So you'll be seeing orange half the time you're in your house. What's the problem? Maybe you and your girl should celebrate a bit..Orange IS the color for curiosity.

You're all so right. It was not my best showing. I think I'd like to try out the old "my brother stole my phone" trick. Or "I was really tired". Ok it was an absolute fail.

True, but white is more neutral and easier to paint over. If I'd be buying a house, I would rather have it be white than sunset orange, because I would probably have to paint over it several times.

It's actually really hard to sell a house that has crazy colors on the wall, because it makes it harder for the buyer to imagine themselves in the home. If too much of the previous owner is present (through photos, crazy furniture pieces, walls painted, etc) potential buyers have a very hard time imagining the house as their home.

Agree. White is a very common colour. But if it's just one room in OPs house that's that bold of a colour like sunset orange, the house may look odd, too. Don't get me wrong, sunset orange is still a pretty colour.

I like orange, but it's a colour you can have too much of, especially if it's a room where you're supposed to relax/sleep. Colours do affect moods, and bright, vivid, sunset orange is not a calming colour, it's quite the opposite.

You guys obviously haven't read The Hunger Games trilogy. There's a quote from Mockingjay in which Peeta states that his favorite color is "orange, like sunset".

Those books weren't particularly well-written or memorable. I think the logos at the beginning of each chapter were well-drawn and Peeta likes bread. I'm serious, that's all I remember after reading all three books.

^ Yup, that's exactly why the hunger games is the best selling young adult trilogy worldwide. Because there is a character who enjoys bread, and because the logos before every chapter are quite lovely.

This is one you suck up and yield to your woman. When it comes to cars and power tools, insist on having your way, but when it comes to home decor, you let her have her way. You do like having a girlfriend, right?

You guys. Are you new? Do you know what a joke is? Everyone who just took that seriously got trolled. Perdix is probably looking at your comments dying of laughter because you took him seriously. First rule of FML- NEVER take Perdix seriously.

I'd love to think we can eliminate gender norms, but its not going to happen. Society dictates it regularly, and people follow. It always has and it always will. There may be some women who work on cars, and some men who love home decor, but in reality, people follow societal expectations.

I know perdix is rarely serious, but even as a joke it came off bad to me at least. It's jokes like these that perpetuate gender expectations, even if they don't mean to. I'd like to think that a world without gender roles is possible, maybe not in our lifetime, but we can at least try to work on it.

#74, I'd like to see that, too, but the only way that is going to happen is to point out the gender stereotypes and lampoon them. Making them taboo subjects of conversation, even of humorous ones, will just serve to perpetuate them.

I don't see why so many women get upset about gender roles. I love being a woman and cooking, doing crafts, home decor and other 'girly' things. Don't get me wrong, I also like to shoot guns, drive fast cars, and ride my street bike, but when it comes down to it I would much rather have a man running this country or fixing my car for me. Women just think differently then men and when it comes to running a country, they tend to make decisions based on their emotions rather then what needs to be done.

Because sometimes there are more things to life than cooking, cleaning, and 'girly' things. Being ascribed certain interests is also ascribing a certain amount of values, which I personally infer as serving, subordination, frivolity and superficiality, which are distasteful to me particularly if those are the only qualities being ascribed and I would rather be as far away from those values as possible. Also, I'm aware that you may as well be a perfectly wonderful person, but your profile pic doesn't help too much. Also, I work with my head, not just my emotions

Woman are also more than people who 'serve'. Woman are nurturing and take care of children, husbands, and homes. I don't see why you would have a problem being labeled that. It's a good thing! Besides, that's not the only thing they are labeled as. Just as many, if not more roles and qualities as men!

Sunset Orange? Sounds like the color of Tang, which, coincidentally, is something you won't be getting if you keep bitching about the fucking paint.
