Anyone Heard Of The Term Womanface ? I have not. No. Neither had I until now. Do those "women" in Monty Python count? Is this an instance of Auditory Yellowface? Non-oriental voice-dub actors using over-the-top oriental accents. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fIeBOIZigJ0 https://www.yout...

^ I lived in the UK most of my life, always in cities with large Muslim populations (over 40% in my last place) but I've never had a Muslim friend in my life, at least anybody who could be called close. I've currently got only one black friend, and even he is only black on his dad's side. We're quit...

I think labor theory of value can be considered as... maybe rather labor aspect of value? Yes. I wish Marx hadn't tried to take over the term "value" quite like he did. To me it's not really the theory of value, it's as you say an aspect, a way of seeing value, a concept in itself. I thin...

Ugh, self loathing white people are the f*****g worst, it's just so cringe. Well that's one way of putting it, though I doubt it'll win hearts and minds. But I pretty much agree with you, assuming you're talking about those cartoons. I think they're mostly indulging in the straw-man fallacy, and I ...

I think it's kind of an outdated ideology now too, a product of it's time.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...

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, ...
