Xoxohth should explode in jealousy and anger within the hour. LOL!!

Excellent job! Congrats!!!!

I don't think they're funny. Everything they do or say makes me cringe. Why oh why did Kerry Washington take that role?

Absolutely not, but I certainly would not have had multiple babies with someone I thought was triflin or skanky.  Even if you consider one time a mistake, how do you justify the others?

Well, if it's free, why turn it down??

because it is not free.

If more people understood this we wouldn't have half the problems we have today.

so guys, i went to a firm event last night and even though i had a really good time--i did feel a little out of place with my afro puff...just a random thought. i didn't feel weird in interviews last year though--so maybe it was just my own insecurity?

Could have been your own insecurity... however when I wear my hair natural (pulled back tightly into a bun but clearly nappy) at some firm events I notice that people stare at it and act very formal (nervous?) around me. Other times when I put a hot comb through my hair and wear a straight bob or a roller-set style then I don't get the stares or feel the same "tension" with other folks. It doesn't really make me upset. So few black women wear their hair natural that it will take the professional world a while to get used to seeing it. I say don't worry about it and keep wearing your hair the way you feel most comfortable. (As long as it's not a purple, green and red fro)

not sure.  why Boies Schiller?

(I feel stupid about asking now that I've gotten off my azz and done the research I should have done in the first place.)

I want to do litigation. It's a fast-growing firm that seems to be fine with their associates being individuals as long as they do their work extremely well. They let you wear jeans to the office. The salary is insane and they have offices all over Florida. :)

General question to anyone who might know. What class rank/grades from a Top 10 will get Boies Schiller? No Journal but great work experience. And does anyone know someone who works there or spent a summer there?

Vanessa - You may have tried to push up on Vanessa. Chances are, you work with Vanessa or perhaps go to school with her. Vanessa is typically gainfully employed and attractive, not a dime, but definitely a 7 or 8.  However, the endless stream of homeless men or old men that approach Vanessa on the street (she will tell you about each and every one that does approach her and how she shot them down) have her thinking she is nothing less than a 50 cent piece. Vanessa is none other than Black Helen of Troy. To compound matters, when Vanessa was 18, she hooked up with Gerald, and Gerald did her dirty as hell. Now Vanessa is convinced men exist only to serve her. Vanessa will always turn you down. Vanessa would rather sit at home on a Friday night and watch Soul Food 1,000 times than go out on a date with you. If Vanessa deigns to be seen in public with you, you will hold every bag, pay for every meal, and hold each and every door. If you hold the door for Vanessa, do not expect Vanessa to return the favor, even if the next door is 3 feet away. Vanessa is just your like mother. She's never satisfied. Vanessa is just like your father. Too cold. Vanessa is often superficial, splurging her paycheck on expensive designer clothes, shoes and bags. Ironically, Vanessa goes to church each and every Sunday. You wonder if Vanessa has room in her heart for Jesus. Don't not try to argue with Vanessa: she will merely raise her voice until you are forced to submit. Vanessa has never actually dated anyone; that would be too much like compromising, and Vanessa does not compromise. You suspect Vanessa is a lesbian, until you realize she is as ruthlessly judgmental of women as Tiffany. Then you suspect Vanessa is waiting on an ultra-fine investment banker or pro athlete to sweep her off her feet and be her footstool. No, Vanessa is asexual and loves no-one, not even Vanessa. Later, Vanessa goes on to be Aunt Vanessa, your relative that looks remarkably good for her age, yet lives alone.

Ouch! That hit way too close to home.
Good work.  :D

4. Isn't it rewarding foolishness and laziness to sympathize with a man who doesn't have the gumption to bring his own condoms? Heck, considering how many men on this board "know" of women who supposedly will sabotage condoms/scoop sperm out of used ones, one might argue that the risk to a man's future posed by allowing someone else to provide/discard of the condoms should be known to anyone with gumption. So how is personal irresponsibility viable grounds on which a man should be allowed to absolve himself of responsibility for the life he created?

This is exactly what I've been trying to point out...nicely done (as well as your entire post).

By the same logic then, shouldn't any women with gumption know that condoms aren't perfect and that most men that are "willy nilly" spreading their seed around aren't the trappable type?  So how is personal irresponsibility viable grounds on which a woman should be allowed to absolve herself of responsiblity for the life she created?

Just seems like a double standard.  A woman maliciously impregnates herself against her man's will and it's the man's fault.  A man accidentally impregnates a woman (equipment/condom malfunction) and his fault again?  BS.

I don't think these women are not irresponsible either -- actually, I think they're stupid. BUT, having been a teenager once (and I know some of these women are older and should know better) I vaguely remember what it's like to want to believe everything a guys says because you like him and you see fireworks every time you're with him, blah blah blah. Some women, I think, get pregnant on purpose because they think it will have a fairy tale ending while the guy may just want to get laid and he'll say anything to get her to give it up. I think it's unfortunate that women fall for the lines, but the fact is they do. The blame goes both ways.

I have little sympathy for the women who get knocked up after a one-night stand. However, once the baby's here somebody's gotta take care of it. And I think the best people to do that are the people who brought into the world whether they wanted it or not.

So there are many women are trying to *trap* men into becoming unwilling fathers? That's some crazy stuff since a lot of these guys have such a horrible track record of actually sticking around and supporting their kids. You'd think that women would recognize that from the high rate of single mothers in some communities. I mean, judging from the article most of the guys mentioned don't seem worthy of "trapping." But that's just me.

And, what do we say about the men who get "trapped" once, and then get trapped again. And again. And again? Is it that they can't resist these "traps" women set for them or are they just refusing to take responsibility for their own behavior?

If a man chooses to keep on spreading his seed willy nilly (or keeps allowing these crafty women to trap him) then maybe deep down inside he really wants to remain jobless, hopeless and on the margins of society?
