A Message To Women From A Man: You Are Not “Crazy”

You’re so sensitive. You’re so emotional. You’re defensive. You’re overreacting. Calm down. Relax. Stop freaking out! You’re crazy! I was just joking, don’t you have a sense of humor? You’re so dramatic. Just get over it already!

Sound familiar?

If you’re a woman, it probably does.

Do you ever hear any of these comments from your spouse, partner, boss, friends, colleagues, or relatives after you have expressed frustration, sadness, or anger about something they have done or said?

When someone says these things to you, it’s not an example of inconsiderate behavior. When your spouse shows up half an hour late to dinner without calling—that’s inconsiderate behavior. A remark intended to shut you down like, “Calm down, you’re overreacting,” after you just addressed someone else’s bad behavior, is emotional manipulation—pure and simple.

This article is so true and so relevant to life. Seeing these problems in life and human interaction can be awful, but truth always prevails.

Misc.: Space! Mars!

The Curiosity Rover’s First Color Photo of Mars

The Curiosity Rover’s First Color Photo of Mars

This picture is awesome.
And we landed a rover on Mars; that is pretty awesome.
Yay NASA! YAY SPACE!
Also, this comment is funny (via Gawker): “This is the first color photo of Mars we’re getting? An Instagram of a mountain? Is Curiosity taking photos with a RAZR? This is the worst photo I’ve ever seen. Fire everyone at NASA.”
