Aren't there enough manginas as it is?
So there's like this spray? That, if I squirted it up my nose, it would make me empathize with other people? Like, as much as Rielle empathized with Elizabeth?
No thanks. I find empathy gets in the way of clear thinking.
"I took my troubles down to Madame Rue You know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth She's got a pad down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine Sellin' little bottles of Love Potion Number Nine I told her that I was a flop with chics I've been this way since 1956 She looked at my palm and she made a magic sign She said "What you need is Love Potion Number Nine" She bent down and turned around and gave me a wink She said "I'm gonna make it up right here in the sink" It smelled like turpentine, it looked like Indian ink I held my nose, I closed my eyes, I took a drink I didn't know if it was day or night I started kissin' everything in sight But when I kissed a cop down on Thirty-Fourth and Vine He broke my little bottle of Love Potion Number Nine"--Love Potion Number Nine (Lieber/Stoller)
On the other hand, if it will mitigate my reduced social approachability, well then by all means.
And be miserable whenever I have to spend time with my family? No thanks.
three or four glasses of whiskey can make a guy pretty empathetic too. Let's bring back everyday drinking (in moderation of course).
I'd do it, but I just don't care enough to do so.
Next there will be an inhaler to give us the effects of PMS so we can know what real empathy is.
I know a few people I'd like to put oxytocin up the noses of. I wonder if it would work as well as the Point of View GUN from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy? One of the effects of oxytocin is to promote milk letdown in lactating women. They might have to work some bugs out if they try it on men.Toy
You mean this will turn us all into Phil Donahue?Those death panels may start to look good soon.
If Obama uses this nasal inhalant, perhaps we can place the US Constitution within reach, so that he might give a shit about it.
It's odd to me that they see "empathy" as leading inevitably to a desire for compromise or friendship. Far from it. A deep understanding of someone's emotional vulnerabilities and attachments is equally useful for tearing them down. Many women are very good at that, as are some men.
No thanks. I find empathy gets in the way of clear thinking.This is why nature made us the way we are. SOMEone has to have the ability to take the initiative and kill that nasty gross spider without going ....ick ick ick....and feeling bad about it afterwards.I don't want a man oozing with empathy and girly emotions. Thank you very much.
I'll pass.I forgot my older brother's birthday last week and, y'know guys, big deal? Mailed him a card late and he said thanks.If I take the spray I'll be hysterical for a month.And if he takes the spray he won't talk to me for a month.Ahh, testicles - is there anything they can't do?
I have no doubt that this could be counteracted by a dose of testosterone. Or, maybe just some other parts of female behavior. Part of my problem here is that the female is again being defined as normal, and the male as abnormal. Nothing against women, but oxytocin didn't put a man on the moon, PCs on all of our desks, win WWII. Rather, testosterone was the primary hormone involved there.
Women want to be cuddled? According to Game Theory their essential masochism longs for a guy who will treat them like dirt. I'm only the messenger, folks, but Game works.
BHO is cuddling with union thugs and Wall Street mercantilists ...too much oxytocin?Perhaps oxytocin encourages nurturing a newborn, but also allows the lamb to lay down with the lion.
Not to be used by mixed martial arts contestants?
I don't even care about my own feelings. That's real "cruel neutrality".
Men would start noticing other men wearing the same outfit.
"I don't even care about my own feelings."Neither do I.
LOL, get a group of women together and introduce the topic of another woman (not present). Sit back and watch the empathy flow.
According to Game Theory their essential masochism longs for a guy who will treat them like dirt.Odd, I seem to be lacking this "essential masochism" (which according to the above sentence is not just an intrinsic part of women but an independent entity in the woman's psyche that can in and of itself long for certain guys). I'm for treating guys with respect and being treated with respect in return. My friends seem to feel and behave similarly. Perhaps we're sharing those crazy female hormones and synchronizing the timing of our cycles too.
I'm for treating guys with respect and being treated with respect in return.The fly in the above ointment is that it's a rare woman who respects herself. Ergo the attractiveness for women of the cruel man.
Canards are to commentslike school figures are to figure skating.
When my son was born, I got hit by a massive does of oxytocin. I happened to be in the middle of a management course on attitudes when he was born and my scores changed dramatically.At least for a couple of weeks.
The fly in the above ointment is that it's a rare woman who respects herself.For sure there are women who lack self-respect, I won't argue with you on that. But how rare is a self-respecting woman? I'm not asking to be facetious; I'm wondering is it in all circles, among all character types, or from all kinds of upbringing and value systems? Is lack of self-respect being properly differentiated from normal human insecurities that people in general feel?Among guys as well, there are for sure those who struggle with lack of self-respect. Does 'The Game' try to help guys who either have the extreme problem of lack of self-respect, or the less extreme issues of frustration or insecurity? In general, acting in a cruel or arrogant way isn't a good long-term solution for any of that; arrogance and cruelty are weaknesses of character - they ultimately corrupt character and also leave a person vulnerable. It's difficult to confuse arrogance with true self-assurance, with the kind of self-confidence that is real strength.(But then again I've never read the Game, so I honestly don't know what it tells guys; I'm only going by what you've suggested here.)
Will the spray make me hog the blankets like my wife, too?
Where is the nasal spray that makes me irrestible to women? Where in the hell is science's values these days? Is there seriously any money in empathy?
"Where is the nasal spray that makes me irrestible to women?"Same place those x-ray glasses are.
Same place those x-ray glasses areJust need to take the flying car to the drug store to pick it up.And really? Where's my damned flying car? They (?) have been predicting it's arrival for what? a century?Flying car, spray that drives women hot for you. Not necessarily in that order.
As long as the spray doesn't make me listen.
Why not just go the easy route and become a lesbian?
I never thought oxycontin made women very cuddly at all.
The use of female hormone therapy among the submissive males is not new. It goes back to science o the creation of eunuchs by tyrants at the dawn of history. Why men esire to re-engineer other men all over the world to look powerful is the mystery here.
maybe i'm just a drug addict, but i'm willing to give this stuff a snort. i've taken a few of the more popular psychotropic pills and have found the 'everything is just fine' state of mind they induce to be pretty pleasant and even fun. being easy-going doesn't necessarily mean surrendering your testicles.
Would it make going shopping easier?
After all these years perfecting the art of not caring?
Speaking about the "wise Latina", the GOP response to her was incredibly inept. Or, at least it was incredibly inept if there goal is what's in the U.S.'s best interest. If their goal is just to avoid problems and work for the GOP, then I guess it was OK.Rather than doing the smart thing and focusing on her involvement with two far-left groups that support illegal activity (the PRLDEF and the National Council of La Raza), practically the entire GOP/conservative/blogger response was that of an even more befuddled Hannity. And, of course, you had GOP hacks like Orin Kerr who "put up a good fight" against her nomination, if you know what I mean.Seriously now: she was a member of a group that gave an award to someone who'd proposed genocide. And, despite all that, the GOP incompetents - including major r/w bloggers - were completely unable to even give her a run for her money.Maybe one day soon the leaders of the supposed opposition to BHO will all give us a break and finally go Galt. Don't worry: we'll make out OK.
More misandry. When will this stop/
hi friend...i really appreciate wiyh your above content.but there something for u....i.eThe Oxytocin drug is a safe and potent supplement based on the naturally occurring hormone Oxytocin. It has far reaching benefits for the body and mind, including the ability to enhance orgasm experiences. Oxytocin for men assists emotional bonding as well as desire, and an Oxytocin orgasm for women is especially enhanced.http://www.antiaging-systems.com/145-oxytocin-love-drugit'z really workzzz.
