You'd be surprised how hard that is to do.

It isn't hard at all. Literally millions of women manage it every single day without issue. The sheer amount of female managers, teachers etc disproves this.

It's not like you can't be assertive without being seen as a b****

Of course you can. See above. I've provided more of an argument than just reiterating my beliefs, how about you do the same?

however the problem is you can't really control how other people see you or really think about you

That's a problem? That's not a problem, that's what goes along with free will. The problem, apparently, is that you are too worried about what people think about you.

Even the slightest bit of force can be meet with harsh backlash that most women don't want to deal with for a number of reasons.

This sounds like your talking from having formed opinions on the internet and not real world experience. Like seriously, where did you get that from? That is absolute nonsense.

I work for a very large corporation, and there are a huge number of female managers, directors, partners etc. There are plenty of women who are not discriminated against for doing their jobs competently. It's not hard to find other examples of women being assertive with no backlash.

Not to say discrimination and sexism are not issues, but you are making mountains out of molehills, extrapolating far more than is reasonable without a shred of data to back it up.

Even the slightest bit of force can be meet with harsh backlash that most women don't want to deal with for a number of reasons.

I quoted this again to make a second point. "The slightest bit of force", so basically any resistance? So if someone disagrees or pushes back, women shouldn't have to deal with that, "for a number of reasons"? Sorry, but if you want to be in a position of authority part of that is proving yourself when challenged. Which is also something literally millions of women can do without issue..it isn't complicated.

And all you wanted was some god damn mutual respect.

Respect isn't earned by whining. Respect is earned by doing. The women who do, have respect. The women who whine about being considered a bitch instead of just taking charge don't.

As for your example they are fictional characters. They are written and portrayed whatever way the writer wants them to be and are not accurate representations of life. .

Oh please. Fictional characters written by humans who act exactly like a number of people do in the real world. Are you really saying there are no women with similar personalities to the fictional charaacters I named? Because that is ridiculous and I can find a number of real world examples if you need. Let's see. How about KimK vs JLaw?

The best part of the episode for me was cat talking about women never being allowed to be angry. It felt very real and i was a powerful moment. I cant just get mad or be as assertive as men because if I do people think I'm being a B****.

I see that line touted a lot. It's only the women who get angry in a b***** way that get called a b****. Most women who get angry or assert themselves have no issue...

It get touted out a lot because it's true. Most women do face this issue. It's real and it happens all the time. We're meant to play nice and never lose are cool never be to pushy. Here's an article. It's about Jenifer Lawrence not wanting to come off as bossy and spoiled. Women in all walks of life feel like asserting or really fighting for what we rightfully deserve is going to be looked at in a negative light. So we don't in order to not rock the boat.

yeah when men do it they are called assholes or bitches too depending on what type of freak out they have.....

That line for a guy is a lot higher. They get more leeway to order people around then women do.

I think it's more of an excuse more often than not. It's the type of nonsense hatesites like TMS constantly tout instead of actually focusing on real issues. No doubt it affects some women, and there is still rampant sexism and jerks who will be dismissive or worse troll by saying stuff like that, but if you really think you can't be assertive without being seen as a b**** maybe the problem is in how you are being assertive...because many women pull it off without issue. Mom from futurama....deserving....sam carter from sg1...not so. See the difference?

Matt sticking to Hell's Kitchen and yet constantly talking about saving his city and sticking to those few blocks drives me insane.

Actually, that's pretty decent. If DC had something similar, I might pay for it. $5/month for a netflix type thing is pretty reasonable.

It sounds similar to Asimov's stuff set in the early years of the federation, with the spacers and such.

@muyjingo: But there is nothing wrong with ending a sentence with a preposition in certain contexts. In this context, there is no problem from doing so.

The only grammar issue I see all the time is using a singular person (he/she) with "their" instead of him or her.

I'm not going to argue with you on that point, I'd just have to look it up. My point was that the posts don't get proofread, even to a cursory level. They often contain typos, spelling mistakes and ill-formed sentences, such as "I like Superman, if not more, than the next person." from essential comics on 11/11 post. For a site whose primary content is written articles, I don't find that acceptable, especially when they ask for money. But then, I don't really come to the site for the articles. I just thought I'd point out that there are legitimate issues...

Darth Vader follows a lead to where Luke Skywalker is currently at.

Did you just end your sentence with a preposition?

It's not being a GN. The writing on this site has some pretty serious issues sometimes, and it's appalling since they actually ask people to pay for it. How about some basic quality control and editing?
