    Absolutely true. All we're saying is every woman is closer to the issue than any man will ever be.
  2. What astonishes me is people can find so many...

    What astonishes me is people can find so many ways to take something as obvious as 'men are not the authorities on what women consider offensive to themselves' and try and conflate it to something...

    See, you keep basing your argument on me saying they were more acceptable. When again, nowhere did I say that. Continuing to include it in every reply doesn't actually magically turn it into...
  4. Your opinion isn't considered 'less' because of...

    Your opinion isn't considered 'less' because of your sex, its considered 'less relevant' because you're not part of the demographic the insult is specifically tailored to be offensive to. Equality...

    True but the showrunners also very definitively stated in Season One of Arrow that their universe would never be dealing with superpowers, and they wanted to keep it more grounded and realistic. One...
  6. That wasn't me saying you have no right to speak...

    That wasn't me saying you have no right to speak in the gender issues debate. That's me saying your opinion on whether a female-specific insult is harmful is never going to be heard any differently...

    A man thinking he's qualified to decide whether gender-oriented insults aimed at women are harmless or not is more evidence of a culture of sexism than literally anything I could come up with.

    I'm curious to find out which of the other characters besides Angel are Apocalypse's horsemen. I hope Nightcrawler isn't one of them, because doing the 'starts out manipulated into being bad' angle...

    Like a continuing culture of sexism versus imaginary threats to people's right to free speech? Man, the good old days sound nice then, if that's what you meant.

    Anyone mind spoiling the team lineup at the end of the movie? I'm assuming its a mix of the old lineup, Vision, Scarlet Witch and maybe Falcon or War Machine but are there any surprises?

    For me the casting was top notch across the board, which is why I picked Rosario Dawson. Everyone was compelling but she was the one that made me wish she had more scenes and more to do. It was a...

    I disagree that its valid to project your own experiences with your personal circle of friends as confirmation of how everyone else acts, but since we're still stuck in the 'these people' rut Conn...

    One could also argue that social media has just made it harder to ignore the complaints from people outside your own personal circle of like-minded friends and acquaintances.
  14. Incorrect. None of us have said that you CAN NOT...

    Incorrect. None of us have said that you CAN NOT use the words. What we've said is you CAN NOT expect to use the words without being called out on it, because slut shaming and those words go hand...

    Problem is, you're saying one thing and doing another. If your stance is really to let adults say what they want and expect them to deal with the consequence? These actors said what they want, and...

    Well the next Avengers movie is Infinity War directed by the Russos, and I'm sure if they really wanted to use Pietro for whatever reason, there's plenty of ways the Infinity Stones could be used to...

    Looking at her writing credits on IMDB, it looks like she's only co-written episodes with various other people, and most of those episodes are my least favorites of the season - usually because of...

    It might be for the greater good that Malcolm died, and Thea might ultimately see that, true. But that doesn't change the fact that Thea didn't try and have Malcolm killed for the sake of justice. ...

    Well, your outlook on this topic isn't inherently different from mine due to being a man, since I'm a man as well. And I don't think anyone really thinks Evans or Renner was trying to offend...

    I wasn't defending his reasoning. I was pointing out you erased his reason and substituted a version that supports your argument better.

    People usually only do that when the real reasoning can't...

    You use the example of referring to your kids as crazy, high, etc...and then ask if you should go poll mental asylums to ask anyone if those words are offensive. You do that because you don't take...

    We all get invested in these characters to varying degrees. That's fine. The hypocrisy inherent in many of the same people trying to handwave this away as 'just a fictional character' being the...

    Sure, that's exactly what happened - if you ignore that his entire motivation there was he didn't want Thea one day down the line regretting that she was complicit in her biological father's murder. ...

    Also, I really hope none of the people here saying 'she's just a fictional character so what does it matter' haven't been participating in any of the recent freak outs over Iceman being outed as gay....
