For the longest time I was involved in a long distance relationship. Never a good idea. I had some people try and tell me a few things but ultimately I stayed. I didn't have it in me to end a relationship. I don't know why I became that way but essentially I did not want to cause another pain, so I developed a pattern where I would not end a relationship no matter how hard it was.

I've been wanting to do this blog for some time, really it has been something that I have wanted to say but I didn't know if I should do it on video or here in this blog. I really enjoy blogging but sadly the view counts I get here are less than motivational. Some of my blogs I have spend days working on, this one has been a month of brainstorming and writing and rewriting. For all of this I might hit 100 views. Meanwhile I could film myself barking at a tree and get a couple thousand views. Anyway, I decided that doing this as a blog would be better as I think I might get to emotional doing this story on camera.

Hey Red Pill Grumm, 2012 called and they want their Reply Girls back. I was doing research for another article I posted today http://happycabbie.blogspot.com/2014/09/harassment-is-part-of-internet.html and part of that including digging up a reference from the manosphere website ReturnofKings where I found this article. http://www.returnofkings.com/43795/the-shallow-narcissism-of-female-youtube-entrepreneurs
Long story short, the author Red Pill Grumm believes that women who flaunt their sexuality to get views and adsense money from YouTube are wrong and that it is MEN who actually produce things of substance.
Ok I swear I am not making this up. The FineBrothers actually tweeted this.
"In light of recent controversy on YouTube today, today's Teens React is important to watch as it relates to discussion about rape culture."Then as I was expecting them to tweet out a serious topic they then posted this.
"Objectification of women is something not discussed enough, and hope this episode helps in the conversation. http://goo.gl/gyvbF1 "That tweet linked to this video.
This is a response and refutation to the article posted by S. E. Smith of the DailyDot and the Kernal. The same opinion piece was posted to both sites but here is the link to the Kernal and I would encourage you to read it first and come back here. The page will open in a new tab. I could not disagree more with the premise of the opinion piece. My biggest problem with the article is that it portrays women as helpless victims who are at the mercy of the worst parts of the internet.
To be a woman, or someone perceived as such, online is to be considered fair game for virulent misogyny that includes being sent graphic images (some very creatively photoshopped), violent speech, and personally identifying information that serves as a reminder that your stalkers are only a few steps aware.

If you want a good laugh read http://madamenoire.com/290330/14-gestures-we-wish-men-knew-are-just-creepy/ There really is no other way to describe my reaction. Some of the 14 items and the reason the author, Julia Austin, thinks they are creepy is so silly it is beyond all logic. Allow me to show you the introduction.
"Chivalry may not be dead, but sometimes it takes on the form of a stalker, or at the very least a creeper. Guys: we know you’re trying to be nice, but these gestures actually just send us running for the hills."
If you learn nothing else from this blog, ladies and gentlemen, is to be careful when taking dating advice from the other team. Actions speak louder than words. Observe what people do, not what they say. For example, many ladies say they want to meat a nice guy with a steady job, yet many times they go for the bad boy with a lousy job. More on this at the conclusion of this article.

Today on Twitter I saw a post from my friend Vogter2100. The video linked to a facebook video of a young woman who is upset that the case against her rapist was dropped. Below is the video hosted on Facebook.

I just saw a video by my good friend ChristinePeace you can watch it HERE and be sure to help out with the ratings by the way. The video was in reference to an article on Buzzfeed titled. Will Misogyny Bring Down The Atheist Movement? The short answer in my opinion is no. There will always be atheists, and while organizations may come and go, there will always be people who just don't believe in God.

This past summer at the San Francisco Pride Festival (which happened in June 28th and 29th) anti-circumcision protesters BloodStainedMen were out holding signs. Now, this is America and people have the right to protest where they see fit, however as gay and lesbian couples do not typically give birth I would have focused my efforts elsewhere. At a gay pride event typically the ones holding the signs are the ones protesting the gay lifestyle and I wouldn't want my message confused with theirs. However, protesting is their right and so that is that.
The issue today is they uploaded an interaction with a young lady dressed as a fairy who seemed upset with their protest. Below is the video in question.
Key points of the video include:

This is a response to an opinion piece by the Daily Dot by Samantha Allen http://www.dailydot.com/opinion/things-better-if-women-ran-them/ Two other possible titles for this blog would be: What's stopping you?, or possibly What's Stopping Women?
I would encourage you to read her article first and then to return here. Clicking the link above will open the article up in a new tab. To summarize my point, there is nothing stopping Samantha Allen from doing all 7 things now, nor is there anything stopping any woman from entering the seven businesses she lists. Let's go one by one.

Recently I became active on the dating scene again. I spent several years in denial of reality and once I woke up I vowed never to make the same mistake again. It took me quite a bit of effort to overcome many self imposed obstacles. While some dates have worked out well, others were comically disastrous.
First and foremost is my weight. It is nobody's fault but my own that I allowed by body to get to where it is and it is my job to fix it. Secondly is my approaching technique is way off. The only way to get better is to approach approach approach. Most of the time I strike out, however there are times when I meet the right lady who wants some attention. I have been out of the dating scene for so long I am way out of practice and I have to constantly force myself out of my comfort zone.

This is the crux of the recent LaciGreen video on a channel she publishes to for Planned Parenthood.
I consider LaciGreen a friend, even met her once in 2010 and she was a great host. While I don't agree with the above video, the great thing about friendships is that we can disagree and still maintain friendship. Below you will find links to her YouTube channels and I hope you check them out.

Last year the internets were in a tizzy about Belle Knox being outed by one of her school mates as a porn star. Apparently he had seen her on Facial Abuse (A porn company that specializes in humiliation and degrading of it's talent. Essentially focusing on name calling and thrusting deep into the woman's throat to the point where she gags, often into a dog bowl.) At the time of this blog, the website redirects to another porn site possibly the parent company.
She then instead of trying to lay low and wait for the smoke to clear decided to go on every TV show that would have her and declare herself a feminist and that she was proud to do porn because it was the only way to pay for her education and that she felt empowered.
Do we want to live in a world where Meghan Trainor is considered fat? In my opinion she is probably 10 pounds heavier than she should be but with no visible double chin, and decent figure, she is hardly a woman I would call fat. For those who have not seen it, below is her music video, All About That Bass.
