    You believe this retarded shit why? and how does that exclude it from being inherently sexist? In fact i think that would make it even more sexist. LOL!!

    I think a good number of women just aren't interested in maths and sciences for completely understandable reasons. I believe you will be good at something you enjoy doing, so if your not interested you wont be good at it. There are women who are interested in it and I think they are perfectly capable of being good at it.

    Men and women both have different strengths and weaknesses I have a problem with society telling women they should be X because they think that's the best option for them. I think both men and women should have a choice and not forced fed by ideologies such a feminism.

    I really don't know but unlike people like you if she wanted to cook a dinner for her man I wouldn't call her incompetent and a loser like most feminists today.

    Truth be told, for all of the stupid anti-feminist crap I confront, it's been a good while since I've encountered something quite this ridiculous.

    Do you think that the reason they call it a 'hot topic' is because everyone is angry?

    I want to add onto this.

    This is a far simpler, more rational explanation than any other that has been offered so far.

    Liberals can't explain career choice this way though, because admitting that men and women might like different things violates a fundamental principle of liberalism: that people are born equal (i.e. biology doesn't influence your life). Thus, they have invented a conspiracy theory where male academics are "sexists": a cabal of evil men plotting to stop any women from becoming mathematicians or scientists.

    To make matters worse, feminist educators tell girls (from a very young age) that they can only have an identity if they take on a male-orientated career. Pro-feminist people here will argue that this is just about promoting choice, but in reality, all behaviours/life choices the feminists do not agree with are strongly discouraged...even something as innocuous as girls playing with dolls.

    In a nutshell, modern feminists believe that women have to do everything men do, and at least the same rate. If they don't, the men in X profession must be discriminating against women.

    My hunch is that those feminists have failed to attract a man, and are projecting their frustration upon men as a whole.

    I can't say. But if a lot of the people here are like me, anger isn't what they are feeling.

    At this point, the thread is like bear baiting.

    Look Hard would be no exception in that case, there's maybe three or four other regular posters who act the exact same way, I'd say there's additionally maybe two or three more who dont add much than to slag anyone trying to make a point for having a point to make in the first place and think they are witty, clever bastards all aloof from it all in the process.

    Then you have other posters who post exclusively on topics which are pretty damn personal to them and take on a significance all out of proportion to what they would anyone else and what they really should expect others to feel about the matter, its part of the reason I got so irrate about the vagaries of "hostility" a whiles back which were passed off as mere "tweeking" of the forum policies and rules, its totally and utterly in keeping with a number of trending opinions in the world at large but I think its got the potential to be extremely prohibitive of any dissenting or even differing opinions.

    Its not surprising this happens, because the forum is used not really for abstract discussion most of the time but socialising, its part of the reason the social threads trumph the MBTI theory threads or that the threads in which the forum is essentially discussing itself are the most popular. Maybe MBTI brings people here but I'm guessing they stay for more than just that. Anyone visiting bars or restaurants might go on the strength of the menu or beverages in stock but the service and crack will determine if they stay or go back. Although while its not surprising this happens it's also why I'm not surprised there's such a ruckus around some of the topics too.

    I don't know, it's kind of making me feel like this:


    Not a whole lot gets under my skin, but men claiming to know women better than women know women... The sheer audacity is truly staggering.

    I'm not so sure, its the mental equivalent of that, more like taking a shit. There's a lot of emoting going on here. By just about every poster I've read so far. Its just an emotional dumping ground.
