Weekly Update: New AXPR listings, Hydro @ Consensus, WandX non-custodial staking, Wysker Reactions... – 10 May - 16 May'19
Hi everyone! This was a super busy week at Parachute and partners. Buckle up, here we go:

Cryptodelphia won this week’s Parena to take home a cool share of the 200k PAR pot. The finale turned out to be a walkover since iCuddle was a clone account. Thanks for another shoutout Uptrennd! You guys rock. Gian’s been a trooper at PurpleCoin, keeping the group active through thick and thin. This week’s Saturday Rock Wars was to choose the best female vocalist. The house was super divided this time. Top spot went jointly to Ann Wilson, Angela Gossow, Tarja Turunen, Tina Turner, Alicia Keys, Florence Welch, Amy Lee, Whitney Houston and Pat Benatar. Whew!

That's what 138 lbs of chocolate looks like. But why? Ask Tony!

aXpire’s guerrilla marketing campaign was underway at the Consensus 2019 event in NY this week. Attendees were greeted to cheeky signboards placed across the premises. I’ll share some more pics from the campaign in the next update. AXPR is now listed on Blocktrade with ETH and BTC pairings. Woot! The weekly 10k AXPR burn went ahead as usual. Say hello to aXpire’s latest product, PayBX, in its introductory article. What does it do? It makes crypto, currency. Get it, get it? Winners of the KuCoin trading competition received their AXPR this week. And finally, Clinton joined aXpire as a Community Advisor. Congratulations buddy! Oh and did we mention that AXPR was also listed on SwitchDex? That’s 2 listings in 1 week! And a ton of new listings (list 1, 2, 3) and trading pairs on SwitchDex as well. Neat.

Make your move, Upwork

2014.07.15 21:04 aratharr A Talk About "Entitlement"

I've been hearing a lot of this term from feminists: “Male Entitlement”. The idea that males think they’re entitled to sex just because he is nice. While many people are siding with the feminists, I think this is actually exposing another double standard.
Now, don’t get me wrong; sexual entitlement of any sort is wrong. I don’t align myself with these “nice guys” who always stick to trying to hook up with one girl and giving her all you've got, even if she says no. I think it’s ridiculous if guys continue to impress another girl for sex, even if she just wants to be friends. It’s a stupid idea to waste all your time on a girl who won’t have sex with you because it’s her right. And it’s even worse to shame that girl for not having sex with you. For the record, I’m against the idea of “friend-zoning” being a bad thing.
However, male entitlement isn't the only sort of entitlement that’s going on today. This type of entitlement kind of ties in with “fat-shaming” I was recently shown by one of my friends a rather ridiculous image created on the internet. It showed a rather chubby female, and it was captioned:
“A real man would love every inch of her”.
Do you see where I’m going with this? Surely you must. If not, I’ll spell it out for you.
Let’s be realistic. For most of you straight men, I’m sure we can agree that someone like Angela Gossow is more sexually attractive than someone like Honey Boo-Boo’s mother. It’s just the way our biology works. I don’t have a problem with women finding tall men more attractive than short men (maybe it’s because I’m 6’1, but it’s still linked to biology). I’m not saying that any girl with weight is unattractive; however, skinnier girls generally have a better chance at finding a sex partner than fat girls. Do to this unfortunate biological drawback; this had caused many chubby girls to feel bad about their own image.
This is when society began to change in an attempt to improve the self-esteem for girls. Now this, I have no problem with. I’m not ashamed of who I am, and I’m not the best looking guy around. Many companies often cashed in on this. For example, Dove launched the campaign “Any Girl is Beautiful”. Campaigns around the world created what we live in: a self-esteem age. That’s not too bad, am I right? However, it didn’t stop there. Somewhere in the mix, the message went from “Every girl is beautiful” to “If you don’t think this girl is beautiful and wouldn’t love her than you’re a horrible human being”. Apparently, feminists/other women now think that fat women are automatically entitled to sex/love.
“OMG YOU’RE SUCH A SHALLOW MYSOGINISTIC PIG! THIS IS WHY GIRLS HAVE SELF-ESTEEM ISSUES!”
Really? Isn't that exactly what you say to men who feel entitled because they’re nice? “Apparently MRAs/other men think that nice guys are entitled to sex/love” All I did was change a few words. And don’t say “They don’t think they’re entitled, they just think they’re beautiful!” That picture that I mentioned earlier in this article clearly proved otherwise. The idea is that even though this woman is less attractive to our natural hormones, we need to fulfill her entitlement or else we “aren't real men”. Are you now seeing where I’m going with this, feminists? You argue that men feel entitled to sex/love, and if they don’t get what they want, they shame the woman for not giving it to her, but then you completely ignore when certain WOMEN feel entitled to sex/love, and if they don’t get what they want, they shame the man for not giving it to her (by saying they aren't real men).
“Yeah, but this is a bigger problem with men!”
Oh, is it? This is where I start to expose the double standard I mentioned earlier. You see, when a man complains about how he feels entitled to sex/love, he gets slandered, hated on, etc. However, when a woman complains about how she feels entitled to sex/love, she gets applauded, and everyone takes her side. The only reason it appears to be worse for male entitlement is because society never sides with him, and ultimately, works against him. They see no problem with women feeling entitled to sex, no matter what the size, but when it’s a man doing it, he’s heavily criticized (which is understandable). So therefore, since many males see this, they often take harsher reactions than women do, since they don’t have the rest of society on their side, unlike the entitled women. I’m not saying they all react like Elliot Roger; the main reason Elliot did what he did was because he was he was a sociopath with a god complex. Don’t even try to use him as an example, feminists.
Now ladies, I’ll say it again, very abruptly, just in case you didn't catch it the first time. YOU DO NOT OWE YOUR VAGINA TO ANOTHER MAN. He is not entitled to have sex with you. That is perfectly understandable. I’m not trying to defend men who feel entitled, either. However, you have to look into your own backyard. There are plenty of entitled women out there, too; they feel that even though they aren't as physically attractive to another man, they are automatically owed sex/love, and anyone who disagrees “isn't a real man”. Guess what? Men don’t owe all fat girls sex/love either. Deal with it.
Another example of female entitlement is one of those things you find on Tumblr that say “Every girl deserves a man who loves her, takes care of her, respects her, etc.” If that’s not female entitlement, then I don’t know what is. The only reason why you think that male entitlement is worse is because society almost always sides with female entitlement. They just disguise it as “Every woman is beautiful”. And yes, I do understand that not every woman is an entitled, shallow hypocrite. I've met many women who accept the fact that men generally prefer skinny girls over fat girls and are fine with it. What I’m mainly trying to do is expose the fact that not just males feel entitled to sex/love. Rather than directing this against the women of the world, I’m directing this against the feminists who not just ignore, but unintentionally (or even intentionally) support this double standard of entitlement. In fact, rather than just saying “Hey ladies, stop feeling entitled to another man’s body. Nobody owes you sex/love”. I’ll just finish it by saying:
Hey humans, stop feel entitled to someone else’s body. Nobody owes you sex/love.
Now THAT’S true equality. Deal with it, feminists.
