We're not saying it's equivalent. We're disputing it's natural. Men and women is a construct. Testosterone is not instant sex drive-maker, and it actually inhibits sex drive without estrogen in your body. Every person is different, and gendered social immersion is very important and definitely shap...

What "lower sex drive"? You mean the one imposed on us by the Victorians that we're still trying to get clear of? I stipulate that this "lower sex drive" you speak of is a result of residual conditioning, not any actual physiological lack of drive. Again: looking at the culture ...

Yes, I'm aware the historical image of women as asexual, pure beings who only engage in sex for procreation is not exactly accurate. However, even in sexually libertine environments the instances of female catcalling approach zero, while the male equivalent remains through the roof. (In my anecdota...

Seeing as women rarely engage in catcalling, I'd say there's a fairly large sexual component to the behaviour. Absolutely not. Women can be very sexual - a significant percent of them, mind you - as well, the domination of men in many areas of life such as sexuality has to do with a power relations...

Except catcalling isn't about sex or finding women attractive or compliments - it's about a deep, profound, ingrained lack of respect for themselves and the women they torment. Seeing as women rarely engage in catcalling, I'd say there's a fairly large sexual component to the behaviour, rather than...

I guess I should just file Turkey in the same category as North Korea so I stop being disappointed every time the government drags them backwards another few decades.

Oog, careful. You're inviting people to complain about how feminism is shit and men are super persecuted. Any suggestions on how we can get boys to step into the forbidden worlds of the pink toys?

These two points are mutually exclusive. You're going to have to pick one; low hydrocarbon prices, or low pollution.

The Government should, in my opinion, force the companies to produce these drugs, and can then buy them, but should not, by any means, take control. How would you want them to take control, anyhow? By purchasing them? :? You don't think they should take control, you just think they should be in con...

As new techniques develop, we pollute less while producing more. The carbon content of hydrocarbons is not affected by new extraction techniques. Carbon dioxide is the pollutant of primary concern. Other emissions can be dealt with by proper oversight of extraction facilities. Green energy agendas ...

fracking has been going on for 60 years, only just recently have we been able to do it at this state. I'm aware. fracking is mostly used for natural gas and there are strict regulations placed on them. They are a transition energy that meets the demand like no other source can at an insanely cheap ...

Fracking is a rather complicated issue. Sure it poses risks to our environment, but it's a more efficient process of producing energy. ...no it isn't.
