There's something pretty funny about a whiney sack of soggy potatoes talking about Bond and masculinity. Of course he's also a lesson in white asshole men getting 1001 chances considering the number of shows he's hosted and left or been canned on. He's basically hated wherever he goes and kinda slimes his way into and out of media jobs.

I found this which made me laugh,

Good god I could only watch 2 mins of that shite.

I like the new Doctor. Sou and I have started watching it again this season and we've been enjoying it.

I probably haven't seen more than about half a dozen episodes since the David Tennant run, so I can't say how good Matt Smith or Peter Capaldi were, but I like Jodie Whittaker so far.

My first The Doctor was David Tennant, so all others are measured against his run. A first season with a new The Doctor is always going to feel weird, for whatever reason. And it goes especially when it's coupled with a new show runner and new writers. Their first few episodes will feel like a little too much, then they'll get into the groove of whatever story (-ies) they want to tell and the character of this The Doctor will be formed. I'm p much over man-babbies crying about whatever man-babbies cry about nowadays. Let them wail and gnash their teeth and rend their grommets.

I never got into doctor who, mostly it wasn't on at the right times, so I'm seeing all of this from an outside prespective and um, have Doctor Who fans ever really watched Doctor Who? It's not like it's a serious and realistic show to begin with. I kinda think some people have some hardcore thick nostalgia glasses on if a woman doctor was when the show jumped the shark and couldn't be taken seriously anymore.

Something I might get lambasted for in the wrong audience: I wasn't that big a fan of Capaldi. Now, I think he's a fine actor and actually played the part well. But, I didn't much care for the stories his The Doctor was in. Not so much in an 'OMGOZOR DOGTOR WHO IS RUINT FOREVER' just "that was okay." But I find myself on the "that was just okay," opinion a lot lately, even things I might usually enjoy more.

So I saw this:

Nothing to add on either story; I'm interested in the cringy use of 'females' here.

I've read other posts on the use of homosexual versus gay, and have it on good authority that the term homosexual has its roots in scientific denotation and a history of use in a negative sense, especially homosexuality as a disorder. She prefers to be referred to as 'gay'. That's okay, might as well get used to it.

Star Trek understood in the 80s that using the term 'female' can be cringy as hell. It's a scientific term, but unlike homosexual, it doesn't strike me as rooted in some derogatory baggage.

So I'll do the term swapping game.

Quote:
by a panel of 5 male judges.
Doesn't feel weird.

Quote:
by a panel of 5 man judges.
huh, changes the context to 'judges of men'.

Quote:
by a panel of 5 woman judges.
I've heard before that this is a preferable use, but does this not also change the context?

Or maybe it's the context of "Oh hey look it's totally legit now, these two dudes are found innocent by five women! Totally legit!"

I've no conclusion.

I think female is fine as an adjective as long as it's relevant. It's using it as a noun* that's weird, especially when it's uneven, like "three men and two females."

* Unless it's an umbrella term for 'girls and women' like you'd use 'male' for 'boys and men.'

Paraphrasing dude on facebook,
"Why you believe them bitches?"
"If I was Brian Banks I would hate if some bitch ruined my life!"

You mean Brian Banks, the teenager who was accused of rape and then thrown in jail for a year because as a 17 year old he couldn't come up with $1 million in bail and pleaded guilty at the suggest of his lawyer because as a black man 5 years for a crime you didn't commit is better than 40 years when the jury sees he's black. That Brian Banks?

"Yeah, 100% that bitches fault. See what rape accusations can do!"
:mlpfacepalm:

He's working on checking all the boxes too, a nice combination of "I'm just asking questions" "Won't someone think of those poor defenseless men!" and long paragraph screeds at multiple women in the thread all with generic meme picture as his profile pic.

And then there's convicted rapist Brock Turner who because he was a aspiring athelete white guy spent less time than a jaywalker in prison. But, you know, it's bitches and false accusations.

Why some women fear the self-serve gas station - The Globe and Mail

Quote:
The first rule is straightforward: The self-service pumps are not Tinder, Grindr or any other kind of dating app. The other drivers are there for the same reason you are – to purchase gasoline. Do not hit on people at the gas pump. Just serve yourself some gas and get on with your day. Sadly, if you’re using the self-serve as your personal hook-up spot, you’re also using the grocery store, your place of employment and virtually every other place you go in similar fashion. This may be why everyone hates you.

Schick responds to Gillette's #MeToo ad by releasing misogynistic razor - The Beaverton

Quote:
“This product is 400% more likely to slice your face open than a regular razor, but you can take it because you’re not a pussy,” explained the three minute Schick Alpha Male Razor commercial. “It’s a razor for a man who refuses to be told what to do by a woman, whether she’s running for president or a doctor trying to stitch up his bleeding face.”
If you weren't aware of the latest threat to the paper thin skin that is toxic masculinity, this happened.



And the predictable happened. The rending of garments, the gnashing of teeth. The switching to other brands.* The lack of awareness that these sorts of ads, aside from to sell product, are like locks on doors that keep out the honest. They a reminder to good men to not be shit and to be an ally as needed.

*lol

That's right, ladies, what makes you female is that you are a sperm receptacle. :3

And "external anatomical characteristics". Wait, exactly which external features have those reproductive purposes?

I'm no anatomist but I'm pretty sure "providing eggs" is the job of the above-mentioned ovaries, and they are internal in the vast majority of, possibly all, ovary-having humans. And "receiving sperm" is the "job" of the egg in the uterus; again, quite commonly an internal anatomical feature. Correct me if I'm being too binary or over-generalising here.

I wonder if the authors of the bill possessed penises and testicles and were unable to think beyond them.

eta: Wait, that means no one is female in the terms defined by the bill, so it doesn't apply to anyone.
