Re: MGTOW: 26 Ways The Patriarchy Is Harmful To Men

We must be looking at different links then because all I see is more bottles for the women that have more graphics, other than being more colourful there's no extra gender specific information. But why? Why not just have the same selection across the board? It doesn't cost more money to have extra ...

Re: MGTOW: 26 Ways The Patriarchy Is Harmful To Men

It's an pretty odd example of an over arching problem. It's used because it's so odd. How the hell can a water bottle be deemed so girly that it becomes unusable to a man? What kind of world do we live in that we're splitting bottles of water into acceptable gender usage? For what I can see the wom...

Re: MGTOW: The MRAs Silly Dreams

Sorry, I Wikipedia the term you used and assumed I had clicked your link. Not the case. My baby is teething and sleep hasn't been a recent activity. My bad. Congratulations on your baby.

Re: MGTOW: 26 Ways The Patriarchy Is Harmful To Men

It was provided, as far as I can see. The issue is that you are ideologically disposed to disregard gender bias as a general explanation. That's understandable, since that's obviously the stance you carried with you into the discussion. We are walking in circles now... in post number 3 picked speci...

Re: MGTOW: Feminism Vs Transgenders

There's also disagreement on who is more privileged than whom. Terfs = Transpeople are more privileged than ciswomen. Transactivists = Cis women are more privileged than trans, or they're equally marginalized in different ways. (depends on who one asks). Therefore terfs see it as men, aka the patri...

Re: MGTOW: Feminism Vs Transgenders

Considering feminisms history though, I doubt anything that's happened due to a person who wasn't famous ten years ago could be that big a deal. It is is a very old debate that looks like will never have a solution... Women that present themself nude are subjecting themselves to be objectified?, or...

Re: MGTOW: The MRAs Silly Dreams

Is there not a huge difference between not pursuing a romantic relationship and deciding you can't live with half the population? MGTOW seems pointed directly at women while that wiki seems more about apathy. Hi, thanks for your comment. I am not sure what wiki page you are referring to. "no pursui...

How would you approach this? if someone dump an endless list of links [sic] some of them don't even have anything to do with the point they where supposed to support? That's a fair question. The short answer is that I'd first decide whether there's any benefit in replying. Then I'd read the article...

Re: MGTOW: The MRAs Silly Dreams

Most of my understanding of MGTOW comes from the herbivore men in Japan. Hikikomori do not exist outside of any other society besides Japan. In another country, they'd be diagnosed as having a personality/interpersonal skills deficit issue, rather easily dealt with in the first few weeks of seclusi...

Re: MGTOW: Feminism Vs Transgenders

I'm sorry SimpleMan, can you clarify your point a bit? Do you want to discuss how some varieties of feminisms are anti-trans*? Or do you want to argue that trans women are inherently anti-feminism for trying to fulfilling specific gender norms? Hi, With those giving options I would go for the first...

As a woman who swears and gets dirty and likes some stereotypical masculine things, I've been read as a man before and that's even though I don't really look like one (very feminine body type and I'm short. Obviously men can be short, but it's less likely). I've had very feminine friends get read a...

SimpleMan's appeal to "lots of factors," meanwhile, falls into a thought-terminating cliche. Yes, there are lots of factors. Two of them are systematic racism and cycles of poverty, which along with other factors manifest as privilege. I understand the historical argument, but I also think that in ...

The clash between radical feminism and transactivism is down to one question: Is gender inherent to the human mind. Former argues no, latter argues yes. Hi, thanks for your comment.
