ryan: Joseph P is correct that Objectivism--with a capital "O"--is a label that has been taken, sadly enough, by the life-philosophy of Ayn Rand. It includes atheism, a belief in science, unfettered capitalism, and a rather compassionless version of rational self-interest as its ethics (its adherents deny the "compassionless" characterization, but I've never seen compassion in the Rand essays I've read).
Objectivism, particularly with a capital O, has been claimed by the Ayn Rand acolytes. You may want to be careful using the label which has been acknowledged by most of society. If you mean small-o objectivism, you may want to find another way of saying it. The word's been tainted, sadly.
Trust me; I've done the research. I know several anarcho-capitalist Libertarians who worship Ayn Rand.
And you didn't give us any context, just the word with a capital O, in the middle of a list of what could be random, unassociated characteristics. ^.^ Try responding something to the effect of, "Oh, those Ayn Rand worshipers? No, I think those guys are fucking nuts, too."
If you don't mean that you're an Ayn Rand acolyte, then you don't necessarily have anything to grow out of. I mean, you still might. I don't know you personally. But I don't see anything else obvious that the statement applies to, at least.
Heh, yeah, there were a few issues. The Objectivism is the one that jumped out at me, but obviously, I'm not female. I can analyze, but I can't have the gut-level reaction that you and other women would. Your reaction is a bit more accurate and representative.
Let me introduce the existence of military groupies, though. But I don't think most of those are atheists. In my experience, they're mostly fundie-Christian southerners. He could find one of them to have sex with, but I'm not sure he'd find in one of them what he's looking for in a relationship.
Actually, as a female myself, it's this line that lost me: "Im [sic] a combat nut because of my instinctive nature and passion for engineering."
You're going to lose almost all women on the Objectivism, man. Objectivists are almost all male. Women tend to be more objective than Objectivist ... and there's a huge difference between the two.
I dunno, maybe you'll grow out of that phase, eventually.
No Ryan, I don't - luckily lol
Lets see im a Objectivist, Atheist, Individualist, Realist, Naturalist, Reductionist, Hedonist, Moral Nihilist, Mereological Nihilist, Existential Nihilist. The way I live my life is "Let your emotions govern your intentions. Your cognitive thought decide your actions and your body be the tool of your existence" More specificly my highest passion is psychology than engineering although they are very close. When there is a problem I fix it if I can. I have a very high sence of humor. Im a combat nut because of my instinctive nature and passion for engineering. I like conversation but if I get one word responses my interest in the conversation will drop to about none. I also like to multitask and keep my mind busy. anyone know anyone like that
Laura, as a female myself, I use the word female over most other words since several of them have been coopted by people with agendas who disagree with the biological definitions of sex. As a female I'm simply an Homo sapiens with female reproductive organs. I also don't use the word gender anymore, only sex.As for your whore comment... I agree fully.
