I know, right? Anyone who saw the show would think this is hilarious, and if you didn't like the show, why would you watch this vid? When he did that walk, I saw Dorothy in her flowing garments walking across the set.
+bingbong I don't find camp characters annoying. They're a stereotype - and it's true that stereotypes can be damaging. However, comedy often relies heavily on stereotypes. Rose was the dumb blonde - a superannuated one - but a 'dumb blonde' nonetheless. I don't believe all blondes are dumb and I don't believe all camp, gay men are annoying - or indeed that all gay men are camp. Camp gay men just seem to work in many sit coms - like other stereotypes.
In the pilot episode of The Golden Girls they did have a rather camp, gay cook. He had about one funny (ish) line. It could have worked, but in the end I suppose they felt his character wasn't needed.
+Chris Sheehan I think you may be in the USA and based on your last comment I'm assuming you are talking of your fellow Native Indians that were pushed back and back and had lands taken away from you over many years. If I'm mistaken and you're not then get over your fucking self.
+farfisa I refuse to change to people who take advantage of the rest of the country!! Slowly but surely this country is going from the land of the free and the home of the brave to the land of communism and the home of pussies!!!
+Chris Sheehan No idea. What did I say that inferred what you said was either racist or homophobic - you can carry on being both of those things, no one in the world can stop you. You only show yourself up. Also your last line doesn't make sense. No sense in any context. I don't care that you're uneducated but there's no excuse for not being able to present an argument alongside its reason.
+farfisa look people like you are what's making political correctness the biggest thing since sliced bread. I really
despise liberals like you who are trying to make everything seem racist or homophobic. I say fuck equality this country was not founded on equality, we may as well should have stayed in Britain!!!
I'm glad someone asked that question. My first memory of the Golden Girls was when I was 3 or 4 (that's 1990, 1991) and I my mom would watch it in the kitchen. I remember the kitchen with it's yellow hue and seeing 3 women at the table, 1 on a stool.
This baffled my little mind and I remember asking myself why wouldn't the 4th lady sit at the last part of the table because we had four at ours.
I know now the reason but I always remembered me thinking of that! :)
To isolate the mobilization-induced labor supply shift, the authors exploit the fact that the fraction of males serving in the war was not uniform across states. For example, in Massachusetts, Oregon, and Utah, almost 55 percent of males between the ages of 18 and 44 left civilian work to serve in the war. In Georgia, the Dakotas, and the Carolinas, this number ranged between 40 and 45 percent. The state differences in war mobilization actually reflect a variety of factors. The Selective Services guidelines for deferments were based on marital status, fatherhood, essential skills for civilian war production, and temporary medical disabilities, but left considerable discretion to the local boards. Because of the importance of maintaining a strong food supply to support the war, an important consideration for deferment was farm employment.
States with a high percentage of farmers had substantially lower mobilization rates, and this explains a considerable share of the state variation in mobilization rates.
The authors show that in states with greater war mobilization of men, women worked more after the war and in 1950, but not in 1940. This differential does not appear to be explained by other cross-state differences or possible demand factors, and is not present in the 1940 data nor does a similar trend recur in the decade of the 1950s. The authors interpret these differentials as labor supply shifts induced by the War. Acemoglu, Autor, and Lyle believe these cross-state changes in female employment were caused by greater participation of women during the war years, with some of those women staying on. War changed womens preferences, opportunities, and information about available work.
