Re: Feminism is Good but Needs to be More Extreme

This thread has descended into being more about what Skeezy doesn't like about gay people, which seems pretty far from topic. This thread is locked.

Re: what's the last movie you saw?

Say Anything came up last night on a Modern Family rerun that interrupted my reading.



I saw Dredd again. Still one of my favorite action films this decade.

Re: Feminism is Good but Needs to be More Extreme

I don't see people practicing it further and I am starting to hear less and less success stories by feminists nowadays. I wanted to ask the initial question because all of this requires some more definition before I can agree or disagree. The word "extreme" alone allows Pikachu to object on the bas...

Re: Banned from the Feminism Subreddit

In my experience bans happen for a couple of reasons: 1. Something was taken as a personal attack, particularly when an argument got heated. 2. You violated some rule of conduct or etiquette. (My guess, after looking at the subreddit and your own reddit profile? "- all posts must come from an educat...

Re: gender recognition

I haven't flamed anyone in this thread, I don't deserve it. Yes, you have. Aum, you claimed I couldn't "handle this kind of counterinformation" and put words in my mouth. You attacked trans men who get pregnant and misgendered them by calling them "a biological woman" (hence my comment on "trans-ha...

Re: It might be time for a baby.

I got curious on the question of single parent families. Definitely, I think financial stability or having some sort of support network (family, friends) is better than not having it. I found this article ( https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4886836/ ). The article does point out that seve...

Re: gender recognition

You can call me trans-phobic all you want but it's just a bait and switch away from the authenticity of my argument. You're the only one to use that term. I did make several pointed criticisms of what you were saying. I did call it a trans-hating diatribe, and I stand by that description. Otherwise...

Re: How well would you survive in the wilderness?

I could probably avoid most trouble. Making a basic shelter, not making it using poison ivy, and items like that? Fine. Fire? Oh, I'd definitely want a fire starter for that. Food and water would be the big constraint. I don't know how to make traps or weapons to replace, say, a bow and arrow, and I...

Re: The Becky Thing

Just to be clear, I appreciated you bringing up the article. It's been a good opportunity for me to make some connections and self-assess. For instance, in the "Becca" section, one of the examples he lists is white women who work at nonprofits. I just think that's silly. Just because a white woman w...

My current laptop is from the Dell Inspiron line. I got it for ~$300 US at a store, mainly to use the internet and write. I find the 11.6" monitor to be a good size for me (there may be similar models with larger monitor sizes). The touch screen is fun to play with on occasion. Most important for me...

Let me represent the discussion as I see it. melsbells describes a short conversation where her kid asked whether he's a boy, they discussed the question briefly, and then he said he was a boy. Her unease focused on how her kid was already getting a lot of external signalling about gender roles: But...

It's an interesting article . Just personally, sweeping generalization isn't something I'm that interested in if I can avoid it. I wouldn't write the article that way.

Mels, I know Cordelia Fine's books on gender and neuroscience address little kids and the infleunces they receive at certain points.
