Re: A very common pro-choice argument

Well I am not a parent but if corporal punishment was up for a vote in schools as a caring citizen I would vote against it. We vote on things that don't directly and immediately affect us all the time. Not to say I'm pro-unplanned pregnancy.

Re: "Feminists don't have a sense of humor"

gel I think guys can joke about other things but when in larger groups with other guys that masculinity pressure increases. I'm pretty sure that's a thing.

Re: Cancer clinics

Yeah my SO likes me to put my hand on her to cure her aches and pains. In my behavior modification class they talked about how "some" migraine sufferers can be relieved by not reinforcing pain related behaviors that are connected in the brizzain.

Re: another strike against my working memory:

I hate when I can't understand the "why" of math. Like why do you square in variance instead of absolute value. I don't understand how squaring is more meaningful. Or Pythagorean theorem I just don't get conceptually or intuitively why.

Re: Ouch

My friend had an identical bicycle as mine but it didn't occur to me that his breaks might be more sensitive. I was going pretty quick, tapped the breaks and flipped over the handles and landed on my head. It hurt real sharply for an hour and I was pretty grumpy for that time. When it first happened...

Re: Representation in Film, Visualized

Sad. At least in Star Wars there are some serious female badasses. Rey is like Han and Luke combined. Maz is a female yoda. Leaha is the top general of the resistance as far as I can tell. But overall things could get much better.

How weird is it that I put my SO's vibrating heating pad on my chest to relax?

I don't need it for pain it just makes me relax and feel warm. She uses it for back pain.

Re: Books on leadership and influence

Wow thanks a lot! I feel like influence is my biggest weakness. I am too blunt and if I can't have my message and ideas valued they won't be utilized or taken up by groups in my personal life or at work. I also talk too much and listen too little.

Re: emasculating my spouse

Masculinity is hard for guys. It's hard to just make our expectations of ourself go away. I haven't worked out seriously in ten years but I can't shake the feeling I need to bulk up just a little (I'm thin). If my significant other was doing more home repairs than me it would get to me even if I did...

Books on leadership and influence

So there are way too many such books out there and many are too similar to be worth my time. I came across the seven habits which I never had given the time of day too before and was blown away; it's very existential. I know you guys are mostly much more well read than me. Any suggestions?
