Spent the day exploring and swimming in the river followed by a short hike with my beautiful pup.

If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.

what the fuck is this
i wasn’t aware we still lived in caves
are you seriously saying this is purely ‘biology’? i’m not sure if you were aware, but among other things natural selection is pretty fucking redundant now, and this argument is so outdated, can we stop being so fucking prehistoric,based on the assumption that it is a woman’s one and only purpose in life to reproduce
i’m angry

proof that feminists are not willing to refute any facts put before them.
Please let us know how what is said here is incorrect.

WELL, as I’ve taken the time to deconstruct this for my art project on women, I’ll gladly tell you my problems with it. I also don’t see any actual facts here although well done to the source maker for using language to make his argument seem more scientific and legitimate.
Now first and foremost, I agree that originally this is how the deal worked, particularly in aid of natural selection, which as I already mentioned is redundant these days. But this argument survives entirely on the assumption that a woman’s purpose in life is to reproduce. And that just isn’t the case any more, women do not have sex to have babies. In my opinion, “slut” is most commonly used among teens and young adults who have no biological purpose or intention for sex besides enjoyment, so I don’t think this question of paternity, even on a deep instinctual level, really has a place where nobody’s getting pregnant, similarly with the “biological prerogative”.
Secondly, I agree slightly more with the men’s column than the woman because the reasons are more social issues than biological. Men being expected to initiate the first move is a patriarchal expectation. Now, to “risk embarrassment and rejection”, it seems to me like a lot (not all) of men need to learn to handle rejection (an extreme example is Elliot Rodger and a few others) better when the female isn’t interested. And it’s not like women are immune to embarrassment and rejection. But either way, being embarrassed is not the end of the world, and this certainly isn’t a gender exclusive issue.
Thirdly, the last paragraph in the men’s column is a little ambiguous, but if it means that a lot of women go to one man because he has the most desirable traits, then of course that’s true, for both genders, but why should men be applauded and recognised for having desirable traits and women shamed? If it means that women want the man because other women want him, then that is not true and we are capable of forming our own opinions.
Now back to the women’s column, with “When a woman sleeps with many men it’s a strong indication that her ability to judge quality in mates is non-existent” (I’m assuming that the aforementioned consequences of the rest of that sentence are impaired children, which again doesn’t really matter when you’re not trying to conceive) One, without “many men” involved, why are girls still called sluts after one sexual encounter with one person? Two, it suggests that having bad judgement of partners is the unattractive quality here. Posing you an argument on the same biological level, I thought men were also supposed to pick good women with childbearing hips? But really though, an inebriated male at the party trying to get with every girl around hardly has good judgement. I mean there’s so many double standards in this argument, why are men allowed to have bad judgement but not women? Because it might fuck up the kid? Because that’s what 16 year-olds care about, isn’t it? Similarly, I’m shallow and stuck up if I only go for the ‘best’ men, but I’m a slut if I have terrible terrible judgement and don’t always choose men with the most optimal genes, right?
Partnered with the comment from the forum, “They complain about the sluts vs studs double standard, ignoring the fast that nearly every female can easily rack up hundreds of sexual partners (but don’t want to), whereas very, very men are capable of doing so and instead many men suffer long periods of involuntary celibacy.” (poor men) Correct me if I’m wrong but along with the “biological prerogative to be very choosy” this whole thing seems do be a bit of a backhanded compliment (i suppose?) wherein the source maker is saying that women can basically get whoever they want, but they’re socially wrong if they choose to abuse this. (so to speak and aside from all the biological fabrication)
I’d like to say that it is my prerogative as a woman and as a person to sleep with whoever I like. Both genders are capable of abusing* their desirable traits to have many partners, but only one gender is shamed for it. (*I don’t really want to call it abusing because it’s their choice, but from your point of view)
To conclude, this particular argument may have been true at one point and in most species (I don’t need to say that we’re too developed to compare ourselves to animals about this, do I?) but it does not justify the double standard by today’s measure where a woman’s purpose is life is no longer to reproduce. Thank you for taking the time to read this; I sincerely hope I don’t come across as aggressive and that you’ll respect my argument.
PS if anyone would like to add to this then feel free

Strip it down to the biological basis and sure, okay, it’s correct!! But we’ve live in an evolved society which means we can work against the biological “reason” of our life. I can sleep with as many men as I like and not get knocked up, tyvm. 
If you’re going to use this as an argument, you have to also be willing to condone murder, rape, and homophobia. To elaborate - Rape: Biologically speaking, great way for men to spread their genetic material and by-passing women’s reluctance for “casual reproduction” due to the higher obligatory commitment to the offspring. So… Are you arguing that rape is acceptable? If not, how can you argue that calling women who enjoy sex sluts? :) 
As a disclaimer - I in no way am encouraging rape/sexual abuse etc. Simply making a point.

Now back to the women’s column, with “When a woman sleeps with many men it’s a strong indication that her ability to judge quality in mates is non-existent” (I’m assuming that the aforementioned consequences of the rest of that sentence are impaired children, which again doesn’t really matter when you’re not trying to conceive) One, without “many men” involved, why are girls still called sluts after one sexual encounter with one person? Two, it suggests that having bad judgement of partners is the unattractive quality here. Posing you an argument on the same biological level, I thought men were also supposed to pick good women with childbearing hips? But really though, an inebriated male at the party trying to get with every girl around hardly has good judgement. I mean there’s so many double standards in this argument, why are men allowed to have bad judgement but not women? Because it might fuck up the kid? Because that’s what 16 year-olds care about, isn’t it? Similarly, I’m shallow and stuck up if I only go for the ‘best’ men, but I’m a slut if I have terrible terrible judgement and don’t always choose men with the most optimal genes, right?
Partnered with the comment from the forum, “They complain about the sluts vs studs double standard, ignoring the fast that nearly every female can easily rack up hundreds of sexual partners (but don’t want to), whereas very, very men are capable of doing so and instead many men suffer long periods of involuntary celibacy.” (poor men) Correct me if I’m wrong but along with the “biological prerogative to be very choosy” this whole thing seems do be a bit of a backhanded compliment (i suppose?) wherein the source maker is saying that women can basically get whoever they want, but they’re socially wrong if they choose to abuse this. (so to speak and aside from all the biological fabrication)
I’d like to say that it is my prerogative as a woman and as a person to sleep with whoever I like. Both genders are capable of abusing* their desirable traits to have many partners, but only one gender is shamed for it. (*I don’t really want to call it abusing because it’s their choice, but from your point of view)
To conclude, this particular argument may have been true at one point and in most species (I don’t need to say that we’re too developed to compare ourselves to animals about this, do I?) but it does not justify the double standard by today’s measure where a woman’s purpose is life is no longer to reproduce. Thank you for taking the time to read this; I sincerely hope I don’t come across as aggressive and that you’ll respect my argument.
PS if anyone would like to add to this then feel free

Strip it down to the biological basis and sure, okay, it’s correct!! But we’ve live in an evolved society which means we can work against the biological “reason” of our life. I can sleep with as many men as I like and not get knocked up, tyvm. 
If you’re going to use this as an argument, you have to also be willing to condone murder, rape, and homophobia.

what the fuck is this

i wasn’t aware we still lived in caves

are you seriously saying this is purely ‘biology’? i’m not sure if you were aware, but among other things natural selection is pretty fucking redundant now, and this argument is so outdated, can we stop being so fucking prehistoric,based on the assumption that it is a woman’s one and only purpose in life to reproduce

i’m angry

proof that feminists are not willing to refute any facts put before them.

Please let us know how what is said here is incorrect.

WELL, as I’ve taken the time to deconstruct this for my art project on women, I’ll gladly tell you my problems with it. I also don’t see any actual facts here although well done to the source maker for using language to make his argument seem more scientific and legitimate.

Now first and foremost, I agree that originally this is how the deal worked, particularly in aid of natural selection, which as I already mentioned is redundant these days. But this argument survives entirely on the assumption that a woman’s purpose in life is to reproduce. And that just isn’t the case any more, women do not have sex to have babies. In my opinion, “slut” is most commonly used among teens and young adults who have no biological purpose or intention for sex besides enjoyment, so I don’t think this question of paternity, even on a deep instinctual level, really has a place where nobody’s getting pregnant, similarly with the “biological prerogative”.

Secondly, I agree slightly more with the men’s column than the woman because the reasons are more social issues than biological. Men being expected to initiate the first move is a patriarchal expectation. Now, to “risk embarrassment and rejection”, it seems to me like a lot (not all) of men need to learn to handle rejection (an extreme example is Elliot Rodger and a few others) better when the female isn’t interested. And it’s not like women are immune to embarrassment and rejection. But either way, being embarrassed is not the end of the world, and this certainly isn’t a gender exclusive issue.

Thirdly, the last paragraph in the men’s column is a little ambiguous, but if it means that a lot of women go to one man because he has the most desirable traits, then of course that’s true, for both genders, but why should men be applauded and recognised for having desirable traits and women shamed?

GUYS YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW WONDERFUL THIS IS 
Parkinson’s is a degenerative disease and while it’s progress can be slowed down, it currently doesn’t have a cure. People suffering from Parkinson’s will experience a gradual loss of coordination and ability to perform even the most basic of every day tasks, including feeding themselves. 
This fucking spoon is HUGEfor them. Look at that gif of the man just trying to eat with the regular spoon and compare it to the liftware device. It’s NOT just a spoon, by the way, it comes with a fork as well, for example. 
I found the website for the project where you can purchase a spoon for someone you know/love and even possibly donate money to help someone out who can’t afford it themselves right: HERE.
At the very least, please spread this for all the people who have Parkinson’s or loved ones with Parkinson’s. 
You’ll help them take part of their life back. 

that’s cool
