I think it's kind of an outdated ideology now too, a product of it's time. I think the "labor theory of value" does not account to i.e. automatization - the same things can be produced with way less amount of labour but they are just as useful or useless as they were before. There's enorm...

Well, a psychotic episode is an illness, and you can't rightly be held responsible for that.

Is it problematic to my personal valid views on feminism? I'm not sure tbh...

As long as you're not nasty to women who aren't nasty to you, I don't think there's anything to worry about.

When I mentioned good looking men I didn’t mean for dating. I meant for job promotions and branding. Big business likes their GQ types, just like movie stars and rock stars who are sexy bring in box office money. Oh! you mean marketing. Yes, pretty boys have some privilege but it's not quite the sa...

Yeah i ended up saying other things that I probably shouldn't have, as I often do when im upset and irrational.

That's called being human. But I didn't notice anything nasty.

I guess I got confused because of all the flame bait dox has been posting everywhere else... maybe im having one of my 'crazy' paranoid times again? I honestly dont know. What has Dox posted recently that qualifies as "flame bait?" Back when there was still a lot of intellectual debate on...

I suppose life is always considered to be a little easier for people who are nice looking but wouldn’t that apply to men as well? To a certain extent but men are judged more on their financial wealth than their looks. Even then, with looks its more to do with physical strength/height > attractivene...

Marxism-Leninism and "real socialism" of the 20th century are indeed distinct from various other forms of communal life (medieval monasteries come to my mind) and definitely they are not "anything left-wing or focusing on common good". My personal opinion is that communism simpl...

I just read an invitation to a Xmas dinner. It is something that will ooccur in Advent but that's what it is called. I read that there will be dancing. My first reaction was how broad that term dance is. It is a hypernym. I was wondering why they refused to tell us what kind of dancing they are tal...

To the degree that feminism is egalitarian, I've liked feminism for a long time, because I've liked equality for a long time, and as equality gets so much positive lip-service these days, I imagine I'm in good company, in as far the lip service is sincere. Most of what I dislike about it is when it ...

Just a reminder, this all sprung from an undirected shot I took at apologists for communist atrocities that someone else decided to make personal, I can't really help it when other people jump in front of my comments. Undirected, unsubstantial and unnecessary, as vague accusations always are. Now, ...

I have a feeling that Cornflake is going to do a Neo from the Matrix and swing through this thread creating waves. I was kind of hoping he would. I've seen him deal quite well with content much like the stuff I was objecting to here. He deleted the offending posts and remarked: "It would be be...

I've felt rather like that since losing most of my access to my preferred types of unusual people. I don't want to be alone but I don't want to be with the mainstream. One thing I've found useful is to stay mindful of the notion that extremely normal people are probably quite rare. I don't do well i...

I remember my 21st. I went to a restaurant with a few friends, talked way too much, and couldn't understand why they all left early. :oops:

My favorite novel is "Watership Down," which is about rabbits and has a mystical/fantastical element to it. And a lot of dry British humor that I like, most of which did not make it into the very dark film version.

Loved that book.

Not quite, but something similar here. I remember one of my partners was always getting into emotionally painful problems, and when she told me about them it would bring me down. I couldn't muster up the detachment to avoid it, and I remember feeling very frustrated because I'd just got my own life ...
