What I meant by robots was everybody being the same and not having any interesting differences.

Robot humour. Jokes the computer programme "found funny":

Mother: "My, you’ve been working in the garden a lot this summer."
Boy: "I have to because teacher told me to weed a lot."

Property broker: "I tell you this new house has no flaws at all."
Buyer: "Then what do you walk on?"

Why it gets the joke: It realises that "weed" makes sense in the context of "working in the garden" but has no place in the same sentence as the words "teacher told me". Likewise with "flaws" and what the property buyer wants to walk on. Substituting in "read" and "floors" irons this out – allowing the computer to identify a play on words.

A joke the software did not "find funny":

Patient: "Doctor, doctor, I swallowed a bone."
Doctor: "Are you choking?"
Patient: "No, I really did!"

Why it doesn’t get it: It is perfectly possible that someone might go to the doctor if he or she were choking. The lack of incongruity means the computer is unable to identify the exchange as a joke.

Why do men think that it is a right to judge women's bodies and then tell them about it?
Because women (some) want that kind of attention.

Some women (and I've met very few) may like it, but that doesn't give you permission to do it to all women. You might want to acquaint yourself with the concept of consent.

There is so much wrong with that idea that I don't even know where to start.

BTW the women I've met who crave it frequently have very low self esteem and many come from dysfunctional families, but that is a separate issue.

I'll leave you to ponder this, at what percentage of women who like it, does it become frequent enough to be a stereotype and thus acted upon as universal?

A lot of women get the "fat" thing wrong .

Nothing wrong with a woman having some love handles or a fuller figure . personally I don't like women to skinny .

So the only time you might mention she is putting on a bit to much beef is if it's causing a health problem , however it is a bit annoying when they whinge a bit about not finding a dress there size or get to self conscious to go to the beach .

but as for being the perfect body most guys don't care that much realy unless you are a M.C.P or can't get out the car without help or need a crane or something .

Except, from personal experience, if your wife asks "Does this make me look fat?" :)


The "F" word . you mention that word and your asking for a whole lot of trouble let alone your partner asking you Clyde . Your still married Yes ! so how do you handle that question ?

Just say "Of course not - Beautiful"

I honestly think that what women want doesn't come into this at all. Men didn't start doing it to please women. They do it to show their authority and ownership over women. Just because some women think its a compliment, it doesn't mean it is. Especially as a lot of the comments turn negative very quickly if the women do not respond in a way the men want.

Just your negativity towards males, in general.

I am offended. But believe all opinions should be shown.

Considering you were defending Boko Haram in another thread just recently, I don't really care what you think any more.

...and now you have allied yourself with men who cat call women, and again, if that is the sort of male you are, I don't care what you think.

My negativity is towards males who do certain things. If you are offended, then that says far more about you than it does about me.

She has her unique attitudes towards males.

So?

Yup...trot out the old "you must hate men" argument. How freaking dull and unoriginal, I'd say I expected better, but I really didn't.



Feminists aren't 'man-haters' – we just don't like men who are sexist

Sooo..if you are a man who thinks I hate you, perhaps its time to examine whether you are sexist or not?

Your opinion is different from mine.

I do find your opinion, and silly name calling, to be very, very dull.

I believe I am correct, and you are wrong.

So?

Clyde, I'm curious. I've just had a look at your profile and your writing is very clear and comprehensible. I don't understand why you have such a different style when talking to any of us in this forum.

Do you know why?

In a needed response to your post Sarge...

Just two (or more) Peas in a Pod.

You guys/gals with your silly, unthinking, must call names, aren't We Superior, Ideology are, in fact, totally boring.

Will you, or your Cousins in name calling - Religious Fanatics - understand? Never.

Just my opinion, as an Atheist, to both Religion and Ideology.

Wondering if a need for Ideology, both Left and Right. Is just a Primitive need, of some, to 'Believe'.

:) :) :)
