This is ridiculous to me, but I guess to be 100% fair to all who visit this page, I ought to post this statement up front:

I have made it clear from the outset that I am simply not interested in arguing with people with opposing views over the internet. To disregard that request is, in my view, trollish behavior. "Discussion" is a waste of my time. Every minute I spend "arguing" with someone (who has not arguments, but rather, beliefs) is a minute spent away from poastering, sending emails, making phone calls, trying to raise a little money, and other useful things to advance Occupy/Anon/anti-SOPA, and other progressive movements.

If someone wants to discuss on this page how to advance the goals of Occupy, Anon, anti-SOPA, pro-women, 'green,' etc., or, how to make these poasters more effective (including suggestions and requests), they will be welcomed and their comments will receive a courteous reply.  If people want to exchange friendly, admiring, helpful, or even flirtatious, back-and-forths on here, somehow related to the content, that's great.  If people want to point out technical problems, or, a possible infringement of someone else's work, I will be most attentive and gentlemanly.

If you want to argue with someone, fine, just do it with someone else, and not here.  I am dead-set in my convictions, and I have no interest in trying to persuade you that you should change your beliefs.  You can say whatever you want on your own page, but you may not do so here.

Now, as to the BANHAMMER.  If you engage in political trolling on this page (defined as arguing with what most would generally consider to be the pro-Occupy, pro-Anon position on the key issues of economic justice, peace, privacy, women's rights, environmentalism, internet freedom, and civil liberties), you will receive the BANHAMMER and be blocked.  If you even breathe the names Ayn Rand or Ron Paul or dare to utter any of her or his Objectionable-ist nonsense, you will receive the BANHAMMER and be blocked.  I also ban people who express misogynistic, racist, and other reactionary views, or, who express themselves with gross profanity.

I am no one special; I'm simply a guy who knows what he is doing here, why he is doing it, and wishes not to waste precious time that could be better spent fostering a humane democratic revolution around the world.  I am not some kind of anti-free speech troglodyte, but rather, really a nice guy, and a great listener.  It's just that after a while, one gets to a place where he wishes to be engulfed by the dulcet tones of artistic discourse and to eschew the coarse banter of Squawk Radio.

Capice?

This is as clear as I can possibly be.

This is fucking pathetic. So, if someone disagrees with you, you instantly ban them yet you only allow words of encouragement. I mean, it's totally ok if I kill someone, if somebody tells me to stop, I'll just ban them and completely ignore the fact that killing is wrong and I'll just listen to words of encouragement, GREAT LOGIC MY FELLOW!!!!!

When only a couple of commie drones agree with you to the point where you refuse to engage in any debate, maybe you should start questioning your positions

Not saying the majority is always correct by any mean, but well... refusing to debate is kinda telling

It doesn't matter what you want. What matters is what's right. And only on your journal do you tell people that. It's not your place ANYWHERE else. I will not discuss with you on ACTUAL equal rights as you only care about getting women what they want. And what they want in America is not equality. They've had superiority for a long ass time politically and legally.

SO GIT FUCKING GOOD AND DON'T TRY TO DEBATE ME ON YOUR PROPAGANDA YOU CUNT LICKING FUCKHEAD.

Name one advantage a man has even today, or even before, that is an oppression of women and not just them and their natural given advantages based on physiology. Name one reason I should give a shit about the WEST and it's women and not only care about a few middle eastern countries. If you can't, then you either concede the argument that you MIGHT engage in because I disagree, or you can be an actual fucking man and stop spewing shit and actually researching and knowing the difference between personal experience and statistics. Statistics can be ANY such report regardless of who makes it. Even the crime and rape reports by the CDC are not fit because the CDC researches and has a specialty in disease. Not crime. So find me actual reports by actual specialists who have not had a track record of bias through a record of only talking on "women's rights".

I don't waste time on people who's lives REALLY ARE A WHITE KNIGHTING WASTE OF TIME. If you don't want debate, go back to Youtube and scream at your keyboard and computer screen about how that man getting attacked by groups of women had no right to fight back, despite him being outclassed by sheer numbers. Go back and talk to your friends about how his pain from being castrated for daring to have an opinion and a life, and a family to go back to, does not compare to a woman being told her place in the food chain. The food chain works like this. Men are EQUAL to women. Meaning the women are equally deserving of being beaten down in their shit. If they dare to start shit, they have no right to say they didn't want shit. You either defend your life, or you die and stay dead. You cannot defend anyone else before you are able to know how to defend yourself. You either fight a female bitch attacker at Mc'Donalds who's throwing coffee and trying to rip your eyes out for nothing (While your equally white knigthish beta male friends allow her to) and live to defend the better women who are the few who are actual ladies in todays day and age, or you stay dead and stop wasting our air with this bullshit.

This has been your local manager on uncommon common sense. Because when the masses deny this that should be common sense, then you're in fucking trouble bruh. The banhammer is not a weapon. It's the tool of a fucking idiot. No one is scared. As long as you read something they type, they already won the argument. This is not a troll to entice flames. IT'S FUCKING KNOWLEDGE. SO GET A CLUE AND STICK SOME FUCKING ANAL CREAM IN YOU.

Citations? You can't say shit, and expect me to believe it. An egalitarian is more likely to be a skeptic until evidence is given. So go ahead. I'm waiting. Until then, I'll be visiting my neighbor, a man, who says he's had nothing but abusive, and even murderous relationships with women.

White Knighting never had a reason to exist. And even if Feminism did have a reason, that does not equate to today compared to before. Feminism is a cause that has died. Now people are just using it as an abused ideology that was born to achieve the same opportunities. And there is no proven evidence that shows women are less paid than men for no reason that doesn't equate to life choices.

The "life choices" point doesn't work. It's not the choices themselves, which people are free to make; it's what makes people choose certain things. Think of it like consumerism: people are free to choose what you want, but their desires are controlled and tempted by marketing. It's not that marketing just plays to demands which already exist; it creates them. That's what consumerism does; it's the reason why we think that we need things like smartphones.

It applies to this because gender is often used in marketing. It happens with differentiated toys, for example. Of course, now the reverse trend is happening as social attitudes change and increasing numbers of companies now brand themselves as "progressive" to try and appeal to these. They've already slid in front of the social sphere and tried to go full "cosmopolitan" - one example is the LGBT+ movement, which was originally sidelined by most people and targeted by radical leftists (after Marcuse gave the idea that it would be beneficial to join forces with sidelined people) but then got absorbed by capitalism as it became increasingly "revolutionary"; it now serves to please (neo)liberal consumers. Here's another, which fits in line with the idea that "feminism is dead" - at least, in conjunction with the ideas of "capitalist cultural takeover". Apart from movements which companies attach their brands whilst they develop, marketing itself drives the greatest part of culture in the modern Western world; it has done so since the 1960s and possibly before. As a whole, it's down to many factors, such as neomania.

Now I'm not saying that women themselves are not at fault; there are entrepreneurs who manage to make the system work for them. Most don't bother to think (like people in general), usually because they aren't educated/cultured to. I don't know if it's to do with the architecture of society or the idea of entitlements, but I don't have to dig that far just yet.

TL;DR: it's like voting in "democratic" systems. One is free to make the choice, but it's not necessarily an authentic choice due to marketing.

If you're wondering how I got here, I saw you destroy the OP and I wanted to see you wreck this other guy - which you did. You're smart, but just as the reductionist leftist narrative of capitalism being "the cause of everything bad" is something that can poison my thinking, the thought that it's the movements themselves and not what's actually happened to them is something that caught you out. Also, not all feminists happen to be Tumblrinas and liberals; the buzzing guy might've met a few who aren't bogged down in neoliberalism - although his pointing to "male guilt" might say otherwise. You got him by the balls (if he has any).

I guess I'll take the second serve.

I should've said this earlier, but I believe that feminism isn't yet dead. It is only being killed by neoliberalism; the narrative survives due to marketing even if inequality decreases. The empowerment is a hook which is used for marketing purposes. Meanwhile, feminism that doesn't reside within the same social sphere as the "establishment" itself is truly revolutionary.

If someone else said the same things, I would still come out of nowhere and make roughly the same arguments and comments. I'm just lurkin'.

You meeting Feminists doesn't equate to all or most. What you meet, and what other meet, does.

Wikipedia is not a source worth noting. Definitions do not decide the quality of actions. 90% of everything sucks. FEMINISM INCLUDED. NOT THE EXCEPTION.

The definition of Feminism doesn't even stare human rights equality. It states FOR women. Not for all.

MULTIPLE SITES DO NOT EQUATE TO FACT.

Statistics are more often than not bullshit. You do not understand frustration because you lack genuine frustration because you, if you were smart enough, would know that a site does not equate to proving anything.

Someone sent me a rape report by the CDC. You know why it's bullshit? WHAT DOES THE CDC DO?

Rape research?

Crime research?

OR WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO DO AND REPORT ON DISEASE AND SHIT LIKE MEDICAL STUFF?

The point is that statistics are not proof. No statistic by any such online source would prove superior to a persons personal experience. They're not the cake. They are the icing on the cake. And most GOV sites would not give out such evidence because crime reports by the government are some heavy confidential shit.

Two things:
One: So, if someone has a disagreement over the subject matter of one of your poasters, are they allowed to have a thoughtful, intellectual discussion with you or anyone else on said poaster? I'm saying this because no one person and I have the exact same beliefs. It's only a matter of time before I find one of your poasters that I disagree with. 
Two: What program/software/etc. do you use to make your poasters? I'm just curious.

I defiantly agree with this, sometimes its virtually impossible for anyone to just state there view due to the shear amount of people attempting to force there opinions on you,

When ever I try to bring anything up to do with women as a feminist, I eather end up being yelled at for being a feminist, or get given a list of issues to do with men-
People often don't even play attention to what you are saying and try to turn it into an argument rather than helping to solve any issues for anyone :-(
