  1. See, the male expectation that any request to act...

    See, the male expectation that any request to act like a decent person be presented with extreme gentleness and deference, bowing and scraping, is an example male of privilege. Attempts to honey up...
  2. I'm sorry, but my diagnosis is butthurt. It's a...

    I'm sorry, but my diagnosis is butthurt. It's a perfectly apt word. Men just don't like it because it criticizes something they do and challenges the same sexist assumptions that underly mansplaining.
  3. Never say never. Maybe, like, our civilization...

    Never say never. Maybe, like, our civilization will end and humanity will be wiped out. And ants will evolve to the technological point we are now. As a case of parallel evolution they will start...
  4. I won't. You're right. I don't want to watch a TV...

    I won't. You're right. I don't want to watch a TV series if I miss and episode, and I don't want to read a comic event if I miss part of it. Going and looking it up on Wikipedia doesn't cut it for me.

    Call someone condescending on CBR, you get time in the hotbox.

    I still think motive matters. If a man is being condescending to a woman about a topic because, for example, "women don't understand...
  6. This is true, but mansplaining specifically means...

    This is true, but mansplaining specifically means a mansplainer considers their own perspective superior to a given female's perspective because the mansplainer is male. It's a word that means a...
  7. Generalized arrogance of course is a thing. But...

    Generalized arrogance of course is a thing. But mansplaining is a word that has a specific meaning. It's sexist in that it privileges or gives more weight to the male perspective. The person...

    Let's talk about Carl Barks.

    Carl Barks worked for licensors that published Disney comics, creating comics about Donald Duck and other characters, including his own creation Uncle Scrooge. He did...

    I think this answers the question.

    I don't think mansplainers necessarily have Aspergers.
  10. There is no other group, unless you count...

    There is no other group, unless you count everyone else as another group.

    The movement we're talking about here's initial goal was to drive someone to suicide. I think it's easy to figure out who...
  11. Ask the Democrats how that works out.

    Ask the Democrats how that works out.
  12. The new Gamergate: Angry white men are trying to shut down diverse comics (Salon Article)

    http://www.salon.com/2015/03/24/the_new_gamergate_angry_white_men_are_trying_to_shut_down_diverse_comics/

    Good article about an attack on comics we have to recognize and one of the right wing...
  13. I dunno, as a subscriber I can tell you there are...

    I dunno, as a subscriber I can tell you there are definite gaps in what Marvel puts on Marvel Unlimited. You'll still probably miss stuff that way.
  14. I agree. Look, they always say you only need to...

    I agree. Look, they always say you only need to buy the main mini or the main book, but in my experience that's almost never true if you want the whole story.

    There's always important information...
  15. I agree. That was an overreaction to essentially...

    I agree. That was an overreaction to essentially nothing. I'd also put the Cancel Colbert nonsense on that list, although that's not directly comics related.
  16. No. I don't really like Jim Parsons. He's...

    No. I don't really like Jim Parsons. He's annoying.
  17. You keep making this all about you. It's not...

    You keep making this all about you. It's not about you. If by some coincidence you legitimately happen to hold several reactionary and resistant to change positions, but for non-reactionary reasons,...
  18. If the inside dope you're eager to provide the...

    If the inside dope you're eager to provide the author from your position as a white male is something like "white males are afraid you'll take their toys away and they interpret calls for more...
  19. Oh yeah. Rational, objective and reason are...

    Oh yeah. Rational, objective and reason are abused in these debates. Some people seem to define them as "truths handed down by me from atop white guy mountain, where I can see the issues affecting...
  20. A lot of people playing the empathy card (in this...

    A lot of people playing the empathy card (in this debate in general) seem to be asking that others emphasize with their fears that their longstanding privilege is being threatened. That's a tough ask.
  21. I don't think I'm angry, but maybe a little...

    I don't think I'm angry, but maybe a little exasperated that some superhero comics fans are still so backward, and that reactionaries that don't truly care about comics are jumping into the debate...
  22. Thor isn't being treated badly. He's just getting...

    Thor isn't being treated badly. He's just getting a new storyline where he has to seek redemption and recover his mantle. He'll eventually get it back, the female Thor will die or become Thorella or...
  23. It's says a lot that people have more problems...

    It's says a lot that people have more problems with Thor temporarily being a woman than Thor temporarily being a frog.
  24. I've read the issue. He kills a kid. And as far...

    I've read the issue. He kills a kid. And as far as I know he never faces any real consequences for it.
  25. Do you ever think that maybe going into...

    Do you ever think that maybe going into conversations with such a negative attitude, assuming the worst of the other party, and assuming people won't listen you might be a self-fulfilling prophecy?
