    Thank you for repeating yourself, I appreciate the reminder.
    Agent Smith, you are a human which means you were born into this world, right?
    Has anyone ever tried to come at you while your Mom was around?
    Have you ever tried to get between a Mother Bear and one of her cubs?
    Either literally or metaphorically?
    I have. Both ends of it. I have encountered a Mother Bear and her cubs, right here in Arizona. I was never so thankful to be in an automobile but it would have been a shit ton safer if it wasn't a convertible.
    I have also released Mother Bear in protection of my own cubs.
    Please, understand this respectively, there is no hu(man) more powerful than a Momma Bear whose cubs are being threatened. The explosive release of that power is born into every female and can be brought out when demanded. If it is a Momma Bear? We know where that power is and we are not about wasting it because it can take you (us) to our death.
    Speaking of death: do you know who Momma Bear will go to battle for and die for?

    Don't get me wrong and please don't judge me. Given the current parameters of my CPU and the data at my disposal, which I analyzed as best as I could, the output is as you've read in my previous post: women are only less powerful than women, not weak.

    Agent Smith

    Let me start with your last comment first. Why would you need me to be gentle? Are you vulnerable right now?
    Because you are not asking for or requesting for gentility, you are instructing me to approach your thoughts as though they are delicate in nature. Why is that?
  • Women hate
    let's rethink the situation (as properly as we can).

    Men don't rule the roost and women aren't lowest on the totem pole as it were.

    The reality is women aren't weak and men strong, women are only less powerful than men. In other words, females are simply lower in the pecking order, they are henpecking nevertheless.

    Women, keep looking up!
    Agent Smith

    Let me ask you something: do you really believe that women are only less powerful than men?

    I take objectification to mean the fixation/fetishization of the parts of a person's body and the ignoring of the person to whom this body belongs. Objectifying women == perceiving her as meat to be fucked in whatever way._db

  • Changing Sex
    Still overly concerned as to the contents of other folk's underwear, I see.


    It is odd. I'm not sure that is where the sexual identity for me lays. I do believe it is more in the mind than the contents of folk's underwear. But that is just my perspective.

    For me sexuality and its identity is on a continuum and throughout our lives we move from our starting point. Sometimes life and circumstances move us a little more in one direction from where we started, and life happens again, and we might move the other way.

    When I was exploring the idea of being with a woman, it was called just that, exploration.
    I didn't consider myself a homosexual, or a heterosexual with homosexual tendencies.
    For the duration of that time in my life I never wondered if I was a lesbian, I toyed with the label of being bi-sexual and landed on bi-curious. I only defined it as such, so when I was talking with people, they could kind of grasp what emotions I was encountering and where I felt most comfortable.

    I am sure there is another term for it now, but I am not familiar with it yet. Maybe someone who is more knowledgeable about the current definition can tell me.

  • Is Philosophy Sexist?
    That's beside the point. The point is that in any aggressively competitive game predominated by men, losing to a woman may have an extra bite to it, and if that's the case, an implicit bias could exist against women in these games. To be clear, I don't support such a bias, I'm just pointing out its existence.

    This forum takes on a kind of gladiatorial arena atmosphere from time to time, you must admit.

    Okay, I was just curious as to what sport, no offence intended.
    I absolutely agree with you in that the forum takes on that gladiatorial arena atmosphere from time to time. I have had to leave the arena, to nurse my wounds from battle on more than one occasion.
    It typically happens on the Political threads, and I will be an observer of the thread but someone pipes in with some bullshit and I jump in. Politics is a blood sport so you would think I would have learned my lesson but no such luck.
    As to your other point about losing to a female has an extra bite to it.
    I'd probably feel the same losing to a woman because there is that same inherent desire to win but society doesn't pressure women to one up another woman, so it wouldn't have the gender sting of what you seem to be expressing. In the same breath losing to a guy would almost seem implied or expected of a woman. So, if a woman doesn't feel the need to dominate another woman and we are expected to lose to a guy, who can we feel victorious over? Our selves, I guess.
    It's an interesting idea in pondering what you are saying because it kind of sounds like guys are getting all the pressure to not lose to a woman AND not lose to another guy?
    That feels like mental gymnastics to me...
    Am I completely off base or is what you are suggesting is happening that fucked up?
    Because if a guy is expected to be nothing short of victorious every time he steps on the mat, why would he ever try it?

  • Ukraine Crisis
    It makes me uncomfortable to know that there are governments who don't truly know their people, their morals, their ethical compasses, their feelings about other people the world over, yet the governments behave as though they have our best interests at heart. How do they know what we think if they never ask?
    We as people have much more in common than our governments will ever admit. If they admitted that, negotiations would be a lot less visible, a lot more productive and with a lot less stress for everyone involved. Peace :heart:
  • Is Philosophy Sexist?
    There’s absolutely no doubt that this is a man-centric forum. Women are welcome, of course, but just like in every other patriarchal culture strong women (think TimeLine) are not welcome.praxis

    I am not sure you have met the other women of the forum, besides myself. But I think it fair to say that there are other "strong women" in addition to TimeLine that absolutely feel as welcome as any man might.
    Why such broad strokes?
