Re: How on earth do you keep track of your passwords???

I have a password method and a series of mnemonics that I can't really talk about. And I have a lot of passwords; the ones I use less I do have written down and kept in a secure place.

This is not my password method:

Re: Fb arguments

I like the idea of using the personal conversations rule in life. My biggest issue lately has been with friends of friends. Like, I don't always agree with my friends, but that's okay, because the range of disagreement does not include them being a white supremacist or equivocating about white supre...

Re: Total Solar Eclipse 2017

^ Public universities and organizations also have stocks of glasses. I know my school will be giving them out for free the day of the eclipse. And I used a pinhole projector in elementary school; it was really cool! It's not like I want to stare at the sun for that long anyway. I will get to see the...

Re: Higher Priority Feminism vs race.

There are both gender hurdles and racial hurdles in place. In the U.S. I say racism does have the bigger hurdle but I could entirely be wrong as its only my point of view. I respect that. Overt racism like the terrorist attack and racist protest in Charlottesville, VA yesterday shows that white supr...

Re: Clock-Ticking

It's just. I'm 35. And I want to birth our child, so badly. My clock started a while ago, but now it seems like almost perfect timing. But with starting/re-starting my physically-oriented career, and building new finances, it seems like we'll be waiting. I'm 31, my wife is 30, and we both are tryin...

Re: "Let her speak, please!" - mansplaining at the World Science Festival

It doesn't matter what she is
Except that a big issue is that she's experiencing mistreatment because of her gender, and you're misgendering her.

Re: Names and gender in comic books

I'm not taking seriously the part you wrote when you hadn't read the article, Skeezy. One fundamental misunderstanding I'm spotting: what the graphs mean. They don't mean "the female characters that have strength and other skills ... have no representation in the chart." They are represented. The ch...

Re: Higher Priority Feminism vs race.

1. Agree with rowan. Focusing on "women as a whole" sometimes becomes problematic because that either lacks enough context to be useful or often only really helps white women. First wave feminism was like that - tried hard, had some good goals, but left a lot of people out. Pop-feminism also sometim...

Re: "Let her speak, please!" - mansplaining at the World Science Festival

I agree with Nech. I've been the only guy in a gender studies class. I've been one of a couple. I've grappled hard with challenging ideas hat I disagreed with. When I did speak up, I found a generally receptive audience who returned the respect I gave. Pikachu, two things. First, if the class was co...

Re: Rape culture doesn't exist

If rape is normalized, then by default all men are potential rapists. No? If rape culture refers to the normalization of rape through how it's treated in various social interactions and institutions, then that does not refer to seeing every individual as a potential rapist. "Interactions" doesn't p...
