Re: Nice article that mentions Skirtcafe favorably

Stu, I can respect your opinion, but would you at least agree that men should be prohibited from going topless then? Because if mandates against topless women is the way it must be, then I personally believe that this should apply to everyone. I'm not so much talking about prohibiting on pain of le...

Re: Nice article that mentions Skirtcafe favorably

To be fair, to my knowledge, there is nowhere in the U.S. where it is forbidden for a man to wear a skirt, even a weird one. Granted, there are plenty of circumstances where it may be inappropriate, but still legal. There is one area where women are not equal in law, and that is when it comes to no...

Re: Wendy Williams backlash over "men in skirts and heels"

Wendy Williams? Never heard of her until reading this thread. If you want to see a really ditzy woman who is unfortunately well known consider Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) who seems to have gotten advice from her inebriated customers when she worked as a bartender. This is prime example of an inf...

Re: Nice article that mentions Skirtcafe favorably

Did you not listen to uncle Al ? Definitely severely off topic. At least start a new thread. I am a new member but I don’t think anyone is doing the forum any favours Thanks for your support Shilo, it is thoughtful and greatfully appreciated by the Admin Staff. To put it quite bluntly - - IF THIS T...

Re: Nice article that mentions Skirtcafe favorably

Stu, thanks for responding. I would like to respond to your points in full, but before I do that, please address all of my points. It might not have been your intention, but you seem to have cherry picked points I have made, and have, in effect, based your rebuttal upon a straw man. The rules of eng...

Re: Nice article that mentions Skirtcafe favorably

I have said before that we do not have any ownership of the pronouns people use with regard to us; the choice of pronouns rests with the speaker and not the referent. But that's true of all descriptive language. You don't have ownership of whether I call you a twat, or not, but it would certainly b...

Re: Nice article that mentions Skirtcafe favorably

I understand the problems with the dog analogy. Let's look at some other human differences, though. Many physical sex differences are on a spectrum, with quite a bit of overlap. Take facial hair. Some guys cannot grow any to save their lives. This is common among men of Asian or native American anc...

Re: Nice article that mentions Skirtcafe favorably

Now I have to wonder, is the brain difference the cause of the gender dysphoria or is the gender dysphoria the cause of the brain difference? According to the article, neither. Rather, it is a function of levels of androgen/estrogen the brain is exposed to during prenatal development. That is to sa...

Re: Nice article that mentions Skirtcafe favorably

Whereas discussions are all about listening to what the each other has to say, internalizing it, and learning from it. And this is why I prefer forums over most other forms of social media, greater chance of a discussion happening! That's true, as long as everybody participating understands the rul...

Re: Nice article that mentions Skirtcafe favorably

Anything that is believed in the face of evidence to the contrary is, in point of fact, the definition of delusion. Hypothetical situation: I was born without my lower legs due to a genetic condition. However, my internal image of myself is that of a person who has lower legs, and it's so troubling...

Re: Nice article that mentions Skirtcafe favorably

Yonkas, as I said, delusional. For the future, you should understand that I (and many other people) find curt ipse-dixit responses that don't address the arguments they are responding to rude. If you didn't wish to engage in an invitation to a discussion, you could have said nothing at all, or, if ...
