“It's a sad state of affairs that some people can be so hateful about another person's body. The worst part is, they'll attribute their hatred to a genuine concern about the individual's well-being, so they feel justified in their attitudes.
Quit judging others and worry about your own life.”
“Just like the GOP to throw money at corporations and steal it from workers (current and displaced). How about de-incentivizing the offshoring of labor ? That'll do much more for the jobless than taking benefits away from them.”
“To borrow a line from Avenue Q...
"You. Have. No. Idea."
Try growing up with a sister, or marrying, and tell me that women don't get a raw deal. You're blinded by your own privilege.”

“Dude, what are you talking about? Women and men are different, some of those differences favor men, others favor women.
Certainfate is right. Under the law, women have all the rights of men and then some (e.g. family law. Name me one legal right that men have that women don't have and I'll give you a gazillion dollars.) Corporate and academic policy still tries to give women a "hand up." And the media also toes the PC line.
So where exactly is this systemic oppression and denial of US women in 2013?”

“No! I grew-up with five sisters and I've been married for 38-years, so I'll say it again . . . its "laughable".”

“"Blinded by your own privilege." I like that. Perhaps we all are in some area/regard. Thanks for the thought.”
“If you've ever worked in the restaurant industry (or even watched the news recently), you'd know that Christians have a bad reputation among servers. There's nothing wrong with showing that faith and generosity are not mutually exclusive.”

“so going on a PAID PR campaign is how you fix this??”
“I enjoyed the show for the first 8 or 9 seasons. It started getting lazy around season 10 (how many time travel episodes do we need ?), and then it just seemed to devolve into "Let's animate this cool sequence and make filler to go around it."”

“So who goes with Stewie on their "road trips" now..the new dog. This show isn't for everyone, I'm still a fan of it.”
“There's a difference between trash talk and harassment. You don't see a dude getting all kind of nasty remarks just for being identified as a male. Of all the female gamers I know, not a single one will ever use voice for that reason. I think it's kind of sad.”
“Diversifying the menu isn't going to help. Olive Garden has poor quality food, and their CEO came out in a big way saying that he would rather cut employees' hours than give them access to insurance. A burger isn't the solution here.”

“Seasons 52 is also owned by Darden and is awesome. Yes a bit pricey but very good quality food. This CEO is not the only employer that is cutting hours and not providing insurance. Agreed…not a good thing but it is all about politics and money.”
“Didn't ace reading comprehension, eh ? "Wasn't planning to get the Xbone to begin with." Xbox One has disappointing exclusives, the console itself is more expensive, XBL membership costs more than PS+, and don't forget about the mandatory inclusion of Kinect.
Microsoft has lots of bad stances, and this latest one is another nail in the coffin.”
“My guess is that YOU have never played on Xbox Live with women. Any time a female voice comes on, there is the inevitable outpouring of sexist and vulgar comments. It's pretty sad, and I can guarantee it pushes them away from online gaming.”

“Well ...I guess if you can't " man up" or " woman up" stay off. See you want a different standard for men and women. If any person can't take the abuse then don't play. Becuase men get harrased if they don't reach deep....woman can do the same.”
“Wow. Wasn't planning to get the Xbone to begin with, but this solidifies my decision to go with Sony this generation. As one-half of a gamer couple, with many female (and male) gamer friends, I find their attitude pretty out of touch with reality.
And why on Earth would Microsoft go out of its way to alienate a significant percentage of the buying public ? Bad idea all around.”

“This solidified your decision? Wow people are so easily offended by non-offensive things.”

“So rather than choose a system based on it's graphics, availability of games or quality, you are going to let some stupid email sent out by a marketing company and listed on an a progressive/feminist website make the decision for your.
You aren't worthy of an x-box - try to find a Coleco Telestar on eBay.”

“I am sure that wasn't there intent. Watch PCU with an open mind sometime, then maybe you will get what this letter is about.”
“I think it would be cool to see in action. But if they're only making it available within 10 miles of a fulfillment center, what's the point ? Might as well just give people a pickup option at the warehouse.”
