lauriloo,
"When's the last time you went on a date with a woman, Gerry?"

Irrelevant. I have straight friends both male and female. I`ve listened to my son as he tried to sort out why girls do what they do before coming to the conclusion women are crazy.

@lauriloo

I apparently have a "nice ass" according to several women. I don't necessarily know what that means for a man, but either way, I have one.

I`ve had four completely random, unknown women (3 middle-aged and 1 roughly my age and wasted) grab my ass - completely uninvited. They literally walked up behind me and grabbed my ass.

Now, being a man, I was socially expected to laugh it off. The people who were with me - male and female - laughed when it happened. There was zero outrage that someone just "sexually assaulted" me.

Now, imagine that I was a woman and that the attackers were men. This is the new face of sexism.

Modern Sexism:

1. A phenomenon in which men are believed to be immune to oppression.
2. A phenomenon in which women are believed to be perpetually oppressed.

That's funny `cause most women don`t want real feminism. They don`t want "real" equality. They want special privilege.


Two points:

1) Most people just go along with whatever is normal in the time and place in which they live. They want what they`re socialised to want. But I think most people have a general tendency to favour sexual equality because it appeals to a sense of fairness. Maybe I am somehow still naively optimistic.

2) Real feminism is about seeking special privilege. The idea that feminism has anything to do with sexual equality is a ridiculous lie. It`s a very successful lie that has helped feminists a great deal in their never-ending quest for never-ending sexism, but that doesn`t make it true. Feminism is a biological group advocacy ideology - it`s profoundly sexist from the foundations on upwards even in its mildest strains.

lauriloo-"can't separate what happens in the workplace with what happens between people personally"

So you admit that you want equality `sometimes`. Most likely when it suits your needs. And you probably like being treated `like a lady`, when it suits your needs.

It`s either 100% of the time or it`s not `equality`.

Simply put:
Woman offering to go Dutch is considered `Independent`.
Man offering to go Dutch is considered `Cheapskate`.

If you put her body language and facial expressions on the male model, he'd take on all those negative connotations, not to mention "Bakla".

More interesting is how un-filipino all Filipino models look. That nation has just about the strongest inferiority complex in the world. It`s like they managed to find some Chinese or white people and gave then ever so slight hints of Filipino features. They almost look like David Carradine in The Legend of Kung Fu.
