Re: Have you ever pretended you don't know something?

I don't think I can do it. Years of engineering has drilled into my head that if I know something, zomg prove I'm smart and dive in! I'm actually trying to de-program my instinct to take a stab at something I do not know anything about. It's like a switch I can't turn off. I've never heard of Žižek ...

Re: Pokemon go quest system

Re: MGTOW: Marriage

The funny thing about this thread, and maybe MGOTW in general, is that we’re sitting here debating while we’re all benefitting from a whole society where people work together, like each other, and trust each other. There are big things like a woman trusting a man enough to get pregnant because she k...

I make more money than my husband. He also likes to cook. We’re trying this new age feminist idea that we both just do what we’re good at. Is this crazy, are we doomed or what?

Re: MGTOW: Feminism Vs Transgenders

Yes, there is some controversy among feminists on the topic of gender identity. You'll find that most of our forum is very accepting of transgender people, you'll also find the other side, especially the TERFs, who are a minority I strongly disagree with. I think we need to support transgender peopl...

Well, i don't really know how nice his school is, to be honest... but certainly, poverty does not have a skin color. I'll just pick on this bit. According to this, the average salary for a black person in the US is about half that of a white person in the US: http://www.businessinsider.com/heres-me...

Re: MGTOW: I'm sorry I'm male

Telling someone they are privileged is not racist. You are not a victim of racism because someone called you out on your white privilege. You also can’t cancel out your privilege by pointing at some other black kid that got the same education you did, because at the end of the day you’re still white...

Re: MGTOW: I'm sorry I'm male

Being sorry for privilege isn’t a productive approach. Using your privilege for good, that’s productive. If you got a great education how can you help others get the same education? If you don’t experience racism how can you amplify the voices of people who have experienced racism so we can stamp it...

I guess my big question about MGTOW is why does it feel like they're not going far enough away?

How much are you guys paying attention to the celebrity rape/harassment charges and sheer number of women coming out with stories about how many, many men we used to like are actually harassing jerks?

Re: When do you outsource parenting?
