Taylor Swift needs to lighten up.  She's made a career writing songs about her breakups.  I think Madeline Albright's quote was probably directed at more significant issues than a Tina Fey joke.

Um ok...but what are your thoughts about M. Albrights quote?

Don't believe in hell. One's actions creates good and bad karma.

Me either.....I love being barefoot, and oh how I love having a door opened and my chair pulled out for me.
Quoting FoodIsLife:


oh, ok :-) so simply answered. No, I am not. I look too good in an apron ;-) 

Quoting KamWorthy:

No that's not how I took it. I'm actually a Modernist as well. I was simply asking if you were a feminist, that's all.

There are times I agree with her statement...in the helping part, not necessarily the hell part.

I think moms should help other moms. I think women should help each other in the workplace until we are finally seen as equally capable (in general, some women employees suck). Help people when they need it.

I think Taylor Swift chose a poor example to use as Tina Fey didn't say anything bad (IMO). Awhile ago someone here posted a meme of TS vs Miley Cyrus which proved that Miley is in fact, more of an innocent than man eating TS. But I know that's not what this was about.

I thinks it's great that you were intelligent enough to comprehend that the Hell portion was not literal. Some weren't...lol! But should it be in effect, help anyone in the workplace who's not being treated fairly?

Thank you for the compliment!

Yes, anyone in a position to help someone else should. I think people tend to have a soft spot for people like them. For example, DS had a lousy 2nd grade teacher but as a fellow working mom, I cut her some slack because I knew she was having issues balancing everything. If I needed that help, i'd like to think another working mom would offer the same.

Why would I help a woman just because we have the same gender?
