Good and bad feminism - a girl's critique

Feminism is good when educated people discuss it because they know how to draw reasonable conclusions. However, uneducated feminists are occasionally wound up and let loose on the world without any idea of reasonable limits to feminism. They hurt feminism in the long run. I know one who acts morally superior. There is a difference between rightfully blaming feminism and an unwillingness to admit your own faults. If I did not live with her, I would keep a mile away from her at all times. She is mean and angry all the time. I just wish that she could get an education and realize that this is not fluff. There are logical underpinnings to feminism.

Is America doing okay?

I want less sensationalism from CNN, Fox, and Vice News. Instead, I want a dead-pan reporter presenting facts without political interpretation. I want good old fashioned reporting. Until then, who knows what is real anymore?

Three years ago

I arrived in Vancouver with some cash and a couple of bags. Now I rent a great one bedroom, paid off 22K in debt, and am almost done furnishing the place. It meant that I had to work weird hours and couldn't always go out. But the fact that I can now keep all of my paycheck and everything in my place is paid off is a great feeling.

I can't stand

my boss. She's always complaining about something and if I ever give my opinion or say anything that doesn't sound like I think her life is more difficult than everyone else's, she'll contradict me and just keep repeating her problems until I smile and agree with everything she says. Even when I do agree with her, I can't say anything that turns the conversation away from her and how problems at work affect her personally before she interrupts to talk about herself again, meanwhile I can't do my job because she won't stop monopolizing my time. It's exhausting working with her, I wish she'd stop being so self absorbed and treat me like a human with actual thoughts.

Told you so

My husband will get a cold or the flu and complain that he is sick, but never has any visible symptoms. I always think he’s just trying to get out of going into work or doing housework. He got sick last week and I didn’t believe him or have any sympathy for him. Well, I’ve now caught his cold - and damn it - I am so sick! I think I’ll have to take his word for it in the future when he says he’s sick.

Today...

... I was waiting in line somewhere and this woman turns to me and says she's a psychic and that she wants me to pick a tarot card on her phone, so I do. I got one that says someone I used to communicate with wants me to get in touch. I wish I believed in that sort of thing, but I don't, so I won't get in touch with anyone.

Movies

If all you talk about is movies, I interpret this as you lacking real life experiences. You come across as a shut-in. Throwing yourself out there in the world is more valuable than what Adam Sandler said. Life is not meant to be lived in your living room, despite the name.

The Professor

I'm scared to tell my friends and family that Jordan Peterson has helped change my life.

A Bunch of Garbage

Am I the only one who is annoyed that Vancouver is considering taxing or banning coffee cups, it now costs .10 cents a piece for a plastic bag at most grocery stores and people can be fined for putting recycling in their home garbage... ...YET... Anyone can go into any grocery/drug/big box store and buy a case of Pampers with no tax, ban or fine? Is is not just as obvious that they are going straight to the landfill? A breeder friend of mine recently told me her baby uses 200+ diapers a month. The most take-out coffees I'ver ever consumed in a month is probably 10-15. Am I missing something?! *** Full disclosure: I do not have kids and do not know if I ever will. Truth be told I would probably use disposable diapers if I did. I just don't really get how throw away coffee cups and plastic bags are such a problem but plastic throw diapers are not. Maybe I'm just feeling bitchy because I forgot my reusable bags at the grocery store the other day and got charged .40 cents extra.

I quit my job

I have no obligations. I'm just wandering about the earth trying to kill time and hoping you'll suddenly see me as a good decision. See me as a good decision?

Don't even feel it

B2ten spends millions to create an Olympic athlete. #poorpeoplecouldusemillionstoo.

Easy Street

Downtown Vancouver is so magnificent with the high-rise buildings beautifully lit up at nighttime. Y'know. Just for the fun of it. Wouldn't it be great to sponsor the education of a young person aging out of foster care? Y'know. Help them out. Just for the fun of it.

I SAW YOU
