Honestly, the terms "masculine" and "feminine" are really annoying. Why should one thing be considered more masculine than another thing? Labels in general are just the worst.  

Omg thank you. Gender stereotypes and such really make me mad. I'm a girl and i like wearing ties and doing "masculine" things with boys. .. So what!?!

IKR!!! I have four best friends and three are boys, even though I am a girl. Everyone thinks it's so weird but it's not. In elementary school you could be friends with anyone you wanted but now if you're friends with someone of the opposite gender everyone thinks you're dating. It's the worst.

By the way, I agree about ties. I don't wear them because they make me feel like I'm suffocating (my gosh darn claustrophobia) but they look fantastic (especially on Beatles)

I now have a new computer-related pet peeve. My computer has decided that in addition to its inability to properly type spaces, it would like to torture me by adjusting the brightness of its own accord. It'll get really bright, then fade to really dim, then get bright again.

I bought this computer in September and already it's driving me insane! I thought this kind of thing was supposed to happen after a few years, not a few months. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Rrrrrgh it just got super bright again as I typed this. Why why does my computer hate me

About the rap: as a high school student I relate. It's an epidemic. My friends and I call it crap music instead of rap music-- which is still inaccurate, because sorry, but rap doesn't count as music.

About the keyboard: Wanna trade? a-hard-days-night-george-10

About the purple: Obviously those boys have no idea what they are talking about. Purple is a truly magnificent color, and George would be proud of you for wearing it. I know I am. Don't take anything those idiots say seriously: their comments don't change who you are unless you let them. Stay strong! (Also, see the above conversation about gender stereotypes. a-hard-days-night-george-10)

And to stay on topic: I find it highly irritating that the Beatlemojis don't exist outside the forum. I need a Winking George Emoji!

Me: No.

Mine does it too. But I don't mind. There is a setting somewhere where you can turn it off. Do a little research and you should work it out, unless it's a different system.

When a man wears purple or pink, it implies that he's effeminate and or gay. That's not how it should be nor is it my reaction but that's how the world works.

Life is too short to worry about if a man is wearing "feminine".

Salmon is a colour that suits many men.

Oh my gosh yes. Tall people pet peeve: when people use you like a crane. 

I mean it's cool, but people make an unnecessarily huge deal about it (especially when you're a girl.) Also I hit my head a lot. (Rangehoods are the bane of my existence.) And it's hard to find pants that are long enough that aren't made for people who are like five times as big as I am around the waist.

but yeah otherwise it's cool...

Japan announcing they are about to begin commercial whaling again, and are leaving the International Whaling Commission.

A***holes. Not necessary.

Boycott Japanese products because they're a***holes who hunt whales. Show them there's a cost.

The problem is, the Australian government could stop them as they pass down our east coast to get to Antarctica, but that's WAY too much effort for our pathetic excuse for a government.

Hehehe I'm 5'9.5"ish and for the first time ever, I feel short (compared to you giants), but yep, I relate to everything you've been saying.

I personally don't mind being a crane too much. (My dad is super tall -- I take after him -- and my mum is super short, so we fetch bottles from high cabinets for her all. The. Time.)

Also I hit my head a lot. (Rangehoods are the bane of my existence.)

Well, for me it's more shirtsleeves than pants -- part of the reason I've started wearing slightly large shirts is because the sleeves actually go down to my wrists for the first time in my memory. a-hard-days-night-john-6

I'm going to be of the unpopular opinion here and say that i'm perfectly fine with Japan resuming whaling. Whales are animals too, just like cows, pigs, chicken, and fish, so they're fair game IMO. Plus, just one whale could feed a starving village and give them lots of oil.

BTW Silly Girl, no need to feel short. All of us talking about how tall we are are men and due to sexual dimorphism, men are naturally taller than women.

^I would have no problem with them hunting for whales either (so long as they weren't endangered species) BUT there's very little demand for whale meat. 0.5% of total meat sold in Japan is whale meat, and it's very difficult to 'humanely kill' (as far as killing something is humane) whales. The main method of killing is stick a harpoon in it and hope it bleeds out quickly enough. They are normally highly-stressed and in a lot of pain before they are killed, it is not the kindest death you could give an animal.

 

I don't eat meat and I still think creatures like seals and deer have to be killed, even though they are adorable. If you don't cull them, they have no natural predators and just eat everything that's surrounding them.
