Passenger complains about female pilot; she posts his complaint and bitches about it on Facebook

She’s an airline pilot, a captain, but mere words got under her skin.

She posted that, and replied:

“I respectfully disagree with your opinion that the ‘cockpit,’ (we now call it the flight desk as no cocks are required), is no place for a lady. In fact, there are no places that are not for ladies anymore.”

Classy, eh? The term ‘cockpit‘ has nothing to do with penises.

Oh, and there still are places not for ladies, or even women for that matter: the pulpit in a decent church; wherever special forces are deployed; and still many other places, not least of which being the men’s room.

Subverting two old feminist cigarette ads, making them pro-traditionalism posters instead

I came across this Atlantic article about tobacco advertising and feminism, and on seeing this ad and this ad, I realized with tweaking, they could easily be turned into pro-traditionalism posters, not feminist cigarette ads.

I don’t have Photoshop, nor do I have many skills in that area, but I saw no reason for that to stop me; voila! :)

More fun with Autocomplete: ‘should’, ‘should not’, and ‘need’

Just for fun, as last time, some more fun with Google Autocomplete results.* Most of these I actually did a while back, and tweeted them; they’re all to do with stereotypes, because what’s more fun than that? ;)

I found that Autocompletes about ‘are’ were less interesting overall than ‘should’, ‘should not’, and ‘need’; and so I’ve chosen to share some of the latter three kinds here, from the searches I did.

As before, these are all from screencaps that are unmodified except for truncation in some cases, but that’s it.

*And yes, I’m aware now what I didn’t know then, that results are somewhat individualized, evidently. Oh well!

I’m not the only one who has had fun with Autocompletes – see here and here for other Autocomplete results.

Sixteen or so ways to find a wife, according to Scripture

There is no one Biblical method as to how one should obtain a wife. Why, Scripture discusses some sixteen or so different possible ways:

1) Find an attractive prisoner of war, bring her home, shave her head, trim her nails, and give her new clothes. Then she’s yours. (Deut. 21:11-13)

2) “Lay hold on” a virgin who is not betrothed to another man, and “know” her, but afterwards pay her father a sum of money. Then she’s yours. (Deut. 22:28-29)

3) Find a prostitute and marry her. (Hosea 1:1-3)

4) Find a man with seven daughters, and impress him by watering his flock.–Moses (Ex. 2:16-21)

5) Purchase a piece of property, and get a woman as part of the deal.–Boaz (Ruth 4:5-10)

6) Go to a party and hide. When the women come out to dance, grab one and carry her off to be your wife.–Benjaminites (Judges 21:19-25)

7) Have God create a wife for you while you sleep. Note: this will cost you a rib.–Adam (Gen. 2:19-24)

8) Agree to work seven years in exchange for a woman’s hand in marriage. Get tricked into marrying the wrong woman. Then work another seven years for the woman you wanted to marry in the first place. That’s right. Fourteen years of toil for a wife.–Jacob (Gen. 29:15-30)

9) Cut 200 foreskins off of your future father-in-law’s enemies and get his daughter for a wife.–David (1 Sam. 18:27)

10) Even if no one is out there, just wander around a bit and you’ll definitely find someone.–Cain (Gen. 4:16-17)

11) Become the emperor of a huge nation and hold a beauty contest.–Xerxes or Ahasuerus (Esther 2:3-4)

12) When you see someone you like, go home and tell your parents, “I have seen a woman; now get her for me.” If your parents question your decision, simply say, “Get her for me. She’s the one for me.”–Samson (Judges 14:1-3)

13) Kill any husband and take HIS wife. (Prepare to lose four sons though.)–David (2 Sam. 11)

14) Wait for your brother to die. Take his widow. (It’s not just a good idea, it’s the law!)–Onan and Boaz (Deut. or Lev., example in Ruth)

15) Don’t be so picky. Make up for quality with quantity.–Solomon (1 Kings 11:1-3)

16) A wife?–Paul (1st Corinthians, chapter 7)

Humourous, but the point should be clear: Scripture doesn’t mandate any one particular method.

That’s up to you. As you perceive yourself Spirit-directed, while exercising wisdom and discernment, of course.

Therefore don’t let anyone say either, on the one hand, that one particular method, whether dating, courtship, betrothal, arranged marriages, etc., is ‘the Biblically preferred / sanctioned’ method, or, on the other hand, that Scripture resolutely condemns a particular method (if it even mentions said method; Scripture is likely not exhaustive of all possibilities, and doubtless wasn’t intended to be, either) – unless, of course, you can find a specific Biblical passage against it. If you do, please share with everyone; we’re all ears. But you won’t.

AND Paul reminds us that it is legitimate to choose not to marry, either, for that matter.

Do creepy guys who are handsome get a free pass?

creepy

Just jealousy and wishful thinking on the part of betas, or is there some truth in these? IMO, I think there is.

(BTW, one of the co-creators of the video is a woman, and it was her idea, apparently. Just so you know.

OTOH, the comic strip writers are all guys. Just so you know.)
