Anonymous asked: I am 25 years old been listening to metal(not exclusively at all) since about 13 years old. I have constantly been bored by music which is why I went to metal in the first place. I just don't feel like anything will ever really inspire me from that genre again. Seems like all the new rly interesting bands just cannibalize lots of different genres or are photo copies of bands from 80s and 90s. Almost nothing is memorable. Am I just becoming an oldfag?
No you’re totally right: http://www.metalsucks.net/2013/12/06/metal-fans-hopelessly-stuck-past/
Anonymous asked: More often that not, good leadership, regardless of the leader's sex, lifts people up anyway. So the discussion is what makes a great leader and how can we incentivize those qualities. Being anti-bossy, or anti-anything won't work. Dropping a tumblrbomb in 3, 2, 1..."What you resist persists, what you fight against you get more of." -Carl Jung. Reward positive leadership qualities from a young age. "You see that? Jane showed great leadership there." Very close to anti-bossy, but flip the script.
"What you resist persists, what you fight against you get more of."
so so so so true

Definitely. They do really well.

Blonde roast drip coffee! But they seem to only have it in the mornings and it bums me out because I don’t like dark roast coffee :(
Anonymous asked: I agree with everything you've said, including that men shouldn't call women bitches, but don't you think being super sensitive to a few specific words makes women more vulnerable/likely to being discriminated against? I hate being called an asshole/idiot/incompetent at work and wish everyone would just be nice to each and talk like adults, but there's def a difference between being a rude person that calls people profanities and specifically making an offensive statement against women, right?
I have no idea what youre trying to say here
Anonymous asked: This conversation is starting to remind me of 21yr old girls who fund raise so that they can spend 3 months in Africa 'rly helping the poors' when they totally disregard social problems in their home town
Exactly what i am talking about
Anonymous asked: I'm not saying you're wrong. I have had office space experience. I was not trying to tell you that you're wrong. I would love to hear your solutions. I don't know of any because I'm not involved enough in that kind environment anymore. I was merely trying to state that those problems you stated were part of something that you said doesn't actually exist. You're a smart dude and I hope I'm not bothering you with this but I am just saying.
To me this is like arguing over the definition of “poverty” when there is a homeless shelter 10 feet away with a help wanted sign in the window
Anonymous asked: I've been wondering lately if people like satire (like the Onion) because it's legitimately funny or because it let's people that are in on the joke feel superior to those who don't get it.

Anonymous asked: I got yelled at by friends for saying a boss was a bitch once because they said it was just because she was a woman but I've also had a boss that exhibited the same qualities and I just said he was an asshole, same level of hate in both words
So just dont use the word “bitch.” Its not a good look for you, makes women feel bad, and you can get your point across without it.
Anonymous asked: Except that the disregard for female leaders in the workplace doesn't occur in isolation? Like, women aren't just being treated like crap because business is a weird unusual environment, it's a facet of a much larger, wider-ranging problem, emerging from a massive network of interacting social mores and institutional biases that consistently favour men over women. You're not wrong but you're pulling weeds out by the stem and leaving the roots in the ground.
Youre using a lot of big words that sound cool but i cant find anything specific or solution-oriented in there idk
Anonymous asked: You basically hit the nail on the head IMO. How do you think we should solve this problem? The best idea for me is to slowly weed out the idea of gender roles in our society, and that's what we've been doing for decades.
Well men and women ARE different in a biological/neurological sense so i dont think they should be treated as the same.
I think it comes down to good parenting: raise your kids to understand the differences between men and women while treating them with respect.
Simple, but easier said than done of course
My point is that tumblr “activists” tend to talk in extremely broad, abstract terms because a) they lack real world experience and b) theyre more interested in arguing than solutions (as this reply shows)
