Re: 1 in 6 female Australian students raped

I'll never understand people who think emotion and compassion somehow undercut logic, as if the two can never act in parallel, and the results of applying one can never approximate the results of applying the other. Is it that they stopped attending philosophy class once they hit Cartesian dualism? ...

Re: 1 in 6 female Australian students raped

If anyone in here has ever wondered why women seem so gosh-darned hard to talk to, the answer might be that you're a raging misogynist. Hope that helps!!

No, this would be something more like the Old Spice guy showing up at a con wearing Uhura's earpiece, black bellbottom pants, and no shirt. “Hello, nerds, look at your fullsize anime body pillow, now back to me, now back at your fullsize anime body pillow, now back to me.

The post also points out some possible problems, like the fact that the women on the show are all thin, pretty and white, and that Buffy gets into an abusive relationship with Spike, who tries to rape her at one point. The author acknowledges the problems but comes down firmly in Buffy's favor. Not...

I don't think either you or Courtney have ever actually attended a cosplay event. Men do dress up sexy to attract female attention.

Of course, this leads to the problem that geek culture and media are A) not as far from mainstream media in their depictions of women and minorities, thus imploding the myth of geek specialness, and B) racist or sexist in some ways. So he gets defensive, and he blames women for this, validating the...

I hate these movies. Not because they "rape my childhood" (I never liked Yogi Bear to begin with, and even if I did, it's not like the existence of a bad movie would make the cartoons go away). I hate them because I love movies, and little kids and their families deserve good movies just as much as...

Re: Gone vegetarian! Advice needed!

On the question of faux meat, I have a penchant for Lightlife's tenders and sausage substitutes. Caloric value varies a lot, so watch that even if you're getting what appears to be a very similar product.

Re: Gone vegetarian! Advice needed!

I eat a great deal of faux meat. Mimic chicken tenders tend to be good, as well as sausage, but not bacon so much. Find a way that you enjoy soy, since it really is a useful addition to one's diet. Quinoa is a grain I recommend because it is both nutritious and tasty. Take a vitamin supplement; it c...

If you don't mind me saying so, I think you need to read more radical feminist literature and operate less on caricatures from popular media. There was plenty of "far out" rhetoric being created in that era, but it's something I'm not getting the impression you wholly understand. I honestly think th...

Didn't like Stardust at all. LOTR was very well-done, though. However, I think Pan's Labyrinth was probably the best.

Coraline is an honorable mention.

Without a doubt, I am Sam, my most loathed movie in the history of ever. It has Dakota Fanning being a little weird shit and Sean Penn as a very convincing retard. If eugenics kicks up again, I'm blaming this movie.

I don't know why they're remaking Clash of the Titans. The original version can't be bested. That owl is fabulous.
