    The thing is, Jenny, that men can’t necessarily trust women in that situation either. The ideal would be if both parties have their own contraception and are therefore able to manage their own reproductive risks.

    “While MRA’s make a much bigger deal out of this issue than it needs to be, I have known men who have been the victims of intentional “oops” pregnancies. ”

    How is someone intentionally violating one’s reproductive autonomy NOT a big deal? And why shouldn’t everyone be upset about it, MRA or not?

    The existing physical fitness standards in the military are much lower for females than for males. Do you support equalizing those standards to be the same for both sexes? And if so, how would you do it? Lower the male standards, raise the female standards, or perhaps have different standards based on job classification (MOS)?

    I disagree with your defense of a double standard. Instead, I believe the act should be judged for what it was and what its consequences were, regardless of who committed it. Would it be worse if Ronnie hit Sammie as hard as she hit him, inflicting the same amount of hurt? I don’t see why [...]

    This research indicates that much of the hand wringing here is misguided. Well educated and economically successful women are actually marrying more and divorcing less, and their marriage happiness is staying fairly high.

    Recent data indicates that, for the college educated, the institution of marriage may actually have strengthened. It once was the case that college-educated [...]

    Funny, my dating experience was pretty much the mirror of what is described here. The women who were interested in me all earned less money than I did. Those who earned more showed little interest in me. I was glad that I was financially privileged enough so that my dating prospects weren’t too limited. My [...]

    sex-toy-james – I object to your gender stereotyped shaming language. guys who lack the balls to date women who earn more than themselves to man up and not be intimidated by a woman with a more expensive car This type of language is exploiting a gendered stereotype to shame and coerce men to do something they may [...]

    “Most of the major feminist groups here had made a submission, and there was an interesting running theme: in order to achieve equality, Government-funded rape and domestic violence services must only be provided for women, and the Equalities Act must ensure that local goverments direct all their funding to women-only.” This is a good example [...]

    I agree with you about the inappropriateness of the call and the questionable motivations of Virginia Thomas. I was questioning whether it constitutes legally actionable harassment, because no threat was made and it was not a repeated or reoccurring action. Apparently it isn’t, because the WaPo reports that “Law enforcement sources said the FBI is [...]

    I agree that promoting a gender war among children is reprehensible. But the “battle of the sexes” you describe here and in the doublex post seems rather one-sided. Girls are wearing hateful t-shirts that advocate disdain and violence towards boys. But what are the boys’ responses?

    No, I do not agree that this is a false dichotomy. The gains in rights for Afghan women have been enabled by the military occupation of their country by the US and its allies. The experts quoted in these articles expect at some backsliding on these gains when the military occupation ends. So the goals [...]

    I think it is worth pointing out that we are also sacrificing many American lives in this war – 1205 is the latest tally – with a much greater number returning home with horrible wounds to body, mind and spirit. ” Being realistic means that we should we realistically get over the fact that women’s [...]
