Re: Shitty Air Quality

You need to buy an air pollution mask it'll make you feel much better. When I lived on Shijiazhuang I went through several packs a month. If I didn't wear them in the winter my throat and nose would burn after less than ten minutes of walking outside.

Re: Special Event for Women discriminatory?

Yeah I think this is discrimination it doesn't matter that there other screenings for men or that are open to everyone wouldn't that be separate but equal. All in all I just think this a stupid dumb idea and I can't think of any reason why a non white person would go. If your white go ahead and go b...

Re: Transwomen and Sports?

No you can change your gender but you can't change your sex. So no I don't think somone born a male should be able to compete against someone born a female in competitive sports. If you mean inter-mural sports or just a quick pick up game of basketball or game of baseball between friends on the week...

Re: Feminism in Popular Cinema

I think your only looking at in one way. It's still straight white people for the most part. You wont see a Star Wars movie staring a black woman or an Asian woman. But I'm not entirely blaming this on "Hollywood" either. I kind of think globalization is making media less ethnically diverse. A good ...

Re: DEATH PENALTY FOR HURTING & KILLING WOMEN !!!

It should be something that is used pretty rarely actually it shouldn't be used until the Criminal Justice system can be improved to try ca...

Re: I voted for Trump in my state's primaries

Dude I don't give a f*ck who you voted for. I'm an independent so I can't vote in primaries in my home state. I also don't live in America anymore anyway. Just vote for whoever you want. I will probably vote for hilary in November even though I think the Clinton s are step above the Bush family.

Re: Aren't men's rights important? (Split from Feminist FAQ)

Re: Criminalization of drug use during pregnancy to end in Tennessee

Actually I think it would be better if the penalty was rehab and being sent to a therapist. It's pretty dumb to criminalize it especially because there is an almost certainty custody will be taken away. Why not try and fix the problem with addiction so there is less of a strain on social services. T...

Re: Why do women have to take their husband's last name?

I look at this as a non issue for the most part.

But their are other reasons for peop...
