今天開學,再度見證了CSE男女比例嚴重失調的程度。抽查樣本結果如下:

第一堂課:

Numerical Analysis:

男:很多
女:2 (而且有一個還是物理系的,不是CSE)

第二堂課:

Intro to Operating System Concepts:

男:很多
女:1

第三堂課:

Computer Architecture with Digital Design

男:超多(多到沒位子坐)
女:0

從網路上查每堂課的學生人數,差不多40幾個人,這樣來算男女比例的話,差不多1:30,3%女孩對上97%的男孩。哈哈!不知道這些女孩子走進教室的時候作何感想?會不會覺得很奇怪?!

Thank you for staying, my good guest.
You have brought me great joy, you have brought me peaceful assurance.
You have shared my most biiter meal, you have tasted my most delightful wine.
You brought me company when there where none, and for that I am forever grateful.
War began many months ago, and because of that, you found my house.
News came to me that you were ready to join the war again,
To see if you could again conquer the Queen’s.country.
However, this time, a new challenger appeared.
A mighty challenger indeed, I might add.
Unfazed, you informed me you have readied your sword and armor.
Confident, you marched out and approached the mighty warrior.
Many days pased, and you informed me of every second of the action.
Great clashes of arms! You say.
Strong enemy! You fear.
A war of attrition! You conclude.
Lady Nike smiles on me! You declare.
As I watch on, I am happy for you, my guest, you indeed appear to be winning.
Then, on a sudden day, I receive message from the Queen itself.
No one shall claim this land, it writes.  I shall hang both warriors.
I am shocked, and I am sad.
My guest will be killed, and the enemy likewise.
In a quest to conquer the Queen’s country, no one is winning.
I await the final judgement, and fear for your death.
I try to persuade you to stop the madness, and return home.
Many days pass, and you still bear hope.
The enemy is losing, you tell me.
The land shall soon be mine, you are confident.
One day I woke up from bed, and found a message.
Fearing that it was the message of your death, I open it with trepidation.
Good news! You write, the enemy is destroyed, and the Queen has surrendered.
With great confusion, I realize that the Queen has lied to me.
I run out to the battlefield.
There laid the enemy, slain.
There stood my guest, victorious.
The sword on his hand, dripping with blood.
He sees me, he smiles.
I have won he says!  I have defeated the enemy.
The Queen stands next to him, looks at me,
and says nothing, as if she never gave me any message.
She looks at the enemy, silent.
Rip his heart out, she suddenly says.
As I watch, my mind runs wild.
I turn my back, returning to my home.
As I walk, I hear the sound the heart being carved out by the sword of my guest.
I return home, I mourn for the enemy.
Like him, I am also the casulty of war.
Unlike him, I always retreated when I lost.
The enemy, with never ending determination, stayed till the very end.
The enemy paid his final price.
Before entering my home, I look back.
My guest is happy.
The Queen stands and smiles.
The enemy, utterly destroyed.
I turn back and enter the house.
I ask aloud, What just happened?!
Unlike my guest, the house answers nothing.

今天聽到一個朋友的事情,感嘆活在這世上,沒受點苦是不可能的。很想找我那位朋友坐下來好好談談,因為他痛苦萬分。至於我,也是過來人,想起他頭一次經歷這樣的經驗,不僅覺得他可憐,更感受到內心深處的錐心之痛。畢竟,我也被扎過好幾次了。

想跟我朋友說~這是長大的必經之路,是成熟的犧牲品。這是為什麼人必須學習看清楚人,推測內心真正的想法和目的。唯有這樣,日後才不會再次受傷。人要越挫越勇,沒有一番寒徹骨,焉得梅花撲鼻香?今天跌倒了,要勇敢站起來,生氣也好,悲傷也好,都要站起來,化悲憤為力量,為了明天繼續往前走。

What are your thoughts on women and do you view them as equals?

Sure,
women are equals, but they are also different from men, and they should
be treated differently and have different goals in life. I think the
old-fashioned view is the most positive, and I may add that by
old-fashioned I mean the view they had on men and women and their roles
in life in Antiquity (in Scandinavia).

It is actually a bit hard
to answer this question, because I have only positive things to say
about women, but I have nothing positive to say about modern women. So
where do I start? If we take modern women first, I think it is sad to
see how – pardon my French – ****ed up modern female culture has
become. Today the role of mother is looked down upon and being a
"housewife" is an insult to many modern women. This is seen as part of
the "male enslavement" of women. To stay home with the children is seen
as a nightmare and a burden. Instead they get an education (usually
some theoretical nonsense) and do as best they can to become like men.
They work like men, dress like men, try to think like men, talk like
men and act like men (and some of them even look like men). Since most
of the smart women are busy getting an education, the generally more
stupid women get most of the children, and as a result of that the
whole species is getting dumber – as the average intelligence drops
when the stupid women have most of the children.

Cooking too is
looked upon with contempt. A (female and American) friend of mine
pointed at the fact that women in the USA are actually more likely to
slap a man’s face if he asks her to cook dinner than for demanding a
blowjob on their first date, and I think that says it well. All the
"liberation" of women has done is to cause women to replace all the
positive characteristics of women with the negative characteristics of
men.

I have met Norwegian men who have had girlfriends who
didn’t even know how to mix lemonade or boil an egg – and note the past
form of the verb, have had girlfriends, as they obviously didn’t bother
to stay with them. The beauty of the women lured the men to them, but
they had no other qualities, so they didn’t manage to hold onto their
men.

The modern women can no longer cook, they no longer want
children and they are no longer warm, tidy and loving creatures who
think spending time with their family is a good thing. They are
probably too "independent" and "strong" to even have a family of their
own. The only thing modern women have to offer men today is sex. So
instead of being loving housewives who cook and raise children, they
are reduced to being sexual objects only – and they are so messed up
emotionally and intellectually that they often spend most of the money
they make on their jobs on plastic surgery, cosmetics and tons of
clothes they think will make them look good, in a desperate attempt to
stay or become more attractive. Well, they have no other qualities
attractive to men, so what else can we expect? This is the fruit of
feminism. The fruit of "women’s liberation".

A truly smart woman
will understand that being a housewife, raising children and cooking is
not demeaning. They perform a task that is extremely important for the
whole kin, tribe and nation, and nobody else can do it. Men certainly
cannot! Women are equipped with a womb and breasts for a reason. That
is just how nature works, whether we like it or not. It is not
demeaning for a woman to be a woman. Everybody should understand that,
even hateful, self-loathing feminists.

True women are all my
equals, whom I adore and respect, but I see modern women more like
disgusting, primitive and disturbed animals, or subhuman at best. And
those who think I am some male-chauvinist who only criticize modern
women here are actually wrong, because this is not only an attack on
modern women, but it is an attack on the modern world as a whole, and
modern men are certainly no better. Most modern men should be grateful
even for the fact that they have not yet been put to sleep, like dogs
often are when there is something seriously wrong with them. All of
mankind is thoroughly messed up today, not just the modern women, and I
am sure there are ten times more women worth saving, than there are men
worth saving, so to speak.

我知道這樣講會引起許多人的反彈(尤其女人),但是我誠心的贊同這個人的說法。我如果沒有來美國,我可能會認為這個人在胡說八道,但是看到這邊的美國女孩之後,我完全的同意他的說法。

在大家開始攻擊我是大男人主義之前,請先想想,如果我能夠自己幫自己煮菜(煮還蠻好吃的喔~),那表示我並不是因為如果我沒一個女人在家裡燒菜給我我會餓死,我才這樣講的。

我為何贊同這個人的說法正因為我常常聽到女人要經濟獨立,30歲之後結婚,生小孩(甚至有些不想生小孩)。每當聽到誰誰離婚了就痛罵男人沒一個好東西,女人越老越吃虧。我聽了覺得好笑,但是因為太多認識的女孩都這樣想,讓我有點擔憂(因為我不想找有這樣想法的女孩~哈哈)。

當然,我不是說女人應該百依百順,當男人的奴隸。但是反過來,男人也不是女人的奴隸吧!我認為提倡女性主義,是提倡男女平等。男人跟女人一起做菜,一起做家事,一起帶孩子,這個我不僅完全同意,更希望以後我跟我未來的太太是這樣過生活。

但是提倡女性主義,絕對不是男人什麼事情都幫女人做,男人變成女人的奴隸,百依百順,給人隨便使喚的。男人一不依,就被說不夠紳士,不是好男人。我覺得現在太多女性朋友把以前男人對待女人的方法反過來用在男人身上。認為女人有權利這樣對待男人。

男人女人,必須有一方是要懷孕生小孩的,今天大自然決定(或是上帝,如果你這樣相信),女人才能生得出小孩。有些事情,就是只有女人才做的到,豈不是更能夠代表一個女人「夠女人味」,正是因為他能夠醞釀生命?

今天太多太多女人拒絕生小孩,甚至說生了小孩,就什麼都沒了。太多太多女人,整天shopping,整天化妝,整天擔心身材,只為了什麼?只為了不要變成老大媽,變的沒人要。他們卻沒想過,整天把自己弄的漂漂亮亮的,把自己弄成一個花瓶,為了什麼?為了…to have sex?只有這樣嗎?家庭價值觀都到哪了?這些人想要有家庭嗎?想要有小孩嗎?想要有一個即使你很醜也會有一個人愛著你的生活嗎?

Article 裡說,Modern women has only been reduced to a sexual object,我在美國看到太多例子。美國男人大部分成天想的就是怎麼跟女人做愛,而這裡女人最讓我不可思議的就是他們竟然「想要」這樣的關注?!可以跟著男人一起看A片,還學A片裡的女人叫,一點也不在乎這些男人要的只是他們的身體而已。這種女人,給男人玩弄,拋棄,傷害,是他們自找的。

我跟我好朋友們都碰到太多只能看,不能用的女孩。有些女孩你一看就會覺得,恩!這人以後結婚一定可以很幸福。有些女孩你一看就會覺得,恩!這個最好在結婚之前跟他玩玩就好(當然,我不夠厲害,吸引不到別人,哈哈)。如果大家認為結婚是幸福的啟端(I certainly believe so),比起整天孤單還要一天到晚擔心會不會有人注意到你,或是你頭髮衣服夠不夠漂亮可以吸引到人,還要來的充實,那得先好好想想,女性主義跟男女平等真正的含意是什麼。


最近每個禮拜五都去打羽毛球,常常打到晚上12點才做休。去的次數頻繁了,也就碰到常常一起打羽毛球的人。學校每到禮拜五羽毛球場就像是從中國搬過來一樣,都是中國人!到哪都聽到中文,別有一番親切感!

後來漸漸發現,好多羽毛球中的強者,都是Engineering的?其中有個光頭沒頭髮的EE研究生(我們戲稱他為羽毛球的阿格西~哈哈),打球我看有奧運實力了!看他打球真的是嘆為觀止~我們馬雷兄上次還說:"Would we violate their greatness if we played on their court?"哈哈!!對我們初學者來說,We salute you, O Great One!

打球打的久了,也就有一些機會跟不認識的人湊隊打球。雖然都還不知道對方名字,也不怎麼聊,只管打球,但是感覺上好像已經認識他們一樣了。今天看我一個人沒辦法打球,跟我打過球的人還叫我跟他們一起打,他自己先休息。那時真是讓我蠻感動的~忽然覺得很想要每個禮拜都跟他們打上幾次,進而成為好「球友」。雖然他們都比我大,都是研究生,但是把打羽毛球的興趣當作共通點,我相信以後一定可以多交幾位好朋友!
