In times of extremes, extremists win. Their ideology becomes a religion, anyone who doesn't puppet their views is seen as an apostate, a heretic or a traitor, and moderates in the middle are annihilated. Fiction writers are particularly suspect because they write about human beings, and people are morally ambiguous. The aim of ideology is to eliminate ambiguity.

Yes, that video is well worth paying attention to by both genders and then following up on.

And here’s a video that, in the beginning, also shows how men should behave . . . as well as discusses a few things that might apply to and help out the feminist movement in the long run.



Sorry, just reviewing the whole thing.

Part of it also falls in with the post-modernist challenges that are evident in rustled post, and that Margaret Atwood is dealing with, both above.

He owns the barber shop and only cuts men's hair and doesn't cut women's hair! What's the big deal it's his choice it's his store and his rules! the women that don't like it maybe go find else where for a cut! This barber shouldn't have to defend or explain himself to nobody! this story is complete BS !!!

I agree with you. I'm not sure how many people actually had a problem with this. The news sort of blew over and nobody in this thread really defended the idea that they were in the wrong. I can say that now because it's been quite a while and this thread has been, well, busy.

So it's womens day. McDonalds even has the 'M' upside down to make it a 'W'. When is mens day?
My GF and I were talking about this and were laughing at the need some feel to have a special, politically correct, childish gold star on the fridge, everyone gets a trophy, day. Didn't want to start a new thread, I stuck it here. Not bashing anyone here but even my GF (who is a girl-duh) thinks this is pathetic, and further this b.s. goes, the more pathetic her, and her fellow women look.
Some may view my above politically incorrect opinions as 'harsh' and may even be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing.

The University of Massachusetts-Amherst is offering a course on "Feminist Health Politics" this semester that explores whether health and disease are "subjective states" determined by societal biases.
