This will be my last post for now, since I got an infraction—presumably for allowing myself to be pulled into the battle of passive aggression. I will take solace in the fact that, surely, those who...

I laughed when I read these because I've never been on reddit or any MRA website. (Outside of following the rare link.) I know you guys would love me to be an MRA, but I can't live up to your...

A. Are you defining sexism in that way, or is that a result? If the former then I'd question the usefulness of the term, if the latter I'd require proof that's rooted in biology (since your assertion...

I never asserted this. If you'd like me to answer the question without the bold, I can.

I see. I appreciate the "physical" aspect of patriarchy—men predominate positions of power, authority, and ownership; therefore, society is organized largely by men—however, the value of...

So then, in your view, "We want to end misogyny as as endemic feature of our socioeconomic reality." follows logically from "We want wage equality." Is that fair to say?


We were specifically...

It matters to me, on several levels. First, the cause determines the enemy. If the cause is employer discrimination, we go after employers. If the cause is our economic system, then we go after our...

Sorry, I was loose in my usage of "non-discriminatory". I meant to refer only to employer discrimination—as that's what I believe Arquette was alluding to. I fully concede the existence and...

I will check these out. Thanks.

Edit:

(1) This is about the "pay gap" (ie. different pay for work that may or may not be similar), not what I called the "wage gap" (different pay for nearly...

Do you know any sources, off the top of your head, that convincingly establish discrimination as a cause? I honestly haven't seen any, though I have not gone searching per se.


That's a radical...

On Patricia Arquette: Her onstage comments were plenty dubious enough, never mind her backstage ones.

To what extent does gender wage inequality (ie. different pay for approximately the same work)...

Song of the Sea looks beautiful. I'll have to watch it at some point.

I re-watched Time of Eve last night. It's a nice film, though hardly groundbreaking. It explores the possibility of relationship between humans and androids, and it does so through a simple,...

I couldn't quite get into Kyoukai no Kanata, but the animation is beautiful.


Should be good. I'm excited to get my BD and art-book.

Yep, Seb has it right. Lots of people, despite being somewhat bored by the first half of DRRR, end up really liking it (kind of like Steins;Gate, or Planetes). Doesn't mean that you'll be one of...

I watched From Up on Poppy Hill last night. The soundtrack was excellent, but everything else was average or below it, by Ghibli standards. The main characters had potential, but they deserved a...

I'd say there's some payoff. At least, the second half of the show is completely different from the first half. The main drama takes off around episode 12 (if I remember correctly) and from there on...

I started Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood a few days ago. I vaguely recall watching a few episodes of the original on t.v., but for all intents and purposes I'm new to the series. It's alright so...

I'm not particularly familiar with him or his work, but damn, 33 is young. Very sad.
