104. Here's a clue for you
Or several.

First, no, the "normal behavior" of people being attacked ISN'T necessarily to become defensive and attack back. The NORMAL behavior of people who give a damn about the relationship,whether very personal (e.g., intimate) relationship or just between people in a community such as this is to say, "Wait, what did I do? I don't understand. How can I make this right?"

Second, the name of this forum is Women's Rights. Not "slugfest between men and women," but Women's Rights. Personally, I think it's an abysmal fucking ASSAULT on Women's Rights that there's any argumentation by MEN allowed in here, just as I think it's an abysmal fucking ASSAULT to have anti-religious tirades by atheists and such in the Religion and Theology Forum. I'm sure my take isn't shared by the administration here (otherwise things would be different), but that only means we apparently disagree, not that I'm wrong.

My point is: WHO CARES WHAT YOU THINK? I didn't post the OP or any other post in this to win friends and infuence people, ferchrissake. It's the WOMEN'S RIGHTS forum, not the "Let's hit our heads against the wall again and again trying to plead with men who don't want to get it to please, please, please get it" forum.

When you reach the point where you are discouraging sympathetic or allied men from offering assistance, you've gone farther than tactical wisdom would dictate.

Oh, that's just a crutch, and you know it deep in your own heart. There's no discouragement here, only threats to your white male privilege. I guaran-goddamn- tee you that the MEREST (sincere) pro-woman, feminist comments by any male in this forum would be met with such overwhelming applause and wild enthusiastic acceptance that it would nearly scare him off, for fear of being suffocated with cyber hugs and kisses. Ain't gonna happen.

FURTHER, why the hell should WE be the ones required to make nice and satisfy certain requirements (always changing, mind you -- as always) in order to get some action? IT'S ABOUT EQUALITY, dammit, not special favors. EQUALITY. No human should be UNequal, not even women.

Fuck that shit. Now I'm really angry.

FINALLY, if you fancy yourself a "sympathetic or allied man," they by Goddess, step right up and prove it. Stop being such a freakin' coward. You afraid of those other boys who're gonna call you a girley-man or worse?

Get out of here, trying to dictate to us how we SHOULD behave in order to earn our equality and our rights. Like I said: fuck that shit.
