  • Re: "Women Lose power as they age and become more radical / Men become more conservative"

    In general...

    Women get more radical as they age because they lose power
    while men tend to gain power as they age and become more conservative.

    How do you respond to this general sentiment?


    are you referring to politics? power dynamics between men and women?

    and what do you mean by radical ?

    i'm only 29, but I feel more empowered than I have ever been.... i have the money and time to do things i dreamed about doing when i was 19

    I'm also more in tune with my body and wiser....even more empathetic

    i have access to a greater echelon of men

    maybe once I turn 35, 40 it'll be a different story

    i can see how a woman who was overly dependent on a man to get what she wants may have some trouble, struggle as she ages

  • Re: Protesters Call for Boycott of Missha Beauty Supply Store

    I hate when people protest shit like this. It's probably wrong, but is a shopowner wrestling with someone who tried to steal from him worth this kinda response?

    Sometimes it seems like some of these protesters believe criminals deserve to pick their own reaction to the crimes they commit. And let's be real, if that was a black owned business, they would not be protesting this.

    You hate when an attack of a woman results in black people organizing and uniting against a common enemy to decide to no longer patronize their racist establishments?

    Is there a history of racism or are you just projecting? If you got more info, cool, share it. I don't know if you've ever seen how asians handle asian thieves, but I have. They do the same damn thing. Not everybody in the world is on some "treat a criminal nicely" type shit.

    Again, if this was a black owner in NC doing that to a black woman, would people in Chicago be boycotting? Would you be promoting this reaction? If you say you would, I'll take your word for it and we can agree to disagree. I personally don't believe holding a person down when that person attempts to steal from you is all that crazy. It might be wrong, but not worth protesting over.


    not as if it matters, but the store owner has handed over no proof that the woman was shop lifting

    so let's not concede just yet, that she was....if i'm wrong correct me

    and having walked into many of asian run beauty supply stores, i can tell you a lot of the clerks are often rude ....and some treat you like criminals soon as you walk in for no reason....could it be that i am blk, maybe...wouldn't be surprised if he jumped the gun

    that said, whether of not this man is racist, he handled the situation very poorly... dude literally kicked her and than wrestled her to the ground after this woman even offered to let him check her bag

    regardless of the race he was i'd take issue with it

    so if the community wants to rally behind this woman, good. the store could have a history of mistreating their customers for all we know

    its crazy to me anyone would try to justify the actions of this man or mock a protest

  • Re: Get Out (2017)

    I only noticed the cotton when Chris plugged his ears. What else did I miss?

    you didn't necessarily miss anything

    he got the cotton from the couch, had he not been able to plug his ears he would've been paralyzed and gone back to the sunken place once the video played

    just funny how cotton saved the day given our history picking cotton
