Here is 3 questions that I found them most interesting:
“What’s the most popular diet these days?”
Needless to say, diet has been ubiquitous among women, even though a girl who has a perfect body shape, they are still obsessed by their weight. My point is, if you don’t love yourself inside, there is no diet on this Earth that is going to make you feel good, so just stop wasting your time.I would just like to say, as an African woman that I believe the diet that we need is really to remove the crazy belief that there is anything wrong with a nice backside.No, I am teasing about that. There is nothing wrong with a woman of size. That is what I am trying to say. Women, celebrate your body, for God’s sake. Stop running around starving. You are making yourselves and other people miserable.
“What has changed now that women run the world?”
Well, That must be a better world, I guess. At least in some ways. Despite the fact that it is 2013, women are still being traditionally regarded as homemakers and caregivers. Women have the power to refuse and get rid of these stereotypes and, as a result, receive immense praise for such things. Let’s see how men renowned men said about this:
“Most of America’s prosperity was created using only about 50% of its talent — the men.” Billionaire Warren Buffet said, being confident that the country will prosper as more and more women excel in the workforce.
“Women rule the world. It’s not really worth fighting because they know what they’re doing. Ask Napoleon. Ask Adam. Ask Richard Burton or Richie Sambora. Many a man has crumbled.” – Jon Bon Jovi
“Is dating boring, now that humans reproduce asexually?”
Such a huge question. I’m not adept at biology or humanity, but interested in dating though. I would say It wouldn’t be boring at all, as long as we enjoy ourselves and appreciate our partners. Reproduction is not something that help us to maintain a relationship or to have a fantastic love life.
