I read the comments more as dry sarcasm about that one single dude than trying to pin it as ‘all men are stupid’, but we all read media differently! You’re 100% right it’s useless to argue since the actual prank had nothing to do with gender.
I think that the same dry sarcasm interpretation could go with the gifs too then, as they weren’t pointing out specifically that this is about all men and all women, just saying. :’> (Though honestly I think so too that it was about all women and all men at least in the gifs.)
weenyah replied to your post “You’re right, you know. That whole elevator post is so full of bullshit it hurts. With the speed the tiles were falling, you’re dead anyway. And that railing won’t help because it looks like just a ‘stub’ or a rectangle sticking out of the wall rather than something you can hang on to. And people have different reactions whether male or female or other, so the only ‘correct’ way to do this is to test this on several men and women and then get the stats, which would still be a little incorrect.”
ofc none would actually survive that, the surprise from losing the floor underneath is too sudden. I reblogged the post only ‘cause it was circling around to somehow prove that women are stupid and men aren’t, and comments countered that attitude c’:
The reason I reblogged it had nothing to do with which of them would die, because as you said, they’d both die. The reason I reblogged it was because I found the gifs trying to imply that women are stupid and men aren’t, whereas the comments below tried to do the opposite yet still the exact same thing: trying to prove that men are stupid and women aren’t. I thought it was utterly ridiculous to even argue about it, as they were both acting on instinct and it had nothing to do with gender.
I have pretty much forgotten Swedish as I just haven’t used it in years. Today at work I had to work with child actors who spoke both Finnish and Swedish, but one of them could only understand Swedish. In the beginning of the day I mainly just listened to them talking with the other make up artist in Swedish and I myself couldn’t do that as I wasn’t always sure about the discussion they were having.
It’s funny though how quickly your mind can adjust to the situation and after a couple hours of listening to them the only fully Swedish child asked me if I spoke Swedish. “Ganska lite, jag tror att jag har glömt så mycket.” It didn’t really matter if I could speak perfectly or not, at least I could communicate with her and after that she talked with me quite a lot. You have no idea how nice it really was to be able to use a language you thought you had forgotten for good. I really hope I’ll get to work in Swedish again in the future, which is very likely to happen as Finland is a bilangual country. Maybe I could revive my language memory.
Phrase of the day: “Tycker du att det är bra?”

Yes, thank you. I find it so ridiculous that people are trying to justify someone’s logic and dismiss someone else’s over something like that.
