Re: what's good with peanut butter?

Two slices of bread.

Yes, I ate peanut butter and nothing else sandwiches as a kid. I was a weird one. These days, I'll go with jelly or Nutella.

Re: Abortion - My Stance and Why I Can Still Be a Feminist

The comparison becomes no less flimsy when you repeat it. Land is not a body; a born slave is not a fetus. The connecting similarity does not hold if you disagree about the status of a fetus or a body. Also, the sexism in being anti-choice is still there. You're taking a question with no clear answe...

Re: What will you do for our talent show?

I will sing any song picked by an audience. If I know it, I will reasonably approximate the vocals. If I don't know it, I will make up what seems in my mind like a suitable beat.

Re: What power tools do you own?

I have an electric drill. I grew up around power tools and took a shop class, but this is the first time in a long time that I'll even have to use a mower, so I've been away from it for some time.

Re: Abortion - My Stance and Why I Can Still Be a Feminist

In a world where only women have arms, why is it okay for a ban on assault to cover a ban on punching (a rule that is only applicable to women who who have arms)? And in a world where only women can bear children, why is it not okay for a ban on murder to cover a ban on abortion (a rule that is onl...

Re: Abortion - My Stance and Why I Can Still Be a Feminist

If you create a policy that knowingly affects one sex and not the other, then it has everything to do with sex. It may or may not strictly be sexist, but it's definitely related to sex in effect. "Pro-life" is not a stance nature takes, and so it is not nature that risks being sexist here, but whoev...

Re: Called it, sort of

I'm not clicking the YouTube link, just FYI. As for the original article, it's from a website with a clear far-right bias. Several of the written comments in the article suggest a bias against the LGBT movement. For instance, they paint the LGBT movement as a movement that was always pedophilic: Yet...

Re: Abortion - My Stance and Why I Can Still Be a Feminist

1. Just regarding the subject of your thread, the only part of the argument pertaining to why you can still be a feminist is this: And so, as you can see, my viewpoint has nothing to do with sex, and if men could bear children, my stance would be exactly the same. This is why I am pro-life, and why ...

^ Same. I overheard and watched Pride and Prejudice and every film involving Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Colin Firth, and other romantic comedy stars many a time. Tom Hanks, too.

Re: Compromise between Conservatives/TERFeminism and Transfeminism.

Is greater regulation of trans bodies a viable solution to gender policing? I don't think that's a great answer. If you require trans women to prove they're women, then you're perpetuating an expectation that trans women are not automatically women. If what allows them to be women in a specific spac...
