Unnecessary “fillers” in our speech. I’d rather have “like” than up-talking, though (if we had to choose one, that is). Ewwww, up-talking. Then again, a combination of the two would render me homicidal maniac.
Like, did you ever notice? That, like, the speech patterns people, like, think are stupid? Are, like, commonly associated with, like, women?
And, like, there’s this thing? Where, like, women aren’t supposed to be, like, assertive? So they, like, qualify their speech? Because, like, we’re not supposed to, like, stand by our opinions?
1) humiliate women so they don’t feel qualified to speak authoritatively about anything
2) humiliate women for speaking in such a way that reflects how you treat her
3) laugh, you are superior because you don’t use words like “like.” It isn’t as if being a huge stupid asshole has ever made you worse than a woman who speaks with verbal tics.
The nail. It is hit on the head.
I don;t associate constantly saying “like” to women at all. I know plenty of guys who say “like” way too much as well. I had a problem with saying it while telling stories for a long time. It really does sound stupid when people say “like” or “um” or “ya know” in their speech a lot. Its a sing of a lack of communication skills. it sounds much more impressive if the speaker just pauses in their speech while they think of what to say next
I think the reason people think this add is an attack on women is simply because there is a women pictured in it. If i saw this while i still had a problem with saying “like” or “um” too much, it would be an effective add on me to motivate me to try to stop using filler. I wouldn’t see a picture of a girl and think its only targeted towards women.
The picture was taken without anyone knowing an apparition may have been caught on film, seeing as how the shape only appeared in the picture AFTER it was taken. No one was aware of a ghostly presence or strange activity when the photo was snapped. The picture was taken in Kramer, Pa., circa 1977. It has received moderate attention in local newspapers in the past.
I know who it is!
