Not fuming, simply laughing at you, :lol: Sorry, didn't realise you were female.


Oh, so when you wrote the following bit earlier, you didn't realize I was female and yet used "she" and "her" thinking I was male?

How pathetic. :lol:


Yeah, pretty pathetic, Jerry!

I wouldn't go that far to use the word "misogynist". It's clear to me some guys in here can't stand a woman who's not dumb.


Let's not over-react about misogyny.

These days, things have gone too far the other way towards misandry. There is so much of it.

Females are still after a level playing field in the work place (which I support) as we are not quite there yet but we have come a long way, but the feminists themselves have become some of the most vindictive "bitches" ever and have free licence to practice misandry. They never get picked up on it either because men are too nice. A male however, who questions a feminists ability, reasoning, or political agenda is regularly slapped for being a misogynist.

Hence divorce is through the roof and the family unit is breaking down in most Western Countries. The authorities seem to always take the side of the female. They invariably end up with custody of children, take the lion share of any finances. An interesting statistic is that suicide is the highest among divorced men who have little or no access to their children. It's through the roof and would normally be called a pandemic. However, the family courts and authorities quash the figures and brush them under the carpet. They suppress it.

Infidelity rates are super high in the Western World, and females are very quick to blame a cheating husband without looking at themselves. There are reasons for everything.

Go figure.

As a modern unbiased individual I’d like to introduce an additional word to the English language to fill in the empty slot between misogyny and misandry …

Was the choice of words "an empty slot" deliberate, do you feel you should rephrase?

Perhaps Jerry was opting for the new Generic feminism where both genders are refered to by the feminine. Increasingly popular in Germany.

Like I said I don't see any of the two here.
What I see a a bunch of male kids playing marbles when the sister of one comes over. The brother turns at her saying "what are you doing here you don't know anything about marbles, go play with your dolls". Some of the rest stand calling her idiot, one says she is the most disgusting marble player he's ever seen but not because of her gender-because she plays tricks etc etc.

But would they have said the same if his brother had come over?
