I've just re-read the article and it doesn't come across as particularly reactionary to me. I don't think that "culture" is something that we should put on a pedestal and respect unconditionally, but...

Sorry this is a bit late and the thread has moved on a bit since this post, but I wanted to respond anyway.

Since patriarchy affects men negatively too (albeit to a lesser degree) it makes sense for men to support the goals of feminism. Although I think that the struggle against patriarchy should be led by...

I think actually the more privileged you are in society, the less likely you are to notice the gross injustices all around you. You say that you know women with PhD's who are sexist - well, perhaps...

Okay, I'm going to issue a verbal warning to Thrasymachus for prejudiced language. Both "mulatto" and "Mahometan" are obsolete words which have been rejected by the people they're supposed to...

I always find it very unconvincing when leaders of far-right groups leave and claim that they're upset by the number of racists attracted to their group. It's just not fooling anyone - of course a...

Apparently my son is going to get bullied in school if I'm with a woman, therefore it's a bad idea for me to have a girlfriend.

That's far from the worst thing my parents said to me this afternoon.

Right, moved this thread to OI and restricted Patrice O'neal. Not really in the mood to address these frankly stupid, tired "arguments" myself at the moment, so carry on folks.

I know that... However, I don't see the harm in advocating for veganism now. It could only make an animal-friendly post-revolutionary society easier to create.

What are you eating? 3

The old thread (http://www.revleft.com/vb/you-eating-2-p2774216/index.html#post2774216) was over 800 posts so here's a new one.

I just finished eating falafel and tabbouleh (yes, for breakfast).
