your latest thaang

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Can't help it, it is something I do standard on all forums I frequent (all 3, that is).

I learned to undersign all my posts while I was in Uni (I wuz taught dat!), and that's something that stuck up until now.

A bit of good manners so to speak, maybe ;)

Not that I'm one to put the cat amongst the pigeons, but isn't feminism a bit 'overkill' these days? It's not as though you have to rail against men prejudicing against you for your gender...is it?

Seems to me we're all more than busy just trying to get on with it.
What can I say - I disagree wholeheartedly, but I'm conscious that this thread is really not the place to enter into a discussion on the topic of the post-feminist complacency/backlash that so many people (women included) appear to have bought into.

I would just say one thing though - for the overwhelming majority of feminists, feminism has absolutely f**k all to do with "railing against men" as you put it. It never did. But I really don't want to have a big debate - I'm not even going to be at home in the next few days, and I have a feeling I would be having to contribute a lot...

And also, did you know that there is a special variant of Godwin's Law, whereby "As an online discussion concerning feminism grows longer, the probability of the use of the word "Feminazis" approaches 1." :P

Personally, I think any woman who says "ooh, but I'm not a feminist" is effectively saying "ooh, but I'm a doormat". If you think gender equality has been achieved you haven't been paying attention.

Also, Kerry is a big fan of Bidisha too.

@ boudicca ... as you say, it's a discussion too long for this thread ...

Maybe for some other day - I couldn't possibly have a reasoned discussion now as I'm feeling terribly pre-menstrual :lol:

that's a bit of a fleeting generalisation imho.

particularly when you consider that some women say that they are not feminists simply because they want to dissociate themselves from the hysterical attention seekers who have more or less monopolised the title 'feminist', replaced gender equality ideals with bitter misandry, corrupted the very essence of the feminist philosophy which your quote so elegantly captures, and alienated a sizeable chunk of the population whose rights they claim to advocate.

that does not make them any less of a human being.


not convinced?

in that case i'm one happy, proud doormat ;D


and no, this is probably not the place for a thorough discussion of feminism. i just felt the need to clarify where i stand because it was i who started it, albeit inadvertently. it's all Charlie Brooker's fault! :twisted: :lol:

I did light the fuse, I did apply it to the blue touch paper, I did not retire to a safe distance... :oops:

I'm certainly happy to be enlightened though, assuming boudicca can do that without ripping my head off.

NB:
That's not because she's a feminist woman, she just really likes hurting me. :wink:

I'm rediscovering Steven Spielbergs 'Taken' at moment, not half as bad as I thought it would be.
And found the box set of Firefly, so coming over all all scifi/cowboy/space piratey.

Yeah the funny thing is, I've never met, or even heard of, anyone who is genuinely like that.
