S. as per your previous post; I wouldn't stay up to late waiting for an answer.
And even if you do get an answer; be sure to factor in a grain of salt.

Wasn't it a glorious day in the Rockies?

I'm very patient

and yes - so beautiful here it made my head hurt just contemplating it

but of course, this is all off topic

so, guess I'll just say this:

complaining is what made this country what it is today

good and bad - but mostly good

whiners of the world - unite

I prefer malcontent and iconoclast rather than whiner. I suppose that's my Texan arrogance and rationalization kicking into high gear.

Hey, cutie...can I buy u a drink over at Lounge Noir?

I use the word whiner here with humor, affection - and respect

but, point taken

:-)

(I kinda dig iconoclast too)

and she's off...

That was answered in the main thread. Nothing happens that we don't all run across each other.

was it answered by you? I can't find it

it's a fair question I think



Fair enough but you seem to be misunderstanding some fundamental principles of feminism. Not necessarily your fault since many, including some women as well, sometimes misunderstand the core issue that lies at the heart of feminism. Especially when programmed with the stereotypical nature of the bra-burning, how dare you acknowledge my attractiveness, I have to act like a man to get respect caricature that the feminist movement is made out to be.


I thought this was interesting (and funny) which is why I asked the original question - last page

you seem to think you have a pretty good handle on what feminism should or shouldn't be

you and I are absolutely entitled to express our femininity and sexuality any way we want to - I couldn't agree more

I'm not a feminazi - and I missed out on the whole bra burning thing by a few years - though I think I might have enjoyed that

I like watching flames (that might be about something else...)

my point is - and I do have one - it should have been your choice. That's all

I don't see where you actually said it was

there's a real reason why this rubbed some people the wrong way - it's not just meaningless whining

it has nothing to do with you - or Asala - or anyone involved with producing the program

there's nothing wrong with being attractive - it would be ridiculous to say there is. There's also nothing wrong with packaging it and using it as a tool to sell a product

this is America for heaven's sake

I read some of the complaints made by some of the men as a feeling of betrayal - perhaps they feel somewhat insulted. They take this subject matter seriously - and maybe see that they're being treated like rubes by a site they respect.

Very few women complained. I understand the point of view of those that did. I believe you do as well - even if you don't really agree with it

it doesn't matter - the only reason this interests me at all is - you've made some strong statements about what is and isn't feminism

with all the issues surrounding the words chicks, hottie, etc., I wonder - would you have chosen those same words if it were up to you?

I realize you can't really answer that

but I had to ask

That's it? where is the rest?
I hate when pages get torn out of books!

So then I must summarize for myself and say that although no one can be summed up by one word, Ashley D is labeled a hottie at ATS by ATS, and is okay with that label, and there are people on ATS who are labeled complainers.... also one word. Although in the last thread about "labels", we were called whiners. And some of us are not ok with that label, nor any of the others we were called. And so it is.

I am so sorry that as of late I fit into this category . I have been encouraged to search the archives. In searching I came across this thread. It seemed relevant to what has been being discussed.
