    I`ve never pierced my ears (or anything else for that matter) and plan to never do so.

    28. We can fully assess a person just by looking at their shoes.

    I`m like a guy on this one. I don`t know a thing about shoes. Give me hiking boots and I`m good to go!

    Actually for women, in the end, that`s a POSITIVE thing.

    #1 reason for the females` list: We can give birth to new life (i.e. have babies).

    FOR REAL! I do that all the time! In my freshman French class I had a crush on guy just because of his shoes! When I actually saw his face I was like "Who`s that?" And I realized the only thing I paid attention to was his awesome shoes. I`m vain.

    You seem pretty bitter about this post my dear :) Do I sense jealousy? Probably not, I`ll stop teasing you :)

    But I`m a huge shoe freak...I`ve got about..40 pairs kicking around....and I do tend to look at people`s feet. What would you think about a business man in a three piece suit wearing ratty sneakers? It`s just part of an image :D

    I don`t know why people get offended with these things..I read the guys one and laugh because "it`s true" I can never open sauce jars, I need my dad or brother to do it :O...but I read the girl ones too and laugh...because a girl CAN cry to get out of a ticket...a guy would look weird. We don`t have to...most don`t...but we CAN.

    Someone tell me in a PM what kable wrote, I`m dying to know.

    I would have gone for the neurological benefits to being female, for example the larger corpus callosum that enables women to apply more thought to any given problem than men (women have a broader capacity for thought than men). Then again, men are overall physically stronger than women so if a woman were to contradict some man`s logic, he could thrash her within inches of her life and make up for it. Bwa ha ha.

    Yeah, because our manly organs would be GONE if that was the case, OR there`d be something severely wrong with us. As far as I`m concerned, periods are a normal part of female life.

    Anyway, you could tell that blog article was posted by a guy due to all the racy pictures.

    Everyone is a little materialistic but there are varying degrees.

    If you`re obsessed with shoes and judge people by what they wear, you probably lack a hell of a lot of depth / have a myspace blog about pizza / religiously watch Sex in the City.

    In which case, you can totally blow me.

    Yes, Bekll, I`m sure all men are envious of women for having to bleed a week out of every month just to support the little bugger regardless if women want a child or not, then have to lug around a living parasite in their bodies for the better part of 9 months (time spent without alcohol, smoking, drugs, or sex ), fully knowing, anticipating, and fearing the God-awful pain of childbirth. Oh damn, don`t I wish I could experience that...

    Besides, males already have life in them. In fact, they produce it (ask the Roman Catholic Church). Impregnate yourself and I`ll be most impressed.

    Actually, Overmann, there are males out there who wish they could carry a child. It must be an amazing experience to know you have life in you and you are going to bring it out into the world.

    Children are special... not little "buggers"... that`s a cruel way of viewing them. And most women do not care about the pain in childbirth. My mother said my sister and I are worth any amount of pain. That`s why every time I`m sick and feel horrible, she says she would take that sickness from me and be sick herself if she could to spare me the pain.

    Parent-child relationships are loving. Children are usually not seen as burdens and pests. If they were... the human population would be in danger of extinction.

    I didn`t say no man was envious, Bekll, I was being sarcastic and said all men. There is, after all, such a thing as "womb envy".

    "It must be an amazing experience to know you have life in you and you are going to bring it out into the world."

    I have sperm in my testes... no, I don`t really feel altogether special.

    "Children are special... not little "buggers"... that`s a cruel way of viewing them. And most women do not care about the pain in childbirth."

    You mean they`re not buggers after all? ...I see I have a bone to pick with my parents. And most women don`t care about the pain in childbirth? I`ll believe that as soon as most women don`t ask for anesthetics.

    Deny it if you wish, but the fetus is in fact a parasite - taking all and giving nothing inherently in return.

    Overmann,
    "I have sperm in my testes... no, I don`t really feel altogether special."

    Sperm aren`t fetuses yet...

    "And most women don`t care about the pain in childbirth?"

    If they did... they wouldn`t go through with the child-birthing process now would they?
    Having children is more important than the pain.

    "Deny it if you wish, but the fetus is in fact a parasite"

    I NEVER denied this... in fact, I`m well aware that fetuses are naturally depedent on the woman who is carrying them which in turn makes them parasites.

    I`m in a college Contemporary Morals Problems class and we`ve been talking about abortion for most of the classes. I know pretty much every argument for, against, w/e on it.

    "I have borderline personality disorder and exhibit some antisocial tendencies; you tell me."

    From that information you`re not a sociopath. Just have little compassion...

    I`m just glad I don`t have to bleed blood out of my a>ss every 30 days. I`m also glad that i don`t have to c>rap out like a living football to have a kid. And Bekl, though women may say that the pain was worth having a kid, that doesn`t mean it didn`t hurt like he>ll.

    I`m not trying to be sexist, I just don`t know how to put this into good words.

    "I NEVER denied this... in fact, I`m well aware that fetuses are naturally depedent on the woman who is carrying them which in turn makes them parasites."

    Indeed. Just know that I feel I`m justified in calling them "buggers".

    "Sperm aren`t fetuses yet..."

    No, but sperm is the physical root to life. Having sperm, I know I have the potential to progenerate life. Do I feel special? Not particularly, as most every human on the face of the earth shares this capacity.

    "If they did... they wouldn`t go through with the child-birthing process now would they?"

    There`s a difference between not caring about the pain and saying it was worth it in the aftermath. I say all the time that apathy is misunderstood, and indeed it is.

    I won`t say empathy is for the weak, as that`s a misconception. I will say, however, that apathy is equally as stong, and that it is ambivalence between these two that is weakness. I just prefer the absolute negative direction.

    I`ll rephrase: Apathy is misunderstood by most people, now including Bekll.

    I was only refuting your previous statement, dear. All women care (or should care, in my opinion) about the pain of childbirth; but know that there`s a difference between not caring about the pain, and saying that the pain was worthwhile in the end.

    For whom it may concern: I do not misunderstand apathy.

    I did not mention about women not caring about the pain from childbirth. But that the ones wanting children willingly go through it FOR the children . That`s the way life is.

    I`m not ignorant.

    ^ That`s all right.

    In my mother`s case, she FELT the pain but her joy of having us overrid the pain. Meaning she ignored it.

    Everyone cares about pain. But the joy of bringing in a new life to the world can`t be forgotten or ignored just because of the pain involved.

    That`s exactly what I said, Bekll. I think perhaps that was your opinion all along and that the particular post I quoted allowed room for ambiguity.

    ...I take issue with your statement "I`m not ignorant," though. It takes a *lot* for someone to be able to say that, and I wonder what particular experiences afford you that status? I`m only curious.

    No, this is more what giving berth is like.

    "AHHH! OH MY GOD! HOLY CR*P WHY THE F*CK DID I EVER GO THROUGH WITH THIS! AHHHH!" Go through that for about 30mins or so. Then after the child is born she`s like, "It was worth it." There is no way to ignore that kind of pain... just wait until you have kids.

    On a related note, I don`t "argue" to "win".

    Overmann,

    I agree. NO one can claim complete knowledge. I am ignorant in that I don`t know everything. But I`m not ignorant in the traditional sense that I don`t know what I`m talking about.

    I have a saying that the more we learn, the more we realize we have to learn.

    I didn`t say I`m NEVER ignorant. Just that I`m not on this issue.

    I don`t speak in extremes. As in "a mother ALWAYS ignores her pain because she loves her children".

    Was that orginally put in there? No. Then it`s easy to gather that I don`t COMPLETELY believe that she`s ignoring the pain.

    Not confusing. Look for, or the lack of, key words.

    Bekll, the reason why I got confused was because you said only "I`m not ignorant." This is an extreme, honestly, because it left no implication of a limit or a relation to the subject matter.

    "Then you may stop communicating with me. Off you go now."

    It is your choice to communicate with me, Bekll, as such communication requires mutual input. And as far as why I argue, you misunderstand, but that my correcting this misuderstanding would influence why indeed I argue. I`ll likely carry on until you lose interest.

    Then perhaps you should have specified in the original post "I am not ignorant of...", Bekll. Unaltered, it seemed to me to indicate universality.

    Going back through your posts, however, I found a contradiction:

    "And most women do not care about the pain in childbirth."

    "I did not mention about women not caring about the pain from childbirth."

    I`m not being spiteful, but rather am providing a reason why I posted what I did.

    Enigman, I don`t know if it`s exactly the wisest thing to willfully compare yourself to me on IAB, heh. I have a bit of a... reputation, you see. Welcome, all the same.

    It has to be said, The whole Overmann/Bekll thing has been the most entertaining thing on IAB for months. But Bekll, my original post that sparked this whole thing off (about periods) was actually a joke. For the record, I think this is about 60/40 in Overmanns favour. Keep it up, people!

    "`And most women do not care about the pain in childbirth` - meaning their joy of their child overrides the pain."

    No, that`s not what that means. Again, misconceptions about apathy begin to show. They may see the pain as inconsequential in the greater scheme of things, but I`d bet nearly all women care (worry about, fear; attribute some sort of emotion towards) about the pain. I`ve yet to meet a woman stoic before or during labor.

    "If you were a female perhaps you`d understand. Oh well... your loss."

    I don`t need to be female to understand the meaning of apathy.

    Well, I could say quite a bit more, but I don`t feel like stating my extensive opinions on this topic, so I`ll just sort this whole thing out in one statement: Everyone sucks ass. There, at least I`m happy with that. It may not be true, but it`s a good generalization that allows people to decide for themselves whether or not it`s true, for them at least.
