I'd hoped our gender had stopped giving the girls ammo by now, but there are clearly corners of society that female empowerment have missed by a wide margin:

How do you feel about (White) men generally being portrayed as either socially inept nerds or uncouth bumbling idiots in mass-market shows?

It's annoying, tho not unwarranted in a surprisingly high proportion of cases. My Brother and Father, one a civil, the other a mechanical engineer (and I do mean engineer), much as I luv 'em, both suffer from the affliction. Chances are I do too, tho naturally I can't see it. It leads to the patronizing raising of eyebrows amongst certain types of women.

I think I can confidently predict that those same shows depict women as mentally unstable, with a tendency to exhibit either extreme loudness,  social retreat or capable of dissolving in tears at any opportunity. And I'm sure that is annoying for women, but I would also respectfully suggest there is a degree of truth there, much as there is with men being socially retarded.

Because such shows are supposed not to be comedy, I find both depictions lazy and annoying. And it's even more annoying, I'm sure, when somebody assumes such stereotypes in their marketing material.

In comedy it can be funny, and both genders know it.

Well, you're fair, can't argue with that 

(Although I think you're meant to use the terms 'empowered', 'finding myself' and 'emotionally aware'. :lol:)

Always place the spare/flat under the vehicle until the car is back on the ground, just in case that cheap ass jack fails.

Many years ago I was with my dad in his Austin Sheerline when there was a loud bang, tyre blowout. Much searching for the jack, then a eureka moment, knob located and turned and as if by magic the Jackall Hydraulic System lifted all four wheels off the ground :D.

she knows how to loosen the nuts 

And how to remove them.

And how to raise a jack.

And how to screw.

And what's she really doing at 1:42?
