Re: majority privilege

White priv is applicable and more accurate and to the point in many cases. There are of course other privileges such as being extroverted (despite all the people who try to prove that introversion is amazing the fact that you have to prove it says something), privilege of being male, privilege of be...

Re: On God, "he", and kids...

I don't like to touch religion in any serious way as far as integrating it into my life. Whether God is a man or woman is one of many problems I have come across. You address one problem you have ten more especially if you base your religious beliefs on a book that if read contains lots of interesti...

Re: Traffic incident, worried & upset

I think the guy was just blowing off steam. If you are sure there was no damage maybe you don't even know that you hit him. There have been times when I was very close and had to check if I bumped someone. In any case the guy was aggressive and if you have money for a lawyer in some weird scenario t...

Re: Reality doesn't exist until we measure it?

I know essentially nothing about quantum mechanics but I'm ok with that because neither did Einstein right? Only difference between him and I is that if someone explained it to him for five minutes he would be off and running with his own theories lol.

Re: Hi folx

Yes ok my favorite color is violet blue. I love Star Wars very very much. I love first person shooters and the creative ways I can come up with to work with my team and calculate strategy to win. I enjoy bicycling and going deep into nature such as a park and I feel like it's just me and nature. I l...

Re: Kingsman secret service=Charley and the Chocolate factory for young men

I agree. The movie is ostensibly a typical spy movie while having the triply, spooky warnings of a Charlie and the chocolate factory type movie. Some of the scenes have two or three layers of meaning and insinuate values of what it is and is not to be a good person. Even the villain was very complex...

Re: Chivalry

I read op's post and a couple replies in. I think we are all socialized to appreciate certain behaviors in certain situations. It's different for everyone. At work most women expect me to take out the trash. I didn't originally choose to do that more than my fair share until repeatedly the people I ...

Re: Kingsman secret service=Charley and the Chocolate factory for young men

They reformed him from a flat brimmed hat wearing thug to an umbrella wielding I don't know what. I was pointing out the shame and terror inflicted on those in the movie who were less than gentlemanly. Reminded me of charley and the chocolate factory where veruca salt gets sent down the egg shute to...

Ok also with stress.. Us anxious people are so use to acute maxed out stress that when a genuinely challenging situation presents itself maybe we are more use to performing under the pressures of stress.

Re: Kingsman secret service=Charley and the Chocolate factory for young men

Yes the ending special effects and sort of the artistic way everyone's head blew up was very trippy and then the way the royal woman was saved and objectified and offered him anal sex like whaaaat? I felt like the movie was trying to define what it means to be classy. At one point they explained wha...

Kingsman secret service=Charley and the Chocolate factory for young men

Anyone have a take on that "kingsman secret service" movie? I felt like it was trying to show young guys how to be classy and almost had a willy wonka and the chocolate factory scare tactic scene. At one point in the selection process for new spy's they had the candidates use nlp to pick up a woman ...

Re: The things I hate

This stuff is frustrating for sure. But on the bright side you seem very intelligent and you may likely still at your age pick up some more coping skills over the years. My biggest annoyance is my anxiety coupled with confusing self esteem. My brain can't seem to make sense of whether I'm amazing, j...
