*discussing perception of attractiveness in Hollywood*
Me: Like, I know that you’re a straight man so you don’t notice this, but Chris Colfer is fucking hot.
Sean: Hey. Just because I am a straight man doesn’t mean I don’t notice how attractive he is. He is damn attractive. He is quite cute.
She does have a point, this elle-bells. Everyone’s differences cannot expected to be accounted for. So, her different opinion should be discounted cause I don’t understand how bathrooms can be fiscal if they aren’t a business
Let me be more specific, and I would post the article on it from my college newspaper but I do not want to reveal where I went to school or more personal info.
The person wanted a bathroom for “an in-between sex.”
That’s right - not a bathroom for boys or girls-but a “3rd” mixed sex that does not exist. (Note the difference between biological sex and socially constructed gender here)
I am not speaking out against trans-gendered people, that’s a separate issue.
I am using this to underscore the real issue- we all have differences, inherently- that cannot be accounted for, or use regulation and tax dollars to fix and people need to get over it.
By “fiscal”, I mean its not economically beneficial to do, as alot of the times its tax dollars for a very small niche of people.
I am not responding to anything else about that post.
Have a blessed day.
Intersex people? Do they not exist now?
I hate to break it to you, but there are plenty of people out there that identify outside of the gender binary and no matter what you try to claim this person is trying to do by claiming “The term ‘sex’ was used! That’s pure biology!” it’s clear (s)he just wants a safe space for people to be able to use the bathroom without being threatened or yelled at, which happens to a lot of non-binary conforming and trans* people. (I have a friend who was giving a presentation on gender-queerness in class and, so, dressed herself up to look more gender neutral than she usually does. She was born female and identifies as a woman yet when she went to use the women’s bathroom before the class she got yelled at because she didn’t “look like a woman.” Gender neutral bathrooms just eliminate situations like that.) These people should be able to use the bathroom like everyone else, but they can’t because they don’t look right.
So you guys have two options—1) take the signs off one or two bathrooms and make it so that you don’t have to conform to one specific gender in order to be able to use those specific ones or 2) stop people from being assholes to people for using the bathrooms they should be able to use. It’s far easier to control the former than the latter. Once again, this is not an instance of “we can’t account for everyone’s differences.” This is an instance of “I don’t want to account for everyone’s differences” since it is pretty easy to account for differences in this situation. There are plenty of places that have converted from being single-gender buildings to co-ed buildings or segregated buildings to integrated buildings and they had to change their bathroom layouts accordingly and did just fine. I’m sure your school will manage.
The bigger problem for us with Elementary is:
What if it’s terrible? What if it’s awful? Then it degrades the brand.
If there’s this completely unrelated rogue version of Sherlock going around and it’s bad, it can be bad for us.
‘Annoyed’ on BBC, March 2012
One year and 24 episodes later: Look at your show, now back to Elementary. Sadly, your show isn’t Elementary, so stay pressed!
Oh, the arrogance of that windbag. Degrades the brand? Really Moffat? Really??
Cry moar, Moffat.
I’m betting what he meant was “What if it’s great? What if it’s amazing and everyone loves it? Then it’ll make ours look not as good. If there’s this completely unrelated unique version of Sherlock going around and it’s super-popular and fantastic, it can be bad for us.”
I was like
everyone’s differences cannot expected to be accounted for. It’s just not feasible nor fiscal usually.
I fail to see what’s not fiscally feasible about taking a sign off the bathroom labeling a bathroom as for men or for women. Their differences can very easily be accounted for, you just don’t want to account for them. Those are two very different things.
You wanted to scream at Pam, Pam? Really? How did that feel? I bet that was frustrating. At least you knew how it turned out.

Sorry, Nellie. I couldn’t remember her name for the longest time so I kept calling her Donna and now it’s just a habit. (She played Donna in Doctor Who.)
I don’t think so. He was dating a single mom who up and left and now he’s taking care of her child.
Ok, because him saying “Oldest story in the book.” Made me think he was lying. It’s ok, though. I like Donna adopting it because I really wanted her to get a kid.
Wait, is that actually Ryan’s baby? I assumed he borrowed someone’s but they just left it.
ETA: Oh my god, yes, Donna adopting it! I really hope that happens, yay! I was worried they’d dropped that.
Oh I guessed that Michael would be there :)
I assumed it, like, before I started the episode but then I was just focusing on what was happening and sort of forgot. Oh my god “He’s just so happy to have a family plan.” That was all I wanted. I’m crying again.
