Good morning radio doesn't seriously as some clarification on our we know assets trust sassy intelligence. Already mad that he didn't get my attitude and like a teenager. Why also I I didn't I didn't expect him to get mad I would like to. That's that's that you fit in and that doesn't get anywhere and that's not that's not presidential all that extra. Bomb yeah and and and I don't like outside of my I think it's disgusting I agree that that never use that word that we played. I'm not mad that he bash the intelligence the intelligence of the United States of America. The intelligence sources at have been truly wrong many times a flow of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. So I understand that it's just doing it in a foreign country standing next to a foreign leader as they say it is unprecedented. And unheard of at which is Donald Trump. I just wanna know he's doing it for the right reasons. And and Intel I know that I won't come to a final judgment to speak there and I'm mad about anything I really don't care. I'm I'm I'm an observer of all of us play. Granted if I say edu the following sends how do you react as you know the sun rises in the east and sets in the past. Done. Betsy you agree with my assertion. Did my phrasing bother you know but. I fact this this is this is just a quick little nugget here. It's not it's not bid that the whole basis of the segment as funny quick little warning to I tell you have been tell you for a decade. When it comes to political correctness her look to Europe. Because whatever they are doing we will be doing a year or five years down the road date they are there are more of their money Manson civil laws or not. It was more of these constant in tune with its a snowflakes they have tee time so here is the latest this just just a quick thing and we get toward discussion bash. The university in Somerset England. As decided that the words as they college there's a college. Whom the phrase as you know has been banned from all classrooms. Alone really. I am. I mean if you know why ass. Let's deserts and implies you have prior knowledge to it and if you don't hear in any it makes you feel bad now Zachary got. The idea behind the controversial ban is that it makes students feel inadequate insipid. If they don't actually know what the professor is talking about. Are seen as you know leads to self doubt and makes things difficult question. This is just a one of those figures of speech there it's kind of one of those things it yes it is common knowledge to most people. And if you don't know what you should know that he and as you know it's just sort of give but I do know that should make you feel bad I do feel bad mojo that's OK so you may get something less. Mundane like the sun rising in the this those least in setting in the west Jimmy is on you're having a conversation granny you Mac guys so of course here in the sports and I say well as you know we're and then not Tom Brady as the more you were Mori a name and a match. What do you don't know that doesn't that make you feel like less of a man and don't don't you go oh my god I should know this I'm we're gonna talk about something that I should know when I don't know what I'm gonna tower. Yes I or if I were a. Little wind nude all I would probably feel how I don't know much sports knowledge so I'm not gonna fit in with the bullies but I if I were told a sports fact that I had no knowledge and go oh that's interesting I yeah I I am I found myself when somebody says as you know when I didn't notice I didn't actually I mean it's amazing I don't I don't crumble into into a pillar of salt and if you say well I didn't know that that's interesting I'm glad I do now is it confuses a situation and it gives your power and apparently were wrong. I love how instead of like teaching all of us how to be stronger. With words worst hurtful Morris needs and and what we're supposed to do is learn how to be stronger. We're just catering to the weakness as you know it's like just content is as yet. To highlight what some causes as you know I feel like we did it I don't know. But I've chosen to feel like an idiot that they weren't saying it to make me feel like an idiot. There's a total diversity in sunny looking though you know 88 didn't you know picks up. As opposed to as you know there's talk even in the case of somebody saying you hate he did you know this course or jerky shouldn't talk to people that way. But I still then the I still choose not gonna let their words affect me. Which of course brings it back to why we make these changes you just described personal responsibility when don't have that anymore so this this is going to seem like an odd segue but it really isn't because. They they they in what we're discussing is about making people feel good and which is what we do wanna do that for the right reason right we want to make people feel good for the right reasons. Not over here now now now now you're if you're gonna scratch your head when I start with this but just bear with me. On and and especially the male listeners and our audience viewer don't don't tune out because of the subject I wanna talk for just a moment. About. A woman's time of the month. But look look look look look look look at. And specifically. Because I'm not a woman. I don't have children I don't like children ever gonna have children ill. I I understand. From what I've heard that the first time that things shows up. Can be. Is it confusing is it scary is it's. Well it depends if there's an old 88 bits in there as it that would be different for everyone it depends if your family is even talk to you about it. It depends if you heard had been exposed to that that's something that occurs to me if you're a girl who's never had your mother father anyone in your family. Talked to you about this. I would imagine they'd be a little scary that you go to a restaurant and you're like what the hell is sure okay that would be. But even when you know that this is the thing that's got to come you've heard for the living your family and they've got a scratch a little bit for it and all of that. It's still light. All you know it's still not it was I was at just over thirteen. There's just kind of you gotta know when they talk to you that I got their own right now I would do and I think guys like ten do you want to comment I knew when you're saying that girl's guide. Especially I have older sisters. And when they start they'd like to meet. It's like baby came to acquire baby is so weird like out of nowhere. I change. Now you know how men feel like the one week every month I. So let's explain to me that that this is this is what's gonna give us what you want it there explaining to nearly two I have to habit you know I mean I. It's every girl reacts differently but it's like it's inevitable that you'll get it doesn't does sound like I'm. Man you OK it's here in my hand it's in my attempt Ed to be empathetic. I don't know if this lands in the brain and but it seems to me that if I was there have been ten years older. And I was told that I'm gonna start believing them. And there's nothing great about the way it's described I would probably not be happy I would be pretty scared of what was coming charity if not I I was scared of puberty I mean when when just in just is a bowl a going through those chains like don't normally get pimples and hairs and things are gonna be Shayne Lamas dean came.

It's wild this man. There was there might be a lot of work involved and then putting together a party and getting old is he inviting everybody couldn't get all his little packages.

But there's I'm sorry there's nothing fun about your. It's it's painful for most it's a nuisance that gets in the way I mean there's that it should be celebrated in the sense of yes you're a woman now in the and this could leads you know that you couldn't get pregnant in this all the cycles that women go through whatever that it is a beautiful wonderful.

Yeah exactly I. Look big to me it's like. You're gonna be horrified that all these normal things it was just say that you feel and so that is the job of the women and and you liked it if you don't go along with you on that journey of that this is normal and it's okay it's nothing to be embarrassed about. I guess this is to meet this would have to be so individual based. I mean their babies some girls that love this ending this is the greatest idea ever and they want it. Bet I bet they're happy it happened did she got to know your kid. Defeat is big it is still horrified your kid or this is coming your kid I would love but I don't think it's overall something that every girl's gonna want this is a thing now. Won't get in the way we work a couple thoughts from my first of all mean it is a party so I mean how far do we take this in terms of assessing and of course more and more over the top right predecessor's charge attorney and the limos and all sorts of courage. Big deposits usually sets onions and you mentioned yeah that's got to be that that the younger version this week the Sunday this will be Americas can Siena the period party right.

I'm black I'm deporting at bay I mean I grew up at the time of are you there god it's me Margaret and you're like. Really aware of the hour period but I'm just. I don't think we should celebrate like it's a complete and you know. I'll let I was area it picked acknowledge it but it's celebrated the inexpensive.
