Stephen Michell takes on the idea that there is such a thing as a woman who is actually a girl.
Stephen Michell read a list that categorized all females into neatly organized boxes of girls vs. women… so he came up with a list of his own.

This is amazing. 

Yeah, guys are affected by the images of male bodies, too. 
David Guba lost the idea of what real, vulnerable, human males are supposed to look like in a sea of airbrushed, waxed abs.

Frederick,
Oh, I see. Well, my point was that we can count on some person or persons finding us beautiful and attractive. We ought to think of ourselves as such. Surely some person or persons will agree with us.

 It is equally true that many persons will not see us as beautiful or attractive. I think that we ought to not feel so badly about that, since there is always someone or someones willing to find us beautiful or attractive.

I am not gay, but I find it hard to believe that all gays are of a like mind. I imagine that there are gay persons willing and able to see you as beautiful and attractive.

I am not generally considered pretty. I have been turned down by women I thought were no better looking than my own self. I have also had a fling with a lingerie model and a long term relationship with a very beautiful, attractive, and adventurous, female Psychopath. =)

Some persons find me hideous. Some persons find Charli or Lorde hideous. If persons can be so critical of such lovely looking women,  Charli and Lorde, what can I expect?

I once overheard a friend of mine discussing, with some irate male,  why her very good looking girlfriend was going out with me. My friend, dear Alicia, replied, " Well, Mike is ugly, but he is very sexy." Thanks Alicia! =)

Don't take rejection so hard. There must be gay persons into you. There are gay persons into me. I am not flawless, in any way, not to mention straight! 

Do well and be well, always.

I wrote about men's role in feminism. Some people were mad, but most really liked it. 

So that's good!
Joanna Schroeder believes women-identified folks should be leading and defining the feminist movement, but that doesn't mean there isn't a place for male allies.

I see my role in all matters as finding a mutually beneficial end, where all parties are best off, in a position that is superior to any all all positions otherwise achievable, if each and every party acted alone. 

Social interaction that is not mutually beneficial is generally unsustainable. I am not convinced that all forms of feminism represent my best interests. I will support feminism to the extent that feminism will reciprocate, but no further.

 For instance, I am utterly put off by feminist circles pushing Critical Race Theory. I recognize that correlational studies never establish causal relationships, ever. Even if Critical Race Theorists could establish the existence of a White male supremacist structure in the USA, they could not establish that such a structure causes negative life outcomes for any sociologically identifiable racial group, within the USA.

 I will not be a scapegoat, not for anyone, even if one is marginalized in society. I don't run my society, the political elite and ultra rich do. I live in a Republic, not a direct democracy. The political elite of my society do not have to listen to what I have to say and they almost always do not listen to what I have to say. If the US political elite did listen to me, we would all be better off.

The persons running my society aren't handing out free rides to White males, like me, no matter what one believes. Likewise, the persons running my society are not listening to me, even though my area of professional training could help a great many persons, without regard to gender or sociological understandings of race.

 I could help my political elite create laws and policies that would get Global companies to organize in ways that would create a great many primary and secondary functional careers, benefiting many men and women. No one in the political elite cares to listen, though. The US political elite would rather discuss immigration reform and Iraq, than discuss the one half of two, highly educated, US generations currently out of work, underemployed, or inappropriately employed. 

I will not scapegoat anyone, either. Feminism is not the root of all evil. There are many kinds of Feminism and many Feminists seeking mutually beneficial ends. How could I not want to work cohesively with such persons?  They serve my interests.

I ask only that persons deal with me in good faith and seek the best result, one where we are all best off. I will work with any woman seeking to achieve an optimal and mutually beneficial World, where we all live the best lives we can. This is one reason why I support race and gender neutral affirmative action. This is why I will support anyone seeking to make things better, for all of us, in good faith.

Wow, interesting…

Well, how can we use emotional intelligence to benefit the individual and society, over all? Let us take empathy. In contrast to sympathy, where one may acknowledge a hardship faced by another person, with empathy you have either been there or can project yourself into this hardship. 

Mere empathy alone is no indicia that one is committed to a mutually beneficial union with one or more other persons on Earth. It is clear to me that empathy, an aspect of emotional intelligence, will not necessarily, in and of itself, motivate the user of empathy to do anything useful or beneficial, on behalf of any other person.

Whether the user of emotional intelligence is human or otherwise, to what end emotional intelligence is bent has a great impact on the potential benefits to society of the use of emotional intelligence. After all, I may be able to project myself into your situation, but this does not mean that I have any intention of alleviating your hardships. I may, instead, take advantage of your hardship, to my advantage and your detriment.

Here I confess that my life isn't perfect (DUH) but also that sharing our best selves isn't necessarily so bad...
Joanna Schroeder challenges a viral video's assertion that Facebook is basically a haven for lies and narcissism intended to make people's lives look perfect.

I wrote this for New York LIfe, about an awesome campaign. But it's really about my husband, and a piece I've been thinking about for a while now. 
Joanna Schroeder looks back on how her husband---who as she says was "born to be a dad"---allowed her the space to be present with her children and celebrate the good.

This is the silliest thing I'll ever send to your inbox. But I really do want to know if other people are as completely ridiculous as I am.

Also, see if you agree with me about how Friday the 13th should not be unlucky. It's illogical.

With the Chicago Sun-Times publishing  a hurtful and offensive oped denying Laverne Cox her right to her gender, there's a lot of talk about what and who gets to determine sex and gender.

And lest you think sex is simple (you're born a boy or a girl), it's time you understand the reality of how often that's simply not true. The male/female binary is NOT necessarily biological.

AND a scientific and handy chart to help us all understand more fully how complicated sex and gender can be. 
Siobhán Lynch uses scientific data to explode the myth that human beings only have two possible sexes.
