Success is subjective, but only up to a point; it's not entirely subjective, far from it. There is a great deal of difference between, say, a student who wastes their time at university and ends up with a third-class degree to one who works hard and gets a first, and the overwhelming majority of people would agree with that. Raising children who are good citizens and compassionate people is a pretty much unqualified success.

That's one of the features (or should be) of indices like the Newsweek/Daily Beast one: to focus on a set of goals which are generally held to be desirable (women's access to healthcare, jobs, education and so on) and thus indicative of 'success' in that particular field. Of course, the selected goals may still show cultural biases, but in theory these should be relatively few.

Agreed, the use of this verb is something else

Eh, it's a colourful turn of phrase, albeit exaggerated. There's nothing else to it than that. And yes, I'm well aware the phrase applies to me Lucky but errrr thanks for pointing out the glaringly obvious

Sure it's black and white. Men always win. So we can vote and drive and go to work. At first men can object but soon they see benefits. They don't have the responsibilties anymore and they can keep all their money. But, still, it's women who are expected to do the housework and take care of children as well. And parents and neighbourhood and do teh charity work.
And of course, you also have to look like Adriana Lima or something.

Tazz forever

Life is complex. The inate desire to live is far stronger than the wish to die.

That`s subjective. My desire to die is far more stronger than the inate to live.

And not like there is some aweful shit happening in my life, nor there is hate or fear of anything etc.. Im a happy wealthy comfortable person. I just wish to die young. would be nice.
