“The women who have commented on this story on whether or not they're a feminist? Girl, if there were no feminists you wouldn't have the right to an opinion. Your 'place' would not be on the internet. It would be legal to your husband to abuse you if he didn't like what you said.
Now shut your traps and either get with it, or get back to whatever you think your 'job' is. I'm sick of hearing women whine about how they just can't deal with feminists.
You're not sick of feminists. You're sick of people telling you how to feel and what to do. You have the right to tell them to pipe down.
No one is telling you to become a mechanic, they're telling you that you can be a mechanic.
No one is forcing you to join the military, they're saying that you can if you want to.
No one is telling you that you have to live a life you hate. You can choose to live however you want, whether or not some bozo approves.
Always remember that that bozo can be you.”

“Totally agree. All I could think when I listened to Sarah Palin was, "if it weren't for feminism, you wouldn't even be able to vote, let alone run for office."”

“"No one is forcing you to join the military"
Sooner or later there'll be a draft again, and this time women WILL have to go. Thanks, feminists, for opening the doors to the armed forces and combat, so that the GOP MIC can put women and LGBT as human shields against 8th century cavemen from Talibanistan who have no respect for either. Way to go. It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no Texas idiot savant's blonde twin daughter.”
“First, I'd like to say I'm a pastor. That being said, the crucifixion probably looked more like Theon on Game of Thrones rather than all the pictures show you because that's the way the Romans did it. The modern version of the cross didn't exist until a few hundred years later. Perhaps these archaeologists should have brushed up on their theology.”

“Why would it matter what shape it was if this is only a small piece of it?”

“Don't agree with you, Pastor. The facts don't support it.Crosses in multiple forms (including the recognized one) existed for thousands of years. The Romans performed executions in a limitless variety of ways. They frequently enjoyed it as "sport". A "t" shaped cross was very plausible in light of the facts of the execution.”
“That is NOT a gen 1 pony. Freckles didn't come out until somewhere around 4th gen, when they started tilting the heads instead of just looking forward. There were only something like 5 ponies that were first gen. That neing said, I like everything about the doll. She looks like a punk rock alien. I would have chewed my arm off at 7 to get one.”

“Nope. That is a first Generation pony. It's Bowtie and was released in 1983, right after the original six.”

“Bowtie - the one in the picture with the freckles is from the second collection of my little ponies....which included applejack, two sitting ponies (Bubbles was one)and the very first unicorns and pegasus ponies like twilight and melody and firefly. the very first line included 6 who just looked straight ahead and were pretty monotone in their colors comparatively. But applejack and bowtie and glory and moondancer, et al, came out right on the heels of the first 6 (cotton candy, minty, butterscotch, blossom, bluebell, and peaches), so it was a pretty fast progression from those first ones to the rainbow-maned ones, the furry ones, the jewel-eyed and fairy ponies and the baby versions. But yeah, Bowtie was definitely in the second edition. My entire childhood allowance went to those things and I ended up with 73 of them at one point, haha. But the second edition happily coincided with my 7th birthday and first slumber party where I scored almost all of the second edition ponies except Twilight (one for each girl at the party ton "adopt" for the night!)
Also, I don't know about these freaky equestria dolls (but yeah i would have definitely wanted one back then) but friendship is magic is hilarious, smart, and totally geek girl feminist, so i'm wondering if the equestria thing is a rip off?”
“Considering these aren't military grade, there's pretty much zero proof these are going to be used in war. Unless that guy smuggles them some. And then gets arrested for non-approved weaponry and possible terrorist activity.
Also, the pork thing only works if you willingly deal with it. If you don't know or it's forced on you it doesn't break any religious laws. If this was real, all of those who were caught up in the tainted kosher meat scandal from a few years back would be rioting, but since it wasn't their fault, it does not count.”
“If it helps someone else put my records on a PDF and sling it around for all I care. Health is not a place for delicacy, period. The only reason this doctor is singled out is because she wrote a paragraph anecdotally. If she had phrased it 'Don't you hate it when...' you wouldn't hear a peep out of anyone. No privacy was breached and more than one person got the message that being late was not OK. Everyone has a right to be angry and a person that screws up their day.”

“When you deal with very private matters, as a doctor does,, you except them NOT to post about their job on facebook! I don't think thats asking too much! She should be fired!”
“I've been sent away from both business meetings and dinner parties because I was there on time and it was expected that people would be there a half hour later. It was expected and I was not looked upon favorably for it.It depends on what area of the country you live in. Where I live now, everyone is prompt, but back in my home state showing up on time is the equivalent of catching people off guard in order to point out their deficiencies. (At least I was never the clown that showed up 5 minutes early and sent across town to pick up coffee while they start the meeting and deliberately exclude you.)”

“Fascinating! May I ask which is your home state? Perhaps I should consider a move there :)”
