Men are programmed to like women this way so they get attracted and f**k them to have a baby. But this has never left men so hence misogyny. Women want took good but don't want men's attention. Always been a rapist cliche "she dressed like that so that means she wanted sex" But feminists ...

This debate on sexual objectification of women misses two things:- 1. Men are biologically hardwired to physical attraction and the physical nature of sex if either gay or straight. Goldfish21 confirmed this when he said ( quote )“ As a gay man, we sexually objectify each other’s bodies all the time...

Are chippendales and women who pay to see male strippers not sexually objectifying men?. Many of these strippers are groped and leered at by older women they don`t find attractive.

Most do it for spare money only

It gets a bit easier as you get older Less pressure to socialise / date etc... You get to do your own thing Without sounding sexist or downplaying your struggle i think Aspergers can sometimes be easier for a woman than a man. In most global societies women can get away with not having a career, bei...

If the US were smart they would have left China alone to concentrate their efforts against Russia. They could have potentially wooed China on their side and they might have believed it was in their interests to pivot to US. I use the past tense because that ship has sailed. The idiocy of Trump`s ant...

Terrible by order of magnitude worse than in the west. I`ve been to several of these countries in S America, Asia & Egypt It’s not hard to see why. There are usually no gov help no welfare benefits given. You’re on your own Most people are poor, they have large families. Their families replace t...

Neurodiversity paradigm is outside of science so why would science recognize her any more than they recognize The Bible or Adam and Eve? She is a sociologist. It is valid for sociologists to study how society treats disabled people, and to study political movements to change this. The article contr...

not sure what you mean by this give an example Things like stop any stimming or make the "proper" amount of eye contact, not react to overstimulation when NTs aren't overstimulated (I have very low threshold for pain from noise so this one is from my personal experience). Generally, ignor...

From what I know: ABA is just a method of training. It can be employed for teaching something useful and that's okay. The problem is, it's commonly used with a goal of making one "indistinguishable from their peers" - which means forcing one to supress expression their needs and feelings ...

Autistic, can’t socialize, not human, will never achieve the dreams you have for them etc, etc. Autism is one condition but an umbrella term so for some more disabled autistic kids the parents will be quite rightly wanting to treat their autism. Those with milder symptoms are likely to be diagnosed...

Politicians are great talkers and can come back quickly with any lying answer to a question.

They are also some of the most dumbest people around. :D

Polish media say counter-offensive in Kherson region has started... of course, no details until it's over. They may regain the areas West to Dnipro in this operation - including the biggest city captured after Feb 24. I really hope they succeed without much losses. A tool for tracking wildfires can...

There is no biological marker for autism at present so it’s all down to an assessor asking questions and observing. If your an adult and not diagnosed yet it’s likely you have mild symptoms so opinion will be subjective sometimes. Unless you are needing a diagnosis to unlock help / welfare the doubt...

I took creatine supplement about 15 years back as I was going to the gym and wanted to build muscle. What I never expected within a couple of days my mind was clearer than it ever had been. Vocabulary that were blocked suddenly became unblocked and the brain fog had cleared. I felt I was becoming mo...
