    I didn't deny any of that.
    You should read some history. Women didn't have those rights until recently.
    The same for other minorities.
    I have agreed that things need to improve on all those fronts. We just have a different opinion on how to do that.
    Our end goals are too similar. Save you angst for those that don't have the same goal.

    You lack the will and desire to confront those that continue to drag society back to it's more regressive roots, that much is evident in your willingness to still vote for the GOP, even in minor races nor is it a difference of "opinion" it's a difference of material action.

    I don't care WHY you'd ever vote for the GOP in any context, I care that you DO it and you cannot do that without harming minorities and women fullstop and even when it's pointed out to you, you chafe, you complain, you feel it's unfair and you pushback because you still believe that the actions you take can be divorced from the overall conversation. You talk the talk but your actions are not consistant with what you preach and that's fine, but don't expect me to not excoriate you for being willing to throw others under the bus when it's conveniant.

    You need to let go of your hatred. White cis males get to speak too and deserve respect like everyone else. I always have a problem with people making blanket statements about any group of people. It shows a complete lack of understanding and it's discriminatory. You seem to like to frame everything as an us vs them situation. Well, it's not. At least I hope so because there's a whole lot more of them than there is of us for starters. Secondly, "if you stare into the abyss, it stares back at you."

    For argument sake, even if there isn't, why discriminate like that?

    The reality is that minorities ARE and historically have been oppressed by a cis white male hegemony.

    Society already respects them; their opinions are considered valid and even sought after, regardless of whether their views are appropriate or not.

    I'll stop holding a grudge against that group when a sizeable number of them stop doing their damnest to make my life harder then it already is; be it through personal interaction or through political means.

    If viewed as a block, yes. But in practice there is only a tiny minority of "cis white male" people who can be said to have any kind of privilege.

    I propose we digitally lynch the LIAR @Takhisis for broken promises. Where is your picture boo?

    I can't speak for Europe but in the US being a cis white male has a ton of inherent privilege. You can see it in everyday life if you look for it.

    I haven't lied, I just didn't state when and I only found one of the danged files yesterday. But since I found a story or two which I want to publish in the mix, I'd rather upload everything in one go. btw I'm not subscribing to this thread, there's too much reading to do and I'd rather play videogames.

    That is certain given that in most euro countries "cis white male" are almost 50% of the population ^_^

    Then again, in CFC civ white male should be at least 85%.

    I realise that the UK is perhaps more ethnically mixed than many other European nations, but are you really saying that there are so few non-Caucasians in most of Europe that "cis white male" is almost indistinguishable from all males of that country?
