And yet, I'm certainly hoping once I graduate from my T10 law school I can make some $$ before I retire to happy quilting grandparenting.

(I hope the kiddo feels better soon!)

RE: FAFSA

According to FAFSA you're independent.

Many schools are going to ask for your parental info via NeedAccess or their own institutional forms, however.

This implies that being talkative is both a more prevalent characteristic in women as well as a less desirable characteristic in women than in men. 

hold on, why does it necessarily imply both?  why can't it be one or the other?

It implies both because he didn't just say that women are more talkative, but also that that's why men don't want to be in relationships with them. 

I actually didn't say either. You need to watch the generalizations. Both of you. I "didn't just say" anything about all women or all men.

::shrugs::

I'm pretty sure you need to watch the generalizations too. Particularly when commenting in a thread like this, if you say "[the] women [i know] who are single are obviously single because they talk too much" quite frankly, the parts not bracketed are more important, because a. you saw the need/space to make that comment in this thread, which means you thought it was pertinent and b. because this IS a thread of generalizations, so you need to be really careful about what you're saying.

You don't get to get out of criticism/concern about what you're saying by saying "Oh, well, I was only talking about the PEOPLE I KNOW so it's okay." While you're right to acknowledge that there is a selection bias in the people you hang out with, the way you're trying to excuse it doesn't really make all that much sense. You're saying the people you hang out with don't like people who talk incessantly...how does that explain, then, these women in your circle who talk too much and are therefore single? Are they the ones who somehow ended up in friendships with your circle in spite of the fact that they won't shut up? People will be friends with them, just not date them? Well, that becomes problematic, because that ties the talking to their sexual/intimate desirability, not just their desirability as people. I'm confused by your explanation.

I just ate a slice of homemade Cherry Cheesecake that one of our (female) customers brought in for us.  I love delicious stereotypes.

My wife better be a good cook/baker.

Did you see my penis cake?

OMG you said I'm wrong. Misogynist.

But the subtext of what you're saying is some combination of some or all of the following: a) Women should not voice their opinions *too* much, b) Women should defer to men in social scenarios, c) It's annoying when women talk to much because they don't have anything interesting/of value to say most of the time. 

i didn't get any of this as the subtext.  the subtext i got was: women talk more than men.

but along with that is "and that makes them suck to hang out with and explains why they're single."

::shrugs::

well i personally don't like being around talkative people in general.  exceptions to this are few and far between.*

*if you're an exception, you KNOW you're special

::chatters incessantly::

::finds out she isn't special  :'(::

I mean, the thing is, I'm pretty willing to give people the benefit of the doubt. But I think we need to be careful about the things we say about women, and men, and people in general, and be conscious of the *&^% that underlies the things we think. Because, quite frankly, given the history of the way we (men and women alike) treat and think about women, more often than not it's not going to be entirely benign. (the same may well be true for the things we think about men) (really, the ways we construct gender suck)

Yes, there are women who can't shut up to save their f-ing lives, and those women may outnumber the men who can't shut up to save their f-ing lives. That's fine. Some of those people make me want to rip my (or their) hair out. Same with people who can't hold a conversation to save their lives. My "okay, let's tread carefully and think about what's going on" alarm signals start to go off, though, when something is cast as the primary reason some group of people can't find a mate, or the biggest problem with a group of people, etc. It's not necessarily a harbinger of misogyny, but it's something I'd want to look more carefully at.

Is all.

As for your first quote...we are attracted to strengths in the forms that we either don't have or find hard to cultivate...(ying and yang analogy)...what is so hard to figure out?

As for this second one minarets, there is one difference between your opinion and mine on this issue which actually does give my opinion a hell of a lot more validity than yours....I AM A MAN...you are not. So ya, I think I have a better understanding of men in comparison to you. (and yes, from what you write, you have no clue.)



Well if we're going to go down this path, I could just as easily say that you understand nothing about women. And you never could. Because you're a man. Doesn't make any sense though, does it?

Anyway, there's nothing wrong with wanting to marry a nice girl. But when your definition of being "feminine" or having "good morals" is mutually exclusive from being sexy, seductive, competitive, whatever, maybe you should reconsider your attitude.

Whatever though, I'm done trying to make you see how ridiculous and sexist you're being. Enjoy your outdated conception of what a woman has to be if she wants to get married while  us ambitious, independent, confident women go find a real man.

Ya, I'm sexist because I'm replused (like MOST men are), but obnoxious overbearing women like you...yes, you should go find a "real" man, one who likes to be given orders and told what to do, just like his mommy gave him...(I hope you enjoy your wife).

You're cute.
