      One can quickly surmise what a problem the original Starbuck created for the re-imaginators. Starbuck was all charm and humor and flirting without an angry bone in his womanizing body. Yes, he was definitely “female driven,” but not in the politically correct ways of Re-imagined Television. What to do, wondered the Re-imaginators? Keep him as he was, with a twinkle in his eye, a stogie in his mouth and a girl in every galaxy? This could not be.

      The best minds in the world of un-imagination doubled their intake of Double Soy Latte’s as they gathered in their smoke-free offices to curse the day that this chauvinistic Viper Pilot was allowed to be. But never under-estimate the power of the un-imaginative mind when it encounters an obstacle (character) it subconsciously loathes. ”Re-inspiration” struck. Starbuck would go the way of most men in today’s society. Starbuck would become “Stardoe.”

      my goodness. pretty much everything is an anti-male conspiracy plot to you, isn't it? my husband is very quick to point out bad portrayals of men in the media, and apparently he completely missed the misandry in BSG (he's the one who actually was pushing me to watch it).

      what do you mean that divorce "doesn't work"?

      when ron paul ran in the last primaries, my husband was helping with the polling station. we personally knew of many people who voted for Paul, and pretty much expected him to win our district (this was in an extremely small county in ND) . apparently NO ONE in our district voted for him. IIRC, this happened in polling stations throughout the country.

            • and here's why i can't take this seriously. from the perspective of "dalrock", the reason a woman divorces is so she can have an "endless supply" of mates. some women divorce because they don't like their husband and don't want to live with him anymore. IMO, if the prospect of being single for the rest of your life is a much rosier picture than putting up with your spouse's shit, then you're a good candidate for divorce. i don't think anyone should enter that prospect without realizing that most people don't remarry.

              how old are the subjects in the AARP study?
              oh, this probably answers my question: "AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization for people age 50 and over." do you think that applies to people who are much younger?

                What divorce fantasy movies & entertainment show is that most people will find happiness with another mate after divorce

                • so how does a study on the remarriage rates of older people show that most women will not find happiness with another mate after divorce? personally if i divorced, i would not seek to remarry.

                    I misspoke, divorce fantasy typically shows them getting remarried, but women do face a more uphill battle than men do due to their diminishing value on the market

                    • according to your first link in the last post, 76% of people who divorce believe it was the right choice after the fact.

                      you have to remember that this study is talking about people in midlife and older. it is inaccurate to say that women are unlikely to be happy after a divorce based on what you've cited, partially because "women" includes women like myself who apparently still have a lot of "value" on the "market." based on the study you cited, it doesn't seem like either men nor women fare that well after divorce. i don't see a clear delineation showing women have a lower "market value" then men.

                        I figured this kind of thing would come up. You need to realize that there are two kinds of ways to use the word "bitch." One is from an insecure and butt-hurt position after getting emotionally trounced or otherwise defeated by a woman. The other is from a powerful and dominant position that says, "You're being silly and I am disinclined to put up with your horseshit at this time." Bitch in that context is such a liberating notion for a couple of generations of men that have been taught that supplication to female whims is some kind of virtue of manliness. Bitch is used righteously, not antagonistically.

                            • so much revisionist bullcrap

                              Yeah, our forefathers who were the early settlers probably got along by settling in marriage as well as in a new land - and our foremothers probably settled for even less happiness! Why people glorify a hard agricultural, slum, and sweat-shop life in which mere mean survival, illnesses, early deaths, and poverty necessarily took priority over seeking happiness in marriage, has always puzzled me. Keep in mind that divorce was less accepted then, but wife-beating and abuse was accepted and kept private as a family matter. If that's what you settlers want, go for it all the way; don't do it only half-assed. If you're divorced, you've already blown it. You should have settled like the real settlers did!

                              • so velocity, you're telling me that all women are bitches (in the "nonreactive" definition that grumpy gives)?

                                this all comes back to what i said earlier; you're globalizing your subjecting experiences.
