Re: Promoting Gender Equality

Actually, feminists argue that it's those very gender stereotypes as mentioned by lillerina is at the root of many MRA issues, including sentencing disparity.

Re: Rape culture doesn't exist

"Rape culture" is Schrodinger's rapist http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/Schr%C3%B6dinger%27s_Rapist . This idea that every male is a potential rapist, even one's own sons, so one should treat them as such: http://www.dailywire.com/news/18590/monster-bigoted-feminist-writer-shames-her-amanda-prest...

Re: do you have dice with more than six sides?

I have my standard dice for D&D, so the answer is yes.

Anyone who watches Critical Role should be jealous of Laura Bailey's collection of 20-sided dice.

Re: Promoting Gender Equality

Feminism doesn't address most of those. Feminism addresses those aspects where women are disadvantaged and seeks to improve conditions for women and only pays any attention to men and boys from the perspective of how it relates to helping women. The MRA addresses the aspects where men are disadvant...

Re: what's the last movie you saw?

My post contains spoilers. Saw Wonder Woman two nights ago. I was generally impressed. They did a better job than all the recent superhero movies IMO. The dialogue was not too cheesy. The one egregious error that they made which I can't really forgive them for is that Diana was actually breathed to...

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 ...

Wonder Woman - For me, best DC movie since Dark Knight. Themyscira is beautiful. It's like they discovered there was more to a color palette than grey and it is just a gorgeous landscape. They really take advantage of the Greek mythos that inspired Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot is great and I don't see a ...

Re: Special Event for Women discriminatory?

This is a charity event I may have missed something in the news coverage. How is it a charity event? I didn't see any mention of charities or raising money for a particular cause. My mistake. Only a few theaters are giving proceeds to local women's charities: http://www.cnbc.com/2017/05/26/women-on...

Re: Special Event for Women discriminatory?

It feels unnecessary. There's a time and a place where women-only spaces are appropriate or even necessary to provide support and safety. Maybe this is my privilege talking, but a screening for a Wonder Woman movie hardly warrants this type of safety net. Yes, women-only spaces are absolutely discr...

Just an aside, I'd watch a Disney Princess heist film.
