Re: The Problem for Men is Other Men

You can't make a definition? Interesting.

FYI, I'm speaking English as a native.

Re: still lucid

There is still time for women to attain the ethical excellence of men, you included. I hope I have encouraged you in that.

Re: still lucid

Sorry, no fallacy. Just an inference that you don't find appealing.

I'm still hoping you'll show you're an adult and take responsibility for something on your own. Don't bother responding, though,...

Re: The Problem for Men is Other Men

It's strange, because none of those quotes declare that culture is a male creation. In fact, the first quote can easily be read in the opposite way.

Does he say that men compete with each other?...

still lucid

You conceded the majority of my argument when you asked to talk about voting strength and longevity; to your credit, you didn't bother arguing my easy points. Now you allow us to infer that you lack...

Re: The Problem for Men is Other Men

Here is that fallacy again. Baumeister sees everyone as creating our social structures and practices. Even women participate in that, believe it or not. In your mind, human culture is solely...

Re: continued confusion of unrelated issues

Instead of having you dive deeper into your responsibility denial, I think it would be more productive for you to take responsibility for advocating a really important corrective where one is needed....

Re: continued confusion of unrelated issues

That's right. You'll agree to anything but that women have some responsibility.

ever the optimist

You're not going to admit the moral failing of your lack of sympathy here, but it speaks for itself. Next time perhaps you will do better. Men have done it and women are capable of that degree of...

Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

I'm glad to see we're in agreement on this.

Did you also describe the antecedent post as a mixture of rants and autobiography? If you didn't, perhaps you missed part of my meaning.

Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

Yes, it is a sin to be hostile to poor ideas and weak thinking, isn't it. Even worse when you're challenging sacred cows.

So let's compare: I countered the mistakes I saw in Wonderment's post...

Deja fait, monsieur!

I'm very amused that you'd get into your ad hominem foolishness with me, when I simply countered the one-sided portrait that Wonderment tried to pass off. You can't bear a...

Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

The data are the existence of the disparities. Or are you claiming that women have had no hand in creating the conditions under which we live? I would not be surprised that you would not feel any...

Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

Women are responsible for nothing and men for everything? I've heard that before. I think we all know the ideology: when women are on the short end, society is to blame and when men are down, it's...

Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

Do you doubt seriously that women are getting more education, votes, longevity, inheritance, and family planning control? Tell me which one you doubt the most and I'll datafy you.

Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

Presumably we are talking about our own culture, where women have all the privileges I mentioned. Thanks to men (yes, men acted honorably for the sake of equality), we have the laws on the books to...

Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

Strange response, Jeff! You're so steeped in ideology that your response to disconfirming facts is ad hominem tripe? Seems so, but why don't you take another stab at it: interlocute with me and we...

Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

Women have advantages of education, longevity, inheritance, votes, and family planning.

You're right, men can't come close to matching those advantages.

What we're seeing with you is an elite...

Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

Men still work longer hours for the sake of their families.
Women are still legally granted all the family planning decisions -- even after marriage!
Women still file false harrassment charges....

Re: How to Fix Our Failing Election System (Jack Balkin & Heather Gerken)

1. The problems are not trivial. I would add the difficulties faced by third parties and the undemocratic construction of the Senate. If we saw these problems arise in other countries, we would have...

I take it from your response that you concede my point. No other right is taken away after the completion of the sentence. We are in agreement.

Re: How to Fix Our Failing Election System (Jack Balkin & Heather Gerken)

Why is it outlandish to recognize that we conduct poor elections? Isn't that a sort of fundamental step to seeing how they should be improved? Or should we heap flattery on ourselves despite our poor...
