    It is so nice to know that you occasionally rein in your extreme hatred of women for those who don't mind it too much that you do.

    In my world, intelligent and conformist is hardly any better than unintelligent and conformist. Give me intelligent and original any day.
    Yeah, it may be that my definition of intelligence is different from that of the majority. To me, intelligence requires a certain level of creativity, and expression in unconventional thought. You and I probably agree on the concept.

    Personally, I don't care much how smart they seem - I care how they treat others.

    If they treat others badly, I will often dive in and try to let them have it.

    If they treat others well - I will treat them well.

    I don't CARE how intelligent they seem. I respond differently to someone who expresses themselves well, and thoughtfully, as opposed to someone who seems to have automatic knee-jerk responses to various subjects. That was my point.

    You don't worry about the reason for the response, only the response itself?

    Take a poster who brags about liking to beat up women, for instance. If people get in his face because of it, are they the ones who are really behaving badly?

    Oh sweetie, do you really think so? That just seems like so silly I treat all people with the love and respect they deserve!

    No way, that's ****ing bull****. That's the most unbelievable crap I've ever heard.

    It's not a hatred of women... It's a hatred of anyone who dies not know and accept their place in the world.

    The problem with your comment is: "Know and accept their place in the world."

    Who defines the meaning of "their place in the world"?
