    At least things have improved, and we can say that we are at least on the right path. Being a chauvinist is something that is generally looked down upon, while it used to be an accepted fact that women just weren't as important as men. (Still is, in many countries.) I'd be scared to have a child today. He would have access to the most grotesque and degrading pornography 24/7 from a very early age, and I don't think that's a healthy thing, at all. It impacts the way people view women, even if people are convinced it doesn't. At least that's what I think. I'm sure there are some positive aspects to it as well, like someone who's sexually frustrated who will watch porn instead of going out and raping someone.

    I never felt that you were being brutish in the slightest. I've had my share of bad experiences with it too, so I know where you're coming from. It's often more trouble than it's worth, especially on the internet, where it's harder to clarify things on the spot, and all tone and personality is stripped from the conversation.

    That's awesome, Makoto is a lot of fun. Then again, most of them are. For me it's not a trouble of coming back, at least not with these series, it's the trouble of waiting for it. One twenty minute episode a week, it simply does not suffice! Of course, it's a lot worse with plot-heavy shows usually. Working and Idolmaster are actually quite good choices for weekly viewings, but I still find the wait unbearable at times.

    It's a weird thing, the development of female rights. Rape is still common, various degrading stereotypes are still common, yet women live longer on average, are getting better educations on average, as well as better grades. I don't quite know what to make of it. Drifting into yet another controversial topic, I think that pornography is moving in exactly the opposite direction of society in general; becoming more and more degrading to women. I don't know if that's fulfilling some perverse urge to still feel dominant for men who no longer feel in control, but it's a disturbing development regardless. I don't think the amount of it being consumed can possibly be healthy either, I remember hearing that an average man watches like 60 clips a week or something. (Yeah, not very precise, it was a TED talk that I can't remember the name of.)

    I'll be honest, I wrote up a long response to this part, but I scrapped it. I think we're just coming at this from different angles. However, I also think that we largely agree that people should respect other people's opinions/beliefs and that when they don't; that's when trouble sets in. I'm actively interested in the religious debate and have been for many years, while you don't find it that fruitful, and that's completely cool. There are countless other things to talk about.

    Awesome. Feels like it's been more than a week since the last episode. Sometimes I just want to stop watching ongoing stuff completely, it can be such a pain.

    Ah, yes, but then we're speaking about two different kinds of mistreatment. There's being an abusive asshole, which is obviously bad, and then there's women not having the same rights and men and basically being the property of men in marriage, which is a lot worse and has been the case until fairly recent history. Although this is over as a matter of fact, the attitudes still remain in many, which leads to the sort of behavior you're referring to.

    I'll just stop talking, then.

    I can agree with that. Like so many other groups, women have been mistreated throughout history, and it might be the greatest injustice done to any group, because of the sheer numbers involved. Probably the only systematically mistreated group that you can't call a minority. (Well, unless you count "poor people" or "farmers" etc.)

    I don't really want to get into it, as it always leads to trouble, but the continued resistance to equality to the sexes is one of the many, many reasons I'm not fond of religions, Abrahamic ones in particular.

    I agree, he wasn't very progressive on the feminism side, that's outdated for sure. He's someone I take things away from, not someone whose entire life-work I can agree with, or even like. If you're sensitive about the religion issue, which is perfectly natural; most people are, I'm just going to leave that one as is; no reason to rock the boat.

    I was just sayin', I'm not a disastrous cook or anything.... though accidents do happen. :P

    Sure, differences in philosophy I suppose. I think a good deal of the negative observations he makes on (human) nature happen to be true, or at least have a lot of truth in them. I take some positive things away from it (like free inquiry, individualism and self-reliance, but he is undeniably very gloomy in many of his perspectives.

    Hopefully... you never know, maybe I burn everything. I spilled boiling water all over my leg and foot earlier this week. >-<

    I love Nietzsche, but unfortunately he's one of those people pretentious people like to just scam through and quote to pretend to be smart and philosophical. :P He's a great thinker, though, and ravishingly intelligent. I got "Also Sprach Zarathustra" on my shelf.

    That does sound pretty damn delicious, man. Those crab cakes struck a cord with me. They would go well with some vanilla coke. Another 40 minutes left. >-<

    People say a lot of things are dead. Usually it's a huge over-statement. Nietzsche being the most infamous example.

    I go to 7-11 sometimes, when I'm just out with friends and need a soda or something, some pastries or whatever. And sometimes when I want a vanilla coke... :P

    By the way, I don't think I could get any more hungry at this point, so feel free to tell me. :P

    I know...*sigh* But I guess its just more to look forward to next weekend.

    Thats Disgaea for you. I put in a good amount of time in the DS version to get Plenair up to Lv.8000-ish equipped with the Yoshitsuna and Super Robot Suit x 3. Not far enough to kill Prinny Baal with one hit but strong enough to take him down alone. Muwahaha~

    It actually wasnt my original goal. I was originally going for a PS3 and a new HD TV but I didnt get that far. But yeah, if I didnt set a goal, to treat myself, then I'd just lose my mind.

    Words of wisdom, man... words. of. wisdom.

    I like old-fashioned chivalry. Some might see it as somewhat contrary to modern feminism, but I think that we can leave the chauvinistic aspects of it behind and still keep the good bits.

    7-11 sucks. Insanely expensive, and the incredibly unhealthy and costly food isn't even tasty. That's just bad. No real groceries to speak of... a frozen pizza, but I want a real meal. Less than 2 hours until the first grocery-store opens. I'll buy myself some egg, bacon and vegetables then and make myself a meal. If only I can endure. >-<
