Comment: When will they learn (Score 3, Insightful) 92 92

Nobody is asking for a new material to build the phone out of. Nobody is asking for another gig of ram, or a bigger screen. What people ARE asking for is better battery life. Making a phone out of exotic materials and then pricing yourself out of the market is a dumb idea. The world doesn't need another luxury smartphone. It needs a better smartphone for the average user.

Comment: Re:What about low-income boys? (Score 1) 473 473

What you're trying to tell me here is that girls simply can't learn along side boys, which is complete and utter bullshit.

If you want girls to feel just as empowered as boys then you have to allow them to overcome the same obstacles. This continual "girls can do anything boys can do" while saying "girls require special treatment" doublespeak is fucking ridiculous and sad. It doesn't address the problem, assuming there even is one, it addresses a symptom.

Either they are capable of the same things, or they are not. Get off the fucking fence.
