Women who know their place

#1 Post by t.a.j. » 15 Sep 2010 10:30

Found on another forum:
Women Who Know Their Place

Barbara Walters, of 20/20, did a story on gender roles in Kabul, Afghanistan, several years before the Afghan conflict. She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands. Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem to, and are happy to, maintain the old custom.

Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, 'Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?'

The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said, 'Land Mines.'

Women? What Women?

#16 Post by Hansi Smurf » 18 Sep 2010 23:32

In my High School Graduating Class, there are 14 Type A Males (males over 6'2").

Yet, there is only ONE! Type A female among us!!! :|

God: my traditional community of Transcona, should be burned to the ground, and all of the baby-boomers, slain! Eugenicists they are, enemies, they remain!

Peace, Love & Happiness, indeed. :cry:

Bi-Polar Again!

#17 Post by Hansi Smurf » 19 Sep 2010 22:28

Yeah, my own, mate-for-life, is only 5'4" tall, and I'm only 6'3", on the dot!

I haven't seen my mate in over 12 years, now, and after such a long time, I am certain that I'd love to date a University-level, Woman's Basketball Player, the same stature and ethnicity as me, rather than some puny daughter of paedophiles and lesbians!

The most scandolous parts of MY ancestry, are my own Nana, and one of my Great-Grandpa's, whom were both illegitimate children, and the aforementioned grandma, from Neath, Wales, was both a teenage runaway, and a war-bride! As well, 2 really ancient American ancestors of mine, married as first cousins, too, traditionally a relative no-no.

Staying true to a womb that's been absent for over 12, long, years, unlike say, Karl Marx's wife, whom stood beside him, while he labored, as a writing socio-economic philosopher, staying true seems, biologically-speaking, unhealthy!

Plus, if I had of believed in American TV, instead of the womb in question, what with me not molesting children, but instead, mating them amongst their very own age-group/peer-group, once they are full-grown, regardless of economy; certainly I am no eugenicist, certainly the lack of homosexuality and paedophilia amongst my family, makes her family and mine, biologically untogether?

Yet, alone in my room, any thoughts of my already concieved of, eight children, automatically places me into a pleasurable, family-based reverie, involving the Lost Mate! I'd hate to say that I was crazy, I'd hate to say that the brain/backbone, ISN'T, an accurate tele-empathic sensory-organ of some kind, mainly cuz I, and the Global Military Theocracy, would both agree, that it IS, an accurate tele-empathic sensory organ of some kind (see, Adolph Hitler's, WWI Trench war-fare experience). Thus, I'd really like to hope, that the Lost Mate would be placed into a Faraday Cage, their own brain-backbone based sensory-organ, removed from the Communion!

Technically, I wish BLIND GUARDIAN, and the ENTIRE Hollywood Movie Star Colony, and everything affiliated with such congenital failures, would all be placed inside Faraday Cages, and be all locked away, outside of the Imagination, forever!

Remember this, PIGS! We told you their was no such thing as ESP, so that you would be able to be measured as good or evil, in what you were falsely led to believe was an unsurveilled imagination!

Get used to the REX ACT 84' Detention Centres, Obama, Psychiatrists, and all the rest of you Created Biological Weapons! But who knows, maybe the detention centres aren't what Man, has in mind? Perhaps blood-letting, instead, wot? :mrgreen:


(sigh... it just hurts so much to even concieve of letting lil' Boo Boo go! :cry: )

Slaying Transcona?

#18 Post by Hansi Smurf » 11 Oct 2010 00:45

Truthfully, before I even made the exclamation of destroying my old home-town, over the lack of stature-equal females, I had already done a relatively good job, of counting all of the heads of my own high school yearbooks, and I'm happy to report, that the pop/index 'tween the sexes, was exactly 50/50, just like Mommy and Daddy said it'd be! Hooray!

I'd guess, that, great, big fella's, with mere, 7 inch penises, are actually "short", mainly!

Me? Made 'fer Boo Boo! Hooray! (again)

Cool, huh, kids? 8)

You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.

Very funny topic. XD Those Afghan women are smart, good for them! And I remember reading that old article on being a good woman a while ago. I'd be such a terrible 1950s housewife, hahaha. I can't make a good sandwich to save my ass.

In my opinion, you could replace all that with one short line: "Give him a blowjob."

Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him. His boring day may need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it.
Given how the meaning of the word "gay" has changed since then, this reads like "get your girlfriend over"...

it's all a matter of perception, I'd say. I remember watching a docu on tv about *some* middle eastern country (I honestly don't remember which one), following one mid twenty woman around in her daily life/job/free time. Among other things, they went to a fast food restaurant, which had, like any other place there, a sperate entrance for single men and single women/families.

So after sitting down, the reporter asked the young woman how she feels about being segregated from the men all the time in public. She looks at him and says "you know, I never thought about it that way, i always thought the men are being kept away from *us*, not we being kept away from everybody else."

It's all a matter of how people involved in certain customs look at it and our western culture and generally accepted points of view don't necessarily apply to the rest of the world.

Well, if you put it that way, than the apartheid was just a point of view too.

There's certain a point of view from which apartheid seems like the right thing. People have it.
