"But are women the ones who need to change? If I’m saying something intelligent and all a listener can hear is the way I’m saying it, whose problem is that?"

Not at all.  You know what is a troll?

"With men, we listen for what they're saying, their point, their assertions."

BULL

SHIT!!!

People have been focusing on how people talk for centuries and it is NOT a gender thing.  You could be the most brilliant White Heterosexual CIS Male Astrophysicist in the world giving a speech on a discovery that will change the very way we understand the universe.  But, if you slip a "y'all" into your speech, it's over.  People will focus in on the hayseed giving a speech about .... something....instead of the actual speech.  Ask George W. Bush what an awkward pronunciation of the word "Nuclear" does for your reputation.

This is the way it has been for centuries.  You want to ascend the corporate ladder?  Here are the vocal patterns that you use.  You want to give a speech on astrophysics?  Here are the vocal patterns you use.  Men have understood that and learned to adapt.  Feminists, on the other hand, write whiny articles about how the patriarchy is against them.  This may come as a surprise but Toastmasters and other speech coaches didn't just suddenly spring up when women started entering the workforce nor do they only offer services to help women speak like men.

As such, I reiterate:  If your speech patterns are hindering people from focusing in on what you're saying, it is not the world's fault or even the patriarchy's fault.  It's your fault.

But you want to see a troll:  Okay, here it is.

I award this article a demotivator.

"..[W]hen you look at the actual data, women’s odds of advancement are 15% lower than men’s.
It’s not because women are less capable: the evidence is strong that although men tend to be more confident leaders, on average women are more competent leaders.
And it’s not just a glass ceiling: women face bottlenecks in the middle and sticky floors. At every level, women are less likely to advance."

Women coders do better than men in a gender-blind study that examines GitHub requests.

So you're saying that the efforts of two decades of a misandrist public education system that is trying to push girls into STEM jobs and boys into dropping out are starting to bear fruit.

Who could have seen that happening?

Oh noes! Apparently it's okay to have a fan film so long as the quality isn't too good.
'Axanar' aims to be a professional-quality prequel and has raised more than $1 million.

Kudos to GoDaddy for providing this information. In all, women are doing well, but the gaps in tech and management, while small, still need to be considered.

I have been going to Muddy Branch for several years as they are not only my vet, but offer their services at cost to the rescue group I volunteer with. All three vets are caring people who are willing to take the time to make sure your pet is doing their best. The staff are all friendly and helpful - it's obvious they love animals. This time when I visited, my dog too exception to having his teeth examined and snapped at the vet. She went out of her way to make sure there was no pain causing his reaction and then spent some time with me reassuring me that nothing was wrong and suggesting how to prevent this in the future. When I had to put my last dog to sleep I lost count of how many people there hugged me and told me they were sorry. This kind of caring means a lot.

I don't go out to movies very often because I don't enjoy the experience. Now I need to rethink that. iPic theaters are the closest thinback.g to your own living room you'll find in a movie theater. Recliners, pillows, a blanket in case you get cold... A decent menu of food and drinks that will be delivered directly to your seat, Oh, and only two seats in a grouping (for the more expensive seats), and 10 seats to a row. Lovely time. I will be

This is one of my favorite places to eat. Whether the welcoming outdoor patio, the cozy seating inside (almost all booths) or the live music on weekend nights, you can't help but feel relaxed here. And there there's the food! I go most Saturdays because their soupe pf the day is chili. Their chili is fabulous, and their house salad is far nicer than most - no iceberg or romaine, instead you get field greens, beets, walnuts, tomatoes, and more. Other favorites are their prime rib and hamburgers.

I bought a bedroom set from Bassett - it was beautiful. However, within 2 month the mattress began sagging. I contacted Bassett and did not get a response for THREE MONTHS. Finally they replaced the mattress supports - 2 months later it started sagging again. Over the course of the next few months they replaced the rails, the mattress slats, their supports... NOTHING worked for more than 2 months. Then the warranty expired and I never heard from them again. I finally just replaced the whole damn thing. If you want furniture that looks good but doesn't last, this is the store for you.

Before I started using Aveda Bethesda I tried 4 other Hair Salons. And none of them could consistently get my cut and color right. One month it's be perfect, the next month I'd be blonde, the month after that it would go frizzy... I went to Aveda Bethesda because I like the Aveda products. On first impression it seems small and cramped, with things like customer waiting aread and hair washing stations squished in wherever there's a little room. The pace is rather frenetic, unlike other Aveda salons I have visited, But Lan is amazing. My hair color looks better and more natural than my actual color and my hair looks good no matter how much (or little) work I put into it. And it looks good EVERY TIME. And that makes this salon the best I've found in the DMV.

You don't go here for the ambiance - when it's full it's loud and everyone is packed together. You go here for the food. The omelets, which are enough for two and incredible, but the crepes are my favorites - They're buttery and filled with fruit, or chocolate, or nutella... Delicious. Try their blueberry or gingerbread pancakes if you want to go that route. Trust me, it's worth the crowd.

This Safeway is always dirty and poorly maintained. The staff is slow and indifferent. Tuesday I bough dairy there which made me sick - turns out it had expired two weeks previously.
