The real reason women freeze their eggs

I’ve always resented the dating games and the gender stereotyping rules you’re supposed to follow to get a partner. If a relationship isn’t based on honesty and open communication, why would you want it? And in the meanwhile, millions of women and men who want love and connectivity continue to be single and lonely… and women who want children might end up having to do it on their own.

Great article from The Guardian.

Men in yoga! :-)

My gym (Sats Elixia) has a number of training videos online for members who want to do training at home, with everything from tabata, cross training, barre to pilates.

In most of the videos there are three persons demonstrating the exercising, normally with mixed sexes. But the yoga actually has three men! If you have ever attended a yoga (or pilates) class, I’m sure you have seen that most of the participants are  women. Men might perhaps think that yoga is not tough and hard enough for them. So perhaps the choice of instructors was to dispel gender stereotypes?

In any case, this was a nice and refreshing change.

Funny movie clips… but sad

So, someone posted this video clip on Facebook. At first glance it looks funny and upbeat. But then… count the number of male versus female dancers. Just do it. Especially how many of the clips which aren’t of large groups dancing. There are almost no female dancers. How come? Is it because female characters are supposed to be pretty and cute, and not do goofy movements? Or is it because most main characters in movies are men? Or did the person who made this mash up only focus on the male dancers? No matter which one it is… it’s sad.

Bullshit of the day

  

Yeah, cause a man who belittles your feelings is every lady’s dream come true… 

All I’m saying is that I hope this doesn’t set the standard for the rest of the book. You’re hereby warned.
