Re: what's the last movie you saw?

Snowpiercer. Class warfare on a train. Postapocalyptic. Good effects and effective design. Great acting. Feels a bit odd in a magical realist way, but in no way actually involves magical realism. Spoiler to explain: Just the implausibility of the whole setup, including the very notion of a train su...

Re: Western Women Realize Their Men Suck [article]

Aum, you make a lot of great points. Reluctantly, I must agree with a lot of what you just said. Why would I do so, reluctantly? Because I don't think we should legitimize anything about the "article" posted by the OP. That is hate speech. Show me, anywhere in the article -- where is the capacity fo...

Re: Any openly-identifying lesbians on here?

I'd imagine there would also be a certain reluctance to talk about feminism there with you as a new untested member due to the tangle of stereotypes that opens up. They must have difficulty with trolls there as well. I'm curious, why would you assume that more lesbians would be feminist then straig...

Any openly-identifying lesbians on here?

The reason I ask is because of the research I'm doing for my screenplay. In my next movie, our hero is a closeted lesbian who struggles with coming out of the closet because of her very traditional Catholic family. Over the course of the movie, she becomes feminist, with the guidance of her love-int...

Re: Feeling really guilty. Need to confess

On the issue of the apology, I've changed my mind, for whatever that's worth. Dark One and Taurwen have made some very good arguments against it and their logic makes sense to me. And there's very little I dislike less than the idea that men have to look, it's instinctual. Because I'm not straight, ...

I mean, at least you're aware of the fact that you shouldn't have done it. I think the severity of the crime depends on how long you looked. The initia...

I appreciate your attempt at an apology but at the same time it seems like you don't really know what you're apologizing for. I didn't attempt to apologize, I apologized. And of course I know what I apologized for. I made the reason for my apology clear in my apology. At least the one thing you and...

I'm not an activist, I'm simply a man who has had to deal with his own wounded masculinity in a world that is lacking in proper structures to address it. I've never joined an MRA group in my life. I have, however, joined men's healing circles that discuss and address these things. They are vulnerab...

We should try to have these conversations without referring to things like "manhood". Because not only is it ambiguous at best, most things that can be counted under the term are misogynist ideals (i.e. protecting your lady, being the bread winner, sexual prowess, etc.) or things that can't be cont...

I have no relationship to the trolls in this thread, the topic itself is important to me. The main issue with feminism in relationship to its usefulness to men is that it's run by women. Yeah there are male allies, but they are not part of the core. Sacred spaces for men to develop themselves, expe...
