07/30/2002 Archived Entry: "Darn Feminists..."

My first normal entry in a while. Aa~... brings back memories.... ^_^

Today was an... interesting day in english class, to say the least. We were going over some of Kate Chopin's stories. She kinda likes to write about women independence and sometimes empowerment and all that stuff. So yah... a battle of the sexes kinda broke out. -_-; Ay~... I'm just glad that there weren't any male chauvinistic pigs in my class. Unfortunatley, we had some raging feminists. -_- Personally, I don't have a problem with women who want to fight to gain power.... It's just that... well... if they're overally zealous, they get really annoying because they like to argue against everything. They had the nerve to argue about whether males are stronger physically. -_- I don't know about you, but arguing against biological fact is rather futile to me. At one point they asked a guy whether he would take the traditional role of a woman in a marriage: the person who cooks, cleans, and takes care of the youngin's. He replied that he so~ would do it. He doesn't have to work and he gets to stay in his boxers all day. ^_^ I applauded that response because heck, that's what I was thinking too. Although personally, I would feel guilty to have my wife doing all the bread-earning (and well... I wouldn't be walking around in boxers ^_^;). Ah yah... then the conversation picked up even more steam when one of those raging feminists said that women are smarter. I was waiting for that. You know that in a battle of the sexes, the women just have to argue that they're smarter. Oh boy... there was quite a bit of discussion on that topic. I won't go into any detail because I'm sure all of you've already heard all the arguments. So instead, I'll give you my take on the argument. Now I'm not saying that the argument that "women are smarter" is wrong, but I just don't think that women should be saying it so matter-of-factly. I agree that on average, women are smarter than men. I've been around for a while and i've noticed how utterly stupid most guys can be. So I believe that the average woman is smarter than the average man. However, I believe that the most intelligent people are male. Just take a look at the facts: most certified geniuses are kinda... well... male. Some girls may argue that not until recently have women really received a good education and I suppose that is a valid arguement, but I cite another fact: most contemporary scientific discoveries, theories, etc. are still made by men. If women were anywhere near half as smart as these raging feminists make them out to be, don't you think there'd be more female genuises or something? Now if there are any raging feminists reading this right now, please don't pounce on me. I'm merely drawing a conclusion from evidence. It is purely an objective observation. Please don't be commenting and calling me a male chauvinistic pig. I'm sick and tired of this whole battle of the sexes crap. -_-

Oh yah! I forgot to mention in my last post why I put this layout up! Well... I was kinda getting bored with the Asuka one, but that's not the main reason. Version 9 just looked way too angsty. My log is supposed to be a reflection of my thoughts and moods. I'm not exactly feeling angsty right now. Rather, I'm rather mellow and indifferent (I'm sure you folks have noticed that I'm indifferent a lot). Thus, I made a layout to convey my mood.

Heck, making this layout has given me the urge to play Xenogears again. I've seriously been considering playing Xenogears over again every year. Well... i've already done it two years in a row.... ^_^; I think I might just do that. I'll call it the "Xenogears Annual!" Anyone want in? I know there's plenty of huge Xenogears fans out there. We can have some kind of group or something. ^_^

Hey folks, I want to assemble a pirate crew! I need crew members... and a name for that matter. ^_^; If you're interested, tell me. You might as well throw in suggestions for name too. ^_^; As for positions, I call captain (hey, I am kinda starting this thing...)! ^_^ If you want to join, you can take just about anything else. Suggestions: navigator, cook, sharpshooter, doctor, etc.

Which Star Ocean 2 ~ Blue Sphere character are you?
~{ r.a.i.n.f.a.l.l. }~

Hmph... I'm nowhere near as perky as Precis, but at least that description isn't too far off. And I sure do like machinery. ^_^ I don't go into "hyper mode" though. ^_^;

Which Kanon girl are you?

I never really thought about it, but hey, that's a pretty apt assement right there. After consideration, I am a lot like Nayuki....

Thanks everyone for the very nice layout comments. ^_^

Riku:
Agh! There's so~ many things I missed while I was in my non-social phase. -_-

I just want to say that I like your layouts. Not just the current one, but the Kyou one too. Yah, the one that was up for a few days. ^_^; Some nice work you did. *pat pat*

Hey, you're off to China soon, eh? That would be great if it was a nice vacation, but it doesn't seem like it will be.... You're being forced to teach english and write a market analysis? Now forcing you to teach english is bad enough, but writing a market analysis is tons worse. How the heck do they expect you to do that? I've taken high school econ and I couldn't write a market analysis if my life depended on it! That's absurd! Bah! Parents.... I wish you luck because apparently you'll need it. *pat pat some more*

Oh yah! No you may not worship me.... -_-

Saga:
Check your e-mail. ^_^

You passed your permit test? Woo! I knew you could do it. That's my imouto. *pat pat* ^_^ Now see... it wasn't that hard....

You're using Greymatter now, eh? Welcome to my world. You're now one of us! One of us... one of us.... ^_^ It has a pretty harsh learning curve, but it seems that you've already got it down. Once again, that's my imouto. *pat pat* ^_^ I'm sure you'll love it. I know I do.

Danny:
Hey, thanks for the kind compliments.

You have quite the... interesting... activities with your friends. Hog tying... boxing... slapping.... ^_^;


Now time to start Xenogears.... ^_^

Battle of the Sexes. Those are somewhat fun, yet annoying, ne? Men can do this, women can do that, blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda. lol. Hey, I wanna be on the captain's crew! umm...I guess a sharpshooter or something. :P

Women and men are equal in everyway, I hate the battle of the sexes too, Tsubasa-kun -_-, women excel in things men don't and men are the same way, but that doesn't mean either gender can't do these things. Men can be the homely type, and take care of the children, and the women can go out and earn money, but its the other way around just because it suits us better don't you think? But I don't know, I haven't gone through any of the phases my parents have gone through, so I really can't talk much more on the subject ^^;

Changing layouts to reflect your moods is something every blogger does right? ^^, I know I did it and I got a whole mouthful coming from everyone about it too e_e;. Again, you did an awesome job! *thumbs up*

Can I be the cook on your crew? XD;;

Whoo, I'm the first comment-----er. Um, yeah, I've gotta tell you, even tho I'm a girl, I really can't understand the whole raging feminist thing. The only mental difference between men and women is that each gender uses a different *part* of their brain, not a different capacity. Women can be strong if they want to, but why make a big deal out of it? Women all ready have the pity of the world and every possible unalienable right, so why bitch about it, no pun intended?
