The Worst Arguement of All Time!!!

Have you ever been in a situation where you found yourself arguing about who is more oppressed? I just recently found myself in a heated debate with a gay man about which us have seen more oppression and injustice. We were saying things like, "You've never had to hide who you were!" & "It's not like I can hide being black! It's the first thing you see and notice about me!" By the end, we were both more exhausted than any closer to resolving any issue. I just wondered if anyone else has fallen into this trap. Being a black man, I can think back to having this same argument with a white woman, and a Jewish man. All of us were making great points and each of us had felt real pain. I have recently decided that pain is universal so I am going to TRY and not engage in that sort of argument again. When I say pain is universal, I mean, the feeling. Like falling. When someone is falling it feels the same for everyone. Scary as hell. Unless you are some sort of thrill seeker. Since the sensation of fear and lack of control is the same for all people while they are falling; should the distance or height they are falling from matter? Maybe it's the same for pain and oppression. But that's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I?

The Man Rules

I was sent this in an e-mail. It is called, The Man Rules.

1. Men are NOT mind readers.

2. Learn to work the toilet seat.You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.We need it up, you need it down.You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

3. Sunday sports It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides.Let it be.

4. Crying is blackmail.

5. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it!

6. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

7. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do.Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

8. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become Null and void after 7 Days.

9. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

10. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one

11. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done. Not both.If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

12. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials..

13. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.

14. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings.Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

15. If it itches, it will be scratched.We do that.

16. If we ask what is wrong and you say " nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

17. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear.!

18. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine... Really .

19. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball or motor sports

20. You have enough clothes.

21. You have too many shoes.

22. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!

23. Thank you for reading this.Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight;But did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.

You'd think I'd be tired of these corny e-mail attachments but I think it's hilarious and some of it is very true. But that's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I?
