Wilton, I read your response to my post, and while I don't agree with a lot of it, your perspective is always well thought out and interesting.
And in general, since a lot of this thread ended up addressing feminism, though we obviously don't have a consensus on its definition, may I point out that women still make 70 to 80c to a man's dollar. Professions where women have made inroads since the 1970s have seen the wages almost freeze, and in the tech industry, women make 49c to a man's dollar. In fact the tech industry has become such an unfriendly place for women that 20 years ago, 40% of college degrees that were tech oriented went to women, now it's about 20%.
I don't really give a rat's ass about all the social stuff that is or isn't considered feminism, but the wage thing gets me steamed. So, in that sense, yes I'm a feminist. Anyone who decides my abilities are diminished by my lack of penis can kiss my female ass. But that is all that they can kiss.

Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
That aside, how many of the 'feminists' (in quotes because f*ck if I know how everyone defines it) in this thread work for less pay than their male cohorts? If you are one that does, why do you put up with it? Why are you not sitting in your boss's office demanding more pay or calling the dept of labor?
Also, can I say "hey cutie, nice bacon" to a girl who isn't buying bacon? Or is that creepy?
