using it as a stereotype for a real person makes no sense!

I know an IRL mpdg. She's super manic -- super happy, skipping everywhere, singing to herself, etc. most of the time -- and then when something crosses her she switches in an instant to slamming doors, drama, etc. One weekend she spent all day blowing bubbles on the sidewalk, waiting for people to walk by and then in a fit of whimsy waving bubbles all around them. The weekend before that she set out sidewalk chalk and got all these strangers to draw on the sidewalk and on the road. She's an art student and doesn't have to pay rent and is living the outgoing eccentric pipe-dream.

It's annoying as hell most of the time, unless I'm in an extremely good mood, which I hardly am ever.

That's not a personality, that's a mental disorder or personality disorder!

Guilty laugh that this p much nails my reaction to an absurdly large number of behavior.

I too have known some v mpdgish g's. Also otm re: Rabin; I was reading a bunch of those My Year of Flops and it was so horribly written! Like just super-obvious community college school paper arts section-quality "humor" but peppered with offensive throwaway jokes/generalizations

lol, one of the "related videos" on Abbbottt's link is Zooey D on Kimmel.

Anyway, some observations I've made on the MPDG's I've known that don't get translated into the movies:

  • Some are lesbians. Always have been, always will be.
  • They don't go after guys that are opposites in attempts to "change them". More often than not, they find a straight guy of similar inclination and lock them down to the degree of a common-law marriage with the odd case of eventual matrimony. Some of the most stable relationships I know involve these people.
  • If they haven't done the above, they may latch on to a gay guy and go through many of the motions of a romantic relationship minus sex and such. I have a MPDG pal who just went through a breakup-esque episode because her "boyfriend" (who, might I add, is in a committed same-sex relationship) had to move far away for work.
  • There are others that are just serious loners.

"real MPDG" sounds kind of like "real Stepin Fetchit"

anyway, I used buzzfeed for a while but they kinda have no quality control at all for some reason. I got tired of reading articles by bigoted idiots that had gotten buzzed up somehow.

I ask because, although I find this fairly amusing, I can't help the feeling that BMW expects us to laugh at the little woman -- when in fact pretty much anyone without significant motorsport experience would freaking out at least that hard.

Well, the guy wasn't being an arse, he was informative and never once tried the "This'll make her scream if i do THIS!" biz.

Rule of thumb: "Top Gear" would not do this, it's not 'sexist' enough.

I was playing a "School" themed TOTP2 to the girls, I've mentioned a couple of tracks' responses in other threads. Yesterday, this one came up and Alice was all "awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww......"

This morning, she found the above and we all laughed a bit. Then she found the original and played it in full, and we were all "can you stop now or we leave the room?"

friend sent me this story
http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/23/living/oprah-woman-work-skills/index.html?hpt=hp_bn11

comment of note: I think the way CNN and other feminist media outlets talk about women it sounds like they border on retarded. They have millions of organizations designed to help only them, numerous days and months on the calendar to remind them they matter, and CNN is licking their carpets every day. If women are as capable as men, why do they need all this help. The gender gap when researched correctly shows that men with kids out earn women with or without kids, and out earn men without kids. Maybe women don't get it that men in their prime are made for workin. Sorry feminists, can't blame discrimination for everything.
