Welcome to Bean Town...

So, as mentioned earlier, I've moved to Boston. I've been trying to get the lay of the land and get a better understanding for the area, so I haven't really had the time or energy to post. I've been here a week as of today. It's been harder than I thought it would, but it's also been really awesome. I've already got an apartment, and I've got some leads on jobs, in addition to being signed up with a temp agency, so we'll see how that goes.

So, until I get posting a little more regularly, here's a little bit of Boston to share. Consider it Monday Music Videos on Sunday. Or something like that.

Well, Roy, I just thought I'd wish you all the best with everything and look forward to you returning to post. Until then, though, enjoy yourself!

You know, you could be a pretty cute guy if you weren't into all this feminist nonsense. I cannot think of any female worth dating that would like to sit around and hear a bunch of white guilt-inspired BS about "racism, sexism, misogyny, etc". You'd be smarter to enjoy being a white privileged male, instead of blathering on about PC bullcrap that most people find annoying and stupid.

But then again, I'm sure you don't care what a 26 year old Libertarian female with the "default body" thinks, right? I mean, I'm going to vote for McCain, so I MUST be a racist monster that is intent on preserving the patriarchy that oppresses me! Well, I've never been treated any differently because I'm a woman, mainly because I don't go around getting offended over everything, and to be honest, the corrupt evil patriarchy has been pretty damned good to me (and you). I bet when or if your liberal PC utopia comes into existence, you'll be crying for the patriarchy to come back REAL QUICK, because all the "womyn" and minorities aren't going to do anything but make short work of all white men. So keep on ignoring your own interests to pander to a bunch of bullcrap that has no place in the real world....but just know that those out there with sense and knowledge of how the world REALLY works are laughing at you and your childish crap. I hope you grow up real soon...maybe you will when you actually spend some time around women and minorities. Yeah, that's a start, how about you go hang out in Harlem for a while, and then report back to us! LOL. You liberals are so silly :)

Well, I could do that, I suppose. But, I think it'd sort of make me a shithead.

I don't think that there's anything wrong with wanting to make the world a better place- and I think that racism, sexism and homophobia make the world a worse place. Of course people who benefit from those things resist change and find conversations about it annoying. Why wouldn't they?

I mean, I'm going to vote for McCain, so I MUST be a racist monster that is intent on preserving the patriarchy that oppresses me!

?
I don't think that everyone who votes for McCain must be some kind of racist monster. I think that McCain is a bad choice, and I think he's got a lot of ignorant beliefs that I find offensive.

Well, I've never been treated any differently because I'm a woman, mainly because I don't go around getting offended over everything, and to be honest, the corrupt evil patriarchy has been pretty damned good to me (and you).

If you've never been treated differently, then how has the patriarchy been good to you? We live in a world with a lot of competing interests- race/ethnicity, sex, gender expression, sexuality, wealth, perceived beauty... all of those things and more can influence how people treat you. The claim that you've never been treated differently because you're a woman is highly suspect to me. You've never had someone cat-call you? Give you special treatment because you were a woman? Assume you were incapable of some kind of manual labor or highly technical skill? Automatically assume you'd be good at some traditionally feminine task? Assume that you'd want children or be good at dealing with them? The odds are good that people routinely treat you in certain ways because of you sex, just like people assume lots of things about men because we're men.

I bet when or if your liberal PC utopia comes into existence, you'll be crying for the patriarchy to come back REAL QUICK, because all the "womyn" and minorities aren't going to do anything but make short work of all white men.

Yeah. That's my idea of a utopian society... one where "womyn" (can you feel my eyes rolling?) and minorities "make short work" of whitey. I can't imagine why someone would think you might have some racist ideas.

So keep on ignoring your own interests to pander to a bunch of bullcrap that has no place in the real world...

I'm going to keep right on recognizing that I'm only one person in a very big world, and I'm going to keep on believing that the world could be a hell of a lot better than it is.

but just know that those out there with sense and knowledge of how the world REALLY works are laughing at you and your childish crap. I hope you grow up real soon...

If the sort of people who are laughing at me are the same sort of people who have irrational fears about minorities somehow "making short work" of white people, I think that I'm doing just fine.

maybe you will when you actually spend some time around women and minorities. Yeah, that's a start, how about you go hang out in Harlem for a while, and then report back to us! LOL. You liberals are so silly :)

Yeah, you're absolutely right. If only I'd lived in a place where women also lived. It's been very difficult these last three decades, avoiding exposure to roughly 51% of the population, but, somehow I managed. And if only I'd been able to live someplace with a measurable minority population. I mean, Ypsilanti and Detroit are practically lily white. Damn my foolish liberal life.
