Re: The "biological argument"

I've been reading Testosterone Rex, and even though I've known some of the broad sweeps of the argument, I've learned a lot about the history of gender, sex, and the sciences. I've heard good things about that book, but I then forgot about it and didn't get one to myself. I will look into it. but i...

Re: Inclusion vs. revolution: "Bourgeois Feminist Bullshit"

allowances for every possible variation of “feminism” under the logic that If Women Want It, It Must Be Feminist. No matter how poisonous the effects may be sigh... when I'm on /r/feminism, I often see people from men's rights going there with fallacies. I was happy to see Nairs's explanation of ho...

Re: Donald Trump? :(

As terrified as I am about what will happen during this presidency and its extended effects, I am proud to know so many people who are not going to just let it happen. I'm not US citizen, but I get what you mean. We outsiders also worry about his presidency, considering US has a big influence world...

If we're talking free dancing at a club or dance hall, I'm pretty good :)


Ballet is cool.

According with my parameters, I'm a great dancer. According with society's parameters, I'm terrible.

Re: How comfortable do you feel asking about someone's race?

I'm not quite sure but it seems like you're not asking someone's actual race then, which is what the question here is about? Or do you actually ask "what's your race" but mean "what city are you from"? Cuz that would confuse the heck out of me. I should've quoted the youtube vid...

The "biological argument"

This is a post I made on reddit.com/r/Feminism/ regarding the use of biological arguments regarding sexuality(and mating)/gender, and I wanted to share here. Here is the text with fixed links: The video submitted here days ago Trans women are not "biologically male" | Riley J. Dennis caugh...

Re: How comfortable do you feel asking about someone's race?

I don't ask people about that. To be honest I'm usually not that curious? It could have something to do with growing up in a fairly diverse area? But maybe not. In the case of Brazil (which is pretty diverse): we do ask a lot, but not because of someones' etinicity, just curiosity :lol: 99.99% we j...

Re: Women only companies. A disaster!

Reading these stories, if they are real (because, to be honest one seems like gossip site and the other is blogspot) it just seems to me that the boss hired based solely on gender instead of professionalism. Business is business, you don't put someone under the position of employee, which you will g...

Re: Inclusion vs. revolution: "Bourgeois Feminist Bullshit"

Traister (which I've never read before), from what Nair tells, puts feminism in service of capitalism. Which caught my attention, because in some excerpts of "Why Feminism?", that I'm currently reading, Lynne Segal clearly demonstrate that, during the evolution of feminism, socialism was b...

Re: Lack of women in music lists

So, genre could be a factor. However, publishers inclining to publish one band because rather than the other because of of its members color/gender/religion/etc could be another factor. Before the public (the fans), I can think of two filters: 1. The artistic filter: 1.a) "I'm a female singer t...

Bioinformatician sounds really cool! What do you do? Metagenomics! The difference from genomics is that metagenomics involve sequencing all DNA in an enviromental sample (could be a sample of water, of soil, of human gut!).

Re: If America's First?

Ah I'll have to watch later. What do people think about their pointing out their own racist (& sexist) things? I'm glad people are recognizing them, but are they going to try to fix them? I've read (in many places), in the case of Germany, that they actually teach their children in school (arou...

Re: what are you reading?

I'm reading a couple of things. 1. Today I started "Why Feminism?" by Lynne Segal. It's quite an old book (1999), but maybe it's a start point for me. I'm in the middle of the first chapter, and so far she explained differences of feminism during its different generations (70s to 90s), and...

So, about me: I'm Felipe, 26 years old guy, and I live in Brazil. As a male, that was raised in a small town, living around people with a strong patriarchal culture, it's not difficult to guess that I made some stupid mistakes. Mostly during adolescence, the age of stupidity, and mostly under influe...
