is a small community owned & run by some regular people. Not a company. We are not out to recruit you for data mining purposes, there is no venture capital exit strategy, no one is asking about profit margins or even making this a full time job. There are no ads. Posts here are not a commodity to be sold. We are just a fun group of people who like chatting about creativity, nerdy things, feminism, and sometimes pants. This site started over a decade ago and hasn't even changed colors. It is a safe, inclusive place to share opinions, rant, celebrate, cuss or just take stupid quizzes. We were around before every corporate social media site had to "connect" you and we'll be around when they're all gone.

‘Transgender’ Could Be Defined Out of Existence Under Trump Administration

I wonder what Caitlyn Jenner has to say about that.

The rich and powerful defining whole populations out of existence. That's Orwellian and dystopian.

Tit for Tat.

1. I mean we've had patriarchy set rules probably out of necessaity as jealousy often leads to violence and murder. Laws have to be made about those kinds of things. Granted most of the rules for women were greatly unfair but, biblically women are at a disadvantage. Not saying to much more about that. I also dont have to deny power, only set that sexual desire is the true motive which initializes the action. I dont think I can elaborate on that any further.

2. Good points. Individuals are different but their is also sexual comrodery among men. Which is why I say most males are similar. In a bar, sexual setting, or casual and comfortable setting men tend to talk about sex and women and share thoughts and experiences among each other. This can even be the day we meet, in a group, or just two strangers crossing paths. Men tend to open up about how they really are sexually after a few drinks. Sometimes its a bit too much especially in the instances where I dont know the guy.

can you paint?

If you can paint a room, you can paint a picture. It might not be a great picture. ;)

I did water colors as a kid, and did a bit of painting for craft purposes at a few points. I'm no artist, but I can keep the liquid in sketched-out lines!

MMA Transgenders and feminism

As most people know the transgender community has gained ground in acceptance. Some feminists now largely disagree that transgenders should be allowed to do everything a woman does. Bathroom usage certain jobs etc.

Upon my arrival here I combated the premise that women and men can be considered truly equal. Everyone has potential to uniquely excel past prefixed limitations but, I always say you have to be realistic. Society isnt always realistic and that brings about this topic.

When's the last time you went to the doctor?

A year and a half ago. I've avoided going since because (first) I was grossly overcharged for a routine procedure. They charged me one thing, and then upgraded the entry *three* times to charge me at least a hundred more each time. All in all, I paid several hundred dollars out-of-pocket to biopsy a mole, when I was told it would cost around $50.

I've moved since and just haven't gotten around to a checkup.

Quiz: What kind of engineer should you be?

Engineering is one of the coolest jobs in the world, but there are so many disciplines it can be a little daunting to choose one for yourself! I wasn't happy with the existing quizzes, they were mostly way too direct (do you like bridges or wires? uh...) or way too career-spammy, and they were all way too serious. So with that in mind I took some personality traits and kinda did my best attempt at mapping them to engineering fields. It's not scientific or accurate because it really doesn't matter, engineers do so many things and move around so much there's no way to predict what path you'll end up on... so relax! This point of this test is to combine the fun of a personality quiz with the usefulness of a career test... hey look at that, fun AND useful? It's getting engineer-y already!

I voted by mail and got a sticker

I got my ballot in the mail yesterday and mailed it out today. It came with a sticker saying "I voted by mail" which I happily stuck on after the envelope went in the box. I don't remember getting stickers with the mail-in-ballot in the past. It's also much bigger than any sticker I've gotten when voting at my assigned voting place. :america: With my status in my state of most recent residence, I can only vote in federal elections, but my ballot still contains issues down to my district, and I felt the temptation to vote and also the fear that I would give in invalidating my ballot. by melsbells in Random

Would you rather be hot or cold?

I have been told I radiate a lot of heat. I usually don't get the benefit of feeling this for myself - I tend to get cold hands. So I prefer to be moderately hot in indoor environments.

That said, where I live the heat usually comes with very high humidity. Humidity where sweating brings no relief, where clothes cling to skin with dampness. I'd rather have cold than that.

How important is school?

I don't think school districts matter too much. I saw kids from the less funded schools often going onto ivy leagues and stuff.

I went to a good school too and the atmosphere immediately made me want to leave and finish with independent study, and I did.
