On Interview with Filmmaker Izzy Chan: "Have we adjusted our expectations of what a man needs to bring to the table?"
[Straight guy with job here] I think people also need to remember that unemployment is incredibly depressing for lots of people -- Lord knows that I've been through periods of that too -- and maybe even rougher for men, because even nowadays in our culture Job = Self-Worth/Sex Appeal. (How many male pop-culture sex symbols _don't_ have power jobs?) The unemployed guys who don't wash dishes are probably not lazy, they're miserable and depressed; doesn't really help in the short-term, I guess, but it's true.
@OhMarie It's cool if you pull back the hair you have left into a scraggly ponytail, right? I mean, so the hair's still there, it's just in a different place...
The bald-guys-don't-get laid thing is actually true? The bald guys I know get tons of action (although maybe that's because they're in their late '30s vs. late '20s). I mean, Jason Statham?
On Young Adults
I hate to sound all uphill-both-ways-in-the-snow, but is being financially independent when you're 22 _really_ impossible, or just pretty damn unpleasant? There are still fast-food jobs, pizza-delivery jobs, all kinds of other crappy gigs out there, and that's how a lot of Americans feed themselves.
On Young Adults
I graduated from a top-twenty college in 1995 -- during a pretty shitty job-hunting period, although granted better than nowadays -- and supported myself for a year as an office temp, making $7 an hour and living in a crime-infested slum in Richmond, Va. My parents would have welcomed me back home in a second.
And the thing is, I'm a pretty damn lazy person -- it's just that the ability to get blind drunk and have sex whenever I wanted to was important enough to me that I was willing to live in poverty. Kids these days!
@Emby Ah, that's it!
Dude mixed up his X and Y in the intro, right? Or I'm going crazy (both?)
@DH@twitter Fashion Guys. They care. Probably not too much fun to date though.
@nevermind bingo! "I was so worried you were going to cheat on me that I cheated on you!"
Also, I know _very_ few guys who give a rat's ass about women's hair either way, unless it's like lice-ridden dreadlocks or something.
