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 c...

Re: Promoting Gender Equality

The more accomplished the female character, the more violent the response.

I've noticed a disturbing trend of dudes reacting to female characters who get pushed and put over, by creating very violent scenarios. The stuff I have heard before. These include ripping their breasts off, grabbing them by the breasts and hurling them into rocks, cutting their heads off, dismember...

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 disadvanta...

Re: Feminism outside the West

Western Feminists are too scared of looking "colonial" so don't take the lead role. Middle Eastern women are scared of getting murdered so besides a small handful of extremely brave activists are not empowered enough to take a lead role in these issues. Western governments won't put pressure on them...

Re: Falsifying the utility of the Feminism Label

Any stigma the word Feminism carries will also be picked up by the new label. Be it HeforShe or Social Justice or whatever. The word only derives meaning from the ideology behind it. Changing the name is an argument to win support through obfuscation of the ideology. But it sounds to me this person ...

Re: Why are men so ready to complain...

The only way to stop men from being so ready to whine and complain about everything is to take away their privilege. Show them that their privilege doesn't count. Don't let them use it. Stand up to them. And most importantly, teach the next generation of men that they should be helping those who ha...

Re: Wonder Woman no longer honorary UN Women mascot.

Then your statement still lacks evidence that it actually pertains to "feminist icons" in general. I don't believe it does. And you are being negative. Maybe that's because the state of affairs as they are now is negative. Which is why Trump beat Hilary. The most memorable event in 2016 regarding f...

To be fair, the vast majority of Milo's opponents haven't resorted to local terrorism; it's misleading to confuse the work of a few anarchists with nonviolent protesters.

We don't have to explain it because they already did. We all know she'd have been accepted if she'd met that criteria. No, we don't. That invokes a couple of fallacies.
