Really?:
The casual mysogyny of some of the commenters here is pathetic. The irony that, on a site that exists to make fun of people's broken code, your broken personality is the real WTF.
I don't hate all women, just the ones who think three nights in bed is worth a lifetime of slavery.

So, yeah, pretty much all of them.

Perhaps you're right. Perhaps I misinterpreted all those comments about strippers, prostitutes and all women being money-grabbing shrews controlled by their menstrual cycle as a subtle reminder of the differences between the sexes.

Or perhaps you're just trying to distract attention from the mysogyny above by changing the subject.

This is the point where you start taking about political correctness run amok. Go on.
And yet you continue to read and respond....interesting.

The real irony is people think it is wrong when we think of anyone as anything other than equals. Nobody is equal and being equal is not the point, having equal opportunity is.
There are leaders, there are followers, some people are stronger, some people are smarter, etc.

We are NOT equals, we are complimentary, and what is more complimentary then the non-equality of men and women. Give equal opportunity for each to thrive in thier strengths but do not try to make everyone equally the same.


"Equality" not same as "Identical"

I don't understand. What sexist comments have been made on this thread? I understand "sexism" to mean discriminating against or demeaning another person on the basis of their sex.

There have certainly been other threads on this forum where men made denigrating comments about women, but I don't recall any on this thread.

There have been posts here that claim that men and women are different. You agree that this is true.

There have been posts that say that some women will engage in sexual relations in exchange for very small amounts of money or other consideration from a man. You can't seriously tell me that you doubt that this is true.

There have been posts that say that divorce is very expensive. If you doubt this, do some research on lawyers' fees, divorce settlement laws, alimony and child support.

There was my post attempting to whimsically illustrate that in modern America, anyway, women no longer promise much when they enter a marriage, while they make large demands from men. If you don't believe that is true, please tell me exactly what a woman promises today when she gets married. Consider both what she is legally bound to do, as well as things that are not legally binding but which would subject her to social stigma if she failed to fulfill. Compare those to the commitments a man makes when he gets married.

What was said here that is not, (a) obviously and provably true? and (b) insulting to women?

I was disturbed by the raw bytes FTP handling (See RETR "retrieve" command). This guy had an e-mail account on disk somewhere, and read that via FTP to his processor.

So now we know how to phish "Lee S." -- and get her to meet up for "coffee" -- just promise $100 if she'll run this innocent bit of code.

Somehow, based on everything I've read, I thought it would be a lot more difficult to meet girls.
Observe and learn, my young friend. Girls will do amazing things for very small rewards. A string of beads costs less than $5. Even a single dollar bill can get you a little sumpn at the strip club.

It's the totally free ride that they resist with so much vigor.


Careful though, it only costs hundreds to get them. It costs tens of thousand to make them go away.

Hah! Maybe for you losers ...
I'm sure we all understand that you can make women go away for free, Matt.

I make money on it. For a modest sum (a few grand a year) I will pretend to be your friend. The woman you want to go away will consequently leave of her own accord, and may indeed pay *you* to allow her the privilege. Nice work if you can get it. Let me lick your ear.

It's no worse than how men are routinely portrayed in prime-time television and in many commercials. In any case, there are actual problems that these comments are alluding to, and the real fallout of the political correctness is that because men aren't allowed to voice their grievances in public, society hasn't addressed these problems.

Women are supposed to be the listening, diplomatic ones, and they have utterly failed at that role. They just wonder why it's so hard to find decent men and conclude that we're fundamentally awful, and meanwhile since they won't listen and we can lose our jobs if we raise our voices, we've simply decided the hell with marriage.

I don't understand. What sexist comments have been made on this thread?

The ones on the first page implying that marriage is defined to be the man going out and working and giving money to his freeloader wife in exchange for the promise of food and sex. I'd argue that's pretty sexist, though about equally to -both- parties involved... since on the male side, generally speaking, these days people marry because they love each other, not because the girl wants the guy's money and the guy wants sex. If that's the way you think about marriage, it's probably best if you stay single. On the flip side, these days, I hear there are females who actually have jobs and things. My girlfriend actually makes (a little) more than I do, so if we were hypothetically to get married, my economic status would actually -improve- as a result of it. (Or at least, it would if we weren't screwed by that crazy beast, the marriage penalty. Which I haven't done that much research on, given that marriage is not exactly happening right away, but that is not my point, anyway.)

These days, I imagine generally speaking if one party in the marriage isn't working, it's probably to take care of the kids, in which case I ask: how much would a 24/7 babysitter who is never going to quit or go on vacation cost?
