Re: Feminism outside the West

So, what if single individuals ask for help because they are not allowed to speak ou, and cannot lead an argument themselves. Is that enough of a legitimation or do you need an official institution in that country to legitimize your doing? I don't know of any sexism or discrimination done in Standoi...

Re: The Gentrification of Standing Rock

Hi everyone, In order to make it easier to reply to all of you, I have taken a normal way of quoting though copy and paste and haven't changed it (when I adapted pronouns “I”>”you”, I did it through round brackets). You can control it. It should be noted that this thread is a follow-up to "Femi...

Re: Brexit

Hi! I think there are four main reasons why UK has left the EU. 1) Britain did not consider themselves European to begin with. Thatcher convinced UK to join the EEC (the former EU) only to have economic advantages. Before the UK tried to make another economic partnership, the EFTA, whic was not as p...

Re: Pneumonia

Hi! I'm sorry to hear about your condition, and hope you get well soon. I personally like yogi tea, which uses orange peels and ayurvedic spices like cinnamon, ginger and cardamom. Since you said you like ginger, maybe you like this, too. It has a quite spicy flavour and there are many variations ou...

Re: Presentation

Yes, Schnitzel are great! There are tasty ones made with soya beans. Don't get me wrong, Schnitzel are popular in Germany. Just don't tell an Austrian that Schnitzel are German. By the way, being south-east of Germany, Bavaria is the federal state most close to Austria, but it is also the most indep...

Re: The Gentrification of Standing Rock

It can actively be harmful. If you're taking energy away from the people who are actually helping, if you're replacing a bad system was a different bad system. If you're causing problems. These are all bad things. These are why men so often get shut down in feminist spaces, this is why white women ...

Re: The Gentrification of Standing Rock

Well, I'm happy these activists at least tried to. I think counting western successes is an unpopular argument, whether infrastructure, reforms, technology (which can be a bad thing as well) or medicine. Discriminatory views are accepted today as long as they are against what is perceived to be the ...

Re: Feminism outside the West

Hi Aum, I think as well that there is a cultural barrier. However, I wouldn’t make it a black-or-white issue, where either you dictate them what to do or ignore the thing, altogether. I think there are degrees between these two extremes. That’s why I advocated means through which they can express th...

Hi Pikachu! thank you for joining the discussion! Nonetheless, I think you are being a bit harsh towards modern feminists. There are many useful causes of feminism as there are many unsolved issues among the sexes. I think this forum is already great in order to talk about important issues, and you ...

Feminism outside the West

Hello everyone, I have a fairly touchy subject, and that is exactly why I find it important to talk about it. I do not intend to offend anybody. Please tell me if you find the question offensive or a relevant topic or both. I've met a woman named Sarah in a small town in North England, who told me s...

Rowan, if you already have a job, and I see from your Spacefem profile (sorry for watching! ^^' ) that you teach college students, which I suppose you are perfectly happy with, then I guess the main aim of your LinkedIn profile is not to attract employers, but to present yourself in a more general f...

Re: Women's consent in bed?

Hi Chad! I think it sounds a bit harsh as you state it. I think sometimes you can indeed non-verbally agree to sex, especially if the women are leading (then, there is no doubt); but if she doesn’t like it anymore, don’t do it, even if you have already a protection on; notice that women may be unsur...

Can you find any colleagues on it? Quantity and quality of relations are key.

A possible employer will judge you based on your qualifications. Maybe you have ...

I'll try to be the one to make it interesting: if you see other bored people, do crazy/stupid/unexpected stuff (without anyone coming to harm), find common ground with people, chat about interesting topics - hobbies, work, family, how you got to know the person who invited you, etc. If there is noth...

Hi DarkOne! Hi Nachos! Thank you for welcoming me! You can hardly find any German restaurant in a non-German-speaking country.

Re: Why are men so ready to complain...

I’m sorry to say, but I don’t think that putting only a urinal is a good idea. Doing number 1s and 2s should be a natural right, regardless of one's sex. Having a urinal, on the other hand, is counterproductive. In my view, it was simply poorly planned….and if guys have to do number 2s, I think they...
