    No, actually, I can do much much more but I choose not to. she is making claims that are unfounded. As in it (misogyny) is rampant here... it is not and you effing know it.. just as she does....

    Re: 10 red flags to keep in mind when meeting girls

    Red flag lists, when they pertain to gender, are for the most part, stupid and are only for paranoid people of both sexes.

    Having said that I have a red flag short list of my own that I have found to be most effective for both sexes:
    A much more reasonable set of very rational things to look out for.

    It's bound to happen sometimes.

    Even if we didn't have sexism around, we'd still have arguments since we are human beings and that's within our nature.

    The important thing is that afterwards, we move on from it and grow.

    Re: 10 red flags to keep in mind when meeting girls

    Quote Quote from dad_savage View Post
    This article is poorly thought out and doesn't make a lot of sense. It's also quite demeaning.

    1. Tattoos – this category is the single most obnoxious. If Angelina Jolie can have tattoos, than so can other women. Celebrities should not be given special licence. I see more attractive women every time I go outside the house than these so called 'drop dead gorgeous,' movie stars (most of whom are pathologically egotistical sociopath) tattoos can be part of non-Western culture, and are not always about vanity. While I agree seeing a woman covered in ink is not exactly feminine many women can make a small design look good if they select it with care and look after themselves otherwise.

    3. Make-up Extremities - If a woman chooses to go natural, and not wear makeup, fuck off telling her she can't. This is absolute bullshit. When women say 'a man has to-' we tend to flip-out hard, and with good reason. A person should define their own femininity/masculinity. I've known many very attractive women who either could not (due to allergies) or simply refused (due to the dishonesty and expense) to wear make up. I've known women who did not need to shave in order to have smooth limbs. I've also known women who were exceedingly precise about self-presentation (usually came of some aspiration, or as a result of career) and who were nevertheless neither unattractive nor vain.

    4. Too Many Guy Friends - Whoever wrote this gobbet of stale idiocy needs to actually meet some women. Men generally do not 'pal up,' with whores (this guy probably does because its the only way he gets a sniff of pussy) and women who have a lot of guy friends are usually those who are decent enough to be nauseated by the social games of other women. The finest women I've met in my life generally had very few female, and very many male friends, point-blank, the finest.

    6. Extremely “Anti-Trendy” - Yes of course, better she be a robot. Because the established order promotes such fantastic behaviour in women, and encourages them to treat men soooo well.

    7. Overly Forward - Assertiveness and confident are authentic adult qualities. Just because a woman happens to not buy into your ridiculous fetishistic, hebephile 'corruption-of-innocence-all-women-are-girls,' jack-off fantasy doesn't mean she lacks character or quality as a human.

    Honourable mention: Overly Athletic – Again, paw-thetic assumption. This chap clearly has a very fragile sense of his own masculinity and is, as such, very easily threatened. There are quite a few athletic realms in which the average male and female can compete on a level playing field particularly if there are differences in age, lifestyle, etc. Competition can be enjoyable, and I personally happen to find athletic women are generally above-average in looks and confidence. If this means we're going to rib each other over who can jog further, or she takes competitive sport seriously then I can deal with that.

    If I made a list that was in diametric opposition to this list (using the same gender-role based assumptions) about red flags for women to avoid in men I guarantee it would cause a shitstorm of mud-flinging and dispute right here, and with good reason, but this list is bordering on outright misogyny has been more praised than condemned. To the fly-on-the wall lurker this makes us look pretty bad hence I am cutting myself from the herd in this.
    Impressive! :-)

    Re: 10 red flags to keep in mind when meeting girls

    Quote Quote from nickb275 View Post
    Taken from College Times 10 Red Flags To Keep In Mind When Meeting Girls - CollegeTimes™ I thought men's health would be a good place for this, it goes with securing a healthy relationship. If possible.

    1. Tattoos – No, there are no exceptions. Tattoos are one of those things that look hot on a small minority of drop-dead gorgeous movie stars like Angelina Jolie, but in real life, less than 1% of women can actually pull it off in any form. (Variations include girls that have watched way too many Evanescence music videos, girls that had an ex-boyfriend die in a surfing accident and have branded his name onto their wrist, hipster bitches, white trash skanks, wannabe porn stars, etc.)
    2. Daddy Issues - This rears its head in all sorts of ways, so proceed with caution. Unfortunately, this is often a sad result of modern-day divorce statistics. (Variations include super clingy and/or insecure girls who tend to think every disagreement leads to someone being abandoned in a dumpster, girls that are desperate for attention from any and every male figure, girls who turn into femi-bitches a.k.a. femi-nazis at any sign of conflict, etc.)
    3. Make-up Extremities - This should go without saying, but the amount of males who ignore this one is absolutely astounding. More to the point, be wary of any girl who has obviously spent hours putting on “her face” before she went outside, or otherwise seems to have a quarter-inch of foundation on her face. At the same time, be wary of girls who are staunchly opposed to wearing make-up, or shaving, or other such politically-driven clichés.
    4. Too Many Guy Friends - To be honest, this one is related sometimes to #2, but sometimes not. This should be an automatic HUGE red flag. Avoid any girl with an uncanny amount of “guy friends” whether it be online social networks, in real life, or whatever. She’s either a total whore, has major daddy issues, has a general lack of social etiquette and/or discretion, or doesn’t seem to impress other females as being a worthwhile person.
    5. Obsessed with Online Social Networks - This isn’t going away any time soon, so its worth including. Watch out for women that seem overly obsessed with websites like Facebook, MySpace, Match.com, dating websites, etc. They are either super bored, super narcissistic, super insecure, super bitchy, super desperate, or total whores. Whichever it is, stay the hell away.
    6. Extremely “Anti-Trendy” - This speaks to the general direction that mankind as a whole has been headed for the last few decades, but it deserves a mention anyway. Unless you want a girl with a ton of baggage or who will end up annoying the shit out of you later on in life, then avoid the ladies who are out to “prove a point” every chance they get. (Variations include girls who refuse to drink Starbucks coffee because its too corporate, girls who seem to have 250 indie bands memorized when you ask them what music they like, girls who think marriage is “totally unnecessary… you know!?”, and all that disgusting jazz.
    7. Overly Forward - Again, this should be obvious to most men, but alas, most fellas do their thinking with the wrong head. The fact that a girl *confidently* walks up to you and starts jabbering like crazy doesn’t necessary mean that she’s slutty (more likely, she’s just a total wackjob), but let’s be honest, there aren’t too many dudes out there who warrant such easy attention from las chicas, except maybe Jack Bauer. Unless she shows at least a little bit of reserve, or at the very minimum, a bit of playfulness, then for the love of Christ, give it a second thought before you dive in.
    8. Hangs Out Quite Often At Bars, Clubs, Etc - Slutty, crazy, or depressed… with likely daddy issues. Take your pick. As a general rule of thumb, you shouldn’t really be picking out a wife at a bar. If you’re into one night stands, then go for it, but at least choose a girl who showed up with some of her other girl-friends.
    9. Extremely Clueless - Doesn’t know who the Vice President is? Red flag. Doesn’t know about that massive earthquake that happened in Haiti last week? Red flag. Doesn’t care to educate herself after her stupidity is pointed out? Red flag. Thinks it’s attractive to be stupid or pretend that she’s stupid? Red flag. Are you getting the point yet?…
    10. Easily Offended, Extremely Poubty, Etc - In short, avoid girls who can’t take a joke, don’t laugh much, love to act offended about nearly everything as some bizarre attempt at proving they are “enlightened”, or who actually do get offended or hurt by random bullshit all the time. Also, avoid girls who seem to have a different reaction each time to the same stimuli (“Wanna grab dinner?” … “Don’t talk to me!”), or who seem addicted to poubting, or who generally don’t seem to have a handle on their emotional reactions. Yah, that sure helps to narrow it down, huh?
    Honorable mention: Overly Athletic – Desires nothing more than to constantly attempt to show you up mountain climbing or weight-lifting? Run, run, as fast as you can, away from this type of female. She probably had some bitter encounter with a cop one day and is now a questionable lesbian.
    1. I don't mind tattoos so much. It depends on the woman, though. I personally prefer tattoos on redneck women or biker-chick types, rather than "goth" types. Even then, I don't like tattoos to be all over a woman's body, just on one arm and maybe the neck.

    2. If a woman has daddy issues, what's important to me is if she has been able to move on from them enough to handle a relationship with a man.

    3. I like women who are well-groomed. They look nice, but it's not overly obvious that they're wearing makeup. Clean shaven is always good, though.

    4. I really couldn't care less how many guy friends a woman has, as long as she is loyal and devoted to me. I should trust her to not cheat on me, unless she gives me a reason not to.

    5. I'm going to comment on the last one, about a woman being overly athletic. I don't take issue with the athletic part, just the part about a woman trying to "show me up". I think there's a difference between her doing that and just showing me what she is good at doing.

    Re: 10 red flags to keep in mind when meeting girls

    I'm personally not too impressed with such a cheesy article. It's hardly what one could even come close to calling science. In fact, if you ask me, the list is REALLY lame...I could construct a far more reliable list that that in five minutes flat. First impressions of people are not always right. If you meet someone who has a tattoo, for example, is that REALLY a red flag to avoid that person? I mean COME ON.

    "Civilization can only revive when there shall come into being in a number of individuals a new tone of mind, independent of the prevalent one among the crowds, and in opposition to it- a tone of mind which will gradually win influence over the collective one, and in the end determine its character. Only an ethical movement can rescue us from barbarism, and the ethical comes into existence only in individuals."

    I was referring to Dad S's opinion on the article. The article was pathetic at best.

    1. Tattoos
    Shit! My Circle A tatoo with a sickle and Mjollnir must be badwrong!

    2. Daddy Issues
    I love my father.

    3. Make-up Extremities
    I wear very little.

    4. Too Many Guy Friends
    Define too many. I have several guy friends that I do activist work with, so... yeah. Also: inb4 dad_savage comes back on this thread: super cool misandric story bro. This makes the assumption that men are sex craved robots that want to get in women's panties.

    5. Obsessed with Online Social Networks
    I rarely use my Facebook actually.

    6. Extremely “Anti-Trendy”
    Cool story, I bet women in alternative subcultures send up all kinds of red flags.

    7. Overly Forward
    Riveting tale chap, I bet you have a poor opinion of men too. I prefer to ask out my partners because it just feels right, that does not make me a whack job.

    8. Hangs Out Quite Often At Bars, Clubs, Etc
    Wow, women looking for a date must really be slutty.

    9. Extremely Clueless
    I'd rather be me. Thank you very much, which does mean I'm a bit of a klutz, but I'm far from stupid.

    10. Easily Offended, Extremely Poubty, Etc
    I'm not really easily offended, but I'm quick to call on another's bigoted bullshit.

    Honorable mention: Overly Athletic
    I enjoy jogging and softball, sue me.

    Who is reviving these old threads? My earlier attempts at humor were not met with enthusiasm before, I expect them to not go over as well many months later.

    Just look at it lightly, if you think I endorse this wholeheartedly, then it is still no skin off my back. I still get a chuckle from reading it. Being so serious about ones self is a red flag in itself.
