She's doing well. She's managed to find a great group with parent coaches who won't put up with any crap from boys on the team. It's unfortunate that she had to find a group outside her school, but such is life.

Whenever i see you poking around i always wonder how your daughter is doing. Your comment regarding her and her dealing with boys in her group project has always stuck with me.

Happy anniversary! Today marks year number 9 since you first became a Sifter and the community is better for having you. Thanks for your contributions!

what does they say (at the same time) at 51secs?

I gotta say, I love how emotionless these guys always are. Rocket blows up; not a word is said about it other than "launch teams, be advised: stay at your stations."

Not even a single utterance like "Well, shit."

No, you don't get it, sweetpea.

It is more than a metaphor. It is real, it is a psychological truth that grows deeper as she talks.

It's all good though. If it isn't for you, it isn't for you.

Ickster said:

Right, so it's a metaphor. I guess I get it, I just didn't find the technique to add much to the huge impact of what she was saying and how she obviously felt.

bareboards2 says...

Women are conditioned to hide. So this is a physical as well as emotional "disrobing." At least, that is how I interpreted it.

There are other women who have exposed their differences fully as they answered questions. Those vids follow the same format.

One of those murky, psychological things that either strike a chord with you or don't. I think.

This struck a chord with me.

Ickster said:

I thought what she had to say was interesting, and I would've been fine with just her sitting on the stool talking. I'm not 100% sure I understand the point of the disrobing--I mean, I get it from a metaphorical standpoint, but from an actual point of view, it doesn't seem to accomplish much.
