    I'll not sidetrack the Evo/Cre thread again but doesn't your link kind of replicate the point I was making?

    Karzkin I mean to say that creationists often try to wiggle creationism into science classes. You're right, creationism is being locked out of classrooms, but that doesn't mean it's not trying.

    Seriously, where did all these MRAs come from?

    Lebensborn Well, I for one, am not an MRA at all. But the truth is that when speaking to feminists or about feminism, I am expected to feel guilty about being a man. Perhaps that's just myself project my own insecurities onto feminist ideals. But a lot of men are personally insulted by being told that "men are misogynistic".

    If we cannot talk about these issues without scapegoating one side of the spectrum, people's feelings are going to get hurt.

    We've been supporters of each other for a long time, it's a shame to see that our perceptions and respect for each other is crumbling because of one issue by which we are divided, and not divided in theory, but in practice.

    /Sincerely, and old friend.

    Karzkin But here's the thing: by and large, men ARE misogynistic. Even the most feminist, educated, informed, caring men are sometimes misogynistic. I am sometimes misogynistic. It's a product of being brought up in a patriarchal society, no one ever avoids it. Can you really tell me you can scour every tiny thing you do every day, and claim that you do nothing to oppress women? Even the way men walk down the street or sit on the bus is often misogynistic; we swing our arms and spread our legs because society tells us it's our right to take up as much space as we like. Women, on the other hand, and subtly told all the time that they have to take up as little space as possible. Next time you catch a bus look around and see just how many men unconsciously invade women's space, and how many women just let it happen. Men are misogynistic, no way around it. Feminism shouldn't make you feel guilty simply for being a man, but it definitely should make you feel guilty for exercising your male privilege on a daily basis, and you should feel guilty every time you don't take an opportunity to help take down the patriarchal system that we live in. Like Desmond Tutu said, if you're neutral, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.

  • MRAs coming out of the woodwork in SD&D smh...

    Pigeon I've kind of stopped even looking at the debates. Like, I go to the forum, look at the debate titles, and then I'm just like "nooops, I really do not want to see what some people have said in there."

    Cheers mate. Strong showing on your part as well. Always good to feel like I know what I'm saying.

    yes pls

  • Uhhhhh that might just scare him off? But I'll let him choose the film tonight :D (Mostly because I have a feeling he'll choose Thor, but I'm cool with the other options too).

  • Not cute, just frustrating! Why doesn't the right boy buy me flowers? Ah man, sometimes I miss uni. Not all the deadlines and things, but the endless writing opportunities. I will definitely be on a little more as it gets closer to Christmas and I have a week off :D

    You look noble and honourable. Even in drag.

    Karzkin I think you mean "especially in drag."
    Nov 17, 2013

    carbonCore On the contrary, I meant what I said -- when you dress in drag, it is difficult to see the nobility and honour behind all the animal magnetism.

  • Too long! I'm doing well in most aspects, though I continue to struggle blindly through the world of dating and have a very guilty dozen roses in my kitchen right now. From the wrong boy. Work is going well and writing is slow but bearable. How are you faring? <3
