Re: June 20, 2019: Threats 8

I wonder what sort of ally you think you are if you can't differentiate between men and the patriarchy as a class, and the individual. I don't think that differentiation should be allowed. I mean, it'd be nice, but that's too easy, isn't it? I can only use myself as a subject, because everything el...

Re: June 20, 2019: Threats 8

*rubs eyes* Man, I've got to watch what mood I'm in before reading this comic. As a guy I get that it's one thing to be supportive of women and recognize the existance of a patriarchy vs. living as a woman with the proverbial / literal boot on your throat. I get that being a guy and self-labeling as...

Re: Whats a woman?

PS to everybody: The comic is clearly refering to a specific group of transactivist allies, who are male, many of them still identifiying as male, using the movement as a veil to be shitty to women Ah! Is it? Thank you! To me the reference / recent arc has been very inside baseball. Unable to pick ...

I should clarify: When it comes to leftists, feminists are the only group routinely badgered to advocate for everyone. I tend not to post more than once a day but would you believe that when I read this yesterday I made a note of how I owed you a response along the lines of, "I've never seen that s...

Re: All Lives Matter

Don't "All Lives Matter" at feminists. We're not here to save everybody. We're here to liberate women. Heya Foxgloves! Just a quiet note of appreciation for how you stayed focused despite an attempt to derail. Seeing trolls sucker people into arguments is a frustration of mine and I had to say 'wel...

Re: My random thoughts on the state of things..

With each year we got to see how these characters lived in a world that was full of sin or opportunities for them to miss the mark. We got to see them wrestle with real problems. Dive deep into issues of racism, sexism, pornography, insecurity, drugs, religion, etc. It was a conversation. After the...

I'm currently doing an re-read of the Wheel of Time series, with other books interspersed, and while a lot of it is cringe-worthy, I'm tentatively hopeful that the Amazon Prime TV adaptation will bring out the best. Hello, wut?! That was not on my radar at all! Interesting. I read through book 5 ( ...

Personally I'm a sucker for Mercedes Lackey. In particular her Valdemar Chronicles... stand outs in that category are "Brightly Burning", the "Vows and Honor" trilogy, and the "Magic's Pawn" trilogy. Oh cool - yeah, I've seen her on shelves for ages and while I suspect I read something once I'm lon...

Well cool - I'll keep my eyes open for those series at my library. Have you ever read Dune? (I'm re-reading the Frank Herbert books) That's the only series which comes to mind when I think of sociological storytelling. Ian McDonald's Luna series is a hugely different setting than GoT but for some re...

Game of Thrones is done, now what?

Creating this topic to avoid a side conversation disrupting another thread. For good or ill, Game of Thrones is done. I read quite a lot and am curious a) did you like GoT and b) with regard to liking it or not, what do you recommend reading or viewing for science fiction and fantasy? If it matters,...

Thanks for the recommendation! I have seen it and it brought me joy just to see an anthology of animation shorts. That the story quality was solidly Twilught Zone level was icing on the cake. Kinda reminded me of the stuff I've seen on YouTube out of Oats Studio. Look, though - I appreciate the resp...

I'm going to have to re-read that article with an eye to what Tatsuya mentioned. I'd come across it some time ago, read about a third and felt my frustrations were more succinctly ( and no less accurately ) addressed by pointing out books are more carefully planned and tv scripts are more "make it u...

I also quite like this. I think that's where things are going and the world will be a better place for it.

Re: All good

And if the assumption of masculinity is that you have to become a father - well I would oppose that, because I don't consider men who don't father children somehow failed or unmasculine. Same with women who don't have kids. But that's not what I was... (*checks my last post*) Well poop. I hadn't me...

Re: All good

(and there are millions of johns all over the world - so not really anecdotal). I might have been unclear - when I wrote 'anecdotal' I was referring to my interactions with other guys. You have a reference to back up your claims and I don't and I felt I should admit this plainly. To me masculinity ...
