    Perhaps it is accurate. Unfortunately, you've done nothing to justify a claim that it is-and thus you are question begging.

    It explains nothing. I understand her perfectly.

    Your little show isn't doing anything to further your cause. We've all justified the claim that you don't know what you're talking about, as you made up the term generic feminism and seem to know nothing about first wave feminism, second wave feminism, or third wave feminism, which are very basic things. You could have learned quite simply without having ever taken a women's studies class or anything that would offend you that deeply.

    Having an argument about subject matter which you do not understand, and making up your own words, but then turning around and acting like you know better than the people you're discussing it with is pretentious and pseudo-intellectual at best, and absolutely absurd at worst.

    In the interest of fairness, I'll properly address Jenaphor's previous attempt at justification, which she has declined to clarify:

    Relevant. A more authoritative source :

    A stipulative definition imparts a meaning to the defined term, and involves no commitment that the assigned meaning agrees with prior uses (if any) of the term. Stipulative definitions are epistemologically special. One has a right to stipulatively define terms as one sees fit; the constraints here are practical, not epistemological.
    One wonders why several members of Typology Central seem to take such exception to this.

    I don't what it means to believe in a definition of a word. I did not interpret the term "generic Feminism"; I (stipulatively) defined it.

    Neither definition is "accurate", because it is inappropriate to talk of "accuracy" in this context: you've simply provided a lexical definition of "strawberry" as well as a stipulative one. I don't what it means for a definition to "surround" something.

    I've no idea what's being said here. It seems to be some sort of conclusion, which, given the quality of the foregoing attempt at justification, is probably inaccurate.

    You certainly use a lot of words for someone whose comprehension is so poor. You seem quite adept at your specialized jargon but can't even work out the meaning of a post that I would presume any intelligent, educated person could understand.

    Your logic (the way it flows) is not objective. Your logic is subjective. It is not based upon any external measurable thing.

    Language *is* a form of communication. We are saying that you presenting the argument that you disagree with generic feminism is not a reference to anything that has been established as a real, feminist theory. You're disagreeing with some particular manifestation of feminism, and then saying that all feminism is incorrect based upon this premise. You are not using terms that suggest you even understand feminist theory in the slightest.

    Your definition "surrounds" something by encompassing the abstract concept she's attempting to illustrate with strawberries.

    You can't defend an argument for feminism being incorrect if there are no objective parameters for what you're disagreeing with. You're going to have to actually refer to something in feminist theory and say that the entire movement of feminism is "incorrect" for some inherent reasoning in feminist theory, which you appear to have no knowledge of.

    I think you're an ISFJ (note that I love ISFJs [but not you, sir]); I just think you use way too much Si and Fe for INTP...and just have a lot of Ti for an ISFJ.

    Either that or you're like teenaged INTP college student who is in a hellacious Ti/Si loop (still doesn't explain the Fe, though) who then fell face first into a philosophy book and forgot to use his Ne.

    Disagree. Objective logic considers all aspects of the viewed concept or object. Once all aspects are considered, it's no longer rationale that's focused on solely the negative.
    The problem is that what is considered to be "all aspects" ultimately ends up as a subjective evaluation. It's quite frankly impossible to conceive of all aspects, because there are essentially an infinite number of aspects associated with any concept, in its broader and narrower scales.

    Did you notice that not once did I say he wasn't entitled to his view? I recall saying that he was entitled to his view but that his definition was based on rationale, instead of objective logic. And considering how he's been purporting to logic in his rebuttal to a number of members, it's necessary to illustrate his own subjectivity.
    His logic clashes with your own logic. There's no harm in that. What's the point of all this fighting, then?

    This is a two-fold issue. The first issue is his rationale, that he believes his views to be objective in nature where they're highly subjective. He's welcome to believe his subjective view but if he wants to improve his world view, he might want to opt out of his subjective reasoning, taking all parts of the whole concept in mind, prior to rejection.
    A very subjective line of reasoning, in and of itself. There's nothing wrong with subjectivity; embracing it can be a very refreshing experience. Or it might not be. That's what makes it so interesting to me.

    And quite frankly, it's disappointing to see a Ti-dom who's incapable of objective logic.
    Now, come on, let's stop ascribing these things to functions. That's just silly.

    The accuracy is blatantly obvious to everyone but yourself and yet, you still continue playing semantical games. Mayhaps English isn't your first language hence the opaqueness? It would be preferable to believe there's a struggle with an online translator since anything else would point to the unflattering.

    What does it explain to you? You're welcome.

    Provided are a number of definitions from an authoritive source.. In the interests of brevity, not all words have been defined, only the ones that might be considered challenging to you. Hope this helps with comprehension.

    I see.

    In order to suggest inaccuracy, it's necessary to comprehend the prior.

    If you feel this discussion is pointless, then why are you challenging my posts? While you have the right to do so, it makes no sense to suggest a cease discussion when your actions reflect the exact same actions you're reviling.

    And welcome to Stage 3 of Forum Discussion Syndrome: Arguing About the Motivations of the Other Poster's Post
    Already you're showing signs of moving into Stage 4: Arguing About the Specific Definitions of Words the Other Poster Is Using

    On topic, I actually would consider myself a feminist (though I am but a lowly man)-- I'm for women being completely equal with men, so long as we both understand that we are gifted in different ways. On a baseline, we're all the same, but there are some things women are naturally better at than men, and vice-versa. I feel like one of the problems with the radical feminists is that they take their views so extremely that people (average men-people especially) take their motivations as being "I want to be a man" rather than "I deserve the same rights as men". That and anyone yelling things loudly and angrily gets people mad at them. No one like extremists.

    I don't agree that I have played "semantical games"; I don't agree that I've been unclear; English is my first language. Feel free to inform me when you're prepared to justify the claims that you've made here-I've more than done the same for my own. If you don't agree that I have, it seems we're at an impasse.

    A few of the expressions you used made me wonder whether you were a fluent, but non-native, English speaker.

    Quote Originally Posted by Jenaphor View Post

    Er, what? I haven't proffered a stipulative definition. I've simply described your actions: you were given an opportunity to clarify your remarks, but did not.

    I now know what you mean by "objectivity". Regrettably, the meanings of the other terms as you used them remain obscure: listing all the lexical definitions you can find for the words doesn't help me understand what you meant when you used them above. It thus doesn't help me understand what's meant by the rather unusual phrase "There's no objectivity to the flow of your logic".

    It's like me saying to a friend that "God is good" and, upon being asked what I mean by "good", appealing to this. My friend would understandably be pretty confused.

    Sure: you can stipulatively define any term-even ones which don't exist-in any way you want. I could take the term "jenaphor" and stipulatively define it as an adjective meaning "late, i.e. tardy", and then truly say "The train is jenaphor". I'm not sure why I'd want to, though. This is all philosophy 101.

    It's an answer. Just not your answer.

    If you feel this discussion is pointless, then why are you challenging my posts? While you have the right to do so, it makes no sense to suggest a cease discussion when your actions reflect the exact same actions you're reviling.
    Mostly because it's interesting to me. Forgive me if I have implied that I revile your actions. That was not my intention. Instead, I'm just asking for you to consider that, perhaps, what he's talking about reflects an accurate assessment of reality as he perceives it. Furthermore, this assessment is just as valid as your own. Finally, if this is the case, perhaps it would be better to discuss the finer points of each others' perceptions, rather than dismiss each other forthwith. I'm asking you to do this, and not him, because I perceive you as the more reasonable person in the discussion, even if we may not agree on all points.

    Considering his condescending tone with other members, the least he can do is to admit he's being irrational.
    What purpose would that serve? Are you so unsure as to the reasonableness of your disagreement that you need him to validate it? If he's going to be a dick, he's going to be a dick. You debase yourself by caring about what he thinks.

    Distinction, Ti-dom not Ti.
    Point still stands. Functions describe preferences and tendencies, rather than processes.
