I saw something on FB that reminded me of myself a number of posters here.

It read "when you stop trying to find the right man and start becoming the right woman, the right man will find his way to you."

I call busll****. There is nothing wrong with me and this random "sagism" wants me to assume there is. I hold people up to a standard, I expect to be respected and treated well. Maybe my past doesn't prove how strong I can be, but by promoting the belief that I am somehow flawed and need to fix myself before the "right" man will find me is extremely bigoted.

Now, on the issue of "Think Like a Man." Woman who are successful shoulw lower their standards because men are intimated by them? and that's somehow their fault? *steps back* Ain't a damn thing wrong with having standards and they should not be lowered to simply have someone in your life so you can curb the loneliness. My IR teacher once said to me that no one wants to end up with someone you want to talk to about current events and all they can do is nod their heads because they fail to form an opinion or know what's going on.

Imma be alone for the rest of my damn life.

I went on my pc to see what the curlyguru thing is.... It's annoying and irrelevant. Glad I use the app
hahaha. I would much rather put up with that damn curly guru thing that spend any time here (or anywhere else) on a phone. I would have migraines every day!

I think I might be getting a different version of the Curly Guru thing then some other people. I only see it once, as the second "post" on a page. If the first post is short and I scroll down, most of the time I never see it.

It's only annoying to me because it takes awhile to load and when it does it makes the page jump. I could be halfway down a thread and then all of a sudden I'm back at the top.

@ gekko:

my ex used to like to say that "men choose and women settle" because women have to wait for a proposal.

Well, I'm not gonna settle, and my mom has gotten used to the idea of an adopted grandchild so I think I'm pretty golden.

Don't ever think that, Speckla! Your opinion is just as relevant as anyone elses. Unfortunately, some people feel the need to put others down to feel better about themselves. The only thing you need to do is not let them get to you.

It's sad that some people never out grow being bullies
Um, I don't see anyone "being a bully" (that seems to be misuse of the term) or putting someone down to feel better about themself. I took issue with speckla's suggestion that CIBC's customers were"racist" because first of all, I honestly thought it was a failed attempt at humour (that's how ludicrous the suggestion honestly seemed to me) and then I disagreed with her logic in defending that suggestion. That's how a debate generally goes, and it's happened to me plenty of times with positions I've taken on heated topics, as it has to most people here I would think. I agree with speckla that my tone came on too strong and my approach was more aggressive than it needed to be. I am sorry for that and I feel bad that she feels bad because I do think she has a good heart and means well. I hardly think that that means I was being a "bully."

Speckla, again, I am sorry for my tone.

I interpret this saying quite a bit differently!

To me, it's not so much about becoming the right woman for some man, or settling or whatever. It's more about focusing on yourself, developing into a great version of yourself, being comfortable with yourself, loving yourself. It seems to me when a woman, or a man for that matter, focuses on these things, they tend to draw the right people to themselves.

Maybe, kayb, this saying isn't meant for you at all. It is for some, though. Some folks are so caught up in finding The One, they are having a simply miserable existence. That's the sort of person I see this saying as trying to address.

I have to say though, it's rather irritating that so many people take the position that actual facts and actual information on a topic don't matter and that "having the right to have an opinion", however wrong, is more important. And now not only that, but insisting on a fact- or logic-based conversation (however aggressively that may be done) is "bullying" and "putting people down to feel better about yourself" and silencing people? Really? And to say this to people of colour on the topic of racism? And to be a person of colour saying this yourself?

I think this should answer peoples' questions as to why Obama was not more aggressive in his debate with Romney and why he allowed so many untruths to slide. Being perceived as "playing nice" trumps learning and studying in the world we have.

I completely agree. I was biting my tongue, because no, everyone is NOT entitled to their "opinion" when that opinion is factually wrong. Saying blue is a better color than yellow is an opinion; saying the sky isn't blue, it's yellow is factually wrong, and it's not bullying to point that out.

Look, it is best to just let it go. I'm not trying to gain sympathy from anyone, no one is being bullied. It is a very touchy subject and it does raise a lot of emotions. My self-esteem a lot of the time is about 1" from the ground. This is true and it's something that I'm learning to deal with. I take everything and internalize it because I on a base level feel like an uneducated, immature, and it's my issue to deal with and no one should have to apologize. I shouldn't be putting myself down and this was not a personal attack I know that. It has nothing to do with me as a person but how my statements come across. Everyone does have a right to say what they think. Some people are more logical and some people are more emotional. I happen to be emotional and it clouds my logical thinking (a lot). Can we please just drop this? Racism, sexism, agism, and anything else like that makes me sick to my stomach and I can't stand anyone putting anyone else down for anything.
