Well, the quantum analysts that I have dated in the past seem to have appreciated me. I try not to make it a habit.
PS. Am not „butch“
I think we usually pick dates, that appreciate us. It is a good habit.

Some people think they are so cool that everybody must like them . It can be tough to wake up to the realization that it isn’t so

It is unlike me but I wonder how genuine her Qs were or mission, tbh. Hope so.

Yeah, I don't like people disappearing, I wonder if we offered what she needed?

It is better to actually date than sit online trying to prove strangers wrong, lol. Enough of that here already

Or maybe they were discriminated against based on their looks? And not in personal relations, I don't mean that. Who could tell what makes some people more vocal. Do you also think that feminists from FEMEN are ugly/butchy? They seem pretty militant/radical to me.

My point is that feminism is not a uniform movement. It can't be. And the perceived "radical" ones (haven't really seen anything that would label them that way, maybe figuratively speaking or whatever) are not necessarily radical because they turned bitter after a few rejections from some males. You might have man-haters among women who declare themselves feminists, sure. But also among women who couldn't care less about feminism. Man-hating doesn't make one a feminist. Neither the "ugliness" a radical feminist.
FEMEN are very attractive, but they are paid activists who are, somewhat ironically, chosen specifically for their good looks.

Re: Swiss men and dating

That was her one and only post, and it was met with groans, and 15 or so pages of “replies”, very much OT. A bit overwhelming. Maybe she’s discouraged about continuing to post here, perhaps it’s a wind up. Who knows?

Everybody's good looking there, darlin'.

But I agree with the professional activists. It is a career now, even for minors.

What is this defeatist approach? It is not just local guys, then, I take it..

Spring is coming!

Let's all of us get out there and live! Well, after the quarantine times, I guess. Did I spell it right?

Probably to dispel the urban myths of ugly, man-hating feminists....?

Or, more probably because it appears to be more pragmatic, some of them in this organisation acknowledged the fact that pretty women are better seen and/or heard. The package/emballage counts, it's what I gathered from this thread too.

Btw, I suppose a good/most part of the organisation are volunteers i.e. not payed. It couldn't survive otherwise. And there must be a dose of deep conviction/"craziness" one needs in order to protest the way they do.

Sometimes it's called dialogue....in which OP is obviously not interested, it could be us (you, me, everyone here) or it could be her.

Even if it's not a wind-up, maybe OP just wanted to vent a little. Not really interested in strangers' judgements.

I think any organizaion above a certain size has a mix of both. Grassroots people doing ad hoc stuff on a low or zero budget, out of pure conviction, and some big bosses in comfortable offices planning big stuff with big money.

And most probably some overlap between the two.

A big "hit" that grabs a lot of attention is always good for recruiting new members and encouraging donations. So in the bigger picture it may be worthwhile doing such stuff just from a financial point of view.

Look at Amnesty. Look at Greenpeace. Same pattern everywhere.

The statistics will soon show that Star Wars geeks have a lower infection rate than Star Trek geeks due to the much greater incidence of full-face helmet wearing.
