Circle Google153DIAMOND TEAM ELITE ENGAGER CIRCLE 11.11.14This is my Diamond Team Elite Circle. Along with my Elite Inner Circle, these are the people who have helped me grow to where I am today. They have my gratitude, and to help them, and to help you grow your followers I am sharing them here. There is no automatic criteria to get into this circle. These are people who I have chosen and personally hand curated.To get to the next level and have a chance to become a Team Elite Engager, there are five simple steps:1. Make sure you have added me!2. +1 this post3. Publicly share this circle to public, your circles and extended circles. DO NOT DELETE THIS SHARE OR YOU WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM NEXT WEEK'S  OR POSSIBLY BLACKLISTED FROM  FOR GOOD4. Optionally, comment to let me know what you have done! (this is optional, because my circles often reach the maximum 500 comments).5. So I can easily find your share, always publicly share my original shared circle. You'll know if you're sharing the original one because you won't see "Jason Levy originally shared" above here. If you do see it, click on "originally shared" and it will bring you to this post.6.

Paige Keaton57,202This is my Women's circle. Stuffed with amazing people. A really decent add to anyone's circles.  Thanks ladies for being so great to me and my G+ experience.  Some people may have not been included in this circle share. I can only share 500 at one time. This circle exceeds that. Sorry ahead of time. #whateverwednesday   #wednesdaywisdom   #wednesdaymotivation  2014-03-05 15:08:18501211623
Carms Perez47,102Here's a circle with amazing women to follow on G+! My most recent find is+Kristen Macready  who is very engaging and always has a positive and uplifting word to say! Do you know any other amazing G+ women that I'm missing in this circle? Please mention them in the comments! :) #ns  2014-02-26 23:30:07425809
Paige Keaton54,103I shared this circle earlier and realized it was lacking a lot of women that I have circled. I went through my other circles and found about 300 more just glancing. I have added these women and would like to share it with you.  Be kind to the women I am sharing with you today. I don't share circles often but I hear a lot that G+ is mostly male. I have spent a lot of time finding good women. This is not a porn circle if that is what you are into. This is NOT a HOT WOMEN  circle. This is a circle of real women who have a G+ page just like me.  #circleshare   #circlesharing   #womenofgoogleplus  2013-10-30 17:36:0450023821
Matt Gibson920,723Ok so we are going to try something different here...As you may have noticed, I am sharing a circle of really cool people and pages for you to add to your circles.  If you want cool content from cool people - add the circle!  It's that simple!  If YOU would like your profile to be shared to almost 1 million people, leave me a comment that tells me a little bit about YOU.  What do you like?  What is your favorite music?  Where do you live?  Let's get to know each other!  What are your social network or website addresses (simply posting a link without telling me about YOU won't make the cut btw)?Here is an example:Hi!  My name is +Matt Gibson and I am an independent artist working on my 1st album!  I like all forms of music but I tend to lean towards metal.  I play guitar, piano, drums and saxophone as well as sing!  You can check out my website at www.crimsonsymphony.com and you can subscribe to my +YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/crimsonsymphonymusicI like books by great authors like Tolkien, +TERRY BROOKS  and Raymond Feist among others.  I read a lot of non-fiction as well on subjects like business, marketing, antiques and tech.I am an amateur gardener and I aspire to own my own beehives.I like reading your posts because you are such a handsome fellow with that long wavy hair and manly beard and....ahem ok you can skip that part unless you really mean it LOL.Now that's not hard is it?  Tell me about yourself and get your profile shared to a million people!  Not a bad deal eh?New and OLD friends can participate but no cheating or dumb comments like "add me" or "hi".  You should all thank +Amanda Blain for giving me this idea to steal for our benefit btw... so let the fun and networking begin!!PS If your comment is really cool you may find yourself in the next Cool People circle and who knows, maybe we will become friends or colleagues? 2013-10-03 00:47:03249721243

Brett Bjornsen39,607G+ 2 Year AnniversaryIt's hard to believe it's been two years of plusin' already.  I've met some incredible people in my time here since those first days of beta, and it's changed my view of what "social" really is.  When I received my invite to G+ beta back on June 28, 2011, I came here thinking of this space as an easier way to share things privately with people I already knew.   It didn't take long until I began discovering new and interesting people that changed my opinion for the better and I began circling and interacting publicly ( "public or it doesn't count" ring a bell to some of you? ).Almost half this circle is filled with great people I have met in person thanks to Google+.My thanks to everyone in my circles for continuing to enrich my social experience here. #sharedcircles   #googleplusanniversary   2013-06-28 07:48:25166431238

Daria Musk2,547,279G+RL POWERHey G+niuses, it's so time for shared circles to be a big thing again!Discovery is one of the most exciting parts of life, finding a melody hanging in the air and turning into a new song... finding a great new show on Netflix and going on a bender watching every episode... Finding a new food that's crazy delicious and then finding out it's good for you (yams where have you been all my life?!)....But finding new people to love is just about the best discovery ever. A while ago I made a circle of G+RLS who were new friends, mentors and G+niuses here. I just saw that +Eli Fennell ran with it and added more amazing ladies bringing the total up to 101! So lean in to add this fabulously fierce and feminine circle! XO, Daria #FollowFriday    #LeanIn   #FeelGoodFriday   2013-04-12 20:37:30101107774

I could not recommend this circle more highly. They're artists, bloggers, business owners, and the list goes on and on.

Amanda Blain2,251,868*500 People Who Hangout Circle*Anytime you see me having a hangout feel free to join in. We use webcam, voice and text chat... (Please get your webcam going though!) and join in the fun conversations. What do we talk about in these hangouts with strangers? Everything and nothing  We talk about todays current events, android vs apple, whats happening on Google+, the price of big macs in your local country, business networking,  tv shows, whatever you want to talk about... To the best of my ability everyone in this circles has personally hungout with me... and it was fun.. :)This circle is where I have made the most lasting connections on G+.... Meeting many of these people in real life since I met them in hangouts. I joined G+ Jun 29th, 2011. I hung out then and pretty much most days since. I was voted Google+ Hangout Queen this year :)I've seen amazing things in hangouts, Tours of far away countries, cooking classes, airplane trips, photowalks, concerts, language lessons, trivia nights, relationship advice, seeing famous landmarks, attending behind the scenes of tv shows, hangouts with famous celebrities, and countless late night and early morning hangouts with fabulous normal people from all parts of the world and right next door... TV shows have nothing on this. Countless experiences all without leaving my living room.If you want to try out hangouts on G+, ADD THIS CIRCLE and join one! These people will have hangouts that you should be able to see and join in on...   People in hangouts are usually really welcoming and nice.. so speak up.. say hi and join us.♥ ♥ Please feel free to share ♥ ♥ps. if you cant add the circle because google says you added too many today.. remove some of the people and try again... :)#googlehangout #hangout #sharedcircles  2012-11-16 03:28:4650010548170

Alex Grossman27,364It's TGIF so hope you have a great day. Here's a Circle I thought I'd share today for Follow Friday - Movie Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about movies, all kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, engaging with others, sharing and exchanging comments, please let me know and I can try and add you to this Circle (notification limits permitting). If you're a member of this circle, you agree to participate in a respectful manner. Due to the changing and, at times uncertain, notification restrictions Google has in terms of number of people you can notify with a post I've split this up into two Circle. The overflow from this Circle can be found at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/Ad9LJFo9PLrFYI - you can find today's movie thread at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/RDDzuGdsvLX #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #movies   #film  2012-10-19 14:01:4110111219
Joe Martinez31,392Best of the Best on Google+ -- October 2012!It's that time again! Time for the Best of the Best on Google+! The circle has grown a bit too big and there are some new additions to this one but some may be left out since there is a limit of 501 to share (This is looking like an All Star Circle Lately!). As always I try to mention some of the people in this amazing circle and remember to feel free to share, add the circle (especially if you are new to Google+!), or recommend people for future shares! Some of my Google+ family include: +Brenda Leguisamo, +Joby Remigio, +Alex de Carvalho, +Sze Liu,  +Liz Quilty, +Liza Walton, +Blanca Stella Mejia, +Linda Lawrey, +matthew rappaport, +Bobbi Jo Woods, +Mara Mascaro, +Michelle Marie, +Amanda Blain, +Moritz Tolxdorff, +Euro Maestro, +Christina Trapolino, +Brian Rose, +2012-10-09 03:17:21501191634
Alex Grossman26,573For another Follow Friday Circle for today, here is my Music Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about and listen to music. All kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. Unlike other circles, not all shares will be public since some people don't want to see playlists or song shares in their stream. So, articles and discussions of artists, software, the industry, etc will be public and playlists from Spotify or songs may (but not always) be shared to Circles only. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, exchanging comments back and forth, sharing music, please let me know and I can add you to this Circle. You only need to agree that if you do participate that you do so in a respectful manner.For a playlist I shared today, go to:https://plus.google.com/u/0/102001774674190160714/posts/7vrRYxfXr4c #followfriday   #followfridaycircle   #playlist   #music  2012-09-28 14:23:558512112
P E Sharpe28,871The Backbone Of My G+ HangOut CommunityIt's the anniversary month for Hang Outs On Air, so what better way to celebrate what hangouts have meant to me than to share a circle of the folks I deem hangout-worthy? ;^)These are the people who make MY hangouts happen, whether they are Googlealiens who have supported the hang out environment or the everyday G+ folks with whom I have had regular, ongoing conversations over the past year.The circle comprises people who kicked everything up a notch for me on G+, and who are largely responsible for building the community that surrounds me. They are, for the most part, the people who have shared circles that included me, who have given me a shoulder to lean on when the going gets tough, who have shown me different ways of thinking, who have given of themselves so freely and allowed me to be part of their worlds too.Thanks to you all for making my G+ feel like home. +Shared Circles on G+ +CircleCount +The Best Circles on Google+ +Public Circles 2012-09-20 19:12:5210155236

In celebration of 100 million, I give you 100 active users that make Google+ the amazing network that it is.These people post about a variety of subjects from food to tech to just pure awesome.

"We are not the lovable nerdy protagonist who’s lovable because he’s the protagonist. We’re not guaranteed to get laid by the hot chick of our dreams as long as we work hard enough at it. There isn’t a team of writers or a studio audience pulling for us to triumph by 'getting the girl' in the end. And when our clever ruses and schemes to 'get girls' fail, it’s not because the girls are too stupid or too bitchy or too shallow to play by those unwritten rules we’ve absorbed."

Create a family for a baby without one: Bring the joy of a child into our home

Earlier this week I announced that +Angel Searle and I are adopting (http://goo.gl/KyLH4O). We are overjoyed at the opportunity to provide a loving home for a child who would otherwise be on their own. While we are eager to bring home our new bundle of joy, the process includes many obstacles. 

The primary obstacle is funding it. A private adoption situation like ours still includes the cost for the attorney. We also have the filing and review fees with the state, and of course, medical costs, travel costs - you get the picture. We will find a way to make it work, but I can’t deny that it will be quite the financial challenge.

We will find a way to make it work, but I can’t deny that it will be quite the financial challenge.

If there's one thing I've found, it's that I can place my trust in the good hearts of people. Time and again, my friends and followers both online and offline have come through in support of my family and the people I love. So I come to ask for your help. 

Will you consider helping us bring the joy of another child into our home, and give a family to a child without one? 

See our adoption fund here: http://www.gofundme.com/79r5r0

I understand if you’re not be in a position to offer a donation, but would you share this post and help us spread this message? Most of us aren’t rich, and none of us are perfect, but I know that so many of you have a warm heart, and I thank you for your support.

Although I'm tempted to say I'm posting this in honor of International Women's Day, I would feel the need to post it anyway. Although it may seem easy to scoff at, this is a very real issue and a very big problem.

"I’m not trying to judge Paquin for getting married, or for being a breeder—I don’t think she’s setting back the fight for queer rights by participating in wedlock or procreation. . . On the contrary, I think it’s really great that Paquin has made the decision to remain so vocal about her sexuality, regardless of her current relationship. Doing so helps refute one of those other annoying assumptions about bisexuals: 'It’s just a phase.' Sure Paquin ended up with a man, but she still identifies as bi, which means that her past relationships with women weren’t 'experiments.' Remaining steadfastly 'bisexual' (or queer) tells the world that sexual fluidity is a real, lasting, important part of our being”

Really? I love the irony in how they are calling other people idiots. But they're not racists. Nope.

Full disclosure, I did not watch any of the pageant or even hear about it at all until this morning. If people want to be sad because they were rooting for someone else, that's understandable. However, these types of complaints are not okay, and I hope they learn that when these public tweets come back to haunt them.

Here's what the perfect women's magazine would look like

Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett and Holly Baxter of the Vagenda Magazine have put together their list of what they want believe would make the ultimate womens magazine publication

In this world of "Celebrity breakdowns gone wild: side-boob edition", "Make-up tips for the birth of the royal baby", and "Is guacamole making you fat and infertile?", it’s not hard to have gripes with the institution that is The Women’s Magazine. You only have to lazily scan a news stand in any local supermarket to see that the content in publications in the "Women’s Lifestyle" section is lacking. This celeb is too fat; this one has a diet you can follow; this one’s biological clock is ticking; this one is doing an interview on how motherhood and the workplace are incompatible. As we currently make a living from slagging off the most insidious examples from these Conde Nasties and National Magazine meanies, attempting to defend ourselves and womankind from guacamole-induced anxiety and side-boob panic with a semblance of satire. Which is all very well, our critics cry, but what would our ideal magazine look like? Well, here are our recommendations:

Every model would have her own limbs. Nary a tacked on, Photoshopped leg nor a slimmed down waist would marr the pages.
 
The diversity of the models’ ethnicities and body types would directly reflect that of the general population. Being a size 14 would not be treated as some kind of freaky health condition whose only possible treatment is a wrap-dress, and the fashion spreads would cease to look like a brochure for a summer camp for Aryan teenagers. Healthy BMIs only. No under sixteens.
 
No cosmetic surgery advertorial. Especially not positioned next to features on "body confidence".
 
Cover interviews with interesting women who have done fabulous things, none of whom employ the terms "down to earth", "normal", or "just like you". No picking over of their diets and exercise regimes. No PR puff. Instead, questions would cover a wide range of topics, ranging from "what’s your horrible terrible?" and "how do you think Obama’s doing?" to "if you could live inside a painting like the little girl in Roald Dahl’s The Witches does, which painting would it be?"
 
Since many of us do have a secret interest in why Kanye called his baby North West or whether or not Boris Johnson and Eminem share a hairdresser, the celebrity section would remain. Only this time, there aren’t any sneaky photographs taken by photographers hiding in the bushes and judging women’s baby weight or headlines proclaiming their imminent breakdowns - "Rihanna looks painfully thin and probably broken inside as she wanders desolately along the Hollywood Boulevard with a heartbreak-flavoured ice cream, thinking of Chris" - will be absent. Tired gender stereotyping will be done away with entirely.
 
In place of where the latest woman would be held up as a tragic spinster or hysterical diva, editors will be encouraged to be far more creative. "Megan Fox emerges from a local bar, looking for all the world like she’s had an exhaustive argument about the Israel-Palestine conflict and eventually ducked out because she was getting shouted over by some bigot who didn’t even know anything about West Bank settlements", as an example. "50 Cent is spotted hand-in-hand with a twentysomething woman: could this be the handshake marking a new technological business deal in nearby Silicon Valley? More news on her possible profession inside", as another.
 
The Fashion Section. Wheeling out the same old Topshop jeans to illustrate "What To Wear" would be replaced with something a little more inspiring, such as artistic fashion photography and an encouragement to experiment with style. If you like those embroidered knee warmers, then you should go ahead and wear them without judgement.
 
There would be a moratorium on using "the circle of shame" to point out where celebrities went wrong with their red carpet dresses. The perfect fashion section would be a nurturing environment from which the readership could emerge, bright-eyed and unafraid, to toddle out onto the high street and buy whatever the hell they want. No more tears in the changing room because Cosmo said you couldn’t do disco knickers.
 
Why not show us what women across the world are wearing? We’re a nosy bunch, but most of us know that the women in current so-called "street style" sections in magazines are not only school friends of the features ed but are also styled and preened to within an inch of their lives. What we’d really like to see is Anna from Norway’s amazing hangover grocery shopping outfit, and how she has successfully merged the steam punk aesthetic with silky pyjama bottoms and a beanie. Also: no fascinators.
 
Oh, and stop telling us "this dress will change your life".
 
There would be no further attempt to correlate the female body type with that of a fruit or root vegetable. We are not an apple, a pear, or a butternut squash, and, being adult women, most of us know how to dress ourselves.
 
Oh, and we couldn’t give a shit what’s in your beach bag.
 
There would be a ban the phrases "OMG", "totes", and "amazeballs", and a shift towards the use of plain English. Hashtags would remain the preserve of Twitter, and portmanteau phrases such as "babymoon", "momtrepreneur" and "yestergay" would be consigned to the dustbin.
 
The female columnists would write hilarious, clever pieces on a wide range of issues. We’ve got to a point now where there’s nothing to be said about multi-dating, and referring to your partner as "the boy" when you’re in your mid-thirties and peppering your copy with "lolz" just begins to look as though you’re desperately trying to be down with the kids. Can we get some new blood please? Preferably someone with an interesting life.
 
Make-up. Yeah, we like it, but it doesn’t merit the 60 or so pages that are currently given over to it, especially as we’re onto you fuckers and we know that much of it is much of a muchness. Why not replace it with usefull stuff, a la Rookie Mag, such as how to buy a used car or make your own lipbalm, or a story about losing your virginity? Or even, y’know, women’s issues or politics?
 
Please, stop reminding us about our ovaries having a sell-by-date. Believe us, we know.
 
Accept that we are never going to be as obsessed with scatter cushions as you are. Bear in mind that the "fuck it" generation are only just coming of age. Home decoration tips for the impoverished, please.
 
Tell us not that mayonnaise is "sinful". It is a condiment made almost entirely from egg yolks, we never assumed it was healthy. We’d like to see fridge raiders features, in which dieticians berate B-list celebrities for the food they eat, replaced by a "Woman v Food" challenge. Holly Willoughby has a god-awful hangover- can she rustle up a cure from the contents of her cupboard? And will it all fit in her mouth at once?
 
Health. At present, magazines are failing to cover the full spectrum of all the things that can go wrong with your vagina. They have the twin pillars of cystitis and thrush pretty much down, but we’re talking rarer shit, like vestibulitis and syphilis. It’s good to share, and it’s good to be aware.
 
The sex tips would immediately become more female-focused - no more "Slap on a PVC G-string and gyrate around a £200 pole until your boyfriend feels up to it", and no more pretending that getting your boyfriend to test spaghetti sauce by licking it off your breasts is conducive to good sex or good cooking. The "U-spot", "T-spot", "VV-spot", and all the other imaginary "spots" that have been made up by desperate editors will be replaced by a more sensible and fruitful focus on the clitoris. Oh, and no more orgasm-shaming. Reading another feature called "The 45 orgasms you must totally have NOW otherwise you’re a loser" will pretty much kill our will to live.
 
Books. We read them. And not just books by women with names like Felicity Meadows and that tell the tale of a small-town girl who moves to the big city only to discover that her boyfriend is a tool.
 
If you could mention a woman in print without putting her height and weight next to her name in brackets, then that would be awesome, ta.

Great post, +Mike Searle. Important for everyone to read and to watch the video.

My Daughter Will Be Victimized 

My beautiful joy-filled three-year old princess will be a victim of Rape, Sexual Abuse, Sexual Assault, Sexual Harassment, and/or Sexism. As harsh as it sounds, that statement is almost a certainty, and I hope against hope that it is only the latter, and none of the former.

According to +RAINN, one out of every six American women will be the victim of some form of sexual assault, and 80% of them will be under the age of thirty when it happens. More than half of the incidents will never even be reported (http://www.rainn.org/get-information/statistics/sexual-assault-victims). 

This breaks my heart in the very worst of ways. As a father I am deeply concerned for the well being of my daughter. As a man I am deeply ashamed of the actions of so many members of my gender. And as a human I am deeply saddened to see so many other people being treated so badly.

Much of this knowledge is nothing new. As a society we've known about these issues (even if we tried to ignore them) for decades, if not centuries. Patriarchy, rape culture, sexism, these aren't new ideas, but since I became a father to a girl I have become so much more acutely aware of them.

This video in particular was brought to my attention by my friend +Annika O'Brien, who shared an original post from +Liz Quilty (https://plus.google.com/u/0/114228869493885222559/posts/TAdq1WhG3fG) This is an excerpt of what Annika had to say in her post about it:

"I gave +Mat Luschek permission to use my static image in a public Hangout one evening over a year ago. Hours later he was apologizing to me for his gender. There were men fighting over him and threatening him if he didn't respond, believing they were talking to me. He only saw a few hours of what it's like, but it was a good experiment for him. Women regularly endure this sort of stuff."

She then went on to say,

"This was shared with me via +Christopher Knorr a man who continuously stops men in my comment section to point out what they are doing and make them look like idiots when they tell me how much they love me and leave their details publicly. If more men stepped up to put these creepers in their place, it would be a better Internet."

Annika's description may be focused on her experience online, but the context is an easy parallel for the daily life of the average woman. 

THIS is the world into which I am bringing my daughter. A world where her possession of a vagina means that she will be a victim of some form of sexual assault, at worst, or at best that she'll be subject to a lifetime of a near-constant barrage of belittling and sexist remarks and circumstances.

This is a world where the significant majority of women are having the point forcefully demonstrated that they only worth something to the degree that the desecration of their body, mind, and heart can bring pleasure to another.

This is NOT ok. 

I was raised in the same patriarchal heteronormative world as the rest of you. Most all of us guys were brought up with a shared mindset: 

"Ogling a woman is normal because it demonstrates our masculinity and sends a clear message about our sexual desire."

"It is normal to subtly (or not so subtly) touch a woman inappropriately and then play it off as a "joke" because it demonstrates our love of the female form in a way that is less intimidating than rape."

"Verbally belittling and/or sexually objectifying a woman is normal because she needs a reminder that she doesn't belong on the same level as men and her "place" is either in the kitchen or the bedroom."

"Taking sexual advantage of a woman is normal when '_she put herself in that situation; she was drunk/high/whatever; she wore provocative clothing.'"_

Men, I get it. Us guys, we are so very easily aroused by visual stimuli that it borders on ludicrous. The very hint of sexual potential is enough to make our brains behave different than usual, and all of a sudden we become very singularly focused. But the above statements are NOT true. They defy reality, and they are not license to stop acting like decent human beings. 

Sexism is hard to deal with. It is so entrenched in our culture that it can be hard to recognize, and fear of how others will view us can keep us from reacting to stop sexism when we do recognize it. I suggest that we need more guys like +Christopher Knorr. We need guys who see sexism and take action to prevent it: online and offline. But more than reacting, we need guys who will proactively base how they treat others not on their gender, but on their humanity.

Try forgetting about her vagina for a second and treating a woman like an actual person first. Maybe if the men of our culture can stop thinking of a woman as merely a place to park their penis then we can be bothered to give her the respect and decency deserved by any fellow human.

I want to show my daughter that her gender is not a limitation or a curse, but just an extension of her humanity; that she can be both beautiful and brainy. That she can love science and shoes. That she is not forced to "settle" for femininity as some kind of second-class status or strive for for some kind of quasi-masculinity to have significance. That her opinions, talents, and ambitions are every bit as critical to the world as any man's.

I plan to raise my daughter as best I can. I hope to emulate for her what a good man is, while simultaneously showing her that she deserves to be treated well and should not tolerate sexism. I want my daughter to live in a world where she does not have to accept her importance being tied to the size of her breasts, or have to choose between tolerating the roving eyes and hands of random men or being labeled a bitch.

But I need help. If my daughter is ever to live in that kind of world then I need mother and fathers, women and men; like you, to commit to raising your daughters to view themselves as deserving just as much human decency as men, raising your sons to view women as deserving just as much human decency as themselves, and standing up and calling out sexism when you see it. I hope you'll do that for my daughter, and for all daughters.
