    [–] Tibetan woman elected student president in Canada, Chinese students enraged PurpleFlame8 1 points ago in worldnews

    Why would I bother to do that when I never claimed that a company acts like a single individual?

    [–] My husbands female friend won’t accept my apology. I don’t know what I did so wrong. PurpleFlame8 3 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Yeah some people have weird hang ups. I read a Dear Abby or something like that once. The lady who wrote in was upset that someone called her to thank her but did not send a thank you card. But people only sent thank you cards to begin with because they had no phones.

    [–] They can't find the neuroendocrine tumour PurpleFlame8 2 points ago in cancer

    Hopefully it will light up on the PET scan.

    [–] My husbands female friend won’t accept my apology. I don’t know what I did so wrong. PurpleFlame8 4 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    It doesn't matter if you use Facebook Messenger or text. What matters is that the person get's the message.

    Where did she ger the idea that you said you had a horrible time at her house? Was this entirely fabricated or was there a miscommunication between you and your husband and then your husband and Sam?

    [–] I'm a medic and a nurse completely dismissed my rape patient PurpleFlame8 3 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Please report this nurse to hospital administrators and file a complaint with JCHO.

    [–] A guy I was friends with randomly asked me if I was willing to hook up with him through text on Valentine’s Day. I’m so disgusted. PurpleFlame8 7 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    For a lot of guys, sex is like an itch they want to scratch. Most of my friends are guys. I'm sure a lot of them would like to have sex with me. Not because they are attracted to me or want to date me but because they want to have sex in general and, being a friend, they would probably think I am a safe person to have sex with.

    The answer though would be "no".

    [–] I’m pretty sure those are just stickers PurpleFlame8 2 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I think the same reason the cereal isle is filled with colorful boxes and sugary cereal. Years of compounding of trying to out do the competition, influencing consumers and meeting consumer preferences that arise from that.

    [–] Fuck you, I'm smart. PurpleFlame8 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Lots of shitty things aren't crimes. It doesn't mean we should put up with them.

    [–] I’m pretty sure those are just stickers PurpleFlame8 41 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I think you probably did her a favor.

    Kids grow up in a very gendered environment today, more so, I think, than when I was little.

    My little neice and nephew have very firm beliefs on what are girl things and what are boy things and they did not get this from family. They get this from the media, other children, toy isles, advertisements, and their general observations. My neice insisted that Star Wars is for boys because only the boys in her class like Star Wars. My nephew clearly likes some of his sister's toys but he thinks they are for girls and will decline if anyone offers to buy him one of his own and when my sister and I try to tell them that this gendering is just made up, and these things aren't really boy things or girl things, they act like we are the crazy ones because it conflicts with their observations.

    [–] Do you interrupt all prospective clients this much? PurpleFlame8 40 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Good for you! He has probably billed you as a bitch in his mind but you probably also cured him of his interrupting problem.

    [–] Fuck you, I'm smart. PurpleFlame8 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Oh no. This guy needs to be schooled. His bias is not benign. He is probably unaware that he has it and it needs to be pointed out to him.

    [–] Tibetan woman elected student president in Canada, Chinese students enraged PurpleFlame8 1 points ago in worldnews

    Yeah people break laws and don't always get caught. It does not mean they are not actively enforced. Most Chinese people are actually very law abiding.

    [–] A rather shocking news segment PurpleFlame8 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Some things are worth putting one's life on the line for.

    [–] I don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but... PurpleFlame8 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Most people think of hatred of women when they think of sexism, but hatred of women is merely one of many forms of sexism called misogyny. I am not saying the OP is a misogynist.

    But the OP is hindered in his interaction with women by preconceived notions based on their sex.

    If he can't have a conversation with either a man or a woman due to his social issues, then he needs to acknowledge that his issues aren't soley with women and he needs to take a more global approach to addressing his issues and stop thinking about them as issues he has with women.

    If he can have conversations with men but not women...why is it?

    Does he only think of women as potential mates and only have conversations with women the intention of obtaining a mate? We have greater roles in society, and possibly also the OP's life than that and it would help him to recognize that.

    There are some things to take in to consideration when socializing with the opposite sex but if you have an ASD then chances are you need to first build your generalize socialization skills before you can get to the level where those things come in to significant play.

    Learn how to interact with the general public, which women are a part of, not seperate from.

    [–] My mothers boyfriend just told a rape joke and in doing so just highlighted that, yes, rape culture exists and it is a problem. PurpleFlame8 1 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in TwoXChromosomes

    If a middle eastern or muslim person were going around telling 9/11 jokes to Americans, yes they would be suspected of sympathizing with terrorists, particularly if the joke trivialized or mimimized the loss of life.

    [–] Hooked up with a Boy and Now He Doesn't Want to Date Me PurpleFlame8 4 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    He was clear that he was only interested in hook ups with you. Respect his boundaries and back off.

    If you want a relationship go find a guy who also wants a relationship. There are plenty of them.

    That you thought he wanted a relationship when he said no, just because he had an intimate conversation with you is like a guy thinking a woman who says no to sex still wants sex just because she kissed him.

    No is no. Back off.

    [–] Fuck you, I'm smart. PurpleFlame8 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    You know what. You should bring this issue up with your math/science teachers to make them aware that these biases exist, because it's never too early to address them, and also see if you can give a speech on it.

    And put that fucker in his place.

    [–] Could you date a gynaecologist? PurpleFlame8 3 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    If I liked him enough. My only reservation would be the fact that they have to be on call so often for their pregnant patients.

    I think you guys need a massive women's march.
