The Year 1999

  • Two students go on a shooting spree at Columbine High School in Colorado. They kill 13 people and then themselves.
  • While the world parties like it's 1999 (if you read that and thought, "Huh?" ask your 'rents about a dude named Prince), computer geeks freak out about the "Y2K Bug." It turns out that the world didn't end. Go figure.

You don't see the boys on this website getting all riled up by the male bashing that's been going on in recent years. It's because everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Even if I was trying to be offensive and offend people (which I wasn't) I'm allowed to do that because in America we have this thing called freedom of speech. Freedom of speech because your SUPPOSED TO SAY THINGS THAT ARE NICE  Well, actually, no. Although I dislike people saying rude things to one another, freedom of speech allows it. The only things freedom of speech does not allow are harmful things such as death threats, which Shawn's post wasn't even remotely close to. I also wouldn't personally consider his post "rude" either, but hey, that's just me.

And not even a very offensive joke at that. Of course I knew you were joking. I can read, can't I? What I find hilarious, though, is that people think I wasn't. I thought I made it pretty clear that I wasn't being serious. Am I seriously that good a troll? Your joke was nowhere near offensive. That stereotype is one I find very funny. The only people I know who believe women belong in the kitchen are members of the old-fashioned, Southern-half of my family. But even they don't expect it, they just think it. It's dying out; no one really cares if a woman stays at home and cooks or not. The fact that the radical feminists think that all men still feel this way is very amusing.
