    how women judge you (opposite sex)

    here in this thread men who regularly speak for women and regularly get told they wrong by women will once again repeat this process and then act petulant when they get mocked for it stay tuned for more comedy

    how women judge you (opposite sex)

    actually women judge men by their serial number and use complex quantum algorithms to determine compatibility your utter confusion and frustration is not a bug, but a feature =)

    Rape is usually about sex drive

    We do see that.

    Racism is innate

    Not really talking about sociological theory though. Talking plainly about the reported reasons for rape by perpetrators and how we assess what particular behaviours they engage in mean. From a reductionist point of view you could say that a lack of ability to fulfil a biological sex drive...

    Racism is innate

    To be clear: no one is denying that there is a biological basis for emotions and motives. This is a phantom that you are working yourself up to argue against. What's being contested is the idea that it can be chalked up to 'horny'. All studies on behaviour of perpetrators of rape (that I've...

    Racism is innate

    That's because it really is blaming the victim. There's quite a few levels of violence between inappropriate remarks or an isolated event of inappropriate contact without physical harm and actual rape. In certain contexts I might not condone but also not necessarily condemn the former as being...

    She's asking you questions to determine the boundaries of what kind of discrimination you consider correct against religious people. There's nothing disrespectful in it. What you've said is that if someone's religious, you don't just think it's okay to discriminate against them but that they...

    INTP Memes

    On one hand I think it's important to differentiate between institutionalized belief and individual belief. But it's proving harder and harder to even turn a blind-eye, let alone be forgiving of even individual beliefs when the current PM of our country and a number of our senior ministers are...

    dark energy probably doesn't exist and universe might not be expanding at accelerating rate

    i've been skeptical of the concept of dark energy for quite a while i've read through the paper but i'm still thinking about it. i think it's not really an embarrassment so much. it's still an important step in the discovery process to see that the universe is expanding from our frame of...

    i think you're really misunderstanding the fundamental reason that most people's arguing about moderation occurs in the first place on a forum, or what spurs people to stir up trouble over it. the judgements that have been brought up don't really bother me. and in this case i think you're also...

    also rebis you complain that i'm not taking your advice on board. but maybe you should read Minuend's post? she's been here for a decade, has been active throughout most of its existence and her opinions run in stark contrast to yours. it's quite clear that moderation can't happen both the...

    sure, you can strawman me if you like. i've just seen many examples of people up in arms over moderation even when transparency exists and things are clear. there's always going to be disagreement over where exactly lines should be drawn. warnings will be given if behaviour is deemed...

    Forum Modding Feedback

    yeah, it's been done before it doesn't help because people's problems usually just amount to whether or not they agree with the ban or the warning anyway. instead of the argument being over an unjust ban, it's over whether the warnings matter. or whether warnings were consistent enough etc...

    here's the thing - if there's contentious behaviour on the forum and you ban someone: people will get upset and potentially leave - if there's contentious behaviour on the forum and you ban no one: people will get upset and potentially leave it's all well and good to pretend that being really...

    the ban thread used to be around before i was a mod, and i see it around on other forums. it really makes no real difference as to whether or not people accept the bans that occur, because there's always going to be two sides to an argument, and it has no impact on whether or not someone does...
