Joseph P replied to asharu's discussion Rape Redefined in the group Feminist Atheists
"There's always a backlash to the backlash to the backlash to the backlash.  It takes at least 100 years to really change anything, particularly with fundamentalist, conservative religions pushing in the opposite direction of any…"

Prog Rock Girl replied to asharu's discussion Nawal El Saadawi: Egypt's radical feminist in the group Feminist Atheists
"Great article. Women's rights in the middle east should be a high priority to feminists. She is very gutsy. I think I'll have to look for her books."

"I'll read the article in the next night or two. Interesting though - I just wrote a short paper for my archaeology class, largely going off on a tangent about assumed gender roles in prehistoric societies. The automatic assumption tends to be…"

asharu replied to Amy's discussion Americanized FGM? in the group Feminist Atheists
"This has been going on since the 50's- At one point it was even done without legally needing to inform the parents- it was viewed that it would distress them too much. The book 'Woman' by Natalie Angier touches on this in more detail.…"

Male and female ability differences down to socialisation, not genetics

asharu replied to Фелч Гроган's discussion Misogyny, moderation, tiny squealing violins
"no misogyny means the hatred of women...which always seems to lead to the lack of equality just like saturated fat isn't heart disease but does a good job of usually causing the latter. and let's not go with the men are assholes routine…"

asharu replied to Фелч Гроган's discussion Misogyny, moderation, tiny squealing violins
"Self hating women are the worse misogynists. The fact you don't understand that misogyny and misandry are not interchangeable in anyway since all forms of misandry come from a woman who is being oppressed and it's just her way of lashing…"
