As you can see, it isn't really friends only yet, but if you want to read any of my new entries in this oh-so-intresting (lie) life of mine, or any of the really old ones you should comment to be added. My entries are rather sporadic and eclectic.
Don't let the Friends Only sign discourage you. Ever since I hit around 50 friends I decided that if you can find me I will friend you. (And you obviously have found me.) Unless I have no clue who you are and you don't reply, or I have a really good reason not to do so.
By the way, I'm Kes (or Kessica).

I've noticed lately, that I do a funny thing. When I get to a door before someone, I hold it open for them. Some people consider this good manners.
Now, the way I understand it, it's also good manners to walk through this door and say "Thank you". Granted, if you don't say thank you, it's fine. And yes, it is a little bit of a pet peeve of mine when someone insists on pushing the door open when I'm clearly holding it, but I suppose if that's your thing, go for it.
What I do not understand is why I am running into more and more males who flat out refuse to walk through a door I am holding for them. Nor am I any more capable of understanding why someone would literally push me through said doorway so I could go first. So far the only explanations I have received fall along the lines of "I'm a gentleman" or "That's not how I was raised".
I would like to inform you that I am not a lady. I do not know how to dance, do needlepoint or sing. I am simply a human being who is trying to be nice to you.
I am also not a crazy feminist. If you were to hold the door for me (without pushing me out of the way to do so) I would walk through and thank you. I am, however, a feminist (to where I believe in gender equality) and saying that me holding a door for you goes against your morals is not a fair argument because me giving up the door for you to hold it and let me go through first goes against mine. And, I don't think I'm being silly in saying that your request is a little more unreasonable than mine is.
To take a line from those men who rant about women who yell at them for holding open a door "I was just trying to be polite, so STFU, bitch."
I also understand that this rant doesn't apply to most guys, and that's awesome; keep up the good work.
Because honestly, this isn't just TV, these are writers, and this is media controlling* corporate America trying to get away with more.
*Have any of you seen the news about this? It would totally help if the writers weren't striking against the people who owned the news media outlets, but so far the most positive non-independant thing I've seen so far is about how two striking writers met at the picket lines and are now dating. >.>
I know a lot of you keep up with the news and politics and the rights we have as citizens of this country etc. I'm sure some of you (those of you who don't avoid Fox) may have heard about University of Delaware's "Forced diversity program" or whatever they're calling it.

I think this is crazy, and I think it's even crazier after speaking with my RA friend at UDel.
