Angel, people are just reacting to all your hate. If you don't *mean* it, employ that EQ you claim to have, and use less hateful tones and phrases. It's the tone, not the topic, that people are responding to.

Notice people didn't jump down Funko's throat. That isn't because he's a friend. Nor because he's a fellow "guy". It's because his tone is friendly, passive. When he takes a loud and hateful tone, people here piss him down just as much as they have been pissing down on you. And everytime they do, you post more hate tone at them. Makes you an extremely easy target.

You might want to consider dropping your expectations that everyone is trying to beat you down here. As you've misinterpretted what was said repeatily. For instance, it isn't females fault that sciences are being taught less, it's the cirriculum's fault that the sciences aren't being emphasized. There was mention of various supposition why, but that doesn't lay blame.

But... just to get you hating again: <Flame> it's all women's fault as this is the society they raised their children to make. And if you don't believe that, look at the progress made in society when women stopped teaching their children that girls couldn't do well in school, that girls couldn't be leaders, and that girls couldn't do maths and sciences. Once the teachings were changed, the society changed. Now all women have to figure out is how to be a CEO of a multi-billion dollar company while having 3 kids and never missing a single event in their children's lives. Or so says the leading "How to be a modern woman/lifestyle" magazines. <\Flame>

Just try a different tack. You get better results being nice/using honey, you know, regardless of people's ages or sexes.

Well, CG is your Entelligence. That's the term for all of you that exists outside of your physical self. All your writings, postings, email, docs, journals, music, art, etc etc etc. Everything that is a physical recording of your expressions of yourself. Even photographs by you, if done as art/expression, are part of your Entelligence.

It's more popular to call it EXtelligence now though. It's more intuitive for people.

That's actually what it is called. Not all of Chris exists in "Chris the person". Much of Chris now resides in electronic text, on all the forums you have posted on. that's part of you. It's a record of your thoughts and person. It's officially recognized in the cognitive sciences. The proper terms for it are now: Entellegence, and Extelligence as well as about 6 more that I don't recall. Entelligence was the original, but in the last few years, Extelligence has become the dominate term for it. It's just easier for people to understand. "The part of my intelligence that resides outside of me."

Of course, for most people, there shouldn't be a record kept of their extelligence. It tends to be much dumber then they are in person.

I'd venture to guess that the majority of men here accept and believe that society and culture do indeed denigrate women. All the time and in many ways. That's a bit of a no-brainer. But, unfortunately, Horny has not approached the topic in a spirit of mutual exploration. When anyone comes on here (or anywhere) and pontificates about something, it's akin to your wife, mate, whoever, pointing out something glaringly obvious. It's plain old annoying.
You could have had a veritable army of men from this site allied to your cause and agreeing with you in beautiful lock-step fashion (well, maybe not the scientific parts, but I'm no scientist). Instead, you put everyone on the defensive and repeatedly do so because you are absolutely flogging a dead horse.
Nobody likes to be labelled ignorant, stupid, backwards, unfeeling, etc...which is what a lot of your "mancentric" threads seems to do right from the start.
I'd be more than happy to discuss things like gender neutrality, advertising and pornography, sex industry workers, standardized testing, ad nauseum and how it applies to the world we live in.
But you've never posed the question--it's all been rhetorical and rude.
And the responses have been in kind.

Er, that's what I did. Or are you still upset that I don't think there's anything in the main theories postulated in the program? And you have the nerve to complain that I don't read your posts?

YOU started the abuse, Horns. Stop fucking complaining about getting it back. If you don't want to elevate, then keep it clean.

And we asked several times if you were just joking, and you said nothing affirmative at all. I find it amusing that you're pretending to be all reasonable NOW after your diatribes in the last two days.

I don't doubt that this is partially true BGH, but its also true that whenever I or indeed Scabby say anything feminist, no matter how well reasoned/researched or how eloquently, you all jump down our throats about 'man hating' etc (although you've just said you all agree society denigrates women, which is odd since if I say that I get the world and his wife criticising me), and lets not forget the wild accusations being made about what I apparently think, when really you cant know what I or anyone else thinks. You lot dont usually reason back you just contradict or laugh at us/accuse us of being 'screechy'/insult our intelligence, which is extremely annoying because it feels like having your views (and this is a personal subject) dismissed and laughed at despite there being substantive content- thats guaranteed to piss anyone off, so I think there's a large element of hypocrisy here. You can't ask me/us to be always perfectly behaved and logical emotionally detached citizens if you cant do that too. I think this thread proves you cant, given some of the insults being thrown at me.

Looking back to the start of this thread I think its fairly obvious I was posting the articles out of interest and asking semi joking questions to draw you into responding (Can we keep Johnny Depp being hardly a major scientific question), and in fact the thread was going quite well up until shining got involved in this and the other thread, started accusing me of lying, being a sexist, telling me what I think and various other crap. Yes I let my temper get the better of me at that point, but hey I'm Scottish. I wouldnt be the first or last on here to do that, so again, dont be a hypocrite.

Looking back I also accept that some of the posts I made up to that point could be construed as other than joking. In fact I hadn't realised that when posting, but again you can't have it all ways- you've all posted really sarcastic evil/stupid/annoying stuff on CG in many different contexts as 'jokes' so don't ask me not to do it. YOu're asking me to accept you when you're joking around, well I'd like the same in return thanks. The point at which you asked if I was joking, or insisted I must be, was when I had started to get into the arguing, so by then I wasn't, and the asking pissed me off any more since it seemed that you were even further dismissing everything I said without even looking at it, and it was pretty obvious most of you were criticising without seeing either the prog or the articles, and therefore assuming the worst.

Basically I'm not a man hater, a sexist, someone with childhood issues, a bitch, an uncritical believer or anything else along those lines. I'm someone who gets worked up about things they believe in, and a lot of people believe in the thing I believe in even if you dont. But you have to also consider your behaviour since all behavioural transactions are a two way street. You lot are usually dismissive, brusque, rude, sarcastic, insulting and often then say 'oh we were only joking, you shouldnt have taken it so seriously'. Can you at least see how that might be construed as confusing/annoying/offensive and why I bite back? Dont wind me up and then act all offended when I go off on one. i dont think that applies to just me or just this thread either.

Now can we all just make up and play like nice children?

oh, oh, oh, you are so wrong! If I wanted to participate in that kind of SERIOUS shit discussion with "experts" about some trash seen on TV (TV!) I'd go to Poly.

It's a VERY long tradition to jump on "serious" threads and take some kind of extreme position (you may call it trolling, but I think it's more regarded as an art form).

I think the reason for that was ACOL (am I right)? There were a lot of office posters with no intention going back to schooll/Poly ("Discuss"/"What if"). We sometimes made up serious threads just to do an interesting work of art - I copied the topics several times from there - I even had an AE "Fred Stolan".

And how could I really be upset on a topic like this? It's just so INCREIDBLE stupid, a perfect example of a polyesque thread. I strange theory presented by some scientist on TV that makes you say "oh, well, I don't care *shrug*". If you take those things serious you're an easy prey here

Speaking for me: That was exactly my intention.
Extinction or not. Male or female. Doesn't really count. I don't care if men will extinct, but "leaving forever" here counts.
So relax! It's just internet/TV blah.

I've never found 'its only the internet' to be a particularly convincing argument since you can be arrested for activities conducted via the net, and all human interaction means something to someone whether its face to face, on the net, in a letter, or a phone call.
