Heavyweights 6 through 10

6. Jack Johnson: at ~6'1 and 208lbs he would be small by today's standards but was so fast and skilled that I don't see his lack of size hurting him too bad, or at all actually. Great fighter but since fighters back then basically sucked he had pretty weak opposition. He reminds me a lot of a bigger, stronger and faster version of Jersey Joe Walcott who gave an aged Joe Louis fits and had Rocky Marciano beat until getting clobbered by a huge right in the 13th round (which was the same round that Louis caught him in as well, 13 was definately an unlucky number for Jersey Joe).

7. Lennox Lewis: 6'5 240lbs. Big and very strong with crushing power in his right hand. Didn't really get the respect he was due until the Holyfield fights and the Holyfield he beat was past his prime but Lewis is still an all time great fighter. Great longevity at the top.

8. Sonny Liston: 6'0 1/2 212lbs. Big, scary, huge fists, long reach and a great jab, this guy absolutely cleaned out the division in the late 50's early 60's and punctuated his run with two crushing 1st round kayo's of Floyd Patterson.

9. Jack Dempsey: 6'1 187lbs. I really didn't want to put a guy this small and with such shitty comp on the list but I don't think this is a ridiculous rank for him. He had the ability to fight in a lot of different styles and beat some good big guys in Jess Willard and Angel Firpo in addition to absolutely destroying every white fighter in the division on his way up.

10. Joe Frazier: 5'11 205lbs. It's the loss to Foreman that really hurts his legacy but his other accomplishments are so great that he needs to be on this list. Foreman was a terrible match up for him. The other guys on this list could have all found a way to beat Foreman (I'm not saying they would, but it's possible), but if Frazier fought Foreman 100 times he would get knocked out within the first 3 rounds 100 times. Still a hell of a fighter though.

Rocky (Marciano) does not make this list as a basically view him as a less effective version of Smokin' Joe. I love the Rock, but I don't see him in the top 10.

p.s.: I'm pretty confident in having picked the 10 best heavyweights but I am not confident at all about the order I have put them in.

"Girl Power" feminism

anyway, sorry this is late, let's talk about "girl power"

Girl Power feminism takes on the whole feminist ideal of "empowerment" but instead of adopting masculine values they keep up and sometimes even hype of the femininity. It is kind of a wierd contrast but it exists in about 70 percent of women in the west.

Girl Power feminists will almost always deny being feminists, they are usually in the the "I'm not a feminist, but..." camp. While Girl Power feminists do not necessarily dress and act like sluts, they usually do (which is good!) and they also see their sexuality as part of their power. Men are generally viewed as Neandrathals who more or less think exclusively with their dicks so they can be manipulated with sex, and most Girl Power feminists think that women are actually more intelligent than men to begin with.

Whereas a real Feminist spends all her time coming up with imaginary grievances against an imaginary Patriarchy that oppresses them, Girl Power feminists recognize the Matriarchy and use it to cash in. But they do not see the Matriarchy as having been created and upheld by mangina slave soldiers but rather by other "kick butt" women like themselves. They are delusional, and in several ways.

These Girl Power feminists think that Charlie's Angels and Alias are real life. What I mean is that they think young, nominally attractive* girls can beat the living shit out of several NFL sized brutes at the same time, let alone an average guy. Have you ever seen a girl play fighting with her boyfriend? Well let me clue you in on something that may shock you: when you see a girl play fighting with a guy, she doesn't know that he isn't trying.

I know how ridiculous that sounds but it is the truth. When you see a girl "beat up" her boyfriend she thinks that she just beat him up for real. Of course, she was "going easy on him" as well so you can imagine how bad the poor guy would have been thrashed had she actually been trying! Girls/women are totally clueless as to how physically weak they are.

My brothers girlfriend wanted to fight me once (in a friendly match, not to hurt me or anything) and I said I was willing to but told her she stood no chance because she couldn't even hang with my brother. She answered that she regularly beat my brother up in their play fights. I said, yeah, because he was not trying at all. She answered that yes he was. I was in disbelief that anyone could be so out of touch with reality so I told her, go ask him if he was trying. She asked him and was gueniunely shocked when he responded that ofcourse he wasn't trying to do anything except not hurt her.

This was not a uniquely dumb girl (she was actually unusually smart for a girl), all Kick Butt, Girl Power feminists are like this. Girl Power feminists genuinely believe themselves to be superior to guys, real Feminists make up excuses as to why they appear to be inferior. Real Feminists are much more in touch with reality and much less obnoxious.

in conclusion, all women are awful.

*none of the Charlie's Angels were actually hot. Lucy Lui: no. Cameron Diaz: God no. Drew Barrymore: nope, although she was pretty fuckin' fine in her cameo in Batman Forever. Jennifer Garner from Alias is okay, but nothing to write home about.

anybody ever see this Showtime series called "Californication"

It stars David Duchovny playing the man he obviously wishes he was: a wiseass, womanizing writer. Sort of a dehydrated, grown up Holden Caufield on steroids. The guy is a jerk on the surface but also deep down loves the women in his life and all women in general. He is not a macho brute but at the same time is willing to throw down, particularly if the one of the women he loves are attacked or insulted. He's smart, witty, handsome (hell he's played by David Duchovny, don't get much more handsome than that, and I know that sounds gay) and masculine but in a "loveable", overgrown teenager way. And he is filthy rich, his fortune coming from his career as a brilliant writer. In short: he is the kind of guy that virtually every woman who isn't either a Feminist or a lezzie fantasizes about as their imaginary perfect guy.

The last part isn't meant to be an attack on woman but rather on Duchovny who obviously has based his whole fantasy alter ego on being the "perfect man" according to the standards of entitled bitchy women. But that is neither here nor there, I don't really give a shit about Duchovny's pathetic self image but I do give a shit about the "girl power" feminism that the show promotes.

First let me comment on the show, it is okay, not great, but okay. That said, on to the feminism of the show.

As I have explained in so many words before there are two main brands of feminism:

1. Strait feminism: these include everything from NOW to SCUM and make up over 25 percent of all Western women

2. Girl Power "kick butt" post-modern feminism: This category takes up about 70 percent of all women, and is much, much worse.

I have to go but will talk more about all of this later
