  •  I tell you what, webranding. I'd kinda like to (8+ / 0-)

    turn the tables and imagine what the life of a well-off white male senator must be like.  Oh, wait...the TV schedule is full of shows showing us what life is like for healthy, popular, young, well-off white males and their cute, thin girlfriends.  We don't have to use our imaginations!

    Heh.  

    Yes, empathy is supposed to be one of the traits that differentiates adults from juveniles. The ability to see an "other" and imagine what reality is like for that "other" without the juvenile necessity to internalize the feeling by actually experiencing it oneself.  It's a cognitive developmental benchmark, really.        

    Metaphors be with you.

      I am a fit dude and I tend to like to date fit women. But when I watch TV and see a lot of women that are featured my first thought is "would somebody feed her" :).

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.
