General Misc. / Re: So, whut up with male 'privilege'?

Seems odd to make some comment about seahorses and then bow out.

I thought you might be interested in engaging some larger amount of females who might disagree with you, rather than Bakker fans who are more likely to support your initial conclusions.

eta: Apologies if my tone seems harsher than necessary. I find I come across as more of a dick than intend to.

Do you want a discussion about your question or not? [I saw you posted, but not your question about male privilege? If you want I'll do it for you.]

It's only locked because it hit twenty-something pages.

If you want an answer to your query, you can make a new feminism thread and repost your OP from here over there.

Topic seems dead here anyway.

My point is if you want a discussion of this, you're better off finding a place that has a larger percentage of women posting.

It's up to you.

"Depends on whether you can describe the argument I'm putting forward (you don't have to agree with it, just be able to describe the idea of it correctly). Otherwise I'd be giving permission to link a missinterpretation of my argument, which would be all sorts of train wreck."

Wait, don't you have a Westeros account? You can just ask your question in the feminism thread.

"demonstrating that men are bigger and stronger than women."

You mean on average right? And what does this have to do with feminism?

Seemed relevant to the topic. I think most people suffer from confirmation bias, and it's a good idea to explore why men are so resistant to feminism.

I'll also say I find the EkyannusIII references to accepting biology to be dubious, as there's no reference to any peer reviewed journals to clarify/support his points.

I am glad to see Meyna here, as I believe that makes at least one actual female who is interested in discussing such issues around these parts. I know Three Pound Brain largely reads as biased figures all agreeing with each other, so it would be good to have some female perspectives here.

eta: If you're interested I'd link this thread to Westeros as I'm curious to see the reactions.

Confessions of a Former Misogynist

"When I realised how my behaviour must have made my girlfriends feel, I felt sick. There wasn’t a feminist conspiracy to deprive nice men from getting sex and girlfriends. The girls I’d been out with hadn’t dumped me because I was ‘too nice’ or because I was depressed, but because I was an emotionally abusive arsehole. That’s not an easy thing to admit, but it’s a lot easier to fix once you’ve done it."

Worked at various nonprofits, but also just noticed in online conversations how people weren't aware of the varied health resources out there.

The biggest things people didn't seem to no about were resources for those who were disabled, emergency/911 special needs registries so EMTs have info prior to arrival, and access to cheap/free mental health.

Then I even talked to a friend in the mental health provider field, and he had never known about the resources.

Just made me think it would be good to start having this kind of information in one place. But I think a Google Doc won't cut it, will probably need at least a simple website for ease of navigation.

This seems the place to ask - slowing putting together some comprehensive stuff on US health care resources here.

Was thinking people here might help with the mental health section. Can be local or national.

There's a bunch of other stuff in there, like special needs and disability registries divided by state/city/county and one for DC+ its surrounding area.
