Jun 8th 2010 5:25PM Like all discrimination. While I believe U make a valid point, the truth is u could walk into an interview fat, or black, gay, a little person or handicapped, Muslim, or Hindu and the employer could react the same way. So yeah on the books lots of things are illegal as far as bias in the work place but there are ways around everything. Nothing makes gray hair different from anything else. Hell and it's something frivolous or superfluous if u ask me and u have the option to change it where as some of the things I mentioned either u don't have that option or it would really mean something huge if u did change it. I probably may have had some of the feelings u did if in a gray hair age range but u also gotta remember it is a hair color, lots of people do go gray early. We dont see it be they cover it immediately. Like anything aesthetic I think we should be as close to who or what we are as possible and accentuate and take care of what we have. I like make up. It accents but it shouldn't be a mask. Coloring your hair can be a fun change but not something that masks your real color bc of shame or the fact that u never really got to like it. It's apart of what makes u, u. This isn't fully directed at your comment bc I understood the point u were making and why. But i feel many woman here are not getting the big picture. We shouldn't allow our society, nor contribute to our society making us hate or be ashamed who we are.
Jun 8th 2010 5:00PM it's really too bad u feel that way.
Jun 8th 2010 12:03AM Ppl's, most specifically guessers comments here are SO funny. Now, feeling slighted or criticized by this article they are making up so so many excuses for their actions. They're giving explanations for why it's a good thing to be a guesser/server/willing or eager participant and saying that they feel proud, even going so far as to point the finger at the askers and painting them in a negative light calling them self serving and entitled. I am not exactly an asker, or a guesser. I actually probably fall under both categories depending on who I'm talking to. Well actually I guess I'm a guesser because the article is about the work place at which i am definitely a guesser. LOLOL! I really understand both sides of this and find the asker to seems less convoluted and dishonest. The guesser doesn't wanna be in the wrong or penalized and ends up punishing themselves attempting to test the waters or lie to get out of something. LOL! I can't say i dont get it tho. One of the huge things I think ppl are forgetting is that while the askers are more likely to give a direct no when they don't want to do a task in the work place, it doesn't mean that's the only answer they ever give to things asked of them. They may rarely say no bc they may rarely have a problem doing something. But when they do they feel free to simply say no. I really don't think that's something negative. Maybe you shouldn't take such offense ppl.
Jun 7th 2010 11:32PM Yeah. I totally, totally, understand the urge to be subversive and indirect as opposed to direct because u don't want to be told no. I think tho (maybe not for u, but for MANY)it's less about not wanting to feel rejected and more about control. U don't want to be told no because u want ppl to in fact do what u ask. If u manipulate ppl by engaging them in a convo about how much they love Mr. Gyllenhaal then they look like they're in the wrong if they don't agree to accompany u to the new movie he's in. If they've just gone on and on with u in a Gyllenhaal love fest their no makes them seem like there is a problem with going with u specifically. So it's almost like a silent personal attack, unless they give u a reason (excuse) as to why they can't go, besides the assumed unspoken "I don't like you or find u special enough to go with etc.". Correction if that person is in fact a "guesser" as well (which I truly believe most are.)
I have now gotten to the point where I answer ppl that seem like guessers frankly bc I don't like the feeling of being manipulated. U're not going to just guilt me into whatever u want me to do. I don't like it. It feels like u question my intelligence or sometimes like u feel I don't have the balls to tell u no. LOL! Sometimes I know ppl don't know any other way to be and aren't trying to work u over. I can let it go with them especially if I don't know them well.
Jun 3rd 2010 4:04PM Most of these comments from the attempts at forward thinking to the obviously mentally challenged reinforce how much disdain I harbor for the public at large. So many of these point are half assed leaning way too far to one side or the other and so many others just point blank make me ashamed to be a human being. There is nothing wrong with patriotism but don't be a flaming ignoramus and to have no national pride at all as an American while steadily reaping the benefits afforded a citizen of this country is just raunchy. Finally it's sad that a snippet about how to learn a new language on a budget was turned into a back and forth about illegal aliens, what America was or was not built on, the business we do with foreign countries, etc. Completely unnecessary. We should all be ashamed.
May 24th 2010 3:26PM She got these things out of her ass or a small group (two of her buddies) of people. None of that mess makes real sense. The head wrap comment was just offensive. I wont get into race and culture because people never understand and swear you're sensitive (whatever).The red lip thing has been proven scientifically. That's why women even do that. It originated to emulate the reddening of the lips on the face (and else where) when sexually aroused. So yeah this was a fluff article a jack ass pulled out of her ass last minute. I would've totally respected that, (bc we've all done that before) if she hadn't made offensive and just backwards fabricated statements.
May 16th 2010 11:58PM It's funny the women here are so up in arms, dare I say offended about a 10 being considered plus sized too. No, it isn't a plus size ordinarily in this country, but a couple of years ago neither was a 12. Yes I too think it's sad that they are making the fat cut off tighter, but I can't help but feel like it's making people feel like it's cutting too close for them and they don't wanna be labeled. Plus sized means fat and "oh Christ be Jesus" if you get labeled along with the fat chicks. The world crumbles if you get lumped into a category that is outside of the mainstream. I can't help but feel some (not all) of you see the full figured distinction as an out casting from society. If that is the case maybe the plus sized system should be integrated into the mainstream "normal" sizing system. I think some of the comments make me feel there is a still a stigma attached to this area of the fashion world.
Apr 7th 2010 1:28PM Please she wish she could be so fortunate as to have that royal mess on her head compared to something as majestic and gorgeous as a lioness. LOL!!!!!!!!!!! She's a million dollar idiot or just one damaged individual. Her extensions don't help her look in the least bit.
Apr 1st 2010 7:53PM Men don't like women and neither do woman in some way shape or form is what i gather from the comments. Until people stop feeling that way nothing can change.
Apr 1st 2010 6:29PM Your Mother...and by your rant I'd be perfectly in accordance with you, saying so. She's probably got a lil black in her too... or has at some point.
