Quote# 89324

The sought-after equality is gone, because the inequality is now enshrined as a matter of law, namely, sexual harassment law.

If women could compete equally with men in affairs of business, there would be no need of such laws: but the masculine psychology (which is as predatory and lusty as it was in the days when Achilles and Agamemnon quarreled over who should possess the slave-girl Chrysies) makes civilized behavior with women impossible: until and unless the rules and customs of civilization, the boundaries and sanctuaries evolved over centuries, are allow to check the reckless impulses.

So, you're saying men are douches because SCIENCE?

Speak for yourself.

If YOU are incapable of living in civilized society, go find a place of your liking somewhere else.

According to your screed, civilized behavior is impossible for men, period. You seem to be more of a man-hater than any feminist dared to be.

Maybe the problem isn't women, or men, or the law. Maybe the problem is you John.

Some of us can control our impulses, you know. And most of us don't see women as "prey".

Who's seen "Troy" then?

Is this supposed to be a slam against women or a slam against men?

No. YOUR delusion-fueled view of masculinity makes YOUR civilized behavior with women impossible. Shut up and behave yourself.

You lost the thread of whatever you were trying to express, and now the Minotaur will eat you.

So you admit to having a preadatory psychology. But not all men do. Also self control. If you don't have it, it's on you

Sounds like you're not ready for civilized society, John. The men I've known and worked with managed to control their predatory, lusty, reckless impulses and behave themselves among women.

My one workplace harrassment incident happened when a former male friend spit on my shoe after losing an argument. My male boss went apeshit over that and we had a big harrassment incident kerfuffle. I declined to press any charges, so the company instituted a series of sexual harrassment seminars. The Anglo idiot who started it all was VERY popular among his Hispanic co-workers, mostly ex-convicts on work parole.

Women can compete equally with men in affairs of business when both genders act like professionals. It's a sad testimony to idiots on both sides that we have sexual harrassment law today.

Sounds like John has a lot of unresolved rage towards.....well John.

Oh My Dog!

In Johns ideal world, women would have to wear burqas and live in separate cities.

Oh wait, such a world exists! it's called Saudi Arabia.

Move to Saudi Arabia, John.

I know you're trying to make some sort of point, John. What it may be eludes me completely.

So you're saying that anyone with a prick IS a prick.

Funny, the only guy who ever tried to give me the whole "men are the helpless victims of their sexual impulses and I should expect to have to push them off me every time they get near me" screed was also the only guy who ever jumped me the minute he got me alone, although I barely knew him.

Like I told him, most men are perectly capable of controlling their impulses. Your problem isn't your gender, it's just YOU.

9/3/2012 1:11:13 PM



<em>: until and unless the rules and customs of civilization, the boundaries and sanctuaries evolved over centuries, are allow to check the reckless impulses.</em>

And sexual harassment law isn't a rule and custom of civilization?

@Fundies Make Me Sick: Both, of course! That's the great thing about sexism. You get a two-for-one deal.

Women are subject to sexual harassment laws, too; as are gays of either sex. Just because the vast majority of sexual harassment charges are against men doesn't mean the law itself is unfair. It just means there are a lot of stupid men who can't control their testosterone at work.

Translation: Women can't do business-y things; men have zero self-control and are horrible rape demons.

Yeah, that sounds way more misandrist than misogynist. Sucks for both genders though.

I don't get it, is this an insane radfem or an MRA nutcase. I honestly can't tell the difference anymore.

Maybe ~you~ are a horny barbarian, but not all of us share that affliction.

Women can't compete equally with men, as more men than women employ people, and people tend to choose people who are similar to themselves. It has been shown that if you remove the gender and skin-tone from job applications, more women and darker-skinned persons will receive job offers. It's not a concious choice, wich makes it harder to do something about it.

Most men are decent people, as long as they have received a decent upbringing.

Like sexual harrassment laws?

Maybe your masculine psychology makes civilized behavior with women impossible, but personally I and most men I know are able to be around women without trying to constantly hump their legs.
