  5. Recently someone told me that I am the most selfless person they know. I appreciate this comment and it’s a nice sentiment, but I entirely disagree. I care about others and I like to do things for others and I’m sometimes more concerned with other people being comfortable at the expense of my own comfort. I believe in helping others and considering others, but ultimately people don’t wok that way. I’m really selfish. I help people because I get something out of it. I feel good when I can help someone, I feel like a people will like me more if I stay calm about things and play it cool instead of confronting them and causing a conflict. I think if I do things for other people, maybe they’ll remember and do something for me. Even though these payouts don’t happen often, I still do these things in the hopes that the pay off might come.

    I can’t be mad at anyone for acting selfishly. This person who confronted me self-recognizes as person of above average selfishness. Everyone is selfish. We have to be to preserve ourselves. At what point is it abnormal? No one wants to seem selfish because it’s seen as such a negative trait, but it can be important. Maybe there’s a narrow area of acceptable selfishness. How much of that is societal norms vs actual harmful outcomes as a result of those thoughts/beliefs/actions of selfishness.

    Altruism doesn’t exist. I believe people would put own their own air mask in an airplane first without you having to tell them.

  9. whoneedsfeminism:

I need feminism because women still aren’t included in cycling grand tours like the Tour de France. 
Attempts to include females generally consist of separate, smaller stage races such as the Tour de France Feminin, which was cancelled in 2009. Reasons against including women range from women having less endurance (bullsh!t), breaking 100 years of tradition, and a lack of sponsorship interest (which demonstrates a problem in itself). 
This year the race organisers have developed La Course, a one day women’s race, which is being praised as “game changing” and “revolutionary”.
It’s time for professional cycling to leave the dark ages, stop throwing smaller, lesser races at us like a bone to a dog, and include women in the full length Tour, even if it is with a separate General Classification.
