Chatter / Re: Rosetta scientis in trouble for sexist shirt

This thread was started in order to talk about both, no?

I was under the impression it was to discuss the shitstorm that ensued from this man's shirt, rather than sexism in science as a whole. Nevertheless, both are valid subjects.

I don't see it as a celebration of women either.  I see it as cheesecake that caters to a certain kind of sexual fetish.

 Because it is possible to show women as both powerful and sexy, if you do it right.  But the pictures on that shirt are primarily sexy, not powerful.  The only 'power' shown by the women on that shirt is the power to get men horny, if you'll exclude the crudity of my statement.  And that isn't really any sort of power at all.

Agreed.

, and rape the women.

Remember when I said, above, I was lazy? I meant that.

Couldn't the women just rape me? I'd let them.

Now, if it had pictures like, oh...



Then yeah, I might be able to buy the 'celebration' argument.  Because it is possible to show women as both powerful and sexy, if you do it right.  But the pictures on that shirt are primarily sexy, not powerful.  The only 'power' shown by the women on that shirt is the power to get men horny, if you'll exclude the crudity of my statement.  And that isn't really any sort of power at all.

Chatter / TCM Is Back on DISH!
« Last post by Nam on Today at 01:04:53 PM »
Woohoo! They don't have the programming all the way in yet but still...I am so happy[1]. Before the dispute from 1900-1979 I had, probably 150+ movies recorded monthly in those years from TCM, afterward and currently only 70[2]. From 1980-2014 I currently have 102 which is so unlike me. It's not that I don't like contemporary films, I just like Classics better.

Now, hopefully the CBS dispute will be worked out because I watch 5 shows on CBS and one show on the WB.

 2. from those years, only about 15 are from TCM before it was removed

When you eliminate malice and negligence from the equation, the small risk posed by gun ownership becomes extremely remote.

My 6 year old will never find my gun hidden in my night stand
My children know I have guns and will not find them by accident
My children know the cardinal rules of guns, A gun is always loaded, Never point a gun at something you don't want to kill, know your backstop, guns are not toys.
If my kids showed violent or mentally disturbed tendencies I will completely remove their access to the guns
My wife is not the killing type and neither am I  (I am as confident of this as I can be given that humans can surprise you)

Seeming Epidemic has the ability to remove malice and negligence from all equations and other people I don’t see why everyone has an argument. I also don’t see why Epidemic doesn’t use this X-man power to make the world a better place.

I don’t understand the defense of guns. Epidemic likes them and knows they are dangerous and that is all great and wonderful. He is a responsible gun owner who goes about gun safety as best as he can for himself and his family. And that is great and wonderful as well.
I applaud you Epidemic for taking whatever steps you can to limit an accident or some other fatal event in your home. And for admitting that guns are a danger. I do honestly see you as a responsible gun owner.  But you are freaking delusional if you think you can control everyone and everything around you to the point that ALL and ANY danger is no longer present. It is very similar to those who feel they have been chosen and blessed by god because they took certain steps.

My main point is you have done well so far keeping your family safe while collecting your chosen hobby. But you sound complacent to me. The very fact that you feel certain things cannot happen, that have happened to others in the past is asking for something to happen.

Also why do people defend guns this way? Sure talking about zombies or the end of the world and a your plans is fun, but not a couple thousand dollars' worth of fun.
I love guitars. I collect them because I love to play them. Why can't many gun owners just say that they collect guns because they like to shoot them. Instead they are made out to be a super survival tool that everyone should have. Why is that?
