"But womenz are so oppressed! "

You realize that he probably instigated her? People dont just do these things. You just like to hear the one side of the story that you want to.

Yup, much in the same way Rihanna probably instigated shit with Chris Brown.
You fucking victim-blaming idiot.

"But women are so oppressed!"
How does one instance of one woman attacking a man negate the overall trend that it is the vast majority of the time, men doing the attacking?
Imagine you live in the South during 1840 and you meet a free slave therefore slavery must be over!!!1
Just, what

Fact bomb time!
"One instance"?  Guess again, hon.  People like you are part of the problem by thinking that ANY instance of women taking part in violent crime is "one instance".  Women in general have gotten away with some pretty goddamn horrifying shit simply because of their gender.  When it comes to the murder of spouses, 41% of the killers are women.  More women commit child abuse than men.  Children are more likely to be killed by their mothers than their fathers.  Even in domestic violence, at least 40% of the victims are MEN, with WOMEN AS THE ABUSERS.  Also, recent reports from both Harvard and the CDC have discovered that up to 40% of all rape is carried out by women.
And guess what, sunshine?  Instances of assault of women by men also does not negate the fact that the majority of men on this planet will never hurt another person in their entire lifetime. 
Acts of violence are not a product of our culture - they are a product of a lack of function in the brain, particularly the pre-frontal cortex.  You could bombard a man with violent imagery of rape and murder, but mere image and suggestion is not going to disable the functioning of the pre-frontal cortex.  This area of the brain is responsible for controlling our impulses.  For most human beings, this keeps us from acting out against what we’ve learned to be the appropriate behavior in our society.  Time and again, science has shown us that the brains of violent criminals are not the same as those of the average person.Here are even more resources for further reading:http://www.theguardian.com/science/2013/may/12/how-to-spot-a-murderers-brain

But hey - keep thinking that violence is only ever gender-based.  That’s TOTALLY going to help with that whole “equality” thing.

Men easily develop a desire for sex and/or a relationship with moderately attractive female friends, it’s just a natural progression. In addition, male friendships and female friendships are often very different on a closeness level. When I was in college (the age this sort of thing happened the most), it was very common for me, a woman, to spend the night in a close female friend’s dorm room talking deeply and openly about the most intimate details of our lives. Men do NOT behave this way with their male friends, and male friendships tend to consist of more conversation about mutual interests like movies, television, games, sports, music, etc, than about personal matters. Speaking openly about your life in that way is reserved for someone you feel a deep bond with: a girlfriend.
Then I’d have female friends who would try and treat their male friends like their female friends. Inviting them to their dorm rooms, taking long walks at midnight, having deep discussions about personal matters. Then the guy expresses his desire for a relationship, and the girl was shocked! All you want is sex?! I thought we had a close friendship!
Male and female friendships don’t work the same way. Anytime I tried to develop a friendship with a guy in the same way I have one with a girl the guy developed feelings for me. I learned that this isn’t because guys are all sexist jerks, but because what I think of as a “close friendship” to them only really happens in a romantic context, especially with an attractive woman. Whether it’s cultural or biological doesn’t matter, that’s just the way it is.
As such I’ve learned that my friendships with guys just have to be different than the ones with girls. With a girl I can call her up or invite her over when my partners out of town to rant about a relationship or family problem, can discuss the details of long-gone relationships, bits of my sex life, and the intricacies of navigating life, and to me that is a close friendship. With a guy friend I’ll hang out and invite him to group outings, talk about work, books I’ve read, world news…and that’s nice and all, but I’d never consider it a close friendship. But they don’t feel insulted, they act as if we are close, and they don’t declare their undying love for me!

Canadians.

I thought this was exaggerating until I wore a t-shirt outside today and realized it was -23.

i live in south europe and today was -2 and couldn’t get to my home because of how cold it was.i thought i was dying.and there wasn’t even any snow or rain or wind or anything

Being from America, this post is really confusing.

I just remembered that you guys use Celsius

I was thinking this was Fahrenheit and I was like dang canadians are hardcore 

Being from Australia I knew this was in Celsius and I was still like dang Canadians are hardcore

This is the UP precisely

Things Saskatchewanians say.

Honestly, -40 isn’t THAT cold, and -30 celcius is just -22 in feirenheit…

It’s pretty chilly.

It was -43 f, aka -41 celcius for you commies just this year…

In some places it routinely gets below -50.

it’s been -51f here…
