If it's any consolation, as a white person (which makes me privileged) I have to constantly monitor my internalised racism and choose my words and actions very carefully.

I think this is a useful link, I found it interesting.

what to do if someone calls you sexist

Why we have thin skins and chips on our shoulders:

Microagressions are brief everyday exchanges that send denigrating messages to people...because they belong to a minority group...Microaggressions are often unconsciously delivered in the form of subtle snubs or dismissive looks, gestures and tones...

I hate fake boobs. I don't understand if this is really a thing men supposedly like as nearly everyone I talk to doesn't like them either. Women should stop doing this and most other cosmetic surgery immediately!

Right, so the guys you talk to don't like boob jobs so women should be stop having cosmetic surgery in order to stop offending your male sense of taste? I hope you realize how incredibly sexist that is.


What!?!? I say that women shouldn't go through with cosmetic surgery because I think they should be happy with the bodies they have and you tell me it is sexist? And further you assert that their doing this offends my male sense of taste? It couldn't possibly be about me wanting people to feel good about themselves naturally?

Its been noted that cosmetic surgery can have a very positive effect on a person's sense of self worth.


Their self worth shouldn't come from their breast size. But obviously since you've felt the need to broadly defend cosmetic surgery against a boob job comment, I do understand that there are times where cosmetic surgery can help during certain situations such as after a terrible car accident. I would hope that in context with a boob job comment, you would understand that I am only referring to unnecessary cosmetic surgery like buttocks injections and lip injections just for the sake of altering one's appearance to best fit some notion of beauty.


You are still telling women what they should and shouldn't do, that is sexist.

Hahahahahaha........

You can keep her, her bad attitude, bad behavior, bad morals and those huge chips on her shoulders.

Oh wait, that describes some around here too. :-O

Cheers.

So tell me, who doesn't like Germaine Greer besides you, Wiggo and Chris S, all males I believe?

I can imagine that the transgender community is not her biggest fan, unless she has changed her opinion on transgenders in the meantime.


She may have done or be doing, I don't know. I do know now, that the majority of feminist organising is trans-inclusionary. I have been following the debates for some time and as you probably know they are still ongoing.

The 60's in Sydney were certainly very entertaining with the cat fights on the streets.

These days she only pays us very short occasional visits because a lot of women here still feel the same way about her now as they did back then and she always seems to get caught out lying on those visits by those she claims to be helping.


Ess Germaine Greer is not liked more here because as Wiggo says she got caught out lieing . She's a con artist . Shore people don't like her for the woman lib skit but even more dislike her because of things she's been caught out doing over here .


Really? Australia:Proud of Germaine Greer, a brave and passionate advocate for liberty, especially women's

I am a second wave feminist. I read The Female Eunuch in 1970 and I am grateful that the book was written as were many of my female friends, because there wasn't much feminist literature around at that time.

So tell me, who doesn't like Germaine Greer besides you, Wiggo and Chris S, all males I believe?

From the Guardian newspaper:

"Study shows that modern hunter-gatherer tribes operate on egalitarian basis, suggesting inequality was an aberration that came with the advent of agriculture"

Sex equality can explain the unique social structure of hunter-gatherer bands

Really, you honestly think that? Remember the UK Summer riots of 2011? The only time that uniforms work is in a police state or a military based government. At present we apparently have crowds demonstrating outside Downing Street In London. So you are expecting 2/3 of them to just go home because a copper tells them to? As for lab coats, are we talking the medical profession here? If we are it is usually sensible to follow your doctor's advice.

I suggest you look up the Milgram experiment.


There is now some debate about the validity of Milgram's experiment.

Did Stanley Milgram's Famous Obedience Experiments Prove Anything?

Clyde, I'm curious. I've just had a look at your profile and your writing is very clear and comprehensible. I don't understand why you have such a different style when talking to any of us in this forum.

Do you know why?

Not only is Russell Brand in favour of voting for Labour but so is Stephen Hawking.

Russell Brand urges support for Labour

Bit hypocritical of him isn't it? After it's not that long past where he urged people not to vote!

So which is it?

Especially since we're now a fortnight past the registration deadline.

Not sure Hev realised that :-)

The problems with people like Brand is that they don't realise they are much worse than any corrupt politician. With todays youth having their heads stuck in social media & idolising celebrities, many will listen to them rather than politicians.

As for communications from the "other" parties, not 5 minutes ago, received 2 flimsy leaflets - UKIP & Labour - still nothing from the blues...

...well as the "Blues" won the premier league on Sunday, let's hope that all the blues win this month :-)

I am well aware of the registration deadline as I am registered to vote as well.
As for your sneering at young people in general:
so yes. some of them will be listening to Russell Brand

I personally believe that we will do the best that we can for our country. What else can I say?

food bank Britain

If you are looking for a "reason" to vote Lib Dem, I have given you the best info that I can.

Here? http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=77001&postid=1668334
This is one of the reason I joind the Hunt Sabs.
West Country

From the article:
Labour has promised to defend the ban, the Conservatives say they will offer parliament a free vote on repealing it, while the Liberal Democrats say hunting is not a priority, but would allow their MPs a free vote if the issue arises.


and here? http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=76606&postid=1643699: From the article:

The 2010 Conservative manifesto said the Hunting Act was "unworkable" and promised a free vote by MPs on its repeal.

The party says it remains committed to this if it wins a parliamentary majority in May.

Curiouser and curiouser. So that you can pat yourself on the back again,
My honest view is to either vote Conservative or Lib Dem,

you're actively endorsing the possibility of a return to fox hunting. Wow.

I have spoken to a lot of Uni students,

Did you speak to them in the same disrespectful way you speak to them on these boards? For a project that has an appeal to all ages and is attracting a new and younger set of users as a result of the world visualisation map on facebook, you're hardly a welcoming ambassador. Your dismissal of whole nations, even continents, whilst waving your colonial empire flag is not befitting to an international science project either, surely?

I live in a Uni town, that were initially quite hostile towards the Lib Dems because of this. But when it was explained to them why it happened they have all said OK, we can understand a lot more now, we never knew that before, we never got told. And in fact it was only publicised for the first time last autumn.

Four years to craft an excuse for betraying a generation? Wow - must have been hard.

Up to you guys as to what you vote, but I would urge not to vote Labour, I'd rather anything than them!!

So you'd endorse the TUSC then? They pledge to scrap zero hour contracts and curb exhorbitant rents.

Cameron has 5 years of experience under his belt. He IS a Prime Minister, He LOOKS a prime Minister, and ACTS like a Prime Minister.

...like a pig who has spent a lot of time at the trough throughout.

I want to see him back in No.10, but under control, and only the Lib Dems can do that. It is vitally important that we get as many Lib Dem seats as possible on the 7th, only then can we keep this country on the straight and narrow for the next 5 years.

Straight and narrow? Britain's richest Tory MP, property tycoon Richard Benyon, receives at least £625,000 a year in housing benefit from having struggling tenants and more than £2million in EU subsidies for his farms.

Tory peer Lord Cavendish, received £106,938 in housing benefit last year from his tenants going through hard times.
Tory donor Sir Richard Sutton received £67,521 in from West Berkshire Council. Even after they die, they keep raking it in. The estate of one of Britain’s richest men, the billionaire Earl of Cadogan, a Tory donor, received £116,400 in benefit from Kensington and Chelsea Council last year.

UKIP’s housing spokesman Andrew Charalambous received £745,351 in housing benefit from his tenants. That's just a few examples. The legalised corruption in British politics runs deep throughout all parties.

When the Conservatives introduced housing benefit under Margaret Thatcher, it was never about helping struggling tenants. It was always about allowing their donors and MP's to rake in ever more money from higher rents. The last five years have been spent demonising those at the bottom. And that's just one of your "straight and narrow" ambitions, and is precisely why people like Russell Brand have garnered attention. It's wrong. The right to vote was hard won, but it's mainstream parties that have eroded the desire to vote and you keep on endorsing two out of three of those. Leaving almost everyone else in this thread to endorse UKIP, which is an utterly repellent party to many.

As to this: http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=76606&postid=1671497

I suggest you differentiate, because 2 out of three are sexist and actionable

Preach it sister!

@Chris,

You asked what people think about the university student that posts here? I assume you are talking about Мишель?
Well we think that he is a smart young man who clearly likes to think about the whys and hows of the world. I may not agree with him on everything, but I see someone who is trying to enlighten themselves and he is certainly a rational and welcome addition to these message boards. Is that what you wanted to know?


I support this post.

I also was about to complain about the use of the T-word used by Chris S, thank you tami for bringing this up.

Humans are animals and both can and do abuse

Yes Glenn. Thats very true.
Humans and animals now have three genders. Female, male and other.
That's making this thread very odd.
Are victimized females suffering more than then two other victimized genders?


Why don't you just stop. The title of the thread is: Against ALL women - Infanticide, Slavery, Rape, Trafficking...(#2)

Again, it is about all women, if you wish to open another thread to discuss the three genders please feel free.

You and the other unreconstructed males in this thread are just proving the points we are trying to make.

The problem with feminism today is that it has gone too far. When you see successful women on TV getting attacked by feminists when they state that feminists do not speak for them, makes one wonder...

...Are the current feminists against successful women because...

A: They made it in a man's world
B: They're stunningly beautiful & used that beauty to achieve their success
C: A+B

...whereas they are fat & frumpy, unattractive, been abused, lack self confidence & rather than change their outlook, attack others?

It seems in today's world, men are seen as a target by these "feminists" yet do not attack those women whose motto is: -

"If you've got it, flaunt it" & do financially well from that.

It would be nice if "women" all sang from the same hymn book, until that happens, we'll continue to see these "battles"


I used to have some respect for you Sirius.
