• Question for women: Why do women seem to invariably embrace men around the neck and shoulders?

    That seems to invariably be the case, or invariably with many women. That is instead of e.g. around the waist or stomach. Perhaps the men usually being taller has something to do with it.

    This question should go in the 'Gender Studies' category. But, not many people there believe in Astrology. To get the complete picture, Astrology would need to be brought in there. This is the fast developing Aquarian Age. And, gender equality is actually an Aquarius characteristic. It would generally affect women more, due to being more right brain orientated, with men more left brain orientated, generally. (I'm quite balanced between the two.) Thus, there's feminism. Feminism, the ideology, is for men's equality as well. But, as with all ideologies in this world, the negative lower nature creeps in - messing them up. Thus, there's the strong and influential mainstream anti-men feminism, with hypocrisy and double standards. That's the desire for total female supremacy, disguised as equality. Thus, could say feminist, but not anti-men. Some would say that even the 'feminism' namesake shows gender bias. Thus, being an equalist, or something like that. I would. Humanity generally is struggling with gender equality. This can for instance be read in the 'Gender Studies' category here, especially with feminism topics. Gender equality is regarding others as people, rather than as men or women. It's not to do with the physical and emotional, but intellectual and spiritual.

  • Is it unfair that men have such clothing restrictions?

    Women have it better with clothes, having a larger variety they can wear. They can even wear men's clothes, no problem. But, not vice versa. He could get teased and harassed by religious and homophobic bigots. Meantime, it's just fabric. At some office workplaces, for instance, including in summer, men must wear long pants, shoes and socks. But women can wear e.g. sleeveless shirt, shorts, and open toed shoes. I won't even mention skirted outfits in everyday life. (Yes, some places can have men wearing them.) Some clothing designers have said that it's more suited for the man's anatomy - needing to be kept cool. Some have also said that the only difference between men and women's clothes should be underclothes. Formal outfits for men are just one outfit, with no variations. It's also basically what his grandfather wore. Yet, there're women who whine about not being able to be topless, yet have it better with clothes than men.

  • The affects of feminism from the former Communist bloc?

    In the days of the Communist bloc, in the Cold War (which started ending in 1989), it is said that many women had many job positions men would usually have.

I was wondering if there was men hating feminism there and then, with female supremacy desires disguised as equality. If not, why not? Perhaps those oppressive governments prevented those women doing so. That might only have come into being there, after 1989. It can mean that some of those Russian women (like the ones we see advertised) could be that way. Perhaps women having those job positions was a reason for the downfall of the Soviet Union. (I'm joking actually. It was a mixture of various reasons actually.) I was also wondering if many women there still have those job positions now.

  • In England on local TV channels, are there many foreign language films dubbed/subtitled in English?

    In England, on local TV channels (like BBC, ITV) are there many foreign language films / TV series that are dubbed or subtitled in English? That's especially continental languages like e.g. Spanish, French, German.

  • Overall – More camaraderie between girls or between guys?

    Overall and generally, is there more of a sisterhood, camaraderie, between girls, or more of a brotherhood, camaraderie, between guys? Many people would probably reckon the former.

    Overall and generally, is there more of a sisterhood, camaraderie, between girls, or more of a brotherhood, camaraderie, between guys? Many people would probably reckon the former. That is due to more intimacy, like calling each other e.g. ‘sweetie’, hugging each other, and going to the public restroom together. Guys wouldn’t do those. But the guys could call each other e.g. ‘bro’ (short for ‘brother’), and perhaps more often. Apparently, that girls’ intimacy is only among good friends. The girls would otherwise dislike each other. If girls sit around watching TV it would usually be a soapie or love story. That’s invariably with a few main characters, especially a few women characters. If guys sit around watching TV it would usually be a sort of sport like rugby, American football, or soccer. That shows more camaraderie with about 30 other guys - the players. (The guys wouldn’t invariably watch something like woman’s netball, to look at the women.) Guys would have competition among themselves like with lifting the heaviest weight at gyms, talking about who has the biggest certain body part. That seems to be seldom. Girls would have competition among themselves with beauty and clothes. That seems to be often, even almost daily. Some women wouldn’t even want to be in the same social get together as a woman with the same clothes. The guys wouldn’t care about something like that. There’d be guys having fist fights. But, it seems like overall there’d be less physical fights between guys, and more verbal fights between girls. I’m introverted, so I don’t really know. But it looks like there’s overall more camaraderie between guys. So, the double standard that plenty of women don’t like being stereotyped but stereotype men may have some merit. More than likely with mainstream feminism being so anti-men, and western women generally being now so privileged, that camaraderie between guys might increase.

  • Should all pilots have some flying time in gliders?

    There was a case in Canada, in 1983, where a passenger jet ran out of fuel - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gimli_Glider. Luckily the pilot was a former glider pilot.

    There was a case in Canada, in 1983, where a passenger jet ran out of fuel - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gimli_Glide... Luckily the pilot was a former glider pilot. Otherwise the plane would have crashed. The incident was put into simulators, and all other pilots 'crashed' the plane. Flying a glider is not the same as flying an airplane. I've also been up in both - as a passenger. So, my question is should all pilots have some flying time in gliders? It can just be up to 2 or 3 solo trips. I'd say so. Things can go wrong with the engine(s) - like running out of fuel, or failing. (Helicopter pilots included, as they can usually also fly airplanes.) I'd like mainly pilots, and former pilots, to answer.

    Someone told me that all over the Caribbean American money is acceptable, which is equal and interchangeable with the local money. (It's the same in Namibia, with South African money.) Does that include Cuba? Cuba hasn't had good relations with the USA since Castro.
