Okay, now that I understand a bit better... There are far more women that may want child care jobs because that's where they are. But there are also many women who don't want that, and are pushed into things like that anyway. I've said that I never want kids, and while I may decide differently some day (I'm not getting myself neutered or something), you wouldn't believe the number of people (male and female) who decide for me that I'm wrong and some day I'm going to pop out a million babies. I've seen guys laughed at for wanting to be more feminine, and girls laughed at for doing things that are more masculine. It's not evolutionary to mock people for not having your brain, it's dickish. Also... Have you noticed the difference between toys for little boys (cars, guns, balls), and little girls (tea sets, dolls, kitchen toys). As a young girl, I can definitely say that people tried to push me towards the girly things, and that could be part of why girls tend towards more girlish careers.

I understand the idea behind evolutionary psychology, I don't understand how feminists claim it doesn't exist.

Would someone please explain to me in which sense feminists don't believe in evolutionary psychology? I'd never heard of the term before, and I just looked it up but I'm still not sure I know what it's talking about.

You can't control what you're sexually attracted by, people or situations. I know I have a couple fetishes I'm not exactly happy about.

Sometimes people need to be told to eff off. You have to stand up against things that are wrong, and sometimes people will disagree with you, but that doesn't mean you can let things like (on a very large scale) the holocaust or (on a smaller one) discrimination or bullying happen. And sometimes standing up for those things gets you enemies of people who aren't good people.

No one can even confirm God exists... that's kind of the nature of God.

You can't punish a child because their mother did something stupid, you don't reward a child because their mother follows the law. It makes absolutely NO SENSE to treat minorities better because of what happened in the past, and if we continue to do it, then there will never be equality. Black people today don't deserve better than anyone else just because someone with their complexion was once a slave. There are STILL sex slave women in china and the like, but that doesn't mean I should get treated better because they're slaves. I'm not them, I don't get something to make up for their hardships.

segregation still happens, but in the majority, I think it's a matter of income rather than race. Unfortunately, there ARE a ton of minorities who are in poverty, but that doesn't make giving scholarships to the ones who aren't any better, or withholding scholarships for people who are in the same boat just because they're white.

Sub standard education is given to children who come from poverty, because their parents can't afford to donate to the school and because rich parents don't want their kids going to the "ghetto" schools. Admittedly, where I live, there aren't many minority people. In my high school there were seven black people (that I knew of) and like 35 hispanics (that I knew of) in a school with a population around 5k. I was part of the one apartment complex in the school's range, which mostly encompassed large houses and rich families. My school was the one with the fewest fee waivers in the school district, but even talking to my (junior high) friends who went to poorer schools, there weren't any more minorities there. A few of the people who lived in my apartment complex went to this really bad middle school, and while there were more hispanics there... there were still tons and tons of white kids, because they were poor, not because they were minority. You may be right that in some places

away from minorities and white people who don't have the money to pay for college on their own. Black people aren't inherently disadvantaged just because they have dark skin.

We don't have slavery, jim crow laws, or segregation anymore. The people who are alive and going to college now are not slaves and we don't have to make it up to them. There ARE minorities who have good jobs and good homes, and they don't get told they can't apply for minority scholarships. Black people don't all have learning disabilities. Like I said up above, equality is not EQUAL OUTCOME it's EQUAL OPPORTUNITY, the way to do that isn't to give minorities scholarships, it's to give scholarships based on INCOME so that regardless of race, gender, sexuality, the people who need those things get those things. Your child who has a disability doesn't have the equal opportunity inherently because she has a disability, and therapy brings her up to that level. But minorities who have a doctor and a lawyer as parents are at the exact same level as a white person who has a doctor and a lawyer as parents... except they aren't because the black person can get minority scholarships, taking them

Yeah, it does hurt, but the fact is we can't always just let people go on ignoring their flaws. If there's something that isn't good, sometimes they need to change, and getting 100000 compliments about the thing is going to make it impossible for them to see that it's not okay, even if everything they draw looks like dicks or they're leaning towards obesity. I don't care when I'm insulted by strangers because I'm just like "fuck you mate" but it does hurt from friends and family, and it's not fun, but we can't just ignore the fact that we're not perfect and we have to acknowledge our flaws and work to change them.

I really disliked the Maze Runner series, there was too much that didn't have good explanations imo. When I saw Eragon though I was devastated because they ruined the chance for them to continue :(

I've had wayy too many people give me false compliments and more often than not they actually lead to me wondering when people are actually telling me the truth, which means even when people give me completely honest compliments, I often don't take them seriously... False compliments just boost people's ego and give them a false sense of self-worth, where ACTUAL compliments can let people know where they're good and to keep doing that!

It's the same thing for white people. They dress like they're in a prison gang, they'll get treated like that. If you want to fit in to a certain part of society, you have to behave for that part of society, because no matter what, people are always going to jump to conclusions. How many times have you seen a white girl in uggs and not been surprised when she's carrying starbucks? It's how the human mind works, and you're going to either have to accept that or live life unhappy.

Just because people were slaves once doesn't mean they should get special treatment? I'm not saying that they do - I know that racism exists - but history has nothing to do with it. Racism is for all sides. Not being given a scholarship based on race is racist (looking at you minority scholarships) having to work harder to be accepted somewhere because you can't fill their fucking diversity quotas is biased, and it's quite possibly necessary to ensure that racism doesn't go the other way, but that doesn't change the fact that it is racist. If the fact that I'm a white person makes this offensive to you, that means ~you're racist~. Bias isn't just against minorities. As a woman and a biromantic asexual, I can definitely say that while I like being able to go to college for cheaper because of who I am, it's still biased towards me, and it's biased towards other minorities as well.

... Not all black people are poor. North West isn't poor. I'm white, and when I was 9 years old, we had the heat off all winter because we couldn't pay the fucking gas bill. Medians aren't the entirety of a race and medians don't make people who they are. If it did, I'd "act like a black person" according to you. It's so much harder to get out of fucking poverty for white people than minorities because minorities at least get minority scholarships. Straight white males? Nah, you can get grants. Racism definitely exists, but it isn't because all black people are poor. It's because people like you equate the majority to the entire thing. People decide "oh we need more /black people/ to rise up and do something with themselves. Not poor people. That's not equality, equality is an equal chance, not an equal outcome.
