  • Men don’t want to work cooperatively with us, they want to dominate us, and part of that is constantly trying to say we’re weak.  So we’ve got to show strength, because we’ve got to fight for our place of equality, men won’t just hand it to us.  They’re going to fight us every step of the way, so right now we’re in a position where we’ve got to r…[Read more]

  • I’m constantly criticized by men I know for how I approach my job at work.

    I’ll gladly help other coworkers with things, especially getting something set up that makes their jobs easier.  I want everyone in my group to succeed.  I’ve had male “friends” tell me this is a weakness of mine, how I’m being taken advantage of by other people, and t…[Read more]

  • Oh dear, I’m so sorry your irritation has come back Kitty!  Are you able to get in to see a doctor today, so she can look at it when it’s at its worst?

    I hope you’re able to figure out what’s causing it and find a workable solution 🙁 (no pun intended!)

  • I’m so sorry you’re going through this, I see things very, very differently from Cassandra.  But please know what I’m going to say is based on my personal life experiences (which are different than hers), and from what you’re writing here and what I’m sensing.

    I feel like he’s trying to control you and manipulate you.  He doesn’t seem to r…[Read more]

    I’d love to go to Africa too Kitty .. I’d prefer their jungles over South America’s, I don’t know why but the Amazon terrifies me.

    I’ve watched Disney’s “Tarzan” too often, and how I wish I could be Jane Porter (I’d especially like to spend all my time in Africa barefoot, lol)

  • Mamie replied to the topic Are Women the Stronger Sex? in the forum General Chat 1 month ago

    Men think they’re stronger, because they view things like stubbornness, cruelty, selfishness, greed, and willingness to commit violence as strengths.

    When a man wants something, he takes it .. even if he has to kill you to get it.  Because a woman is willing to sacrifice her own desires for peace and harmony, he views her as “weak.”  Men look o…[Read more]

    I don’t have enough space either Jen, but I’m not as wise as you are … I still buy anyway, and then I’m stuck with all this clutter until I eventually purge myself of all the junk I’ve collected, lol.

  • Mamie replied to the topic To Keep the Grey Cells Active in the forum General Chat 1 month ago

    Cute!

  • I’m sure we all do, lol.  I’m thinking of this topic more as a way to sort of laugh at ourselves for things we notice we just can’t seem to help.

    For me lately, it’s sandals shopping.

    I’ll be online looking for something I need, and I’ll see an advertisement or a recommendation that shows some cute open-toe shoes, and I just can’t seem to help…[Read more]

    Thanks Jen – I do agree they probably mean it as a compliment, but I don’t often feel that way.  When I’ve spent some time with my makeup and such, and I feel like I look good, and then someone tells me “You’d look better if … ” I find it’s just deflating, you know what I mean?  They don’t seem to understand how when I look in a mirror, I see e…[Read more]

  • Q. Why did God make man before woman?
    A. You need a rough draft before creating your masterpiece.

    Q. How does a man change a light bulb?
    A. He holds it in place and waits for the world to revolve around him.

    Q. Why do only 10% of men make it to heaven?
    A. Because otherwise it’d be hell.

    Q. What’s the difference between government bonds and…[Read more]

  • Wow that was incredibly interesting, thank you so much for sharing that with us!

    A lot of what she wrote really spoke to me, and exactly like she says, I thought of many of those things before in some way.  I’ve long felt men hate women because deep down they know we’re better than they are, and I’ve often said to myself “the only thing men are…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic Feeling Trapped in the forum General Chat 1 month, 1 week ago

    I’ve only been to the United States and Canada, but I’ve covered a lot of territory!  I’ve been up and down the east coast here, and to several provinces.  My favorite place I’ve been to is the Rocky Mountains in Alberta, and I’m going back there for my honeymoon next month.

    I’d love to visit Ireland some day!  If I could go to only one new co…[Read more]

  • Hi Julia, welcome from the Midwest!  My name is Mary, I’m a work-from-home banker.  Way to go with your nursing program!  My DF’s an RN, and yes we absolutely need more good nurses, lol!

    What’re your favorite Disney movies?  Are you looking forward to the new Lion King?

    Which princess do you most closely feel you relate to?  And which would you…[Read more]

  • I’m worried for you about how you view your body image .. you’ve mentioned you had your body changed to make yourself more attractive, and a lot of your posts (like above) seem to suggest you base a lot of your self worth on how boys react to you, and I just hope you feel healthy and happy with yourself without needing that kind of validation.

  • Mamie replied to the topic Feeling Trapped in the forum General Chat 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    I’m so sorry Kitty, I hope you’re feeling at least a bit better and were able to go back to work.  I hope also you’re not at risk for getting into trouble, I felt almost like reading your first paragraph you’re giving a sense that you might be fired for not going in.  Please let us know everything’s going okay for you?  My thoughts will be with yo…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic Friendship advice in the forum General Chat 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    I feel it really has a lot to do with what you fought with your family member about.  If it’s something really serious where she hurt you deeply, like for example if she sabotaged your situation at work or she slept with your husband or something, then I feel in your place I’d be disappointed if my friend didn’t show support for me, and I’d be…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic advice on a new diet in the forum Health & Diet 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    I rarely eat sweets, and I no longer eat any type of meat (I’ve found plenty of protein alternatives) I find fresh fruit can really satisfy my junk food cravings.  James likes going to McDonalds, and I’ve found their Southwest Salad is amazing!  I get it with the belsamic dressing, so it’s low calorie and very good 🙂

  • OMG YES!  His voice … I love him narrating in The Big Lebowski.

    I wish I was more like all of you and happier with my appearance, and could stop comparing myself to perfect stars.

  • Mamie replied to the topic Recent Photos in the forum General Chat 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Selfie from earlier today … got a new camera! I had an important video conference call for work, I was trying to look my best.

    How do you feel when someone says “You look better without makeup”?

    Myself, I feel unhappy … I spent a lot of time on my appearance and I thought I looked good until someone tells me that.
