Topic: Off-topic / What is Your Approach to the Opposite Sex?

I’m just awkward. And I say things that I think are funny and they usually aren’t, so there’s a lot of awkward silences, the real winners are those that just laugh anyways.

Topic: Off-topic / Which among the 5 senses would you prefer to lose?

Taste or smell, although they are connected so losing one would most likely result in losing the other in some way or hindering it. I like seeing the world I live in, and hearing it, and being able to touch things, so I’m not sure if I’d be able to lose one of those. But if I HAD to lose one of those three it would be hearing, I already know ASL so it wouldn’t be that difficult for me, except I’d really miss the sound of music and laughter.

I deeply apologize for letting internalized misogyny taint my otherwise brilliant mind. You can evidently nominate human beings of any gender and sexuality. I also wish to add that individuals of any nationality, body type, religious confession, economic situation and social status can be nominated. Succintly the only discernment that imports is intelligence.

Good. In that case, I vote for Luke.

Well, I would clean my apartment, clean out things on my phone & my laptop and write a goodbye letter. I don’t need people knowing the naughty things I do or have done.

That’s nearly irrelevant

It really isn’t though, overweight people are extremely buoyant, so have fun drowning~

I’m not THAT buoyant.

Topic: Off-topic / Worst first date/introduction/meeting/interview.

My worst first date was probably this guy who seemed normal at first, we were having a great conversation, and all that stuff, until he was like, “Dani, I need to tell you something serious.” And I was just like, “Okay?” And he goes, “I’m a samurai ninja master.” Then he did some weird move and I was like okay…and I didn’t want to be obvious and leave right away so I said I was going to the bathroom (like 5 minutes later) and I never came back. I feel like an asshole, but it was weird.

Introduction…I can’t say I ever had one that was bad. Oh wait, that’s a lie. I worked for my university a while ago, and I was pretty high up, and in charge of a lot of people, and we had a banquet with like a thousand people there and I had to speak, and the person introducing me forgot my name.

Meeting – when aren’t meetings bad?

Interview – I had one where I made like a small joke, and I awkwardly laughed and all of them just stared at me. I didn’t get the job…

Topic: Off-topic / That's sexist

There’s that line being drawn between OT and SD again. Looks like the hate between these two forums isn’t over.

I’m not saying he couldn’t post it here. I just am not sure what kind of responses he would expect from a place like this. I’m not saying people in OT aren’t capable of thoughtful responses, as some clearly have posted before and they are, but people in SD go to that forum to purposely participate in discussions like this. I do agree with CJK though and think that OP can post wherever since this is a different group of people with different experiences and I feel like are a bit more “open” to others points of views when it comes to things like this instead of SD where they always seemingly (SEEMINGLY) have to be right in their viewpoints.

Topic: Off-topic / That's sexist

OP, I’d just like to point out that STATISTICALLY women are much more likely to get raped/sexually assaulted than a man is to have that happen. Yes, it is possible, but violence (non-sexual) is much more likely to happen to you than to a woman. I can provide links and sources describing the statistics. In college, that goes up even more to every one in five women who will be raped. We live in a society (I’m talking more from an American experience) that is filled with rape culture and promotes women as sexual objects. A woman could not realistically walk down the street with her top off like a man could without being demeaned in some way.

Also, you’re taking away from trans* people who do actually identify with different genders than those of which they were socially assigned when they were born. That being said, the rest of what you are describing is just common courtesy, something my parents taught me. I always hold the door for everyone, I offer to pay on a date, and I could care less what questions people ask me, but others might, it has nothing to do with being a woman, but rather being respectful.

TL;DR: This isn’t even the place to have this discussion, SD is better and everyone is now going to think I’m a huge femi-nazi for what I just wrote. \o/ which is okay, I already self-describe as a new-age feminist. Come at me, bro.

Edit: Also, I don’t want you to think I’m attacking your beliefs or experiences at all or undermining them in ANY way, I want you to feel open to express them. I can see where you’re coming from, and I can see how it might be frustrating to feel like it is expected of you as someone who identifies as a male to treat women in a certain way, but women are people too, and we should be treated with respect. Yes, society does say to treat us a “certain way” but society also tells you to see me as nothing but a sexual object too, so society can go fuck itself. I’d just do your own thing honestly and be nice and respectful with everyone, which it already sounds like you do. :)

Topic: Off-topic / What would you say is a "survivable" income?

Depends on where you live, your occupation, and how many people are in your family. As well as personal characteristics and demographics, because unfortunately we still live in a society where people of color and women get paid less than someone who is white or a man and age and other health factors play a HUGE role in it too. That being said, for me personally, as someone who is in my early 20’s my spending habits are around 700 (USD) a month, not including my rent that (IF I hadn’t bought the place) would be roughly 900-1200 a month, also cable/internet is around 80/month, food is around 200/month, traveling (since I live in the city) is around 120/month, electric and other utilities are around 180/month…as for insurance I technically don’t have any, I’m still young enough to be covered under my parents but I know for my medications I take if I didn’t have insurance it would be roughly 400 a month and for doctor appointments around 600 a month. Auto insurance costs me about 220 a month. Other random bills/repairs as needed is about a 150 a month. That being said: my minimum per month is $3,850 (USD) so for a year it is $46,200, which for one person is extremely reasonable. However, I’m a college student so I’m living WELL above my means, and I should cut back to basically a lot of stuff and just live in a box, and then I would be living within my means. But if we were to divide all of that up by a 40 hour work week – lets assume 50 weeks out of the year (maybe 2 weeks of paid vacation) then I would have to make at least $23.10 an hour. As a teacher, I already looked and starting in my area it is $12 an hour which means I would have to essentially cut EVERYTHING in half that I’m currently doing. And I have approximately 3 years to figure out how to do that before the government kicks me off my parents insurance and/or get married and get a job that gives me insurance.

TL;DR: I like many Americans am living WELL above my means and I’m fucked to put it simply.

Edit: Basically the minimum wage needs to get raised or the cost of living needs to meet people’s necessities and other things. The gap between those two is too large.
