I'll take a leaf out of your book and say 'agitate for change'. And how would a New Zealander agitate for change in India, ignoring again that the Indians have it covered? Funny, because I've seen otherwise, like on nearly every feminist tumblr account and blog. I mean, if they think race is a 'soc...

What do you expect a random Western feminist to do about the state of her own country? Vote, agitate for change, and engage with the public, for starters. I mean, I wouldn't expect every feminist to do that, because most people have lives outside of a single issue. But they could do all that, certa...

When I say atrocities, I mean the gang rape epidemic in India, for example, which would seem like a big issue for all people, obviously, but especially women. How is Ebola an atrocity? Pretty sure the Indians have the whole 'public opinion' deal nailed down by themselves. What could a New Zealander...

The thing is in a decentralized structure those lunatics DO represent you to the general public at least. Have a look at the civil rights movement and now imagine it without MLK but still with the Black Panthers. There needs to be a moderate feminist organization which is moderately skilled at PR. ...

I'd sort of hope they were against poverty and pestilence, though. Obviously if they're fine with those, I'll happily concede that my post is inapplicable. That's not really the point. If you claim to be for a global movement against something, and then only focus on the patch you reside in, that's...

Sorry, are you agreeing with my idiotic hyperbole? Would you say that's how it should be? Not to the level you've taken it but recognizing they were too far to the left to actually get anything done and moving towards the center was exactly the tactic that got them a massive victory and allowed the...

Even women in the middle-east, where there really is a massive equality gap, and yet this is never the focus of feminism. Funny how western feminists turn a blind eye to some atrocities. I don't see you doing anything about the plight of the Ebola victims, or the civilians suffering in Gaza, or the...

Likewise, if left-wingers worked harder to distance themselves from communism and Stalin, it'd help. I'm not saying Stalinists are their fault, but they should be required to explicitly draw a line. What's the alternative? People concede that there are different kind of left-wingers, and most of th...

This may be a stupid question, but can't we just burn of the methane as it rises? As it rises over hundreds of thousands of square kilometres of ocean, in the form of tiny bubbles, in concentrations far lower than what's required to burn it off? Sadly, no. Any suggestion involving burning, consumpt...

They could certainly be doing better and present a more united front on certain issues. If a lot more feminists worked hard to distance themselves from mysandrists That'd probably help too.

Once more, you have no evidence for this. There was never any specific leanings specified by the U.S. Government during the Cold war. Under God is a broad term and is not legistatively or state-ively favoring any single religion/belief system/Religious system. You're clearly wrong, but it's irrelev...

Atheists still have the freedom to worship as they chose, believe as they choose and do as they choose. Those are the only criteria? In that case, "one nation" could be followed up with literally anything, since it wouldn't prevent people from worshipping, believing or doing as they chose...

Having the phrase "God" on there is not the Government setting a official position on Religion. God is a very very broad term and can mean alot of things, however it is generally assosciated with Religion. Thereby making it prejudiced against people with no religion, even if we're thick e...
