360 after exam period. Do you have any recommendations?

I've only recently taken up playing MTG and Dungeons & Dragons, but I love them, and music-wise, I've got a very mongrel taste but lately I've been listening to increasing amounts of metal.
And what about you sir? Likes? Dislikes? Pet Peeves? Quirks?

Horror an fantasy, also reading, writing and watching it. Game Of Thrones, The Graham Norton Show, Friends (The only shows I watch that haven't created a super invasive fandom that has alienated the rest of the internet) Music: Everything, really, but I'm mainly a fan of Rock'n'roll. Also a big fan of metal, though, Black Sabbath is my second favourite band. I'm also big on motorcycles: riding, fixing, looking, buying, all of it.
As for pet peeves and quirks: I can't think of any pet peeve that's big enough to mention, and I have waaay too many little quirks.
Sir, I like that; you are a very refined woman, milady.

I noticed some Dr Who on your profile (I was creeping - best way to find good stuff on Funny Junk is to browse your friends' uploads/favourites.) I likes me some doctor but I'm way behind, and I'm not sure I could ever warm up to Matt Smith. Tennant's my favourite, in part because I so respect him as an actor (goddamn brilliant hamlet), and in part because I have a fangirlish crush. Don't judge me.
Speaking of, I got some serious feels from some of the stuff in your faves, esp. "Love" and "Ancient Wisdom." that's good taste right there.
Black Sabbath is actually playing in my city next year, but I haven't heard enough of them to know if I should try to get tickets. Do you have any album suggestions?
Also, you mentioned moving to the states, and given the references to Dr. Who and Treacle, I'm guessing from somewhere in the UK? Basically, what accent should I be reading your comments in, haha?

When it comes to Black Sabbath it comes like this:
The first two: Black Sabbath and Paranoid are masterpieces; superb albums, don't think I've hear anything like them. The third, Master of Reality is great but nothing close. Vol. 4 is good. The Fifth, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is also great. Sixth, Sabotage is also good. The seventh, Technical ecstasy is very good but it sounds nothing like what comes before or after. The eight just blows. The Ninth, Heaven and Hell is also a masterpiece but it is heaver than anything they've done. And the tenth is also great, Master of Reality level. After that, they have some good stuff, some bad stuff but nothing as noteworthy (I would suggest "Cross Purposes" "13" and "Headless Cross).

When it comes to the accent... that's weird. I was born in Spain, but I lived in the UK till I was six. Then we moved to Spain for the briefest time (like 4 months) but I was in the hospital so it might as well have been the UK. Then we moved to Mexico. Then I went back to the UK and now America. So... yeah, my accent is as if a Spaniard tried and half succeeded to speak in a midlands accent. It's a shame that the whole ordeal messed up my English accent 'cause I don't even speak Spanish all that well.

With you I guess I can imagine (Being oot and aboot with some loonies in your pocket, eh) what kind of accent you have.

On the theme of Doctor Who, I like Smiths performance but I think that most of the stories he's been in have been rubbish save for about 10 throughout his whole run.

Well in that case I'll probably start with the first two, and Heaven and Hell (I tend to like it pretty heavy, so that sounds like my direction.)
As to accent, I never used to think I had one until I became friends with some Americans on an exchange. We sounded just the same until it came to words like "out and about", whereupon they'd giggle at how I said it. The way they said it, to me, sounded like flapping your mouth open to catch flies. I actually visited a bit of England once, only a little under a week in London (and only a weekend in Spain) but I'd love to go back someday. Ever been North of the US border?

I'm a big fan of the way they speak in the Americas overall. From the southern states to Canada, it all sounds really cool to me. Also... I apologise in the name of the British Nation for anything you may have seen in London if you went anywhere near the east side of town.

I've been to Canada three times. My parents used to own a little house near Whitehorse, so we'd sometimes go there in the winter to ski and stuff. And just once I went over the border while I was faffing about in NYC after a work trip. I liked it, it really is my type of place. Sunny and warm locales just aren't my style.

I don't know how people can live in tropical places, the lack of seasonal change would send me haywire. I think it's a deep-rooted, physiological thing. And aside from the confusing metro system London was quite pleasant, I saw worse things in France daily.
I haven't yet been to Whitehorse and that end of the country (I'm from the east coast), but I'm trying to save to go there this summer.
As to accents, there are a lot of good ones. I'd have to say my favourite out of anywhere is a slight Indian or Irish accent, although for North America there's some newfie accents that are surprisingly musical. Have you ever seen the movie Fargo? The accents in it are exaggerated but hilarious.

Yeah, France is... really rough. Not exactly nice.
I had assumed you lived with your family, and, by extension you'd go on holiday with them. But apparently I was wrong; do you live on your own?
Also, no, I really want to watch it but it's on that infinite queue of "Damn it I was born in the 90's so there are 70 years of good movies to catch up on".

Yeah, I feel you. I used to be a spoilt rich kid and a super hardcore gamer and then some stuff happened and I had to get a job and I have the time to play like a game a month, if that. I still watch all the reviews and stuff.

For PC I would recommend my favourite game: Fallout 3, the sequel New Vegas. Alan Wake, it's not perfect but it is unlike anything I've seen. Bioshock, definitely, Infitine is goot but not as much as one and you should avoid 2. If you like tactical games I would recommend Xcom. If you like Fable I would suggest Skyrim since it takes the freedom aspect to the extreme and in the opposite side I would suggest Mass Effect since it takes the narrative and customisation also to the extreme.

Sigh, sad confession bear time: I spend a lot of time on the internet, on sites like this, reading comics, watching reviews etc that have to do with video games, but my brother is the real gamer in my house. I don't think I've played anything seriously since Fable 2, and haven't been better at him at a game since Starfox 64. I'd play computer games, but my laptop wouldn't be able to handle it. So, essentially, I'm immersed in gaming culture, love talking and hearing about it, but can't play.
I am the filthiest of casuals.
