I think a lot of them are drug addicts or are screwed up from child sex abuse.

I am still in favor of holding a door for a lady, trying to maintain some manners when a woman is around -- that could arguably be sexist. But I still see it as different than mauling a woman on film so some guy can get aroused at home.

"It beats hanging out drinking with a bunch of morons every night."

Hey, don't put down drinking with morons. I've have some darn good times drinking with morons. How could you get through a Timberwolves game if it weren't for alcohol and the intellectually challenged?

Morons are people too, people! Maybe even the majority of people. Lord knows we've elected enough of them to Congress. I've been told I have moronic tendencies myself...

Excellent point and according to Gloria Steinem and her followers, it "is" sexist. Or at least that's what they thought during the days of "2nd Wave Feminism".

Mauling? Is that what you think consensual Porn sex on film is?

Some of it is pretty violent. Consensual mauling?

Kinks,

I wouldn't necessarily consider those things sexist. I think maintaining manners is nice regardless of gender. As for holding a door for a lady, I catch myself doing that. However, sometimes my lady may also hold the door for me! I'm rather "feminist-minded", but I don't get in a huff if a man holds the door. It could be considered common courtesy all around. The world could do with a little more mannerly behavior. :)

It's a sticky question. I'm not extreme-feminist, and I hate the words "gay" or "straight". I would consider myself more "gender-queer". Sexuality is fluid.

So maybe all women should be promiscuous, but we should be polite to them?

LOL.....When you suggested the option of women behaving more like the women in porn, I wasn't thinking "promiscuity".....although that certainly increases one's odds on getting a date. As for politeness, why "not" be polite when meeting a woman, no matter her profession?

It is an interesting matter of perspective.

If you hold a door for anyone that's just good manors.

If you do it for a woman but not a man, I can see how some would call it sexiest & others wouldn't. I'm not saying it's wrong but I almost laugh at the feminists who say they want treated as equals but then also seem to want to keep some of the preferential treatments they get so really they just want spoiled? Like some femanists still want a guy to pay for thier meal on a date if I'm not mistaken. I can accept either way, I just find it funny that they preach wanting to be treated as equals WHILE expecting preferential treatment.

It's funny how we try to stop all these different types of discrimination yet accept others even if we aren't aware of it. I suppose I discriminate in favor of attractive people to a degree in what movies I watch, who I take at the strip club, etc. It's no secret a womans earning potential can go up if she's attractive in the entertainment industry. Guessing it holds true in service type jobs where customers tip say waitors & waitresses as well.

You might be able to stop it at the employer level but individuals (tv veiwers / customers / consumers in general) will still pretty much do what they want.

I hold the door for everyone, except for my mother, women, and people in general. Just kidding ;)

Not all feminists want to be spoiled, most just want to be treated like a human being instead of a piece of meat.

What was wrong with the "Breaking Bad" season finale?

Montage! Any time you have lazy writers trying to cram too much exposition into too small a space, they throw in a montage. This one was particularly egregious. What under the Albuquerque sun are we doing with this Czech Republic plotline, anyway? We don't have enough going on, already? It's like a mystery story character, introduced in the last chapter of the book, and then revealed as the murderer. It's cheating.

And, the whole episode was rushed. We want seven or eight murders in jail? It's done in a trice, again in montage, and nothing goes wrong with the improbable scheme. How in the chaotic world of prison bureaucracy could all of these victims and murderers come together in perfect synchronization? And none of the hitmen are ever going to rat out Walt and company? And nobody is just severely wounded? And nobody brags? Nobody's in the infirmary that day, or in segregation?

I call shenanigans.

I'm willing to stretch credulity quite a lot; the whole business of Gus's underground Dr. No style lab was a stretch, especially entering through a "Get Smart" style laundry machine. But Gus Fring was such a compelling character, I was willing to stretch.

The ridiculous business with the electromagnet took up a whole hour, and it was a fun hour, however unlikely the premise. Again, I'll overlook the obvious plot difficulties so I can watch Jesse's plan come to fruition.

The even more ridiculous train robbery? The shark was approaching the take-off ramp on that one. First... Walt is a Nobel-class chemist, we're told. So, why doesn't he just make his one methylamine? It's a fairly simple process using easily available non-controlled chemicals. Rob a train? With a stalled truck? An a crew of apparently blind and deaf guys? Yeah, right. But, the payoff was chilling enough to forgive the impossibilities.

This whole thing about cooking in tented houses is, again, veering off sharply from the possible. And no Gus Fring to make it interesting.

And then we get montage. Airplanes taking off, landing, bags of stuff in oil drums. We're supposed to believe (on Walt's birthday) that the previous four years of stuff have somehow been crammed into a single year, from Walt's diagnosis to Hank's being shot to Hank's rehab to Gus's Unterlaboratory. Thirty-some episodes comprising a single year. And then, we telescope the whole business of Lydian and her European connection and airplanes and bales of money into fifteen minutes of jump cuts.

It was a disappointment, is the gist of what I'm saying here. Not up to the writing of the first three years. We've come to expect better.

Oh, and why hasn't the obvious occurred to the writers' room? Walt Jr. gets hooked on blue meth. Moral dilemma, folks! None better!

Can you say "hypocrite"? Apparently most women are only "liberated" when it suits them. And paying for a date RARELY suits them, even if it's Dutch Treat. I was having this very discussion with my girlfriend at the time and another couple a few years ago; the other guy asked my girlfriend what "she" thought about paying her fair share? She said "I have breasts, I "don't" pay". lololol.....His jaw hit the ground before she told him she was just kidding.

Lets face it, women will never be equal until they assume the same risks (asking for a date) as men do and paying their share of a date.
