    I'm going on a tangent here, but I think they key is to accept the sexuality of women instead of labeling it as "slutty" or something dirty/disdainful (even other women are guilty of this). Women have their sexual urges just as men do and there's nothing wrong with that. Some men also seem to associate women exclusively with weakness, confusion, craziness, when these are traits present among people of both genders. There are naturally strong willed, decisive women just as there are complete pussies among males (honestly half of the male gender seem like wusses).

    My point is women are human just as men are. We're all horny, confused, silly specimens.

    no, it's not that, you just don't seem to have the empathy to actually see it from a differing view. and apparently, neither do i.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    My point with that comment is that our society is on a trajectory toward less sexism. And my statement is true. In the past, no one would have even known about the gang rape. And as much as people are sticking up for the rapists, there are many times more people who are horrified by it.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Yes. Also MUCH too defensive to be rational.

    Digging a hole is not mutually exclusive from telling the truth.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Trajectory towards less sexism =/= life is the bubbles.

    Don't ask people to shut up and be content for what they have just because it's a tad bit better than 40 years ago or something. That's ludicrous.

    I do have the empathy. I can see how it could be uncomfortable. After taking both sides into account, I just disagree with you labeling it as sexist. If you have more context to add (was it whispered in your ear? were you groped when the guy said it?), my position might change. But if it was just a passing comment, no, it's not sexist. I asked you earlier if a male doing something that makes you uncomfortable is sexist by your definition because I don't agree with that assertion.

    Where did I ask people to shut up and be content for what they have? I explained why the labeling of the US as a "sexist society" bothered me. Nothing more. You're now creating straw men out of that statement, claiming what...now I'm against any further progress? That no one should ever feel violated? I think I've been quite clear on this. Maybe you skipped over some posts.
