    No, it's not. You think promoting people based upon merit alone is sexist; you think a person's gender ought to help determine whether or not they are promoted; that makes you a sexist.

    A white male claims to be socially oppressed because, he claims, less qualified blacks and females are being promoted over him simply by virtue of being black and female.
    It happens. Since you're justifying it, you're a sexist.

    I tell him that his attitude and belief system is, in my opinion, sexist, and merits no further response from me, although it might well be valuable to some people (for instance, you).

    You come by and claim that I just stated that even though they're inferior, blacks and females should be promoted over (apparently inherently superior, in your opinion) white males, because they're black and female, and that because I believe this, I'm sexist.

    You're not really smart enough to effectively do what you're trying to do here.
    You shouldn't waste your time.
    Spin is an art form, better left to your intellectual superiors.
    I know what was said and by whom. That's why I've accurately labeled you a sexist.

    You insensitive white male oppressor. Don't you know that you were born with a silver spoon in your ass and that everything you have was the product of systematic racism and oppression?

    If you don't support liberal agendas, then you're just a damned sexist, racist homophobe... : D

    Anyone who wants to hear more of the pathetic lament of the socially-oppressed white males, raise your hand.
    What? There are two of you?
    Well then, in that case- considering the massive interest in this topic- I think you should definitely go start your own thread and tell each other all about it.
    Really let it all hang out.

    The topic of this thread, however, is feminism, and whether it was "bad" for America.

    So, you know.... toodles.

    Anyone else want to hear 1069 argue against her strawmen? Raise you hand...

    What!? There are NONE of you?

    So, 1069, were you going to address what was actually said, or are you just going to remain in your fantasy world?

    I've addressed it all I intend to.
    As I said, the opinions of sexists (and racists, for that matter) hold no interest for me.
    I don't associate with them.
    I was polite enough to make that clear.
    Frolicking at my feet trying to get my attention like two dogs begging for table scraps will avail you nothing.

    Now that what's-her-face is done smacking around her strawmen, perhaps we can return to thread topic without having to suffer her incessant cries of racism and sexism...

    Um, no she didn't. She was merely pointing out that people who use the oppressed white man fallacy are a new type of sexist, racist. It's unpopular to be blatantly sexist, racist, so they have hide their feelings with idiotic rhetoric. (Thats what I got from her statements, if she means different then she may wish to clarify. I don't want to put words in anybody's mouth)

    I don't associate with them. Then you must be a hermit.
    I was polite enough to make that clear. The definition of polite takes on a new meaning.
    Frolicking at my feet trying to get my attention like two dogs begging for table scraps will avail you nothing.I am a man,not a dog, and do not need your attention, again, we are not perfect.
    Worthy of a responses, I think, this poster seems to be "sad". And this from a male chauvinist pig.
