    So remove a man's need to assert power and women can stop looking for attackers?

    Seems unachievable. What makes women so different?

    Mostly, our culture, probably also some of it being biological, but possibly not uncorrectable. Woman as object, sex as power, power as subjugation, , domination associated with masculinity, etc. Other things also, loose societal structures, marginalized populations. I definitely don't pretend to have answers, but it's easy to see how things are fucked up.

    Yup.

    Going back to the whole feminism thang, I think the turning point will come when women complain to cosmetic companies about their adverts for foundation matching people's skin tones not showing any men in the shots. Why are women the only one's with complexes about their skin tone? I mean I'm rarely thinking "wow I wish I had airbrushed skin" but I'm kinda thinking I might be like that whether I was a man or not.

    Plenty of women are into power trips. Don't kid yourself.

    That's obvious, and I don't think anybody was kidding themselves.

    Met one at uni. Kind of caught me off guard as she was someone I was attracted to but I was in a relationship. I had no clue how to rebuke her without being overly harsh but sending a clear message.

    Some people are, though. Because of "power dynamics." Those folks are out there, believe me.
    I looked out this morning and the sun was gone
    Turned on some music to start my day
    I lost myself in a familiar song
    I closed my eyes and I slipped away

    WTF

    In fact double WTF

    So much wrong the world...
    What's the problem here Lark?
    You mean except for these?
    • Defining women rapists as "mimicking men".
    • - Stripping women of their agency.
    • - Defining men as rapists.
    • The dichotomy between desire and force.
    • The true scotsman lesbian.


    Nothing, nothing at all. You are doing just fine
