At least you didn't lead off with "I disagree with what you have to say, but I defend to the death your right to say it". Dodged a bullet there.I think you owe the board an apology, especially to any women who might be reading these boards but not posting - and with this kind of attitude around, can you blame them?
You assume that there's all these women who want to post on a comic book message board but wouldn't do so because of what I post. Are they such timid creatures? Are they not capable of ignoring, or even addressing what I bring to the table? Are they so desperately in need of Sir Galahad (or Ma'am, if you prefer) to defend them against my
I don't see any problem with the idea that either gender is biologically inferior to the other in the area of science and math, or any other for that matter. But then, I don't get the gitchy feeling about these things.

Yeah, I get homocidal rages over this stuff.
See, there's an argument for biological equality with Fuka! :p *sorry, couldn't resist*Because they never seem to stop at "boys have a penis and girls have a vagina, end of fucking story" they always follow it with trying to "prove" I want a baby (they repulse me) or belong in the home or some crap like that that I don't want to be forced to do. Then I get violent fantasies.
The main issue is what's your stance on women who do
want hubbies and brats? If it's a 'fine, stay at home, raise your kids, keep away from me' attitude, that's perfectly cool. If these women don't bore you or some shit and you can be friends (or at least friendly) with them, even better. Just because, y'know, it's nicer.
These women genuinely love their children, their husbands, their homes, and they are as annoying on the subject as anyone else in love. The thing is some women find great success in deriding being a wife/mother. That's where the "nazi" part comes. Literally in Germany any bully could put on a swastika and have legal sanction for anything, no one could stop them.
'Being a wife and mother is oppressive. If a woman says she enjoys it, she's afraid of her husband or obviously brainwashed, or just not educated/aware enough. Communication becomes one-directional, just like it is with the motherhood-is-sacred group, who can't even proselytize their bitchiness 24/7 like feminists can. Bullies are intolerant of anything that provokes thought. Women who genuinely want to be wives and mothers aren't the best candidates to tell feminists 'fuck off' when they cross the line, and the bullies of both sides shut the men up real well.
There must be lots of women who repeated words and copied feminists because it worked, not because they really believed in it, but more like memorizing stuff to pass a test and use when needed. It got those women what they wanted (like a guy pretending to be sensitive) as successfully as anything else so they stuck with it. If copying feminists stops working, they'll look for a different method to get what they want, and leave the feminists high and dry.
The pay scale is equal, a woman earns as much as a man for the work she does, but women collectively make choices that lead them to earn less (and for some reason people tally up what groups earn
) Most women do end up getting married and having kids, so the stereotype may bother you but it is close enough to accurate that it gets hung on anyway (like being a white male). A bully who gets what he or she wants will want more. You don't get to be a bully by taking positions everybody agrees with, you take positions they don't want and force them to go along. Notice how the demand for 50% female faculty at Harvard immediately followed. Some coincidence, huh?
I have no interest in getting married, but I am reaching the age where a cook and a maid sounds nice. But I don't make enough money to pay for one. Getting a wife to do it would be just as expensive (if not more) one way or another. Like most bachelors I don't eat well or care for cleaning duties. To raise my living standard in those areas would mean raising my ambition to earning more money -- to say nothing of paying for her food/clothes/comfort/consolation/children. It'd be easier to just discipline myself to cook and clean and to hell with the rest.
Men don't care about motherhood or homemaking in the way some guys like sports and some don't. "OK, that's what you're into" and they get along or they don't. A cook and a maid sounds like it would be nice, but it's awfully unfair to expect her to do all that when she comes home from work.
