    [–] If you could switch two things what would you switch? PM_UR_SECRET_RECIPE 3 points ago in AskReddit

    If the men in my life are any indication, women would still need to take maternity leave to care for both father and baby, and we'd never hear the end of it.

    [–] What are things WAY more expensive than they should be? PM_UR_SECRET_RECIPE 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Breakfast cereal. I love it because it's like puppy chow for humans. I eat it for snacks and for breakfast. The markup is insane when you consider that most cereals are made from subsidized grains, sugar, and tiny amounts of enrichment minerals.

    [–] When is the best situation for you to send a dick pic? PM_UR_SECRET_RECIPE 2 points ago in AskReddit

    If it was requested by someone you've known for more than a few days.

    [–] What was the worst pain you ever had? PM_UR_SECRET_RECIPE 3 points ago in AskReddit

    So far, my worst pains have been emotional. The feeling when a loved one seems to have forgotten about me is probably the worst.

    [–] Apparently Homelessness is only a Problem if you are a Woman. PM_UR_SECRET_RECIPE 4 points ago in MensRights

    I understand what you're saying, but I don't agree. The emergency housing situation for men right now is inadequate. Many existing services are geared toward women for historical reasons, and a lot of them can't/won't change to accommodate men. Increasing the amount of services available to men, and making men's access to services easier does not require that we dismantle existing services that overwhelmingly target the female homeless. What do we need to accomplish this? Funding, facilities, organizations. You can try to expand what exists, but when that doesn't work (like in the case of women's-only domestic violence shelters), you build something new.

    I think we can be more pragmatic than that. What do we need? More beds in shelters that allow men, more mens-only shelters, clearer pathways for men to get help when they need it. That doesn't mean women's only shelters and women-centric assistance programs should stop existing. It's possible to lobby/agitate for new services and more funding.

    I'm here if you want to clarify and help me understand your point of view.

    [–] What was the last "rough patch" in your relationship and how did you work through it? PM_UR_SECRET_RECIPE 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Honestly, it sounds like you're punishing yourself and putting her on a pedestal in hindsight. Nobody is flawless; nobody is "the one." You'll love again. It will take time to feel confident and satisfied in yourself again, but it will happen.

    It's almost like this graphic was part of an article whose context we're missing in pursuit of a circlejerk.

    "My group has it worse, so no other groups are allowed to self-advocate." It's not a zero sum game.

    [–] Spider man dance line PM_UR_SECRET_RECIPE 1 points ago in gifs

    A lot of the hotter female cosplayers do that as their job, though. When they go out for a beer at the end of the day it isn't with the dudes they meet at a con. The baristas at starbucks don't want to be your friend either.

    [–] Amy Schumers sad instagram post PM_UR_SECRET_RECIPE 1 points ago in sadcringe

    Re-read my post. I said nothing about Louie making penis jokes.

    I'm not here to defend Amy's most recent special. I thought it was pretty solidly unfunny and crude. I have watched every episode of Louie's tv show and most of his standup. He has plenty of sexual content. Maybe he isn't fixated on a single body part (I would argue that Amy's jokes about drinking and sluttiness are in service of the character she portrays the same way Louie's comments about his body and aging are in service of the character he portrays), but I stand by the claim that a woman doing his material would get derided for being too sexual or too fixated on "women's humor." They're different people, so it's a hard comparison to make. I'm not sure how poop jokes and drinking jokes make your argument about Amy being too focused on her vagina, but that's fine.

    It's just interesting to me because I never see this logic applied to male comics, even when 90% of their jokes are about things that relate to their experiences as men. Is Louis CK "throwing his sex in our faces" when he talks about how hard it is revealing his body to women at his age? Or the many scenes in his show about jacking off alone? If a woman made the same jokes, it would be branded as a joke about her vagina. I think a lot of these are really about the human condition, but when a woman speaks about it, some people get really bothered. If Amy is challenging that, then I'm all for it.

    Or, if you think we should start calling them "male comics", I guess that accomplishes the same end.

    It's like comparing ice to water and saying both can be freezing cold. Starts to lose its meaning.

    [–] Amy Schumers sad instagram post PM_UR_SECRET_RECIPE -4 points ago in sadcringe

    Charlie Sheen is cringey. This is so mild.

    [–] Amy Schumers sad instagram post PM_UR_SECRET_RECIPE 13 points ago in sadcringe

    Most of Louis CK's jokes are about being a man and a father. Jim Gaffigan too. Gendered comedy doesn't belong to women alone.
