unless its just one very busy woman that's done everything!
What a sexist subject...
I agree. I'm fed up of all these trans-men coming over to our gender, taking all our manly jobs and using our urinals. Go back to your own gender!
That's a really lame defence. If it had been your opinion that there aren't enough "real" women around these days, by which you mean women who don't work and spend most of their day making themselves look pretty for their husbands, it wouldn't matter a damn that it was just an opinion. Your opinion on what makes a "real" man is idiotic and offensive, and it has been rightly exposed as such. If you don't like that then stop creating threads about your opinions.
I feel a great urge to moon this thread...it's an urge I haven't felt in quite some time.
It always is.
It is also, for storytelling purposes, obviously a more general expression of intimacy.
Yeah...and you completely missed the point. Have you thought about any of the questions I asked you?
I can pretty much guarantee that no one cares at all whether or not they fall into your definition of what it means to be a man, because we all agree that your definition of what it means to be a man is extremely naive and absolutely untrue. Why post the question at all if you're not interested in reconsidering your "opinion"?
Women are idiots and men are lunatics, no?
^You've got that backwards, I think.
I didn't fit any of the negative (from your POV) traits you listed and didn't take it personally in the slightest. I just found your opinion to be outdated, unfounded, and insulting to others on its own. You don't have to be gay or black or a woman to disapprove of them being mistreated or stereotyped, and the same applies here.
And don't start playing the martyr. You said something people didn't like, and they called you on it. That's how discussion forums work. It's not because people are automatically coming into this dismissing your opinion out of hand without consideration first.
East, West, never the Twain shall meet...
Right. Women make up a little more than half of our population and this Congress includes a record high number of female members, 101 out of the 535 people current serving (link). In business, currently a record high 3% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women (link). We've along way to go before we can pretend this isn't still a problem.
I've said in a post that I myself don't think I fit the category.
^Are you planning to respond to the questions I asked you, Ken?
I don't wish to play martyr I most certainly brought this onto myself. I was simply saying that I didn't mean this as it had to be this way, I was just saying I didn't initially think it would insult anyone, I apologize if It has.
I was simply saying that is was a mere question and that I didn't wish to insult anyone. I am, like I said before one of the reasons I wrote that long post which instead of concentrating on the silly things concentrated on honesty, integrity, non violence. I will admit that I am seeing the error of my thoughts, especially now that I am being asked to think about them abstractly. Sorry I didn't see this question, I would answered sooner.
^It's good to hear that you are thinking more carefully about it. I was actually asking if you intended to respond to the questions I posed in my longer post, though.
Can you link me to it, I can't seem to find it.
I am beginning too and to all those who I did offend I apologize. I certainly fall into the same category in this case as the people I say I fear the future because of.
