Well, on a positive note, we saw the movie "Friends With Kids" today and really enjoyed it.

Since we're talking the men/women relationship thing.

are women really like that or is it a Teevee parody of women?

He only says positive things about himself around his children? Dinner conversation must be SCINTILLATING

A., I get the point you're making, but my Dad, my 82 year old pops, has for the entire time I've been aware of him, put himself down. If he goes to the wrong channel on the TV, he'll say something like "You dumbshit Smith, can't you do anything right?" variations on that ALL. THE. FUCKING. TIME. It wearying and depressing.

There is nothing about being a feminist that automatically makes you a contemptuous, disrespectful bag of fuck

I like the phrase "Bag of Fuck." It matches well with the phrase my friends and I drunkenly came up with one day: "An Incomplete Jug of Fuck."

" I have always made it a point to only say positive or ‘true’ things about myself,"

Couldn't agree more that dinner conversations must be scintillating. But by the sentence implying a certain equality of "positive" and "true," I tend to wonder about narcissism.

My bf and I have a rule about such things -- whenever one or other of us makes an unwarranted self-deprecating comment, the other one says "Stop putting down my girl/boyfriend." Sometimes, self-deprecation can be just positive reinforcement for low self-esteem.
