  • I went to college and have worked a middle class job since I was 17. Believe me, being smart has nothing to do with it, I’d say less than five percent of people I’ve worked with were “smart”, the rest are just doing the bare minimum to not get sacked.

    What ever you’re lacking in knowledge and skills can be made up for by just being keen.

    I admit that money does help, unfortunately, the mobility of classes has been in decline for decades now.







  • It’s just genetics, we know as a society that’s it’s not really appropriate for older men to be with younger women despite our basic instincts. I don’t think our human urges are inherently sad, just something to keep in mind.

    Some people call people like Mick Jagger and Leonardo DiCaprio sick for being with young women but I don’t think it’s wrong if both people in the relationship are happy.




  • I’d like to make it clear that I don’t think the issue a “sneaky perv” one. I think the issue is more along the lines of people who haven’t wholly transitioned yet getting fully nude along sideo females who may quite understandably imo feel insecure getting naked in the presence of someone possibly much bigger and stronger than them with the genetalia of the opposite sex.

    I think it is a very tough problem and that there is no simple solution that will please everyone, I also understand how upsetting and divisive the issue is.

    Since I can’t envisage a solution that will please everyone I think the next best solution will be to find a solution that pleases the maximum amount of people possible and I’m not going to pretend that I have that answer. But I’m also not going to pretend that it’s not an issue or that we don’t need to talk about it as a whole society.

    I think one possible solution (inb4: I already know it’s not ideal) would be to introduce a third changing room, a “no judgement” zone that can be used by all.





  • I’m aware that I’m oversimplifying things, it’s an extremely nuanced and sensitive subject and to write about it in whole on Lemmy would be a mile long wall of text. I don’t think I’m clueless, but I understand that insulting my intelligence makes you feel better about your predetermined conclusion and saves you from actually trying to engage with the substance of my comment.

    I think it’s pretty obvious that there are many people that think along the same lines as me but you can bury your head in the sand and pretend I’m a troll if you want.

    Regardless of my personal opinions, my comment was written as a proof of how the left, despite broad similarities and agreements, eats itself over minor differences whilst the right aren’t as bothered. You’ve done nothing but prove that point.
