Sometimes the employees of a company are so consistent in the way they perform a certain task, it seems that’s how they must have been trained. Here, without naming names, are these companies’ employee manuals…probably.
Right. Totally. Fewer people on welfare will DECREASE poverty. That’s EXACTLY how that works.
"That’s just how men are."
If you’re a woman and you’re saying this, you’re enabling, reinforcing, and endorsing this behavior. And your stamp of approval will get trotted out as backup over and over again.
If you’re a man and you’re saying this, you’re throwing your entire gender under the bus for YOUR lack of ambition to be better than a stereotype, and admitting that you’re perfectly content with being seen as little more than an immature child.
I wonder if in ANY way this speaks to the problem someone in his position had. I can’t imagine Kumail’s the only person who was so stunned by him that he couldn’t say all the things he wanted to. I know when I had a conversation with him, we talked about things that had nothing to do with how much I loved him. Because that was the polite, respectful thing to do, of course. You don’t overwhelm a celebrity with inane blubbering about how much you love them. But I have to wonder… how many people in his world, how many people that he surrounded himself with, how many people whose opinions he respected, held back in the same way?
I imagine it wouldn’t have helped. Depression just isn’t that simple. It never is. But I can’t help but wonder anyway.
