    Confession time: when you accidentally become the stereotype you hate

    'Sup Escapists. For various reasons I've been away from the forums for a few weeks (seriously guys, I look away for five minutes and you go and create a 300+ page monster thread of doom and despair... geez). To celebrate my glorious return I figured I'd make a thread, so here's what's been...

    The possibility and desirability of a truly non-sexist sociaty

    You're misinterpreting what I'm saying. I've never suggested there's a "correct" ratio for anything, just that every individual should be free to enjoy their own preferences without judgement or the enforcement of the idea certain things are inherently "masculine" or "feminine", that certain...

    The possibility and desirability of a truly non-sexist sociaty

    This actually sums up my ideal situation too. Biological sex isn't going away any time soon, but gender? Is there really any reason to hang on to that any more? Dictating what people should like/do/wear, how they should act, what they should look like based purely on their genitals? Personally...

    The possibility and desirability of a truly non-sexist sociaty

    Because the specific example of lifeboat protocol came about in a time when the biological factors described by Zhukov were already obsolete. As Zhukov said, the biological factors become irrelevant once we live in societies where the loss of a few individual women (or men) is no longer going to...

    The possibility and desirability of a truly non-sexist sociaty

    Sure, and my point is that asymmetry in issues like this isn't sexist. It's not sexist that women physically bear children and men don't, it's just biology. Maybe there will come a time when fundamental differences like this can be overcome, and then yes, maybe it'll become a sexism issue at...

    The possibility and desirability of a truly non-sexist sociaty

    Yeah, what JoJo said. The VAST majority of feminists these days would argue against prioritising women in a lifeboat situation, as it's something that's born out of patriarchal ideas of women being inherently fragile and in need of extra protection (and of course of men having to be the big...

    Picture thread? Picture thread

    Ooo, I almost missed this (thanks for the tip-off, Drummodino). I may have already posted this in the past, but: I love these threads, always fun to see how utterly wrong you were about what people looked like. Mind you, as far as I'm concerned you're all a bunch of walking avatars, and...

    Dear Users Complaining About Moderators

    Huh, that does sound odd. As Barbas said earlier, would you mind linking to the post in question? If your summary is accurate, that's an incredibly obvious breach of the rules, and I fail to see why it wouldn't be moderated. The post Barbas linked to is a recent example of someone getting hit...

    Poll: Most Evil Person/Action You've Personally Witnessed?

    One time when back in school, my Latin teacher ate a Mars bar right in front of the class while he gave us a test. Afterwards, he came round to those of us who got full marks and gave us a carefully cut piece of the wrapper. Our "reward" was to "enjoy the smell". Evil bastard... *shudders*...

    Dear Users Complaining About Moderators

    Do you report the posts calling gays paedophiles when you see them? If so, then yeah, it's completely wrong that they don't get moderated (I do find that hard to believe though). If not, the mods probably never see the posts in the first place. They depend on us users flagging stuff, as there's...

    The FIFA World Cup 2014 Thread

    Urgh, extra time :/ I honestly never realised how many fucks I give about Germany until this match... Also, does anyone else think the Argentine manager looks like a Thunderbirds puppet? :P

    Dear Users Complaining About Moderators

    ...And this very thread demonstrates how people should read the rules before complaining. I mean come on, some guy directly calls other users (in this case mods) "asses", "twits" and "bitches" and then claims to be baffled about why he's getting warnings? Seriously?! *headdesk* Once again...

    Dear Users Complaining About Moderators

    Well, I just saw this and now I'm blushing :P Thank you, kind sir! And no, I don't disagree at all, I always enjoy our conversations. I have to say I'm honoured to be listed among such illustrious users. Cheers, shootthebandit, this made my evening XD

    Dear Users Complaining About Moderators

    I'm not sure I can give general advice, as what I wrote was pretty specific to the situation but basically I stated my case and provided a fucktonne of links to posts/threads that supported my argument. In my case, that meant showing that things that had been mistaken for insults were actually...
