And I think enough freedom. With an important constraint: respect each other and let each other in their value. For me it's important... that we can dress what we like. For me is my way of dressing myself a kind of expression. In stead of saying: I'm a man in skirt... I rather say I wear what I like to wear(-movement). ;)


You are like me, a "first wave" feminist. Fairness. Equality. I wish feminism today was actually about that too.

Here's the button I wore in a recent Pride parade (walking with the Canadian Association for Equality)

Daryl wrote:"Conservatism", "liberalism", "socialism", "progressivism", "libertarianism", etctetera are all now more identities than philosophies, and they are used opportunistically by political activists who understand that identity is a stronger motivator than reason and goodwill.

Even kindness and respect aren't enough anymore. Ask any activist and you'll be told that your unconscious biases are what make you the oppressor. We are always the enemy when political and social opportunism runs the world.


Well said Daryl!

@Daryl.

Yes... I changed the diapers. I help with the household. I can cook. I make every morning breakfast. I bring my daughter to school. And I'm often at home, when she comes from school.... because I'm working a lot of time at home. ;)

For years now, it's just been nothing but Pawn Stars and American Pickers. I can't remember the last time I tuned the channel. And yes, I could care less about TV these days. About the only thing I like to watch is my Star Trek TNG series which I have on DVD, all seven seasons.


Wow! Our views of the History Channel and current TV viewings are so similar it is almost alarming. However, I watch Star Trek Deep Space Nine rather than Star Trek the Next Generation as it has a story line from Season one through Season seven.

But yes, I also watch very little television.

The TV is always on in my house. There's something nice about having Stargate SG1 repeats repeating 3 times every day.

I was/am a big fan of all the Star Treks except "Enterprise" which was merely okay IMO. One perhaps little known fact is that the creator of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica wrote many of the episodes for "Deep Space Nine", during the war with The Dominion in particular. You can see the same (awesome) dramatic sense in both.
