The Ugly Truth

I watched the film The Ugly Truth in mild amusement, like I do most films about male-female dynamics. While the movie is meant to be entertaining, it kind of highlights a lot of what goes on with gender biases and social perceptions of men and women.

The male lead character basically describes men as the simple creatures who will do and say whatever it takes to bed a woman. Not exactly a ringing endorsement, but it’s a romantic comedy.

It did make me look further into the notion that men and women can both be ethically ambiguous. I read somewhere that that socialists consider a component of “ambivalent sexism” in the theory of benevolent sexism: “Women compared to men, tend to have a superior moral sensibility”. They actually conducted studies and claim that “women have a superior moral and ethical fortitude as compared to men”. I don’t know about that one!

It lends itself to male vs. female battle but we already know we are different. What are your thoughts? Should we really give credibility to these kind of studies?

@ GRACE: “I’ve had this debate about “unclean” foods from folks. The Lord declared all foods clean in the New Testament”

Indeed!…New Testament states “It’s not what goes in the mouth that makes you unclean…it’s what comes out”…

When I was a kid, we didn’t start school until that last week of August. We’d go to school for a week and then have a four day week the next week. But that was back in the days when people actually watch Jerry Lewis Telethon.

Sassy

lol… I didn’t really put Riverdale down. I’ve got much family there. I have a cousin who works at the Piccadilly on GA85 in Riverdale. He bakes many of the cakes. I saw him Saturday night and he gave the us 6 red velvet cupcakes that he made at work.

He also taught me how to make some awesome beer battered vidalia onion rings. They come out great every time.

PG – I’m glad to hear that.

See, this is why I’ll need to have a husband if I have a child. Having those kids practice FB in this heat just seems cruel. I’d veto all of that and make sure he was a hooper!

he didn’t really write anything down.

He just showed me. I do know that it takes a minute because the beer batter had to be refrigerated for a few hours after mixing.

The ingredients were all purpose flour, salt, pepper, beer, and of course onions. Mix the batter together and refrigerate for a few hours. After time passes, dip the onions in the batter and fry in veggie or canola oil.

The best use that I have ever found for a Natural Light.

I said that we started school later. I said nothing about practice starting later. We still started real practice the second week of August every year with two a day practices.

I say real practice because we still had conditioning all summer long before the season came. I spent many a June and July in “voluntary” conditioning drills like running the track or in the weight room. The head coach wasn’t there so it was a legal way around the no practice rule.
