I have an assignment due tomorrow (which my TA has ignored questions I have about it), another due monday, my opinion about women is apparently too strong or even wrong to a mostly male forum (I think the bigger offence is that I'm not even quoted in order to create actual and relevant discourse), the guy calling women a "uterus" is apparently still making valid arguments that aren't being shot down at all (I've also apparently been 'poisoned' by women), a facebook post for you and I turned into a gender/race topic (that fortunately worked itself out at least) and, best of all, I got my credit card statement that I can't pay because my school is slow as hell returning the money.
For lack of better words: Today's just been a hell of a rollercoaster.
Didn't really have the chance to say it in the NGJ, so I'll say it here: Dice, thank you for always coming up with good responses when a gender topic comes up. I rarely have the energy to enter one of those debates, but I always enjoy reading your posts and it's a shame some guys see you as some crazy man-hating feminist just because you're not on their side. You're not like that. Your view on gender and smart and well-rounded and for that I thank you.
Dude. . . really?
Her responses were to things I didn't even say. If you interpreted it the same way, then you have the same defensive misconceptions. I wasn't saying what you seem to think I was if you thought her responses were even remotely relevant. --She called me a misogynist for saying that women are equally flawed and human as men, and an idiot for thinking feminism should be about equality, not hate.
And nobody accused her of being one of the man-hating feminists, that was in relation to what feminism is largely regarded lately because of the more aggressive outspoken ones who spend all their time ranting about patriarchal society and the innate rapist tendencies of penis bearing mammals, giving the feminist movement a bad name after it's achieved so much.
(Also yeah, I'm not an uterus either! Sure, I have one, but aside from those few days a month I don't notice it's there. That organ does not define who or what I am. Sure, various female hormones influence my looks and probably some of my behaviour/feelings as well, but I'm an individual with both masculine and feminine traits. Just like everyone else.)
You do realize that was MY
stance, right? And that my facetious repetition of anatomy was a blatant lampoon of the ludicrousness of reducing a human being to being defined by their organs. (if it makes you feel better, change the word uterus to mammaries; maybe it sounds better to you, but it's just as silly)
Didn't the God Hand already say to desist with this? Please stop baiting me. I suspect everybody understood me just fine and this is some kind of elaborate trolling.
--in fact I tried to clear things up with Dice in PM, and she ignored it and made that public post AFTERWARD, adhering to a representation she knew was false, which gives the impression it's just for attention.
Again--people, please stop baiting me. Just let it go. Science has proven that humans are inherently bisexual prior to social conformity, and gender can be medically altered
. I don't know what more proof you could need to see that X and Y aren't so different, no matter how much you want to think that your organ defines you in some way.
