    Of course they should. If they're not PMSing, women can be just as rational as men.

    'Tired old thing' - I like that Yes - that's how some things get. But I don't know . . . You seemed to cover all I might have said if I cared to engage him on the issue.

    But here - just for you, Nitro. . . Peter - you're wrong and you don't speak for me. Now stop.

Serving in the military doesnt make you any more informed than the guy who works in an office 9-5, its not like we sat down and had long discussions about how a certain party would affect our tour etc. We just put our heads down and did whatever we were ordered too.
    Military service has to do with social cohesion and national identity, not political IQ.

    Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. Maybe they're afraid to, maybe they're too tired that day, or maybe someone else already has.

    So you think that homophobia would be as diminished as it is today if other straight people wouldn't have spoken out in droves, and encouraged others to do so as well? You think it would have made just as much impact if straight people had kept quiet, and it had been only gay people telling homophobes that they're wrong?

    Do you think that it wasn't necessary for men to speak out against sexism in the fight for womens rights? Do you think women would have made the same progress if it had been only women addressing the sexism against them?

    I mean, I realize that sexism against men is a tiny problem by comparison. Don't get me wrong. But to say that it doesn't matter if women speak out against it is just wrong. This guy thinks he speaks on your behalf. Tell him he doesn't! Again, it's not gonna mean much coming from me.

    Anyway, I'll stop now.
    I do that all the time here and elsewhere. Do I have to do it every single day? I don't even do that for the ladies. I'm one person. I get tired, other people get there first, etc. It's nice that that takes a little of the burden off me.

    I am not going to simply echo your posts for no reason. You've done it already. Stop crying.

    But for the record, I think you're wrong. I think female issues are still more visible, but male issues are for more insidious and harmful.

    It's not about letting people choose to belong or not belong, it's about who actually does choose to belong.

    If the only reason you don't own a gun is simply because you just choose not to, pure preference, this means you just choose to let others force their way on you. That is an unhealthy state of mind which shouldn't have any power to set public policy.

    Oh - I have to do this because every time I see this thread scroll up I think of Henry . . . and this thread needs some levity.

    So you're not in favor of individuality and freedom, then.
