Re: Misogyny on EF? Let's discuss

There’s loads of posts anti female and loads anti male. When divorce or equal salary debates take place for example the anti bloke brigade are regularly giving it the ‘men don’t contribute to housework, they don’t do two jobs in effect’ it gets some temperatures raised. Likewise there are a bunch of posts you could say are mysoginistic particularly about sexual objectification and the like.

It’s part of life. Hoping everyone will behave perfectly is dreamland stuff. There is a lot lot worse than the postings you find on this forum.

I've been accused by a few members on this forum of such behavior. The thing that many don't get is that I and many many other couldn't care less whether you have a penis or a vagina, I disagree with your opinion, not with your sex.
I disagree with your penis. It is all about sex. As some psychologists say, women and men communication is totally based on sexual context. Once here On the forum people identified themselves as a man or woman, same things happen and your reply would depend on the gender. This goes unintentionally.

Re: Misogyny on EF? Let's discuss

Let‘s face it - this site is shit. It always used to be shit, but there were some of us that tried to keep it going as we relocated in Switzerland (me in 1986).

Now it is no longer informative, and is purely a place for internet trolls.

It used to be a place where us people that relocated here could find useful information, or just simply banter. Those days are long gone.

While you might be driven by noble sentiment, I’m afraid you flunked in your all-inclusive* ratings.
What about those with neither? The rampant discrimination of disenfranchised WONG’s (w/o notable genitals) is utterly shameful and has to end!

Not at all - I very frequently find genuinely useful information on the site - for example there was a recent thread on eigenmietwert.

Re: Misogyny on EF? Let's discuss

olygirl, thanks for that example with the gaming room even though I cant see how it shows misogyny (at all).

I was wondering how you or women like you would react to another example... an online gaming group, girls only, a guy walks in and they start sexist remarks and advances...
Once the guy escapes that room wonder what would he say ?

No, I am certainly not! Why are men with smaller penises discriminated against? Why are we judged purely on physical appearance and not on the quality of our brains?

It has nothing at all to do with physical attributes - really nothing at all. The person, the integrity is what counts. Everything else is just unimportant.

I just responded to your post - no, more, no less

Are you sure you're not just prodding something dead with a pointed stick since 1986?

Do you need advice regarding a PR agency for an image makeover? Some of them have good strategies for covering evident hypocrisy. I bet you never shared your homework with other kids at school

Have no clue what you are talking about. I do not need an „image makeover“. I am very happy with my self-accomplished ‚me‘, as well as my daughter, who is equally successful.

I really give a shit about insignificant little poops like you.

No my daughter was offered a doctorate position, following her bachelors and masters. Thanks for asking.

Actually, I asked about penis size and you turned this into an advertisement about yourself. Pavlov dog thing or just coincidence?

Umm, yes. The female does exist, and does have an opinion. If you and your dog are offended by this, then I am sure that there are professionals that can support you.

Think you’re right. A simple PR makeover isn’t what you need. Not really surprised that you “don’t have a clue of what I’m talking about” when you fail to recognize the contradictions of your own posts. Never mentioned your daughter in any way but I’m glad to hear that she is successful in her endeavours.
Allow me to suggest, that “don’t really give a shit about insignificant little poops like you” would be a more appropriate wording to convey your contempt. Think about it, giving me your shit is an exchange of sorts while withholding your shit is often seen as a lack of engaging in cultural dialog, presenting gifts etc.

Re: Misogyny on EF? Let's discuss

Late to the party.

I don't think it's misogyny because it's not aimed exclusively at women. Well, the aggression seems to be not aimed at all. Newbies, women, men, all get a share of aggression.

There are some members that have and unwarranted outbursts of rage that should grant a few days offline. Mods...
