I'm signed up on a site where I get invited to take part in research studies by universities (undergrads, Phd students, general research) and for the most part it's really interesting.

But today I did a survey about 'working women' (the title made me laugh).....and again, even from people you'd think would know better, all the questions assumed that 'working woman' = ' working mother' and how guilty or otherwise do you feel about working late, attending networking events etc and the impact of working on 'the family'.

Often I get the opportunity to make some comment, not for this one though....which may be just as well, by the time I'd finished the exercise I was about to rip these 'researchers' a new one. I worked for 35 years without ever once feeling guilty about working late.

FFS, when will people understand that carnivore does not = omnivore :evil:

Why the fuck do people think that including meat in your diet makes you a carnivore? I don't have dirty great long canines or eat an exclusively meat based diet. I don't drag dead carcasses of antelope up trees, or hunt zebra down as part of a pack.

I swear people are getting stupider.

^^^ It's not just your area; I've had to point this out multiple times.
