OMFG did you really just say that about feminism. Honestly. Let me guess your wife is one of these old school people who just wants to look after their children and husband. Who is brainwashed again. Women are equal to men they can do as they please. Women having choices has nothing to do with the breakdown in families. Men not pulling their weight is a more likely cause.  I really don't know what to say in flabbergasted.

I didn't even want to touch that one myself.
My mother had her nurses license before I was born, and went on to upgrade that to a Nurse Anesthetist certification when I was 12.
By then end of her over 40 years in medicine, she was pulling in a 6 figure income (probably better than our sexist friend here).
Quite a role model really.

WTF are you talking about Karlos?


He quoted stefcep2 above his comment... I don't think it was directed at you.

I'm not going to say anything about the argument though - any minute now someone's going to compare someone else to Hitler and then the argument will be over anyway. :) Some of the things said in this thread are just so ridiculous and insulting to great women like Emmeline Pankhurst and so many others, I'm not even going to honour them with a reply.

By the way, I've upgraded the firmware in my tin foil hats, and they now protect from EVIL OVERLORD DAN too. Yours for only $99.99 + taxes, import duty and another spurious surcharge I haven't thought of a reason for yet.

Rubbish,

Read any of his posts related to social issues ..everything is about how islam is the way forward, the only forward and about how Westerners and by inference Christianity is evil., all subtly done of course, but there nevertheless.

The guy even renames England as Englistan in his avatar, FFS!  WTF is that?

I can see through his %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@! and his response is typical of people like him: all nice and tolerant of others views, as long as those views match *theirs*..

Seems like people are just posting random personal attacks, anti-feminist rants, and gibberish on this thread now. But since it's staying stuck at the top of the homepage I'll just stick this here. To all you Brits! :bitch:

Being of Irish descent, I'm not sure whether to be amused or offended.
After all, thanks to British land holders, Ireland was a mass exporter of food during the Potato famine, so anti-British sentiment is quite well founded.

Then again, coming from a country that had to kick the British military's ass (and still came to call the country an ally), I find that whole drama is SO over for me.

And...wtf were we talking about again?

I shall give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you don't realise just how disgusting posting a link to that video is.
To say it's tasteless is understating things... Ireland was very much an issue when I was growing up and I had see all the constant news reports of innocent people being maimed and killed as they did things like shopping, and dropping kids off at school.

To put it into perspective, imagine somebody had posted a video to you asking for Muslims to rise up and shoot innocent Americans. How would you feel? (Nicholas, I'm not meaning anything by this except how a lot of people are still angry about terrorism. I realise Islam is just as peaceful a religion as any other (and just as open to fundamentalism any other)).

Remember the point of terrorism is to terrorise you. If allow yourself to be scared they win. The best way to handle terrorism is to trivalise it by laughing.

I have German friends who play Nazi Zombies on Call Of Duty and they think it's the coolest thing ever! When i asked if they found it offensive they laughed at me. Then pointed out they can see the funny side of it but maybe their grandparents would not see the funny side of it.
Even my cat doesn\'t like me.

I don't fear it, I just revile it. It's hard to laugh as people randomly blow up innocents and schoolkids.
But either way, posting links to pro-terrorism videos is in very poor taste.

A perfect fit for this thread then. As I think Mike was suggesting. I resisted clicking on the video. My choice you see.

I'm glad someone gets it. :) We'd already gone past "aliens", "tin foil hats", and "comparing things to Hitler", so why not add a little pro-terrorism in, as well? :roflmao:
 
Think this thread can be moved to "coffee house" instead of "Alternative operating systems" now, so that it will stop showing up at the top every #$(%% time I visit this site? :mad:

A topic for "Alternative operating systems" it is not, I say.
In fact, in not even sure if this is good coffeehouse fodder.

Sex, religion, politics, the world at large, anything we haven't dismissively commented on yet?

Why, yes I did!   :-)

Some people would call what I did "traditional family values".  But anti-feminism is so much more incendiary.  lol

Quote

Yes.  But don't assume that she's uneducated.  She has a university degree and worked in the medical field for a number of years until the cost of daycare became oppressive, at which point she did what she would rather do anyway:  stay home with the kids.  Believe it or not, she was happy with her decision, the kids were better off, and it didn't make her a idiot.

How many women out there would prefer to stay home with the kids if they could afford it?  I'd argue quite a large percentage.  Oh, and this whole women working thing is so western-world.  There's women covering huge parts of the planet who would find it unthinkable to let someone else raise their children while they toiled away somewhere else for something so meaningless as money.

Quote

Who is brainwashed again.


You are.  :-)  But you're not alone.  I'd say that most people have bought the propaganda with little or no effort on the part of those pushing it.

Quote

Women are equal to men they can do as they please.


Men and women are not the same, regardless of what your TV says.  Men and women are physically and mentally different.  One isn't better or worse than the other, they're just different.  There's a reason why you don't put women on the front line in the military.  A civilization thinking rationally wouldn't dream of doing that, which is why they're getting ready to do it in the US.

I do agree that they can do as they please though.  Of course, once the women are brainwashed into giving up millennia of gender roles common to the entire human race, then they'll do what someone else pleases while believing they're free, right?

Quote

Women having choices has nothing to do with the breakdown in families.


Again, if you manipulate the women (and men) into distorting gender roles, then it does break down the family.  Brainwash them enough and they'll happily destroy their own family and argue with you when you point out what's happening.

Quote

Men not pulling their weight is a more likely cause.  


This is an entirely different problem that's also breaking down the family.  If men get all the sex they want, and aren't taught to treat women with respect, and instead are encouraged to never leave adolescence, then you end up with the problems we have today.

Quote

I really don't know what to say in flabbergasted.


Really?  Is that all it took? I'm just getting started!  How about this one...  I believe (and have encouraged my children to do so) that people should get married at around the age of 18.  This way, it becomes possible, even easy to wait for sex until marriage.  Of course, I also tell them that divorce isn't an option.  They have to make it work.

People think I'm insane when I tell them this.  After all, everyone knows that you should wait until you go to college and get an established career and a house and a mortgage and a mountain of debt and two cars... before you get married.  Maybe 30 is a good age!  After all, kids don't know anything and what if they get divorced?!  An conveniently, 30 is too late to wait for sex, so we can just sleep around with whoever we want.  Right?  I mean, we're all free and liberated, open-minded people, right?

How's that thinking working out for the western world?  The divorce rate is higher than ever.  Infidelity, illegitimacy, sexually transmitted diseases are all on the rise.  People on their second, third, or fourth spouse is commonplace.  At least if the 18 year olds get divorced later, they've only been with with (hopefully) one person the whole time, and the children all come from one father.

If you do things God's way, you don't have any of these problems.  Of course, the Christian community has all these problem also.  But that comes from not doing things God's way.
