in the desert. And it should be a wretched hive of scum and villainy.
Ah; I'll have to take a look at her writing. As I understand it, she's focused on the "gaming" subculture, which I have very little contact with.
Who are the prominent feminists that you're talking about? I can't think of a single one that has said that confidence is a negative trait, in men or women. Quite the reverse, actually: people who are secure in themselves do not need to demonize others to support their self-worth. That goes for other genders, other religions, and other political views. If a woman turns you down for a date and you're self-confident, you shrug your shoulders and pick someone else: it's the men who are not self-confident who are likely to call her a "dyke" or a "frigid bitch".
Every political movement has its radical nutjobs who get a lot of press because they're radical nutjobs. Judging feminism by the nutjobs is like judging all Republicans by Glenn Beck, or all Christians by the Westboro Baptist Church.
I have been dating a politically active feminist for over twenty-five years now, and I count a number of self-identified feminists (some academics) among my friends and family for longer than that. Some are lesbian, some are bi, but most self-identify as straight and have successful, self-confident husbands. I imagine that all of them would roll their eyes at the phrase "feminist agenda" or a "gay agenda". Those aren't real things. They're just scare words.
I honestly can't tell if you are serious, or doing an excellent parody of an insecure adolescent who is scared of strong women because a woman turned him down once. Please advise.
+1 for you if I had the mod points....
Thanks for trying anyway.
(Funny thing: five minutes ago I saw someone else do the exact same thing that I did: posting a comment in one story that was intended for another. So I still feel dumb, but less *uniquely* dumb.)
Argh! That's where I'd MEANT to post it.
Quick, change it to 12345!
For the few equity traders that buy Bitcoin that it is rare and that the Bitcoin economy is going to grow is enough. They just buy some Bitcoin and hold on to it.
I'll just leave this here:
About the "make beautiful jewelry from it" though... not so much.
People also like to possess it because it is rare and you can make beautiful jewelry from it, some of which is traditionally made from gold.
I wearing one while driving in NYC the other day, and every time I made one particular gesture at other drivers, they made the exact same gesture back at me. Uncanny.
The next time you want to post a broad, bigoted claim that covers well over a billion people, at least have the courage to do so with your own account instead of AC. If you're afraid of the repercussions of doing so, maybe you should stop and ask yourself why there would be repercussions in the first place.
All of those testimonies against Rappe were also unproven allegations and rumors. Your own source makes that clear.
You seem to find it easy to vigorously defend a man's reputation against unfounded allegations, but you call a woman a hooker or "too close to call" based on... no such allegations. Interesting.
