Yo - honest question...how does a feminist manage to remain for years on a board dominated by misogynists, and rate 16 pages about one date with some d00d we don't even know?
Kara could post about domestic violence and get four replies...all snarky. Kara posts about a new style of bra and guys are breaking out that family size bottle of Jergen's from Costco and goin' to town. She doesn't even post photos...but she'll drop bi-curious innuendo...leaving the crowd in thrall...single or committed...doesn't matter...everyone wants to be in Kara's sack of potatoes...
Kara is here for the power. She's been waving it in front of our faces for how long? Just letting us sniff it...torture games...
It's cute. Just know I see through it all. Don't lump me in with all the other lames.

Napoleon, Stalin and Franco had more in common than being tyrants and dictators. They were all rather on the short side and helped to engender the belief that men of below average height were more aggressive than their taller peers.
But now the so-called Napoleon complex or Short Man Syndrome - which determines that 80 per cent of the population believe that small men are angry - has been put to the test by scientists who have established that, on average, it is tall men who are more likely to become the aggressor in conflicts. The research is likely to be welcomed by shorter men, who have complained that they face discrimination and more challenges in life than their taller compatriots. Research has shown that shorter men tend to earn less and are deemed less attractive to women, although the three-times married Tom Cruise might disagree with the estimate that for every inch shorter you are, 5 per cent fewer women will find you attractive.
In research conducted for a BBC3 programme, Fuck Off, I'm Small, the University of Central Lancashire told 10 men below 5ft tall, and 10 men of average height, that they were going to be tested for their physical attributes, reaction times and hand-eye co-ordination. In fact, they were participating in an aggression experiment called the Chopstick Game, the world's first test for Short Man Syndrome. Paired in different heights, they duelled across tables with wooden sticks, but one of the subjects had been briefed to deliberately provoke the other by hitting him across the knuckles.
Contrary to Short Man Syndrome expectations, heart monitors attached to the participants showed that it was taller men who reacted more aggressively.
Dr Mike Eslea, the psychologist from the university who led the research said: "The results were consistent with the view that Small Man Syndrome is a myth. When people see a short man being aggressive, they are likely to think it is due to his size, simply because that attribute ... grabs their attention.
"But really it makes no more sense to say that, for example, Dennis Wise, [the footballer], is aggressive because he is small, than it would to say that Robbie Savage [also a footballer] is aggressive because he has blond hair." Wise, manager of Leeds United, was a player with Millwall, Chelsea and Wimbledon, and noted for his aggressive presence. Savage, who plays for Blackburn Rovers, is also known for being a forceful player.
