Frink, don’t be an ass.

As soon as Warbler admits he doesn’t know jack shit about women I’ll stop “being an ass.” Saying that no women like Star Wars is disgusting and offensive.

“A woman’s body isn’t treated as anymore obscene than a man’s.”
“Tell that to the top half of a woman’s body.”

How is this a confusing or controversial response? Is it wrong? Men can walk around without a shirt, women can’t.

female breasts = private part private parts need to be covered up.

But why? You refuse to answer that question.

Why does the question need to be answered? American culture equates female breasts as being private parts.

Demanding the answer to “Why?” is as good as asking “Why not?”

American culture, like all other cultures, is pretty dumb. Who cares what it equates?

My point, AGAIN, is no one is making any objective argument as to why women are harmed or oppressed in any way by wearing bras or bikini tops when and where men are not required to.

Who the hell cares about whether’s there an objective argument? Seems freaking pointless to me.

I see you’ve met this thread.

Warbler, if you’re gonna keep saying demonstrably false things about what women like and don’t like, I’m gonna keep insisting you don’t actually know any women.

You know, I’m starting to think this thread was a better idea than y’all said it was.

Because it somehow helped?

Not that I can see.

It could have helped.

By getting more diverse people to join the forum?

The thread could have diagnosed the problems that are getting more diverse people to not join the forum, and therefore, put the structures in place that would help more of them join the forum.

And as I said, discussions about diversity are useful. It raises awareness about the issue, which is important.

Its a Star Wars forum. Its not going to attract women.

That’s a problem.

Its a problem a that this place is a Star Wars forum or that Star Wars just doesn’t attract women?

The latter.

That “problem” goes beyond the scope of just this forum. It not going to change anytime soon. Men and women just like to watch different kinds of movies/tv shows.

Warbler.

With that said, I don’t think women everywhere should suddenly go topless.

sexist! How dare you suggest we should continue this oppression of women!

You’re making absolutely no sense now.

I don’t? But I thought it was sexist and oppressive to make women cover up their breasts?

Gosh, you always find a way to colossally muss the point.

This might be sexist but I can’t actually tell.

There is a particular male-centered-ness to Warbler’s and chyron’s arguments. Why does the male body have to be the standard that we measure women against?

It’s not unreasonable.

No its ridiculous. I am not using the male body as the standard that we measure women against. There is nothing male-centered about my argument.

You are saying that the female body is different than the male body. You are comparing it to the male body. Your argument is male-centered.

He is male. He is speaking from a male’s point of view. Of course he is going to center his argument on and derive opinion from his personal life experience. Calling him out on it serves no purpose them to presume the male opinion on a somewhat female issue inherently has less merit.

Be that as it may be, Warb just said his argument is not male-centered, so which is it?

No offense but do you actually know any women? This is extremely ignorant.

You called me out, and you are 100% right. I am wrong right here. I think I read or interpreted that question wrong. I think it’s bad that this forum does not attract women. There are also deeper societal reasons as to why this is the case.

I am sorry for my accidental ignorance in this situation. People must always acknowledge when they are wrong. Again, sorry.

Thank you. As I edited in above, the attitudes some display here (not you, you erred and apologized, which I appreciate, though obviously I don’t speak for women) both in off-topic and outside of it, are not exactly welcoming to women.

I’m not even going to read any farther to see if anyone else responded yet.

What the fuck, man?

I know right? What about the women that are on the forum? Also, I’m pretty sure there’re a lot of women on the Force dot net.

Every female in my house (at last count four, including the dog) loves Star Wars.

And yes, what about Mark’s Down. Or twister (before she left). Or Mala. Or Molly. Or Mielr (can’t remember her actual username, I’m sure that’s way off). Or all the others I’m forgetting.

But with some of the attitudes here (including in non-off-topic areas, see Mary Sue arguments) it’s not surprising most wouldn’t want to post.

Frink, you wouldn’t have any issue if your wife or daughter walked around topless?

Nowhere did I say I think women should walk around topless.

You sure seemed to be implying it. Why shouldn’t women walk around topless if men can? You should tell your female family members to do so, you don’t want to oppress them do you?

I merely disputed Warb’s assertion that men’s and women’s bodies are treated equally.

They are treated equally, they just have different private parts.

Jesus Christ, this is so goddamn stupid it makes me want to throw my computer into a volcano. Women’s breasts and men’s breasts are not treated equal. I’ve said so like eight times and you keep fucking either not getting it or ignoring it. That’s all I ever said.

I give up. I refuse to respond to any more of your posts on this topic.

No, although I’m still reasonably convinced he’s a she, Master.

Also, no, although I am avoiding that thread until I finish the new season.
