The two are related but they are talking about different things. Equality means everyone gets the same constitutional protections as well as the same human rights, without bias or prejudice. It does not mean that we're ignoring the factors that make things unfair for certain groups while giving ever...

Re: MGTOW: Enthusiastic Consent

I don't relate to this issue. In the gay world sex is openly discussed and agreed upon before it ever happens. Men even discuss limits on what can and can't happen, their likes and dislikes, etc. To me it would be kind of crazy to have sex without talking about sex beforehand. Well, we are talking ...

Re: The female price of male pleasure

I don't really see the point of comparing which sex has the best pleasure or the worst sexual experience at the expense of the other sex. Our whole society is woefully sexually repressed with a lot of internalized shame. It's not helping anyone to continue the shaming. A lot of people don't even kno...

Re: How do we beat these misogynists?

I'm an idealist so in my mind we just need to not become like what we oppose. I understand action must be made but with wisdom and compassion. I've forgiven people who mistreated me. Verbally. I've had people get physical but I've returned the aggression in the past so we were both in the wrong. In...

Re: How do we beat these misogynists?

Humiliation and public shaming tend to shut most people up, if there are sufficient numbers. I just can't help but feel it's a double standard. Humilation, public shaming. These are things I don't want done to me. I know itd shut me up. But why use the same aggressive ideas. It's not a bad idea, su...

I'm not a big Burning Man person but I have been to some events and the most hetero men wear skirts, dresses, tutus, you name it. At the end of the day it's just another piece of clothi...

Re: US Politics making Global waves.

Trump is an expert at slight of hand. The public is effectively distracted and divided while he wrecks the country for his own benefit #1 and his party's benefit #2. Sad to see. I think we are in for some dark times ahead, long-term ones. The institution of western democracy is at a cross-roads.

Re: A Question, but sort of a rant: My New Thoughts of Being Apolitical

In some districts doxxing is illegal and if it's a person in authority at your school doing it, I would take your complaint straight to the dean or whoever's at the top. Most schools have a harassment policy and doxxing certainly falls under that because it compromises a person's sense of safety and...

I didn't enjoy it... Most of the film's play time was wasted on watching the rebels being chased, and on Luke being a douchebag and refusing to teach Ray.

Re: Debunking Ben Shapiro Transgender claims

He uses a lot of the classic techniques, like strawmen, bait and switch, slippery slope, and changing the goalposts. Like comparing a trans person to someone who's 20 claiming they're 60, or a white person saying they're black. As if any of that really happens. He just says it with such conviction t...

Re: MGTOW: Introduction

It's interesting because in the gay male world, there are a lot of men who give up on men for all the same reasons MGTOW are outlining about women. They become celibate or just do one-offs but they never get into emotional entanglement. So these are men that shy away from other men. Clearly this isn...
